Apologies for the lack of Wednesday post – I had ankle surgery and I am still recovering. I hope to get back to regular blog posts soon.

Read

National Geographic

  • April 2017
  • July 1978
  • December 1937
  • June 1964

April 2017 had a lot of interesting things about the future of human beings and the way technology can help correct problems such as colour blindness. 

National Geographic History – July/August 2018

Singled Out – Bella DePaulo: Really enjoyed reading this. It’s nice to see other points of view especially when we live in a culture that prefers marriage and children over singlehood.

Watched

Grimm

3×17 Synchronicity – loved that Nick had to hold back Juliette as she went for Adalind. That whole scene was really well done.

3×18 The Law of Sacrifice

3×19 Nobody Knows The Trubel I’ve Seen – not sure they really need a new character at this point, but okay.

3×20 My Fair Wesen – still don’t really care about Trubel, but looks like we’re stuck with her for now.

I cannot tell you how much I love this show. It’s been fantastic since the beginning, but ever since they added Aiden to the show, it has just gotten better. I love watching it and I can’t wait to see more of it!

8×1 Blood and Bone

8×2 Black Ice

8×3 Home

8×4 Dark Water

NCIS LA

9×3 Assets

9×4 Plain Sight – This episode just confirmed I want to keep Harley and get rid of Mosley

9×5 Mountebank -There was one scene in this episode that just ruined it for me, and when Arkady is involved, it is very difficult to ruin an episode. But Callen’s inference that Nell had told Mosley about his alias being compromised was just insulting, to both Nell and to the audience who all KNEW Nell would never share that kind of information with Mosley. Do better, Callen. And apologise.

Black Lightning

1×13 Shadow of Death: The Book of War – well that was a season finale! So glad Jennifer decided to start using her powers – she’s so much more interesting.

Elementary 

5×20 The Art of Sleights and Deception

5×21 Fly Into a Rage, Make a Bad Landing – This show is honestly one of the best in terms of character progression I have ever seen. In earlier seasons, Sherlock would NEVER have said anything about Bell being a better man, and that in fact, being a better man was more important than a better detective. We also wouldn’t have seen the apology from Bell either. I am so sorry this show is ending with Season 7 because it’s just a gem that has no equal on television.
