Impressions: M*A*S*H- Baby, It’s Cold Outside

M*A*S*H is a war dramedy that follows the antics of a surgical hospital placed close to the front lines of the Korean War. It was adapted from the 1970s film of the same name and ran for an impressive 11 seasons from 1972 to 1983. A major theme about MASH is that while it was […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- Sticks and Stones

Hello everybody. I hope you are ready to take another quick trip back to Cabot Cove because I would like to write about another Murder She Wrote episode. Season 2, episode 10 is called Sticks and Stones, and it stands out to me in the series for a few reasons, notably who the killer ends […]

Impressions: Azumanga Daioh

Before we deep dive into this, I need to get something out of the way. This otherwise bright show has one major dark spot, Mr. Kimura. This openly… something… for high school students trope is sadly something that shows up in some anime as the attitude toward it is slightly different. I will not go […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- A Lady in the Lake

So this is sort of an interesting Murder, She Wrote episode in that it both is and isn’t a Cabot Cove one. Technically the episode takes place outside of Cabot Cove, with Jessica staying at a rather nice hotel to get away and write for a while. However, it is close to Cabot Cove, so […]

Impressions: Ted Lasso

So this is a break from our holiday-related Impressions (although I will attempt to bring it around), and this show is certainly different from what I normally write about. However, and probably related to my dad being a coach, I will have the occasional soft spot for sports-related shows and movies. It is not often, […]

Impressions: Murder, She Wrote- A Christmas Secret

We are back in Cabot Cove again (one day, I might give my Impressions on a non-Cabot Cove episode) this time for a Christmas episode, A Christmas Secret. This episode can actually get a little confusing as it has a relatively large cast of new characters, but it is a good one. It also has […]

Impression: Murder, She Wrote- Keep the Home Fries Burning

As I mentioned in my last look at a Murder She Wrote episode, I have recently been re-watching this quite a bit. The Cabot Cove episodes have been getting the biggest workout, and this is one of my favorites. While the mystery itself has a bit of a sad conclusion, the entire episode is rather […]

31 Days of Horror: Creepshow- All Hallows Eve/The Man in the Suitcase

I felt this would be a good duo to round out the Halloween viewing. Sort of an interesting blend of two very different stories. I enjoyed them both, but not sure how well they tied together. All Hallows Eve This one starts with two preteens meeting up preparing for a night out for Halloween. Both […]

31 Days of Horror: Creepshow- The Companion/Lydia Layne’s Better Half

So this was my first dive into anything Creepshow. The movies had always been one of those dark marks on my “I can’t believe I haven’t seen this yet” list. I like horror anthologies. I often feel as though we get caught up in long-form and forget that short but sweet little pieces can be […]
