Real Thing

Evelyn Lowery wife of Civil Rights Leader, Rev. Joseph Lowery died in Atlanta overnight.  I had the privilege of meeting and working with Mrs. Lowery in the mid- 90’s.  A project for AIDS Research, we served on the steering committee together, she was a vibrant, kind woman whose heart was in the right place.  The world was a better place with her in it.

I heard such great things about NBC’s The Blacklist that I set my DVR to record the Pilot.  Last night I got around to watching.  WOW, within 10 minutes my DVR was set to record the entire season.  James Spader is awesome and the twists and turns pretty amazing!  This is the kind of television I love, suspenseful, intelligent, well acted and written, BRAVO to you NBC for a great new scripted show for the Fall season.

Speaking of awesome television, I am almost finished with Season 2 of Scandal on ABC, I should be caught up by the time Season 3 hits the airwaves.

How cool is 41?!?!?!?

Selig to retire.

I had a chance to watch Sunday Night’s episode on The Newsroom from HBO last night.  While the skipping back and forth in years is a bit confusing at times, the Maggie storyline was heartbreaking.  The poignancy of a simple blonde comment broke me when I realized the significance in the final scene.  This is such good television, it should be recognized as one of the best.

Speaking of good television, “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” continues to give me a heart racing thrill every week, last night’s move across a gorge and eel hunt was awesome.  Bear made the right call by eliminating Wilson and Robin.

Unfortunately they just were not as strong as the other pairs, but they went for a great adventure.  My prediction for final 2 pairs have changed a bit, they are….

Royce_Kyle_2 My gays Royce and Kyle

Jeff_Chris_2 Jeff and Chris, it is a toss-up as to who will win.
