  • The Zombie Apocalypse Makes Metaphoric Sense

    The Zombie Apocalypse Makes Metaphoric Sense

    As a metaphor, the zombie apocalypse makes a lot of sense. I can say “Global warming is the zombie apocalypse,” and you get my metaphor.

    The New Doctor Who

    Lorraine Toussaint and Annie Potts Together Again on The Fosters

    From 1998 to 2002 a series called Any Day Now captured my devoted attention. It starred Annie Potts as Mary Elizabeth (M.E.) Sims and Lorraine Toussaint as Rene Jackson. The two grew up together in Birmingham, Alabama in the 1960’s. Despite their difference in race and the upheavals and violence of the civil rights movement […]

    Must Watch Show: Switched at Birth Renewed for a 3rd Season

    Switched at Birth on ABC Family is a terrific series. The announcement came this week that it’s renewed for a 3rd season. I originally watched because I’m a Marlee Matlin fan and like shows that feature sign language, but I quickly got caught up in the story and interested in the characters.
