  • I could look at Gale Harold FOREVER

    8.0
    Just started watching by chance and I'm so happy I did. It's hilarious sometimes, sad other times and a lesson in accpetance, understanding, compassion and love many times. It would be so nice if Showtime and the cast were up for a reunion.
  • I finally understand why I'm so pissed off about getting cancer!

    When I watched the episodes about Brian and his dealings with cancer, I finally understood why I was such a bitch throughout my breast cancer treatment. I am a capable, independent independent woman and it pissed me off to think that I was was expected to rely on others during my treatment. Three months after my treatment ended, I saw how Brian was dealing with his cancer treatment and it all clicked! I was trying to do this all in my own. I have been feeling great every since I saw the episodes. It changed my life!moreless
  • Adaptation Done Right

    9.0
    This is one of the few shows were the American adaptation met or, in this case, truly surpassed the original series. It was heartfelt without being overly sentimental; it was accurate without being cruel. I mean, don't get me wrong, Charlie Hunnam makes an adorable little twink, but the Americans (and Canadians) really got it right with this one.
  • BRING THE SHOW BACK

  • IT'S NOT BEN AFFLECK

    News Briefs: Netflix Casts a Boardwalk Empire Star as Daredevil

    Plus: HBO is developing a gay-rights drama, Graham Yost is developing another spy drama, and The Flash makes John Wesley Shipp a dad.
