The Hobbit

I liked the songs. I liked the riddle game. The Hobbit hole. The story of Thorin’s fame.   I thought fight scenes. Were certainly overdone. For smiths and toymakers, battles should be hard won.   The trolls were good, and Rivendell did look sweet, and Radagast was fun, his rabbits were neat.   But it … Continue reading

Then … Continue reading

Why I want to hate Elementary on CBS

I am a SHERLOCK fan. If you haven’t noticed then you are not very observant. And the fact that I have started my post with an insult is evidence that I have been watching way too much Sherlock Holmes this year. Sherlock, if you don’t know, is a television show on BBC in the UK. … Continue reading
