Good Cop, Bad Cop

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has me thinking about superheroes.  It’s making me remember a Superman panel where he’s talking to Nightwing — in a park, in the middle of the night — when a police officer comes upon them: It’s a sweet moment.  It says, “Remember the everyday heroes. They keep us safe, too.”  And like last […]

Sunday Night, Monday Morning

I work a full time job, which, unfortunately, is not watching tv or writing about it. So, I’m going to have to condense my thoughts about all the tv I watched Sunday night.  And, yes, it is two days late.  Like I said, I work a fulltime job. Enjoy!     The Leftovers Kevin, Sr. finally […]

Northwest Passage

It is dawn and a man is going fishing.  As he walks along the shore of a lake she’s easy to miss.  Our eyes are on the man, on the beauty surrounding him.  She is just a small, white shape on the shore.  She could be a rock for all we know.  But as the […]

Twin Peaks Countdown

For the past two days, I’ve been agonizing over how to start this blog project.  I wanted to talk about how I first became conscious of Twin Peaks — a front page photo and article in my hometown paper’s Saturday television section.  I even tried writing a sloppy comparison to one’s first time having sex.  […]
