The Serpent Queen is wickedly good!
September 11th, 2022 under Starz!. [ Comments: none ]

As England mourns Queen Elizabeth II, Starz is giving us The Serpent Queen tonight.

The Serpent Queen is the story of the French Queen Catherine de’ Medici (Samantha Morton and Liv Hill). Medici was born in Italy to wealthy parents who left her an orphan at a very young age. She did not have an easy upbringing, but that didn’t stop the King of Italy from marrying her off to Prince Henry of France.

The Prince was already in love with her distant cousin, and he was not interested in having sex with her. Therefore, she was not able to give him an heir. The longer it takes her to get pregnant, the better the chances she will be discarded.

However, the King of France fancied her brain, so he kept her around. Now, she will do anything and hurt anyone to become the Queen and give her husband, his future King.

How far will she go? Further than the other evil Queens whose stories we have learned.

While Catherine de’ Medici’s reign was ugly, Starz’s telling of it is beautiful. So sit back and watch a real-life Royal story that does not have a happy ending. And I prefer this to the fairy tales we grew up with.

My only negative is that they got English actors to play the roles of French and Italians.


Will we find out if Sam Heughan is a true Scot in Men In Kilts?
June 10th, 2020 under Sam Heughan, Starz!. [ Comments: none ]

There is only one reason to watch Outlander, the view. Technically that is two reasons because the view includes looking at Scotland and Sam Heughan. Now those two things are going to be combined in the upcoming Starz! series Men In Kilts.

Men means that there is more than one man that is part of the show, and he is not doing the trek by himself. Heughan will be joined by his TV uncle, Graham McTavish, as they take a road trip around the picturesque country. Will McTavish’s fate be the same as it was on the show? You know, as in only one of them will make it home alive?

Does that matter? We want to see why they call it Men In Kilts! Hopefully, they will also don mini-kilts as compared to the ones that go down to their knees! We want to see those mountains!

Sorry, I got lost in my naughty thoughts. Seriously, I can’t wait to watch this show because it will be interesting to see and learn about Scotland through their adventure.


Outlander’s Sam Heughan’s carpet doesn’t match the drapes
April 8th, 2016 under Fred and Ben Savage, Kelly Ripa, Sam Heughan, Starz!. [ Comments: none ]

Sam Heughan was on Live with Kelly and Michael today and Kelly Ripa wanted to know if it is true that he is not a ginger. The Outlander star told her, “I am not a Gingy, I am a dirty dirty blond.” That revelation was too much for Fred Savage and the audience to handle.
What I want to know, is what else about him is also dirty dirty?
When it comes to the beautiful period drama, it will finally be back on Starz this Sunday.


Blunt Talk is crazy, just not crazy enough!
August 22nd, 2015 under Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen, Starz!. [ Comments: none ]

When I heard that the lovable Sir Patrick Stewart was going to play an television anchor who is on the verge of losing it, I got excited for Blunt Talk that debuts at 9p on Starz tonight. Then I saw the first two episodes, and I was disappointed.
Walter Blunt is the anchor of a nightly news show and his ratings are declining. He’s afraid that they are going to fire him, so he is drinking more than usual. One night when he assistant Harry is sleeping in the backseat, he has too much to drink. He goes for a drive picks up a prostitute and gets caught by the police. But he doesn’t just get arrested, he causes an over the top scene that gets caught by cameras. Now everyone knows about the arrest and he needs to save his job.
Now that would be fun if they threw caution to the wind, but they didn’t. They hold back too much and what could’ve been a wild and crazy show, is just there. It’s like going out with your friends for a night you will never forget and having one glass of wine. Boring, right? This show is on Starz and it should the wildest show on TV, and not something that should be broadcast. Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll gets it right on FX, and this show gets it wrong. So if you have nothing else to watch tonight, then I say watch this. But sadly, you can skip it and you won’t be missing anything. Which is a shame because Sir Patrick Stewart deserves so much more than this.


Magic City is a magical place where you will want to live every Friday night
April 6th, 2012 under Starz!. [ Comments: none ]

Anyone who has been to Miami knows it is a magical place, and we have heard from relatives that the late ’50s were a magical time. Tonight at 10p Starz! combines the two for Magic City.
The Miramar Hotel is the hottest spot in Miami and Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan – a role he was born to play) is running the joint. While everything seems beautiful on the outside, things inside are a much different story. Mobster Ben Diamond (Danny Huston) is back in town and he wants control of the hotel, but Evans isn’t willing to give him everything he wants. This probably isn’t a good decision on his part because Diamond is crazy and has no regards for life and will kill anything and anyone that crosses his path the wrong way.
Besides dealing with Diamond, Evans has to do deal with his wife, two grown up sons, a coming of age daughter, Cuban workers with family stuck in their native land trying to get out, the union wanting the hotel unionized and people suddenly going missing. Will he be able to manage all of that like he manages the hotel? You will have to tune to find out in this retro drama that is filled with sex, booze and blood. Just like Miami was and always will be behind the glitz of it all.
