    as usual, i love the embroidery art. so much so, that i will try it myself… i have a diverse bunch of foreign bills around.

    i know this sounds stupid naive, but it’s hard for me to understand how Spacey could use his coming out as “cover” for his bad acts.

    When my beau and I tried to watch House of Cards I had to leave the room. Ned asked me why and I said, “there’s something about Keven Spacey that creeps me out.” He said, “the person or the character?” I said, “the person.” Now I know why.

    Outstanding L.A. photos!

    The embroidery!!

    That is the most rando TV list ever. Some good (Better Things), some utter shit.

    So happy to see BoJack Horseman make that best of TV list! I feel like it just doesn’t get the love it deserves. The political themes this season are HILARIOUS.

    I recommend “The Good Place” to anyone who will listen. It’s hilariously clever, and the casting is spot-on.

    Odd, but Spacey always weirded me out, too.

    Btw, some great – HILARIOUS =shows : I’m Sorry (TruTV), Rosehaven (Sundance)and Playing House (USA).

    Mindhunters is addictive TV at it’s best.

  8. Francine says:

    BTW, most of those shows (aside from Outlander, which I love), on that list…ick. Especially, that show, Younger, is beyond dreadful. The premise is embarrassing.

    What is it about Kevin Spacey and his creep factor? I’ve had since “The Usual Suspects.”
