Heart Guy Pulls the View In – User Review
27 July 2017 4:51 PM, PDT
This show is a bit more than “Northern Exposure” meets “Doc Martin”, though it has the same elements.
The show has 2 to 3 stories per episode which keeps things interesting. Obviously, Dr. Knight’s exile to his hometown Whyhope makes things interesting in itself. Within the show, you have at least 2 groups where there is some tension –his family with his domineering mother and the hospital personnel which include some interesting characters and situations. Then there are his childhood friends which include one he is trying to save.
Going out to see patients by air makes for many interesting situations. There are an unlimited number of situations to grow this show. It is a very enjoyable show with an occasional twist.

Girls Season 6 DVD Giveaway

Girls has been the cause of controversy since it first aired, and just when you thought the discussion would die down, the show would up its unusual game to a new level. That was never more true than in its sixth season as the show milled lazily along with Hannah (Lena Dunham) as she explored one non-existent existential crisis after another, buoying disinterest and uninterestingness to heights unimaginable.
Perhaps the show’s oddest feature is its rewatchability, among those who can’t stand to watch it at all, and that is likely a result of the true depths of the at-first-glance depthless characters. Hannah is nothing if not a bizarre layering of compulsive analysis and mind-boggling lack of vision, and pulling her apart the way the show does is its own brand of magic.
While as many hate the show as love it, Girls fends off most criticism »

Midnight, Texas TV Review – Charlaine Harris Returns To TV With Lighter Fare
24 July 2017 3:29 PM, PDT
Fans of True Blood (and/or Charlaine Harris) will likely be excited for the return of work by a favorite author, but Midnight, Texas is a very different sort of fantasy. While True Blood was entering a very different television scene, and tried its best to keep a straight face, Midnight, Texas finds itself wandering into a post-Blood world, which is one that is populated by Marvel heroes and the likes of Sleepy Hollow and Preacher. Playing things “seriously” in the fantasy world isn’t quite the same thing anymore.
Midnight is a town that has become something of a safe haven for a variety of oddballs. Manfred (François Arnaud) wanders into town because he’s a medium and his dead grandmother told him it would be a good place to hide from the mysterious stranger Manfred owes some money. Of course, he didn’t realize he was heading to »
