Hilarious movie. They did a great job on this sequel. I wanted it with Kristi and my sister Heather. We laughed and laughed!

Bottom line: Funny stuff. A great holiday fun movie!

The Mentalist (2008 - present)

Okay so I knows it's not a movie, but we watched several episodes and it was on DVD so I figure it counts. I think this is the best crime/mystery series on tv. It's my very favorite.

Bottom Line: Amazing. Witty. Hilarious. Full of drama. Great story. Wonderful characters. Perfect cast. I love it! You should watch it.

Saturday Night

John Muir in the New World (2011)

I watched this while I fixed my wool socks (sometimes I just can't believe how cool I am). This was great. I think John Muir is an American hero. Everyone ought to know about him. He was very influential in saving many of our natural and national treasures.

Bottom Line: If you like American history it's wonderful. A great documentary. Watch it! PBS rocks!

The Misfits (1961)

 My first time watching this film! I was very happy to find it playing on TCM. My goodness, what a film! If you doubt Marilyn Monroe as an actress, this film ought to change your mind!

Bottom Line: A fantastic movie. Well worth your time. I'll probably buy it sometime.

The Mentalist (2008 - present)

See above.


Little Women (1933)

The best version of Little Women as far as I'm concerned. Everytime I read the books I picture these characters just as they are played in this movie. Katharine Hepburn is the perfect Jo. I just adore this story. It speaks to my heart.

Bottom Line: Every girl ought to know this story. It's so lovely and perfect.

The Muppet Show (1967 - 1981)

Gene Kelly and Muppets via MuppetWiki

So fun! We watched an episode with Gene Kelly and then one with Julie Andrews. Delightful. This sort of entertainment is only to be found in recordings of the past.

Bottom Line: The Muppet Show is great! Should be a family favorite. Watch it with anyone who loves real, solid entertainment.


  1. I love the muppet show!!!! Do you have episodes of it? I would totally ask to borrow them. :) I really should also watch the misfits. It sounds great.

    1. I don't but the library does! They are awesome.

      You would love the Misfits.You would totally get it. Marilyn is so fantastic in it!
