TV series review: TNT’s I Am the Night

Streaming services are super for binge-watching shows of all sorts. But every once in a while, good things come to those who wait. Wait, that is, for the next eagerly anticipated episode of a seriously suspenseful series to broadcast.

Such is the case with I AM THE NIGHT, a compelling limited series (six episodes) premiering January 28, 2019, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT. A new series to which I was given advanced access by TNT to review and share with you. (Admittedly, my husband and I binge-watched it over two nights. What can I say? It’s part of the job!)

Saturday movie briefs: What I watched on my summer vacation

Netflix original series

Time's up!

Here's the skinny on what I...

My The Voice prediction

I'm not much of a fan of country music. There are a few artists in that genre whom I enjoy listening to, but when naming my favorite tunes and talents, country songs and singers aren't among them.

I am a huge fan of The Voice, though. And this current season, which wraps up tomorrow night, has been pretty much the best, featuring the best talent so far. It's also the season that's turning me into a bit of a country music fan. At least where one artist is concerned.

The one artist? Adam Wakefield. I love this kid. He's an amazing musician... and has proven his skill in singing and playing southern rock and blues (faves of mine) as well as country. I have no doubt he can sing most any genre he sets his heart on.

I also have no doubt that — and here's my prediction — Adam Wakefield will win this season of The Voice. Yes, I put that in writing. His most recent performance is just one of the many reasons why:

Here and now: August 20, 2015

In my world...

clock and book

On my mind...

On NBC News Tuesday night, there was a report of an unscrupulous doctor who had been egregiously knowingly misdiagnosing patients with MS. Such a horrible thing to do. I have MS. BUT, though his actions are unconscionable, that's not what most stuck with me after viewing the report. What did stick with me was a comment from one of the women incorrectly diagnosed. She stated that...
