Review of Gilligan's Better Call Saul Season 6A: Masterful, Suspenseful and the Unexpected with Outstanding Performances by Patrick Fabian and Rhea Seehorn

By Ashton Samson

Every once in a while, something monumental springs into existence that unintentionally emphasizes the need for our society to do things in a less brisk and more leisurely manner. The Covid-19 Pandemic, for all the grief and sorrow it caused on a global scale, taught me that spending time with one’s family as a homebody can be more fulfilling and important than rushing from one stress-inducing place to the next in a cyclical and harried manner. 

If you understandably would rather not learn this important lesson from a pandemic, look no further than the less deadly and more comforting world of television. Better Call Saul Season 6A is classic Vince Gilligan, a carefully constructed and gradual explosion into television mastery that emphasizes how a slow accumulation of details and plot can lead to a fulfilling denouement. Take things slow, in reality and in scriptwriting!

Night Sky On Prime Video a Refreshing Blend of Time Travel and Human Drama - Outstanding Performances by Sissy Spacek and JK Simmons Make it a Must-See for Sci-Fi Fans

By Suzanne Ordas Curry

If you're a fan of Outer Range, or Resident Alien, you'll probably like Night Sky.

I am a fan of time travel movies and shows. Some make sense and follow time travel principles, other's don't. Actually, that's a joke because time travel does not exist so really all these shows can just make stuff up as they go along.

YES Network Baseball Analyst Jack Curry Pens Third Book, A Memoir on Paul O'Neill Entitled "Swing and Hit: Nine Innings of What Baseball Taught Me" - A Must Read for Fans of a Good Game of Baseball

By Suzanne Ordas Curry

"He’s up in his office, I haven’t seen him in quite some time. He's working on the book."  That’s what I hear from my sister-in-law Pamela, Jack Curry‘s wife. Being the wife of a baseball analyst and writer, she knows his job is not the usual 9-5er.  From his days at the Jersey Journal to the New York Times to the YES Network, Pamela knows when Jack is squirreled away and wants no interruptions except to replace his cup of hot tea.

As my brother-in-law I know how hard he works - this was his third book -  and yet he still manages even with his crazy schedule to make time to make all of our family events. I remember when my older son had a surgery and when my son woke up he had an autographed baseball from his favorite player next to his hospital bed.  Yes there are some perks to having a baseball analyst and writer in the family! And of course family gatherings are always filled with "inside baseball" information.
