Review and Recap of the CW's Jane The Virgin: This Girl is Resilient and Makes for Empowering, Engaging and Must-Binge TV
By Kelly Cronin


Jane The Virgin, the CW's award-winning drama about Jane Villanueva as she navigates becoming an adult while also becoming a mother, will be going into its fourth season this coming October. The series recently wrapped up the third season, which brought many changes to Jane’s life as well as the death of her husband, Michael mid-season. Jane’s resilience is quite admirable in her time of grief and it is clear she inherited her strength from the women who raised her: Alba, her grandmother and Xiomara, her mother. Throughout the course of the series, Jane and her motherly figures have disagreed and argued, but ultimately they are the ones who taught her how to be resilient in the face of adversity. http://www.suzeebehindthescenes.com/2017/07/review-and-recap-of-jane-virgin-on-cw.html

Goodbye to Two Sitcom TV Legends, The Partridge Family's Reuben Kincaid and Gilligan Island's "The Professor"

Growing up in the 70's, I tell my kids, there really wasn't a whole lot on TV to watch. I don't think they can even fathom the fact that we had about 7 channels to watch. And we had to change those channels by hand. On the East Coast in the NY area, this was CBS, NBC, ABC, a local channel on 5, 9 and 11 and fuzzy PBS on 13 and maybe something else fuzzy if one played with the channel dial a bit. UHF, VHF? It was just fun trying to find something else.

Review of Winterthorne: Wonderfully Wicked


Like most people of my generation, (I am not a millenial) I am not used to watching web series. I'm a soap gal. And a TV gal. But I am being enticed to the Internet because of all the soap people populating these shows. Knowing some of the people involved in a new four part series, Winterthorne, I decided to give it a look.

Goodbye Finn, Goodbye Cory
GLEE puts together a superb tribute in “The Quarterback.” By Di's Dish

I have been a fan of Glee from day one and have seen every episode.  Finn Hudson was one of my favorite television characters of all time.  He was lovable, talented, earnest, and was always trying to do the right thing.  The creators of Glee tackled a difficult subject with the untimely death of Cory Monteith, and they delivered a tasteful and moving episode.  They also delivered an essay on grieving.
