So, I was driving home from my Louisville vacay getaway yesterday. I mean, all day yesterday: Left at 9:30 am, home at 11:30 pm. Downton Abbey (or any other television) didn’t happen.

Christmas Comes But Once a Year - Peggy arrives

Posting will be light to non-existent between now and the New Year. We’ll be back in force in January. Basket of Kisses shows that are back on the air are Hell on Wheels and Downton Abbey in January, and Better Call Saul in February. We’re also starting our Mad Men rewatch in January, and we will probably blog Billions.

The following week, I was part of a similar event at The Strand in Manhattan, but I had another commitment the night of the Brooklyn event. The podcast that the Vulture created was recorded in part […]

Masters of Sex delay SORRY

Sep 21, 2015

Yeah, well, here’s my life. I got back from a week in Texas on business, went straight from the airport to a poorly-planned weekend away, and got home in to pack for a business trip to Vegas today. Last night I had a choice between watching Jon Hamm win the Emmy and watching Masters of […]

Sep 7, 2015

For years now, my goal has been to make Basket of Kisses the ultimate reference guide to Mad Men (among other things). Well, I’ve done it! So, every single episode is recapped. I don’t mean reviewed (which is what “recap” passes for these days). I mean that if you go to any season episode guide, […]

Open Thread: Talk Among Yourselves

Hell on Wheels will be late. Turns out even middle-aged writers go out Saturday nights. Masters of Sex will be along.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, where’s my Masters of Sex? Where’s Hell on Wheels? ANYTHING? ANYBODY? Roberta and I have been working very long hours on a very short deadline for a thrilling writing project, which we will tell you about really soon. Unfortunately, and temporarily, it has taken us away from the […]
