I Can’t Give You Anything but Love, Baby…

Cary Grant statueWhen I was in college, I had a roommate who loved old black and white films. When she realized that my classic movie knowledge didn’t extend beyond old movie musicals, she told me that we were going to fix that. We made a list, set up a classic film night once a week and steadily made our way through some of the best old black and white movies. I quickly discovered that my favorites were the screwball comedies starring Cary Grant, usually as the slightly confused, but always debonair love interest.

The Doctor is Back!

TARDISWhen I was little, I remember watching this old British sci fi show on PBS with my parents.

First airing in 1963, Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction show on television. It has taken a few breaks over the years, but it always comes back better than ever. This Saturday the new series, starring Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor (the Doctor regenerates after traumatic experiences, allowing for new actors to take over) premieres on BBCA. I know I’ll be watching!

As an avid television watcher, I confess I dread this time of year. Late spring. The end of a season for the lucky shows, and the end of a series for the unlucky. I always find myself compulsively checking the lists of TV shows each studio has renewed or axed, waiting for the verdict on all my favorites.
