The show is an anthology so each season is set up like a mini-series that follows different characters and locations. The first season is set in present Continue Reading

I recently returned from a weeklong family reunion: there were five families and three generations in one house, including a dozen children under 19. During the week we were together, including one rainy day and night, I noticed that only the family members over 30 watched TV. Scattered among the children were two tablets, an iPod touch and lots of smart phones – and these devices provided all of the kids’ video entertainment for the week.  Just a couple of years ago, I recall our reunion included several nights of Continue Reading

MONDAY – How I Met Your Mother – 8PM – CBS We knew that Ted and Victoria (cake girl from Season 1) would not last forever, which is why they have to be the next couple to break up.

Sometimes we just need to go back to our roots.

Will Smith’s antics stretch from testing the limits of his rich and uppity uncle to trying to woo every Continue Reading
