Arrow season 2

One of my favorite shows from last year was Arrow, and season two is starting soon. If you didn’t catch this awesome show last season, here’s what it’s about:Stephen Amell stars as Oliver Queen, a billionaire who becomes shipwrecked and tortured on a remote island in the South Pacific for 5 years. He escapes and becomes a vigilante for justice in his hometown only using a bow and arrow.

While the show is based on the DC comic series Green Arrow, the producers have decided to keep any meta-humans with superpowers clear of the show. You won’t be seeing Superman or Wonder Woman running around the streets of Starling City, but we will get to see other DC characters this season.

Black Canary and The Flash will join the cast for season 2, as well as some more villains for Ollie to kick around. I can’t wait!

My favorite time of the year!

October has finally arrived! Up north, it means cooler air and the changing of leaves. Here in Florida, it means bales of hay and pumpkins for decorations and the smell of cinnamon brooms in the air.

My cats can sense the change in the season. Lannister always wants to be on the porch, he’s the wildest of our brood. He loves nothing more than chasing the hapless lizards he finds and yowling to the neighborhood that he’s outside. Grendel is our little diva, he definitely doesn’t like to be hot. He will go outside if I’m out there, but he doesn’t like to be trapped out there. Neko only likes to go outside when it’s cool. She sleeps most of the time, moving from one bed to another. Hey, she’s 17, sleeping is her life.

Like my cats, I’m wishing for cooler weather. I’ll cross my fingers and hope for the best.

Fall means cooking yummies

As we move farther into fall, we are still having a heat wave here in Florida. Our rains have turned into smoldering heat, and many of our plants are drying up. I’m scrambling to water when I can to keep my flowers and herbs happy.

I love trying new recipes, and with my husband and I trying to eat more healthy, the tips and tricks I’ve learned make it easier to make tasty and healthy dishes.

A few nights ago I made roasted butternut squash with blue cheese. The blue cheese was a little bit strong, but the richness of the dish would pair well with roasted chicken or pork.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. is… So Good!

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a team of new S.H.I.E.L.D agents. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. That’s right, Coulson lives!

Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist; and new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet).

So far the show has been awesome, with fan favorite tidbits like Coulson’s flying car L.O.L.A., a cameo from Nick Fury himself Samuel L. Jackson,  Cobie Smulders as a meaner and leaner Agent Hill, and mentions of our favorite superheroes. Joss Whedon has created another brilliant addition to not only the Whedonverse, but a great addition to Marvel’s as well. I’m ready to be recruited!

Sleepy Hollow is ghoulishly good fun

2013-07-19-sleepyhollow_sdcc-533x808

In this modern-day twist on the Washington Irving classic, Ichabod Crane played by Tom Mison, and his nemesis the headless horseman are resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time.

As Ichabod finds himself in 2013’s Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town he no longer recognizes and grapples to understand. Teaming up with Lt. Abigail Mills played by Nicole Beharie, a young cop who has her own supernatural experiences, the two embark on a mission to stop the horseman and other evils that has awoken along with Ichabod and that now is seeping into this once-sleepy town.

Untold stories from the Revolutionary War blend with modern conspiracies and the supernatural in this incredibly fun show. It blends the talents of Len Wiseman, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman and creates a show that blends the creepy with good fun drama.

Watch this show, you’ll be happy you did!
