TV…What is it good for?!?


It’s well known that once you become a parent that you also begin to watch more cartoons than you did prior to children. Or at least you now watch cartoons that are more child friendly. Maybe, who knows?

My point is, cartoons.

While watching Loud House, Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, etc. I’ve noticed a theme. They all teach lessons.

Be a good person.

Be truthful.

Share with others.

Learn to see things from a different perspective.

Forgive people.

Accept people.

The lists goes on and on. Great lessons taught in a simple way. Which got me thinking…at what point does that change? Continue reading “TV…What is it good for?!?”

Rabble, Rabble, Rabble


I’m sitting here staring at the screen. What do I want to write about? I know I want to put words on paper so to speak but the topic or topics elude me.

I have so many thoughts that run through my head but they just seem more like ramblings in my mind. They’re always there, they never stop and I find comfort in them oddly enough. There are many times when I want to share my thoughts with people but then I wonder, is it worth the debates or conversations that will usually start or end with someone trying to change my mind? It seems that you can never share your thoughts with people anymore without someone telling you you’re wrong. How are thoughts and opinions wrong? I might not agree with you and you might not agree with me but that doesn’t make either of us wrong. I can only think of a handful of people that I can have real discussions with but we all get so busy, who has the time? Continue reading “Rabble, Rabble, Rabble”

#DoctorWho Trailer! The Countdown has begun!!


Mark your calendars folks!! September 19, 2015 is the day The Doctor returns to our screens!! This trailer has my mind racing with possibilities. I know for many that Peter Capaldi hasn’t lived up to Doctor Who standard but I love him. I think he’s a brilliant Doctor. I feel like he plays the Doctor as almost a new Time Lord and really isn’t that what he is?!? After Matt Smith received 12 new regenerations from his people through the crack it makes sense to me that this Doctor is fresh, he looks at the world anew again but also remembers all the lives he’s lived til this point.

I do hope this is the last season for Jenna Coleman. She’s had her time with two doctors now and needs to move on. She’s a delightful woman and I can see her in movies, TV and more for many years but it’s time to pass the torch. I’d like to see the new companion be older (I don’t have a gender preference) and possibly even alien.

I did enjoy Michelle Gomez as The Master, she was creepy and weird but strangely intriguing. Her face is so expressive and it really seemed like she was enjoying herself in the role. I don’t know if she could travel with The Doctor given their history but I so look forward to them sharing the screen again!

Well shoot it wouldn’t let me post the trailer itself but here’s a link to watch it on Facebook 🙂 Doctor Who Trailer

LizaJane’s Top 5 Favorite TV Shows!


Doctor Who

  1. Doctor Who: This should not come as a surprise if you read my blog a few days ago. I have watched each episodes dozens of times and it never gets old for me. I see something new every time I watch each episode. Each new doctor and companion brings something new to each season/series even if you aren’t a fan of the companion during that season. (Again SORRY Martha!) I’m spinning in circles waiting for season/series 9 in August. I sure hope I make it. I don’t always feel like I can express how I LOVE this series without sounding completely off my rocker but I swear you only need to watch one episode to know what I mean!

sherlock

  1. Sherlock: I discovered this gem on Netflix after I ran out of Doctor Who the first time. I was a fully addicted BBC addict so why not continue to enjoy the high with a sexy detective and his handsome and kind partner. This show is an hour and a half long because in the UK they don’t have the obscene amount of commercials and marketing that we do during a program. Go figure! Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have amazing chemistry and have completely modernized the characters for me.  I’m not a fan of the American TV series but I did love the US movies and if I’m not mistaken Benedict Cumberbatch did study Robert Downey Jr.’s interpretation because of how on point RDJ is as Sherlock.

Arrow

  1. Arrow: Talk about action packed and awesome super heroes! Stephen Amell is everything you could want in the character of Arrow. What’s better is that outside the show he completely embraces the character and does amazing things for charity. The entire cast blends together so perfectly. Someone should shake the casting director’s hand for this win. Each week you watch Ollie and his team fight not just the evil that “Have failed this city!” but also the inner demons that chase them all on an individual level. The first season was kinda hard to watch each week but you could just see that the actors wanted it to work and 4 seasons later they have not failed us.

The-Flash

  1. The Flash: I might have some issues with super hero worship. Flash has always been a favorite of mine since watching the cartoon series Justice League Unlimited. I never read the comic books and for that I’m sorry but hey at least I still feel the love. Grant Gustin is the perfect Flash. He’s geeky, charming, smart and just has a love for life and people that shines out of him. This is only the first season of the series which is a spin-off of Arrow but I expect as much success for Flash as I do Arrow. When you’re watching the show you’re on the edge of your seat and it’s not just Flash that makes you hover. Between Cisco and his naming of our villains along with his incredible genius skills creating any weapon or super hero suit you can imagine and Dr. Wells with his secrets and jaw dropping revelations you don’t know whether to squeal or just faint. The action is non-stop.

archer

  1. Archer: Cartoons for the adults ONLY! It’s Man Men but only funny and a cartoon. The high-jinks of the spy agency formerly known as ISIS is so extreme and WTH that you can’t do anything else but laugh and enjoy the show. Archer is a complete mess thanks to his mother and her unorthodox parenting styles, you could almost feel sorry for him if he wasn’t just an ass. Lana is a major bad ass with giant man hands and a HUGE rack. Pam is an in your face, farm grown force to be reckon with that you don’t want on your bad side. Cheryl is a complete nut, between her glue eating and her love of the chokegasm she is always the life of the party. Cyril is just a glutton for pain and punishment, how much humiliation can one man endure? Krieger can’t even be described, just think mad scientist meets Hitler clone. It’s only a 30 min show, 20 if you take commercials into account but it’s funny from beginning to end.
