What Sue Is Watching

Since I have fallen so far behind on my PVR-watching, I’ve decided to just write about the shows I’ve been most enjoying the past few weeks, even though I may still have catching-up to do on a few of them.  Sometimes there’s just a lot of good stuff on, and not enough time to write…

NOW Talks with Jason Priestley

  Thanks to my good friend and co-worker, Beth Beard, I was able to join her in this event, held at the lovely Jane Mallet Theatre in the St Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto.  We got there well in advance, ensuring ourselves some amazing seats, and settled in to watch NOW’s Associate Entertainment…

The Mind Reels Catches Up With Mary Krohnert

  Sue and I are happy to welcome back our dear friend Mary Krohnert, talking about her film An Amish Murder, Sex After Kids, The Untitled Work of Paul Shepard, her theater workshop, art therapy, general geekiness, and who she would play in the Avengers and Les Miserables. She’s such a wonderful woman and actor,…

Kate Kelton

It’s been a while since Sue and I have done an audio interview, but when the chance came up to chat with one of the stars of Haven, we jumped at the chance. We both love the show! And we thought what with the season finale this week, we’d share our chat with the awesome…

Current TV Shows I Most Enjoy – Part I

I was going to try and come up with a clever title or gimmick for this, like Sue’s Top 12 of 2012, or something.  But I didn’t want to restrict myself with a number, and the fact is, one of the reasons we started the Mind Reels was because we felt that things we loved…

Revisiting Stephen King

I’ve been wanting to read something spooky for a while, and it’s tough to come across books and authors who actually can creep me out with a tale of the supernatural. So I decided to go back to my youth. Like most folks, I read a lot of Stephen King in my teen and high school…

Haven – Season 3, Episode 3 – The Farmer

Have I mentioned yet how much I love the darker path that Haven is taking so far this season?  The stakes have never been higher for our heroes in so many ways, and the fact that the Troubles are getting creepier and more…far-reaching…this season, just goes to show how much more everyone has to lose…

Haven – Season 3, Episode 2: Stay

As an animal lover, it’s possible I am a bit biased, but I loved this week’s episode of Haven!  This is really not my best write-up, however, so please don’t let my lack of skills deter you from checking it out.  The ep and the show are just better than my ability to translate, is…

Haven: Season 3, Episode 1 – 301

  Well, if the Season 2 finale ended with a bang, then the Season 3 premiere can be said to have blown things wide open!  This episode was an incredible rush from start to finish, and if the rest of the season is at all like its opener, then we are in for a dark…

Haven 101:

A Fairly Spoiler-Free Guide To The First Two Seasons Of One Of TV’s Finest Shows Haven is a supernatural series based on a short story by Stephen King called The Colorado Kid.  It all takes place in the small fictional coast town of Haven, Maine, where mysterious things happen sometimes, and no one has been able to…
