The Young Pope

I have to admit I don’t get excited for many shows on television. When I saw this coming to HBO, I really found my curiosity raised.

It turns out Jude Law is the first American Pope elected..I won’t blow any story lines or plots. There is something about the ad for the show that shows the Pope smoking a cigarette. Erstwhile Catholic girl of the 60’s, it really caught my eye. There is also something about Diane Keaton as a nun. Seriously? I never had any nun that had the humor of Diane Keaton: not that my grades would have been helped by Diane Keaton.

I am currently watching the Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys football game, and HBO is advertising that “The Young Pope” starts at 9 PM.

I’ll be watching!

Melancholia

I have given it a shot.

The Encore movie channel is running the Thorn Birds miniseries over the following three nights, in addition to tonight.

I have read the book that it was adapted from, my good pal Duch named her oldest daughter after Meghann, the heroine. I have only seen the miniseries a ton….tonight, I couldn’t do it.

Life is real- happy, sad, trying times…whatever. I just couldn’t handle the underlying sadness tonite.

What have I opted for?…..

ESPN and the Houston-New England football game. With any luck, I’ll be sleeping soon… Lol
