The Orville (2017) Premiere Review

Seth MacFarlane and I share a few similarities. We were both born on October 26th. We both are fairly liberal. We both love Star Trek. His new creation is The Orville, which premiered this past Sunday (September 10th) on FOX.

I was skeptical of this show for a few reasons. It isn't an animated series, which seems to be Seth MacFarlane's specialty. I didn't want it to disgrace scientific fiction or Star Trek. I love Star Trek more than most people I know. I'm not a super fan, but I'm a definite fan. It was a large part of my childhood. The Orville is a comedy. Will it contain the usual slapstick comedy or would I be cracking up the entire episode? 
Notes: - I have a feeling that the Doctor will be a sassy woman who creates some soft humor.  - This robot reminds me of Data. Voice and all. The mirroring between Star Trek/TNG and The Orville is uncanny.  - I wonder if Gene Roddenberry would have been proud of this spoof of his work. Or liked it at least.  - The Captain…

Life Snippets: Southwesterncaroginia

This life snippet is about my childhood. The title is a bit off-putting. This is a story about fate. Yes, fate. This mythical sense that things happen for a reason or because it was meant to. From ages 6 until 14, I lived in South Carolina, specifically Myrtle Beach and the surrounding towns. When I was around 11, we moved to a subdivision in Socastee. I adored this house and, even though bad memories happened here, I wish I still lived in it. Back then, hanging outside was still the bee's knees.  I had a few friends neighborhood. This story is about Gloria.

Gloria lived down the street, take a right, and her house was on the left before you got close to the Waterway. She was a year or two older than me, but we got along really well. She was the first girl I met that had short hair. I thought that was cool about her. Just like I thought it was cool how she wore makeup, specifically eyeliner. We hung out often, even though her parents were actually a bit mean. I often would ride my…


I need your help! I need your assistance! As you know, Fall and Winter are coming. I want to make the rest of the year really special for my husband and son. There are some adventurous activities to partake in in my area (that I know about).


Hawk's NestPumpkin Festival in Milton, WVGritt's Farm, near Eleanor, WV That is all I can think of! Last year, we went to a haunted trail near Lewisburg, WV. It was alright, but I want to do some other Halloween-esque activities. Any corn mazes elsewhere? Good haunted houses? 
Please comment below, email me a list (, or tweet them to me @wildasthesea. 
They don't have to necessarily be Halloween or Fall themed. They can be simply places that you recommend to go! Keep in mind, I'll probably have Jude (3) with me at most of what you suggest, so family friendly places are best! Though maybe I'll get some mommy time. 
Anyways, thanks in advanced!

Binge Recommendations - August 2017

Sometimes my binge recommendations will overlap. I try really hard to be diverse, but sometimes you just have to recommend something twice. Here's four television shows that I recommend to binge during the month of August (or for a few days in August).

TV Show: Outlander
Why? Because season 3 premieres September 10th on STARZ. And it's really great and beautifully filmed.
What is it about? After serving as a British Army nurse in World War II, Claire Randall is enjoying a second honeymoon in Scotland with husband Frank, an MI6 officer looking forward to a new career as an Oxford historian. Suddenly, Claire is transported to 1743 and into a mysterious world where her freedom and life are threatened. To survive, she marries Jamie Fraser, a strapping Scots warrior with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor. A passionate relationship ensues, and Claire is caught between two vastly different men in two inharmonious lives. "Outlander" is adapted from the best-sell…

There has been a lot of hullabaloo over this season due to the Corinne and Demario drama. This drama will unfold on screen afterall, though it may be edited slightly. There are also rumors that there will not be any engagements this season. Last season ended with three engaged, with only one actually ending in marriage (and not splitting).
