The Secrets We Keep

“Turn right on Sunset Drive. Your destination is 300 feet on right.”

Ben turned right onto Sunset Drive and pulled over on the left side of the narrow road. Looking over at the house in the middle of the street, Ben felt his pulse quicken. Folding his arms on the steering wheel, he leaned over and placed his chin on top of his arms. With laser focus, he stared at the house. The huge brown doors, the cars in the garage, the yard, the balcony. The father he hadn’t seen in years was somewhere in the house.

Adventures of Allen the Ratchet: Alice’s Piano Bar

Allen walked through the refreshing summer breeze as he searched the streets of New York City for his next adventure. After a rough day Allen loved to roam the city’s streets until he stumbled upon a wonderful adventure in the city. While he may have lived in the Big Apple all of his life, he could always find some previously unknown gem to explore.

Across the street was a small bar with the name “Alice’s Piano Bar” written on a wooden plank and it caught the young man’s attention. Allen could tell it was old because he barely made out the name on its sign. A street light exposed the bar’s name – and streamers that hung from the sign. Hanging off the wooden plank were dozens of multi-colored streamers.

A closer look revealed a sign next to the door that read “Carnival Night.” And Allen loved himself a carnival.

9 Actors Who Could Play “The Flash” Season 4 Villain Thinker

For three seasons I have enjoyed watching Barry Allen save Central City on “The Flash.” There’s just been one major issue I have had with the series – all the speedsters. Each season the main villain has been a speedster, which has gotten old, but according to TVLine, that is about to change with the introduction of The Thinker. My sheer excitement for a non-speedster villain has led to this list of casting choices.

15 Shondaland Alums for The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Firefighter Spinoff

Recently ABC ordered a “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff centered around firefighters in Seattle. While the events of the medical drama’s season finale could have introduced some of the new characters, that ended up not happening. Since Shonda Rhimes has not filled the roles of the new series, I thought we could take a trip down Shondaland memory lane and pick some folks that would make excellent cast members for the new series.

In Season 3, “12 Monkeys” Replaces Mysteries with Secrets for its Best Season Yet

For two seasons “12 Monkeys” was a series driven by mystery. It began with two strangers coming together from across time to stop a virus. One simple mission grew into a massive cause where the duo tried to uncover the truth about an ominous group called “The Army of the Twelve Monkeys” who literally cause the extermination of the human race. Coming into its third season the Syfy drama replaced focal points, the mysteries took a backseat to secrets.

“Power Rangers”: 11 Actresses Who Could Play Green Ranger Tommy Oliver

Truth is I have been experiencing a lack of motivation recently and then the “Power Rangers” cast had to all great and suggest The Green Ranger in their franchise should be female. As a kid, I loved “Power Rangers” and I have to admit I watched well passed “Mighty Morphin’” to the end of the Zordon era, so this new franchise has had my attention from the beginning. In any case I loved the diverse cast, enjoyed the movie – sans the exaggeration of its LGBTQ “moment” – and think a female Green Power Ranger is an excellent idea. Here are 11 actresses who would be perfect for the role.

Recently news was released that ABC is planning a “Blackish” spinoff. The comedy would center on Yara Shahidi’s character Zoey and follow her to college. While no details have been released by the network about potential series, I decided to put together a list of characters to round out the comedy’s cast. The show is a long way off, and could not even happen, but I try to have fun whenever I can.
