Regular subscribers to this newsletter know that it brings back memories of riding bikes with friends, waiting for the ice cream truck, and catching fireflies in a mason jar.
That’s why I have to start this week with a time travel series that speaks to my soul. May your future self enjoy it as much as I do.
What would you do if you met your 12 year old self?
She’s a costar and I won’t say more.
“Paper Girls” is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
“Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin”
Here is another new series about a group of young women. This one is very different but still flows with the theme of nostalgia.
If you were a fan of the original “Pretty Little Liars,” you know you’re expecting drama. This iteration features a group of girls who live 20 years after a series of tragic events nearly tear their working town apart.
The teens find themselves tormented by an unknown abuser determined to make them pay for what their parents did, hence the “original sin” in the show’s title.
The first three episodes air on HBO Max, which, like CNN, is part of Warner Bros. Discovery.
Remember Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson in “How I Met Your Mother?”
I’ll never forget it, but I’m thrilled to embrace a new character.
In this new series, the actor plays a successful real estate agent who finds himself navigating New York City as a newly single gay man after losing the man he thought was his soul mate.
“Decoupled” is streaming on Netflix.
Two things to listen to
I mean, what more do I need to say besides Queen Bey?!?!?
Because believe me, it will be Bey all day.
We are ready, Queen.
The songs are “No Woman, No Cry” by Bob Marley covered by Tems, “A Body, a Coffin” by Amaarae and “Soy” by Santa Fe Klan, and they have me looking forward to the movie coming later this autumn.
Something to talk about
Let’s try again.
Needless to say, people who had tickets were upset. I had no tickets. I still don’t have tickets.
But what I do have is hope that with the new dates — and eight more — I have another chance to try and see one of my favorite singers in Sin City after all.
something to sip
Sorvino also portrayed mobster Frank Costello in “The Godfather of Harlem,” and while he’s had a slew of amazing roles, no one has portrayed a mob guy quite like him.
“I’m a really sweet guy,” Sorvino said.
“When you give me this award, you honor my father, Paul Sorvino, who taught me everything I know about acting,” she said at the time. “I love you very much, dad.”
We loved it too.
