Written by: Lindi Smith Schitt’s Creek – the Canadian comedy that you may not have heard of but I guarantee will change your life.

James Marsters at Wizard World St. Louis: A geek just like all of us!

Written by Liz Prugh This weekend I had the pleasure of moderating James Marsters, best known for his iconic role as Spike (William the Bloody) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its hit spinoff, Angel.

The best quotes from ‘The Originals’ 4×02 “No Quarter”

The second episode of The Originals season 4 not only brought on all the feels, but it had some killer one-liners.

‘The Originals’ 4×02 discussion: Klaus’s rescue, Marcel’s heartbreak, and a major threat

Written by Liz Prugh The Originals Season 4, Episode 2 “No Quarter,” Aired March 24, 2017 I don’t know if it’s my pregnancy hormones or the amazing writing of this show (probably both), but this episode gave me all the feels. I love how this show never relies on a twist or changes the core of […]

‘Talking TV With Liz and Lindi’ podcast recap: ‘The Walking Dead’ 7×13, “Bury Me Here”

Fans have been raving about The Walking Dead’s latest episode, “Bury Me Here,” us included. Season 7, while it’s had its fair share of great moments, has felt lacking in its usual magic at times. But thanks to stellar performances by Lennie James (Morgan) and Melissa McBride (Carol), and coupled with Scott Gimple’s killer storytelling, this episode really blew […]
