The Problem With Tumblr – Spoilers


I am a firm believer in blogging in community. Tumblr is a community that is world wide. So this brings its own problems, spoilers! Having people who are from the UK where lots of awesome TV originates from is tough because they are sharing about those shows that have yet to make it across the pond. “Downton Abbey”, “Doctor Who”, “Call The Midwife”, “Sherlock” are just a few where we find out about what’s going on before we even see it for ourselves.

Yes there are scripts and other browser solutions to keep it from our dashboard but still. Then there is You Tube and Pirate sites where you can see those shows before they air on TV. I knew that “Downton’s” Matthew Crawley died before I saw Matthew Crawley die here. Its just a part of the global TV scene we have. As Professor River Song of “Doctor Who” says, “spoilers sweetie”.


The Other Boleyn Girl – Full of sci-fi fandom goodness and more!

A sumptuous and sensual tale of intrigue, romance and betrayal set against the backdrop of a defining moment in European history: two beautiful sisters, Anne and Mary Boleyn, driven by their family’s blind ambition, compete for the love of the handsome and passionate King Henry VIII (from IMDB)

This movie features Natalie Portman (Star Wars), Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) Eric Bana (Star Trek), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock/Star Trek), David Morrissey (Doctor Who). We can say all these actors have enchanted us on the big and small screens as they zoomed across the universe or have solved a mystery or protected mother Earth. Its a movie worth seeing.
