The weather this fall in the midwest has been strange and noncommittal: 80 degrees; 50 degrees; 70 degrees; 50 degrees. But real fall is sticking now and the leaves are finally changing.
This weekend I'm heading on home for one of my best friend's bridal shower. Maybe a cider mill will be squeezed in!
And before I go this week, let's check in on fall TV, cause why not?!: my favorite new show of the season is hands-down Sleepy Hollow. And I can't believe I'm saying that, even with my love of fantasy and Halloween! As Mo Ryan of The Huffington Post said, it's bonkers-awesome! It is so much fun and the chemistry between the 2 leads is fantastic. I wish I had chemistry with Ichabod (Tom Mison is attractive). 3 episodes in, and I am also ready to recommend Showtime's new 1950s period drama Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as William Masters and Virginia Johnson, who researched their way into the history books by studying the verboten subject of human sexual nature. The show is a little slow (ala Mad Men), but the performances are fantastic and they're really creating a world worth entering. I caught up with Scandal over the summer (I needed to know what all the fuss was about!), and am so glad I did. If you watch the show, follow Joshua Malina (David Rosen) on Twitter; he is the best.
Have a wonderful weekend.
