And, if you look at it just right, writing is the space between the words.

Oh, and, Dawn, any time you’re ready to make that “irregular” thing more, erm, regular, we’re ready too. read article

Web Series: NICOLIFE

by Team TVWriter™ Press Service

Nicolife tells the story of Nicolai and Phil, two attention-starved nobodies who desire fame and fortune above anything else. The show is a satirical look at the egocentrism of our YouTube generation, and guess what? Yeppers, that’s correct. Nicolife is really fucking good.

Need more convincing than the Teaser? Here are episodes from the first episode:

Diana Vacc Sees Outlander Episode 8 “The Fox’s Lair”

fox's lair

by Diana Vaccareilli

This episode of Outlander entitled “The Fox’s Lair” finds Claire and Jamie returning to Scotland after the tragedies they went through in France and meeting Jamie’s Grandfather Lord Lovatt. If you haven’t viewed this episode yet be warned: this review may contain spoilers.

THE GOOD:

  • The writing of the episode was good but not “oh boy, gosh wow, fantastic” as previous episodes have been. Anne Kenney writes beautiful scenes between our two leads, showing them healing after losing their child, which was quite moving to watch but lacked the dynamism present in previous episodes. One scene in particular, showing Jamie (Sam Heughan) holding his newborn niece was touching and heartbreaking at the same time.
  • Clive Russell was fantastic as Jamie’s devious Grandfather. I was amazed at how his performance presented the character exactly as I’d pictured him while reading the book.
