Tube Watch (May 8, 2014)

Hope everyone is having an awesome week.  We are back to share what we have been watching over the past week. 🙂

Starting with Melissa, she was happy to discover a Tinkerbell-related feature of the non-animated variety in the two part 2011 TV movie, Neverland, starring the recently past Bob Hoskins (RIP) and Kiera Knightley, but she was quite underwhelmed and it became “Nevermind” on watching part two.  She also continued her journey through Lost by beginning season five.  And she also watched the first few episodes of a newer TV show, ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which quickly won her over!

Chris finally caught up with the rest of the Great Stories team by watching Catching Fire, though he is still not that sold on the merits of the series.  Also on the viewing schedule was the superb Dean Koontz adaptation of Odd Thomas with Anton Yelchin and Addison Timlin (and directed by Stephen Sommers).  Of the few Koontz adaptations out there, this one is easily the best.  That was about it, as NHL hockey playoffs took precedence!

Next up was Marcel, who continued his Agents of SHIELD viewing with Chris, as well as joining Melissa in watching Once Upon a Time.  He has also been watching one of his favorites, The Goldbergs, which appears directly after Agents of SHIELD.

Jim had a relatively light week with only two movies.  His viewing of the Oscar-nominated Philomena was well worth his time.  And it would not be a complete week without one oldie but goodie, as he took in the Cary Grant comedy,  The Awful Truth.

Here’s to heading into our fast-approaching weekend!
