North and South: Book One

Just wanted to do a short summary of North and South: Book One. I have the eight DVD set of the three miniseries which ran in the 80s and 90s. The show is based on John Jakes novels about the US before, during and after the Civil War. The first book takes place before the Civil War and in the early days of the conflict.

Christmas in Soapland 2012


Since there are only four daytime soap operas on the air, I can condense my Christmas in Soapland to one post this year. Here are my quick summaries of what happened to the denizens of Genoa City, Los Angeles, Port Charles and Salem. Due to what happened in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012 the episodes were pushed back a day, so most soap towns celebrated Christmas Day on Boxing Day instead.

Gossip Girl Finale


On Monday, December 17, 2012, The CW aired Gossip Girl's last episode. The show which filmed primarily in New York City, was primarily about a group students at a Constance Billard School and we followed their lives from that school to adulthood from 2007 - 2012. This spoils the end of the series.
