Speaking of entertainment – after binge-watching Fear The Walking Dead, I got soooo hooked on the Witches of East End tv show. It’s telenovela level script (guessing the next turn of events makes for a sweet shot drinking game), the SFX are so-so. But it has witches! And damn cool actresses – Julia Ormond, Mädchen Anouk. The real horror is that the show’s been cancelled. Meh 😦 I liked it, it reminded me of Charmed. And of my all-time-fav Bell, Book & Candle movie. So if any of you have suggestions of similar shows for me to binge-watch this Halloween, speak in the comments!
