  1. This is in my queue but I haven't watched it yet. I'll try to come back after I have seen it.

  2. Goodness, Craig. I would like to hear your opinion on this. Oh my, I have been absent from my page for too long!

  3. While it had some issues that kept it from being a gem, there were some lovely moments of truth that made this worth watching. Bonus: my blog title at about the 46 minute mark.

  4. I'll add this to my Netflix queue! Thanks!
