Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/4/20 — 5/10/20


Well, here we are at the end of another week.  Some parts of the country are still locked down and some are not.  It’s a little bit hard to keep track of what’s open and what isn’t.  Right now, everyone just seems to be making it up as they go along.

With a lack of new movies to watch and review, I spent most of this week binging The Sopranos.  I’m currently on Season 5 and, as of right now, I’m totally caught up in the misadventures of the New Jersey mob.  Once I’m done with The Sopranos, I’ll probably check in with the gangsters of Boardwalk Empire and the cowboys of Deadwood.  I’m trying to binge as many of these shows as I can before they leave Prime for HBO MAX.

In other news, I finally saw the episode of The Love Boat that features Andy Warhol as a passenger on the cruise!  Seriously, I first read about this episode like 13 years ago and, ever since, I’ve been checking the TV listings to see if it would ever show up on any of the retro stations!  Today, it was broadcast on MeTV!  I saw it and yes, I DVRed it.

Anyway, stay safe out there.  Can you believe that, in just another month and a half, we will be halfway through 2020.  With the lockdown and all the rest, it almost feels like this year really hasn’t even begun yet.

  1. I’m a big fan of ‘The Love Boat.’ I wish it was on streaming somewhere. I think I like it because I was first a fan of ‘Match Game.’ The cast cross overs are frequent. I just like that 75-85 pop culture. You get some wild crossovers. The one that comes to mind is the episode where Aunt Esther and George Jefferson are a married couple trapped in an elevator together.
