“Why can’t you take up golf?” I pleaded when my husband Maury announced he was going to learn to fly. First the red sports car, now this? My second reaction was to check our life insurance policies and our will. Was this part of a man’s ‘go-fast’ stage of…

This was our last day in Canada. We ate at the Delta Hotels Halifax, a Marriott. We had enough time to hike through the nearby Citadel Fort before driving to the airport. I can’t believe how much of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island we have seen in ten…

Military TV shows. Many, many, many. Sign of the times. Here's an item from today's Hollywood Reporter. The photo is from History Channel's SIX (as in Seal Team Six).

A renewed political focus on the armed services has spilled into scripted TV. From Fox's Behind Enemy Lines to The CW's Valor, all five broadcast networks have a military pilot in the works, Lesley Goldberg reports:

While the five broadcast networks each ready their own military pilots, History has the Will Smith-produced Harlem Hellfighters, National Geographic just cast The Long Road Home and Hulu has One Million Steps. (And that's on top of USA Network's previously renewed Shooter.)

That's more than double the number of military shows usually being made at this point in the season. While it's on-brand for History to explore the genre, it's telling that the younger-skewing CW also is signing up for duty.

Few disagree that these programs reflect current events, but more intriguing is how they may influence the real world. Says television critic Myles McNutt, "It seems likely, in the years to come, that we will begin to categorize shows as either complicit or resistant to Trump's presidency."

Handsome and I launched into the eighth day of our see-all-of-Nova-Scotia vacation from the Queen Anne Inn B&B. As Canada celebrates its 150th year, we celebrated as well with hikes. The good folks at the Queen Anne Inn fed us the best breakfast of our…
