This is the penultimate episode of iZombie, as the series finale arrives next week. So as always regarding a modern TV drama series with a serialized narrative, there’s an increased risk that characters may not survive from week to week.

In 1963, this costume drama pushed the boundaries of sexual innuendo in film, especially at mealtime. During the picnic scene, the title character had quite a picnic indeed. But the biggest reason to watch this film is to see Albert Finney, as Tom Jones, in the prime of his cinematic sex-symbol status.

So this is it: After months of speculation and anticipation and negotiation, a one-week delay and some last-minute adjustments, two congressional committees – the first before the House Judiciary Committee, the second, after lunch, before the House Intelligence Committee. Mueller has said, on the record, he doesn’t plan to testify much beyond the content of his famous report – but subsequent summations of that same report by the attorney general makes his rectitude a question m

We’re getting to the end of Jane the Virgin – the final two episodes of the series are presented next Wednesday, as a finale double-header.
