TV Recap: The Bold Type – Never Walk Away From Love …

The Bold Type
“We’ll Always Have Paris” (Episode 210)
August 7, 2018

I’m finally doing this, recapping the season finale of The Bold Type. Even though I’ve watched the finale three times, putting words to computer for the recap was something I may have been avoiding a bit.

A few things about me, I almost didn’t go to my high school graduation because I wasn’t ready for it to be over. Because, to be graduating meant starting something new. Change and new are hard for me. Another example? I have three books that were sooo good that I didn’t read the end; maybe one day, but that day isn’t today.

When I really like something, I have a habit of avoiding the “end.” So, by not writing this recap then I don’t have to think about how I have to wait ten months before I can recap more episodes of TBT.

Alas, I can only put this off so long [Ed. Note: So long before her editor’s head explodes =)]; soon, Fall season premieres will begin. So, I’m pulling off the band aid and I’m recapping “We’ll Always Have Paris.”  I can do this, ten months isn’t so long. So now that you know a little more about me here …

Oh, wait. Catch up with what happened in the previous episode, “Trippin’” here.  Caught up? memory Jogged? Great! Without further adieu, let’s go to Paris….if you haven’t watched the finale yet you should know there are spoilers ahead.

TV Recap: Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan – Man of Peace …

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
“Pilot” (Episode 101)
August 31, 2018

Amazon’s newest streaming series, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, is one of THE most hotly anticipated new titles of 2018. Amazon released the entire 8 episode season on August 31, 2018. Pop Culture Review will be releasing its recaps & reviews of the series over the next few weeks.

Based on the long run series of successful books, which have continued even after Tom Clancy’s death, the show stars John Krasinski (The Office) as the eponymous hero, Wendell Pierce (Suits, The Wire), as James Greer, and Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), as Cathy Mueller.  Since Cathy isn’t yet Cathy Ryan, we know right away this is a Jack Ryan origin story, an arena never really explored in the books.

Fans of the novels will know that Jack Ryan, a mere CIA Analyst with no ambitions to being a super spy, came up during the last decade of the Cold War. For this series, Jack Ryan still begins as a CIA analyst, but he now exists in a contemporary world where terror threats from Islamic Fundamentalism is the McGuffin we’re all chasing.

I shouldn’t have to say it but Spoilers Ahead.  Read on for our recap & review of the Pilot episode of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan … after the jump!
