  1. I'll wait for the trailer to decide which way to go on Mafia Mama. That one sounds like it could go either way for me, and I don't mind a mafia flick here and there.

  3. Ohh good Hotel Portofino is coming to PBS. Just hope its PBS and not just that thing in Amazon where you have to pay twice to watch series when some are free in most cable systems.

    1. I think it is PBS Masterpiece, but I guess it depends on how good or bad the series will turn out to be, they were shooting it this summer in my neighbourhood of Croatia.

    2. I checked PBS masterpiece content, they have some seriously good international period pieces, but I can only access it through Amazon Prime, it ends up being $20 monthly

  6. A funny mafia movie, now that sounds interesting. One of my favorite book series is about a mafia family with special powers. So I don't mind mafia stories.

  7. Another comment has mysteriously disappeared!!!! I don't really watch Mafia movies unless they're factual. I don't believe in fantasizing something so serious!
