My Top Ten Angel Season 4 Episodes via @stacyamiller85 @AllCharisma @David_Boreanaz @AlexisDenisof @jaugustrichards @AmyAcker #VincentKartheiser #AngelBites20 #AngeltheSeries #AngelReunion

The earlier seasons of a television series faces the toughest critics. But for the television series Angel, the fourth season was considered it’s most problematic with some even calling it the show’s worst season. I don’t entirely agree with this. I admit there was a particular story that I still question the writers choice in making, but for me Angel Season Four sadly gets a bum rap. I feel badly about the criticisms the actors have faced over the years (in particular Charisma Carpenter). They were part of a show that has a lasting legacy and a cemented place in television history.

In my opinion, Angel Season Four contained some great episodes. I give my choices for the Top Ten Angel Season 4 episodes. Read below to see whether any of your favorites made the list.

Interview with Jessii Vee from @kleffnotes

Rounding out our interviews with the cast of Running With Violet, I had the chance to talk with Jessii Vee. The actor and YouTuber plays Frankee, the slightly witchy babysitter from Season One who has started to find new skills this season. She was one of my favorite characters in the first season and I was excited to see she was back for more one liners and epic levels of snark. I got to chat with her about this new season and what she’s up to outside of the series. Continue reading “Interview with Jessii Vee from @kleffnotes”

Deep Water Blues Book Review from @kleffnotes

From the author of Searching for Bobby Fischer, Fred Waitzkin, Deep Water Blues is inspired by a true story and tells the story of a Bahamian island that became the battleground for a pirate war. Bobby Little built his own paradise on the island of Rum Cay. While the island life was something people flocked to, Bobby and his larger than life personality were the rule lures. When a tragedy strikes the island swiftly changes and tourists no longer wish to visit these once exotic shores. Bobby finds himself fighting against a new sort of entrepreneur and the water begins to run red with blood, but there might be someone who can help find a way to return the island to its former glory.

Andrea Bang is a new addition to Running With Violet, the YouTube series we are featuring this week in connection to the drop of the second season.
