Homeland Final Season on Showtime

Taron Egerton Taron Egerton plays Elton and did the singing himself.  He did a great job portraying Elton.  I recognized him from the Kingsman movies.  He was incredible.

Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones-Last Season-April 14th on HBO   When the series Games of Thrones premiered on HBO in April 2011 I was not yet a fan.  My nephew and brother kept finding opportunities to use some of the quotes from the show like "My Grace" and "Winter is Coming."  After the first season made it to DVD my son watched it.  He told me he thought I would enjoy it.   I think I gave th[...]
