Iphigenia

Iphigenia

Apparently this is based on a real greek myth.  I mean an actual ancient greek story, not a greek myth that really happened in the real world, or maybe it did?  I don’t know where the line between legend and reality lies when it comes to the works of Eurpides and Homer.  Someone comment and […]

Veep has always existed in the background of my life.  I’ve heard about it, know the basic premise, and have been meaning to check it out for a long time now, so when the opportunity to review the fourth season came along, I jumped at the chance since I tend to be a fan of […]
