5 Reasons You Should Watch Bloodline
Hollywood Reporter

"Bloodline" is one of my favorite TV shows of all-time. It's a Netflix Original that made its debut in early 2015. And the second season came out earlier this year (imagine the binge opportunities!!).

The plot follows the well-respected Rayburn family who runs a small beachfront inn on one of the Florida Keys and specifically focuses on the four adult siblings who grew up at the inn.

And let me tell ya, this is some SERIOUSLY good television! Here's why:

1. Kyle Chandler is a babe and never ceases to be incredible. His performance in this series is NEXT LEVEL and it's something you've never seen from him before. Did I mention he is a total babe?!

2. For you musical theater fans, one of the principal actors in the show originated the character Fiyero in the longstanding and overwhelmingly successful "Wicked" on Broadway! That's right, Norbert Leo Butz plays one of the aforementioned Rayburn siblings caught up in all the drama. You won't see any shots of him in tight white Fiyero pants and he doesn't get to demonstrate his amazing singing voice (sadly) but he is still the same Norbert we know and love!

3. "Bloodline" has some of the best directing in television right now. It's a character-driven drama (the best kind) with complexity and knotted relationships. The audience is taken from one of the main characters' storylines to another in a way that expertly twists the story together, revealing glimpses of itself at just the right times. You never see it coming, and then all of a sudden - BOOM! The credits roll and you watch seven more episodes in one sitting.

4. This story is different because it shows the characters transitioning from good guys to bad guys without you realizing it. You root for these morally-compromised heroes and don't think about their questionable decisions. You find yourself completely attached to the Rayburn team and wanting them to succeed.

5. It's a family drama and a cop drama all rolled into one! Who doesn't want that? Not only do we get to view all the emotional complexities of the characters in the story, but we also get to witness the intellectual complexities in solving crimes surrounding the Rayburns. (Not to mention, cop shows are just super cool.)

Now go watch it! You'll probably finish both seasons by the end of the week. Happy Netflix-ing!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
