Regular subscribers to this newsletter know that it takes me back to memories of riding bikes with friends, waiting for the ice cream truck, and catching fireflies in mason jars.
That’s why I want to start this week on a time travel series that speaks to my soul. Enjoy your future self as much as I enjoyed it.
What would you do if you met your 12-year-old self?
That’s the premise of this new sci-fi series Four young friends time travel from 1988 to 2019
. I loved the premise, but two words stuck with me: Ali Wong.
She’s a costar and I won’t say anything more.
“Paper Girls” is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’
This is another new series about a group of young women. It’s very different but still flows with the nostalgia theme.
If you’re a fan of the original “Pretty Little Liars,” you know to expect drama. This iteration features a group of girls living 20 years after tragic events nearly tear their blue-collar town apart.
Teenagers are seen being tormented by an unknown assailant who is ready to make them pay for what their parents did, hence the “original sin” in the show title.
The first three episodes are streaming on HBO Max, which, like CNN, is part of Warner Bros. Discovery.

Between new music and The recently released teaser trailer
I’m already in my feelings.
One thing to say
Let’s try this again.
Adele announced on Monday Rescheduled dates for her Las Vegas residency
which was postponed in January, the day before it started.
Needless to say, those who had tickets were upset. I didn’t have tickets. I still don’t have tickets.
But I have hope that with the new dates – and eight additional dates – I’ll have another chance to try to see one of my favorite singers in Sin City.
Something to sip on
Sorvino also played gangster Frank Costello on “The Godfather of Harlem,” and while he’s had many incredible roles, none have portrayed a mob man quite like him.
Perhaps surprisingly, Sorvino told Jon Stewart
In 2015 he almost gave up the role of mob boss Paul “Pauly” Cicero in “Goodfellas” because he was “really at a loss” and trying to find the toughness to portray him.
“I’m actually a very soft-spoken guy,” Sorvino said.
“When you give me this award, you honor my father, Paul Sorvino, who taught me everything I know about acting,” she said at the time. “I love you so much daddy.”
We loved him too.
