All American: 6 shows fans of the CW series need to check out

Did you already finish binge-watching season one of All American? Here are six other great shows you can watch while you wait for season two.

All American is, unarguably, one of the best new shows to air on The CW in the past couple of years. It stands out for another reason on the network. It isn’t a reboot, a spin-off, or a sequel of any kind. All American is an original new series from mastermind Greg Berlanti.

Spencer James is your average high school teenager, except he has a gift. Spencer is an excellent football player at South Crenshaw High. A coach from Beverly Hills, Billy Baker, takes a liking to Spencer and recruits him for his team. Spencer’s best friends and his mother encouraged him to take the opportunity. He’ll have far more chances to succeed in a place like Beverly than he will in Crenshaw.

Legacies: Will Matt Donovan be back for Season 2?

Legacies is set to return soon and apparently, there is a new sheriff in town according to recent casting news. So what happened to Matt Donovan?

When Legacies was first being teased on The CW, Matt Donovan returning as the Mystic Falls sheriff was a pretty big deal. Fans of The Vampire Diaries were hoping to see as many connections to the parent series as possible. Many looked forward to seeing Matt pop up throughout the season.

Sadly for Matt fans, Zach Roerig only appeared in two episodes of the show. He had little to do and didn’t appear to have a story arc. That said, the door appeared open for him to return in the future when Roerig’s schedule allowed.

At least, until now. TVLine reports a new sheriff has been cast. Bianca Kajlich (Bosch) has been cast as Sheriff Mac. The article reports she has a troubled past but “she’s willing to open herself up to a new romance when the opportunity arises.”

Book Thoughts: The Haunting of Hill House

Book Thoughts: The Haunting of Hill HouseThe Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, Laura Miller
Published on November 28, 2006
Genres: Horror, Gothic
Links: Buy on Amazon | Goodreads
Pages: 208
Format: Paperback

Source: Barnes and Noble

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting."

Theodora, the lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

For starters, I decided I’m going to do book reviews a little differently. If it’s a book I’m just reading of my own accord, it’ll be more informal. If it’s a book I’m reading for a publisher I’ll keep to my traditional way of doing things!

Anyways, I just finished The Haunting of Hill House, and first of all, SHIRLEY JACKSON WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

How could I have gone so long without reading a Jackson novel? I feel ashamed. I’m obsessed. I’m in love. I have never felt such dread while reading a book before.

I also had to read The Lottery once I started to learn more about her, and read the terrific book introduction (Penguins Classic version FTW). Well, obviously, one of my new favorite short stories ever.

Jackson knows how to write a persistent ache of tension and suspense perhaps better than any modern horror writer. I’ve read quite a bit of horror and many thrillers, but despite the fact, Hill House has no “ghosts,” it made me more uneasy than anything I’ve read previously.

The first thing I did after finishing the book was to spend time online reading analytical essays. I love that this novel is so open-ended. There is so much to unpack. I felt I could relate to Eleanor’s sense of isolation; perhaps that is one reason I was so unnerved. I couldn’t help but wonder what Hill House would do to me, had I stayed.

Reading the book also made me appreciate the Netflix series much more. Despite their differences, Flanagan indeed did a magnificent job of conveying the sense of palpable fear the house drums up.

Sure the series was more flashy and had actual entities, but it felt sincere to the story. Especially the addition of the red room, which makes perfect sense why it fits so well once you’ve read the book.

Anyway, I feel like I could go on forever and should say something amazing and in-depth but I’m coming up blank at the moment. I think I will revisit the dark corners of Hill House soon and form more coherent thoughts about it.
