Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

TV's most-magical shows -and HBB faves- are back to delight us! :) - Fifth and final season of SyFy's "Merlin" premieres tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern, while "Once Upon A Time" returns to ABC-TV on Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern


"I feel the weight of my destiny crushing me." 
Yes, I know what you mean. I've been feeling the same way, too. 
It's a terrible thing to know that you have a great destiny, yet find yourself, more often than not,  toiling amongst the mundane and banal instead of the world of true significance and import you know that you were meant for.

Hmm-m... I hereby propose a contest, Katie McGrath (Morgana) vs. Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills/Evil Queen) for the title of Sexiest & Most-moxie-filled fairy tale character on TV.
The winner faces Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan).
Hello must-see TV! 



And seriously, where has Miranda Raison been all my life? 
I mean besides in England, of course? 

I'd watched her in MI5 (Spooks) as Jo Portman, of course, but hadn't seen the Merlin episode she was in until today, "The Sword in the Stone." http://merlin.wikia.com/wiki/Miranda_Raison
Wow, she really looks good out of the espionage bureaucratic office and in leather -and with a sword!

You know, he said somewhat mischievously, not everyone can carry that off with such panache!
