Cary Grant and Joan O'Brien hit the deck in Operation Petticoat.

The 1959 comedy Operation Petticoat starring Cary Grant (To Catch a Thief) and Tony Curtis (Sweet Smell of Success) makes it’s  Blu-ray debut courtesy of Olive Films.

Operation Petticoat begins as Commander Matt Sherman (Grant) has his toughest assignment yet – to put a broken sardine can of a submarine back in action. Enter supply officer Nick Holden (Curtis), a master scavenger who has some very shady plans to get the Sea Tiger purring again. Said plans become quite apparent after the crew rescues five stranded beautiful nurses and the grey, battle-scarred sub is suddenly painted a blushingly bold pink, thus transforming into a party-ready hot tub sub for all who come aboard.

In the days since the review was written, we received an onslaught of comments agreeing with this preliminary evaluation of Bloodlines.

It’s since been announced the CW will not be going ahead with the spin-off, quite possibly causing the fandom to breathe a collective sigh of relief. But, despite the seemingly ubiquitous dislike for this backdoor pilot, »

Anastasia is pleasantly surprised by this week's Supernatural. Here's her review...


This review contains spoilers.

9.21 King Of The Damned

I admit: I didn’t actually think this episode would be any good.

King of the Damned was penned by Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming, whose episodes (Taxi DriverHoly Terror, and I'm No Angel) have historically been far from my favourites.

The episode gets off to a great start as an angel plays the role of the uncool kid desperately trying to fit in with the cool angel kids – going so far as to brag about being the trusted right hand man of his idol, »
