It’s the first Friday of the month and time for Glossies Made Me Do It! Has a magazine inspired you in any way lately? Write a post and link up with me below. I’d love to have you join!
Entertainment Weekly: November 2019
Did you know that Entertainment Weekly is no longer a weekly magazine? They kept the name Weekly because they have lots of content every week online, but the physical magazine only comes out once a month. For this month’s Glossies Made Me Do It, I am looking at the November 2019 issue.
Glossies Made Me Do It: Added to My Watch List
There’s a section in the beginning of Entertainment Weekly called First Take where they give you a look at what they call “your next obsessions.” In this issue, I learned about a couple shows that I have now added to my Watch List. I’ll have to do a review later on once I’ve actually watched them if anyone is interested!
No. 1: Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings
This is an anthology series, with each new episode based on a Dolly Parton song. What a fun concept, right? This will be premiering on Netflix on November 22 and there are 8 episodes. Netflix calls it season 1, so who knows? Maybe there will be more episodes in the future!
One of the things that I like about country music – especially in the past – is that so many of the songs really are a story. I love Dolly Parton so I’m super excited to see how they bring 8 of her iconic songs to life. Some of the songs include “Down From Dover”, “These Old Bones”, and of course, “Jolene.” I think I’m most excited about that one!
No. 2: A Christmas Carol
There have been many versions of A Christmas Carol, but I think this one sounds especially good. It’s a miniseries coming to FX in December. Instead of making Scrooge the usual old man, this version of A Christmas Carol stars Guy Pearce as Scrooge. They wanted Scrooge to be physically attractive, if not attractive in any other way (how he acts/thinks/etc). I like that idea – it definitely puts a new spin on Scrooge. I’ll be curious to see where this miniseries goes with the classic tale.
Tell me: Will you be watching either of these miniseries? Had you heard of them before?
