If you're a fan of history and “Masterpiece Theater,” you should check out God on Trial, the new DVD added to our collection. Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and directed by Andy De Emmony, it takes place during a 24 hour period in Auschwitz after the ritual of selection has taken place and new inmates have arrived.
Are you already missing ER? The long running medical drama ended its 15 year run last Thursday but it seems like only yesterday that George Clooney, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle and Julianna Margulies first appeared on our TV screens. Once the most popular show on the tube, the series went on to win 22 Emmy Awards. Although the show's total viewers have declined in recent years, the final episode scored the biggest ratings for a series finale since Murder She Wrote in 1996.
The Tigers Home Opener is this coming Friday, April 10th. Even if you don't have tickets to the big game, you can get into the baseball spirit with a hotdog, popcorn, and a family-friendly baseball movie from CPL. Some of my favorites are The Sandlot, Angels in the Outfield, and Rookie of the Year. Batter Up!
