Last summer, I wrote a post on how I met Military Husband. I mentioned we met through Twitter, but the tweets that began our relationship centered around CBS's summer reality show Big Brother.
As reality show seasons begin, I am honored once again to by having another article featured on SheKnows.com.
I would be ever so thankful if you checked out my article on SheKnows.com:

As most of you are aware, I began recapping Marvel's series on Netflix beginning last fall with Marvel's Jessica Jones. You can read those recaps if you click on my Marvel Forever series link on the sidebar or just begin here:
As my recaps for Agent Carter come to a close, I will begin recapping Daredevil Season 2 after its premiere on March 18th. Daredevil Season 1 is, by far, my favorite of all the Marvel television series. The writing for this series was absolutely superb. It was created by Drew Goddard, who also serves as an executive producer for the series. Goddard (currently Oscar nominated for his film adaption of The Martian) co-wrote The Cabin in the Woods with Joss Whedon, along with writing episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Alias. Daredevil is an excellent example of Goddard's tremendous talent.
Here are the trailers for Daredevil Season 2:
This season will feature Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher. The Punisher is rather well known to Marvel fans, having first appeared in The Amazing Spiderman #129 in 1974.
Jon Bernthal is an incredible actor, and I expect his version of The Punisher to be nothing short of fantastic.
It also features Elektra, a well known character in Daredevil comics.
Actress Elodie Yung will portray Elektra in the series. Her performance has been applauded by reviewers as something "ripped straight out of the comic books come to life."
If you have not watched Daredevil Season 1, I encourage you to do so and join me on the journey of recapping and discussing Daredevil Season 2. As always, I will NOT give any major spoilers in my recap of the first episode to give you all a taste of the series.
Expect the recaps to be posted within the first week of the series release.
And yes, I will be writing other kinds of posts, along with continuing my Lifetime Movie
Nightmare Recaps. I know, I KNOW, some of you are here because of the "Military Wife" part, but trust me, I have nothing new to contribute to the military spouse blogging world. There is so much more I need to contribute to the world of geeks, fanboys and fangirls because:

In Episode 8, we left Carter and Jarvis unconscious after Jarvis attempted to kill Frost! Speaking of Frost, also known as Madame Masque, she is none too thrilled the zero matter pulled up Wilkes instead of her. I have really enjoyed Wynn Everett's portrayal of Madame Masque and overall LOVE the true comic book feel of this season's Agent Carter. Every scene feels like it was ripped out of the pages of an issue I would have loved as a child.
With that being said, I have mixed feelings about a portion of Episode 9. But, BUT, I will talk about it more in tonight's recap so let's press onward.
February 23, 2016
When we left Agent Carter last week in Episode 7, Dottie had escaped, Ana Jarvis's life was in peril, and Wilkes was kidnapped by Madame Masque and Blackwing. Let's not forget, the new head of the Los Angeles SSR is the diabolical Vernon Masters. Tonight's episodes should be jammed packed with excitement and intrigue!
However, Marvel friends, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that Hayley Atwell has been cast as the lead in a pilot for a new ABC series titled "Conviction." Of course, yours truly could listen to Hayley Atwell read the phone book for hours so I am thrilled. But, BUT, the bad news is Agent Carter might not be renewed for Season 3.
I must have my Peggy Carter fix! And since she will pass away in Civil War, I feel all the Marvel feels coming on in the near future.
Le Sigh. Let's press on.

You might have noticed last week I did not post a review on Lifetime's valentine to Tinder, Wrong Swipe. Folks, I attempted to watch this movie and it was so bloody awful I wanted to set fire to something. And unlike Adele, it was not the rain.
When a movie brings out the pyromaniac in me, it is best I pass.
Fire is my fave element #firefire

In Episode 6, we saw the return of the OG Black Widow which was pretty damn exciting. Especially since we left her IN PERIL! Whitney Frost is now the head of the Council of Nine and poor, poor Chadwick is dead. Shouldn't mess with Marvel supervillians, Chadwick.
Because this is a limited series, these episodes are JAM PACKED. Thus, like always, we have a lot to cover in the 2nd half of tonight's two part episode event.
February 16, 2016
As we closed Episode 5 of Agent Carter, Wilkes had completely disappeared. We also discussed Agent Carter's love life and the will she/won't she/back and forth relationship with Sousa.
Folks, without a doubt, Marvel is trying to lay the groundwork for Agent Carter's husband to be. And my money is still on Sousa, if not before, then more than ever now. Unless Sousa dies at some point (and if so, I quit life on Marvel messing with Peggy Carter's heart #forrealtho), I firmly believe he ends up being Carter's soulmate.
In tonight's episode, we see the return of the OG Black Widow Dottie Underwood. Bridget Regan is a fun actress to watch, so without further ado, let's begin.

#MaddiethePug just began her Valentine's Day Vacation! It is pretty exciting because we are staying at a totally new #ho-tel on our first night.
BabyBelle Pug loves the new #ho-tel.
It is #prettykewl.
Pillows are my kryptonite.
I am a VI-PUG, of course.
And Mommy? Well, she is busy getting into the spirit.
Editor's Note: AND, I got my sushi fix. #yesssss
Our new #ho-tel room has a window seat.
We love looking out the window.
Hope you have a great Valentine's Day weekend!
And all your wildest dreams come true.
We love you!
What are your Valentine's Day plans? Let us know in the comments below!
Your Puggy Valentine,

Last week, on Episode 4: Smoke and Mirrors, Calvin Chadwick finally saw what Whitney Frost was capable of, and friends, she is capable of becoming "whatever she wants." With only five episodes left, tonight we see Carter coming face to face with Madame Masque.
I know, I KNOW, ABC only gives us ten episodes. #Lame
Anyhoo, last week I saw a conversation on another blog regarding Agent Carter's love life. Some are not too thrilled about Marvel creating a pseudo-relationship for Carter with Wilkes. Others, even yours truly, are tired of the back and forth will she/won't she between Carter and Sousa. But, BUT, I think they are playing a little game with the audience. Remember in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when Carter briefly mentioned her husband in a film reel and stated that Steve Rogers saved his life? I think ALL of us were curious about the identity of her husband. A good portion of the fans think it might be Sousa. But some others think it could even be Thompson (I guess people could change? Still, EW!).
What do you think? Or are we over analyzing this series?
Now, let's press on to tonight's episode!

Last weekend, I received a comment from Caron Tschampion, the writer of Lifetime's Online Abduction. I suppose I do not share this with my readers often, but in the past, I have been contacted by writers, directors and even actors of these films I recap. All of them have been extremely nice and have a great sense of humor about my recaps. If nothing else ever comes of my blog, it is really an honor to be able to "connect" with the entertainment industry in some way or another.
Thinking of all Lifetime has done/is doing for me had me feeling some kind of way. Thus, I wrote a little song to commemorate #thefeels:
**Please sing along to the tune of 80s hair band Firehouse's classic song Love Of A Lifetime:
I guess the Lifetime recaps are here to stay.
I'll just keep losing brain cells every Saturday.
Perhaps the scripts will improve; I'll put it in my prayer.
Yeah that shit will never come true
Because Lifetime isn't fair.
I finally found my LOVE FOR THE LIFETIME!
A love that causes me to drink more booze.
I finally found my LOVE FOR THE LIFETIME!
Like a forever lingering rancid fart.
I finally found my LOVE FOR THE LIFETIME.
Yep, I need therapy. Le Sigh.

As you all know, #MaddiethePug LOVES to eat. Actually, #MaddiethePug LIVES to eat. Well, recently, I have not been very happy with the food Mommy feeds me. Around lunch, Mommy has to beg me to eat my food and I turn into "Fussbucket #MaddiethePug." It is not #prettykewl because Mommy gets frustrated and I just stand around like a goat for anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour barking and looking at my food bowl.
So, Mommy decided to buy new food.
I FREAKING LOVE THIS STUFF! As soon as Mommy opened it, she noticed it had no odor which made her happy (Editor's Note: I loathe stinky dog food smell. Yuck!). She put the bowl of food down and I immediately started gobbling and smacking. It is delicious. My favorite Rachael Ray Nutrish flavors are Chicken Paw Pie and Hearty Beef Stew.
Here I am enjoying my new food:
Since Mommy started feeding me Rachael Ray Nutrish, I have lots of new energy and I have normal #MaddiethePug nougies (NO runny poo or upset tummy). Mommy is thrilled to see the food is making me a happy, healthier girl. I have been running around like crazy!
But no worries, I still do a lot of this:
Because I am pug.
Editor's Note: I know, I KNOW, I bought this at the grocery store and not everyone is a fan of "store brand food;" please do not give me grief! Maddie really seems to love it so far and she is SUCH a picky eater when it comes to puppy food. Also, this post was not sponsored. Rachael Ray does not give two flips about me or my blog. However, she should love my pugs because they are both AWESOME.
Have you ever tried the Rachael Ray pet food? What is your pet's favorite brand of food? Mommy would love to know so maybe we can look for other food to try that you all suggest! Let us know in the comments below.
Smacking on my new food, I am,

As we closed Episode 3: Better Angels, Whitney Frost demonstrated her supervillian powers. Who else is excited to see Whitney undergo a full facial transformation before the end of Season 2?
From reading the comments on my prior posts, I am thrilled to learn some of you are watching Agent Carter (or at least giving a few episodes a look). Nothing pleases me more than to know I have turned some of you on to Marvel television. As an aside, I will be recapping the entire season, and will begin recapping again on March 18, 2016 when Daredevil returns for its second season on Netflix.
Now, let's get started because there is much to cover in tonight's episode.
