She wants to step forward, but instantly a buzzer goes off. Slowly, others wake up as well. When suddenly the lights turn on, they all wake. Whoever lifts their feet from the ground, dies.

If you try to get away, you die as well. At first everyone is frightened, but when they realize that they can control who dies by voting, chaos begins. Who will die? Who should die? Will someone survive? Who should survive?

When you're a fan of Evil Dead, don't miss the TV series Ash vs Evil Dead. Ash vs Evil Dead is a sequel to the original trilogy. I really like the Evil Dead movies. And because I will be visiting Weekend of Hell in a few weeks, I decided to start watching Ash vs. Evil Dead. At Weekend of Hell, Bruce Campbell & Ray Santagio will be guests. Amazing, right?
Noah Solloway is a writer, struggling to write his second book. He's married and has four children. With his family, he goes to the resort town of Montauk. He's focusing on his second book which is complicated by his wealthy parents in law. They don't actually approve him and keep pushing for him to make more money. In Montauk, he meets Alison. She's a waitress in Montauk, struggling with her marriage after losing her child. Noah meets Alison at the restaurant where she works. Not very long after that, they start an affair.
The Affair focuses on both of them and tells the story specifically from their perspectives. This means that there's sometimes an overlap and you'll see the same moment through both their eyes. It shows you how 2 people can remember the same events differently. In season 2, 2 more perspectives are added.
This year, we went to Comic Con Ahoy for the first time. Liv and I thought it was time for a Comic Con again (the last one we attended was the Dutch Comic Con Winter Edition in December). And Comic Con Ahoy was our first opportunity this year! The guest list was nice, quite some actors I wanted to see. So we were definitely excited when we got in the train that Saturday!

Here are my thoughts about "Honor" (S08E09).
We went to New York and attended 2 days of New York Comic Con! It was amazing to be at such a big con. We went to New York Comic Con on Friday and Sunday.We ordered the tickets in June. On the day the tickets got available for sale, we bought these tickets. We just wanted to be sure that we would be able to attend the convention! New York Comic Con had a nice guest list. But when we walked around at the convention on Friday, I was surprised to see an extra guest: Alex Vincent!
Two weeks ago, Tristan and I went to Florence in Italy for a few days and this is Part 2 of my article of the "Inferno" Movie Locations in this amazing city. Last week you could read about the first part of our journey following Langdon's footsteps. (Haven't read Part 1 yet? You can find it here!) Last week I told you about the Porta Romana and the Boboli Gardens and now I will resume my story about the "Inferno" movie locations.
After Langdon wakes up in a hospital in Florence, he meets Sienna Brooks and finds out he is being chased down by multiple people. When he finds a Faraday pointer containing Botticelli’s "Map of Hell" from Dante's "Inferno". Langdon finds out that they have to make their way to the Palazzo Vecchio. They get into the car and get on their way. At the Porta Romana, they have to get out of the car and resume their way by foot. Because they are being chased by the WHO and an assassin they sneak over the wall of the Boboli Gardens to get to Palazzo Pitti (where there is an entrance to the Vasari passageway, that will lead them to the Palazzo Vecchio) ....
