Three years into the senseless American Civil War, in 1864, the dilapidated mansion of Miss Martha Farnsworth's Seminary for Young Ladies is still running, occupied by the matriarch, a teacher and five students in Spanish moss-draped Virginia. However, when a young student stumbles upon Corporal John McBurney, a wounded Union deserter on the verge of death, the already frail balance of things will be disrupted, as the hesitant headmistress decides to take him in to heal from his injury. Little by little, as the unwelcome guest arouses an uneasy sexual excitation among the women of the secluded boarding school, it is not before long that they will find themselves competing for the alluring man's favour. Undoubtedly, this handsome devil is a manipulator, nevertheless, will the ladies stay forever beguiled by his charm?

On an ordinary day in bustling downtown Madrid, life ticks over as usual, while inside a decrepit and noisy central bar, a motley assortment of common urbanites is killing time indolently, up until a loud gunshot sends chills down the spine. Out of the blue, now a man lies dead in front of the bar in a pool of blood, and then surprisingly, in broad daylight, another death follows. Where did that mysterious lethal bullet come from? Is this an act of terrorism or is there a solitary invisible sniper hidden on a roof? As hysteria prevails and the bodies miraculously vanish into thin air, the perplexed and terrified bar's regulars are bound to turn on each other, paranoid and suspicious of the potential assassin who might be hiding inside the place. Is there indeed a wolf among sheep?

They begin an affair, leaving Eun-shik on the sidelines. The national competition approaches and complications arise.

After accused of murdering her family, Nica is taken to an asylum and thinks that she's the cause of the deaths of her family. However, when grizzly deaths start to occur, she then realizes that Chucky, her illusion might not be make believe. She also finds out that the doll is slowly starting to possess anyone or anything to join a huge cult to kill off Chucky's victims, but things don't go to well in the asylum, including for Chucky's long lost friend "Andy Barcley" who tries to stop the cult from getting bigger while also trying to get past Chucky's wife, "Tiffany." One of the better films of the series. Certainly one of the better films of the seemingly new saga. That seemed to start officially with the last film, but I will say started as soon as BRIDE OF CHUCKY came about and Jennifer Tilly became more associated with the series. Joining Brad Dourif in the ranks of usually appearing or being a voice in the series.

Let me start off by saying that I used to watch the gorgeous ladies of wrestling on a regular basis as a kid. I wasn't a die hard fan watching it every week but occasionally enough. So when it went off the air I was disappointed. Decades later when the documentary on the league/show came out I was overjoyed and brought back many nostalgic memories. So of course I was excited to watch this show. As it seemed to be in the right hands and had Alison Brie headlining who I am a fan of and Marc Marion who I am also a fan of him and his podcast.
The show isn't a total success but it is far from a failure.
