Shorewood's got a serious case of being fantastic.
It's too bad Shorewood's greatness can't be bottled and shared with other, less great towns. Some scientist or doctor should figure out a way to do this, to maybe develop a Shorewood serum that can be injected into other towns, like a steroid or a vaccine. We can always hope. In the meantime let's take a look at the wonder of Shorewood with another SHOREWOOD REWIND: A British robot lady read the true crime sensation Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson, by all-around great guy Joe Hosey. Dave Wilson really liked The Raven. A distraught Shorewood woman has put up a $2,000 reward for the return of her missing cat, Casper. House Hunt! Burrito Express was the Mother's Day brunch Readers' Choice award winner.

Well now you can.
Have you ever felt the urge to hear a female robot read the true crime sensation Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson by me, Joe Hosey? Well you can satisfy that urge now on YouTube. That's right, YouTube! For absolutely no cost at all you can go to YouTube and listen to a robot with a British accent read "an audio book summary of FATAL VOWS: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson by JOSEPH HOSEY," which, by the way, is me. And we like how it sounds. In fact, we're thinking about getting in touch with that robot about doing a spoken word for some of the stuff on this site.

Lifetime posted huge numbers in the first quarter of 2012, and the Drew Peterson movie was a big reason, according to television website TheFutonCritc.com
Drew Peterson: Untouchable, the smash-hit movie based on the critically acclaimed true crime sensation Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson, by Joseph Hosey (me), was a driving force in the Lifetime network's incredibly strong showing in the first quarter of 2012, says the website TheFutonCritic.com. TheFutonCritic said Lifetime "posted major growth in viewership among the key demographics in First Quarter 2012 versus First Quarter 2011," and pointed to Drew Peterson: Untouchable as a big reason: "Lifetime was the quarter's #1 basic cable network for movies among Women 25-54 and Women 18+ across total day and the debut of Drew Peterson: Untouchable, starring Rob Lowe, was the #1 movie telecast across basic cable among …

Another Drew Peterson play is set to open Sunday.
First there was the book, then the play and the movie seen by millions. And on Sunday, the Drew Peterson saga will get yet another dramatic treatment with the opening of Dating Walter Dante. WBEZ had a story on the new play and said this: "It's hard to imagine a comedy based on the Drew Peterson case, but playwright Jon Steinhagen is on a roll: this will be the third of his plays to go up in the past six months." Hard for them to imagine, maybe, but not hard for us here at the Shorewood Patch. But that's because we already saw a very clever play based on the Peterson story back in June. It was called Waiting For Drew Peterson, starring Nancy Friedrich and Amy Speckien, and directed by Scott Goldstein, and was performed at the Annoyance …

Last week started out big.
The Giants are going to the Super Bowl! They made it, even though the last step before the big game was a tough fight with the 49ers. It went to overtime, and Kenny Williams' kid gave the Giants the break they needed with his second fumble. And now New York's got the Patriots again. You couldn't ask for a more anticipated match-up. But you could ask what this has to do with Shorewood. Well, we'll tell you what this has to do with Shorewood. What this has to do with Shorewood is nothing. And we don't care. Because the Giants are somehow in the Super Bowl. And we like their chances. So there you go. Here's some other stuff that happened last week: Drew Peterson's lawyers are going to try to have the accused wife-killer's murder trial moved …

The Daily interviewed director Mikael Salomon about the making of the movie based on the book "Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson."
The Daily sat down with Mikael Salomon, the director of Drew Peterson: Untouchable and got his take on the making of the movie, along with his thoughts on Mr. Untouchable himself. "I thought, 'What a creep this guy is,'” Salomon said in The Daily interview. "You know how it is, in your private life, you make your own judgment, which of course you can’t in a medium without getting in trouble." Salomon also marveled at how Peterson seemingly "could stick his foot in his mouth so publicly and in such an obnoxious fashion" and noted the former Bolingbrook cop and accused wife-killer, who is played by Rob Lowe, is "obviously a chauvinistic pig." The world premiere of Drew Peterson: Untouchable, based on the true crime sensation Fatal Vows: The …

CBS reported that Saturday night's world premiere of "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" may force the upcoming murder trial to hit the road. Or something.
CBS reporter Mike Puccinelli broke a story speculating that the new Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable just might give the accused wife-killer's lawyers the leverage they need to haul Peterson's murder trial out of Will County and over to some venue without access to even basic cable packages. Puccinelli even got CBS legal analyst Irv Miller to confirm that yes, Drew Peterson: Untouchable could be the moving truck that will carry the Peterson trial out of Joliet and deliver it to a jury in a land without televisions. According to the CBS report, Miller "says the release of the film will poison the jury pool and possibly give the defense attorneys grounds to ask that the trial be moved." Yeah, that's exactly what Miller says about …
