C… What Schedule?

Last day of Upfronts… the day the CW broke my heart. Or something melodramatic like that. It’s a shame I’m in love with SPN and an interested in Gossip Girl because I’d love to walk away from this network right now. Which is petty and stupid, I know, but it’d be damn satisfying on a [...]

I think you’re going to get to say goodbye to everybody.

No time for chitchat! It’s a busy week. External reviews at work, lots of new TV to watch, and the Upfronts. Next will be positively boring compared to this one. I’m right in the middle of reading Neptune Noir: Unauthorized Investigations into Veronica Marswhich is is a double edged sword given the VM news this [...]

Behold: It’s on the Eye.

Day three and CBS is up. A little bittersweet for me since some of my favorites from this season are gone but the one I was really worried about is safe. You take the good with the bad? Yeah, that might be my mantra for the next two days. CBS’s 2007-2008 Schedule New shows in [...]

You’ve given me everything I need.

Sniff. I totally just cried like a baby. To say I get overly attached to my TV shows would be a bit of an understatement. You know. I know there were a lot of doubters out there but I think that was a perfect goodbye for GG. And, also, they knew it. You can’t tell [...]

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Gilmores of our lives.

Awww… tonight is the last episode of Gilmore Girls ever and despite being unhappy with it lately I’m still not ready to say goodbye. Sigh. I couldn’t let the night go by(e) without doing something to remember the past seven seasons… We must start with Gilmorisms: Gilmore Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! And be footloose [...]

That was like a big iconic moment in all of our lives.

I’m having a bird problem. Not exactly how I intended to start this post but it’s bugging me and maybe someone out there has some suggestions for me. Last Thursday, as I was walking out to my car, this bird flew right by my head. I figured it was just a timing thing… at least [...]

Do you know your Alphabet (schedule)?

On day two, we get ABC. No real shakeups/surprises on this one. I’m a little disappointed Cashmere Mafia isn’t premiering untl after DWTS finishes for the fall as it’s one of the shows I’m looking forward to. Other than that, I can’t wait to see Pushing Daisies and I’ll probably at least give the rest [...]

Don’t Forget: HIMYM Finale Tonight!

Tonight is the night! The How I Met Your Mother season finale is finally here. I can’t wait for everyone to see it because I’m sorta in love with it and I want to talk about what happens. Only I have to wait to do that because it wouldn’t be cool to accidentally give anything [...]

The Peacock’s fall schedule doesn’t ruffle my feathers…

First up this week? NBC. So far I’m liking their schedule. Of course, that may change once I see the other schedules but, for now, nothing they’ve moved has me nervously awaiting the other schedules. NBC’s 2007-2008 Schedule New shows in caps MONDAY 8 PM: Deal or No Deal 9 PM: Heroes 10 PM: JOURNEYMAN [...]

And so it begins…

Happy Upfronts Week, y’all. I reserve the right to change that adjective as needed. I’m jealous of those who get to be there (*cough* the TV Addict and eolivet *cough*) but eager to see the new schedules. Here’s hoping the carnage isn’t too bad… Mo and I saw Waitress and it’s as wonderful as everyone [...]

I hope there will be management parables.

Remember how I said I’d be talking about Bones today? I lied. Dinner plans kept me from watching any recorded shows before all the new Thursday shows began and I’m behind on those as well. But enough about what I didn’t watched and on to what I did… Survivor: Fiji Boo keeps screwing up their [...]

Damn you, Stewart, stop sending me these mixed signals!

It’s a TV themed Friday list: Ken Levine posted an amusing entry relating to Upfronts last night. Definitely worth the read if you’re as into TV as I am. Jane’s entry yesterday was about attending group meetings etc. and how it’s a great opportunity to meet others who are working towards the same goal. Now [...]

Help!!

OMG. I hate it when the DVR cuts off before the end of an episode! Can anyone tell me what happened at the very end of The Office, right after Pam goes off to walk in the water and Jim looks directly into the camera??

Excuse me, don’t you people want to be rescued?

Today’s watchword: BUSY, as in “as a bee” Tonight’s TV Scheduling Notes: Once again, NBC’s comedies are supersized so be sure to check your recordings. If you’re taping The Office, chances are likely that one of your 9PM shows has been knocked off the record list for this evening. Just remember that Grey’s Anatomy repeats [...]

Review of ABC’s “Traveler”

Back in August, I got my grubby little hands on a few of last fall’s pilots. Included in the bunch was my friend’s favorite, a little show called Traveler. I watched and I loved it. In fact, I gave it two thumbs up in my brief review. I had no idea when it’d show up [...]

On the (Orlando) Fringe

The 16th Annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is May 17-28 at Loch Haven Park (and other select venues) and I wanted to pimp it a bit. Not that they need it seeing as how it’s well known and always well attended. I haven’t been in a few years but, now that I live a [...]

I’m not ordering good boy while wishing I’d ordered bad boy.

Does anyone else feel like it should be Friday already? Just me? In additions to the fires in CA/LA, we’ve got several here in central FL and the smoke is pretty thick today (my allergies aren’t happy). I’m doing a rain dance for all of us. Sadly it doesn’t seem to be working. But moving [...]

You make me happy all the time.

My cable is FINALLY back so I was able to enjoy Heroes to its full extent last night. Good thing or I’d be quite the pissy girl today. However, being out of work an extra, unplanned, day has wrecked havoc on my daily routine and I’ve actually been crazy busy all day. The meetings I [...]
