NBC Plans New and Improved Model of “Knight Rider”

Variety is reporting that Ben Silverman, over at NBC, wants to revive Knight Rider. That should make me very happy. Not only did I love the original, Doug Liman, who has been asked to produce the show and is open to directing the two-hour backdoor pilot that they hope to air as a telepic later [...]

Thursday Premieres & “Survivor: China” Preview

Why hello there Busiest TV Night of the Week! DVR/TiVO across the country will be getting quite the workout tonight. I have my fingers crossed that both of mine mind their manners and don’t decide to to randomly not record my shows (go ahead, laugh, but it’s happened before!). To help everyone keep track of [...]

Why You Should Watch NBC’s “Bionic Woman” Tonight, by Jody & Rae

I had great plans to write about why you should watch Bionic Woman tonight but, as sometimes happens, I got busy with the day job and real life. Rae was supposed to pester me until I did it but apparently she’s got the same day job/real life issue that I do. So, when she finally [...]

Missing “Mars” & Tuesday TV Links

I’m a bit sad today. As much as I’m loving have all new episodes to watch this week, I’m missing one show that won’t ever air a new episode again. Veronica Mars. It doesn’t really matter whether you loved or hated or, worse yet, haven’t seen one episode of VM, surely we all can appreciate [...]

As Seen By Rae: Monday Night Television from HIMYM to “Heroes”

One of the things I hate about getting to see pilots early is that premiere week ends up not being quite as exciting as it could be. My real premiere week starts next week, when I finally get to see some new episodes of the shows I liked and can see if they’re living up [...]

Exclusive “Death Proof” Footage from Blockbuster

It’s Friday night and instead of being out partying like most single 30 year olds, I’m making a Power Ranger themed cake and watching The Best Years. I’m not sure whether that makes me pathetic or just plain weird. Anyway, enough of my sad little life. This isn’t TV-related but I love Quentin Tarantino. So, [...]

Spies Meet Nerds: Checking Out “Chuck”

One of the best reviewed new fall shows, and my personal favorite of the new crop is Chuck. I’ve watched the pilot episode twice now, and I loved it even more the second time. I was a little concerned that the atmosphere at Comic-Con where I saw the pilot the originally might have had a [...]

Polter-Cow’s Top Five Shows You’re Not Watching

Every show can’t be Heroes. Sometimes the awesome shows don’t get widespread recognition; hell, sometimes people don’t even know they exist. As a Veronica Mars fan, I have a lot of experience with this, so I’m shining a spotlight on five shows that deserve to be given a chance. Avatar: The Last Airbender. Do you [...]

As Seen By Rae: “Top Chef”‘s Final 5 and “Back to You” Premiere

Tonight’s my last relaxing Thursday for a while. I’m excited for all the new episodes we get next week but I haven’t quite figured out how I’m going to juggle all of my Thursday shows just yet. Plus, I’m babysitting three of my nieces next Thursday. So much for watching one show live! So I [...]
