This Week in TV Blogging: Nov. 24-30

So, I started the week strong and then the two weeks I took off caught up with me. I was so busy trying to keep my head above water that I neglected my poor blog and losing a day to booth duty at a conference in the middle of the week sure didn’t help. I’m [...]

Full Seasons for Chuck & Life

Ooh… Ausiello is reporting that NBC has picked up Chuck and Life for the full season. This just after I admitted these are two of my top three new favorite shows this season. SCORE! Now I really hope the talks today have positive results. It’d be sad for all of my favorites get full seasons [...]

Let’s hope today’s talks really do end in a deal being struck so this strike can end. The last Speechless video is up and well worth watching so I’m embedding it below. Check it out: For more on these videos, visit speechlesswithoutwriters.com. Also, don’t forget about the Pencils2MediaMoguls campaign. They’re at 300,000 pencils right now [...]

As Seen by Rae: Chickens, Blackmailers, & Bridesmaids! Oh My!

I know I have other things to post about but it feels like forever since I’ve actually rambled about TV (probably because it has been forever) so that’s just what I’m going to do. I’m finally all caught up on things and didn’t even have to do too much juggling last night. I am, however, [...]

Ranking the New Shows of the Season

November sweeps are over and we’ll be heading into repeats soon. It seems like a good time to take a look back at how the new shows of the season are faring so far. A few weeks ago, Scooter polled a few TV bloggers to find out which were our favorite new shows of the [...]

Don’t Forget…

Wow. I disappeared for a while there, eh? A side effect of vacation. When your work chains you to a computer 8 hours a day, it’s easy to get into the habit of NOT turning on a computer. Anyway. Time to get back into the habit and I’ve got a few quick reminders for you [...]

This Week in TV Blogging: Nov. 10-16

I’ve been a little absent this week but there’s been plenty of TV blogging going on elsewhere. Check out the links below for what you’ve missed. BuzzSugar: This week, we debated the greatest TV icons (no Sesame Street or Saget?), felt a little underwhelmed by the new Lost mobisodes, and wondered if late-night shows should [...]

Behind the Scenes at Supernatural: Visual Effects

Just like I promised, here are two more special Supernatural behind-the-scenes featurettes. This time they’re about visual effects and feature one of the awesome FX guys I met when I visited the set last year, Ivan Hayden.

Coming out of the Dark: How YOU Can Help

It’s funny how I can go for a couple of days without posting but make me pledge to be silent for one day and suddenly I have a thousand things I want to blog about. Ha. Luckily I was traveling most of the day so I didn’t spend the day fighting the urge to post. [...]

Musing on Why Some TV Isn’t “Must Watch Immediately” TV

Status Check: Best in Week still not done. I have, however, finally caught up on all of my TV… just in time to fall behind while I’m on vacation. FX made me very happy by picking up Damages for two more seasons. Remember how I used to say that I liked Jericho while I was [...]

This Week in TV Blogging: Nov. 3-9

BuzzSugar: We wondered about the worst television shows ever, wondered if the writers’ strike would make us watch more Web-only programming, and got creeped out in a good way by Dexter’s Dark Defender webisodes. Daemon’s TV: Sandie offers a first look at pictures from Battlestar Galactica “Razor”. Eric talks about “twisted couples” on CBS’ Numb3rs [...]

A Question for Fans: Episodes Written by Scabs

I’m almost all caught on last week’s TV but I fear that I won’t get Best in Week out before the new week begins. Ah, well, no one’s perfect, right? Which, of course, means this post is once again going to be about the strike. Only this time I’m curious about how fans feel about [...]
