Have a Sitcom Medley

I have to admit something to you guys. Remember this 12 Days of Christmas video that was circulating back in December? Yeah, I bought their DVD. They’re like sirens… I couldn’t resist. I got it earlier in the week but kept forgetting it at work. Today I finally remembered to bring it home and was [...]

Don’t Forget: New Supernatural Tonight!

Tonight’s a new episode of Supernatural but you knew that right? After all, just last Friday I shared two preview clips from the episode, “Malleus Maleficarum.” And, if you watched those clips, you’ve surely been on the edge of your seat all week to see what that hotel scene was all about! But, just in [...]

I’d Like to be More Interesting

Did I ever tell you guys the story about how, somehwere in France, I’m known simply as “a Desperate Housewives fan” or how I almost met Marc Cherry on the picket lines back in November? The Friday I was in LA was a fan day on the NBC/Universal picket lines. It was mostly for Battlestar [...]

This Week in TV Blogging: Jan 19-25

Wow. I’m so behind on posting! What can I say, since Thursday I’ve been busy creating first a Star Wars cake and then a Puppies in My Pocket cake. The actual cake execution actually goes pretty quickly but not the prep. At least, not the first time I create a new design. Some day I’ll [...]

Introducing Adopt A Writer

I’m happy that the AMPTP and WGA are finally talking again. I’m hopeful that the AMPTP/DGA deal will give them sound foundation on which to build. In the midst of CBS, the CW, and FOX cutting their pilot orders and NBC declaring an end to pilot season altogether, how great would it be if the [...]

Let Chuck Cheer You Up

Know what can make a crappy afternoon better? Preview clips of tomorrow’s two brand-new episodes of Chuck. Of course, if you’re like me (located in Central Florida), you probably won’t be happy to hear that you don’t actually get to see the second episode thanks to the Floridian Republican Convention. I guess these clips will [...]

When You Need a Little TLC

I used to be hopelessly addicted to Trading Spaces. My friends may not have been Buffy fans but, man, you should have heard our discussions about what crazy design Hildi had come up with this week or our predictions for how Doug would fuck with his homeowners next week. I may watch a dozen such [...]

TV: Why I Watch

Rae’s talked about it, so hopefully you guys have checked out the amazing “Why We Write” site. At one point some writers were talking about starting a “Why We Watch” companion blog and one of them asked me to jot something down for it. Since it’s not looking like the project is going to happen, [...]

As Seen By Rae: From PR to ER

You guys, I’m starting to panic about all my shows being gone! Obviously I’ve known about this forever but actually being to watch all of my shows on the night they air and comment on them the next day is forcing me to face the reality of the situation. Of course, that reality should be [...]

Q&A with Jaimie Alexander of Kyle XY

As mentioned earlier in the week, I had the pleasure of participating in a Q&A session with Jaimie Alexander, who plays Jessi XX on Kyle XY, on Tuesday afternoon.

Book Review: Who Stole the Funny?

Book: Who Stole the Funny?: A Novel of Hollywood Author: Robby Benson I bought this book, appropriately enough, while I was on vacation in LA. It kept me amused the entire trip home. That’s high praise from me because I enjoy lots of books but I rarely find one that can make me literally laugh [...]

Watch Out for that Tree!

I have a special place in my heart for George of the jungle. My favorite portrayal of him, by far, was Brendan Fraser’s in the Disney version from 1997. So, when the folks over at M80 contacted me to let me know about a new George of the Jungle would be starting this Friday, January [...]
