I’m a big dork. I have to force myself NOT to make the links posts I’ve been making lately into themes to match their days. Like I really wanted to call this post, WGA Wednesday and I gave some serious thought to holding it until this weekend so I could go with something ssssstriking. I [...]

Let’s Talk One Tree Hill

Was AI good last night? Did any of you watch? Only one of my morning shows was discussing it but I was running a bit late so it’s possible I missed the morning commute conversations. Anyway, I’m just curious how it did on its first night back. I watched a rerun of the Reaper pilot [...]

As Seen By Rae: Cliff Jumpers, Family Dinners, and Fighting Robots

Time to dish about shows. Starting with Kyle XY because of the Q&A with Jaimie Alexander that I participated in today. What was the most important thing I learned from it? Jaimie is pretty damn awesome and not just because she loves Buffy! She’s very down to earth and has a great sense of humor. [...]

Would you pay for that?

The right half of my office whiteboard is covered with personal pictures. Lots of snapshots with friends at birthday parties, out camping, etc. Sprinkled in there are a few pictures of me on the set of Veronica Mars and Supernatural, including one of me and Jason Dohring outside Hair & Makeup (shown here on the [...]

On the Phone with Kyle XY’s April Matson

I have seen the new Kyle XY episode, “To C.I.R. With Love,” that will air this Monday, January 14th, on ABC Family and I think fans are going to really enjoy it. It’s a pretty great follow-up to the literal cliffhanger that we got back in September. That’s why I was excited when I got [...]

A Very Scrubs-y Week in Strike Viral Messages

Scrubs fans will have to wait two more weeks for new episodes but you can get your Zach Braff fix by watching the Speechless video he did. I must admit it’s one of my favorite yet. I like a little humor in my strike videos. If that’s not enough for you, check out the essay [...]

No Hit for Cashmere Mafia

Were you waiting on my thoughts on Cashmere Mafia? Somehow I think not. Still, I finally watched the pilot tonight and I’m sad to say it failed to impress. It wasn’t bad, per se, but it wasn’t especially good either. I really wanted it to be great. I’d have been happy with good and I’d [...]

OTH: 1 Rae: 0

Ok, ok, I have to admit it… I loved tonight’s One Tree Hill. Who knew?! I mean, I was pretty sure I’d give in but I was kind of hoping I wouldn’t. I’m not sure why. Unlike others, I’ve never been ashamed of liking this show. Even when the actors on the show did their [...]

New Episode Countdown

My friends all know I write a TV blog. They are not, however, as into TV as I am and very few of them have ever actually read my blog. They just wait until they see me to ask if I’ve heard anything juicy about their favorite shows. And, up until now, the only interest [...]

As Seen By Rae: Candy Clothes, Celebrities Cooking, and Familiar Faces

New TV! Finally! I didn’t realize how desperate I was for new TV until I finally got some last night. True, I’ve had new reality show episodes to get me through the holidays but those just aren’t the same as scripted TV. I scoff at people who believe reality TV will ever completely replace scripted [...]

Resolution Time

Happy New Year, everybody! I can’t believe we’re already four days into 2008. Here’s hoping it’s a great year for all of us. I don’t personally believe in the concept of New Year’s resolutions but that’s definitely not the norm. Almost everyone I know is busy coming up with and trying to stick to their [...]
