Broadway Meets Hip-Hop

You know what? Every week I want to talk about America’s Best Dance Crew and every week I never find the time. No more. I’m making the time. If I don’t, the show will be over and all of you fans will still be stuck commenting on my post about the premiere. So, last night [...]

It’s Always Sunny in…. Space?

So FOX is picking up the pilot and five additional scripts of Boldy Going Nowhere from the guys behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I couldn’t be happier about it. Sure, you might mistake the logline of this comedy for another (short-lived) FOX drama but I’m sure these guys are well aware of that. [...]

Everyone Else Is Doin’ It

If the CW wanted to get people talking, the possible revival of BH 90210 with Rob Thomas at the helm definitely worked. It’s the one TV news story I’ve seen repeated all over the place today. And I’m about to talk about it too so just call me a lemming. Or maybe not since the [...]

Two Hump Day Reminders

Don’t forget Top Chef: Chicago premieres tonight at 10PM on BRAVO. This has quickly become one of my favorite reality shows. I even prefer it over Project Runway although it’d be sweet if Tim Gunn would get some cooking expertise so he could be included. Then it’d be perfect! Either way, I can’t wait for [...]

TV Quote of the Day: Don’t Be So Literal

You know why I love Psych? Because of little gems like this:  JULIET: Detective Lassiter is literally on fire today. SHAWN: ‘Literally on fire’ as in Michael Jackson in the Pepsi commercial, or as in a misuse of the word ‘literally’?   — Psych: 2×02 – “Sixty Million Years Off”

The World Without Shrimp: Re-Watching BtVS S5, Pt 1

This weekend I lent a friend the first two seasons of Angel to watch and she asked if I was trying to ensure that she gets nothing done for days. Then, a few minutes later, she admitted that Angel has become her favorite TV show. Behold the addictive powers of the Whedonverse! As mentioned before, [...]

TV Quote of the Day: Spring Ahead

It’s that time again… time to spend all of next week teaching your body it has to wake up an hour earlier. Damn Daylight Saving Time. Or, as Homer would say, “Lousy farmers!” But that’s not my quote for the day, mostly because it’s about the Fall DST time change, not Spring. So, instead, you [...]

Still Crazy (About Indy) After All These Years

Marion: You’re not the man I knew ten years ago. Indiana: It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage. Alright, I know this isn’t TV but I don’t care. I am so in love with next week’s Entertainment Weekly’s cover. Which begs the question… will I ever get over my crush on Harrison Ford? I [...]

TV Quote of the Day: The Psychology of Others

I don’t need to wait all day to be sure this is my quote of the day. As I told Just Jody in an email this morning, I’m keeping with my pattern of unpopular fandom opinions. Unlike what seems like everyone else in the world, I did not think Lost was all that great last [...]

TV Quote of the Day: Butt Monkeys

This one is GMMR’s fault. She’s speeding through Buffy for the first time ever (and loving it!) and she got to season 5 today. Unlike others, I loved “Buffy vs. Dracula” and this moment is just one of the many reasons: XANDER: Where is he?? Where’s the creep that turned me into his spider-eating man-bitch? [...]

TV Quote of the Day: Stunned By Soup

I had soup for lunch today and that inevitably leads to this… SOUP NAZI: No soup for you! – Seinfeld: 7×06 – “The Soup Nazi”

High School Reunion Premieres Tonight on TV Land

TV Land’s new original series, High School Reunion, premieres tonight at 10PM. Who knew TV Land actually had original programming?! And I’m not picking on TV Land with that comment. I’m a TV whore so I love any channel that brings me so many of my childhood favorites; needless to say, I watch a lot [...]

Give the Gift of Reading, Win a Set Visit

TV Quote of the Day: Black Bears in The Office

Thanks to everyone for the quotes from yesterday. I fully intend to blame you when they get stuck in my head. Today’s quote is a result of being surrounded by The Office paraphernalia in my office. I’ve got a wall calendar to my right, magnets on the white board to my right, ‘I ♥ Jim’ [...]

Getting Terminated (Or Not)

First, can I just say how awesome it is that Sonny and Patrick will be working on the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia writing staff next season? Y’all know my love for It’s Always Sunny so I’m happy that I’ll get to enjoy their humor on it. Plus, hey, that news means I’m getting another [...]

TV Quote of the Day: Turning Evil

I get TV quotes stuck in my head every day. I watch an episode before going to work and one line stays with me. I do something or someone else does something and the only appropriate response comes from one of my favorite characters. In an attempt to get myself back into the routine of [...]

Peeling Away the Layers

Nothing amuses me quite like The Onion. How I Met Your Mother, Alyson Hannigan, and even Veronica Mars fans will appreciate the O’s humorous take on the FCC and their ridiculous fines on TV content. Check it out below: FCC Okays Nudity On TV If It’s Alyson Hannigan
