Friday Fun: The YOU Network

Thanks to everyone who cast themselves last Friday! I began working on a freelance job Saturday and it’s pretty much consumed all of my non-work hous since so I haven’t had the chance to go back and reply to each of you yet, but I loved reading them throughout the week. And, uh, I realized [...]

7 Random Things About Me (and My TV)

modernmami tagged me and it’s been awhile since I’ve done this meme so why not, right? Except this is a TV blog so we’re gonna do this TV-style! (Since that kinda cheats modernmami out of her facts about me, I posted some of those over at my raelee blog.) For the record, I just made [...]

My So-Called God of Love

I was just musing on Jace’s latest post in which he discusses Rob Thomas’ Good Behavior pilot script and mentions that Bobby Cannavale may be cast as Cupid’s Trevor. I am not familiar enough with Cannavale to know if I should have objections to him as Trevor. Jace isn’t wrong in thinking that no matter [...]

Blog A Little, Blog A Lot

(BuzzSugar) This week we took a look at some pictures from the new post-strike episode of Moonlight. (Daemon’s TV) Mikey finally got around to discussing the racy development in the Buffy the [...]

Friday Fun: Cast Yourself

Like I said, it’s Friday and there’s no better day for a little fun. I’ve had grand plans to institute a regular Friday Fun feature on the site for, well, ever. Basically it’d just be a new game or trivia fun or silliness each Friday. I’m a lot of talk, though, and have to follow [...]

Casting “America’s Best Dance Crew” Season 2

You guys, can I tell you how much I missed not having a new episode of America’s Best Dance Crew to watch last night? So much that I had to do drastic things like get talked into helping a friend assemble her new kitchen cabinets and bake and decorate a cake for a co-worker just [...]

The Ultimate Pop Culture Trivia Challenge

It’s Friday, it’s time for a little fun! First up is the Ultimate Pop Culture Trivia Challenge that Hey! Nielsen is running. I was one of the dozens of pop culture sites and entertainment bloggeres that were asked to contribute trivia questions for the challenge and it’s a fun way to waste a few minutes. [...]

Top 5 TV Couples

This was Kelly’s request in the Top 5 Meme and it ended up being harder than I thought it would. I’m a very character-based girl and as such I tend to be more invested in individuals than couples. It’s rare that I actually care if two exact characters are together. It’s more likely that I [...]

Netflixing It: 30 Rock & Popular

My Netflix queue is a weird place. For a long time, it was nothing but TV shows. Then suddenly I had a bunch of movies I wanted to see and now I’ve cycled back to the shows that were building up at the bottom of the queue. Since I’ve staggered things so that I’m not [...]

Top 5 Whatever You Want

There’s a Top 5 meme going around LiveJournal and I thought it might be kind of fun to do here. Use the comments below to ask me about any type of Top 5 and I’ll post my answers separately. Of course this is a TV blog so I’d like to stick to that arena but, [...]

HIMYM: A Lesson in Continuity

I’ve seen a couple people note that the things Barney did to the Final Four on his list last night weren’t as bad as the things we heard the gang yelling out while playing “The Women Barney Has Tricked Into Sleeping With Him.” I agree but, since I LOVE that at least two of the [...]

Barney Stinson, M.D.

If I hadn’t already enjoyed last night’s How I Met Your Mother, that ending would have made the show for me. You see, I used to watch Doogie Howser, MD and I have been waiting for this show to come through with a Doogie reference for me. I never dreamed they’d go as far to [...]
