Noteworthy This Weekend

I’m at the office so naturally that means I’m procrastinating and what better way than to jot down some quick notes in the blog, eh? Mini Martini Weekend: M & M and I went to see Sex and The City last night and it was pretty damn awesome. A little long sure but since I [...]

In Plain Sight’s Nichole Hiltz on Brandi

I’ve got a couple more In Plain Sight reviews for you and, I’ve got to say, so far I’m liking what everyone’s saying! Sandie over at Daemon’s TV has seen the first three episodes and is sold and she and I are usually pretty in sync with our viewing pleasures. Plus, Seat42F’s Screener Girl thinks [...]

That’s So Rae

About three weeks ago (!!), Stella tagged me for the six random things meme. I’m willing to bet that she thought I forgot or was ignoring her but I didn’t!! It’s been on my to-do list ever since (along with 14 other tasks I still haven’t done) and even though I should probably get back [...]

On Stands Now: Supernatural Magazine, Issue 4

It’s Thursday and even though I’m unbelievably excited about the Lost finale tonight, I can’t help but miss Supernatural and those Winchester boys. Do you think next season is going to start with Dean having spent the entire summer extended from those hellish bonds? More importantly is he going to get to come back normal [...]

Fred Weller On Being Marshall Mann

Before I introduce you to another member of the In Plain Sight cast, let me point out Alan Sepinwall’s review of the show in today’s The Star-Ledger. I have found that my taste almost always coincides with Alan’s so I’m happy to hear he thinks the show’s “a definite for any summer TV To-Watch list.” [...]

Could Your Newest TV Obession Be In Plain Sight?

In Plain Sight premieres this Sunday, June 1, at 10/9c on USA and I am quite excited about it. God bless USA. Whenever my TV landscape is looking bare and bleak, they show up with a brand new show for me to love. And, yes, I love their “Characters Welcome” campaign because they truly focus [...]

‘Shippy Poll: Most Overrated Couple

This poll thing is kinda fun and, unfortunately for all of you, potentially endless. Already two topics for new polls have Just Jody and I arguing (in a good-natured “we both have different opinions about a scene in one of our favorite shows” kind of way, not a “I hate you, you’re wrong!” kind of [...]

Hope those of you in the United States are having a lovely Memorial Day weekend! I certainly am, even though I actually went into the office both yesterday and today. In fact, I kinda used the holiday as an excuse to blow off email and the Internet for the weekend. That part may have been [...]

Fickle or Faithful?

Something I’ve been pondering a lot recently in these new and different post-Writers-strike times, is what compels us to stick with a TV series?Why are we Fickle with some shows and Faithful to others? What makes us want to stick with a show that has disappointed us, while we quickly give up on another show [...]

TV Blog Coalition: May 16-18

BuzzSugar got the awesome opportunity to chat with the adorable Bret Harrison (a.k.a. Sam the bounty hunter for the Devil) about the future of Reaper. (BuzzSugar) Mikey is generally pleased (if slightly underwhelmed) with this year’s network upfront presentations. As for the social skills of the So You Think You Can Dance dancers, he’s just [...]

It’s been a couple weeks since our last poll so how about a new one, eh? Although, first, I have to thank everyone who voted in our last poll. Apparently ya’ll think John Krasinski looks best with his facial hair since he won with a whopping 69% of the votes. Who knew?! Ok, so this [...]

Let’s Talk TV: Monday Night Season Finales

Before I get into the season finales, I have just a few things to note: Thing #1: A podcast! Finally!! Ok, ok, so it’s not a podcast for RTVW (something I’ve wanted to do for awhile but have yet to find someone to do it with) but Ducky and GMMR were sweet enough to have [...]
