Ways to While Away Your Wednesday

Welcome Back The WB: You only have to look as far as the TV DVDs on my shelf to see how much I adored The WB. That I still get embarassingly choked up when I watch those promotional videos they did every year? Yeah, well, that just proves I’m a sap on top of not [...]

TV Blog Coalition: Aug 22-24

The first truly beautiful day Orlando’s had in the past week and I’m stuck on my couch. About the only positive thing I can say about being sick is that it gives you a built in excuse for laying around watching TV all day. And maybe if I can stand to sit up for more [...]

7 Things Jostling Around in My Head

One Tree Spill: Is it possible to satisify your inner spoiler demon with spoilers about a show you don’t care about? I’m trying. As much as I have zero interest in the new season of One Tree Hill, I would like to see how they resolve their “cliffhanger” from last season. I’m not sure why [...]

I Don’t Like to Brag…

Oh, who am I kidding?! I totally love to brag, especially when it’s not about me! In this case it’s about my big sis or one of them at least. And since it involves an Army Wives sponsored contest, it even relates back to TV. Ha. Seriously, YourMilitaryBlog.com had a “Tell-Your-Own-Story” essay contest sponsoered by [...]

It’s been a long time since I’ve really talked about the TV I’m watching. Of course, that’s partly because I haven’t been watching much. You have no idea how much my DVR hates me right now.

What Could’ve Been: HEROES Season 2 Alternate Ending
