Monday Night: You deserve a triumphant night full of TV.

Ahhh, I wasted most of my Monday night TV energy on my Chuck post but I’d be remiss if I didn’t also talk a bit about the other shows I watched last night. Like the brand new episode of Life that I thoroughly enjoyed. I fell for Charlie Crews last season and my crush on [...]

Chuck 2×01: Operation Bartowski

You guys, Chuck Bartowski is back in da house!!! (It’s funnier if you imagine me going all gangsta on ya, throwing up some signs, as I say that.) Good Lord, I love me some Chuck. And it has nothing to do with my crush on Chris Fedak… ok, maybe a little bit to do with [...]

TVx3 Episode 2: Old Faces, New Places

Another week, another podcast episode! This time I think the audio is 1000x better. Still not perfect but I’m getting better. Sadly, not as many fun commercials this week because I was too busy to organize those. Some day soon I will have a routine down and it’ll go smoothly… right? Anyway, you don’t care [...]

Racing & Time Jumps Trump Family Drama

I’m super excited about tonight’s TV. Not the ridiculousness that is three new shows in practically every time-slot. It’s just not possible to watch that much TV in one night. Especially when you have lots of crap to get done. BUT! I feel like I’ve been waiting years for Chuck to return and he’s finally [...]

Mode After Hours: “Nobody even watches those Internet clips.”

I need to be going after some food but instead I’m wasting precious minutes of my lunch hour searching for some photos for a post containing my thoughts on last night’s TV. When what do my wandering eyes behold but the Mode After Hours Vlog starring Marc and Amanda. Genius! Kudos to ABC and the [...]

TV Blog Coalition: Sept 26-28

One of the things I love about the new TV season is the variety of posts it brings to all of my favorite TV blogs. Gone are the days when there are only one or two shows that everyone buzzing. Don’t believe me? Check out the mix of TV Blog Coalition topics this week. After [...]

Friday Fun: That’s A Cap!

I know, I know, we just played this game a couple of Fridays ago! However, things are a bit on the hectic side at the moment (why else wouldn’t I have rushed to share with you my laughter and tears from last night’s Thursday TV?!) so I went for something I already had mostly prepared. [...]

Hey, Happy Birthday!

Pardon this little diversion from TV posting but my best TV bud is having a birthday today and that deserves some celebration. Especially since Just Jody is totally my sounding board for just about everything about this site. I don’t know what I’d do without her. Jo, I hope you’re having a wonderful non-Buffy-like birthday. [...]

Yet Another TV Podcast

You guys! Have I mentioned that I love Privileged? Because I totally do. It’s got some rocky points but, damn, if I don’t care. It’s easily my new favorite show of the season so far. Fringe is taking a trailing second though I do still like everything that show promises to be so I won’t [...]

Putting Together a 2008 Fall TV Schedule

Hello, act, nice to see you together again. A few weeks ago, I just wasn’t that into new TV. Clearly I’d forgotten just how much of a TV whore I am because the slightest taste of new shows and I’m back on the bandwagon! Several of my favorites returned last night and it’s amazing how [...]

And We’re Off!

Hold onto your remotes, my lovelies, things are about to get real bumpy for our DVRs and our sanity. I’m not sure when Monday became the new Thursday but, no use fighting it, just have to set things to record and hope we all make it to the other side. Ok, enough of that. Seriously, [...]

T-Shirts That Get People Talking

I suppose I should be talking about the Emmys tomorrow but I can’t muster the energy to give a damn about an awards ceremony I won’t watch. If you really wanna discuss the nominees and who you think’ll win, head on over to theTVaddict.com and post away. Me? I feel like gazing at some navel [...]

Friday Fun: Name That Theme, Child of the ’80s Style

Working with others on a theme song for a not-so-secret project (that you’ll hear more about very very soon), I have managed to get several of the older TV theme songs stuck in my head throughout the week. So we’re going back to a game we played earlier in the summer, Name That Theme, only [...]

Thursday Night TV: Looks, Brains, Wildcard

Look, I haven’t done this in a long time but I loved tonight’s TV so much that I am indulging my inner fangirl and posting my immediate knee-jerk reactions to tonight’s Supernatural, Burn Notice, and It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia. So. Fucking. Awesome. I need better adjectives but my brains are all over my living [...]

In My Outbox: RE: BURN NOTICE Scooting Tonight

Dear Michael, Please don’t scoot. A little birdie just reminded me that you’ll be dropping off the grid for several months after tonight’s Burn Notice finale (10PM on USA). Is that really necessary? Sure, Thursday nights are about to get real crowded and you’ve never been a fan of group gatherings, but I feel like [...]

Watch NBC Premieres A Week Early

I wasn’t going to post about the news that NBC is offering an early sneak peek at their various premieres online and through various other outlets but then eolivet asked about the actual dates things would be available and I figured it’d be good to gather that information in one place. You can bet your [...]

Premiere Spotlight: Smallville, Supernatural, & It’s Always Sunny

It’s a good day. Two of my favorite shows return tonight, both in their fourth season, and I’m happy I get to enjoy them without the stress that is next week’s Thursday lineup. I hope y’all brushed up on your juggling skills because you’ll need ‘em with all the shows returning next week. But tonight… [...]
