ONN Brings Us the Latest Genetically Engineered Child Stars

Disney Lab Unveils Its Latest Line Of Genetically Engineered Child Stars Ahhh, so funny. I literally laughed out loud at the “Future Models May Be Capable Of Nuance, Subtlety” headline and at Dr. Roark’s disappointment with the Zac Efron model, “Actually, I think we could have done a better job with Zac. He could show [...]

On the FRINGE: The Same Old Story (1×02)

I liked it. Didn’t love it, wasn’t as into as I was the pilot, but I liked it enough that all the griping elsewhere is annoying me. Don’t get me wrong. Everyone has a right to like or dislike any thing but, when you like it and are still hopeful that it could grow into [...]

Smitten with SUPERNATURAL

Supernatural Returns, Thursday, September 18th @ 9PM on the CW A week ago I was pouting because Dan had gotten the press kit for season four of Supernatural and I had not. I don’t get nearly the amount of screeners and press that my fellow bloggers do and, generally, it doesn’t bother me. Mostly because [...]

Season 4 WEEDS Not Worth the Trip

Last week I spent two days at a blogging-centric event, Izeafest. For the most part, I enjoyed it and feel like it was worth the money I spent to do it. However, the best part of the two days was finally finding few people who agree with me about this season of Weeds. As is [...]

Premiere Spotlight: House, Lincoln Heights, & Biggest Loser Families

     House @ 8PM (FOX) I catch a lot of reruns of House but it’s never been on my regular schedule. That said, I enjoy it and I want to see the fallout from last season’s finale which is exactly why I will be watching as it returns tonight. I hear these first two episodes [...]

TV Blog Coalition: Sept 12-14

G’morning, TV lovers. I attended a blogging centric conference this past weekend and it really struck a chord. However, it also means I was kind of out of it for three days. Two because I was at the conference itself and one because I was trying to fit a weekend’s worth of chores into one [...]

As we’re all scrambling to get our DVR’s programmed and our schedules worked out, we thought we’d scramble things up a little more for you today. Hopefully you’ve been paying attention to all the new & returning shows because that will [...]

Top 5 Veronica Mars Moments

A million years ago, or so it seems, I did a Top 5 meme and Roz requested my Top 5 Veronica Mars moments. And I swear to you that I’ve been meaning to get to her request ever since… have, in fact, had a Top VM Moments folder sitting on my desktop since that day. [...]

Snakes, Sharks, & Terrorism

Aww, you guys, I’m totally in love with my Tuesday Night TV right now!! If Chuck were on this night (though I’m glad it’s not), this would be my favorite night of the week. Awww. I remember when Tuesday really was that night for me… sorry, got caught up in a Veronica Mars flashback there [...]

Premiere Spotlight: ‘Til Death & Do Not Disturb

This will be the last spotlight for the week as I’m limiting myself to only a select few reality premieres and I’ll be at a two-day conference as of Friday morning. That said, head’s up to those who are interested in Hole in the Wall (Fox), Kitchen Nightmares (Fox), Don’t Forget the Lyrics! (Fox), Mad [...]

Fire Alarms, Drugs, & Theives

Monday night is filling up fast. I have no idea how I’m going to keep up with it in a few weeks when all of my shows are back with new episodes. It’s hard enough juggling the four I did watch! Of course, I do plan to give up One Tree Hill as soon as [...]

Weekend Warriors

Ok, this is a day late and now I’ve got even more shows to talk about but I’m splitting them up… mostly because I tend to ramble on about shows I love (Psych) and I don’t want the post to get too long. So up first are my reactions to Friday’s episode of Pscyh, the [...]

Premiere Spotlight: Fringe & Privileged

Yay! I’ve been looking forward to this night all summer. If I haven’t really been all that excited about the new season, I have been excited about the two new shows premiering tonight. In fact, they’re pretty much the only new shows that’ve piqued my interest (excluding Joss’ Dollhouse, of course, since that’s a mid-season [...]

Book Giveaway: Privileged & Gossip Girl Series

I’m well past my school age years but, if I were back in class this week and asked to write an essay on what I did this summer, it’d be all about the insane amount of books I consumed. Which is exactly why I was so delighted when the folks over at Hachette Book Group [...]

Premiere Spotlight: Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

Ahhh, the craziness of Monday begins. Enjoy having just a few shows overlapping on Mondays while you can because, in another month, you’ll need two DVRs working full-time to watch it all. Tonight FOX adds another show to the crowded 8PM timeslot…      Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles @ 8PM (FOX) They’re back! Hmm, I [...]

(Daemon’s TV) With everyone complaining about how terrible the new 90210 is, Marcia made the point that the old one was pretty damn awful [...]

Premiere Spotlight: True Blood & Entourage

Look, it’s HBO Sunday! Well not quite, Fox is also previewing their remake of the Japanese gameshow Hole in the Wall tonight at 8PM. I’m just not so sure I can get into a show about, well, people trying to fit through a hole in the wall for money. It does look amusing but it’s [...]

SAMURAI GIRL Inspires My Inner Doodler

It’s time I come clean. I like shows about girls that kick ass. Shocking, I know. I can hardly believe it myself. These dirty little secrets just keep coming out… HA. Seriously, though, I was predisposed to like ABC Family’s new mini-series Samurai Girl as soon as I saw those posters of Jamie Chung brandishing [...]
