Friday Fun: All Dressed Up

Happy Halloween!! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Probably because I’m a kid at heart and love having an excuse to act like one. Ha. Anyway, in honor of the holiday, today’s Friday Fun centers around Halloween episodes of TV shows. More specifically, our favorite characters getting all dressed up for the festivities. I’ve got a [...]

Please Vote

Look, I like to keep politics out of this blog and that’s not going to change. But I do want to urge everyone in the United States to get out and vote this year. As some of my very favorite TV and movie stars point out in this video, every vote counts and what you [...]

Seven Rae Facts

Jace tagged me for the Seven Facts Meme last week. It’s been awhile since I’ve done this so I figured, why not! Although, the last time I did this I only had to come up with six facts. What’s up with increasing the number folks?! As much as I prefer odd numbers, now I’ve got [...]

No Time for TV Talk, Have Some Links Instead

Life is happening to me right now and interfering with my blogging. Or maybe it’s because I spend all my “blogging” time decorating my blog for the holidays. Whatever. Either way, all you’re getting out of me right now is a list… Kath beat me to sharing the happy news that Sonny Lee and Patrick [...]

Barney’s War on Marriage

I kinda loved last night’s Life even though I had trouble following a couple of things that happened at first. I did not, however, love last night’s The Ex List. Didn’t even really like it all that much. The thing about the show is that it’s a show I should be loving. The concept works [...]

Supernatural’s “Yellow Fever” Laughs? Infectious.

Reactions to last night’s Supernatural seem to be split. Some loved it, some hated it. Very few fell somewhere in the middle. I’m no exception. I’ve got my tent all set up in the “LOVED IT!” camp. A caveat, perhaps? I’m a huge fan of fear revealing episodes. I’m love Buffy’s “Fear, Itself” not just [...]

Friday Fun: This OR That

How about a little game today, eh? This game is called This OR That. And this is how it works… I name two items/things/people (don’t worry, examples are coming) and the next person to comments picks the one they prefer/like the most. Then that person has to name two more options and so on and [...]

Lightening My DVR’s Load

Remember my vow to give up (That Wretched BeastTM) One Tree Hill earlier this season? I’ve stuck to it and I’ve discovered something wonderful… I’m much happier when I’m not forcing myself to watch shows I only “sorta like.” That’s not, for the record, always an indication of the quality of the show. It’s an [...]

Thursday Thoughts: Chuck, Winning, & BFFs

Sorry for the disappearing act. I’ve been busy with a deadline at work and it’s been hard enough to watch my shows this week much less blog about them. Here’re some of the random thoughts rattling around in my head at this point… I love Chuck Bartowski. I think that’s become my mantra this season. [...]

Mode After Hours: “I don’t think that’s your mommy.”

Hahaha, this week’s Mode After Hours is great! Because I’ve had some complaints that the embedded ABC videos crash the site I’m hiding this week’s video behind the link below. Click to watch Marc and Amanda conduct a séance to contact Fey Sommers in an attempt to get answers about Amanda’s real father. You don’t [...]

What Do You Watch Online?

Do you realize how frustrating it is that you can find a directory of just about everything online from blogs to podcasts to books. Except web series. The very video content that is made for the web is harder to find on it than a traditional TV show. Since I’m starting to researching a little [...]
