Hang Your Christmas Pumpkins & Pre-Order Your Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog DVD

Before you even say it, I know, I know… I’ve been horribly neglecting Friday Fun this month. And I even had it on my “To Do” list all week in hopes that I’d have it prepared early. HA. December is just days away and I promise I’ll get a Friday Fun up EVERY Friday next [...]

Here’s Hoping You Didn’t Get Any Chumash Diseases

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a great day, even if you weren’t one of us celebrating Thanksgiving. And, hey, I have leftover chocolate cream pie at my place… first come, first serve!

A Bunch of Turkeys on Top Chef Tonight

First things first, Amrie and I are such masters at being brief with our thoughts that we totally could have kept our TVx3 Reality Break to 90 seconds this week, but we just knew that all of you would prefer the 17 minute version instead… Or something like that. Yes, Amrie and I did a [...]

A Very Colbert-y Christmas (Special) To You!

Despite my very good intentions to go to bed early last night, I staying up for A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All! It wasn’t nearly as funny as I’d hoped but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. My biggest complaint, by far, was the freaking laugh track. As I understand it, [...]

Smiley Faces on the Wall

Thoughts on Grey’s Anatomy, 5×09: “In the Midnight Hour” At what point did Lexie Grey become my favorite character on Grey’s Anatomy and how did that happen? Here’s the thing, I don’t hate the Denny storyline as much as everyone else. I attribute that to not having seen almost any of the first season and [...]

TV Flashback: That’s kind of a thing with you, huh?

Pardon this trip down memory lane. Every once in awhile I get lost in the memory of my favorite shows of TV past. This time I’m blaming it on Spads. She used an icon from this scene the other day and I had to go watch it. Veronica confronting Duncan about the night at the [...]

Helllloooo Nurse!

Know what I miss? Besides having time to watch TV and blog about it? (Clearly I’m on some kind of weird November hiatus here. Too bad it’s not because I’m too busy watching the sweeps episodes to blog about them.) No, no, what I really miss are the Animaniacs. Oh, shows of my childhood, how [...]

New Chuck Tonight & Beyonce At Burger King Earworm

NBC is bumming me out with the lack of new Chuck webisodes. Though I guess I shouldn’t complain too much since I did get screeners for the three November sweeps episodes of the show. And, before you get too jealous, just remember the double-edged sword of screeners… now I have to wait even longer for [...]

Your Daily Dose of Kaitlin Olson

My TV viewing (and blogging) is way off this week. As if I had to tell you that. Then, last night, my cable was acting up and I could barely make out every third word on the shows I tried to watch. Fun times. Needless to say, I have not seen last night’s It’s Always [...]

Friday Fun: Title Match

Driving to work this morning, I heard one of my favorite TV Theme Songs on the radio, and was struck by what a bizarre title it had. As a girl who has a serious infatuation with music on TV, this got me to wondering how many of our beloved TV theme songs we would recognize [...]
