Slow TV Week = Slow TV Blog Week

I can’t believe it’s Wednesday and I’ve yet to make a real post about TV this week. I can only blame it on the overall lack of new TV. Here’s a quick rundown, spoiler free, of what I’ve watched recently and my feelings about each. Psych: Some funny stuff in this episode back but it [...]

“I do know the ending of the story, yes.” – Kim Manners

The quote in the subject line is from when I met Kim Manners two years ago on the set of Supernatural. During that visit I also got to watch as he directed a scene. It was the highlight of my trip. I was grateful to have been given the opportunity at the time but even [...]

New Episode of PG-PORN Equals More Laughs

It’s Monday and, if you’re anything like me, you’ve hit that point in the morning where you could use a laugh. If so, you should check out the newest episode of James Gunn’s PG-PORN, “Roadside ASS-istance.” It stars Sasha Grey and James himself and, I can not lie, I literally laughed out loud while watching [...]

Early Look: The Closer & Trust Me

Tomorrow night sees the return of The Closer and premiere of Trust Me on TNT. I got an early look at the first few episodes of both and I liked what I saw so I wanted to be sure and give some very non-spoilerly opinions of both. I know you Closer fans want to know [...]

She Said, She Said: We’re So Lost, 5×01 & 5×02

Let’s be honest, it’s more fun to talk about Lost with someone else. Which is why we’ve pulled our She Said, She Said feature back out to talk about our favorite island. Check out what Jody and I had to say about “Because You Left” (5×01) and “The Lie” (5×02) and join in the discussion [...]

ABDC S3, Ep 2: Was Your Favorite Crew Fit Enough?

I didn’t talk about the premiere of America’s Best Dance Crew last week so this week it gets an entire post devoted to it. I honestly can’t tell you why I love this show as much as I do and yet steer clear of so many other dance shows. Except, maybe, that I like the [...]

Thoughts on Fringe 1×11, “Bound”

Fringetastic! Ok, that’s definitely overstating matters a bit, but I’m tired of people ragging on this show. You know what, if you’ve given up on it? Then give up already and move along. Geez. I’m not saying the show is great. In fact, in accordance with a goal to drop shows that I’m no longer [...]

TV Update: Shows I’m Not Loving & Some I Am

I’ve found myself being pretty hard on TV lately. For instance, I’ve completely let go for Brothers & Sisters. Deleted my series recording and everything! Ditto for Desperate Housewives. I did tape last night’s DH because the promos looked intriguing. Then people were complimentary on Twitter and I thought, what the heck, I’m going to [...]
