Flash Forward 1×01-5: “What did you see?”

Flash Forward, I want to like you. It’s important that you know that. Because tonight may be the night. If you don’t give me a real reason to stick around tonight, it may be time to relegate you to online viewing only. Sometimes that works out for a show. Right, Grey’s? Sometimes? Well, poor Fringe [...]

Eastwick Thoughts: “Does that same logic apply to you?”

The sixth episode of Eastwick airs tonight and I’ve yet to talk about the show. A shame, really, as I do like it. Yep, you read right, I like Eastwick. No one else seems to be talking about it so I have no idea if I’m alone in feeling that way. Certainly the lack of [...]

Greek 3×09: Interstate Booty Call

Thanks to ABC Family, I was able to see this episode early. The downside? I have had to wait what feels like FOREVER to talk about it! And you know we are going to talk about it. How could we not?! I literally watched those last five minutes of the episode over and over and [...]

Top 5 Halloween Costumes on TV

I love me a holiday episode. I probably love the holiday episodes more than the actual holidays themselves. And since Halloween is my favorite of all the holidays, what other Top 5 could there be for the week of Halloween? Top 5 Halloween Costumes on TV Castle as Captain Mal (aka a Space Cowboy) – [...]

Join John Cabrera’s SYTYCD-FDL

I don’t talk about So You Think You Can Dance a lot here. Honestly, I don’t feel qualified to talk about it. Ridiculous I know since that certainly doesn’t stop me from sharing my opinions on America’s Best Dance Crew. Still, I listen to people who have actual dance training talk about the show (looking [...]

Forget Chuck Not: Check Out Chuck Campaign

One of the few fan campaigns I’ve loved and actually participated in was the effort to get Veronica Mars DVDs in libraries across the nation. Which is exactly why I am 100% behind the new Check Out Chuck campaign put together by the ladies over at ChuckTV.net. I love the idea of getting Chuck into [...]

White Collar: An Early Look at USA’s Newest Show

Alright, I might be obsessed. I have watched the White Collar pilot way too many times. How is it possible to fall in love with a show before it even airs? My biggest fear is the rest of the episodes won’t live up to my already impossibly high expectations. It’s probably obvious but the last [...]

Top 5 Questions I’d Like to Ask Glee

While I love Glee like I love my boyfriend, that doesn’t mean I am all forgiving (just ask my boyfriend!) and willing to let anything go by without question. So here are the Top 5 Things I’d like to ask the powers that be at Glee. 1. Why do those cheerleaders not have other clothes? [...]

Forget Chuck Not vs. The Episode Description

I’ve always been a fan of shows that stick to one naming schema. Hence one of the many (many!) things I love about this show are the “Chuck vs. _________” episode titles. And that’s why we’re going to play a little guessing game with them. Which works out nicely since this series is all about [...]

Friday Fun: Let’s Talk Recorder Backlog

Aaah!  We’re over a month into the Fall TV season, and even after weeding out a bunch of shows, there’s still too much TV and not enough time to watch it all in! Between the day job, and pesky things like eating, sleeping and housework, my PVR runneth over! And I know I can’t be [...]

Greek 3×07: “Have fun and good luck with your… crazy.”

I loved last night’s Greek. So much in fact that, even though I had watched my screener of it twice earlier in the day, I still sat down and watched it live last night. It wasn’t a perfect hour, Rusty’s foot-in-mouth storyline was pretty lame. We all knew he was going to realize he was [...]

Tuesday TV Top 5’s

It’s been a looong time since we did a Top 5 here at RTVW, but with Fall TV in full swing, it seems like a good time to start them back up! And since we’re all enjoying the return of new TV, what better way to start off than with my Top 5 NEW Shows? [...]

Forget Chuck Not: Chuck News & Decorations

Ack! Hurrying to get this one up before the end of the day. So I apologize in advance for the suckiness of this particular Forget Chuck Not post. Life got in the way of my usual post prep. Damn you, Life.  So, my fellow Chuckies (ok, that doesn’t sound right — Chuckites? Buy Morians? Whatever!), [...]

The Office: Waiting For His Wife

You guys. I can not stop re-watching the wedding scene from last night’s The Office episode. It’s like a sickness. A sickness that makes me all squishy inside and never fails to leave me with tears streaming down my face. It was, without a doubt, one of the best executed TV weddings I’ve seen. The [...]

Friday Fun: Love It / Loathe It / Looking Again

It’s been a little while since we’ve had any Friday Fun around here, but this being a Friday before a long weekend (in Canada) has me wanting to play instead of work! So, in honour of the Fall 2009 TV season being one-month-old today, let’s talk about the new shows we’re watching. Today’s game is [...]

Forget Chuck Not: Going Undercover in the ‘Burbs

My original intent was to come up with a list of my favorite undercover roles we’ve seen on Chuck, an idea Kath from GMMR liked. But, uh, my list quickly got out of control. I may like this show a bit too much. Instead I’m going to split my list into multiple posts. “You two [...]
