SDCC 2010 Photos: USA Network Panels

So, yeah, my SDCC write up may take longer than expected. Turns out I’ve got De Quervain’s tendonitis in my right hand. Fun stuff. You have no idea what a pain in the arse it is to type and work a mouse while wearing a thumb/wrist brace. More importantly, I’m not really supposed to be [...]

SDCC 2010 Photos: Caprica & Big Bang Theory Press Rooms

Oh, hey… Know what I forgot to mention anywhere online? I met James Marsters! SPIKE! Ok, well, met is a strong word. More like shared the same air as him for an hour when I acted as Amrie’s photographer in the Caprica press room. Still, a thrill for a Buffy fan like me. Anyway, here [...]

SDCC 2010 Photos: Supernatural Press Room

Hmmm, you know how every year I go to Comic-Con and I swear I’m going to be good and actually post during the Con? Yeah. Didn’t happen. Again. I’d say I’m sorry but it’d be a lie. I was having too much fun. It was either post Con reports or experience the Con. I went [...]

Stepping Into Syfy’s House of Imagination

While watching the Warehouse 13 second season premiere, I mentioned liking Syfy’s channel promo. I guess they actually call it a brand film, their House of Imagination. This one’s got talent from Syfy’s popular series Warehouse 13 (Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Allison Scagliotti); #Stargate Universe# (Brian J. Smith, Elyse Levesque, David Blue, Alaina [...]

Review: The Last Airbender

I’m easy. (Hey now!) Notoriously easy, in fact. I liked Transformers 2 for God’s sake! And you don’t have to search very hard to find out just how much I love Avatar: The Last Airbender. AND I’ve never gotten all the M. Night Shyamalan hate. If ever there was someone you’d expect to enjoy The [...]

A Covert Affairs Interrogation with Chris Gorham

Apologies for the delay in getting the rest of my Covert Affairs set visit transcripts posted, sometimes life cramps my online style. But I’m back! This time with the transcript from our chat with Chris Gorham. Chris is, without a doubt, one of the reasons I was interested in this show and this set visit. [...]

In Between Scenes with Covert Affairs’ Piper Perabo

As promised yesterday, here’s the transcript from our interview with Piper Perabo from the set of USA’s new show, Covert Affairs. We talk a lot about the show and, to some degree, the first episode but I don’t think any of is too spoilery (and you know me with the spoiler phobia). I don’t know [...]

Spying on USA’s Covert Affairs

A spy show with a female lead that kicks ass? It’s like USA decided it was time to make a show JUST FOR ME. Then I saw the promos and I was a little skeptical. I may love a lot of USA shows but I do not have a good track record with their other [...]

Summer in Miami: Watch Out, You Could Get Burned

Burn Notice returns tomorrow night (9PM on USA) and, reading other early reviews, it feels as though I’m one of the few people not completely in love with the premiere episode. Then again I’ve consistently been disappointed with how this show resolves its season ending cliffhangers. In this case the episode is juggling a lot [...]

LOST: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (Biscuits)

So how about that Lost finale, eh? I loved it. Unequivocally. I laughed. I cried—Oh how I cried. I didn’t get answers to many of the questions I’ve asked throughout the years but then the genius of this finale (and this final season?) was that it convinced me those answers weren’t important. Quite frankly, rarely [...]

Holy DVD Prettiness, Aang!

GAH! This is pretty. I don’t need it. I have all three books on DVD already and yet… I may not be able to resist buying it. Ingore my drooling and take a look: I already knew about it (Jody keeps me up-to-date on everything TV on DVD related!) but couldn’t resist posting the picture [...]

Overdue Updates, Cheers, Previews, & Goodbyes

Upfronts Week 2010 Remember the days when I obsessed over Upfronts Week? Yeah, so do I. I’m glad that’s over. Though I do miss how excited I’d get at the prospect of new shows and prospective new favorites. It feels strange not care at all about what’s being picked up and what’s not. Which is [...]

Glee 1×15: What Would Madonna Do

The girls of New Directions perform in “The Power of Madonna” episode of Glee on FOX. © 2010 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Michael Yarish/FOX I like Madonna’s earlier stuff a lot more than her later stuff. Is that unusual? Perhaps that’s why I didn’t love last night’s Glee as much as so many others did. [...]

Serenading A Robot Skeleton Sidekick

Yep. Still love Craig Ferguson. The opening for last night’s show in which his new robot skeleton sidekick, Geoff Peterson, was revealed was great. Check it out: Look out, there’s a monster coming…

Video of the Day: TV Theme Medley

Found this fun video via The Daily What and I can’t stop watching. It reminds me of the CD Jody made me of a ton of TV theme songs. I also listen to that non-stop. I may have a problem…

Is My Cathode Ray Tube Dying?

In a long ago email from Jody, she said, “Perhaps you need to post an announcement that the whore is changing her style… no more sleeping with anything that has a commercial break, now you’re just going to sleep with a few shows… a lot. More like selective slutiness.” Man, is she right. I’m just [...]

Greek 3×17 & 3×18: Mardi Gras & 80s Movies

Originally this was part of a different post but it’s one of the few shows that I actually want to talk about these days. I figured that means it deserves a post of its own. But I took so long to write the first part, I now have to add thoughts about this week’s episode [...]

Psych 4×16: How Hitchcockian of You

Loved it. I know P-C doesn’t agree and that’s cool, plenty of room for dissenting opinions around here. But I seriously watched that last few minutes at least 10 times last night. And have been obsessively listening to that Band of Horses song all day. I guess I’m just a sucker for a well done [...]
