She says casual fans and people who’ve never seen it before but who like to laugh will not be disappointed. You might even get hooked and [...]

Reruns got you down? Rub DIRT in your wounds.

I’ve seen the tonight’s episode of DIRT (FX, 10PM) and I fully recommend it to anyone who’s never seen the show before and everyone who tried it last year but gave it up. The writers managed to fix everything that didn’t work in the first season in the first 20 minutes of season two. Because [...]

Watch “America’s Best Dance Crew”

I don’t usually watch shows like America’s Best Dance Crew. So You Think You Can Dance is something I would usually rather YouTube than sit through. Last week actually, as I was watching clips from the audition show in order to prepare to cover the taping of the live premiere, I still wasn’t convinced that [...]

TV: Why I Watch

Rae’s talked about it, so hopefully you guys have checked out the amazing “Why We Write” site. At one point some writers were talking about starting a “Why We Watch” companion blog and one of them asked me to jot something down for it. Since it’s not looking like the project is going to happen, [...]

Hanging with the cast of NBC’s Chuck: Part Three

As you probably gleaned from reading parts one and two of this recap, the three lead actors on the series Chuck really do like each other. When Zac Levi, Adam Baldwin, and Yvonne Strahovsky are in the same room together there is a light and jokey atmosphere, like kids on a playground or cousins hanging [...]

Hanging out with the cast of NBC’s Chuck: Part Two

Warner Brothers kindly invited The TV Whore to a promotional shoot for Chuck this past weekend. Since I am her eyes and ears here in Los Angeles, she invited me and I got to spend my Sunday with Zachary Levi (Chuck), Adam Baldwin (Casey), and Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah).

Who in the heck is Zac Levi and why should I care?

The best way to get a sense of who Zachary Levi is—barring meeting the man in person—is to watch the TV series he stars in on NBC: Chuck. The character and the actor share a sweet innocence, a sense of humor, and a giant heart. Not to mention a winning smile and a deep love [...]

A Trip to the Doctor’s Office

I had my first red carpet experience last night! Granted, it wasn’t the Golden Globes or anything, it was a press event for one TV show, but US Weekly and Entertainment Tonight were right there next to me, yelling to the stars of Nip/Tuck (“Julian, over here!” “Dylan, give us some eye contact!”) so it [...]

Don’t Fear the Pilot: Spadada’s Fall 2007 Top 5 Picks

I don’t trust awesome pilots. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip let me down in a big way last year. So I am afraid of how much I loved Pushing Daisies. I really want the rest of the season to be at least as good as the first episode. But the first episode was a [...]
