The Homes Premieres on

The Homes, 01 – The Light Song: A homesick Annie (Chelsea Kane) finds hope when she meets the garage band next door. John’s new series premiered on last night and, Chelsea’s fake crying aside, I really really like it. It may be that I was an Army brat and I know what it’s like [...]

Outsourced: New Time, Time to Check It Out!

What you are about to read is, as far as I can tell, very rare on the Internet: a positive blog post about Outsourced, NBC‘s new comedy set in a Mumbai call center for novelty items, which returns tonight at 10:30 PM. The show, based on a critically acclaimed film from 2006, focuses on Todd [...]

To Watch or Not To Watch

How about a quick TV schedule update? There are still a few shows returning/starting this week but the only one I plan to watch is No Ordinary Family and I saw a screener of that pilot during the summer. So here’s a look at the shows that made it onto my tentative schedule and which [...]

Back Tonight: Friday Bromances

The Good Guys, FOX @ 9 PM – I love this show. It started at the beginning of the summer so it probably doesn’t qualify as a new show anymore and, yet, it’s still my favorite new show of the Fall. Which is why I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed that it’ll experience [...]

Back Tonight: Thursday Traffic Jams

Big Bang Theory, CBS @ 8 PM – Last season wasn’t my favorite but the gang’s appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson reminded me how much fun this cast can be. So I’m happy to have the show back and eager to see where they take the show this year. (And, you [...]

Back Tonight: Wednesday With The Family

Modern Family, ABC @ 9 PM – My favorite show of last season returns! Love this cast, love these characters. Can’t wait to see what shenanigans they’re up to now! Is this even worth a post?! My Wednesdays are ridiculously light. Which, frankly, I love. What’s New? Undercovers, NBC @ 8 PM – More like [...]

Back Tonight: Musical Tuesday

Glee, FOX @ 8 PM – I’m super happy to have this show back at 8PM. And, well, to have it back. I have my issues with the writing and storylines but enjoy the hell out of the singing and dancing. I suspect it will always be a little of a love/hate relationship for me. [...]

Back Tonight: Monday Faves

Chuck, NBC @ 8 PM – I might not have loved last season but this show is still one of my favorite shows. When it’s on, having a new episode to watch is my reward for making through yet another Monday. Beyond the few things I found out at Comic-Con, I am as unspoiled as [...]

Gut Reaction: Psych 5×09, “One, Maybe Two, Ways Out”

You guys, thank god for Psych. I miss the days of being so excited about something in an episode of TV that I just had to share it. Even when I didn’t love, love, love the episode itself. Because that’s how I feel about the last scene in last night’s Psych. The episode itself wasn’t [...]

TV DVD Review: Chuck S3 Blu-ray

New on DVD this week? The complete third season of Chuck! Even though I didn’t love season three as much as one or two, I still enjoyed way more than season six of The Office and season five of Supernatural. Why must studios make everything a competition? I buy more TV on DVD than your [...]

Premiering Tonight: Terriers on FX

There’s a lot of praise out there for FX’s newest series making its bow tonight, Terriers. I’m not nearly as wowed by it. I think it is a solid show and, if you connect with these characters, you’re going to love it. But it took until episodes 4 and 5 before I wanted more. (Not [...]

Psych Set Visit Gushing & S4 DVD Giveaway

A month ago today I was making the long, long trek to Vancouver. My bank account wasn’t very happy with me but I wasn’t passing up the opportunity for a second visit to the set of Psych. In case you doubted just how much I love the show and the people who make it happen. [...]

Foodie Steve Franks

You guys. You have no idea how much I love Steve Franks. I’m headed to the Psych set next week* and I’m kinda secretly hoping he’ll be there. That’s probably not going to happen. Luckily his first Food Vlog has gone live so I can console myself by watching it for the hundredth time and [...]

The Big C is Coming

Others have been anxiously awaiting The Big C forever (and ever). I could almost say the opposite. Well, it’s not like I didn’t want it made; I’ve just had zero interest in seeing it. It doesn’t help that I got rid of Showtime when I moved in March and therefore cannot be tempted by their [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
