Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Watch “Parks and Rec” Tonight

My formerly former LA contributor, Spadada, watched the “Parks and Recreation” finale with the cast and producers last night and she asked me to tell you to please watch. 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 [...]

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…

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 [...]

A Little Brisco in the Mornings

Just decided I’m gonna do a Brisco County, Jr. re-watch in the mornings starting this week. (Replacing Angel, which has moved into the section of season two I dislike, as the background show for my morning routine.) PS: Is that Luke’s? It is, isn’t it?

Lost 6×01&02: “I’m seeing it but I’m still not believing it.”

I really enjoyed it but I must admit my only expectation going into this season is to sit back and enjoy the ride. I have no burning questions I want answered. I have no couples I particularly care about ending up together. I have no characters that I want to “make it” no matter what. [...]

Chuck 3×01 & 3×02: “Welcome to your new mission!”

Let’s ramble on way too long chat about last night’s brand new episodes of Chuck, shall we? I quite enjoyed them but then I would, wouldn’t I? I mean, I’m a big fan of the show and even when I have issues with it I enjoy it more than most of the other TV I [...]

Review: Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Companion

Battlestar Galactica: The Official Season 4 Companion by Sharon Gosling It’s been a looong 8 months since we last saw the crew of Battlestar Galactica, and there’s still another 2 months until Caprica arrives to save us from a world without Cylons or Adama’s. If you’re like me, you’ve been missing the drama, intrigue and [...]

Supernatural 5×10: “Let’s all go back to simpler, better times.”

 Oh, show. We’re having words right now and they’re not pleasant ones. Some serious stuff went down in this episode and, if you know me, you know I had a strong reaction to it.

TV Hodge Podge

Oh, blog, I miss when we used to be fast friends and I’d run to you every time something TV-related made pump my fist in the air. What happened to that? I kid but it does sadden me that I can’t seem to find the blogging spark I had in the past. (Does Best Buy [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
