TV Advent 2008: Day 4, It’s Always Merry in Philadelphia

How exactly would Mac, Charlie, Dee, and Dennis get out of buying each other gifts at Christmas? Because you know they’re all too concerned about they want to shop for someone else. Sadly, the gang have left us for the season, so I had to find another way to keep them around for the holidays. [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 3, Holiday Work Wheel

The holidays are here and they’ve brought a lot of work with them. There’s the decorating and the baking and the gift buying and the card signing and the carol singing. Who can do it all alone?! Which is why I decided to write up instructions for creating a Holiday Work Wheel modeled after Seth [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 2, Holidays in Space

In honor of its 30th anniversary, I thought we should take a trip back in time to 1978 when the Star Wars holiday special aired. Man, I’m just all about the holiday specials this year, aren’t I? I must admit, I’ve never actually seen this holiday special… which probably makes the fact that I know [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 1, Please Be Patient

Today’s advent item comes to us courtesy of A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All. Feist guest stars as the angel juggling Stephen’s call. I went with this as our first item because the chorus to this song is what I imagine we all have to remind ourselves at this time of year. None [...]

post thumbnail is Giving Us a Week of Thanksgiving

I love holiday programming and I don’t just mean holiday specials. I love it when TV shows do holiday specific episodes. And I love that continues to offer holiday themed programming for TV lovers just like me. This week they’re all decked out in Fall colors and they’ve got a buffet full of Thanksgiving [...]

Gifts for the TV Whore: The Write Environment DVD Series

Where the heck did 2008 go?! Christmas is a mere five weeks away and, sure, that seems like long enough right now but I guarantee you it’ll be over in the blink of an eye. And so I present an excellent gift suggestion for the TV whore (addict? lover? whatever name you’re going with) in [...]

I Tawt I Taw a TV Tweet

I’m sure it will surprise none of you to hear the majority of the people I follow on Twitter share my obsession with television. They’re either fellow fans or bloggers or they’re folks who actually work in the biz. Either way, there’s a whole lot of TV tweeting going on on my Twitter list and [...]

Seven Rae Facts

Jace tagged me for the Seven Facts Meme last week. It’s been awhile since I’ve done this so I figured, why not! Although, the last time I did this I only had to come up with six facts. What’s up with increasing the number folks?! As much as I prefer odd numbers, now I’ve got [...]

Friday Fun: This OR That

How about a little game today, eh? This game is called This OR That. And this is how it works… I name two items/things/people (don’t worry, examples are coming) and the next person to comments picks the one they prefer/like the most. Then that person has to name two more options and so on and [...]

Friday Fun: Google Ex Smackdown

In honor of iGoogle’s new interface I present Google Ex Smackdown, as seen on The Ext List. Now, if you were like me and gave up on The Ex List after the pilot, you missed this fun game the group played last week while Bella was out dating one of her Mr. Wrong’s who was [...]

Friday Fun: TV Trios, Round 2 – Character Traits

Sorry about last week’s Friday Fun hiatus. Sometimes life sneaks up on you me and interferes with even the best-laid plans. But I missed the fun last week so I’m not letting today go by without our weekly does. Time for some Friday Fun! It’s been awhile since we did our first round of TV [...]

Around the Web in 8 Bullets

Boredom break! How about some links that have been keeping me entertained lately, eh? Pay the links forward, people. Amrie, from My Take on TV, recently spoke to Lee Pace about Pushing Daisies. I’m only forgiving her for it because it was her birthday. He’s been doing it for awhile now but I find Jace’s [...]

Friday Fun: That’s A Cap!

I know, I know, we just played this game a couple of Fridays ago! However, things are a bit on the hectic side at the moment (why else wouldn’t I have rushed to share with you my laughter and tears from last night’s Thursday TV?!) so I went for something I already had mostly prepared. [...]

Friday Fun: Name That Theme, Child of the ’80s Style

Working with others on a theme song for a not-so-secret project (that you’ll hear more about very very soon), I have managed to get several of the older TV theme songs stuck in my head throughout the week. So we’re going back to a game we played earlier in the summer, Name That Theme, only [...]

In My Outbox: RE: BURN NOTICE Scooting Tonight

Dear Michael, Please don’t scoot. A little birdie just reminded me that you’ll be dropping off the grid for several months after tonight’s Burn Notice finale (10PM on USA). Is that really necessary? Sure, Thursday nights are about to get real crowded and you’ve never been a fan of group gatherings, but I feel like [...]

ONN Brings Us the Latest Genetically Engineered Child Stars

Disney Lab Unveils Its Latest Line Of Genetically Engineered Child Stars Ahhh, so funny. I literally laughed out loud at the “Future Models May Be Capable Of Nuance, Subtlety” headline and at Dr. Roark’s disappointment with the Zac Efron model, “Actually, I think we could have done a better job with Zac. He could show [...]

As we’re all scrambling to get our DVR’s programmed and our schedules worked out, we thought we’d scramble things up a little more for you today.
