Band of Brothers 2… HBO’s The Pacific

Watch the trailer for the upcoming HBO mini-series The Pacific, presented by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. The series, which debuts in 2010, takes a look at the Pacific part of World War II much like Band of Brothers did to the European piece. Hopefully you figured that out on your own. The Pacific looks […]

To Celebrity Apprentice: Bring Back The Apprentice

Celebrity Apprentice is a fun show, full of screaming celebrities and other shenanigans and Donald Trump. Many of the celebrities take the show seriously, or at least somewhat seriously, but some don’t… and that’s why I miss the original Apprentice, where real business people competed for a real job. After watching the season finale, I […]

American Idol Hype Machine Fails, Thank God

American Idol‘s finalists have been determined, and the early favorite to win is not among them. Of course, the guy was never a favorite of mine. Danny Gokey will go no further than third place in the popular Fox show, and its good riddance to a man who road the coattails of his wife’s death […]

DVD Review: Caprica Pilot Episode

Battlestar Galactica is done, but Caprica is just beginning. Sci-Fi Channel hopes fans acknowledge that transition and stick around because one is just like the other, right? Oh, and for the fact that the channel doesn’t have much else to offer. Caprica is set 50 years before BSG on Caprica, which in only a few […]

Parks and Recreation Bringing Down The Office

Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreation debuted on NBC between two episodes of The Office last week, and had its second episode last night. The comedy runs in the vein of The Office, in that it’s about a manager who is so not-self-aware in regards to her job that she doesn’t realize how idiotic and stupid […]

Has Heroes Found Salvation?

Back in December, we reported that Bryan Fuller was returning to Heroes after he had moved on to do the two-season Pushing Daisies. Fuller was one of the original masterminds of the first season, which was so excellent in so many ways. Though no one could necessarily attribute the show’s sudden decline to Fuller’s absence, […]

Spock on the Fringe

Entertainment Weekly reported today that Leonard Nimoy is likely to join the cast of Fringe, the hit Fox television show that returned to the airways last night. Nimoy will play William Bell, a former colleague of William Bishop (John Noble) and the mysterious head of Massive Dynamics, the company that has a yet-to-be-defined role in […]

First Caprica Video Clips!

Battlestar Galactica may be over, but Caprica is just beginning. The Sci-Fi Channel, soon to be called SyFy (who the hell thought of that stupid idea?), is releasing the pilot on April 21, 2009 – the show will officially premiere in 2010.

Adam Kicks Ass on American Idol

OK, I just banged my knee on my desk. For the second time tonight. My already injured knee. It hurts big time.Just wanted to say that – it has nothing to do with this article. Anyway… I rarely comment on American Idol on this blog, typically because there are so many other blogs devoted to […]

13 Ways to Get Heroes Back on Track

Normally, the announcement of a fourth season of a popular television series would be grounds for celebrations, but one has to wonder how many fans are saying enough is enough already. Heroes, as everyone who is actually reading this post knows, had an incredible first season that gave NBC a much-needed hit, made “Save the […]

Superbowl Ads: Winners and Losers

First off, congrats to the Pittsburgh Steelers AND the Arizona Cardinals for offering the masses one of the best football games ever. As a Seattle Seahawks fan, it was pretty dismaying to face the reality that the team that beat us in the Superbowl a few years back was going to battle against one of […]

TV Show Review: Patrick Swayze is The Beast

The Shield is gone, leaving the airways devoid of gritty, gray-and-grayer police drama. Michael Chiklis was a complete badass, and over the course of seven amazing seasons, the writers carved an amazingly complex, suspenseful and believable tale of crime, corruption and tragedy. The last season, especially, was a masterstroke. And only a few months later, […]

NBC’s Heroes Returning to Better, Simpler Times?

If you’re like me, and I’m sure the majority is, Heroes isn’t nearly as good as it was in its first season. The writing has deteriorated, the characters have become too complicated, and the stories muddled. I’m not too the point where I’d stop watching, but the thought has crossed my mind once or twice. […]

Battlestar Galactica: Caprica is Going to Suck

Battlestar Galactica comes to a triumphant end in early 2009, closing out what could be the best sci-fi television series ever made. And that coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed many of the Star Trek TV series and who loves Firefly – all 12 episodes of it. The show is a masterstroke of action, espionage, […]

TV DVD Review: Lost: Season 4

As an American, I have proudly watched hours upon hours of television my entire life. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was at least listening to television while still in the womb. From The Wonder Years to Darkwing Duck, from Happy Days to Mork and Mindy, from Law and Order to Matlock, I have seen […]
