ABC’s Flash Forward debuted last night, and while I’ll give it another chance, the series premiere was underwhelming. Flash Forward is about a worldwide event where everyone on the planet blacks out for two minutes and 17 seconds. Except they didn’t actually black out; instead, they saw glimpses of their own future. Some saw good […]
Hollywood wants Jay Leno to fail. It’s true, and it’s not surprising. With his new show set to debut at 10pm on September 14, 2009 on NBC, Hollywood is rooting against him, according to an interesting article by Variety, published today. Why? A week’s worth of Leno will cost the same amount as one, one-hour […]
This title may be a bit misleading. In reality, this article is about the best television shows that I currently watch on TV. I don’t watch every TV show. I don’t watch The Closer or House or NCIS or 30 Rock, to name a few. Comedy is generally not my thing. I much prefer serialized […]
When Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse debuted in February, I was mildly intrigued to see what the man had come up with. I never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer but was a huge fan of Firefly and its companion film Serenity, and so Whedon’s name alone was enough to get me to watch the premiere. The show […]
The Golden Globe-winning series Mad Men brings Season 2 to DVD this Tuesday, and along with it all 13 episodes of some of the best drama on television. Season 2 builds upon the foundations created in the first season while giving the characters more things to do, and more importantly, more avenues to explore.
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 […]
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‘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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
