Top Ten Things I Love About House

10.This episode. Broke my heart. 9. His T-Shirt collection (mostly vintage, and somehow they all seem to do with death..) 8. The completely unrealistic medical traumas (one of my small group members is a doctor and he told me that none of the stuff they talk about on the show is even possible. awesome.) 7. […]

DANCE…DANce…DAnce…Dance…dance…

Two summers ago I discovered what a reality show junkie I could be when I discovered So You Think You Can Dance. (Incidentally I haven’t watched American Idol in two years… so does that mean it balances out? I think it’s been two years. I don’t know. I stopped watching when Taylor Hicks won. And […]

More Pop Culture – Swingtown

I stopped watching CBS a few years ago (call it a boycott if you will) but I am not immune from the commercials they air on other channels. I’m a Bravo watcher through and through, and a little fanatic about Top Chef. Last night during part one of the Top Chef Season finale I saw […]

I’m in a pop culture mood this week…

I heard Coldplay was making a “comeback” (the quotation marks are tongue in cheek … doesn’t it seem like all albums are comebacks?). I wondered if Gwyneth was yoko-ing the group, or if there was something else was going on. I have a love/hate relationship with Coldplay. Some of their music I dig. And I […]

Competitive Reality Show Heaven

Regular readers may remember what a fan I am of Iron Chef America. I love the over-the-top attitude the show relishes in. I laugh out loud, am fascinated and weirded-out every time I watch it. Never having seen the original Iron Chef I don’t know if the American version stands up, but that doesn’t matter […]

Fall TV line-up

It’s premiere week for the alphabet networks, and so far I’m not sure what to think. I discovered Heroes at the end of last year, and the season premiere last night, while action-less, promised an interesting season to come. I was very disappointed to not get some hint of what happened after the Petrelli brothers […]

Something to Laugh About?

Hardly. Note their lack of eye contact with the camera, the flippant attitude and the all-around dismissal of their behavior. It makes me sad.

Why Aaron Sorkin is [Not] My Hero

6/30/07 Update: The series finale of Studio 60 aired this last Thursday. With the return of the show on May 24th, I’d hoped that though the show was canceled, it would still go out with the excitement it came in with. With the exception of the heart-breaking performance of Nathan Corddry in the final four […]

An Evening of Fine Television

…Ah, Gilmore Girls. I got cable just for you, and now your show is over. I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this show over the years and I nearly gave up halfway through season 6. But I just had to know how it was going to end. From 7 to 8 tonight, […]

Captain America

Captain America Killed Outside Courthouse The comic book character was first published during WWII, a time when America was polverized. Much like it is now, so says the co-creator Joe Simon. Captain America was created to be an adversary of Adolf Hilter, and while we all (most of us anyway) now agree that Hilter was […]
