You’re All Looking Forward to Another Late Night Feud

Links: (UPDATE: Of course as soon as I hit the “publish” button, the news became official. Jay Leno is leaving The Tonight Show next spring, and Jimmy Fallon will be taking over the hosting duties. This … this could be awesome. Anyway, this is what I thought when it was only moderately kinda official …) [...]

Top 20 Movies of 2012

My favorite blog post of the year, my top 20 movies of 2012. Yeah, it’s late. But since I don’t actually review movies, I don’t get them sent to me by the studio. I gotta schlep around and wait for them to come to a local theater. That also means I haven’t seen everything that [...]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide and the Best of 2012 TV

Ho hum, I guess we’re all partied out heading into the weekend, huh? I’ve been looking for a place to squeeze in my top 10 TV shows of the year, and this seems like a good place to do it before we get swallowed into Oscar nominations next week (they’re on Thursday). A couple things [...]

More Star Wars, USA Cancellations and a New Boy Meets World

Catch-up links: Sorry that I can’t stop writing about Star Wars. I think until 2015 rolls around, I’m just gonna hang out and be ridiculously skeptical about a new Star Wars movie. That’s just how I’m gonna play it, thanks. That gives us 2.5 years to come up with all kinds of different conspiracy theories [...]

We’re Watching You, Romney. And So Is Riggins.

Links, along with some spoiler-ific Walking Dead talk I threw all the way down the bottom: Crowded box office weekend with a crowded outcome, but nothing this week was good enough to take town Taken 2, which repeated as the box office king. That means Argo will have to take its Oscar nomination and be [...]

Handy Dandy Summer 2012 Box Office Review Guide

(As is the Thursday policy, this is an extended preview of the Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. The paper usually can’t hold what I wanna get out, and I’m allowed to be a little more free here. Just a little.) Going into a summer movie season, you always think you know what’s going [...]

SNL, Avengers and Stern

Programming note: I think next week I’ll start some fall TV previews, night-by-night. That means for the next month, or maybe longer because there are a ton of premieres in October this year, we’re going to be really TV heavy. I try to watch and review as much as I can of the new shows, [...]

Adios, Office

The worst part about being on vacation is hearing news and saying, “I need to get that up on my blog, prontissimo!” but then realizing that it’s much more important to take a nap. I pretty much unplugged last week, so let’s try and catch up as best we can: The departure of The Office [...]

Avengers, Stern and Jennifer Love Hewitt

(For some unknown reason, this didn’t post on Monday. My bad. Hope this is still semi-enjoyable.) Linkage: Why stop now? I managed to post something about Avengers for, like, 20 straight posts, so how could I possibly resist when it just sets the record — excuse me, obliterates the record — for opening weekend box [...]

Dark Knight, Prometheus, Dare Invade Sacred Avengers Week

Welcome to Avengers Week! Wait, I’m the only one calling it that? Weird. Anyway, I’ve already had like four straight weeks of Avengers news in every blog, so it’s not like anything is changing, right? Right. You won’t be able to swing a dead cat around the Internet for the next five days without getting some Avengers news. [...]
