Don’t Call It a Comeback, Because It’s Not

I’m trying to develop a new phrase that means “quick and dirty” because I say it a lot when I do this quick. I’ll take any suggestions down yonder in the comments. Until I get some … it’s quick and dirty today: It’s nowhere near a comeback since NBC is still light years away from [...]

When You Ruin a Chance at Zero Percent, You Get What You Deserve

Links today: The funniest thing I read over the weekend were the comments on Rotten Tomatoes over one reviewer’s positive review of Jack and Jill (very, very naughty language) because he screwed up what was looking like a 0% rating, which has only happened a couple times in the history of the site. Even the [...]

Emmy 2011 Preview

See that little ginger girl whose mom remarried some guy named Oscar a couple years ago? She’s the Emmys. The red-headed stepchild of the Oscars. That’s what makes it so weird that I enjoy the Emmys more than the Oscars. It’s more fast-paced, there always seems to be a major award being handed out and people seem to [...]

Easily the hands-down favorite to win [...]

Five Questions We Need Answered at the Golden Globes

You know that fun-loving brother you have that comes to family dinners once a year, proceeds to finish both bottles of wine he brought for everyone and says at least three things that compel at least half of the table to roll their eyes? That’s the Golden Globes. We treat them both the same way. We don’t [...]

More Sitcoms at 10!

Straight links today, let’s hit it: The news here isn’t that The Whole Truth is once again disappearing from the ABC schedule. We all knew that was happening, Wade Phillips was a better bet to make it to 2011. What is interesting is that ABC announced Monday it will be filling the 10 p.m. slot with [...]

Tron, Caprica, Captain America, Zombies and More …

Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone! I think I’m starting to come around on Tron Legacy. Even though I didn’t like the first one that much when I saw it when I was like 8, it’s impossible to say the trailers for the new one don’t look incredibly cool. While I don’t necessarily like [...]

We’ll be in TV overload for a couple weeks here. There isn’t a good movie coming out for more than a month and with the Emmys coming Sunday (picking the winners in Friday’s blog) and a new TV season on the way, there’s gonna be plenty of TV to cover. For now, it’s the fall [...]
