Uh Oh … the Last Links Blog Post?

I’ve put this off as long as I could, but just so everyone knows, this is my last week at the Pocono Record. I’ve been asked to write a farewell column as my final Sunday PopRox column in the paper, so that’s where I’ll save all the mushy stuff for. I’ll post it here tomorrow, [...]

Keeping Warm in the Winter with TV and Movies

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record.) When you live in northeast Pennsylvania, you’re used to hunkering down in the winter, boarding up the windows and doors and hoping you don’t have to go outside for any other reason than a beer run.

2013: Hopefully Not “The Year of Meh”

(This is an early preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s paper.) Did you ever feel that a “Like” button on Facebook just isn’t good enough? Me too. We need more choices. How about “Like,” “Meh” and “Dislike”? That just about covers it, right? It works for my latest column gimmick, at least, going over [...]

If You Employ Chevy Chase, You Stink

Let’s clean out some bookmarks and get some new stuff in: This whole Chevy Chase/Community thing is just a freaking nightmare for fans who have had to sit around and watch him ruin one of the best comedies on TV from the inside out. I really, really hope he never gets another acting job, ever, [...]

The Bright Side of the Lucas-Disney Deal

Let’s try and catch up after a crazy week: Now that I’ve got yesterday’s rant about George Lucas’ sale of Lucasfilm to Disney out of my system, it’s time to start looking at the bright side and future possibilities. I’ve come up with five: 1. The Star Wars movies really don’t hold up well. They’re [...]

Where Does Community Go from Here?

Wait! We’ve been through two full weeks of the TV season, Mob Doctor has been on the air three times … and nothing has been canceled yet? This has got to be some kind of record. That doesn’t mean there isn’t TV news to talk about: When you’re a die-hard TV fan over a long [...]

RIP Sherman Hemsley, and a Great Excuse to Use a Pic of Sofia Vergara

Arggghhhhh!!! My attenion has been diverted elsewhere today, so I can only do a pretty quick blog. Sorry. I’ll make it up to everyone, soon.  There are only a handful of actors you can put into any role and say, “Be yourself” and the director really means it, because that’s all they’re looking for. At the top of [...]

Let’s All Assess the Future Prospects of Will Smith

Post Memorial Day, get-back-to-work links. So if they’re a little off … whatever. Let’s all bury the potential profitability of the summer movie season because two troubled productions — Battleship and MIB3 — performed poorly over the last two weeks. Oh, really? A movie that was undergoing constant script revisions, took a planned or unplanned month-long hiatus [...]
