What to Watch for in Fall TV: Veteran Edition

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column appearing in Sunday’s Pocono Record. It’s bigger. It’s longer. It’s cooler. You’re welcome.) Some people think September means the start of school, others think football. I think TV. This month starts another fall season of TV that (hopefully) will keep us interested all the way through […]

Comic Book Movie News, TV Themes and the Daily Dose of a Famous Hot Lady in a Bikini

Links today: I’m sure no one remembers this other than me, but last year a reader emailed me to let me know a local woman was on Letterman the night before and Dave joked with her for the entire show. I put out a call for someone, anyone, to let me know who this was so that […]

Underworld, Steven Tyler, Movie Monologues and More, More More

Pats only giving three is a gift. Take it now and tune the next two weeks out. That’s all I’ll say on the matter. Video-heavy links: If you went to a big high school, people who went to small high schools are always shocked to hear you say, “I graduated with her, but I’m pretty sure […]

The Best of 2011 TV

The title says it all, the 10 best shows of 2011. I didn’t rank them, for no other reason than I didn’t want to. Let’s hit it, with the knowledge that I don’t have any premium channels, so there won’t be any mentions of Dexter, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, etc.: JUSTIFIED: No show […]

Not Canceled but Really Canceled

We’re too light on the special goings on around the Poconos this week to go into it, so we’re hitting the links today. We’ve got everyone’s midseason TV schedule announced, Fox finished it off yesterday. We now have a list of shows that are, for all intents and purposes, canceled. That doesn’t mean these shows […]

The Family Movie Smackdown

Let’s hit the links: Happy Feet 2 might be the luckiest movie of the year. The movie bombed like silly, but no one even noticed because of Twilight’s major haul. So instead of having to answer questions like, “How many times can you make a kids movie disguised as environmental propaganda?” Warner Brothers gets to […]

Annie’s Boobs May Really Be Gone Forever

NBC is baffling. It’s half-heartedly been trying to hold on to its identity as the place for Thursday night comedy for then last six years, never fully committing to it. The network finally had the chance to get its four best comedies on, in a row, starting in January, but it instead made the decision to bump […]

Previewing the Fall TV Season, Part 2 — Wednesday-Saturday

If you missed part 1, here’s how it works. This is a quick scroll through the new nightly primetime TV schedule for the start of the 2011-12 season (no midseason replacements yet) to see what I’ll be watching, ranking the shows in four tiers: Watch it live: The shows I can’t live without seeing, or […]

Comic-Con, Captain America, Glee and the Emmys

Tons to get to playing catch-up from my vacation last week, let’s hit it: It’s a waste of time to get in to how geeks became the rulers of the Hollywood world, but this weekend is our Christmas — Comic-Con. I’ve never been and never will, not because I’ve got two kids and it’s 4,000 […]

All TV, All the Time

I’ve been making allusions on Facebook and Twitter about how I just got a bunch of summer concert tickets to give away, and yeah, we got ’em. I’m not saying what or where the shows are for yet — but they’re pretty good shows within a hour’s drive. And they’re not Mountain Laurel tickets. Not […]
