Best Golden Globes Guesses

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column that will appear in the Pocono Record. Yes, it’s a little early right now to talk about Golden Globe nominations, but for Sunday’s column, when I try to look ahead to the most interesting thing of the upcoming week, it won’t be.) Predicting the Oscar nominations isn’t [...]

Your Quick Guide to the Biggest Categories at the Emmys

(This is an extended version of the PopRox Sunday column in the Pocono Record.) The Emmys will never have the anticipation or pageantry of the Oscars, but seeing as some of the best acting is being done on television, these awards can sometimes mean just as much as an Oscar. So as Hollywood starts taking [...]

Heh Heh. The Breaking Bad Finale Was Called “Face Off.” Get It?

Just so everyone knows, when I write those Sunday columns that go in the paper, I write them on Thursdays. This one, actually, I had to write on Wednesday. After that, I have no control of what happens. So if you read Sunday’s column and thought, “Wait, didn’t I hear that The Simpsons contract thing [...]

The Office Without Steve Carell

For seven years, The Office has been the biggest scripted show on NBC, much of it thanks to the comedic talents of Steve Carell. Those days are over, as Carell has left to focus on his movie career. Now the show has to prove it’s still one of the funniest on TV without its funniest [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Give ‘Em Some Emmy Love

Back with links tomorrow, but this is your weekly, extended look at the PopRox Sunday column: The Emmys had a hard job narrowing down the nominees back in the 80s when there were only three networks and scant original programming on any of the 10 or so other channels. Now? There are two new over-the-air networks, [...]

Why Entourage Doesn’t Work in Syndication

It’s rare to tease a blog entry, because usually, I don’t know what I’m writing about until I come into work in the morning and check the news. But Friday is different, because yesterday I talked to co-executive produce of The Office, Stroudsburg High graduate Danny Chun. And boy, did he give me some major [...]

Rescue Me from Boredom

Two reminders, the same two reminders we’ll have all week: Reminder 1: The season finale of Rescue Me is tonight. Just kidding. The actual reminder is that we’re doing another PopRox live chat Friday at noon. We’ve had fun with these so far, so we’re going to keep doing them as long as it stays [...]
