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, [...]

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 [...]

Oscar Nominations Can Disappoint and Surprise at the Same Time

Happy Oscar Day everyone! I celebrated the same way I have for a couple years now, by making sure I was on the treadmill at the gym watching the broadcast. That way, I’d be too worried about embarrassing myself to scream out something like, “No Jonah Hill for Moneyball? Screw you Oscars!!!” It’s more peaceful [...]

TV Shows That May (Or May Not) Be Coming to a Theater Near You

We’re living in an age where just because a TV show gets canceled — or is about to be canceled — that doesn’t mean it’s dead. Shows can take the DirecTV route (Friday Night Lights, Damages), the canceled-but-resurrected road (Breaking In) or the ever-popular, hardly ever working online petition chance. None of those is more popular [...]

The Most Beautiful Movie in the Room

Quick links today. Planned to do a TV-season-so-far thing but got sick yesterday and couldn’t watch Walking Dead or Once Upon a Time, so we’ll put that off til Wednesday or Thursday: The Muppets live! Despite some early bad publicity from the old-timers, The Muppets proved profitable, already making back its $40 million budget and positioning [...]

The Advent of Poconos 3-D

The Poconos has 3-D! Well, not yet, not til Friday, when the Poconos Movieplex unveils its new 3-D screen for the release of Piranha 3-D. And not that it matters to me since I have yet to even consider seeing a 3-D movie, but not having one feels like we’ve been living in some barren Arctic outpost. [...]

Thanks! I Needed More Reasons to Hate American Idol!

Mostly TV in the news today: You know, American Idol can suck it. Seriously. How many times is it going to run over and eff up the DVR population of not only its show, but the following show, and the following show? Sooner or later, Fox has to step in and do something about this. [...]

the best tv of the year

Sorry about no post yesterday, my bad. I had to spend most of the day calling our semi-finalists for the Poconos Biggest Loser contest. It actually went better than I imagined it would, but it still took about six hours. Anyway, this will be the last PopRox post before Christmas, so have a great holiday [...]
