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, [...]

Random Links to Get You Through Your Day (If You’re Not at the Die Hard Marathon)

Nope, I’m not at the Die Hard marathon over at Cinemark today. Thanks so much for bringing it up! Links: Is anyone else starting to get the feeling the Justice League movie is freaking doomed? The starts and stops have been going on since the 80s, then the writers strike, and now? When it should [...]

We’re Watching You, Romney. And So Is Riggins.

Links, along with some spoiler-ific Walking Dead talk I threw all the way down the bottom: Crowded box office weekend with a crowded outcome, but nothing this week was good enough to take town Taken 2, which repeated as the box office king. That means Argo will have to take its Oscar nomination and be [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Stray Emmy Thoughts, Cameron Crowe and More TV Reviews

The new TV season is underway and I’m already behind. I actually thought about DVR-ing the 2.5 Men premiere to see what Ashton Kutcher was like, but thought my DVR privileges might forever be taken away from me if I did. Like, I’d go and try to tape Breaking Bad and the DVR wouldn’t let [...]

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 [...]

Shutting Down the Night Lights

Got a ton of links from the week I missed, but we had three major TV episode events in the week I missed, some of which are from shows that have been PopRox staples for the last four years. So let’s run ‘em down, and tomorrow I’ll be back with catch-up links: RESCUE ME: At [...]
