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 [...]

#RenaissanceoftheSitcom

(This is an extended preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. It’s like finding a Blu-ray Easter egg right here. Also, I’m gonna start a hashtag with this, feel free to use it yourself and get to trending. #RenaissanceoftheSitcom, yo.) There was the reality era. The game show period. The vampire trend. Television networks [...]

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 [...]

Previewing the Fall TV Season, Sunday-Tuesday

I’ve been doing this little gimmick to preview the Fall TV season for a couple years now. And even though my viewing habits have changed, the premise hasn’t. We have three stages of viewing: Watch it live: The first priority. These are the shows I cannot, will not miss. DVR: I’ll catch up on these shows [...]

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, [...]

The Randomness of Being Randomly Random

Just thought I’d pop open my head and pick out a couple of thoughts that have been banging around there lately: It’s very disconcerting to wake up and realize, “Wow, my mind works exactly like Dexter Morgan’s. We think the exact same things!” Exactly how many comebacks is Britney Spears allowed to have before we can [...]

Your Fall Viewing Guide

We’ll be in TV overload for a couple weeks here. There isn’t a good movie coming out for more than a month and with the Emmys coming Sunday (picking the winners in Friday’s blog) and a new TV season on the way, there’s gonna be plenty of TV to cover. For now, it’s the fall [...]

Pinch Me — the Emmys Got It (Close to) Right

Every year I loathe Emmy Nomination Day. Every year, I get my hopes up that the best work in this golden age of TV will be recognized. I wake up hopeful, charged-up and with my fingers crossed. Every year, those hopes are dashed when the likes of Boston Legal and Two and a Half Men get nominated [...]

Joss Whedon to The Avengers? It could work, but …

Catching up with some links: The Avengers is the hottest property in Hollywood right now. It’s going to have the biggest opening weekend in movie history when it comes out in May 2012, it’s going to make stars of anyone who’s in it and whoever directs it will be able to direct and produce anything they [...]
