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 […]

The Weekend is Here and New Show Reviews

But it’s back this year at the […]

Hollywood’s Recipe for the Perfect Dad

Sick of hearing about this KISS ticket contest we’re staging. Tough noogies. We’ve got about five days to let people know about the contest, and you’ll definitely be hearing about it if you keep reading. I’ll try to keep it short though. Like this. In that spirit — PopRox live chat July 1! Happy Father’s […]

That’s about eight months since the original WTF teaser trailer turned people against the movie and started the Internet buzzing about it. OK, turned me against the movie. It’s already got […]

Where Does South Park Go from Here?

We say this because we love — South Park is at a crossroads. The animated sitcom that belongs in any discussion of “Best Show of the Last 20 Years,” may be running out of gas. The consistent issuance of classic-type episodes on a week-by-week basis hasn’t happened since 2004’s eighth year, and a season is […]

In Other News, Nightmare on Elm Street is Fiction

You’ve already read tons of interviews for The Social Network now, so it’s silly to cram another one down your throat. Suffice it to say I really, really liked it. But as much as this movie is a commentary on the founding of one of the most popular Internet sites ever, it’s real story vs. the […]

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 […]

Is 3-D Over Already?

Second warning — the next PopRox live chat is coming next Friday at noon. That means next week I’ll be reminding you pretty much every day, so be ready for that. Another live blog warning: If you’re a live blog fan, or a NASCAR fan, or both, we’ve got a couple going this weekend for […]
