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.

Marketing 101 and Green Lantern

It’s been a pretty crazy time in PopRox land, and that’s all I’m gonna say about it instead of boring everyone with the details. I didn’t keep, like, 10 of the promises I made last week. And that’s a lot of broken promises. So instead of making any more that I won’t keep, I can […]

How Long Does Jon Hamm Put up with This?

Wednesday links: It’s official — Mad Men isn’t coming back til next year. This should surprise exactly no one, it was the worst-kept secret of the last few weeks. The problem with this won’t have anything to do with the quality of the show next season or how the product is delivered overall. The problem […]

Right into it, part 2 of the look at winter season TV, back with straight links on Friday: PARKS AND RECREATION (NBC, Jan. 20): We’ll never know if Parks and Rec will have the same kind of steam it had last year when NBC decided it would be a good idea to keep it off […]

Turn of the Spider-Man

In the entertainment world, it’s always interesting to wonder why people take on impossible projects. Why did James Cameron want to go through pain-staking efforts, delays and budget upheavals to make Titanic? Why did Fox greenlight a single-minded serial show like 24 when just about every other serial show in TV history failed miserably? Why would […]

McClane and Bauer — together?

Life is good when you drive in to work and hear Get It Together by Beastie Boys with Q-Tip, Sublime’s What I Got, Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain, I Alone by Live and The Reflex by Duran Duran pretty much all in a row. So I’ll try and keep this happy today and give you some extra links […]

Does Glee Need Fixing Already?

(HEAVY SPOILER ALERTS FOR GLEE AND JUSTIFIED, BE WARNED!!!) Remember Stewie Griffin’s compliment sandwich on Family Guy? That’s what I’m going to do with Glee’s season finale last night. Here’s the first piece of bread: For the last year, I’ve done nothing but give you reasons to watch Glee, with good reason. The show followed up […]

First Piece of the TV Pilot Puzzle Put Together

I keep meaning to alert people when I won’t be posting on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, but I never get around to it. I have to work on Saturday, so I was off yesterday and didn’t post. Sorry. A couple days late on this, but just saw that the next Batman — I refuse to […]

With all these sequels and remakes, Diggstown 2 can’t be far behind. We hope.

Looks like for the foreseeable future, I’ll only be blogging Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Or just three days a week. At some point, I may go back to an every day schedule, but for now we’re scaling back. But you’re not going to get any less news or insight. I normally wrote about 5,000 words a […]
