Five Questions We Need Answered at the Golden Globes

You know that fun-loving brother you have that comes to family dinners once a year, proceeds to finish both bottles of wine he brought for everyone and says at least three things that compel at least half of the table to roll their eyes? That’s the Golden Globes. We treat them both the same way. We don’t […]

News and inbox are getting full, but I wanted to get this on the record before everyone else starts putting out their own lists — the PopRox top 10 shows of 2010.

Around the Poconos …

I have no idea where to even start with this after having not posted for almost two weeks, so we’re going with a straight stream of consciousness thing here, whatever I find is what I’m throwing on. Wait, I know where to start with some things I missed — locally. So here goes: Pike County […]

Why Entourage Doesn’t Work in Syndication

It’s rare to tease a blog entry, because usually, I don’t know what I’m writing about until I come into work in the morning and check the news. But Friday is different, because yesterday I talked to co-executive produce of The Office, Stroudsburg High graduate Danny Chun. And boy, did he give me some major […]

Rescue Me from Boredom

Two reminders, the same two reminders we’ll have all week: Reminder 1: The season finale of Rescue Me is tonight. Just kidding. The actual reminder is that we’re doing another PopRox live chat Friday at noon. We’ve had fun with these so far, so we’re going to keep doing them as long as it stays […]

Emmy Predictions

When the Emmy nominations came out in July, it was glorious. For the first time in … ever? … the Emmy people seemed to get things right honoring the best TV has to offer. There was no Boston Legal to laugh at, no Mentalist to scratch our heads over, no Entourage to make us think […]

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 […]

Learning About Movies, Mad Men and the Emmys

Even though the movies blew, there was a lot to be learned this weekend at the box office, stuff we and every Hollywood studio should already have known, but apparently needed convincing: —Buddy Ackerman would be proud, because “male macho bullsh!t” wins out again. Sylvester Stallone took a cheesy idea, one that could easily have gone […]

Comic-Con 2010 Pick Up

2011 already seemed old at this weekend’s Comic-Con. Just a couple years ago, it was considered pretty groundbreaking when a movie cast/team would show up at Comic-Con to promote a movie that wasn’t premiering for another year. When the Iron Man cast did it in 2007 to tout the 2008 release, trailer in hand, people thought […]
