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, [...]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide and the Best of 2012 TV

Ho hum, I guess we’re all partied out heading into the weekend, huh? I’ve been looking for a place to squeeze in my top 10 TV shows of the year, and this seems like a good place to do it before we get swallowed into Oscar nominations next week (they’re on Thursday). A couple things [...]

Pre-November Sweeps Awards

(This is an extended preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. As per the usual, it doesn’t contain any commentary on HBO or Showtime shows, because I don’t get paid enough to subscribe to pay-TV. If you’re looking for thoughts on Homeland, you probably know where to find them by now.) This is [...]

Tuesday Nights Aren’t Big Enough for All of Those Sitcoms

Wednesday links, and tomorrow brings us the blockbuster edition of the holiday movie preview, fyi: One of the biggest ratings battles coming in to this year was destined to be Tuesday nights between 9 and 10, when Fox, ABC and NBC were all airing sitcoms that not only were good, but were all pretty much [...]

Fall TV Preview, Part 1

It’s time for one of my favorite column gimmicks of the year — the official PopRox fall TV preview. Good timing since the fall TV schedule gets going tonight. It’s the place where you can hear things like How to Be a Gentleman “might be the greatest sitcom cast assembled in at least the last 10 [...]

ABC, the Accommodating Broadcast Channel

If nothing else, you have to thank ABC for being so accommodating with its 2012-13 schedule. “Awwww, how sweet! You put that Tim Allen garbage and the new Reba McEntire retread all the way out there on Fridays so it won’t bother me. You shouldn’t have! And Last Resort, one of the few new dramas premiering [...]

Tuesday’s TV, Retold, Again, for a Second Time

Gonna stick with a pretty enjoyable night of TV last night on PopRox-approved shows: GLEE: Maybe Ryan Murphy felt my Sue Sylvester overload kicking in. Maybe he knew I was getting a little tired of hearing those quippy one-liners come out of her mouth. So maybe he knew he needed a better foil for her, [...]

Whitney Houston, One of the Best Ever

I’m pretty sure I’ve never considered myself a Whitney Houston fan. Never hated her either. But growing up in the 80s, she couldn’t be avoided. She was everywhere, and there were completely legitimate arguments over which female singer ruled the decade, her or Madonna (Madonna in a landslide, but that’s just me). What Whitney Houston did, [...]

Comic Book Movie News, TV Themes and the Daily Dose of a Famous Hot Lady in a Bikini

Links today: I’m sure no one remembers this other than me, but last year a reader emailed me to let me know a local woman was on Letterman the night before and Dave joked with her for the entire show. I put out a call for someone, anyone, to let me know who this was so that [...]

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 [...]
