Cashing in on Some Mad Men Season Five Bets

As has been the case a couple times in the last few months, we’re in All Mad Men Monday mode. If that doesn’t interest you, see ya later this week, no hard feelings. But after what was another super exceptional season of TV’s best show, I can’t help but break down some of the prop bets […]

How PR Works in Today’s World of Entertainment

Links: UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Just thought I’d throw this in here that Glee (fourth season), Raising Hope (third season) and New Girl (second season), all PopRox-approved shows, have been renewed by Fox for the 2012-13 TV season. None of it is that big of a surprise, although Raising Hope’s ratigns aren’t exactly fantastic and it loses a […]

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 […]

Adios, Rescue Me

For someone with a lot of family in the Wilkes-Barre area and along the Susquehanna River in general, I’m having a hard time doing anything other than watching the news and finding the latest updates. But let’s see if we can do it anyway. After reviews of one season finale and another premiere, it’s the […]

Revisiting the Summer Movie Slate and Looking to the Fall

Rain or no rain, we can still hit the links: It’s the Tuesday after Labor Day. Kids are back in school. It’s cold. The only thing that says it’s still summer is the date. That makes this as good a time as any to go back and assess my summer movie box office predictions from May. My predictions: 1. Tranny […]

Shutting Down the Night Lights

Got a ton of links from the week I missed, but we had three major TV episode events in the week I missed, some of which are from shows that have been PopRox staples for the last four years. So let’s run ’em down, and tomorrow I’ll be back with catch-up links: RESCUE ME: At […]

Finale Recaps, Green Lantern and TV Changes

As per the usual, if you came around looking for thoughts on the American Idol, Dancing with the Stars or Oprah finales, you’re in the wrong place. Sorry, but it would take some kind of martial law situation to get me to watch any of those. Some spoiler-filled finale recaps are down yonder on the […]

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 […]

Where Have You Gone, FX?

There was a time when FX was the place people too poor to pay for HBO went to watch the best TV on TV. In the early and mid-90s, everything FX put on the air was a complete critical and ratings home run. The Shield (2002) and Nip/Tuck (2004) each won Golden Globes for best […]
