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. Now? There are two new over-the-air networks, […]

Future Currently Bright at Mountain Laurel (we hope)

There will be plenty of time to criticize the abridged lineup the Mountain Laurel Pocono Mountains Performing Arts Center will be putting on this summer. Plenty of time. But for now, let’s all just sit back and be completely thankful and grateful that someone, anyone, has enough balls to take a chance on what I’m sure […]

Paycheck. Big Paycheck.

Linkage: It was only a matter of time before it happened, but James Bond will be back, with Daniel Craig starring and Sam Mendes directing, in 2012. There was just too much easy money at stake for the movie not to happen. It’s not surprising that the movie is getting made, what is surprising is […]

No More Russell Crowe-in’

Straight links, let’s hit it: There’s yet another lesson in the weekend’s box office, where Harry Potter managed its biggest opening in the franchise’s history and the sixth-biggest of all time. The lesson? Don’t eff with Harry. Not even you, Russell Crowe. Opening Crowe’s The Next Three Days was a gamble, but since the audiences were completely […]

Lessons from the Box Office

We’re a little later today, sorry about that. Quick note to remember our contest for the Harry Potter midnight show tickets at the Pocono Community Theater. Deadline is Wednesday at noon to enter. Also, I’ve been directed to blow out some Harry Potter coverage for Thursday’s paper too. So if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re in […]

Back to the Future … Again

Programming note — I’m on vacation next week and most likely won’t be blogging at all. I probably won’t be back until Oct. 26. I’ll try to throw in some Facebook posts or tweets in that time, but I won’t be around to blog. Sorry. Hopefully when I come back the blog will still be […]

Four Reasons to be Worried About Glee

Unapologetically, unflinchingly, unfailingly, I’m a Glee fan. It was the best and funniest new show of the last television season, featured the most impressive pilot episode of any show in years and did it all by introducing relative newcomers to the TV landscape. It’s one of the most brutally honest — for better or worse […]

The new season is here! The new season is here!

A quick programming note: The schedule this week is going to be screwy, there’s nothing I can do about that. I have jury duty tomorrow, and I had to work a night last night, so we’re on a Tuesday-Thursday-Friday schedule. I hope. But today I’ve got four reviews of new network pilots premiering this week, […]
