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 [...]

If You Employ Chevy Chase, You Stink

Let’s clean out some bookmarks and get some new stuff in: This whole Chevy Chase/Community thing is just a freaking nightmare for fans who have had to sit around and watch him ruin one of the best comedies on TV from the inside out. I really, really hope he never gets another acting job, ever, [...]

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 [...]

Where Does Community Go from Here?

Wait! We’ve been through two full weeks of the TV season, Mob Doctor has been on the air three times … and nothing has been canceled yet? This has got to be some kind of record. That doesn’t mean there isn’t TV news to talk about: When you’re a die-hard TV fan over a long [...]

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 [...]

What to Watch for in Fall TV: Veteran Edition

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column appearing in Sunday’s Pocono Record. It’s bigger. It’s longer. It’s cooler. You’re welcome.) Some people think September means the start of school, others think football. I think TV. This month starts another fall season of TV that (hopefully) will keep us interested all the way through [...]

Taking the Good with the Breaking Bad

Sorry I didn’t get this up yesterday, I got consumed in other stuff. But even though it’s now almost two days old, I can’t let the Breaking Bad season premiere go without mentioning it. When you watch Breaking Bad, you’re surrendering yourself to a few principles: You will like no one in the show, and [...]
