I Suppose If I Had Suggested Liam Neeson Day, You’d All Be Patting Me on the Back!

Links today: Fascinating box office weekend because for me, Liam Neeson has had one of the most interesting movie careers of this generation of movie stars. Up until 1999, Neeson had about a 20-year career playing ordinary guys. Good actor, good parts, Oscar nominated for Schindler’s List in a role that could have defined his […]

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 […]

Previewing the Fall TV Season, Part 2 — Wednesday-Saturday

If you missed part 1, here’s how it works. This is a quick scroll through the new nightly primetime TV schedule for the start of the 2011-12 season (no midseason replacements yet) to see what I’ll be watching, ranking the shows in four tiers: Watch it live: The shows I can’t live without seeing, or […]

Linking a Thursday

Some links: I’m prefectly OK that this new Criticis Choice Television Awards thing pretty much reads like my weekly viewing calendar. If that makes me snooty, so be it. Sixteen of the 20 nominated shows are in my rotation — even if I really soured on Louie by the end of the first season and […]

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 […]

It’s Not About Politics, It’s About Bad TV

Some quick news today: Let’s not bring tout, his down to politics or Tea Parties. Let’s bring this down to TV — Sarah Palin’s reality show sucked, so it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s likely not coming back for a second season. If they infused it with Ted McGinley reading the Wall Street Journal for […]

More Boats N Hoes!

A whole week without links, sorry about that: As funny as Step Brothers is — and it’s probably one of my 10 favorite comedies of the 2000s — I’m the one fan that isn’t too excited about the possibility of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly cutting a rap album. I’m not that much of […]
