The TV Trap

Since I started watching it last year, Fringe has become one of my all-time most favorite TV shows of all time.Problem is, I was late jumping onto the Fringe bandwagon, and I’m adamant about watching shows in order, especially when, like Fringe, the show has a complex plot with twists, turns and delightful surprises. I’ve been steadily catching up disc by disc through Blockbuster mail service, but when I hit the end of season three next week, I’m going to have a serious problem....more

The Bachelorette: More Fake Traditions, Men in Kilts, and Croatia is ‘Cool as Hell’

Emily and the eight remaining guys spent the week in Dubrovnik, Croatia where master-of-the-obvious Jef made such enlightened statements as, “hey, that looks like a castle!” (while pointing to a castle) and “Croatia is the perfect place to fall in love.” (Yeah, tell that to the people who survived the siege of Dubronvik.)  ...more

"Game of Thrones" Ends With a Punch-in-the-Gut Finale (Spoilers!!)

The iconic shot from last season's Game of Thrones finale was of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) rising from the ashes with her baby dragons perched on her naked body. It was a punch-in-the-gut visual that would be hard for any TV show to top....more

Favorite Characters

We watch a variety of shows here at various times, depending on when I'm working that day. We switch it up because I can only handle so much of any one kids' show. They're fairly irritating, I would say. Of course, so are most adult shows. I work in the living room, so I see all these shows, and I've ended up with a couple of favorite characters. ...more

'Mad Men' is Back, and Twitter and I Can't Wait to Spoil It

Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo (Zou Bisou Bisou, I know.)  Did you have fun at Don's 40th Birthday Bash? I sure did. What better way to bring us back to everything we love about Mad Men than with a swanky cocktail party starring a sultry French Canadian?...more

I Love the 90s

It’s true. All my life I have been hearing about this show, but never once decided to give it a chance until this year. While relaxing in our hotel room during our winter vacation, my sister and I came across this show when we were flipping through the channels on TV. Nothing was really on so we decided to keep it on this show....more

If You Throw It…They Will Come

Me: Want to have dinner with my parents and brother tonight? Kiefer: Sure. Want to go look at a house after work tomorrow? Me: Sure…. Want to throw a slushie in my face? Kiefer: Is this a trick question? Are you as confused as Kiefer?...more

Without a Bruise there is no Pain

Yesterday, I went to Best Buy to shop for a TV. I rarely watch television, but I decided that I wanted one for my room so that I could watch movies snuggled up in bed with my children. I didn’t need a fancy one - simply a basic, 20 in.TV with a DVD player. In making my choice, I had several things to consider - it must easily fit in the car and I must be able to take it up the stairs to my bedroom. ...more
