Welcome to the DC/CW game Barry Allen. For the last two years Arrow has paved the way for bringing a successful small screen adaptation of a super hero. Sure the WB/CW had Smallville, and it was entertaining, but in this new universe creator Greg Berlanti balances the human nature, and the team behind these shows […]

About a year ago I read the Gillian Flynn book “Gone Girl.” Every year I try I to read a book that is going to be made into either a television series or film, I am a nerd who likes to compare source material, and see if the auteur “gets” the source material. Sometime it’s […]

Cary was caught on wire with three of Bishop’s associates; one of them was an informant for the States attorney. As Alicia tries to post Cary’s […]

Let ripple begin! In the last few years past Cary Agos played by the very talented Matt Czuchry has not had much to do, but tonight just may have been the night he earned his first Emmy nomination. The first episode of the sixth season starts with Cary getting arrested, and those ripples take form […]

It’s great to see so many Fall 2014 television dramas have, or attempt to have strong female leads. Debra Messing in the Mysteries of Laura, Viola Davis in How to Get Away with Murder, Katherine Heigl in State of Affairs. One of the people to thank for this trend is Shonda Rhimes who raked across […]

The Skeleton Twins is both incredibly witty, heartbreaking, and one of my favorite films of the Year, so far! If you asked me over the years which generation of Saturday Night Live performers would have the best careers, I probably would have said the Will Ferrell/Molly Shannon crowd. Through my personal experience I never found […]

I know what you are thinking, yes its only September, but with festival circuit in full swing, Telluride, Venice, and Toronto, it’s time to start talking about and predicting this year’s Oscar contenders. I have held back as long as I can. The earliest “serious” contender came from the Cannes Film Festival, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher […]

A woman who is a mother and a cop? Shocking! The Mysteries of Laura would make you think that being a working mother is brilliant new trick, or premise for a television series. This show makes working mothers who are balancing family and career look appalling, and I am a single gay man. There were […]

The statistic all over the Internet, troubling studio executives and producers of the world, is the domestic summer box office was down 14.6 percent from last year. Some films found footing in this drought, especially good movies. I think there are lessons to be learned that could help change things, but will anyone listen? Make […]

 *Spoilers Ahead* Over seven seasons True Blood has had some ups, and lots of downs.  After the show’s second season, the series seemed to over stuff the cast with people who were killed off in meaningless methods, rather than focusing on the development of the central characters.  Who remembers the Sam and his family of […]

First and foremost, I must say I am happy with all of the Breaking Bad wins, that show deserved every trophy it won tonight, but more on that later. Let’s start with the host, poor Seth he tried, he started out with some great zingers about cable television and Netflix being the most nominated shows, […]

Can Modern Family tie Frasier’s record for the most wins in a series category with 5 wins? Will first year show Orange is the New Black, which is more of a drama in my opinion, do what Desperate Housewives could not, win in this category as a dramedy? Last year there were two big surprises […]

So will/should win at the Emmy Awards in the drama categories this year? If you are trying to win your office pool, you should know that every show competing in drama series submits 6 episodes, or if there is a two hour episode, that counts as one on a tape. Each actor submits one episode, […]

Sorry if you missed my sassy re-cap last week, but I did not have much to add.  I figured I would chime in on the second to last True Blood ever because, True Blood is making the last season of Dexter look like Shakespeare. Is Bill going to die? I honestly hope the answer to […]

On Saturday August 16th, 2014 the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) handed out 80 trophies for Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards.  The number of categories actually increased by five this year, which is almost unfathomable, this award body may rival the Grammy Awards soon.  Most of the awards passed out involved things […]

Many years ago, I remember being obsessed with saying “Good Morning, Vietnam” as a young kid.  I was probably five or six, but I remember this loud boisterous guy bringing humor and joy with this phrase. Then came the re-runs of Mork and Mindy, was this the same guy from that movie?  This was different, […]

I will try not to be a bitter fan, but this show is ending on such a mediocre note, and making Dexter’s final season look like Shakespeare, and that is saying a lot.  I guess I did not let go of my bitterness especially since my first sentence about this past Sunday’s episode was riddled […]

From 1999-2004 HBO was ahead of the curve with a show about four women in their late 30s, and 40s who dated, talked about sex, ate cake, and did it all.  Sex and the City got people saying, “I’m a Carrie” or “I’m a Samantha” In the 2011-2012 television season HBO boldly put out three […]

The season’s allegory for Hep-V as a type of HIV/AIDS is interesting.  With Sarah Newlin and co. behind the creation of this disease there is the thought or connection that like Hep-V, HIV/AIDS were human made diseases meant to wipe out a population, but what about the other victims?  This week explores that topic on […]

Let’s Celebrate the Dead Alcide’s dad and girlfriend come to Bon Temps to honor his death.  Along with Alcide they throw a massive party to celebrate their lives and the lives saved and brought back home.

The Primetime Emmy Awards seem to like the same shows, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, and Fargo lead the 2014 Emmy Awards Nominations To quote Emmy winner Heidi Klum, “one day you are in and the next day you are out!” Does this phrase apply at the Emmy Awards? It did for […]

Emmy Nominations are a week away, look for my predictions soon. Netflix has two series nominations in this grouping, but Orange is the New Black will be in comedy categories, but this a dream ballot, and in mine it’s easily a drama. Outstanding Drama Series “Breaking Bad” “Game of Thrones” “The Good Wife” “House of […]

As the smell of weed wafted through the air, the lights dimmed, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z took the stage at Gillette Stadium.  The two walked out with one of their first musical collaborations “’03 Bonnie & Clyde.”  The duo was perfectly in sync and rocked out the start to one of the most fun concerts.
