That’s it, the network TV season is over. I would ask how you felt about it but, let’s be honest, you don’t watch network TV anymore. You watch Game of Thrones and, if you’re really cool, you maybe downloaded Horace & Pete (if you haven’t, you should). You’re a young, busy, hip person; you don’t […]

Spoiler Alert right off the top because this was the first episode of TV in quite some time that Facebook actually ruined for me the night-of (usually it’s more of a “this happened 3 months ago, at this point you deserve to be spoiled” kind of thing). I fight with people about The Big Bang […]

This week featured the brilliant premieres of Modern Family and Big Bang Theory. Amidst full hours of comedy on both fronts (some of their best episodes to date), two supporting characters showed the incredible bench depth of both series. The first episode of Modern Family* sported a fantastic subplot about Haley’s boyfriend Dylan (Reid Ewing). […]

This week’s Big Bang Theory was a consistent half hour of geeky giggles. The icing on the proverbial cake? A guest starring role by none-other than River Tam/she-terminator Summer Glau. The plot forced the four geeks (and Summer Glau, as herself) onto a train for eleven hours, because Sheldon likes the clickety clack of the […]

This week’s BBT featured a guest spot by none other than Michael Trucco. Don’t know who he is? You clearly haven’t been doing your nerdy homework. Trucco is none other than dream-worthy sometimes-Starbuck-love-interest Samuel Anders from Battlestar Galactica. And that’s a big deal for a lot of nerds, from me to Dwight Schrute. Here he […]

AILMENT Headaches, nausea and signs of depression brought on by sub par comedy attempts, tired plot lines, inconsistency in Barney Stinson’s values and the sight of Jason Segal in bad drag. SUGGESTED REMEDY A hearty dose of maniacle supervillain laughter, the unauthorized use of military spy satelites, and 4 or 5 rounds of Klingon Boggle is […]

This week’s Big Bang Theorywas, like fan favourite Dr. Sheldon Cooper, genius. When a new grad student, Ramona, takes a liking to Sheldon, he embraces the idea of someone fawning over him, until it gets to a point where he needs to invoke something called “the godzilla clause” to get rid of her. The brilliant […]

On Big Bang Theory, a lonely and depressed Penny hilariously became obsessed with online gaming. While on How I Met Your Mother Ted agreed to move to New Jersey and Robin agreed to move to Japan for a new job. But I swear the episode was actually funny, not just full of depressing revelations that […]

CBS Comedies: a stop and go situation

This week’s How I Met Your Mother was good, not great. There was some quality Barney, some decent Ted, and some funny Robin. I was happy to see a Marshall-centric episode since he’s been ignored for most of the season but was disappointed to have my suspicion confirmed that he’s become too broad a character… and Lily’s […]

“Math, Science, History, Unravelling the Mystery: it all started with a Big Bang”

“You have about as much chance of going out with Penny as the Hubble Telescope has of finding that at the center of each black hole there’s a little man with a flashlight trying to find the circuit breaker” said Sheldon to his friend Leonard in the pilot episode of The Big Bang Theory. One […]

My favourite show currently on the air is (no secret here: How I Met Your Mother). I was, however, disappointed in last night’s third season premier. While still better than most sitcoms out there (see the second half of this post), last night’s HIMYM was not up to their usual standard. After re-watching the entire […]
