Oh Sleepy Hollow. How you were missed. No other show on TV can quite replicate the unique blend of impending apocalypse peppered with history jokes and struggles with modern technology. It feels like forever since the first season finale back in January. But Sleepy Hollow is back, and full of the charm that made the […]

Utopia is my favorite new series so far. Granted, it’s way too early to judge, especially considering there are so many new shows that haven’t started and I’ve been dying to see (namely Gotham and How to Get Away with Murder). I’m really enjoying watching these foolish people spend all of their money with absolutely […]

The Mindy Project is easily my favorite comedy on television. Sometime last year it snuck past Parks and Rec and captivated my attention. Mindy Kaling has always been my favorite part of the series, but the introduction of Adam Pally’s Peter and Xosha Roquemore’s Tamra helped to make this more of an ensemble cast than […]

Utopia is easily the most anticipated new reality series of the fall season. As a multi-day series, Fox was gambling on this non-competition based show and they gave it three episodes during the premiere week. The premise is somewhat simple: a group of 14 Utopians arrive in a secluded land and are given limited funds […]

My buddy would be staying the night. We had been drinking wine, unapologetically mixing our reds and whites; I’m nothing if not a responsible substance abuser and living in Los Angeles, a city of automotive hedonism, can only compound that adherence towards safe driving. So, we sprawled along our separate ends of my L-shaped couch […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2013 My TV Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Andrew Leeds tortured my friend Tessa. Not literally- he’s actually a perfectly nice fellow it seems- but when Christopher Pelant (the hacker-genius/psychopathic game-player/serial killer who bears his face), *spoiler alert* forced Booth to reject Brennan’s marriage proposal, Tessa and […]

The military can often be a funny thing. Like that drunken toga party the rest of Kilo Battery’s staff and I had on Okinawa. Or when Major General John Sedgwick shouted to his men “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance!” moments before he was shot in the face at the Battle of Spotsylvania […]

When we announced that Mark Duplass was our My Cinema Performer of the Year, we acknowledged that it was a close race between him and Chris Messina. Here was a guy winning the My Cinema Award when a solid portion of the work we loved him for happened on the small screen (namely, The Mindy […]

The government is lying to you. Shadowy figures are watching your every move. Terrorist threats are encroaching on North American soil. Enemies are no longer nations, but instead are hiding in plain sight. Information leakers have the potential to bring down the most powerful figures in the world. Science and technology are progressing at an […]

With the overall decline of traditional TV viewership, the networks put an enormous amount of pressure on every show to be a hit right from the start. If the pilot episode of a show gets bad ratings, it is entirely possible that the show will be canceled. This pressure is in many ways counter-intuitive, and […]

Before I started watching FOX’s new drama, Sleepy Hollow, I had a lot of doubts about its viability as a TV show. After watching the pilot, I still have a lot of doubts, just different ones. (Spoilers ahead) The biggest pre-watching question was: how will a fairly straightforward novel be sufficient source material for a […]

It all started with New Girl. Well, actually it started a year earlier when FOX decided to pair the massive hit/obnoxious trainwreck Glee with two new sitcoms, one of which was Raising Hope (technically it was 3 sitcoms in 2 timeslots, one coming in at midseason). Though both Running Wilde and Traffic Light burned out […]

I’ve written previously about my connection with the Girls’ character Hannah. It is not a connection I made  up – I have literally received phone calls and texts from many people after a given episode, so amazed are they by the connection. It’s not entirely flattering: she’s a chubby, semi-unemployed, self-important whiner. But neither is […]

The past week or so has had some amazing sitcom moments. As 30 Rock winds down to tonight’s finale, Kenneth was passed the torch as the new President of NBC and Liz & Criss greeted their new 8-year-old twins at the airport, a mini Jenna and Tracy. But the real standout moment for me came […]

The final season of Fringe was not a misstep, but a plummet off a cliff of stale, forced ideas. I am being melodramatic in order to care, at all, about the meandering storylines and wasted potential of this season. I can pinpoint the precise moment when my apathy turned to rage: in the ninth episode, […]

Fox’s extra Tuesday comedy is fine. It’s cute, it’s good for the occasional chuckle and sympathetic quirk. But that’s about it. The reason I call Ben & Kate Fox’s “extra” Tuesday comedy is that it’s programmed alongside New Girl, The Mindy Project and Raising Hope in what I think is the strongest comedy block on […]
