Gay and Greek
  Rachael Nisenkier

Since I’m 22, and therefore have mostly semi-mature 22 year-old friends, watching Greek has been a fairly solitary affair. It’s hard to convince these friends that a show on ABC Family about Frats and Sororities is worth our time. Frankly, we couldn’t be less interested in the Frats and Sororities on campus, so why spend […]

There are few things I hold sacred in this world. I pretty much take most things lightly. But Buffy the Vampire Slayer might be the closest thing I have to a religion. Think about it. You’ve got it all. Moral Code? Check. Heroes? Check. A strong respect for life and souls? Check. Witty puns? Double […]

Obsessions
  Kelly Bedard

Emma Stone– She was the saving grace of the underwhelming Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a highlight of The House Bunny and played one of the only relatable characters in Superbad. The girl is a serious talent and she’s here to stay. Dubbed Disney- the mad editing skills of “Fantachan” make the Random Disney Crap YouTube […]

My TV Question of the Day
  Kelly Bedard

Why Can’t Anyone on The Amazing Race Swim? This week they had to endure a foot massage and then swim a 400m relay in a clean, standard length pool- explain to me why this is so hard!

I am a serious fan of genre fiction. I say this to distinguish myself from people who like Lost despite the science fiction or enjoy Buffy while despising horror. It’s not a value judgment; it’s a question of taste. For me, stories that come from a deep internal mythology speak more heartily and more truly […]

Where Would They Be Now?
  Kelly Bedard

Alexis Bledel’s upcoming guest appearance on this Thursday’s 2 hour ER series finale got me thinking about the Gilmore girlsagain. In the 2007 series finale, Rory was about to really leave home for the first time for an amazing job opportunity. Her assignment? Cover the presidential campaign of a particular long shot candidate for the […]

Anything to do with Ryan Walker. The big haired manipulative brat is possibly the worst thing to ever come out of a Berlanti show. He’s badly written, REALLY badly cast and just a general nuisance on an otherwise lovable show. Addison Montgomery’s sex life, or that of the people she works with (except maybe Cooper’s). Someone please […]

Starz: keeping with the times
  Kelly Bedard

A major pet peeve of mine is when networks make a big show of taking their material off of YouTube. I think being able to watch an SNL sketch on YouTube just garners interest in the product itself; I think it would bring in viewers to the full network show. So it always seemed to […]

Pet Peeve: Actor Interference
  Kelly Bedard

Having just finished listening to this week’s official Lostpodcast with executive producers Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse (yeah, I’m that person), I have to share a pet peeve: Actors doing anything other than acting. On the podcast, Damon and Carlton answered a fan question about something that seems to have caused a bit of a stir […]

High School Reunionthis week was possibly some of the most aggravatingly real drama I’ve ever seen on TV. It was a true testament to the fact that there are 2 sides to every coin that I spent the episode flip flopping who I liked and disliked. At this point, 3 episodes into the reunion of the class of […]

TV Stars on Stage
  Kelly Bedard

Your average TV fan is probably aware of Guys & Dolls. For one thing, the 1992 revival starred Peter Gallagher (also known as The OC’s Sandy Cohen) and the iconic Nathan Lane. What fans may also know is that Lauren Graham, beloved by all as a Gilmore Girl, is currently starring as Adelaide in the […]

Dear Dawn Ostroff,
  Kelly Bedard

I believe in you. True, you’ve made some hideous programming mistakes in the past and cancelled more than one beloved show, but I choose to believe in you anyway. I’m choosing to believe that, despite all appearances, you are more of a Gilmore girl than a Gossip girl at heart and that you can’t possibly […]

My TV Question of the Day
  Kelly Bedard

Should Shonda Rhimes be Fired? Consistently, Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice are among the most disappointing shows on the air. The only characters with interesting development belong to actors who are clearly pulling more than their fair weight, the stories are repetitive and uninteresting, the dialogue contrived and the sets rife with discontent. I love […]

  Kelly Bedard

What I love this week…. Maria Schneider. Big Band is back people! Slings & Arrows Season 2. Particularly the Romeo & Juliet stuff. Yvonne Strahovski on Chuck. Proving week after week that Buffy was really kind of a lame character afterall on the grand scale of hot blond super crime fighters. The fact that it’s […]

Tara’s Family supportive husband Max, somewhat rebellious daughter Kate and sweet son Marshall are the perfect compliment to the central craziness in United States of Tara. Scrubs The new season is very sweet. The 8th season comedy also deserves some serious thanks for being one of the only shows with new episodes this week. Captain Awesome I’m watching season […]

Who’s That Voice?
  Kelly Bedard

Could you identify the talent behind tonight’s 30 Rock original song? Scroll down for clues as to the identity of the singer who satirically sang while Alec Baldwin, Selma Hayek and the old man went out on the town. 1. He was discovered while performing at a wedding 2. He’s Canadian 3. He dated British […]

Fan-flippin’-tastic!

For the biggest laugh around, check out your favourite TV stars (from How I Met Your Mother, The Office, The West Wing, Scrubs, Saturday Night Live and more) starring in this fantastic video from FunnyorDie.com, directed and produced by Hollywood PoohBah and So You Think You Can Dancejudge Adam Shankman. You may even learn a […]

As the year comes to a close it seems only fitting to pay it tribute. So here are some of the highs, lows and in-betweens of the year, in my opinion. The Best Network Decisions of the Year:  – NBC giving new life to Friday Night Lights by striking a deal with Direct TV to […]

While watching a recent episode of Privileged, in which the billionaire-playboy-next-door-turned-perfect-boyfriend won the heart of our heroine while her sweet and supportive best friend settled for the next best thing, I began to wonder: With so many shows serving up both the exemplary good guy and the brooding bad boy, is there some sort of pattern […]

EW’s Hits and Misses
  Kelly Bedard

I finally got my copy of Entertainment Weekly’s “Entertainer of the Year” Double Issue and found that it was full of unexpected delights and disappointments. Let me start off by wondering… what was it that put Robert Downey Jr. over the top in the competition between him and Tina Fey for the #1 spot? In […]

If TV writers can manage to create multi-faceted characters, intricate plot lines, memorable jokes and poignant dramatic moments, why can’t they seem to grasp proper English grammar? On this week’s Gossip Girl, Dan “the writer” Humphrey said “I feel really badly about that”. To “feel badly” is to have your sense of touch impaired, to […]

OBSESSIONS OF THE WEEK BARACK OBAMA, The Presidential Election and The American People. I’m the proudest Canadian you will ever find, at least in Boston. But last night I found myself insanely jealous of my American friends. Not only was their election a celebration the scale of which Canada has never seen, but they now have […]

Fiction pales in comparison
  Kelly Bedard

I live in a world of fiction. I’ve always subscribed to the theory that minds are more easily changed with stories than with speeches. And while reality often disappoints, I’ve been able to spend years alongside the honorable heroes, charming leaders and valiant world servants of television. But as of tonight, as of this very […]

The Male Recession
  Kelly Bedard

Last night Samantha Newly met the perfect man. He’s kind, funny, handsome, rich, caring, charming and every good adjective there is. He runs a charity, cares about humanity AND the planet. He didn’t lose interest after she slept with him, didn’t care when she said something stupid and didn’t judge her crazy mother. He’s perfect. […]

I’m not very impressed with the world at this very moment. So, though I am slightly obsessed with Chuck Bass, Netflix and BU Shakespeare Society’s Twelfth Nightthis week, I will instead be handing down a list of complaints and grievances. So, my big objections of the moment are as follows: The People Who Run the […]
