Hart of Dixie is one of my favourite parts of the week. Sure, I watch a handful of important cable dramas and similarly depressing things, but there are only a few shows I get excited about the way I used to back in the pre-PVR days when would interrupt Sunday dinner to watch American Dreams […]

This week, the CW’s first hit not born on the WB or UPN hit the 100 episode milestone. That all-important right of passage not only proves a show’s lasting appeal and lends it a bit more gravitas, it’s the point at which the syndication money  becomes a major factor (most shows sell their rights at […]

Cinematic Baggage and the Television Star
  Rachael Nisenkier

Sometimes it’s fun when your favorite TV star pops up in a movie (I know I got a little thrill every time I heard the erst-while Chuck’s voice coming out of Flynn Ryder’s mouth in last year’s Disney offering Tangled). And sometimes you find yourself wondering, “Why is McDreamy being so mean to Shia LaBeouf?” […]

One of my closest friends always tells me that the thing he loves most about me is that I define “cool” in the complete opposite way from most people. The generally accepted truth is that “cool” means something or someone popular, aloof and a leader of the crowd; “Cool” is the ability to remain calm […]

 It’s that time of year again. Flower prices are skyrocketing, restaurant reservations are hard to come by, jewelry stores are bustling and all around North America people are wishing that life were as romantic as their TV. So in honour of this most auspicious holiday, that of St. Valentine, I thought I’d revisit the issue […]

When I started Gossip Girl a measly five days ago, I expected a soapy, fashionable dramady. Thanks to Kelly’s enthusiasm, I also expected to like it. I didn’t know how much I’d love it. See when Gossip Girl first premiered, I watched the Pilot and found a barrel full of meh awaiting my troubles. None […]

Taylor Townsend  As played by the wonderful Autumn Reeser, this beautiful, controlling, caring and at times delusional spitfire is the best thing about The OC’s 4th and final season and is in many ways the saviour of the show. Privileged There is so much more to this show than the typical CW rich teenagers bit. […]

As many of you may know, my most recent long-term TV project was to finally get through a series that I had dreaded watching for years. Its run spanned all 4 years of my high school experience and in many ways, it defined the culture of high school at the time. The show I’m referring to is The OC. […]

Summer Roberts– she’s tough and feisty and independent and funny and caring and smart in ways that are not immediately obvious, and she loves Seth. I just finished season 3 and she may be, at this moment, my favourite OCcharacter. She’s the onion of the show. Big Brother Episode 28– “swim club”, “late night”, “Renny’s […]

Dylan Moran Known to most as the guy with the book down his trousers from Notting Hill, Dylan Moran is probably the best standup comedian I’ve ever heard. My friend Mack, who is often feeding me obscure comedy I don’t enjoy, forced me to watch Moran’s brilliant britcom Black Books then an hour and a half of his standup […]

OK, after a week off for a family emergency, I’m back and trying to make up for lost time with a double dose of weekly obsessions… Avenue Q I just came home from seeing the touring production. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time- go see it. The lead plays both Princeton and […]
