Fall 2012 TV Round-Up: Mondays!

I haven’t done a Fall TV round-up in a couple of years, but I was sitting around watching TV and reading . . . something, and then I had an urge for list-making, and we all know how that turns out. The urge for list-making is so powerful it even trumps my other top two … Continue reading

Pilot Watch: “New Girl”

Listen, I’m as quirky as the next hipster twenty-something. I wear double-tongued Converse shoes and buy things like fabric printed with owls even though I DON’T EVEN SEW. I live in Austin, TX only because I can’t afford Williamsburg and Portland gets too much rain. The “You wear knit hats because of Coldplay” joke from … Continue reading

Bones 6X23 — “The Change in the Game” Live-Blog

For all your Bones live-blogging needs. Ahem. – – – I love it when shows take creative risks, especially shows as formulaic as Bones. Now, when I say “formulaic,” I’m not using it as an insult (in this case at least). Bones is first and foremost a procedural, and procedurals follow formulas. It’s why they’re … Continue reading

Bones 6X04 — “The Body and the Bounty” Live-Blog

“I’m sorry, I can’t share my murder plans with you.” Temperance Brennan – – – This is episode wasn’t bad, but it’s kind of a let down after the last three episodes. No personal stuff, or at least, fewer personal stuff, but it did have a fun guest star, and the last scene was kind … Continue reading

Bones 6X03 — “The Maggot in the Meathead” Live-Blog

“That is so random, yo . . . in the vernacular.” Temperance Brennan – – – I have to tell you, I was really skeptical that they could pull this episode off. Other than my avoidance of almost all things Jersey Shore related, I’m not really sure why. In fact, one of my favorite Bones … Continue reading

Bones 6X02 — “The Couple in the Cave” Live-Blog

“So it’s not possible for two people to overcome their differences?” “We couldn’t.” Seeley Booth and Temperance Brennan – – – Two weeks in a row . . . isn’t that some sort of record with me writing about Bones? Even if I do end up missing a week or two this season because of … Continue reading

Bones 6X01 — “The Mastodon in the Room” Live-Blog

“The question is, are you back?” Seeley Booth – – – Hey, folks, it’s been awhile. My life is on the fast train to Crazy Town right now, so it’s a miracle that I’m even here, basically. To give you a clearer picture of the situation, I have cut my TV watching down from twenty-seven … Continue reading

TV Round-Up: Best of 2009-2010

Once upon a time in Tucson, this idiot named Ashley decided it would be a good idea to watch twenty-seven TV shows a week while holding down two jobs and going to graduate school full time. It all worked out fine, I suppose. She didn’t mind gradually descending into the bowels of hermit-dom, only coming … Continue reading

Listed: Favorite Musical TV Moments, 1980s-Present

Sometimes FOX likes to do really super cheesy things, like forcing all of its shows to produce episodes that conform to a theme as promotion tool (I would argue that is actually less cheesy and ineffective than NBC’s lame attempts at environment promotion, “green weeks”). This is one of those times. Specifically, this entire week … Continue reading

A 100th Episode Cop-Out: ‘Bones’ 5X16 — “The Parts of the Sum in the Whole”

“I am not a gambler. I’m a scientist. I can’t change. I don’t know how . . . I don’t know how.” Temperance Brennan – – – I know I promised you guys a full-on recap, but I’m sorry. It’s not gonna happen. Up until that scene, I was fully prepared to do it, but … Continue reading
