Pilot Watch (sort of): ‘Terra Nova’

I was planning on writing a review of Terra Nova here on Big Damn Heroes, but I was asked to write a recap of it over at Film.com instead. You can guys can follow me over there, like, if you want to or something, I don’t know. I’ll be writing weekly recaps of Terra Nova … 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

Pilot Watch: FOX’s ‘The Good Guys’

“Boy, you wake up one morning and it’s nothing but lasers and robots and shaving where hair used to grow free.” Dan Stark – – – I knew almost immediately that I would love The Good Guys. I knew the moment I saw Bradley Whitford in that ridiculous moustache, from the moment that Foghat’s “Slow … 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
