Friday List: Television’s most undervalued series

This fall, I’d like to provide you folks with more lists than ever and hopefully that will result in a weekly or … Continue reading Friday List: Television’s most undervalued series

2011 Dream Emmy Ballot: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

It’s that time again, folks. The Emmy nominations will be announced on July 14, which means I have almost an entire month to flood this space with hopes, dreams and predictions about what could happen come nomination time.

Psych, “The Polarizing Express” and “Dead Bear Walking”

Anytime there are two new episodes of Psych in one night, that is a good night. And even though last night's double-shot, "The Polarizing Express" and "Dead Bear Walking" were not particularly great episodes of the series, there is definitely something interesting going on with Psych that I figured would be worth talking about a … Continue reading Psych, “The Polarizing Express” and “Dead Bear Walking”

After what I thought was a partially weak season premiere, Psych rebounded with two hotly entertaining episodes that remind us fans why we love the series so much. While both "Feet Don't Kill Me Now" and "Not Even Close...Encounters" were generally awesome, the best part of both episodes was the slightly increased focus on Gus. … Continue reading Psych, “Feet Don’t Kill Me Now” and “Not Even Close…Encounters”

As you hopefully know, I've been away for the last week or so, and for the last part of that trip, I was in San Diego for my first Comic-Con experience. Like I said in my return post, I enjoyed SDCC immensely. I had done lots of research on the event and asked questions of people … Continue reading That’s a wrap: Extended thoughts on Comic-Con 2010 and what series are buzzing
