TV in 2014 Roundtable: Best Individual Performances

Greetings! Welcome to the TV in 2014 roundtable. I’ve once again convened some of my friends to work our way through the year that was in television. I’ll be posting a few of these conversations the rest of the month, and you can find all of them here. Cory: Alright folks, let's move onto our second category—best … Continue reading TV in 2014 Roundtable: Best Individual Performances

Chitchat: Checking in with The Good Wife

I talk television with a lot of people. Friends, family, other critics on Twitter, vagrants on the street. I just love talking about TV. Because I don’t have the time and resources to do a podcast like I used to in college, I’m going to sort of replicate that experience in textual form in a … Continue reading Chitchat: Checking in with The Good Wife

Review: The Good Wife, “What Went Wrong”

I haven’t written much about The Good Wife’s third season. In fact, I’m pretty sure I haven’t done a single post on this season. My good buddy Noel Kirkpatrick and I deconstructed the first three or four episodes way back in the early part of the fall on the podcast, but with so much going … Continue reading Review: The Good Wife, “What Went Wrong”

2011 Primetime Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Drama Series

The 2011 Primetime Emmys are so close! September 18th to be exact.

To kick things off, I’ll be bringing back the Dream Emmy Ballot. It’s something I did last … Continue reading 2011 Dream Emmy Ballot: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

Season Finale — The Good Wife, “Closing Arguments”

After a season in which The Good Wife expanded its narrative scope dramatically (so much so, it's been rightfully discussed as the broadcast follow-up to The Wire), sometimes to its own detriment (let's just pretend that Hugo Chavez episode didn't happen, shall we?), it was kind of nice that the season finale dials things back and … Continue reading Season Finale — The Good Wife, “Closing Arguments”

Surveillance Spring Stumping: Why CBS should renew The Good Wife

It’s May, which means we’re very close to the network upfronts. Choices about which series live and which series die are probably being made right now by all the major networks. This of course means it’s time for fans and critics to start stumping for their favorite series stuck on the bubble between cancellation and … Continue reading Surveillance Spring Stumping: Why CBS should renew The Good Wife

Aimless Prognosticating: Predicting the Television Golden Globe Awards, Lead Categories

I feel like I probably know the answer to the primary question of this post. We all know that the Golden Globe Awards are a crock, especially when in reference to television. I originally wanted to write a post discussing whether or not it was worthwhile to even predict the outcome of the Golden Globe … Continue reading Aimless Prognosticating: Predicting the Television Golden Globe Awards, Lead Categories
