We ask the difficult questions about Once Upon a Time (on ABC) and then delve into how technology is used in television these days in various ways. Our super upbeat featured song on this podcast is “Strangers” by The Rebel Light @therebellight Continue reading
Yes, I still watch Grey’s Anatomy. Are you surprised? If so, you’re not alone. (I’m looking at you, Rhyme et Reason Editor-in-Chief!) Although the number of fans may have dwindled since the soap opera/drama series debuted in 2005, I can’t quit Grey’s. I rarely have a long-term relationship with any TV show, but I have seen every drama-filled episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and The X Files, my first serial TV obsession). I’ve watched the show when it was at it’s best (somewhere around 2007 or 2008) and worst (2010? all the episodes blur together after awhile). The show still has … Continue reading Grey’s Anatomy, I can’t quit you.
Pat Sajack is host of America’s favorite game show, and he’s kind of an asshole. I’m not talking about how he admitted to hosting Wheel of Fortune while he was drunk. It’s his sober behavior that bothers me, a glaring minority of a viewer as a 22-year-old who tunes in nearly every night. Here’s why: He doesn’t believe in you Revel in your lucky moment of landing on the elusive $1,000,000 slot on the wheel for half a second because that’s how long you have until Pat reminds you that there’s “a long road ahead” to actually win it. Here’s … Continue reading Pat Sajack is a total dick
Revenge is dripping with soapy-ness; the murder, the mysterious newcomers, the underage drinking and drug taking, and, of course, an evil and rich villain all make it a really fun show. Emily VanCamp returns as Emily Thorne, who is actually Amanda Clarke. It’s all convoluted at this point but that’s what makes it so delicious. Revenge has returned from a hiatus of a few weeks, only to wrap up its first season on ABC and we hope it gets renewed. This show is ABC’s best hope for a replacement of Desperate Housewives, even though they seem to have put their … Continue reading Revenge strikes back
Meet Olivia Pope, a crisis management and PR specialist devoted to salvaging, rebuilding, and protecting reputations of the elite on this new ABC show. Pope, played by Kerry Washington, is a “fixer” and she’s damn good at it. She previously worked with the President until recently leaving the White House to start her own crisis management firm. She bails people out when they need her services the most. She doesn’t judge; that’s not her job. How can she when she has secrets to protect of her own? She may be good at protecting the image of others, but I’m not … Continue reading ABC’s Scandal Begins
Death is knocking at the doors of Wisteria Lane in Desperate Housewives‘ eighth and final season. Like the preceding seven seasons, death is a constant theme. In case you forget that neighbors drop like flies, the show Mary Alice Young, a neighbor who committed suicide before season one, reminds you as she narrates the show. Here’s a look at how many characters die each season on Desperate Housewives: The death tally was collected from wikia.com, which also shows that there were six deaths referenced before the series started and three deaths between seasons four and five during the “five years … Continue reading Desperate Housewives’ death toll ticks
