Television hit a critical mass this year. Even as I entered my 15th month without a DVR, I still found it nearly impossible to keep up with all the good shows I kept hearing about, including shows I’ve been meaning … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 14 Dec 2014

NEW SHOWS Brooklyn Nine-Nine – “Stakeout” (A-) One of the problems of shows with gifted ensembles (this one, Parks and Rec, Modern Family, Community) is they’re too afraid to limit them by focusing on just one story. They must add … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 7 Dec 2014

NEW SHOWS Brooklyn Nine-Nine – “The Pontiac Bandit Returns” (A) Two stunners in a row. Craig Robinson absolutely kills it in his return as the Pontiac Bandit, but it’s the sight of Rosa smiling for real that warms my heart. … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 30 Nov 2014

NEW SHOWS The Newsroom – “Run” (A) I could make a strong case that this is the best episode the show has turned out thus far. Sorkin crams this episode with lots and lots of story, but makes every moment … Continue reading

What I Watched This Week: 9 Nov 2014

NEW SHOWS The Simpsons – “Simpsorama” (C+) Can’t say it’s any better or worse than that Family Guy crossover, but I did chuckle a few times. This episode seemed to be self-aware of how desperate it seemed. I probably would … Continue reading

Best of the Decade… So Far – TV

It’s hard to believe the decade is half gone already. In these five years, I’ve graduated from college, moved back in with my parents, struck out on my own, and gotten married. And I’ve consumed a ridiculous amount of pop … Continue reading

Summer TV Hangout 2014 Recap & Fall Preview

I didn’t watch quite as much TV this summer as I did last summer, and that’s probably a good thing. While I never made time for The Office (again) or season 2 of The Wire (that will come this fall), … Continue reading
