• Welcome.

    I’m finding that too many people are unable to watch TV without being metaphorically SUCKED IN. TV isn’t that serious, if you know how to WATCH (not look at) with a level of CONSCIOUSNESS. As an Assistant Editor at a publishing company by day, a TV Junkie by night, and forever plagued by my analytical nature, I truly hope to help dispel the ideology that WE ARE BEING BRAINWASHED BY THE MEDIA. Yes, the “Media” can brainwash you…if you don’t know how to watch critically and know the difference between ENTERTAINMENT and NEWS. Or, if you are unable to recognize subtle signs within a scripted TV show…or if you can’t tell when a “Reality” show is UNREALISTIC. I’m not an expert by any means, but as a Media Studies, Gender Studies & Journalism graduate, I hope to point out a few things about TV you maybe wouldn’t normally notice. I too hope to learn from you as well, so please participate!

Game of Thrones: Creation Through Destruction

Season 1 of Game of Thrones is over and I’m already going through withdrawal. From the fierce opening with the Night’s Watchmen facing the White Walkers to the closing moments of dragon birth, this season has been ten episodes of television magic. The season finale proved to be nothing short of awe inspiring, but before … Continue reading

Game of Thrones: Everything That Can Go Wrong…

It’s been a while since I’ve written about Game of Thrones, but don’t take that as a sign of disinterest. Each successive episode has intrigued me more and more. George R.R. Martin has created one hell of a world, full of characters, creatures and locations on par with Tolkien and the early Marvel Universe. From … Continue reading

Finale Fever

In the land of network television, the month of May can mean only one thing. Say it with me kids, ‘Season Finale!’ Good or bad, season finales are always an interesting proposition. The fact that a creative team attempts to encapsulate an entire season of plot lines into one episode is impressive. Unfortunately, the 44-minute … Continue reading

Over & Out: The Cancellations of 2011

The verdict has been in for some time for a lot of shows, but this week brought about a spate of surprising (and not so surprising) cancellations. It’s not surprising to see a lot of these shows on the chopping block. Across the board, this was one of the weakest television seasons of the last … Continue reading

Fringe: First to Last

Well, I didn’t expect that. A season spent jumping between universes ends with a trip forward in time. This is exactly what I love about Fringe. Like its predecessors, LOST and Battlestar Galactica, Fringe is not afraid to take risks in its storytelling. They look danger in the face and say, ‘Whatever, dude!’ And with … Continue reading

Game of Thrones: A Tale of Liars and Vice

* Note: If you are looking for House Sigils or  pictures of characters, feel free to click on the embedded links. How is it that HBO is so successful in putting out original programming? While the networks struggle to put out quality television, the venerable Home Box Office rarely suffers a misfire. In the last … Continue reading

Glee: We Are Shaking and Crying for Santana

Okay, y’all. Before I delve into the detailed epic-ness of last night’s episode of Glee (there’s so much to say!), will someone please explain to me why every time I’m not a huge fan of the musical numbers, the plot line blows me away? I mean, just ONCE I would like to be wowed by … Continue reading

Southland: To Protect, Serve…and Suffer

I’ve been watching Southland religiously since its debut on NBC. From the outset, it’s been one of the most well-written and beautifully acted shows on television. Unfortunately, I’ve been struggling to adequately sum up my feelings on the tone and direction of Season 3. This isn’t to say that this season has been bad. In … Continue reading

Glee: We Want To Be In a Kissing Booth With Blaine

All of these months of hiatus from blogging from the world of television came about because of my lack of inspiration. This came to a screeching HALT tonight after Glee rocked my world. First and foremost, can we briefly discuss the fact that although I usually am not a fan of Valentine’s Day…I LOVED the … Continue reading

Glee: We Can’t Wait for Kurt to Kiss Blaine…and More!

The moment all us Gleeks having been waiting for is upon us! The Return of Glee to Television this Sunday! And what a way to return with a post-superbowl extravaganza. Now we all know Glee doesn’t do anything small, so be prepared for some awesome numbers and choreography this Sunday! But what about the rest … Continue reading
