Jersey Shore: Japan says “Arigatou!” We SMH, yet keep watching?

According to CNN, MTV Japan will be airing Jersey Shore in Japanese. This is news to me, but apparently it was announced back in March. The most RIDICULOUS part is, since Japanese audiences wouldn’t understand the New Jersey stereotype like we do, they’ve changed the title, which translates in English to the “Macaroni Rascals”. LMAO. … Continue reading

The Good Wife: Alicia Florrick, Superwoman

This post is the first in a series highlighting SUPERWOMAN TV characters. These characters are not afraid to channel their feminine power to get ahead in their careers and kick ass on a consistent basis without becoming a female stereotype. You know the type, no intelligence, and solely sleeping with their bosses to move up … Continue reading

Law and Order: California Love?

After last week’s two episode season premiere of Law and Order: SVU, I’m so excited for tonight’s episode. Law and Order always has a way to make you think you know what’s going to happen but then delivering a plot twist at the most unexpected moment. It may seem like an obvious thing to point … Continue reading

Entertainment News: Show cancellations, What’s next for Glee

According to E! News Online, Fox’s “Lone Star” is out, after only two episodes. Starring Jon Voight (Angelina Jolie’s estranged father, and critically acclaimed actor) and James Wolk, “Lone Star” apparently didn’t get the ratings it needed to satisfy advertisers and Fox executives. Did anyone watch this show? I know one of my best friends … Continue reading

Glee: She’s so lucky, she’s a star.

I think this was the best episode in the history of Glee. Ever. EVER, EVER, EVER. Although it was done in a totally ridiculous way, they managed to successfully include five of Britney Spears’ chart topping hits: Slave For You, Me Against the Music, Hit Me Baby One More Time, Stronger and Toxic (did I … Continue reading

Glee: It’s Britney, Bitch!

I woke up this morning and got excited for tonight’s Brittany/Britney episode of Glee. Poor Brittany (Heather Morris) is just a dim-witted, blonde cheerleader to us so far. TONIGHT SHE GETS TO SHINE AND I CANNOT WAIT! Her one liner delivery is hilarious and its about time we see her star in one or two … Continue reading

House: “Elementary, my dear Watson!”

House (Fox) is arguably one of the smartest written characters on TV. The show itself is very well written, but I can’t name any other TV character as complex and as multi-dimensional as Dr. House. We’ve seen him through a drug addiction, a love triangle, relationship troubles with his best friend, and a rotating support … Continue reading

My Homework: Week of 9/26/10

I have a proposal for you. When watching TV, try engaging in it as homework. Perhaps if we take part in pop-culture– in this case TV– maybe we’ll begin to watch from a more critical standpoint. Here’s what I’ll be watching this week (in descending order from what I feel to be well-written shows to … Continue reading

Grey’s Anatomy: Have they “Jumped the Shark”?

Grey’s Anatomy is one of those shows where I can give them chance after chance after chance to redeem themselves after horrible storylines just because I remember the good times. It’s kind of like an abusive relationship at this point…I’m starting to get hip to their game, and I’m not sure if I can take … Continue reading

Glee: Why I Can’t Deal with Artie.

This past Tuesday night, I was raging about Artie on my other site. Quite frankly, Glee has to be one of the most progressive shows about High School on TV. They cover various social hot-button issues, in a satisfying way. They give their characters agency, and make some draw some pretty striking conclusions about society … Continue reading
