Fringe: Altered States of America

I was watching Fringe recently and thought about the on-screen weirdness that permeates the series. I thought about how most people view the show and think of it mainly as the next iteration of X-Files-ish storytelling, but realized the vast differences between the two. Without getting into the complexities of it all, let’s just say … Continue reading

Glee: The New Directions didn’t go breakin’ my heart tonight!

Looks like Glee is back to its regularly scheduled programming, and its refreshing. I’ve missed the competition within the New Directions. I actually prefer it over their competitions against other schools. Who cares about other schools? I want to find out more about these kids and what better way to accomplish that than watching how … Continue reading

Delicious Serial: Longform Storytelling on the Tube

Television has grown up in the last few years. It’s not a stretch to say that we’re living in a ‘Golden Age’ of sorts, in terms of quality TV. Almost every facet of production has risen to a level rivaling that of major motion pictures. After all, big thoughts require big wallets. The writing of … Continue reading

Glee: Bruce Springsteen, NSYNC, Baz Luhrmann and Gay Teen Suicide?

So, on top of looking forward to Gwyneth Paltrow and more of John Stamos, here are some exciting new rumors: Rumor has it, ex-*NSYNC’ers Joey Fatone and Lance Bass are campaigning for inclusion in a future episode. I mean they blew our minds with an ALL Britney episode, so OBVIOUSLY they should do an episode … Continue reading

Glee: Now we’re taking on existentialism? I approve.

What a commentary on organized religion in America. Bravo, Ryan Murphy. Finn is praying to made up deities, Kurt questions a religion that condemns everything he stands for. Rachel threatens her relationship with Finn and brings up a common issue within relationships – are the kids going to be raised in the Church? In a … 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

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
