Top 10 of 2010

This year has been an interesting one for television. 2010 gave us the finales of a few shows (LOST, Flight of the Conchords, Heroes) and introduced us to numerous shows of surprisingly high quality (The Walking Dead and Justified). As ratings plummeted in the wake of a shift to DVR viewing, networks are still slow … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: To Live and Die in Atlanta

I’m smiling ear to ear. I was somewhat leery of the trajectory that last week’s episode was setting up for the finale. All I could think of was a cliché-ridden episode in which we learn all about the origins of the zombie virus and the back-story of the outbreak. Images of the survivors being rescued … Continue reading

Fringe: Break On Through to the Other Side

Hey all. I’ve recently spoken to a bunch of folks who read my regular recaps/analysis of Fringe and, while they aren’t regular viewers of the fine show, they were eager to learn the back story that has led to events thus far. As such, I thought I’d preface my episode recap with a full series … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: Down Among the Dead Men

Opening the morning after the camp is invaded by a large group of zombies; this episode quickly lets us know that morale is at an all-time low. As piles of the dead (both zombie and former camp members) are disposed of, Andrea kneels over the lifeless body of Amy. She’s been there all night, standing … Continue reading

Cartoons & Leftovers

On Black Friday I realized that there was absolutely no way I was leaving my house. Bursting at the seams from all manner of savory delights consumed the previous night, I was hoping to stretch my legs and possibly pick up a few items at the mall. Upon watching the news I came to my … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: Safety in Numbers?

To be blunt, this episode of The Walking Dead was the first that didn’t grab me. It’s unfortunate because it was penned by series creator, Robert Kirkman. What also bothered me was the fact that I could see exactly where Kirkman was going with his emotional arc for the episode. All of the ingredients for … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: In the Family Way

The family is the nucleus of civilization. — William J. Durant Husband and wife. Father and son. Brothers and sisters. This week, the Walking Dead put family front and center. We were treated to the reunion of Rick with his family, while little sister Amy was overjoyed at the return of older sister Andrea. Furthermore, … Continue reading

Fringe: First People, Second Thoughts

The plot thickens…again. Fringe has been on its game the past two weeks with episodes that have  furthered character arcs, posited some crazy ideas and fleshed out the mythos a bit more. This week brought us closer to what might be some honest-to-goodness answers AND the resolution of something that’s been nagging me since the … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: No Guts, No Story

While giving us an episode that is a full 180 degrees from the amazing first installment, the Walking Dead dazzles with character development derived from action and suspense. I was nervous that this episode wouldn’t meet the high bar set by the first but, in some ways, it actually surpassed it. We got a fresh … Continue reading

RHOA: “Shut Up! That is SO Stupid!”

Today’s title comes from the lovely new face of Nene Leakes! I had to rewind my DVR and listen to her say it twice. Fantastical! I concur. Who delivers a baby early without complications? Babies are on top of  their mothers bladder, that’s just a fact. No doctor is going to remove a baby just … Continue reading
