NBC's The New Normal is breathtakingly funny

I just finished watching NBC’s pilot episode of The New Normal. This show is absolutely hilarious. If the remaining season of the show is as fascinating as the first episode, NBC may have their version of Modern Family on the schedule. Of course, in my opinion, Modern Family quit being funny about two seasons ago.... Read more »

Friends: They were not there for my partner.

Friends: They were not there for my partner.
What does Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, Chandler, and Ross all have in common? Well aside from being the characters in the hugely popular hit television series Friends, they were, until recently, unknown to my partner. I was absolutely shocked when I became aware of this fact. While watching reruns of the show on WGN one... Read more »

Living without cable television: Two months later...

It has been a while since Kyle and I said goodbye to Comcast. In a post from May 14, I explained why we were giving up cable for Amazon Prime and Hulu. The basic reasons were just that rates kept going up. Add that to the fact that we watch less and less television, and we could no... Read more »

Living without cable television: Not as hard as I thought!

Living without cable television: Not as hard as I thought!
The hubby and I are trying something out for a while to see if we like it. It all started because we got tired of paying Comcast over $100.00 a month for background noise. Rarely did we use Comcast for anything other than noise, and when we did want to watch television, we normally watched... Read more »

The Revolution is canceled!

The Revolution is canceled!
I am a bit sad to report that The Revolution has been canceled. The show will end on July 7th. When The Revolution began airing, I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, about a month ago I quit watching. They were making changes to the show that left me unentertained and uninformed. I was obviously not alone in... Read more »

An open letter to Rosie O'Donnell: You failed, not Chicago!

Dear Rosie, How are you doing? I hope well. Sorry to interrupt your busy day; however, I had a few things I wanted to say to you. First and foremost, I moved to the Chicago area on January 1, 2011. It took me forever to get settled in. It is not an easy task to... Read more »

Yearwood returns to television with new daytime show, new album in the works.
For those of you who do not know, I am one of the biggest Trisha Yearwood fanatics ever. I have seen her in concert so many times, including once at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. I own every CD she has ever released, including singles and international albums. Her cookbooks even proudly have a place... Read more »

Disney misses the mark with Beauty and the Beast in 3D

First things first, Kyle and I got to experience the AMC Loews Streets of Woodfield 20 Theater. Let me just say that the theater is absolutely gorgeous. I was so impressed. To be honest, and a bit small-townish, I think it is the first time I have ever seen a two-story movie theater. Add the... Read more »

ABC's The Revolution: Helpful tips from too many hosts...

ABC's The Revolution: Helpful tips from too many hosts...
ABC debuted The Revolution yesterday. The new show is geared toward viewers taking control of their own life. The tagline for the show is “it’s about you.” Since I started my New Year, New Me feature last week, I thought that the debut of  The Revolution may prove handy to me. Though it is very obvious that the... Read more »

I'm a soapaholic! Saying goodbye to One Life To Live.

I'm a soapaholic! Saying goodbye to One Life To Live.
I have a confession to make. I used to be a soap watcher. Everyday, I would record One Life To Live. The obsession started while I was in high school. I remember setting the VCR every day to make sure it recorded my show. Once I became an adult, SoapNet came along. This made it easier to... Read more »
