Paradise Found (or Lost) - Burn Notice

Paradise Found (or Lost) - Burn Notice
A glance at the TV ratings for August 1 -7 (courtesy of Entertainment Weekly) shows that seven of the top ten shows that week were reality programs, two were drama reruns (NCIS and NCIS:Los Angeles) and one news magazine (60 Minutes, again a rerun.) It’s hard to believe that the supposedly rich and well to... Read more »

Paradise Found - Monday Morning QB

Paradise Found - Monday Morning QB
I caught two movies over the weekend, a rare treat.  They included “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” which I co-wrote a review with David Schuster, and “Friends With Benefits” reviewed by David last month.  The Mila Kunis – Justin Timberlake romantic comedy was a real laugh out loud comedy from Will Gluck, who...

Paradise Found - Entourage Returns

Paradise Found - Entourage Returns
This particular column (on Booth Reviews) got it’s start in life as a blog about the show “LOST” as Paradise Lost. It subsequently morphed into “Paradise Found” as outlet for comments and recaps of CBS’s reboot of “Hawaii Five-O.” I even added snippets about the one and done ABC show “Off the Map.” Since Five-Oh...

TNT Cancels "Men of a Certain Age"
Sad news from the tv department.  One of the best summer dramedies got it’s pink slip after only two years on the job. According to THR, a Turner network statement noted, “While the show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances, the audience simply hasn’t built to the point where we can continue the series.”...

Reporting Live from your nearby Starbucks
We are so dependent on modern technology, that when we lose some aspect of it, we are somewhat helpless.  That is, until you realize there is a workaround. Late yesterday, we lost our Internet connection.  Even though we only lost power for a few minutes earlier Monday when the storms hit, suddenly at about 5... Read more »

A Good Reason to Watch "The Voice"

A Good Reason to Watch "The Voice"
Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that I have never been a proponent of reality television.  Every hour of programmed reality keeps drama or comedy off the airwaves.  Casey Weston These days the networks seem so skittish, that they would pull the plug on anything that isn’t a immediate ratings grabber.  I hate to...

For Father's Day, My 11 Favorite TV Dads

On Mother’s Day, I posted my choices of 11 Favorite TV Moms, so it seemed that TV Dads would be appropriate today. (I almost switched to something about Clarence Clemons but penned this tribute on my SethSaith blog and invite you to read it if interested.) Some of the most famous television fathers were a...

TV Review - Franklin and Bash

TV Review - Franklin and Bash
Meyer and Gosselaar This critic finally got around to watching TNT’s new legal dramedy (half drama – half comedy) about a couple of street lawyers with some rather unorthodox courtroom tactics, and I must admit, it was rather funny. It seems to be a bit of a hybrid between Ally McBeal and LA Law. Jared... Read more »

Goodbye (for now) to The Good Wife

I finally got around to watching the season finale of “The Good Wife.” Thank goodness for DVR’s.  Between covering sporting events and late night studio time, most of my network tv watching (except for sports) is time shifted.  It is also so much easier to watch a show when you can zip through an hour...
