Game of Thrones Recap - The Night Lands
The second episode of the second season of Game of Thrones felt like more catching up with people, namely the folks we didn’t see much of last week. This week there was no Robb Stark or Jaime Lannister or Bran or Catlyn or Sansa. This week we got to see a few people who fell... Read more »

13 Questions About 'Breaking Bad' - Problem Dog
1. Is there a video game I can buy that makes the inside of my house light up like Studio 54 during a lightning storm?

True Blood Recap - In the Cold Grey Light of Dawn

True Blood Recap - In the Cold Grey Light of Dawn
  True Blood is still trying to make us care about characters and plot lines we’ll never care about.  I guess that’s our punishment for wanting to hang around just long enough to get a glimpse of Alcide’s pectorals.  Here’s what you saw last night: Sookie and Eric lying under trees, b-o-n-k-i-n-g: And Alcide saw...

'The Killing' Recap - Orpheus Descending

“Hey, Jamie, if you see the po-po, let me know.” As a fan of Lost, I’m a TV viewer who is familiar with not getting answers or, when I do get answers, getting unsatisfactory ones.  So, the end of The Killing last night, which provided a little of both, didn’t throw me into the depths...

'The Killing' Recap - I'll Let You Know When I Get There

Well.  It looks as if my season-long belief that crazy Wormtail-like Belko would wind up being the killer has been murdered, just like Rosie Larsen so many weeks ago.

American Idol Recap - A Baker's Dozen of Mildy Talented Karaoke Singers

A few notes before we get down to business: 1. Apparently the IdolDome stairs are not as steep as previously believed.  I no longer hold my breath every time that sweet little moppet, Ryan Seacrest, saunters down them.  Thank you, new 360 degree camera view! 2.

American Idol: The New Class

Last night was the season premiere of the tenth season of American Idol on FOX.  I had (OK, still have) lowered expectations going into this season.  I’m not a big gushing fan of either Jennifer Lopez or Steven Tyler (I blame her entire oeuvre for my feelings on the former and hearing “Jaded” on the...

'The Walking Dead' Recap - 'Tell It to the Frogs'

The band is all back together!  Well, almost.  Merle Dixon was still surviving up on the roof of the department store, getting religion, and then losing it while watching the zombies try to break their way through the chained and padlocked door as Merle attempted to reach the handy tools that had been left behind...

15 Questions About Mad Men - "Tomorrowland"

1. OK.  Gloat.  Get it out of the way. Ha!  Right?  Well, friends, in the end, this season of Mad Men was leading not up to Conrad Hilton riding in on his Disney-issued horse to save SCDP, Roger (or Sally or Lane) committing suicide, or Peggy and Don hooking up.  Nope.  This season was leading...
