Senior Writer/Columnist: Heather began writing about TV way back when Jensen Ackles was Alec on Dark Angel (so, “dibs!” EDITOR NOTE: “No dibs!”). She never got on the reality bandwagon. Instead, her TV viewing must be scripted—she’s intensely loyal to actors, writers, and directors and loves comedy, drama, suspense, and sci-fi equally. If it was filmed in Vancouver (or Canada, really), she’s going to be all over it. Don’t look for snark. If she’s made the time to watch it, she likes it (or loves it), because life’s too short to watch sh-tty TV. But she will call BS when it’s right there for the taking. By day, she writes marketing communications for the IT sector. She’s a lifelong Texan (minus the pre-K years), so you’ll have to accept the liberal use of “y’all.” You can follow her on Twitter at @approximofnice.

Taboo Preview: Episode 2

[Warning: General spoilers ahead] Y’all already know that casting is a key indicator for me about whether I’m interested in committing to a new show. FX’s Taboo was immediately intriguing because Tom Hardy attached to it not only as the lead, but also a creator and producer (alongside his dad, […]

Endings and Beginnings in Eyewitness “Mother’s Day” + Jennifer Coté Commentary [Exclusive]

I’m going to tell y’all a dirty little blogger secret. I’m not always able to go back and watch episodes live after I’ve pre-screened them for my preview. Eyewitness was one of those exceptions where I made damn sure to watch and live Tweet every week because it’s just been […]
