The Cape “Pilot” (Hour 1)

Vince’s wife is Jennifer Ferrin. She played Jennifer (as in Jennifer and Dusty) on the CBS daytime soap As the World Turns. She was also in an episode of Fringe. I like her.  Wasn’t that police chief in Alien Nation? Poor Eric Pierpoint, he wasn’t long for The Cape universe. […]

Back in November, in “Chirp,” Phil was going through a rough patch with his job. The clients just weren’t calling or they were canceling. He practically had a minor breakdown dealing with that; taking care of his sick wife Claire; and trying to silence a smoke detector that was beeping […]

Gold Stars: Modern Family “Slow Down Your Neighbors”

The hiatus is thankfully over for ABC’s Modern Family. “Slow Down Your Neighbors” was ridiculously funny, even as Claire went over-the-top in her war against the crazy unsafe driver terrorizing their neighborhood.

Here’s just about every scene that meant something to me during the first half of 2010, which happened to be Season 5 territory. There are a lot of little moments and awesome dialogue that I miss, but if I included everything, this thing would have gone on even longer. As […]

Deja View: Castle Guest Star Randall Batinkoff

First of all, wasn’t this week’s Castle great? The banter between Castle, Beckett and Natalie Rhodes was stellar. Det.

TV Goodness All-Stars 2010: Danny Pudi & Donald Glover, Community

NBC’s Community is an underrated, hilarious, silly, touching, well-acted series. It has a great cast; there’s no weak link in the bunch. The characters are strange, unique individuals but it’s when they’re together as a study group that magic happens. That probably sounds sappy, but it’s true. The show is […]
