TV Ties: The Cast from 1983’s The Outsiders

Matt Dillon guest-starred on ABC’s Modern Family this week as Robbie Sullivan, Claire’s ex-boyfriend and her mother’s current boy toy — for a hot second that is. That got me thinking about my absolute favorite Matt Dillon movie and that’s 1983’s The Outsiders. The S.E. Hinton book and the movie […]

Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural Convention: Traci Dinwiddie and Richard Speight, Jr., Day 2

SESSION TWO: TRACI DINWIDDIE (PAMELA) AND RICHARD SPEIGHT, JR. (TRICKSTER/GABRIEL)   These two gave great panel, I have to say. It kicked off with a Traci and friends African drums performance; at one point she actually did a bit of African dance. It was pretty awesome. Once we got to […]

Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural Convention: Jim Beaver Session, Day 2

On Saturday, February 12, I attended Day Two of Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural convention in Los Angeles. I have been to Supernatural-related events before, like Comic-Con (where I covered the press room for TV Guide Network) and the Season One Paley Fest event.  But, that’s it. I’d never been […]

Celebrating NCIS: TV’s Number One Scripted Show

Wednesday, February 2, 2011, was a great day for fans of NCIS for three reasons: 1) It was announced the show’s star, Mark Harmon, inked a two-year deal that ups him to executive producer; 2) CBS renewed the show for a ninth season (I know, not a shocker at all); […]

TV Trend: For the Love of Boats

I finally got the chance to watch the pilot for USA Network’s thoroughly engaging new series, Fairly Legal. I couldn’t help but notice the lead character, Kate Reed, lived on a boat. That got me thinking about the TV shows and characters over the years that had some sort of […]

Happy Birthday Buffy! Buffy Turns 30!

CNN Geeks Out with a story about Buffy Summers, the title character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, turning 30! Can you believe it? We think the WB (and UPN) show definitely qualifies as TV Goodness. After all, she did save the world. A lot. And continues to do so in […]

Ratings All-Stars: Week of January 10th

A ratings juggernaut tops itself; a canceled comedy returns to the airwaves and scores big; and in the dead of winter, a spray-tanned reality show heats things up Jersey-style. Here are the three ratings all-stars for the week of January 10th. 1. NCIS, CBS

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance

I watch a lot of TV. There are shows I’m fanatical about and personalities I all but worship. My bonus pick is Cat Deeley. I thought I was done, but a friend reminded me that Cat deserves to be an All-Star. I think my problem is that if the show […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Jensen Ackles, Supernatural

Contemplating my All-Stars for 2010, one of my first thoughts was Jensen Ackles of Supernatural. Say what you want about Season 5, and I’m aware of the mixed reviews for the ending of the season, Ackles’ performances were rock solid. I’ve enjoyed him in other roles but as Dean Winchester, […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Matt Smith, Doctor Who

I have to admit that I’m very new to the Doctor Who universe. I started watching with the 9th Doctor, played by Christopher Eccelston, and then the 10th Doctor, David Tennant. I truly enjoyed Tennant’s performance as the Doctor, but as we all know, he left the show. I wasn’t […]
