TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Timothy Olyphant, Justified

As we close out the year, TV Goodness is taking the time to give a nod to our Rock Stars of 2010. We had a hodgepodge of new shows across every genre, but the trifecta of sci-fi, character dramas, and action-based dramedies was where my bread was buttered this year. If you read […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs

The last of my top five TV all-stars who gave me a happy in 2010, is Piper Perabo. When Covert Affairs debuted this summer, it was in cookie-cutter lockstep with the USA Network family. The network’s second female-driven drama, behind In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs took off, and on the heels of […]

TV Ties: The Social Network’s Armie Hammer

Yes, I’m totally late to the party on The Social Network. I just saw it last night and it deserves the accolades heaped on it by the National Review Board and I hope it gets more awards as Red Carpet season heats up. Usually at TV Goodness, we only do […]

The Vampire Diaries: Casting Klaus

So, TVD‘s Klaus is the BAMF that makes Rose and Katherine tremble and Elijah kill with impunity. Who should fill his formidable fangs? We can’t find anything to nail down Klaus’s age other than a reference to LJ Smith basing him on Rutger Hauer’s The Hitcher, so we’re going to […]

The DNR List: DVR’s Must-Save Episodes

Everybody who uses a DVR has to have them, right? Those episodes you just can’t get rid of because you want to watch them over and over again? Please don’t say it’s just us. Instead of negative news like unfair cancellations and those shows that have become so unbearable we’re […]

Renewals A Go-Go at CBS and CW

WARNING: THIS STORY WAS WRITTEN IN 2011. Ah, Nina (Tassler). Way to save face after the supreme goof of canning Moonlight in the spring of 08. Three Rivers was a bust, but she kept on, and thankfully Alex O’Loughlin is a savvy guy who stayed in the CBS fold, and […]

CW’s Fresh Direction

Television actors getting the opportunity to direct their shows isn’t a new thing—Syfy is very good about letting its Stargate and Eureka tribes take turns—but it’s commendable that the CW seems well ahead of the game in giving its (considerably) young stable of actors opportunities to helm their shows. One […]

Smallville’s Top Ten Most Memorable Episodes

Here at TV Goodness we’re big on Smallville and we’re celebrating the 10th and final season all year long.  But today calls for another Smallville celebration: the 200th episode.  For any show to reach 200 episodes is damn near impossible these days, and for a niche show like Smallville it’s […]
