The Closer’s Moment of Goodness “In Custody”

Sometimes I forget how good this show can be and how much Kyra Sedgwick deserved that Emmy. I’m trying to catch up on almost the entire season of The Closer in time for tonight’s season finale. Wish me luck.

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 […]

TV Goodness All-Stars 2010: Matthew Fox & Terry O’Quinn, Lost

Count me in with the group of people who love, love, love Lost and feel satisfied by the finale. Part of what made “The End” for me was the showdown between Jack Shephard (played to perfection by Matthew Fox) and John Locke (the inimitable Terry O’Quinn). The battle royale that […]

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 […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Anna Torv, Fringe

I have had the pleasure of blogging this season of Fox’s Fringe, when the show took a bold, risky and creative turn by having alternating episodes in each universe (the Present and the Over There reality). In 2010, Anna Torv stood out with her nuanced performances of Olivia and Bolivia. […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Beth Riesgraf, Leverage

This summer, I decided to check TNT’s Leverage out despite the show starting its third season. I’m so glad I did. I quickly realized the series was fun, entertaining and the cast chemistry was electric. The guys were hot, the cases were cool and it all made me wonder why […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Gail Simmons, Top Chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts

I watch a lot of TV. There are shows I’m fanatical about and personalities I all but worship. My final pick is Gail Simmons. Part of me finds it hard to believe that I’ve chosen a non-actor as an all-star. Not only did I never really get or appreciate the […]

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: The Ensemble, Burn Notice

I watch a lot of TV. There are shows I’m fanatical about and actors I all but worship. My third pick is the entire ensemble from Burn Notice: Jeffrey Donovan (yes, he’s the lead but he’s also part of the ensemble), Bruce Campbell, Gabrielle Anwar, and Sharon Gless.

TV Goodness All-Star 2010: Candice Accola, The Vampire Diaries

This year, there were so many all-stars on the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, it was hard to pick just one. Michael Trevino stepped up big time in his transformation from troubled teen to reluctant werewolf; Nina Dobrev did an impressive job playing bad vamp Katherine and good girl Elena. Ian […]
