Deja View: Smallville’s Keri Lynn Pratt

Although I know not everyone is a fan (I’m talking to you Billy Patterson), I find Cat Grant just the right amount of annoying. I like the new dimension she brings to the Lois/Clark relationship. Even though she was introduced in the comics as a love interest for Clark, I […]

Halloween TV Preview Part 2

Ogres, vampires and zombies, oh my! We’re in the midst of Halloween Week and primetime television just loves to celebrate this spook-tacular holiday. Here’s Part 2 of the TV Goodness preview that highlights Halloween-themed specials and episodes starting with Thursday night programming. Think of it as Must-Scream TV. It’s the Great […]

Glee’s Moment of Goodness: Finn Finds His Confidence

I just caught up on last night’s episode of Glee. It seems to have people deeply divided. Although I had issues, I think they might be very different from most other people. Ok, it’s confession time: I’ve never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I know I know. I need […]

Guest Star Goodness: The Good Wife “Bad”

I think we’ve all heard a variation of the following: it’s all about the writing. And clearly the writing on this show is attracting the big guns. I’m impressed every week by the caliber of both guest and recurring stars but this past week has been the most impressive so […]

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 […]

Halloween TV Preview Part 1

There’s one week until Halloween and primetime television just loves to celebrate this spook-tacular holiday. This year is no different. I’ve highlighted some of the shows featuring a bunch of scares or Halloween-themed story lines. Let the creep-fest begin.

The Vampire Diaries “Plan B”

I imagine the employment agreement to work on TVD is a hysterical set of pages “Welcome! You will be employed for an indeterminate number of episodes, during which time you may be beaten, stabbed, flogged, shot or eaten. There’s also a possibility you may get to roll around with Nina […]

Moment of Goodness: Abed and Shirley make peace on Community

Community‘s a show that constantly makes me laugh. That’s what it’s designed to do and it succeeds big time every week. For example, the sitcom’s recent flight simulator adventure was hilarious. But apparently, Community also has the capacity to make me react in other ways too.

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 […]

Moment of Goodness: Sean Talks Family on The Event

I’ve been watching The Event sporadically but got sucked in last week when I realized the lead couple-in-peril, Sean Walker and Leila Buchanan, is played by Jason Ritter (from Joan of Arcadia) and Sarah Roemer, who starred in one of my guilty pleasures, Disturbia (it’s been on my DVR for […]
