Dad’s Home, June 19 On Hallmark Channel

Dad’s Home, June 19 On Hallmark Channel

| June 19, 2010

I wouldn’t say this is a new theme, as it seems the way to set up drama surrounding a father is often to show him doing it all on his own after the death of his wife. That’s what we have here with Hallmark’s Dad’s Home, except the twist on this is at the beginning […]

Starstruck

| June 10, 2010

I have a guilty pleasure to confess to. I enjoy the occasional Disney movie, and also like certain Nickelodeon fare such as iCarly. Sometimes I watch this stuff and roll my eyes, yet other times I can completely enjoy it. Maybe not as much as my teenage daughter, yet I still enjoy it. The girl […]

Neighbors From Hell, Premiering June 7 On TBS

| June 7, 2010

Most of us have had our share of Neighbors From Hell. In fact my sister used to tell me she thought the house my husband and I first lived in was built on an ancient burial ground because of the two suspected child molesters, 4-year-old boy that started a fire in his home, and the […]

Interview With Kate Lang Johnson of NBC’s Persons Unknown

| June 7, 2010

Sometimes when I’m interviewing someone, my kids could absolutely care less. Yet other times, it makes me their hero to know that I’m talking to someone that is cool in their eyes, so that then makes me just as cool, or almost just as cool. I had the chance to speak with someone this week […]

Billy Owens and the Secret of the Runes

I wish I had better news to report with this one. I had great hopes for it and was eager to watch it with my son. Sure, he’s 17 years old, but loves fantasy fiction, reading all the Harry Potter books the first day they came out, even before they started releasing them in movies. […]

Alice In Wonderland

Alice In Wonderland

| June 6, 2010

It hit me while watching the latest version of Alice In Wonderland that I’ve never really seen the movie or read the story. How can that be? Yet, I know the characters, mostly just from Disney references I assume. Because of that, I had nothing to compare it to, although I knew there would be […]

Royal Pains, Season Premiere, June 3 On USA

| June 3, 2010

Royal Pains ended last season with some great cliffhangers, ones that I’ve been waiting months to find out how it was all going to turn out. I had a half answer to one of them a few months ago with the casting news for this season, but in many ways that just made me more […]

Burn Notice, Season Premiere, June 3 on USA

| June 3, 2010

Michael Westen somehow has pulled through another mess. At the end  last season he was kidnapped yet again, leaving Fiona, Sam, and Maddy to clean up his mess. Somehow in the first episode of season four of Burn Notice, he comes out clean again. The problem is, the storyline is getting too convoluted unless you […]

| June 2, 2010

There’s nothing wrong with following a formula for success, but sometimes you can follow it too much to where it just becomes old hat. The new series Are We There Yet? on TBS is following two past modes for success, the movie by the same name that the series is based on, along with the […]

Ghost Hunters International, Season 1: Part 1

Ghost Hunters International, Season 1: Part 1

| June 1, 2010

There are a lot of ghost hunting and paranormal TV series out there right now, and what separates this one form the others is the obvious. It’s Ghost Hunters International. They’re not checking out haunted homes and old buildings around the U.S.; they’re checking out old castles, famous old castles throughout Europe. It’s that interesting […]
