Emeril’s Table Halloween Specials

Emeril’s Table Halloween Specials

| October 22, 2011

Emeril Lagasse pretty much launched The Food Network and was certainly one of the forerunners of celebrity chef television entertainment as we know it today. The man was so easily recognizable that he did ads for toothpaste using his very own catchphrase. He has had many TV shows and Emeril’s Table on The Hallmark Channel […]

Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy Season 1 Volume 1 DVD Set

| August 23, 2011

On The History Channel’s Only in America, comedian Larry the Cable Guy explores various American activities, events, and innovations. Many of the segments are based around activities you’d expect Larry, as a Southern “blue-collar comic,” to explore: a demolition derby, a rodeo, or mule breeding, but there’s also a pleasant amount of purely American, yet […]

2011 Emmy Nominations

| July 14, 2011

It’s Emmy time, Small Screen Monthly Readers! I’ll be real honest here: I don’t watch a lot of dramas, so my drama guesses are almost completely without basis; therefore I haven’t commented on them. But the comedy nominations have me very excited for the award ceremony. Here’s a list of the nominees: (I skipped over […]

So You Think You Can Dance June 23rd

| June 23, 2011

Well, I believe I owe an apology. When I wrote last week about the top twenty dancers, I may have come off as some sort of smug expert thinking I know the way The Dance fans vote and who will emerge as the likely victors. Last week’s result show proved that I don’t know anything […]

So You Think You Can Dance – June 16th

| June 16, 2011

Every summer my friend and I make it a point to watch So You Think You Can Dance (called “The Dance” for brevity and dramatic purposes) from the Top Twenty episode onward. We talk about dance and eat desserts and it’s very girlie indeed – all the summer fun, none of the mosquitoes. The Top […]

Hollywood Treasure

Hollywood Treasure

| June 16, 2011

This is not your average trash-to-treasure program. By now you’d have to be a hermit crab not to know what American Pickers, Auction Hunters, and Pawn Stars are. These are the most popular shows on cable, my friends. Who could have suspected Syfy of all networks to throw in the trump card and make the […]
