The Big Bang Theory: Season 10

The Big Bang Theory: Season 10

| September 17, 2017

Let’s pause for a second and explore the fact that I’ve seen every episode of The Big Bang Theory.  It’s difficult to explain because I recognize that the show is deeply flawed in every way.  The characters are middling, the storylines are predictable sitcom fodder, and its portrayal of nerd culture is insulting to anyone […]

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

| November 11, 2016

For four seasons, The IT Crowd delivered consistently hilarious and surreal comedy for fans.  The series centers around two I.T. Professionals at a massive corporation in London: Roy (Chris O’Dowd; Bridesmaids) and Moss (Richard Ayoade; The Double).  The boys are completely content to laze around and play video games in between berating the employees of […]

The Unauthorized Full House Story

The Unauthorized Full House Story

| December 13, 2015

I haven’t seen enough of these to say for sure, but I think that made for TV movies about old TV sitcoms and the pseudo-drama that went down on set might be my new favorite film genre.  It’s a bit niche, but the ones I’ve seen have been bad movies at their absolute best.  Maybe […]

The Wonder Years Season Three

| May 26, 2015

Television can be a perplexing medium. Shows can range from high end quality (The Sopranos, Seinfeld, Boardwalk Empire) to bottom of the barrel drek (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jersey Shore). Some shows cater to specific age groups. Occasionally a show appears on the television landscape that brings viewers of multiple generations together. One such […]

CPO Sharkey – Season 1

| May 15, 2015

While I tend to watch newer TV shows or go back and watch stuff from within my lifespan, it is interesting to occasionally go back further and watch TV from an antiquated era.  I enjoy seeing how the world was different even if the world in question is being distorted by situational comedy.  Oddly, I’d […]

Created by and starring Greg Poehler, and executive produced by his sister, Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), Welcome to Sweden is about an accountant leaving his life in Los Angeles to move in with his girlfriend (Josephine Bornebusch) in Sweden.  What happens next makes for an extremely conventional sitcom pretending to be original because its […]

In the wake of Charlie Sheen’s nervous breakdown and being fired from his popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, FX decided to capitalize on this different type of fame by putting Sheen back on the air as an anger management counselor having a casual affair with fellow counselor Kate (Selma Blair; Cruel Intentions) and […]

Legit – Season 1

Legit – Season 1

| March 10, 2014

Legit is very much at home on the FX network.  Fans of their other original programming will quickly spot similarities to shows like Louie and Maron as all three series center on the everyday life of a stand-up comedian.  Here, our comedian is raunchy Australian Jim Jefferies, who I personally had never heard of until […]

Just Shoot Me – Seasons 1 and 2

| January 25, 2014

It was a real treat getting this set in the mail, and then spending the day taking a nostalgic trip with one of my favorite 90s sitcoms.  Just Shoot Me chronicles the everyday happenings in the offices of a popular fashion magazine.  Hard-nosed feminist Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo) goes to work for her father, […]
