Roseanne – Still Relevant and Entertaining!

Roseanne – Still Relevant and Entertaining!

| November 12, 2012

I must admit, reviewing the Roseanne show, Seasons 3 and 4, has been one of my favorite assignments thus far. Every episode is a delight, whether it’s on the light- hearted or the more dramatic side. She’s loud, she’s brash, she’s strong, she’s Roseanne Barr (Arnold)! Starring in the self- titled sitcom from 1988- 1997, […]

Lost Girl: Season One

Lost Girl: Season One

| October 23, 2012

If Joss Whedon is a geek god, then consider Michelle Lovretta a disciple of his work, with her creation of Lost Girl. At first, it may look like Lost Girl is attempting to emulate Buffy’s formula, but don’t let it fool you for one minute. The series stars Anna Silk as Bo, a succubus that […]

Mad Men – Season 5

| October 16, 2012

I jumped at the opportunity to review the fifth season of Mad Men because I knew I would be forced to finally ask myself a crucial and life-altering question:  Why do I like Mad Men?  I’m sure there are many people out there who have specific reasons for tuning in to the AMC smash hit […]

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes – 2 Miniseries

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes – 2 Miniseries

| September 21, 2012

Steven Moffat has ruined me for Sherlock Holmes media.  His TV series Sherlock is the yardstick by which all future exposure to the great detective will be measured.  So, digging into these old Christopher Lee miniseries, I couldn’t help but wonder how Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman would handle these cases.  Fortunately, the cast here […]

Grounded For Life – The Complete Series

Grounded For Life – The Complete Series

| September 18, 2012

First, let’s talk about the show itself.  I vaguely remember Grounded for Life being on the air, and I’m pretty sure I caught a couple of episodes but never really got into it.  The premise is simple enough:  An Irish catholic couple (Donal Logue and Megyn Price) living in New York with their three kids […]

Dark Shadows: Fan Favorites and The Best of Barnabas

| May 8, 2012

In an attempt to capitalize on the buzz surrounding Tim Burton’s take on Dark Shadows, the cult classic TV series is finally being made available in its entirety. While I cannot speak definitively on the Burton and Depp collaboration, which looks like Addams Family Redux, I can say with some certainty that those looking forward […]

Bob’s Burgers The Complete 1st Season

Bob’s Burgers The Complete 1st Season

| May 1, 2012

There’s a new restaurant in town, and its original menu included Soylent Green. Don’t’ believe me? The first clue is that Loren Bouchard’s family-centered animated workplace comedy launched with an episode titled “Human Flesh.” And the funeral home is right next door. Coincidence or convenience? Hmmmm. Of course that inaugural episode of Bob’s Burgers said […]
