The Goldbergs is a lot like The Wonder Years. Perhaps too much. Both have an adult narrator reflecting back on his childhood and take place during what is perceived as a more idealist time. For The Wonder Years it’s the 50s; for The Goldbergs that time is the 80s. Had the similarities ended there, The Goldbergs would be described as inspired by The Wonder Years.… Read more →
Had it not been for a pesky little thing called word minimum, this review would consist simply of several “OMG!” read in different tones of voice, with a few “awwwww!” thrown in to spice things up and one final, very loud, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW”. Courtesy of Rob Hanning (“Demons”, “Swan Song”) Castle’s sixth season premiere aired last night, in an episode that was choked with humor, romance and tension in spades.… Read more →
The patriarchal unit-named sitcom is actually the bad one. "Mom" isn't half bad.
I went into the series premiere of Mom with the lowest of low expectations. But I decided to tread on for my unquantifiable like for Anna Faris and Allison Janney. I just really want things to work out for them. And I don’t exactly know why, but I always walk away from a Faris project thinking she was better than the material she’s given.… Read more →
Just a quick review… Beware of spoilers!
I did something crazy and senior-y tonight, everyone. I watched CBS from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. That’s right, I watched it all: the one-hour How I Met Your Mother premiere, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, and the new supposedly miniseries thriller Hostages. (So if no one writes about the other series by tomorrow, I’ll step in with my thoughts.) And, you know what? Hostages ain’t half bad.… Read more →
I sat down last night at 8 p.m. to watch what I liked to call The Boring and Predictable Emmys. The Emmys are sort of an enigma: plenty of people who are quite worthy and buzzed-about are snubbed every year, people who should win never do, and you can probably guess with about 90 percent accuracy how the night will go down.… Read more →
My personal ramble about a solo movie for the Marvel villain
One month before Thor: The Dark world hits cinemas and after his sudden appearance (and success) in Comic-con, there’s talk about a Loki solo movie, with a petition in change.org that’s been signed by over 20.000 people. With the condition, of course, that Tom Hiddleston continues to play the character.
In the fandom worlds of tumblr there are strong opinions, for it and against it.… Read more →
For all of us Gossip Girl lovers (and love-to-haters), we’ve been following the news of the Spanish-language adaptation titled Gossip Girl Acapulco. The series premiered a few weeks ago in Mexico but has finally premiered here in the States. Though Univision was supposed to air the series in 2014, they’ve decided to accelerate it. Gossip Girl Acapulco made its U.S.… Read more →
Tomorrow is simultaneously the worst and best day for anyone who is a fan of television. You’ve got the penultimate episode ever of Breaking Bad broadcasting at the same time as the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. How could you ever choose? (Well, thankfully to DVRs, you don’t have to. But still.) And since the Emmys are kind of live TV Lovers’ Christmas, it’s only appropriate that we treat ourselves to some prediction indulgence.… Read more →
Can you guys even believe that The Vampire Diaries is about to enter its fifth season? That’s right, ladies and gents, our ever-high schoolers are about to enter the pre-”real world” as they become college students. We’ve been asking for that since halfway through season one, and it’s finally one of the things we can cross off our list.… Read more →
The first episode of the second season of The Mindy Project premiered last night and thank God! I’ve almost run out of Mindy quotes to use in everyday life, but after yesterday I have quite a few more to add to the collection.
The episode opens with Mindy and Casey in Haiti, with the rest of the gang back in New York.… Read more →
