I guess it’s time for my monthly update…

Well, I see that it’s almost the end of March, which means it’s been about a month since I last updated. Again. *SIGH* Let’s see… since my last update I have officially accepted the offer from Texas A&M, as well as been awarded a fellowship that increased the stipend I was already going to receive […]

My Fall 2013 TV Schedule: Cable Networks + Wrap Up

And now, for my final 2013 fall TV schedule post, cable network shows and a wrap up/summary of ALL THE SHOWS (and there are a lot). Now, it used to be that the cable network shows I watch (I tend to stick mainly with USA Network and SyFy these days) mainly confined themselves to summer […]

My Fall 2013 TV Schedule: The CW

This is my penultimate 2013 TV schedule-building post, and it’s about the shows I will be watching on The CW this year. One of these days I’m going to have to stop underestimating The CW, I think. Although they do keep making shows that meet my low expectations judging from the promos I see whilst […]

My Fall 2013 TV Schedule: FOX

Next up as I build my fall TV schedule, FOX shows. I officially gave up on Glee with very little fanfare and absolutely no regret after only a few episodes at the beginning of the 2012 season, so although it is for some unknown reason still going, I will not be going with it. Fringe […]

My Fall 2013 TV Schedule: NBC

Continuing my series of posts on the construction of my 2013 fall TV schedule, here’s my rundown of the NBC shows on my roster for the upcoming season. I was actually surprised by the number of new shows I’m planning on checking out on NBC, although most of them are midseason replacements rather than fall […]

My Fall 2013 TV Schedule: CBS

Next up in my series of posts on the construction of my 2013 fall TV schedule, CBS! I was somewhat disappointed to discover that CBS had decided not to pick up NCIS: Red after the backdoor pilot episodes that were a part of NCIS: LA this year, but upon hearing that their explanation basically amounted […]

My Fall 2013 Schedule: ABC

I’m not ready to talk about the Doctor Who finale yet (I’m still filled with far too much rage), or to write a coherent review of Star Trek: Into Darkness (still filled with far too many feels), so I thought I’d work through my yearly television schedule-building process. This is a complicated procedure I go […]

The “Moonlighting Curse” Curse (and the surprisingly easy way to avoid it) [repost]

[this is a repost of an article I wrote during my internship with Uloop.com] On March 3, 1985, a show called Moonlighting premiered on ABC. It starred Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd as Dave and Maddie, private detectives who ran a detective agency called Blue Moon Investigations. The show was a trailblazer – it represents […]

Doctor Who’s “Special” Problem

I started watching Doctor Who on June 6, 2007. I know this because I was a regular LiveJournaler in those days, and I mentioned it in my entry for that day. I didn’t have much to say about it – I’d only watched the first episode of the revived series, and I’d had a long […]

Kickstarter, Fandom, and Resurrecting the Ghosts of Cult TV Past

My Twitter feed and Tumblr dash exploded today upon the unveiling of a Kickstarter project to fund a Veronica Mars movie. Rumors of a cinematic continuation of the long-cancelled TV show have persisted since even before the show actually bit the bullet. The money, it seemed, never quite materialised, but apparently Rob Thomas never gave […]
