I’ve never been able to watch an entire season of a show over the span of a few days, because my eyes start to cross and I get antsy (I think my limit is three or four hour-long episodes in a row).

Because there’s always room on my TV schedule for a fun summer show, last week I decided to tune into NBC’s new Hollywood Game Night, hosted by the always entertaining Jane Lynch.

For years now, MTV hasn’t aired music videos the way they used to in the early days, or even in the 1990s. Even when the channel aired just a few reality shows (The Real World and Road Rules), I remember videos airing in the morning, and of course during TRL and some countdown show with Simon Rex.

Last week, I wrote about the Writers Guild of America’s list of the 101 best-written television shows. I agreed with much of the list, especially the inclusion of The Twilight Zone. Realizing that I hadn’t watched an episode in a very long time, I fell into the rabbit hole that is Wikipedia and YouTube the other day while I was … Read More

Good television writing should be a given, but let’s face it; a lot of the programs on TV right now are not filled with wonderful dialogue. However, great writing does exist, and over the weekend, the Writers Guild of America unleashed upon the world its list of the 101 best-written series in history.
