The break is over and TV is new again and there goes my free time.
Many people were in panic mode as 2013 closed and Netflix lost streaming rights to a whole slew of movies and TV shows. Now that 2014 is in full swing, this means a whole new set joins the streaming service. Continue reading

In this week’s American Horror Story, Cordelia tries to orchestrate Fiona’s death, and Fiona has never been a prouder mama. Continue reading
I admit, I was a pretty infrequent watcher of the show. I watched the way most people now watch TV, through YouTube clips, funny recaps, and even the lowest form of TV watching, gif recaps. But the announcement last week that Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell had been cancelled was pretty crushing. Other sites have more thoughtful and timely responses to the show’s cancellation. But, ven though I’m a little late to the internet news cycle, it’s important to continue to share shows like Totally Biased which was unappreciated in its short life. Continue reading

However, I am finally jumping on the Breaking Bad bandwagon after years of everyone telling me how wonderful it is. I want to catch up before the final episodes start to air this Sunday, which means I need to basically give up on sleep and life to get through it in time. Continue reading
NBC’s long-running sitcom The Office (available on Netflix Instant and Hulu Plus) ended earlier this year. Besides adding, “That’s what she said!” to the cultural lexicon, the show provided insight into just what it means to work in an office. . . especially if one is male (and preferably white and heterosexual). Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper), a character added in Season 5, shows us in ways Pam, Jan, Kelly, Angela, and Phyllis cannot just what it means to be female. Continue reading
Welcome back everyone! We’ve been on break for a little bit and if you’re like me, you spent a lot of time loading up on TV shows (and maybe also packing up to move across town). So, here’s a song for you:
The other day, I received the answer to my prayers (well, I at least received the answer to the question I asked last week). My co-worker was lamenting the lack of decent shows on television this summer, except for this one new program that just started on ABC Family called Twisted. Continue reading
