The Benefits of Directv Xtra
Tue, 09 Jan 2018 19:12:10 +0000

I know it’s hard to imagine for millennials, but there was a time in television history when there were only a handful of channels. If you didn’t like I Love Lucy or The Lone Ranger, you had to turn to radio for entertainment. Of course in today’s world, there are more Directv television packages than … Continue reading "The Benefits of Directv Xtra"

The Golden Globes are this Sunday. It seems like only yesterday when we were recapping the nominations. Time moves fast during the holidays. There are lots of things to love about the Globes, as compared to other award shows anyway. First off, it’s one of the few that celebrates both film *and* television. That means … Continue reading "Golden Globe Predictions"

January Television Preview
Tue, 02 Jan 2018 18:23:15 +0000

In our opinion, there are two types of people in this world: those who look behind, and those who look ahead. Okay, these sort of categorizations based on general characteristics are obviously ludicrous. That won’t stop us from making them. 2017 was, um, an interesting year – one that historians will undoubtedly study from a … Continue reading "January Television Preview"

The Best (and Worst) of Television in 2017
Thu, 28 Dec 2017 18:11:53 +0000

2017. To say it’s been a tumultuous year would be an understatement. This is usually the case during the first year of a new presidency, but it feels as though that 2017 was hit with an extra dose of turbulence. There were a plethora of major news events that would have dominated the news cycle … Continue reading "The Best (and Worst) of Television in 2017"

Just like with every year, December happened fast. It felt like Thanksgiving was only yesterday, but Christmas is already only less than a week away. For procrastinators who have yet to start their Christmas shopping, it’s red alert time (not that I, uh, know anything about this).

Shows That Lost Their Leading Actor
Thu, 07 Dec 2017 18:10:07 +0000

House of Cards is one of the most acclaimed shows of this decade. Not only is it one of the most acclaimed shows of this decade, it may go down in television history as a game-changer in film/television history, since it was the first show produced by a streaming service (Netflix, obviously). Despite waning fandom … Continue reading "Shows That Lost Their Leading Actor"

Olaf’s Frozen Misadventure
Wed, 06 Dec 2017 18:05:40 +0000

Back in the early days of cinema, it was pretty common for feature films to be preceded by a short film. This practice mostly died off in the 1950s, thanks mostly to the rise of television. In today’s world, it’s incredibly uncommon to see a short film before the feature starts; just a seemingly endless … Continue reading "Olaf’s Frozen Misadventure"

December Television Preview
Thu, 30 Nov 2017 17:42:43 +0000

December. For some businesses, it’s the busiest time of the year. Think any business related to toys, electronics, or retail. For other businesses, it’s the slowest time of the year. Speaking from my personal experience as a blogger, it’s historically a lot harder to get webmasters and publishers to open their emails this month. If … Continue reading "December Television Preview"

Even if you are only a casual observer of the news, you are probably well aware of the score of actors who have been accused of sexual harassment and/or assault. Kevin Spacey is probably the most famous example, at least as of the writing of this post. Spacey was fired by Netflix shortly after the … Continue reading "Showrunners Behaving Badly"
