Week 4 for “Nurse Jackie” is a mixed bag. On the one hand, it’s not trying as hard as it was in the first couple of episodes, which I mean as a good thing. It’s less forced. On the other hand, I can already see it running the risk of getting boring.
Number 13 is up, and is one of only five sitcoms (and the only not on a premium channel).
Better Off Ted
The show: “Better Off Ted“ Synopsis: Ted is the head of Research and Development for one of the largest corporations in the country. He deals with zany scientists, a crazy boss, and [...]
The 14th best show is something of an anomaly in that the pilot was released this spring, but the rest of the series will not air until next fall. With just one episode to judge, it probably got docked a few points. Looking purely at potential, we could have put it a few spots higher. [...]
We’re back with Number 15, which happens to be our only animated offering of the year.
The Life & Times of Tim
The show: “The Life and Times of Tim” Synopsis: Tim is a normal guy (for a cartoon), who finds himself in many an awkward/inappropriate situation. It’s kinda like an animated “It’s Always Sunny [...]
We’re constantly getting new (and in some cases improved) Game of Thrones casting ideas. (Check the original here.) Some are from shows we’re watching now, and some are awesome suggestions from our readers. Here are a few:
Stannis Baratheon – Colm Feore
Feore was suggested by a [...]
It’s week three, and Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” is starting to settle in a bit. This week’s episode was a little less eventful (after the first two weeks it almost had to slow some), but it did pack some laughs. The only major development plot-wise – Jackie’s lover, Eddie the pharmacist, may soon be replaced by [...]
Here’s a recipe for braised bullshit movie: one 12 oz. can of David Fincher’s “Se7en” (Up), one leg of “Silence of the Lambs“, and two squirts of pure Quaid sweat. (This recipe calls for Dennis. Randy is an acquired taste. Little gamey.)
Reminds me of that movie… Hook.
Yep. “Horsemen” is a blatant “Se7en“/”The [...]
The countdown continues with another piece o’ poo from Fox. “Lie to Me” is Fox’s “The Mentalist” imitation, hoping to ride the quirky procedural formula to similar ratings success. (To be fair, ABC did also come out with something of a “Mentalist” rip-off this spring in “Castle,” which is a little higher up in our [...]
The Final Countdown. Over the next 17 days we will unveil our rankings for the new TV shows we tried out over the 2008-2009 TV season, starting with the shit sandwiches and working our way up to the filet mignon. (To simplify, we decided to not consider shows that have already been canceled.)
