Feminists and TV

You might think this belongs on my other blog where I talk about geeky stuff, but I’ve really started to see this more in light of crazy feminists who only look at TV series in terms of the gender of the people they cast.  This whole thing came up as I was listening to a […]

Make Up Your Mind on Race

Okay, this makes no sense at all and I really want people to explain it to me.  On the one hand, you’ve got liberals demanding that we treat black people the same as we treat white people because everyone is equal.  I’m entirely on board with that because not only does everyone deserve equal treatment […]

Hobby Loyalty

I seriously don’t get the desire of hobbyists to have utter loyalty to the source of their hobbydom, even when that source is really screwing up.  I see this kind of fanatical devotion in a lot of hobbies, in fact, maybe in all hobbies, where people think they somehow owe it to companies or organizations […]

TV Thursday 10/25/12

Once more into the breech, my friends, with this week’s television offerings.  Lots of different things on the agenda for this week and luckily, most of it pretty good.  I really am starting to regret last week’s decision not to review “reality”-type shows because I saw a beaut this week that would have instantly gone […]

TV Thursday 10/18/12

Welcome to another week of television viewing pleasure.  I’d really like to see what other people think about some of the shows (or other shows for that matter), just to see if we’re on the same page.  I have decided to add a new feature to the weekly TV Thursday roundup, at the bottom I’m […]

TV Thursday 10/11/12

Not a whole lot on this week, lots of shows went on mid-season hiatus, others ended, so there isn’t a whole lot to talk about.  Unfortunately, not a lot is really changing either.  The good shows, in general, continue to be good, the bad shows, in general, continue to be bad, I don’t think there […]

TV Thursday 9/27/12

Every now and then, I do a few TV and movie reviews here and frankly, they get very little attention, mostly because I do them so sporadically.  I might do a review a couple of episodes into a series, then maybe revisit it once a season or so has passed and that’s really not keeping […]

Review: Sinbad (2012)

Sky-1 has come up with another interesting show, a retelling of the classic story of Sinbad in a 13-episode series that’s nearing it’s half-way point. The stories goes generally as follows.  Sinbad is a con-man and hustler who, along with his brother, fleece the marketplace.  When he accidentally kills the son of Lord Akbari, brother […]

Animal Planet Alarmism

I really don’t get into most of the shows on Animal Planet.  My youngest daughter does, mostly because she likes watching the animals, but she’s really gotten into all of the Animal Control shows for some weird reason.  Today, she was watching Swamp Wars, a show about the snake and reptile control officers in Miami.  […]

Where It All Went Wrong

I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows lately that I think have missed their mark.  Were it not so misused, I’d say they jumped the shark.  I’m only going to mention shows currently on the air and I don’t watch all of them, sometimes the show jumps the shark, right into the bonfire.  For […]
