Do you guys remember that quirky British comedy that came out around 2006, but didn’t really hit the states until 2008? It was called The IT Crowd and to anyone who was unaware about the premise of the show, maybe thought that the show was about an IT CROWD. Like the popular crowd. The new IT item. You know, that end of the social spectrum. Ironically, the show is about something completely different. It’s about the I.T. Department at a high end business with many levels to one building in London, England. And as you can imagine, the three main characters are quite awkward, and two of them are a bit on the antisocial side. Continue reading
Camp premiered last night (Wednesday the 10th of July at 10 PM) on NBC, and ironically the only reason my review wasn’t written last night after viewing it is because I had to pack for my own four day camping trip. Suffice to say you readers of mine won’t be getting any new reviews for a few days. Camp is an hour long comedy filled with outdoorsy and camp like tropes that make you wish you had the chance to be a camp counselor once in your life.
Yesterday a friend finally sat me down and forced me to begin watching Game of Thrones. Something I was avoiding because it was impossible to watch anywhere aside from HBO. And the fact that their DVD sets are outrageously priced. So there was a lot keeping me from this new cult phenomenon of a mystical world. I am currently 3 episodes in and I have to say, after a rocky start, I am ready for more Game of Thrones. Continue reading
So it’s been awhile eh? I feel as though the days of summer finally caught up with me and I became too busy to watch TV. Well there’s that, and the fact that I have been binge watching Smallville and I know for a fact you guys don’t want more thoughts on that. So today I decided to put Smallville away for a bit and watch the season 3 premiere of FX’s Wilfred. A brilliant little cable show that was created for American viewers off of an Australian show Wilfred. I don’t know much about the show down under, aside from the fact that the character who is the name sake of the show, is played by the same fellow, Jason Gann.
After watching Man of Steel on Monday, I claimed how the movie would be loads better if they just casted the same actors from Smallville into the film. Me being the stubborn bitch that I am, I decided to go back and finish the series. I never ended up watching the entire series due to conflicts (going to college and all can really eat up your nights) so I just kept buying the box sets telling myself I’d get back to it one day. Well that day was today. I wanted to start at season 4 (I left off somewhere in season 5 but wanted to backtrack) but began at season 3 instead because 4 is at my school apartment and I am at home for the summer. Pretty much a bunch of petty bull shit you probably don’t care about. Continue reading
Have you ever watched Steve Bryne the comedian? His stand up is hilarious. I recall watching him the first time when I was like 17 in 2007. I may have slightly fell in love with him. He may be my favorite comedian. So I figured I would give the new season of Sullivan & Son on TBS a chance tonight. Because the only other thing I watched was The Big Bang Theory, and do we really want my thoughts on that? Do we? No. we don’t so onto Sullivan and Son!
Going into the show, I wasn’t expecting much for it, but it did deliver some chuckles with it’s racist jokes, timing, and guest star, that Asian guy from The Hangover, Ken Jeong. It has a colorful cast of many drunks, whores, and one-liners that help round this un-original sitcom to into a tolerable state. Continue reading
I did a thing yesterday. I started that thing around 2:30 pm. I didn’t finish that thing until midnight. I promised myself I was going to work out after only a few episodes. I was being earnest too! Turns out it was just all a silly lie. I was a fool to think that I could stop myself from watching the entire fourth season of Arrested Development in one setting. A FOOL I SAY! But I don’t regret it. Not a single bit. Continue reading
Today I found myself watching something I had never heard of. Something different, something fun, something a bit raunchy and a lot gay. While visiting a friend today she introduced me to a television channel that I really must have in my life now that I know about it. Said amazing channel is Logo TV and that nifty hyperlink will take you to the homepage of Logo TV where you can watch full episodes of their programs. All of which seem to be edgy yet classic. Original ideas that are fit for today’s times. I feel as though this channel is the birth child of Perez Hilton and Comedy Central, with MTV and E! as the child’s god parents. And I love it.

Beware, this review is rated PG-13 borderline R.
Lets back up a little bit though. The first I heard about Hemlock Grove was when I decided to listen to my Pandora station a few weeks ago. They aired a commercial for this horror genre TV show that would be loading up on Netflix all at once. I was pretty excited, I never read the book which is what the show is based off of, but a new TV series that was done by Eli Roth? It sounded right up my alley! Continue reading
