Hemolck Grove: Trail...

So I don’t know if we’re calling this TV or a web program or a DVD or something else.  My big question is, how are we going to organize our “to watch/read/listen” lists now that everything is split amongst a thousand platforms? In any event, I shall be watching this...

Glee: Season 4

FOX Premieres Thursday @ 9p There has been much discussion in the press over the last year or so about how “Glee” would be handling the batch of very talented graduating seniors as the story of this Ohio high school glee club went forward.  As the series returns this week, Rachel...

Fall TV Picks

This week was broadcast television’s coming out party in New York.  A slew of new shows were announced for the 2012-2013 season.  Some of them I can tell you right now, will be cancelled.  There are others, however, that I really cannot wait to see.  Such...

Jamie’s 30-Min...

  BBC America Premieres Tuesday 1 May @ 1p Seriously, the man does not sleep.  After tackling food by season and by country, Mr. Oliver is now doing his best Rachel Ray and addresses the issue of time by concocting full meals – wondrous weeknight feasts – in under 30 minutes. Of...

Veep

HBO Premieres Sunday night at 10p I don’t know how she does it, but Julia Louis-Dreyfus just keeps getting better and better.  She was enjoyable on ‘Seinfeld’ and she was what drew me into the series I never thought I would want to watch, ‘The New Adventures of Old...

Game of Thrones: Sea...

HBO Season premiere Sunday @ 9p ET When I received the first four episodes of the new season of “Game of Thrones” on my desk I basically had an apoplectic fit.  The wait and all the buzz have undone me, but I am happy to report that the return of the epic series will most...

Stevie TV

I was trying to find the Lindsay Lohan video to post because it’s BRILL-IANT. But this one is pretty darn funny, too. Check out new episodes Sunday at 11p ET or catch-up...

Psych

USA Network Wednesdays @ 10p I think it’s pretty important to watch grown-ups act like complete imbeciles sometimes.  Hence the USA program, “Psych.” In the winter premiere, the theme is pretty clear from the title “Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty...

The River

ABC Premieres tonight @ 9p ET Horror on television is becoming a bit of a thing.  It’s no small feat either, considering that those pesky commercials for Charmin and antacids tend to pull you out of the moment and let all the tension out of your living room.  But with “American...

Smash

NBC Premieres Monday @ 10p ET There has been a lot of hype surrounding the premiere of “Smash,” and with good reason.  After the success of shows like “Glee,” networks have been clamoring for more stories with music, fantasy and escapism – all of that grounded...

Luck

HBO Sundays @ 9p ET I honestly never thought I’d become a fan of “Deadwood.”  The mean and dirty characters and lack of indoor plumbing would ordinarily have sent me running for the hills.  Nonetheless, I gave it a shot.  I sat down and just started watching it.  The...

Touch

Special Preview Tonight @ 9p ET Series Premiere Monday 19 March @ 9p ET FOX Last Spring, there was very little FOX had to show for their new series, “Touch”, except for Keifer Sutherland’s face everywhere.  Now with a special preview airing this evening, we can finally get...

Royal Pains

Wednesdays @ 10p ET USA Network Let’s be clear, the main title sequence is terrible.  I don’t know what’s going on with that music and those graphics, but that ain’t the show we’re watching. There’s no doubt that USA has cornered the market on quirky...

White Collar

Tuesdays @ 10p ET USA Network Winter premieres of shows on basic cable are the reason I have no idea what time of year it is.  With all the half seasons and cliffhangers in weird places it can be most discombobulating. As we dive back into one of the best shows on television, Mrs. Suit has...

Alcatraz

Mondays @ 9p ET FOX I have no idea what’s going on.  Considering that J.J. Abrams is an executive producer, that is to be expected.  Creators Elizabeth Sarnoff (“Lost”) and Steven Lilien & Bryan Wynbrandt have created a series about 302 notorious prisoners from...

Downton Abbey: Serie...

PBS Sundays @ 9p ET For the ever-growing number of “Downton Abbey” fans (known for becoming completely hysterical at the simple mention of the show), it has been a long wait for series two, which picks up in the early part of World War I.  It doesn’t take very long for the...

Jamie’s Americ...

BBC America Premieres Tonight @ 10p ET/PT Jamie Oliver can’t seem to get enough of the US of A.  His newest series, “Jamie’s American Roadtrip” has him going to some unexpected nooks and crannies of the country to explore American subcultures that have endured...

Neverland

Syfy Sunday and Monday / 4-5 December at 9p ET Over the past few years, Syfy has branded itself with miniseries events like “Alice” or “Tin Man” – beloved children’s classics with a dark, science fiction twist.  “Neverland” is their newest...

Strike Back

Pay attention, kids: Cinemax’s first foray into the world of scripted series might be the best show you’re not watching. Sullivan Stapleton (ANIMAL KINGDOM) and Phillip Winshester (NBC’s short-lived CRUSOE) play a mismatched pair of special forces operatives in a secret...
