The Good Wife, “Oppo Research” Review

Let’s talk about Kalinda. There is plenty of other stuff that happened in the episode: Alicia finally went all-in on running for State’s Attorney, with Eli’s presentation of her opposition research drudging up all her family’s old (and new) secrets; a surprising lack of Cary Agos; Lemond Bishop, Super PAC leader; Grace’s church choir; Finn […]

My 2013 dream Emmy nominees

On July 18th, the Emmy nominations will be announced. Since we are mostly a TV website, I’ve decided to compile a list of dream nominees, which will, of course, not reflect the actual Emmy list because good shows and performances don’t get recognized like they should. This is a list of my dream Emmy nominees. […]

Video of the Day: Amy Poehler in a chicken costume

Have you ever wanted to see Amy Poehler in a chicken suit? How about clucking with Jimmy Fallon to fun.’s “Some Nights?” Watch this video as many times as you want because it will never get old. This is a nice follow up to The Chickeneers that Fallon did a few weeks ago with Poehler’s […]

Parks and Recreation: Two Parties

Last night’s episode marked a welcome return to the show that’s been off the air for six weeks. And what a happy return it was. “Parks” does the political part of the show so well, but it also shines away from the government offices as well. “Two Parties” brought us another party episode, and those […]

Some of My Favorite Television Episodes of 2012

A few weeks ago I posted my favorite shows of 2012, but now I want to list my top thirty favorite episodes from shows that may or may not have made the best of list. These are only episodes I have seen, regardless if I have seen the whole season/series. There are dozens and dozens […]

My Ten Favorite Shows of 2012

  It’s that time of the year again! The following shows aren’t necessarily the best on TV right now, but just currently my favorite. As I don’t have cable, I haven’t gotten to watch every show, so shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Mad Men” didn’t make the list because I haven’t seen episodes that […]

Parks and Recreation: Ron and Diane

Parks and Recreation makes me so happy. It’s just a fun, happy positive show. I love everything about it, but I really love the relationships. Especially the relationship between Ron and Leslie. Whether Ron likes it or not, the two are close friends. Leslie has always been protective of Ron, especially when dealing with his […]

Parks and Recreation: Halloween Surprise

I’ll talk about the entire episode eventually because it was the best of the season, but that last scene, you guys! I just want to squeal and cry and curl into a ball and rock back and forth because it was just so lovely. How good are Amy Poehler and Adam Scott? His wavering voice […]

Parks and Recreation: “Sex Education”

Parks and Recreation has felt a little disjointed this season and that could be because Ben and April are away in Washington, or because Leslie is still trying to figure out her new job. It’s not a bad thing, necessarily, but we are so used to seeing these characters together that something just seems a […]
