On Background Noise

So Jon Stewart is leaving the daily show in August, but comedy central is being awesome and streaming every show he’s ever done (2000+ at this point) starting tomorrow for 42 straight days. http://www.cc.com/events/month-of-zen/live.html I can’t wait to see how long it takes me to get bored of having it on in the background. I […]

One Season Wonders: Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is a TV show by Aaron Sorkin. If you don’t know who that is, you are tasked with going and watching the entirety of The West Wing and I’ll see you back here in a few days. So looking for example video I can see part of why the […]

One Season Wonders: The Dresden Files

The Dresden Files was a short lived series on Sci-Fi back before they went even stupider than they were at the time (which was already pretty stupid). So in theory it’s based on the novels by Jim Butcher (Which I love), though there’s not so much adaptation decay as adaptation dissolved in acid and thrown […]

Televisual Treatise: 7 Days

One Season Wonders: The Middleman

The Middleman is a quirky show about a struggling artist who becomes a sidekick to the titular superhero, The Middleman. ¬†There’s witty banter and running gags and it’s a nice little monster-of-the-week style show. Overall, I think it’s worth a look, sadly it only got a 12 episode run.

One Season Wonders: Moonlight

Moonlight is a 45 minute show about vampires, focused on the single broody vampire private detective with a past who is in love with a mortal woman, so basically pulling straight out of the Angel playbook, but without all the interesting demon-fighty bits. At least it was real kill you dead vampires back when twilight […]

One Season Wonders: The Good Guys

So now that I’ve got the full time job, the 8 season TV show binges are a little beyond the scope of my free time. So I thought I’d go through some of the one season wonders, either cut down before their time, or those that got the axe righteously.¬† Our maiden voyage is The […]

The Return of Arrested Development

So Arrested Development is back, on Netflix, in what might either be the stupidest or most brilliant plan by uploading the entire season at once. On the one hand, it got me to sign up for the free month, on the other hand, because all the episodes went up at once, I have no intention […]
