Top Five Fridays: Crossover Madness (Continued)

by Beal 5. Crossing Jordan and Las Vegas Cross in "What Happens in Vegas Dies in Boston" (2004) This is a prime example of NBC trying to boost ratings on two absolute B-list shows. Even I didn't watch Las Vegas, but as the one and only fan of Crossing JordanĀ I was admittedly a little bit... Continue Reading →


Top Five Fridays: Crossover Madness

by Judi Oh, the CROSSOVER. Jack Doneghy, I'm sure, loves the concept of the TV crossover being such a fan of things like "synergy" and "product integration", "pro-menz" (that's "positive mention" to you, little buddy) and "making lots of money." After all, what better way to get your TV loving public to excitedly clap their... Continue Reading →

Roseanne Barr? Arnold? Hitler???

by Beal I can't decide if this is entirely tasteless, or just classic Roseanne, but I never thought that I would have to mention Hitler on a blog about television, unless I was referring to what my old history professor (who also talked about Rin Tin Tin constantly) lovingly dubbed The Hitler Channel, a lame...

A Week Without You

You'll notice that there was no Top Five Friday last week. This was my fault as I was on the Jersey Shore last week with my family, staying at my aunt's beach house. Upon arriving, I had dropped my bags, let the dog run outside in the backyard and did what any sane person does... Continue Reading →

Next Time On DVD: Dallas Seasons 1 & 2

by Beal I recently developed a voracious appetite for late seventies melodrama and the only thing that satiates it, is Dallas. This epic prime-time saga, the Holy Grail of serialized dramatic fiction, ran for 14 seasons. I however, have only made my way through seasons one and two, whose 29 episodes and bonus features have... Continue Reading →

Ruby & The Rockits

by Beal Well, it looks like I'm a little late to the abc Family summer premiere season, and all the good shows were taken. Enter Ruby & The Rockits. A nice little sitcom about two former pop stars David and Patrick Gallgher (played by David and Patrick Cassidy, we'll come back to this) who haven't... Continue Reading →
