Holiday Break

NTO is taking a holiday vacay! Between the devastating celebrity deaths, stale sugar cookies, and Beal's constant inebriation, we are just EXHAUSTED. I, for one, will be gorging myself on episodes of No Reservation, old Mad About You reruns and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (ugh, don't tell Tony about that last one), too busy with...

Brittany Murphy

There have been a lot of half-hearted tributes to Brittany Murphy, who died yesterday at 32 of cardiac arrest (apparently, natural causes which makes me want to go out and buy a treadmill, stat), and it's time to get something out there once and for all.

Anyway, here's a quick Round Up of the TV I've caught over the last two weeks and my thoughts because, oh, you are DYING to... Continue Reading →

The Six Degrees Challenge: I'm not going to lie. I am out for BLOOD. And I need to even the scorecard here. If Beal can get from Jack McBrayer to David Boreanaz in 2 TV degrees or less, she will be awarded 10 points. And if she can make the 2 degrees WITHOUT using McBrayer's current... Continue Reading →

Top Five Friday: Christmas Episodes

Ohhh The CHRISTMAS episode. Will it be heartwarming? Will it remind me of how important family and friends are? Will I learn that expensive presents and lavish parties should take a back seat to helping mankind? Or for once, will I be glad I'm not a fiasco/tragedy/calamity prone TV family whose belief in the spirit... Continue Reading →
