T5F: Shows You Can’t Miss Now

5. Ten Days in the Valley ABC Premiers 10/8/2017 Okay, so I haven’t seen this show yet, but I’m really excited about it. I like Kyra Sedgwick and I LOVE (don’t judge me) mystery novels with female leads who have no business investigating a murder or missing person, but go rogue and do it anyway,... Continue Reading →


Review: The Orville

Synopsis: Four hundred years into the future, 40 year old Ed Mercer (Seth McFarlane) finally gets to captain his own space ship. Rating: 4.5 Stars (out of 5 stars) Reason: This show, which looked absolutely ludicrous in the trailer, is actually pretty solid. A science fiction comedy drama, the hour-long show certainly sounds original, but... Continue Reading →

T5F: Shows that I Just Can’t

  Walking Dead AMC 2010 – present Let me begin by saying, genre-wise this show just isn’t going to attract me. I can appreciate a good [read: bad] horror movie or ten around the Halloween season, but I just can’t get into the zombie fad. I guess I don’t think they are interesting, or that...

T5F: Favorite Cult Shows

Honorable Mentions: The Comeback. The X-Files. 5. Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job I was in the right place at the right time when this show came out.

T5F: Shows that Surprised Me

5. Joe Schmo 2 What is this show, you ask? I’ve never heard of it, you say? That’s because it doesn’t really deserve any attention from anyone. . . or does it? A few years ago a friend of mine brought the dvd set of Joe Schmo 2 over to my house. I thought, “Oh... Continue Reading →

T5F: Best Animated Shows for Adults*

*exclusing The Simpsons 5. The Drinky Crow Show, Adult Swim/Cartoon Network 2007-2009 I don’t really even know how to describe this show. Created by Tony Millionaire (Andy Richter’s brother in law through marriage), based on his Maakies comic strip, this 13 minute show is one of a kind. A borderline suicidal crow navigates the sea...

T5F: Guest Stars

5. Ed Asner and Lily Tomlin The X-Files S6:E6 “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas,” December 13, 1998 I feel like this episode went way under the radar, possibly because it is holiday themed, and in prime time science fiction fare, that is not always celebrated. However, as both a fan of The X-Files and of... Continue Reading →

T5F: Best Second Acts

5. Rob Lowe in Brothers & Sisters/Parks & Recreation Rob Lowe. What a treasure. He’s beautiful and ageless and somehow keeps landing really great television roles. When I first thought of him for this list, I was thinking he was amazing in West Wing and later on Parks and was so excited when I remembered... Continue Reading →
