T5F: Best Animated Shows for Adults

5. Bojack Horseman - Netflix Bojack is the show of my neurotic dreams, or maybe nightmares. Human/Horse Bojack is a washed up actor from a hit 90s sitcom (think John Stamos if he was sunk into a deep depression and alcoholism... so John Stamos as of 2 years ago) lives in a world that includes...

Everything is Terrible Let’s Talk About TV

1. Or look at pictures about TV. Mike Denison is drawing a picture of Bea Arthur every day for a year (again). 2.  Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later is now on Netflix. It is, as expected, completely ridiculous and has crammed so many movie parodies into it, that it's frankly impressive. Bonus points for... Continue Reading →

Top Five Friday: Best Second Acts

Television is home to some serious acting comebacks. Big stars who found their way to the small screen, small screen sensations who faded away only to come roaring back into our lives and one that's just a meta miracle. Let's start there with: 5. Lisa Kudrow as Valerie Cherish (twice) in The Comeback (2005, 2014) We only... Continue Reading →

T5F: Most Obnoxious Characters

If I were stuck in an elevator with any of these characters, I'd be clawing my way through the ceiling vents. 5. Vicki Groener (Kathy Griffin) Suddenly Susan (1996 - 2000) I'll admit to finding Kathy Griffin reasonably charming as a human being. There's an honest, scrappy quality to her that I can respect (recent transgressions notwithstanding)... Continue Reading →

T5F: Spin-Offs

5. The Facts of Life If you grew up in the '80s, you either fell right into the Diff'rent Strokes sweet spot or Facts of Life. I was definitely in the Facts of Life camp. And let's be honest, the premise for Facts of Life seems a bit safer than its predecessor- a rich, old white... Continue Reading →

About Time

I've been in this on-again, off-again relationship over the last few years. When we started out, it was just a hook-up and I wasn't entirely sure if it was right for me but I stuck it out. And then things got pretty hot and heavy for a while there. But somewhere along the way, we... Continue Reading →

T5F: Top 5 Reasons to Watch The Nanny

Yeeeeeah, that's right! I'm going in hard on THE NANNY. BUCKLE UP. First up, a disclaimer: no, it's not The Wire. This low-rent sitcom from the '90s is clearly not revolutionary television. I'm not suggesting you binge watch it over a weekend and let the glories of the show, the majesty of its artistry, sink into your... Continue Reading →
