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 →

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: Shows That I Just Can’t

Look, I tried. I really did. 5. Mad Men - AMC (2007 - 2015) I actually think I did pretty well with this one! I was in it for a while, maybe through season 5... let's just say I didn't last longer than Don's marriage to Megan. But it was tough. I remember the feeling of seeing... Continue Reading →

T5F: Favorite Cult Shows

5. Riverdale - CW, 2017 - Present The newest one in the bunch! What a weird, wonderful show. The thing I think I appreciate about any teen show is when it's genuinely well done. Teenagers are, how do I put this lightly, teenagers are dumb- they're unformed adults and they usually have terrible taste; you... 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: 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...

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 →

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 →
