Oh, Honey! This Reality Competition Show Is Far From A Drag

April 4th, 2018

I’ve come to notice lately that just about every major network has some form of reality TV show. Whether it’s scripted reality TV, reality competitions, or game shows, everywhere I look a new one seems to sprout up. If it’s not evident, I’m not really one for reality TV shows. I find much of them lack any real substance. Granted, I do watch a lot of tvs, but I just never understood reality TV’s popularity. Until a friend recommended a new kind of reality competition show for me to watch. This reality show easily changed my understanding of what reality TV could represent. Not only could... Read More

This (Probably) Will Easily Become Your Favorite Dramedy

March 29th, 2018

I don’t know about you guys, but I love my TV comedies. I find them to be an essential in my everyday life. It’s nice to be able to just relax, forget about my troubles, and watch a show that is designed to make me laugh. Afterall, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard somewhere that laughing is good for you.

The ones set in 1940s America, where there’s an endless sea of zoot suits and Lana Turner curly updos, with the private investigator who’s a tough, no-nonsense inner monologuing type hired by some “damsel” to take on a difficult case involving either murder, shady business dealings, missing persons, or a femme fatale (who usually turns out to be the “damsel”). I also grew up watching all things superhero, as most kids do. There’s something to be... Read More

Dead-finitely A Show To Watch

March 6th, 2018

When you think of zombies I’m sure most, if not all, think of green colored flesh, dulcet-toned groans, narrowed arms reaching forward, and the accepted idea that brains is the only food of choice. Well, you’d be partially right. I once pictured zombies, in the same way, that is before I came across a television show known as The Walking Dead. This AMC produced drama has given me a new outlook on the picturesque definition of the word zombie. If you’re at all squeamish, I’d suggest turning away for this next part. “Walkers”, as they are otherwise referred to within this show, aren’t... Read More
