X Marks the Spot

There is something like 4,815,162,342 episodes of television produced across CSI, NCIS, Law & Order and all of their iterations. Guess how many I’ve seen? Zero. Zilch. Goose egg. Kardashian. Same goes for most of what constitutes “reality” television. Never seen ‘Survivor‘. I’ve barely watched an hour let alone binged ‘The Bachelor‘. I have no…

Killer TV

I’m not a TV junkie – AT ALL – which stands in stark contrast to my formative beginnings. My Mom LOVES to tell people that I learned to read at a very early age just so I could flip through the weekly TV Guide and circle in Crayon every show I dubbed Must See TV….

Fringe – ‘Os’ – 3.16

Well, here’s some good news. Fringe SHOULD be back for a fourth season. It looked the Friday Night Death slot straight in the eye and never blinked. In fact, the ratings have remained steady (after a slight tick down following the move) which is great news. The showrunners were told that if they could maintain…

The Dark Tower Rises

A few years ago, I wrote a fairly scathing indictment of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. This was coming from a jilted lover – as I sought a break from a series that burrowed its way into my heart when I was a mid-teen – that time when your lifelong passions really start to…

Tube Tops – Fringe, Human Target & Community

A year ago at this time, I was getting ready to begin my fourth and final year recapping Lost. I remember weathering a slight bit of writer’s block at the beginning as the daunting prospect lay before me. After all – those recaps represented the building blocks of this site – as I turned to…

Lost – ‘The End’ – Episode 6.17

Early this season, when the episode titles were announced, my eyes fixed on ‘The End’. A title so simple, so bold and so perfect. It told us absolutely nothing except the one unwavering fact – All Good Things Must Come to an End. After all, we are the rare breed. The fans of a show…

Lost – ‘What They Died For’ – 6.16

This is a bittersweet week. When we turned the page to Monday, it hit me. In one week’s time, we’d get the final three and half hours of this epic tale, and then we’re done. A tough pill to swallow especially after receiving last week’s information download regarding the true nature of the island that…

Lost – ‘Across the Sea’ – 6.15

When I was in college – way back in the flannel-decked intro to the Nineties – I found that one semester, I glommed onto The Doors’ “The End” something fierce. As a raging Pearl Jam fan, I think I spied a kissing cousin in Morrison’s moody evocative lyricism and that song bridged worlds to PJ’s…

Lost – ‘The Candidate’ – 6.14

  First off – I know some of you had to hunt a little bit for today’s post. That’s what happens when the Lost recap shares twin billing with my Cinco de Mayo Nino Colin’s birthday. Since I’ve been running this site, I’ve made it an annual event to post a piece recounting my thoughts…

Lost – ‘The Last Recruit’ – 6.13

  Ever since Lost debuted back in 2004, the networks have sprinkled their Fall seasons with any number of genre fair looking to bottle that same lightning. And, for the most part, none have come close to finding Lost or their The X-Files or Twin Peaks. I think these shows that instantly capture the zeitgeist…
