CBS’s “Scorpion” Gets it Wrong!

PA-lease. As an O’Brien, I cannot watch this new show without thinking that the casting of Elyes Gabel is COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY WRONG. He plays Walter O’Brien, reportedly the 4th smartest man in the world with an IQ of 196. That’s a real guy: And although the real Walter doesn’t necessarily look Irish, he certainly … Continue reading

Oscar 2014

And the Oscars went to–Gravity, the movie that won nearly everything–except Best Picture. Two males in the same movie–the “thank-god-he’s-putting-the-weight-back-on” Matthew McConaughey and the “he-still-looks-like-a-girl-in-that-tux” Jared Leto–won both male acting roles, but their movie Dallas Buyers Club didn’t fare as well. Cate Blanchett won for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, amidst rumors that she … Continue reading

Gettin’ Down(ton) at the Abbey

Let me say first that I am not a regular viewer of the PBS show that seems to have stolen the hearts of so many of my friends and the country at large. I do, however, find it entertaining. But in a different way than most. The first season had come and gone when my … Continue reading

TV DINNER: The Voice 2013

omgomgomgomgomgomg. OKay? I love this show. I love everything about it. I love him: I mean really, this guy’s the real deal. And I LOVE him: I mean really, really, really. I even like these two: But it’s the interaction among them and the contestants that makes this show work. The back and forth of … Continue reading

TV Dinners: Sleepy Hollow

So I got this new idea…since I am no longer traveling, for the moment anyway, and I do watch alot of tv, and I’ve always wanted to be a critic, and this is MY blog and Glenn Walker told me I could write ANYthing on my own blog no matter what the blog title suggests, … Continue reading

The Return of Survivor: Fall TV, Wed. 9-18-13

In my house, we are huge Survivor fans. From way back, when I was taking a night class and my father came over to be with my son, they’d watch it together. Later, they became Lost devotees, but that show’s over–forever to be mis- or non-understood. The jury’s still out. But Survivor is a classic, … Continue reading

New Shows on Fall TV! Tuesday, 9/17/13

If you’re a regular reader of this blog (thank you), you know that I had once identified as a TV addict, but then kicked the habit. The release from having to be in front of the TV for every new episode of a favorite show, has led me to going to bed earlier and reading, … Continue reading
