Hello Ladies Recap: Pilot

By Zan Romanoff

September 30, 2013 | 1:01 pm

I'll admit that I did not go into Hello Ladies with an open mind. I know that Stephen Merchant, who co-created the series and stars in it as sad-sack singleton Stuart, is supposed to be a... read on

  • Recap: I Fall to Pieces

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 26, 2013 | 9:11 am

    When last we left Nashville the show had descended into so much slippery soapiness: Gunnar had confessed his musical crimes to his producer and tried to propose to his pissed-off girlfriend, Scarlett, to mend their broken relationship, Juliette's mother had essentially committed... read on

  • Joss Whedon brings big action to the small screen

    Joss Whedon has not always done well on network television. Sure, Buffy the Vampire Slayer got seven seasons and the accolades and Emmys it so richly deserved, but Firefly lasted a mere 14 episodes (thank god for the movie follow-up, Serenity) and Dollhouse eaked out a second... read on

  • Emmys tell bleak tale of broadcast TV

    By Melissa Weller

    So the Emmys were on Sunday, and with it no shortage of Neiling, Breaking and flopped attempts at Modernizing. Not least of which was characterized by the slap-happy host jabbing “our younger audience” by clarifying that television is “the thing you watch on your phones.” Cute?... read on

  • How I Met Your Mother Recap: The Locket & Coming Back

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 24, 2013 | 3:17 pm

    I don't think there are many people who would argue with the assertion that How I Met Your Mother has been on the air too long. Its nine seasons have stretched once-funny bits into gratingly overwrought irritations, and the show's weaker elements (Barney Stinson's abject misogyny,... read on

    So I'm not caught up on Breaking Bad yet-- I know, I know, believe me, I know-- but it's a scary project to embark on when every Sunday every one of my social media feeds erupts with howls of absolute agony over the most recent episode. It's like the Red Wedding every week. But for... read on

    We're three days into the fall season premieres and already I'm feeling overwhelmed. Luckily the folks over at Vulture have put together a handy guide for telling which show is which. It includes debut dates, times and networks for each of them, so you won't miss anything that looks exciting-- and you can easily avoid what doesn't.  

  • Fox and the Comedy Hat Trick

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 18, 2013 | 10:26 am

    There was a period from approximately 2009 through the end of 30 Rock's run last year when NBC was the undisputed queen of Thursday nights. Between Tina Fey's smart skewering of her own genre, Amy Poehler's hilarious turn as the too-perky, scarily driven Leslie Knope in Parks and... read on
