Billy & Billie aka Acceptable Incest

March 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

OK, maybe I went a little overboard with the headline of the article as what’s going on in this show isn’t technically incest.  The show Billy & Billie is really just about two people falling in love who, oh by the way, happen to be stepsiblings. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one watching this show as when I talk about it with friends, family, or randos on the street none of them have heard of it.  Part of the “problem” if you will is that it airs on the ...Click for More

Neighbors with Benefits

March 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

How many  more reality TV shows can there be? Are we nearly out of ideas? You would think we would be. If you thought that, you would be wrong. A&E premiered a new reality show last night called Neighbors with Benefits and you might be able to guess from the title what it is about. What is it about? Swingers. Yes. A&E, that is Arts and Entertainment, is doing a show about a neighborhood full of swingers. It premiered last night and because I am out there for you the reader, I watched ...Click for More

Better Call Saul is One of TV’s Best Shows

March 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

Better Call Saul is one of TV’s Best Shows When I wrote my original review for the Better Call Saul premiere, I was quite unimpressed with the show. I thought it was ok but nothing special. The hype surrounding the show was sure to make it difficult to live up to and at first, I didn’t really think they were getting the job done. I kept watching though. Each week they did something that many other new shows from the 2014-2015 TV season have not been able to do. They got better. Not ...Click for More

The Royals Premiere

March 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Royals Premiere The only reason I ever have to turn on the E! network is to watch The Soup. I’ve been a fan of that show since way back in the Greg Kinnear days. There might be another reason now for me to tune in to E!. The Royals premiere was a couple of days ago and it’s a show that might be worth watching. If you haven’t heard of The Royals, it’s a new show on E! starring Elizabeth Hurley and about 1,000 other people. The show is about, as you might have guessed, ...Click for More

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer

March 11, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones season 5 and it looks…amazing. Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer We have been told by Game of Thrones producers that the TV show will be breaking from the books more and more. This is due in part because George R.R. Martin can only write 1 book a decade it seems and production of the TV show is outpacing production of the source material. This is good news though for all of us who are fans of the show. No longer will we have ...Click for More

The Jack and Triumph Show

March 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m hesitant to write about this show because I know after watching it that the number of people who will think The Jack and Triumph Show is funny is a very tiny group of people that includes me and maybe four or five other people not related to Robert Smigel. The Jack and Triumph show stars Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (voiced by Smigel). McBrayer plays his Kenneth character that he started at the Improv Olympic and on The Conan O’Brien Show and then ...Click for More

Sex Box Premiere

March 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

I watch a lot of TV. That’s part of the reason why I write on a TV website. Because I watch a lot of TV. Sometimes that TV is good, sometimes it’s not good, and sometimes it’s a show like Sex Box. I don’t even really have a category to put Sex Box in because it is so appallingly bad that to call it bad would be offensive to The Odd Couple. At least at The Odd Couple, they are trying. Sex Box doesn’t deserve even that much leeway. Sex Box is a new show on WE tv. WE ...Click for More

Schitt’s Creek

February 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

The TV Guide Network recently rebranded itself and is now calling itself the Pop Network. I don’t know what exactly brought about that change since my feeling is that being associated with TV Guide at least gives you some measure of authority and believability from viewers but hey, what do I know. The new Pop Network launched with the announcement of two original series that are ostensibly meant to draw viewers to the network. One of the shows is some kind of New Kids on the Block boat ...Click for More

Better Call Saul Premiere

February 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

The long awaited Better Call Saul premiere was last night on AMC. Last night was the first night of the two-night premiere of the Breaking Bad spin-off based on the Jimmy McGill character (Bob Odenkirk). Better Call Saul is a prequel that follows Jimmy in his time before the events that take place during Breaking Bad. I was one of the five people in America who did not watch Breaking Bad so I came in to the Better Call Saul premiere not knowing anything about this character.  Since this is a ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – Season 5 Midseason Premiere

February 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

Alternate title:  MIDWEST MARK’S Triumphant Return to Form. How fitting that I return to the proverbial bloggy fray by way of the same show I started with… THE WALKING DEAD.  For those of you who don’t know me, I was the one MIDWEST TV GUY who actually watched guy-centric TV.  For the last year and a half, you have put up with MIDWEST MIKE talking about rose ceremonies and waxing poetic on his idiot-savant-level knowledge of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, while MIDWEST MO reviews ...Click for More

Silicon Valley Season 2 Trailer

February 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO just released the first trailer for Silicon Valley Season 2. I can’t tell  you how much I’m looking forward to season 2 of this show.  The trailer is from HBO so it’s a bit NSFW for language. Silicon Valley Season 2 Trailer I love this show. I’m a big fan of all the comedians on the show who all come from the current generation of guys who surround Pete Holmes and Chris Hardwick and the Nerdist empire. These guys are all hysterically funny. If you missed the first ...Click for More

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer

February 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

We must be getting close to the return of Game of Thrones. How do we know? They just released the first trailer for the upcoming season. Here it is: Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer I’m beyond excited and I’m sure you are too but try to control yourselves if you can. The show still isn’t coming back until April. That’s over 2 months away still. Game of Thrones is one of those shows that only does 10 episodes in a season over 10 weeks and then is off the air for over 9 ...Click for More

King Of The Nerds Season Three

January 26, 2015 // 1 Comment

Ok, ok, I know I’m late on this one. But come, on, this is a Firday night show. Friday night?? I have a life, you know! Which might be the point of a nerd show being on Fridays, I’m not sure. Anyway it’s time for King of the Nerds season three. If you aren’t familiar with the previous two seasons, it’s a show that takes a bunch of nerds, and they live together in this house. Every week they compete in a different nerd-themed challenge and someone goes home. Last ...Click for More

Conan & Archer Battle Russian Mobsters

January 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

What happens when a dopey red-headed TV host teams up with my favorite super spy? You get Conan & Archer Battle Russian Mobsters. That’s what happens. Conan & Archer Battle Russian Mobsters My family loves Archer. Well my wife and kids do. The rest of my family seems to be missing the humor gene because none of them think Archer is funny. I find it nearly impossible to not think Archer is funny. It’s one of those shows that is both too vulgar and too smart for most people to ...Click for More

Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast

January 20, 2015 // 0 Comments

Yes you read that title right. Justin Bieber is getting a Comedy Central roast.  A source at Comedy Central told Ryan Seacrest that this fantasy was in fact true. Said the source: “Justin has been asking us for years to roast him, so we kept telling him to create some more material and we’re thrilled he listened.” I’m only disappointed in this because Beiber has been asking for it. Asking to get roasted is like making up your own nickname. It’s not cool. I ...Click for More
