Big Bird AMA If you are not familiar with Reddit, it’s generally a cesspool of idiot teenagers and 20 somethings telling dick jokes and repeating the same memes over and over and over. Every now and then though, you find something worth while on there. There is a sub-reddit there called Ask Me Anything (AMA) that is very hit or miss.

Fox Cancels The Mindy Project

Mindy Project Cancelled There is going to be a lot of news about shows in the next few days as networks make decisions on which shows will be getting picked up and which ones will be getting the ax. Fox came out today and announced one of the first cancellations with news that they are cancelling The Mindy Project. While it’s not a total surprise that they are cancelling this show, the ratings have been consistently terrible, I am still mildly surprised.  Few shows have been able to ...Click for More

Wide-eyed with a heart made full of fright Your eyes follow like tracers in the night And the tightrope that you wander everytime You have been weighed, you have been found wanting Mumford and Sons   Apparently today is Cinco de Mayo.

I Can Do That

About 10-15 years ago we reached a point where every conceivable concept remotely imaginable was at some point or other a TV show.  It got so bad that at one point there was not one but two celebrity diving shows airing at the same time. It’s inevitable really as there are approximately 467 channels out there all looking for content.  Hell, I don’t even think current shows are writing all that much new content.  What I mean is that if you watch a lot of TV like us, you may see ...Click for More
