The Neighbors – Season Premier This Friday

September 19, 2013 // 0 Comments

It’s been a tough week for me as I was teased with a bunch of new shows early this week.  As I don’t watch reality TV, it’s been a little slow for me since then. It’s so bad I watched a little X Factor last night.  Holy cow is that the worst panel of judges ever assembled or what?  It’s become clear that they don’t feel the need to show us talented performers anymore.  I suspect it would be exhausting to actually try to find decent singers rather then ...Click for More

The Neighbors and The Middle

May 13, 2013 // 0 Comments

Finally some good news from ABC, The Neighbors and The Middle were both renewed for next season. These are both solid comedies, which I give credit to ABC for keeping.  I would love to bash them over cancelling Happy Endings, but at least they kept these shows. If you aren’t watching The Neighbors, you need to start.  It’s one of the best shows on TV that you can still let your kids watch.  Jami Gertz is funny, but her husband played by Lennny Venito is hilarious. The Middle is ...Click for More

Awesome Freshman Sitcoms

March 29, 2013 // 2 Comments

Recently, three awesome freshman sitcoms had their season finales (drives me crazy as it’s not even April and they are done for the season).  I’d feel remiss if I didn’t highlight and discuss these special shows.  Each of the shows has been renewed for next season, so please add these to your DVR playlist.   The Neighbors I’ll admit, I was skeptical when I first heard about this show.  What makes this show awesome is that it funny for the whole family.  While ...Click for More

THE NEIGHBORS is a good show that I can watch with my kids.  I’m a Midwest dad that has 3 children ages 8-10.  It’s next to impossible to find shows that we can watch as a family.  Network comedies are shockingly inappropriate for young children.  I’m not always convinced that they are appropriate for me. It may seem like a silly premise, a family moves into a subdivision where all of the neighbors are aliens and it is if you are looking for complicated and sophisticated ...Click for More

The Neighbors

So you might have heard about the great remote disaster of 2012.  I was stuck on the couch with the remote out of reach for most of the night tonight so I was stuck on ABC.  This allowed me to watch their new show THE NEIGHBORS tonight for the first time. THE NEIGHBORS stars Jami Gertz (LESS THAN ZERO) and Lenny Venito (NYPD BLUE) as the parents of a family that moves in to a gated community where everyone in the community is an alien.  I haven’t watched this show yet because when I ...Click for More

Modern Family

MODERN FAMILY delivered tonight.  ABC ran two episodes back to back to help give their new show NASHVILLE a stronger lead in than THE NEIGHBORS and both episodes delivered. The highlights for me: In the first episode, Cam and Mitchell meet a lesbian couple played by Wendi McLendon-Covey (RENO 911) and Michaela Watkins (she had a cup of coffee on SNL), and the cattiness (is that a word?  It is now. ) between Cam and Wendi’s character is hysterical because everyone loves jokes about ...Click for More
