March 14th! We’re Going Back To Neptune!

Growing up I had one TV in my house on which time was very regulated. If Dad was home, our time using it was monitored. I have memories of watching TV as a family – shows like The Cosby Show and Little House On The Prairie but we didn’t watch as much as our friends did and there was often stuff I was missing out on when it came to lunchroom conversation. It only worsened once I hit high school because I stayed so busy all the time that there was minimal time to watch TV. (Although – when Dad...

What We’re Watching: ORPHAN BLACK

Spoiler Free! I promise! We don’t watch a lot of TV lately. I watch So You Think You Can Dance but I watch it the next day and I fast-forward through everything but the dancing.

That’s unheard of for me. I do like to have shows on OnDemand or Netflix or something that I can turn to when I want to watch something. Right now it’s...

Or even worse, if I dedicate a lot of my interest and love and enthusiasm and then a third party takes it away from me. (I’m looking at you SyFy for taking away Alphas). I want a...

“Grown-Up” TV That I Actually Enjoy

I do not watch what I call “Grown-Up” TV. Shows like Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. Shows that no one who’s not at least high school aged would be allowed to watch. But I do watch Dramas! Just shows that wouldn’t require an R-rating. But it’s not about the explicit material, although I don’t like that stuff. It’s about a note of light-heartedness. I need to have something to counterbalance the seriousness. Some levity to negate the crime. Which is why Castle is one of my favorite television shows. Every episode is about a murder, but they never try...
