‘HIMYM’ Ends After 9-Year Run

How I Met Your Mother  ended Monday after nine years on CBS.  To mark the occasion I thought it would be fun to share my top five favorite HIMYM moments: 1. My brother used to (frequently) deliver a judo chop to the back of my neck that would make me see [...]

My Picks February 17 – 23

After a somewhat boring Super Bowl XLVIII where the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks destroyed Payton Manning and the Denver Broncos, a trip south for a week at Disneyland, one heck of a bumpy flight home and a battle with the mother-of-all-coughs I am finally back to write about my picks [...]

My Picks January 27 – February 2

There’s only one thing on TV in the next seven days that really matters to me, and that’s the Super Bowl.  What’s annoying me a bit right now is I planned a vacation late last year and never thought about the date of the Super Bowl so now I will [...]

Watch This Weekend

I remember being nineteen years old, I was attending community college and working, had a decent car, lots of friends and didn't have too much trouble finding dates; it would have never occurred to me there would be a time in my future that I would look forward to staying [...]

My Picks January 20 – 26

TV is back in full swing, and I couldn't be happier; it seems like there are several really great shows this season, and I have yet to find myself digging hard for something to watch.  Of course, this can be a problem because I like to check out obscure programs [...]

Sherlock On PBS

http://youtu.be/9UcR9iKArd0 Sherlock is back this Sunday on PBS.  If you've had the opportunity to see this extremely well made series then my guess is your heart just skipped a beat.  I’m not using hyperbole here, it’s that good! Unlike many UK crime dramas, which tend to be deliberately paced, Sherlock [...]

A TV Scoop Christmas

I was in my car yesterday, heading east toward Montgomery Village and listening to some classic Christmas songs on Pandora when “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” came on.  “Yeah, right” I thought; if it’s really that great why do so many people seem unhappy?  Heck, I went [...]

Throwback Thursday – Christmas Specials

I know it’s not exactly the season for crying and pouting but I’ve been noticing a trend the past couple of decades and I just have to say something; Christmas specials have become weak and uninspired compared to what I grew up with in the seventies.  I’m from a time [...]

Throwback Thursday – Hogan’s Heroes

http://youtu.be/3tv1HYSngQ8 Number one on the list of my all-time favorite sitcoms is Hogan’s Heroes.  The comedic brilliance of the writing and the superb acting by Werner Klemperer, John Banner, Bob Crane, Richard Dawson and the others is what recommends this series. I’ve watched it all on DVD and can attest [...]
