Favorite Series Returning?

As the TV season winds down our favorite series offer one last hurrah before summer sporting events and cable networks dominate.  The question I often find myself asking is, am I watching a season finale or a series finale.  The disappearance of a favorite television show can really hurt; losing [...]

‘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 [...]

Tech TV In The Air

Last week I shared with you some pretty detailed info on watching downloaded and streamed media in your hotel room.  Today I’m going to add my two cents about watching video on an airplane. The good news is the first part, the video itself, is pretty easy.  My guess is [...]

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 [...]

Throwback Thursday Tra La La La La La La

Tra la la la la la la. Recognize that? If you grew up in the seventies or early eighties it is likely you will remember those silly words as part of the theme song for The Banana Splits and Friends Show.

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 [...]

Tech TV – On The Road

A few weeks ago when I reviewed the Google Chromecast I believed I found the perfect device for watching streaming media (TV and Movies) while vacationing.  I still think the Chromecast is great, however it won’t be in my bag when I head south for a week in Anaheim later [...]

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!

Comedy Double Feature

This Saturday local PBS Member Station KQED will be showing two of my favorite comedies back-to-back; Some Like it Hot at 8:00 PM and The Birdcage at 10:03 PM. Some Like it Hot (1959) is brilliantly directed by Billy Wilder and equally as well acted by Tony Curtis and Jack [...]

‘Injustice’ is an excellent five-part drama

James Purefoy recently played the villain Dr. Joe Carroll in the Fox show The Following. I wasn’t impressed; as Purefoy showed little of the extreme charisma required for such a role as a professor turned serial killer who inspires an entire cult. I never once bought the idea that his [...]
