For Your Consideration: Freaks and Geeks, 1.08 “Girlfriends and Boyfriends”

It makes me have a sad that I haven’t written about Freaks and Geeks in a dog’s age. I know I’ve touched on how much I love this show in the past, but I cannot say enough good things about it. Stepdad recently told me he didn’t like the show and I about had a stroke. […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.12 The Ties That Bind

Bonnie is walking through the cemetery because she is a creep. She sees a bunch of Bennett witch graves before she comes to a coffin. Klaus appears behind her, telling her that he’s figured out how to open it. He then rushes toward her and bites her. Of course it’s a dream so Bonnie wakes […]

For Your Consideration: The League, 2.07 “Ghost Monkey”

If you like funny things then you should be watching The League. It is a hilarious show about a group of friends who have a fantasy football league. Don’t worry, you don’t have to know anything about football to enjoy the show. One of my favorite episodes is the Halloween-centric “Ghost Monkey”. If you haven’t […]

For Your Consideration: Jem and the Holograms, 2.16 “Trick or Techrat”

When I was a little girl, I was super into Jem and the Holograms, a television show created in the late 80’s about a girl named Jerrica who uses a hologram generator built by her deceased father to change herself into Jem, a pop star with pink hair. She also changes her younger sister and […]

For Your Consideration: New Girl, 2.06 Halloween

One of the most consistently funny Halloween-themed episodes of television I’ve ever watched is “Halloween” (original title!), a season two episode of New Girl. I can watch this episode over and over again, and the big haunted house sequence still gives me belly chuckles. Warning: do not watch the TV spot if you are anti-spoilers! TV […]

For Your Consideration: The Office, 2.05 “Halloween”

I’ve written about my favorite episode of The Office here before and thought it was high time that I share another, this time with a Halloween spin- it is October after all. OBSERVATIONS I think it’s rare to find an office where everyone dresses up for Halloween. My last year in an office only two […]

For Your Consideration: Halloween Edition, Year 2

It is October once again and if you’ve read my blog with any kind of regularity, you know what that means: all things Halloween! Last year I wrote about Hocus Pocus and a small handful of my favorite Halloween-themed episodes of television. I never did find the time to complete my (very short) list, so […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.11 Our Town

Damon looks VERY VERY happy as he takes a shower at the Salvatore Boarding House. Like, VERY happy. Meanwhile, Elena is taking out her sexual frustration on a punching bag at Alaric’s. Ric enters the room and warns her against punching a hole through the bag. Does anyone believe that she is strong enough to […]

For Your Consideration: Smallville, 5.05 “Thirst”

Superman meet vampires. I imagine this is how the pitch meeting went for the Halloween themed episode of Smallville. It sounds borderline crazy. Two completely unmeshable things. While it is a bit of a train wreck, it’s also a delightful piece of camp that I now enjoy every October. TV SPOT OBSERVATIONS Editor in Chief […]

For Your Consideration: Supernatural, 4.07 “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester”

I touched ever so briefly on my love of Supernatural when I wrote a post during the 30 Day TV Show Challenge. Well, on my love of Dean Winchester anyway. It’s only natural that I include the Halloween themed episode of Supernatural in my Halloween themed posts. TV SPOT OBSERVATIONS I want so desperately to […]

For Your Consideration: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 4.04 “Fear, Itself”

That’s right, another Buffy Halloween episode. I just can’t help myself. TV SPOT OBSERVATIONS Of course Xander’s pumpkin would mock him with it’s GIANT eye holes. Side note: I am SUPER PUMPED to begin carving a pumpkin (or five). Last year Boyfriend and I carved the best pumpkin ever. Depressed Buffy is so hard to […]

For Your Consideration: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 2.06 “Halloween”

Confession time: Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite television show. Ever. The amount of restraint that it has taken to not write about the show up to this point is astounding. I’m a really big fan of the early seasons in particular- two, three, and four. One of my favorite episodes of all time […]

For Your Consideration: Parks and Recreation, 2.07 “Greg Pikitis”

My favorite thing about Parks and Recreation is Leslie Knope. And Ron Swanson. And Tom Haverford. And April and Andy. So basically, everyone but Ann. Nobody likes Ann. “Greg Pikitis” is a great episode in that it highlights exactly what I love about Leslie- her determination and over the top, can-do attitude. Plus it gives […]

For Your Consideration: Freaks and Geeks, 1.03 “Tricks and Treats”

I really love the Halloween episode of Freaks and Geeks. Lindsey is trying to fit in with the freaks by acting like a teenager’s vision of an adult (aka not like an adult at all) while Sam and his geek friends desperately cling to childhood by trick or treating. The two collide with mildly disastrous […]

For Your Consideration: Halloween Edition

October is here my friends and thus begins my celebration of all things Halloween (which just so happens to be my favorite holiday). I’m going to spend the rest of the month covering my favorite Halloween themed episodes of TV shows. It’s the perfect way to get into the spirit of the holiday and have […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.10 The New Deal

Bonnie walks through the woods to the abandoned dead witch house, voices whispering all around. She goes to the basement and sees four coffins. One of the coffins is raised higher than the others. She opens it and Klaus is inside, holding the Original Witch’s necklace. Bonnie reaches for it but hears a sound behind […]

Live Blog: Friends, 1.14 The One With the Candy Hearts

More thoughts on Friends as I watch each episode. I encourage you to watch along (if possible), as my comments will probably make more sense. Or you can have fun conjuring up your own images based on what you read. Either way, enjoy. 1.14 The One With the Candy Hearts – I can almost guarantee […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.09 Homecoming

Stefan is at the Salvatore Boarding House on a phone call with Klaus who is discussing the pros and cons of visiting Portland, Oregon. Stefan, showing a total lack of emotion, tells him that his father is dead. Klaus is shocked and asks for clarification so Stefan tells him that Mikael has been daggered. He […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.08 Ordinary People

Elena and Ric enter the Lockwood cellar, discussing the cave drawings that he found. Damon sneaks up behind Elena and whispers her name, giving her a little scare. He explains that he can’t go any further into the tunnels, thanks to the Lockwood’s ancient hatred of vampires. Elena and Ric enter the cave and Ric […]

Recap That Noise: Vampire Diaries, 3.07 Ghost World

Damon is tied to a chair in his living room with a fire iron sticking out of his chest. His daylight ring is on the ground and Mason is watching him. Stefan enters the room and Damon accuses him of being responsible for what is happening, calling it a “ripper game”. Stefan swears it wasn’t […]
