Lie To Me – Television’s New Star

Lie to Me stars Tim Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, one of the world’s premiere experts on detecting lies.  He runs his own company, and gives lectures to police forces, special agents, and a wide variety of other institutions.  Of course, he also gets called in on the odd case, because that’s where we get our show. Something of a mix between House and The Mentalist, Lie to Me is part invest...

United States of Tara – Television Review

It’s been a long time since I was so torn over a series premiere.  United States of Tara stars Toni Collette and John Corbett, and features multiple personality disorder.  I should probably mention Diablo Cody as part of the cast, because a writer has never been so prominently displayed in a show’s hype.  I’m torn because the show plays out rather horribly actually, but I’m...

The Mentalist Is The Best New Show On TV… By A Mile

The Mentalist is bold, brash, and snarky, and by far the best television has offered in quite some time. There have been countless efforts down the general Sherlock Holmes road, and few of them have managed even to be bearable.  In recent years a couple of movies took a shot at reviving a “real” Sherlock Holmes.  One close to the man in the original books, not what people have come to ...

The History Of Tuesday Night TV And What To Watch Tonight

Welcome to Tuesday.  You may not know what to watch tonight, and I can’t blame you.  Everyone is after Tuesday night suddenly, and it’s a pretty confusing turn of events if you’ve been paying attention… for a really long time. Tuesday has been a throw away for so many years, that if you were lucky, there was one decent show you might catch.  Everyone wants it now, and there are more ratings ...

Watch Kitchen Nightmares! That Is Seriously A Command. Donkey.

I hate to be in the position of recommending shows people are actually watching. My lot, as I see it, is more along the lines of recommending things no one knows about, and trashing anything with high ratings. But, the season premiere of Kitchen Nightmares (which, to be fair, was a revisit episode) didn’t do as well as last season. Now, it still had over 5 million viewers, but that puts it third f...

Reality Television Is Overrated… And Underrated

The Real World. Big Brother. A Shot At Love. The Apprentice. American Idol. What’s Next? It isn’t exactly walking to school uphill both ways, but I remember watching the first season of MTV’s The Real World. I remember actually being fairly excited about the show, and probably for reasons that did not work for the show’s producers. I liked it because, despite the horrendous irony of the show...
