Interests: I've lived in Hampton all my life, and have been a TV and movie freak for as long as I can remember. My TV obsessions: “Sisters” (1991-1996), “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (1993-1997), “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003), “Joan of Arcadia” (2003-2005), and many others: “Angel,” “Firefly” and Dollhouse” (Joss Whedon shows), “How I Met Your Mother,” “Mad Men,” “Weeds,” “True Blood,” etc. I've seen every Nightmare on Elm Street movie multiple times and like a cheesy teen dance movie as much as a quiet indie film. Interests/Obsessions: Mad Men, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, House, Community, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live, The Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Weeds, America's Next Top Model, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, Horror movies, Independent Cinema, pop culture

Last week I received screener copies for some of the CW lineup, including the next two episodes of "Gossip Girl."

I found out recently that a good friend of mine won't miss an episode of "Teen Mom." Me = perplexed. I don't know the demographics of the "Teen Mom" audience, but I doubt a highly intelligent 27-year-old with a penchant for political history and JFK memorabilila is the "Teen Mom"... Continue reading

Why are ALL my shows on hiatus? "Gossip Girl" and "How I Met Your Mother" are both old episodes tonight. Last week, I didn't get any new "Grey's Anatomy," "Vampire Diaries," "The Office" or "Community." Since I've been lacking new TV, I've been using my streaming Netflix to watch "Buffy...

Almost all the regularly scheduled programming is back and brand new, which means you're probably joining me in frantically determining the best way to DVR my favorite shows.

Photo via Zap2It "How I Met Your Mother" is one of my must-watch comedies. I stick with it, even through its dry spells. It's not always as funny as its earlier seasons, but it's still a standby in my household. Monday night's episode made me laugh out loud and, at... Continue reading

Zap2It today posted a roundup of its "Best and Worst of Reality 2010." I'm a TV junkie, but I don't watch a ton of reality TV. I was suprised to see that there was no mention of Anne's win on "America's Next Top Model." Having such an awkward, ungainly and... Continue reading
