To my poor neglected blog followers

I apologize I haven’t been posting in a while, but I have fallen in love… again… with Shameless (US).

I will return to post when I am able to unglue my eyeballs from William H. Macy and Emmy Rossums boobs.

Cheers!

Revolution: not revolutionary but seriously entertaining

IT’S NOT EXACTLY TURNING THE SCI-FI/POST-APOCALYPSE GENRE ON IT’S HEAD, BUT IT’S DEFINITELY ENTERTAINING.

In Sci-Fi there is one good thing (be it a movie, TV show, comic book, etc.) for every thousand bad ones, so it is hard to be overly-critical (at least for me) of a genre that so often fails. That being said I don’t go rushing out for every little iota of Sci-Fi out there just because there is a lack of really good stuff to find, but there has to be a middle ground somewhere for it, right? I personally like the idea of cheesy TV. It’s one of the things that I really enjoy about it. Yes, there are plot holes, and over-acting, but you get that in anything. What I like is the idea behind it. Generally that’s all it takes for me.

It is refreshing to see a post-apocalypse show that ISN’T about zombies these days. Let’s face it, Walking Dead has cornered that one. The fact that somebody didn’t try pushing the line of the zombie story to some ridiculous proportion is incredible to me (I’m still waiting for some kind of zombie musical or sitcom or something dumb like that) so that is already a plus one in my book. I really like the sort of pioneer swashbuckling wild west civil war style world they live in, and the hint of whimsy with the “power pendants” is a nice  bonus. I feel like it should be a little more steampunk-y though…

Regardless, rebels, psychopathic dictators, roving bands of raiders and bounty hunters all mix together in a world with no electricity and the story follows the people I believe are going to be unknowingly responsible for turning the power back on. What’s not to love? I’m a little mad the show won’t be returning to TV until MARCH.

And all was right with the world!

I’m going to keep this short, because I’m balls tired, but MAN I got in some good TV tonight.

Gossip Girl had a twist I didn’t expect.

How I Met Your Mother was actually kinda good (although, has anyone else noticed that Lilly has gotten kinda really whiny since the whole baby thing?).

And 2 Broke Girls was cute as usual. I love the new eye candy addition (Ryan Hansen) too. 😉

So maybe it was because I’m feeling a little better from being sick, or maybe it was that TV land got its act together, but I don’t care. I was entertained.

More Community news… and of course it’s bad

So after everything going on with this show now we get this news?! Why can’t they all just get along and finish the show without making people riot?

This could go either way, really, but usually when something like this happens to a show already submerged in problems I don’t see good things on the horizon. I really hope this doesn’t just all totally kill the 4th season we’ve all been waiting for. By “this” I absolutely mean all of the terrible raging crap pile that is building up on top of this show.

Community Season 4 Spoilers Community and Chevy Chase are officially parting ways.

TVLine has confirmed that Chase and producers have come to a mutual agreement that finds the comedy vet departing the cult NBC series effective immediately. The sudden ouster means that he will not appear in one or two of Community‘s final Season 4 episodes, which have yet to be shot.

Our sister site Deadline first reported the news.

Because Community is shooting the end of its upcoming season out of sequence and production on the finale has already wrapped, Chase’s unlovable curmudgeon Pierce will likely appear in the season ender but not in the handful of installments leading up to it.

Chase’s exit is unsurprising given his tumultuous relationship with the still-benched sitcom. In early October, the actor found himself at the center of an on-set…
