"Parks and Recreation ends season 3 with good-byes & one very special offer"


It is the best of times; it is the worst of times…in Pawnee. [Spoiler Alert] Well, that’s not entirely accurate. In fact, it’s just kind of a terrible time for the town that has had so much celebration of late. One of their biggest stars as fallen. No, not Perd Hapley, but in fact the little horse that could, Li’l Sebastian... [MORE]



"The CW sets its fall 2011 primetime schedule"


You know, we’ll admit it: there was a time when we really didn’t pay attention to The CW. It was a baby of a network, and it’s programming seemed to share the immature sensibility. They just didn’t have anything for us, and this was a few years ago, when we were significantly younger than we are now. But more and more lately, we find ourselves drawn to their projects. Sure, it starts out because of the hype: it becomes trendy to be associated with something so young, and since more and more entertainment news outlets hire kids right out of college, they cover what speaks to them, and what speaks to them is The CW. But it’s evolved into so much more than that. And this year it seems like The CW has realized its own potential for diversifying their demographic, and that will be the fall season’s greatest reward... [MORE]


"More than three dozen new shows coming to network TV in 2011-2012"


When it came to new show pick-ups last year, networks were all about the relationship comedies and the new kinds of heroes/new kinds of (large scale) threats, but this year the theme across all of the big five seems to be b*tchy women (some of whom are out for revenge), "woe is me" tales of men who feel that it's a woman's world (which by the way is clearly not true or none of these shows would have been green lit in the first place because they are stereotypical and lowest common denominator), and 1960s period dramas, with the occasional "fairy tale come to life" thrown in. Let’s hope the slightly more widespread creativity this year means the new shows will fair a bit better overall... [MORE]

"Sebastian Roche on Balthazar's conflict and the Supernatural cliffhanger"

Early on in season six of Supernatural we met a new man, well angel, really, who unbeknownst to us at the time delivered the secrets of what was to come. "The footsteps I'm following, they're yours. What you did, stopping the big plan, the prize fight? You did more than rebel. You tore up the whole script and burned the pages for all of us. It's a new era. No rules, no destiny. Just utter and complete freedom"... [MORE]
