20 TV Questions
With some help from Grumpyclown...

With the Best of 2013 poll almost coming to an, the awards for The Blowies given out at the start of the week and all the TV.com staff picks popping up, my teeny tiny brain (gee, thanks Grumpyclown) started to come up some other questions that wouldn't really fit in with an end of year article or poll.

To save everyone some hassle, I decided to limit this first post to 20 questions - I have more, but right now 20 seems like a good number.

If you come up with any questions, feel free to drop me a message and I'll do another 20 questions when I have them

Some of these questions are similar or the same as ones previously asked by TV.com before we had the communities. Some of the questions are just ones that popped into my mind ...Read more

What Are The Best TV Show Titles Ever?
To be honest, I was getting a bit tired off all the posts and reaction on HIMYM. There obviously are people who loved the series final and whole lot who didn’t. Every post I found the same discussion going on between those two groups. In one of the news post by Kaitlin there was a video for the opponents, from someone who “fixed” the ending. In that post she also mentions that ‘The Travel Channel has greenlit 10 new series, including Booze Traveler, which just won the newly invented TV.com Award for Best TV Show Title Ever’. Now that is a fantastic award. TV.com will do the honours for 2014 I suppose, but let us think back in time who we think should win up to now.

We've got a few categories we all know (with a few examples mentioned):

Place where it happens: where series ...Read more

An Update on The Blowies: The Worst of 2013 Poll


Well there has been a lot of activity so far on The Blowies Poll, so here is an update on some of the leaders and some of the tighter races. The poll will close after this weekend so there is still a lot of time for things to change -

In the Worst miniseries/event series or “Special” poll, The Sound of Music Special is an early leader, but Under the Dome and The Lady Gaga/Muppets special are catching up.

Worst Drama is being dominated By Under the Dome (which some people have pointed out should not be in the category as its Sci-fi/Fantasy - but members nominated it for this category) and for some reason Homeland and Dexter are really lagging behind here.

Worst Comedy is being led by Dads, but Sean Saves the World and Super Fun Night are gaining support.

Worst Sci-Fi/Fantasy is Under the Dome ...Read more

Characters You Love in TV Shows You Hate

I got this idea from Who are the Characters You Hate in TV shows you Love? for it kept me thinking about the Regina Mills, Miles Mathesons or Sue Sylvesters that made even the worst cringeworthy moments of shows like Once Upon a Time, Revolution or Glee somewhat bearable.

You know, the characters that stand for something even if the premise does not, the characters that make you reconsider the reasons to quit a show.

I mean, we've all had them: the Bertas that kept you from dismiss Two & a Half Men, the Lafayettes without whom you would've ...Read more

A Poker Night: Who Would You Invite?
Oh man, I love Tim’s reviews. He has his ups and downs. his fans and haters, shows he loves and shows he loves to hate but he always makes me think about them. One part of his style is to make crazy remarks just a bit out of context to prove a point. So often I immediately have a mental image of what it might be, how it may have come to or what it may become and I start imagining what I’d want out of it. In his last review of The Walking Dead episode "Us" he mentioned: ‘Glenn's the kind of guy you'd invite over for guys' poker night and he'd bring Maggie and then she'd make him leave at 9:30pm’. Been there, seen it, done it. All of them, even the thing where my girlfriend made me leave much to ...Read more

10 Supporting Characters I Want to Snuggle with for Valentine's Day
In his review for True Detective, Tim said his Pulitzer-Prize winning feature "10 Supporting Characters I Want to Snuggle with for Valentine's Day" will have to wait until tomorrow. Now I do not want to wait that long for something that interesting. I’ve been thinking about my own list and there are so many I would like to snuggle. I could easily have fantasies beyond Valentines day. Some are more or less supporting and might be called leading, but it’s a way of looking at them. I am male, so excuse me for having only females I ...Read more

Another 20 TV Questions (Part 5)
So, winter is leaving (or is it coming?) the country. Today temperatures over here reached a whopping 16ºC (61ºF) which is above average. Does this mean that the days of contemplating in front of the fireplace are gone? I so do hope not! Fires can be fun in back gardens as well. Just make sure the wind is not blowing to hard and you’re not living near a forest. Just remember, contemplating is a serious business. One should never be without at least 20 questions to think about.

To make sure you’ll won't be caught without a thought to keep your minds working, I’ve included 20 new questions to think about.

And remember, nothing is impossible. When @donatos said: “most of the questions seem impossible to answer”, the only answer possible was: “To be honest, that is one of my main drives, to get you all ...Read more

Summer Marathons: Why You Should Watch Warehouse 13
We are now in the final push of the standard television season. Thank God much of cable has developed unconventional schedules to keep us engaged during the summer, but if none of the upcoming shows float your boat – what about jumping head first into a show you have heard about but have not had the time to watch on a weekly basis? I know I have had many on my list – finally caving in to the fan acclaim of The Walking Dead the end of last summer. Because of the serial storytelling, TWD was a fun show to watch back to back and not having to wait for the resolution to cliffhangers. I caught up on the first seasons of Lost and 24 the same way – and it is so much fun to be left hanging…but then able to hit PLAY and continue the story.

But let’s not ...Read more
