CULT: Olive Snook of Pushing Daisies

The facts were these: Another perfect show that fell prey to being too brilliant for its time, the precocious half-hour comedy that was Pushing Daisies also contained one of the best hidden gems: Olive Snook, played by Kristen Chenoweth. Welcome to CULT, the column to celebrate the best under-appreciated ladies on the small screen.

Why I Watched: Chuck vs. The Goodbye

72 hours later and I’m still reeling from how perfect the Chuck finale was. For the show that held on by a thread for so long, it doesn’t really feel like it’s really over. As I started writing about the finale, I realized that I didn’t want to write a recap. If you watch Chuck, you know what happened.

Recap: 30 Rock 6×03 & 6×04 – Idiots Are People Three! & The Ballad of Kenneth Parcell

So before tonight’s episode, I thought I’d […]

Small Screened: ABC’s The River, premiering Feb. 7

On Thursday night, I had the extreme pleasure of screening the first two episodes of ABC’s highly-anticipated new paranormal adventure drama The River, which airs February 7th. The plot? Beloved nature show television host Dr. Emmet Cole has disappeared without a trace into an obscure part of the Amazon while filming with a small crew, and six months later, his family has given him a funeral and all but let him go – until his rescue beacon activates in an uncharted area of the river, known among locals as the Bouina. Now the race is on to find Emmet while staying alive in a part of the Amazon with a certain slightly terrifying flair for the supernatural.

Why I’ll Fly Pan Am Until It Crashes

This post is probably futile as Pan Am is almost sure to soon be cancelled, or at least not renewed for a second season; but I just need to profess my love for Pan Am before it really is too late.
