Grey's Anatomy: Can Cristina and Owen Make It Work?

(3) Comments | Posted April 11, 2012 | 4:48 PM

I've always been loyal to Grey's Anatomy. As we round out season eight, I've watched every week -- I pleaded for Meredith and Derek to end up together, cried when they killed off poor Denny and broke Izzie's heart and got mad when they killed off George. With the show...

Friends With Kids: Why it Scared Me

(0) Comments | Posted April 3, 2012 | 12:53 PM

After a few weeks in theatres, I finally got a chance to see Friends With Kids. I'd been intrigued by the trailer -- it reunited four members of the Bridesmaids cast and four actors that I enjoy separately as well.

Also, as a relatively newly married person who has...

The Hunger Games: Am I the Only One Who Didn't Love it?

(24) Comments | Posted March 28, 2012 | 10:01 AM

The Hunger Games: a movie event fans of the books were waiting anxiously for. I, like many others, bought my ticket ahead of time to see a Friday night showing. I watched with rapt attention, marveled at Jennifer Lawrence's ability to look scared but tough in an uncertain terrain. I...

Wedding Planning: Can it Ever Be Stress-Free?

(2) Comments | Posted March 23, 2012 | 2:34 PM

Planning your wedding. It's supposed to be a once in a life time, happy, special time -- but mostly, it's not. Why isn't it? I've been married for almost a year now and I still look back on the wedding process with a cringe and think of how I'd never...

Pick: Have a Wedding, or Keep Your Job

(0) Comments | Posted March 16, 2012 | 1:29 PM

In this uncertain economy, how does anyone plan for the future? That's the question I've been asking myself for a while now. I've been working on various contracts in different departments of the same company for the past five years, always facing uncertainty. There was a brief time last year...

New Girl: The Evolution of Nick Miller?

(0) Comments | Posted March 7, 2012 | 10:34 AM

After 15 episodes of New Girl, we've started to know the characters pretty well. Sure it's only season one and there's still a lot we don't know, but we know the important things: Jess is quirky, loves polka dots and singing. Schmidt is a former chubby kid who lost the...

How I Met Your Mother: Why Season 8 Should Be its Last

(25) Comments | Posted February 28, 2012 | 3:17 PM

I've been a big fan of How I Met Your Mother from very early on; I've watched and re-watched the first few seasons so many times my DVDs are starting to wear out. There are a lot of reasons to love this show: Barney's one-liners and crazy schemes, Lily's meddling,...

I've been a fan of Saturday Night Live for as long as I can remember. There's something about a fresh host and strong cast members that keeps me coming back every week. I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about the show -- some say the quality has...

Weight Watching: The Up and Down Struggle

(1) Comments | Posted February 23, 2012 | 2:26 PM

I, like many other women in this world, have an ongoing struggle with my weight.

About five years ago, I decided I'd had enough of my weight's constant climb and the associated bad feelings that nagged at me. So at a friend's suggestion I joined Weight Watchers. I was...

2 Broke Girls: The Good, the Bad and the Hope of Love

(8) Comments | Posted February 10, 2012 | 11:05 AM

I've never written about 2 Broke Girls before, but with one of my usual shows, Once Upon A Time in repeats and with some particular bees in my bonnet, I have decided today's the day.

I was a little late getting into 2 Broke Girls; my serious love for...

When Is the "Right Time" for a Baby?

(64) Comments | Posted February 9, 2012 | 4:52 PM

It's funny how things you never considered before just start to feel right. When I finished school and was starting out in the working world still living with my parents, I didn't worry much about when I should move out or where I would live. Some things just happen by...

Big Bang Theory: The Roommate Agreement and Rocket Man

(4) Comments | Posted February 3, 2012 | 10:35 AM

True to form, Sheldon started off this week's episode, "The Friendship Contraction" with one of his well-known emergency preparedness drills. This, of course, involved waking up Leonard in the middle of the night and having him choose which catastrophe they would be training against. This was well done continuity, as...

The Big Bang Theory: Flags Waving, Guns Flying and Fun with Siri

(2) Comments | Posted January 27, 2012 | 3:07 PM

Oh Big Bang Theory, I love ya. Can I just say right off the top how hilarious the Sheldon/Amy "Fun with Flags" videos were? Particularly at the end, when they were in costume; Amy as the pretzel just cracked me right up. This is the kind of Amy I can...

In "7:15 A.M." we spend a lot of our time with Mary Margaret. She starts off rushing to the coffee shop to see David collecting coffee for himself and his wife, Kathryn. I felt so bad for her while watching that scene unfold. I don't know how someone can look...

The Big Bang Theory's 100th Episode: Hitting All the Right Notes

(11) Comments | Posted January 20, 2012 | 7:17 PM

Thursday's episode of The Big Bang Theory was the 100th episode for the series and I must say, it did not disappoint! First off, a classic Sheldon-and-Leonard exchange dealing with the random interworkings of Sheldon's overactive mind. The conversation was topped off by the delivery of Sheldon's beloved life-sized cardboard...

Big Bang Theory: Are Amy and Bernadette Helping or Hurting the Series?

(36) Comments | Posted January 18, 2012 | 10:33 AM

What's going on with the Big Bang Theory these days? I understand a show needs to branch out out from the regular cast and bring on a few supporting characters and/or love interests. When Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik were cast as Bernadette and Amy, I didn't mind at first....

Once Upon A Time: Hansel, Gretel and A Stranger in Town

(6) Comments | Posted January 17, 2012 | 1:25 PM

When Storybrooke's hot Sheriff met his untimely end before the Christmas hiatus, I was sad, as many viewers were. I liked the fact that Sheriff Graham finally started to believe that Henry's fairytale book was real and was sad he had his heart crushed to dust. But how cool was...
