I know I went MIA for a while, because life happened and the holidays happened and I got burnt out. But I have a lot of exciting ideas for this year (probably starting in March due to other commitments eating my life right now) that I can’t wait to share with you guys.
In the meantime, I wanted to record a new video with a quick run-through of some of the things I loved on TV while I was away.
As you may or may not be aware, this past weekend was NEW YORK COMIC CON! This was my 6th year attending the convention and it was, as always, an absolute blast. I saw quite a few TV-related things during the weekend and thought I’d share some thoughts on those panels and screenings.
In case I haven’t made it painfully obvious in my three-ish years of blogging, I love me a good space opera. There’s not enough of them in the world. So when I was presented with the opportunity for a preview screening of Syfy’s latest attempt at the genre, The Expanse, I jumped on it.
The verdict? I really liked it, but couldn’t summarize the plot for you if my life depended on it. I don’t know if it was the echo-y sound in the room causing me to miss dialogue periodically, my own exhaustion after a long first day of NYCC, the pilot really being that confusing, or all of the above, but I felt like I missed an intro somewhere. The show is slick and has exactly the feel I want from a space opera, but I’m hoping it’ll start making a little more sense going forward.

New video time! Intended to get this up on Friday but my immune system had other ideas. *coughhackwheeze*
For the first video of SEASON THREE (whaaaaaat?!), I gave my thoughts on Fox’s Tuesday lineup this fall – Grandfathered, The Grinder, and Scream Queens. I loved one and hated one. Three guesses which is which!
What did you guys think of Scream Queens, and are you looking forward to the other shows premiering this week? Sound off in the comments!
The podcast features myself and two other awesome TV fans who you should follow on Twitter (@Dreyesbo, @leleana). Our goal is to help you figure out what is worth watching and what might be worth skipping now that we’ve reached “peak TV” and it’s physically impossible to watch everything. We spend the first episode introducing ourselves, some of our favorite shows, and talking about the upcoming fall premieres! Give us a listen and please subscribe!
Speaking of fall premieres, with fall TV kicking into high gear tonight I hope to get back into the swing of things around here in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
The summer has flown by and somehow we’ve hit fall TV time already! My fall viewing kicks off with the premiere of Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris tonight.
In keeping with tradition, I’m going to share my anticipated viewing schedule for the fall, in case people are curious. Always subject to change based on quality of pilots and the like, but this should be a pretty good guideline.

I know it’s been a while – I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my summer and as such, not watching as much TV (or at least nothing worth writing/vlogging about). But with the fall TV season right around the corner, you should be seeing much more from me over the next couple of months!
This week’s vlog is all about the amazing You’re the Worst. I wrote a lot about this show last year after falling completely in love with it late in its first season. With season two premiering next week (Wednesday 9/9 at 10:30 on FXX!), I wanted to talk a bit about what is so great about the show and why you should check it out!
Are you guys You’re the Worst fans? Looking forward to season two next week? Let me know in the comments!
I’m back! I’ve been traveling a bit and enjoying my summer and thoroughly neglecting my little corner of the internet. But today I triumphantly return with my ridiculous ramblings about yesterday’s Emmy nominations!
This week, I rambled for a while about all the amazing shows airing on Comedy Central that you guys should be watching. The network has been on roll the last few years with its original series and I couldn’t be happier.
I wound up cutting a segment where I talked about @midnight, which I watch on an almost nightly basis, because the video got too long, but consider that on the list too! I think Chris Hardwick does an amazing job hosting, they get so many amazing guests, and even after two years they’re still coming up with very entertaining games to play every night.
