    Sorkin Around the Christmas Tree: The Holiday Episodes

    On the one hand, Favourites pieces are supposed to be on the shorter side, where you’re supposed to write a brief blurb for each thing you’re writing about. But we’re talking Aaron Sorkin here. There is no way to properly kvell, even just a bit, about his shows, let alone his holiday shows, and keep […] More

    Andy Botwin and Weeds — The Great (and Careful) Work Begins

    We know the basic premise of Jenji Kohan’s Weeds, right? Widowed suburban mom makes ends meet by selling pot, becomes danger junkie, shenanigans ensue. The show is of course about Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker), the mom in question. I, however, always seem to go for the character actor sidekick of a show like this […] More

    I’m Only Here For The Dog — Canine TV Superstars

    I’m a dog person. I grew up with collies, and then when you move to the city and live on a budget that doesn’t allow for things like a dog walker, you have two choices—grow to like small dogs, or become a cat person. I went the latter route, and while I love my feline […] More

    Clarice S1E5: “Get Right With God”

    “What does it feel like to be so beautiful?” That’s a line from the book (and, it turns out, pretty much the title of the very next episode of CBS’s Clarice), and it never made it into Silence of the Lambs. Jame Gumb, aka Buffalo Bill, says it to Clarice Starling as he lies dying, […] More
