Fall TV Guide: “The Walking Dead” Was Halloween-tastic


Two months ago, Sunday night was the best night for television thanks to the “True Blood” and “Mad Men” double header. Now we get a series that combines elements of both. “The Walking Dead” is the new series from AMC, the channel that brought you “MM.” And it’s a gross-out monster shocker, in the vein of “TB.” Keep reading »

Fall TV Guide: “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Premieres Tonight!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” premieres tonight on Bravo at 10 p.m. While I think I have the least in common with these women, who quite possibly might be the wealthiest women in all the “Housewives” franchises, the upcoming attacks, accusations, and the demise of at least one marriage has me jonesing for a new reality TV fix.

Fall TV Guide: Vanilla Ice On A Home Makeover Show?


Here’s an answer to the question “Whatever happened to Vanilla Ice?” Apparently, after his rise and even more spectacular fall, he’s become a house flipper. He rehabbed and sold his first house 15 years ago, and has done many since then. Now the DIY Network has made a show following him on his biggest project yet—a 7,000-square-foot mansion.

Fall TV Guide: “No Ordinary Family” Not Your Usual Superpower Show


Did you like “The Incredibles”? Yeah, pretty much everyone did. So it seems like kind of a brilliant idea that ABC created a live-action show that tells a very similar story. “No Ordinary Family” is about a police-sketch artist father who plans a trip to Brazil for his family because they’re increasingly disconnected and no one is getting along. During the plane ride, however, they crash into a body of water that gives them superpowers. Dad Jim is invincible and can fly, like two “Heroes” characters put together. Mother Stephanie has super speed, while daughter Daphne can hear others’ thoughts, and son JJ, well, we can’t tell what his power is yet. Keep reading »

Fall TV Guide: “Sister Wives,” The Real-Life “Big Love”


Last night, I had dinner over at my mom’s apartment with my brother and his girlfriend and we got to talking about reconsidering the legality (or illegality) of plural marriage, i.e. polygamy. Putting aside personal feelings on the idea of polygamy, what we ended up concluding was that the government shouldn’t consider marriage a religious institution at all, as it violates the notion of separation between church and state, and that marriage, if anything, needs to remain a legal union between two individuals — no more — so that the monetary benefits don’t reward those who marry multiple people for so-called religious reasons or otherwise.

So why am I blathering on about plural marriage anyway? Because last night was the series premiere of “Sister Wives,” the reality show about a man and his three (soon to be four!) wives and their flock of children living in Utah. And, for the most part, it was boring. Keep reading »
