Rock of Love: Charm School

This is less of a review than a “The concept itself is insulting, so I will pass judgment on it having seen only a couple of YouTube bits of the original series and a single episode of this new one” post. Please excuse any inaccuracies that may follow. For those of you who were lucky […]

Joan of Arcadia: Bringeth It On

Joan of Arcadia was a series on CBS for two seasons a few year back which I absolutely loved, and Sci-Fi has recently started showing reruns. It centers on a teenage girl named Joan Girardi who’s recently begun receiving visits and instructions from God. They’re not orders (this version of God is very big on […]

Several prisoners they needed favours from ended up tagging along. Season 2 was […]

Friday Night Lights- Lyla Garrity

When I started writing about Friday Night Lights, I knew at some point I’d have to say something about Lyla Garrity- she’s one of the most prominent female characters in the show. I kept putting it off, because I didn’t like her much. And not in the ‘you’re not supposed to like her’ way like […]
