(Stop reading if you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Downton Abbey. Seriously. Stop.) Back when I wrote this post about Arrested Development, it occurred to me that basically every single TV show I’ve ever loved has declined in quality over the years (the exception being Arrested Development itself, likely because it only lasted three … More Why Can’t Television Shows Just Die Gracefully?
For the last few years, I’ve tried to avoid watching new TV shows when the fall rolled around. For awhile, it was because I was traveling constantly for work and was never home to watch television anyway. Last fall, it was because it was 1L year and I needed to study a lot. This year? … More New Fall Television: What Are You Watching?
Last week, I mentioned that I was a bit fatigued by Project Runway, but this week it occurred to me that this season is actually off to a promising start. The All-Stars episodes are one hour, instead of an hour and a half like Season 10, and I think the brisk pace suits the show … More Project Runway All-Stars: S2, E2

Overall, this episode was a bit “meh.” I wasn’t terribly inspired by any of … More Project Runway: Season 10, Episode 12
I know people have mixed reactions to New Girl (you either love it or you think Zooey Deschanel is a twee, tight-wearing, not-at-all-adorkable annoyance). Me? I love it, clearly, and that’s largely because of Schmidt, the breakout character and frequent saving grace of season one. Schmidt is hilarious, and Max Greenfield is flat-out brilliant in … More Tuesday Top Ten: Schmidt Moments
This week’s Project Runway was one of the more amusing episodes in recent memory, as the six remaining designers bumbled their way through caring for their “babies.” While this was a completely ridiculous premise for a challenge, I decided to forgive the show for it because it was so damn hilarious. Let’s discuss. The Challenge: … More Project Runway: Season 10, Episode 11
