Now that the 2012-13 TV season is “officially” over, I thought I’d get some folks together and talk about a bunch of different things that happened between September and May. This is the 2012-13 season wrap roundtable. Previously on the roundtable: Shows changing over the season Cory: When you think back on this season, who […]Read more "2012-2013 Season Wrap-Up Roundtable: Defining Individuals of the Season"
I’m a bit short on time today, but I wanted to jot down a few thoughts on the very-good season premiere of Justified. When series take the kind of leap in quality that Justified did in its second season (although I maintain that somehow, we’ve retroactively decided the first season isn’t that great and that’s […]Read more "Season Premiere Review: Justified, “The Gunfighter”"
It is that time again folks! The end of the year is upon us and that means it is time to look back on the highs, lows and WTFs in television from the past 12 months. There is a lot to reflect on in regard to television 2011. Charlie Sheen went crazy. Well, crazier. Comedy […]Read more "TV Surveillance’s Best of 2011: Best Performances, Drama"
The 2011 Primetime Emmys are so close! September 18th to be exact. Up until the ceremony airs on FOX, I’ll be working through most of the major categories and discussing who could win, who should win and of course, who will win. I’ll likely be tackling two categories in each post, just so you know. Hey […]Read more "2011 Primetime Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series"
I’ve done my wishful thinking, now it’s time to make some last-minute official predictions for this year’s Emmy nominations. As you might notice, this “ballot” is much different than my dream one. This makes me sad, but oh well. I’ll have some reflections on the nominations after they are announced on Monday THURSDAY (thanks to Myles […]Read more "2011 Emmy Nomination Predictions"
It’s that time again, folks. The Emmy nominations will be announced on July 14, which means I have almost an entire month to flood this space with hopes, dreams and predictions about what could happen come nomination time. To kick things off, I’ll be bringing back the Dream Emmy Ballot. It’s something I did last […]Read more "2011 Dream Emmy Ballot: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series"
“It’s not your problem. Not today.” I don’t usually preface my reviews with quotes from the episode. It’s something like a lot of good reviewers do (some regularly, some occasionally) and I guess it’s a way for me to separate myself. The format of these kind of post-air reviews is mostly standardized now, that’s my […]Read more "Season Finale — Justified, “Bloody Harlan”"
There was A LOT of hype for this episode of Justified. People were calling this best episode of the series yet, the best episode of 2011 and so on and so forth. For the most part, that hype is, well, justified. “Brother’s Keeper” is a fantastic episode of television and most certainly one of the […]Read more "Justified, “Brother’s Keeper”"
In my review of last week’s Justified, I talked about how that episode served as a nice pivot point for the rest of the season. While I still stand by that observation, this week’s episode more overtly points out those sorts of things. So many of the characters and smaller problems introduced in the first […]Read more "Justified, “The Spoil”"
I haven’t been writing about Justified on a weekly basis because of various scheduling issues but in short, I’ve really enjoyed this season. And I’m still short on time today but I wanted to get a few thoughts down on “Save My Love” because it was just that good. Anyway, the world of Justified is […]Read more "Justified, “Save My Love”"
