The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #145
Welcome to the TV Blog's new home!
I really posted the TV Blog late last week! Whoops!
I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed "Supernatural".
The first two episodes this season were awesome! I'm sure
this isn't the last we'll see of Crowley...
The second episode of "The
Flash" was not quite as good as the first. It was a bit
too childish and preachy. I hope it gets better.
I put up a lot more
reviews on our site, so check them out! We usually put
up a bunch every week.
This morning I interviewed "Grimm" star David Giuntoli in a
conference call. I enjoyed speaking with him about the show!
This is one of those shows I don't actually watch, but I'm
sure I would love it if I did...just fell behind on it and
never caught up. Thankfully, doing some research online
helped me figure out some intelligent questions to ask!
When I phone into these calls, the publicity people always
ask for my name, and the spelling of it, and the site's
name. I'm pretty used to them mis-pronouncing my name, and
often my site's name. Today was pretty bad, they did both
and somehow my site's name because TV MegaCastle. LOL!
My husband is very super picky about what he watches on TV,
so we only have a few shows we watch together. They're
almost all comedy, including "The Colbert Report" and "The
Daily Show". Both were so funny tonight! They usually are,
but these were particularly good.
I've been watching "Penny
Dreadful" on DVD to
review for the
site. Great show. Sometimes a little slow, so I
fast-forwarded through those parts (and through the sex
scenes - nothing against them, but they're pointless). I was
worried it might be too gross, like "American Horror Story",
but it's not. There's a very fine line between being
scary/creepy and gross/grotesque. I really don't like the
latter, nor do I like horror shows or movies that are just
depressing, where there is no hope or bright outlook. This
one is much better than all that.
Now I'm watching "General
Hospital". It's been pretty good lately. I have 3 more
DVD's to watch, and then, hopefully, I can start catching up
on other shows.
Tonight's "Colbert Report" and "Daily Show" were okay, not
as good as yesterday.
I went to get my hair cut today, and I had to wait for a
while, so I read an US Magazine. I didn't know half of the
people they were talking about! I know about actors and
TV-related people, and some movie people, but I don't care
about celebrity gossip for the most part. I don't follow the
Kardashians and all those other reality show people. Nothing
against people who do! It's just not my kind of thing.
I had a nice interview this morning with Melissa Joan Hart,
star of "Melissa and Joey"! It went great. She seems very
hard working. She's directing a new Halloween episode that's
coming out October 22nd.
Monday I might get to interview Jill Larson, who's most
known for playing Opal on "All
My Children". She's in a new horror movie "The Taking of
Deborah Logan". Woo hoo!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I've been a little lazy
this week, so I've got a lot of work to catch up on this
weekend. This week's
Primetime News is
here Next week's will be up at
here. I usually put up the new stuff on the
weekend, so check back!
I wonder why "Haven"
moved to Fridays? I hope it's still doing well. I really
love that show. The last two weeks' where they switched
bodies was fabulous, and the end of this week's with Audrey
returning was so great! My only complaint - and it's a small
one - is that the guy with the switching Trouble had the
last name "Doohan" but they kept pronouncing it like Doo-HAN
(rhymes with toucan) instead of DOO-en (rhymes with ruin).
We watched Friday's "Real Time with Bill Maher", but it was
awful. Not funny at all. WOW. Usually we find him very
funny. His timing was even off and he flubbed a lot of
jokes. I wonder what happened? "South
Park" this week was also bad. We couldn't even finish
I run our site's
daytime soap transcripts. Check them out! New ones go up
I pulled a couple of muscles in my legs somehow this week,
so I've been sleeping a lot and trying to rest, and not
working as much as usual.
This week's "Doctor
Who" was pretty good for a change. Not the usual
episode, at least -- nice when it's a good one.
I really love "Once
Upon a Time". and it's never been better. I love how
they bring in new characters from Disney all of the time and
poke gentle fun at the characters. This week's was great
with "Fantasia" stuff, especially the broom and the music
from "Sorcerer's Apprentice". Here's something to think
about. When they showed Rumple back in time, he told Anna
that he knew who she was already because names were his
thing. Now that he's in Storybook with his powers, can he
still do that? And if so, shouldn't he know that Henry is
trying to get information out of him? But anyway, I love
this show so much and could watch it every day...
I was looking at the
cover on our site and especially at the current shows,
many of which I'm still building (it takes a long time). "Law
and Order: SVU" is the only NBC show we cover. I tend to
only cover shows I really like and watch, and unfortunately
most of the NBC shows have not been ones I like too much. Or
if I do like them, by the time I get around to thinking
about building a page, they cancel the show. This happened
last year with "Revolution". They have a lot of shows that I
like ok but not enough to watch regularly, like "The
Blacklist", and "Mysteries of Laura". I fear that this new
won't last long, even though comic book shows are big now.
It's okay, but the first episode was not nearly as good as "Arrow",
or "Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D." I like "Grimm" but never caught up on
watching it. I like some of their comedies, but...not that
much. We do cover quite a few shows on ABC, CBS, FOX, and
The CW, as well as some primetime ones. I would have built a
site for "Crossbones", but that one didn't last too long.
I didn't watch too much TV this weekend other than the few
I've mentioned here... I slept a lot and otherwise did
Well, I caught up on a lot of things on the site this
weekend, and now I have to get back to this tedious job of
fixing/changing the META tags in a lot of the pages... this
is why people often give up making their webpages-- because
they like doing the fun stuff but hate doing the boring
stuff. Eventually, they either lose interest in whatever
subject the website is about, or they hate doing the boring
stuff and it makes them just give up on the site completely.
I admit I hate doing that boring stuff, too! But I'm not one
to give up easily. :)
I watched "The Good Wife" - it's always so great!
The way they weave the plots and character is amazing to
watch. I love seeing all the great actors they have on
there. Not just the regular ones but the visitors, like
Michael J. Fox, Kyle MacLachlan, Jill Hennessy et al. I
really loved "Crossing Jordan" and of course "Twin Peaks" so
it was great to see those last two.
Earlier this morning I got to interview Jill Larson, who
stars in the movie "The Taking of Deborah Logan". It sounds
like a fun scary movie for Halloween. She's most known for
playing Opal on "All My Children", and before that, she was
also the psycho Ursula on "One Life to Live" (that's where I
first saw her). It was wonderful to chat with her! Her
movie's out tomorrow in some select theaters, I believe, and
via download, and then in November it comes out on VOD and
We watched Sunday's "Family
Guy", which was pretty funny. I also enjoyed "The
Simpsons". Their tribute to Stephen Kubrick was outstanding!
Maybe not the most laugh-out-loud funny thing ever, but it
was brilliant in its way...
Hospital" was good. I'm glad Lucas is finally getting a
storyline! I don't know like how things are going with
Franco and Heather. I prefer him as sane and kind, not crazy
and vengeful (although Carly certainly deserves it).
Franco just said that tomorrow is Halloween, his wedding.
They're dragging this out for ten days??? Yikes.
