Looking for something new to record or stream? Here’s what we’re recommending you watch this week: Sunday, March 22nd: The Last Man on Earth (FOX): There’s still time to get into this quirky comedy that’s asking questions about marriage, fidelity and toilet pools in an apocalyptic world. Neighbors With Benefits (A&E): A reality show about married couples who are “in the lifestyle”; but, if you’re looking for better production values and a better soundtrack on the same topic, check out 2008’s “Swingtown” instead. Monday, March 23rd: Teen Mom (MTV): Entering its 11th season, this MTV show Continue Reading

I spent my “Pi Day of the Century” in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest® Interactive Festival.*  It was my first time speaking at SXSW — and my first time attending!  My talk was “Consumer Data: the Good, the Bad, the Not-So-Ugly.” The discussion started with defining what it means to be a designer. As a designer, we are advocates for the consumer and empathize deeply with them. It is our job to delicately balance the needs of the consumer, the needs of the business, and technical constraints, with Continue Reading

Looking for something new to record or stream? Here’s what we’re recommending you watch this week: Sunday, March 15th:  NCAA Basketball Championship Selection Show (CBS): An hour of cameras pointed at basketball teams all waiting with baited breath to find out if they get the chance to win a trip to one of America’s premiere vacation destinations, Indianapolis. The Royals (E!): It may be terrible or it may be amazing. Either way, it’s the biggest dose of Elizabeth Hurley we’ve gotten since she played a robot that seduced Mike Myers in 1997. Monday, March Continue Reading

One of the greatest things about TiVo is it’s ability to pause a show to give you a glimpse of something you might have otherwise missed. It didn’t take long for show creators to start adding in Easter Eggs that only viewers with this magical ability would be able to find; but in the last few years, some have taken it a bit further. For years, whenever a character in a movie or TV show mentioned a phone number, they used the semi-fictional “555” telephone exchange (with a few, notable exceptions). But Continue Reading

Looking for something new to record or stream? Here’s what we’re recommending you watch this week: Sunday, March 8th:  Who Do You Think You Are? (TLC): The 6th season of this family tree exploration launches with a look into the genealogy of our favorite “Big Brother”-hosting cyborg, the Chen-bot herself. We can’t wait to find out which factory you came from, Julie! Night of Too Many Stars (Comedy Central): All your favorite funny people come together for a good cause. Watch as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and all their friend unite to help fight Continue Reading

When Emily Brontë wrote Wuthering Heights, she probably wasn’t anticipating that it would be adapted into a teen movie. It would be great to get her thoughts on the project, but since she died in 1848, and Ghost Whisperer only exists in reruns, we’ll just have to assume she’s pleased as punch that her only novel has been adapted for Lifetime’s Wuthering High School. I love teen dramas, but as a certified teen drama connoisseur, I simply won’t be able to give this film two thumbs up unless the following Continue Reading

Looking for something new to record or stream? Here’s what we’re recommending you watch this week: Sunday, March 1st: Once Upon a Time (ABC): Spoiler Alert: Literally everyone is related to everyone else in some way or another. It’s what keeps the show going. Well, that and the deep Disney bench. Last Man on Earth (FOX): As long as one of these men is MacGruber, we’re sold. Actually, from what we hear, this is one to watch! Secrets and Lies (ABC): Oh how the Ryan Phillippe has fallen. Monday, March 2nd: The Following (FOX): Kevin Bacon’s Continue Reading

This Friday, Netflix releases the third season of the hugely popular (and often binged) show “House of Cards.” Since it will be tempting to attempt to watch the entire season in this first weekend, we thought it would be best to provide some tips to give you the best chance of not being spoiled by someone in your office on Monday morning: 1. Make sure you have plenty of supplies to last the weekend. Suggestions include at least one bottle of Southern Comfort and this recipe for bona fide southern Continue Reading

If you’ve ever traveled internationally with your spouse, then you know that the Beatles got it wrong when they sang “all you need is love.” Love is nice, but a translator is better. International travel is stressful. Navigating new metro systems and adapting to foreign customs can be a lot to deal with for any couple, which is why I’ve always thought it was a mistake for couples to compete together on The Amazing Race. It’s hard enough deciding who gets to control the remote, or whose family to visit Continue Reading
