Sundays are the perfect time to do those things that you’ve been meaning to do. A productive person uses this free time to do chores, such as laundry or gardening. I, on the other hand, decided that last Sunday was a good time to binge-watch HBO’s The Leftovers. The general premise of the series is that two percent of the world’s population disappeared three years ago. So when we’re introduced to all the characters, they’re still coping with the disappearances of their loved ones and trying to figure out what Continue Reading

Most people don’t know this, but when you start watching a new TV show, you enter into an implicit agreement. For the show’s part, it is agreeing to provide entertainment. This includes interesting characters and a compelling story. For your part, you are agreeing to accept the world created in the series. So in a series, if 2+2=5, then so be it. I accept that. And by accepting a show’s logic, I open myself up to enjoying that show. Most people abide by this unspoken agreement, but I’ve noticed a Continue Reading

No, it’s not a bad gig when you need to go onto the Red Carpet at the Emmy® Awards for work.  This year, we decided that we wanted to know what the stars were watching on their own DVRs.  We talked to everyone we could, including Matt LeBlanc, William H. Macy, and “Game of Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin. Yep, it was awesome.  Check out @TiVo on Twitter and Instagram to see all of the folks we managed to corral for a moment or two in the madness.   So, Continue Reading

Shark Week is over, but the fun does not have to be – Check out the Top Moments from Shark Week 2014!  

Showtime recently premiered a new series about the seven deadly sins. For those of you not in the know, these include lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. As evidenced by the show’s first episode on gluttony, these sins can get pretty heavy (pun intended). And I for one do not have it in me to worry about one more serious issue. So I’ve decided that when it comes to this whole eternal damnation thing, I’ll just keep a positive attitude. As David Bowie sings in Labyrinth…“It’s only forever, not Continue Reading
