  • I’ll be watching the Pilot of Smash tonight on Ovation. They’re going to be running the series from the beginning every Friday night, starting tonight. Though I enjoyed the show till the bitter end, I know I’m in the minority. However, I think we can all agree that the pilot is a repeat to revisit.

  • LOL! Oh Disney. What are you doing? Wet Side Story? If that’s not already porn, it will be soon.

  • Well, I may watch the Disney teen movie as a nostalgia thing — I watched the original Beach Blanket movies in the sixties when they first came out.

    I would also like to mention that there is a great new series on Reelz called KING, not to be confused with King and Maxwell. The premise and plot are actually a bit similar, and it is definitely worth checking out, although this one is a bit raunchier and more plain spoken.

    And of course, CONTINUUM is not to be missed.

  • Continuum continues to blow me away. I actually downloaded the first 8 episodes from this new season because I couldn’t wait, watched them all and now record and watch them again on SyFy. Rachel Nichols is unbelievable in this season.

  • “Think High School Musical meets Beach Blanket Bingo meets Back to the Future”? Meets Pleasantville most of all.
