Thursday, September 15, 2011 I'm a contributor!

I'm excited to announce I'll be contributing TV reviews for the awesome! The site features content appealing to fans of comics, sci-fi, and pop-culture on the fringes of those categories. Articles are more opinion and feature-oriented rather than simply recapping TV episodes. There's a really great one up now about a re-imagined Season 6 Angel.

I'm thrilled to be reviewing 4 new fall shows:
  • The Secret Circle - from the makers of The Vampire Diaries and based on books by the same author, L.J. Smith. Thursdays, The CW (Sept. 15)
  • Ringer - Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV and plays twin characters in a dark action-mystery. Tuesdays, The CW (Sept. 13)
  • Pam Am - Christina Ricci stars in a 1960s-era soapy drama about the airline. Sundays, ABC (Sept. 25)
  • Once Upon a Time - Cutie Ginnifer Goodwin is a reimagined Snow White in this curious series by two writers from Lost (they have plugged that pretty hard). Sundays, ABC (October)
I just realized all these shows feature strong female leads. Cool! I admit I have a few doubts on Once Upon a Time, mainly because the staying power a fairy-tale based show seems fragile, despite the resurgence of fairy tale trends in books and movies (two Snow White films will be released in 2012).

As for SlackerHeroes, you can see my first post here where I so helpfully list 10 essential Vampire Diaries episodes from seasons 1 & 2. Picking 10 episodes almost drove me insane, it was downright difficult considering how much plot churns through each episode. If you haven't seen the show, it's a lot of fun, vacillating between campy and a typical teen drama.

I make no excuses for totes belonging to Team Damon, and it's not just because he played Boone on Lost. As my husband said,  his eyes are LASER VILLIAGE. Don't think too hard on that, it doesn't actually mean anything. But look at his eyes, deep into his eyes...

Speaking of this actor and my taste in general, pretty consistent?


  1. How on earth have I missed this site? Thank you for the link :-)

  2. I can't wait to see your reviews for The Secret Circle and Ringer! Personally Ringer was overhyped but Secret Circle was really good. I've read your TVD post over at SlackerHeroes, loved it! But I think The House Guest (Season 2, episode 16) should have been included too.

  3. It was so hard to narrow down the episodes! With a show like TVD where so much happens in every episode, it's almost impossible.

    I still haven't watched my DVR'ed Ringer episode but I heard mixed reviews. There's actually a write-up about it over at slackerheroes that another writer did if you want to check it out. Thanks!
