Parenthood 5×09 ‘Election Day’: Do you wanna be my girlfriend?

This episode was just so-so, but like Kristina, I guess they can’t all be winners, so let’s jump right in. Amber needs to dump Ryan. I’m really bothered by the fact that we didn’t hear anything more about that storyline after seeing Zeek at the police station, thanks to Kristina’s election. The election and Crosby’s […]

Parenthood 5×07 ‘Speaking of Baggage’: Suitcases are for trips

I can never let my husband watch this episode, lest he might ask me to surprise him at work like Julia did for Joel this week. Lucky for me, he works at the airport and I have no idea what I would do with our 8-month-old son. Speaking of kids, where were Victor and Sydney […]

Parenthood 5×06 ‘The M Word’: Four carrots

I’m really glad I had the privilege of starting this episode in the wee hours of the morning and finishing it after I took a shower because I do my best thinking in the shower. While in the shower (how many times can I say shower?), I thought about Joel and Julia’s storyline and came […]

Parenthood 5×05 ‘Let’s Be Mad Together’: It’s fixed

I love how this show has characters whose story lines relate to each other so well. We haven’t seen a whole lot of that this season, but it’s back this week in full force. There’s Joel and Crosby, Camille and Julia, and even Max and Kristina a little bit. The storyline that disappointed me most […]

Parenthood 5×04 ‘In Dreams Begin Responsibilities’: Hank said I could have $20 if…

Remember what I said last week about Zeek and Camille having zero interaction with anyone else besides each other? Well, we didn’t even see Camille this week, but there was so much tenderness between Victor and Zeek, which I loved. He’s clearly acclimated well to the family, as he fights with Sydney like brothers and […]

Parenthood 5×03 ‘Nipple Confusion’: Worst episode title ever

I really expected more drama out of this episode, especially from Julia and Joel. Like any promo for any show typically does, this week’s promo hyped up the issues of holding Victor back a grade and Julia confiding in Ed way more than necessary. I know that Julia and Joel aren’t the most exciting couple […]

Parenthood 5×02 ‘All Aboard Who’s Coming Aboard’: I saw you two wrestling

I love having Max’s quotes in my title, even though he probably won’t see a lot of action this season. I’ve loved watching him grow as a character, and I’ve loved watching Max Burkholder grow as an actor, probably because he’s the character I relate to least. It’s just a lot of fun watching him […]

Parenthood 5×01 ‘It Has to Be Now’: Don’t let it bite you

I’m so glad Parenthood is back for a fifth season, but this year’s premiere wasn’t the emotional powerhouse that last year’s was. Maybe it’s because I watched all of last season under the influence of pregnancy hormones, or because NBC ordered 22 episodes this season, instead of the jam-packed 15 episodes they had last year. […]

Camp 1×10 ‘Last Days of Summer’: What are breakfast nachos?

I am really sad to see this show go. No, it hasn’t been renewed or cancelled by NBC quite yet, but I’m not holding my breath. I will say that the show’s rookie season was a breath of fresh air from a summer full of network singing shows, USA procedurals, and teen romance on ABC […]


Camp 1×09: ‘CIT Overnight’: Worst summer ever

Is it just me, or did this episode feel like the season finale? Of course, there’s still one more episode left, and Mack still has to choose between Roger and Cole. Then there’s Sarah and Robbie, who are cool all of a sudden because “life” happened to Robbie, but we’ll talk about that in a […]


We’re Pumped for the 2013-14 Season!

When I was a kid, I loved summer because I could stay home and watch TV all day. Now I’m an adult who stays home all day year-round and every year I anticipate the fall because summer TV sucks and fall brings the start of awesome returning shows and new favorites. I asked some of […]

Camp 1×08 ‘Harvest Moon’: Greg’s car

Of course Greg would drive a Probe. I can’t be the only one who noticed that. I fully agree with Marina that she’s a total idiot. If you don’t have a driver’s license, you’re either too young or too stupid to be having sex, as is evident by her need for a pregnancy test. She […]

Camp 1×06 ‘Parents’ Weekend’: Just alright

This episode had a bit of a cliffhanger feel to it, though it could have been even more suspenseful. I think they wrapped things up appropriately with Kip and his food poisoning, but the episode could have left us viewers wondering if Sarah would decide to move to New York with Miguel. Instead, she let […]

Camp 1×05 ‘Heat Wave’: Older and handsome

I could open this article by talking about how angry I am that Sarah is cheating on Robbie with Miguel, but we all knew it was going to happen anyways. Of course, she is making a huge mistake because Robbie is that rare, exceptional type of guy who saves gay men from beestings and finds […]

HuffPost Live Interview with Suburgatory’s Carly Chaikin!

I got to interview Carly Chaikin for HuffPost Live today! She’s really down to earth and nothing like Dalia, her character on Suburgatory, and she sort of reminds me of a younger Busy Phillips…not that Busy Phillips is at all old! Anyways, I had a blast participating in the interview, so check it out!   […]

Camp 1×04 ‘Valentine’s Day in July’: No biting in the bouncy house!

This show is so infuriating, which is a great sign for me. If I’m so emotionally invested in the characters that their actions drive me to frustration, it usually means the writing and acting is decent. Sadly, it’s a scripted show on NBC, which probably means we won’t be heading back to Camp Little Otter […]
