Imagine watching TV with Sherlock?
January 6th, 2014 under PBS. [ Comments: none ]

On this week’s episode of Sherlock, we saw how good he is at knowing which guy to go after and which guys to ignore at a wedding. So imagine what it would be like to watch television with him? That is exactly what Leigh Lahav Stuff did and let’s just say it wouldn’t be fun because he would spoil everything.
On second thought, maybe he could explain WTF Lost was about because I haven’t met anyone who has been able to do that yet. Also he would save me from watching shows like Hostages to end. You know what I changed my mind, I want my own personal Sherlock to watch TV with!


Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery gets tough!
January 5th, 2014 under PBS, TNT/TBS/TCM. [ Comments: none ]

We all know Michelle Dockery as the proper Lady Mary on Downton Abbey, but she is changing her tune for TNT’s Tough Justice. The demure lady we know is anything but as she fights crime with Michael Chiklis. Just when you thought that Angie Harmon was the toughest lady on the channel that knows drama, Rizzoli seems like more Lady Mary when Connie Tough joins the lineup this month. Even The Commish looks like a lady in this promo.
If you can’t wait for the debut of Tough Justince, then you can watch the season premiere of Downton Abbey on PBS tonight at 9p.


Mel Brooks: Make a Noise will make you laugh out loud a lot!
May 20th, 2013 under Mel Brooks, PBS. [ Comments: none ]

If you are a huge fan of Mel Brooks like me, then American Master’s Mel Brooks: Make a Noise is a must watch for you tonight at 9p on PBS.
The 90 minute special takes a look at Brooks’ illustrious career with the comedic genius doing long sit down interview about his life and work. Not only do we hear him talk about his life and his movies in the present, we get the opportunity to see him talk about both with past interviews throughout his long amazing career. We also get to hear from the people (Carl Reiner and his son Rob Reiner, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Matthew Broderick and so many more) who he has worked with and what they think makes him so special. When you hear his late wife Anne Bancroft talk about how magical their marriage is and how they met, it will bring a tear to your eye. But believe me there are plenty of more laughs during the 90 minute retrospect that includes interviews from today and yesteryear along with clips from his television shows and movies.
The show starts off with Mel Brooks talking about what got him interested in show business. Then he talks about his first role at just 15, and let’s just say it didn’t go well and there is a good reason why it didn’t work for him. Then we start to hear about how he got his start in the biz and working with Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows. He next talks about the struggles of making Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. We also find out how some of the classic scenes of his movies came about. For example Gene Wilder’s freak out scene in The Producers was thanks to having coffee after a long day of work, something he very rarely drank.
There are so many interesting tidbits in the American Masters special, that you are going to want to watch Mel Brooks: Make a Noise tonight at 9p on PBS from the beginning until the end because you don’t want to miss a single reveal of his comedic genius mind.
And if you can’t get enough of this history of Mel Brooks: Part 1 and want to watch it again and again? Then you can own the DVD tomorrow from Shout Factory and it is yours to enjoy whenever you want.

So you don’t want to miss a single second of the last episode for season one of a show that has proven you don’t have to shop around for good television, you just have to watch Jeremy Piven in PBS’s Mr Selfridge to buy everything you would want from a great TV show.


Selfridge’s gets some competition tonight
May 12th, 2013 under PBS. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p on PBS’s Mr Selfridge, Woolworth’s is coming to town. Can the Oxford Street handle both an upscale department store and one for the everyday folk? Not if Mr Selfridge has his way. So you will just have to tune in to see what he does to compete with his American rival. Has he finally met his match in his old friend and now rival? You won’t want to miss the ending to hear the words of wisdom given to Harry from F.W. Woolworth.
Tonight’s episode is not only about the business inside the store, it is about the love business outside the store too. One couple will end, one will be begin and one will use another to get back at the other.
Seriously if you are not watching Mr Selfridge, you are missing out on a truly lovely show that makes gets even more lovely as the weeks go on. I think that this is Jeremy Piven as Mr Selfridge is his best role ever.
