On TV: Will the General Tso’s Revenge reviews ever return?


Maybe. My DVR is 81 percent full. My desire to watch most of the shows recorded is about 32 percent, plus or minus 4 percent. I’ve considered pulling the DVR, dropping it off at the cable company and just going with live sporting events and the various streaming services.

This, by the way, isn’t a rant against the quality of TV. I’m not going to break my wheel in that old wagon rut. I got a promotion at work. And I’m really into my job right now. I’m not as into watching so-so TV programs.

I might come back around to it. It’s all a big maybe.

3-sentence review of “Scorpion: Talismans”


Scorpion” | Season 1, Episode 10: “Talismans” | Date: Nov. 24, 2014

  1. For some reason, I was watching “Scorpions” live and they broke in with the news of the grand jury decision Ferguson, which was tense, scary and sad.
  2. Then the show came back on and the team of geniuses hung out with Navy SEALS on a rescue mission in Bosnia where landmines can be disabled with some tinsnips and the whole things ends in a music video about how all the characters are in love.
  3. TV is very stupid.

On TV: What happened to all the reviews?


I got a new job at work. It’s fun. But it is taking up more time, so my shows are backlogged. I’ll catch up soon. Or I won’t and the blog will become something else. Until then, enjoy the Morning Mixtapes and Snapshots.

5-sentence review of ‘The Big Bang Theory: The Septum Deviation’


The Big Bang Theory” | Season 8, Episode 9: “The Septum Deviation”
| Date: Nov. 13, 2014

  1. I like “The Big Bang Theory” when Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) quirks are revealed to be basically childish desires not to lose someone he loves or to be hurt.
  2. I don’t like show when it resorts to dull banter about people being married getting on one another’s nerves as it did this week with Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch).
  3. I’m starting to think less is more when it comes to Penny (Kaley Cuoco).
  4. I know less is more when it comes to Raj (Kunal Nayyar).
  5. But Amy (Mayim Bialik) is finally starting grow on me.
