Disappointments

I’m back. And I’m disappointed. Not in you, you’ve done exactly as I would like and clicked on my link. Or at least read the short descri… …ption. I’m disappointed in two shows I was very excited about. Utopia was the subject of the post before this one. I’m now post film festival, post holiday […]

Utopia Seems Almost Perfect (two episodes in)

As you know if you read the previous post, I am busy interacting with the large screen during these two weeks. This is not a betrayal of the ways of Televigion, merely pre-emptive watching of amazing films that would take time away from my TV watching of the future. Forget the excuses, I’m having a […]

State of the Union Update (a.k.a. Not Much and Then Something)

Hello fellow Televigionists, just a quick update to let you know the reason for the apparent lack of Televigual activity (I’m not sure Televigual has the texture of a word ever to be used again). You see, I – founder of this important gathering of television enthusiasts – have other commitments outwith the small screen. […]

“7 Days in Hell”, Unspecified Days to UK Airdate

This looks great. A lot of people I know and love – Will Forte steals this teaser, Fred Armisen is involved and likely to steal more. A talented and well known actor going silly – often a recipe for success. But will I get to see it with my outdated and much derided stance on sourcing all […]

Promoting Broad City (Not My Job…Or Necessary)

Once again, I find myself talking about a show that seems to have pretty universal acclaim. Broad City is a wonderful success, masterfully achieving the difficult transition from web to television. And it is very funny. It most reminds me of one of my all time favourite sitcoms, Spaced. Obviously it deals with listless twenty-somethings and […]

SunTrap – It’s Probably a Review

I knew very little about SunTrap before some Twitter recommendations earlier this week. I’m pretty sure they were from sources I would ordinarily trust, so I set up a recording. In the spirit of trying to stay current, I thought I’d watch it on premiere night and share some thoughts. I imagine this show will […]

Comedy is Better This Week, Fact

You may already know my feelings on Community. If not, here it goes in 6 words. Once brilliant, then awful, now tired. I’ll also give the same treatment to Parks and Recreation. Pale imitation, too calculated, still funny. Yesterday’s viewing changed this. I watched Community S6 Ep11 “Modern Espionage” and Parks and Recreation S4 Ep11 “The […]

“Untitled” Just Took the Louie Crown (spoilers)

Why am I writing about Louie? It is an almost universally acclaimed television program and comes from a man lauded as the king of stand up by a huge number of my heroes. I know that week on week, I will be impressed and entertained. The latest episode of Season 5 however, managed to surprise […]
