A Bit Unhappy About 2018’s Calendars

For quite a number of years now I have had television and movie-themed calendars on my walls. Mostly about TV shows I enjoyed at the time or used to enjoy. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Smallville. Here’s a small sample of calendars that I had over the years: 2010: 2014: 2016: 2017: I always…

Purchase Diary 2014 – May / June

Friends: The Complete Series (1994 – 2004) May 2nd – €53.20 (CA$84.99) @ Amazon.ca (paid partially via gift certificate) Collection no. 12686 – 12705 But I’m a bit disappointed. It’s really my fault because I didn’t check this beforehand (I just didn’t expect it): It’s only the broadcast version. As someone who knows the key…

Chuck Lorre, Where Art Thou?

I used to love Chuck Lorre shows. I loved them back in the days of the first few seasons of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory and even the beginning of Mike & Molly. But now? Not so much. But let me break this down by series. Two and a Half…

Amazon (again)

In recent months Amazon has become quite a controversial topic in Germany. It all started with an “undercover” documentation for one of our TV stations. I watched the docu online after everyone and their dog wrote about it and the first “Boycott!” outcries were made. I don’t know if what the docu claimed was actually…

TV Junkie: A History

I watched a lot of TV shows over the years. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. And I watched accross the board. Keep in mind that I’m only 35 years old. I watched The Guiding Light for two years straight (it’s a soap opera whose German title was the Springfield Story)….

TV Season 2009/2010 Diary, CW 18

Deutsche Version | CW 13-17 | CW 13-19 Chuck 3×15 Chuck versus the Role Models Again, I’ve enjoyed this episode very much. Loved the tiger even without Mike Tyson. I also liked the hint to an oncoming arc in the end. I strongly suspect that the Chuck gang and the Awesome family will soon cross…

TV Season 2009/2010 Diary, CW 50-01

Deutsche Version | CW 46-50 | CW 01-02 How I Met Your Mother 5×11 Last Cigarette Ever I am soo glad I never started smoking… It was an OK episode but except for the “time travel” nothing noteworthy happened. The Big Bang Theory 3×11 The Maternal Congruence That was a great episode, Leonard’s mother (Diane…

TV Shows – A Decade in Retrospect

TV Season 2009/2010 Diary, CW 37-46

Deutsche Version | CW 45 | CW 40-47 The Good Wife 1×06 Conjugal I love the unusual (and yet serious) way how they solve their cases and I like how they often find a way to involve Alicia’s husband in the case even when she has to sacrifice his reputation in the end. Two and…
