Television Breakdowns

Playing House

One of my favorite apps that no one knows about is Seeso. It’s from NBC and it’s comedy-centric and it’s amazing. Do yourself a favor and go get it. While you’re there, check out Playing House, a half hour comedy that airs on USA. The series follows two lifelong friends who decide to raise a baby together […]

UnReal

Last summer, Lifetime was in the midst of rebranding. Their classic, romantic melodramas were being pushed to sister station Hallmark while Lifetime focused on millennial viewers through unauthorized TV movies based on the behind-the-scenes drama of 90s sitcoms, and dark comedies that mocked their old brand. While younger viewers slowly moved over, critics pay too […]

BROOKLYN 9-9

Brooklyn 9-9. I may have already done this show but I had limited time today and I love this episode so… hopefully it’s not a repeat or you don’t mind if it is. This week also does not have a theme because I am (happily) very busy writing in free time but I still love […]

Roswell

If there is one YA-turned-TV show that reminded me of The 5th Wave it’s Roswell. My older sister was obsessed with this show from the moment it premiered. I never considered myself a sci-fi kid so I avoided, but the WB lineup of the late-90s/early-2000s was incredibly addictive and Roswell was a huge part of that. In picking an […]

The 100

Whenever I say this people look at me like I’m nuts, but I absolutely, 100% mean it when I say The 100 is the best written one-hour drama on any network right. When I say that people immediately throw out the usual award-winning shows… Game Of Thrones, last year’s break out hit Mr. Robot, or the underrated/under-seen Manhattan. I’m not saying […]

Absolutely Fabulous

When I was four-five years old, my sisters and I had this fun habit of watching Comedy Central ad nauseum in the morning before leaving for a half day of school. The line-up was amazing: Kids In The Hall, SNL (the Phil Hartman/Dana Carvey years), Black Adder, and most importantly: Absolutely Fabulous. Watch this series […]

Broad City

All right, it’s a day late but here is the break down for Broad City! The show follows two best friends in their twenties living in New York City. If you haven’t watched this show you are seriously missing out. For people who have said for years that “women aren’t funny,” Comedy Central sure has been […]

Firefly

Wanting to continue the science fiction theme of the week left me with one clear option for our throwback series: FIREFLY. The gone-too-soon series redefined world creation on television and its impact is still felt today. Unfortunately for the show, Fox struggled with advertising and finding an audience for the series and it was cancelled […]
