Television Breakdowns

Killjoys

If there was a sleeper hit this last summer that I wish everyone had caught onto it was KILLJOYS. The series follow a three-man “killjoy” operation made up of Dutch, Johnny, and newly joined D’Avin (who is also Johnny’s brother). They are bounty hunters that work for “the rack” and have zero political affiliations. The […]

3rd Rock From The Sun

For me personally, 3rd Rock from the Sun is the last high concept sitcom. That is not to say there have not been any since, but when you look back at the history of television there have been so many incredibly over-the-top series that lasted for years and years, like Gilligan’s Island, Mork and Mindy, and Green Acres. Often very […]

Once Upon A Time

I love a soap opera. OUAT is not your traditional “oh no, my boyfriend’s my brother!” kind of soap opera, instead relying on the fantastical to create ridiculous plotlines… which does actually put it more in the vein of PASSIONS and PORT CHARLES (RIP). Anyways, the primary family tree is so insane, “soap” is the […]

Flight Of The Conchords

This is basically a FBF at this point, sorry for the tardiness you guys! This week has been a little nuts with some awesome life changes and new writing opportunities. So excited but for now let’s get back to breakdowns! Since TV Writers posted my WCW for Kristen Schaal, and I focused on LAST MAN […]

Last Man On Earth

Oh shit, is it an hour ’til midnight already? I wrote out this blog at noon and have yet to actually type up and post the damn thing. Shoot! Last season, one of my favorite surprise hits was LAST MAN ON EARTH. If you have not seen the show, do not read after the break. […]

Blindspot

IT’S FALL! IT’S FINALLY HERE! ALL NEW SHOWS AND SO MANY ARE STARTING THIS WEEK! I’M SO EXCITED! I’M SO EXCITED! I’M SO… SCARED! Yes, that was an incredibly corny television joke that has been going on for about twenty-plus years now but it is kind of true! I love to analyze new programming every […]

Wings

After breaking down MADAM SECRETARY, I found myself going down an early 90’s sitcom path and wound up craving one of my favorite sitcoms from growing up: WINGS. Yes, I could have gone with THE NAKED TRUTH starring Tea Leoni, but I couldn’t find it easily. Also, prior to FRIENDS, WINGS (starring Tim Daly) felt […]

Madam Secretary

This show has a strong following but definitely flew under the radar. 2014/2015 had an unprecedented number of new shows across platforms, and CBS’s “older” audience persona limits the number of people who could potentially watch the show. On top of that, you have the amazing Tea Leoni in a role that was developed when […]
