Assorted Musings on 2014 TV

8 Jan

Well, nothing will ever disappoint me as much as the ending of LOST, so with that being said, 2014 was a pretty good year for television. Dan Harmon came back to Community, and while it still wasn’t as good as its first three seasons, at least it felt like the same show and not the [...]

LOST: One Year Later, the Ending Still Sucks

25 May

For a while, LOST was a guilty pleasure. The girl I had a crush on in high school was equally obsessed with the show, but when I arrived at NYU most of my friends and roommates were of the “I don’t watch TV” variety, not because they’re the kind of dicks who think TV is [...]

Alex’s Best of 2010, Day One- Television

23 Dec

And so it begins! To be honest, this is my favorite time of the year because it gives me an excuse to indulge in one of my greatest pleasures: list-making. I kick things off with my Top 10 television episodes of the year. 2010 was an exciting, if uneven year for television. The dead walked, [...]

Wormhole in a Basement- The Event Recap

26 Oct

I really want to love The Event, and while its first season has been less than perfect, it has been engaging enough to get me excited each Monday night. I learned of two television writers who live blog comments about the show via Twitter, along the lines of Mystery Science Theater 3000. At first they [...]

Alex’s Halloween Countdown, Day 4

14 Oct

Today, I’ve decided to do the first half of my Fall TV Roundup for the fourth installment of my Halloween Countdown, focusing exclusively on the horror & sci-fi shows I watch. As you know, I love me some sci-fi/horror. Probably don’t even need to say this, but SPOILER ALERT. Fall TV Roundup, Part I- Horror [...]

On Screenwriting

9 Jul

I’ve read probably hundreds of scripts, for TV pilots & episodes, feature films, stage plays- you name it, I’ve read it. This is in thanks, in part, to my two internships at development houses, but I have also read many scripts on my own. Thanks to the internet I’ve downloaded copies of Christopher and Jonathan [...]

A Thrilling Grab Bag of Mixed Results- LOST Series Finale (Part 2)

4 Jun

It’s been nine days since LOST’s final curtain call, and yet the show still dominates my thoughts. Whether it’s obsessing over answers that will never come and plot holes that will never be filled, or trying to make sense of the finale, all I can seem to think about is LOST. Granted, I haven’t exactly [...]

A Thrilling Grab Bag of Mixed Results- LOST Series Finale (Part 1)

24 May

The Island is often described as its own character on LOST, and in my opinion, so too is Michael Giacchino’s score. There is simply no other score quite like it on television; it gives LOST the ultra-cinematic feel that sets it apart from nearly every other show. Without it, the series surely would have suffered, [...]

Preparing For the End- Tonight’s LOST Finale

23 May

In the above video, which I first saw on EW.com, the cat portraying Jack Shephard states: “I left my position as a prominent spinal surgeon to protect a light from a cloud. Seriously.” More than any other television show out there, LOST defies explanation. As I showed in my recap for “What They Died For,” [...]

ENDGAME- “What They Died For” Recap

19 May

During my sophomore year of college I rewatched the first and second seasons of LOST in preparation for the third season premiere. This is actually how Alison got into the show, but it was also a period where my friend and roommate Jordan would sit down and watch some episodes just so he could make [...]
