Yes, the episodes are basically feature-length, coming in at an hour-and-a-half apiece, but it’s still not enough! And don’t even get me started […]Read more "British “Series” vs. American “Seasons”"
Primetimely is a witty, insightful television blog written by my friend, Dan. Naturally, our blogs are best friends, even though my blog is not-so-secretly jealous of his blog’s name. However, it had to set its passive aggressive plans aside when Primetimely posted this crackerjack review of Aaron Sorkin’s new show, The Newsroom, coming to HBO […]Read more "Primetimely: “Newsroom” Preview Suggests Sorkin Masterpiece"
