Practically everyone takes steps forward today, and while some hearts get bruised in the process, pain in the name of progress at least speaks of growth. The show is still playing Answer Me with its lovelines, but I’ve reached the point where I’ve grown attached to their individual trajectories more than their coupled ones, so... More »

We’re finally at the point in the story where push comes to shove—either you remain exactly as you are and sit back as the new kid on the block takes your place, or you step up your game and stake your claim, be it as the marquee variety program, the top singer, or the best... More »

Today’s episode is all about lovelines, and goodness knows this is a drama that enjoys playing with all the different relationship configurations, but more than anything I feel like it’s really about friendships. Some are solidified, while others spring up seemingly unexpectedly, giving our characters a source of support from people they hadn’t necessarily expected... More »

On the one hand, every time we get another episode of The Producers that moves away from the hilarious mockumentary style that made me love it in the first place, it saddens me. On the other hand, the more it becomes a traditional rom-com, I do find myself getting wrapped up in the lovelines and... More »

The complicated love geometry starts taking shape with this episode, as feelings become more concrete… and directed at people who are missing all the cues. It’s basically a one-directional merry-go-round, where everyone’s looking at someone who’s looking at someone else, and it makes for some great romantic angst. But what’s more important at this stage... More »

The lovelines really get going today, but this show has them going in every direction—and curiously, the more it becomes uncertain which way they’re meant to go, the more I’m invested in all of them. Or maybe that’s not curious and we a little mystery is sometimes just what we want, rather than knowing from... More »

The Producers continues to be one giant meta joke on showbiz, with more cameos that can be counted and mile-a-minute jokes about everything from casting to executives to getting a show off the ground by pure dumb luck. The mockumentary framing device remains but is scaled back a bit (there’s been talk in the press... More »

Oh man, I love this show. The deadpan humor is so on the money, and it makes me appreciate this writer in a totally different way than I did during You From Another Star. It’s the complete opposite drama in every way—wry, cynical, so realistic it makes my insides cringe—but even though the embarrassment is... More »
