…stay tuned

the_69th_annual_primetime_emmy_awards_posterToday’s the day, TV fans. Tonight the Emmys will honor the best in television — a challenge as much as it is an honor with the sheer volume of incredible television today. Truly the variety and quality of television available today is almost overwhelming at times, so capturing that in a single night of honors is nothing short of impossible.

And it’s expanding still. It’s hard to believe it’s only been four years since Netflix made history, becoming the first streaming service to receive an Emmy nomination. Tonight they’re going toe-to-toe with HBO to dominate the 2017 Emmys. It’s an incredible feat, to say the least.  Read the rest of this entry

…battle on

This What to Watch Wednesday, many “Game of Thrones” fans out there find themselves staring down a (possibly) long road until the return of their beloved program for its final season. The show has yet to announce a return date, but most estimates put it around spring 2019. Read the rest of this entry

…make a racket

doctor_who_experience_28810552067329Happy Wimbledon Finals Weekend, tennis fans! And for the Whovians out there, happy weekend that we find out who the next Doctor is once the tennis is over!

For the non-Whovians, you’ve had more than 50 years to catch on, but I’ll catch you up. Much like James Bond, the Doctor has had many faces throughout the years, unlike James Bond, he actually changes faces within the plot of the show. (If you need more explanation than that, here’s our overview from the last changing of the Doctor.)

Sunday, the 13th Doctor will be announced (although it’s really the 15th if you’re a super nerd) following the men’s final at Wimbledon. You might say they’ll take it from tennis to the TARDIS (I can do this all day).

Until now, the role of the Doctor has maintained a streak of male actors (and they’ve done a fantastic job). But the buzz for a lady Doctor has only grown in the last few years and seeing as today was the women’s finals at Wimbledon, I thought I’d take a moment to explore the female frontrunners (even if the actual front runner of the moment is male…a girl can dream).

…Flip Ahead

The time we all knew was coming is here—the end of the network television season. Back in the dark ages, before streaming and Netflix original programing, that meant that couch potatoes were forced to watch reruns or (gasp) find something other than television to occupy their time.

Thankfully, the television season never ends, and this is also the time of year when networks announce what’s in the pipeline for the upcoming season. So you can spend this time planning out your fall television viewing schedule. Read the rest of this entry

…find something there

Once upon a What to Watch Wednesday, in an enchanted box lived a horrible, monstrous pilot. One day, villagers from far and wide sat down at their boxes to see their evening tales, and what they saw sent many of them running, never to return.

Yet a few stayed, not frightened, but intrigued by what might lie beyond that ghastly first meeting.
