But he actually takes backseat to a major storyline about Pierce. Pop Culture COMMUNITY references in this episode: Rebop (an 80′s show), Kunta Kinte (from Roots), Firefly (a canceled Joss […]

This rad (can I type rad? I totally can!) map of the United States has a TV show that represents each of the 50 states. Yup, even Alaska and Hawaii are represented.

Alison Elliott, Mira Sorvino, Carla Gugino and Rya Kihlstedt

In 1995 I made a decision to forgo a night of watching whatever was on “normal” TV, and instead found myself deliriously delighted with a period piece I found on PBS (not a station anyone I knew was watching – aside from my Granny). Always a fan of fashion, British accents, and people who were […]

When most TV shows are on hiatus, it gives us time to look back at our old favorites (hey – I’ve been watching Samantha Who? on DVD, myself!). Nathan Fillion tweeted a link to a Firefly fan-made video of bloopers, saying “This reminds me of good times. Enjoy.” I like the idea that he watched […]
