Summer Shows

Here’s a rundown of some of the shows I’ll be covering this summer:

  • Devious Maids
  • True Blood
  • Witches of East End
  • Orange is the New Black
  • And maybe Hemlock Grove (if I’m in the mood)

I’m also open to suggestions if anyone has a really, really good one.

Whatever’s on TV Recap : American Idol, Top 11 Perform Again

Who performed the best?

Here we go again “American Idol” fans; a new week, a new set of songs. This week the top 11 perform to living legend Elton John, who has a distinctive flavor that usually only he can produce. I’m worried the the contestants might not be able to even come close to matching that, or worse yet, choose to sing “Circle of Life.” Don’t get me wrong, I love “The Lion King,” but even I would have to admit that if anyone even attempted it, it would go beyond the dreaded Karaoke label. So how did everyone do? Read on to find out.

Whatever’s On TV Recap: Dancing with the Stars, Week 1


Welcome to the Ballroom folks for the first recap and review of the season. By the looks of the premiere, we are in for a bumpy ride. You know, there have been a lot of complaints that this season was light on bankable stars, and at first I was a little inclined to agree. Did the premiere change my mind? Read on to find out.

Review: Fred: The Movie

Article first published as Movie Review: Fred: The Movie on Blogcritics.

“My time is now!” – Fred Figglehorn

No quote was ever more truer than this one. After making millions of people laugh out loud (or cringe from the high pitched voice), internet sensation Fred has made it to the small screen in his first ever Nicklelodeon movie.

Fred Figglehorn (Lucas Cruikshank) is a typical 15-year-old with an incredibly high pitched voice and a set of similar shirts in his drawer. He likes to sing and dance, which Fred feels are his top talents. Fred is also incredibly obsessed with fellow classmate and next door neighbor Judy (Pixie Lot), whom he follows ever day after school and (falsely) is his girlfriend. Standing in his way is another neighbor, Kevin (Jake Weary), who undermines Fred’s confidence at every turn.

One day in music class Fred sees Kevin and Judy singing a duet of “Love will Keep Us Together,” and firmly believes that Judy was upset at Kevin’s horrible performance. In order to save her, Fred decides to march over to her house and invite her over to sing with him, that way she can harmonize with a talented partner. After a confrontation with Kevin, Fred finally makes it to Judy’s, only to find out that she has moved, setting him off on a cross city journey to rescue her.

One has to hand it to Cruikshank. In the world of youtube, where anyone can be a “star,” he managed to create a truly unique character. Aging Fred from six to 15 is a bit jarring at first, but Cruikshank manages to keep all his quirks in tact: the screaming, the inflated sense of ego, as well as the crippling anxiety. We truly believe Cruikshank is Fred, and for that matter Derf (an alter ego of sorts), and forget that he is an actor playing a role.
