Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

Random Info: Friday Night Lights

If this show was not the most amazing thing ever, I would be kind of ashamed for anyone to be inside my head and know the full extent of the anxiety I have been suffering for weeks as rumors of cancellation swirl over FNL. A bit of relief came to me today. NBC is trying to figure out a way to continue the show by basically farming it out: a new episodes would air on NBC and then at various other times during the week that same episode would air on another (most likely cable) network, thereby reaching a wider audience and lowering the cost of the show to NBC. More chances to watch: good. More people watching: really good. After loosing Veronica Mars I do not think I can take the disappointment of loosing Friday Night Lights, so this news lightens my burden just a bit. But we cannot give up until something is finalized, so keep watching, signing petitions, and mailing tiny plastic footballs to the NBC executives.

Whoa...for a second I thought your I'm Watching Tonight section said: Smallville and I was about to verbally abuse you. But then I recollected myself and realized it was only Supernatural. sigh of relief.

Verbally abuse nothing, if it said what you thought it said you would get to kill me. The hated show of evilness is not even on tonight, they are showing 2 eps of Supernatural. And there is no "only" about it.

I loved your impromptu voice-mail, and I wish I was as productive with my smoke breaks. So soon I will get to see your face! It will be like Christmas in March (that phrasing just doesn't have the punch of "Christmas in July," sad)!
