The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

Unlike the previous week's battles, these really are battles and not duets. Not that duets are bad, it just makes it really hard to choose one or see one of ...

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

Looking through preview of who will be performing tonight, I can't say I want half of them to go home. I'm hoping for a lot of saves, but if it ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

There's nothing better than great editing that shows contestants being pompous, only to end up eating those words later on. One team member starts out calling his team "survivors and ...

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 4 – Where Everybody Knows Your Name

I know, that was easy. So what. It’s Cheers! I do want to bust out some clips about Albania. Or about Kelly Kelly Kelly. Or about groin injuries. Or maybe just a good old fashioned Thanksgiving food fight. Anyway, apologies for being late. As I said in my other show column – life gets in the way. For me, it has often got in the way in the last couple of years. But that’s ok. You don’t want to shed a tear for your friendly [...]

Survivor 29: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 7 – The One That Happened Before Anything Good Can Happen

Sorry for the delay – life continues to get in the way of my punctuality when it comes to reality show blogging. I apologize yet again and continue to promise a much better effort/results in the weeks ahead. It’s been a long week, but finally, I can start talking about a really pretty useless Survivor episode before moving along to a much better Top Chef episode. But you care about Survivor. Here’s my blog…. Sun Tan Lady quit. She should never have been on this [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 6 – I’m A Meat Collector

More on that title in a bit, it really has nothing to do with what happened on this episode. I just snorted in laughter when I heard/thought I heard that line. You can tell it has been a subpar to mediocre season of Survivor when one of the best strategic moves of the season not only didn’t work, but resulted in the author of such a move getting voted out of the game. That is what happened here. Granted, it is not as if the [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 3 – Peanuts! Popcorn! Giant Baseballs In Soup!

Before we talk about the latest episode, the one that took place in The Ballpark That Must Not Be Names, one thing that I need to bring up first. I do this every once in a while in these pages because I feel the need to point out the obvious from time to time. The people on these shows are real people performing tasks in high-pressure situations while dealing with fatigue. They are greatly edited for full entertainment purposes. Bloggers like me get to be [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 2 – It’s Just Chicken!

One thing about Top Chef over the years – there has not been that many pure reality show villains. Sure, there have been some chefs who have pushed the envelope on villainy – but mostly it’s been a pretty tame show that way. We had Marcel, Stefan, Heather, just to name a few that have come across as chefs to root against. Most others have just been walking egos or annoying ticks that have been fun to root against. But in Boston…we have a budding [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 5 – Surround and Drown

For everyone who was intensely interested to see how the Rocker and Drew eliminations would alter the tribe dynamics going forward…well, too bad, so sad. We have new tribes. As with most tribal shakeups, the new tribes have some intriguing scenarios too. You can’t control the random nature of things. My favorite one was when All-Stars did a second tribal shakeup and the tribes stayed virtually the same – except Amber. Of course that led to the Rob-Lex feud – so it was totally worth [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 4 – Hubris Joins The Tribe

Forget the Rocker madness…this one rocked. I’m going to delay mentioning the name of the ousted Survivor so those on my Facebook feed don’t get spoiled until they click the link. So, what’s going on? The Royals are in the World Series. There’s an epidemic in Africa. Prince is hosting SNL. There’s a new version of “Twin Peaks” being made. There’s war in the Middle East and Russia is being a major concern. So, instead of being closer to the 2015 in “Back to The [...]

Top Chef: Boston – Ep 1 – Sudden Death Quickfire Is Now A Thing

Welcome back, Chef fans. I’m sorry I chose to pass on Top Chef: Duels. There are only just so many Top Chef shows that I can recap. It makes me hungry every time. I’m trying to stay somewhat in shape, Bravo. Stop tempting me with delicious treats! That’s one reason. Another is that I can only come up with so many jokes about kale. But here we are for another season. Food & Wine Magazine spread. Aspen. $125,000. And the title. Of Top Chef. Boom! [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 3 – Rocked Like A Hurricane

And the Great John Rocker Experiment comes to an end. Interestingly enough, the former ball player gets the boot at the exact same point in the game that former coach Jimmy Johnson got tossed. There were completely different reasons, of course, but I am sure celebrity played a fairly large and undercover end part in the Rocker elimination. Yes, Rocker had tons of baggage and his mouth got him in a lot of trouble in this episode. He also played a rather strange game of [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Blood vs. Water 2 – Ep 2 – The Terrible Lie

I am just happy I got to make a reference to a Nine Inch Nails’ song in the title. That mea culpa I made last week about Rocker? I’m taking it back. Next week seems to indicate that the old John Rocker is about to come out and play. This week we learned that he doesn’t really truly understand how to play Survivor – even if he is trying to play the game. And incredibly, despite his mistakes, he didn’t make the worst one. That [...]
