Imagine my surprise at seeing the face of Lucy from Degrassi: TNG in my Firefox window! She’s contributed an article to a Canadian publication, a memoir about her parents, grandparents, struggling with poverty, finding common ground, joining Degrassi, and what she’s up to now. It’s a really nice read, no longer than some of the… Read More Lucy Speaks!
Boy I don’t have to tell you long-time followers that’s it’s been a while, huh? It’s so weird to think back to when the last post went up, how different the world was then. Girl Meets World got renewed for a third season, and then canceled. Degrassi got canceled and then picked up by Netflix.… Read More I’m not dead!
The plot: Nicole de Boer plays Liz, a single mother who’s a real estate agent who’s SO dedicated to her job and so good at it that she’s managed to sell several homes in December. Apparently it’s unusual to sell a home to closer it gets to Christmas, but Liz can handle it! After successfully… Read More Movie Review: Christmas Town
I get curious about where some of you readers come from sometimes, so I was looking through the “link referrals” thing, which tells me where some of you came from. And wow! Buzzfeed! I feel so famous for no good reason. Check it out, they used one of my screenshots for this quiz. They actually… Read More Well hello, people of the internet!
Yes, hello, it’s been a while! I’m working on getting back on-track here. I apologize for the long absence. Anyway, I had the idea to add yet another show feature to this blog. This one will be focusing on shows that got cancelled really quickly. Now, frankly, I hate when they cancel shows that have… Read More The Axe: Work It, 101- “Pilot”; Jan 3, 2012
Title too long for header! 817, “We’re Going to Disney World!” (Feb 20, 1996), and 818, “Disney World War II” (Feb 27, 1996). A billion years ago I was going to do a Disney Week because we’d reached the BMW Disney episode, then… blah. I decided to try to revive this goal because I’m going… Read More Roseanne: 817 and 818 – Disney Episodes
Well, despite the caliber of celebrities this season being… not great, the episode itself was pretty good. Lots of 7s and 8s in the scores, despite it being week 1. Kim, the Real Housewife, was undoubtedly the worst performer of the night. She basically just stood there as her partner kind of danced around her… Read More DWTS; s.21, week 1 – Gary Busey Surprisingly Decent
Yeah, yeah, I know. I actually have the most recent Boy Meets World review all typed up, but my computer crashed, taking the Photoshop document with all the screenshots with it. That sort of sucked out my motivation to do more for the time being. Anyway I thought it’d be fun/silly this season of Dancing… Read More Dancing With the Stars: Pre-Season 21 Predictions
Geez, I’ve spent literally hours today trying to pick out a blog theme that doesn’t suck. I just want one where the categories and archive are easily visible, one that doesn’t post the ENTIRETY of every blog entry right on the front page, one that has an “older posts” thing instead of endless scrolling (even… Read More The search for a not-horrible theme
Aw man the imdb credits say August Maturo is “credits only” in this episode. Please let that be true. I just don’t understand how there are people who AREN’T annoyed by his character. I know he’s young, and little kids aren’t the best actors, except for all the ones that actually were like Elijah Wood… Read More GMW: 112, “Girl Meets the Forgotten”; Oct 10, 2014
We have a special treat today! This episode is on the season 1 DVD set, for no apparent reason (actually I think it’s because this episode is about hair and personal image, just like a season 1 episode), so the screencaps for this episode should be less awful than normal! Eric is talking in his… Read More BMW: 402, “Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow”; Sept 27, 1996
If that wasn’t totally obvious, the actual episode title is “Girl Meets World: of Terror.” Yes, with the colon. This episode it sounds like is supposed to have three segments focusing on one character each, and one of those is Auggie. We’ve established that I hate that kid so please forgive me if his segment… Read More Girl Meets World… OF TERROR, 111; Oct 2, 2014
When we last left our heroes, Eric and Cory were going on a two-month long cross-country roadtrip. I forgot to bring this up in the last review, but that’s a heck of a lot of driving for one person to do. It takes about a week to get from one coast to the other, and… Read More BMW: 401, “You Can Go Home Again”; September 20, 1996
Man I really gotta catch up on all these shows. Girl Meets World season 2 is already airing (actually it looks like it’s half-over already?? the season one finale was like 3 months ago, though) and apparently “laying on the feels”, and Degrassi AND Glee are both ended. (Okay, Degrassi got picked up by Netflix… Read More GMW: 110, “Girl Meets Crazy Hat”; Sept 26, 2014
Well I come back after a really long hiatus to bring you… the season finale! When we last left Boy Meets World, Cory stalked Topanga in Disney World, and they got back together after learning about a lonely dolphin. So now it’s the end of the school year. Eric’s cleaning out his locker, when Turner… Read More BMW: 322 – Brother Brother; May 17, 1996
(Note: I originally started writing this a few days after the episode originally aired, but the video player I was using kept crashing, and I just gave up for that day. And didn’t feel like going back to reviewing for a really long time after that.) I have a feeling this episode is going to… Read More GMW: 109, “Girl Meets 1961”; September 19, 2014
Apparently I never actually posted this! Remember when I said there was going to be a Disney Week? Ha. I wrote this 7 months ago, wow. Now, I explained in the BMW Disney episode about how Disney basically forced all of ABC’s shows to visit Disney World, after Disney bought ABC, specifically to advertise for… Read More Step By Step: 522 and 523, “We’re Going to Disney World, parts 1 and 2”; May 3 and May 10, 1996
Hey, it’s been a while! Sorry about that! I just got fed-up with the episode of Girl Meets World I was reviewing crashing over and over again, and then, well… Anyhow, here’s a brand-new old show! You know the classic John Hughes film starring a young Matthew Broderick, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”? Probably you know… Read More Ferris Bueller: 101, “Pilot”; August 23, 1990
“Girl Meets Smackle” sounds like either a codename for a cereal commercial or a video of an adult, explicit nature. This episode’s history unit is on Ancient Greece. Probably would’ve made sense for the Sword of Damocles lesson to be during this unit but oh well. Cory has a box, and asks who wants it.… Read More Girl Meets World: 108, “Girl Meets Smackle”; September 12, 2014
Well at least THIS episode title actually makes sense. Farkle wants to be the model for art class. Fortunately he’s wearing a 1920s-style swimsuit under that robe. Riley wants to draw Lucas. Riley has drawn bowls of fruit where all the fruit has Lucas’s face on it. Also the art class is being held in… Read More GMW: 107, “Girl Meets Maya’s Mother”; August 15, 2014
