I generally don't publish a whole lot of television news. Never, actually. It's a rat race to cover everything. So I tend to skip it all together. The company I work for doesn't believe food shows are worth covering in their news department. I, on the other hand, feel that someone needs to cover it and get the word out there.
Last winter Cooking Channel aired a special called How to Live to 100. It was a cooking show hosted by Detroit-born chef, ... Read More

FOX recently released a preview clip for the new season of the hit sci-fi series Fringe. Like a lot of you, I can't help but wonder what's really going on in this show. It's one of the more thought-provoking shows on television.
So where's Peter Bishop? It's hard to say. As you can expect, we're likely not going to see much of Peter, who is played by Joshua Jackson.
Speaking of Joshua Jackson, here's an interview IGN did with him ... Read More

Fringe's executive producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner recently talked about the aftermath following the incredible season three finale, "The Day We Died". I highly recommend watching this clip. It's got me all the more excited for season four!

After season three's shocking conclusion, everyone's curious what's going to happen in season four from Fringe. While information is obviously quite limited, I do know that Joshua Jackson will be back to play Peter Bishop. What Peter does and where he is still not known. The writers took quite an unusual step in the way the season ended and made Peter vanish from existence, making his character's role a little unsure.
As for the room inside the Statue of Liberty, ... Read More

It isn't often that I blog about something that only affects myself and a small region, but I felt it's worth noting considering the demand for new HD channels. Cable companies are often asked to add HD channels but with bandwidth at a premium, it's often a difficult thing to do well.

My local Charter branch added a bunch of new HD channels after upgrading the network to Switched-Digital-Video (SDV), which will help in the ... Read More

Sci-Fi Channel has announced that they will be cancelling the hit series Stargate Atlantis at the end of the fifth season. It's one example of how a show's budget has just gotten too out of control. Factor in the production costs (Canada is no longer a cheap place to film these days), actor salaries, etc and it's just too much.
But there is some good news from all of this. There will be a two-hour movie to follow the conclusion ... Read More
