It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a TV Times Three Roundup – time to check in on what we’ve been talking about!

Episode 35 – We tackled the highs and lows of the 2008-09 TV season.  We were actually able to remember a lot about this past TV season. But, first we chatted about a few news items including briefly mentioning the rash of celebrity deaths recently, the TVaholic’s birthday, Flashpoint returning, JoAnna Garcia joining Gossip Girl for a few episodes, which reminded Amrie of another piece of news, Noah Wyle cast in a new TNT show, Jeri Ryan joining the cast of Leverage and the TVaholic visiting the set, which included some Gina Bellman news, Showtime canceling Brotherhood and a little Law & Order: SVU news. After covering our news and topics, we talked a bit about Primeval, The Closer, Better Off Ted, So You Think You Can Dance, Burn Notice, and Virtuality. (more…)

I haven’t posted about the podcast in a few weeks, so I wanted to get the links for the past three episodes into a post for y’all!

Episode 032 – We programmed our perfect week of TV.  That’s 22 hours to fill with any TV show, past or present. We started with a four-hour block on Sundays and moved through the rest of the week with a three-hour block for each night. Even after thinking about it for a week, we all still heard one of the others mention a show we’d forgotten to include.  Before we dove into the topic, we briefly mentioned some recent TV related news about The Beast, Burn Notice, and Royal Pains.  After covering our perfect primetimes, we covered Primeval, Greek, So You Think You Can Dance, Burn Notice season three premiere, Royal Pains series premiere, tosh.0 series premiere, The Listnener series premiere, and Conan’s first week taking over The Tonight Show.

Episode 033 - We decied to talk about our favorite imported series from around “the places”!  So, we did a little thinking, or a lot in Rae’s case, about what foreign TV shows we have watched and enjoyed. We didn’t limit ourselves to just British shows either, as some Australian and Canadian TV shows figured into our lists.  But, first we batted around the idea of why we don’t see many hit shows from other countries play here in the United States and why we tend to see remakes of these shows.  After covering our double dose of topics, we talked a bit about Pushing Daisies, Greek, The Closer, Weeds, So You Think You Can Dance, and Burn Notice.  I also talk about Huggabunch at length!

Episode 034 - Just went live this morning!  Ever wondered how we got into TV blogging? We decided to answer it on the podcast and we each briefly talked about how we got into TV blogging. Well, briefly may be understating it, but what else is new?  But, first we chatted about a few news items about T.R. Knight, Katherine Heigl, Brian Austin Green, and the swapping of The Wretched Beast and Gossip Girl on The CW Mondays this fall.  After covering our news and the topic, we talked a bit about Pushing Daisies, Primeval, Greek, The Closer, So You Think You Can Dance, Burn Notice, and Royal Pains.  Lastly, we talks briefly (there it is again) about some upcoming shows like ABC Family’s Make It or Break It and 10 Things I Hate About You and the ABC miniseries Impact.  And I sing.  A lot.

tvx3_logo_300x300It’s been a few weeks since I posted the Podcast – hope you’re still enjoying it!! This week, we talked about the topic sent in by listener Vanessa on March 24th, 2009. She wrote in to say:

I’ve loved the podcast since it began and thought it was time to toss in an idea for a show topic. It seems that my love of TV has started to diminish my enjoyment of some procedurals lately. I am already familiar with so many people that have been guest stars on procedurals, that I often am able to solve the “who dunit?” just by who is cast. Take for example last week’s Castle (spoiler alert if you haven’t seen it!). Sarah Drew of Everwood fame was a guest star. As soon as she was questioned, I knew she played a role in the crime. Why else would she have accepted the role if it wasn’t major to the story? Have you found this a problem for any of you as well? This turned into a long rambling question, but maybe you will find interest in it. Love the show!

So, we gave our thoughts on guest stars that guest star on lots of shows, thus ruining any suspense as to who the killer might be on a procedural. This also turned into talking a bit about knowing too much outside information about a show.

But, first we chatted about some recent TV related news about American Idol winner Chris Allen, Monk and Psych premiere dates, Big Brother premiere date, recasting on some fall pilots, and Better Off Ted returning for summer.

Then, we did a brief primetime wrap-up, where we talked about the Primeval, Greek, Mental series premiere, My Boys season three finale, and So You Think You Can Dance.

Lastly, we gave a few recommendations for some upcoming summer shows. Find out are thoughts on the season three premiere of Burn Notice and the series premieres of HawthoRNe, Nurse Jackie, and Royal Pains.

Speaking of accents… Thanks to Chris Vaughn that’s what we’re doing! We talk about some of the shows right now that have characters played by people who aren’t from the United States and have to disguise their accents as a result. Should more of them be permitted to use their natural accents? Why aren’t they? We’ve got some ideas and I rate who I think covers his/her accent best and who doesn’t.

We also pick out TV news from the past week that we think deserves highlighting and then get into our usual primetime discussion. This time we cover recent episodes of The Amazing Race, Greek, How I Met Your Mother, Fringe, Lost, Scrubs, and Grey’s Anatomy.

And when it’s all over, stick around for the outtakes. We got a little silly this time around and couldn’t pick just one to share.

Next time we’ll be previewing your summer viewing options. If you’ve got thoughts on past episodes, this episode, or have a topic suggestion for us, use the SnapVine widget in the right column of the main site, leave a comment below, email us, or connect via Twitter.

tvx3_logo_300x300This week, the TV triumvirate was back together again. We talked about what seems to be a lack of good ethnic shows on TV recently. Listener Brian Hunt wondered why there seemed to be more African American sitcoms during the ’70s into the early ’90s, like The Cosby Show and Good Times. He posited that “racism was still very prevalent” back then, but now “America is much more excepting” and wanted to know why there is “such a lack of good ethnic TV shows” nowadays?

We started things off with a few news items about The Celebrity Apprentice, Disney/ABC joining Hulu, Roommates, Harper’s Island, Southland, and Chuck. Then we moved on to the topic, which included talking about shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, A Different World, Everybody Hates Chris and many others, along with the ones mentioned above.

Lastly, we moved on to our primetime wrap-up, where we talked about The Amazing Race, Chuck, Fringe, Lost, and Dollhouse. Next time we will be discussing actors, like Hugh Laurie (House), playing roles where they don’t use their natural accent. So, if you’ve got thoughts on past episodes, this episode, or have a topic suggestion for us, use the SnapVine widget in the right column, leave a comment below, email us, or connect via Twitter.

This week, Rae was off camping, so we had on a guest host to talk about the week in TV. Myles McNutt from Cultural Learnings and the new McNuttCast joined us for what turned out to be a rather lengthy, but really fun, discussion.

We started things off with some news about Kings, The Tudors, Army Wives, Project Runway, the SAG negotiations, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Then we moved on to the topic of TV shows in decline and whether they actually are or we just think they are. Shows discussed included Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, and Heroes.

After talking show declines, we moved on to our primetime wrap-up, where we talked about Chuck, Greek, Fringe, My Boys, The Office, Parks & Recreation, and 30 Rock.

Next time all three of us (Jason, Rae, and I) will be back together again and we’d like to hear from you. So, if you’ve got thoughts on past episodes, this episode, or have a topic suggestion for us, use the SnapVine widget in the right column, leave a comment below, email us, or connect via Twitter.
