    Howzit San Diego Comic-Con!

      I’m in San Diego! For the first time! And for the first time, I’m going to Comic-Con, along with about 100 000 other fans, authors, actors, publicists, Wonder-Woman-lookalikes, and fellow journalists. I’ve been told to expect a whole lot of wonderful madness, crazy costumes, and long lines that test patience levels far beyond the usual film-festival fare. While at Comic-Con I’m looking forward to finding out first-hand what’s coming in the next season of The Walking Dead. After visiting the set in Georgia last year, I, like so many others, am eagerly waiting for the next episodes of the hit show. At this year’s Comic-Con, there’ll be a Walking…

      You know your day is going to be good when it involves meeting Dr McDreamy. Only mine started out with me not knowing this little nugget of information, when I headed out to the Discovery Upfront at the Jazz Centre at the Lincoln Centre on Thursday.

It’s usually a big affair, with singing and dancing (last year Rosie put on a cabaret act) and big names (hello, Oprah). This year may not have been as spectacular, but the programming still looks strong, with a number of new shows…

    On Set of The Walking Dead

    Even before I’d stepped on set of The Walking Dead, I felt like I was in a horror movie just waiting to happen. The small town where the show is being filmed, Peachtree City in Georgia, with its walk-paths in the woods and houses right on the lake, eerily feels as if  someone is just waiting to jump out of the bushes. It didn’t help that there were early Halloween decorations all over the place already either. The Walking Dead, back for a second season, moves the action from the city of Atlanta to the countryside, at a spot called Hershel’s Farm. Hershel Greene and his daughter Maggie (who will…

    The 63rd Emmy Awards…aka The One Where FNL Gets Some Love

      It was a night featuring a made-for-TV-with-TV stars a capella group called “The Emmytones” and an apparent white-flag moment from Charlie Not-Winning-So-Much Sheen. There were few surprises – except where Friday Night Light Fans are concerned – with Modern Family, Mad Men and Kate Winslet winning the awards we knew they would win (yes. Kate, we see don’t believe you didn’t believe it). In case you missed the intro, in which the President of Television remarks: “But Jane, they hardly let you sing on Glee,” here you go: And here are the winners: — Outstanding Drama Series: Mad Men — Outstanding Comedy Series: Modern Family — Actress, Drama Series: Julianna…
