Leftridge: TV Time: Because One Walking Dead Just Wasn’t Enough

What do you do when you have the most popular show on television but the demand is greater than your feasible output? Well, if you’re AMC, you spin off your enormously successful zombie show into another zombie show set at … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Orange is the New Black is Back for Season Three

I’ve got a thing for prison, I guess… Maybe it stems from my white-trash roots, long-nurtured by a stream of Canadian Mist whiskey and viewed through the lens of a Section 8 apartment’s dirty, cracked window. A good portion of … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Catching Up With Wayward Pines

Wayward Pines is like Twin Peaks, except modern and for Fox. It also has nothing to do with David Lynch, the person responsible for making Twin Peaks great. Instead, it’s from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan, which is, at … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: The Best Worst Spin Offs

Better Call Saul premieres Sunday night (and Monday night, kinda), and like everyone else who knows what’s good, my bowels are quaking in nervous, anticipatory terror. The anticipation is one of both dread and glee; riding the coat tails of … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: So Many Shows, So Little Time

There’s a period of time—we’re coming out of it right now, actually—where all of the shows have gone into a merciful Christmas slumber. They’re not done for the season, but they’re also not willing to lose viewership to Frosty’s Still … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: The Strain is the Worst Thing I’ve Ever Seen

If you were considering watching FX’s new original series The Strain, I’ve got some advice: DROP WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING AND DON’T WATCH IT, EVER. It’s just… terrible. See, I had reasonably high hopes, I guess. FX has a pretty good … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time; Channeling Fargo

A month or so ago, my wife made a startling revelation: she’d never seen the darkly comedic, melodically disturbing 1996 masterpiece Fargo… After consulting a divorce attorney—who hung up on me after explaining that this was “a grotesquely ridiculous reason … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Just in Time for Easter, ABC Premieres Resurrection

Upon first hearing about ABC’s new sci-fi drama Resurrection, my first thought was, “oh. OK. So… Walking Dead, but without the hilariously graphic violence due to network television limitations.” Then, I read a very brief synopsis—“dead people come back to … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: The Americans Returns Next Week, Will Probably be Good

If you haven’t watched the first season of FX’s The Americans, there’s still some time to check it out before Wednesday night’s premier. It’s not on Netflix, though, so you’ll have to find it on whatever virus-riddled Slovakian website you … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: American Horror Story: Coven Premiers Tonight

In the hierarchy of Things That Are Supposed to be Scary but Aren’t, witches are at the top of my list. For every Blair Witch (who was only scary because she went unseen and could have been just about anything) … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Orange is the New Black

The world moves too fast, anymore. At least that’s what I tell myself in order to feel better about being behind on things. The truth is, it’s probably something that just naturally happens as you get older. Your finger slips … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: “The Bridge,” Because Who DOESN’T Like Mexican/American Crime Dramas?

FX’s original programming is to the point where I’m fairly certain they could air a promo with nothing but a black screen and the words “TV SHOW COMING SOON”, and I’d be hooked. And to be quite honest, this doesn’t … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Arrested Development Returns, Monopolizes 3-Day-Weekend’s Plans

Seven years ago, I was delivering pizzas in the evening, driving a forklift after midnight, and spending my days sending emails to my editors at The Pitch Weekly politely inquiring about the status of my most recent check. (They weren’t … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: The Office Says Goodbye

It’s too easy to write a eulogy about a program’s death. In this age of a million online critics and critiques and retrospectives and look-backs, I’d almost guarantee the following lede (or a variation thereof) will be posted and printed … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: Is Hannibal Doing Anything for Anybody?

Are you all watching NBC’s Hannibal? I’m not. Well, I suppose I am—technically—but only in arrears thorough Time Warner’s “On Demand!” and only at the continual insistence of someone from Facebook. (You know—the person who loves and trumpets something loudly, … Continue reading

Leftidge: TV Time: House of Cards, a Busy Show About Morning BBQ, Politics

Are you watching House of Cards on Netflix? Because I’m not. Well, not ACTIVELY, I suppose. See, I watched the first two episodes, and for some reason—I’m just not FEELING it, and I’m not entirely sure why. The acting is … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time — Even Though Spies Are Stupid, I’ll Probably Watch The Americans

I just don’t like spies. I don’t mean I dislike them as one might dislike an opossum, as in, “Jesus, honey—those spies got into the trashcans again last night and shit all over the sidewalk. We need to set some … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: 30 for 30, Whenever You Want

Netflix Instant is a pretty awesome thing. Probably just as equally as awesome is ESPN’s acclaimed documentary series, 30 for 30. Combine the two, and you’ve got an excellent way to kill time (supposing you’ve got any time to kill). … Continue reading

Leftridge: TV Time: American Horror Story is Back, Totally Different Show

Confession time: I like scary stuff. Now this may not be as groundbreaking an admission as, oh, say, admitting that you are erotically transfixed by kangaroos, or that you are secretly the patriarch of two families who know nothing of … Continue reading

Leftridge: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia…Still

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s 8th season premiers this Thursday on FX, and frankly, I’m just not so sure how I feel about that fact. You see, this once grand television show—much like anything that moves beyond a 5th or … Continue reading
