Netflix Pix – June 2015

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

June, you are fleeting away quicker than anyone would prefer. I mean, come on now. It’s already Fourth Of July week! But worry not, friends. Because this blog is not officially canceled yet, and I still have five picks that you might want to consider when you browse Netflix’s instant streaming library. Yes, I know we’re right in under the gun for yet another month, but just think: We have one of the strongest lineups we’ve had in the history of this blog! (I say that a lot, don’t I?). ... read more

Look At That: The Emmys Happened

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Because this is what happens when you move the show from a Sunday to a Monday: We can't get to it until Friday. So, yes. I'm fully aware that nobody reads this thing anyway. But commenting on something that happened four days ago? That's taking our version of pathetic to a new level. I mean, what is this? 2003? Yet I just can't help myself from adhering to tradition. And because we have yet to miss a year in our Emmy recap series, behold the fourth go-around, even if we are nearly a ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 11, 12 and 13, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

And so it goes. After 13 episodes and one as-long-as-a-movie season finale, we find ourselves at the end of the second run of "Orange Is The New Black." With consistency in mind, I'm going to stick to episodes 11, 12 and 13 for this post, again reiterating the possibility that maybe sometime next week, we'll go all macro on this second season (stress the "reiterating the possibility" part). For now, though, let's dive into how the whole thing wrapped up with the following five things to think ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 9 and 10, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

This will be the second-to-last "Orange Is The New Black" Five Things post (I know: Have mercy). Because the season runs an odd number of episodes, we'll likely finish it up next week by going through episodes 11, 12 and 13. Then, depending on how life feels, we may come back for another installment of "And now it's time to talk about ...". But no promises (trust me: I am fully aware that half of the four of you still reading have already finished the season by now while the other half has simply ... read more

And the nominees are … (Part 3)

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

OK. Two things: 1. Last year was a watershed moment for the Internet television medium, which was why we opted to ooze and gush over the mere fact that "House Of Cards" received a bevy of Emmy nominations. It opened the doors wide open for what happened this year (way more on that below), and it was a moment that forced us to opt against the usual Emmy format, if only for a year. And 2. Yes, I completely understand that the Emmy nominees were revealed six days ago. But this post is not ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 7 and 8, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

It was a banner week for "Orange Is The New Black," the series earning a bevy or barrage or a barrevy of Emmy nominations yesterday for their season one work. And gosh-darn-it, if Crazy Eyes doesn't end up walking away with a trophy of her own that night, I might ... I might ... well, I might do absolutely nothing about it (I mean, really: What on earth could I do, anyway?). But it would be disappointing, nonetheless. Obviously. Anyway, behold five things about episodes seven and eight when ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 5 and 6, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

First thing's first: A new Netflix Pix will hit the World Wide Internet next week. For now, though (and because we already missed a week of this), we are going to continue forward with our "Orange Is The New Black" series a day before Friday. Why is that? Because who wants to read about the prison system when we are supposed to be out there celebrating freedom, gosh-darn-it! FREEEEEDOMMM! Yeah, anyway. Behold five things about episodes five and six of this latest "Orange Is The New Black" ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 3 and 4, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

... And we're back. After a quick break last week, it's time to return to the lovely ladies at the state of New York's busiest women's prison. It was a steady climb toward greatness after the disappointment episode one provided and the improvement between the first two episodes was both real and abundant. That trend continues with installments three and four. So, enough of me gabbering. Let's go. Naturally, spoilers abound: 1. The further I get into this series, the more I realize how much ... read more

Five Things About ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Episodes 1 and 2, Season 2

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

All right. So, here's the plan. One week ago today, the second season of "Orange Is The New Black" was released all at once. As we know by now, that's how Netflix rolls. Some of you (assuming anybody actually reads this thing, which is highly, highly unlikely) might have already stormed your way through the entire season. Others might be about half done. Then, of course, there could be those who simply haven't even had the chance to sit down and reacquaint themselves with the series at all. I ... read more

Netflix Pix – June 2014

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

June, oh June. You are hot. You are sweaty. And you are filled with music. No, but really. To the two-and-a-half of you who might still be reading, it's imperative to note why there seems to be an extended absence from this blog (as well as a slip-up on our annual upfronts coverage - sad face!). Well, that would be because of this: www.frederickplaylist.com The fine folks here at the Frederick News-Post have asked me to start up a new website dedicated solely to Frederick music. Thus, Frederick ... read more
