I’m so far out of the loop when it comes to film of late, as I’ve seen none of (or very little of) the nominees for the Golden Globes this year, so this is an opportunity for me to look very, very dumb. But why not?
This is also a reminder that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association really has no time for television and gets most of the TV categories out of the way first like a child chokes down its vegetables at dinner. Also, my picks are what I think will win, as opposed to what I think should win (such as the ridiculousness of no nominations for The Americans, which is the best show on TV in my humble opinion).

So, here comes the triumphant return.
Let me try that again… here comes *a* return of some dork who loves TV.
Site’s been dormant for two and a half years or so, but we’re gonna try to get back into it because why the hell not?
For anyone who still stumbles upon this, things might look a little different as we get moving, but we’ll figure it out as we go. Posts will probably be a little shorter, and they might not be limited to just TV, as I could feel like musing on music, movies, sports, or anything that pop culture has to offer.
Bear with me, and we’ll see how long this lasts this time.
