The Supersizers: Regency
The Supersizers: RegencyIt is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man in possession of historical foodstuffs must be in want of someone willing to eat wine-soaked rarebit at 10pm. That means another Supersizers, because nothing looks as good for sore eyes as two Brits trussed up in chokingly-hot layers and poking at various potted meats, am I right?…
AV Club Roundup, and Axe Cop
AV Club Roundup, and Axe CopSo, I’ve been writing some things for AV Club, and it’s roundup time! The theatre-nerd part of me loved It’s the Hard Knock Life, which was a great no-frills documentary about a choreographer determined to recreate the iconic musical number, the set designer who wants to put the smallest one in a drawer, and a group of girls who are that stage-kid mixture of 8 and 48, including the one who promises that if acting doesn’t work out, she’ll always have academics.…

As it turns out, there was a way, since the hotel didn’t carry the necessary channel, which meant my plans of a sublime B-movie were dashed.…
The Fosters
The FostersDespite still bearing an endless grudge against ABCFamily for their cancellation of The Middleman, and being forever wary of some of their core programming (The Secret Life of the American Teenager is a fever dream from which we’ll never wake!), I was intrigued when the network announced The Fosters for its summer lineup; the drama would focus on a two-mom multicultural family including biological, adopted, and foster children.…
