One of the best things about television is the variety of content and subject matter that is available for consumption. It is so wide-reaching, there are so many channels, genres and series to choose from that pretty much anyone can find something they enjoy. Add to that options like Netflix and Hulu to get caught up on shows you may have missed or as an introduction to new series and there is no end to the possibilities for viewing enjoyment. As it turns out, television in 2012 is so varied that there was little to no agreement on any of our writers’ favorites.Read More 2012, 30 Rock, ABC, AMC, Amy Poehler, ATX Television Festival, ATX TV Fest, bbc, Benedict Cumberbatch, Best of 2012, Best of Television 2012, Best Web Series, Breaking Bad, Brian Rudloff, Bryan Cranston, Casino, Cat Edison, Catfish: The TV Series, comedy, Danai Gurira, Daniel Johnson, Drama, Eric Ambler, featured, Felicia Day, Fox, FX, Game of Thrones, Ginnifer Goodwin, Hardocore Pawn, HBO, hulu, it's always sunny in philadelphia, Jack Huston, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Espenson, John Hamm, Kelly Macdonald, Kristal Bailey, Leslie Knope, Liz Meriwether, Lyndsey Miller, mark wahlberg, Martin Scorsese, Michael Shannon, Michonne, mindy kaling, Monica Potter, NBC, Netflix, New Girl, Nicholas DeLorenzo, Once Upon a Time, Parenthood, Parks & Rec, Parks & Recreation, parks and rec, parks and recreation, Pawn Stars, Peter Krause, Reality TV, Rob Reiner, Sarah Katz, Screen Invasion, Sherlock, Stephen Graham, Steve Buscemi, television, The Guild, The League, The Untouchables, The Walking Dead, Tina Fey, TruTV, TV, web series
The Screen Invasion Team watches a lot of television. (Something you may have guessed from the many, many recaps posted daily.) As we watched our Fall TV faves, we noticed a trend: namely, female characters who are kicking ass and taking names (literally, in some cases). Ladies so successfully dominating their respective TV-universes that nothing keeps them down for long. And we wanted to do a little something to show these kick-ass TV chicks the R-E-S-P-E-C-T that is so rightly theirs.Read More 30 Rock, ABC, adventure time, Alicia Florrick, AMC, American Broadcasting Companies Inc., Anna Torv, Archie Panjabi, Arya Stark, Astrid Farnsworth, Autumn Reeser, Bebe Wood, Brienne of Tarth, Camille De Pazzis, Carnival Film & Television Limited, Cartoon Network, CBS, Character, Christine Baranski, Christine Kendal, Colleen Donaghy, Cortez, daenerys targaryen, Daisy Betts, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, Debbie Gallagher, Diane Lockhart, Dichen Lachman, Dowager Countess, Downton Abbey, Elaine Stritch, Elena Gilbert, Ellen Barkin, Emilia Clarke, Emma Kenney, Emma Swan, emmy rossum, Erika Christensen, Evil Queen, Fairy Tale Land, Fall, Fall TV, featured, Fiona Gallagher, Fox, Fringe, Game of Thrones, Gene Page, Georgia King, Ginnifer Goodwin, Glenn Rhee, Goldie, Gwendoline Christie, HBO, Henry, Hynden Walch, Isobel Crawley, James Marsden, Jane, Jared Gilmore, Jasika Nicole, Jennifer Morrison, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jessica Camacho, Jessy Schram, Julia Braverman-Graham, Julianna Margulies, Kalinda Sharma, Kick-Ass Chick, Kristina Braverman, Kylie Sinclair, Lady Mary, Lady Rainicorn, Lady Sybil, Lana Parrilla, Last Resort, Lauren Cohan, LAuren Graham, Lieutenant Grace Shepard, liz lemon, Maggie Greene, Maggie Smith, maisie williams, marceline, Meghan Ory, Michelle Dockery, Michonne, Monica Potter, NBC, NBCUniversal Media LLC, NeNe Leakes, Niki Yang, nina dobrev, Olivia Dunham, Olivia Olsen, Once Upon a Time, Parenthood, Penelope Wilton, princess bubblegum, red, Red Riding Hood, Regina, Rocky, Ruby, Sabor de Soledad, Sarah Braverman, shameless, Shania, Shanola Hampton, Showtime, Snow, Snow White, Sophie, Spring, Steven Yeun, Storybrooke, Tani, The CW, The Good Wife, The Governor, The New Normal, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, Tina Fey, TV, Veronica Fisher, Winter, ya burnt!
The Primetime Emmys are supposed to represent the cream of the crop when it comes to honoring the year’s best television programs, and before I go any further, I’d like to say that for the most part, the academy did a good job with its nominations.

The Parenthood Screening which rounded out the ATX Television Festival in Austin this weekend was much fun. I am a big fan of the show and my very favorite actors were in attendance. I was relieved that unlike other screenings at the festival, they did not show the last episode of the season or I […]Read More ATX Festival, ATX Television Festival, Austin, Bonnie Bedelia, Braverman, Craig T.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are a real-life couple and now they play a couple in the new movie Hit and Run. I don’t hate either of them but I’m not a huge fan of either of them either. Hit and Run was written by Dax Shepard who also is co-directing it; a big move […]Read More Bradley Cooper, dax shepard, hit and run, Kristen Bell, NBC, Parenthood, wedding crashers
It was another busy day of pick-ups, renewals and cancellations of various television shows, and NBC and ABC did most of the heavy lifting. NBC kept chugging along as it picked up two new dramas while also renewing some old favorites. According to Deadline, Parenthood has been renewed, and both Community and30 Rock will be coming back with shortened orders which […]Read More 30 Rock, A Gifted Man, ABC, castle, Community, featured, Grey's Anatomy, modern family, NBC, Once Upon a Time, Parenthood, Revenge, Suburgatory, The Middle, upfronts
Airing during the pre-game coverage, I know I missed this gem of a commercial on Super Bowl Sunday. Advertising all of NBC and its shows, the extended version spans nearly four minutes and features a musical number from How to Succeed in Business in Really Trying. Watch the casts of NBC’s hits (and misses) like […]Read More 30 Rock, Are you there Chelsea?, Community, how to succeed in business without really trying, musical, NBC, Parenthood, Parks & Rec, Super Bowl, super bowl commercials, Whitney
