"Trophy Wife" is the Best New Show of the Season

"Trophy Wife" is the Best New Show of the Season

"Trophy Wife" is an example of an excellent series, with an unfortunate title. When the show premiered back in September, I was not planning on watching. But after reading some reviews, I decided to give it a try. And am I glad I did.

The Ten Best "Psych" Episodes

The Ten Best "Psych" Episodes


Since the series finale of "Psych" aired on March 26, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of what I think are the ten best episodes of the series. This was a great show that I looked forward to watching every week. While I'm sad that's its now over, let's look to some of the show's best moments from the past eight seasons.

10. American Duos The second season opener was a great way to expand the universe of the show, and also allowed for some hilarious jokes the way.

9. Shawn Rescues Darth Vader The premiere of season six acted as a reboot of sorts for the show which hadn't been on the air for almost a year. Following a not great season five, this episode was a huge improvement. It had humor, mystery, excitement, and got people interested in the show again.
8. Scary Sherry:Bianca's Toast The first season closer is a just plain hilarious episode. A perfect example of early "Psych", this isn'…

Ranking the Songs of Muppets Most Wanted

Ranking the Songs of Muppets Most Wanted
Since it is still technically opening weekend for the latest installment in the Muppet franchise, I thought it'd be appropriate to rank the original songs featured in the film, from worst to best. Bret Mckenzie, who won an Oscar writing songs for "The Muppets" returns to write them again this time around. "Most Waned" is definitely more of a musical than the last one, and, in my opinion, the songs are better. None of them are duds, each one great in their own way. That's why ranking them isn't an easy thing to do, but I'll try anyway. 
6. Interrogation Song Despite being ranked last on this list, "Interrogation Song" is in no way a bad song. It's just that I thought the others were better. Hilariously preformed by Ty Burrell and the Muppet performers, mainly Eric Jacobson, who preforms Sam Eagle, the song is almost all plot and lacks a catchy tune that the others have. Even though it is masterl…

Film Review: Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted
For my first post, I'll be reviewing "Muppets Most Wanted". Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Muppet fan, and have been since I was very young.  So, needless to say, I had very high expectations for their eight feature film. And I am happy to say, I was not disappointed. "Most Wanted" picks up after the events of the 2011 reboot, "The Muppets", and follows the gang as they embark on a World Tour. Oh, and Kermit is replaced by his evil doppelgänger, Constantine, but that's a very minor subplot and doesn't really go anywhere.
"The Muppets" was a nostalgia-filled reintroduction to these characters, who hadn't been on the big screen since 1999's "Muppet From Space". The reboot hit all the right notes to get people to care about these characters again. And it worked perfectly for that movie. But now Muppets fans, like myself, wanted the next one to be a classic Muppet adventure, and not as …
