A Christmas Carol
DVD / Video
Walt Disney Pictures
Do you think that TV legends can't master computer animation? Well then ... You clearly don't know Dick.
It's Tuesday afternoon. And Nancy and I are slowly making our way through the crowded aisles at the LA Convention Center, trying to take the whole thing in. And -- out of the corner of my eye -- I spy a caricature of a favorite performer of mine being displayed on a computer monitor. So I wander...

Do You Remember ... The Disney Channel's Original Schedule
Like many Disney fans, I am still upset that the Disney Channel was highjacked by 'Tween Programming (programming for pre-teenagers) and that as part of that new philosophy, the late night Vault Disney programming was eliminated. The original concept for the Disney Channel when it began over twenty years...

Live "Whose Line" stage show a thrilling comedy treat
How many of you remember the ABC series, "Whose Line is it Anyway?" The all improv program that featured Drew Carey as its alleged MC as well as a crew of incredibly quick witted comics. Among the performers that appeared on that show were Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood...

Nick makes bid to win over tween toon fans with "Danny Phantom"
So if you're Butch Hartman -- the creator of Nickelodeon's white hot hit, "The Fairly Oddparents" -- what do you do to try and top yourself? Well, how about taking a walk on the weird side by liberally mixing superhero heroics, paranormal phenomenon, teen angst as well as a pretty twisted sense of humor...

The Essential Geek #9: Joss Whedon
This May will mark the end of a television era. That's when the WB is expected to air the final episode of their vampire-lawyer-Los Angeles series "Angel." Late last week, in spite of improved ratings this season and a renewed creative vigor, the WB decided to issue an early cancellation for the show...

The Essential Geek #8: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
I've just spent every last stinking second of my weekend at a sci-fi convention. For those who have been to one, no explanation is necessary. For those who haven't, no explanation will suffice. There's fat guys in stormtrooper outfits, constant chatter about geekly books and movies and TV shows, and...

"If I Had a Hammer..."
Let's take a trip in the Wayback Machine, shall we? Back to -- say -- November 17, 1978. Why this date? Because it is the day that a mistake aired on TV. A mistake that causes eyes to roll and sighs to be heaved whenever it's mentioned. A mistake known as the "Star Wars Holiday Special." This year marks...

The Essential Geek #5: The Star Wars Holiday Special
I have many memories from the line-up for "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace." Sitting damp under a trash bag on Ohio Street during a torrential downpour and chatting with my friend who got to see the movie early (***). Missing Roger Ebert and his interview team by that much. Dragging a massive...

Will TV viewers give "8 Simple Rules" a second glance (and a second chance) tonight?
"You say goodbye, and I say hello." -- Paul McCartney It's kind of ironic, actually. Given that the special 1-hour episode of "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" that airs on ABC this evening is called "Goodbye." I mean, if you take things at face value, this show is supposedly about how...

The Essential Geek #2: Send Me An Angel
We're living in a golden age of television. If you're a half-hour sitcom fan, you probably think I'm smoking some kind of reinforced plastic for making the above statement. But you hour-long drama folks, you know what I'm talking about. You hear me. Holla, as the kids say. (Some kids. Somewhere. I'm...
