‘Nikita’ Review: ‘Covenants’

Plenty of shows boast a deep mythology. But they often hoarde that mythology, doling it out in crumbs for a ravenous audience desperate for anything akin to a healthy bite of new info. ‘Nikita’ doesn’t have that problem. Tonight’s episode, ‘Covenants,’ is one that The CW wants you to believe changes everything. That’s not really […]

‘Nikita’ and ‘Archer’ Reviews: ‘The Next Seduction’ and ‘Blood Work’

As always, I reviewed tonight’s episode of “Nikita”, entitled “The Next Seduction”, for TV Squad. But I also covered tonight’s great episode of “Archer” as well over there, filling in for the usual duties done by my podcast partner Mo Ryan. “Archer” is usually hilarious, and tonight’s episode “Blood Test” was no exception.
They will go […]

‘Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan’ drop two more podcasts for your listening pleasure

Maureen “Mo” Ryan and I are back, this time with another guest for our weekly “Mad Men” podcast. We had the pleasure of having Tom Fitzgerald, one-half of the dynamic blogging duo over at TomandLorenzo.com.

My Writing Schedule for Fall 2010

For months, the masses have cried out, “Tell us, Ryan: where will you be writing this Fall?” And by “masses” I mean “my mom,” who doesn’t even really know about this blog. So announcing it here might be kinda pointless. On the other hand, it gets me out of a phone call. So you take […]
