Television became a passion of mine in my mid-teens. As I've altered and defined, I continue to love TV.I credit 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' with flourishing this love of TV. Though my TV obsession, actually developed with 'Dawson's Creek.' Yes, I am ashamed to admit how invested I was (and still am) about Pacey vs. Dawson. I've been a writer as long as I could do it. However, I only began freelancing and blogging two years ago. There is someth

'The Fosters' Season 3 Episode 13 Recap: 'If And Then'
The Fosters resolved--or temporarily solved--some of the major problems surrounding this season. In "If and When," AJ officially made a decision about the TY situation.

Best 'Idol' Solo Performances From Hollywood Week

'American Idol' 2016 Recap: Best Solo Performances From Hollywoo
American Idol started its final Hollywood week. The series filled the night with anxious hopefuls trying to make one final impression on the judges. Overall, the night felt a bit rushed. American Idol packed a lot into this short 42-minute episode. We barely saw some of the early favorites, but we saw some contestants who haven't gotten much airtime this season of Idol.

Some of them reminded us just how great their voices sound. Others proved that they were rightfully ignored in the American Idol edits. By the end of the night, 75 contestants became 51. These 51 have one last chance to pro...

'The Fosters' Recap: Battle Scars

'The Fosters' Season 3 Episode 12 Recap: Battle Scars
The Fosters ended the first half of season 3 with a major win for the family. Now, it seems like the writers want to crush our hearts into a million pieces. First, we have Callie and Brandon who can never be brother and sister in the true sense--too much history. They can also (probably) never reunite romantically.

This puts them in an awkward, heartbreaking limbo for the rest of their lives. Meanwhile, the heart and soul of the Adams-Foster clan face a huge life-threatening dilemma. Our Foster mothers must survive this health scare. This half of The Fosters season 3 is making us an emotio...

'American Idol' 2016 Recap: Hollywood Week Group Rounds - Let Th
Last night, American Idol 2016 held our favorite part of Hollywood week: group rounds. Besides the great performances, the most exciting part of Idol's group rounds is the backstage drama. Last night's episode was full of it.

We started to see some of the American Idol contestants' true colors. We saw some outstanding group performances--the real threats started to show. We also saw who would be willing to cut another contestant for the glory. A few of these contestants were punished by the karma police. Others lived on to fight another day on American Idol.

Way too much went down on Id...

'American Idol' 2016 Recap: Hollywood Hell Week Begins
Last week on American Idol 2016, the series closed its tour bus doors forever. The dream for many Idol hopefuls died when the lights went out. However, the journey began for many others. This week, American Idol began its final Hollywood week.

Hollywood week usually presents one of the most exciting parts of the process. We get to see who has the stamina and talent to make it to the live shows. American Idol 2016 began Hollywood week as usual with the ten person line up performances.

This is one of the most lackluster parts of Hollywood week. The American Idol producers tried to add a lit...

'The Fosters' Season 3 Midseason Premiere Recap: Right Back Wher
The stress and drama of last season on The Fosters felt very present on last night's episode. As the series eased into the second half of The Fosters season 3, there was a lot of changes to adjust to--not just for the characters but the audience as well.

One of the clearest changes was the introduction of new Jesus, the (not-so) end of Brandon and Callie's romance, and the return of Lexi. In the end, the Fosters started the season with a lot of promise.

Fost and Found

Callie gives a presentation about her app. While doing it, she meets two new characters. A boy named Jack who seems reall...

Last night, American Idol 2016 edged closer to the final auditions ever. On the 5th night of Idol auditions, it was a mixed bag of auditions from Philadelphia, Little Rock, and Atlanta. We saw many new faces and a couple of returning ones.

Judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban continued to search for a star to end the American Idol journey with a bang instead of a whimper. So far, we are not sure Idol will achieve this dream.

After a very lackluster start to this week's American Idol 2016 auditions, the series bounced back with an exciting crop of potential Idols. Judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban had an abundance of talent to pick from last night.

Denver and Little Rock proved to be very strong cities for the American Idol 2016 auditions. This night produced a feast of soul singers, country stars, and emotionally, present singer-songwriters.
