Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, in honor of baseball season starting last week, we are going to share our top 3 favorite sports movies, but don’t worry, Smith will still find a way to mention the fact that he’s reading “War and Peace.” In the second half of the show, we unveil a new segment, Dorking Out Debates. What do we watch first when a movie remake is coming out? Do you watch (or rewatch) the old version before going to see the new version? We’re going to argue about it. And finally, we will end the show […]Read On »

Stars: Heather Morris, Nancy Kerrigan, Mr. T, Bonner Bolton, Erika Jayne, David Ross, Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Rashad Jennings, Nick Viall Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: April 10th, 2017 By far my favorite night on DANCING WITH THE STARS is “The Most Memorable Year” night. Filled with emotion and honesty, it’s the night where we truly get to see the contestants for who they really are and where they came from, whether it be twenty years ago or, in the case of Mr. T, sixty four years ago. Sadly, Mr. T ended his run on DWTS tonight, along with […]Read On »

RIVERDALE, in its freshman season on the CW Thursday nights, has been adapted from the famous ARCHIE comics by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Executive-produced by Greg Berlanti (who is also behind The CW’s DC superhero universe shows), RIVERDALE is a lot darker than its source material. Archie Andrews (played by K.J. Apa), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and their high school classmates live in a world of secrets, lies, blackmail and murder. Mädchen Amick, who plays Betty’s mom Alice, knows something about playing characters who live in just that kind of small town – she […]Read On »

CRIMINAL MINDS is now in its twelfth season, Wednesday nights on CBS. Paget Brewster has had a unique relationship with the series, which concerns the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU).

Stars: Heather Morris, Nancy Kerrigan, Mr. T, Bonner Bolton, Erika Jayne, David Ross, Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Charo, Rashad Jennings, Nick Viall Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: April 3rd, 2017 DANCING WITH THE STARS is well into season 24 and it couldn’t feel more rushed. Sorry, but I have a BIG pet peeve to vent here – there is a HUGE lack of drama when Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announce at the end of the show who is in jeopardy and then with one big woosh they announce the other nine or ten couples are safe. One of […]Read On »

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Episode 46 of the POP SHOW starring Anthony C. Ferrante is here and once again without Anthony as he was off doing some promotion for his Lifetime thriller FORGOTTEN EVIL. So instead it was left to Ryan Mitchelle (@walkawayENT), Sonia Mansfield (@TheSoniaShow) and myself (@PeterbrownAX) to helm the ship. And helm it we did as we discussed a variety of topics including the season finale of THE WALKING DEAD, which only I watch so it was a quick conversation. Also we profess our love of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and how it is 20 years old this year. That leads […]Read On »

Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we chat about S-Town, a podcast from This American Life and Serial. All seven episodes dropped last Tuesday, and we listened to every episode. Is it addictive listening like Serial season one, or is it disappointing like Serial season two? In our second segment, we review the live-action remake of GHOST IN THE SHELL, and talk about the controversy surrounding the casting and more importantly – is it a good movie? And we end our show by sharing what we are dorking out about, including the series finale of BIG LITTLE LIES, which […]Read On »

CHICAGO JUSTICE is the latest entry in executive producer Dick Wolf’s spectacularly successful NBC CHICAGO FIRE-verse, which also includes CHICAGO P.D. and CHICAGO MED (the verse also occasionally crosses over with LAW & ORDER: SVU). Like its siblings, CHICAGO JUSTICE actually films in Chicago, and shares cast with the other shows as various plot elements can span several series. The difference between CHICAGO JUSTICE and the others is that the new show deals specifically with the State Attorney’s office. Leads on CHICAGO JUSTICE include Philip Winchester as prosecutor Peter Stone, son of original LAW & ORDER prosecutor Ben Stone (played […]Read On »
