I've been reviewing all of this fall season's new TV shows over at Time Out Chicago. There will still be a few more to come in the next few weeks including the new CW shows and Fox's Almost Human, which premieres in November. You can find all these reviews over at timeoutchicago.com. Enjoy and happy new TV season!
Over at RogerEbert.com you can find a piece I wrote about the launch of FXX and the expansion of the FX brand. I'm very excited about writing for the site and was extremely pleased to have the opportunity to talk to FX CEO John Landgraf for the piece.
I've been doing a bit more writing over at Time Out Chicago (as well as putting some work in on the magazine's recent website upgrade). Here's a list of what I've been up to:
- I chatted with Nick Frost and Simon Pegg about their new movie Paul. Super nice fellas.
- Spoke with actor Bret Harrison about his new show Breaking In.
- Discussed the future of Chuck with executive producer Chris Fedak at Chicago's C2E2 Comic Convention.
- Reviewed the films Drive Angry 3D and happythankyoumoreplease and the first six episodes of Games of Thrones.
Fun stuff! I'll try to be better about posting this stuff a little closer to when it's actually published online.
I'm not going to waste your time making up explanations for why it's been a ridiculous amount of months since I've blogged here. For now, I will just provide you some links to what I've been doing lately and promise to try to return on a more regular basis:
- I covered this year's San Diego Comic-Con at Time Out Chicago's blog. It was super big fun and I am counting the days until next year.
- I sat down and chatted with my new nerd crush Edgar Wright and his latest leading man, Michael Cera to chat about Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I love this movie to pieces and it breaks my heart that it's lost out at the box office to more derivative fare.
- And, as always, you can check out my daily TV blog posts to see "What's on TV Tonight." I should be doing some coverage of fall's new and upcoming shows.
So yeah, that's what's been up lately. Plus, I'm currently toying with the idea of transferring one of the projects I finished up during ScriptFrenzy into a web series. If that ends up happening, I can pretty much guarantee I'll be here non-stop boring you to tears about it. In order to get to that point, though, I have to finish tweaking the script: baby steps.
