Hey, readers

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

Some of you may have come here via my Rabbit Ears column in The Herald. Some of you may have wandered in from who knows where, looking for snacks and a place to prop up your feet for a while. I accept all comers.

So who the heck am I, and what's this thing going to be about, anyway? By night I'm the assistant city editor at The Herald, a transplant from Colorado by way of Oregon. And this thing is going to be about TV: shows and trends and news and anything else that strikes my fancy in between work-work. (Warning: A fair amount early on will be about Game of Thrones.)

I did not set out in life to write about TV. I didn't even watch it all that heavily until I moved here almost eight years ago and fell in with a TV-watching crowd. Then I started shelling out big money for cable and premium channels, and discovered that people write about this stuff for a living and think about it and have interesting things to say. Pretty soon I was knee deep in it. And now here we are.

I enjoy television, mostly for one simple reason: The stories are seemingly endless. When shows have characters that are well drawn, dialog that's sharp and stories that are complex, I want to spend as much time with them as possible.

If you're reading this, hopefully it means you feel the same. So let's talk.


What am I watching?
The Good Wife, Vikings, Bates Motel, Nashville, Go On (don't ask me why), Modern Family, The Office, Parks and Rec, Community.

What am I looking forward to in the next few months?
GAME OF THRONES, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development

What are some of my all-time favorites? (in addition to many mentioned above)
House, In Treatment, early ER, early CSI, The West Wing, Lost, Downton Abbey
