I'm putting a call into IKEA first thing tomorrow morning to pitch a new line of furniture — the DinoSaϋr — modeled after the classy desk gracing Commander Taylor's office: a T. Rex skull holding up a sheet of glass. Functional,...

“Bylaw” – Dino-Murder, She Wrote.
After a blessed reprieve thanks to the World Series, Fox’s “Terra Nova” returned in full pre-historical force Monday night, with a new record: barely a minute into the hour before some...

Oh, my God. This episode was really, really good.
Things got a little too prehistoric this week on Fox's "Terra Nova," with a meteor strike and resulting sonic wave knocking out all power for the settlement. But here's some CrazySexyMath for you: Take...

We've waded through the fall TV schedule — and made it out alive!
We also found five upcoming shows we'll actually watch (sorry "Charlie's Angels." Not you.). Here's our top five.
"2 Broke Girls" (9:30 p.m. Sept. 19, CBS): Hint: It's about two...

Man, "Terra Nova" was all over the place this week. Last week's episode, and the aftermath, were reminiscent of a misleading second date: You think things are worthwhile, taking a turn for the better, only to be reminded there’s a reason you’...

There are three points that need to be taken away from this week’s episode of “Terra Nova.”
One: Like Tolstoy wrote, “Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way,” and I counted no fewer than three unhappy/messed-up...

As the men point out at the beginning of the episode, "Top Chef: Texas" is looking like a female-dominated season. "Top Chef" is in its ninth season and there has only been one female winner, Stephanie from Season 4.
I'm not a crazy feminist. I like...

The second week of Fox’s "Terra Nova" took a page from Alfred Hitchcock's book, with our band of time-travelling settlers under attack from swarms of reptilian-like birds of prey in a refreshing, quick-paced hour Monday night.
An hour seems a...

Well, I got off to a late start this week, thanks to the American League game between the Detroit Tigers and the Texas Rangers, which stretched well into four hours and 11 innings, pushing the start of “Terra Nova” back by 50 minutes. (By...

The countdown to the season finale has begun on “Terra Nova,” and God help me, at this point, I am invested in this outcome.
Gosh, where to begin. Well, Lucas is back, with his CrazySexyMath, insane blue eyes and -- unexpectedly -- some...

It's the finale “Occupation/Resistance” -- in which this blogger finally realizes: Lucas is reprehensibly despicable.
Between the two-hour long stress of the “Terra Nova” season finale, and the power outages at Candlestick Park...
