Well hello there, come here often?

When the lovely and charming ladyfirefly told me of her plans to start her own tv blog, I knew I had to participate. She and I have always been two peas in a pod when it came to our television shows. I, like she is, am slightly....obsessed? That sounds harsh. Let's go with enthusiastic instead. Much nicer, less stalkertastic.

ANYWAYS, I guess I should introduce myself. I'm Maudie and tv shows are my blessing and my curse. I get emotionally involved and simply have to discuss everything television or I may actually die. What can I say? It's a compulsion. So needless to say, when ladyfirefly asked me to contribute to her new blog, how could I say no?

My review style is a little different from our fearless leader's. I don't do liveblogs, I'm much more of a watch, think, and criticize person. My reviews will focus on theories and plot discussion, as well as sassy summations of story lines (you can never go wrong with alliteration), and will generally be posted the day after the show airs.

I'll be doing joint discussion with the lovely ladyfirefly on The Voice and, the obsession to end all obsessions, Gossip Girl. Those should be....interesting. I'll be contributing the following show discussions all on my lonesome:
  • Fringe
  • The River
  • Nikita
  • Supernatural
  • The Vampire Diaries
  • White Collar
  • Lost Girl
  • Face Off
  • Merlin
  • Spartacus: Vengeance
  • Downton Abbey
  • Dexter

I am so thrilled to be a part of this!! See you on the flip side kiddies.

You know you love me,


General Housekeeping

Okay so the way it will work (because the last few posts are my experiments of sorts for the most part). My hour long shows will be broken up into either 15-20 minute increments, or split up by seperate story lines depending on which suits the show best.  The half hour shows will be split into two, or possible if it has one streamline story one long blog. I'll reserve a sentence or two at the end to rate it or decide whether it is: I Expect More, Okay, Great, and  I CANNOT EVEN.

Here is an updated list of the shows I will be reviewing and those with the * by them will more than likely be live blogged.

Once Upon a Time *
Leverage *
GCB (When it begins airing)

How I Met Your Mother *
The Voice (I will be splitting this with my lovely collaborator)
Castle (May have guest blogger from time to time)*
Smash (Sometimes)

New Girl*
Raising Hope

Happy Endings
Revenge * (Splitting this with my lovely collaborator)
Psych *

The Big Bang Theory *

 I Will dedicate this night to my Baby Come Back shows that have been taken off the air, and I still mourn for them:
Legend of the Seeker
Pushing Daisies

Doctor Who *

And on Thursdays, I'll be holding give-aways for followers of the blog.  You must comment in order to participate and I will literally pull a name out of a hat! They may start out small, but when a good amount off people start following I'll start with Adsense and the more we earn the more you win!

Stay Shiny,
Lady Firefly

Psych- Indiana Shawn and the Temple of Kinda, Crappy Rusty Old Dagger

Okay so On-Demand has ever so sweetly put up the newest episode of Psych before it airs! So this will be a live blog and as always I will keep the spoilers of the episode under the cut!

Wanna be MC Clap Yo Hands,

I like being weird and taking things slow a la Jess,

No liveblogs tonight!  I'll be out this evening instead of typing away on my couch. But expect some reaction/review blogs tomorrow as well as some live blogs from New Girl and Raising Hope.

Stay Excellent,
Lady Firefly
