TV Wasteland: August Heat by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 20, 2012)
True Blood wraps up its fifth season this week, Grimm tackles two nights with the same episode, and Samwise Gamgee visits the Creature Cantina. Don't believe me? Take a look

TV Wasteland: Samurai Time by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 06, 2012)
Let me get this straight: baseball is not an Olympic sport, but competitive trampoline is? Pardon me, I’m going to curl up in the fetal position and sob for a while.

TV Wasteland: Medals and Madness by Rob Vaux, Writer
(July 30, 2012)
The Olympics dominates television for the next two weeks -- and once again, please take every opportunity you can to tell NBC how much their coverage blows -- leaving other networks to hold the course rather than unleashing anything new or notable. Here's

TV Wasteland: Cable Domination by Rob Vaux, Writer
(July 23, 2012)
Game of Thrones. The Walking Dead. Falling Skies. True Blood. Warehouse 13. Alphas. What do all these shows have in common? They're all on cable, not the networks. And with the possible exception of Lost, no network has produced anything nearly as engaging

TV Wasteland: Fare Thee Well Eureka by Rob Vaux, Writer
(July 16, 2012)
Tonight, we say good-bye to Eureka, the quietly stalwart Syfy staple that takes a final bow after five seasons. The show was never a blockbuster like The Walking Dead or The X-Files, and its expensive production kept it from turning a big profit. The bosse

TV Wasteland: Summer in the City by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(July 09, 2012)
We’re all full of barbecue from various 4th of July celebrations, and another week of television beckons us forward. Let’s have a look!

TV Wasteland: Happy Independence Day by Rob Vaux, Writer
(July 02, 2012)
The 4th of July is usually fairly quiet, but this week we have two events worth noting. The first is Syfy’s annual Twilight Zone marathon, a chance for the station to step away from wrestling and absurdly cheap movies to remember their actual roots. Rod

TV Wasteland: June Gloom by Rob Vaux, Writer
(June 25, 2012)
It's another quiet week on the Wasteland. Let's have a look. Monday Eureka (Syfy, 9:00 PM EST) Carter and Allison just want to enjoy their honeymoon, but trouble in Eureka puts the kibbutz on their plans. Lost Girl (Syfy, 10:00 PM EST) Bo runs int

It’s another quiet week on the Wasteland. Let’s get to it!

TV Wasteland: Falling Skies and Dinosaurs by Robert Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(June 11, 2012)
Summer really used to be a TV wasteland. The new shows debuted in September – a date originally chosen to coincide with the release of the new car models which drove their advertising revenue – and ended in May. Summer was left to the movies, or to cop

TV Wasteland: Will This Blood Run True? by Robert Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(June 04, 2012)
With a schedule this empty, it’s not hard to spot the high point for this week’s viewing. HBO finishes off Game of Thrones only to pave the way for its other big genre hit, True Blood. The venerable vampire saga is dearly in need of a creative infusion

TV Wasteland: Game Over by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(May 28, 2012)
The curtain falls on Game of Thrones’ successful second season this week, marking an end to the current TV cycle and giving us a chance to reflect on who survived it all. The Secret Circle is out. Alcatraz is out. Terra Nova, Sanctuary and The River are

TV Wasteland: Springtime Wasteland by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(May 21, 2012)
The end of May sees a lot of movies and only a few regular series still running. Let’s take a look at what the boob tube has brewing for us.

TV Wasteland: Friday Night Finales by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(May 14, 2012)
Another round of season finales hits this week, most on Friday night where The CW’s line-up joins Grimm in taking its bows. Have a look at what’s on tap!

TV Wasteland: Seasons Close by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(May 06, 2012)
‘Tis the season for season finales. Five arrive this week for genre shows, with more on the way later this month. Thankfully, four of them are already renewed or very likely to be renewed, and the fifth – The CW’s The Secret Circle – at least stand

TV Wasteland: Fringe Renewed by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(April 29, 2012)
Like a lot of Friday shows, Fringe has flirted with cancellation for several seasons now, putting fans through a wringer of expectation and anxiety before somehow staying alive to fight another day. Now, finally, all those doubts have been laid to rest. Fo

TV Wasteland: Wesley, Felicia Day, and Some Cat Named Cage by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(April 22, 2012)
This week’s highlights include a Guild mistress on Supernatural, a TNG veteran on The Big Bang Theory and too much Nicolas Cage for comfort. Let’s get to it!

TV Wasteland: Eureka’s Final Season by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(April 16, 2012)
I spend a lot of ink jumping all over Syfy on this column – and let’s face it, they deserve it most of the time – but this week provides a chance to see them doing something right. Season Five of Eureka premieres tonight, officially the series’ fin

TV Wasteland: Bad Luck by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(April 09, 2012)
TV hits an April lull again, in preparation for May sweeps. Let’s have a look! Monday Being Human (Syfy, 9:00 PM EST) Season Two comes to a close as Sally’s mother returns and Aiden decides to take out Mother. A whole lotta Freud going on here.

TV Wasteland: Spring Has Sprung by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(April 01, 2012)
Passover starts this Friday night and Easter’s on Sunday. In the meantime, let’s see what’s on the tube to keep us occupied!

TV Wasteland: The Game Is On by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(March 25, 2012)
Game of Thrones returns this Friday, generating the kind of intense fanboy frothing usually reserved for the terms “Christopher Nolan” and “Batman Movies.” Not that it’s unwarranted.

Tournament Wasteland by Rob Vaux, Editor
(March 18, 2012)
A reasonably busy week hides the lack of obvious titles to open the column. So let’s get to it!

TV Wasteland: Walking On by Rob Vaux, Editor
(March 11, 2012)
This week witnesses a pair of notable season finales, one for The Clone Wars and the other for The Walking Dead. The former has saved the Star Wars franchise in many fans’ eyes, and never suffered for a dip in quality (the odd bout of Jar Jar-ism notwith

TV Wasteland: We Got Your Back by Rob Vaux, Editor
(March 04, 2012)
Breaking In returns this Tuesday! And since I am literally the only one who cares, I’ll just jump into this week’s list.
