2013: The Best of TV

Welcome to 2014! Sherlock is back (and Greg Lestrade is lookin’ FINE). Community is back. Victor Garber is back. David Tennant is coming to American television. Parks and Rec hits its 100th. I’m finally going to watch Scandal and The West Wing (#resolutions). It’s all very exciting. But before we jump into the new year, let’s look back at the best of the last. (more…)

New Girl- Scene Study: Cooler

Hello, TV Mouse Readers!

I’m so thrilled to be posting here, and I’m especially happy to be doing a little breakdown of one of (IMO) the biggest surprises of TV: Class of 2012-2013. The scene is courtesy of New Girl, specifically the episode Cooler, in which Nick Miller gets a kiss even better than this one.

Spot the baby actor!

If you’re just checking in, here’s an update: British television has largely consumed my summer. And if you’re just checking in on British television, here’s an update on that: Britain has about ten actors. They’re all wildly talented, and they all take turns appearing in each others’ shows and blockbuster films and it’s FINE. It’s fun, actually—it’s like a game. Spot the actor. A friend who’s marathoning her way through Doctor Who texted me in a frenzy when she realized that Cassandra was Madam Hooch in Harry Potter (her exact words: “OMGGG I’M BEATING OUT A SAMBA RIGHT NOW”). These are the exciting moments brought to you by the BBC.

In honor of England’s bigger-on-the-inside entertainment industry, I figure it’s time to talk about our favorite “spot the actor” moments. You know what I’m talking about: those “I had no idea who you were the first time I saw this, but now I know and love you and look at you you’re such a baby!” moments. We’ve all been there. Let’s discuss.

Romance According to Television

Personally, I’m still of the mindset that a lollipop taped to a construction paper heart should be an acceptable Valentine at any age. It’s personalized and there’s candy involved; WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM US, WORLD? But for an outside-the-box wooing experience, look no further than your favorite shows. If TV is to be believed (and if it isn’t, I’ve made a hug mistake), these are the most foolproof ways to romance that special someone in your life: (more…)

“It’s sports. It’s supposed to be loud!”–Or, Real Football Teams and the Fictional People Who Love Them

And just like that, football season is over. No more Destiny’s Child reunions, no more confetti angels, no more power at the Superdome. (Beyonce borrowed it to RUN THE WORLD but gave it back because her hips are already doing that.) To help ease your transition into this dark world of increased emotional stability, I’ve put together a list of my favorite NFL fans on television—because on television, football season never ends! Next time you find yourself longing to swoon at conquering men or throw a pillow at a replacement ref, just return to these guys. They’ll never steer you wrong.  (more…)

Not Even a TVmouse: My Favorite Holiday Episodes

When I was almost two years old, I fell asleep at the table on Christmas Eve. My parents decided to read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas anyway. When they got to the line, “Not a creature was stirring, not even a—,” I didn’t move or open my eyes, but I did yell out, “MOUSE!”

TVmouse loves a good holiday story. (more…)
