Welcome to TV-Tastic. My name is Shawn O’Halloran and I live in Las Vegas and I’ll be your captain going forward. I started this blog as a companion site to The Movie Bros., a great movie review blog run by my cousins Matt and Brian Volke that I have regularly guest-blogged and commented on. With all of the fun I’ve had I realized that my other great love in entertainment, television, was being woefully ignored and I wanted to fix that.
Here’s how it works here: There will be reviews and opinion commentary posts on the shows that we have an interest in and we watch and like. What that means is that there will be a whole lot of action shows, a whole lot of premium cable and basic cable shows, a few sitcoms (including animation) and a whole buttload of Sci-Fi. We’ll discuss current shows, classic shows and shows that were great that left us far too soon. I do a lot of research and I provide a lot of insight into television shows and the television industry itself and I like to give you a perspective that maybe you haven’t encountered before.
I am as serious as a heart attack when it comes to television. I bet you know a lot of people with a DVR, in fact, you yourself may have one. Well, how many people do you know that slapped a 2 terabyte hard drive on to theirs to make sure that they would never miss a show because the box was full. I’m that guy.
Now, you may notice that a lot of your favorite shows haven’t been covered here in the past and the reason for that is simple: I’m not flippin’ Matt Roush from TV Guide, here, I can’t watch every flippin’ show. However, we’re expanding! Along with myself and Victor De Leon (of Vic’s Movie Den, The Movie Bros. and Horror News.Net), we’ve recently been lucky enough to add Redeye Rogue (Red Eye Rogue) and Paul Knoop (That Dutch Film Lover) so we’re trying to cover as much as possible.
We will continue to be doing reviews on as many new shows as humanly possible and we will provide television news that we would think would be an interest to our readers, even if it’s of no interest to us. For example: I have no interest in CSI but I, of course, recognize that a significant portion of our readers do so we’ll always report on breaking news regarding cast changes, etc. I used to have a ban on reality, but that ban has been lifted to the extent that contributors may contribute anything they want regarding reality.
Now, that that’s all been said, please enjoy this picture of William Shatner sans toupée.
