TV Squad logoAs part of our ongoing efforts to infiltrate every one of your senses, we've decided to bring back the APB Podcast, last seen in various forms around two years ago. In this first podcast, Jason Hughes, Kona Gallagher and myself discuss the following topics:

  • The Letterman scandal
  • A minute (if that) about Jon and Kate
  • How the fall season's going so far, including why Dollhouse's ratings are so bad,
  • Ask TV Squad, where we answer a question submitted to Isabelle's column,
  • Picks for the upcoming week.
Running time is 42:33.

Meet the Squad: our new bloggers page

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 17th 2009 1:00PM
TV Squad logoOver the last eight months or so, you've been seeing a lot of new names on TV Squad, and I'm sure you've been saying to yourself, "Self, who are all these people on my favorite TV blog? And why oh why, self, do I not know what they look like? Tell me, self... damn you!"

Well, I have to admit to you all now: I've been remiss in adding the new bloggers to our "Meet the TV Squad" page; I've just been taking people out as they've left the site.

But some hot weather and lack of good baseball on TV (thank you, All-Star break!) gave me the time to redo the page. So when you click on the "Meet the TV Squad" banner on the left side of the screen, you'll see our new bloggers page.

Why we're doing short posts, and a word about video

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 23rd 2009 12:03PM
TV Squad logoFor those of you who have asked us whether Bob has busted into the TV Squad offices and taken over the blog by force, I'm here to say that nothing of the sort has happened. First of all, we have no offices. And second of all, the short posts Bob has done this week are something new that we're trying out (as I've mentioned in the comment sections of many of his posts this week).

Why are we doing this? Well, why not? There are plenty of occasions when a video or picture -- or even a show we don't cover -- deserves a post, but doesn't need a lot of commentary attached. So, what I've asked Bob to do (actually, it was his idea, and I just said "sure") is to post these things with a few sentences of comment, and then open it up to the readers. Some of the posts have gotten some nice discussion going, which is what we were going for.

But this does not mean that we're substituting these shorties for our normal posts. These are supposed to fill in the spaces between the normal posts we do. More info after the jump.

How well do YOU know 24? Take our quiz on Parade.com!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 7th 2009 1:10PM
Kiefer Sutherland in 24What year was the CTU created? Who played President Palmer in Season Five? Who killed Teri Bauer at the end of Season One?

These questions and more are featured in a 24 quiz written by our illustrious leader Joel for Parade.com. I thought I knew 24 pretty well, but Joel managed to throw in a few trick questions that led me astray. Or then again, maybe I just don't know 24 as well as I thought I did. Nah, I think it's the trick questions.

Also featured on Parade.com is a nice little Q&A with Kiefer Sutherland, in which he talks about the possibility of a 24 movie, Barack Obama becoming President, and why he cried buckets over Bambi.

But first, take the quiz and report back on how you did. I'm not even going to admit my pathetic score. It's Joel's trick questions - yeah, that's it.
