True Jackson, VP: Pilot (2008)
Season 1, Episode 1
7/10
Taking it back to classic Nick.
26 June 2019
Nickelodeon has always had the appeal that kids can do anything and this show certainly demonstrates that. Keke Palmer plays True, a young student who is 'discovered' and instantly gets a high-powered corporate job and takes along her friend Lulu played by Ashley Argota.

George Bloom can probably beat you in a spicy wing contest!

Michael Cera took the challenge as a champ and deserves an award for that!

All That: 1101 (2019)
Season 1, Episode 1
8/10
It's the 90s up in here!
24 June 2019
When I read 'All That' was getting new episodes, I was excited. As a fan of the 90s series, this maintains the original 'feel' of the series. All of the cast members did a superb job and each of the skits had me laughing out loud.

All That: Larisa Oleynik/Da Brat (1995)
Season 2, Episode 3
8/10
Alex Mack? Yes, please!
13 June 2019
I was randomly watching episodes of ALL THAT from twenty-five years ago and was over joyed to see Larissa Oleynik as the guest on this particular episode as Alex Sax. The humor here is very appropriate for children. I'm talking about pre-internet, pre-smartphones, etc. Highly recommend this ep if you are a fan of 'The Secret World of Alex Mack'!

Talked to Death (1997 TV Movie)
7/10
If you enjoy watching daytime talk-shows, you will not be disappointed!
7 June 2019
This is a great documentary and features clips from all our favorite talk-shows. My only disappointment was that many of the shows that I watched during my childhood were fake and scripted. Does that reflect poorly on my rating of this production? No. This does highlight that sometimes things can take a far darker turn than was expected if a person agrees to be on a show of this type!

Penumbra (I) (2016)
7/10
It's been a long time!
17 May 2019
Being a huge fan of 'Clarissa Explains It All' and having watched that right before this was started, this viewing was entirely because of Sean O'Neal. Good thing this film was captivating because he was not recognized 28years later. This is a drama dealing with drugs, alcohol, etc and the cast all does a splendid-job

Saturday Night Live: Ariana Grande (2016)
Season 41, Episode 15
8/10
Feeling like a kid...
17 May 2019
We don't often catch Saturday Night Live but we viewed this on HULU very specifically for Ariana Grande and were not disappointed. Her opening dialogue has Kenan Thompson joining in with that they are both Nickelodeon stars. The skit on the Kid's Choice Awards was hilarious!

'Cheese Whiz and Tofu...WTF?'
3 May 2019
That was the opening line from one of the Higher Brothers. Some NYC 'Chinese' dishes are not authentic to the region at all. No one better to say that than these men that are on a tour from Chengdu. This was a fun episode of this show but they all are.

Sometimes you want CHICK FIL-A and BURGER KING at the exact sime time!
3 May 2019
The establishment featured here just did that. Very iconic menu-items are combined; many times the sum-total is greater than the individual components by themselves. Both hosts were very good and the interaction was top-notch.

Great suggestions for Asian ramen.
3 May 2019
This particular episode piqued enough interest to begin ordering each of the brands highlighted. Started with the Hikari miso and will switch next time. Good instant-noodles are expensive!

A contest that had surprising results!
3 May 2019
Most people do not have access to a 900-degree oven but Babish addressed how to make these at home. The calzone competition ended rather surprisingly!

It is agreed - he is a 'dorm-room-hero'
3 May 2019
This installment offers so many tips to eating on a very limited budget. They are 'stoners' but money-saving tips apply to most everyone and their different low-cost recipes seem like they belong at a high-end eatery. Required viewing for students!

An interview with the culinary director that is both informative and useful.
3 May 2019
In the event you can not get to the New York Shake Shack, learn how you make the Spicy Chicken Sandwich at home. What's better than that?

Very interesting, humorous and even a short lesson on sushi.
3 May 2019
How surprising it was to come out of this episode feeling more informed. Andy Milonakis really commands this segment with his knowledge of sushi.

Enjoyable show with Priestley
20 March 2019
Great family show I caught on Amazon Prime one night and was able to binge in one-sitting. Jason Priestley and Molly Ringwald are what drew me in but the funny situations and performances kept me watching.

The Donna Reed Show (1958–1966)
8/10
Wish television was still like this gem!
14 November 2018
I watched It's a Wonderful Life last week and missed watching The Donna Reed Show playing on Nick at Nite in the 80s. I grew up on old shows from the 50s through 70s when television was still admirable and CLEAN.
