Finale week continues as Key & Peele caps off its second season within a year. I’ve been a fan of the duo since their days on Mad TV, a sketch show I wish Fox hadn’t canceled. That series, which introduced me to the likes of Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project), Josh Meyers (Seth’s brother, who is equally as funny), Bobby Lee, and Will Sasso amongst others. Sure, it never launched a star as big as some former SNLers but it was much more consistently funny then SNL and I would watch it during SNL slumps. It is because of Mad TV that Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele became friends and it is because of that series that they’ve been able to become masters of sketch comedy.

This is a funny show. Much funnier then a lot of non-SNL sketch shows of the past and it has become more popular with each episode. The keynote sketch, from this show, that you’ve probably heard of is, the Obama/Luther Anger Translator sketch where President Obama supposedly has an anger translator, named Luther, whom he uses to vent for him. It is a great sketch. One of many from this show. And it’s one that has actually been watched, and commented on, by the President himself.

Definitely an underrated comedy show, though it’s not appointment television. It’s good enough, in my mind, too always have on your DVR and watch when you’ve got nothing else better to do on a slow day. The show deserves a third season and thankfully, just yesterday Comedy Central announced that it would be getting that third season.

Key & Peele airs on Comedy Central at 10:30 PM.

This is one of the most fascinating Reality Shows on television. It is a show dedicated to those who have devoted their whole lives for preparing for the end of the world and boy are some of these people predicting out there premises. There have been people profiled who believe a super volcano will suddenly appear in New York, a second financial collapse that’ll reduce people into becoming barbarians, and people who just plan old think a meteor is going to hit that’ll destroy the power grid and thus civilization. These people range from the mildly interesting to the straight out bizarre– and it’s absolutely fascinating.

Though I believe everybody has dreams of living in the apocalypse, most of those dreamers, like myself, are not actively seeking out the end of the world. Would it be cool? For the first few days, but after a while it’ll get tough because that is how reality works. These people are prepped. These people are who I would want to team up with to survive with. These people wouldn’t accept me because I haven’t been prepping with them. The series does inspire one to actually go out and prepare for the worst, especially after seeing the recent events unfold in New York after Hurricane Sandy.

What I will say is that though I don’t watch much Reality TV because of how crappy most of it is (thanks Bravo and E!), there are vary few times where the Reality TV series is actually interesting. This is one of those TV shows. If you’re going to try and check out a new “reality” series, give this one a go, as I promise you will be absolutely fascinated by some of these people and their out there apocolypse theories. I’m just thankful none of them look like a new age Jim Jones’. Thank god.

Episode Description, “The Time of Reckoning”: A single dirty bomb could cause massive chaos. Tom Perez is prepping for a terrorist attack and suspects it’s only a matter of time before one gets through our defenses. He has not worked in 12 years because he spends most of his day prepping and spends much of his family’s yearly income on preps.

Angel & Faith is well past the half way mark for the “season” and is still moving forward towards Angel’s ultimate goal of bringing Giles back to life. Recent appearances by Willow, Connor, and Gunn have helped to firmly keep the series in the Buffy/Angel verse while exploring past stories and ideas, such as the gang’s adventure in Quor-Toth. Over in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the title character recently faced off with Angel’s former foes Wolfram & Hart. I can’t wait until the two series’ come together and build towards the season’s ultimate climax.

Angel & Faith #16
Official Description: Angel’s plan to resurrect Giles inches ever closer toward success. As he and Faith hack their way toward one more magical item to help in their venture, Angel reveals it is time to get the final part of Giles’ soul. But their triumphant return to London holds more than one surprise: first, the revenge-seeking Nadira and the Slayers come calling…

The new issue, part 1 of “Death and Consequences”, hits stands on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012. Will you be picking it up?

This is it folks, we’ve finally reached the midseason finale of Revolution and I have to say, I never expected the show to be so bland. Everything about the show has felt wrong up to this point. The show, which has been trying to capture a Lost meets The Walking Dead vibe, has not been sitting well with me. It features standout actors from other big shows such as Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), but has never lived up to its potential set from that wicked first trailer that was released back in May.

I have a few theories about this. First, I think it has something to do with the fact that the series features leads that are way too cleaned up for a show that’s set in a post-apocalyptic (or should I say “power”) world. Everybody looks so clean, especially the group that’s been trekking for the better part of eight or nine episodes. These people just look like they keep hitting showers left and right when we know damn well in the story that they have not. Second, and this is the series’ big problem, who’ll gain the power of the pendants hasn’t been utilized enough and are only teased at a level that reminds me of a teaser from FlashForward and/or The Event. These were two event series that only lasted a season. Finally, the big bad Monroe Republic has been thwarted at every turn by the main group led by Miles Matheson and just cannot get a win. When the British girl died, I felt like the show was willing to take risks, until you realize she died by a non-Monroe army adversary. And that also reminds me, the show is not willing to take any risks. (SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR THE WALKING DEAD) The reason people love The Walking Dead is because it does not give a damn about who it takes the life of — in the comics a baby is killed — and I’m pretty sure that same baby won’t last two seasons of the show.

Now, for all of its downfalls, Revolution is still an entertaining series that is only in its first season, and it is my belief that for this show to succeed it’s going to need a kickass fall finale, or else it’ll lose a ton of viewers. They’ve teased a clash between the two groups and if they don’t meet up until the end of the episode, I’ll be pissed… The downside of this finale is that it’s the last episode of the series to air until late February/Early March so now I have to ask… will that hiatus kill this still promising series? My feeling is it’s going to wound the hell of it.

Episode Description, “Nobody’s Fault But Mine”: In the gang’s quest to rescue Danny, the time has come for Miles and Monroe to meet face to face. Meanwhile, on the verge of reuniting with her brother, Charlie is conflicted by a shocking discovery and Rachel tests Monroe’s patience.

Last week’s episode of The Walking Dead proved that the zombie show is not just one of TV’s good shows, it is one of TV’s great shows, thanks to last week’s amazing, gut wrenching episode that left me (and I know pretty much everybody else) in tears at the very end. I will say this, The Walking Dead has quickly redeemed itself from the mistakes it made in the first season and has finally allowed itself to really transfer the genius of the comic book series to television screens.

In tonight’s episode, I cannot help but wonder just how far Rick will have fallen and how far Carl will rise thanks to the events of last week’s episode. I’m also looking forward to seeing the newly hinted, more hinged dynamic that is starting to develop between the far more sympathetic Merle and the Governor as I know they’re going to butt heads sooner rather then later. It is weird to say that for a zombie show, its most compelling elements are not the zombie kills and the tension that comes from the zombie action but the characters themselves. For what felt like a season finale episode, I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series- if it keeps up this trend, The Walking Dead could do the unthinkable and actually win an Emmy, something nobody would have thought possible for a show that’s initial draw was that it was a show with zombies. Kudos to the creative team, just, kudos!!!

Episode Description, “Say the Word”: Rick struggles after experiencing another loss; Michonne has her suspicions about the Governor, who throws a party for the people of Woodbury, but gives it an unusual twist.

NBC is calling this a TV Special, but it is actually a pilot. From Bryan Fuller, the mastermind behind the visually spectacular Pushing Daises, the ever quirky Dead Like Me, and the co-creator of Wonderfalls. If there was ever a remake that could use his touch it would be the Munsters — and man does this look like it has potential. Directed by Bryan Singer and starring Eddie Izzard, Jerry O’Connell, and Portia de Rossi amongst others, the show looks to be filled with spectacular effects (did anyone else see the dragon in the TV spots?!?) and a quirky storyline. I’m hoping that the ratings justify a potential series pickup — since I dig the creative team behind and in front of the camera, but my gut is saying that’s not going to be the case. In which case I have to wonder, is this (rumored) 10 million dollar **pilot** erhm “TV Special” that much of a disaster?!?

Regardless of the outcome, I’m intrigued enough to check out, since it legitimately looks like nothing else on TV and that’s exactly the type of TV I scout out when looking at potential new shows. What’s the point of watching the same old slosh week in and week out when stuff like this is actually being produced. Especially with Bryan Fuller hamming it up in interviews that if this show goes to series, he plans on doing to the Universal Pictures monster catalog what Once Upon a Time is doing with fairy tales and Disney’s catalog and updating them for the modern age — and for the more mature viewer. However, I cannot say if the given special will be good or not, nor can I say if NBC is making a good call on doing what it is doing by “airing” this special all I can say is that whether it turns out good or not, I’m still going to be, at the very least, recording this for a weekend viewing.

Official Episode Description, “Pilot”: A revamping of the 1964-66 TV series “The Munsters” tracks the lives of a ghoulish family. Here, young Eddie discovers he grows hair all over his body during a full moon, and funeral director Herman Munster suffers from a heart condition.
