  • 'Simpsons' Halloween Special Is Brand Slam For Butterfinger by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 10/16/2017)

    Columnist's update: Al Jean, executive producer of "The Simpsons," informs me via Twitter today (10-17-17) that Kang and Kodos are indeed visible in "Treehouse Of Horror XXVIII" as "candies" in the trick-or-treat candy bowl also occupied by the Simpson family candy bars (although not in the above publicity photo, apparently). He was gracious in his correction, wishing me a Happy Halloween, which I hearby pass on to all readers of the TV Blog here. My one-word Twitter reply to him was: "D'oh!"

  • 'Westworld' Boldly Goes Where Man And Movies Have Gone Before by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 09/29/2016)

    Thank you, Mr. Gibbons, for leaving a comment here and for reading my review of Westworld. I am grateful for your readership. But please let me emphasize that it is never my intention to dissuade anyone from sampling a TV show they are interested in just because I wrote a negative review of it. This show rubbed me the wrong way, but that doesn't mean anyone else should not enjoy it. The fact is, if you feel you might like the show, then by all means, please don't let my negativity prevent you from watching it. Thanks again for reading. -- ABuckman

  • Obnoxious 'White House' Doc Reveals How First Families Live Like Royalty by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 07/12/2016)

    I wish to thank everyone who left a comment here this week concerning this TV blog I wrote about Tuesday's PBS "White House" documentary. I am grateful for your readership and for the effort you made to post your comments.A couple of things, if I may: To the reader who called me a "twit," let me please note that this is not the first time I have been called this. In fact, it's one of the names I listed in one of the first paragraphs of my book titled "JERK: How I Wasted My Life Watching Television," part of which was about the give-and-take that exists between a columnist and his readers."[Readers of my newspaper columns] had plenty of names for me," I wrote. "They called me a 'phony,' a 'twit,' an 'ass,' an 'a--hole,' a 'bonehead,' an 'idiot,' a 'hack,' a 'gasbag,' a 'scumbag,' a 'schmuck,' a 'fool,' a 'd--k,' a 'hypocrite' and a 'moron.' " It comes with the territory, and so does being called "cranky," by the way ...To the reader who asked if I watched the show: Yes, of course I did, a day or two before I wrote the column (the show was provided in advance of its airdate by PBS). I too found the part about Harry Truman's vital and very laudable role in saving the White House to be fascinating, and something I did not know previously. It did not save the show for me, however. I majored in history and journalism in college. You are free to draw whatever conclusions you wish about the quality of my education ...As for Motel 6, I have never stayed in one, but I would have no problem doing so. I don't know why this chain's good name is applied so frequently as a synonym for "bad motel."  They seem nice to me.That's all for now.  Thanks again for reading.  Have a great weekend. -- ABuckman
