The Masked Singer Review (TV Show, 2019)

I’m no stranger to singing reality shows. I’ve watched everything from your smash hits (American Idol, The Voice) to shows people might remember as if part of a fever dream (The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott, The One: Making a Musical Star). It’s just hard to know what’s going to make it or not with so many reality shows produced each year. It’s not a matter of having talent, but having an audience to watch.

The 76th Annual Golden Globe Nominations

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. The ceremony, honoring film and television, will be broadcast live on 6 January at 8 pm EST. These nominees tend to be quite different from the Oscars or the Emmys as the HFPA is comprised of 90 members from 55 countries. They also split films into Musical or Comedy and Drama categories. This allows for twice as many nominees in picture and lead performances, but only single categories for supporting performances, directors, and screenplays.

Ghost Adventures: Artifacts Review (TV, 2016)

I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. I feel like if you enjoy something and it’s not hurting anyone, you should be proud of it. Probably the closest I come to a guilty pleasure is the never-ending onslaught of ghost hunting shows. Travel Channel has most of them, though they are not alone in funding series where adults walk around in the dark and act like every draft from an old building is a sign of demonic possession. It’s silly horror TV with the occasional good scare and I’m down for it.
