Why You Need To Be Watching ABC’s Selfie

Selfie isn’t a perfect show by any means, but if we take an honest look at the first four episodes of many of our favorite comedies, it’s hard for a show to completely hone in on its humor in such a short amount of time. So for comedies, I typically find myself forgiving minor quibbles early on if I’m generally enjoying the show’s voice and heart and finding myself caring about the characters in such a short amount of time—which is absolutely the case with Selfie.

Review: The Flash “Going Rogue”

Review: Jane the Virgin “Chapter Three”

Another week, another smart, funny, sweet installment of CW’s critically acclaimed series, Jane the Virgin. The good news is that the show has been picked up for a full season….the bad news is that not nearly enough people are watching and last night’s ratings really put it in dangerous territory even by CW standards. However, the other bit of good news is that The CW rarely airs a show that gets this much love from the critics so I would imagine that it has a longer leash than some of the other struggling series across the network, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still hound every one we know until they give this delightful little series a shot.
