Four years ago, my then girlfriend, now wife, Katelyn and I were looking for ways to occupy the so called dog days of summer that were dragging along in Oxford, MS. She was a student; I was a chef/mover/waiter/blogger/beer drinker. (Man. Life was easy then.) Aside from the usual pool going, there wasn’t a whole heckuva lot to do. Netflix hadn’t yet hit its streaming stride and neither of our lives were very demanding, so we sat around and watched a lot of daytime TV. (Neither of us had DVR.)
One day that summer, while she was vacationing with her family and I was hitting the nadir of boredom (which I would KILLLL for now), I suggested we “start a show.” Neither of us had gone back and watched a show that had already been on or caught up to a show that was currently on, as is popular to do now, so we started discussing shows we might want to watch. The Wire, The Sopranos, and West Wing were all quickly dismissed. We were both Lost watchers so the easy, culturally relevant choice of 2009 was out. The decision was proving to be harder than we anticipated. Read more
Today Joseph and Palmer give their thoughts on the new film that is spreading like wildfire, Mud. Read more
Some quick thoughts from Palmer and I about last night’s Oscar Ceremony as we wrap up another year of awards season. I offer my Top 5 things I loved about this year’s show and Palmer commentates.
The Golden Globe nominations came out this morning. For the complete list of nominees along with analysis and thoughts from Palmer, Clayton, and I, check out this post. There were some worthy nominees that give you a good idea of what movies to see and TV shows to watch. Then there were some other nominees which, according to the three of us, would much better belong on a list of the Worst of the Year. Regardless, enjoy and join in on the debate!
It’s been awhile since my wife, Palmer, and I debated and discussed “important issues of the day” on the blog. It’s allowed lots of tension and opinions to bubble up, lots of movies and television to be viewed, and lots of opportunity for us to bring you our latest edition of “He Said, She Said”! Check out our latest edition, where we discuss, debate, and review: Argo, fantasy football, Looper, the “Nashville” series premiere, and the latest seasons of Homeland, Modern Family, and Parenthood!
Welcome to the first ever Wise Guise Round Table! First things first, we’ve listed all the major categories Entertainment Weekly felt were worth mentioning below, along with Clayton and mine’s votes if we were respected enough to get one. So if you’re not as nerdy as some of us are, check out what TV shows, movies, and mini-series were nominated… and which one’s were not! Then, below the list of nominees, is a discussion of sorts amongst many friends of The Wise Guise concerning the nominations… who is deserving, who isn’t, who should win, and who is missing… amongst much hilarity and general discussion about what is the good, the bad, and the ugly of television in the past year! Enjoy!
For this edition of “He Said, She Said,” we discussed one of the most-talked about shows on television that has yet to be discussed on The Wise Guise. So simply two opinions was not enough… we had to go bigger! So we brought in the in-laws!
