First, a couple of ground rules for this 10-List. The sitcoms appearing on the list may still be on-air with syndicated reruns, but can no longer be producing new episodes. Also, I need to have watched all of the existing episodes, or close enough to “all” as to make no difference. Another arbitrary rule: No […]Read more "10-List: Firewater’s 10 Favorite Sitcoms"
I never watched this series while it was on the air. It’s not that I never wasted time watching silly stuff. That’s kinda my non-job description. Read some of my posts and you’ll agree with me: I’ve wasted a lot of time during my life. My parents would have agreed with this assessment when I […]Read more "Community: Season 2 — a review"

The show made the Moonlighting mistake of letting Nick and Jess become romantically involved, […]Read more "New Girl: Season 4 — a review"
This is not the first time I’ve watched the first season of New Girl. In fact, I know I’ve watched at least two seasons, possibly three, years ago. Then, I stopped. I’m not certain why, because I remember liking the series. More than likely, life intervened or I got sidetracked by something new and shiny […]Read more "New Girl: Season 1 — a review"
