“American Horror Story” vs. “Supernatural”: Who’s Scarier? Best Scary TV Shows: “American Horror Story” vs. “Supernatural” I’ve never been a huge fan of horror movies.

“Bob’s Burger’s”: Fox’s Newest Animated Series Like Fox’s other cartoons, “Bob’s Burgers” likely won’t delight everyone’s fancy; it takes a certain palate to appreciate what Fox serves in its Sunday night Animation Domination lineup. However, “Bob’s Burgers” appears to be a worthy mid-season contender. Unlike the more outlandish antics and characters of the other long-running [...]

Summer Shows Just Got Better: A Look into “Persons Unknown”

Persons Unknown
Print Friendly

Summer television series are usually looked at as the afternoon bag of chips meant to hold you over before dinner of roast leg of lamb and garnished mashed potatoes.
