Last week, we introduced you to the Zeno family from Bravo’s The People’s Couch. They were given gems to watch, including the Game of Thrones, Kitchen Nightmares (visiting the episode no one could forget – Amy’s Bakery!), Millionaire Matchmaker with the world’s most disgusting person (who throws a pocket square?!) and we all learned about the world of bionic pets.

This week, TwoCentsTV was able to learn more about the Egber family. In an exclusive with TCTV, you will learn why they chose their spot to watch TV, how the new fame has impacted their everyday lives and who gets a kick out of being asked for their autograph the most.

TwoCentsTV: How did you find out about the show and ultimately, get cast?

Mad Men – Recap & Review – A Day’s Work

Mad Men
A Day’s Work

Original Air Date: Apr 20, 2014

Mike Bednarsky – TwoCents Reviewer

The recap that preceded A Day’s Work ended with Don saying “I have to get back to work” to Megan. This was no coincidence but rather a nod to this episode’s title. A day’s work for Don used to include the weight of maintaining his persona. But now his job is to hide that he no longer has one.

Financial compensation and Dawn’s account reconnaissance aside, Don lacks purpose. Two red flags: he goes out to lunch and with competing agencies (Dave Wooster of Wells Rich Greene). Don manages to conceal his societal floundering when with business acquaintances, but he can’t fool his daughter.

Orphan Black
Nature Under Constraint and Vexed

Original Air Date: Apr 19, 2014

While some shows lose steam their sophomore season, the premiere of Orphan Black is as fast-paced and twisty as ever. Our first glimpse of Sarah shows her running for her life, rain pouring down, literally giving the episode an intense running start. She takes cover in a deserted diner to start calling everyone – Alison and Cosima’s numbers have been disconnected, Felix and Paul don’t answer.

Paul calls back but surprise, it’s Rachel, delightful as ever. Two men come in talking about eggs. Sarah realizes they are after her which they quickly confirm. Since they are not exactly being subtle, the diner owner pulls out a shotgun and tells them to leave. When the shooting starts, Sarah takes the opportunity to run.

My TwoCents: A Twitch in Time (Gaming TV)

twitvI’m a child of the 70′s and 80′s. This was a time when video games really reached mainstream popularity; we had an Atari 2600 that I kept until 1998 and then an Apple IIGS. I loved playing games, my favorite on the Atari was Kaboom! and my favorite on the computer was Oregon Trail, which I still play…though today’s version is a little different, with strip clubs and zombies. Gaming, or as some call it, interactive entertainment is as big as ever. Last year, Internet entrepreneur, Tobias Batton, did a study and realized that video games are even stronger media entertainment than movies. It’s a very eye-opening read.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t only love gaming, but I love to watch my friends game. A year ago, I was introduced to Twitch.TV, a site where you can watch people casting their games and other fun things from all over the world. Based in San Francisco, “Twitch is the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers with more than 45 million visitors per month. We want to connect gamers around the world by allowing them to broadcast, watch, and chat from everywhere they play.” Most people in the Twitch community are fantastic, I know that my group of friends are like a family. Most of them embraced me right away and I’ve had a blast. There are all sorts of things that people cast; games, of course, music videos they created, podcasts, gaming tournaments, or even just them chilling out on camera and chatting with the viewers. Twitch is very interactive, with a built in chat window and you can follow your favorite casters so that you get updates when they are casting, etc. I want to share some of my favorites with you, they’re so worth checking out…

American Idol
Top 7 Results

Hey, Ryan suddenly got really good looking. Oh wait, that’s Kevin Bacon doing the intro. Then Ryan came back. Shoot!

The good news is that the results show is only a half hour. Just enough time to hear what the contestants thought of the previous night and for Randy to critique each of the singers. And he predicted that Jena was the one to beat. I think it’s Caleb. But I can see them in the finale for sure.

Election Day rolls around and with it, some last minute attempts for votes and a devastating event. Meanwhile, Maya’s still in the wind and we immediately see the effects of that bomb at the church, which sets off so many more turns that eventually lead us to what has been frustratingly in front of us the entire time. Seriously, it will leave you either speechless or very upset…maybe both.

Here are the top moments of the episode (which were very difficult to choose, by the way):

Grey’s Anatomy
Go It Alone

Karen Belgrad – Managing Editor
karenbelgrad@thetwocentscorp.com

Time management has never been the strongest point of the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. They can manage to spend countless hours in a delicate surgery, but give them a personal task or moment and it’s almost always rushed. Almost every doctor has worked on their wedding day. Heck, Meredith worked right up until she went into labor.

I’ve always been amazed at how incapable they are of living away from the hospital. So imagine my surprise when so many of them actually attended to things away from there this episode. Of course, there’s still that whole pesky sleep deprived thing going on…

caitlin@thetwocentscorp.com

After a first season with varying ratings, The Crazy Ones’ future is up in the air. On the one hand, it wasn’t renewed with the pack of shows that were picked up already. On the other, we are getting an hour-long season finale- that must mean something, right?

Robin Williams reads a story to a collection of kids. And yes, I mean him and not Simon, because this is Robin at his truest. It’s all an introduction to the fact the local library where he’s doing the reading is about to be closed down- and someone must save it.
