It’s Week 1 of American Idol semifinals and the Top 12 ladies are strutting their stuff to songs from the ‘60s. Did the ladies have what it takes to hold the attention of the judges and America? How did they measure up to the Top 12 guys?

How Safe is Your Bathroom?

As of mom of toddlers, I’m constantly thinking about safety. I have safety gates on the stairs and special knobs on the door handles, but I never considered my bathroom as a hazard for me.

Can NBC’s ‘Knight Rider’ Live up to the Memories?

I had prepared myself to be let down when I saw NBC’s two-hour movie/pilot for Knight Rider. However, I must say that producers Dave Bartis (The O.C.) and Doug Liman (Bourne Identity) did a fair job of bringing a second-generation KITT and story into the 21st century.

Well it looks like we might have seen the last original episode ever of Friday Night Lights last Friday. And if you’ve had a chance to see this fine drama, you’d agree this news is a travesty.

Is it time for Clark Kent to Don his Cape on ‘Smallville?’

For seven years now, I have enjoyed Smallville’s tales of a young Clark Kent coming into his own as he’s trying to balance his alien abilities and the responsibility that comes with that power with his human life. But isn’t it about time that Clark grew up already and became Superman?

Can Everyday Women Relate to ‘Lipstick Jungle?’

The show is betting on New York life, high-powered careers and fashions that I can’t even dream of affording to bring it the same success as Sex and the City and maybe it’ll work. Since I wasn’t drawn to that show, it’s no surprise that Lipstick Jungle isn’t an immediate hit with me.

WVA’s Idea To Teach Gun Training is Schools has Merit

West Virginia is contemplating teaching gun training in its schools and I think the idea has merit, especially in a state with a lot of teens that hunt.

On ‘Supernatural,' Dean’s Fate and Other Pressing Questions

Supernatural returned last night for the first of four episodes before CW puts it on hiatus (boo, hiss) and I have to say that it was absolutely stellar episode. Every episode reminds me why I love this show so much.
