The holiday season is different for everyone. What you and your family celebrates might have a long tradition, or might have no tradition, or maybe it‘s ever evolving.  The correlation between religious beliefs and holiday rituals has become more and more blurred as commercialization has permeated the holiday landscape.  Mostly, there is a lot of gift-giving, a lot of shopping, office parties, excess drinking, and time with the family (sometimes needed, sometimes unwanted).  On television, there are two brave TV shows that have chosen to buck the conventional rituals and traditions of Christmas and the schmaltzy “holiday episodes” that every single eighties sitcom aired once a year.  On The OC, Seth Cohen gave us Chrismukkah and on Seinfeld, Frank Costanza brought us Festivus.  Today, once and for all, we look to answer the question that has plagued our society for roughly five years: Which is the better TV holiday – Festivus or Chrismukkah? Read more »

Would you like to feel old?  2009 is the twenty-year anniversary of Seinfeld‘s premiere on NBC.  It makes me feel like an old, old man.  In honor of this anniversary (And because, you know, lists are fun.  Everyone loves a list.), we at BuddyTV have decided to count down the 100 greatest TV shows of the past twenty years. This is not a task to be taken lightly.  Rules had to be made, beloved series had to be cut, and a mission statement had to be created to figure out exactly what we mean by 100 Best Shows.  Over the next four days, we will be publishing the list in installments.  We hope you enjoy.  Feel free to argue all you want in the comment section below.  Before we get started, here are the rules I set down before creating the epic list of lists: Read more »

And when we say "giant list," we mean massive.  So bring on the subheads! Read more »

MTV Mai Thais abound.  Fried lobster on a stick is circulating on trays carried by cute waiters.  And then you look around and realize you‘re standing near Donald Faison by a pool surrounded by young MTV starlets.  I take advantage of my environment and steal a few moments with Donald Faison, who I‘ll always fondly remember as Murray, the saggy pants, shaved head, boyfriend of Dee from the adolescent classic, Clueless.I couldn‘t possibly talk to Faison about his current work alone, so I started by asking him about one of his most famous roles.  He told me he was happy to be known as Murray, but now is even more thrilled to have played Turk for a number of years (Scrubs) and now be known as "Clueless Turk."   Read more »
