Character Spotlight – John Weisbarth

by T Akery October 1st, 2014 | Character Spotlight
John Weisbarth is the host of Tiny House Nation. He is a very strong advocate for the movement of downsizing into very small homes with very small footprints. While he is one of its strongest advocates, he is also very realistic about recognizing that this particular lifestyle is not for everyone.

On the show, he is basically a jack of all trades. He moves from design to construction as well as helping the homeowners' transition from one stage to the next. He is also one of those very likable hosts that isn't overbearing, and is also a fun host that

Character Spotlight: The Doctor in Doctor Who

by Ronald A. Rowe September 24th, 2014
Doctor Who (referred to as simply “the Doctor” on the show)  is one of the most fascinating characters in the history of television.  A Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey (who may or may not be half-human), the Doctor travels through time and space in his trusty TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space), a time and space hopping device that appears on the outside to be a blue police box but is “much larger on the inside”.

There have been twelve iterations of the Doctor since the show’s 1963 inception.  Actor William Hartnell played the character for the first

Tiny House Nation is a show on the FYI channel. It is about couples and families transitioning to a tiny house. These houses are very tiny and the transition is not easy. The show doesn't try to hide it at all and dives right into the challenges as well as the perks of living in such a small house.

Each episode features a different couple or family that has already made the decision to buy a tiny house. There does appear to be some prerequisites to appearing on the show. They have already invested in the building of the home and

Oxygen Network, much like Lifetime TV, profits on the suffering and evil of others on the reality crime series Snapped. It's a typical crime show: gory crime scene photos and and blurry reenactments by actors who look a bit like the their inspiration if you squint. The icky twist is that Snapped follows crimes only women have committed, usually against their husbands.

"The trail was as cold as the Colorado winter." "Her dream would soon turn into a nightmare." The narrator for Snapped throws lousy metaphors and cliches are all over the place.

To be fair, in one's life, a little trash must

Toss Up
Compete to Eat is a fun little show on the Cooking channel. Two chefs cook in home kitchens with the help of their homeowners. They have to use what they have and they only have one hour to prepare a three course meal. The end result is judged by the friends and family members of the contestants. A winner is picked by them.

It is really a show more about having fun than it is about the cuisine itself. Chef Jo and Chef Aldo are pretty fun cooks that have to connect with the homeowners themselves. There is a nice
