The Twitter Collection

In keeping with my plan to do at least a weekly update but also recognizing that the things I’m working on need more time to simmer, I give you the inaugural Twitter Collection post. Part of my Twitter stream is devoted to post updates, but sometimes I just have small, random thoughts or things to share that just aren’t fitting (or just not quite ready) for a full blog post. So here are a few older things you missed if you’re not following @TheLTtweet (for newer things, just look to the right).

It's a good system.

The post for this movie is still getting more hits per month than anything else.

Even when I get bored of Caskett and all the obstacles related to that 'ship, I never get bored of Ryan. Or Perlmutter, who should be on the show more often. (I was really tired of Ryan's floppy hair though. If you're not Hugh Grant, you probably can't do the floppy hair.)

It's such a good show. Kelsey Grammer, Patricia Heaton, Ty Burrell, Fred Willard and Josh Gad all work at a TV news station.

And sometimes I join the masses with a good retweet:

Fall TV is almost here!

Last week, I spent a lot of time watching trailers and promos for the upcoming TV season, and I made huge list of things I’m going to try out, but really, it mostly all looks kind of lackluster. There are a handful of shows I really care about and am excited for, and most of the rest are only on the list because I like people who are in them. And apparently Disney, parent of ABC, owns my soul. I hope they keep it on a shelf next to Marvel and Lucasfilm.

The TV Guide website has a grid that puts ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and The CW programming head-to-head each day so you can better weep over a mass of shows that all happen at the same time (this is only a problem for me for a half hour on Thursday). It also has an alphabetized list that includes cable and premium channels and premiere dates. And lastly, there’s a calendar of premiere dates, so you can better appreciate just how crowded  Thursday, Sept. 26, and Sunday, Sept. 29, are. For real.

I don’t know what y’all are planning to watch (or at least give a shot) but here’s my “If I had all the time in the world” schedule. It includes links to trailers and promos for most new shows on the list. All times are central time.

Coulson!!!

It’s been confirmed that my (perhaps everybody’s) favorite SHIELD agent, Phil Coulson, will be in Joss Whedon’s new ABC pilot based on the Marvel universe government agency.

YAY!

Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, was first introduced in 2008’s Iron Man and was in three of the five movies leading up to Marvel’s The Avengers (Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor), and then in The Avengers. The only news that could be as equally awesome would be if somebody told me How I Met Your Mother was finally ending so Cobie Smulders could reprise her Avengers role as well. Somebody make that happen; the clock is ticking for Ted to meet The Mother.

There’s a an Access Hollywood story here, and a report from New York Comic-Con here. Don’t read either if you have yet to see The Avengers and don’t want to be spoiled for A Big Thing (and if you HAVEN’T been spoiled yet, perhaps look into contacting the Department of Miracles).

I leave you now with this:
