My opinion of new shows changes at the drop of a hat, so check back in coming weeks for deletions. Update: I’ve deleted all the new shows and a few old ones from the grid which I no longer watch. So much wasted potential.

I tend to multi-task while the tv’s on, so very few shows get my full attention. Those few are: The Good Wife, The Goldbergs, Grey’s Anatomy, Moone Boy, Billy on the Street and Doctor Who.





Fave TV Comedy #1: Billy on the Street

We in the Muruch household have been meaning to post about our two fave tv comedies: Billy on the Street and Drunk History.

Billy on the Street began on Funny or Die and now airs on the Fuse channel. The show follows comedian Billy Eichner as he runs through the streets of NYC shouting and playing bizarre pop culture games with often confused bystanders and occasional guest celebrities.

My three fave scenes were 1) Billy’s rant about Cameron Diaz, in which he yells for her “to ruin more things!” 2) his “Lana Del Race for the Cure,” featuring several sleepy, disoriented models in Lana Del Ray costumes and 3) his “John Mayer or Pepé Le Pew?” game with Olivia Wilde…


TV: The Café

My new favorite show is The Café, a quirky, picturesque British sitcom set in a small seaside town. Kathryn Williams’ pretty, airy cover of “Beyond the Sea” serves as the series’ theme song and sets the tone of this sweet, funny and very charming little show. I’ve been watching The Café on my local PBS affiliate on Saturday mornings at 11a.m. EST, but it seems to bounce around the schedule so check your local tv listings and catch it when you can.

Tyler Hilton: Forget The Storm

Forget The Storm is singer-songwriter (and actor) Tyler Hilton’s third studio album and his first independent release on his own label, Hooptie Tune Records. Tyler himself said of the album, “The songs and sounds of Forget The Storm came together as a reaction to the major label system and the heartbreak it kept putting me through.” That heartbreak came after five years of working on another album (The Storms We Share) for major label Warner Bros. only for the songs to gather dust. Tyler left the label when it became obvious the album would never see the light of day and started on a fresh batch of songs, the title Forget The Storm the only reference to the album that never was.

Tyler’s appearances on the final season of One Tree Hill successfully drew my attention to his new album, Forget The Storm. Unfortunately, Chris Keller’s (Tyler’s OTH alter ego) heartfelt acoustic performance of “Prince of Nothing Charming” and rowdy bluesy rock rendition of “Loaded Gun” led to disappointment when I first heard the more polished pop versions on the album.

Once those overblown expectations faded, though, I was able to enjoy and appreciate the album for what it is. It’s a very catchy pop album with a few pretty ballads and a couple of strong rock tracks.

Tyler is best known for laidback, singer-songwriter ballads and this album has it’s share of those, but the best tracks are those in which he fully embraces blues and rock – such as “Loaded Gun” and “Ain’t No Fooling Me.”

There’s a dusky warmth to Tyler’s voice and melodies that occasionally hint at early Ryan Adams, but the slick production pushes most of Forget The Storm into the pop genre. It’ll be a good summer road trip album.
