New TV blog

Perhaps bracing for a premature end to his team's baseball season, Dodger Thoughts' Jon Weisman has launched Screen Jam. I'll let him explain:

As readers of Dodger Thoughts may know, television, movies and pop culture in general often infiltrates the site. That's not necessarily a bad thing, not at all, but Screen Jam now gives me a formal place to explore those topics - though at the outset, the writing will be decidedly informal.

When Dodger Thoughts was born, it had only a couple of readers, so I was able to figure out what I wanted to do without much worry about how it would be perceived. Screen Jam will be discovered at least a bit more quickly, so I just want to warn you at the outset that it's still being developed. Posts may be short and sweet more often at first. There may be more stream of consciousness writing and less that is definitive. I don't want to censor myself too much at the outset - though of course, I'll try not to put up garbage either.

Early posts discuss "The Office," Anne Heche's vehicle "Men in Trees' and those "once a pleasure and pretty creepy" Audrey Hepburn ads for Gap.
