TV Geek Out 53: 30 Rock, "Christmas Special"

Yes, the 12 days of Christmas are long over, but there's always room for a little holiday spirit anytime of year, right? Especially when that spirit is as funny and touching as this episode of 30 Rock: Elaine Stritch was hilarious as usual as Jack's mother Colleen, Jenna sang, and Liz learned that she should stop being such a Cranky Sue about Christmas. TV Geek Out is the house with its holiday decorations still up in mid-January, but we don't mind a bit when it offers another chance to geek out about 30 Rock.

TV Geek Out 52: Lost, Season 4 Geek Out Review pt. 2

Are you as excited as we are for Lost's return?! Even though the TV Geek Out geeks only had time to rewatch the season 4 finale ("There's No Place Like Home") before geeking our hearts out about the season as a whole, we pooled our collective brain cells, focused on our constants, and managed to piece everything together. We also rave about season 4's brilliant structure and performances and shout out to some other works of art that share Lost's fondness for folding, spindling and mutilating the fabric of time. Perry, Dana and Heather turn the frozen donkey wheel and geek out about "Meet Kevin Johnson" to "There's No Place Like Home."

TV Geek Out 50: Fringe, "The Dreamscape"

Woo hoo! TV Geek Out's 50th episode finds Dana and Heather geeking out about yet another amazing episode of Fringe. Not only did "The Dreamscape" provide completely new chills and thrills -- who knew butterflies could be so terrifying? -- it also delivered plenty of suspense and plot development. Olivia's dip in the tank to purge her mind of John Scott's memories got her almost literally in over her head, and Peter's visit from an old flame was more unsettling than nostalgic. Heather and Dana lick some toads, then commence geeking out.
