Tonight on TV: Our Town Hudson

The Our Town series on WMHT (PBS) takes a look at our own, Hudson tonight.  ‘Our Town’ is a video scrapbook of communities in New York’s Capital Region and Western New England as seen through the eyes and camera lenses of the people who live there. Back in April, The ‘Our Town’ producers  interviewed 27 participants for tonight’s program at the Hudson Opera House. You can see the results tonight on WMHT at 7:30 PM.


Why I Love The CW15 in The Morning

Overheard the following Thor conversation this morning on the CW 15  (Albany) news:

News Lady: “I don’t get this Thor thing”. 

News Guy: “He is the god of thunder and used to be one of the big Marvel characters with Spider-Man and Captain America”.

Weather Guy: “Was he made out of rocks”?

At that point you could see the look of extreme disappointment in News Guy’s eyes.

Say Goodbye to Ugly Betty with a Look at Some of the Stylish Sets

This week marked the end of the TV series, Ugly Betty, with the final episode airing on Wednesday (April 14, 2010).

This week marked the end of the TV series, Ugly Betty, with the final episode airing on Wednesday (April 14, 2010). I’m really going to miss this show and not just because of the amazing cast portraying some of the most original, creative and hilarious characters to ever appear on tv. I’m also going to miss the beautiful, over-the-top, and inspiring sets! Take a look at some of the different sets frequently used.

Up first is the hallway at Mode Magazine. This set was in every episode and the items on the shelfs lining the walls changed just about every week. In this past Wednesday’s finale, the shelfs were packed with detailed figures that I’m guessing represented real people involved with the show.

Up next is a shot of one of the offices. Most of the offices went through frequent looks and changed season to season.

Finally, my favorite set was always Wilhelmina Slater’s apartment. As someone who has lived in NYC (the show’s location) I can’t even imagine what the rent would be on an apartment of this size.
