She blames an early exposure to The X-Files and the Must See TV era of NBC for her twin life-long loves of sci-fi and sitcoms. She’s not sure where her all-consuming love for all things British came from, but it led her to Doctor Who so she doesn’t complain. When she’s not watching copious amounts of television, Sabienna can be found obsessing over her favorite shows at her blog, i turned out tv.

Among his favorite shows are the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, Frasier, and Doctor Who. If there’s an expansive universe with a deeply ingrained mythology behind it, chances are Justin is a big fan. He looks deeply (sometimes too much) into the subtext of a story and can talk for hours (enthusiasm, right?) about the themes and ideas behind them. He also laughs way too hard at the jokes they print on the backs of Laffy Taffy wrappers.

His impossible dream is that “Twin Peaks” will one day be resurrected and pick up where it left off. Until then, he drowns his woes in anything remotely similar, from “Buffy” to “Lost” to “Pretty Little Liars.” This has not always been a good thing-cough, “Ringer”, cough- but now at least it can help pay the bills. Follow him on Twitter, if you dare, at @rip_mr_gordo and check out his day job at Kaleidoscope. ______________________________________________________________________ Courtney Vaudreuil COMING SOON Follow her on Twitter at @lavaudreuil. ______________________________________________________________________ Jocelyn W. Jocelyn, a Southern transplant to Philadelphia, was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. To sum up her obsession about television, she is reminded of something Homer Simpson once said “I was raised in front of the TV and I turned out TV.” Although not actually raised in front of the TV, she does hail from a family that loves a good show and looks forward to her weekly phone pow wows with her mom about the latest episode of “Boardwalk Empire.” If you stop by her apartment on a rainy weekend, she may subject you to an impromptu marathon of one of her favorite shows no longer on the air such as “Rome” or “The Wire.” Despite the convenience of Netflix and Hulu, she still loves to own her favorite shows on DVD so that she can listen to commentary and enjoy interactive features. Although passionate about television, she still loves a good non-fiction book and in a perfect world, finds a way to intersect the two. After watching “Rome,” she read four books on the Roman Empire and has three more to go. She loved “The Tudors” so much that she read five books on The Tudor Dynasty. ______________________________________________________________________ You can also find TV Equals on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Tumblr.
