That's Rich: An Introduction...

at . Comments

Greetings, TV Fanatics.

My name is Matt Richenthal and many of you might think I'm an idiot know me from my reviews of such shows as Modern Family, House and The Vampire Diaries. This is my first official column and I figured I'd start off the feature with a basic introduction.

This is Rich

I'm six feet tall, I'm a huge New York Yankees fan, I'm recently married and I believe...

... Grey's Anatomy was ruined forever when Izzie had sex with a ghost. Sorry, no amount of impressively-acted PTSD scenes from Sandra Oh will change my mind.

... a show with nothing but Coach Eric Taylor and Tami Taylor sitting around the dinner table would be better than 97% of what's on network television.

... the final two seasons of Heroes will haunt me forever.

... The Shield is the best show of all-time.

... Gwyneth Paltrow should guest star on every episode of Glee.

... Mad Men is often boring. Yes, I said it.

... the scene on Seinfeld when Kramer gets fired from the job he doesn't actually have might be the funniest 30 seconds in TV history.

... although any half-minute from the episode of The Office where Michael Scott burns his foot on a George Foreman grill might rival it.

... I have to re-watch season two of Sons of Anarchy and season three of Breaking Bad one of these weeks. Both are fantastic.

... I might finally be getting over the death of Scott Scanlon.

... The Good Wife is underselling itself with its choice of adjectives.

... Terriers was given a fair shot by FX. But that doesn't mean I have to be happy it's out of my life.

... Damon Salvatore makes it really tough on the rest of us males.

Trust me, I have many other opinions. You'll be hearing plenty of them in this space and across the site in general. I always welcome feedback at and/or in the Comments section below. Thanks for reading!
