If television controls you, then TVOvermind is the place for you. Our staff of writers provide you with the best in TV news, celebrity interviews, recaps, and opinion columns on all of your favorite (and not so favorite) shows. In addition, we provide discussion forums for you, our readers, to discuss and share with us your thoughts and comments on your favorite shows. It also allows you the opportunity to be involved in a great community of friends who love (and sometimes hate) the same shows as you.
TVOvermind was launched in January of 2009. We are committed to bringing you no more or less than our unique perspective and passionate views about what we watch. We will not be influence by free t-shirts, coffee mugs, or DVDs of upcoming episodes of the shows we love. We'll still take all of those things, it just won't affect how we write!
If you represent a network and would like to offer us interviews, screeners, or other such press materials, we can both be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If mailing screeners, please send to both addresses below to ensure both of us recieve it.
Meet the Team
Jon is a former bill collector and skip-tracer who - luckily enough for the debtors of the world - abandoned his dead-beat safari lifestyle for the world of writing nearly six years ago. Jon created such blogs as TheTailsection and TheLostExperience before becoming a traffic strategies coordinator and a senior writer on BuddyTV's editorial team. Jon's work has appeared on UGO.com, CraveOnline, SeattlePI, The California Chronicle, and has been quoted in Entertainment Weekly, TVGuide, E!, Zap2it, and many others. His book, co-written with Amy J. Johnston, 'LOST Ate My Life' made a surprise appearance in the LOST writer's room during a video podcast. He can be found ruminating on LOST at www.docarzt.com. Jon is married with four children, two cornish rex cats, and a couple of miserable hounds.

Julia Thorne - When she's not watching television (a.k.a. procrastinating), Julia Thorne is an undergraduate pre-law student in Reno, NV. Yes, that *other* place with the hookers and gambling. She's pursuing a law degree because she thinks it will make her sound more intelligent at cocktail parties. She enjoys such television delights as Supernatural, House, 24, Bones, Dexter, Chuck, Heroes, Lost, The Tudors, Weeds, Burn Notice, and her dearly departed Alias.
Deidre (Featherlite) - Deidre Gould is a Canadian writer who'll be finishing UCLA's screenwriting program in December 2009. When she isn't watching procedural crime dramas, Deidre wonders when she became a sci-fi geek and how she can overcome her addiction to SPACE channel. In addition to contributing articles to TVOvermind, Deidre just finished recapping the fourth season of "Bones" and will be busy working on "Fringe" and "V" for the new 2009-2010 season.
Dawn (RavenRants) - Austin, Texas likes to "Keep it Weird," which is probably why Dawn's made it her home sweet home for the last six years. When she isn't working for a little start-up that could, she's building sets and balancing spreadsheets for a small, independent theatre company. The rest of the time is spent obsessing over such weighty matters as which shows to watch and which to record and does she really want to read those spoilers, or be surprised when [REDACTED FOR SPOILERS]. If it's sci-fi, has explosions, involves time travel and/or things that goes bump in the night, she's probably watching it or wishing she could.
