Good TVeets

More TCA tweets, again mostly chronological starting from below following the jump.

tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Theme of HBO session before it even begins, as always, is "F--k you. We're HBO." #tca

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
I'm very excited to see some of these HBO series in detail. I am not excited at all to still be in this ballroom. Oh, well, only 8 more days

amberatmetro Amber M. Ray
Lots of modern reality TV bashing going on during this "Cinema Verite" panel. They must not have ever seen "Top Chef." #Love #HBO #TCA




midwestspitfire Libby Hill
@tvoti is going to introduce himself for Marilu Henner just so she'll always remember him. What a douche. #tca

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
I doubt you can picture this, but Samuel L. Jackson, on satellite, is wearing a Kangol hat. #tca
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Every time Tommy Lee Jones starts to speak, I think he's going to come and hit one of us in the face. #tca
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Samuel L. Jackson calls Tommy Lee Jones "TL." Which makes you wonder if he's "SL." After the HBO sandwiches, I am "XL."

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
First 15 mins of this panel is TL talking about how the camera moves around a room. I am so incredibly ready to fall on the ground and sleep
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Too Big To Fail based on 2008 economic collapse. And the book. It's not in any way about Oprah. #ohnoyoudidnt
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Room still very flat. HBO must be thinking, "What in the hell happened to these critics?" I'll tell you what happened. Oprah happened.

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
The breakout star of HBO's "Too Big To Fail" is Paul Giamatti's closely cropped white beard. #tca
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
@HitFixDaniel HBO is really beard central this spring. It's a programming slate aimed entirely at you.
LaceyVRose Lacey Rose
HBO's adaptation of 'Too Big To Fail' looks like 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.' Except good.
weinmanj Jaime Weinman
Trying to think of tag lines for Game of Thrones. "It's the most dangerous game of all... of thrones!"
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
A surprisingly sedate Game of Thrones session. I thought this room was too nerdy for this many lulls.

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Oprah hangover in the room. Someone ask George R.R. Martin about his dreams.

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
I'll write my reactions to the 15-minute "Game of Thrones" teaser reel a little later, I suspect. #tca
MattMitovich Matt Mitovich
@HitFixDaniel How did it compare to Oprah's 15-minute "Queen On Throne" teaser?
BillBriouxTV Bill Brioux
Huh--HBO's "Game of Thrones" has nothing to do with the Canadian Junior men's hockey team. That would be "Thrown Games" #TCA
JenniferArrow Jennifer Arrow
From this angle, George Martin looks a leeetle like a Tolkeinian dwarf. He is wicked smart/I like to listen to him talk. #gameofthrones

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"I'll sell you my copy." Tim Robbins on how rare it is to find "An American Family."
franklinavenue Michael Schneider
Reality TV began as intellectual exercise with "An American Family" but "turned to such shit" says James Gandolfini (who's in the HBO movie)
KateAurthur Kate Aurthur
James Gandolfini on Loud Family movie panel: has "seen Real Housewives of Atlanta -- that was extraordinary." Jersey Shore? "No no no." #TCA

PeeWee just made a joke about doing a cameo on #Hung. I have so many inappropriate jokes now. #hbo
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Reubens/Pee-Wee giving sincere answers to certain questions but then making weird faces while he listens to the next question.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
Oh good. An in-character press conference. Via satellite. Normally? Disaster. Today? Pee-Wee Herman. #tca
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"Film, schmilm. I'm telling you... Television is so much harder." - Kate Winslet's Emmy campaign begins. #tca
JenniferArrow Jennifer Arrow
HOLY CRAP someone who produced a TV series actually says he WATCHES and LOVES television. Thank you Todd Haynes.#mildredpierce #hbo
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
I wonder if the TV Academy has already given Kate Winslet her "Mildred Pierce" Emmy, or if they're waiting respectfully.
weinmanj Jaime Weinman
Most of the news coming out of #TCA is kind of boring. #truism
TVMcGee Ryan McGee
Hey now! RT @moryan "Frankly it's bigger here" Torchwood's RTD says of coming to America.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Critic asked if there's a gay gladiator. "There was a gay gladiator last season" Lucy Lawless said. Wait, just one? Are you sure?
Zap2itRick Rick Porter
Starz session at #tca is packed. How times change - 3 years ago no way the room is this crowded.
TVMcGee Ryan McGee
I'd love to see Batiatus and Al Swearengen engage in a "vile yet poetic swear-off" session. #Spartacus #Deadwood
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
"Please take a frog. He has a flash drive." #sentencesthathaveneverbeenutteredbeforethisever #tca
TVMcGee Ryan McGee
Tomorrow's headline today: "Kiernan Shipka held hostage: 'You can't make us give her up!' cry defiant #TCA members"
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Kiernan Shipka just said, "I don't know if I have Bieber fever." THIS IS THE PINNACLE OF HUMAN EXISTENCE. #tca
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
Someone just mentioned Justin Bieber in the press room. Who are we??? #TCA #CTAM
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
Kiernan Shipka is killing it at #TCA. The entire room adores her.
shondarhimes shonda rhimes
Have TCA panel on Monday. Must find something to wear other than dirty sweats. Dirty sweats = good for writing, not good for press.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
@shondarhimes So long as you keep your answers under 17 minutes, we'll be happy with whatever you wear.
TheTVShowGirl Maggie Furlong
Marcia Gay Harden just said "devil sex bullshit." Still sounded classy.#tca
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
Heidi Klum is discussing boogers. Oprah would be proud.#thistweetisntsexist #tca

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
There's a mind-bleeding high-pitched, piercing sound killing us in the ballroom. Wait, no, it can't be....Oprah's Revenge!
theTVaddict Daniel the TV Addict
@BastardMachine Oprah's revenge will be when she buys the Hollywood Reporter with her pocket change and assigns you to cover 100% Reality TV

writerchica MariaElena Fernandez
Heidi Klum is on stage and there are bizarre beeping sounds happening. Was Nat Geo right? Are aliens taking over? #TCA

dloehr David J. Loehr
Is it bad that the "Southland" swag is more entertaining than the show? Just checking.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
I suspect Clea Duvall looks at Mireille Enos' career and goes, "Damn." #tca
LaceyVRose Lacey Rose
"I say read less, watch more TV," says Melissa Rivers. Adds Joan, "Tell 'em about your grandma, who said reading is the devil’s work."#TCA
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Joan has clearly heard about the #oprahfilibuster. "That's our new motto: 'You can't. You can't. You can't.'"
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
First crack of the day from @Joan_Rivers is at @Oprah's expense. "We're starting our own network. It's called Rent." #TCA #CTAM
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
First panel of the day: Joan & Melissa River's totally-authentic-seeming new WE reality show where they live together.
televisionary Jace Lacob
In the ballroom for the first #TCA presentation of the day. Bring on the Bloody Marys, please!
benfritz Ben Fritz
Apparently the makers of Men of a Certain Age decided to spice things up in season 2 by getting rid of that dramatic conceit "conflict"
HartHanson Hart Hanson
I've recently discovered that amongst actors I'm more famous for being a character on Veronica Mars than for my own life. This is AWESOME.

Re the EW cover on American Idol: I swear, Steven Tyler looks exactly like my aunt. Soul patch and all!

COLEMANICEWATER Coleman Collins
Dear media folks who worry that internet TV/Netflix/DVR will kill yr syndication bux: a third of America still doesn't have internet, and of that other two thirds, more than 50% probably prefer Chuck Lorre sitcom reruns to all other forms of entertainment. Moral? If you're worried, be Chuck Lorre. If you're not Chuck Lorre, you still might be okay, but don't push it.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
How awful must David E. Kelley's "Wonder Woman" pitch have been? Did he pitch Kathy Bates as Wonder Woman?

Spent today in Writer's room trying to come up with ways to make The Bachelor more degrading for women. hard to do, but we got there.

Guitar music is to the modern sitcom heartfelt climax as the synthesizer was to FULL HOUSE.

I love when I see something I own on a TV show. Cool, the Mentalists and I have the same waffle maker.
pkafka Peter Kafka
Annual obligatory tweet about confluence of ces + the porn show. Boobs, dudes. Silicon, silicone. Get it? Got it? Good!

Aseroff Andrew Seroff
Jersey Shore premiere draws 8.4 million viewers. It's like we've admitted we have a problem, but not going to do anything about it.

maskedscheduler masked scheduler
Ratings for #JERSEYSHORE premiere + #WINTERWIPEOUT reinforce my love of the TV audience and I'm not being facetious....I'm really not.

sutterink kurt sutter
i'm pitching a show to OWN. it's an anti-anger management series where i help frustrated writers through their pain by hurting small animals
