    School's Out: Seven R-Rated "Hot For Teacher" Songs

    Another school year has passed, and now all that's left for departing students to cherish are the sweet memories of Friday night football, prom and the loin-burning, unrequited, forbidden lust for their smoking-hot teachers.

    The 10 Best Food-Centric TV Episodes on Netflix, For Your Post-Thanksgiving Food Coma

    Before I had cable, I invested in Netflix's streaming video service. It continues to be the best $7 I spend each month, despite the service's recent, public misadventures.

    Top Chef: Texas - Let the Games Begin

    Stirred & Shaken: Reserve 101's Hemingway

    Troy Fields​At one end of the specialty cocktail list at Reserve 101 (1201 Caroline, 713-655-7101), there's a drink called a Hemingway, and at the other end, a drink called a Bubble Gum Martini.

    NBC's Thursday Night: She's The Ark Of The Covenant!

    The role of a lifetime.​Sometimes TV shows are forced to interact with each other in crossovers or network-wide branding initiatives like NBC's Green Is Universal (itself parodied on 30 Rock).

    Upcoming Texas Twists on 30 Rock

    Regular readers may be aware that Rocks Off has become somewhat obsessed with NBC's 30 Rock lately. Actually, that's not true.

    Will the Texan 30 Rock Writer Please Get in Touch?

    This is starting to mess with Rocks Off's head just a little. Last week's Janis-Joplin-movie subplot made him wonder, because it was hardly the first time Southeast Texas was used as a punchline, but now he's sure there's some sort of subversive Lone Star conspiracy afoot behind the scenes  ...

    30 Rock Takes Another Little Piece of Port Arthur

    One of the only things Rocks Off loves as much as Tom Petty and chicken-fried steak is NBC's brilliant, multiple Emmy-winning 30 Rock, which he thinks is the best TV comedy since The Larry Sanders Show.
