Plane survivors Vs. the Others

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 30th 2007 6:02PM
LostWhen Lost premiered, fans didn't have to decide who they liked best between the plane survivors and the Others as when the latter were first mentioned, it was clear they were the bad guys. Things got confirmed when Ethan was found out and when we witnessed the boat scene at the end of the Season 1 finale.

Have things changed since then? Do we still think the famous Others are so bad? When new episodes air, do we pray to see more scenes in Othersville or at the beach? Do we root for Juliet or Kate to get Jack? That may be another issue, but it's sill a plane survivor versus an Other.

The Great American Dream Vote is already a goner

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 29th 2007 7:51PM
donny osmondHey, here's a shocker: The Great American Dream Vote has dismal ratings. So bad, in fact, that ABC yanked it off the schedule after airing only two episodes. Donny Osmond was the host of the sick game show that had people come on television and tell their sob story and beg to have their dream come true. Even the promos for the show made it sound demented and wrong. Last night's episode came in dead last behind fourth place Friday Night Lights on NBC. Instead, ABC will fill the Wednesday 8 pm time slot with episodes of George Lopez.

While we may never know whose dream comes true, I can tell you that mine has.

ABC moves Underbelly out of Idol's path

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 29th 2007 7:12PM
notes from the underbellyABC is cowering in fear. Ok, all of the networks are (rightfully) cowering in fear from the ratings behemoth that is American Idol. This time it's the new comedy, Notes From the Underbelly, that is being shifted to stay out of Ryan Seacrest's path.

The comedy, about a couple expecting a baby and dodging crazy advice from friends and family, has been moved from Wednesdays at 9:30 pm to Thursdays at 10 pm after Grey's Anatomy. The move is in response to Idol's announcement this week that it will expand its results shows to one hour, starting April 11th. Now, Notes From the Underbelly will premiere with back-to-back episodes on April 12th instead of April 11th.

Giving a comedy the 10 pm time slot, even if its lead-in is Grey's Anatomy, is a terrible idea. From the promos, it does not look like a prime time show. Let's face it: ten o'clock is the hour for sex and violence. Underbelly looks like it belongs in the 8 o'clock hour (or not on television at all, if you ask Joel).

Lost death pool update: week eight

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 29th 2007 5:21PM

Yunjin Kim and Josh HollowayWell, well, well. "Exposé" was a busy episode for the grim reaper. As usual, I will leave the details for after the jump, so stop reading if you have not seen the newest episode. Many players have shot ahead in the pool, and a few of you have used up all of your picks already. Impressive.

I should mention that there have been rumors that a character who was presumed dead may show up alive in a later episode. For any death pool standings to change, this "resurrection" will have to occur onscreen during Season Three. The character will have to be seen alive, in real time.

Now let's get to the updated standings!

Lost: Expos

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 28th 2007 11:58PM

Rodrigo Santoro and Kiele Sanchez

(S03E14) Well, "The Man From Tallahassee" was a tough act to follow, and it is probably unfair to compare the two episodes. This episode had its moments--shirtless Sawyer, double-crosses, and guest star Billy Dee Williams. Nikki and Paulo's story needed to be told, and I think that the writers accomplished what they set out to do. I might have to watch "Exposé" again before I can make a complete assessment.

A closer look at Lost's philosophers

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 28th 2007 7:47PM

Henry Ian CusickMany Lost fans are familiar with the show's frequent use of philosophers' names. USA Today has a very helpful rundown of all the philosophers used so far, as well as a character-based analysis of each one. A lot of the information might be review for devoted fans, but the article includes an "expert comment" section with some unique interpretations of the characters.

John Locke: The fictional John Locke describes himself as a man of faith. The real Locke was more of a man of science. USA Today's expert mentions that Locke the philosopher believed that "action is based on experiences," and that the show's flashbacks demonstrate that view.

The Grey's Anatomy spin-off gets a working title

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 28th 2007 7:19PM
Kate WalshThe much anticipated Grey's Anatomy spin-off got a working title. BuddyTV.com reveals the the Addison-centric show will be titled Private Practice. The title, revealed by ABC during a media buyers event, is quite fitting the new series as Private Practice will revolve around various doctors, including Addison, working at a wellness center in Los Angeles. ABC says that the title is not set in stone (it's a working title) and they could change it at any time.

Even if ABC is advertising episodes 3.22 and 3.23 of Grey's Anatomy as "the potential Addison spin-off," it is almost a given that it will become a series on its own as it will surely attract many viewers not only because it's a Grey's spin-off but also because of its cast: Kate Walsh, Tim Daly, Taye Diggs, Merrin Dungey, Amy Brenneman, Paul Adelstein and Chris Lowell. Yes, some of these have been part of many series that have failed to get renewals (Diggs was part of ABC's Day Break, and Daly was the lead of Eyes and The Nine), but all should help attract viewers.

The two-hour spin-off episode will air in May.

Behind the scenes with Lost producer Jack Bender

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 28th 2007 6:40PM

Terry O'QuinnWizard Entertainment recently published an interview with Lost director-producer Jack Bender, who directed last week's episode "The Man From Tallahassee." Bender discusses the inspiration for the show's visual elements, and goes into detail about the filming of several popular episodes. The complete interview features tons of technical information, but here are the most relevant highlights:

  • The Lost pilot was the most expensive television pilot ever made.
  • Bender thinks that the show is more about the characters' internal "monsters" than the monsters that exist on the island.

More folks join new pilots

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 28th 2007 4:03PM

tvSorry, gang, I've been away for awhile so everyone stand back while I dump a big pile of casting news all over the floor (try not to get any on you):

John Michael Higgins will star in the new ABC comedy pilot The Thick of It, and by "new" I mean it's yet another remake of a British sitcom. It's being helmed by Arrested Development creator and will also star Oliver Platt, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) and Michael McKean. The pilot is being directed by Christopher Guest.

Also, on ABC, Mark Moses of Desperate Housewives has joined a comedy pilot as a senator whose daughter (Michelle Trachtenberg) falls in love with a staff member (Eric Christian Olsen) of his rival.
