Michael J. Fox Shows 'Back to the Future II' Nike MAGs Up for Auction (VIDEO)

Michael J. Fox, 'Late Show with David Letterman''Back to the Future Part II' featured all sorts of retro-futuristic cool gear like the self-lacing Nike MAGs Marty McFly wore. Now, in an effort to raise money for Parkinson's Research, the company is making 1,500 pairs of these shows available for auction, and Michael J. Fox brought a pair to 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

They look as awesome now as they did then, though Fox didn't wear them for us. Nor do they actually lace up by themselves, but it doesn't matter. As Fox indicated, auctioning the shoes are a great way to raise money because it taps into three different groups of people.

Michael J. Fox on 'Late Night'Life has provided Michael J. Fox with quite an education, he told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

"Economics I learned from being flat-ass broke. Physics I learned mostly from doing 'Back to the Future,'" he joked. "People always ask me about it. They think I'm an expert on time travel. They'll ask me about space/time continuum and I'll be like, 'Dude, it was a movie.'"

Watch the video after the jump.

Christopher Lloyd Will Be a Doc on 'Chuck'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 8th 2010 4:24PM
christopher_lloyd_deloreanThe February 8th episode of 'Chuck' will be the last until after the Olympics, so here's a bit a news that should keep all 'Chuck' devotees panting for the return. Christopher Lloyd will be guesting on 'Chuck' in the spring. He's playing a psychiatrist/therapist/shrink who Chuck consults with when the rigors of morphing into a spy starts to get to Agent Bartowski.

This will hopefully be a case of the right actor in the right role and the writers rise to the occasion to create something memorable. There's every reason to hope for big things because executive producer Josh Schwartz has admittedly being a geek when it comes to anything related to 'Back to the Future.' Having Doctor Emmett "Doc" Brown in the house should be an inspiration, don't you think?

Biff does stand up

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 21st 2009 1:02PM
Tom WilsonThomas F. Wilson is mostly known for his role as Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future movies, but he's also done a lot of television. His second most famous role is likely that of Coach Ben Fredericks on Freaks and Geeks, and he's done a lot of voice acting for various cartoons including The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.

Why bring all this up? Because he also does stand-up comedy and has a clip on YouTube that practically made me pee myself and potentially ruin a good office chair.

The Middleman: The Manicoid Teleportation Conundrum

by Paul Goebel, posted Jul 8th 2008 8:41AM

The Middleman and Wendy(S01E04) One thing that really pleases me about The Middleman is how the show walks the line between outrageous fantasy and realistic technology. While Lacey was rattling off all the places on the internet where Wendy's breakup could be seen, I was trying to catch something that sounded made up but it all seemed very reasonable, especially the girlfriend revenge site.

On the other hand, I wasn't too crazy about Dr. Gil. Clint Culp is a guy who I see quite often at auditions and he's very talented, but why would the writers do something as lame as a Dr. Phil parody? If the show were being produced 20 years ago would the character be named Alfredo Riviero or Horton Downer Sr?

In Plain Sight: High Priced Spread

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 7th 2008 9:20AM
Getty-McCormack(S01E06) I thought this was one of the best In Plain Sights so far. It wasn't the case, it was the character, in particular Mary's. We got major character development from the leading lady, the key to what she's all about and how she's come to where she is.

Episodes like this just make a show; they really do. In Plain Sight is about Witness Protection, yes, but it's more about Mary Shannon.

Mary doesn't go looking for this case, she's just bringing in her crap car for service. Her mechanic is Scott, who it turns out, was Mary's very first WITSEC client. Mary gave Scott and his 10-year-old brother, Chris, new lives after they witnessed a bookie murder another bookie.

Parenthetically, Scott invites Mary and Marshall to watch Chris play basketball at the university. The kid's got mad skills and is projected to be an NBA star, natch, but something's amiss. Chris is hitting up Mary for $3,000, which we learn is out of bounds for decade-long WITSEC clients.

The Office: Night Out - VIDEO

by Jay Black, posted Apr 25th 2008 12:19AM
Dwight is so money!(S04E11) Writing Office reviews for TV Squad has certain perils. For instance, if I write a negative review of an episode that the vast majority of our readership enjoyed, I am treated to dozens of emails asking me which kind of poop is it, exactly, that has replaced my brain (for the record, it's lhasa apso poop). When I complain to my wife about these comments -- I handle criticism about as well as Steve Martin's son from Parenthood -- she says I'd be better off just writing a positive review of every episode. For some reason, positive reviews don't seem to warrant the same vitriol as negative ones.

Now, while I might cheat on my taxes or steal from the elderly, I would never sell out my integrity when it comes to television blogging. If an episode is bad, I promise you I'll write a negative review. Unfortunately for my integrity, however, it doesn't seem like the producers of The Office plan on airing a bad episode any time soon...

Family Guy: Meet The Quagmires

the quagmires - family guy

(S05E18) And so ends a short, inconsistent, Family Guy season. I don't know if we should chalk it up to Seth MacFarlane being spread too thin with American Dad and The Winner to watch over, or just the show coming up on 100 episodes. Something just wasn't quite right at Family Guy HQ this season though.
