'The Young and the Restless' Takes A Bizarro Turn

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 13th 2010 1:01PM
tracey_bregman_young_and_the_restlessLast Friday on 'The Young and the Restless,' the big reveal -- other than Adam being dead and everyone at the Genoa City Athletic Club was a suspect -- was that the person who had abducted Lauren and locked her in a cage was... Lauren!

What? Okay, it wasn't really Lauren. It was somebody who looked just like Lauren. But who the hell was she? We were left to wonder in our TV Squad weekly recap.

The first guess was that somehow, some way, the Lauren look-alike was Sheila Carter. Even though Sheila, Lauren's arch enemy, is dead... or she's supposed to be dead... could it be that she's not dead? Well, no, no, no. That's not it. 'Y&R' wouldn't stoop to that plot device. At least not this time.

Spaced: The Complete Series - DVD Review

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 2nd 2008 10:01AM
Spaced: The Complete SeriesSometimes television shows come along that completely change the industry. Spaced is one of those shows. Broadcast on Britain's Channel 4 from 1999 to 2001, it used geeky pop culture references, non sequitur scene injections, flashbacks and other common television practices nowadays way back when it wasn't cool to do so. In that respect, it's a combination of The Big Bang Theory and Arrested Development long before either existed.

When co-creators and co-stars Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson (now Jessica Hynes) created the main characters Tim and Daisy, they created characters that every nerdy person could relate to.

The show does cater to a very specific audience and it's the sort of audience that tends to be the most loyal, even obsessively so. Nobody is particularly super-handsome and the characters are very niche. Also, the show doesn't really talk down to the audience and makes the viewer feel like part of the conversation. This is unlike, say, Arrested Development which tends to be a bit pretentious (sorry to all you Arrested Development fans).

No, seriously, do you want to buy that Dukes of Hazzard car?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2007 2:18PM

General LeeAdam mentioned last week that the person who put it the $10 million winning bid for the General Lee car on eBay didn't pay up. In fact, it now looks like that someone's eBay account was hacked and he wasn't even the one doing the bidding, it was someone else.

But now the car is for sale again on eBay, only this time you have to go through a strict qualification process before you can even bid on the car. No more phonies.

I don't really get this whole story. The car being auctioned, owned by former star John Schneider, wasn't even used on the show! Which is interesting, because they used over 300 different General Lees on the show. It's just an extra one. Sure, it's signed by the cast, but is that really worth $10 million (or even $5 million or $1 million)?
