Kiefer SutherlandKiefer Sutherland is officially returning to TV. Fox has ordered 13 episodes of 'Touch,' a new drama starring Sutherland from 'Heroes' creator Tim Kring.

"'Touch' is another ambitious series from Tim Kring that is beautifully executed and has incredibly resonant themes for our times," Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox, said in a statement. "With Kiefer back on the network as the face and force behind this creative new series, I'm confident it will resonate with viewers this spring."

Kring wrote the pilot and will serve as executive producer on the series.

Sutherland stars as Martin Bohm, a widower and single father who struggled to connect with his mute son, Jake (David Mazouz). 'Undercovers' star Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Clea Hopkins, a social worker who is sent to evaluate Jake's well-being. Soon Martin discovers Jake can see patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events and communicates with numbers. Danny Glover co-stars as Arthur Dewitt, a professor and expert about children who have special gifts with numbers.

'Community' - 'Basic Genealogy' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 12th 2010 12:39PM
Katharine McPhee & Joel McHale, 'Community'
(S01E18)
Joel Mchale caught a McPheever this week when Katharine McPhee guest-starred as Amber, a hot chick on campus. The format of 'Community' makes it so easy to drop in guest stars, and yet they didn't just make McPhee simply another student. Instead, we got a "Family Day" event where everybody got to bring in members of their family.

On 'American Idol,' where she came in second to Taylor Hicks, McPhee always touted herself as a singer-actress, so I was looking forward to seeing what skills she would bring to the set. While she wasn't given a very challenging role in Amber, she proved that she could hang with the big boys without sticking out like a sore thumb, so I'll give her kudos for that.

It was a blast seeing Shirley's kids again, as well as Abed's dad. Troy's grandmother, on the other hand ... I don't even know what to say. That mean old relative is a sitcom staple, but still this on went in a very disturbing direction. "I don't understand you, Britta!" Troy shouted to her at one point, and I'm right there with him.

'Human Target': Thrills, Spills and Mark Valley (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 18th 2010 4:10AM
Human Target, Mark ValleyDid you watch the premiere of 'Human Target' last night? It's jam-packed with kick-ass action, cool guest stars, and a lightning-fast bullet train. It's like James Bond, 'The A-Team,' and a Bruce Willis movie all rolled into one.

Based on a DC Comics comic book and graphic novel, the Fox show stars Mark Valley as adrenaline junkie Christopher Chance, a unique bodyguard/private detective who thwarts murder attempts by impersonating the intended victims in order to draw the killers' fire.

Review: Community - Home Economics

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 6th 2009 1:28AM
Danny Pudi(S01E08) Well, that ending was disappointing, wasn't it? Spoiler alert: the gag over the closing credits did not feature Abed and Troy. What were they thinking? Those were some of the funniest moments of the first seven episodes!

It was about time we saw the financial repercussions of Jeff having lost his license to practice law. There's a lifestyle that comes with being a big-shot lawyer, and it's not at all the same lifestyle of your typical college student. That's Abed's life, and we got to see that, as well.

Meanwhile, Annie tries and tries and tries to muster up the courage to talk to Troy about her feelings. The problem is, I think she's expecting him to put two and two together as long as she drops enough hints. But it doesn't look like math is one of Troy's strong suits. Or thinking, for that matter.

Brothers and Sisters: Separation Anxiety

brothers and sisters 042008(S02E15) "I'm leaving to get away from all of you!" - Nora Walker to her darling children, about moving to Washington D.C. with Isaac.

Sometimes what I actually want to review is the scenes for next week's show, because it seems more interesting than the one I just watched. However, I know that many of you deliberately do not watch those clips, so we shall say no more on the subject. I am glad the Walkers are back, and I like how they have handled the time off due to the strike: they simply said, "Three months later," and picked up with events then.

Before that jump, though, we learned some important things: That Graham and Sarah are still dating, that Tommy and Julia are still happily together, and that Senator Robert McCallister loses the Republican Party's nomination for the Presidency, so Robert returns to the Senate.

Brothers and Sisters: Compromises

Scotty(S02E14) "Do you think I'm uptight?" Kevin Walker to Sarah Walker.

"Yes." Sarah Walker to Kevin Walker

This was an immensely likable episode. If you have read my reviews from Season One in particular, you know that I tend to distinguish the episodes I like from the episodes I *really* like based on who wrote them. This episode was co-written by Cliff Olin, son of Patricia Wettig (Holly) and Ken Olin (David Caplan). Cliff has been writing for the show since its inception, and he is a young writer, barely in his mid-twenties. I have noticed an unevenness in his writings in past episodes, but I think he is finally starting to hit his stride.

Brothers and Sisters: The Missionary Imposition

Brothers and Sisters cast
(S02E11) "You're the translator?" Sarah Walker to Graham Finch

This episode was, at its heart, about trust: How do you figure out whether or not you can trust people? And once you have broken someone's trust, how do you (and should you) get it back? Lena has been at the heart of broken trust issues for awhile now, and she has sort of become the symbol of betrayal on the show. But Rebecca, Justin, and Sarah have all had their issues with trust as well--and everyone (except Sarah, really) has certainly been guilty of giving (betrayal) just as good as they get.

(S02E10) "You slept with someone else too?" Nora Walker to Julia Walker

Oh, Brothers and Sisters, how I've missed your hijinx! I was under the impression from some of the news I'd read about the WGA strike that filming had ceased on the show, so I was very happy to have a new episode (albeit, feeling a little guilty, because I support the writers...). Mostly, I was happy to see everyone again.

Brothers and Sisters: Holy Matrimony!

(S02E09) "We could wake up tomorrow, and it could all go to hell."-- Robert McAllister

I have to admit: I would have owed Tommy $100. But not for the same reasons as Kevin and Justin. I will get to that in a bit though. Was it just me, or did this episode have some editing glitches? One minute Kitty is telling Robert that it's bad luck to sleep with the groom on the night before the wedding and Justin and Lena seem to be talking about the wedding being that day, and then Kitty is in the Walker kitchen working on her vows and the wedding is still a day away. Anyway, it wasn't a big deal-- it just seemed a little incongruous for a bit.

Brothers and Sisters: Two Places

Robert and Isaac(S02E06) "I didn't want this baby."-- Robert McAllister

I am starting to regret every time I have criticized the show for being too prone to hijinks and slapstick, because after the past two episodes, I would love to have Robert's crazy family show up again so they can all jump into the pool. The best way to describe this episode is maudlin. No wonder Justin is taking more pain meds. This is some pretty depressing stuff, and it doesn't look like it's going to get happier anytime soon. Is this the writers' way of dealing with the impending strike? A little doom and gloom for everyone? And is Tommy growing a mustache, and could someone please call his agent and tell him to shave it?
