by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 13th 2011 9:55AM
'Army Wives' Season 5 FinaleIt was time to say good-bye to 'Army Wives' (Sun., 9PM ET on Life) as Season 5 drew to a close Sunday night.

And it was also time for the characters to bid a sad farewell to life as they know it: The 23rd Airborne Division is being disbanded and Fort Marshall will be closed.

In 'Farewell to Arms,' Season 5 ended with an emotionally charged toast from Major General Michael Holden (Brian McNamara), who told the assembled guests at the ball that "The 23rd does not die with you Rather, it lives on through you. ... It is our legacy. Be proud of it."

Garden Gnomes and Severed Heads on the Series Premiere of 'The Protector' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 13th 2011 7:00AM
'The Protector' S01/E01It's hard being a working mom, especially when you're both a single mom and a police detective, as we discovered on the Series Premiere of 'The Protector' (Sun., 10PM ET on Life).

Gloria Sheppard (Ally Walker) is a divorced L.A. Homicide Detective who, with her two kids, has recently moved in with her brother. Gloria has a lot on her plate right now, and between juggling the demands of motherhood with solving serious crimes and catching the bad guys, she's a little busy.

However, Gloria's neighbors think she's got time to investigate a local crime spree, so they send over Katie Silvers to ask for help. As Gloria puts out the trash, a worried Katie reveals that "there have been several thefts in the neighborhood ... and some of us on the block thought you might be able to help."

What's been stolen? Gnomes. Garden gnomes. And that's just for starters. Katie tells an exasperated-looking Gloria that all kinds of lawn ornaments -- flamingos, geese -- have gone missing. Can Gloria help the worried homeowners?

by Alicia Roda, posted Jun 8th 2010 2:20PM
From the makers of 'Planet Earth,' BBC and Discovery Channel, comes 'Life,' an even closer and equally as fascinating look at our earth and the creatures that occupy it.

The footage captured for 'Life' is both breathtakingly beautiful and wildly informative. Accompanied by Oprah Winfrey's commanding narration, we're given a mind-blowing glimpse of nature -- including everything from real-life Nemos (clownfish) dutifully guarding their eggs to humpback whales in fierce battle over a female.

Samuel L. Jackson and Frogs on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted May 6th 2010 8:55PM
Samuel L. Jackosn and Frogs on 'Ellen'Sometimes, a simple change of voice can alter everything. Ellen DeGeneres is a big fan of the Discovery Channel series 'Life,' which is narrated by Oprah Winfrey. 'Life' is a nature documentary series that discusses all the major animal groups on Earth. But what would the show sound like if it was narrated by someone else?

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), DeGeneres presents an alternate version of the documentary with a voice-over by Samuel L. Jackson. You haven't truly lived until you've heard Jackson cursing and talking about bullfrogs. "That's a big [censored] frog," he says. "Look at that [censored] frog." It's fantastic.

TV Worth the Effort in 2010

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jan 6th 2010 12:07PM


Be warned - I'm starting the New Year with a cold. A cold that prevented me from properly introducing 2010 to my friend Stella Artois, and a cold that prevented me from enjoying my favourite Christmas gift - a trip to the big city to see the ballet - and it is a cold that is even now preventing me from breathing, speaking and sleeping peacefully.

Which basically means I am one cranky TV columnist.

My intention this week is to discuss the TV-related New Year's Resolution. For some it is a 'more-and-bigger' proposition, like my neighbours, who scoured the Boxing Day sales for a massive flat-screen to replace their large flat-screen. But for most of us, it is a 'less-and-better' motive that drives us to promise ourselves that this year we will watch only quality programming, and only for two hours a week, and only one night a week, because we'll join a book club, a gym, an internet dating service, whatever.

What I've been thinking about is this: what is good television?

All Kona wants for Festivus

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 11th 2009 1:01PM
sue sylvesterI finally, and with great difficulty got the tree up, I've somehow gotten roped into holding a cookie exchange at my house this weekend, and I have glitter in places where glitter should not be. What's that smell? It smells like Festivus to me. While the main thing I want this year is to just lie very, very still in a dark room for a week or so, this is a TV blog, so let's talk about what TV could do to make me happy!

  • Stop with the long hiatuses already! I don't get to see a new episode of V until March, and I'm being forced into leading a Glee-less existence until April. Give it up already! If you have 3 months between new episodes, it's a new season, why not call it that? You know what I have been doing for the past 11 weeks? Watching the first 11 episodes of Dexter. This week, I will be watching episode 12, and then the season will be over. It's efficient and satisfying. The networks need to get on board.

The voice of Oprah rules over all 'Life' on Earth

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:01PM
Oprah Winfrey (not the lizard) is narrating BBC's Life.Oprah Winfrey is all over the news these days as she fires up her new network and considers moving her talk show from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Now, we get to listen to her narrate the epic BBC nature series, Life. Subtitled by the BBC with, "The Definitive Exploration of the Adaptability and Diversity of Life on Earth," the eleven-part series examines evolution and the behaviors that animals devised to live, thrive and survive. Discovery Channel is bringing it your way in March after Oprah vocalizes a bit.

I know the BBC has done this sort of thing before. In fact, no one does it better. But this time around, they're using state-of-the-art high-definition filming techniques.

But why is Oprah necessary? I have nothing particularly against the woman. Despite her massive media pull, I manage to more or less steer clear of her estrogen fest. But, the BBC production comes pre-narrated with world-famous naturalist, Sir David Attenborough. Is over-dubbing necessary?

FX nabs Donal Logue for the lead in Terriers

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 30th 2009 1:02PM
Donal LogueI'm still not sold on that show title; Terriers makes me think of little dogs yipping and running around. But FX and Shawn Ryan created magic with The Shield, and Ted Griffin made Ocean's Eleven so much fun. So I'm really excited about the show. My excitement can even withstand the news that Donal Logue (Life) has been cast in the lead role of Terriers.

I've never connected with Logue. I thought Grounded for Life was mostly crap, and he wasn't as "amazing" as the critics told me he was going to be in Knights of Prosperity. He has done better in some of his dramatic work. Maybe I'm just bitter that the hype machine told me Knights was going to be the greatest sitcom of the last millennium, and the next.

Now that Chuck is saved, how about you watch it?

by Kona Gallagher, posted May 29th 2009 12:28PM
chuck me mondays chucktv.netDefying all odds and the writers' strike curse, Chuck has managed to snag a third season on NBC. So what now? Obviously, new episodes won't start airing until after the Winter Olympics, so fans and those associated with the show and NBC have a few months before they need to begin obsessively tracking the ratings. But that doesn't mean that fans are taking the summer off.

Chucktv.net
, a Chuck fansite, is hosting "Chuck Me Mondays," starting June 1st. They're inviting both current fans and those who are just wanting to know what all the Chuck fuss is about to watch the spy comedy as a group Monday nights at 9 PM. While you watch, you can comment on the episode right on their site, or on Twitter, with the objective being to make Chuck a trending topic on the micro-blogging site every Monday. They're starting with the pilot and working all the way up to the season 2 finale-- it's a crash-course in all things Chuck.
