'Jersey Shore' Cast Heading Back to NJ for End of Season Two

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 9th 2010 11:26AM
Jersey ShoreIt is with a heavy heart that I write the following: the cast of MTV's 'Jersey Shore' will be returning to New Jersey (my home, incidentally) to film the remaining segments of the second season of that monstrosity. Fans of the show get to watch Snooki and the rest of them frolic in debauchery for the last part of the season from the actual Jersey Shore rather than the beaches of Miami which sadly decided not to keep them.

A casting notice was also put up for additions to the cast. It's sort of like the second season of 'The Transformers' cartoon in which a bunch of new robots were added to the cast in an effort to sell more action figures.

In this case, the casting notice is likely just in case the existing cast decides to move on to bigger and better projects, like 'Celebrity Apprentice' or the next generation of 'Fear Factor.'

'Jersey Shore' Sets Up Shop in Miami

Jersey ShoreMuch to the chagrin of many South Beach denizens, it seems as though Snooki and her pack of 'Jersey Shore' poseurs are flying south for the summer.

Although yet to be confirmed by MTV, reports reveal that the second season of the fan fave will find the cast mates living large in a South Beach house that, natch, is being renovated to the nines before shooting starts later this month.

The show was renewed back in January under a 12-episode order, following lengthy negotiations between MTV and its stars. Season 2 is tentatively scheduled to air at the end of the summer, according to the Live Feed.

'Burn Notice' Gets a New Regular Cast Member

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 9th 2010 2:16PM
Burn Notice'Burn Notice' just ended its third season and now comes word that they're adding a new regular character to mix with Michael, Fiona, Sam, and Madeline.

Coby Bell, who had regular roles on such shows as 'Third Watch,' 'The Game,' and 'L.A. Doctors' (no, I don't remember that 1999 show, though it sounds like something that should have been a hint, doesn't it?) will join the cast as Jesse Garcia.

The Hollywood Reporter describes the character as "a cocky and sarcastic counterintelligence expert with a chameleon-like ability to assume different cover identities and an intense desire to see bad guys punished.' Wait, that sounds a lot like Michael! He finds himself in Miami, too, and hooks up with the gang for what I'm assuming will be lots of action.

If you wonder where the excitement is in entertainment, you're probably not watching 'Burn Notice.' However, if you're reading this review, you probably are a watcher and you have just gorged yourself on what was mostly called a season finale.

In some ways, it was a typical 'Burn Notice' finale, leaving Michael in a seemingly puzzling situation. This was ranked up there with one of the more intriguing ones. It was everything creator Matt Nix promised it would be. More on that, the client named Simon, and how to hot-wire a jet ski after the jump.

How'd You Like To See A 'Burn Notice'/'White Collar' Crossover Episode?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 5:30PM
Burn NoticeTV viewers often have "I wonder what would happen if ______ and ______ had a crossover episode?" fantasy. There have been many crossovers, of course. Everything from Jessica Fletcher appearing on 'Magnum, P.I.' to The Green Hornet and Kato appearing on 'Batman' and the recent crossovers we saw on all of the 'CSI' shows. Now 'White Collar' creator Jeff Eastin is talking about a crossover with another USA Network show.

In this conference call with TV critics, Eastin mentions that he'd love to do a crossover episode with 'Burn Notice.' He's friends with 'Burn Notice' creator Matt Nix and they've joked about it, but he might bring it up to USA for the second season (the season finale of 'White Collar' airs next Tuesday).

'Burn Notice' - 'Enemies Closer' Recap

There was a lot of action involving running and shooting and a bomb exploding in this installment of 'Burn Notice,' but overall it felt a bit like a been-there-done-that episode. Was it pedestrian or were the principals not interesting enough to keep up with the usual Michael-Fiona-Sam shenanigans? More on that and the excellent work by a lowly CSI tech named Finley, after the jump.

Review: 'Burn Notice' - 'Noble Causes'

Does Michael Weston work and play well with others? Umm, not really. He prefers being at the controls and calling the shots. Have you noticed that with Fiona and Sam, Michael is usually the de facto lead? And remember how he disliked working for Carla? Hence this relationship with Gilroy is problematic to say the least. This week was an example of just how difficult it's likely to be.

For a nice change of pace, Burn Notice played up the local color. Lots of Little Dominica (not Little Havana) and action, including multiple explosions, a little face-forward repelling and a new somewhat mystical character for Michael to play. No Southern boy this week. No tank tops or muscle shirts. Nope. Michael was looking like Mr. Applegate, the devil in the musical Damn Yankees.

"People get hurt and things get complicated no matter what you do." - Fiona

Welcome back, Burn Notice. We've missed you. The story picked up a day or two after the resolution of the Strickler thing, with Fiona still on the mend and Michael more than a little miffed by the missed opportunity to get back in the spy game. And if sore feelings and healing wounds weren't painful enough, there's a new threat for Michael.

In the latest Michael adventure, our hero was hell-bent on getting back into intelligence work – nothing new, really. However, that meant dancing with Strickler, a foxtrot that Fiona was reluctant to take part in ...

More on Fiona's vulnerabilities after the jump. Meanwhile, another job popped up when Barry, money launderer and occasional member of the Michael troupe of operatives, called in all his favors and became the client.

(S03E07) Burn Notice
usually stays on the fun side of spying. This episode was all about getting back to doing a Robin Hood job, and since it tapped into Michael's psychology so perfectly, it added a good dollop of emotion to the fun.

And there was also that preview from last week that left fans gasping. Was one of the gang of three going down? Fortunately, in the world of spoilers and such, if that were true it would have been all over the net. Fortunately, it was all part of the con. More on that after the jump.

Here's video of the Burn Notice gang laughing, swearing, and burping

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 23rd 2009 5:41PM
If you read my updated TV Squad profile, you'll see that besides infomercials, my guilty pleasure is blooper shows. You don't see many of them on TV nowadays, but you do get a lot of gag reels on DVD sets. Since Burn Notice is on tonight I thought I'd post this clip of season two outtakes. They sure do swear a lot.

Here's a preview of tonight's Burn Notice

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 16th 2009 6:25PM
I think there's a rule that every TV show about a spy has an episode about how they're trapped in a jungle or island and are hunted by the bad guys. That happens on tonight's episode ("The Hunter") of Burn Notice too, but it looks like fun. This clip shows Michael meeting Beck, who turns out to be a major part of that above scenario.

Burn Notice: Signals and Codes

Michael Weston met Michael Westen. How cool was it that Burn Notice cast actor Michael Weston -- remember him as the private eye who helped House last year? As a psycho/math genius/code breaker/pattern spotter named Spencer Witawski, he was sort of a detective here, too, good enough to have tracked down Michael and become the latest client.

As integral episodes go, this was a major one. Major for Michael and his desire to return to government work and major for the status of Fiona and Michael's relationship. And did I mention that it was a major league great show, too? More after the jump.

Burn Notice: Fearless Leader

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 26th 2009 9:33AM
Michael_Burn_Notice_Jeffrey_Donovan(S03E04) That pesky Detective Paxson of the Miami PD continued to be a thorn in Michael's side, to the point that Michael decided it was time to extract her from his life. To get Paxson -- one royal pain in the butt who doesn't believe that Michael's one of the good guys -- Michael concocts a plan to help her close her case against Rick Matheson, a real bad guy.

Matheson was a one-note Rock look-alike, without Dwayne Johnson's charm. Mostly Matheson was a scumbag who deserved to be brought down.

Tommy, on the other hand, wasn't really a nasty moke. He was broadly hammed up by former NYPD Blue star Nick Turturro, and turned out to be Michael's way into Matheson's organization.
