Andy Decides to Kidnap the Competition on 'Weeds' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:53AM
'Weeds' - 'System Overhead'Emma turned the Botwin family's world upside down, but in Andy's case it was quite literal. After taking Silas for an emotional, and physical ride, she then took the "brain" of the Botwin family drug business on last week's 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime).

Then, she decided to literally turn Andy's bike shop upside down, hanging from the ceiling what was on the floor and vice-versa. While it was a pretty trippy visual, we're not sure what she was trying to prove. How powerful her organization was, perhaps?

Probably, as she was certainly pretty cocky and sure of herself when Silas confronted her on the sidewalk. She even remained cool and aloof when Andy showed up on the scene with a nail gun to kidnap her.

Silas' New Hire Is More Than She Appears to Be on 'Weeds' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 23rd 2011 6:12AM
Michelle Trachtenberg, 'Weeds'Bringing in a new employee in any business is a risky venture. If it's an illegal operation, due dilligence is even more essential. And yet, Silas let his libido do the hiring on 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime), when he invited

Shane convinced Nancy to let him be her man on the inside, as part of his internship program with the cops. But his isn't nearly as savvy as he needed to be, and winds up arrested. The evidence he did bring home, though, would have been helpful if Silas had only seen it the day before.

Instead, he invites Emma to flip from their rival organization, Pouncy House, and into his organization. He brings her in, shows her the operation and then promptly sleeps with her.

The Irish and Italians Fight on 'Mercy' (VIDEO)

Mercy, Irish and Italians FightWhat do you get when you put a bunch of Irish and Italian people in the same hospital waiting room? A big fight, that's what.

At least, that's what happened on 'Mercy' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) when the Fighting Irish got to live up to their name. Anyway, they were in the right place for all of those resulting cuts and scrapes. Kudos to Chloe for some kick-ass fire extinguisher skills.

Watch the video after the jump.

What's Hot on SlashControl: Veronica clashes with Dr. Harris on Mercy

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 22nd 2009 1:31PM
Mercy - Veronica and Dr. HarrisThere's so much cool stuff on SlashControl, it's hard to choose what to feature. But since I get to do this every day, that'll make it easier. Today, I'm featuring a clip from one of my favorite new shows, Mercy. It's not like we don't have enough hospital/doctor/nurse shows on right now, but there's something about Mercy that's different.

Maybe it's the actors, which include Taylor Schilling, James Tupper, and Michelle Trachtenberg. Maybe it's the fact that the main character, Veronica, has just come home from Iraq and is still wounded from that experience. And yet she keeps moving forward, despite issues like smashing a windshield with a cinder block when she's angry.

That raccoon in Mercy totally creeped me out!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 8th 2009 10:02AM
Michelle Trachtenberg and raccoon on MercyWhoa! I did NOT see that coming. One of the cases on last night's episode of Mercy was a woman suspected of having rabies after feeding a raccoon. So they brought the raccoon in to have it checked out. It was supposed to be dead, thanks to a poison apple and some peanut butter, but when the lid came off the styrofoam cooler, the coon jumped out and started running around the hospital floor.

Just the idea of a raccoon with rabies is creepy enough, but add in letting it loose in a hospital and the creep factor goes way up.

Michelle Trachtenberg on Mercy, Gossip Girl and True Blood

by Angie Argabrite, posted Sep 30th 2009 12:00PM
You may know Michelle Trachtenberg as 'Gossip Girl''s (the CW, Mon., 9PM) resident bad girl, Georgina. But this season Trachtenberg hopes you'll also get to know her as brand-new nurse Chloe on the freshman hospital drama 'Mercy' (NBC, Weds., 8PM).

The busy ingenue found time to dish with AOL TV about how Georgina's like the devil, how Trachtenberg got into the head of good girl Chloe -- and whether she'll revisit her vampire past one way or another (probably not a 'Buffy' movie, but maybe reuniting with Alan Ball for 'True Blood').

Gossip Girl: The Lost Boys

Gossip Girl
(S03E03) "Please tell me it was Blair and not Georgina." - Vanessa and Serena in unison to Dan

Dan may be on a new path since he arrived at NYU, but he hasn't changed enough to be Blair-worthy. Funny that both girls hoped that he slept with Blair and not Georgina. I get that they prefer Blair over Georgina even if both can be rather evil, but Dan and Blair will happen when pigs fly. Now I have to try to remove that mental picture of Blair and Dan making out from my brain!

In any case, this week's episode of Gossip Girl continued the Dan and Georgina hooking up storyline, put Chuck and Blair at odds, and put Carter and Serena at odds, while having Scott make some true and false revelations.

Gossip Girl: The Freshman

Gossip Girl
(S03E02) The scene we've been waiting for all summer long has finally aired: Blair discovering that Georgina is her college roommate! Even if the scene fell flat a tiny bit because it quickly cut to commercials after Georgina announced she was coming to NYU and was Blair's roommate, the rest of the episode Gossip Girl delivered the evil and backstabbing we've grown to love from both ladies. I do not wish any new TV show to get canceled -- Michelle Trachtenberg is on NBC's Mercy -- but admit that it would be great to have Georgina stick around for most of the season, eh?

TV Squad previews NBC's new shows (Part 3)

Previewing NBC's fall offerings has been a long process. First I gave you Community and Trauma, then Parenthood. Now, I have NBC's second medical drama that's premiering this year: Mercy. While Trauma follows first responders in San Francisco, Mercy follows nurses in a hospital in New York.

While it's true that I've seen the pilot and should be able to give you some insight into what to expect when it premieres (Wednesday September 23, at 8 PM ), the fact is, every single thing you need to know about Mercy is summed up in its synopsis:

"Nurse Veronica Callahan (Taylor Schilling) has just returned to Mercy Hospital from a tour in Iraq and knows more about medicine than all of the residents combined. Together with fellow nurses Sonia Jimenez (Jaime Lee Kirchner) who turns the heads of everyone at Mercy hospital and Chloe Payne (Michelle Trachtenberg) a naïve newcomer who learns to deal with the difficulties of working in a challenging and sometimes unsettling profession, they navigate the daily traumas and social landmines of life and love both inside the hospital and out."

Gossip Girl
(S02E22) "Gabriel is a good guy." - Serena

We may still not know who Gabriel really is and what his end game is, but it's clear now (as most of us thought last week), that Gabriel is no an angel. Blair and Chuck's spy work to find out what Gabriel was up to led them to Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg). For those of you who were looking forward to seeing sparks fly with the return of Georgina on the show were in for quite a surprise when a new and improved version of Georgina Sparks first appeared on screen. But will her old self come back, as was the case for Serena? Next week will probably tell.

Courteney Cox goes straight to the top on Scrubs

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 10th 2008 8:22AM
courtney coxI'm a sucker for stunt casting. Sure, it can get annoying after a while, (hello Will & Grace) but I still love seeing a Michelle Trachtenberg on Gossip Girl or a Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother. So I was really excited to read that Courteney Cox has signed up to guest star on Scrubs this season.

Cox, who was most recently seen on her FX drama, Dirt, is returning to the small screen for a three-episode arc as Sacred Heart's newest Chief of Medicine. The position was left open after Dr. Kelso (Ken Jenkins) retired at the end of last season. Since Cox is only going to be on the show for a handful of episodes, something tells me that she's not going to do well in her new position. Her character is said to "ruffle some feathers," and it sounds like she's ruffling the wrong ones right out the door.
