McNally Shuts Down a Man's Murder-Suicide Plan on 'Rookie Blue' (VIDEO)

'Rookie Blue'The only scripted new series from the several ABC launched last summer to get renewed returned with its second season. And the action wasn't going to let up a bit on 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 10PM ET on ABC) for the fresh-faced rookie officers.

In this season premiere, McNally tracked one possibly the failingest criminal in the short history of the show to a rooftop where he was going to jump off. Except that he didn't. It kind of ruined his murder-suicide plan.

The intention was to murder his ex-girlfriend and then commit suicide. Instead he killed his ex-girlfriend's roommate, and McNally, and now he couldn't even jump off the roof. But he could talk, and while he was talking, McNally snuck up behind him and took out his knees, knocking him back onto the ground.

'Rookie Blue' Stars Missy Peregrym and Gregory Smith: Season 2 Gets Hotter, Sexier

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Jun 22nd 2011 1:00PM

The 'Rookie Blue' set is buzzing as the cast and crew work away on Season 2. The biggest change here since Season 1 is the addition of a toilet in one of the cells –- part of the painstaking efforts to make the show as realistic as possible.

The breakout hit from last summer is filmed on location across Toronto, but its base is here, inside a non-descript warehouse just outside the downtown core. Right now the cast is gathered in the briefing room as the crew films a meeting scene from every possible angle. While the rookies may not be brand spanking new, they still have a lot to learn. Season 2 has lots of curveballs in store, including the addition of Lauren Holly ('Dumb & Dumber') in a recurring role.

We caught up with stars Missy Peregrym, who plays Andy, and Gregory Smith, who plays Dov, between takes to get the rundown on what to expect from their sophomore season. (Hint: there's gonna be a love triangle!) They also dish on second-season jitters, newly found admirers and feedback from real-life cops.

The Cops Battle a Superhero on 'Rookie Blue' (VIDEO)

The Cops Battle a Superhero on 'Rookie Blue'You know how most superheroes -- like, say, Batman -- try to help the cops and prevent crime? Well, that's not what happens on the new 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC). In fact, the exact opposite is the case.

[Spoiler alert.]

Rookie cops Chris and Dov (played by Travis Milne and Gregory Smith) are trying to catch a drug dealer. Then, they encounter a masked vigilante called "The Guardian." With a name like "The Guardian," you would think he'd be one of the good guys, right? However, the masked man doesn't help the cops out at all. Instead, he robs them and then locks them out of their squad car -- unintentionally allowing the drug dealer to escape.

Missy Peregrym Talks About Shaving Her Face (VIDEO)

Missy Peregrym Talks About Shaving Her FaceOkay, first things first. Let's just get this out of the way. And sorry if it's a little reductive and sexist. Missy Peregrym is really really good-looking! (Also, her name is weird. Is her last name Welsh or something?)

Missy is a former model who appeared on the latest episode of 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox). She's also an actress on the new series 'Rookie Blue.' Excitingly, Missy has also appeared on a bunch of sci-fi shows in the past -- which makes her seem more accessible for those of us nerds who dream of someday going out with a supermodel.

While on the talk show, Missy tells host Craig Kilborn about the time that a make-up artist on a sci-fi series wanted to shave her face. Apparently, the pretty amazingly hot Missy had a "mustache," and so the make-up artist tried to use a razor on her.

Craig Kilborn had this response to Missy's story: "No! Don't shave it! It's gonna grow back fuller!"

Good point, Craig! Shaving hair does make it come back more bushy than it was before. That's a true scientific fact. You could look it up.

'Rookie Blue' Set Visit: This Is Not Your Average Cop Show

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Jun 21st 2010 9:27AM

Trying to decide which shows will make it into your summer couch potato sessions? You may want to consider 'Rookie Blue', a new cop show being billed as the 'Grey's Anatomy' for the 5-0. The show follows five rookie officers as they struggle to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to be a cop in the big city. Naturally, emotions run high and sexual tensions mount.

We stopped by the 'Rookie Blue' set, located in a non-descript warehouse on the eastern outskirts of Toronto's downtown core, to scope things out. We found lots of cops (both actors and the real deal) and rat traps big enough to house a family of raccoons. We also tracked down two of the show's stars: Missy Peregrym ('Reaper', 'Heroes'), who plays super-keener Andy McNally, and Gregory Smith ('Everwood'), who plays the wise-cracking thrill-seeker Dov Epstein. The stars filled us in on everything you need to know about 'Rookie Blue'.

Missy Peregrym of 'Rookie Blue' Doesn't Want to Be Famous

Missy Peregrym in ABC's 'Rookie Blue'
You never know when a simple statemetn can lead down an interesting path in an interview. When Missy Peregrym, who stars in the new ABC summer cop show 'Rookie Blue,' called me directly to do our interview last week, I told her that I was a bit surprised she didn't go through a publicist, like the vast majority of the people I interview choose to do.

She joked that she'll do that when she's "really famous" then said she was kidding. Then she told me that in reality, "I just don't want to be famous. I feel like there's a lot of sacrifice in that I'm not really willing to make."

What follows is a refreshingly honest interview from the down-to-earth Peregrym, who grew up in British Columbia being taught always to be herself by her parents (her father is a minister). The lesson has helped her since a modeling career led her to Hollywood eight years ago, and she landed the starring role in the short-lived WB series 'Black Sash.'

Peregrym and I talked about what she's learned in her time in showbiz, how much she loves her 'Rookie Blue' character Andy McNally, and how the comparisons to 'Grey's Anatomy' are fairly accurate. We also talked a little bit about 'Reaper,' where she played Andi, Sam's on-again, off-again girlfriend. Let's just say she doesn't think the CW had much invested in promoting the show. Our talk, and some clips, after the jump.

'Rookie Blue' debuts Thursday, June 24, at 9PM ET on ABC.

Reaper: My Brother's Reaper

by Brad Trechak, posted May 6th 2009 1:04AM
Reaper(S02E10) What better way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo then watching the Devil once again torment Sam Oliver. I liked that they made some progress with the whole Morgan storyline. It would be a good story to have Morgan escape Hell to hunt down Sam for vengeance while Sam has to hunt Morgan to get him back to Hell.

I'm glad there was an ulterior motive for Nina's flirtations with Morgan, otherwise there is no logical explanation for her attraction to Ben. Ben is not evil. Ben is the opposite of evil. If a demon is attracted to evil, she would not be attracted to Ben.

On the other hand, I thought Morgan would sleep with Nina before the episode finished, thus ending (or at least complicating) both their characters. I didn't see that twist coming.

Reaper: No Reaper Left Behind

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 29th 2009 1:50AM
Reaper's Ray Wise(S02E09) There were those expected Reaper funny moments, but overall, this was a pretty serious episode. We really only juggled two major storylines this week, and neither of them were about collecting escaped souls. We had Sam beginning his instruction in bringing about the end times as our main focus. On the opposite end of the spectrum, and providing the most laughs, surprisingly enough, was the ugly breakup saga of Nina and Ben.

Andi was right about Sam; he's getting darker for the world he's trapped in. His machinations tonight with the Devil's shut-in "girlfriend" Sandy were downright diabolical. Sure, his ultimate goal of taking down the Devil and freeing himself is noble, but is he willing to do too much to get out of it? Not that I really see a more pure approach working. In fact, I've always wondered just how much the Devil knows. I would think he knows everything that Sam does, even when Sam's trying to betray him or undercut him in some way. Hell, he's the Devil. He's probably proud of him when that happens.

Reaper: The Home Stretch

Reaper(S02E08) In which Sam once again proves that he's in a world of poop and the Devil once again proves that he's evil.

With this show likely to not last beyond this season, I am wondering how the creators are going to end the show. Will they use a cliffhanger or at least give a satisfying ending to the viewers?

Tonight's episode juggled four storylines (and very successfully, I should say). The first involved Sam and his brother Morgan and their (non-)competition to catch a soul. The second was the search for the escaped soul Alan (a goal Andi desires so she can get back with Sam). The third was Sock's funeral misadventures. The fourth was Ben's relationship with both Nina and his grandmother.

Should Reaper now abandon all hope?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 8th 2009 3:01PM
The cast of CW's ReaperReaper is not just one of my favorite TV shows. It's also one of my TV's favorite surprises. Every time I watch an episode, my TV suffers a moral dilemma.

"This show is funny, witty, very entertaining and unafraid to be absurd and just plain bat#*$& crazy," my TV said to me during last week's episode. "Why the #*$& am I letting you watch it?"

It looks as though my TV is about to get its way. It always does. It cuts all my favorite scenes from Top Gear before they are transferred from the British to the American version. It never lets my TiVo keep an All in the Family episode past a couple of days. It would broadcast nothing but Billy Mays commercials in my head if it developed telepathy, and trust me, it's working on it. I'd throw the thing out the window, but that's not covered in the warranty. The manufacturer may not call that an "act of God," but I sure as hell would.

Reaper: I Want My Baby Back

Andrew Airlie as Sam's zombie dad in Reaper

(S01E05) "Lookin' sharp, Buffy, lookin' sharp." - Devil to Sam while he was holding a wooden stake

Season two of Reaper continues to entertain: it's funny, smart and unexpected, while still delivering all the things we loved about Reaper in season one. From using Sam's zombie dad to scare the poop out of Ben in the car, to the tongue-in-cheek shout-out to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this episode delivered.

One thing this episode did suffer from, though, is something I feared. Because they've introduced so many characters, we only saw a brief bit of them this week (and we didn't see Nina at all), and I was left wanting more of some. I guess we got a good fill of the dad, and it was so great to have demon Tony back. But I missed Nina, and I craved more Morgan. I'm wondering, too, if Kristen will end up being more than a bizarre sex symbol for Sock.

Reaper: The Favorite

Sam, Ben and Sock hiding in tub from soul on Reaper
(S02E04) Reaper pulled it out again with another winner of an episode. Something tells me they know exactly what they are doing this season, and I'm loving every second of it.

Although I enjoyed the addition of Morgan, the Devil's other son, very much, I was getting a bit irritated that they kept introducing new characters -- Kristen, Nina, Morgan -- and just left the whole storyline with Sam's dad floating out there. I was getting nervous that they didn't really know what to do with it, so they were just going to drop it and hope we didn't remember. Well, they got back to it tonight, and I can't wait to see it all come together.

But we'll get to that later. Let's talk about the rest of the episode first...

Reaper: Dirty Sexy Mongol

demon from

How'd Reaper do this week? As much as I enjoyed it, this episode has left me with a few longings for more. Don't worry, I wasn't wishing I was watching the 13 American Idol wannabes performing over on FOX, but I do think there are places that Reaper could go that would be extremely satisfying.

In fact, they went there at the end of season one. The conspiracy with Sam's dad (um, does Sam even know that his dad is alive?), the demon rebellion, Sam's true parentage ... I want more! When I saw Andrew Airlie's name in the opening credits, I got excited, thinking we were headed back to the darker side of Reaper, to the secrets of Sam's family (remember his mom digging up his dad at the end of season one?) and really getting to some good stuff.

Bah, I guess I'll have to wait for that, but I'm hoping they'll deliver. Reaper did deliver laughs and a bit of a story arc tonight.

TV Squad Ten: Canadians who shine on US TV

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 9th 2009 5:01PM
Cobie SmuldersIn case you didn't know, I'm Canadian. That being said, I watch tons and tons of American TV, partially because our main English channels -- CTV and Global, just to name two -- mostly air US shows. And, let's admit it, I enjoy a lot the shows created by my friends south of the border.

Since there are more TV shows produced in the US and because actors can make more money down south, a lot of Canadian actors go to the USA. to work (or try to get work in a US show shot in Vancouver or Toronto). Here I present you with ten Canadian actors currently starring in lead roles in various primetime US TV shows. Did you know these ten actors were not from the US?
