Law & Order: SVU snags James Brolin for season premiere

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 17th 2008 8:02AM
james brolinOf all the Law & Orders -- and I watch all three -- Special Victims Unit is the one that indulges in more character-oriented storytelling. That's all for the better, as far as I'm concern, whether that means going inside Olivia's mind as she's struggled with knowing she was a child of rape, or suffering when Elliot's marriage was on the rocks.

When the new season of SVU returns on Tuesday, September 23, we'll be getting some more character development with a special appearance by Emmy winner James Brolin.

Richard Belzer, who plays Detective Munch, mentioned Brolin's guest appearance to TV Guide, saying, "He's a great guy; he's got a big fight scene with Stabler, so that should be fun." Brolin is playing a former military man who shares a past connection with Elliot. Hmm...was Christopher Meloni ever on Pensacola: Wings of Gold? Brolin, by the way, turns 68 this Friday, July 18. Remember when he was the hot, young motorcycle-riding Dr. Steve Kiley on Marcus Welby, M.D.?

New episodes of Moral Orel start in November

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 18th 2006 6:15PM
moral orelOkay, apparently I need to have my eyeballs polished because I've been checking out the Adult Swim schedule grid every day for several weeks and I just now noticed that new episodes of Moral Orel are scheduled to start November 12 at 12:15 am (technically Monday morning). Frankly, I'm surprised to see it back so soon, but I'm definitely not complaining. Will I review these episodes like I did last season? I haven't decided yet, but either way I'll definitely be watching them. Based on the schedule, it looks like Adult Swim will be airing the episodes out of order just like they did last season. Also, since they tend to shuffle their lineup around with little warning, the premiere date could possibly change, so I'll try to stay on top of things for my fellow fanatics.

Hustle ready for season three

HustleI couldn't sleep last night, so I watched an episode of Hustle at around 2:00 in the morning. During one of the breaks, there was a commercial for the new season and its new time: Wednesdays at 10 PM, starting June 28. What?! That's only thirteen days away!

I'm really surprised there hasn't been more buzz about this. I mean, I wouldn't have known about the US premiere of the new season if I hadn't stayed up that late. It deserves a bigger audience because it's really a fantastic, smart, fast-paced show. Plus, I heard the new season has Mickey and Danny streaking through London. Good stuff.

Whatever you do, NBC, do not split up Earl and The Office

by Richard Keller, posted May 12th 2006 10:07AM

Don't break up Earl and The OfficeTo the wonderfully talented executives at NBC:

You can move ER to another night, you can hire Star Jones to anchor the NBC Nightly News (take that, ABC), you can even cover every open schedule spot with an episode of Deal or No Deal; however, there is one thing that I'm asking... no, pleading... no, demanding you not to do. Do NOT split up My Name is Earl and The Office!

For once in God knows how long you have two shows on Thursday night that are a near-perfect match for each other. One leads very smoothly into another. I can't remember when there was a pair of win-win shows together on Must-See-TV. This may fall on deaf ears; networks are notorious for moving successful shows to other nights to boost ratings. However, if you split Earl and The Office, you risk losing a strong viewer base for whatever may allegedly replace ER that evening.

So, when you present your upfronts on Monday, please make sure you don't split up these two gems on your schedule. If you want to move them, go ahead. But, move them together.

New season of Foster's kicks off this month

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 16th 2006 11:02AM

foster's home for imaginary friendsWhile it's no small feat to create an animated series kids will love, or one adults will love, it's especially amazing when someone is able to create something that both kids and adults can get a kick out of. SpongeBob SquarePants is a perfect example, and so is pretty much everything Craig McCracken has had a hand in, from Dexter's Laboratory (which he didn't create, but did work on) to The Powerpuff Girls to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, which, by the way, will kick of its fifth season later this month (April 28 at 7 p.m. EST on Cartoon Network to be exact). I've praised Foster's plenty of times already, but I'll say again that if you like cartoons and haven't checked this one out yet, you should. The unique creatures and design of the show give it a kind of "storybook" feel, and there's plenty of subtle jokes for adults and slightly older kids. I loved the episode when a sculpture of Grandma Foster is broken, causing Bloo to point out in one scene that "a bust this big needs ample support." What makes McCracken's work so admirable is that he's able to combine elements that are both jokey and heartwarming. The result is a show both myself and my three-year-old niece can enjoy. As "simplistic" as the show may seem, that's actually quite an accomplishment.

Lost producers signed for next season

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 6th 2006 12:25PM

Lost; ABCIt was announced this morning that Lost executive producers/co-showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have both agreed to terms and plan to stay on with the show through the third season.

Both producers have a lot invested in the program. Lindelof co-wrote the two-hour pilot episode with J.J. Abrams and Cuse joined the team shortly thereafter. I would assume both EPs have had added responsibility as of late, since Abrams has been off making and promoting Mission: Impossible III.

This is good news though. I'd like this show to go on for at least two more seasons, but I still worry about all the unanswered questions. They've dug quite the hole and I just hope that everything will be answered satisfactorily.
