'The Event' Review: 10 Things to Know and Intel from the Show's Creator

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 20th 2010 12:15PM
'The Event' is a new conspiracy-mystery-thriller-adventure ensemble drama that kicks off its own brand of mythology 9PM ET Monday on NBC. Opinions vary on whether America is clamoring for another one of those.

If my opinion on the drama (which is below) isn't enough for you, I've also gotten some intel on 'The Event' from creator Nick Wauters; exclusive video and casting news follows. Wauters explained how the show will progress and evolve, how it will be augmented with online content, and how he and the show's writers plan to avoid making viewers feel like Charlie Brown after Lucy has pulled the football away.

What Is 'The Event'? The Stars Tell Us ... Sort Of (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 24th 2010 10:00AM
The biggest question of the fall TV season: What is the event?

I have absolutely no idea, but that's why 'The Event' is so intriguing. Mixing elements of hit sci-fi shows like 'Lost' with the addictive serialized nature of a '24,' the new NBC series (premieres Mon., Sept. 20, 9PM ET) follows a number of intriguing characters on all sides of a mysterious, possibly supernatural occurrence.

The stars of the show -- including Jason Ritter, Laura Innes, Blair Underwood, Scott Patterson and Zeljko Ivanek -- can't say too much for fear of network snipers, but I tried to get as much out of them as I could. The result? Even more intrigue, I think -- are you excited to watch?

Aliens in America gets axed

Aliens in America
Two weeks ago, I posted about Aliens in America's Adhir Kalyan landing an important recurring role on FX's Nip/Tuck. At the time I reported that news, it was unknown if The CW comedy would be renewed or not but it sure didn't smell good for the series since Kalyan, one of the show's star, got that other gig and rumors claimed that Scott Patterson was shopping around for a new job.

The grim reaper made a new victim: Aliens in America was canceled this week.

Miss Guided: Homecoming (series permiere)

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 19th 2008 9:22AM

Judy Greer(S01E01) I'm not quite sure what to make of this show. It's hard to decide what I like and don't like considering that the show is really not that unique. For example, I've always been a fan of Chris Parnell but his work on Miss Guided pales in comparison to the stuff he does on 30 Rock. The same goes for Brooke Burns but if I had to choose, I'd rather see her in those jeans she wore on Dog Eat Dog.

Judy Greer is super funny. Her guest spot on Two and a half Men was brilliant in my opinion. So when she got her own show, I was interested to say the least.

CW - executive session, fall season preview - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 21st 2007 7:00PM

The CWThe CW's got some funny sitcoms both old (Everybody Hates Chris) and new (Aliens in America -- more on that later), but the network's funniest asset is Paul McGuire, executive vice president, network communications.

Before introducing Dawn Ostroff, president entertainment, The CW, McGuire fires off some zingers to get the reporters up and running.

Of the recycled tote bags that The CW gave to the press (perfect for hauling all our cable swag home), McGuire quips, "They're made entirely from recycled billboards, including some from Hidden Palms -- or as some dirt bag reporter called it -- 'Hidden Ratings.'"

Patterson will play Gary, Justin's father. He's taking over the role from Patrick Breen, who portrayed the father in the pilot episode.

Gilmore Girls: Bon Voyage (series finale)

Gilmore Girls: Bon Voyage
(S07E22)
This may not have been the way Gilmore Girls was originally supposed to end, but, as it turned out, it was a pretty good way for it to go out.

When I think about it, ending the show in such a "rip off the Band-Aid" fashion was best for everyone, including the fans. We had only two weeks to cope with the show's departure, knowing that the finale was already shot and ready to go. Nothing we could do or say was going to change how we were going to leave Lorelai, Rory, Luke, and the rest of the folks in the Gilmore world. Because of that, there was no speculation, no guessing. And there were also no grand moments, supreme life changes, and the obligatory scenes of someone looking back on an empty room before turning out the lights. It was very understated. And very satisfying.

Scott Patterson: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 15th 2007 12:01PM
Scott PattersonIt may be unusual to devote an "In the Limelight" feature to a series regular on a popular TV show, but if you are like me, you have no idea in which TV series Scott Patterson appeared besides Gilmore Girls. You don't know if he ever was in movies or did theater work, etc.

Since Gilmore Girls is ending forever (sniff), I guess it's time we get to know Patterson a bit more as it may help us prepare for what he'll do next.

Gilmore Girls: Unto The Breach

Gilmore Girls: Unto the Breach
(S07E21)
So here we are... the next-to-last (or penultimate, if you want to use SAT words) episode of Gilmore Girls. Like I said when the show's demise was first announced, it seems like the show wouldn't be able to wrap up any of their loose ends, especially because the season was already in the can when the announcement was made. But as we found out from one Ms. Lauren Graham, chances were that the show wasn't going to come back, anyway, and the last few episodes were written to function as a season and series finale.

Gilmore Girls: It's Just Like Riding A Bike

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 24th 2007 11:32PM
Gilmore Girls(S07E19) Rumors have been flying around for years that Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson don't get along really well off the Gilmore Girls set. I've always wondered how things between them might go when the cameras weren't rolling. Would they be cordial to each other? Painfully polite?

Well, I'm wondering no longer. All I had to do was watch those first awkward scenes between Luke and Lorelai in this episode, and I now I have a pretty good idea how things are between this show's stars (if those rumors are true of course).

Gilmore Girls: Hay Bale Maze

Gilmore Girls: Hay Bale Maze(S07E18) Wow... I guess the whole "six-week spring break" tradition for Gilmore Girls has been carried over from the WB to the CW. But we're back with what might be the final five episodes of GG, and it looks like we're moving somewhat rapidly towards the series' inevitable conclusion.

But first, let me tell you why Taylor Doose is one of the most irritating characters in the history of television.

Gilmore Girls: Gilmore Girls Only

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 6th 2007 10:34PM
Gilmore Girls: Gilmore Girls Only(S07E17) When Dawn Ostroff, the CW's president of entertainment, was doing her "state of the network" press tour session in January, she said this about Gilmore Girls: "(David Rosenthal) was painted into a corner into with a storyline that he got out of. The second half of the season is much stronger, and I think viewers will be surprised."

I scoffed a little when she said that; nothing about the season to that point had suggested that the show was going to improve. But I've got to hand it to Rosenthal and company; the show has been on an upward trend, giving us about a month's worth of entertaining episodes that, while not quite up to the level of the show's creative peak, certainly give me hope that the show won't go out with a whimper, whether it's this season or next.

The key? Keep the Gilmore girls together. All three of them.

Gilmore Girls: Will You Be My Lorelai Gilmore?

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 27th 2007 10:25PM
Alexis Bledel(S07E16) This was a fun one. After all that had gone on over the course of this season -- the gnashing of teeth over the Lorelai/Chris pairing, the stresses of the Rory/Logan relationship, Luke's custody battle, Lor's and Chris' break-up, and Richard Gilmore's bypass -- Gilmore Girls fans needed an episode like this. It was light and fluffy and completely angst-free.

Well, except for Logan. But there needed to be some angst in his life, as the Logan we've been seeing for the last few weeks has been very... well, he's been very un-Logan-like lately. In other words, he's been the perfect boyfriend to Rory. You know that had to end eventually.

Gilmore Girls: I'm a Kayak, Hear Me Roar

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 20th 2007 10:34PM
Lauren Graham(S07E15) Perhaps Emily Gilmore should drink more often.

That's the take-away I get from this episode. When Emily drinks, she's warm and open, and almost forgiving of her "wayward" daughter Lorelai. When she doesn't drink, she's prickly, mean, and prone to judge everything and anything, including how her daughter is managing her life.

If I were Lorelai and I had the choice, I think I'd take drunk Emily any day of the week. And I think Lor realized that as she walked out of the Gilmore family dining room at the end of this episode.
