Review: NCIS - Jet Lag

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 27th 2010 12:45AM
ziva_tony_NCIS_jet_lag(S07E13) So there they were in Paris -- Tony and Ziva. The situation was ripe for romance, right? Was NCIS finally going to "go there" and let fans have a Moonlighting moment for their favorite characters?

Not so fast. Before you could say Champs Elysees, the two were boarding a jet at Charles de Gaulle airport to complete an assignment that turned into murder in the air. Fortunately, the mystery on the airliner trumped the one on the ground and made for a good episode.

All Michael P. wants for Festivus

by Michael Pascua, posted Dec 10th 2009 4:33PM
My favorite reality tv host, The Amazing Race's Phil.I could have sworn that I was trying to find a Halloween costume yesterday, but while I was digging I should have found my aluminum pole instead. It's Festivus again and I'm letting my wishes commence.

I know my tastes skew towards reality TV, but I've gotten some obscure wishes this year on how to improve my television experience.

  • No more football overrunning The Amazing Race. If we know that an NFL game is stretched into three hours, why can't they start a half hour early and if they end on time have 30 minutes of post-show analysis and interviews? They could even dedicate 30 minutes to pre-game analysis. If you're investing three hours, you are willing to invest four.

Top 13 Scariest Moments on Television

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 29th 2009 2:02AM
That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power. Admit it, we've all gone to bed at some point in our lives after watching something scary on TV, and we've pulled the covers up over our heads. It's not real, yet it has the power to make us afraid. Very afraid.

In the spirit of Halloween, here are the Top 13 scariest moments on television (in no particular order). Let us know if we've missed the mark.

Stump the King - Sci-Fi

by Paul Goebel, posted Aug 18th 2008 5:12AM

Jeff Yagher from Star Trek: VoyagerI got a great letter this week from a TV fan named Jim R.

"Dear TV Squad, About 15 years ago, I watched an episode of a scifi/fantasy TV show wherein an Elvis impersonator traveled back in time to meet (and eventually kill) the real Elvis. Could you please tell me the name of this program? Thanks"

Medium: Car Trouble - VIDEO

by Paul Goebel, posted Apr 29th 2008 9:23AM

Hottest boss ever.(S04E14) Out of all the dreams Allison has awakened from this season, tonight gets my vote for "Most Likely to Make You Jump Out of Bed and Scare the Crap Out of Your Sleeping Husband."

One thing you have to get used to if you are fan of Medium, is the ever present scene where somebody doesn't understand how Allison knows what she knows. Even though Joe, Davalos, Scanlon and most of her friends are well aware why Allison acts so strange, there are still plenty of people who are baffled by her behavior and, as a matter of course, have to react with disbelief and/or confusion. It gets old but it's a necessary evil. The most genuine of these reactions, however, come from the Dubois children.

Eli Stone: Heartbeat

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 4th 2008 1:11AM
Eli Stone(S01E10) The title of this episode was called "Heartbeat" because Eli's case involved a heart transplant -- two actually -- but "Reflections" might have been more appropo. Eli awakened in Nate's body and continued to find himself reliving his brother's life ten years before. And not on just any day, but the day that their dad died.

Overall, this was a particularly interesting episode because it seemed to lay the groundwork for where Eli Stone is going. Since it's likely that the show is going to be renewed -- deservedly so -- the prospect of Eli getting that surgery which may correct the aneurysm that's causing his visions, may not be happening after all.

Did David Chase take his cue from The Twilight Zone?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 14th 2007 4:19PM

SopranosOK, if you're not all exhausted by the Sopranos talk and examination of that final scene, let me bring up yet another take on the episode, via a friend of TV critic Roger Catlin at The Hartford Courant.

During the scene in the safehouse in the episode, there an an episode of The Twilight Zone playing on the television. An alert viewer figured out that it was the 1963 episode "The Bard," where a TV writer gets help from the ghost of William Shakespeare, who gets angry at the meddling from advertisers and the network and eventually punches an actor (Burt Reynolds).

Twilight Zone marathon on New Year's

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 29th 2006 9:03PM

rod serlingThe SciFi Channel is airing a Twilight Zone marathon that will run from 9am on December 31 through 5am on January 2. As much as I'd love to record every episode, that's a bit much for ye olde Tivo to handle, so I had to cherry pick my favorite episodes and just record those. Someday I'll do what Bob did and buy the complete set on DVD, but for now I'll have to make due with what SciFi offers me. At least it's the original Rod Serling version and not any of those god-awful remakes that popped up later, though I think even fans like myself have to remember that not every episode of the original Twilight Zone was perfect. Some of them were rather heavy-handed and cornball, but memory sometimes has a way of only recalling the best of some things.

Speaking of the complete DVD set, you can watch some of the DVD extras on the SciFi site, including actor commentaries.
