What to Watch: April 5 - 11

For the 100th episode of 'Bones', David Boreanaz directs a backward-looking episode that recalls the early days of the Booth-Brennan relationship and how romance almost got in the way of the work. I too remember the early days of 'Bones' - the expensive 3-D technology they used to reconstruct a body, seeing Angel in a suit, the awkward dialogue of the overly-techy techies. I admit, I didn't think the show would make it this far. But there's no doubt Emily Deschanel and Boreanaz have great chemistry and that the show has grown and improved since those early days. Is it the new 'Moonlighting'? Not exactly, but it still deserves kudos.

'Sons of Tucson' Guys Add Illegal Aliens to Family Photos (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 5th 2010 4:00AM
Illegal Aliens on 'Sons of Tucson'Thanks to photo manipulation, green screen and a confused-looking group of illegal aliens, Ron (Tyler Labine) and the Gunderson boys created a family photo album on last night's 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 9:30PM on FOX). Various childhood milestones were included, and Ron particularly enjoyed kissing his "bride" on their wedding day.

Said Ron, "Come on out, illegals! Let's take some photos.... We got our family -- my wife, your mother, little Brandon age 3, and this guy right here, weird Uncle Joe." Yeah, every family's got a weird Uncle Joe (or equivalent). Way to make those photos legit, Ron.

Gary Explores a Worst Case Scenario on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 29th 2010 2:04AM
Sons of Tucson, The Golden TicketYou know how when something bad happens, you automatically go down that road of the worst case scenario? It's human nature, and that's just what Ron and the boys do on 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on Fox) when it appears that their ruse may be out in the open.

"Worst case scenario? Gabe tells his dad, who's a cop! You go to prison for child endangerment. You're looking at about ten years, but you'll probably insist on representing yourself, in which case, you'll get 20," says Gary.

Tyler Labine Tells Story of Dangerous Childhood Dare (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 24th 2010 4:00PM
Foolhardy childhood dares are nothing new, but Tyler Labine's wins points for perhaps being one of the most dangerous. While in the ninth grade, the 'Sons of Tucson' star took a dive off a 93-foot cliff and broke several bones due to a poor landing, he said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Labine bit a hole in his tongue and broke two ribs and his sternum, he said. But, despite his injuries, he doesn't appear to have learned his lesson, and told Bonnie Hunt that kids should always accept crazy dares from their friends. (Seriously, though, don't.)

Ron Almost Gets Busted, Credits Meth-Use for Custody on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

Sons of TucsonPosing as the dad for three kids who aren't yours is pretty weird, but when Ron ran into an old friend on 'Sons of Tuscon,' (Sun., 9:30PM EST on FOX), his excuse was even stranger than the situation.

His friend knows Ron didn't have kids three years ago and all of the boys are clearly older than three, so what line does Ron come up with?

"The truth is I had the boys before I met you," he said. "It's kind of the turkey baster situation without the turkey baster."

Leave it to Ron to say somebody's meth-use caused his happy ending.

'Sons of Tucson' - 'Pilot' Recap

"All right, boys. Let's play house." - Ron to the Gunderson boys

It's hard to dislike 'Sons of Tucson,' and believe me, I've tried.

It stands on Fox's Sunday comedy pedestal as a mix of borrowed plots and styles. It's got the attitude of 'Malcolm in the Middle,' the plot of 'Arrested Development' and the dramatic tragedy of 'Breaking Bad.'

But, hey, if you're going to borrow, borrow from the best.

Slacker Saves the Day on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

Sons of Tucson, Tyler LabineYou'd probably get pretty creative if your banker dad ended up in prison over a bad stock deal, and you wanted to avoid being foster kids.

In the case of the Gunderson kids on 'Sons of Tucson' (8:30PM ET on Fox), that means wrangling a slacker to pose as their dad. Yeah, it's not a big brain teaser to figure out who the responsible ones are in this equation.

Gone Too Soon: Invasion

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 30th 2009 5:01PM
After the breakout success of Lost in 2004, the following year saw three big-budget attempts at science fiction series with dense continuity. Unfortunately, it also saw those three series ultimately fail to hang on to their viewers, through internal problems or network mismanagement, and fans were left with three frustrating cliffhangers.

While they were allowed to complete more episodes than many series that followed them, I suspect this trinity of cancellations is a big reason current TV viewers are nervous about jumping on board complex shows with intricate continuity and details.

I watched Surface, Threshold and Invasion that season, but always found myself much more involved with the stories and drama unfolding on the latter of the three. Despite Katrina-related sensitivity due to its hurricane-themed opening, Invasion did an amazing job of building tension during a possible alien infiltration. V could learn a thing or two from this show.

TV Squad previews FOX's new shows

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 7th 2009 9:42PM
FOX Network LogoWhile it was a little odd that the "screener" of Glee we got was the exact same episode that FOX aired after American Idol in the spring, the rest of these shows were truly new. Dramatic offerings included FOX's loose adaptation of the DC Comics property Human Target and Past Life. On the comedy side they offered us screeners for The Cleveland Show, Brothers, Sons of Tucson and the aforementioned Glee.

After enduring the screener for Do Not Disturb last season on FOX, I could only hope that these offerings were at least better than that offense to the senses. And they were. Well, most of them. Unfortunately, it seems that FOX has at least one Do Not Disturb in them every season. Other than that, one of these shows was far better than I expected, another a bit worse, and a third one stands as one of the better pilots I've ever seen.

Reaper: The Devil & Sam Oliver (series finale)

by Brad Trechak, posted May 27th 2009 12:22AM
Reaper(S02E13) Reaper has been axed by The CW and until I hear that another network has picked this show up, I will consider this the series finale and not simply the season finale. Admittedly, it ended on a mixed note.

I'm glad the Devil actually has a weakness with regards to his vanity. When a character is all-powerful, they get boring rather quickly. Thankfully, Ray Wise has the talent to keep the character interesting despite his handicap of near-omnipotence. When you consider that, you have to wonder how Sam could have possibly thought he had an advantage during the first game of quarters.

The character of Mary Pat (whom I found amusing, but only because she reminded me of some people I know) was gone pretty quickly. At first I thought Steve was back because they couldn't get Tony for the finale until the broken hand occurred. Obviously, the creators planned a bigger role for Sam as a pawn of the war between Heaven and Hell. It's a pity that unless the show miraculously gets picked up, it will never get resolved.

The entire situation with Nina was a cute homage to the Exorcist movies. At least Ben is happy at the end of the series.

Reaper refuses to abandon all hope

The cast of TV's There are a lot of shows with their heads on the chopping block, but one that truly deserves a stay of execution is furiously wiggling its head out of the neck brace.

Show producers are negotiating with local CW affiliates to bring Reaper back on Sunday nights next season in syndication. The deal could also bring the show to cable.

The Hollywood Reporter, however, notes that either scenario is a bigger long shot than Roseanne's chances of getting another crack at singing the National Anthem at a Padres' home game.

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: 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.

(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...
