Sarah Michelle Gellar Doubles Your Pleasure: When Actresses Tackle Dual Roles

by Stephanie Earp, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:00PM
After 8 years away from TV, Sarah Michelle Gellar returns this fall in 'Ringer,' one of the more talked-about pilots of the season. Never one to back away from a challenge, our girl comes back not as one character, but two -- identical twins Bridget and Siobhan. As SMG herself pointed out at Comic-Con, she's doing this for the love of the game, not the paycheck (only soap stars get paid extra when they take on an evil twin/clone/long lost cousin side project). In honor of her noble dedication to her craft, here's a few other actresses who've gotten multiple listings in a TV credit.

TV's Greatest Rivalries: 'Survivor,' 'Dynasty,' 'True Blood' & More

by Maggie Furlong & Jean Bentley, posted Jun 22nd 2011 9:00AM
We used to watch 'The Real World' and 'Road Rules' religiously, and then MTV combined those powerfully awesome forces to create 'The Challenge.'

Well now we're old(er) and we're still inexplicably excited for their latest fight-to-the-death challenge, the series' 11th incarnation, 'The Challenge: Rivals' (premieres Wed., June 22, 10PM ET on MTV).

The Challenge: Rivals

Of course, looking through their slideshow of supposedly epic rivalries, only a few familiar faces from the old days truly stand out: Wes and Kenny, Adam and CT, Johnny and Tyler, Nehemiah and Evan, Paula and Evelyn and even Robin and Aneesa. We're not saying the rest of the eight teams battling it out aren't vicious (we know better than that), they're just not sparking any vivid memories.

So we thought we'd remind TV lovers what a true battle royale looks like -- here, our list of TV's Greatest Rivalries.

Eliza DushkuThe 'Dollhouse' may be closed for business, but its star Eliza Dushku is as busy as ever. It's been reported that she will guest star on an upcoming episode of 'White Collar' and, that if all goes well, she could be back for more.

TV on DVD: I'm an Addict

by Stephanie Earp, posted May 3rd 2011 3:00PM

Last Sunday night found me red-eyed and bleary, the first pangs of hunger finally breaking through the imaginary wall I put around my mind. I emerged from a two-day bender and found myself wrapped in my bathrobe, my hair lank, sitting in a well-defined groove on the couch.

You see, I just got the season 5 DVDs of 'Friday Night Lights' and I watched the entire thing in about 20 hours. I gorged on those episodes, ignoring all but the most pressing bodily needs, until the Taylors and the motley residents of Dillon, Texas had shown me all they ever would of their lives.

Angela Chase of 'My So-Called Life' and 5 Other Deep TV Teens

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 26th 2011 11:00AM
my so-called lifeWith Snooki, Paris and those glitzy 'Gossip Girls' skankin' up the tube, it's nice to know that 'My So-Called Life''s sensitive and smart grunge girl, Angela Chase, has returned to TV.

What's that? You have no idea who Angela Chase is? And you've never heard of 'My So Called Life,' which began airing on the Sundance Channel last night and will continue every Tuesday at 9PM. Well, stop texting for two seconds you pretty young thing and I'll tell ya all about it ...

'My So-Called Life' was a beloved and acclaimed TV drama from a strange and wonderful time called "the '90s." You might have heard of the '90s; it was a time when we had to watch our favorite shows when they were on (because who wanted to program the VCR, really?), people could actually see Nirvana perform live, and people still wanted to see Metallica perform live. It was a joyous time, but being a teen in the '90s could be rough, what with everyone using their parachute pants to smuggle guns and Walkmans into school every day. Luckily, Angela Chase, played by Claire Danes, was there to share our pain.

Angela was smart, introspective and sensitive, and she helped pave the way for a number of deep and clever young TV ladies that followed. In celebration of Angela's return to the small screen, here's a list of five smart young female characters from the past several years of TV history.

Seven Romantic Cliches on TV

by Kim Potts, posted Feb 11th 2011 4:30PM
Moonlighting With Valentine's Day almost upon us, we're turning to -- where else? -- the tube for inspiration on all things romantic.

Oh sure, love in prime time has always been littered with cliché after cliché, but you have to admit -- TV land's couples also have a whole lot of happy endings under their belts.

So here, from odd couples and shrewish women to love triangles and TV jerks and the women who love them, TV's most enduring love clichés:

'The Taming of the Shrew' Couples
Let's say this upfront: No one exemplifies this romantic TV cliché more than 'Moonlighting' duo Maddie and David, who even starred in 'Atomic Shakespeare,' a classic episode of the '80s dramedy that cleverly spoofed both their relationship and 'The Taming of the Shrew.'

TV Squad Mash: Dancing to the Beat

by Avaryl Halley, posted Jan 17th 2011 10:00AM
GleeIt's undeniable: 'Glee' is a sensation, a phenomenon, a pop cultural juggernaut thanks to its inventive song-and-dance numbers. So, we decided to put together a little tribute to all the TV musical/dance numbers that came before it and will certainly come after this Gleek invasion.

The idea of a incorporating musical numbers into a weekly TV show has been around since the 1950's when Lucy "wanted to be in the show.' They haven't always been successful (see: 'Cop Rock', 'Viva Laughlin') but they have always pushed the boundaries and brought levity and warmth into our living rooms or more recently our computer screens.

Check out this compilation of some of the best musical and dance numbers throughout television history; reminding us all to shake it up, to break into song in the middle of work, to tap dance on your way to class, and always, always sing way too loud in your car.

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 9th 2010 3:00PM
Mankind has always been fascinated by the things that we can't explain -- ghosts, vampires, magic, mystery -- and popular culture is saturated with TV shows and movies that play on that obsession.

From the campy, spellbinding classics of the '60s to the dark, spooky series that haunted the '90s, audiences have been fixated with the paranormal -- whether it's a butt-kicking blonde in killer heels, a couple of hunky demon-hunting brothers or a trio of sibling witches -- some of the most enduring shows in the history of television deal with the things that go bump in the night or the extraordinary powers we wish we could harness.

To further feed this dark, dangerous obsession with the extraordinary or otherworldly, TV Squad has compiled a list of our top 20 favorite TV shows dealing with magic and the world of the supernatural.

'Buffy' Without Joss Whedon Is Not 'Buffy' At All: Why the Movie Reboot Needs to be Staked

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 23rd 2010 11:50AM
Buffy the Vampire SlayerIt seems like you can't swing a vampire in Hollywood without hitting a reboot or "re-imagining" of a fan-favorite franchise these days, from 'The A-Team' and 'Spider-Man' all the way down to 'V'.

Rumors of a proposed 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' movie reboot have been gaining momentum for months, but confirmation finally came Monday morning when Warner Bros. announced that the project is indeed going ahead.

But here's the kicker: It'll be without the involvement of 'Buffy' mastermind Joss Whedon, the man who wrote the screenplay to the original 1992 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' film and helmed the iconic TV series of the same name.

Instead, the project is being penned by Whit Anderson, an actress turned writer (with no previous screenwriting credits, according to IMDB) whose interview with the L.A. Times' Hero Complex sent fans -- including yours truly -- into an apoplectic, foaming fit of outrage yesterday. Just another Monday on the internet ...
