'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Blood Brothers' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 30th 2010 9:38AM
The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley, Blood Brothers
(S01E20) "You're back on Bambi blood, and I'm a badass big brother again. All is right in the world." - Damon to Stefan

A jealous brother, an evil uncle, and a trusting girlfriend all played into this episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' We also got some flashbacks that revealed more of the Salvatore brothers' backstory and why Damon hates Stefan so much. Although, really, if he hated him that much, he wouldn't have organized the rescue mission to extract Stefan out of the vampires' farmhouse lair. Maybe he did it more for Elena than anything else.

And is it just me, or are Damon and Elena getting awfully chummy lately? I'll answer my own question: yes, they are.

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Under Control' Recap

The Vampire Diaries: Under Control
(S01E18) "Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?" - Damon

Somewhere in the last few episodes, things have shifted on 'The Vampire Diaries.' Now Damon seems like the good vamp (well, sort of; how fun was it to see his face when Uncle John came back from the dead?), while Stefan is going dark. I don't mind seeing Stefan go dark, because, frankly, he's a little boring being so virtuous all the time.

But he's not going willingly, that's for sure. He's trying hard to detox, but that drink of human blood last week -- Elena's blood -- gave him a wicked hunger that is not easily satisfied. Is there a 12-step program for vampires?

David Anders Signs for 'Vampire Diaries'

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:01PM
david anders Don't feel sorry for David Anders. I know it seems like he's constantly getting killed off or written out of high-profile shows, but the guy always seems to land on his feet with another juicy new role on a popular series.

Just a few days after his most recent TV baddie bit the dust, TV Guide has confirmed that Anders is joining the cast of the CW hit 'The Vampire Diaries'.

Anders has been tapped to play Jonathan Gilbert, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) uncle. But don't expect to see him acting like role a model for Mystic Fall's troubled teens. A source tells EW's Michael Ausiello that Uncle Jonathan is coming to town to "cause some trouble."

Review: Heroes - Pass/Fail

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 19th 2010 4:15AM
Heroes: Pass/Fail(S04E16) "Objection, your honor. He's reciting the opening to Quantum Leap." -- Adam Monro, prosecuting attorney in Hiro's mind-trial

This week, it was time to deal once and for all with that pesky tumor in Hiro's brain. This isn't Eli Stone, after all. Not to mention how downright loopy he's been lately. So apparently the resolution is for his body to collapse while he faces a strange trial in the diner where he met, failed-to-save, and then did save Charlie. David Anders reprised his role as Adam Monroe to prosecute our time traveling hero, while George Takei presided over the thing as his father and the judge.

The rest of the episode was split between Sylar's quest to figure out why Lydia's ability was directing him to Claire, and Samuel's attempts to woo Vanessa after he'd kidnapped her. I can say, that I thought he was off to a rough start on that one.

Review: 24 - 6:00PM-7:00PM/7:00PM-8:00PM

Annie Wersching as Renee Walker
(S08E03/S08E04) "Renee, I know where you are and it's a dark place." - Jack

24's two-night four-hour season premiere continued tonight with the season's third and fourth hours and, by the end of it, we finally got a pretty clear picture of what the larger threat is and where it's headed... at least until next week.

Renee finally made an appearance, Hassan didn't get taken out, and Hastings figured out that Chloe actually knows what she's talking about. But was any of that enough to make up for the numerous shortcomings this season has already displayed?

Will Jack Bauer be killed off?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 4th 2009 4:30PM
kiefer sutherland and elisha cuthbert in 24I wasn't particularly impressed with season seven of 24, partly because I really want Jack Bauer to be the kick-ass character he used to be, rather than the sickly guy struggling to survive (well, he's always been struggling, but in more of a kick-ass way).

The show took some heat for some of the earlier implausible plotlines (Really, Jack? You escape from the Secret Service guys and steal a helicopter to save the President? And say what? You spring back to life after being "dead" to find the bombs and save the world?), but that's what I loved about the show.

But could the Jack Bauer era be coming to an end? Kiefer Sutherland recently told Contact Music that he fears his character might be killed off.

David Anders joins 24

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 17th 2009 4:26PM
AndersI'm wondering when David Anders will get his very own show. Not as a supporting character, but a lead role. I think he has proven himself to be a good actor, good with both the dark stuff and the funny stuff, on shows like Alias (Julian Sark) and Heroes (Adam Monroe). I think he could carry a show.

For now, though, we'll have to be content with seeing him in supporting roles, including this new one. Anders has joined the cast of 24 for the 8th (and possibly last?) season. Sources say he'll be in a "handful of episodes."

Heroes: I Am Become Death

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 6th 2008 11:23PM
Heroes(S03E04) A lot of people have said in the comments that it appears as if I don't like Heroes. Believe me, that's not true. I'm actually a huge fan of the show. As a huge comic book junkie for more years and dollars than good sense will allow me to admit, the potential and general premise of this series is tremendously exciting. And the fact that it achieved such mainstream success right out of the gate was nothing short of astounding.

However, just like you'll tell your wife whom you love more than anything else that she has a piece of lettuce stuck in her teeth, I'm not going to just put on rose-colored glasses and pretend that every scene, line and moment of each episode is solid gold. If I see lettuce, I'm going to call them on it. Because the way I see it, it's just lettuce. It doesn't change how wonderful and beautiful she is in the slightest. It's just a little thing that needs to be taken care of because it's distracting me and it doesn't really fit the whole look her face is going for. Kind of like whatever's going on with Mohinder.

Tim Kring explains that Heroes finale (sort of)

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 4th 2007 7:01PM

HeroesI have a lot of problems with last night's season/fall finale of Heroes, most of which have already been discussed in Jason's review, in the comments section and elsewhere in the blogosphere. Why didn't Hiro freeze time again when he got into the vault with Adam? Why didn't Peter just stop time when Nathan was shot? Why was Nathan's press conference indoors when he was about to announce he could fly? What's the sense in killing Nathan and not Matt and Peter, when they can just show the world their powers? Why can't Hiro just go back in time to prevent Nathan from being killed, or why don't they just use Claire's blood (or Peter's?) to save him? And on and on and on it goes. I guess that's the problem of introducing time travel and immortality to a story. Anything can happen so it all seems ridiculous. Still, the show is a blast and I'll be back for the third volume.

Heroes wants you to visit YamagatoFellowship.org

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 27th 2007 5:23PM
HeroesThe second season's of NBC's hit show Heroes may only begin in a month but that doesn't prevent the nice people behind the show for giving us hints about what is to come. The series just launched YamagatoFellowship.org, a new website linked to the show's mythology. This site is dedicated to the Yagamato Fellowship, founded by Kaito Nakamura (played by George Takei) and the famous samurai Takezo Kensei (who will be played by Alias' David Anders).

Is Heroes doing too much, too soon?

I was thinking about this the other day. Even though I named Heroes as the best show of the year, I've been worried lately that season two might turn out to be an over-hyped, overdone disaster that will make me tire of it really quickly. I mean, they're adding cast members at an astonishing rate (Kristin Bell, Nichelle Nichols, David Anders, Stephen Tobolowsky, Janel Parrish, Jessica Collins). They're going to have a storyline in another time (Hiro), produced a spinoff mini-series to be directed by Kevin Smith, produced online stories and comics to keep fans entertained and well-fed and gone on a world tour to promote the show. It's really overwhelming, and I hope they're not doing too much, too soon.

The Boston Globe's Matthew Gilbert is worried too.

More Heroes casting news

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 6th 2007 4:40PM
David AndersCasting news about Heroes have become the trend this summer. The latest is about David Anders and Stephen Tobolowsky.

Weeks before Anders makes his first appearance as legendary samurai Takezo Kensei (the season premiere is supposed to explain how come a blond Caucasian man can play a samurai), Michael Ausiello from TV Guide reports that the actor has been promoted to series regular. The role was first announced to be a recurring one with a possibility to become a regular gig. The actor must have made quite an impression for producers to decide to promote him before seeing how fans will respond to both Anders and the character. Alias fans, and I'm one of them, will rejoice at the news of seeing Anders back on the screen in a regular capacity.

Alias' Sark to join Heroes?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 11th 2007 4:38PM

David AndersObviously I mean the actor, David Anders. But wouldn't it be beyond cool to see the character of Sark show up on Heroes? Maybe he got some sort of power from being so close to all that Rambaldi business. Maybe he can have the power to impersonate anyone's voice exactly (Anders is actually from Oregon but does a British accent perfectly).

Kristin over on E! is reporting that Anders is under negotiations to join the NBC hit this fall. He would play a new character named Kane (Isabelle has details on the character here), though there are no other details about the character. Of course, it's not a done deal, but it would be fantastic if this actually happened.

Alias spin-off with Sloane, Sark and Peyton?

by Keith McDuffee, posted Dec 22nd 2005 11:23PM
sark aliasWhen ABC decided that this was going to be the last season of Alias, J.J. Abrams wasn't in on the discussions. It wasn't until after the decision was made that Abrams was called while filming Mission Impossible 3 in China. While he's not all that surprised at the decision, he is saddened to see it end . . . make that "somewhat" end. Abrams has been discussing the possibility of doing something (spin-off? TV movie?) involving the characters Sark (David Anders), Peyton (Amy Acker) and Sloane (Ron Rifkin). Y'know, I might be OK with that idea, but only if they do something fresh with it; the whole Alias vibe to me is stale.
