Lindsey Vonn Lands Bit Role on 'Law & Order'

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 1st 2010 2:09PM
Lindsey_Vonn_cropped_head Was that a real moment between Bob Costas and Lindsey Vonn during the NBC coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics on Saturday night ... or just a typical cross promotion for the Peacock network? You be the judge.

The gold medal winning American downhill ski champion, one of the darlings of the Vancouver games, appeared with Costas. At the end of the interview, Bob reminded Lindsey that she's the biggest 'Law & Order' fan in the world. Lindsey didn't deny it. She said it was true and the video they showed of her visiting the set and gushing about the show looked very sincere.

Access Hollywood remains stupid, sleazy

by Bob Sassone, posted May 11th 2009 12:03PM
If we're going to have inane, sleazy, stupid shows like Access Hollywood on TV, it's good to have shows like The Soup, too. Here Joel McHale takes on Access Hollywood and their coverage last week of that story where a Britney Spears fan jumped on stage and scared the hell out of her. It actually makes you feel sorry for Spears.

Sam Micelli lives on in Alyssa Milano's Dodgers blog

Alyssa MilanoIn response to Bob's post about celebrity blogs, one of our readers, Galley, suggested we check out Alyssa Milano's blog on MLB.com. So, being a fan of baseball and an, uh, "admirer" of Milano, I decided to go over and check it out.

Essentially a promotional vehicle for her line of women's baseball wear, the blog shows that Milano -- a Dodgers season ticket holder -- really does know her stuff. She quotes venerable Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, and speaks about her team with the same passion and attention to detail as Sal from Brooklyn or any of the Joe Six-Packs that call into sports radio shows across the country.

A Muppet podcast worth checking out

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 15th 2007 10:03AM

muppetsThe MuppetCast is not a podcast created by the Jim Henson company like the one I mentioned back in August, but rather a simple love letter to the Muppets from Steve Swanson, a longtime fan. In many ways, that makes it better than the other, "official" podcast because it's not simply a plug for upcoming projects from Jim Henson Studios. There's nothing wrong with updates on what's happening, but it's cool for a Muppet fanatic like myself to sit back and listen to someone who loves them as much as I do.

I love Battlestar, stop talking about Battlestar

battlestar galacticaRecently I decided to see what all this Battlestar Galactica noise was about and Netflixed the first couple seasons. As of this writing I'm about midway through the second season and I have to say that yes, it is as good as people say. I don't mean it's good by the sometimes lower standards of other sci-fi fare, I mean it's just a good television program period. Consider me frakking converted.

Steve Coogan joins Curb Your Enthusiasm cast

by Julia Ward, posted Mar 7th 2007 3:34PM
Steve CooganSteve Coogan, creator of enduring BBC comedy character Alan Partridge and director Michael Winterbottom's apparent muse, is joining the cast of Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm as a psychiatrist. According to the ever reliable and always tasteful Sun, Coogan is a huge fan of the show and jumped at the chance to play opposite David.

If you haven't seen Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story or Knowing Me, Knowing You... Alan Partridge, I must insist that you leave TV Squad immediately, join Netflix and get started on your own personal Coogan marathon. It's rare that I say this about anyone media-related other than Joss Whedon, but the man is a genius. My fandom cannot be stopped.

Pricey Star Trek catalog on sale

Shatner as KirkNot too long ago I mentioned an upcoming auction at Christie's for tons of Star Trek memorabilia. If you're a Trekkie, or Trekker, or Trekhead or whatever you call yourselves these days, and you happen to have $90 burning a hole in your pocket you can try to pick up a 500-page pre-auction catalog that contains pictures and information on the 4,000 items being placed on the auction block. Some items include a model of the Enterprise and DeForest Kelley's mummified corpse. Only 10,000 of the catalogs were printed, and contain information written by Michael and Denise Okuda, who also worked on both the TV series and feature films.

Joking Apart fan releases DVD himself

by Adam Finley, posted May 23rd 2006 2:53PM

joking apartIf you've never heard of the cult TV series Joking Apart, join the club, because I've never heard of it either. Of course, I don't live in the UK. Apparently, however, it was created by Steven Moffat as a precursor to his more popular show Coupling. The BBC comedy, however, was never released on DVD, at least not until a fan named Craig Robins bought the rights to the show himself. Robins also works in television as an editor, so the DVD, which will be available on May 28, is said to have a very "professional" look to it. The series ran from 1995 to 1997 on BBC2, but was eclipsed at the time by more popular fare.
