by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 13th 2011 7:30PM

Penny Johnson JeraldWith the death of Capt. Montgomery in the 'Castle' season finale (uh, two-month late spoiler alert), the ABC cop-show-with-a-twist is getting a brand-new boss -- a woman.

According to TV Guide, former '24' star Penny Johnson Jerald will head up the 12th Precinct as Victoria Gates, whom the site describes as "a career-minded cop who spent much of her early career in Internal Affairs."

Contrary to Castle's buddy-buddy relationship with Montgomery, the writer and his detective shadow-ee, Beckett, will butt heads with the no-nonsense boss.

'Happy Town' - 'In This Home on Ice' Recap

Happy Town
(S01E01) "A well man doesn't put a hole in another man's head." - Sheriff

Every single review is going to compare 'Happy Town' with 'Twin Peaks.' This isn't just because both shows involve mysterious goings on with mysterious characters in a small town, it's because ABC itself has been driving the point home in all of its marketing for the show. "From the network that brought you 'Twin Peaks ..." I don't really understand why they're mentioning a TV show that ran on their network over 20 years ago, but maybe they feel they have to connect it to something cultish and beloved.

Is it like that show? I guess. A little. It has that small town mystery vibe. It also has dashes of 'Harper's Island' and 'Salem's Lot,' but those ran on CBS so I guess they can't mention them in the ads.

'Happy Town' Stars Talk Being Bad, Strange Goings-On & Secrets (VIDEO)

Don't let the name fool you -- 'Happy Town' has more kidnappings, murders and mysterious residents than a slasher flick. But star Lauren German is adamant about one thing: "It's not a horror show." "But it's certainly thrilling," her costar Sam Neill adds with a smile.
I sat down with German, Neill, Steven Weber, Amy Acker and Geoff Stults to get the scoop on their new show (premieres Wed., April 28, 10PM ET on ABC). "There's lots of strange goings-on in Haplin," teases Weber. "And strange people," Acker chimes in.

Watch our full interview to hear more about Haplin, its residents and ... Charo as a guest star? OK, it's not that strange.

From the network that gave you a show 20 years ago, here's Happy Town

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 17th 2009 9:14AM
I roll my eyes a bit when a network has to go back about 20 years for a reference that ties into a new show. From the network that gave you Twin Peaks, comes a new town: Haplin, Minnesota. Hey, this show's about a town too! This one is also a mystery, about someone called "The Magic Man," who kidnapped several children years earlier and now might be back and behind a murder and another kidnapping. This has Amy Acker and Dean Winters in it, so I'm definitely going to check it out.
