'Game of Thrones' Season 2 Teaser Released, George R.R. Martin Talks 'Beauty and the Beast' Reboot

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 26th 2011 7:15AM
'Game of Thrones' logoHBO provided the tiniest tantalising glimpse of 'Game of Thrones' Season 2 last night for those fans who are starting to feel that winter just can't come soon enough.

"The night is dark and full of terrors." Frankly, there's not much of the teaser to savor, but you can do so after the jump.

Meanwhile, 'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin says he has "mixed feelings" about The CW's planned remake of 'Beauty and the Beast.' Martin served as a writer and producer on the original series, which aired on CBS from 1987 to 1990.

A Mother of an Exclusive: My Chat With 'Chuck's' TV Mom, Linda Hamilton

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 20th 2010 9:45AM
"She is not your ordinary homemaker."

That's Linda Hamilton talking for the first time about her role as Mary Elizabeth Bartowski, matriarch of the spy clan that produced Chuck Bartowski. Viewers will first meet her in 'Chuck's' enjoyable season premiere (8PM ET Monday, NBC), which also features guest stars Dolph Lundgren, Harry Dean Stanton and Olivia Munn.

In an exclusive interview, Hamilton talked for the first time about her return to prime time (if you can believe it, coming back to TV made the 'Terminator' and 'Beauty and the Beast' star nervous), and she also discussed what Mama Bartowski's return will mean for her kids, Chuck and Ellie.

Two decades ago, Mary left her kids with no explanation. But don't expect Mama to bake some cookies by way of an apology.

"It ain't all apologies and sentiment, that's for sure," Hamilton said. "She has her own agenda and it just kind of goes crazy from there."

Linda Hamilton Lands Role on 'Weeds'

by Catherine Lawson, posted May 18th 2010 11:03AM

Linda HamiltonLinda Hamilton, best known for her role as Sarah Connor in 'The Terminator' and 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day', is joining the cast of the award-winning Showtime series 'Weeds'.

The Ausiello Files reports that Hamilton will appear in several episodes of the sixth season, playing an eco-conscious marijuana grower in Seattle, WA, helping out Nancy, who's on the run from Southern California. The role marks Hamilton's first return to episodic TV since 2008's 'The Line' with Sharon Lawrence, and her casting comes after the news that original cast member Elizabeth Perkins is leaving the show had proved unpopular with fans.

Perkins, who has been nominated multiple times for Emmys and Golden Globes for her role as alcoholic mother-of-two Celia Hodes, announced in May 2010 that she would not be returning for the sixth season. Instead, she will be playing James Marsden's mom in the Easter Bunny comedy, 'I Hop,' which is due out in movie theaters next year.

Five boxed sets for Valentine's Day

by Nick Zaino, posted Feb 10th 2009 10:03AM
Beauty and the BeastValentine's Day is on a Saturday this year, so why not eschew the whole dinner and a night out routine for a day in from the cold watching TV boxed sets on DVD? What better gift is there than an entire day of laziness catching up on those boxed sets you got for Christmas and have had no time to watch? But choose carefully. No one can take a whole day of Rock of Love or Matlock.

Beauty and the Beast: The Complete Series - A tolerable "chick flick" type series, you can probably get away with watching just the first two seasons, before Linda Hamilton left and her character was killed off. And once your significant other gets used to the idea of Ron Perlman in Beast make-up, maybe you can convince her to watch Hellboy with you.

Beauty and the Beast comes to DVD

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 2nd 2006 4:03PM
Beauty and the BeastRemember Beauty and the Beast? Ron Perlman as Vincent, the cultured man-lion, falls for savvy assistant DA Catherine played by a pre-buff Linda Hamilton.

The series which began in 1987 had lots of rabid fans, and not just of the romance novel variety. Well, fans, your day has finally come. Beauty and the Beast will be released to DVD on February 13, 2007.

While the official announcement from Paramount hasn't been released, DVD Empire is taking pre-orders.

Now, this is just for the fans. The narration from the opening credits:

Where the hell has Ron Perlman been?

by Joel Keller, posted May 23rd 2006 9:41AM
Ron PerlmanWhen I was looking at the promos for the new ABC movie Stephen King's Desperation, I noticed that the evil Tak was being played by a familiar face: Ron Perlman. You remember Perlman, right? He's done a number of roles as the big lumbering thug on various TV shows, but he's probably best known as playing Vincent on the early-Nineties tearjerker series Beauty and the Beast. But, since some guest starring roles in the early 2000's, we haven't seen his face on TV. What has been doing? Well, he starred as the title character in the movie Hellboy and he's done small parts in various sci-fi movies. But mostly he's been doing voice work for cartoons and video games. Makes sense, since Perlman's got a fairly authoritative set of pipes on him. His IMDb profile goes over what has been a fairly busy period for Perlman.

Good to see him back on TV, though, in a significant role. I always liked him on Beast, except when he was furrily making out with Linda Hamilton. That was just wrong.

Thief: In the Wind (season finale)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 3rd 2006 9:19PM

Thief; F/X; Andre Braugher; Mae Whitman; Photo Credit - Eric Liebowitz(S01E06) Two words: very satisfying. This episode gave you everything you would want from a season finale. There was enough left to keep you hanging, but plenty was tied up in case Thief doesn't return for a full-order second season. I haven't seen any ratings, but I don't think we'll be seeing a return as I got the impression that this show grabbed a small audience. Regardless, this was a fantastic filler to tide F/X fans over as they transitioned from The Shield to Rescue Me (which returns on Tuesday, May 30).

All hell has broken loose. No one in Nick's crew can agree on anything and that fact that the Feds (led by an over-zealous agent named Patterson) are hot on their trail isn't helping either. But as I assumed last week, Nick had to make a choice between the score and Tammi. The reason he had to make such a choice was the real surprise.

Thief: Flight

(S01E05) Oh snap! The heist is on and stuff is not going the way it was planned. However, with all the set-backs, Nick handled things surprisingly well. He even let Jack pray for the team before they took off for the airport. That seemed like a pretty big deal, because after what happened to Wanda, Nick does not seem like the religious type.

Random side note. I didn't realize Jack's nick-name was Bump. This episode, more than others, Nick kept calling him Bump and for a while I had no idea who he was talking about. I had to check out the Thief website in the middle of the show to figure that one out. Guess I need to start paying attention more and it's a good thing I did, because this episode was jam-packed.

Thief: No Direction Home

(S01E04) The first three episodes of this show were spectacular. This episode was even better - it brought the show to a whole new level. Talk about a tense hour. I fell asleep early last night and woke up around five this morning to watch this before I headed off to work. I didn't need to make a pot of coffee. This jolted my eyes open just fine. Everything is coming together for the big heist but at the same time, all the things that are going to get in the way have now been made perfectly clear. The real tension for Nick doesn't seem to be the heist (at least not yet) - it's dealing with Wanda's house, his business, and the step-daughter who doesn't trust him. The dichotomies this show presents are great. Nick is ruthless, but he's a nice guy. He's a professional thief, but he's just like you and me. He's good and evil. Even skin color creates a gap between Nick and Tammi in the incredible last scene of the episode.

Thief: Everything That Rises Must Converge

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 12th 2006 11:13AM

Thief; F/X; Andre Braugher; Photo Credit - Eric Liebowitz(S01E03) Nick Atwater sees dead people. Not exactly the thing you want in your head when you're planning to rob the US Government of $40 million. Keeping up the pace of the last two episodes, the heist is still a go. Nick seems less confident about it though. After all, the crew has only been planning for a week and it all goes down in only eleven more days.

This episode was essentially an obstacle course for Nick and his boys. Everything that's going to get in their way presented itself (or themselves). Let's just say, for this heist to go off smoothly and without a hitch, a lot of things need to fall into place.

Thief: I Ain't Goin' To Jail For Anyone

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 5th 2006 4:05PM

Thief; F/X; Andre BraugherI believe the cliché is, "when the sh*t hits the fan." Seeing as how this first season of Thief is only clocking in at six episodes, it was expected that we would be seeing that happen rather quickly. Last night, it did. There's poo everywhere, and Nick is unfortunately right in the middle of it all.

We left Nick in the wake of his wife's untimely death. To compound things, he had just shot an ex-member of his crew (Izzy) right in his own backyard. And to top it off, his stepdaughter witnessed the killing. His crew disposes of the body but not everyone, Jack especially, is dealing well with what just happened. Interesting angle, right? A thief with a conscience.
