David Carradine on FOX's Mental this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 8th 2009 2:27PM
I'm wondering if David Carradine's guest role on this tomorrow's Mental will be met with controversy. Is it exploitative to air this episode so soon after his death? A tribute? Should they shelve it forever? Here's a sneak peek of the episode.

Mental -- An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 25th 2009 10:00AM
Dr. Jack Gallagher (Chris Vance, R) discuses a patient with hospital administrator Nora Skoff (Annabella Sciorra, L) in MENTAL, premiering Tuesday, May 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
During the pilot episode of the new FOX drama Mental, Annabella Sciorra's Dr. Nora Skoff tells Chris Vance's Dr. Jack Gallagher that his recent decision to strip down butt-naked to help a patient deserves some of her Harvard business school advice - ask for royalties because the video of it is sure to be more popular than Paris Hilton's sex tape. To that, I offer some insight from a Syracuse University TV production graduate - there's a reason FOX held off on premiering Mental until the summer. It's not very good.

This summer on FOX: House II

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 27th 2009 6:02PM
FOX logoWho would have thought that this year we'd have two shows on the air with the word "mental" in them?

FOX has announced their summer lineup, and it includes a new medical drama titled House. Oh, sorry, I mean it's called Mental. It's about "a dynamic, young psychiatrist who serves as Director of Mental Health Services at a Los Angeles hospital. At work he must reconcile his effective, yet highly unorthodox treatment methods with his conservative boss, hospital administrator Nora Skoff (Annabella Sciorra), a woman with whom he shares a romantic past. As Gallagher takes on new cases, he is confronted with patients battling unknown, misunderstood and often misdiagnosed conditions." House Mental will star Chris Vance.

Oprah's Chappelle interview online

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 6th 2006 11:44AM
dave chappelleIf you missed Dave Chappelle's appearance on Oprah, don't fret. You can catch the interview online over at You Tube. Since Dave's appearance there's been a lot of speculation about his mental state from armchair critics (wait, I'm one of those) and various opinionated individuals who, through the luxury of hindsight, know exactly what Dave should and shouldn't have done. Maybe I'm going out in a limb here, but I think Dave seemed perfectly normal. The only "abnormal" thing I noticed was that he acted like a regular person, which is rare on television. He didn't always have a direct answer for Oprah's questions, and yes, sometimes he did act nervous. That's how normal people behave. It's not as if we always completely understand why we do what we do, and trying to convey our thoughts to other people can sometimes be extremely difficult. I can't say what's going on inside Dave's brain anymore than anyone else can, but watching him on Oprah felt to me like one of those rare TV moments when someone broke through the inherent phoniness of the medium and actually decided to be themselves, something most television viewers aren't used to seeing. Maybe Dave could have come across better if he had gotten his thoughts in a row ahead of time, but watching him shoot from the hip was far better television.
