'Pan Am' Cast On Nipple-High Pants & Why You Should Give the Show Another Try

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 2nd 2011 12:05PM
Pan Am Cast Interviews'Pan Am' is on the bubble -- a very stylish bubble.

Rumors of the show's cancellation spread like wildfire after star Karine Vanasse took to Twitter and said she received "the call." But the show is safe for the time being, according to a statement from ABC affirming the network's commitment to air all 14 episodes of Season 1 and confirming that it is still being considered for renewal.

"It's only going to get better," Christina Ricci told AOL TV during a visit to the show's New York set in early November. "It's just our first [season]. We're still trying things out and figuring out what works and what doesn't. I feel like we're just going to get better and better."

'Pan Am' Cast Previews Sunday's Action-Packed Episode

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 11th 2011 1:30PM
Take four very spirited stewardesses, two manly pilots, a hostile war zone and tropical storm conditions and mix them together. What do you get? 'Unscheduled Departure,' an action-packed episode of 'Pan Am' (Sun., Nov. 13, 10PM ET on ABC).

"This is actually my favorite episode," Margot Robbie told AOL TV on the New York set of the ABC drama. "I think it's my favorite episode so far. Berlin, I really, really love, but this one I literally couldn't put the script down, and I'm not just saying that."

Unscheduled Departures Pan Am Preview

In 'Unscheduled Departures,' the crew encounters serious turbulence -- both inside and outside the plane -- on the way to Caracas, Venezuela. A passenger suffers a heart attack and it turns out there's no doctor on board the flight. Ted (Michael Mosley) and Colette (Karine Vanasse) venture out on their own to find help.

'Scrubs' - 'Our Thanks' Recap (Season Finale)

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 18th 2010 11:10AM
'Scrubs' - 'Our Thanks'(S09E13) Considering ABC decided to burn off the last two episodes of 'Scrubs' largely unannounced, and especially because they decided to lead off a night of reruns with the season finale, there isn't much hope that we're going to see another season.

That's too bad, since this new ensemble has come together quite nicely. Is 'Scrubs Med School' as gut-grabbing funny as the original series? Absolutely not. But what we ended up with are a group of likable characters and storylines that left viewers anxious to see more from. There still needed to be adjustments made, but the season (and probably series) finale showed me that they were on the way to addressing most of the issues.

'Scrubs' - 'Our Driving Issues' Recap

John C. McGinley & Eliza Coupe, 'Scrubs'
(S09E12)
With our illustrious leader away on a covert mission for the state (you didn't hear that from me), I agreed to step in for this penultimate episode of 'Scrubs.' Hopefully, he'll be back in time for next week's finale as it may be his last chance. Still no word on the fate of 'Scrubs' 2.0 beyond these two episodes; I suspect ABC is holding out just in case ratings go up with the show as part of their successful "ABC Comedy Wednesday" block.

The episode itself was a bit of a mixed bag. I'm still just not able to get into Cole as a character. He's far too cartoonish for my tastes. At least J.D.'s antics were tempered by the sense that he was a person we could believe in, while Cox showed a vulnerable side underneath all his venom. I'm still struggling to believe in Cole as a sympathetic character.

Luckily, some moves were made to correct that as the episode wound down. Words of wisdom from one Bob Kelso making the difference in that one; what an interesting progression Kelso's character has had over the seasons.

Review: Scrubs - Our Dear Leaders

Michael Mosley and John C. McGinley in Scrubs: Our Dear Leaders(S09E11) Just like with Better Off Ted, there doesn't seem to be any sign that the final two episodes of Scrubs are going to air any time soon. One was supposed to air tonight, but got yanked. One might air next Wednesday, but evidence is conflicting.

If this is the last episode we see, then, that'll be a shame, because this was the best one of the season. We saw a lot of growth by all the characters, even the ones that we've seen on our screens for nine years. But mostly, we saw exactly what the new Scrubs could be if given time: a great ensemble comedy that brings the funny on a consistent basis.

Review: Scrubs - Our Stuff Gets Real

Scrubs: Our Stuff Gets Real
(S09E09) While the illustrious boss-man -- AKA Joel Keller -- is off at the TCA Tour stalking creator Bill Lawrence, I have the honor of stepping in and looking at the latest episode of Scrubs. J.D. returned this week, and the opening sequence slipped back to having him hang the final x-ray, rather than Lucy, who took over the last couple of episodes.

With J.D. back, the silliness between him and Turk returned as well, but it didn't dominate the episode as it so often has in the past. It was also nice to see the old Elliot in full neurotic meltdown mode. Plus, the scene at home where she was scarfing down her meat salad instead of making sweet love to J.D. was almost too authentic to real life with a pregnant woman. It was nice to see J.D. being supportive, if frustrated. And at least Cox is there to support his neediness.

Review: Scrubs - Our New Girl-Bro

Sarah Chalke and Kerry Bishe in Scrubs: Our New Girl-Bro(S09E06) Wow. Just wow.

I knew the first Zach Braff-free episode of this new version of Scrubs was going to be a bit of a bumpy ride, but I didn't think things would be this bad.

It's not just that the episode was lacking in funny. The established characters were mostly written wrong, exhibiting characteristics we've never really seen before. And the med students -- except for Drew -- were so broadly written that they could have been played by anybody.

No wonder why this episode was buried on New Year's Day.

Review: Scrubs - Our Mysteries

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 23rd 2009 6:45PM
Zach Braff and Donald Faison in Scrubs: Our Mysteries(S09E05) Sorry this one is late, folks. Sometimes life intervenes before you get to see your favorite shows...

Can you blame me? Given the low ratings and the fact that ABC has decided to blow out all 13 episodes by the end of January, it seems like this is the last we're going to see of the Scrubs: Med School gang, unless the show gets yet another last-minute reprieve. So it's tough for me to get too attached to this new set of characters.

But that may be a good thing. If what we saw last night was any indication of how things are going to be once the med students are carrying the show, it's in trouble.

Review: Scrubs - Our Histories

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 16th 2009 11:01AM
Sam Lloyd, Kate Miccuci, and Ken Jenkins in Scrubs: Our Histories(S09E04) It was good to see an episode that had a bit more of a balance between the old and the new. Yes, we concentrated a lot on the J.D./Turk "Bro-a-Palooza" and Ted's departure from Sacred Heart. But we also got a fair amount of the students working together.

Do Lucy and Cole still need a little bit more of a personality infusion? Sure. But it's hard to keep up comedically with characters who have been developed over the last eight years. This episode gives me hope that eventually they're going to be able to stand on their own.

Review: Scrubs - Our Role Models

John C. McGinley in Scrubs: Our Role Models(S09E03) Since I saw the first two episodes via screener, this is the first time I got to see the "[Med School]" subtitle in the opening credits. Wow, talk about barely there... if you blinked, you missed it. I guess it's better than not having it there at all, but wow; it's as if ABC is really trying hard to tie this show to the original Scrubs.

I felt a little odd watching this episode. By all objective measures, it was a good episode; funny, good story, lots of glimpses into the characters' personalities. But, as in the first two episodes, most of the good stuff involved the old cast, mainly Zach Braff. And, since this is supposed to work more as a transition to a new show than more of the old show, this trend is getting me worried.

Review: Scrubs - Our Drunk Friend

Kerry Bishe and John C. McGinley in Scrubs: Our Drunk Friend(S09E02) Here is where we see glimpses of what Scrubs: Med School could be. Lucy gets too involved with a case. Denise opens up -- well, at least as much as she can open up -- to Drew. Cole being Cole. Cox overseeing everything with his lit-on-fire rantings.

But they're just glimpses. As in the premiere, the more memorable stuff was from the old crew and how they interacted with each other. The most troubling part of that was J.D., or, more accurately, the Two J.D.s.

Review: Scrubs - Our First Day of School (season premiere)

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 1st 2009 10:02PM
Kerry Bishe in Scrubs: Our First Day of School(S09E01) As much as I want to treat Scrubs: Med School as a new series, let's face it: The show is listed everywhere as being Scrubs' ninth season. So that's the way I'm going to treat it until told otherwise. Sound good to you folks?

Anyway, my preview of this new iteration of Scrubs pretty much gave the entire setup, so we can mercifully skip past that and just talk about what was funny, and what wasn't.

Oh, and for those of you who are still hanging on to the story thread that is the Elliot / J.D. relationship, you'll be happy to know that everything's fine there. More after the jump.

Scrubs season nine -- An early look

Eliza Coupe, Donald Faison and Zach Braff in Scrubs: Our Drunk Friend
If you're a regular reader of TV Squad, you probably already know what's going on with the unexpected ninth season of Scrubs. From Bill Lawrence's statement that the eighth season might not be the final one to his detailed descriptions of how the show was going to transition to its new med school setting, you've been given a good idea of how this shift was going to happen.

But one thing we didn't know was the biggest question of all: is it going to be funny?

The answer? A qualified yes. The two episodes ABC sent for review, which air back-to-back tomorrow at 9 PM ET, were definitely funny. But most of the humor came not from the new med students we're supposed to get to know, but from the characters we've known and laughed with for eight years. And for this ninth season to succeed, that ratio will have to even out, and quickly.

The cast is complete for the new and improved(?) Scrubs

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 20th 2009 4:24PM
Kerry BisheIn Bill Lawrence's interview with our own Joel Keller, he said: "There's going to be a new young lady with a voice over and she's either going to be funny and talented and great, or the show's gonna crater."

Well, now we know who that young lady is and I'm sure Kerry Bishe (Virtuality) will be thrilled to find out that Lawrence is hinging the entire success of Scrubs 2.0 on her. No pressure! She joins Dave Franco, cast earlier this week, and Michael Mosley to complete the new faces of Scrubs (Med School?).

Besides being the new narrative voice for the show, and presumably the lead, Bishe will be a 22-year old first-year med student. She's the first in her family of fisherman to go to college. Mosley, the other new cast member signed today, is ten years older than the rest of the students, the result of a major meltdown a decade earlier when he was at Harvard. So this is his second chance.

NYTVF: Photos of the Kidnapped premiere and party

NYTVF Party
Folks, I never got into this job to be a red carpet/party reporter. I'm not good in noisy crowds of people I don't know, and I'm especially not good at fighting other people to be heard in a group. But when I found myself on the press side of the red carpet for the premiere of NBC's Kidnapped last night, I tried to do my best.

The red carpet consists of whatever stars are coming to the premiere slowly walking down a procession of press people: first they pose for photographers, then they talk to television and other video outlets, then they answer questions from lowly print outlets like us. I decided to hang out at the end of the line and catch what I could, since I'd also be going to the screening and the afterparty (which also doubled as the NYTVF launch party). And since I was on the Kidnapped set a few weeks ago (that post is in the works), there wasn't much more to ask the principals that I hadn't already. But it was still an interesting evening. After the jump, a few pictures of my night.
