Michael Westen is about to get yet another nemesis

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 29th 2009 5:28PM
Burn NoticeIt seems like everyone is out to get Burn Notice's Michael Westen in one way or another. An old buddy from the spy days will come back to see him and he'll end up being a bad guy, or he'll have other evildoers trying to kill, control and/or blackmail him. Now we have another one coming to the show for four episodes, and it's someone who was in not one but two different recent FOX shows.

That's right, it's Cleveland from Family Guy and The Cleveland Show! OK, that's not true. It's actually someone who was in both Prison Break and Mental.

TV on DVD: Week of June 2

by Katy Kroll, posted Jun 2nd 2009 6:00AM
Here's a taste of what's coming out on DVD this week:

'Prison Break' (The Final Season)

What the Season's About: The title says it all: This is the final season of the fan favorite that was just canceled. While the series had its ups and downs, season 4 was seen as a resurgence as brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) go after the group that destroyed their lives and discover that Michael's love may still be alive.

Special Features: Select episodes come with commentary and there are two featurettes – one about the final episode and one called "Director's World."

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 1st 2009 6:02PM
Fairly OddParentsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I started watching The Fairly OddParents a few years ago and completely fell in love with it. I have a couple of the DVD sets, but I was never sure how the DVD sets were organized. Sometimes they're by a "theme" and sometimes they're by a season or volume. But now we have actual complete season sets for seasons one and two, and I'm really looking forward to having them. Funny, though, how no one can agree whether it's Fairly OddParents or Fairly Odd Parents. I see it spelled both ways everywhere.

I won't be buying the Highlander: The Animated Series set though., There can be only one animated set to buy this week and I'm going with OddParents.

Prison Break: Rate of Exchange / Killing Your Number (series finale)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 15th 2009 10:00PM

Michael (Wentworth Miller, R) dreams of a happily-ever-after with Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies, L) in the PRISON BREAK series finale.
(S04E21/S04E22) "I don't want to run anymore." - Michael

I'm happy that Prison Break is over. I've been a fan since the beginning, and even though it tested your threshold for absurd and ridiculous TV moments on more than one occasion, Prison Break was still one helluva ride. While part of me wishes that it had gone out on a creative high after maybe a season or two, I still appreciate what Paul Scheuring, Matt Olmstead, and Co. tried to do in season three and on some level, I even respect what went down here in the final season - arguably the drama's worst. That being said, tonight's two-hour finale offered some solid closure while wrapping up most everyone's story in ways that actually felt believable.

What to Watch: May 11-17

by Kim Potts, posted May 10th 2009 3:00PM
This week on TV: House and Cuddy's post-kiss aftermath, 'Jersey' girls and big finales for 'Lost' and 'Bones.'

HouseMONDAY, MAY 11
'House' (8PM, Fox) 5th season finale
Well ... that happened. Now that House and Cuddy have finally acted on their long-simmering feelings for each other, they can enjoy a happy relationship, right? Au contraire, because this is House we're talking about, and despite last week's gnarly detox, he still has plenty of demons haunting him, including, yes, Amber. Elsewhere, the good, grumpy doc and company are dealing with a patient whose brain is in a war with itself. The left side's battling the right side for control of his personality, which is making his diagnosis and treatment even more challenging.

'The Big Bang Theory' – 2nd season finale (8PM, CBS)
'Gossip Girl' – No Doubt guest stars (8PM, The CW)
'24' – Kim's baaa-ack (9PM, Fox)
'Charm School With Ricki Lake' – 3rd season premiere (9PM, VH1)
'Castle' – 1st season finale (10PM, ABC)

Prison Break: Cowboys and Indians

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 9th 2009 1:05PM

As time runs out, Michael (Wentworth Miller, R) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell, L) are left with few options to save themselves and Scylla.

(S04E20) "What kind of loser gets set up for two high profile assassinations within five years?" - Lincoln

That's a question I've been asking myself for some time now, except that my query was a bit more broad - what kind of loser gets messed up in this many conspiracies period? Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield (Quick sidebar: different last names. Obviously they weren't brothers.) haven't exactly had it easy, but it's finally starting to look like there might be a light at the end of the tunnel ... at least for Michael anyway.

Who will bite the dust next on Prison Break?

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 4th 2009 1:33PM
Prison BreakIt's no secret, Prison Break is one of those shows that is not afraid to kill characters along the way, even major ones.

Therefore, it will be no surprise to you to learn that more deaths are coming in the final episodes of the series. But did you know that there is one that will be so major that the show's Powers That Be needed to meet face-to-face with the network to get approval?

Curious as to who may bite the dust by series' end? Want to speculate on how it will happen?

Extreme spoilers follow! You've been warned.

Prison Break: S.O.B.

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 2nd 2009 2:20PM

Michael (Wentworth Miller, L) and Christina (Kathleen Quinlan, R) have an uneasy reunion.

(S04E19) "Maybe I can meet my grandson one day." - Cristina

With only three original hours left in Prison Break's run (not counting the two hour telepic that may or may not air), it's about time we got some solid answers. Despite her plea saying otherwise, I feel pretty confident now in believing that Cristina ain't one of the good guys. While General Krantz isn't much better, he's starting to look like a saint compared to Michael and Lincoln's mother.
