Sonny's portrayer, Maurice Benard, thinks it is. He told Michael Logan, "I truly believe Sonny's done this time. He wants his son to be safe and he sees no other way out. ...He doesn't think he can get away with it this time -- at least that's the way I'm playing it."
The Prison Break spinoff idea was put on the back burner and most of us thought it would never happen after all. However, a casting call for PB's episode 4.23 makes me think that FOX is going forward with the spinoff set in a prison for women, especially now that Prison Break has been cancelled. Or they at least want to test the idea before making their final decision.
Spoilers for episode 4.23 and potential Prison Break spinoff coming up!
I watched this episode with my best friend, and she said, "If you like vampire smut, you kind of have to like this show." And we both like vampire smut. One other difference between my friend and me and Rich Keller is that we think Mick St. John is good-looking enough to tune to in every Friday night when we have nothing else to do. That might not be the greatest criteria in the world, but I don't understand why people tune in and watch Desperate Housewives week after week, so there you go.
William H. Macy is set to star in the TNT series Family Man.
This is the third TNT project Macy has been involved with, having already co-written (with writing partner Steven Schachter) the Emmy-winning Door to Door and The Wool Cap.
Family Man, which Macy also wrote with Schachter, focuses on the life of a man who gives to charity but also steals from major corporations. According to Variety, the series is told in "flash forward" fashion in which we see Macy imprisoned in the future. Sounds like kind of a modern take on the Robin Hood story to me.
There's no word yet on when the series will air.
We told you yesterday about the new shows that NBC unveiled at their upfront, and now video previews of the new shows have made their way onto the web.
After the jump are previews for the new shows The Bionic Woman, Journeyman, Life, and Chuck, along with my quick notes on what I think based on these little snippets. Those legs above aren't exactly sexy. Maybe that's just a temporary state.
But seriously, everything that happened in this episode was entirely predictable -- about 10 seconds in advance. Earl hooks up with the deaf lawyer. Saw that coming, a few seconds before it happened. Deaf lawyer dumps Earl after taking a closer look at his list. I needed about 15 seconds for that one. Earl makes a sacrifice to help Joy. Not too surprising.
Garrison, 26, played "Tweener" on Prison Break, but his character was killed off earlier this season. If convicted, he could face up to ten years in actual prison.
The Aryan Brotherhood is a network of white power groups that began in the California prison system and is now spread throughout several other state prisons. The group consists of men who are trained to kill efficiently and mercilessly and control the drug trade. On March 4 at 8:00pm, Explorer: Aryan Brotherhood will go inside these prisons to give a first-hand look at how the group operates, and also delve into efforts by law enforcement to stop the Brotherhood, which boasts at least one former member who claims to have killed twenty-two of his fellow inmates.
Way back in September of 2005 I mentioned a non-existent reality series created by a Hollywood producer in order to scam investors out of millions of dollars. The alleged reality series, DHS: The Series, was to focus on the Department of Homeland Security. No such series ever existed, and Joseph Medawar, the producer behind the scam, was sentenced last month to one year in prison.
Alison Ann Heruth, who lied in interviews saying she would both act in and co-produce the series, was given five years probation. She was recently sentenced to ten days in jail for violating the terms of her probation, which included paying $250 in retribution once a month.
Any takers on how long until this whole fiasco gets turned into a made-for-TV movie?
(S03E09) After watching Michael Scott "transform" himself into "Prison Mike," I was so enthralled by it that I've decided to rent Scared Straight from Netflix. I remember watching that documentary back in the 70s when I was a teenager, and I thought it was so over the top that I remember laughing all the way through it. Of course, if I was sitting in that room with those convicts in Rahway, I might have gotten smacked around a bit. But the idea of "lifers" telling kids how to not be like them is just too much grist for the comedy mill.
In his letters, Hatch says that the first six months of incarceration were awful. There were reports he was being held in segregation for his own safety, but what the reports didn't say--and what Hatch claims--is that 51 other rapists, murderers, and pedophiles were segregated along with him from the general prison population. Now Hatch is in a lovely prison compound that kind-of sounds like Martha Stewart's camp cupcake. He's in West Virginia, in a wilderness setting where there is all sorts of wildlife. And he's teaching fellow inmates study skills and helping them search for jobs. Most of all, he's miserable without his spouse, Emiliano Cabral (they were married in Canada before the trial). "Emi", as Hatch calls him, has moved back to his native Argentina because his American visa only allows for six-month stays.
Hatch says he does plan to appeal his conviction and he also says the prosecuting attorneys lied about him on several occasions during the trial. The court is expected to decide whether to hear the case in 2007.
(S02E01) Damn, I love when the fall season starts up again! And what makes it even sweeter is having things start with a show I'm a fan of, regardless of how much I seem to consistently bash it. Case in point -- I was really bothered by how this episode started out. It's as though everything we saw at the end of the first season was forgotten. The escapees were last seen running across an totally open field at night, with helicopters and multitudes of law enforcement hot on their heels. And now we open with the inmates running through the woods, in the daytime, with no choppers in sight. In fact, so few police were chasing the crew that they're able to get away by ducking around a passing train. Grrrr! How I wish to hate thee, Prison Break!
