Damages: season two - An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 16th 2008 11:14AM
William Hurt, Glenn Close, Tate Donovan, and Rose Byrne all star in season two of FX's Emmy winning drama 'Damages.'
The law/crime genre is a tired and used television landscape. In an era where almost every channel has been saturated with no less than four Law & Order's, three CSI's, and countless other attempts - some good, some bad - it reached a point where it seemed as though we'd seen it all. Then FX premiered Damages back in July 2007 and everything changed. Fast-forward over a year later, add in three history-making Emmy wins, a Golden Globe, and one lingering question remains - how can they possibly re-create the tense past-meets-present plot device that made season one so unique and memorable?

Reaper is finally on the CW's mid-season schedule

by Debra McDuffee, posted Dec 3rd 2008 8:28PM
Ray Wise as the Devil, with the rest of Reaper's castI have to admit, I've been slightly obsessed with checking the mid-season replacement schedule over at The Futon Critic. You see, I've been waiting to find out when one of my favorite shows from last season, Reaper, would be coming back.

Finally, I need wait no more: The CW has finally announced Reaper's timeslot, and it's not half bad. Or, I guess it is half bad, depending on how you look at it.

First things first: it's not on Friday night, which is something I feared because CW's schedule is so wide open on that night. So that's good, right?

What does everyone think of the new Damages promo? - VIDEO

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 6th 2008 11:21AM
Glenn Close stars in FX's 'Damages.'
A few days ago I mentioned that both Nip/Tuck and Damages were returning after the New Year, but no premiere dates were known yet. However, FX has now announced that the highly anticipated second season of the Glenn Close legal thriller will make its sophomore debut on Wednesday, January 7th at 10PM. The network has been running ads for Nip/Tuck for a few weeks now, but this past weekend they released the first of what I'm sure will be many new promos for Damages. I've got a bit of an issue with it though.

Heroes: The Kindness of Strangers

HEROES
(S02E04) "Oh Golly" - Sylar, grade A meanie.


I really want to thank all you guys who sent in such positive feedback on the new format for Heroes reviewcaps. JJ is going to follow a similar structure, as he displayed last week, so we can have some consistency from week to week, episode to episode.

The above quote was one of the single most hilarious moments ever on Heroes, which is usually suffering from too much drama... or more accurately melodrama.

This week saw the introduction of Micah's extended family, the return of a clean-shaved Nathan Petrelli and the answer to who is Molly's monster, so lets get it started.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Seasons 1 & 2 - DVD review

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 3rd 2007 2:01PM
It's always sunny seasons 1 & 2When you think about it, it makes sense that we haven't seen a DVD of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia until now; after all, the first season was only seven episodes, and the show was on the brink of extinction until Danny DeVito joined the cast in season two. So, it was wise of FX to group the first two seasons into one package, which comes out tomorrow (you can get your own copy -- for nothing! -- if you enter the giveaway Keith mentioned earlier today).

Is it worth picking up? Sure; if you're a fan of the show, there's more than enough here to make a purchase worth your while. If you never saw the show but were curious, it's a good way to "catch up" (though this isn't exactly a show where you need to do that, but still...).

Muppet Show season two coming August 7

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 14th 2007 10:24AM
miss piggy; the muppet showAs the ranking #2 fan of The Muppets here at TV Squad (Adam definitely has me beat), I'm happy to announce that season two of The Muppet Show will be available on DVD on August 7th. It's been about 2 years since season one came out on DVD and fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for more.

Season two is a 24-episode set with classic guest appearances by Bob Hope, George Burns, John Cleese, Milton Berle, Elton John, Bernadette Peters and Julie Andrews, just to name a few. The bonus material includes The Muppets Valentine Day Special, a pilot which aired two years before The Muppet Show came on air. It features Kermit and Mia Farrow, and is hosted by little-known Muppet 'Wally'.

Call Dwight Schrute's office voicemail

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 13th 2006 9:17AM
the office castSeason 2 of The Office went on sale at Best Buy yesterday (the website is already sold out). The DVD set is called The Office: Severance Package and it includes some Dunder-Mifflin schwag, including Post-It notes, notepad, pen and magnet, and a calendar. There's also a phone number to Dwight Schrute's voicemail. The message on the voicemail, unfortunately, is not Dwight, but his fictional assistant (which makes the guy the Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager). He explains that Dwight is at a LOTR convention and talks some lingo and then pitches the "oh-so-scorching" and "crazy" deals on paper. It's only marginally entertaining, but here's the number anyway: 1-800-984-DMPC (3672).

Supposedly the Season 2 DVD is great- with bloopers and all sorts of behind-the-scenes extras. I'm kicking myself for not remembering to pick one up yesterday.

Prison Break: Otis

prison break otis
(S02E02) So now the escapees are splitting up even more, which is actually a good thing for us viewers, since there's a lot more potential for better stories along the way. And once again, the writers get cutely creative when it comes to naming their episodes.

I forgot to mention last week that I'm glad someone finally mentioned how idiotic it is that C-Note is looking to see his family and Sucre wants to see his girlfriend. That bugged me all last season, and I'm glad Abruzzi was the one to point it out to everyone.

Desperate Housewives: No One Is Alone

by Keith McDuffee, posted May 14th 2006 10:55PM
desperate housewives(S02E22) I think the best thing about this season is Felicia Tilman. There are a lot of crazy bitches on Wisteria Lane, but who's the craziest? Let's run through them, just from tonight's episode, and see who takes the cake.

Gabrielle -- Is she in the right by reclaiming her palace of a bedroom at the cost of her baby's mother's comfort? She did have a point about her husband already putting their child ahead of the marriage, but sometimes her methods could use some work. Actually, make that all the time.

Veronica Mars: Not Pictured (finale)

by Keith McDuffee, posted May 9th 2006 11:28PM
veronica mars(S02E22) Aren't great finales so bittersweet? I'd been excited to see this episode all day, though at the same time I was sad that the season would be over, and we'd have to A) wait until next Thursday to find out if this show is indeed making it to the CW network, and B) wait for the new season to start.

Though I thoroughly enjoyed this season, I have to admit that most of the reveal of this episode was a tad disappointing. Why? Because a bunch of us guessed this would happen long ago. Well, not all of it, but the "big bad" of the season.

Veronica Mars: Happy Go Lucky

by Keith McDuffee, posted May 2nd 2006 10:57PM
veronica mars(S02E21) Can you feel it? That tension in the air like we felt last season, right before the final episode? Everything's coming together, and still we doubt our assumptions. Do we really know who's behind the bus crash? Were we really right in our guesses about Woody and his pervy ways?

While I'm clearly excited to know how everything goes down next week, this is also when I'm sad to realize that everything's about to end, and we'll have another summer to wait through to see what happens next.

Veronica Mars: Look Who's Stalking

by Keith McDuffee, posted Apr 25th 2006 11:17PM
veronica mars(S02E20) Earlier today I put out the call for new viewers to this show that this was their last chance to catch a plot-ruining-free episode this season. For the most part I was right, though I'm not sure this was the best episode for a newcomer to see. There were a lot of inside jokes that might have gotten lost on someone not familiar with past episodes. With that said though, we were thrown so many new pieces of the big puzzle this week to make even fans' heads spin.

Numb3rs: Guns and Roses

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 22nd 2006 5:42PM

Numb3rs; CBS; Guns and Roses(S02E20) This episode was kind of different. I don't think they've had a case before where Don had a personal/romantic connection to those involved. I'll say this though. I didn't like how they kept pushing the idea that working in any kind of law enforcement (police, FBI, ATF, etc.) is so stressful that suicide is an option for many. I realize a job like that can have it's pressures, but I was surprised that this show took that angle. The unfortunate thing is that there's probably some truth to it so I suppose I'm just eating my own words right there. 

Beyond that gripe, this was a very good episode as usual. There really is no reason why this show couldn't pull it's weight on a night other than Friday. It's better than The Unit and would make a nice pairing with NCIS. But I digress. A former love interest of Don's (she was an ATF agent) commits suicide. But after some crazy mathematical analysis from Charlie, it seems like it may have been a murder.

Veronica Mars: Nevermind the Buttocks

by Keith McDuffee, posted Apr 18th 2006 10:54PM
veronica mars(S02E19) The writers for this show really know how to throw us through enough twists and turns to keep us guessing until the very end. I'm not sure there were nearly this many goings on last season, though as many commenters have pointed out, the likely scenario is that someone we least expect or know about is behind much of what's been going down.

So let's quickly go through what we know from this episode...
