The Shield: Baptism By Fire

(S06E02) As I was watching this episode I couldn't help but think how ironic it was how Kavanaugh went out of his way to make Mackey look sloppy, when I think Kavanaugh was being the sloppy one all along. How long could he keep up that charade? How long could he keep Amoya under his control and not looking incredibly suspicious?

Meanwhile, as Kavanaugh continues his witch hunt against Mackey (it does feel like a witch hunt, doesn't it?), Vic continued a witch hunt of his own. Though Vic was into being the judge and jury, Kavanaugh was just playing judge.

The Shield season six -- An early look

Recently Jonathan and I got on the phone with The Shield's Walton Goggins, but if you read the interview you'll note we hadn't yet seen the first six episodes released to the press. Having now seen those episodes, I think our line of questioning would have been quite different.

Angel fans may finally get closure with new comic books

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 19th 2007 2:01PM

AngelI would never have seen a single episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel if I hadn't recently lived with some friends who were huge fans of both series. I could never get into Buffy, but I did like Angel, and was more than a little perturbed to find out the series ended abruptly with no real resolution at all.

The first fifteen minutes of The Shield's new season

by Keith McDuffee, posted Feb 15th 2007 9:03AM
the shield lem casketJonathan mentioned a few weeks ago that Bud TV would be debuting a sort of "bridge episode" of The Shield. The 15-minute short is now available for viewing on the site, and after viewing it I'd say it plays a lot more like the first fifteen minutes of the new season premiere.

For those who are sad to see Lem gone from the series, this short video will only make you hate what Shane did with even more passion. Read on for a short rundown of what goes on in the video (image to the right is a little teaser for you).

American Idol: San Antonio auditions

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Feb 7th 2007 12:04AM
Baylie Brown(S06E07) We're in San Antonio, Texas, home of the Alamo. There's lots of history at this location, but will we make American Idol history tonight?

It's the last stop on this year's audition tour, and what a tour it's been. I'm beat. I'm ready to wrap up these auditions and move on to the real competition. But first we see 11,000 people packed into the Alamo Dome as the Rawhide theme plays. An interesting tidbit: The Rawhide theme was originally sung by 1950s crooner Frankie Laine, who died today at the age of 93.

Back in San Antonio, the judges arrive, and Simon is cranky and suffering from jet lag. Poor Simon.

Smallville: Crimson

Crimson - Smallville love-fest

(S06E13)
Valentine's Day comes to Smallville about two weeks before the rest of the country. Why can't these episodes come on closer to the actual date of the holiday? Okay, I'm griping too much. We've got the return of Red Kryptonite, and it's about darn time. It comes at the right time, too ... given the fact that Lois has gotten a bit itchy in her relationship with Oliver Queen, and Lana is about to go fully over to the dark side and marry Lex Luthor, not to mention have his baby. That's getting a bit too close to the whole Anakin/Padme relationship, ain't it?

The whole little Zoltar machine slash Gypsy slash matchmaker woman who just gives Lois the magical lipstick was wayyyyy to much of a plot device for me. It's like the writers were in a post-Chinese food coma and decided to just have some character waltz in and hand it over. Was it too convenient? Am I griping about the small stuff too much again? Most likely. Granted, the alternative was probably having a department of LuthorCorp working on cosmetics, and some wacky scientist decides to add meteor rocks and yadda yadda yadda. K-powered shampoo and shaving gel for the world.

Smallville: Labyrinth

by Kevin Kelly, posted Jan 26th 2007 12:34AM
The Clark of Oz. It's all in your head.
(S06E12)
Or as I like to call it, "The Martian Manhunter Show!" All Martians, all the time. Either that, or "One Flew Over the Clark Kent's Nest," except we didn't get a Nurse Ratchett, unfortunately. You can tell right from the beginning that this is all taking place in Clark's mind, so it has the ring of "ripoff" to me. Basically, it's like holodeck episode of Star Trek: TNG. Although some good things came out of those (Dixon Hill, Moriarty, Minuet) so I'm not going to declare full shenanigans ... maybe only halfsies.

Someone needs to YouTube together all of the scenes of Clark working on farm equipment and make it a commercial for Clark's Tractor Repair. We must have seen him work on that thing a million times, but I don't remember him ever turning over any soil in the north forty. What gives, Smallville? The writers need to think about dropping the whole Kent Farm charade and just have them live on the land. Martha's a senator, which must pay fairly decent wages, right?

American Idol: Four days until season six begins

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Jan 12th 2007 9:21AM
American Idol JudgesOnce upon a time, January was just a long cold month that filled me with regret and longing. I regretted the holiday over-eating and over-spending. And longed for warmer weather and something (anything) to distract me from the bleakness of winter.

In 2003, that all changed. Season 2 of American Idol appeared on the horizon giving me -- and the rest of America -- HOPE. Now, every January, American Idol triumphantly returns with blaring trumpets and great spectacle to awaken the American viewing public out of our winter stupor.

The Apprentice: Los Angeles: To Have and Have Not (season premiere)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 7th 2007 11:17PM

Donald Trump greets the 18 candidates in front of his Los Angeles mansion.

(S06E01) I'm not sure I'm sold on The Apprentice moving to Los Angeles. It sounds stupid, but it boils down to little things for me. Things that feel different that I liked about New York. For instance, remember the way a fired contestant would exit New York? Hop into a cab. It's not the same in Los Angeles. A chauffeured towncar service? It just feels weird to me. That's the best way I can describe it. For most of my thoughts on the premiere and this season in general, check out this Early Look post that I wrote a few weeks ago. However, I've watched the episode again and I've got some fresh thoughts after the jump.

Production begins on sixth season of Family Guy

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 5th 2007 4:03PM

seth macfarlaneTwo and a half months ago, when negotiations between 20th Century Fox and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane reached a standstill, the writers for the series were told not to report to work. According to Variety, the suits at 20th Century Fox didn't want to stop production midway because a deal was never solidified, despite the fact MacFarlane's contract wasn't up for several months.

Vivica A. Fox joins Curb Your Enthusiasm

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 4th 2006 4:51PM

Vivica A. Fox will be joining the cast of Curb Your Enthusiasm for the show's sixth season, which kicks off next year. According to Hollywood Reporter, there's not much information, though information points to Fox playing the member of a black family who moves into the David's home after a natural disaster. So there you go, Vivica A. Fox will be playing a black woman, and frankly, I couldn't be happier. I was starting to grow tired of seeing her constantly playing an elderly Chinese man.

The storyline is meant to spoof the events of Hurricane Katrina, as well as race relations. I imagine we can look forward to Larry saying something incredibly inappropriate. The article doesn't mention whether Fox's character will stay on the show or whether she'll only be part of this specific storyline.

FOX might sell first four episodes of 24's next season on DVD

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 22nd 2006 7:02PM
24 logoInteresting bit of news from the Watching 24 blog, if it's true...

FOX is thinking very seriously about marketing a DVD that contains the first four episodes of the upcoming season of 24. The rumor is the DVD is scheduled to come out on Tuesday, January 16, which the day after the two-day, four-hour season premiere airs on FOX. The price will be $14.95.

Like the Watching 24 folks, I think this is an intriguing marketing experiment, but am not sure why FOX is doing this. Do they think the DVD will stem the tide of downloading via BitTorrent and other services? Why would fans pay half the price of a full season just to see four episodes? And won't fans of the show just wait until the entire season comes out on DVD and buy it then? If FOX succeeds in selling a lot of copies of this disc, I wonder if other networks are going to follow suit?

HBO extends Sopranos final season

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 20th 2006 6:33PM

The Sopranos: Season 6, Part 1By one episode. Hey, it's better than nothing! This was confirmed by Steve Schirripa over the weekend while he was being interviewed at the recent Comic Relief show. Schirripa, who plays Bobby Baccala, didn't have much to say other than the first six episodes are done and he's still alive and kicking.

So this means that the second half of the HBO mob drama's sixth and final season will have nine episodes instead of eight. The series returns on April 8 (wouldn't surprise me in the least if that changed again) and if you're looking to play catch up you can see the first half of the season right now on HBO OnDemand. Either that or you can check out the DVD, which just came out recently. Whichever method you choose, prepare to be let down. I know myself, along with plenty of other Sopranos fans, were sorely disappointed with the first 12 episodes of this season. Here's to hoping that the final nine are worth the wait.

New season six trailer for 24!

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 24th 2006 6:55PM
24 logoLet the 24 hype begin! Today, Fox released a new trailer for season six of 24 and it looks pretty damn good. I've watched the show before and haven't liked it, but the trailer kinda makes me curious. It seems different than before-- with all hell breaking loose on the streets of America and Jack Bauer reaching superhero status. I don't want to ruin it for you, so I will just give you these few notes: Jack has a beard, Chloe is wearing a suit, and Fox Newschannel is already getting lots of product placement. Season six of 24 premieres Sunday and Monday, January 14 & 15 at 8 pm.

Go watch it here and tell me what you think.
