Moving Bones to Thursday nights was not a good idea

by Richard Keller, posted Feb 25th 2009 6:11PM

Moving Bones to Thursday nights was not a good idea for the seriesHere's why: it now languishes on my DVR for days afterward. When it aired on Wednesday nights I would either watch it live or immediately after I put the kids to bed. It was appointment television for both my wife and me; something that we could get together for after a day of work and children and basic mayhem.

Now that FOX switched the show to Thursdays it doesn't have the same importance as it once did. Instead it gets superseded by the other "Must See" shows of the evening. Because there's so much to see that night the DVR gets loaded up with those shows as well, pushing Bones lower in the queue. Then Friday comes around and we watch the other shows, plus that night's entries. With Saturday and Sunday being so busy with life in general I don't get enough time to clear out the DVR queue. By the time the next new episode of Bones airs my wife and I haven't even watched the previous week's episode.

Lost season 4 poster

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jan 19th 2008 3:01PM
LostThe season four premiere of ABC's hit series Lost is less than two weeks away. For weeks, fans have been looking for everything and anything to chew on in order to cope with the wait. ABC helped fans trough the withdrawal with those Missing Pieces mobisodes (the first one was awful but the others ones were pretty cool and even gave some explanations as to what happened between some scenes and episodes), the season four trailer (short and long versions), the 8:15 recap, and the viral marketing campaign that included a sort of online hunt. The latest piece of the puzzle? The season four poster.

Now on iTunes: Great Shows You May Have Missed

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 13th 2007 1:24PM
friday night lightsThe folks over at iTunes have created this handy list for people who want to spend some time this summer catching up on the television shows that don't get as much buzz (anything that's not Lost, Grey's Anatomy, 24). The list includes full seasons of Friday Night Lights, Jericho, 30 Rock, The Shield, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, The Riches, Dirt and Eureka. Also? You can bask in the glory of hastily canceled shows like Andy Barker, P.I., Veronica Mars, and The Black Donnellys. Oh, and Studio 60 is on there, but I wouldn't call that a "hastily" canceled show. (The current--and final--season of The Loop is also on iTunes, though it's not on the 'Missed' list)

This is a great idea. Many of the shows listed get a lot of buzz on sites like ours (because our readers know good television), but the general population doesn't seem to catch on. If only How I Met Your Mother would get on iTunes... it could definitely use some more fans as it heads into season 3.

Lost gets three more seasons

by Anna Johns, posted May 7th 2007 10:01AM
lost castThis morning, ABC announced that Lost will get three more seasons, but only 48 more episodes. That means each season will have only 16 episodes, as opposed to the traditional, full-season run of 22-23 episodes. Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof have agreed to stick around for the final three seasons and guide the show to the ending that they want. (Each guy is reportedly getting an 8-figure deal to stick around) Of course, nothing is being said about which actors will be on the show that long.

This new end point pushes about 20 more episodes out of Cuse and Lindelof than they had hoped. Last January, the producers said they saw the show wrapping up at about episode 100, but the new deal pushes Lost's entire run to 120 episodes.

Lost fans, are you willing to wait three more years for answers? Seems like a long time...

NBC picks up Heroes for entire season

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 6th 2006 10:11AM
heroesWhile NBC is apparently giving up on Kidnapped, it has given a full season commitment to Heroes. The sci fi drama has averaged about 13.5 million viewers in its first two episodes, while poor Kidnapped only had about 7 million per episode. Critics are calling Heroes the "break out" hit of the fall, but I think that title is reserved for Ugly Betty. Heroes will now get a full, 22-episode season.

The Simpsons season nine out on DVD in December

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 28th 2006 4:28PM

simpsonsThe ever-vigilant TVShowsonDVD has announced that the ninth season of The Simpsons will be ready for purchase in digital versatile format on December 19, just in time for any family members who might be reading this to grab the set for me for Christmas. Hell, I haven't even made it all the way through my eighth season set yet and already a new one has been announced -- not that I'm complaining. The ninth season has more than a few great episodes: the family's trip to New York City; Homer buying a handgun to protect his family; a religious debate spurned by the alleged remains of a dead angel; the students of Springfield Elementary stranded on an island a la Lord of the Flies; Homer and his reluctant family joining the Movementarian cult; Bart and Lisa becoming co-anchors on a student news program while Homer purchases and subsequently almost kills a helper monkey; and Homer climbing the dangerous Murderhorn mountain to earn Bart's respect.

South Park season eight on DVD August 29

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 21st 2006 7:10PM
south parkSouth Park has been doing a fine job of getting the season sets out in a timely manner, and on August 29 the eighth season will be available. Some of the episodes, such as "Awesom-O" and "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset" are already available on the recent "best of" DVD, but this season also had some other great episodes, such as "The Passion of the Jew," "Good Times with Weapons" (in which Butters is accidentally hit in the eye with a ninja star so the boy's dress him up as a dog and take him to a vet), "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes," and, possibly the best South Park Christmas episode ever, "Woodland Critter Christmas." The set will contain all fourteen episodes from the season, and the usual mini-commentaries from Matt and Trey.

Hustle ready for season three

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 15th 2006 3:24PM
HustleI couldn't sleep last night, so I watched an episode of Hustle at around 2:00 in the morning. During one of the breaks, there was a commercial for the new season and its new time: Wednesdays at 10 PM, starting June 28. What?! That's only thirteen days away!

I'm really surprised there hasn't been more buzz about this. I mean, I wouldn't have known about the US premiere of the new season if I hadn't stayed up that late. It deserves a bigger audience because it's really a fantastic, smart, fast-paced show. Plus, I heard the new season has Mickey and Danny streaking through London. Good stuff.

Firefly: Serenity (Parts 1 and 2)

Do not adjust your web browser. You are now entering the Retro Squad, where we are reviewing past episodes of your favorite shows, in order, every week.

(S01E11/S01E12) When I decided to go the route of reviewing the 'Serenity' episodes before 'The Train Job', I wasn't quite sure what Firefly purists would think. Most fans of the series know that Joss Whedon had originally pitched this two-parter to FOX as what would kick off the series, but the execs disagreed. They thought it wasn't the right kind of thing that would draw viewers in for following weeks, so 'The Train Job' was aired first, shuffling off the 'Serenity' episodes well into the season, right before it got canceled.

So, why am I not starting with 'The Train Job'? Because, my friends, this is how the series should have started. This is what makes sense. This is what Joss envisioned as what would start his beloved series, and I can see why. I mean, who introduces characters at the end of the series?

Wonder Showzen back for second season

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 3rd 2006 12:03PM
wonder showzenThey've been saying since last year that Wonder Showzen, a subversive Sesame Street spoof from Canada that aired on MTV2, would be back for a second season. Well, now we actually have an airdate. The second season of what could quite possibly be my new favorite show kicks off on March 31. Here's hoping my cable provider doesn't take MTV2 away again. They have a nasty habit of moving that channel around, so much so that my Tivo has no idea what channel MTV2 is anymore. "It's channel 98, not 75!" I keep screaming, but it never listens.
