If your question is not picked for a column, it may be answered in a subsequent column or in TV Squad's APB Podcast.

Dexter: Dex, Lies and Videotape

by Keith McDuffee, posted Nov 4th 2007 10:52PM

(S02E06) A couple of commenters last week mentioned they thought Harry could possibly be Dexter's biological father. Someone else mentioned that Dexter actually had a blood test done to prove who his father was, and I seem to remember that myself as well, though for some reason I can't remember the details.

In any case, Dexter continues to question how honest Harry had been with him when he was alive. In fact, he's getting pretty angry at him. It seems to me that, along with Lila's influence (whether positive or negative), Dexter not trusting what Harry taught him is just going to cause Dex to become even more sloppy.

How to behave on a game show

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 23rd 2007 3:04PM

Beat the GeeksAs you may or may not know, I have been on many game shows. I won $40,000 on Greed. I won a car, seven televisions and a buttload of other stuff on TV Land's Ultimate Fan Search. I won over a grand on To Tell The Truth and of course, I was on every episode of Beat the Geeks. Suffice it to say, I have plenty of experience with this game we call show. Recently Joel Keller wrote a piece chock full of information on where to apply to be on a gameshow, and while this information is certainly helpful, you should know that it's only the beginning. There are a multitude of Do's and Dont's to remember.

Let's start with the Do's...

David Arquette felt "beat up" after being on Stern - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 15th 2007 12:05PM
David ArquetteAfter yesterday's Q&A session for In Case of Emergency, I decided to ask David Arquette a question or two about his appearance on Howard Stern's show last week, where he talked a little about what broke up the Jennifer Aniston - Brad Pitt marriage (hint: she has bee-stung lips and a couple of adopted kids) and Aniston's subsequent relationship with Vince Vaughn, most of which made the tabloids.

Did he come out of the Stern show knowing he said things that were going to become news? "You definitely think, 'What did i say that they can twist?' because they do twist it. You kind of feel beat up when you get out of there." He went on to say, "I just don't want anyone to get the wrong impression, because I love all those people."

When I asked him how Stern is able to get information like that out of people, Arquette said, "He just asks crazy questions, and you kind of want to answer them truthfully. You don't want to lie."

Geraldo gets kicked to the curb: TMZ show next?

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 4th 2007 6:52PM
Geraldo RiveraAh, Geraldo. You and your porn moustache have been fired yet again.

TV Week is reporting that his news show Geraldo at Large, which is produced by Twentieth Television and shown nightly on many Fox stations, will cease production in the middle of this month, and will be off the air by the end of the month. Mr. Rivera will go back to hosting the weekend Fox News Channel show that he had before At Large began. So, he'll just have to do his muckraking and grandstanding for a slightly smaller audience (not that much smaller; his syndicated ratings were probably pretty lousy).

The interesting part of this article is that Fox stations are considering replacing Geraldo with a television version of our corporate cousins at TMZ.com, to be produced by another one of our corporate cousins, Warner Brothers. It figures... the family is always the last to find out about these things. We'll make them feel guilty about it at the next barbecue, believe you me.

The Wire: Refugees

by Michael Canfield, posted Oct 1st 2006 10:58PM
Detective (S04E04) "No one wins. One side just loses more slowly." -- Prez

Another strong episode, one that balances out the intensity of last week's ending. City hall and police bureaucracy wins, busting up the major case unit, shutting down the wiretaps on Marlo's crew. Now Kima and Lester both land in Homicide, in the same office the McNulty was in when he started all this four years ago. All that work down the drain, but that's the game.

Man, does Bunk (Wendell Pierce) miss McNulty. Seems Bunk's the only one who's not obsessed with his job, and he longs for the old days of drinking and whoring all night with his old partner. McNutly (Dominic West) looks so damn happy still. Maybe that's the only way for him to be happy -- stay away from the politics, and the desire to do good -- or even to make good.

Press Kits Unwrapped: 'Til Death

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 7th 2006 1:25PM

til deathAh, Brad Garrett finally returns to television after playing Ray Romano's secret transsexual lover on Everybody Loves Raymond for nine seasons (I never watched the show, so I'm just assuming). At any rate, he's back starring in 'til Death, a series about a couple that have been married for almost 9,000 days who get new neighbors, a young newlywed couple who have yet to realize just how trying a marriage can be once that initial spark dies down and reality sets in. The series debuts this evening at 8, but before you tune in, let's take a gander at all the cool stuff FOX included in its press kit for the show.

Tim and Eric call iTunes

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 12th 2006 12:01PM
tim and ericThe other day I mentioned I had discovered that Tom Goes to the Mayor creators had a podcast. I also mentioned that the fifth episode wasn't on iTunes for some reason. Now, I don't know this for certain, but the reason that particular episode is missing might be because it involves the duo making a prank call to iTunes tech support. You can watch it here (links to video) and if you're like me you can laugh until your uvula implodes because it's one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. It starts off with Tim Heidecker calling iTunes tech support, but instead of asking for tech help he starts asking the poor guy on the other end about Apple providing funding for their podcast. Later, Eric Wareheim joins in, and the call just starts to get weirder and weirder. Anyway, I found it quite amusing, and just thought I'd share. Why? Because I love you, damn it.

The Simpsons: Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 3rd 2006 8:07AM

simpsons(S06E10)

Homer (talking about his father): He said I was an accident. He didn't want to have me.

Marge: You didn't want to have Bart.

Homer: I know, but you're never supposed to tell the child.

Marge: You tell Bart all the time. You told him this morning.

Homer: But when I do it it's cute.

I don't think I would want to see Abe "Grandpa" Simpson made the center of every episode, but I like it when they occasionally give his character a little more dimension than just being a simple satire of elderly people. "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish" is a great example of such an episode, but this one isn't too bad, either, and it gives ol' Grandpa a chance to venture outside the rest home and actually do something.

Get a lesson in Doctor Who

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 14th 2006 10:52AM

doctor whoI know, it's tough. You've been wanting to watch Doctor Who for a long time now, but you figure it's pointless to try and get into a show that's been on for as long as this one has. Or maybe you're like me and just never cared about Doctor Who in the first place because you got into other shows like Carpenter What and Janitor How. Or maybe you just like to make up really lame jokes that play on the name "Doctor Who." That's not important, though. What is important is that the BBC has a Flash site where you can poke around and learn about the series, different episodes, characters, and other things to get you up to speed. There's a long history, but if you're interested in the show, it's worth checking out.

Carlin on Campus tomorrow night

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 27th 2006 11:59AM
george carlinArguably a living legend, George Carlin will turn the big 70 this year. The man has been around for so long and transcended generations with his comedy that he has an almost eternal quality to him. That's foolish, of course, since the man is only human, but there's something about watching this icon grow old that's rather unsettling, and almost unfair. If you happen to be near a television late tomorrow night, Comedy Central will be showing Carlin's 1984 special Carlin on Campus as part of their Secret Stash. The show will be completely uncut and unedited. If you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out. Then catch some recent footage of the venerable comedian and see just how quick-witted and prolific he still is.
