Medium: Partners in Crime - VIDEO

by Paul Goebel, posted Apr 15th 2008 8:02AM

The upstanding Det. Scanlon(S04E12) I had all but forgotten about Kurtwood Smith. I've been a big fan ever since Robocop and this character is really fun to watch. I only wish the writers had given his character a different name. Every time someone calls him Agent Cooper, I flashback to Twin Peaks and I feel like I'm betraying Medium by wishing that Peaks was still on the air.

One of the best things about Smith is how he can be so menacing while still keeping a smile on his face. In fact, I find him scarier when he smiles. I felt the same way when Red would actually say something nice to a member of his family on That 70's Show.

Miss Guided: Homecoming (series permiere)

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 19th 2008 9:22AM

Judy Greer(S01E01) I'm not quite sure what to make of this show. It's hard to decide what I like and don't like considering that the show is really not that unique. For example, I've always been a fan of Chris Parnell but his work on Miss Guided pales in comparison to the stuff he does on 30 Rock. The same goes for Brooke Burns but if I had to choose, I'd rather see her in those jeans she wore on Dog Eat Dog.

Judy Greer is super funny. Her guest spot on Two and a half Men was brilliant in my opinion. So when she got her own show, I was interested to say the least.

Tom Poston dead at 85

by Bob Sassone, posted May 1st 2007 6:15PM

Tom PostonTom Poston, one of the classic veterans of TV comedy, died earlier today at his home in Los Angeles. He appeared on The Steve Allen Show in the 1950s and Newhart in the 1980s.

Poston played handyman George Utley on Newhart, and was also a regular on another Bob Newhart series, Bob. And to keep the connection to Newhart going, he played Cliff "The Peeper" Murdock on The Bob Newhart Show in the 70s. Poston also appeared on Grace Under Fire, Mork & Mindy, The Simpsons, Will & Grace, Home Improvement, Murphy Brown, Get Smart, Coach, The Love Boat, Studio One, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Just Shoot Me, That 70s Show, and dozens of other shows over the years.

Poston was married to actress Suzanne Pleshette, who played Newhart's wife Emily on The Bob Newhart Show.

Supernatural: Hollywood Babylon

They don't do much in the way of developing the big mysteries, but I do like it when the Supernatural team takes time out to have some fun. Such was the case this week with "Hollywood Babylon." If it was the overall style of the show, I don't think it would work nearly as well. But as an every once in a while thing, these tongue-in-cheek, laugh at yourself, episodes are a fun diversion from the norm. Although, I would have preferred to see this one and "Tall Tales" separated a little more on the schedule.

The 14 greatest TV eateries

by Keith McDuffee, posted Apr 11th 2007 11:52AM
happy days arnold'sWelcome to TV Squad Lists (formerly 'The Five'), a feature where each blogger has a chance to list his or her own rundown of things in television that stand out from the rest, both good and bad.

Last week I gave you a pretty big list of popular "drinkeries" from TV, but I think where I went wrong was trying too hard to list every watering hole possible. Since I'm covering eateries this week, I'm certain I'll miss some of your favorites, but I'm going to list what I believe to be the most popular dining spots from television, both past and present. And since there are way too many real spots on TV to mention (Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Stadium, etc.), I'll stick with fictional spots, even if they're based on real ones.

This time let's go with 14 of them.

1) Arnold's/Al's Drive-In (Happy Days) -- I struggled for a bit with what I would call the number one eatery on TV, but I kept coming back to this spot. Arnold's/Al's was in nearly every episode as far as I can recall, and of course housed The Fonz's office. After it burned down, the signage changed to Al's.

Medium: Profiles In Terror

by Brett Love, posted Dec 14th 2006 7:10AM
Kurtwood Smith(S03E06) I think that most people probably thought of Red Foreman when they saw Kurtwood Smith in the previews for this episode. Any actor that does a role for that long is going to be tied to it to some degree. Especially if it is something like That 70's Show which is in syndication so you are constantly stumbling over it. But it is a credit to Kurtwood that while I was secretly hoping for him to call someone a dumb-ass the whole time, he made Edward Cooper something completely different.

Cooper is an interesting character. At once the hero, and the villain. I suspected going in that there would be some butting of the heads as his clinical studying of the evidence clashed with Allison's visions. And we did get some of that. It was made even better with the first round going to Cooper. He was so smarmy and confident as he shot Allison down again and again. It seemed to set up perfectly for Allison to eventually be proven right and get the "I told you so" moment that she wanted so badly.

CBS wants to see a Genius pilot

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 29th 2006 11:05AM
cbs logoCBS wants to see what happens when the cool kids at Abercrombie & Fitch mingle with the computer geeks at the Apple Store Genius Bar. The show is called Genius Bar and all four major networks thought it was pretty great. After a bidding war, the idea landed at CBS. Genius Bar is being created by Josh Sternin and Jeff Ventimilia, two producers of That '70s Show.

It's interesting- the idea for the show actually came from a marketing guru named Krishnan Menon, whose company is responsible for major marketing campaigns for the iPod and iMac.

Veronica Mars theme remix - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Sep 28th 2006 9:41AM
Veronica Mars openIt's something that happens fairly often, and I never understand the reasoning behind it. A show is motoring right along and then a new season starts and someone has decided to redo the theme song. I remember it happening on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and That 70's Show, and I'm sure many others. Now, with season three, Veronica Mars has joined the club. For those scoring at home, season three was also when they made the change for Buffy.

The Dandy Warhols song, "We Used To Be Friends", is still the theme song, but now it's been remixed into a stripped down, more ethereal track. It's not bad, but it's not better either. Personally, I prefer the original. Watch the new open after the jump and let us know what you think.

Wilmer Valderrama coming to Turner Classic Movies

by Bob Sassone, posted May 25th 2006 11:01AM
Wilmer ValderramaNo, that's not a typo. The former That 70s Show star is going to star in TCM's first original series, which will be a game show where amateur actors recreate a classic movie scene with Valderrama.

Yeah. In the 70s we called it Don Adam's Screen Test.

Speaking of old TV shows, Valderrama is about to start filming the big screen version of the series CHiPs.
