Escaped Cons Take Callie Hostage on Season Finale of 'The Glades' (VIDEO)

'The Glades' - 'Breakout'It gets personal for Det. Jim Longworth when two escaped inmates take the hospital Callie works at hostage on the season finale of 'The Glades' (Mon, 10PM ET on A&E).

When he brought the money they had demanded, there was a stand-off between Longworth and the cons. Only, at that time they still had the leverage, and they knew he had special feelings for Callie (which he may never act on because this is television), so she was an especially valuable hostage.

"You harm one hair on her head, and I will hunt you down and kill you like a dog," he told them.

Matt Passmore Discusses the Complex Relationships of 'The Glades' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 17th 2011 6:15PM
Matt Passmore of 'The Glades' on 'Good Day LA'Steve Edwards, anchor of 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) is a big fan of 'The Glades.' In an interview on Wednesday, he told 'Glades' star Matt Passmore that he'd seen every episode of the show, and gushed about the characters and their relationships, especially the chemistry between Passmore's Jim Longworth and Kiele Sanchez's Callie Cargill.

Passmore said 'Glades' creator and writer Clifton Campbell had written the relationship between Longworth and Cargill to be complex. "Most television, especially procedurals, work on just a simmering tension," he said. "Ours isn't so much about tension but about obstacles. So already it's, you know, guy meets girl, guy finds out that girl is married to a guy in prison, has a child, and all the complexities that come with that."

EXCLUSIVE: The Everglades Shine in This 'The Glades' Season 1 DVD Clip

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 23rd 2011 2:30PM
The GladesA&E's summer series 'The Glades' is replete with crazy characters. After all, you'd expect nothing else from a show that follows a homicide detective in Florida.

But aside from the actual people who populate Palm Glade, there's another character at work on the show: The Florida Everglades.

The swampy landscape is a unique setting for a murder investigation series, especially since many other shows tend to hit up the flashier Florida locales (Miami, anyone?)

After the jump, check out an exclusive clip from a featurette on 'The Glades' season 1 DVD, out now from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment (on Blu-ray, too!), in which the show's stars discuss a major character: the Glades themselves.

In this week's Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan podcast, we take on a bunch of summer shows we haven't discussed yet.

But why the 'Game of Thrones' podcast logo? Well, that's here because I never got around to posting links to the the two epic 'GoT' podcasts we did with TV critics James Poniewozik and Myles McNutt last week.

Below you'll find links to those podcasts, plus running times for this week's discussion of 'White Collar,' 'Covert Affairs,' 'Franklin & Bash,' 'The Killing,' 'Camelot' and BBC America's re-airing of 'Battlestar Galactica.'

'Bobby Fischer Against the World' (9PM ET, HBO)
HBO kicks off its summer documentary series with a film that chronicles the brilliant rise of chess prodigy Bobby Fischer, who became a grandmaster as a teenager, battled Russia's Boris Spassky in a legendary 1972 match and, in his controversial later years, became paranoid and withdrawn. This documentary draws on interviews with chess legend Gary Kasparov, author Malcolm Gladwell, talk-show host Dick Cavett, Paul Marshall (Fischer's personal attorney), Harry Sneider (his trainer) and photographer Harry Benson, who had access to Fischer before and during the 1972 championship.

Review: What Does 'The Glades' Have to Do With Your Laundry?

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 2nd 2011 4:15PM
'The Glades' (10PM ET Sunday, A&E) may not have risen to the level of must-see TV, but it's certainly gotten better.

If you think of the Florida-set detective drama as a less ambitious 'Burn Notice' or a throwback to the moderately competent police procedurals of years gone by, it may well work as a pleasant summer diversion.

The biggest change is that the lead character, relocated Chicago police officer Jim Longworth, is no longer off-puttingly obnoxious, as he was in last year's wince-inducing pilot for 'The Glades.' Jim, who's played by Matt Passmore, has been wisely dialed down several notches and given relatively interesting cases to work.

Treasure Hunting Brings Out the Worst of People in 'The Glades' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 20th 2010 5:48AM
'The Glades'You'd think finding a lost buried treasure would be enough to stop two people fighting, but not so for Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore) and Callie Carghill (Kiele Sanchez) of 'The Glades' (Sun., 10PM on AETV). After their fighting led to the discovery of the treasure when Callie pushed Jim over it, triggering his metal detector, they did stop fighting long enough to dig it up.

Unfortunately, while they were still in the hole, they discovered they were no longer alone. "Friends of yours?" Callie asked Jim bitterly, as the new arrivals were pointing guns at them.

"Suspects actually," he said nonchalantly, as if introducing the pair to Callie. "That's Johnny's partner. That's his bench lawyer. They killed Johnny for the treasure."

Jim Has Odd, Sarcastic Negotiating Skills on 'The Glades' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Jul 26th 2010 7:44AM
Jim Has Sarcastic Negotiating Skills on 'The Glades'Just as a pill-popping guy down on his luck is about to shoot the woman who stopped his meds, Jim makes on appearance. The homicide detective on 'The Glades' (Sun., 10PM ET on A&E) has some bizarre negotiating skills, brimming with sarcasm and odd advice. Neither party can figure out whose side he's on.

Jim empathizes with his predicament. "Carol cut off your lifeline -- the meds. They're helping you keep it all in perspective ... I understand ... She is the worst of the worst -- typical bureaucrat from the party of 'No.'"

Then he gives the guy a choice: shoot Carol or get his happy pills back. Let's just say everyone comes out of the house alive, but the tension doesn't end there.

"I actually thought you were going to let that man shoot me," Carol says to Jim. Long awkward pause. Check out the video for his frank response.

Armed with his confident, devil-may-care demeanor, the homicide detective chats with a former drug dealer concerning a murder investigation.

"Oh, you know I'm a cop, right?" he says casually, smoking a Cuban. The baddie chuckles and says, "You're wasting your time. I beat those raps years ago. I'm just another retiree living out his years in Florida."

But Jim's inside information makes the ex-dealer uncomfortable, and he summons security to kick him out. Jim isn't allowed to finish his cigar, but he does leave the guy with a bit of a taste of his own uncooperative medicine.
