Finally, John Goodman is coming back to television

John GoodmanI don't even care what the show's about, I'm just stoked that John Goodman is coming back to television. In the late '80s and '90s Goodman was all over my TV screen. He was every bit as essential to the success of Roseanne as the titular star. His constant impromptu appearances on Saturday Night Live ranked among some of its most memorable moments through the '90s. Plus, if he's back on television in a major way, maybe he can come back and host the show a lucky thirteenth time.

His new project is The Station, a CIA-based FOX comedy produced by Ben Stiller. It's about a group of covert operatives in South America who are there to install a new dictator. Sounds weird. I don't care. John Goodman's in it.

Goodman is one of those actors who has natural comic timing, but also possesses a dramatic capability absent from many of his comedic brethren, thus allowing him to put depth into his roles. Plus, he's one of those actors who makes everything better and more anticipated just by being tied to it. Who doesn't love John Goodman?

Stiller comedy lands Nic Cage's National Treasure co-star

justin bartha the stationActor Justin Bartha is taking a break from saving Nic Cage's ass in the National Treasure movies to star in the upcoming Fox comedy The Station. Judging by a network description of the show, The Station was seemingly designed to repel network audiences and get canceled before the third episode airs.

It's a comedy about a CIA operative working with his crew to install a new dictator in a South American country.

I don't mean to sound so negative, but this concept doesn't exactly scream "network hit." I'm not saying it won't be funny. It better be. Zoolander himself, Ben Stiller, is directing the pilot. But this doesn't sound like the kind of thing that will make it on Fox, the network known for pulling the plug too early on some of its best and most original series. It might get a chance to grow on a cable network like FX or AMC. Maybe. But not on Fox.

New pilots from Fox

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 20th 2009 10:02AM
FoxFox has inked a deal for a bunch of new pilots for next season. They include such titles as The Station, Walorsky, Two Dollar Beer, Sons of Tucson and Human Target.

Among them, Human Target is of the most interest to me. It's an adaptation from a DC Comics character. He's a bodyguard named Christopher Chance that assumes the identity of the person he is supposed to protect. Properly done, this could become a companion show or successor to 24 (particularly since Prison Break is ending).

This isn't even the first television adaption for The Human Target, as Rick Springfield starred in a brief series about the same character in 1990. However, things were different then. The environment is better for such a program now, assuming they take it seriously and don't make it too cartoon-like (although I could argue that 24 is cartoon-like in its presentation).

So which of the new Fox pilots do you find interesting?
