All in the Family: Incest on TV

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jul 26th 2011 4:00PM

I suppose it says something about where we're at with incest that I barely blinked when 'Game of Thrones' introduced us to Queen Cersei and her brother Jamie Lannister, only to show them in flagrante during the first 50 minutes of the show's premiere. If confronted with this sort of behavior from real people, I'm pretty sure I'd say more than, "But isn't that her twin brother? Ohhhhhh." But when it comes to fictional people, lately it seems like a little inter-genetic action is par for the course.

'Veronica Mars' Creator: All Hope for a Movie is Not Lost

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 6th 2010 4:30PM
Veronica Mars Kristen BellAttention 'Veronica Mars' fans: you'd better take a deep breath. Rob Thomas, the man behind 'Mars,' said all hope is not lost for a big screen version of the cult series -- but don't start celebrating yet.

The 'Mars' mastermind doesn't want fans to continue on the roller coaster that has been the 'Veronica Mars' movie saga, but he is exploring alternate routes -- like indie financing -- to reunite with Kristen Bell and the residents of Neptune on the big screen.

While promoting the second season of 'Party Down' (that part of the interview coming soon), Thomas divulged some new details about his ongoing quest to give 'Mars' fans a taste of the snarky private eye on the big screen.

Betty White Says 'SNL' Push "Out of Left Field"

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:32AM
betty whiteOne of my favorite things happening in television right now is the push to get Betty White to host 'Saturday Night Live.' I've loved Betty White my entire life, from watching her on reruns of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' to listening to her tales about St. Olaf on 'The Golden Girls.' What's especially great about this movement is that it's not driven by kitschy nostalgia. Sure, that's part of it, but a big portion of this drive is based on the simple fact that Betty White is hands-down one of the funniest women currently working in Hollywood.

Now, White is talking to People magazine about all of the hullabaloo, and she seems surprised that fans are taking such an interest. White says, "That just came out of left field. It's ridiculous. I don't think Lorne Michaels even knows about it, so we won't worry about it." While she may not be worried about it, that doesn't mean it's not going to happen.

Best TV of the '00s: Dramatic Actress

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 1st 2010 11:02AM
allison_janney_west_wingMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the best dramatic actresses of the decade.

Television has always been good to the ladies. Actresses have flourished in dramatic series, and in the past decade, we've seen some amazing performances. There have been lawyers, cops, a U.S. president, nurses, doctors, judges, mothers, daughters and even a real housewife from New Jersey whose husband was in the waste disposal business.

Many of these women have already been honored with Emmys and Golden Globes... and now they get the recognition of TV Squad.

Here, then, without further vamping, the best dramatic actresses of the past ten years:

Chris Lowell From 'Private Practice' Talks Explosions, 'Veronica Mars' and George Clooney (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 2nd 2009 8:33PM
Private Practice, Chris Lowell as Dell ParkerAlthough Chris Lowell says he's "no Zac Efron," we beg to differ. The boyish actor has co-starred with everyone from Kristen Bell (one of his best friends) in 'Veronica Mars' to George Clooney in 'Up in the Air.'

But you might know him best from his role as Dell Parker, the receptionist-turned-midwife on the hit ABC show 'Private Practice.' If you've been missing Dell from the show this season, never fear. He has an "explosive" episode coming up Thursday night, in which his wife and daughter land in the hospital after a fierce explosion in their home.

We caught up with Lowell, who after apologizing for his raspy voice and noting it's because he's ill and not sexy (again, we beg to differ), gave us the skinny on playing a surfer dude, being typecast as an assistant and working with George Clooney.

7 TV Shows That Shouldn't Be Made Into Movies

by Chris O'Connell, posted Nov 17th 2009 11:00AM
Veronica MarsEver since 'Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino recently disclosed to Entertainment Weekly that she isn't ruling out a movie adaptation of the coming-of-age mother-daughter dramedy, we've been thinking of the other television shows rumored to become movies in the not-so-distant future.

Mostly, we've been thinking about how much we will hate them.

Behold, the seven worst (maybe) upcoming TV to film adaptations and why they are bad ideas.

No Emmy, No Problem

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 25th 2009 4:12PM
So here it is, another season of Emmy fever has come and gone. Did you notice? Or were you busy looking at pictures of TIFF parties? Catching up on all the new shows debuting? Enjoying the last few beautiful days of the year? Yeah, me too. The Emmys are many things - well-timed is not one of them.

But that's not the only reason I can't get too worked up about TVs big show. Often, my favourite shows just aren't nominated.

So I decided to have a look at some of my favourite shows that never won Emmys - or at least I thought they never won Emmys. but once I started doing my research, it turned out the Academy totally saw me coming and headed me off at the pass. Most of my favourite shows have won Emmys. For hairstyling.

TV: It's a Love-Hate Kind of Thing

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 8th 2009 12:03PM


There are two kinds of people in the world - those who watch TV and those who do not.

I am the sort of person who watches TV. I have all the symptoms. I talk about TV characters as if they are real, and I talk about their lives as if they go on after their show has ended. Just the other day, it hit me that Veronica Mars would be a senior in college now. (That same week was my best friend's birthday - I forgot.)

Megan Mullally gets ready to Party Down

by Kona Gallagher, posted Sep 2nd 2009 7:01PM
megan mullallyNow this is some casting news I can get behind. After the disastrous In the Motherhood, Megan Mullally is returning to television-- on a show that's actually funny! Mullally is set to join the cast of the amazing Party Down, a Starz original from Veronica Mars creator, Rob Thomas.

Mullally is replacing Jane Lynch, whose role as Sue Sylvester on Glee has been bumped up from recurring character to series regular. She plays "Lydia Dunfree, who leaves her small town and her failed marriage to help her 13-year-old daughter Escapade achieve her dream of becoming an actress. In addition to working as a cater-waiter for Party Down, Lydia is looking for Mr. Right."

Greatest TV Bad Boys

My So-Called LifeOh, bad boys, what would we do without you? While in real life you're more trouble than you're worth, on screen your sulky swaggering, tough talk and icy eyes almost always belie a tender heart beneath the bravado. And that's where you're best enjoyed -- from a safe distance.
