Tonight we find out if Beckett (Stana Katic) is going to survive the gun shot she took in the final minutes of the Season Three finale of the sometimes dramatic, sometimes funny detective whodunnit series CASTLE featuring author Richard “Rick” Castle (Nathan Fillion) solving crimes with his lady cop inspiration Detective Kate Beckett. Okay, it’s a gimme that Beckett is going to pull through – kinda hard to continue the series if she didn’t. But there was Castle’s declaration of love as he held her in his arms as she slowly passed out. And that kind of got us here […]Read On »

Over three seasons of ABC’s CASTLE – which returns for its fourth season on Monday, September 19 – we’ve seen Nathan Fillion’s wealthy, best-selling mystery novelist Rick Castle fall for Stana Katic’s Kate Beckett, the dedicated NYPD homicide detective Castle follows around. Initially, Castle’s ride-alongs were for research, but by now everybody recognizes there’s a greater investment there than just getting the facts right. In Season Three, Beckett got a lead on the cold case murder of her own mother, which unveiled a conspiracy involving Beckett’s police captain, Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s Roy Montgomery.Montgomery died heroically, protecting Beckett, but at his funeral, […]Read On »

Soap fans were obviously upset that ABC cancelled their long-running daytime soaps ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE, and that’s extended to the promise of boycotting the reality shows replacing them on ABC’s daytime schedule. Executive producer Gordon Elliott of THE CHEW, a new food talk show (think THE VIEW with food) that will air in that soap time slot, addressed this concern to the press today during a Television Critics Association session. “We hope that [soap fans] will enjoy our show,” says Elliott who was thrilled to hear ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE will […]Read On »

With NBC debuting the 1960s set THE PLAYBOY CLUB this fall and ABC airing the 1960s set PAN AM (a serialized drama about the legendary international airline), questions have arisen whether or not these series would not have made it on the air without the success of the AMC period drama MAD MEN. While at today’s Television Critics Association session for the new ABC series PAN AM, executive producer  and director Thomas Schlamme says a good show has nothing to do with its setting. “Television is execution, and not the time period it takes place in,” says Schlamme. “All I […]Read On »

With ABC just announcing that DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES will be ending after its forthcoming Eighth and final season, creator and executive producer Marc Cherry spoke today at the Television Critics Association today about how that decision came about. “I think the only thing harder in creating a hit show is when to end it – especially when you have one of the most amazing casts in the history of television,” says Cherry. “Because I have been working in TV for 23 years, I’m also very aware of people overstaying their welcome [especially] shows that have gone on too long, drifted away […]Read On »

If the sound of death can be called adorable, then Jim Dooley did the trick over the course of two seasons with the “forensic fairy tale” PUSHING DAISIES, wherein a baker brought the deceased back to life with usually eccentric results. It’s the kind of pokily sweet ghoulishness that Danny Elfman put on the map with BEETLEJUICE. And while there’s a healthy dose of that sound to go around this delightful 62-minute CD, Dooley somehow managed to pump up Elfman’s skull n’ bones bounce to new inspired heights in Season 2, turning the undead carnival into more of a waltz […]Read On »
