Zachary Levi became known and beloved for his five years on NBC’s CHUCK as the title character, who went from humble tech repair guy to superspy, thanks to a government implant in his brain. Levi’s experiences with CHUCK fandom were so positive that he founded the Nerd Machine, which produces the annual event Nerd HQ. He’s also starred as the singing voice of the male lead in Disney’s animated Rapunzel tale TANGLED. Now Levi is back at NBC as Luke Collins in HEROES REBORN, Thursdays at 8 PM. The original HEROES, created by Tim Kring (who is also the guiding […]Read On »

HEROES REBORN: Jack Coleman give the scoop on Season 1 – exclusive interview

For four seasons, Jack Coleman played Noah Bennet, aka HRG (short for “Horn-Rimmed Glasses”) or “the man with the plan,” on NBC’s HEROES. Noah, adoptive father of the indestructible cheerleader Claire (played by Hayden Panettiere, now a regular on NASHVILLE), was an operative of a shadowy agency that co-opted people with superpowers. However, fatherly loyalty won out with Noah – usually. It was always hard to be sure of his motives, which was one of the things that made him such a memorable character. Pennsylvania native Coleman was a standout member of the large HEROES cast. His earlier career included […]Read On »

Showtime’s MASTERS OF SEX, now in its second season on Sunday nights, dramatizes the life and work of pioneering sex researchers William Masters, played by Michael Sheen, and Virginia Johnson, played by Lizzy Caplan. Although Masters and Johnson – and their research – were real, a number of fictional and composite characters appear in the series. One of the most unusual original characters is Annaleigh Ashford’s Betty DiMello. During the course of MASTERS OF SEX so far, we’ve seen Betty go from a lesbian prostitute who is instrumental in helping Masters and Johnson get their study started to an upwardly […]Read On »

Stars: Becky Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer, Michelle Trachtenberg, Bret Harrison, Matt Long, Donald Faison, Jaime Pressly Writer: Cindy Chupack Director: Anton Cropper Network: NBC, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: July 21, 2011 If it’s still a little unclear on why someone decided to revive the LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE format – albeit in a much less cartoonish incarnation – in 2011, the results are quite pleasant. While one of our main characters, Annie (Becky Newton) is off on maternity leave while carrying her sister’s child, Annie’s waitress colleague Jodie (Michelle Trachtenberg) has made the big leap, giving up her own […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Boys to Men”

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Danielle Sanchez-witzel & Joe Lawson Director: Jamie Babbit Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 I’ve given up on trying to figure out what the hell is going on with LOVE BITES. One week it’s horrendously bad, the next week it’s quite good. The tone has varied, the stories are all of the place, yet, some times it gets everything right. This week, with “Boys to Men”, the series almost feels like the writers have finally broken completely out of their shells and found clever ways of truly connecting […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – “TMI”

  Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Colleen McGuinness Director: John Scott Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: July 7, 2011 I don’t envy the writers and producers of LOVE BITES – NBC’s summer anthology series about love, romance and other dysfunctional relationship woes. It has to be hard to come up with new characters, situations and scenarios every week and then wrap them around a common theme. With established series, you have regular characters and quirks to carry you through those weeks where nothing is working. Here, outside of three recurring lead (who usually end up […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Stand and Deliver”

  Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: David McHugh, Matt Flannegan Director: John David Cotes Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 30, 2011 It was bound to happen, but LOVE BITES takes a huge step backwards with “Stand and Deliver” after several weeks of striking a nice balance between its characters, storytelling and comedy. Nothing works in “Stand and Deliver,” which is a shame since I think this show has improved considerably since the pilot. The big issue comes back to storytelling and the guest cast – and this week it’s weak on all fronts (aside […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Sky High”

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Joe Lawson Director: Timothy Busfield Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 23, 2011 How did I end up liking LOVE BITES? Let’s just say by brute force! Being chosen to review the show against my will, and hating the premiere episode, I’m now finding it a pretty agreeable and enjoyable summer time filler. The structure of a weekly romantic anthology series didn’t seem like the best idea in the world at first, but since it’s found a way to have a handful of recurring characters and bringing on a great […]Read On »

TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Keep on Truckin’”

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writers: Tracy Poust, Jon Kinnally & David Feeney (“Goodbye Boob,” “Cutlets”), Larry Wilmore & Danielle Sanchez-Witzel (“Ninja Vanish”) Directors: John Scott (“Goodbye Boob,” “Cutlets”), Marc Buckland (“Ninja Vanish”) Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 16, 2011 It’s taken two weeks, but the initially dreadful LOVE BITES has grown, just two episodes in, into something quite watchable and sort of entertaining. Yes, you heard me say it – the show is getting better and is attempting to take its love connection stories and actually striving for something a little more complicated, slightly […]Read On »
