What better way to take your mind off of Watchmen and the entirely virtual nerd-fights it has inspired than by reading some excitingly nerdy TV news? There's a lot of exciting casting news today, mostly about aliens, vampires and superheroes, plus some news that might make your head explode, like in that movie Scanners. Basically, this entire news roundup is a sci-fi horror show. And it's all true, or at least rumored to be true. Watchmen, what have ye wrought?!
While the latest three finalists who actually earned their way into the Top 12 (instead of those second-chance Wild Cards) kind of got the short shrift this week, as attention was so quickly shifted to the national nightmare known as Tatiana, we still found time to pay attention to their conference call. We're givers like that. Below are the highlights of what Lil Rounds, Scott MacIntyre and Jorge Nunez had to say.
When we heard the pitch for Nathan Fillion's new TV show Castle -- mystery writer helps police solve crimes -- we immediately thought of the long-running Angela Lansbury series Murder, She Wrote, which had a similar premise. Hell, even Fillion himself makes the comparison, although ABC apparently told him not to, probably because it makes it sound like a show for 80-year-olds. We've seen a couple episodes of the show by now, and while it probably has more in common with current series like Bones and The Mentalist, there are certainly a few similarities between Castle and Murder She Wrote. We decided to look at just the facts, ma'am, on a case-by-case basis and see if the comparison is justified.
Woohoo, it's Friday! And it's finally time to ask the question that's been on everyone's minds (okay, maybe not everyone's, but still!) all month: who watches the Watchmen? The answer: not you, if you're reading this. So kill a couple minutes with these TV newsbites before heading off into the night to check out Billy Crudup's giant, blue naked body, or get drunk, or whatever else you may have planned for the weekend. Here at TWoP, we don't judge.
Having really only gotten into Desperate Housewives this season, and not really having any investment in any of the regular characters, the biggest thing that keeps me looking forward to each new episode is Ol' Blue Eyes, Neal McDonough. As "Creepy" Dave Williams, new husband to Edie Britt and widower to the woman (and child) who died in Mike and Susan's car accident, McDonough has been a portrait in deranged malevolence each week, insinuating himself in the lives of his new neighbors and throwing vague suspicion off of himself by driving away Mrs. McCluskey, not to mention framing Porter Scavo. But judging by the way he talks to his dead family with increasing frequency, and the fact that the season has to end sometime, we expect some serious stuff to go down pretty soon. Here's a few ways we think he's gonna get revenge.
