ABC's new Charlie's Angels isn't the worst remake that we've ever seen (we're still leaning towards Knight Rider for that dishonor), it's not exactly what you'd call Emmy-bait (though it isn't trying to be), it doesn't have the most attractive cast on TV (Vampire Diaries probably wins that one) and it definitely doesn't have the most kick-ass girl action scenes (we tip our hat to Nikita ), but with all that said, it's not the worst show to premiere this fall. It isn't even that bad when all is said and done. It's just that it falls in the unfortunate position of being average -- not great, not appallingly awful, just there. And unless it garners some Big Bang Theory-style ratings, it probably won't be there for long.
Tanya Roberts is probably known best for her latest role, as Donna's hot mom Midge on That '70s Show, but before that she was a vixen on the big and small screens. Roberts got her big break playing Julie Rogers, one of the last Charlie's Angels, on the show's fifth season, and went on to be a Bond Girl in Live and Let Die and no less than Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. We managed to finagle a few minutes with her at Tuesday's surreal Best Buy event, and found out that she is criminally not acting in anything right now. Scoop her up, people -- she's available! And she's game for almost anything, as she explained to us...
Dragon eggs for all!
These guys truly are in a league of their own.
The horror... the horror
Joss Whedon tries to sell Scarlett Johansson on the benefits of guest starring on his new S.H.I.E.L.D. series.
The biggest problem with Anger Management isn't that it's focused on the antics of Charlie Sheen that unfolded over the last year or so in the media, but the fact that it falls back to Charlie Sheen's typical sitcom shtick instead of taking advantage of his outrageous public personality. In fact, the show comes off more like a modern day version of The Bob Newhart Show, albeit with blunt talk about sex. And despite the fact that it airs on FX, home of the edgy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie and the weirdly wonderful Wilfred, it actually more closely resembles Sheen's last sitcom Two and a Half Men in look, feel and attitude. And that's a disappointment. It's like FX was so excited to land Sheen after his meltdown that they didn't bother to make sure the sitcom they bought was a good fit for their network brand, or that it was something anyone would actually want to watch.
Everyone's favorite (well, my favorite) Criminal Minds profiler will continue to hunt down serial killers next season on the CBS drama.
If you've been in serious Schmidt withdrawal, you'll now be able to add New Girl's return date to your calendar.
Looks like the two and a half men are moving on down to Thursdays.
