Someone Should Tell These Girls to Stick with Acting

Someone Should Tell These Girls to Stick with Acting

Upon hearing the news that Hayden Panettiere was putting out a single, the first thought was, oh god not another one. We're wary of Hayden treading down the path that so many have misguidedly gone down before. Hayden's known for her lead role on the hit show Heroes, where she is praised for her acting talent. So why ruin her already strong reputation as an actress, with the debut of a solo CD.

What Would Jesus Sue?

What Would Jesus Sue? Let us pray. Dear Lord, please forgive me for laughing about this Passion of the Christ screenplay lawsuit. I know it is in sinfully bad taste for me to conjure up images of Mel Gibson as defendant and New Testament writer John as plantiff on Judge David Young, but I cannot help myself. The flesh is weak, but my will power over parody is far weaker.

Amy Poehler's New Job

by Mindy Monez July 16, 2008 10:58 am
Amy Poehler's New Job Amy Poehler has been added to the cast of the Office spinoff that apparently is in no way an Office spinoff, so please for the love of god stop calling it an Office spinoff. The funny lady (who I guess is leaving SNL now? As much as it pains me, it's time for her to move on) will join comedian Aziz Ansari in Office writers/producers Greg Daniels and Mike Schur's new NBC sitcom, set to premiere next winter in a sexy Thursday night post-Office timeslot.

Joey Potter's Back on the Small Screen!

Joey Potter's Back on the Small Screen!

I've got to thank my dear pal Michael Ausiello over at EW for this one -- he's discovered that one Miss Joey Potter will be resurfacing on the small screen in an episode of Eli Stone. Damn. I guess this means I've got to start watching this show. I tried, because of the Jack Bristow factor, but got bored after one episode. Normally I object to this kind of stuntcasting, but I'm totally selfish and that only goes for shows that I actually watch/am obsessed with. This one I don't care about, and I love me some Katie Holmes, before and after the craziness that surrounds her, Tom and Suri. She'll always be my little sweet Joey Potter. Nothing, not even Scientology, can take that away from her.

How Could A New Show Called Testees Not Be Funny?

How Could A New Show Called Testees Not Be Funny? Huzzah! In a brilliant move second only to the brilliant move that resulted in picking up It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia originally, the brass at FX have signed on to produce another outré comedy as a companion to IASIP. Testees (tee hee), written by Kenny Vs. Spenny creator (and former South Park scribe) Kenny Hotz, will focus on two best friends and roommates who are employed as guinea pigs (ie "testees" -- tee hee!) charged with testing all manner of product and medication that has yet to hit the market. As you might imagine, hilarity usually ensues.

Buffy Fights for Europe

Buffy Fights for Europe

The good news: Buffy the Vampire Slayer is getting a new video game for the Nintendo DS. The bad news: right now it's only going to be available in Europe. The weird news: A TV show that went off the air over five years ago is getting a video game release on a major handheld system, and not even in its country of origin. Can they do that?

Stuntcasting Strikes Again

by Mindy Monez July 15, 2008 3:07 pm
Stuntcasting Strikes Again Like it or not, as long as networks will never be satisfied with having a modest but decent enough audience for a series, stuntcasting will always be with us. So like it or not, Christina Ricci will appear in three upcoming Saving Grace episodes this season. I don't really understand why, of all the shows in the world, Ricci chose that one to guest on, considering she's pretty famous and could probably get a spot on a much bigger show, but maybe she's a fan. And working with Holly Hunter is nothing to sneeze at, so that may be the reason as well.

Dr. Horrible's Grand Entrance

by Mindy Monez July 15, 2008 2:08 pm
Dr. Horrible's Grand Entrance It's finally here! The first installment of Joss Whedon's online action musical, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, debuted last night, and oh, it was glorious! We couldn't get the official website to load over here, but fortunately it's also available (for the standard $1.99) on iTunes, so don't get discouraged if you can't watch it online.

The first act is indeed a lot of fun and it made me laugh out loud several times, but I do have one teensy complaint: despite the title, it is not a sing-along in the traditional sense. There are no lyrics on the screen with a bouncing dot, which, right or wrong is what I expected. But perhaps I'm too literal. Anyway, back to the fun stuff!

Shows That Are Crying Out for Minisodes

Shows That Are Crying Out for Minisodes

Or webisodes... I'm not picky I'll take either. Between the strike and the normal summer hiatus, we've been chomping at the bit to see any little glimpse of our favorite shows. The Office, Heroes and Rescue Me have responded by giving us minisodes and webisodes to hold us over and keep our interest until they finally return. Here's our list of other shows currently on hiatus that should do the same... and stat.

Fringe Fuels the Fun at Fox

<i>Fringe</i> Fuels the Fun at Fox

Oh, please, no. Don't call Fox's exciting new fall drama Fringe that scary word. You know -- the word that sends so many otherwise open-minded viewers racing for the remote.

The G word. The SF word. The F word. (No, not that F word.)

Yes -- as J.J. Abrams (Lost) and other Fringe producers admitted Monday in headlining the Fox portion of this summer's Television Critics Association press tour -- their new show is about speculative science getting out of control thanks to wanton corporate experimentation. Dead people talk, and lovers' brainwaves merge, and all sorts of other not-quite-reality is laid out amid shadowy conspiracies and kick-ass action.
