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.
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.
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?
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!
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.
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.
