<I>Forbidden Science</I> Experiments: What if Our Fave Shows Were on Cinemax?

You know, we've been occasionally tuning in to the new late-night Cinemax series Forbidden Science -- for research purposes, of course -- and we gotta say, it's got a real Fringe vibe to it. On the show, 4Ever Innovations is a company engaged in a lot of cutting-edge science -- clones, memory implants, robotics -- all of which somehow guarantee that its users will be having sex with somebody during the course of an episode. (Think Massive Dynamic from Fringe, but with intentions as erotic as their name.) And it got us thinking... what if other popular shows were adapted for late-night Cinemax viewing? We've eroticized some of our favorites to see how they stack up.

TWoP 10: Characters Who Should Return to Their Shows

TWoP 10: Characters Who Should Return to Their Shows

Most of the time we complain about characters on shows that we just hate with a passion and hope would go far, far away. But occasionally shows could be livened up by the reappearance of an old character (and no we don't necessarily mean the dead ghost ones, Denny). Hence the reason we're pretty psyched that George Clooney finally decided to bring back his hunky Dr. Doug Ross to ER (which is the only acceptable reason for them adding on extra episodes) before the show signs off. So we've compiled another list of characters that need to return to their old posts, stat.

To Be or Not to Be George

To Be or Not to Be George

I don't know what the hell is going on over at Grey's Anatomy lately (and I'm not just talking about the disaster that is unfolding on screen). My pal Ausiello at EW says T.R. Knight quit. That always reliable source Us Magazine says that he's not going anywhere. I'm leaning towards believing Ausiello, but I'm totally biased. Frankly, all I can hope is that the formerly adorable and now useless George gets the hell out of dodge and takes his little dog too (and by little dog I mean that whiny bitch Katherine Heigl... in case that wasn't clear enough).

Spoiler Alert(?): McDreamy's McMansion

Spoiler Alert(?): McDreamy's McMansion Dang Gina! Talk about some serious sleuthing (translation: people have waaay too much time on their hands). According to E Online's Watch with Kristin, a little investigation of the sound stage where Grey's Anatomy is filmed has revealed that the spot normally taken up by the set for Seattle Grace Hospital is now home to a large, to-scale model of a McDreamy McMansion, leading Grey's nerds to speculate that Meredith and Derek are, like, totally shack-y up-y!

An Open Letter to Shonda Rimes

An Open Letter to Shonda Rimes

Dear Shonda,
It's been a while, but that's because your show has actually been kind of pretty good lately. Thank goodness for that whole writers' strike mess, right? Anyway, I heard that you'd been considering killing off Katherine Heigl's character on Grey's Anatomy and just had to drop you a note to say that I'm behind you all the way if you choose to go down this path.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not a bloodthirsty person, I don't need her to have a helicopter dropped on her head or anything like that. But killing her off would solve a lot of problems, and by offing her instead of sending her off to New York or something, you wouldn't have to worry about her begging to come back two years down the road when her movie career has fallen flat and she desperately realizes what an idiotic mistake she made badmouthing the hand that feeds her.

TWOP 10: Life Lessons My TV Taught Me

TWOP 10: Life Lessons My TV Taught Me The producers responsible for The Baby Borrowers will be airing a reunion special on August 6th in order to defend their show and prove that it's "more than just entertainment." Apparently, in light of all the recent (lousy) press, executives feel they need to prove that the show is really teaching teenage couples -- and, by proxy, America -- an important life lesson about parenting. With this in mind, I came up with my own list of the ten invaluable life lessons TV has afforded me. I don't mean to brag, but think I've got the world pretty well figured out. And I didn't even have to leave my couch!

Daddy Dearest: Our Tribute to TV Fathers

When it comes to TV, there are way more fabulous and high-profile roles for moms and the poor dads get the short shrift. However, we spent minutes weeks hunting through Wikipedia and our collective minds the annals of television for the best and worst TV dads that we could remember. Well, at least these are the ones that left an indelible mark on us, and not with wire hangers or anything (though we may not put that past some of the dastardly daddies on our naughty list). So in honor of Father's Day, here's our slapped together long-awaited list in alphabetical order (because we just couldn't decide if Jack Bristow or Keith Mars would be the No. 1 perfect patriarch).

Katherine Heigl is Asking for It

by Mindy Monez June 12, 2008 10:25 am
Katherine Heigl is Asking for It Katherine Heigl withdrew her name from the Emmy submissions this year because she hates the Grey's Anatomy writing staff and doesn't care who knows about it. She told the L.A. Times:

"I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials."
