Our favorite ballerinas are coming back to primetime.
In today's news of things nobody asked for...
We're finally going to meet a certain mother on CBS!
So many new DVD sets! So little time/space! Barring our sudden ability to manipulate time and space, we're gonna do these rapid-fire style. Do not feel slighted, little DVD sets -- you are all important. To somebody.
We meet the next potential victim of a Jill Zarin friendship, and Tron gets adapted to a TV series in today's news...
It's Fourth of July weekend! Rooftop parties, fireworks, and red, white and blue diabetes-inducing cocktails. Can't wait. And in line with the whole proud-to-be-American theme that will be beating all of us over the head non-stop for the next few days here in the States, I thought I'd expose some of our most beloved American television characters who are being played by non-Americans. It's like the fun version of the Commie witch-hunt from days of yore. And remember, they can't just be Australian and playing Australian or something, like, say, Jesse Spencer on House. They have to be pretending to be American to count. They also have to be currently on television, all you Anna Friel people. Happy Independence Day, America! There are aliens in disguise all over your TV!
The news that the producers of The Real Housewives are creating a spin-off with an all-male cast has shaken us to the core. The traditionally woman-centric franchise, changed to be all about men? Everything we know and believe has been turned on its ear! What's next, Mad Women starring Dawn Draper? Actually, that's not a bad idea. Here are some other shows that should get remade with their characters' genders reversed, either because they're already pretty great and we want more, or because they can't possibly get any worse. You be the judge!
It's too bad The Prisoner and The Fugitive never crossed over. Or The Guardian and The Mentalist, for that matter. They could have all worked in The Office! It sounds like a Tales from the Darkside episode waiting to happen. Coincidentally, many of those series came out on DVD this week.
A movie star jumps to TV, a TV star jumps to a different show, a former child star jumps ship and ski jumps get their own network. It's today's TWoP news! ...After the jump, of course.
