LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT Season 13 Promo

Comments Off on LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT Season 13 Promo

Yes, season 13 of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT is going to look a bit different — in case you hadn’t heard, Chris Meloni (Stabler) is gone, BD Wong (Huang) is off filming NBC’s AWAKE, Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino have joined the series and fan faves Diane Neal (Casey) and Stephanie March (Alex) will return for multiple episodes — but NBC seems to be downplaying the differences.

In the promo below, it seems like business as ever for Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson, and the only real acknowledgment to the changes is when Olivia tells Casey that Pino’s character isn’t her new partner, she’s “just showing him the ropes.”

Take a look at the teaser for that, a glimpse of upcoming guest star Kyle MacLachlan and more…

CASTLE Season 4 Premiere Pictures

August 31, 2011 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Castle

Oh, ABC, you tease.

We’ve all seen those buzzworthy promos, and now that you’ve released 34 pictures from the season premiere…well, there is a certain something missing.

Don’t get us wrong, we like the pictures. The one random behind-the-scenes picture (which includes director Rob Bowman) was a pleasant surprise and it’s nice to see Penny Johnson Jerald in her new setting.

But, um, where are the pictures (or heck, a single shot) of Castle and Beckett together?

Take a look at the semi-spoilery photos…

Vodcast! The One Where Danielle and Marisa Talk Fall TV

August 31, 2011 by  
Filed under Vodcast

Here’s the thing — I love television.

Yes, that’s not a big secret, but I do. It’s a fantastic medium that constantly surprises and delights me. And I know every day how lucky I am to do a job I love so much.

But apparently despite talking about it on this amazing website, on Twitter and during our weekly GMMR TV chats, there are still things I want to say. So what’s a girl to do?

Vodcast!

I teamed up with my friend Danielle Turchiano (from Made Possible By Pop Culture) and we chatted about which new Fall shows already have us sucked in, which shows have charmed us, and more…

Comments Off on THE SIMPSONS Season 23 Preview, Plus An Animation Domination Promo

Homer Simpson is getting kidnapped!

Sure, it’s not the first time THE SIMPSONS patriarch has found himself held against his will (after this many seasons, what hasn’t happened to the family?!), but this time he has a familiar face to help him out — Kiefer Sutherland. (Who, um, also has lent his voice to the series before.)

Check out a preview of THE SIMPSONS season 23 and an Animation Domination promo, which features a glimpse of the new season of THE CLEVELAND SHOW, FAMILY GUY and AMERICAN DAD!

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Season 7 Promo Raises Romantic Questions

August 30, 2011 by  
Filed under How I Met Your Mother

If you are a HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER fan who was intrigued by the photo of Robin and Barney dancing from the upcoming season premiere, you’re going to love the teaser for the special one-hour season premiere.

Not only are the duo tearing up the dance floor, but the voice-over also teases a wedding (future Barney? Or perhaps they just mean Punchy?) and a hookup.

Will it be Robin and Barney? Who knows. But once again, CBS is pushing their relationship angle, so let’s hope there is some sort of payoff…

WAREHOUSE 13 Recap: ‘The 40th Floor’

August 30, 2011 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Warehouse 13

Hey, Warehouse 13 fans! This week’s episode, “The 40th Floor”, was intense from start to finish, right?

One thing I loved about it is that the entire team worked together to solve the same case. It made the episode seem less choppy and more cohesive when it flipped from scene to scene and character to character. Also, since the characters were experiencing (mostly) the same plot, it allowed for good character development–especially for Steve Jinks, who really got to see firsthand how ‘dedicated’ Mrs F is to the warehouse. More on that later.

Tuesday TV! Check out the lineup below!

Pretty Little Liars | 8pm on ABC Family | Midseason Finale
“Over My Dead Body”
Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer have made a crucial mistake – they told someone about “A” and now they must pay the price. With the clock ticking and “A” calling the shots, the girls are sent on missions to do “A’s” bidding in order to save their trusted confidant. Each mission will ultimately lead to what the four liars want the most, but at a costly price to their loved ones and themselves. Can Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer go through with their given tasks in order to save one, or will they ignore “A” to save those around them from being hurt? And ultimately, will this matter when all is said and done? Nothing is ever as it seems in Rosewood, PA.

BACHELOR PAD 2: Melissa is Crazy, Blake is a Snake and Michael-Holly Need to Work Out Their Issues.

August 30, 2011 by  
Filed under Bachelor Pad

After last week’s abrupt ending to BACHELOR PAD, Monday’s brand new episode picked up right where they left off.

However…it was pretty boring.

When a show abruptly and awkwardly ends that way, you’d think they were building up to something amazing, but Jake barely put up a fight. He warned the other contestants to start voting off the power couples, told Kasey it was good to meet him and told Vienna he had closure.

“I’m kind of glad to be out of that f***ing crazy house,” Jake said as his limo drove away from the house.

So, a bit of a let down, no? Given the way they ended it last week and with no promos, they successfully hyped up a non-event.

However, Jake wasn’t wrong about the house being crazy. In fact, I’m pretty sure half of that crazy came from Melissa by herself. When Blake snubbed Melissa to take Holly on a date, Melissa lost her mind. Crazy. Completely crazy.

GLEE Season 3 Spoilers: Back to School with the Cast of GLEE

Filed under Glee, Glee Spoilers

Some of you might be going back to school this week, but sadly the kids of McKinley High don’t return until September 20th.

Luckily, we’ve got a sneak peek of the new season of GLEE to tide you over until then.

Check out Rachel, Finn, Artie, Kurt, Puck, Mercedes, Santana, Mike and Britney as they strut their stuff in the MHS cafeteria. Go behind-the-scenes with the actors as they talk about what it’s like to be back-to-school and back on the set of GLEE.



Noticeably absent from this particular scene? Quinn Fabray, Lauren Zizes and Blaine Anderson (probably still at Dalton at this point. Who knows?)

Catch anything worthy of discussion? And could you recognize the voices of the songs playing in the background? Were they GLEE tunes? (The last song sounded a bit like Kevin McHale, but I couldn’t tell for sure.)

John Krasinski & Alec Baldwin’s Baseball Rivalry Takes a Dark Turn

August 29, 2011 by  
Filed under 30 Rock, John Krasinski, The Office

It’s probably not going to come as a big surprise to you that my favorite commercials of the moment are the New Era Yankees/Sox rivalry spots featuring THE OFFICE’s John Krasinski and 30 ROCK’s Alec Baldwin. Also not a surprise – I am very much in the Sox/Krasinski camp. (Hell, I’d take up permanent residence if I could.)

So it’s my great pleasure to bring you the latest installment in this baseball-themed comedy rivalry. Things have taken a dark turn as the two teams get closer to post-season play. A dark turn, indeed.



And in case you missed it, here’s a little behind-the-scenes, making of featurette with Krasinski and Baldwin.



Are you loving these spots as much as I am?
