Comments Off on The Cast of DADS Talk About Getting the Full Season Order

There’s no new episode of DADS tonight (the show is being pushed for a special episode of THE X FACTOR), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for fans to be excited: Fox picked up the show for a full first season late last week.

I visited the set of DADS earlier this week and spoke with series stars Seth Green (Eli), Giovanni Ribisi (Warner), Peter Riegert (David), Martin Mull (Crawford), Vanessa Lachey (Camila), Brenda Song (Veronica), and Tonita Castro (Edna) about getting the back nine, and their reaction to getting the news.

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: Watch 8 Minutes of the Pilot

ALMOST HUMAN — the new futuristic cop drama from FRINGE boss J.H. Wyman and uber producer J.J. Abrams — is getting a big launch post-football on November 17th, but if you can’t wait until then, Fox and Hulu have released a snippet of the pilot online early.

These eight minutes aren’t actually the start of the pilot, but it does introduce you to a fair amount of characters in the world, including the first meeting of Karl Urban’s John Kennex and Michael Ealy’s Dorian.

Take a look!

ALMOST HUMAN is still nearly three weeks away from its two-night series premiere, but the show is already expanding its cast: a Fox rep confirms that John Larroquette will recur on the new drama.

Larroquette will play Nigel, who is described as “a genius roboticist who is sympathetic, highly intelligent and a bit broken.” No word yet on when he’ll make his ALMOST HUMAN debut.

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN Exclusive Video: Meet Michael Irby’s Richard Paul!

almost-human-featured-2

We’re less than three weeks away from the debut of Fox’s new drama, ALMOST HUMAN (a “buddy-cop” show set 35 years in the future — where crime rates have risen and every cop is partnered with an android — from former FRINGE boss J.H. Wyman), and while we’ve given you an intro to Michael Ealy’s Dorian, it’s about time to meet some of the people who will be helping to solve these futuristic crimes, don’t you think?

“Richard Paul lives on the edge,” ALMOST HUMAN star Michael Irby previews of his character in the exclusive featurette below. “He won’t take a bribe, but if he needs to bend the rules a little bit to get that conviction or to get that arrest, he’ll do what he has to do. He kind of goes against the grain, which I think is great that they hired me, because that’s kind of how I live my life.”

Take a look at the video for more from Irby, including his take on life in the future, footage of the other characters snarking on Richard (and him throwing some shade of his own), and more…

Tonight’s brand new episode of ONCE UPON A TIME explores Hook’s past, and his portrayer, Colin O’Donoghue, teased that fans might be thrown by what they discover.

“You get to see a side of Killian Jones that I think would surprise people,” O’Donoghue told reporters on set earlier this month. “And you sort of see a bit of backstory to him that is, I mean I can’t give away too much, but it’s really — I don’t think people will expect it.”

Of course, Hook is a bit of a mystery in present-day, too.

DRACULA: What You Need to Know About the New NBC Series

October 25, 2013 by  
Filed under Dracula

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, DRACULA…

DRACULA

Picture 1 of 4

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

NBC’s description: “New to England, Alex Grayson hosts a lavish party. He becomes fixated on Mina, a beautiful young woman who looks like his dead former love. Newly engaged to Mina, Harker grapples with worries over providing Mina the life she deserves.”

My take: I’ve watched the first few episodes, and there is no denying the show is gorgeous. But for lack of a better word, it lacks bite. It feels more destined to be at best a guilty pleasure versus anything more.

And the links to catch up on:

DRACULA premieres tonight at 10 PM on NBC.
