BACKSTROM Finale Recap: ‘Rock Bottom’

April 30, 2015 by  
Filed under Backstrom

Hello BACKSTROM fans! What did you think of this season (and possible series) finale, “Rock Bottom”? We see Backstrom’s health catch up with him as Dr. Deb realizes he hasn’t quit drinking or smoking or (worse in his mind) lying about it. I thought the episode was pretty good, and it was nice to see some payoff from earlier plotlines. There is a lot to discuss, so let’s get to it! Read more

BONES Recap: ‘The Big Beef at the Royal Diner’

April 30, 2015 by  
Filed under Bones

Yo yo yo BONES fans! It’s time to celebrate, as with this 206th all-time episode,  “The Big Beef at the Royal Diner,” BONES is the “Longest-Running One-Hour Drama for Producing Studio 20th Century Fox”! Congratulations to all involved! We’ve been celebrating here all week with a look at what has helped get the show to 206 episodes.

I thought this episode was funny and pretty cute. I figured it would be from the promos, and I was sort of dreading that the show was going to temporarily backburner some other more serious plots they have created in the past few episodes. I am the first to admit that I jumped to conclusions; this episode did a nice job at least keeping tabs on the current ongoing storylines. There is a lot to discuss, so let’s get to it! Read more

BONES 206: The Long Haul

Hey there, and Happy BONES Day!

The BONES 200th episode was such a huge milestone and production that it’s no wonder the 206th episode may come and go with a bit less fanfare. But, as fans, we know that the 206th is special—after all, there are 206 bones in the human body! With that in mind, we wanted to do a little something special to mark the occasion.

We found a list of all 206 bones (thank you Wikipedia!) and were surprised to learn that all of the bones can be grouped into five categories: vertebral column, chest, head, arm, and leg. From there, we assigned each category a show representation:

  • Vertebral Column (What’s the backbone of the show?)
  • Chest (What are the defining emotions or heart of the show?)
  • Head (What is unique in terms of the show’s smarts and respect of intelligence?)
  • Arm (What’s the show’s outward focus; how does BONES affect culture?)
  • Leg (What has carried the show over the long haul?)

Between Sunday April 26th and today, we’ve covered one entry per day. We have our thoughts, and we also have input from some of the cast and crew of the show. We’ve covered the backbone , the heart , the head , and the arm/outward focus of the show, and now it’s time to talk about what has carried the show over the past 10 seasons!

Comments Off on AQUARIUS: NBC to Make All of Season 1 Available Post-Pilot Airing

nbc_logo.jpgNBC is making a big move in the way shows are released: the new David Duchovny-led, Charles Mason-origin drama, AQUARIUS, will have its entire 13-episode first season released online and via video on demand after the show’s two-hour premiere airs on NBC on May 28th.

“With ‘Aquarius’ we have the opportunity to push some new boundaries to give our audience something no broadcast network has done before,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement. “We are fully aware how audiences want to consume multiple episodes of new television series faster and at their own discretion, and we’re excited to offer our viewers this same experience since all 13 episodes of this unique show have been produced and are ready to be seen. I appreciate the enthusiasm we’ve gotten from the producers of the show and our partner Marty Adelstein of Tomorrow Studios to launch this series in a new, forward-thinking way.”

The entire series will be available for four weeks post-pilot premiere via the streaming and VOD platforms. AQUARIUS will continue to air Thursdays at 9 PM on NBC in the meantime.

Comments Off on REVENGE Ending on ABC

revenge-emily-vancamp-thumbREVENGE is ending after four season, executive producer Sunil Nayar told EW.com. (ABC has not responded to a request for comment.)

Speculation had been buzzing for a bit that the show was nearing its end — and the finale’s title, “Two Graves,” was part of the Confucius proverb that was displayed in the show’s pilot — but ABC had been mum about its fate until now.

Are you OK with REVENGE ending?

The TrapTHE FLASH continues its crazy-good streak with tonight’s new hour, “The Trap,” as the team sets out to get Wells to confess to his misdeeds…while not tipping him off that they’re working behind his back.

Personally, I found “The Trap” to be one of the best hours THE FLASH has done so far…an impressive feat, considering how consistent/enjoyable/good the series has been so far. And with only a few hours until the episode airs, I wanted to offer a few teases about what goes down…

PERSON OF INTEREST took a little bit of a detour from the looming wars with the last episode as Reese set out to solve one of Carter’s unfinished cases (and he nearly died in the process). But as we approach the final two episodes of the season, things are about to explode.

“As usual, we get to the end of the season, [and] we like to break things,” PERSON OF INTEREST co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan laughed.

And with those broken things to come, some familiar faces won’t make it out of the season alive.
