Hello BONES fans! We’re in the final stretch of season 10, and this episode, “The Woman in the Whirlpool,” did a nice job moving several storylines forward.

Comments Off on MR. ROBOT: Watch the Pilot for the New USA Network Drama Now!

USA Network is officially debuting its newest drama, MR. ROBOT, on Wednesday, June 24th. But to help promote the show, they’ve also made the pilot available online in the weeks leading up to its TV debut.

Per USA, “MR. ROBOT follows Elliot (Rami Malek, “The Pacific”), a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night.  Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian Slater, “The Adderall Diaries”) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect.  Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.  The series also stars Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”).”

Comments Off on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT Highlight: Drew Lynch Gets the Golden Buzzer

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT returned on Tuesday night, and the show wasted no time in bringing emotional auditions.

One of the standouts was Drew Lynch, a comedian, who developed a stutter after a baseball injury. Not only was Lynch funny, but he impressed AGT judge Howie Mandel so much, Mandel pushed the “golden buzzer” — a move each judge can do just once, and which brings Lynch directly to the live rounds.

LIMITLESS: Heather Kadin on Bradley Cooper’s Involvement, and Why It’s ‘SLEEPY HOLLOW 2.0’

Many of the new shows next season are based on familiar properties, but the new CBS drama, LIMITLESS (based on the 2011 film starring Bradley Cooper), is in the rare position of actually having an actor from the original project attached to the series. (Cooper is an executive producer on the CBS series, in addition to his appearance in the pilot.)

And though Cooper’s involvement with the pilot was known (and heavily teased in the trailer), CBS boss Nina Tassler raised a few eyebrows when she said he’d actually recur on the series. LIMITLESS executive producer Heather Kadin is a bit more realistic about what that might mean, given his very busy schedule.
