Who Went Home on SURVIVOR?

December 1, 2010 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Survivor

I’m the first one to admit it. I wouldn’t last one night on SURVIVOR. Hell, I can’t sleep if there is a fly or a spider in my house.  But then again, I wouldn’t try out for the show in the first place. But thousands upon thousands do try out. Very few make it every season. Of those who do, each week someone who would rather be in the game than at home or on the jury is voted off the island. Needless to say, what went down tonight was kind of infuriating.

BONES: Stephen Nathan on the Booth-Brennan-Hannah Triangle

Filed under #1 featured, Bones

Love her or hate her, chances are if you’re a BONES fan, you have an opinion on Hannah.

Ever since she appeared on the scene earlier this season fans have had a, um, vocal reaction to Booth’s current girlfriend. And no, that reaction isn’t a surprise to the people behind BONES.

In part two of our chat with BONES executive producer Stephen Nathan (read part one here), we talked about the fan reaction to Hannah, the blossoming Brennan-Hannah friendship and what that means for the relationships between Booth & Hannah and Booth & Brennan.

Are You Ready for the Delicious TOP CHEF: ALL STARS?

December 1, 2010 by  
Filed under Top Chef: All Stars

Tonight at 10pm is the premiere of TOP CHEF: ALL STARS, where fan favorites from past seasons (none of which are former winners) will be pitted against each other in what promises to be a lively battle of culinary badassness. There is no shortage of talent in this group, and if their previous appearances are any indication, we will be served plenty o’ drama.

It’s hard for me to even pick a winner. So many of them were my favorites. Elia, Casey, Jennifer, and Tiffany Derry were all my favorite women of their respective seasons. My heart broke a little when Tre was voted off too soon. Carla was pure joy to watch, and I wanted to be friends with her.

But I think I’ll be rooting for Richard Blais. He was consistently good, confident without being a douche, creative, and passionate about molecular gastronomy without it being overkill (i.e. Mr. Foam-everything Marcel).

I’m also excited to see how Spike does. He’s the only one whose food I’ve actually tasted – at Good Stuff Eatery in Washington, DC – and he makes a burger that leaves me speechless. He could probably use the ego boost, too (not.)

Speaking of egos, there’d better be a smack down between equally conceited Fabio and Angelo. And between Fabio’s thick accent and Angelo’s often unconventional behavior, there’s bound to be some misunderstanding. Arrogance and confusion. Delicious.

Comments Off on PSYCH’s Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson and Corbin Bersen Talk TWIN PEAKS

While PSYCH’s TWIN PEAKS homage is very much an episode which any fan of PSYCH will appreciate, there’s no denying that something extra special happened when seven former TWIN PEAKS actors reunited to play parts in the hour.

Give Me My Remote talked with PSYCH cast members Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson and Corbin Bernsen about their connection to TP, plus what it was like to witness a reunion 20 years in the making… Read more

Comments Off on Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee and Catherine Coulson on PSYCH’s Homage to TWIN PEAKS

When several members of TWIN PEAKS agreed to appear in the PSYCH homage, which airs this evening on USA, there was an added bonus: a reunion.

Yep, as it turns out, some of the cast hadn’t seen each other since TWIN PEAKS was canceled in 1991. So with the 20th anniversary of the cult series right around the corner, Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Feguson), Catherine Coulson (The Log Lady), Robin Lively (Lana Budding Milford), Lenny von Dohen (Harold Smith), Ray Wise (Leland Palmer) and Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) happily came together once again for PSYCH’s love letter to the show.

Give Me My Remote chatted with Lee, Coulson and Wise — who is reprising his PSYCH role of Father Westley in the hour — at a Paley Center’s event honoring PSYCH and TWIN PEAKS.

Take a look…
