Comments Off on Couch Madness: The 2020 Winners!

And now, we have our first winners! Keep reading for the shows that went all the way with “Ghost,” “The End,” “Requiem,” “Bound,” “Tabula Rasa,” and “The Ghost in the Machine.” (You can also check out all the previous brackets here.) Read more

Comments Off on Couch Madness Final Round: ‘Ghost(s)’

In honor of what should have been NCAA tournament season, Give Me My Remote is running our own kind of bracket, pitting similarly titled episodes against each other: Couch Madness! (Credit for the excellent name goes fellow reporter Chris Hayner.)

The seeding is simple: rather than quality, we’re going by air date (with the oldest episode getting the #1 slot and the newest getting #8). With Peak TV, this will not include every single show that has used this title; rather, we picked a selection from what was available.

It’s now up for the final round, which will run from Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 10.

First up in this last match-up? “Ghost.” (Or “Ghosts.”) Keep reading for the bracket, episode descriptions (from IMDB), and the poll. (For the other episodes competing, check out all the brackets here!) Read more

Alexi Hawley has been steadily working for the past decade, but he acknowledges his time on CASTLE was special.

“The people, definitely [stand out],” he says. “It really was a family. That’s the biggest part: the cast and the crew and the writers I worked with. A lot of them are still friends of mine.”

CASTLE: Nathan Fillion Reflects on the Series

On March 9, 2009, a ruggedly handsome mystery author and a badass NYPD detective quasi-reluctantly teamed up to solve crime. Over eight seasons of CASTLE, Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) bickered, bantered, fell in love, got married, and started their own family—albeit with some major twists and turns along the way. (Though the series’ 2016 finale wasn’t planned, the showrunners shot an alternate ending which they placed at the end of the episode instead of a cliffhanger.)

For Fillion, who got his first real big break on ABC’s ONE LIFE TO LIVE, the series continued his long-relationship with the network. (He had also been on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and TWO GUYS AND A GIRL prior to CASTLE; post-CASTLE, he’s appeared on MODERN FAMILY, AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, and reunited with CASTLE’s Alexi Hawley on THE ROOKIE.) But, as he acknowledges in the video below, the 173 episodes he did of the Andrew Marlowe-created series is his “greatest success, in a lot of ways.”

Over eight seasons, CASTLE’s Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) bantered, solved crimes, and eventually started a life together. Now, Andrew Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller—two of the biggest forces behind CASTLE—are back with a new romantic-dramedy to help fill the void.

In TAKE TWO (airing Thursdays at 10/9c), ABC’s newest (light) procedural, actress Sam Swift’s (Rachel Bilson) shadowing of private investigator Eddie Valetik (Eddie Cibrian) quickly leads to something more: a genuine partnership, as Sam realizes she actually enjoys this new gig.

Eddie, for his part, isn’t immediately thrilled with Sam’s presence…but he does appreciate the new business she’s bringing in. And in Thursday’s episode, “The Smoking Gun,” Sam is once again able to prove her worth, including using her acting skills to get some much needed evidence.

But what comes next? Marlowe and Miller broke down why they were drawn to do TAKE TWO, how they’re handling a will they/won’t they relationship in 2018, and why CASTLE fans may want to keep their eyes peeled on an upcoming episode…

Kris Polaha has signed on to recur on CASTLE, a rep for the show has confirmed.

Polaha — who most recently was a series regular on BACKSTROM — will play Caleb Brown, an “idealistic public defender.” Naturally, his line of work will have him butting heads with newly-appointed Captain Beckett, and the rest of the 12th Precinct.

TVLine was first to report the casting.

Are you excited to see Polaha on CASTLE?

Comments Off on CASTLE: ‘PhDead’ Photos

CASTLE just went through a massive shake-up, but I have to admit, the title of the next episode (“PhDead”) is currently cracking me up.

No, it doesn’t help the fracture in Castle and Beckett’s relationship. And the title does refer to the case of the week — a frat member is killed, so Castle goes undercover as a professor. But on the bright side, Castle and Beckett seem to be making some progress?

Check out some photos from “PhDead”…

"PhDead" will air on MONDAY, OCTOBER 5 (10:01-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Mitchell Haaseth) MOLLY QUINN

Monday night’s television was all about one thing for me: THE X-FILES trailer. (Sorry, every scripted full-length show.)

And with us getting into week 2 of TV, that also means I’m already behind on some shows (sorry, CBS, I promise I’ll catch up on SCORPION and BIG BANG today). But some big things went down, so let’s talk about last night’s TV… Read more
