If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/25/10

I’m so excited it’s Monday! You don’t hear that often, I know, but really, Monday is one of my favorite nights of TV, so I’m thrilled. As always, let us know what you’re watching tonight!

This season of Chuck has been really strong and fantastic so far. Morgan has a much bigger role, since he is involved more and more with the spy stuff, and he couldn’t be more adorable doing it. Last week’s episode, with him in camo and sweeping around with a gun at the ready behind Casey was brilliant. I love that a show actually put the lead characters together, and while we see the romantic relationship between Sarah and Chuck come out each episode, it hasn’t taken over. I’d like to see him flash more, but there is still plenty of time left in the season!

TV News – 10/18/10

I understand the phrase, “Manic Monday”, even more today. Packing to move in less than 2 weeks, pregnant and a daughter home sick with a bladder infection makes for one tired and cranky mommy. Let’s see if I can brighten up my own day with some good news, and maybe I’ll amuse you while I’m at it. 🙂

NBC has been busy giving full-season pick ups to three of their new shows. The Event, Outsourced and Law & Order: Los Angeles, have all been give a full first season. I’m surprised by the pick up for Law & Order: LA because it hasn’t been doing particularly well in ratings. There is still no word on Undercovers or Chase, but if they gave LOLA a pickup I’d hope they’d recognize Undercovers with a pick up as well, wouldn’t you agree? Source

TV News – 10/15/10

TGIF! The news is scarce today so the post will be short but I hope that you all have an awesome weekend. Enjoy the news.

Necar Zadegan, who played the wife of President Omar Hassan on 24 last season, is going to be guest starring on The Event. She’ll play a “mysterious character named Isabelle”, but that’s all we know about her role at the moment. Odd that a character from 24 would guest star on The Event considering how much like 24 the show is becoming? I thought so too. Sourced

Interview with Jason Ritter & Blair Underwood from The Event

Stars Jason Ritter & Blair Underwood recently spoke to the press about their new show, The Event, which premieres tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

This new drama is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter, The Class, Joan of Arcadia), an Everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, Leila (Sarah Roemer), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history. Sean’s quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including: newly elected U.S. President Martinez (Blair Underwood, Dirty Sexy Money); Sophia (Laura Innes, ER), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Sean’s shadowy father-in-law (Scott Patterson, Gilmore Girls). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind. Ian Anthony Dale and Zeljko Ivanek (Damages) also star in the ensemble drama.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/20/10

I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited the new season is starting! There are a TON of shows on tonight. In fact, our recommendations are the premieres of 3 of brand new shows, so let’s get to it!

One of the most anticipated new shows of the new season is Hawaii Five-0 on CBS at 10/9c. This is the contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands’ sun-drenched beaches. It stars Alex O’Loughlin (Three Rivers, Moonlight) as Detective Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan (Entourage) as Detective Danny “Danno” Williams (yes, as in the line: Book ’em Danno!), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) as Chin Ho Kelly, and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica, The Cleaner) as Chin’s cousin, Kono. The reviews so far have been great, and any show starring Alex O is worth watching. 😉
