If We Controlled Youre Remote… 6/21/12

Can I just say a few things about last night’s Vegas episode of So You Think You Can Dance? One, I know my favorite girl of the season so far. Two, poor girl did them a favor by pairing up with a guy to perform as his partner after she’d already been put through and ended up getting kicked in the head…which impeded her performance, and she got sent home. Oh damn. And finally, three… The pop locker dude, Cyrus, is pretty cool. I don’t know how well he would do in the show, but I like him a lot. Oh, and Travis Wall? Gets hotter every time I see him. LOL But that was last night. Read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

The new comedy on TBS, Men at Work, wasn’t something I thought I’d stick with originally…and then I watched the premiere. I have loved every single episode. The cast is terrific (wasn’t a fan of James Lesure’s character on Mr. Sunshine, but loved him on Las Vegas, and now in this one, he’s fantastic. I really adore the other guys, too.), and the show just never fails to make me laugh. I look forward to seeing this show every week. I think my favorite episode has to be the one where Milo & Gibbs had a threesome (twice…) with a really hot chick. Or maybe it was when the guys were sure Amy was cheating on Neal. Neal confronting the blind guy was hysterical.

On tonight’s episode, “Crazy for Milo,” testing a lie-detector app reveals some tough truths for Gibbs and Tyler; Amy and Neal experiment with role-playing; Milo’s girl turns out to be a bit kooky.

Laugh along tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Men at Work @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Take Me Out, Burn Notice, and Saving Hope.

Interview with Elijah Wood from Wilfred

Tomorrow night, FX will re-air the Wilfred Season 1 finale at 10/9c, followed by a special second season preview episode at 10:30/9:30c. Earlier this week, I had the great opportunity to participate in a press conference call with Elijah Wood, who plays Ryan on the show. In the series, Ryan is a depressed lawyer who, for some reason, sees his neighbor’s dog, Wilfred, as an adult man in a dog suit. The two of them hang out—often while smoking pot—and Wilfred always seems to talk Ryan into some scheme that could get him in trouble.

Elijah was such a friendly and genuine guy—and certainly different from Ryan. You could really sense his joy and excitement for his work on the series.

Jump with me to see what he had to say in response to my questions, followed by some other highlights from the call. Continue reading

TV News – 10/25/10

Can you believe this is the last week in October? Is everyone ready for Halloween? We are in the process of moving, but I promised my daughter that we’d be moved before it was trick or treating time. She’s going to be a dalmatian, which really isn’t surprising seeing as she loves dogs. Well, now that you are all bored with my regular life details, let’s look at TV news. 🙂

FX has ordered a new live-action comedy series, Wilfred. The series stars Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings), and Jason Gann () and is based on the Australian series of the same name. Wood plays “Ryan, an introvert who struggles to find social and professional happiness, until he meets ‘Wilfred’ (Gann). Everyone else sees Wilfred as a dog, Ryan sees him as a man dressed in a dog suit.” Gann co-created and played Wilfred in the Australian original. I’m actually looking forward to seeing this series because I am a fan of Elijah Wood and this is the first time he’ll star in a regular TV series. Expect Wilfred to hit your television in the summer of 2011.

More after the jump. Continue reading
