Two stunning posters for the CW’s supernatural show THE SECRET CIRCLE. Like the posters say, catch it on the CW on Thursdays 9/8 central.
Back in 2003, movie star Alicia Silverstone gave TV a shot with her very own romantic sitcom MISS MATCH. The show starred Silverstone as a Los Angeles matrimonial attorney who doubles as a high-end matchmaker. The catch, of course, is that her own love life is a mess. Yeah, saw that coming, didn’t ya? Anyways, it didn’t exactly work out, as the show only lasted one season. Besides Silverstone, MISS MATCH also co-starred Lake Bell, who, let’s face it, hasn’t had a whole lot of luck with TV shows. She’s been in a TON of canceled shows, and like Silverstone, seems to have more luck on the big screen. Too bad, because the sight of two lovely lasses like Silverstone and Bell on the same TV screen on a weekly basis was nothing to sneeze at. First (and only) season promos for MISS MATCH below.
Next week’s episode of SUPERNATURAL, the awesomely titled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil” will feature a reunion for BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (and ANGEL) alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters as a married couple, with Carpenter playing a witch with bad, bad powers. Which is a twist, as on their previous shows, it was Marsters who had the fangs and was prone to bad things. Promo images from the upcoming episode below.
So, uh, yeah, Bones is pregnant. The show sort of dropped that on us at the end of last season, and as season 7 commences, it looks like Bones is showing her baby bump. It probably helps that Emily Deschanel is also pregnant in real life. In any case, I guess there really wasn’t a whole lot of places for the show’s writers to take the show, and at least they didn’t make some stranger we’ve never heard of knock Bones up. If they had to get her preggers, making Booth the daddy was probably the way to go. Happy now, shippers?
The oh so lovely Alona Tal played Jo Harvelle in a couple of seasons of SUPERNATURAL before she was unceremoniously killed along with her mother in true, gritty SUPERNATURAL fashion — literally blown up battling hell hounds, if you can believe it. Well if you’re a fan of show, you probably already know that Tal will be guest starring as Jo once again — as some kind of spirit/ghost/apparition or some such, though judging from the trailer it’s a pretty big part, and not one of those blind-and-you’ll-miss roles. Glad to see Tal back, even if it’s just for a one-shot appearance. Wish they’d bring her back for good, though, the show is seriously lacking that hot blonde element…
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: A former CIA badass must summon his old skills in order to save an endangered love one. Except this time the badass is a woman, and is being played by Ashley Judd. Despite that, yeah, it’s kind of a pretty well tread premise, but hey, maybe it’ll work? In any case, Judd returns to TV with the new action-drama MISSING, which has been shooting for a while, and even released some promo images and a trailer, but have been kind of missing since. Get it? Ahem.
I don’t know if I like the idea of Kiefer Sutherland running around a TV show getting his ass kicked. I mean, it’s Kiefer Sutherland! Jack Friggin Bauer! But anyways, that seems to be the case in his new Fox show TOUCH, which finds the former CTU badass playing the single father to a son who doesn’t talk, but who seems to have powers or something. The show also co-stars former UNDERCOVERS babe Gugu Mbatha-Raw, whose name makes me all giggly all over. Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Say it out loud if you don’t believe me. Anyways, first promo images and a 3-minute video preview trailer below for your viewing pleasure.
WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE is the Disney show that made Selena Gomez famous. That’s pretty much its biggest claim to fame. Oh sure, I suppose it’s kind of an okay kids show, too, but let’s face it, the show’s big draw has been and will always be Selena Gomez, who has moved on to major star mode. Time will tell if she’ll go the way of Hannah Montana, i.e. bust out of the “kiddie star” arena into full-blown skankhood, but until then, here are some Gomez and the rest of the WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE gang from Season 2.
Oh, TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, why did you have to get canceled? It was probably because of the long ass title. Why couldn’t they have just gone with “Terminator”? I mean, what’s wrong with that? That’s a cool title for a TV show. Anyways, one of the show’s star was Summer Glau, late of FIREFLY, who played a killer cyborg from the future. She was, uh, future-tastic on the show. By which I mean, she can terminate me anytime. Here are some early choice promos featuring the lovely Ms. Glau. Damn, I miss this show…
FOX’s big-budget TERRA NOVA TV show takes place billions of years in the past. Well, after it takes place a few dozen years in the future, it then skips to the past. You know, back when dinosaurs walked the Earth? Yeah, that far back into the past. It’s possibly the most expensive show FOX has ever done, or pretty damn close. Which means it better bring in the ratings or it’s a goner real fast. Anyways, Season 1 and pilot episode promos below.
Promo images and a sneak peek video from TERRA NOVA episode “Instinct”, in which the Shannons battle killer birds. Prehistoric, dinosaur killer birds.
Leave it to the FX Channel to think outside the box and greenlight a show like AMERICAN HORROR STORY. This thing doesn’t look like anything on TV right now, and that’ll either keep it on the air for years to come or get it canned after season 1. Either/or, it’ll get plenty of chances on the FX channel, where instant ratings aren’t nearly as important as on the main networks. Here are promos for the show’s upcoming first season.
I love SUITS. It’s easily one of my favorite shows on TV right now. And the funny part? I didn’t think I’d like it. I mean, it’s a show about lawyers. Lawyers! I usually hate shows about lawyers. Almost as much as I hate shows about doctors (unless they’re, you know, crazy like House in HOUSE). But SUITS? Great stuff. I recommend watching it if you haven’t been partaking. Here are some season 1 promos of the cast.
Genre fans first spotted the incredibly gorgeous Andrea Parker when she first showed up on the NBC show “The Pretender”, playing a cold as ice character named … Miss Parker. Yeah, like she wasn’t going to get that job, right? After “The Pretender” left the air, she joined the sitcom “Less Than Perfect”. Hell if you were to ask me, Andrea Parker was the only reason to watch that show. It, too, eventually got canned, but that hasn’t stopped Parker from working regularly on TVland. Her most recent stints include guest spots on “Desperate Housewives”, “Suits”, and “Pretty Little Liars”. Here are a some promos of Parker from her most two well-known shows, “The Pretender” and “Less Than Perfect”.
