Silas Weir Mitchell
Perpetrators of violent crimes have often been called monsters, but on NBC's new crime procedural Grimm, which premieres Friday, Oct. 28 at 9/8c, the criminals are monsters -- both literally and literarily.
It turns out that Grimm's Fairy Tales isn't a work of fiction, but an account of supernatural creatures that the Grimm family has destroyed throughout history to keep humanity safe. Portland cop Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) has just discovered he's the last of that line of hunters, who have a gift of spotting the true, monstrous nature underneath the creature's magically mundane facade.
Enlightened, Laura Dern
HBO has a way of attracting big-time film stars to the small screen. With the Monday night premiere of Enlightened, the network's done it again with Laura Dern, who plays an executive who has had a "nervous breakthrough." We want to know what you thought of this show — and what you think of every new series this season.
For Pan Am star Christina Ricci, wearing the airline's iconic '60s flight attendant uniforms not only make her look the part, but also feel the part. And it all begins with squeezing into the historically accurate underwear.
"We have these undergarments that we wear, a girdle and a longline bra," Ricci told reporters in September. "The girdle keeps you from being able to do anything boyish like run or jump or take any large flights of stairs. The longline is a bra attached to a mini-corset so it basically makes you stand up really, really straight. ... You have to walk like a lady at all times, so immediately you're just put into this mindset of 'I'm a lady. I sit a certain way. I walk a certain way.'"
Eating brains was only part of the pleasure for Jewel Staite when she guest-starred on Friday's episode of The CW's Supernatural (9/8c).
"I saw that Jensen [Ackles] was directing," Staite tells TVGuide.com. "He's an old friend of mine, so I thought, 'Ooooh, fun! That would be great.' Luckily it all worked out. When you get on a show where one of the actors is directing, it can go either way. Sometimes they can stress out if they have too much on their plate, but he was so calm and so cool and so collected. He just really impressed me. We had some days we didn't even go the full 12 hours of shooting. We were let out early because he knew exactly what he wanted and when he got it, he moved on."
Lyndsy Fonseca, Nikita
In Season 2 of Nikita, Alex is working alongside Division — but that doesn't mean that she and Nikita will remain adversaries.
Even if Nikita did break her arm and shoot her in the leg. Bygones! "I think there was a lot of worry this season about 'Oh my God, Alex is turning evil, Alex is on the bad side,' and it's really not that at all," Lyndsy Fonseca tells TVGuide.com. "It's kind of the unfortunate situation they're in right now. There's still a lot of love, there's still a lot of hate. There are moments in the next few episodes where Nikita tries to help Alex, and there's moments where Alex warns Nikita about things."
Alexandra Breckenridge, American Horror Story
Glee bosses Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are used to making audiences cheer, but Wednesday night they did their best to make them cringe with the premiere of FX's American Horror Story. We want to know what you thought of this show — and what you think of every new series this season.
Devon Sawa, Maggie Q and Shane West
Devon Sawa sat down with TVGuide in Los Angeles to sip some coffee and dish about the return of his character Owen on Nikita Friday (8/7c on The CW). In "Falling Ash," Michael (Shane West) and Nikita (Maggie Q) are on the hunt to find Dr. Joseph Mars (John Ralston) as part of their Black Box Cleanup Tour. Owen, a former Division cleaner, has his own reasons to seek out the good doctor when he encounters them and decides to join forces.
Jason O'Mara, Rachel Bilson
Fox rewound the clock and thrust viewers into the prehistoric age with its sci-fi thriller Terra Nova on Monday night, while The CW debuted a kinder and less reptile-filled (except for that 'gator) drama, Hart of Dixie. We want to know what you thought of these...
Team Hodge Podge's Chris Hodgson, Team Lime's Jesse Brockman
After a coast-to-coast challenge and six defeated food trucks, the Lime Truck and Hodge Podge were the last two competitors in Sunday night's finale of Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race. Did The Lime Truck's take on fresh California cuisine drive laps around its rival? Or did Hodge Podge's fancier twist on comfort food propel it through the finish line first?
The final stop: Miami, where the first truck to make $15,000 and meet host Tyler Florence at South Point Park would win.
