My Name Is Earl broke ground on Season 4 in style with two back-to-back episodes With last seasons storylines left in the dust getting back to the shows roots was nothing less than a breath of fresh air After an hour filled with some of the funniest new TV moments Ive seen in a while I couldnt ask for more but I wanted to anyway In the first installment Earl Jason Lee recalls having once ruined Buddy Zaks wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation when he was just a boy himself When he sets off to make it up to Buddys mother he finds Buddy still alive and all grown up A film enthusiast Buddy asks Earl to produce his dream movie in exchange for crossing him off of the list However the only available actors are Camden Countys usual cast of clowns It also doesnt help that the film 2 The Max is ridiculous Seth Green brings on the funny in the role of Buddy and looks like hes enjoying every minute of it With all of his recent work in animation Family Guy Ro
Kudos to Earl for taking a little break from the coma-dream storyline whether or not youre a fan of that you have to admit it felt good to watch Jason Lee perform some more traditional protagonist duties Not only that but this week was filled with quite a few standout lines and performances It was an episode comprised of nearly non-stop flashback and it worked wonderfully Randy decided to run another karma errand for Earl by attempting to make amends for an incident in which their parents vacation was ruined Of course he had to finally fill them in on the little details Earls in a coma and oh yeah he was in prison for a while there too At Earls bedside straight-laced Carl Hickey relives the vacation incident which turns out to be an epic tale involving a duffel bag full of marijuana Beau Bridges and Nancy Lenehan always turn in great performances as the elder Hickeys but they shined especially bright this time around The scene of them as youths at W
Question: I'm a faithful reader of yours, and I'm hoping that you might share what you've heard about the possibility of Lifetime's Side Order of Life returning for a second season. It didn't seem to get much attention after its premiere, but I found it to be a charming little show for Sunday evenings to help me ease back into the work week. I particularly enjoyed Diana-Maria Riva's performance as Vivy. It was great to see a strong yet vulnerable woman fighting a devastating disease with such grace and aplomb, not to mention being treated as sexy and desirable without being skeletal-thin! There was enough resolution in the finale that I can accept it as the series ending, but I would enjoy checking in to see how these characters have proceeded with their lives. Any word on its fate?
Answer: No word yet. Lifetime is currently in development mode, shooting two pilots (one with Lorraine Bracco and one with Beau Bridges and Anne Archer), and I'm told that once they're completed, the
Well, its all come down to this: 10 seasons. Over 200 episodes. Adventure. Laughter. Tears. And as this is the last episode of our journey together, I will make this my last TV Guide blog entry.Thanks be to all of you who have grown with us over the years. It has been a true pleasure, and one Im sure I will not see the likes of again. The years have gone by so fast
so fast. So much has changed, in my life, and in the lives of those around me. And Im sure of yours too.I was reminded as recently as yesterday how much can happen in 10 years. I shared a conversation on the plane with Katee Sackoff (of Battlestar Galactica fame — for those living under boulders) who enlightened me that she used to watch the early seasons of Stargate with her father
when she was 17. Holy crap. That aged me.I was a single boy of 26 years when we took our first steps through the gate, and now I speak to you as a father of three at 36 years old. It really does fly, doesn...

Beau Bridges with Jason Lee, My Name Is Earl
Beau Bridges returns to NBC's My Name Is Earl tonight at 8 pm/ET, reprising his role as Earl and Randy's gruff dad. But Carl Hickey's bark is worse than his bite. "Just when you think he's going to bite Earl's head off," Bridges says, "he ends up being a milquetoast." Of course, there's some family history behind Carl's ire. "When Earl shows up at my door, I try to slam it in his face," says Bridges. Carl, he explains, still hasn't quite forgiven a younger Earl for driving a beloved car into a lake. After Earl dredges the car out and returns it to his dad, in fulfillment of his "list" requirement, familial relations are restored in that wacky and caustic Hickey-family way. Now that Bridges isn't commuting between the Vancouver set of

Melissa Anderson, 10.5: Apocalypse
If you thought NBC's 10.5 pushed the envelope when it came to heaping natural disaster upon natural disaster, you ain't seen nothin' yet. The new 10.5: Apocalypse (May 21 and 23 at 9 pm/ET) picks up immediately after the harrowing events of the original and continues the devastation, threatening to split the North American continent right down the middle if super-seismologist Kim Delaney and her team of FEMA heroes can't find a way to glue God's green earth back together. Playing first lady to "President" Beau Bridges in the sequel is Melissa Anderson, who has come a long way — 25 years, in fact — from her Little House on the Prairie days.

ConvictionI've had many obsessions in my life — love, shiny jewelry, chocolate — but none as devastating as Law & Order. My addiction to Dick Wolf's franchise (save for the deservedly short-lived Trial by Jury) has distracted me from finishing freelance assignments, deprived me of adequate sleep and even chased away a boyfriend or two. That said, Wolf's new series Conviction — which technically isn't part of the L&O family, even though it stars Special Victims Unit's cast
