Chuck deserves a whole season, not just 13 episodes. Any chance of more? — Darryl
MATT: Actually, yes. NBC entertainment president Ben Silverman says that while the current plan is to deliver 13 midseason episodes, depending on the ratings, "we may extend it out and continue it through the summer," where he thinks it could pair nicely with Friday Night Lights. "We're looking to ... keep [Chuck] incredibly viral and buzz-worthy until it returns, and then hopefully have it on our air for many years to come." That'd be Awesome. And even more so? I chatted up Scott Bakula at TNT's upfronts luncheon, and he's game for more Chuck, if need be.
Any scoop on Gossip Girl's Season 3? — F.R.
MICKEY: Speaking with TVGuide.com at the CW upfronts, Leighton Meester seemed to confirm that Georgina's plan to ...
Billy Campbell by Anthony Mandler/USA Network Photo
Billy Campbell (The 4400, Once and Again) has landed the lead in Sci Fi Channel's Revolution. The two-hour pilot is set at a 22nd-century Earth outpost, and chronicles civil unrest among the colonists. Campbell will play Tom Hart, a soldier-turned-farmer who just may turn soldier again as he emerges as a leader of the rebels. Also among the cast, says the Reporter, are Steve Sandvoss (as Campell's son) and Rowena King (as the governor of the colony).
Lets take stock of where we stand going into the season (series?) finale: Tom, Meghan and Diana are no longer pretending that Tom is really Tom, and in order to save him, Diana may have killed him. Kyle distrusts Cassie more than ever now that pretty much everyone shes told him to trust has betrayed him. Shawn and Dannys mother could be dying, and Collier is possibly Marked. Think they could have packed any more in?The Baldwin/Farrell clan really cant catch any breaks, can they? On the upside, Shawn, Kyle and Danny are now all Promicin-positive with few ill effects. On the downside, it looks like Mrs. Farrell may be dying from the shot and Tom is lying in the back room of a home-goods store with two bullets in him courtesy of Diana. Isabelle needs to extract herself from that extended family posthaste.On the whole, the episode really was one of those good-news/bad-news kinds of nights. We got Curtis Peck back (good), then Tom killed him (bad). We can kill off...
For most of the episode, I was really feeling sorry for Diana, since she was being betrayed by just about everyone she cared for. Then Drew Imroff blew his brains out. Not only did this guy lose most of his fortune and have his companys reputation ruined, but his Marked buddies decided this made him too much of a liability. Whats that saying? True friends stab you in the front?Their plan is to implant Drews personality into Jordan Collier not exactly a low-security candidate. Im not sure about the long-term viability of the plan, but then again the Marked know how the future turns out, and I dont, so Im not going to judge. On the other hand, based on what weve seen in the last two episodes, it might be a moral step up for Jordan to be someone else for a while, as he presumably wont be intent on seeing half of the planet die. Of course, considering the Marked hate P-positives, maybe its trading one side of this genocide for...
Holy flurking shnit. Best part of this truly stellar episode? It had to be Richards line about his daughter not being a moody toddler (Oh, Isabelles had her moments). It looks like shell be having more of those types of moments in the future, considering Tom wants her to get her powers back, but at this point, that should almost be the least of everyones worries.Not only did we find out that Tom is in fact one of the Marked, we now know that hes got Matthew Rosss old personality. Oh, hes also got Isabelle locked up in Kyles old room, he shot poor Richard and Cora with enough tranquilizer darts to take down a rhino, and his Marked personality is responsible for Isabelle who, by the way, is an adult again coming into being in the first place. OK, this new Tom is a total jerk, but its great to see Joel Gretsch stretch his acting muscles a little bit and play someone completely different. On the ...
It would be really nice if just once Tom could have a fun, conflict-free day. Getting lucky and having a lucky day apparently do not go hand in hand. Its good to see that he and Kyle are, if not exactly back to being a normal family, at least not averse to working together. Im not sure if theyre more or less dysfunctional than the Tylers, but at least they dont seem to be on totally opposite sides anymore.As for the Tylers, well, it could be an SVU plot if it didnt also involve telekinesis and reverse aging. Lets not forget that Richard did try to kill Isabelle at the end of last season, and has now kidnapped her, drugged her and turned her back into a toddler. Im shocked any parent would voluntarily return to the diaper days, but to each his own. Whats interesting about this whole situation (besides, you know, the whole going from 20 to 2 in a day via the amazing antioxidant powers of water), is that weve witnessed a complete ro...
