Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine

Star Trek fans will be able to get a sneak peek of Star Trek Into Darkness, the highly-anticipated second installment from J.J. Abrams — but they'll have to go see The Hobbit in order to do so.

Weekend TV: New Steel Magnolias, Simpsons' Halloween Special, PBS Goes Upstairs

Steel Magolias

Is there a more perfect Lifetime movie property than Steel Magnolias? This tragicomic celebration of female bonding through gossipy good times and bad, all while getting their hair done at Truvy's Beauty Spot in suburban Louisiana, has been a crowd-pleaser since its first incarnation as an off-Broadway stage play (my preferred version, where the men are kept entirely offstage). The epitome of a leave-'em-laughing-while-weeping heart-warmer, Magnolias reached its pop-cultural apex in the all-star 1989 film version, but its can't-miss universality is underscored in Lifetime's oddly genteel but ultimately affecting new TV-movie (Sunday, 9/8c), whose big twist is in the casting of an all African-American ensemble. read more

Question: I am so mixed about the new Glee. I really like the New York storyline. I love seeing Rachel and Kurt's adventure and growth in the big city. It seems like a breath of fresh air compared to the mundane life in Ohio. It seems the Ohio storyline is just recycling old storylines with carbon copies of old characters. Do you think Glee will just abandon McKinley altogether after this season, because I don't think I can handle another season of the Glee Club trying to go to Nationals. — Lauren

20 Burning Questions From the Revolution Premiere

Tracey Spiridakos and Billy Burke

I can't say I was surprised that the premiere of Revolution Monday night left me with far more questions than answers (after all, the series is produced by Lost mastermind J.J. Abrams).

The Daily Review: Revolution, The Mob Doctor, Perception Finale, Bones, Alphas, More

Emily Deschanel

Where were you when the lights went out?

That scenario, which has been played for comedy in the past, is the stuff of escapist fantasy-adventure in the more appealing and promising of two new network dramas premiering tonight. NBC's heavily hyped Revolution (10/9c) follows a long line of high-concept quick fades including The Event (same network, same night), Terra Nova (same night, different network), FlashForward, V, Alcatraz and so on. Will this make the grade where so many others failed? read more

Can Revolution Break the Mystery Show Curse?

Tracy Spiridakos

Many shows have fallen victim to the three most cursed words in recent TV history: "the next Lost." Ever since the island drama debuted in 2005, networks have been scrambling to re-create the series' irresistible combination of poignant drama and the bizarre supernatural. Unfortunately, most shows that try to fill those shoes — FlashForward, The Event and Alcatraz, to name three — have floundered within just a season. Does NBC's latest foray into sci-fi mystery genre, Revolution, have what it takes to break the curse? read more
