Keck's Exclusives: New Roles on Glee, CSI, Life Unexpected, Torchwood

Liz Vassey, CSI

As the fall season approaches, shows are looking to add some new characters.

Glee is adding a new high school jock named Sam, who is described as very good looking. Though he plays football, Sam must also have a strong singing voice. Sounds like he could be at the heart of the season premiere, which is titled "Audition." Sam also sounds a lot like the character Chris Colfer told me they were conceptualizing for Kurt's new boyfriend. If so, our little Kurtie scored big time! My advice to Sam: if you like it then you should put a ring on it!

Wallace Langham and Liz Vassey

What do you get when you cross Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and CSI? Wallace Langham tells TVGuide.com it's the perfect mix for lab-rat Hodges to get some alone time with longtime crush Wendy (Liz Vassey) at a sci-fi convention. Thursday's CSI (CBS, 9 pm/ET), written by former Star Trek and Battlestar scribes, features not only Hodges and Wendy but also Battlestar's Kate Vernon and creator Ronald D. Moore. Langham talked to us about Hodges' superiority complex, fantasy life, and slight idealization of Wendy's breasts. read more

April 12, 2007: ?

A question mark. That pretty much sums up my feelings for this episode of CSI. What a bizarre ride this one was. I'm an outspoken guy and usually have plenty of words to convey my feelings, but I'm not sure what to say for this one. I can't take the straight-up recap approach because there was only about 10 minutes of new, interesting substance. So instead, I'm going to bullet-point my thoughts and you can feel free to comment on them. — First of all, half of this episode was like a bad greatest-hits CD. Greatest-hits CDs are made for the casual fan or the newbie who's never listened before but would like a good summary of an artist. This episode wasn't even career-spanning but rather one of those late-period throw-offs. I would take a bet that the majority of regular viewers of CSI would have been able to remember the basics of the previous miniature crimes without having to recap them like this. I understand the other lab techs had to be brought up to speed, but there had to ... read more
