There's something about a man in uniform. That slow, simmering attraction between Bunheads widow Michelle (Sutton Foster) and surfer dude Godot (Nathan Parsons) officially gets hot in Monday's episode (9/8c, ABC Family) — hot enough to brings in the hooks and ladders.
"So far we've only seen Michelle and Godot making out and trading barbs but things take a turn when there's a wild fire and he shows up in full firefighter gear," says Parsons. "She has no idea he's a volunteer with the Paradise fire department and really likes what she sees. In fact, that uniform works so well I'm thinking of getting one in real life!"read more
It's hard to imagine Dallas without J.R. — a sentiment shared by many when Larry Hagman passed away last Thanksgiving, midway through production of the rebooted soap's second season. Even harder not to contemplate that sad future while watching TNT's two-hour premiere (Monday, 9/8c), where once again the veterans wipe the floor with the young whippersnappers. None more gleefully than Hagman, whose gaunt frailty can't mask the devilish glint beneath those statuesque eyebrows.read more
The one thing a potential guilty pleasure can't afford to be guilty of is boredom. Just look at the current standard-bearer: ABC's outrageous Scandal, with its whiplash plotting and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue delivered at such hyperspeed you don't have time to dwell on the berserk absurdities, because you're having such a blast. NBC's tepid new mystery-soap hybrid Deception (10/9c) deceives itself if it thinks it belongs in that gonzo company. It even pales next to the diminished second season of Revenge, which needs to refocus on the Emily-vs.-Graysons dynamic and forget the Initiative — yawn — ever existed.
