VIDEO: Showtime's Episodes Brings Joey Tribbiani Back to TV — Sort Of

Episodes

After a five-year absence from TV, Matt LeBlanc is back.

The 43-year-old actor stars as a version of himself in the upcoming Showtime comedy Episodes, which follows a British couple as they adapt their hit TV show about a boys' boarding school for American audiences.

Their troubles begin when the network executives ask them to cast LeBlanc, who played the handsome and oafish struggling actor Joey Tribbiani on Friends.

Weeds Finale Post-Mortem: Creator Jenji Kohan Says Show May End After Next Season

Weeds

Smoke 'em if you got 'em, because Weeds may not be around much longer.

In Monday's sixth season finale, Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) sacrificed herself by claiming responsibility for the murder of Pilar. She was last seen surrounded by FBI agents at the airport, while her family was on a plane headed for Europe. Once again, it looks like Nancy's out of options. Or is she? Will we next see her plotting a season-long jail break? Series creator Jenji Kohan says getting stuck in major jams is certainly nothing new for Nancy.

Creator Jenji Kohan on Weeds' finale: "It's the end of a journey"

"We always tend to write ourselves into a corner to a certain extent," she says. "Everyone goes home, rests and comes back fresh and says, 'All right, how are we going to get out of this sh--? What have we done?' There were vague discussions of what's going to happen next year, but there's nothing definitive in the works yet."

Kohan talks to TVGuide.com about Monday's cliff-hanger, why the upcoming seventh season may be the last, and whether Nancy will be wearing an orange jumpsuit when the show returns... read more

Weeds' Alexander Gould Gets a Killer Promotion

Weeds

If you're just starting to watch Weeds, you might want to stop reading. Because at least one of the main characters, Shane Botwin (Alexander Gould), is currently undergoing a dark metamorphosis.

Gould was shocked when he read the script for the show's fifth season finale, in which his character, Shane Botwin, clocks and kills Pilar, his mother's nemesis, with a croquet mallet. Because of that murder, Season 6 takes place on the run, and an ever-darkening Shane isn't exactly remorseful. Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) has tried to reboot her wayward son's moral education, but, well, Shane has always been a little off. Gould, now 16, tells us how Shane has changed over six seasons, why he loves playing Shane as a mini-Dexter and whether he thinks he's capable of killing again.

"I was dying to do it," Hatosy tells TVGuide.com "I enjoy doing all that [cop work], but to kind of stretch the muscles a little bit and step outside that world was exciting.

"It's so surreal," he continues. "When you think about what it is that [the Dexter crew does] daily, with the blood and strapping people to tables, it's just a unique type of employment."
