Falling Skies: Comic-Con Scoop on the Skitters, Plus a "Well-Earned" Romance

Falling Skies

A year ago, Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood made a relatively quiet appearance at Comic-Con International, showing only a trailer and taking some questions about their upcoming alien invasion series Falling Skies. With little to go on, the crowd had to keep its enthusiasm in check. What a difference a year made. At Friday's panel for the show — now a summer breakout hit for TNT — Wyle, Bloodgood, cast mates Drew Roy, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter and their producers took the stage of the San Diego Convention Center's Room 6BCF, which was filled with adoring and energetic fans. Moderated by TV Guide Magazine editor-in-chief Debra Birnbaum, the panel featured a lively Q&A session and clips of upcoming episodes...

Roush Review: HBO's Bloody Good Sundays

Anna Paquin

This weekend, HBO fills out its summer Sunday lineup, as the final season of Entourage (begging the old "that's still on?" question) joins the red-hot True Blood and a resurgent Curb Your Enthusiasm, which airs its most uproarious episode of the season to date.

Let's take it from the top — or should I say, over-the-top — with a nod to True Blood (9/8c) for delivering the goods this season, adapting one of Charlaine Harris' best-ever storylines from the Sookie books and providing Alexander Skarsgard with a tour de force as the newly vulnerable Viking vampire Eric Northman. All memory of his majestic demonic past wiped clean by a possessed witch who's in over her head (the riveting Fiona Shaw as Marnie), Eric is like a lost child, playfully impulsive and clearly smitten by his caretaker Sookie but easily chastened and profoundly confused as to his true nature.

Comic-Con: Shameless Stars on Nudity and Alcohol

Emmy Rossum

They may not be the usual Comic-Con fodder, but nevertheless, Showtime's panels for Shameless, Homeland and Dexter filled Ballroom 20 for a day-one ending discussion about TV without borders.

Moderated by TV Guide Magazine's L.A. Bureau Chief Michael Schneider, the Shameless leg of the panel teetered on NSFW, as Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy opened up about playing members of TV's most messed up brood. "Just because people have addictions and dysfunction, that doesn't mean there isn't love in the family," said Macy, who began the session with a series of dry-witted comments about preparing to play hard-living alkie Frank Gallagher. Rossum defended the show's copious nudity. "It's nothing but a body!" she said, going on to claim that she feels she has exposed more emotionally playing devoted daughter Fiona than she has physically.
