With the long Memorial Day holiday this weekend, let's have some fun and play a game!We've actually played this game before, last October. I had a different blog back then, called "DVD Guy", and I called the game "Today's Stars...Yesterday!" We all had a great deal of fun, and lots of readers chimed in with their own examples of big-name celebs they've seen "in smaller roles, during leaner times".The way to play is very simple: Think of hot "new" stars that you see in any current TV show, and try to think of where you've spotted them on DVDs of older programs. Probably only slightly older shows, but there's absolutely no limit. Let's just have a blast with it! I'll give us several examples, just to get us started: Grey's Anatomy wrapped their fourth season last night, and the younger Dr. Grey wrapped her first full season in the show. Chyler Leigh's straight-laced turn as "Lexi" might not make her recognizable, though, to the few of us who saw her as punk-rockin', spike-m...
Question: I'm probably one of many writing in about this, but you'll have to suffer through one more. I've seen only a few episodes of Boston Legal, enough to know that I didn't really enjoy the show but can see how people would like the characters. I even respect James Spader's work. He was excellent on The Practice way back when, and I'm assuming he's carried at least some of that over to the spin-off. But really, Emmy-worthy? This is even his second win, isn't it? I just don't understand it. Never mind the fantastic competition (Kyle Chandler and Matthew Fox off the top of my head) that weren't even nominated, but what could the voters have possibly seen to give him the award instead of their last chance to honor James Gandolfini for what will certainly go down as one of the more legendary roles in television history? Is it because the show is on HBO? Is it because it's a fundamentally flawed voting process and most of the voters never even watched Tony Soprano's work the final ...
Question: Don't you think that maybe there's way too much hype for Private Practice? Every time I see a show get this much hype, it falls on its face. I've got to tell you, I'm not real impressed with the cast, and at least for me, Kate Walsh was a weak link on Grey's Anatomy. Your thoughts?
Answer: I actually grew to like Kate Walsh as Addison on Grey's. My problem with Private Practice is that this show is turning Addison into a blithering Ally McBeal clone, obsessing on workplace kisses with Tim Daly and dancing around the house naked. If there's a strength to the show, it's the very telegenic ensemble, if they're ever given grown-up material to play. As for the hype element: What, you expected ABC to underpromote this one? A lot is riding on ABC's all-new Wednesday lineup, and if Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money (both getting large promotional campaigns as well) can benefit from the presold nature of a Grey's spin-off, that would be a plus. On the other hand, you're entirely
