Yo, Adrienne! She's famous for playing kickass broads — from Broadway's original Rizzo in Grease to divorcee Carol Traynor in the landmark sitcom Maude to the snake charmer Ruthie in HBO's Carnivale — and now Adrienne Barbeau is doing it again on General Hospital. She joins the ABC soap August 12 as Suzanne Stanwyck, a Christiane Amanpour-type foreign correspondent who runs an organization that helps exploited children. And she doesn't need Angelina Jolie. Suzanne's goodwill ambassador is international mega-model Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo)! Barbeau is a pro at conquering new genres and winning new fan bases. After Maude, she turned horror-flick scream queen (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing). Later, she became ...

Question: First, thanks for your insight on all things TV. I have you to thank for many of my favorites (FNL, VM, BSG), and I was curious about the new HBO series True Blood. When I heard that Alan Ball was picking up the reins of this show, I bought the first book in the Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire series and was immediately smitten. She creates a very fun alternate world full of fascinating characters that could make for really great TV. I was further interested when it was announced that Anna Paquin was cast in the lead, though less so about Stephen Moyer (who was far from intriguing in The Starter Wife). Do you have any thoughts on True Blood?
Answer: I'm curious about this show, too, but I won't have any real thoughts to share until I actually see it. I haven't done my homework yet, but I'd like to read at least one of these books (reading, what a thought) before sinking my teeth — sorry — into the adaptation. I love the idea that HBO is getting back into the genre of the

Question: One more note on the demise of Deadwood: The difference between HBO canceling these shows before their conclusion versus regular television networks canceling shows is roughly analogous to the difference between a movie theater shutting off the projector two-thirds of the way through the film because the bosses want to save money on their electric bill versus a theatre company canceling a free performance of Shakespeare in the park because not enough people show up. With the free Shakespeare performance, it might make me sad that I wouldn't get to see the full show, but, hey, I wasn't paying for it anyway. But with the movie theatre, I'd be completely outraged — wouldn't you? — because I'd paid for a specific service. I can't imagine going back to a theater that would treat its customers like that — and if they did it twice in a row? Forget about it! Sorry about going on and on about this HBO deal, Matt, but having been burned twice, with Carnivale and now Deadwood, a lot of ...
