Matt's TV Week in Review

Carl Lumbly

This was a good week for welcoming back familiar and much-missed talent to some very good shows. Let's start with one of cable's underdogs, TNT's gritty and gripping police drama Southland, which introduced Carl Lumbly (who'll always be Dixon from Alias to me) as the squad's militaristic new captain, Brucker. "Our job just got harder," grumbles one of the grunts. Bad for him, good for Southland. Pledging to command a pro-active patrol, with Mickey D applications at the ready for those who screw up, Brucker's mantra is: "We protect! We serve! And we kick a— till we smell s---!" Yeah, he's that kind of boss.

Ratings: Alcatraz Has a Solid Showing in Week 2

Sam Neill

Alcatraz — which last week made Fox's strongest dramatic series debut in three years — didn't have too many escapees, losing just about 10 percent of its audience in its second week, according to Nielsen overnights.

It also fell just to 3.0 from 3.3 among 18-to-49-year-olds from the two-hour debut — making it the season's third new drama series to post a rating of at least a 3.0 in its second week (after Terra Nova and Once Upon a Time).

First Look: Castle Gets Sexy

Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion

Perhaps no series is better suited to a 1940s film-noir homage than ABC's Castle, which goes back in time on February 6.

"Castle comes across a diary that links the events of a murder back to 1947," explains exec producer Andrew Marlowe. "As he reads, he pictures himself as a '40s P.I. and Stana [Katic, who plays Beckett] as a gangster's moll who owns a nightclub. Our fans will... read more

I hear there's going to be a kiss in Castle's 1940s film noir episode. Is that true? — Erin
ADAM:
After chatting with Stana Katic, my money is on a kiss... and much, much more. "What fans will see is probably the fulfillment of what most any fan would like to see happen with the Castle and Beckett relationship," Katic says of the episode, in which Castle daydreams about a detective who falls in love with a gangster's moll (played in Castle's fantasy by Beckett, of course). "Fans will be seeing the ultimate expression of love for those two characters." Ultimate expression of love? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

For one, they're not together. ... read more
