Mega Buzz on Grey's Anatomy, Lost, House & More

Sara Ramirez by Bob D'Amico/ABC, Terry O'Quinn by Art Streiber/ABC, Robert Sean Leonard by Art Streiber/Fox

Senior editors Matt Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions — "live"-ish from the TCA press tour in Los Angeles.The other Callica (Grey's Anatomy's Callie and Erica) fans and I are dying for some info! There's the pregnancy rumor which has been addressed quite a bit, but there must be something else! Are they officially a couple? Or is Erica too emotionally stunted? — AllyMatt Mitovich: Oh, the poor Callica fans and their cute little couple name. You will see that things are... awkward... between the two docs when Grey's returns. (And the pregnancy rumor, I hear from one source, is hogwash.)Any scoop on my two favorite Lost characters, Locke and Desmond? — KristenMickey O'Connor: Well, sorta. On Tuesday I spoke to Katey Sagal, star of the new FX series Sons of Anarchy. She told me that she has become a huge fan of Lost since shooting a guest arc as Locke's coulda-been love interest, Helen. Sagal says she would love to return, and even has her own theory as ... read more

I realize that being a TV ...

Question: I realize that being a TV critic puts you in a unique situation. If you were a book or a movie critic, you would be reviewing a final project that never changes — you can watch The Love Guru 10 times and it will still be what it was the first time: tacky. However, television is different. TV shows are constantly evolving. I would think most television shows have the potential to improve over the first season or two as the writers get a better handle on characters and plots. (Although I think most shows have a point where they get worse as writers struggle to be innovative and characters grow stale.) The reason I bring this up is that I wonder if, as a TV critic, you often change your mind about a show over the course of a few seasons and what would make you change your mind. Do you continue to watch shows that you have initially reviewed negatively? For example, I know that you really panned Criminal Minds when it started, and I would have agreed. However, I think the show ... read more

Exclusive: Luke Perry Is a "Very Dark" Criminal

Luke Perry by Charley Gallay/

What started with taking Brenda's tender flower and then hit new depths with that doomed jaunt to Mexico (behind Jim and Cindy's backs, no less!) now has apparently spiraled into full-on crime. Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Luke Perry has been booked for a guest-star gig on CBS' Criminal Minds this season, filling the "very dark" role of a baddie. A spokesperson for the Eye confirms that Perry will appear in one episode, airing toward the beginning of the season.What's your take? Think Luke can bring the ominous and sinister just as well as Frankie Muniz? Was that question rhetorical? — Matt Mitovich read more

Mega Buzz on Heroes, Criminal Minds and More!

David Anders by Justin Lubin/NBC; Thomas Gibson by Michael Desmond/CBS; Alex O' Loughlin by Cliff Lipson/CBS

Please tell me we haven't seen the last of David Anders as Adam Monroe on Heroes. — StacieMatt Mitovich: No, Heroes fans have not seen the last of Anders. And that's the truth. (Now would you be so kind as to tell my sons that good things come to those who say please?)Newly converted "vitch" here. Think you could dig up some scoop on Bones or Criminal Minds for me? — LaurenMitovich: "Vitch"? Really? Hmm. There's Bones buzz in the new Mega Minute vodcast. As for Minds, remember the SUV that went kablooey in the finale? It belonged to a main character, and he will emerge "impaired" as a result. Have you heard anything about when BSG will return with the final episodes? – AnnaMitovich: The bad news: No sooner than January 2009, Ron Moore told us just last week. The good news: There is talk of getting a "bonus" 11th hour in that batch. A Sci Fi rep deftly responds, "As written by Ron, the phenomenal finale script extends beyond the time allotted for the episode. We're ex... read more

After seeing that explosive ...

Question: After seeing that explosive finale for Criminal Minds, I have to ask: Is someone leaving the show?

Answer: I'm guessing not. When asked who got blown up in the episodes final seconds, exec producer Ed Bernero said in this week's issue of TV Guide, "The person who's injured is the right person to have been injured, and it will all make sense when you see the rest of this story." Notice how he said injured and not killed? Notice also how I repurposed a fairly innocuous quote from the magazine to distract you from the fact that I really don't have an answer to your question? I'm sneaky like that.

Cheers: You Do Know Jack!

Cheers to Jack McGee for resuscitating his career post-Rescue Me. The fireplug character actor killed himself as Chief Jerry Reilly on FX's drama — then committed potential career suicide by publicly trashing costar-cocreator Denis Leary for the plot twist. Yet McGee has continued working steadily with guest shots on CSI, CSI: Miami and now Criminal Minds' season finale. As a hard-nosed NYPD detective, the real-life FDNY vet proved he's equally adept at playing New York's Finest as well as New York's Bravest. He's truly a Jack of all trades.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Premise: A procedural thriller about the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, which profiles criminals to solve crimes. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case. Unlike other crime dramas that focus on science, this series is very cerebral and almost Holmesian in its deductive analysis of the crimes and their perpetrators.
