Episode Recap Call WaitingYikes Im afraid Brad Pitt may have been down this road before Does that box contain nah sweet lil Prison Break wouldnt do that Right But the look on Lincs face Maybe it was just full of Celine Dion CDsLets back up So James Whistler is wanted back on the outside because he like took some scientist type to a remote location on his charter boat I was having trouble following that if only because it was so much exposition and so soon What happened to the Prison Break that fed us crumbsI have to say Im a bit disappointed in Sucre He came back to Linc only to get some of the lost millions I thought he was back to join Team Scofield-Burrows Do you think weve seen the last of him or will he resurface later to help save the dayThis episode answered one burning question I had how an inmate is notified of a visitor since there are no guards Somehow they are expected to hear the PA speaker over all that jail-yard clamor Great s read more

inFANity Behind the Scenes of Ugly Betty

First things first, it's a little overdue but I have been wanting to say, "Congratulations, America wins!" (Makes for a great headline, eh?)America Ferrera, the 23-year-old lead actress who sets the tone for the ABC show Ugly Betty, went off and won herself an Emmy. Not that all the other prizes, most notably a second season, aren't gifts enough, but good for her. She does a nice job and better than that, after visiting the set twice, I can tell you that people without provocation sing her praises. I didn't get to meet her, unfortunately, because "of the demands on her schedule," but that's what people say. (But don't worry, you'll see a lot of America when you tune in to inFANity. I just didn't talk to her. I'm past it now.)I did, however, get to meet the others, many who are terribly underrated. Take, for example, Michael Urie, who plays Marc with a C. Sure his character is flamboyant and, you might say, expected. Next time you watch, though, pay attention to the details. The thea... read more

Why Dog Whisperer Resonates

Karma by Lisa Joyner

In general, Americans love their dogs. Make that, they are in love with their dogs. To say we pamper them would be a study in subtlety. Granted, there are something like 650 million dogs in the country, but come on! There are doggie spas, pet day care centers, animal baubles, trinkets and chew toys, plus clothes and tiny parkas. We look for the best organic treats, holistic acupuncture, canine therapy, and the most social dog parks. It is the human who creates the puppy pedestal. Giving to them fulfills us. All our animals really want is food, exercise and a good scratch. (From time to time a spot at the end of the bed goes over well too)Having said that, I am guilty of the deepest in canine adoration. I admit it, I am not proud nor embarrassed, however my Karma and Holden are very special. (Bet you’ve never heard that before)The oldest, named because of her meditative gift and overall sweet disposition, was sent to me for a reason. Karma rescued me. True, I physically went to ... read more

inFANity: Behind the Scenes of General Hospital

Even in this TiVo age of immediate information retrieval and the YouTube universe, it's impossible to know everything about all shows television. The only way we (and when I say we, I mean me) can tap into the antiquated version of hands-free entertainment is to call upon a higher power for guidance. Obviously, first I grab a TV Guide (duh), and then what would really help is a fan. The heart and soul of inFANity! A person who knows the show inside and out. Just a bit short of a stalker.So for my set visit to the hit daytime show General Hospital, a show that has arguably delivered more outrageous story lines and the most memorable TV wedding ever, I enlist the queen of all things GH, my niece Brittany. At the tender age of 21 (hold on to that while you can), she is able to exhaustively disseminate the minute details, plot points, characters and hairstyles of Port Charles' most notable residents.My mini-me acted as a portal into story line, dialogue and who was the hottest guy.

Behind the Scenes of Wheel of Fortune

It’s time I come clean, allow it to be public record. Fess up. This is full disclosure -- I have always secretly longed to be a game show host!Yes, a prize package pushing deal or no deal come on down put it in the form of a question broker! For some reason until now I have been unable to come to grips with my shameful secret. I am not sure why.They are cool. They are funny. They are articulate. They move at the speed of sound. And... they work 2 days a week. (You see where I am going?)Oh, and in the case of Pat Sajak, they make it look incredibly easy. He is an artist, a composer, and a venerable lyricist in the field of game show communiqué. I’m not kidding. (Well maybe the last part) What is so awesome about them (and you can go back to the days of Bill Cullen, early Bob Barker, and Bobby Rivers. Yes, Bobby Rivers. Remember Bedroom Buddies?) is how they navigate 22 minutes and you never feel the boat move. When lights blow, a contestant is paralyzed with debilitati... read more

inFANity Behind the Scenes of The Young & The Restless

Genoa City’s Bitter SecretWhen you hear the word “SOAP” what do you think of? A cleansing compound made of natural oils and fats? An obnoxious, but admittedly catchy television jingle? (Zestfully clean, zestfully clean! You’re not fully clean unless you’re zestfully clean!) How about an attractive girl in full cosmetic glory drawing in air while posing seductively with a bar of Lever 2000? (How do they do that without getting soap in their eyes?)Whatever you “visualize,” go far enough and an image of a desperate woman scorned, a ruggedly handsome man lying breathlessly in a hospital bed, or TWINS -- one evil, one virtuous -- is bound to pop up.The serialized drama or soap has been an American television mainstay since the 1940s. (The Guiding Light started as a radio drama in 1937.) Synonymous with soaps is The Young & The Restless.I don’t care if you have never turned on the award winning show even once. (Seriously, I have no financial inc... read more

InFANity: America's Most Wanted Behind the Scenes

America’s Most Wanted, or AMW as it’s referred to in the “biz” (a concise and arrogant definition for the entertainment industry), is the cornerstone of the Fox network. Long before American Idol, way prior to 24, and just on par with Homer and Marge, America’s Most Wanted quietly began what would become a revolution. Sounds ominous. Well, my unsullied readers, it is!How many TV shows change lives? Not Lost. Not Heroes. Not Grey’s Anatomy. Not even Dancing with the Stars. DWTS doesn’t change lives, even if it does affect them. (Mario was robbed!) But whatever, I’ve moved on.America’s Most Wanted, a show directly descended from a horrific tragedy, is the genesis of reality TV here in the U.S. It is brutal, earnest and a contradiction of what much of today’s reality TV is (for example, The Bachelor, Martha and The Flavor of Love). I’m not saying there isn’t room for frivolous rudimentary spectacle, but America’s Most Wan... read more
