One of my faves — William Devane, who hails from my hometown of Albany, New York — is bringing some of the sophisticated sleaze he displayed as wealthy Knots Landing playboy Gregory Sumner to ABC's Revenge. On the February 8 episode, William debuts as Edward Grayson, the father of Victoria's estranged husband, Conrad. "Edward's the guy who never ...

Question: After witnessing the amazing Lost finale, I've tried to think of other season finales that have left me totally shocked and awestruck, but none came to mind. I think it may be the best season ender of any show I've ever seen. I can't think of another season finale that was this well produced, plotted, acted and structured. Well, the Season 1 finale of Battlestar Galactica comes to mind, but even that one still doesn't compare to the masterpiece that was Lost's Season 3 finale. Can you think of any other season finale that so delivered on every single level?
Answer: If there's justice, that awesome season finale will clinch Lost a spot in this year's top five Emmy nominees. I agree it's a landmark episode, but I resist answering these sorts of "Can you think of any other?" questions because I'll always leave out something significant. Still, the first thing that came to mind was the first-season finale of 24, which ended on the stroke of midnight as Jack's wife died in his
It's been a month since we were last treated with a new episode. Was it worth the wait? For the most part, I'd say yes. These Marcia Cross-less episodes show just how pivotal both the actress and the character of Bree are to the show. But I think you'll agree that the consolation prize is pretty nice: No Bree = more Edie! Nicollette Sheridan rarely gets a chance to truly shine like she did tonight. That scene toward the end, with Edie undressing in front of Carlos, was one of Nicollette's best moments ever. It reminded me of her classic strip croquet scene from years ago on Knots Landing. She still has a rockin' bod. I loved Edie slowly shedding her clothing, literally and figuratively giving Carlos the naked truth, admitting that her breasts aren't as perky as they once were and that she has a C-section scar. Yes, Edie has her faults like not being the best mother and using her son Travers as "sex bait" but I'm glad Carlos gave her a chance (good move with the flowers...
Alfre Woodard, Desperate Housewives
Question: There has been a lot of talk about the supposed drop in quality of Desperate Housewives this season. I still find it highly enjoyable to watch, and I would argue that a breakout first season is very difficult to match, although some shows do pull it off. (Lost comes to mind.) My question, though, is about the presence of mystery or suspense on the show. The Mary Alice story line was part of what made the first season great, with its mix of drama and comedy. However, the part I have least enjoyed about the show this season is the mystery involving Alfre Woodard's character (and what a shame that such a superb actress has been so underused). Do you think Desperate Housewives needs to have a mystery as part of its show, or can it get back to the appeal of the first season based on the lives of the five main women alone?
Answer: Excellent question. One also posed by Jenny, who put it this way: "I am a very inconsistent (at best) viewer of Desperate Housewives, but from what I have
Gordon Thomson, Dynasty
Are you as psyched as I am for Dynasty Reunion: Catfights & Caviar, which airs May 2 on CBS? Just like the Dallas and Knots Landing reunions, this one gathers cast members from Aaron Spelling's nighttime soap to reminisce about their sudsy adventures in the '80s. In search of scoopage, TVGuide.com rang up Gordon Thomson, who played Dynasty devil Adam Carrington, in addition to his daytime gigs on Ryan's Hope, Santa Barbara and Sunset Beach. This cheeky, candid Canadian did not disappoint!
TVGuide.com: How's your TV mother, Joan Collins?
Gordon Thomson: I've known Joan on and off for 24 years and I've never seen her happier. She's in great form. [Collins' fifth husband] Percy Gibson is the best thing that ever happened to her. It's a great match. They're frisky and lovely together. They're mutually nuts about each other.
