It's a Friday morning in L.A., and Shane West is casually dangling from an indoor rock wall nearly 20 feet up in the air. (Picture a spider monkey with unusually good hair and cheekbones.) Apparently, the 33-year-old star of The CW's Nikita hasn't been faking his way through all the tricky stunt work required to play rogue Division agent Michael (last name unknown) on the action-packed cult fave, now in Season 2. In between cracks about the unconventional setting — we agree he looks like he's auditioning for a new basic-cable sitcom called Hang in There — West describes his climb up the showbiz ladder...

ABC Family's Huge takes place at a weight-loss camp, but executive producer Winnie Holzman says, "You don't need to be fat or have a weight issue to relate to it." The series (Mondays at 9/8c) follows a diverse group of teens. Willamina (Nikki Blonsky) is an outsider who sets out to gain weight to anger her parents, while Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff) is the camp's "golden girl" — with a lot less confidence than it appears. Although different from Holzman's previous shows My So-Called Life and Once and Again, Huge similarly focuses on the scariness of change as the characters struggle and try to figure out who they are.

Question: HBO is premiering its new show Tell Me You Love Me this Sunday, and to my astonishment, you haven't yet written a single word about it. You're my go-to TV critic, and I'm especially eager to hear your opinion on this one. Some critics love it, calling it the HBO version of a Herskovitz-Zwick program (a huge endorsement in my book), while others think it's dull and pretentious. What do you say?
Answer: Thanks for asking. One of the reasons no official review has yet appeared in the magazine or elsewhere is because there was no room for my regular column in the jam-packed Fall Preview issue (on stands now; I recommend you all go out and get one). The magazine review goes out next week, but this gives me an opportunity to weigh in a few days early, and I'm happy to, because I think Tell Me You Love Me signals HBO getting back on track after John from Cincinnati (which I did feel was dull and pretentious) with a powerful, demanding and at times excruciatingly painful drama about
Although the February sweeps officially have been over for several days, Sunday night sure felt like a sweeps extravaganza, with game-changing episodes of two major series. Both pivotal hours, of Sci Fis Battlestar Galactica and ABCs Brothers & Sisters, dealt with the fate of daughters whose respective departure and arrival is setting off shock waves for their unconventional families (the Galactica crew and the Walker clan).The episode that undoubtedly will cause the largest stir in TV fandom was Galacticas riveting and ultimately devastating journey into the metaphysical, as Starbuck (a brooding, tormented Katee Sackhoff) finally faced and embraced her destiny. Which meant, in a series of visions and hallucinations guided by the specter of the not-quite-Leobon as if he were the Ghost of Psychodramas Past, that Kara had to confront the soul-crushing memories of her abusive mother, who instilled in the self-destructive Starbuck a belief that suffering was good f...
