Have you heard anything more about the new character on Hawaii Five-0? — Mark
ADAM:
The show is still on the lookout for what's now being described as a young version of Jack Ryan from The Hunt for Red October. (That doesn't rule out the ladies though, as we're hearing the character could very well be a woman.) Further, we'll first meet the character as part of a protection detail enlisted for McGarrett. But we'll soon learn that he or she also has a score to settle with Wo Fat.

Will Phil and Claire role play again this Valentine's Day on Modern Family? — Ron
NATALIE:
Remember when Claire lost her trench coat to the escalator? Well, it won't go much better for Bixby, Clive Bixby (Phil's seductive alter ego), when a hotel room-key handoff goes awry, and another woman gets... read more

Comic-Con: It's Not Just for Science-Fiction Shows Anymore

Castle, Glee

Comic-Con has become the ultimate experience for TV fans. And more than 125,000 of them will descend upon the San Diego Convention Center from this Thursday through Sunday for screenings, star panels, autograph opportunities and specially designed collectibles. In the last few years, though, the featured TV shows have fallen into three distinct categories: the obvious "genre" programming like Fringe, Caprica, Supernatural, Futurama and The Vampire Diaries; the shows with tangential relationships to genre entertainment (see ABC's Castle panel, with former Firefly star Nathan Fillion, for instance); and finally, entries, like Glee, that make some hard-core fans think, "Why exactly is that show here?"

Joining that elite first group is AMC's The Walking Dead, a zombie drama based on the Image Comics title by Robert Kirkman, a veteran of the San Diego experience. "It seems like every time I go to Comic-Con, I discover a new VIP area," he says. "Like, 'Wait a minute, just behind this wall they're giving back rubs and everyone gets pink lemonade?'" ... read more
