Friday Night Lights Episode Recap Spoilers!

Wednesday’s DirecTV premiere managed to ignore nearly every aspect of last season. Nobody mentioned Killer Landry, Saracen’s sexy nurse fling, Tami Taylor’s depression, that ruffian Lila Garrity brought home from juvie, Julie Taylor’s inappropriate crushes and boyfriends, Riggins’ dangerous associations with a crystal meth dealer or Jason Street’s hypothetical love child. Lila’s flirtation with born-again Christianity, which may have been one of last season’s most sensitively handled storylines (or “least exploitative”) seems also to have been jettisoned. Wow. That’s a ton of misguided plotlines for just one season.

Friday Night Lights isn’t exactly starting from scratch, but it’s definitely wiped the slate mostly clean. The result was a premiere episode that was better than most of last season, but not close to the quality of the first set of episodes… READ FULL RECAP

Private Practice Episode Recap

Katewalsh_privatepractice_240The opening montage reaquaints us with our players, shooting scenes for a talky feel-good commercial for Oceanside (slogan: “Our family takes care of your family”) interspersed with their own weaknesses and foibles – Naomi and candy, Addison and purses (Officer Kevin hasn’t called recently, it seems), Violet being avoided by Cooper, who is still all about Charlotte, and Pete and Sam both trying to talk themselves into doing something other than watching Sportscenter. The commercial looks pricey, and the doctors wonder if they’re still going to be getting their yearly bonus checks…. READ FULL RECAP

Pushing Daisies Episode Recap

Annafriel2_pushingdaisies_240

Wednesday’s premiere did a deft job of bringing folks up to speed, with a tidy recap for new viewers or those who’ve forgotten what’s going on mixed in with a little bit of new information — the origins of Chuck’s bee fascination, the “ballet of avoidance” that is Ned and Chuck’s home life — for loyalists who have been anticipating this return, then launched into a main story that had the usual complement of quirks along with a nice thematic tie-in. I’ll say it again: TV is better for this show being on the air…. READ FULL RECAP

Fun Quotes

  • I really loved the two-level discussion about workplace romance. “We ruled out office romance,” Ned replies to Olive’s theory about the case. “Oh. I’ll just cross that off my list then,” she replies. “I haven’t ruled out office romance,” Chuck says, causing Ned to melt a little bit. “Romance does give us a motive,” Emerson chimes in, then adds with a pointed stare at Olive, “Someone’s always lovin’ someone they shouldn’t be lovin’.” They may not all have been talking about the same thing at the same time, but it was also apparent they were catching everyone else’s meaning.
  • Emerson’s dressing-down of Kentucky’s husband as he’s about to cry: “It is not OK for a grown-ass man to weep in public with a bunch of happy families around eating pie. If you can’t hold it, take your ass to the men’s room and cry in private on the toilet — like a man!”
  • The entirety of Kristin Chenoweth’s shotgun-of-secrets rant, including her ineffectual throwing of napkins and the long, broken scream — and then the Sound of Music spoof after she arrives at the convent.
  • Also at the convent, Mother Superior’s clear exasperation at Olive’s inability to get with the program: “Gawd … in His infinite wisdom brought you here.” — Zap2it.com

Friday Night Lights: Spoilers!

Taylor Kitsch, FNL

From Kristin at E!Online

Finally! Tim (Kitsch) and Lyla (Minka Kelly) are totally together when the new season launches, and Taylor brings the sexy back by showing his clothes-free back…and chest…and more. Honestly, there are at least two Tim-Lyla moments in the premiere that will make you giddy and gaspy. I squealed. So is there long-term hope? “Sure, why not? Taylor tells me. “If she goes from Jesus to him, she must be into him.”

Saracen’s Spot as First-String QB Is in Danger: D.W. Moffett joins the cast as Joe McCoy, the aggressive, wily father of a freshman quarterback phenom named J.D. (Jeremy Sumpter), who is billed as the second coming of Jason Street (Scott Porter). And that does not bode well for the on-field future of our boy Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford), who has the heart—but not necessarily the throwing arm—of a champion. Gilford tells me, “Everyone thinks [J.D.’s] really good, but come on, he’s no Matt Saracen.” Damn straight.

Our Favorite Underdog Twosome Are in Trouble: Tyra (Adrianne Palicki) and Landry (Jesse Plemons) are on a break. And since we’ve all seen every episode of Friends, we know that means they are totally destined to be together forever. Still, in the midst of this breakup, Tyra’s going to be getting with a new guy named Cash (Zach Roerig), and that is rough on poor Landry, which is in turn rough on Adrienne. She told me, “Poor guy can’t catch a break! That was the first thing I asked our boss, Jason Katims, when I talked to him during the summer: What happens with Tyra and Landry? I don’t feel like it’s over, I don’t feel like we’re done, but poor Landry.” Indeed.

The Big Game This Year May Be off the Field: Dillon football kingpin Buddy Garrity (Brad Leland) has a new nemesis, and her name is Tami Taylor (Connie Britton). Yep, Tami’s been promoted to school principal, and she’s finally getting her chance to take on the devil town’s obsession with football and redirect that energy (and those school funds) to actual…education.

The Star Is Falling: Smash (Gaius Charles) has graduated, but he’s still in Dillon, not up at college. Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) is working to save Smash and get him back in the game, but when the season begins, things look pretty dim as far as Smash’s future is concerned…

Someone Proposes Marriage! There’s going to be a wedding before the season is out.

The Panthers are back on track.

New Desperate Housewives Spoilers!

General Spoilers:

Carlos’ battle with Gaby over their daughter weight issues issue has made his beard go gray, but he’ll relieve tension working as a massage therapist.  Later in the season Carlos is going to regain his sight, which will spark some majors change in the couple. This most probably has to do with the makeover and slim down transformation that Gaby will embark on within 6 to 7 episodes. Gaby will get skinny again and the story behind the change is supposedly really funny… Possibly Gaby and Carlos will also look into plastic surgery to regain their previous younger looks.

Somewhere in Episode 5-8, Julie (still played by Andrea Bowen) will be back, and wait until you meet her boyfriend. I mean, her professor. I mean, her boyfriend and her professor.  Susan likes Julie’s boyfriend, who was her English professor in graduate school, despite him being in his 40s.  Or at least she does until she learns he’s been married 3 times.  She doesn’t understand how that can happen.  Susan’s surprised to see Julie’s boyfriend has a diamond ring and plans on surprising Julie with a proposal. — TV Guide, DH Tripod

Private Practice: Spoilers, Scoop & an Interview

The fact that Addison’s workplace is the Oceanside Wellness Clinic calls to mind the 1963 Jan and Dean hit “Surf City,” where there were “two girls for every boy.” Sure enough, that’s what lucky Cooper can look forward to with Charlotte and Violet as the second season opens. But for Sam and Dell, who are fighting for Naomi, it’s the other way around. The same might be said for Pete, who had ratcheted down to “friends” with Addison when police officer Kevin Nelson (David Sutcliffe) arrived on the scene. We’ll see how that one plays out. Meanwhile, the clinic’s going broke. — Paul Droesch, TV Guide

Katewalsh Private Practice: Addison is still torn between Pete and the cute cop, played by Gilmore Girls‘ Christopher. Naomi is still confused by her feelings for both Sam and Dell… and she’s also hiding something quite serious. Cooper and Charlotte’s relationship is moving forward, while Cooper and Violet’s relationship has taken a real step back. And someone we know and love is quitting the practice. — KorbiTV at Zap2it.com

Video: ‘Private Practice’s’ Taye Diggs and Audra McDonald Talk Love Triangles

Tayediggs

Private Practice premieres tonight and two of the show’s pretty people, Taye Diggs and Audra McDonald took a little time to talk about a certain love triangle with me. Does Dell — who’s quitting the practice tonight! — actually have a shot with Naomi? I think Diggs and McDonald might have different answers to that…

New Brothers & Sisters Spoilers

TVGuide.com: You popped up on Brothers & Sisters this week, as Kevin’s boss.
Mitch Pileggi:
Yeah, and I did two more episodes after that. It was a last-minute deal. They had lost somebody and called me the night before, so…. I’m their “hired gun.” — TV Guide

As previously reported, Jason Ritter came in to meet with casting folks regarding the role of Ryan, but they are considering an other name as well. Regardless, Nora will be put in charge of whether to find Ryan, and she and Holly will end up doing the deed. Also, Rebecca’s gonna give Nora a crap load of cash, and Kitty’s new book, which trashes the family, is not going to go over well. — Kristin at E!Online

Pushing Daisies Premiere: Season Spoilers & Previews

Pushing Daisies: Chuck’s life is changing. She will move out of Ned’s house and land a job.  And though the Pie Maker is heartbroken over her absence, he’ll find a way to be near her. As for Chuck’s aunt/secret mother, Lily, she’s sending Olive — who now knows the truth about her — away indefinitely. What else? Well, Vivian’s going on a date. Emerson Cod’s writing a kids book! And Ned’s bearing his chest for a nice little shirtless scene! — KorbiTV at Zap2it.com

The weirdest crime procedural on television (and considering the amount of competition, that’s saying something) springs back to life with more murder mysteries, colorful characters and G-rated romance between Ned and Chuck, the soul mates who can’t even touch each other. The Season 2 premiere finds Chuck acting as the lead investigator when she goes undercover at a honey-based cosmetics company. And Olive lands in an even stickier situation when she learns an astonishing secret from Lily, who tries to lock her away in a nunnery in order to ensure her silence. — Jack Rodgers, TV Guide

ABC/KATE TURNING

Pushing Daisies

From Kristin at E!Online

After a very long, strike-induced hiatus, ABC is relaunching this dramedy as if it were its very first season. Meaning anyone can (and should) watch.

So what’s the inside skinny on the new season? Pushing Daisies boss Bryan Fuller was kind of enough to share some juicy details…

Did Someone Say “Sex Toy”? As season two begins, Ned and Chuck continue to struggle with their impossible love. (Refresher: If he touches her, she’ll be dead for good.) Still, Bryan Fuller insisted, “They are meant to be together, that’s the relationship to root for. And we’re implying that things are progressing with their intimacy. There’s bedtime contraptions; there’s some bedtime, classic sexy—I think episode eight is when you see the device.” Um, device? I thought he was kidding, but no, Chuck and Ned are getting down, and you’ll be amused at how.

Skivvies Alert! In tonight’s premiere, expect Ned (Lee Pace), Chuck (Anna Friel) and Emerson (Chi McBride) to continue waking the dead and catching bad guys, including a bee-based case that involves Pace strippin’ down to his Skivvies. (Ooh la la.) But the big news is that Olive quits her job at the Pie Hole and retreats to a nunnery! Diana Scarwid plays Olive’s mother superior in the first three episodes. “She’s kind of brilliant, she and Kristin—it’s comic gold,” said Bryan.

The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Kristin: Olive Snook, aka brilliant Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth, will sing again! “We have her singing in episode one, we have her singing in episode eight and we want more singing, and hopefully we’ll have more episodes after 13 so we can have more singing from her.” Also, keep an eye out for the upcoming Pushing Daisies soundtrack that includes at least two songs from season two: an operatic homage to Rodgers and Hammerstein and the Bangles’ “Eternal Flame.”

More on Chuck’s Dad: We know the shocking reveal of the identity of Chuck’s mom (Swoozie Kurtz), but what about daddy dearest? “Episode 5 through 10 are a big arc,” said Fuller. “And that involves the Stephen Root character. He’s a guy who knows Chuck’s dad and knows Ned’s dad. He knows a few secrets, too, so Swoozie’s character is not fond of him being around. We have a romantic story for him and Ellen Greene.” Also, don’t blink! If you do, you’ll miss the Pie Maker’s dad’s cameo in the first episode.

Time for pah! Or pie if you must call it that. It all goes down at 8 p.m. on ABC, and if you’re excited and you know it clap your hands down onto your keyboard and comment below…

Supernatural Spoilers & Interview: With the Grandpa!

081002pre-mitch-pileggi.jpgMitch Pileggi by Sergei Bachlakov/The CW

It’s the hour that might drop the collective jaw of Supernatural fans who think they have the CW series’ mythology all figured out. “In the Beginning,” airing this Thursday at 9 pm/ET, guest-stars Mitch Pileggi as Samuel Campbell, the Winchester boys’ maternal grandfather. The Back to the Future-esque tale finds Dean face-to-face with not only Gramps but also his would-be parents, as light is shed on the dark truth about That Night. TVGuide.com invited Pileggi to preview his visit, reflect on his least-appreciated TV role, and ponder the prospects for X-Files 3. — Matt Mitovich, TV Guide

TVGuide.com: How did the Supernatural opportunity come to you? Was it a case of someone knowing someone who knows you…?
Mitch Pileggi:
I had worked with [Supernatural creator] Eric Kripke on another series (Tarzan) some years ago. He told me he had been looking for something for me to do on the show, but he wanted to wait for the right role. This came up, they called me, and there was no hesitation.

TVGuide.com: You often seem drawn to anthology-type series. Do you feel it’s a smarter, more involved genre of television?
Pileggi:
This show is definitely smart. but honestly, what draws me to any show that I do, these days especially, is if the role is something that is going to challenge me, that is interesting to me, and is something I haven’t played before. The main thing that drew me to this was the fact that the people working on it, from the crew and production, are people I worked with on The X-Files. I had a lot of “old family” working on the show. When they sent me a couple episodes, I actually called Eric and said, “Why have I not been watching this show?!” I think it’s really good, and the guys on it are wonderful. It’s a great cast, great stories, and it looks absolutely wonderful.

TVGuide.com: You and Jensen Ackles have a very tense face-off at one point. Is that a scene you rehearsed and he knew exactly what you would be throwing at him, or was there some element of surprise to your performance?
Pileggi:
He had no idea what I was going to be doing until I did it. It was… fun, man. [Laughs] To be quite honest, I didn’t know what I was going to be doing. It kind of just “happened.” Usually when I don’t know what I’m doing is when I’m the happiest with it.

TVGuide.com: Amy Gumenick, who plays your “daughter,” Mary — this was her first big acting job? I thought she was pretty darn good, and had great screen presence.
Pileggi:
She was wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. I had a good time working with her. It turns out she went to school and was taught by a very good friend of mine, Sage Parker, who is Mary-Louise Parker’s sister.

TVGuide.com: Which of your past TV series would you say most didn’t get its due?
Pileggi:
Probably Day Break….

TVGuide.com: An awesome show.
Pileggi:
People just don’t have the attention spans to really watch something like that. It was a show you had to really pay attention to, and I think the audience was not up for that. It’s frustrating, because that show was a lot of fun and the cast, we were having a good time. And then it’s gone.

TVGuide.com: You popped up on Brothers & Sisters this week, as Kevin’s boss.
Pileggi:
Yeah, and I did two more episodes after that. It was a last-minute deal. They had lost somebody and called me the night before, so…. I’m their “hired gun.”

More Supernatural Spoilers: A New Hellraiser on the Loose!

General Spoilers

We’ll be meeting one of Dean’s demon friends from Hell and I’m hearing he’ll brutally torture Ruby. — KorbiTV at Zap2it.com

Ruby seemed to have changed into a nicer demon, which probably because Ruby now inhabits Genevieve Cortese‘s body, but there’s more to it than that. As series creator Eric Kripke tells TV Guide, “One reason she’s nicer is because she spent a few weeks in a particularly nasty corner of Hell, being punished by Lilith’s minions. That would humble just about anyone. As to whether Ruby is hiding some ulterior motive….tune in to find out.” — TV Guide

The show is currently casting another Big Bad, a middle-aged demon whose air of gentility does little to mask the stink of his cruelty. The recurring character is one of the top dogs down under, so it’s a safe bet that he’s gonna raise some hell for the Winchesters. — Ausiello Files

Episode 4.05: Monster Movie  Airdate: October 16, 2008

Dean and Sam investigate several murders at Oktoberfest. The first victim was found with bite marks on her neck, much like a vampire would leave, while the second victim has wounds that look like a werewolf attack. After a mummy rises from his crypt, Dean determines that a shape-shifter demon is terrorizing the town as iconic monsters from the old Hollywood movies.

Heros Episode Recap and Spoilers

The Second Coming

Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere are swingers! And that the teams they’re switching are that of good and evil.

If you’ve seen tonight’s episode of Heroes, blast on in here for exclusive, inside dish on what went on, what will happen next, and what it all means…

NBC/Chris Haston

HEROES One of Us, One of Them Episode 303 Zachary Quinto

WHAT WE LEARNED

Claire Has Killer Genes: We always knew HRG (Jack Coleman) and Sylar (Zachary Quinto) could be ruthless killers, but who knew our little Claire-Bear has a black heart, too? Of course, it’s only natural that a girl might flip out a little after her uncle slices open her brain and plays Operation, and her biological mother (Jessalyn Gilsig) locks her inside a burning shipping container. Claire is compelled to admit that her current overriding instinct to fight is neither altruistic nor defensive, but driven by pure vengeance. She wants to “hurt them because they hurt [her].” And judging by what we’ve seen of black-leather-clad Future Claire (Sandra Dee postmakeover), she succeeds.

Sylar and HRG Make An Awesome Odd Couple: Did anyone else laugh uproariously when Sylar swaggered into the crime scene wearing a suit, an attitude and a heavy accent? I’m not great at dialects, so I wasn’t sure if Zachary was doing something Bostonian or closer to his native Pittsburgh, but either way, it was so unexpected, it rocked. Sylar does the voodoo he do so well on two of the bank robbers, and HRG takes down another baddie with good old-fashioned gunplay. Fabulous. Angela Petrelli, you might be evil as all get out but you are a good matchmaker.

Hiro and Daphne Are Well-Matched Adversaries: I loved Hiro (Masi Oka) calling Daphne (Brea Grant) “Nemesis” (much to her annoyance), and I really loved Hiro’s annoyance in return when Daphne dubbed him “Pikachu.”

NBC/Chris Haston

HEROES One of Us One of Them Episode 303 Masi Oka, Brea Grant, James Kyson Lee

WHAT LIES AHEAD:

  • Hiro and Ando (James Kyson Lee) look up an old frenemy. Actually, they dig him up, right out of his 400-year-old grave. Sarkie-poo, oh, how I have missed you!
  • Dr. Zimmerman has answers to Tracy Strauss’ questions about her mysterious origins, and we’ll learn of a fifth version of the woman who looks just like Ali Larter. (Wait a minute, were their parents named John and Kate?!) So just to make the math clear, here: We’ve met Niki Saunders, her two alternate personalities Jessica and Gina, and now Tracy Strauss, but we’ll learn there is another person running around with the same pretty face. Seriously, Haley Mills never had it so bad.
  • In the future Sylar is not only living with his son Noah in the Bennet house, but he has Mr. Muggles. Will the violations never end? Actually, we’ll see that Sylar has become a new man. As Zachary Quinto told me when I visited the set during the production of episode four, “I believe that there may be some waffle-making in this episode. This is an alternative sort of reality—you catch glimpses of times that may or may not actually come to fruition, but that are possibilities.” Let me say it now: Not really gonna happen.

New Ugly Betty Spoilers! Daniel reclaims the Mode throne

Daniel will officially reclaim his perch atop Mode’s masthead by episode 3. (Editor in Chief)

Marc and Cliff are still together. They have one of those special TV relationships that take place primarily off screen. But as David Blue (Cliff) told Ausiello at Ugly Betty‘s New York premiere a few weeks back, the MIA couple will get some long overdue face time very soon.

Mode is hosting a company-wide, off-site retreat in November that has “Emmy bait” written all over it. — Ausiello Files

Gossip Girl Guys: You know you love them! Interview

‘Gossip Girl’ stars Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley and Ed Westwick sat down with Details to dish on their lives, characters and hopes for the future:

Get More XOXO From Details

Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald

What Others Perceive as His Faults: “Model turned actor, dime a dozen, eye candy, doesn’t know what he’s doing … and Perez Hilton says I have ‘gayface.’ So on top of everything else, I have to overcome gayface.”
On the Fans: “Once when we were on location on the Upper East Side, these girls came up, you know, with the Blair headbands and their skirts hiked up higher than they should be, and I said to them, ‘So, are you looking at colleges?’ and they said, ‘No, we’re in seventh grade.’ I was like, ‘What?! You shouldn’t even be watching our show!'”
His Relationship With Roommate and Co-Star Ed Westwick: “What does “bromance” even mean?”
The Future of His Character: “I’m hoping for a fall from grace for Nate. Five years from now, I better have murdered someone!

Penn Badgley, who plays Dan Humphrey

On Twenty-Somethings Playing High School Kids: “We all look way too old. But if we looked the right ages, some of the scandalous s— we do on the show would be too much.”
His Relationship With Girlfriend and Co-Star Blake Lively: “You have to draw the line somewhere. I’m fine talking about my family and personal history, because it humanizes you. But I have to save some s— for me.”
On Himself: ” I don’t take anything seriously. And … just because I’m not smiling doesn’t mean I’m not happy. Chace [Crawford] is one of the most positive guys I’ve ever met, and you can see that in the way he walks around.I’m also like that — but you can’t see it.”
On His Career: “I hope in five years I no longer look at acting as a job but as a creative passion. That’s how I want to be different.”

Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck Bass

His Outgoing Nature: “Put me in a bar and I’ll make friends straightaway. And I’m at my most impressionable age. I need to meet new people, and soak up everything like a sponge.”
Describing Chuck Bass: “Chuck’s just this vain kind of metrosexual Manhattan eccentric living in a flash world. He’s young, and still figuring out the way he wants the world to see him.”
The Clothes: “Those costumes are my right-hand man.”
Chuck’s Bad Side: “It’s not like Chuck is stickin’ a knife to a granny’s throat. He’s just mischievous. In the second season, you will see him do more of the good-guy thing.”

More Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers and Scoop!

Callie and Erica’s secret affair won’t be a secret much longer. Next week, word of their sapphic romance makes its way to two of their colleagues. Also in the episode: One of last season’s most significant relationships comes to an end.

This is more Der than Mer, but the Oct. 16 episode will feature Patrick Dempsey completely naked save for one strategically placed pillow. That’s pretty good, yes? — Ausiello Files

Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers: “Here Comes the Flood”
