Premiere: Life on Mars

Jasonomara2_lifeonmars_240 Once upon a time, there was this television show about a cop from our time who got hit by a car and woke up 35 years earlier. It was called Life on Mars, and it was British. It kind of rocked, so the studio suits in the US imported it….READ FULL RECAP

Smallville Episode Recap: “Instinct”

Dr. Gruel, having recently come out of his spider hole, is analyzing a crystal for Tess. He starts a frequency modulator that activates the crystal, shooting a major beam of light out of Castle Luthor. The pretty blue light disappears almost as quickly as is appears. Tess is intrigued, not realizing what she’s unleashed onto the streets of Metropolis. A random stereotypical stockbroker comes across the newly arrived Maxima, her outfit leaving very little to the imagination. She introduces herself to the guy, mistaking him for the one who activated the crystal. They share quite the passionate kiss, which initially overpowers him. Never underestimate the male libido, as he attempts to make out with her once again… that is until he collapses from the sheer sexiness of the kiss. Or bad acting, take your pick….READ FULL RECAP

Ugly Betty Episode Recap

So when we last saw Christina, she was out cold after a mysterious person pushed her down a flight of stairs. Fast forward to the next day, and Daniel asks Betty to dry clean a really dusty jacket and then says if anyone asks where he was last night, give the excuse that he was wrapping stuff up at Player magazine. Uh, why do you need an excuse in the first place, Danny boy? Ooh, mysterioso. Unfortunately, not sharing the truth with Betty bites him in the butt because our girl cannot lie. So when the 5-0 comes by Mode — allowing Amanda to get all sex kitten-y and hit on Mr. Kelly Ripa — Betty breaks under interrogation and blurts out she doesn’t know where Daniel was the previous evening. D’oh….READ FULL RECAP

From Highlights:

– Ever since the show moved to New York to shoot, I’ve noticed a distinct difference in characters’ styles. Betty’s has improved. Claire looks totally hot. Marc is more stylish and casual. I’m not terribly crazy about Wilhelmina’s bright palette tonight though.
Tonyplana_uglybetty_240 – Papi has had a racy few days! First he catches the Coach nude (very nice muscle tone in front and behind), then he watches the Daniel-boinking surveillance tape with Betty. Hmm, I’d feel better if the sexiness didn’t always involve his daughters somehow. Really, Ignacio needs some love!
– Is this the first episode where the Suarezes finally lapse into Spanish when they’re upset? It’s about time they added that touch of realism.
– Wil calls Christina a “Scottish rent-a-womb”
– Justin: “That Mariska Hargitay wears some amazing pantsuits.”
– Jeez, can Wil actually have a heart? She’s actually considerate of Christina after learning that Stuart is dying since the treatment didn’t work.
– The Wilamannequin also scares me a little. Okay, a lot.
– Claire’s prison advice: “Do your own time, and don’t trust the popo.”
– Neighbor Jesse borrowed Betty’s umbrella and left a note. Okay, I know we’re giving the girl time to focus on her career here, but I’d like a little flirtation.

Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles

As sad as it is to see so many great shows struggling for viewers, it’s not doom and gloom everywhere on the tube.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supernatural has experienced more ratings growth among the 18-49 demographic this season than any other show on television.  It’s up 42 percent from its season 3 numbers, beating out second place gainer Criminal Minds by an impressive eight percent….”Supernatural” Season 4 Experiences a Ratings Surge

Supernatural Episode Recap: “Metamorphosis”

Jared Padalecki, Jensen AcklesOn tonight’s episode of Supernatural, the brothers team up to stop a man from transforming into a flesh-eating monster.

Supernatural kicks off with Sam and Ruby 2.0 questioning a possessed man about Lilith’s location.  The guy ribs Sam about his association with the “demon bitch,” so Sammy promptly uses his mental mojo to suck the demon smoke right out of him, turning him back to normal.  Not only is Sam starting to scare me a bit, but he’s also scaring Dean, who sees the entire ordeal from outside.  Dean comes into the warehouse and immediately picks a fight with Ruby after figuring out who she is.  Unfortunately, Dean is no match for the demon, so she quickly overpowers him and pins him against a wall.  While Ruby takes the man to the hospital to get checked out, Dean storms off without saying a word….READ FULL RECAP

Supernatural Spoilers: The Mythology Dean vs. Sam

Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles
From BuddyTV:
If I took a trip to see sassy psychic Missouri Moseley and asked her what’s coming up in Supernatural‘s future, I think I know what she’d tell me: the battle of Winchester vs. Winchester.  Dean has known he might have to face off with his brother since the beginning of season 2, when a dying John warned him that Sam might turn to the dark side one day.  The addition of Castiel to the mythology has only made the brotherly battle more inevitable.  Sam is cranking up his dark mojo with help from a demon, Dean is working for an angel, and the long-dead Yellow-Eyed Demon has a plan for Sam that has yet to be revealed.  None of this is going to end well….READ FULL ARTICLE: Supernatural: Winchester vs. Winchester

The long-simmering Mer-Der-Izzie-Alex quadrangle comes to a head this week. Okay, maybe “long-simmering” is a bit much.

She is devastated to hear the news especially since she’s given up pretty much everything in the past three years to take care of him. Stan’s office temp, 20-year-old Lindsay Herman, drops by the hospital saying she is there to give bone marrow. Doctors and interns also take care of 50-year-old Bruce Walling, a wealthy businessman, who is accompanied by his 23-year-old son PJ. Father and son have a strained relationship. Source:

90210′ Casting Spoilers: Jason Priestley & Shannen Doherty are Back…

Beverlyhills90210_lJason Priestley has agreed to do an episode of The CW’s 90210 later this season, but you won’t see him — he’ll be behind the camera, working as a director. Sources confirm to Michael Ausiello exclusively that Priestley will helm this season’s 18th episode, which is slated to air this spring.

Meanwhile, a 90210 insider also reveals that Priestley’s TV sis, Shannen Doherty, is nearing a deal to return for two more episodes later this season. Executive producer Gabe Sachs would only confirm that she’s “in talks,” but Ausiello’s 90210 spy insists “she’s coming back. The deal isn’t officially done, but it’s happening.”

Might one of Doherty’s two episodes be the Priestley-directed installment? Sachs says that’s TBD. “I think it would be a kick for Jason to work with any of his [former 90210 costars], and it would also add something special to that episode,” he says. “But we don’t know whether that will happen yet.”

A more likely scenario has Priestley bossing around his other leading lady, Jennie Garth, who’s back for at least six episodes.

There’s also some efforts to lure Luke Perry and Tori Spelling back to the fold.

Greek Spoilers & Scoop: Oct. 28 Season Finale!

How long will Max be around on Greek? I love him and Casey together: I hope he’s around long enough to distract her from this dude: The show is now seeing exceptionally hot young actors to play the recurring role of the exceptionally hot new hasher at ZBZ. And though the college-age Brad Pitt look-alike tries to hold on to his job by resisting the comely co-eds, his attraction to one of our heroines soon gives way to action. — Ausiello Files

A major defection in the Oct. 28 season finale will shake up Greek life like never before. It’s a game changer reminiscent of Battlestar Galactica‘s big Tigh-Galen-Tyrol-Tory-are-Cylons reveal. Declares series creator Sean Smith: “It’s hands down our biggest episode to date.” — Ausiello Files

Sam checks out something on his cell phone in the next picture.  It’s not an overly exciting shot, but it does prove that the episode will have plenty of Sam!

The third photo shows what looks to be a tense confrontation between Sam and Dean.  Judging from the picture and the promo for the episode, I’m guessing Dean is going to confront his brother about his secret shenanigans with Ruby.
