Ghost WhispererThe Ghost Whisperer writers are trying their best to give Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Jim (David Conrad) a new start in their relationship.  Many of the audiences aren’t so thrilled with how things are going, and the showrunners have given enough excuses and explanations regarding the series.  It appears as though this Q&A cycle will just keep going until the plot has been resolved.  Again, the show’s executive producers offer their insights on what’s been happening so far.

TV Guide recently gathered queries from dozens of fans, who are thirsty for TV gossip.  One viewer named Casey asked a question targeting the people surrounding Melinda and Sam/Jim on Ghost Whisperer, and she does indeed make a good point.

“On Ghost Whisperer, how is it that the people of Grandview aren’t a bit curious about Madly-in-Love-with-Jim Melinda becoming Wildly-in-Love-with-Sam Melinda just weeks after Jim’s funeral? Those close to her get it, OK, but surely the neighbors are talking. Are we going to get an episode addressing the human tendency to gossip?” the fan wondered.

The show’s own executive producers, P.K. Simonds, Ian Sander and Kim Moses, replied through an e-mail addressed to TV Guide.  “It’s a good question,” the message said, “but we’ve tried to be clear that at least to the outside world, Melinda is not ‘wildly in love’ with Sam (Jim).  At least not yet.”

They continued, “Though there is plenty of aching and longing, the two of them are scrupulously respectful of each other’s boundaries — he because she is grieving her husband, and she because he is grappling with memory loss.  We’re planning to address what friends and neighbors think, in a big way, as we move forward in Season 4.”

Indeed, there are only seven episodes left to wrap up the season.  If they don’t manage to secure the storylines then, it’s possible that the fans will lose interest.  In turn, Ghost Whisperer could just suffer an incredible slump in ratings.

But while we can, it’s best to enjoy tonight’s episode of the well-received series.  Titled “Pieces of You,” Melinda gets tangled up in a mystery involving a wishing well.  Other than troubling herself with Sam/Jim, she has to confront the problem of a little girl who has disappeared decades ago.  For years, the ghost has been keeping a secret, which could might just be haunting Sam/Jim.

I’m a big Will-Megan fan. What should we call them? Mill? Wegan? What’s coming up for them?
I think Mill or Wegan works. But if there’s a better suggestion, comment it… What’s coming up? Well, let’s see, I’m hearing rumors of sister Lily’s return, and word is, she and Will will be locking lips. Yeah. Megan won’t take it so well.

Brianhallisay I am so happy that Charlie isn’t all up in Megan’s grill anymore. They’re way better as friends. Any Will scoop?
We’ll be meeting Will’s very wealthy parents in a couple weeks and they seem super cool and completely supportive of Megan’s relationship with their son.

Petewentz_ashleesimpson New Papa Pete Wentz isn’t letting his brand new baby boy Bronx slow him down. Having previously appeared as himself on One Tree Hill and Californication, sources tell me exclusively that Wentz will add another TV credit to his resume when he guests on an upcoming episode of The CW’s Privileged.

Word is, his scene in the show’s 14th hour — it’ll likely air as the first ep of 2009 — will be with the series’ teenage stars, Ashley Newbrough and Lucy Hale. Insiders say the cast and crew couldn’t be more excited to have Mr. Wentz on board.

Grey’s Anatomy Episode Recap

Sandraoh_greysanatomy_s3_240 It’s Big Solo Surgery Week on Grey’s Anatomy, and as usual our merry band of residents are all angling to fly solo for the first time. But even though Cristina was unanimously chosen by the attendings, last week’s inanely stupid debacle with the self-operating/mutilating interns has disqualified her from the running. So the Chief, eager to Teach A Lesson, makes Cristina choose the winner from among her peers. And because said interns are also banned from the OR, the winner will pick a fellow resident to scrub in as well.

Separately, Cristina gets another assignment. Doctor Dixon (Mary McDonnell) is back, and the chief wants Cristina to spend the day with her as part of the ongoing effort to woo the brilliant cardiac surgeon with Asperger Syndrome to Seattle Grace.

Chylerleigh_greysanatomy_s3_240 Trying to rise above her ostracized-intern status, Lexie goes to Mark Sloan to get him to teach her something, which this week involves an operation he’s doing to rebuild a woman’s larynx and restore her ability to speak. Bailey, trying to get the feeling again for surgery and the excitement of practicing medicine (we learn, by the way, that she won the first solo surgery during her year), has read up on the procedure and volunteers to work with Sloan. The woman in question, Mrs. Patterson, is practically glued to her laptop and communicates with her husband via a series of Post-It notes. And the poor guy’s losing patience with it.

Two sisters, ages 15 and 16, end up in the ER because the 16-year-old was driving and texting and crashed her father’s car. Emma, the younger sister, has a broken leg, but the real problem — in between them screaming at each other at a shrill decibel achievable only by teenage girls — is that Holly, the older sister, ends up with a skull fracture. And just as Karev is rushing her off to CT to assess the damage, Emma yells “I hope you die!” Never a good omen. Which is borne out when the girl crashes on the CT table and starts leaking gray matter and blood from her nose and ears.

Cristina finds Dr. Dixon looking at the blank space on the surgery board — she wants to do a surgery, but Cristina finds it tough — or maybe too tiring — to try to explain the solo surgery contest. Dixon, however, catches on and notes Cristina’s abject misery over the situation, and tries to counsel her to just keep the decision factual and conforming to a series of criteria. Dixon and Cristina scrub in on Holly’s surgery, which goes south when she suffers a carotid dissection and comes out of surgery brain dead. It’s a heartbreaking situation that clearly affects everyone. Derek later laments to Meredith that the thing they never tell you when you become a doctor is that you’ll lose more patients than you can save. The death is wearing on him….

Ugly Betty Episode Reca: “Bad Amanda”

Beckinewton_uglybetty_240Amanda isn’t the worst roommate ever, but she’s no prize. Besides treating Betty like a servant, wearing her clothes, and blaming the missing food on the mythical Bad Ronald, she doesn’t even bother paying rent. This is New York: Rent is supreme.

But no worries. Mode has just launched ModeNY.com and has opened it up to the staff. Betty pitches and — with Amanda’s social savvy — lands a story idea: How to have fun in NY on zero dollars. And despite Betty’s reluctance, their partnership is pretty darn good.

Amanda has all the ideas and know-how: makeup samples from pricey stores, tucking in the tag of a garment to return later (I enabled someone to do that once), drinking free booze at gallery exhibits and allowing generous men to buy you dinner. All goes well when Claudio and Luca ply the girls with expensive champagne … until the bill comes and the men were nowhere to be found. Hmm, they’re good.

No dine and dash for our upstanding Betty though. In a flash, she cons the manager into comping the meal since the restaurant will get a huge write-up on ModeNY.com . I’m pretty impressed with the plucky girl. It’s all great … until it turns out that the two dudes also stole Amanda’s wallet (they’re really good) AND Betty’s rent money that Amanda had planned on delivering for her. Ouch.

Betty’s pissed. I’d be pissed. Papi reasons with her and plies her with food, but it’s not until Daniel reads her story and says this should be a regular feature that she’s feeling magnanimous again. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that Amanda is feeling properly contrite and has taken a second job where she has to wear at least 6 pieces of flair in order to pay her share of rent. And as usual, we’re rewarded with a heart-warming scene — Betty has made dinner for the hard-working Mandy….Continue reading »

Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers: Is Someone Getting Fired?

Grey’s Anatomy: Is Someone Getting Fired?
Buddy TV, Wednesday, December 03, 2008

A word of advice to the cast members of Grey’s Anatomy: you have no job security. You may say something on the set to another actor that causes a media firestorm and suddenly, you’re disappearing without explanation (I’m talking to you, Isaiah Washington). You may have been brought on as a lesbian character that didn’t sit well with the uptight ABC execs and disappear after work, never to be heard from again (that’s you, Brooke Smith). Apparently, you may also find yourself written out of scenes and practically entire episodes should you even question the writing staff. E!’s Kristen Dos Campos has the scoop, but has to refer to it as a blind item. However, we all know who she’s referring to.

A source close to the show told Kristen this week, “The reason [the actor] has not been on is because [he or she] has been a pain in the ass lately, trying to change scenes and dialogue, being hard to work with and putting up an attitude. The higher-ups were getting tired of it, so they tweaked [him or her] out of some episodes. That’s why you haven’t really seen [him or her] lately.” A second source added, “[He or she] is not really getting along too well with producers right now.” There’s only one actor on the show who has been noticeably missing from scenes and storylines and that person is T.R. Knight. If this is true, that he has been slightly difficult, then perhaps he should be talked to, but not punished. For Pete’s sake, Katherine Heigl released a statement to the press last year saying she’d turn down an Emmy nomination because the writing of her character was so bad. Patrick Dempsey publicly slammed Grey’s last month for firing Brooke Smith and cutting gay storylines but I still see him and his hair every time I turn around. As if cutting scenes and storylines isn’t bad enough, Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that an original cast member is about to be fired. Somehow, he caught wind of it before the actor (or actress) and the show is siting budget cuts and creative redirection as the reason. Ausiello has been sworn to secrecy but with all this talk of the lack of George O’Malley on our Grey’s episodes in recent times, I think we all have the right to be a little worried.
