Randy Jackson does Pants on the Ground and talks Idol

To this very day I still get confused as to whether or not Jackson is related to the Jacksons. He’s not, but I recently watched all of the Jackson’s reality show on A & E. Anyway Randy being the shill he is did a cover of Pants on the Ground with the Roots on Late Night last night. I’m not going to watch Idol until they get down to the top 14 and actually start, you know, singing.

Michelle Trachtenberg Returns to Gossip Girl later this season

I hate Georgina and was glad to see her go, but during a Q and A on the set of Mercy last week Mercy/Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg confirmed that she will be returning to the CW Network hit, Gossip Girl in the coming weeks. She’s one busy girl and must have one impressive agent to be able to convince both networks to let her keep doing both shows. She was a lot of fun during the Mercy Q and A, very possessive over her male co-stars.

SyFy’s Caprica is a kind of Creepy and Depressing, So says Michelle, So say we All!

I always say how much I despise Prequels, but I have to admit I always find myself getting sucked into them, because there’s a part of me that always wants to know how X got to Y. Also the Pollyanna side of me always watches these things thinking Anakin really won’t go bad, Wolverine really won’t loose his memory, Lex Luthor is really going to turn out to be a good guy and on Caprica the Cylons really won’t kill everyone in sight. You can’t help but feel a sense of creepiness and foreboding to everything that’s going on with this show.

TELEVISION: American ‘Torchwood’ Coming?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is developing a stateside version of the U.K. hit series Torchwood.

Unlike Fox’s unsuccessful attempt to create an American version of Doctor Who, the network plans to involve the Original, U.K. production’s team – with original series creator Russell Davies writing the script.

Michelle’s 24 Recap – Eps 3 and 4

    Episode 3 – Airdate 01.18.2010

    The following takes place between 6pm and 7pm

    The highlight for tonight’s episode is the reappearance of Renee Walker, AKA “Freckles” Bauer (Annie Wersching) . I didn’t think I’d like Freddie Prinze Jr. as the fresh-faced head of field ops Cole Ortiz – dumb name. CTU really has some new fancy digs this year, that garage is quite nifty. Oh hell no, some homies messing with Bauer on a basketball court? They don’t know what he’s got in his sack and what he can do to them. Chloe and Jack track Davros (Where’s “The Doctor?”) down to the expendable couple’s house where of course they are dead. Can I get a “Dammit” from you Jack? So far the opening few minutes of this episode is slow as heck. Jack gets the boots put to him because the cops think he’s a cop killer. So of course the cops go to town on him and want to teach him a lesson. Meanwhile at CTU they are still trying to decrypt the file.

    The Jack Sack is Back, 24 Season 8 Predictions

    The Jack Sack is back baby and after the excellent two hour premiere I’m fully on board with Season 8 of 24. I loved it when Jack muttered, “I hate this place.” Who doesn’t hate their job? I’m the type of viewer who generally enjoys 24 in six hour marathon sessions as opposed to watching it on a week-to-week basis. I think the story flows better this way, so I will be doing re-caps this season but probably in two – three episode blocks. My recap of the first four hours will come later this week, in the meantime I have a few predictions for this season – since we all know there is definitely a formula.

    67th Golden Globes: Ricky Gervais’ Prickly Honesty Sets Snarky Tone For The Most Enjoyable Of Awards Shows!

    Ricky Gervais hosted the 67th Golden Globes Awards with the same prickly disregard for fakery he displayed when he appeared on The Tonight Show this past week [where he suggested that he plug all his projects up front in case NBC kicked Conan out a wee bit early].

    ricky-gervais-beer

    When he was not-so-gently ribbing stars like Mel Gibson [“I like a drink as much as the next man – except when the next man is Mel Gibson”] and Meryl Streep whose double nominations got one of the best bits of the night [something about being “greedily nominated” for It’s Complicated and Julie & Julia], he was flogging the DVD releases for the complete series of the British original version of The Office and his latest film, The Invention of Lying – or his upcoming animated series, The Ricky Gervais Show [on HBO].

    Television: The CW Network Debuts New Family Drama Series, Life Unexpected

    Project0

    For the past month, the CW Network has been heavily hyping their new drama series, Life Unexpected, which premieres on Monday January 18th at 8PM EST right before an all new episode of season 7 of One Tree Hill.

    Life Unexpected, which is written and produced by Liz Tigelaar (“Brothers and Sisters,” “What About Brian”), Janet Leahy (“Boston Legal,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Gary Fleder (“October Road”), is the story of 15-year-old Lux (Britt Robertson, “Swingtown”), who, after spending her life bouncing from one foster family to another, has decided it’s time to become an emancipated minor. Her journey through the legal maze leads Lux to her biological parents, Nate “Baze” Bazile (Kristoffer Polaha, “Mad Men”) and Cate Cassidy (Shiri Appleby, – Roswell, E.R.). When a judge unexpectedly grants temporary joint custody to Baze and Cate, they agree to make a belated attempt to give Lux the family she deserves.

    Archer, FX Network’s Latest Show is bit too Clever by Half, Michelle’s Review

    Did you ever watch James Bond and think, wow, that’s one cool dude? Would you still think that if you found out that Bond’s ex-girlfriend is dating a dreeby Accountant, you have to put up with office politics like every other person and that your mother is actually M and runs the place? These are the things that super spy Archer has to put up with in FX Networks new animated comedy series “Archer.” The animation style of Archer looks a bit like Flash mixed with some cell shading it looks a bit amateurish but serviceable, it’s not going to make you go wow or want to buy any action figures.  Where Archer excels is it’s snappy, snarky, rapid-fire dialogue.
