“Second Chance” Preview: Fun, Unique and Worthy of a First Chance

[SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers from the new episode]

Second Chance premieres on FOX on Wednesday nights (9/8C) and is intriguing enough to be worth your time. Pilots are always a difficult thing to pull off since they have only 45 minutes to introduce characters, provide adequate back-story, and establish the driving force of the series. It is no surprise that things may feel a bit rushed. They also need to be fascinating enough so that the viewer would be interested in tuning in to the series in the weeks to follow. Second Chance delivers a solid pilot covering all the requirements and sets up interesting themes to move the series forward. No doubt there are going to be some high expectations as the series evolves, considering the producers have some outstanding television credits as part of their resumes such as Life, Crisis, 24, Homeland, Tyrant, Law & Order: SVU, and Elementary.

Also, in case you missed it, be sure to check out the Eclipse interview  with Executive Producer Rand Ravich and stars Rob Kazinsky for some great character insights.

When Stephen Root appears on this week’s episode of Fringe [Fox, Fridays, 9/8C], it will mark the first time he’s appeared onscreen in film or TV with his real life wife, Romy Rosemont.

He spoke to a group of bloggers earlier this week and talked about that experience, as well as his love for science fiction – and why so many projects he’s worked on have such fierce fans.

Summer’s Done; Fall’s Begun! The Best TV of Summer 2010; A Look at the First of Fall!

What an interesting and entertaining summer it’s been for television. New Shows like Covert Affairs and Pretty Little Liars seemed to come out of nowhere to become hits, while reliable standbys like The Closer, Breaking Bad and Mad Men maintained their positions and won big at the Emmys. And for off the charts nasty fun, there was, once again, True Blood.

With the fall season getting underway [The CW and FX have already introduced new shows and the big guys are following over the next couple weeks], it’s definitely time to take a look at the best of this past summer and offer a couple of comments on the few new shows that we’ve seen debut over the last week.

Note that I have not included Mad Men in my summer list because I simply did not have time to include it in my schedule. A separate overview for MM will appear once the new fall season premieres have appeared.

COMIC-CON: True Blood Gets 3rd Season, makes Presence Known

trueblood3

The folks at TV.com have a really cool little write up about the True-Blood Comic-con panel.  I’m enjoying True Blood, but frankly I’m getting sick of Vampires. My favorite quote from the article –

“During the packed panel, a fan asks if there will ever be a half-human-half-vampire baby (the Twilight series features one), and creator Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, American Beauty) doesn’t even understand the question. A rain of boos from the audience descend on the fan who asked the question, and when Ball finally realizes what she asked, he gives a playful look of disgust and emphatically says, "What!? Noooooooooo!"”

Here’s a link to the article.  And here’s a clip from the Panel, the full panel is available in about 7 parts on YouTube, here.
