6 Things We Wish Had Happened On TV

August 18th, 2014 12:03pm EDT
6 Things We Wish Had Happened On TV
As the Rolling Stones once sang, you can't always get what you want. And so it is for TV as well. For a variety of reasons - network decisions, production demands, behind the scenes developments - sometimes what happens or doesn't happen isn't what we would've wanted. Even though that might have been a good thing, even if we completely understand why, we can't help but wonder 'what if.'

This TV season has had quite a few of those moments, whether it's plot twists that broke our hearts, cancellations we wish we could reverse, or just things we would have enjoyed seeing even if they had no r...

'24' Co-Stars Defend Kiefer Sutherland Following Freddie Prinze, Jr. Attack

'24' Co-Stars Defend Kiefer Sutherland Following Freddie Prinze,
Even though Freddie Prinze, Jr., didn't have a pleasant experience working with Kiefer Sutherland on "24," other co-stars apparently did.

Earlier this week, Prinze, Jr., revealed to ABC News that he almost quit acting after working with Sutherland on the hit FOX series. He slammed the lead actor's professionalism and claimed he was forced to remove his shoes in scenes with Sutherland so he didn't tower over him.

On Monday, Sara Gilbert and Aisha Tyler defended Sutherland on their daytime talk show "The View," and fellow "24" star Louis Lombardi has also come forward to lend his support.

Kiefer Sutherland's rep has addressed comments that actor Freddie Prinze, Jr. made about the "24" star over the weekend that weren't too kind.

After revealing that Sutherland was very difficult and "unprofessional" to work with during an interview with ABC News Radio at Comic Con while promoting his new show "Star Wars Rebels."

Prinze Jr. said that his experience working with Sutherland "was terrible" and that he "hated every moment of it" and "wanted to quit the business after that."

"Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world," he said. "That's not me talking trash; I'd say i...

Freddie Prinze Jr. was at Comic-Con to talk about his role in the upcoming Star Wars: Rebels animated series, but he couldn't help himself from talking about what made him almost quit acting.

While talking with ABC about the show and his break from acting, he said, "I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. Kiefer [Sutherland] was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face, I think everyone that's worked with him has said that. And I just wanted to quit the business after that... so I just sort of stopped.

'24: Live Another Day' Finale Recap And Review: '10:00 PM - 11:0
Here we are: the 24: Live Another Day finale. The conclusion to the event series we waited months for and have bitten our nails over for weeks. Thirteen hours of story time condensed into forty-five minutes of air time. The final end to the 24 saga, or is it? This show goes out the way it came in: a mixed bag of great things and not-so-great ones, not quite reaching its former glory but still damned entertaining.

Picking up exactly where we left off, Audrey realizes that her friend isn't dead, just bleeding to death. When she tries to move to help her, the sniper does the obvious thing an...

When we left 24: Live Another Day, Jack Bauer's worst enemy was trying to start the next international war. In this next-to-last episode, we discover that he's even ticked off at his own country now, that you can't keep a good actor off camera, and that Audrey and Mark's marriage is probably doomed. Or at least, Mark is doomed. And no one much cares.

Hey, this week we actually get to see Philip Winchester and not just hear him. Someone please give this man a gun and let him go save some lives. He's definitely needed, because there's a Chinese carrier sinking, and Jack and Kate are still en...

'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '8:00 PM - 9:00 PM' - W
With only three episodes to go - and one massive time jump ahead in the series finale - it's time (no pun intended) to start wrapping things up on 24: Live Another Day. The writers accomplish this by reaching back into their toy box by bringing back another old adversary, and setting up a new storyline that might be hard to definitively close by season's end.

Jack reveals to a shocked Kate that her boss is one of the bad guys, and that he's currently on the run with the control device that can do a lot more than just commandeer drones. Cut to Navarro, who's officially setting up a meeting ...

First of all: isn't it wild that we're already halfway through 24: Live Another Day? After the months we spent waiting excitedly for Jack to come back, how time flies. But some things stay the same, including something that you're either going to love or hate.

We open in the immediate aftermath of last week's major explosion, finding out pretty quickly that Navarro and Erik are still alive, but that a bunch of other CIA agents are not so lucky. The ambush doesn't go over well with anybody on the political side of things, and Prime Minister Davies gets even more upset when his aide Caroline...

When Jack Bauer made his triumphant return last week, 24: Live Another Day wasn't without its flaws, but it was still pretty damn enjoyable. The season's third episode tones down the action that propelled the first two hours, and treats us largely to backstory for characters who are still not quite convincing, except for the show's trademark habit of making the final few minutes count for something.

Jack and Chloe find the corpse of Derek Yates, easily deducing that it was Yates' lady friend Simone that did him in, and they set off in pursuit of her. At the same time, CIA would-be hotshot ...

When 24 departed our screens four years ago, it was bittersweet. One of TV's best dramas was ending - but it concluded on its weakest season. The idea of bringing it back, then, was exciting for both the show and for the institution of television alike. Could the writers restore our faith after that subpar final adventure? And would the return give hope to other previously completed shows that they, too, could write one more chapter? (NBC didn't waste much time in following after FOX, deciding to revisit Heroes.) There's a lot riding on Jack Bauer's shoulders here, on-screen and off.

As video game sales continue to rival or even surpass Hollywood box office receipts, plenty of famous actors and actresses are crossing over to lend their talents to another industry. Funny thing is though, you might not even realize it. Plenty of game companies have recruited Hollywood stars to serve as voice actors for their top titles. Sometimes the star's in-game character is rendered after their real world appearance, but more often than not, the game will feature a character that looks nothing like the voice actor, leaving the most casual fans in the dark about who was behind the mic....

So far, Touch is coming together pretty nicely, with its intriguing pilot and solid second episode. This third one begins with Martin getting a call from the board and care facility, and he shows up much to the annoyance of Clea, who warns him to be careful. Both of them are surprised to find that Jake has escaped from his room again, and he's writing a new number: 3287.

As Clea's leading him back to his room, Jake slips a clipping of a dragon with the number on it into his father's jacket. Martin takes the number to our wise old guy, Teller (Danny Glover), who warns him to keep h...

It's the very next day after the events of the pilot, and Martin is insistent that his son is trying to communicate with him. Yet when Clea threatens to call the police, Martin reconsiders. Before he leaves, Jake writes the phone number to Arnie's Pawn Shop on his father's hand, the last four digits of ...

He's an average, working-class guy interrupted from his work at JFK Airport so that he can get his mute son Jake down from a cell tower. Soon afterward, the number 318 starts popping up, whether it's on the back of a school bus, or on the knuckles of a random man in a convenience store (Titus Welliver, looking totally differen...

It was funny. I was doing a play in New York on Broadway. I had a film that I knew I was going to go do and so I read Touch almost reluctantly. I don’t think I was completely ready to go back to television yet. I was enjoying some of the different opportunitie...
