'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '7:00 PM - 8:00 PM' - Violent Demises

'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '7:00 PM - 8:00 PM' - V
At the end of last Monday's episode, 24: Live Another Day revealed a very 24 twist when it blew up a major character, if not plotwise, then certainly in title. It's not so surprising, then, that the show now makes another very 24 move and follows that up with a "Well, not exactly..."

This week's action begins with everyone at the embassy watching news coverage of the blast that they all now know killed President Heller. The Prime Minister (hey, Stephen Fry still works here!) tries to comfort Audrey, before Caroline (Miranda Raison still works here too) questions whether or not Margot will ...

Yvonne Strahovski Joins 'Dexter' In New Season

June 13th, 2012 10:34am EDT
Yvonne Strahovski
On the one hand, I really didn’t love the last season of Dexter. On the other hand, I loved the ending enough that I want to see how they pulled it off.

And now, with the announcement of Yvonne Strahovski joining for a multi-episode story arc, I’m definitely on board.

She proved on Chuck that she can be funny or dramatic depending on the scene, so I can’t wait to see her tackle a role so very, very different from Sarah Walker.

According to reports, she’ll play Hannah McKay who is noted as “a strong, independent woman with a past that she’s struggled to put behind her.” She’ll work at Mia...

'Chuck' Recap: 'Chuck Versus Sarah'/'Chuck Versus The Goodbye' (Series Finale)

January 28th, 2012 1:04am EST
Chuck
It's the end of the road for Chuck. And there's a lot at the end of that road: laughter, tears, and romance, even if it's not in the way you might want.

Sarah, still believing the villainous Quinn (Angus MacFadyen) is her handler, is making Chuck more than a little confused. Faced with the idea that he almost lost her and Morgan because of the Intersect, he launches a mission to destroythe thing that changed his entire life. He's shocked when Sarah uploads the Intersect instead and leaves the whole team trapped in the lab. Even she is surprised when Quinn activates the explosive h...

Q&A: 'Chuck' Star Adam Baldwin & Co-Creator Chris Fedak Say Finale Is 'Epic And Special'

Chuck
Tonight, NBC's Chuck signs off after five seasons - but not before I got some parting words from star Adam Baldwin and co-creator Chris Fedak.

Chris, what can we expect from tonight's finale?

Chris Fedak: We have essentially an epic finale for you guys. It’s going to be different than anything we’ve ever done before on Chuck. We knew that we were building toward our final episode, and we really wanted to put together something special.

It’s going to be a two-hour finale. The first part of it is called "Chuck Versus Sarah" and the second part’s called "Chuck Versus the Goodbye." Everyth...

Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski got herself painted in palm fronds and coconuts to promote Sobe's three new flavors of Lifewater.

The South Beach-shot photo spread, which sees her in a 'skinsuit' of tropical-themed body paint to match the theme of Sobe's new Lifewater with Coconut Water, will appear in Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue, which hits newsstands on February 14.

Below, Yvonne took some time out of her busy schedule - she was on her way to shoot the feature film I, Frankenstein with Aaron Eckhart - to talk with me about her first modeling experience, being a beautiful w...

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012
It's hard to believe for many of us the 1982 was 30 years ago. In that year, Ronald Reagan was President, Joe Montana was the Superbowl XVI MVP and the space shuttle Columbia made its first mission.

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond. In music Michael Jackson released Thriller which sold more than 25 million copies, becoming the biggest selling album in history.

'Chuck' 5.08 'Chuck Versus The Baby' Review

December 31st, 2011 12:07am EST
Chuck
This week's Chuck boasts some very familiar special guests - and a baby. It's unashamedly sentimental, but that's just fine for a fun adventure as we near the end of the series.

Five years ago, in Budapest, Sarah was hanging out with Peter Burke...wait, wrong show, but that is Tim DeKay of White Collar as Sarah's handler Kieran Ryker. He orders her to take out a dining room full of thugs and rescue a baby. Now Ryker's defected, and that cute little baby is coming back to haunt Sarah.

Seems the tot was in line for a huge fortune, and rather than turn him over to Ryker so that he coul...

'Chuck' Recap: 'Chuck Versus The Curse' (5.06)

December 17th, 2011 12:14am EST
Chuck
On this week's Chuck, the CIA is ticked, Morgan thinks he's a ninja, and Rebecca Romijn ruins date night for Ellie and Awesome. "Chuck Versus The Curse" is a typical Chuck episode. It could also have been a lot more.

Devon and Ellie pick an unfortunate time to play spies, as the CIA confuses them with Chuck and Sarah (via Chuck's OpenTable account of all things?). Although this is eventually clarified, they believe Robyn Cunnings (Romijn) when she says that she works with Chuck, and get themselves abducted. Robyn wants The Omen (not the movie, the virus from "Chuck Versus The Hack O...

Chuck
I don't know about you, Chuck fans, but to me a Buy More convention sounds like fun. There's one in Riverside this week, and it's the start of more fun, action-packed shenanigans that resurrect just what makes Chuck tick.

Team Bartowski is determined to get the Intersect out of Morgan's head in order to stop the CIA from having him killed. This briefly reunites them with General Beckman (Bonita Friederecy), but also brings Decker (Richard Burgi, who seems to have found a second wind in his career playing jerks) back to say that a top-flight assassin named "The Viper" is going to c...

Season five of Chuck got off to a good start with last week's season premiere. It keeps rolling this week, with a second episode that starts to lay out where the final year is headed.

This week, we meet the competition: Verbanski Corp, led by Gertrude Verbanski (that's The Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss, sounding like she's narrating a Cyberdyne advert). She used to work for the KGB, and Casey really doesn't like her, having had a nasty run-in (and subsequent fling) with her in 1995. Since then, she's put together a whole compound of minions, and is out to recruit a few more from Tea...

TV on DVD: 'Chuck: The Complete Fourth Season' [Blu-Ray]

October 13th, 2011 2:17pm EDT
Chuck
In case you missed it, NBC's Chuck is moving to Fridays for its final season beginning October 28. To prepare you for the end of one of TV's cult hits, Warner Home Video recently released the complete fourth season on Blu-Ray and DVD. Here's an evaluation of the Blu-Ray edition.

The Show

I reviewed Chuck throughout the fourth season, and on second glance, my opinions haven't changed all that much. There are a lot of things that work, and some that just don't - which makes it pretty much like every other TV series out there. I have yet to see any show have a perfect season. What ...

Seth Rogen Calls Barbra Streisand Mom, Dumps Yvonne Strahovsky In 'My Mother's Curse'

September 28th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Seth Rogen in My Mothers Curse
Seth Rogen has had many comedy costars: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco. Next he has a true diva. Barbra Streisand plays his mother in My Mother’s Curse. Not many people get to call Babs mom.

“I didn’t call her that that often but it was great,” Rogen said while promoting this week’s new release 50/50 at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We actually worked very well together I think. It was a lot like Joe [Gordon-Levitt] in that she really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy with a mother and son.”

The duo goes on...

'Chuck' 4.22 'Chuck Versus The Cliffhanger' Review

May 17th, 2011 12:04am EDT
Chuck
Chuck played by the numbers: it set up a big event (Chuck and Sarah's wedding) for its big finale, an episode which you can consider even bigger as we now know it also sets the table for the show's fifth and final season. It wasn't the whiz-bang finale I was expecting after all the hype, but it was one that was true to what the show stands for, and that's good enough for me.

To save Sarah, Team Bartowski must get the antidote she needs from Alexei Volkoff, which pits them against hardened CIA operative Clyde Decker (Richard Burgi of Desperate Housewives and The Sentinel). True to...

'Chuck' 4.23 'Chuck Versus The Last Details' Review

May 9th, 2011 11:54pm EDT
Chuck
Like our title character, Chuck fans know that when you say everything is perfect and nothing can go wrong, something - a lot of somethings, actually - will go wrong. In this case, 'wrong' sees Ellie turn into the wedding planner equivalent of a Bridezilla and Chuck's mom get kidnapped by Vivian Volkoff. No big deal, right? (Obvious sarcasm is obvious.)

"Chuck Versus The Last Details" feels like a typical Chuck episode, in that it derives much of its humor from our heroes' errors, quirks and mishaps, like Jeff and Lester having hours of footage of Sarah from the Buy More, or Chuck a...

'Chuck' 4.21 'Chuck Versus The Wedding Planner' Review

Chuck
I've got two words that come to mind with this week's Chuck: Gary Cole.

While he's a fine dramatic actor (I still miss Wanted and to a lesser extent, Crusade), Gary Cole is always going to be Bill Lumbergh from Office Space to me. He's got great comedic ability that makes everyone around him funnier, and his work as Sarah's con-artist father Jack Burton is no exception. I know much has been made of Linda Hamilton's casting as Chuck's mom this season, but I'd say Cole is just as good as Sarah's father. It was immensely fun to see Jack actually somewhat in charge of Team Bartowski thi...

'Chuck' 4.20 'Chuck Versus The Family Volkoff' Review

April 12th, 2011 12:00am EDT
Chuck
I wouldn't want to be Vivian Volkoff. Especially not since she's evil these days.

The CIA has fingered her as personally responsible for the bombs planted in Castle last time out, and tagged her for assassination. Vivian pleads innocence, and Chuck is forced to turn to her father, Alexei (Timothy Dalton, still in fine form) to help prove it, starting with finding all the components of a weapon she unearthed in his arsenal. This takes them to Somalia (hello, blatant Windows Live product placement!), where one piece is in the hands of a gambling-addicted pirate. It's pretty funny to se...

'Chuck' 4.19 'Chuck Versus The Muuurder' Review

March 22nd, 2011 12:01am EDT
Chuck
After the royal screwing up of the Gretas last week, this week's Chuck is like Clue, only with extra dead bodies. It sees our hero with Bentley's job of finding more Intersect candidates, and to no one's surprise, they're a weird bunch. There's an obligatory training montage, but just as Chuck is about to pick the winner, one of them is murdered. And then another is nearly blown up. Chuck's first day as the boss is not a good one.

The plot gives us a series of amusing interrogations - there's the girl who says she's too emotional, while crying, and the guy who can't get sent anywher...

Chuck
First things first: I am in love with this episode title. It sounds like something out of a comic book, and I think it's cool.

Having said that, this episode can be seen as the second part of "Chuck Versus The Masquerade," picking up as Vivian McArthur Volkoff (Lauren Cohan) is quickly visited by Satan - I mean, Riley (Ray Wise), her father's lawyer, who is not happy when she declines to take over the family business. He's so unhappy that he pulls a gun on her, leading her to knock him upside the head with a vase and escape with the mysterious card she found in the safe. The card lead...

'Chuck' 4.14 'Chuck Versus The Seduction Impossible' Review

February 8th, 2011 12:44am EST
Chuck
Chuck has a tough act to follow after last week's psuedo-season (psuedo-series, even) finale. Now that Chuck and Sarah are reunited (and engaged!) the members of Team Bartowski are all too happy to get back to spy business, which means rescuing Roan Montgomery (John Larroquette) from Marrakesh, where he was last seen investigating (what else?) a group of female mercenaries led by Fatima (Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Lesley-Ann Brandt). Montgomery isn't all that happy about being rescued, especially since one errant sneeze gets everyone except Casey thrown in the dungeon. Since the...

We learned from last week's Chuck that Sarah was planning to go undercover in order to help Mary Bartowski take down Alexei Volkoff. This week, the ongoing plot once again returns to center stage - and it begins with Sarah beating the stuffing out of Casey. No, really.

It's been a few weeks since she's gone under, and having successfully pulled off several rogue jobs (and changed her hair color), she's come to the attention of Volkoff. She appeals to his romantic side, then disarms three of his bodyguards for measure, and that gets her a hug. (Yes, even bad guys hug people.) Her fi...

When we left Chuck about a month and a half ago, it was one awkward Thanksgiving. It's no wonder that Chuck is taking stock of his life and wanting to propose to Sarah. Fortunately, just after he finds out she has "major proposal issues," Team Bartowski is shipped to a French chateau to recover a nanochip before a terrorist. This would seem the perfect opportunity to accomplish two things at once, but of course it wouldn't be that easy or we'd have a very short episode.

Recovering the nanochip requires going to the chateau and retrieving it from a bottle of wine, but not before sai...
