Co-Star Got To Touch Eva Longoria Parker's 'Boobs And Bum'

7/13/2010 11:56am EDT
John Barrowman
John Barrowman got up close and personal with Eva Longoria Parker on the set of "Desperate Housewives."

He explained, "She's amazing. I gave her a good grope. We were doing some booty-dancing and I said, 'Show me some of that Latino a*s!' So she did. And then I was like, 'Your boobies are doing alright, too,' so I got to touch the boobs and the bum. She grabbed my goods, too."

Barrowman is best known for the BBC science fiction series "Doctor Who" and "Torchwood." He's gay.

Everything Geeky: Sci-Fi Shows You May Have Missed

11/4/2009 2:50pm EST
V
After watching the premiere of "V" last night, I was starting to wonder if Sci-Fi is going to make a real comeback into the spotlight. Let's face it, the popularity of this genre has risen in the past few years. It is no longer just the diehard Trekkies that care about Spock and Kirk, but the newcomers swarming after J.J. Abrams' reboot.

With shows like "Lost" and "Heroes" gaining notice on major television networks and the critical acclaim of "Battlestar Galactica," the stereotypes of typical "sci-fi nerds" is starting to wear off. In its place are people who never cared about phasers ...

Q&A With Aldis Hodge Who Plays Computer Hacker Alec Hardison On TNT's 'Leverage'

8/26/2009 11:53am EDT
Aldis Hodge - Leverage
Tonight's episode of Leverage (9pm ET on TNT) -- An episode we saw earlier this week and think it's the best episode of the season -- has the team going head-to-head with a rival gang of thieves that features Griffin Dunne and Wil Wheaton. Aldis Hodge -- who plays computer hacker Alec Hardison -- joins us to discuss the current season and to make sure you don't compare the show to "Oceans 11."

Mike: I'm curious, how much do you think you have in common with Hardison?

Aldis Hodge: Well, all the personality and humor's there; the sarcasm is there. As far as skills as a hacker, he's way ...

TV Shows With The Craziest Fans

Roswell
If you've ever been to Comic-Con, the names on this list should come as no surprise. These are the truly dedicated, those who don't hesitate to dress up as their favorite characters, debate for hours on the Internet with faceless strangers over continuity issues, or mail random objects to studio heads when their shows are threatened with cancellation. There's something about sci-fi in particular that seems to encourage its followers to take action. Is it devotion or obsession? Does it matter? Below are just a few of televisions brightest that have inspired some intense fan followings:

The Twelve Episodes of Christmas Television Gave To Us

12/14/2008 12:00pm EST
Mystery Science Theater 3000
Every year around this time, holiday specials fall on network TV like snowflakes, a comforting blanket of tradition and familiarity. But while those classics may be festive enough for some, we prefer a more modern take on the holiday season. From the heart-warming to the hilarious to the possibly offensive, here are twelve holiday-themed episodes from some of my favorite contemporary shows that put me in the Christmas spirit:

"Forgiveness and Stuff" (Gilmore Girls, Season 1 Episode 10)

Though the foundation of Gilmore Girls is the inseparable mother-daughter duo, the ...

'Torchwood' Episode Recap: Exit Wounds

4/21/2008 10:53am EDT
Torchwood
My dear sweet Torchwood, you've taken us all on quite a ride this season. You began with a handful of top-notch episodes, keeping us laughing and gripping the edge of our seats waiting for what happens next. Then things got a bit shaky for awhile, and some viewers were beginning to doubt you could hold our attentions until the end. Sure, there were fantastic episodes along the way, like Gwen's wedding, but there were also missteps such as the circus people. So were you able to restore our faith in this diamond in the rough, or did we click off halfway through a patented Jack-scowl?

What's The Best Show On TV Right Now? Starpulse Writers Weigh In

4/21/2008 8:33am EDT
Best TV Show?
What makes a TV show great? Is it the number of viewers or awards it has received? Not necessarily. In its last season, less than 3 million people tuned in to an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but it is unarguably one of the best sci-fi/fantasy shows of all time. In seven seasons, the show won just one Emmy - in 1998 for outstanding makeup. Guess what other fan favorite won just one Emmy (also for outstanding makeup)? Gilmore Girls.

Despite both series' original and witty screenwriting, they never received the props they deserved. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lauren Graham bo...

'Torchwood' Has Been A Rollercoaster Of Emotions & Quality

Torchwood
Ever wonder what the Torchwood crew does on their night off? Well, Tosh continues to work because she has no life to speak of and Jack probably does things I can't repeat here, but as for the rest of the team, they go to the movies. Ianto takes Gwen and Owen to the Electro, an old time movie house where they think they're going to be treated to a history of Cardiff. Gwen and Owen are understandably prepared to be bored, but Ianto is all about the black and white silent films.

While preparing the film, the son of the Electro owners notices that there is some creepy footage of sideshow f...

Torchwood Episode Recap: A Day in the Death

3/17/2008 10:09am EDT

You know what happens when you die? Well I learned from this week's episode of Torchwood that you become quite chatty and look to help others. This is really ruining my hope for a zombie apocalypse when everyone comes back from the dead a philosopher. So when we left our heroes, Owen was given an undetermined amount of time to "live" while the rest of the gang decides what to do with him. Oh, and Martha Jones is there, but you probably didn't notice her in the background, you know, right to the left of all the actual action.

So this week we have two storylines going on, both involving ...

Death, Alien Larva & More On 'Torchwood'

After last week's disappointing episode, Torchwood makes a triumphant return to form in the episode "Reset," which may not be the funniest episode this season, but it sure was the best. Torchwood working as a team, an alien mystery to solve, and one hell of a cliffhanger. Oh, and a little guest star in the form of Ms. Martha Jones, or should I say, Doctor Jones? (Freema Ageyman).

So we open with a medical mystery where unrelated murders are taking place, only nobody knows how exactly the victims are getting murdered, as there are no murder weapons and no apparent cause of death. Torchw...

Every year Torchwood brings Tommy, a British solider, out of cryogenic sleep. Apparently he's supposed to save the world. For the past 90 years he has not been needed. All that is about to change.

Ahh...stories about time paradoxes, if you think too hard about them your brain is likely to turn to oatmeal and force its way out of your ears. So let me try to explain it. The rift in Cardiff is pushing together two different time periods, 1918 and 2008. Since two times cannot exist at the same time all hell will break loose. The only way to close the time rift is to have Tommy, a soldier f...

From guest stars to script surprises, we learn just how much fun working for an alien hunting organization can be.

When last we left our heroes at "Torchwood" the team had survived an attack by one giant ass alien from the rift. Everyone hugged and kissed and was happy, and then Captain Jack Harkness heard a familiar noise and disappeared from Torchwood headquarters.

What's going on now?

Gwen took on the role of the team leader and seems to be doing well with teammates Ianto, Toshiko, and Owen. They end up in a relatively polite car chase with a fish-headed alien that ends with a hostage situation and the return of Jack.

Wait, didn't I see Spike in the previews?

With the Writers Guild of America still on the picket lines, faithful television watchers must look elsewhere for new entertainment. This means venturing into the uncharted realm of expanded digital cable. Nestled within this wasteland of depravity and cooking shows lies BBC America. Is it a beacon of light in the darkness?
