The Top 10 Television Lawyers

June 10th, 2014 2:00pm EDT
The Top 10 Television Lawyers
In honor of the return of Suits - which features Harvey Specter, the best attorney currently practicing on television - we're recognizing our Top 10 Television Lawyers. Legal dramas are a staple on the small screen, and they've given us some fantastic litigators over the years.

Our list has only two criteria for inclusion: 1) That the character must be a practicing lawyer. No characters who just have law degrees, retired lawyers, or ex-lawyers. During the run of their show, we have to have seen them in the courtroom.

2) The characters are ranked by who we'd most want to represent us in co...

People That Aren't Doing It: Non-Romantic TV Relationships That Work

Hawaii Five O
(*Firstly, if you don't get the joke in the title, visit Failblog. I'll wait.)

There's been a tremendous response to my Tuesday article about the reasons why I'm not excited about TV romance. It's been really awesome to hear from fans of various shows and pairings, who wrote in with their own opinions and ideas, and helped create a great discussion of the topic and the issues surrounding it - most importantly, with respect for me and for each other.

As is natural and perfectly fine, there were some people who disagreed with my lack of enthusiasm. One reader suggested that romantic r...

Spotlight On Taraji P. Henson

July 30th, 2009 10:01am EDT
Taraji P. Henson
A star was born in Southeast Washington, D.C. on September 11, 1970 and her name is Taraji Penda Henson, otherwise known as Taraji P. Henson. The first name Taraji means "hope" and the middle name Penda means "love," both being of Swahili origin.

No one can argue against the fact that this 38 year old single mother, with one teenage son, has certainly paid her dues to get to her current level of success. Henson is a graduate of Howard University where she transferred to, earning a degree in Theater Arts. To put herself through college she worked as a secretary at the Pentagon and wait...

We'll Miss You 'Dirty Sexy Money'

July 18th, 2009 10:22am EDT
Dirty Sexy Money
Most of America is cutting corners these days - bringing lunch to work, cooking looking for happy hour specials, perusing the sale rack. But if there's one vestige of indulgence left, it is spying on the scandals and seductions of the Darling family of ABC's Dirty Sexy Money, which returns July 18.

The show was canceled in the spring, but the network was kind enough to burn off the remaining episodes, as it has already done this summer with the dearly departed Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone.

In the television landscape of reality competition shows and barely unscripted reality shows, ...

December 17th, 2008 11:05am EST
Eli Stone
Things have not been going so well for Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) lately. His new firm is struggling, his visions are getting more and more bizarre, and worst of all, he is lonely.

Friends, Lovers And Special Guest Stars On 'Eli Stone'

Things just keep on chugging along on "Eli Stone," despite word of the series' impending doom. This week, Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) takes some time off from wooing rich clients and/or saving the world and instead focuses on helping someone very near and dear to him, his assistant Patti (Loretta Devine). Other continuing storylines concern Jordan's (Victor Garber) disintegrating marriage and the Dowd/Taylor baby saga, the latter of which features a special appearance by Seal. So let's check in on our favorite San Franciscans (well, aside from Danny Tanner of course), shall we?

Eli Takes Down A Philanthropist On 'Eli Stone'

December 3rd, 2008 11:13am EST
Eli Stone
It has been a few episodes since Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) and Jordan (Victor Garber) started their own firm, and things have been going anything but smoothly since. The duo lost most of their former employees to Posner & Klein, are having a tough time attracting clients that will pay the bills, and are just finding the San Francisco legal waters to be rough in general. Things pick up right where they left off last time - with Eli having alienated the firm's biggest client by choosing to represent his son in an emancipation hearing.

Choosing Sides On 'Eli Stone'

November 12th, 2008 11:18am EST
Eli Stone
When last we saw Eli Stone and friends, Jordan (Victor Garber) had been ousted from the firm that he helped create. He and Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) decided to partner up and create a new, kinder and gentler firm of their own. That means that all of the lawyers and staff of the former Wethersby, Posner & Klein are given a very difficult choice to make - stay loyal to Jordan and leave Posner & Klein, or accept a huge raise from Martin Posner (Tom Amandes). The decision is an easy one for some, more difficult for others, but honestly, the majority of the people who have to make the decision a...

Actors & Actresses We Want To Return To TV

October 31st, 2008 10:16am EDT
Lauren Graham
While TV gives us one reality program after another, there are quite a few talented thespians that seem to be out of a job. Here's a list of TV actors we want to return to the small screen:

Lauren Graham

Let's be honest: she was the real star on Gilmore Girls. Rory's constant whining started getting tiresome around the third episode. And yes, we all had an opinion on the "Dean or Jess" question, but the real issue was when Lorelai and Luke would eventually get together. In the course of the show Graham defined the character of Lorelai and revealed herself to be a radiant, gifted a...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Lead Paint and a Magic Book

October 29th, 2008 11:19am EDT
Eli Stone
With the resolution of Eli's crisis of faith having already come (his reluctance to become a prophet was so last season), "Eli Stone" was in need of a larger story arc to keep the momentum going and provide viewers with a reason to tune in each week. Posner (Tom Amandes) and Klein's (Katey Sagal) attempt to wrest the firm from Jordan's (Victor Garber) control has provided just that. Not only does this week's episode continue to progress that story arc, but it also throws in a few more juicy tidbits from the future, especially one which rivals the Eli/Maggie baby flash-forward from season ...

Eli Finds Love (Again) On 'Eli Stone'

October 22nd, 2008 11:05am EDT
Eli Stone
Things are somewhat back to normal in San Francisco on Eli Stone. Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) has the aneurysm (and thus the visions) once more, pretty much everyone thinks he is crazy, and the city still has a fake baseball team (seriously guys, you can't pay a little extra to use the Giants?). Alas, the fake Barry Bonds from last season is nowhere to be seen.

A new vision, new case, and new love

The episode gets started with Eli and Nate jogging through a park. Eli mentions to Nate (Matt Letscher) that he finds it strange that he hasn't had another vision since getting the aneurys...

Sigourney Is The New George On 'Eli Stone'

October 15th, 2008 11:30am EDT
Eli Stone
When last we left everyone's favorite heartless lawyer turned defender of the defenseless, he had just undergone an operation to remove a dangerous aneurysm from his brain. It wasn't clear at the time whether Eli's (Jonny Lee Miller) visions also would disappear once the aneurysm was gone, as that whole "Lostish" science vs. faith argument was a major component of the show's first season. In the end, Eli hoped that with the aneurysm out of his brain, his visions would cease, and he could go back to living a normal live.

Whether or not he could go back to a normal way of life may have...

The Most Underrated And Overrated Things About The 2007-08 TV Season

June 20th, 2008 11:08am EDT
Gossip_Girl
The Emmy ballots are in, which means the 2007-08 TV season is officially over. Actually, the TV season officially lasted from June 1st until May 31st, but it doesn't really seem over until now. Now that we've had a few weeks to reflect, we can begin to formulate our opinions, or leave that up to the professionals, about the best and worst of the season gone by.

But that's easy. What about the far more enticing category of the most overrated and underrated? But we shouldn't limit ourselves to TV shows. Things like news stories, performances, and accepted perceptions are all ripe for...

ABC Stresses Stability, Not Ingenuity, With 2008-09 Schedule

May 14th, 2008 8:28am EDT
Ugly Betty
NBC got a jump start on the other broadcast networks with its "in-front" presentation last month, which occurred a full six weeks before the traditional upfront period. At that time NBC, mired in last place amongst the Big Four (poor CW barely registers as a blip and therefore does not count), presented a bold, dynamic and risky 2008-09 year-round schedule.

In the weeks that followed, there was naturally some speculation as to whether or not the other networks would follow NBC's lead and change the rules of the game. ABC, which unveiled its 2008-09 plans yesterday, was the first to...

'Eli Stone' Season Finale: Is George Michael God? And Other Burning Questions About the Universe

April 18th, 2008 8:55am EDT
George Michael
It has been a long and arduous journey for Eli Stone this season - both the character and the series. The character of Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) has had to deal with visions from God, a deadly aneurysm, and a complete change of lifestyle; while the series struggled with inconsistency early on. Although things for Eli the character have continued to be murky in recent weeks, "Eli Stone" the series has greatly improved in the second half of its season. All of that has lead to the season finale, which is without a doubt the strongest episode in the series thus far.

Time could be running out for the title character in "Eli Stone." With the date of his possibly fatal operation rapidly approaching, one might think that Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) would be a little preoccupied and thus not able to carry on with his normal, world-saving duties. Luckily for the citizens of San Francisco, that is not the case. For no sooner does Eli leave the doctor's office then he gets hit with a fairly terrifying vision.

The vision finds Eli in the back seat of a car being driven over the Golden Gate Bridge. From a radio announcement, he de...

It's a nice foggy day in San Francisco, and it's good to see that. This might seem nitpicky, but "Eli Stone" rarely features establishing shots of the city with the famous fog present, so it's a nice change. The writers don't waste any time moving things along this week, as Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) gets his vision in the first scene. And it's...wait for it...a vision of the future! No, it's not a dark, Sarah Connor-like nightmarish view of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but hey, it's still the future! Seems like a man named Dennis Mosley (Sterling K. Brown) is quite the popular leader in ...

Eli's (Jonny Lee Miller) visions take an odd turn as he learns more about his brother Nate's (Matt Letscher) dark past in this week's marginally entertaining installment of "Eli Stone." Nate is being sued by a widower (played by "Oz" alum Blake Robbins!), who claims that Nate made a biased decision when he passed over the man's wife for a heart transplant. He has good reason to believe that there was foul play involved, as his wife was an alcoholic, and everyone seems to know the problems that the Stone boys have with alcoholism. Thanks, dad!
