'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'
She's the woman that Huck can't let go of, no matter how hard she tries to make him. The character of Kim has been breaking Huck's heart (and the audience's) since her first appearance on Scandal way back in season two, and for that we can thank actress Jasika Nicole, who brings her to life.

We had the opportunity to talk to Jasika last week about what it's like to play the emotionally wound up Kim (not easy), plus discuss how she was able to move forward from her best-known role as Astrid Farnsworth on Fringe.

"I did [my] first episode [of Scandal] and it was kind of like a dream," she e...

ackles, padalecki
It’s been a big week for “Supernatural” fans. The little show that could won two People’s Choice Awards (Favorite Network Drama and Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show). Suck it, “Vampire Diaries!” TVLine.com also reported that—SPOILER ALERT— “Supernatural” staple Jim Beaver will eventually return, and my favorite guest star, Mark Pellegrino will be reprising his fabulously evil turn as Lucifer in the episode 15. So this week's episode felt like icing on a very awesome pop cult cake.

“Time After Time” was artfully pieced together in a non-linear manner, but I’m going to do my best to break...

And with young Mr. Bishop still harboring the warm-and-fuzzies for his Mata Hari from the other side, not to mention a pileup of major revelations that come out in this week's episode (Friday, 9/8c on Fox), things just can't be black or white... or in the show's multiverse color scheme, red or blue.

Brittany's TCA 2011 Blog: FOX - 'Chicago Code,' 'American Idol,' 'Terra Nova,' & More

Chicago Code
FOX had its Television Critics Association presentation Tuesday, and from my front-row (literally) seat, I confirmed what I felt has been the case for awhile: while the network has consistently strong dramas, it still needs to find some reliable comedies - at least when it comes to ones that aren't animated.

Here's how the day played out:

The Chicago Code

The highlight of my day was easily the presentation for Shawn Ryan's new drama, The Chicago Code (premiering February 7). Given Ryan's pedigree as the creator of The Shield, The Unit and the recently axed Terriers, the buzz - and the ex...

J.J. Abrams is one busy guy lately. Recently I reported he and ‘Dark Knight’ scribe Jonah Nolan were working on a new television crime-thriller and today Deadline reported that Fox has greenlit a show based on Alcatraz, the infamous prison located on an island in the San Francisco Bay that housed some pretty famous criminals such as Al Capone. Abrams is set to produce the series and will work with ‘Lost’ writer Elizabeth Surnoff and producer Bryan Burk.

There have been a few other properties that feature Alcatraz as the setting. A few that come to mind are ‘Escape From Alcatraz’, ‘...
