10 Of The Most Frustrating TV Show Cliffhangers Ever
One of the most frustrating things as a dedicated viewer of a series is when the writers put themselves into the undeniable situation of not knowing how to end things.

While some are successful ("Friends") some fall flat and give viewers the feeling that they have just wasted hours of their lives. Here are some of television's most frustrating cliffhangers ever. We still get annoyed thinking about them!

Whether you loved or hate the How I Met Your Mother finale, it just proves that we can all get a little too attached to our favorite shows sometimes. When the producers pull the rug out from under viewers in a much anticip...

CBS 'Intelligence' Series Premiere Is Refreshing And Convincing

January 8th, 2014 2:25pm EST
Intelligence
Intelligence debuted with a strong episode - cerebrally as well action-wise - along with a good starting plot and set-up for the series, and a generally outstanding cast.

Leading that cast is Josh Holloway in his first major television outing since his portrayal of Sawyer in Lost, one of the most memorable characters in that now classic series. Michael Emerson who played Ben in Lost has done well for himself in Person of Interest, so Holloway had a lot to live up to.  He's doing fine so far with his customary mix of sarcasm and no nonsense, a good persona for the lead character who is a ma...

Lost
Next year's San Diego Comic-Con could be home to a Lost reunion.

Amusingly, several Lost cast members were at this year's Comic-Con anyway, promoting their current projects. Michael Emerson, for example, was promoting his hit shot Person of Interest with J.J. Abrams.

Emerson told Zap2it, "I've heard some murmurings of some kind of reunion. Whether it will take place at Comic-Con or not, I'm not sure. No matter what happens, if anything happens, it will be really hard logistically to put it together."

Fellow Lost cast member Henry Ian Cusick was at the convention as well, chatting about u...

Fall TV: The So-So, The Bad And The Ugly

The X Factor
Thanksgiving is a few short weeks away, and before you slice into those turkeys, let’s take a look back at the new TV shows that are thriving and those that don’t have a Thanksgiving prayer. We’ll break it down by category.

Modest Hits

(We would have had a full-on “Hits” category, but there are certainly no runaways so far.) FOX’s ‘New Girl’ can be deemed a first-season success. The Zooey Deschanel comedy was the first fall series to earn a full season pickup, and for good reason: Its ratings are better than lead-in ‘Glee’ and it’s frequently tops on Tuesdays in 18-49. To date it’s ave...

Evangeline Lilly 'Very Concerned' Over Her 'Hobbit' Role

September 22nd, 2011 11:13am EDT
Evangeline Lilly
Evangeline Lilly fears "purist" fans will hate her role in The Hobbit because her character didn't feature in the book and was invented solely for the fantasy film adaptation.

The Lost actress' Sylvan elf Tauriel was created especially for director Peter Jackson's upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's classic novel The Hobbit.

However, Lilly admits she is terrified Tolkien devotees won't respond well when the movie epic is released next year.

Moviemaker Brett Ratner has apologized for including a joke about epilepsy in the TV trailer for his upcoming film "Tower Heist."

Top Ten TV Goodbyes: Who Makes The List?

May 20th, 2011 5:00pm EDT
The Office Goodbye Michael
With Steve Carell leaving ‘The Office’ last month, it’s time to reflect on big goodbye episodes. I thought ‘The Office’ pulled off his departure well, although I’m not sure how I feel about the future of the show.

Here’s my top ten list of other shows that have successfully sent a character off in style. The rules: it is a true “goodbye” episode with a major character or star departing. If it happens off-screen, it doesn’t count. So that’s why I’m not including some obvious departures, such as Rhoda Morgenstern, Frank Burns, Coach Pantusso, etc.

Here they are. Do you agree?
