Winter TV Watch: Catch Up On Some Current Favorites

December 22nd, 2008 9:18am EST
Big Love
Television networks are so fixated on ratings that there is usually a dead period through the holiday season up to mid-January. Now is the perfect time to try something new that you may have skipped out on in the past.

In spite of airing on the CW, Supernatural has more in common with long-gone shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer than the network's current rich girl programming. In the beginning of "Supernatural" Sam and Dean Winchester were searching for their missing father and the demon that killed their mom. Like Prison Break, the major arc was laid out from the start. But the s...

Spiritual Visions And Company Men On 'Prison Break'

December 16th, 2008 11:14am EST
Prison Break
As we head towards the fall finale, things on "Prison Break" continue to heat up. Allegiances may have shifted (again), but Scylla remains the focus of nearly everyone's attention. When last we left our old friends, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had been taken in by The Company, and The General (Leon Russom) had struck a "bargain" (word of the day, right Pee-Wee?) with Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). The deal? If Lincoln and his friends are able to successfully return Scylla to The General, Big G will remove that nasty tumor from Michael's brain. Seems reasonable, right? Let's see if everyone...

'Prison Break' Star Sued By Parents Of Boy Killed In Drunk Driving Accident

December 11th, 2008 8:46am EST
Lane Garrison
The parents of a boy who was killed in a tragic drunk driving accident involving Prison Break star Lane Garrison are suing the incarcerated actor for the wrongful death of their son.

Karen Setian and Inaida Nalbandian filed a lawsuit against the actor in November, after his 2006 drunk-driving accident ended in the death of 17-year-old son, Vahagn Setian, reports TMZ.com. Garrison is currently serving a 40-month jail sentence after pleading guilty to a driving under the influence charge in October 2007.

Court documents accuse the actor of driving three high school students to a Bev...

The Chaos Continues On 'Prison Break'

December 9th, 2008 10:54am EST
Prison Break
Say what you will about "Prison Break," but if there is one thing that it has not been these past few weeks, it's predictable. While the series has always been prone to wild plot twists, quadruple-crosses and plenty of violence, things have really elevated to another level ever since the gang got the best of The General (Leon Russom) a few episodes ago.

Word of the Day: Gas

Things pick up right where they left off last week, with Self (Michael Rapaport) needing a final chip for Scylla, a chip that Michael (Wentworth Miller) possesses. Last week Michael invited Self to "come and...

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.

Just Like The Good Old Days On 'Prison Break'

December 2nd, 2008 11:01am EST
Prison Break
Last night's episode of "Prison Break" was probably the most reminiscent of season 2's unpredictability and general awesomeness that we have seen all year. Folks, that says a lot. Self's betrayal has shaken things up in a major way, altering the relationships of most of the characters and institutions that we have come to know and love (or hate). Throw in a few double-crosses and a few more deaths, and we've got one heck of an episode.

Michael Rapaport, how could you?

The gang still can't believe that they were set up by agent Don Self (Michael Rapaport). While the rest of the...

'Prison Break' Star Worried About Sexy Shots Of Girlfriend

November 27th, 2008 12:30pm EST
Amaury Nolasco
Prison Break star Amaury Nolasco is worried thieves might hack into his laptop computer and find sexy pictures of his actress girlfriend Jennifer Morrison. The actor was the victim of burglars, who broke into trailers on the set of the TV drama and stole valuables - and now he fears his House star girlfriend's body could be plastered all over the Internet.

A source tells In Touch magazine, "Amaury is worried sick about the computer.

He has some sexy pictures of his girlfriend... He hopes the thieves don't know how to hack into a computer."

It's Plot Twists A Go-Go On 'Prison Break'

November 25th, 2008 11:40am EST
Prison Break
When we left off last week, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had finally gotten his hands on Scylla but ended up tripping a silent alarm in the process. As he sat the staring at the machine in awe, The General (Leon Russom) was making his way down with several armed men in tow. So how did Michael work his way out of that one? There's that and so much more today, on "Prison Break: The Recap!" Roll Credits.

The General Gets Outgeneraled

Last week, Michael seemed awfully foolish as he just sat there, mesmerized by Scylla, completely unaware of the fact that he had tripped a silent ala...

Questionable Decisions Abound On 'Prison Break'

November 18th, 2008 11:22am EST
Prison Break
Things are starting to heat up on "Prison Break" as the ol' gang inches closer towards uncovering the secrets of Scylla. The double crosses will continue to pile up, and in true "Prison Break" fashion, the body count probably will as well. Before all that though, there is a matter of drilling. Lots more drilling.

Where is Tom Cruise when you need him?

Michael (Wentworth Miller) needs surgery (remember that massive tumor that he has growing on that freakishly genius brain of his?) and he is refusing to get it. Mahone (William Fichtner) tries to convince him to go get the tumor ...

One Step Closer To Scylla On 'Prison Break'

November 11th, 2008 11:26am EST
Prison Break
With Termie out of the picture and The General thinking that everyone is dead, the gang on Prison Break has a little window in which to find Scylla before it is moved. Will they take advantage of this opportunity? Or will Bellick's death be in vain?

Mourning

Everyone is in a very somber mood after Bellick's sacrifice. It is kind of hard to believe that the level of grief the gang is feeling over Bellick's death is so high, as until quite recently he was despised by pretty much all of the major characters. Then again, these guys (and gal) have been through quite a lot together...

Sad Times On 'Prison Break'

November 4th, 2008 12:18pm EST
Prison Break
The body count has been significant this season on "Prison Break," and last night it climbed even higher as two more major characters were lost, including one that has been around since the very beginning. Throw in a few more plot twists and you've got yourself one heck of an exciting episode.

From torturer to torturee

Picking up from where we left off, the gang has captured Termie (Cress Williams), and they are trying to coerce him into calling The General (Leon Russom) and telling the big dog that everyone is dead. That will allow them to break into The Company facility and ...

A Long Expected Betrayal On 'Prison Break'

October 21st, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
This week on "Prison Break," the gang finally was subject to a long-expected (at least by viewers) betrayal by computer wunderkind/all around dirtbag Roland. While this plot development was hardly a twist, there were enough interesting tidbits, plot developments and action to keep things rolling and provide us loyal viewers with another exciting installment.

Those were the days…

We start off this week with an exciting flashback from Lincoln's past, back in his days of depravity. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and his companion have a job to do, and it involves brute force (hence why ...

This Week on 'Prison Break:' Blood Feuds, Indecent Proposals... and Vegas!

October 7th, 2008 12:16pm EDT
Prison Break
The best season of "Prison Break" thus far was season 2. Sure, purists had a problem with it ("they're no longer in prison!); but as far as unpredictability, craziness, and sheer fun are concerned, it was unmatched. Well, that might all be about to change. Season 4 might have started off a little unevenly, but if the past few episodes are any indication, the journey to the season (and perhaps series) finale is going to be quite a trip.

Not So Strange Bedfellows

'Prison Break' Recap: Changing

September 30th, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
The great thing about "Prison Break" is that even when it does enter the occasional rut of repetition and predictability (and honestly, there aren't many shows that don't), things usually don't take too long to get back on track. That is why it was only a matter of time before the show broke away from the "card an episode" format and we received an exciting new installment that advanced several storylines.

A Day at the Track

Ok, so just because the card an episode formula from the past few episodes was not utilized this week does not mean that there were no cards involved. They ...

Not Just On TV Anymore: Favorite Series Are Now Just A Click Away

30 Rock
Not everyone has TiVo. As nice as it would be to come home late from work or class and be able to flip on 30 Rock or SportsCenter even though they aired hours before, some do not have that luxury. For some, if a show is missed, it is gone forever. The luckless viewer is resigned to hope for repeat airings or, for those most unfortunate, future syndication. However, a new day has dawned for those left in TiVo's shadow.

Now, many of the major broadcast and cable networks have engaged the possibilities of integrated marketing. With the increasing popularity of the Internet and the prolife...

'Prison Break' Recap: Breaking Into Federal Buildings In 30 Minutes Or Less

September 23rd, 2008 11:50am EDT
Prison Break
Thanks to fare such as "24" and "Prison Break," Monday night has become synonymous with over-the-top, illogical, nonsensical, but nevertheless eminently enjoyable escapist programming. Naturally, with an all new episode of "Prison Break" airing last night, that trend continued. And it was good. "Prison Break" good (which really is a classification all of its own), but there is one caveat. If there is one thing that "Prison Break" usually isn't, it's formulaic. However, in recent weeks, the hunt for the data cards has become just a little repetitive. Thankfully, there is enough jolly o...

Holly Valance: 'Court Case Left Me Broke'

September 22nd, 2008 10:09am EDT
Holly Valance
Prison Break star Holly Valance was left broke following a court battle with her former manager - insisting a "plumber" made more money than her at the time.

The Australian actress made her name in her native country, starring in soap opera Neighbours, but her promising career had to be put on hold when her ex-manager sued her for alleged breach of contract.

In 2003 Valance was forced to pay out around $259,000 in compensation as well as spiralling legal costs. And she insists that the incident stripped her of all her savings and left her completely penniless.

She says, "The ...

So what happened this week on "Prison Break?" Did the gang find another card? Did someone get killed? Were there any major plot holes? Was it entertaining? No need for suspense...the answer to all those questions is yes. You shouldn't be surprised. This is "Prison Break," after all.

The Obligatory MiSa Pandering

Things kick off this week with a tender little moment between Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies). They look longingly at boats and talk about how some day, they will sail away together. That's all well and good, except for one little problem...

'Prison Break' Recap: Someone Dies, Lincoln Sweats, Michael Saves the Day

September 9th, 2008 10:29am EDT
Prison Break
Last week's lengthy, exciting, confusing and show-changing season premiere effectively (or ineffectively, depending on how you look at it) put the Sona storyline to rest and brought the action back to the U.S. New characters were introduced; both heroes and villains. There were awkward, inexplicable reunions, shocking losses, hasty exists, and of course the obligatory Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) brawl. So, how was the follow-up, now that the story arc of the season has been established? Pretty solid, even if it did lack an appearance from everybody's favorite Revlon Girl (Jodi Ly...

'Prison Break' Premiere is Sloppy, Yet Satisfying

September 2nd, 2008 10:36am EDT
Prison Break
Ahh, the long awaited return of everyone's favorite over-the-top, unrealistic, yet incredibly entertaining television series. No, we're not talking about "24" folks (although Jack will be back soon enough), but rather its erstwhile Monday night partner in crime, the incomparable "Prison Break."

Last season ended abruptly thanks to that pesky strike, but those clever writers still managed to lay the groundwork for another spectacularly unrealistic year. What followed was a wildly uneven, yet ultimately entertaining premiere, which began as a muddled mess and by its conclusion had co...

Top 10 Shocking Moments In Recent Television History

Audiences love television because it allows the viewer to become a voyeur. Great television, though, allows the viewer to identify with the characters on screen and become wholly immersed in the fictional world that’s being created. Television can also shock viewers.

In an age in which the viewer can become a fly on the wall in a Mafioso household or counter terrorist agency, it’s no surprise that audiences can be stunned by what they see on television. However, there are moments on the small screen that stick with us. Twists, revelations, and blind sides leave our mouths agape a...
