From LA Examiner: 'Switched at Birth' Gets The Backend; 'Awkward's Molly Tarlov Is More Than Just A Mean Girl; An Epic 'Falling Skies' Finale A'Comin!


"Switched at Birth to send twenty-two more episodes of family drama our way!"


Just in time for a brand new episode of ABC Family's Switched at Birth, the cable network announced this morning that they have picked up an additional twenty-two episodes of the freshman family drama. The series, which premiered in June, has been surprising audiences all summer long with its unique characters and surprising developments, so it isn't surprising to hear the network wants to continue the momentum...

"Molly Tarlov is so much more than just Awkward.’s “Queen Biotch”

In just about every strong teen drama, there is that character you love to hate-- that person who rides a thin line between being a one-note stereotype and a fascinating study on the human condition. When handled without care by an actor who isn’t willing to throw his or her all into the role, the character might be annoying or unlikeable, but when done correctly, the result is a complex and interesting study of behavior. As much bad as he or she may do, you find yourself eagerly anticipating the return to screen, even if not quite rooting for him or her. Molly Tarlov is that actress for Awkward., taking a the quintessential bitchy cheerleader role and turning it on its head with biting wit, tenacity, and an vibrancy not often seen since Regina George...

"Falling Skies first season finale sets up big changes for season two"

The season finale of Falling Skies is almost upon us, but the show’s producers and cast are already looking ahead to season two (and perhaps beyond). After all, they wrapped this first stellar season months ago, and they have been sitting back and getting as sucked into the characters’ struggles on-screen as we all are. Watching each week’s mini cliff-hanger has surely been harrowing, but the season finale cliff-hanger is quite a doozy! ... [MORE]


"Chuck season five to present a new face of the Buy More?"


When we had a chance to catch up with Chuck's Captain Awesome himself, Ryan McPartlin, at the NBC Universal TCA party in Los Angeles last night, he let us in on a little secret: Awesome is going to use his striking good looks for a spot of modeling—the face of the Buy More, to be exact. But when he did so, it was with a little twinkle in his eye that led us to believe there was more to the story than what he was telling us... [MORE]


"Drake Hogestyn & Deidre Hall tease their triumphant Days of our Lives return"

The television event of the decade is almost upon us. You can accuse us of being a bit melodramatic, but Days of our Lives is a soap opera, so in a way that might go with the territory. But we don’t think it’s an overreaction of any kind; after all, the greatest supercouple in all of daytime will be moving back in. Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn have already begun work on their brand new scenes in NBC’s last standing soap opera in Los Angeles, and last night we got to catch up with both of the powerhouse actors to find out what we can expect when we see them again on our screens...

"Marc Blucas comments on the new love triangle of Necessary Roughness"

USA’s hot new summer drama Necessary Roughness started strong with one especially key relationship: that of Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) and football coach Matthew Donnally (Marc Blucas). They meet in the pilot episode, a chance encounter in a bar, but they find they have a very real connection. Their night together turns into something a bit more lucrative for Dr. Dani, as she inspires Matthew to bring her aboard the team as therapist to the stars for a particularly troubled played. But ever since that first night, they haven’t quite grown and evolved as a couple as many fans were perhaps assuming. Or perhaps even how the actors were assuming... [MORE]
