From LA Examiner: 'Revenge' Post (Not So) Mortem with Josh Bowman + Additional Spoilers; 'Happy Endings' Spoilers + Photos; 'Awake' Advance Review...


"A (thankfully not literal) “Chaos” postmortem with Revenge’s Joshua Bowman"

Can we all breathe a collective sigh of relief that Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman) himself was still left breathing at the end of Revenge’s Fire & Ice Ball? It was hard to imagine that the show would want to get rid of a character with whom so many fell in love, but then again, considering the couple at the center of the series was originally Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Jack (Nick Wechsler), we wouldn’t have put it past the show to kill off the competition to get the audience invested in the soulmates once again. Thankfully for Bowman-- and his fans-- though, the show found a way to keep him around and still complicate their relationship just enough that the wedge that is Jack may come between them yet...

"Happy Endings scoop: Kickball, cleanses, and another wedding!"

Happy Endings book-ended its first season with a pair of nuptials: the pilot kicked off when Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) left Dave (Zachary Knighton) at the altar, and then the season finale closed out with the group attending the wedding of a dear friend (and with Jane deciding she wanted a do-over wedding with Brad). But earlier today in Los Angeles, LA TV Insider Examiner learned from series star Casey Wilson that season two would also close out with a wedding... [MORE]


"Revenge delivers a new “Scandal” + Gabriel Mann’s fave line…you may never hear"


For the longest time, the question on every Revenge fan’s mind was whether or not it was Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman) who was the victim of the gunshots heard in the opening of the pilot. But now that “Chaos” delivered that answer, fans will have to prepare for a new “Scandal”-- actually, make that a few! Here are just a few of our favorite juicy moments to come as new episodes of Revenge unfold... [MORE]


"PHOTO PREVIEW: Colin Hanks as Colin Hanks on Happy Endings"


Colin Hanks is about to pull a Neil Patrick Harris in Harold & Kumar. Or to be a little bit more current and "in the family," a James Van Der Beek in Apartment 23. That is to say, Hanks will be taking a turn on Happy Endings playing a version of himself, a big time movie star with an earring and an attitude to match who becomes a fan of Dave (Zachary Knighton)'s foot truck...

"Mid-Season Preview: NBC’s Awake"


Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) is a broken man. When we meet him in the pilot of Awake, he has just survived a car crash that has killed his son. He and his wife (the seemingly brittle Laura Allen) mourn for a minute before he dives back into his work as a detective, dealing with a case about murdered cab drivers. He visits a therapist (B.D. Wong) to get over his grief. Only when he wakes up the next morning, his son is the one alive, his wife the one who perished in that car accident. He’s still a detective, but he has a different partner, a different case, and even a different therapist (Cherry Jones). He isn’t merely living a double life here; he is living out both sides of the sliding doors phenomenon. It is as if he is suspended in that car, seconds after the crash, watching two potential lives play out in front of him in order to decide which family member to save. In each world, Michael is only half a men, struck down hard by loss, so the result is heartbreaking... [MORE]
