(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)  MONDAY (1/14) Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Season resumes.  “Michael suffers the consequences of solitary confinement, Sona-style.”  I hate to think we left him in there these past few months. Kyle XY (ABC Family, 8pm):  Second season resumes.  “Kyle returns to the Tragers to tell them truth about his existence.”  Maybe ABC should consider stealing this show to fill their schedule.  Otherwise, I’ll never get around …

American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “In the men’s competition, an engineer takes on …

‘Tin Man’: SciFi Channel Meets ‘Wizard of Oz’

I was probably five years old the first time I watched The Wizard of Oz, under the assurances from my grandmother that I was sure to love the movie. Unfortunately, I was so completely terrified by the Wicked Witch of the West that I didn’t make it to the end of the yellow brick road until I was closer to the age of ten. But in the end, she was right. Besides achieving acclaim and immortality …

The Price of Striking Writers

The writer’s strike is still going strong, though new negotiations are scheduled to begin next week. That’s a really good thing, too, considering how expensive all these picket lines are getting. If the strike continues into next month, it’s projected that LA will lose $20 million – per day. It won’t just affect our TV watching and give a real boost to reality shows, it will actually hurt the economy of the entertainment-based city. For those …

I’m going to be honest, I’m not surprised that someone is re-doing Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain.  After all, since there’s a new pod person movie on the loose, films made (and remade) in the 70’s are now fair game for re-adapting.  Andromeda is being packaged out in a neat television mini series for USA with a cast headed up by Benjamin Bratt, who will play the formidable Dr. Jeremy Stone. This role will be a …

The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Coverage

The 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast.  Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)?  Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)?  Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony? What a difference a year makes.  Twelve months ago, we were still …

ABC will be airing a five-hour miniseries, titled The Path to 9/11 on Sunday and Monday. This is certainly a story worth telling and is likely to be an eye-opening look at what went wrong. As if the tragedy of September 11th isn’t enough, The Path to 9/11 reveals ten years of events that lead to the terrorist attacks. The series also looks at the “report card” issued in December by the 9/11 Commission, which gave …
