This week: Grimm -- Person of Interest -- Teen Wolf -- Lost Girl -- Arrow -- Revolution -- Falling Skies -- Tweets -- Cats
New on Doux
I'm happy to announce that we are now covering four more shows. Four! In fact, we're practically at capacity, and right before the new fall season descends upon us.
New contributor Katie Hart is covering Grimm. Welcome to the site, Katie! She comes to us from her own impressive site, TV Breakroom. I've been catching up with season one of Grimm on DVD and am now wishing I'd given it more of a chance last fall.
New contributor Sunbunny will be covering Person of Interest. Welcome to the site, Sunbunny! She'll be doing her best to catch up with season one Person of Interest reviews before the second season starts. Person of Interest had a strong first season that just got more compelling as it came to a close, and I'm looking forward to what they do this fall.
Our own Panda has decided to take on Teen Wolf, and he started posting reviews of season two this past week. I've been telling myself that the title of a show is soooo not indicative of its quality, as a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer should very well know. :) So I'm planning to give Teen Wolf another try.
And last but far from least, J.D. Balthazar and Mark Greig have teamed up to review one of my new faves, Lost Girl! J.D. will finish out season two (which is airing on Syfy right now) and will do as much retro reviewing as he can manage this fall. And then J.D. and Mark will be tag teaming reviews of season three when it begins in January. I might be contributing, too, either with season three reviews, retro reviews, or both.
For the rest of what we're covering this fall, check out our fall preview for details. (The short version? Along with Grimm and Person of Interest, we're covering Doctor Who, Revolution, Haven, Castle, Fringe, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Dexter, 666 Park Avenue, Supernatural, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, Community, and Nikita.) (Wow. Remember when this site was just me?)
This week in casts
Torchwood fans (including me) were thrilled to hear that Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman, was taking on a continuing role on Arrow. They've also cast the Huntress. And Kelly Hu will be playing China White. Not that I actually know who these characters are, but I'm looking forward to finding out.
First Elizabeth Mitchell was recruited for Revolution, and now Jeff Fahey. Do you think they're trying to get Lost fans enthused?
The Doctor is in. Matt Smith is planning to stick around Doctor Who until 2014. I hope this one isn't just a rumor.
Falling Skies ended on an odd note this week, and (I'm trying not to spoil you if you haven't seen it) the new character they introduced has joined the cast and will be played by Doug Jones. (More about this here.)
Fringe star John Noble is back at work after being treated for a serious sleep disorder. Stay well, Mr. Noble.
Not exactly casting news, but Danny Strong, who is known for playing Jonathan on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is making a name for himself as a writer and will be writing a series for CBS about... lawyers. Unfortunately, not evil supernatural lawyers. Oh, well.
This week in cats
Presented without comment -- a cat named Arya singing the theme song from Game of Thrones.
Tweets of the week
Here's my Tweet of the Week from my favorite tweeter, Tim Carvell:
My favorite unseen "Breaking Bad" character: The Albuquerque meth connoisseur. "Oh, only the blue stuff for me, thanks."Jared Padalecki posted a naked picture of himself as a bribe for his followers for following his friend Steve Carlson.
Misha Collins, at a Creation Supernatural con, just tweeted:
I just stopped in to a hotel in vancouver to use the bathroom & steal some hand towels & everyone is acting like they know me. It's creepyFinally, a moment of reflection for Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, who died this week at the age of 82. One giant leap, Neil. His family asked that in lieu of memorials or contributions, that the next time we walk outside on a clear night and see the moon, think of Neil and give him a wink.
That's it for this week. Opinions, raves, rants, questions? Post a comment!
