Now that you’ve heartlessly dropped HEROES from your weekly schedule, what’s next on the TV Addict’s chopping block? — Misty
The TV Addict: Would you think any less of me if I said PUSHING DAISIES? Because truth be told, stunning visuals and Kristen Chenoweth are quickly starting to lose their appeal amidst the overly cutesy and continuously confounding series. That said, I’m not prepared to bury DAISIES just yet. In other-words, Bryan Fuller, you’re on notice.
I just saw this message about THE RICHES being canceled and I have to say, this really sucks. Is there any hope for some kind of closure, a two-hour movie perhaps to wrap up the series. I’d think FX would want to thank their loyal viewers for all of their support. — Patrycjusz
The TV Addict: In a perfect world, I couldn’t agree with you more. In fact, nothing bothers this TV Addict more than when loyal viewers are cheated out of a proper ending to a series they’ve invested hours of their life in. Unfortunately our world is far from perfect. Just ask the fans of DEADWOOD, AMERICAN DREAMS, LAS VEGAS and OCTOBER ROAD how their happy was.
Any news on the fate of TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES following Monday’s episode. — FightingForTheFuture
The TV Addict: Well the good news is that TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES actually showed a small bump in viewership on Monday, up approximately 300,000 viewers. The bad news, 5.6 million total viewers doesn’t exactly guarantee the continued adventures of Sarah Connor. Which means I’d get your….. umm….. what exactly are we sending FOX in support of TERMINATOR?
Do you really expect me to take you seriously after bailing on HEROES? —HiroLover21
The TV Addict: Do you really expect me to take HEROES seriously after they imprison Hiro and Ando in a Top Secret Prison facility with an air vent, send Matt Parkman on a four episode spirit walk and foolishly give Sylar and Peter the ability to be all-powerful, only to see them constantly defeated in the most mundane and unimaginative ways?
Any SUPERNATURAL scoop, I’m so loving this season. — Wincestisbestest
The TV Addict: Since SUPERNATURAL showrunner Eric Kripke is virtually on par with GREY’S ANATOMY’s Shonda Rhimes in the spoilerphobe department. Scoop my friends, is at a premium. That said, I’m happy to share this little tidbit of info with regards to the upcoming October 23 episode. After Dean becomes infected with an illness, he begins to have fantasies that give new meaning to the term “Brotherly Love.”*
*Scoop may have been ‘borrowed’ from some Winchester Fan Fiction. The real scoop is as follows: After Dean becomes infected with an illness, Sam and Bobby must find the root of the disease before Dean dies and is sent back to Hell.
Got a recommendation for a show I should be watching this fall? — TVLover42
The TV Addict: Much to my surprise, this TV Addict continues to find himself entertained by the emotional, funny and somewhat fantastical world that is NBC’s LIPSTICK JUNGLE. So much so that it’s up there with PRIVILEGED and TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES as three Fall Shows that deserve a far bigger audience.
Stella is such a drag. If she’s the Mother in HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, I’m going to shoot myself — Nick C.
The TV Addict: Hey Nick, tell me how you really feel! But seriously, I’ve got some good news for you. This TV Addict has heard rumblings through the grapevine, okay, internets, that you have nothing to worry about.
Now that you’re done with HEROES, does this mean that you’ll have time to talk about America’s real favorite hero, Chuck Bartowski? — Iamtheintercept
The TV Addict: Totally! Of course my thoughts on CHUCK will have to wait a wee bit since this TV Addict will be in New York all weekend on a much-deserved vacation. And on a somewhat related TV note, if UGLY BETTY’s Becki Newton and/or Michael Urie happen to have their names set to Google Alert, I’m free all weekend if you’re in the mood for a little podcasting!
