Where the Frak have you been? Do you think you can just throw up an “Ask the Addict” anytime you damn well feel like it? I have needs you know! — TVLover28
The TV Addict: Look people, “Ask the Addict” is a two way street. One that only works when you actually take the time to you know, ASK THE ADDICT! Which is why we’re back. Because it turns out that more than a few of you
have yet to discover google have some really great TV questions which I’m going to do my absolute best to help answer. Ready….
I’ve been pulling my hair out all week long trying to find a pair of 3D glasses in time for Monday’s 3D episode of CHUCK. Help me TV Addict, you’re my only hope. — DownWithFulcrum
The TV Addict: The good news is that according to our sources, and by sources I of course am referring to NBC’s official CHUCK news page, 3D glasses can be picked up for free at any of the the following retail locations: Kroger, Ralph’s, Frys, Safeway/Vons, Supervalu, Food Lion, A & P, Pathmark, Coburns, Fresh Brands, Hy Vee, Nash Finch, Roundy’s, Winn Dixie, K-Mart, Dollar General, Hess (select stores), CVS (select geographies), Meijer (on 1/31) and Target (on 1/31). CHUCK’s big news page also claims that, “Should a display’s supply of glasses run out or if a retailer near you does not carry the glasses, consumers can call 1-800-646-2904 to obtain a pair for free.”
The bad news is that if you currently reside outside the United States you’re pretty much out of luck.
Unless of course you can scrounge together a cheap pair of plastic sunglasses, a red and blue permanent marker (ie. Sharpie) and a flat piece of clear plastic (ie. a transparency sheet) which combined, can easily be MacGyver’d together to create your very own pair of 3D glasses. Assuming of course you can follow these ridiculously instructions (Click for Video)
[Update] After checking in with our good friends over at NBC publicity, we’ve been informed that our attempt to MacGyver together our very own pair of 3D glasses will not work! Furthermore, viewers must use the “Color Code” glasses as the footage has been processed so it works with the Color Code technology.” D’oh!
Please tell me tonight’s episode of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA more than makes up for what Michael Ausiello called last week’s, “painfully tedious and self-indulgent art film.” — AusholeCharterMember#4
The TV Addict: What can I really tell you about tonight’s episode of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA other than it’s FRAKtastic? Well, it turns out a lot. Because I recently had the pleasure of viewing what I’m calling BSG meets Valkyrie and holy Frak it rocked! Sworn enemies are forced to work together to quash a Zarak and Gaeta led revolt, Starbuck and Lee Adama heat up the flight deck by doing their best Mr & Mrs. Smith impersonation and to cap it all off, the episode ends on a “to be continued…” so exciting that we pretty much can guarantee the death of at least one (possibly two) major characters when the episode concludes.
Is there any hope for a fourth season of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS? — shanemd (via twitter)
The TV Addict: It certainly look so, at least according to Brian Stelter’s incredibly informative TV Decoder Blog which reported this week that, “Ben Silverman, the co-chair of NBC Entertainment, sounds hopeful about a fourth season of the critically acclaimed drama.”
I need 3cc’s of HOUSE scoop, Stat! — ThirteenHater
The TV Addict: Since your insurance only covers you for 2cc’s a scoop, you’re going to have to settle for the following. On Monday’s 100th episode of HOUSE, Foreman’s attempt to sneak Thirteen into the clinical trial will have serious reprecussions for both of their careers. While two of your favorite Princeton Plainsboro docs start off the episode in under the sheets.
Any update on the ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT movie? — BlueMan4ever
The TV Addict: No. But, if you live in Toronto, fall between the ages of 17 and 27 and would like the opportunity to ask lone hold-out Michael Cera himself why he has yet to officially sign on the dotted line, stay tuned to theTVaddict.com next week to discover how you can become an extra on his upcoming film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Any word as to when the final three episodes of PUSHING DAISIES are going to air? — to_paraphrase (via twitter)
The TV Addict: The facts are these: No. But I can tell you that “the episodes were fantastic!!!” thanks to our good friends over at thepiemaker.com who were lucky enough to be invited by Bryan Fuller himself to a very
special exclusive screening of the final three episodes held for the DAISIES cast and crew. And in case you’re wondering, no we’re not at all insanely jealous that our good friends over at thepiemaker.com got to spend an evening with the entire cast of PUSHING DAISIES. Really.
