Hey TV Addict, lately you’ve been on a serious roll when it comes to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA spoilers, what have you got for us tonight? — LiveStrongAnders
The TV Addict:
Unfortunately, I’ve got some bad news for you that you may or may not want to hear. Tonight’s installment offers up another slow, meandering and quite frankly disappointing tale that only pays off in the exciting final act. But on the plus side, fans of both Katee Sackhoff and Grace Park in particular will be very pleased with the amount of screen-time both actresses receive.

I’m sick and tired of another episode of HOUSE that was practically Cameron and Chase free. Please tell me you’ve got some good news? — FreeCameron
The TV Addict:
I do not. Because as I learned after daring to defy the most powerful man in television scoopery earlier in the week, HOUSE scoop is the sole domain of one Michael Ausiello. That said, I do in fact have some interesting HOUSE news (just so we’re clear, it’s news not scoop) that will put a smile on the face of any and all ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT fans. On the March 16th episode of HOUSE cleverly titled “Here’s Kitty,” the always hilarious Judy Greer drops by to play a nursing-home worker who fakes sick to get House’s attention after the home’s pet cat singles her out as being on death’s door by sleeping next to her. Hilarious right? Okay not so much. But as long as the episode’s writers manage to sneak in Kitty’s trademark “Say Goodbye to These!” you won’t here me complaining.

Loved last week’s episode of DOLLHOUSE but can’t help but wonder, how long is it going to take for Tamoh Penikett’s Agent Ballard to come face-to-face with Eliza Dushku’s Echo? — TeamTamoh21
The TV Addict:
Well the good news, according to my man on the inside of the Dollhouse (also known as the FOX press release that was sent out to the media on Wednesday) is that Agent Ballard will come face-to-face and fist-to-fist with Echo for the very first time on March 20th. The bad news is that we’re not so sure as to how many viewers are going to be around to watch this epic confrontation when the series finale of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA airs at the very same time! Cut to opportunity to shamelessly plug the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Frakkin’ Finale Party that is throwing in Toronto, click here for details.

Dear Mr. TV Addict, you would be legen… wait for it… dary in my books if you could give me some news about my favorite show HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. — GirlwiththeYellowUmbrella
The TV Addict: In what will hopefully cement my legendary status, here is a first look at THAT 70’s SHOW star Laura Prepon playing Ted’s old College girlfriend Karen. Much to Lily and Marshall’s chagrin (see photo), Karen sticks around for multiple episodes starting March 9th.

Is it wrong that I’m only looking forward to KINGS because Macaulay Culkin is going to be on the show? — MacAddict
The TV Addict:
We’re not going to lie, kind of (as we make the classic “Home Alone” face!) But really, who am I to judge? Do you have any idea as to how much TV I watch? Which is why I’m going to answer you straight up by revealing that while alluded to in the third episode, Macaulay Culkin’s character doesn’t actually make an on-screen appearance until the sixth episode because it turns out that he was banished from the fictional kingdom of Gilboa for a very juicy reason. One that I would love to tell you more about, but can’t spoil here, due to the aforementioned non-disclosure agreement I signed upon my recent visit to the set of KINGS.

What happened to February Sweeps? — Jeremy
The TV Addict:
The traditional home of an endless parade of new episodes, jaw-dropping plot twists and special guest stars was pushed back to March this year because the networks were concerned that their viewership levels would be down thanks to the internet, video games, a five thousand channel universe, the big scary switch to digital TV. And to ensure you don’t miss any of your favorite new and returning shows this March, be sure to drop by on Monday for your March 2009 downloadable and printable calendar.

Loving the new season of 24, any scoop? — VoteBauer
The TV Addict:
Since FOX took the unusual step of going out of their way to send your very own TV Addict an early copy of March 2nd’s back-to-back episodes, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you’re not going to want to miss what will undoubtedly be a “game-changer.”

Really excited about meeting you at your just announced BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Frakkin’ Finale Party, but I just have to ask. Is TV Addict Podcast co-host Ariel going to be there? — WhattheFrak
The TV Addict:
If you honestly think it’s possible to keep Ari away from a bar filled of eligible bachelors on a Friday night, well, clearly you haven’t been listening to our podcast long enough! But in all seriousness, Ari wanted me to pass along the following message, “There’s a slim chance I will be out of town… but if I am in the country there’s no where else I’d rather be.”

I’m loving the latter half of TERMINATOR but am really hoping that we get to see the robot formerly known as Cromartie get up out of that chair and cause some mayhem. Whatcha got for me? — HotforHeadey
The TV Addict:
How does an exclusive from the man himself, actor Garret Dillahunt sound? According to Dillahunt, John Henry will very soon get set loose on the world, make a very dangerous friend and find himself in his first fight that acts as a “real learning experience.” Not enough for you? Check back later today for our conversation with Dillahunt in its entirity.

More BSG spoilers please, I cannot wait until tonight! — Cylon423
The TV Addict:
Two words, “Amber Alert.”

Well that about wraps it up folks for this edition of “Ask the Addict.” if you’ve got a question for the TV Addict, you can email me directly at or follow me on twitter at

    Cool, more Dillahunt, can’t wait!

    Btw, based on the spoilers, I’m not sure he even appears on the show before March 28, let alone gets a prominent storyline and finally leaves the damned ZeiraCorp and all the accompanying nuisance that goes with it.

    Have you gotten a chance to see anymore of the Dollhouse episodes than those that have aired? I’ve been suprisingly disappointed in the show so far, but it is Joss Wedon, so I’m still on board for a few more episodes. I was curious as to whether it would be worth it.

    Oh and moving sweeps = another reason to hate the stupid DTV switch. I’m not a government conspiracy kind of gal, but this was clearly just a scheme for them to make money. They took the broadcast airwaves and sold them. Hopefully they’ll add the money to the stimulus package. 😉
