With apologies in advance to the team of highly paid marketing and design experts who more than likely spent the better part of the past two months leading up to Comic Con holed up in a conference room creating the “Official” War Games-inspired poster for CHUCK, our vote goes to super-fan Ivette Gonzalez, whose submission to the 2010 CHUCK Comic-Con Poster contest won her a much-deserved runner-up accolade for her minimalist and clever approach.

When we last left Dexter Morgan, he was covered in a pool of you-know-whose blood. What happens next, well, that’s the good news.

Not coming to a small screen near you anytime soon will be…
FRINGE in 3D! At least if co-creator J.J. Abrams has anything to say about it. Turns out, the auteur is on “Team TV Addict’ when it comes to the technology that Hollywood executives can’t seem to get enough of. “The thing that drives me crazy about 3-D is that when you put on the glasses, everything seems dim,” said Abrams during Entertainment Weekly’s Visionaries panel. “I’m not totally on board yet.” Can we get an “Amen Brotha!”
