Any word on how Colin Hanks is going to fit into the new season of DEXTER? — Dave
The TV Addict: Words, we’ve got plenty. What’s more, they’re not just a random collection of ambiguous ones strung together in a desperate attempt to leave readers with the impression we know far more about the upcoming sixth season of DEXTER than we actually do. Rather, they’re from the former good guy himself, Colin Hanks, who was kind enough to make up for interrupting our one-on-one with HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’s Jason Segel during last week’s CBS/CW/Showtime Party by dropping a few hints about what fans can expect from his character. “Here’s the problem. So much of the show is a secret that they’ve sort of engrained in me to not ruin the secret and when you sign a legal binding document it sort of makes you not want to do that. What I can say is that my character Travis restores ancient artifacts and he has a relationship with a Professor Gellar that’s played by Eddie Olmos,” said Hanks, of his character who is sprinkled in throughout the season. “It’s amazing and I want to tell the world about it but I can’t. Here’s the one thing I can say, there are a few instances this season where we are doing things that the show has never done before that will make all the DEXTER-heads flip out!”
Is there any truth to the rumor that GLEE is going back to its first season roots this year? — Drew
The TV Addict: Indeed there is. So much so that fans will be thrilled to discover that when GLEE does return for its much-anticipated third season this Tuesday September 20th at 8PM on FOX (Global TV in Canada), it will do so in a very familiar fashion. Teased star Lea Michele during last week’s FOX TCA Party, “This is the only top secret information that I can give you. I was really hoping that in this upcoming season I would get no slushies, no mess and whatever and then… like page two of script one I’m already a mess! Obviously they’re doing it on the first script because we’re coming back from the break happy and well rested. Had they put that in mid season we all would definitely have said no, I’m not looking forward to that.”
This DEGRASSI addict needs to know if HIGHLAND GARDENS is coming to the United States? — Cindy
The TV Addict: According to our highly placed — and we should mention on the off chance he or she is reading this — super awesome source at Epitome Pictures (The company behind both DEGRASSI and HIGHLAND GARDENS) no deal has yet been struck for a US Network to carry the Canadian series. As such, we feel that now is as good a time as any — again, on the off chance our highly placed source is reading this — to humbly suggest that Epitome look towards the CW, a channel which is in desperate need for some addictive, not to mention, affordable summer programming come 2012.
Any idea what Dan Scott is doing back in ONE TREE HILL? — Stephanie
The TV Addict: Not really. Of course if we were a betting man, which by the way we’re not, we’d be putting down a sizeable junk of our non-existent blogging riches on Dan Scott not surviving the season. Don’t forget, you heard that here first.
Any clue as to how Marshall and Lilly will deal with being expectant parents on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER this season? — Bianca
The TV Addict: Since Marshall and Lilly’s baby isn’t scheduled to arrive until May sweeps, we’re not gonna lie, we got nothing. Except to reveal how Marshall’s portrayer Jason Segel feels about the matter. “The thing I’m most nervous about are these poor actor babies who are going to have to be on set with me because I’m not good with kids at all,” said Segel. “Babies are terrified of me, I’m gigantic and kids are really scared!”
From the sex of the baby, to whether or not Booth and Brennan are going to live together, November 3rd is far too long to wait for BONES to return. Help me TV Addict, you’re my only hope! — Allie
The TV Addict: Okay, here’s the thing. Knowing full well how desperate BONES fans are for even the teensiest morsel of information with regards to their favorite couple (Yes, we said it, actual, honest-to-goodness couple. Finally!) our number one mission at the recent FOX TCA Party was to corner anyone even remotely related to BONES and pepper them with questions. That’s the good news. The bad news is that creator Hart Hanson has his cast trained incredibly well, to the point that the only thing the usually talkative Michaela Conlin (Angela) would spill is that Booth and Brennan’s living situation will be made abundantly clear in the show’s first episode back. What’s more, she knows the sex but isn’t clear on the name and jokingly referred to the baby by the famous androgynous fictional SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE character, “Pat,” when asked what name she’d give the baby if given the choice!
BONES scoop please!!! — Melissa
The TV Addict: Are you a fan of cryptic messages that could mean practically anything? If so, you’re really going to appreciate the incredibly ambiguous tease that creator Hart Hanson gave us as he held court amidst a gaggle of reporters during the recent Fox TCA Party, “The first scene shot is going to amaze people, the show looks different.” Read into that what you will.
Although much has been made about Sarah’s personal life when it comes to the new season of PARENTHOOD, very little has been discussed with regards to her professional one. Is it safe to assume that her career as a writer will continue? — Raquel
The TV Addict: While it is in fact safe to assume that Sarah’s success as a scribe will continue… it will do so at a glacial pace. According to Lauren Graham during a recent one-on-one with the TV Addict. “I’m interested in kind of the process and seeing Sarah grow but because it’s an artistic thing it shouldn’t have any giant leaps and bounds.”
Literally cannot wait for the return of PARKS AND RECREATION, any scoop? — Michael
The TV Addict: Assuming of course you’re a fan of Rob Lowe’s character Chris, prepare for your jaw to quite literally (see how we did that) hit the floor. Why you ask? Well, in a nutshell, Chris Traeger is about to make his ideal love connection. Now, where the shocking part comes in is said aforementioned connection will be made by none other than the soon-to-be introduced daughter of a government worker we’ve come to know and love.
Any hint as to who April might lose her virginity to on GREY’S ANATOMY this season? — Amy
The TV Addict: Funnily enough, we posed that very question to April’s portrayer, the delightful Sarah Drew at ABC’s recent TCA Cocktail Party. And while she was, not surprisingly thank-you-very-much spoiler Nazi Shonda Rhimes, incredibly tight-lipped on who, when and even if it will even happen this season, the glowing mother-to-be did let us in on one little secret: Just who she’d like to see April lose it to! “It would be interesting to have the bad boy Alex and the good girl April and kind of see how that worked out,” admitted Sarah Drew after jokingly pointing out how awkward it was to talk about this very touchy subject matter with her real-life husband sitting right next to her. “But at the same time I would kind of find that hard to believe. I think April needs to find someone who has a similar kind of mentality and outlook on life. Although it would probably make for an interesting storyline, total opposites finding their way to one another, but I don’t know.”
