105193_WB_D1395b

Full disclosure: We would have had these first look photos from THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Monday September 22nd season premiere posted earlier, but we spent the better part of the past forty-five minutes debating what we wanted to title this post. Candidates included “We Need to Talk About Penny,” “Sheldon Cooper Cell Phone Hack Exposed” and/or “Penny and Leonard Plus Eight” See why below when you check out some first look photos from “The Locomotion Interruption” that has Leonard and Amy take a road trip to Arizona to pick up Sheldon, Penny interview for a job at Bernadette’s company while Wolowitz gets weirded out by Stuart’s relationship with Mrs. Wolowitz.

We Shine the Spotlight on THE BIG BANG THEORY Star Kunal Nayyar

Given the stratospheric rise of CBS’ comedy series THE BIG BANG THEORY, it is no wonder the co-star KUNAL Nayyar feels a bit struck by lightening.  Life is good when you are king and working on a hit TV series like BIG BANG THEORY is enough to make any actor feel blessed and grateful that television audiences have embraced it so warmly.  In a recent press interview at the WB Mondo International Press Tour, Kunal candidly shared what life is like for him and what he thinks of the show’s hot success.

Photo of the Day: Will the Real Howard Wolowitz Please Stand Up!

With television talent both in front and behind the camera making a habit of tweeting photos ranging from spoilerific to hilarious, theTVaddict.com thought it might be fun to introduce a new feature to the site that we’ve not-so-cleverly decided to call “Photo of the Day.” Today’s subject, courtesy of THE BIG BANG THEORY co-creator Bill Prady (@billprady) comes a photo of actor Simon Helberg and his real-life namesake Howard Wolowitz. Tweeted Prady, “For the record, the only thing my friend Howard Wolowitz shares with the character is his name. Not his personality.”

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for BONES, CASTLE, HART OF DIXIE, PARENTHOOD & More!

Care to add anything to the deluge of scoop that has recently come out about BONES upcoming eighth season premiere? — Lisa
The TV Addict: Do we ever. That said, since we aren’t prepared to spoil the circumstances surrounding Booth and Brennan’s very satisfying and surprisingly physical (!) reunion, we’ll simply say this: Not only do creator Hart Hanson and Co. outdo themselves with an immensely satisfying season opener that leaves a surprisingly large threat over the Jeffersonian looming, Hodgins gets to show a side of himself that will have fans buzzing even moreso than whether or not Brennan decides to keep her blond locks!

Will those of us who have been anxiously waiting four seasons for Castle and Beckett to succumb to their mutual attraction be happy with the the show’s fifth season opener? — Jennifer
The TV Addict: CASTLE fans will be pleased to discover that happy doesn’t begin to describe our feeling while watching the fifth season opener (Grinning ear to ear just might!). Playing to the show’s strengths, creator Andrew Marlowe and his writing staff do a magnificent job of juggling the aftermath of Castle and Beckett’s steamy night of passion with the weighty and emotional subject matter surrounding the truth Beckett’s mom’s demise. Suffice it to say, when fans aren’t busy giggling over Castle and Beckett’s attempt to keep their rendezvous a secret (Seriously, the cold open is priceless), they’ll be on the edge of their seat as the crime-fighting duo race to beat Cole Maddox from… well, something we’re not about to spoil here. Oh, and while we’re on the subject of gushing about CASTLE, in this current television landscape littered with awesome-butt-kicking-take-no-prisoners heroines, Stana Katic’s Kate Beckett doesn’t get the credit she deserves. Or at least that’s what fans will be tweeting following her climactic confrontation with one of the show’s special guest stars. [Read more...]

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for FALLING SKIES, HART OF DIXIE, DEXTER, NIKITA, PARENTHOOD, ARROW & More!

FALLING SKIES second season finale is this Sunday. Any idea how it ends? — Jason
The TV Addict: Boy do we ever! Unfortunately, to reveal the seriously cool scene on which the spectacular second season ends would probably not be in our best interest of a website proprietor who very much welcomes TNT’s penchant for dropping off screeners at our door! Thus, we’ll simply say this: Not only will FALLING SKIES cliffhanger of an ending leave fans bug-eyed by offering up a sequence of events that they’ve yet to see before, it sets up what sure as heck looks like a very interesting third season.

Despite the fact that the word “BlueBell” covers up far too much of Wilson Bethel for my liking, let me be the first to say how much I enjoyed your recent self-made promo for HART OF DIXIE. Now that you’re good and buttered up, how about a little scoop? — Skylar
The TV Addict: Would you believe that there is a serious downside to living in a small town like Bluebell? As luck would have it, everybody knows everybody’s business. Case in point, we have it on fairly good authority that one of Blue’s most notable bell’s recently spent an afternoon perusing the aisles of the local grocery store for household essentials. You know, stuff like potatoes, plums and PREGNANCY tests. Oops… we may have already said too much!

The only thing more exciting than the recent report that has John Barrowman jumping on board The CW’s ARROW would be if you could shed some light on the character he’s playing. Spill! — Jamie
The TV Addict: Since we don’t actually know who the artist formerly known as Captain Jack Harkness will be playing, we hope some irresponsible speculation will suffice. Speculation that involves a recent casting notice that found its way into our inbox for ARROW’s fifth episode of the season that has the production searching for a thirty to forty year old male named Edward who is described as the clean-shaven soldier and leader of a unit that captures Oliver. Think Christoph Waltz in Inglorious Basterds. [Read more...]
