Making a return visit to Fan Expo Canada this year are Adam West and Burt Ward the former
stars of the small screen’s BATMAN series. Both men are on hand to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Batman comic book. Fan Expo Canada is taking place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre, and runs from August 28 until August 31. The camp action-adventure TV show originally ran from 1966 until 1968 but can still be seen in reruns ensuring that the infamous dialogue like “Holly macaroni!” and “To the Batcave!” will always resonate with older and younger fans who can embrace and appreciate the comedic side of the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder. West and Ward did a Q&A with their fans at the event and talked about the show’s villains, celebrity cameos and the upcoming LEGO Batman video game. [Read more...]

MASTERS OF SEX! BIG BROTHER! THE LEFTOVERS! GENERAL HOSPITAL! The TV Addict Week in Rewind

Annaleigh Ashford masters of sex

Most Needed Integration: Just when we were thinking that MASTERS OF SEX’s Betty — played by the awesome Annaleigh Ashford — had become completely disconnected from the main story, she landed a job as Masters and Johnson’s secretary!

Scariest Performance: Billy Magnussen was downright terrifying as alter ego Eric went on a killing spree in the finale of the underappreciated WE series THE DIVIDE.

Most Needed Break: The wildly bleak THE LEFTOVERS gave us an episode in which all of the characters were happy — relatively speaking — until the final moments.

Best Match: After being dissed by the various women he asked out on a date, BACHELOR IN PARADISE’s Kalon proved to be both a loser and loner by taking himself out on the town. “Welcome to the first one on none date,” he told cameras.

Most Efficient Use Of Time: When not shooting his literal partner-in-crime or being harangued by the ladies he’d kidnapped, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Levi found time to dash out to a Supercuts and ditch his long, flowing locks for a stylish new ’do!

Smartest Decision: Viewers voted not to reward BIG BROTHER’s Team America for the lame play they put on as part of a self-created challenge. “We decided to do something very entertaining,” said mastermind Frankie, proving not to understand the meaning of that word. [Read more...]

YOUNG & HUNGRY Scoop: Star Jonathan Sadowski Spills on the Upcoming Wedding & Foods That He Craves

jonathan sadowski young & hungry

ABC Family’s new comedy series YOUNG & HUNGRY offers top-notch comedy surrounding the antics of a young woman who convinces an upcoming billionaire to take her on as his personal chef. It is the makings of a classic rom-com with one big difference, the show leans a bit more towards the comedy side with a strong ensemble made up of veteran comedians, including Jonathan Sadowski, Emily Osmemt, Rex Lee, Kym Whitley, and Aimee Carrero.

All are relatively young to have such strong comedy chops, but every scene with them in it is just flawlessly funny. The best scenes are with the entire cast, but even when they play off each other in pairs, it still tickles the funny bone and makes your ribs ache from laughing. That is not to say there is not a health dose of romance too. It is just a bit more subtly woven amongst the bigger comedic moments.

Yet this week’s summer finale for YOUNG & HUNGRY will be employing both the rom-com elements to fine form as the clock ticks down on Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) and Caroline’s (Mallory Jansen) wedding and whether Gabi (Emily Osment), Elliot (Rex Lee) or Yolanda (Kim Whitley) can just stand by and watch it happen all knowing that perhaps Josh is over-looking the one person who may really be the one his heart wants.

In a recent press conference call, star Jonathan Sadowski happily shared some insights into the comedic gold that keeps this cast on their toes and teased the upcoming wedding episode. [Read more...]
