After the jump, Brett Ratner is a jack-ass, FOX has turned into the Seth MacFarlane Network and we take a look back at the loss of another great show. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Anyone Can Happen

eliza-dushku-dichen-lachman-01After a week hiatus, I’m back! Hopefully Steve’s Entertainment Link-Off wasn’t too painful to read. This week, let’s shift the focus back onto entertainment related topics only. Yesterday marked the return of Dollhouse on FOX. After seeing Epitaph One, I was totally pumped for the season premiere. I wasn’t expecting the show to return due to its anemic ratings, but sometimes TV miracles can happen (hurray for budget cuts). If you aren’t watching the show… what’s wrong with you? Dichen Lachman and Eliza Duskhu (pictured) should be good enough reasons to tune in.

After the jump there’s some comic book movies stuff, CW’s neverending cycle of suckage and get your Glee on with ‘Single Ladies’. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Past, Present, Future

rachel mcadamsAfter a slight delay (again), this week’s edition of the Entertainment Link-Off is finally here! This weekend marks the release of the highly anticipated film adaptation of the novel The Time Traveler’s Wife, hence I’m using Rachel McAdams to kick off this entry. The film was scheduled to be released last fall, but thanks to Star Trek (which is a fantastic film by the way) requiring Eric Bana to shave his head for the role Nero, the reshoots for The Time Traveler’s Wife couldn’t take place until he grew his hair back. So how was the movie? Did it remain faithful to the novel? Find out later when I post the movie review. In the meantime, let’s take a look at the happenings in film, TV and whatnot.

After the jump some Time Traveler’s Wife stuff, notes about upcoming films, Megan Fox talks about peer pressure and we find out what G.I. Joes do during their free time. Continue reading

Comic-Con 2009: Friday Roundup

While the WB panel was busy promoting their latest batch of films on Friday, two other sci-fi TV shows took snagged a lot of attention. Cult-favourite Dollhouse wowed fans with the airing of Epitaph One + Q&A, while ABC’s Flash Forward officially welcomed a new addition to their cast. Continue reading

FOX Announces Primetime Schedule for 2009/2010 Season

glee 1 “Don’t stop believing!” I got that song stuck in my head and it’s on full rotation ever since I watched the extended trailer for the new FOX show “Glee” (the sneak preview airs tomorrow night after American Idol). This is one of the new shows on the FOX 2009/2010 schedule. So does FOX’s schedule look any good? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Good News, Bad News

minka kelly 3The television networks are preparing to announce their fall schedules next week. Headlining this article is Minka Kelly. The soon to be former Friday Night Lights star is set to play the lead in the new CW pilot Body Politic. Unfortunately the pilot is being overshadowed by Twilight: The Series Vampire Diaries, recycled material Melrose Place 2.0 and a scripted version of America’s Next Top Model Beautiful Life. So here I am doing another plug in hopes of generating more attention to a potentially good show, unlike the other stuff that the CW has to offer. I want the show to make it into the fall schedule because it has a great cast and it has a storyline that doesn’t involve a bunch of rich spoiled teens (also the inner VM/FNL fan is also yearning to see this)! While Body Politic isn’t generating enough buzz, the good news is that it appears people are starting to warm up to it. However, the bad news is that the CW usually makes the wrong decisions and are too stupid to realize it until it’s too late (in this case, pick up Vampire Diaries, Beautiful Life and Melrose Place 2.o instead).

After the jump… some good news… and bad news… Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: The Boobtube Busts

hayden-panettiere-star-trek-01Did anyone check out the series* finale of Scrubs on Wednesday night? It was such a brilliant episode! Definitely one of the best series finales ever… assuming ABC does not extend the show for a 9th season out of desperation. Anyway, headlining the article today is Hayden Panettiere doing the Vulcan hand sign. No, she’s not in the latest Star Trek flick (that was released Thursday night), but she did appear at the premiere. The film currently sits at 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Perhaps J.J. Abrams did manage to revive the franchise that was declared dead after the disastrous 10th flick Star Trek: Nemesis.

Let’s start off with a very random entertainment news. Apparently Chuck Norris can still kick ass… even if it’s just a cardboard version of him! (Olivia Munn)

After the jump, some movie news, a tiny bit on new music and the end of network television! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Welcome to the Dollhouse

dichen-lachman-1Since Eliza Dushku has been featured in an earlier edition of the weekend link-off, I thought I would let her Dollhouse costar Dichen Lachman headline this post. The season finale of Dollhouse airs next Friday at 9 pm on FOX (since the network decided not to air the 13th episode titled Epitaph One). While this show has little to no chance of returning next season, perhaps an uptick in viewers for the finale might help change FOX’s mind.

I know this is an “entertainment link-off”, but this first article is too good to pass up. A new Viagra rival is actually an ointment that can be rubbed onto the skin. [Insert ‘rubbing to turn something on’ joke here]. Apparently this product can lead to quicker hard-ons compared to Viagra. I guess this could generate some entertaining results. [Daily Telegraph]

After the break, Dollhouse, Chuck, some music news and the latest Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

save-chuck Be a nerd. Join the herd. Save Chuck! The second season finale of Chuck airs on Monday at 8pm on NBC (CityTV if you’re in Canada). Don’t forget to tune in if you want the show to have a shot at a third season! If you missed the majority of the second season, don’t worry, you can catch up by clicking this. In addition to watching the finale on Monday night, don’t forget to take part in the Save Chuck Campaign. The recent rumours about a Chuck renewal aren’t true, so we must push forward to prevent Ben Silverman from making the biggest mistake of his life by cancelling this series. While most “save our show” campaigns are useless, this one might be more effective. Have faith fellow Nerd Herders. Viva Buymoria!

After the jump, more articles on movies, video games, video games turned into movies (or not) and a hilarious Chuck fanvid. Continue reading
