UPDATE: An interesting article on the demise of politically based dramas including CW’s “Body Politic”. The executive producers are currently shopping the show around. Perhaps a “Save Body Politic” campaign should begin eh? (New York Times)
Welcome to another edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. Headlining this article is Jessica Stroup. You may recognize her as Silver on the CW’s 90210. The show is horrendous, but I still tune in and it’s all because of her. She also had a multi-episode stint during the first season of Reaper (one of the few good shows on the CW). See, the show has its fair share of eye candy. It’s also quite funny… definitely worth checking out! While the CW decided to bury Reaper alive during the May upfronts, the show is still on hanging on through “life support” (I’m looking at you ABC Studios and whatever cable network they’re pitching it to now). For the latest updates and to find out how you can keep the show alive, click here.
After the jump lots of TV tidbits, a bit on movies, new artists alert and a Jessica Stroup picspam! Continue reading →
Sorry, I forgot to warn you guys that the Entertainment Link-Off was cancelled last week due to volunteer commitments. Yes, I do volunteer work. Steve likes to say that I’m a great humanitarian. Anyway, Entertainment Link-Off is back this week in full force. Headlining this article is Jenny Wade. You may recognize her as Honey Pie from the “Feast” movies or as the demon with a heart Nina on “Reaper”. She is also part of the cast of the only awesome CW pilot, “Body Politic”. I had lots of trouble finding pictures of her since she’s isn’t exactly well known around the net. You guys should definitely tune into “Reaper” if you want to check out how hot she is. This picture does not do any justice.
After the jump, more on the defunct CW, movie updates, the possible revival of Firefly and the preview for Body Politic (in case you missed it).

The 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 →
