'Dallas' Season 3, episode 5 - 'D.T.R.': Bobby and Sue Ellen make their move against John Ross

24 March 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The honeymoon has ended for John Ross, in more ways than one.

"D.T.R.," Monday's (March 24) episode of TNT's "Dallas," opened with the newlywed Ewing (Josh Henderson) landing back home with wife Pamela (Julie Gionzalo). They immediately turned their thoughts back to business, with her wondering how his deal to acquire desired ships was going. His stalling on the answer led her to suggest she'd ask Emma (Emma Bell), but he coaxed her out of it as they got frisky in the back of their limo.

Upon returning to Southfork, John Ross checked on the temporarily stalled drilling, then threatened foreman Bo (Donny Boaz) with bringing in a replacement crew if the workers couldn't get back to business that night. A concerned Bobby (Patrick Duffy) watched from a distance, John Ross waving mock-cheerfully upon spotting him.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed her brief in the marriage equality case in the state yesterday, and she didn’t hold back. “The state defendants in this case recognize that the ban on same-sex marriage serves no rational purpose and harms Oregon citizens. This case presents that rare case in which there simply is no legal argument to be made in support of a state law.” Rosenblum is one of many state AGs who have announced they won’t defend their state’s marriage ban.

As Glee prepares for their 100th episode, they’re saying goodbye to Lima – for now. And the creative team is looking forward to telling more grownup stories for the adults of the cast, especially Kurt and Blaine. Executive Producer Brad Falchuk says he likes “seeing that relationship get tested and strengthened and sort of the adult version of those characters having real conversations about stuff and really making adult choices. They’re really having fun together.”

'Dallas' Season 3, episode 4: 'Lifting the Veil' on a bride ... and on other matters

17 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There's nothing like a Ewing-family wedding to lure familiar faces back to Southfork Ranch.

Such guests were present in "Lifting the Veil," Monday's (March 17) episode of TNT's "Dallas" update. The occasion was the official nuptials of the already eloped John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Pamela (Julie Gonzalo), but complications arose right from the start of the big day, as John Ross' secretary Candice (Jude Demorest) summoned him to a long-sought meeting about the fracking permit he wanted.

"I've gotta take another raincheck," he told the romantically inclined Pamela, but he promised he'd be back in plenty of time for the ceremony. Her worried look indicated she didn't completely buy it.

Sue Ellen confirmed to Ann that John Ross was dallying with Emma ... "and we have got to do something about it." To that end, Sue Ellen wanted Emma to leave Southfork, but Ann feared that might make the drug cartel suspicious. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘We’ll Never Have Paris’

13 March 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The story may have been ripped from personal experience, but moments of truth — or, for that matter, hilarity — are few and far between in “We’ll Never Have Paris,” a sporadically amusing, more often grating romantic comedy based on the relationship of husband-and-wife directing duo Simon Helberg (“Big Bang Theory”) and Jocelyn Towne. With Helberg (who wrote the script) cast as a hopelessly neurotic, hopefully somewhat fictionalized version of himself, struggling to win back the girlfriend (Melanie Lynskey) he carelessly tossed aside, the film means to critique its hero’s narcissism but winds up feeling more like a monument to it. Helberg fans who have always wanted to see him in a feature-length sitcom, rejoice; others need not apply, though this slickly packaged affair does seem destined to please some theatrical crowds en route to home-format exposure.

Patrick Duffy recalls an old 'Dallas' line that tops this week's Lesser Prairie Chicken twist, teases what's ahead

10 March 2014 9:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! This week’s episode of Dallas saw John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) each take bold steps in their battle over fracking at Southfork. In the end, even though John Ross had convinced the ranch hands that more money could be made in oil than cattle, Bobby managed to put a hold on John Ross’s drilling permit by informing the Sierra Club of a potentially endangered population of Lesser Prairie Chicken.

Asked how many takes it took him to get “Lesser Prairie Chicken” out, Duffy just laughs. “Once, in the old Dallas, we had the phrase, »

'Dallas' Season 3, episode 3: Many Ewings do much 'Playing Chicken'

10 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The scheming is reaching a fever pitch at and around Southfork Ranch.

Bountiful proof was supplied by Monday's (March 10) episode of TNT's "Dallas," "Playing Chicken." After their meeting at which Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi) was revealed to be working secretly with the CIA, Ann (Brenda Strong) told Bobby (Patrick Duffy) she feared for Emma's (Emma Bell) safety. He promised that the women would "always be safe on Southfork. You can count on that."

Others might not be, though: Greed-accusing graffiti indicated an uprising by workers on the ranch over the planned fracking of the land by John Ross (Josh Henderson), who was drawn into a fight by foreman Bo (Donny Boaz). Bobby broke it up by declaring, "Southfork is a cattle ranch, not an oil field, and I intend to keep it that way. Nobody is losing their jobs."

Fox cancels 'Raising Hope,' sets series finale for April

10 March 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Given its consistently low ratings, it's somewhat astounding that "Raising Hope" managed to get four often terrific seasons on Fox.  It's still sad to report that "Raising Hope" will have its series finale on Friday, April 4 with an hour-long send-off. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and 'Raising Hope's' amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," blurbs executive producer Mike Mariano, who took over as showrunner for Garcia this season. "We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication." Often aired in erratic patterns with lengthy hiatuses, doubled-up episodes and early finales, "Raising Hope" will still hit 88 episodes by its finale.

Send questions and comments to and follow me on Twitter!

Question: There have been quite a few resurrections from the TV graveyard as of late and I must say I love it, way more than Hollywood's obsession of making a sequel out of everything as well as making too-soon remakes. Firefly and Veronica Mars both have movie continuations, Dallas and Boy Meets World have spawned new series chronicling the next generation (I know you're not too big a fan of the new Dallas, but I have to say I welcome the return of Judith Light to the series), Netflix brought back Arrested Development for a fourth season, and Heroes is coming out with Heroes: Reborn next year. So I'm wondering what are your thoughts on this phenomenon, and are there any shows that you feel should be next in this craze.

SXSW Directorial Debuts To Watch: 'The Mend,' 'Before I Disappear' And 'We'll Never Have Paris'

6 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Three of the most anticipated SXSW films mark three directors’ feature film debuts, The Mend, Before I Disappear and We’ll Never Have Paris.

The Mend

The Mend, from director John Magary is featured in the Narrative Feature Competition. Only eight films were selected to premiere at SXSW, out of 1,324 submissions.

One night in Harlem, sour, aging Mat reunites with his younger brother Alan, just before Alan heads out for a long-planned vacation with his live-in girlfriend Farrah. Only days later, much sooner than expected, Alan returns home from his vacation to find his apartment commandeered by Mat, Mat’s girlfriend and Mat’s girlfriend’s son. As doors slam and the power gives out and the threads of family fray, a mystery lingers: why has Alan returned home without Farrah,” reads the official description.

The Mend, starring Josh Lucas as Mat, Stephen Plunkett as Alan, Sarah Steele, Leo Fitzpatrick and Mickey Sumner, »

PopWatch PSA: You really need to watch Judith Light snort cocaine on 'Dallas' -- Video

4 March 2014 12:51 PM, PST | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

TNT’s Dallas is gunning for more watercooler moments in its third season, and scene-stealer Judith Light, who recurs as sharp-tongued matriarch Judith Ryland, certainly provided one in Monday’s episode (read our full recap). You’re going to want to watch it below.

The backstory for those who haven’t been tuning in: Judith Ryland made her triumphant return in the hour after her son, Harris (Mitch Pileggi) — the bastard ex-husband of Bobby Ewing’s wife Ann, with whom Harris shares a conniving daughter — pushed her down the stairs and locked her away in a “rehab” facility in season »

'Dallas' Season 3, episode 2 -- 'Trust Me': Ryland's mother plays tough with drug cartel

3 March 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

You might be able to pull the wool over some people's eyes, but you can't fool your mama.

Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) proved that at the start of "Trust Me," Monday's (March 2) new episode of TNT's "Dallas." She hired her late husband J.R's right-hand man, Bum (Kevin Page), to conduct surveillance on her son John Ross (Josn Henderson) ... convinced he was cheating on new wife Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo) with Emma (Emma Bell).

Back at the Ryland family home, Emma was surprised to see her father Harris (Mitch Pilleggi) out of prison. He wasted no time accusing her of stealing his files and setting up his incarceration, then warned he would have to return her to "a secure, therapeutic setting" -- ostensibly to keep her safe, but really to prevent her from trying to assume his corporate power again.

Emma cautioned John Ross that meant an end to the deal »
