Editor's note: I wanted to take a moment to thank Jane for taking the time to share her thoughts with us over the past two and a half months. Jane is incredibly busy and we were very flattered when she agreed to write this column to give our readers an inside take on each episode of Torchwood. Thanks, Jane! We can't wait to see what you do you with Once Upon a Time!
I got an email from Russell today, in which he said, "Did I ever think I’d see the credit Jane Espenson & Russell T. Davies on screen?! No, I never, ever, ever did." Well, I never, ever, ever did either. It's a thrill, I'll tell you!
I will also tell you that this episode was actually written by Russell. What I did was write a first draft that got the scenes of his story down on the »
Those idiot looters wasted their time. There's more money in stealing pets than TVs
Oh, I see. I was hoping that The Pet Detectives (Channel 4) was going to be about animals who solve crimes – Hercule Parrot, Inspector Mouse, you can almost certainly come up with better ones. But The Pet Detectives are actually retired policemen who try to solve crimes against animals. Kidnap mostly, occasionally murder.
We start off at a press conference in Cornwall. John Haywood, Britain's number one investigator of exotic pet theft, is appealing for any information about a cruel and callous crime. Twenty one budgerigars have gone missing, three were left dead. The timing – the night before the Cornwall Budgerigar Show – may not be a coincidence. Now the owner needs closure; we all need closure. "It's like kidnapping a baby," says John, who, like Morse, drives a Jaguar.
Apparently there's now more money in stealing »

Well, Chuck wasn't too happy about Blair's little engagement, was he? It's not like Gossip Girl's resident bad boy hasn't had tough times before, but he really seems to be spiralling out of control now. It probably doesn't help that Jack's back in town in the next episode! Chuck's even fighting with Nate - physically. Also in the episode, Blair's still torn between (more) »

If you're one of the few who enjoyed Fox's Running Wilde sitcom then there's some good news for you. No, the show hasn't been un-cancelled and renewed for a second season but viewers will have a chance to see the four remaining unaired episodes.
An FX spokesperson confirmed to the Futon Critic that the cable channel will air the quartet of Running Wilde episodes over the next four Thursdays at 10pm.
Two episodes -- "Jack's Back" (episode 10) and "One Step Forward" (a rerun of episode nine) -- will air on April 28th. "Alienated" (episode 11) will run on May 5th, "The Pre-Nup" (episodes 12) can be seen on May 12th, and the series finale -- "Basket Cases" (episode 13) -- will be broadcast on May 19th.
Good news, Jack Bauer fans: the clock is very much still ticking.
"24" enthusiasts have been waiting on the edge of their seats waiting for the Kiefer Sutherland-starring real-time thriller to make its much heralded debut on the big-screen, and now, we've got a time table courtesy of producer Brian Grazer. "Got off the phone Keifer yesterday and we are very excited about producing the 24 movie for next year," Grazer informed his Twitter followers, indicating that the "24" movie is very much on track.
But despite Grazer's assurances, there are several questions we don't know the answer to — like the ones we're asking about past the jump!
The Time Table
Both Kiefer and Grazer are on the record saying that the "24" movie is happening next year, but what exactly does that mean? Will shooting start in 2012 with a release date some time in 2013, or are they actually aiming for release in 2012? If that's the target, »

Tremors? Nightbreed? Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat? 976-evil? Are all on the list this year. And though there were not huge horror wins in sound editing through screenplays, the Technical Awards never cease to bring out the horror veterans. Notably Tim Drnec who contributed to such VHS classics as Alien Seed, Destroyer, and Prison won for his work on “Spydercam 3D volumetric suspended cable camera technologies.” An award also shared with Ben Britten Smith and Matt Davis who both also worked on Constantine.
But among all the winners, the Academy also honored some great loses in 2010. And though they mentioned some of our heroes, Dennis Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Dino de Laurentiis (King Kong), they did not mention Zelda Rubinstein or Corey Haim. But we will in this last section and the others lost to us last year.
So farewell fight fans and remember, »
