I was a big fan of ABC‘s Zero Hour when I previewed the pilot last summer, and was disappointed that they were holding it until midseason. When they finally did air it, they had made a few changes with a few scenes, but it was still the cool Indiana Jones-feeling, Nazi hating, twisty fun mysterious show I remembered, complete with creepy baby.
Of course I was horribly disappointed when ABC canceled the series after airing just three episodes, but over-the-moon happy when they announced that they would air all 13 episodes this summer.
Well that happy day is now finally nearly upon us, as Zero Hour returns Saturday at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere. But… it isn’t the pilot. In fact, they are picking up where they left off, and will be airing episodes four and five on Saturday. If you didn’t see the first three episodes when »

Prison Break, Season 1, “Pilot”
Directed by Brett Ratner
Written by Paul Scheuring
Originally aired: August 29, 2005
This is a grand age of serialized TV drama where networks don’t shy away from airing shows with complex arcs. There’s a downside to this extended story line, however. Creators may plan out multiple seasons for their characters, but they slow the pace down to a crawl. The episodes feel their length, and the audience is just waiting for the rare moments when something happens. Glacially paced series like Flash Forward and The Killing had a good start but became nearly unbearable by mid-season. Thankfully, there are amazing shows that dive into the action like every episode is their last. Even long-running classic shows like Battlestar Galactica and Lost didn’t waste any time and delivered remarkable drama from the start. Another intriguing example is Prison Break, which premiered on Fox on August »

We're a nostalgic bunch, aren't we? I'm speaking of movie geeks in general, but I suppose, more specifically, those of us who were around decades ago to worship action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone when they were in their prime. Predator. Rambo. The Terminator. Cliffhanger. Total Racall. Rocky - not action, ok, but still tough-guy Stallone so it counts - and much more recently, The Expendables. And because, why not? Over the Top and Kindergarten Cop. With those films in mind, Escape Plan has its own nostalgic draw, taking two iconic action stars and setting them up in a Prison Break-like scenario. Above is the new poster for the film, which shows stars Schwarzenegger and Stallone in separate cells, their backs to one another while they're locked up in "the most secure prison ever built," where "no one breaks out alone."

The Oscar-winning acting icons had been in different portions of "The Godfather Part II" -- which Fichtner cites as one of his favorite films -- but they shared space and dialogue in "Heat," writer-director Michael Mann's widely praised 1995 crime drama.
Fichtner was just starting a screen career that would come to include "The Perfect Storm," "Armageddon" and this summer's "The Lone Ranger" and "Elysium" ... but he has strong memories of being in "Heat" as a traitor tracked down by a vengeful career crook (De Niro).
"I had done a handful of movies, if that," he tells Zap2it, "and it wasn't lost on me that this was Pacino and De Niro's first time on screen together. What I remember about reading the script was »
