TV Fanatic Staff Round Table: The Best Show of 2011

31 December 2011 6:15 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We've reached the conclusion of our end-of-the-year Round Table discussions. To wrap up 2011, the TV Fanatic staff so far has debated the following categories:

The Best New Show of the Year The Breakout Star of the Year The Best Villain of the Year The Funniest Show of the Year The Best Couple of the Year The Worst Show of the Year The Hero of the Year

So how could we flip the calendar without first asking: What Was The Best Show Of 2011?

Matt Richenthal: Homeland actually made me think twice, but there's no answer other than Breaking Bad. The best acting, the tightest storytelling, the most riveting main character on television. Brilliant in all levels.

Dan Forcella: Every single episode of Justified that aired in 2011 was thrilling, emotional, and made the viewer think. With a superior leading performance by Timothy Olyphant, and stunning supporting work from Margo Martindale, Walton Goggins and Jeremy Davies, »

DVD Review: Burn Notice – Season 4

30 December 2011 8:07 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Burn Notice: Season 4

Stars: Jeffrey Donovan, Bruce Campbell, Gabrielle Anwar, Sharon Gless | Directed by Paul Holahan, Kevin Bray, Colin Bucksey, Rod Hardy

As a newcomer to the Burn Notice series it may have been strange to start at season four but sometimes it’s a good way to start on shows like this. It allows people to see if it’s easy to get into and not too complicated, and also gives you a chance to start watching when a show should be in its stride and be confident in telling an enjoyable storyline with well-established characters.

Season four of Burn Notice starts off with Michael (the main character of the show) trying to uncover who helped some guy called Simon to escape at the end of season three. This is all you need to know really as in the first episode the action hits the ground running. From »

TV Fanatic Staff Round Table: The Most Heroic Character of 2011

28 December 2011 6:45 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We've already covered the most villainous TV characters of 2011. Now, it's time to debate their sworn enemies.

In the latest edition of an end-of-the-year Round Table discussion, TV Fanatic staff members were asked to weigh in on their favorite fictional protagonist of the past 12 months, along with the reason why they found him or her so inspiring. Read their responses below and then cast a vote on the following question:

Who Was The Most Heroic Character Of 2011?

Matt Richenthal: Clark Kent. The guy turned into Superman this year on Smallville.

Carissa Pavlica: Oh geez. This is where all the Fringe fans think I don't absolutely adore Olivia Dunham (which I do), because I'm going to say Peter Bishop. He gave his life to try to save everyone he loves in two universes. He had no idea what the outcome might be, only that it must be done. That spells hero to me! »

Bruce "The Chin" Campbell Is Back In Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great And Powerful

19 December 2011 9:22 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Matt of theshiznit.co.uk interviewed Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) recently and got the exclusive that "The Chin" is back in Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful. Last month Bruce Campbell delivered the sad news through twitter when he tweeted, "My scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. Onto the next adventure!" Looks like whatever the issue was that caused the scene to be cut has been resolved and the longtime friends, Bruce and Sam can work together again. Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have collaborated on the Evil Dead trilogy, and Bruce made cameos in all three of Sam's Spider-Man movies. "The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and the professionalism and »

'NCIS' actor David Fisher: Battery charges dropped

17 December 2011 12:08 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Back in September, "NCIS" and "Burn Notice" actor David Dayan Fisher was locked up after allegedly choking a neighbor who hung swim towels on Fisher's fence. He was booked on felony battery charges.

Now, the charges have been dropped. Fisher struck a deal with prosecutors. He plead guilty to a much more minor disturbing the peace charge and was sentenced to pay a $50 fine -- but even that was written off by the judge.

"I was set on by a bully who asked for trouble and lost his fight. He then goes running to the teacher and spins his lies. This is the case," Fisher tells TMZ about the violent altercation. "I have not punched someone since I was at school. That was 27 years ago. This seems to be an instant karmic justice for a bully." »

Shocking Surrender on 'Burn Notice' Finale

15 December 2011 11:50 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

For weeks now, Michael has been doing everything in his power to protect Fiona from Anson. It's caused him to compromise a lot, even crossing lines that he might not have otherwise crossed. All because Anson used this leverage he had over Fiona to force Michael to do his bidding. On the "Burn Notice" (Thu., 10Pm Et on USA) season finale, Fiona finally took control of the situation in the only way she knew how.

Well, more specifically, the only way she saw left to her after Michael stepped between her sniper sight and Anson's head. So she turned herself in for murder. It was because of incriminating evidence against her that Anson had this power in the first place, and so by sacrificing herself, she freed Michael.

"You do what's right, no matter the cost to you," she wrote him in a letter. "And I've learned that when you love a spy, »

'Burn Notice': Gabrielle Anwar on finale cliff-hanger, what's next for Fiona

15 December 2011 8:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If you haven’t seen the season 5 finale of Burn Notice yet, be warned: There are spoilers ahead.

On tonight’s Burn Notice season finale, the question that has dominated the back half of the season was finally answered, for better or for worse. For weeks, evil mastermind Anson has been holding Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) by his throat, threatening to turn evidence over to the authorities that would incriminate Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) for murder. With Anson’s demands becoming too much to bear and with no solution in sight, Fiona did the only thing she could: Surrendered herself to authorities. »

'Burn Notice' - 'Fail Safe': The things we do for love

15 December 2011 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Burn Notice" just wrapped up its fifth season, and I have some thoughts on the finale and the current state of the show coming up just as soon as I'm smarter than a keypad... I'll be honest: since the show returned from its fall break in November, some of the episodes have sat on my DVR for a good long while, and I ultimately wound up skipping the last one or two (I definitely missed Vaughn's return) just so I could watch the finale in time to write it up. The way "Burn Notice" is structured, I reasoned that the "previously »

'Burn Notice' Explosive Season Finale: What's Next?

15 December 2011 3:13 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Get ready "Burn Notice" fans, because the Season 5 finale promises to leave you on the edge of your seat with a major cliffhanger. While most of the attention will be on Michael Weston, his relationship with Fiona and his attempts to break free of his adversary Anson's control, let's not forget about all of the other members of Weston's team, particularly Sam Axe and Jesse Porter.

"At one point they were giving Jesse all of Michael Weston's storylines, so that was intense," Coby Bell, who plays Jesse, told The Huffington Post via phone. Throughout the latter half of Season 5, rough-around-the-edges Jesse served the purpose of allowing Michael to be in two places at once, trusting him to be his eyes and ears on the ground. "I was happy that they lightened Jesse up this season, which is where I'm more comfortable, having done comedy. He's finally gotten comfortable with his new Miami life, »

Writer Roundup: Craig O’Neill Rewriting Count Of Monte Cristo, Mark Bomback Adapting Racing In The Rain, Leah Rachel Is Young, Hot And Bothered

15 December 2011 2:14 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve got a trio of screenwriter stories to bring to you today. First up, Burn Notice co-executive producer Craig O’Neill is making his first foray into feature films. Deadline reports that O’Neill has been set to rewrite Warner Bros.’ remake of The Count of Monte Cristo. Based on the classic revenge novel by Alexandre Dumas, the film is titled Cristo and is “a futuristic re-imagining” of the tale. The project was first set up based on a spec script by Ian Shorr, and now it looks like WB is looking to have O’Neill take a pass at the screenplay. Dumas’ story is fantastic, but it’s quite dense and tough to fit into one feature film. I’m interested in hearing what this “futuristic re-imagining” entails and how far it veers from the source material. With an adaptation like this, I’m hoping the script just maintains the basic plot, »

'Burn Notice': Jeffrey Donovan and Gabrielle Anwar play the newlywed game -- Exclusive Video

15 December 2011 1:19 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Jeffrey Donovan and Gabrielle Anwar play Miami’s toughest couple on screen, but how well do they really know each other? Recently, the Burn Notice stars stopped by EW.com to talk about tonight’s season 5 finale and we put their knowledge to the test.

Check out how they did in the video below. 

As you can see, they could both use a refresher course on their costar. We’ll give them credit for their superhero answers since “close enough” counts with horseshoes, hand grenades and EW Pop Culture Personality Quizzes. Still, their alter-egos, super-spy Michael Westen and chic mercenary Fiona Glenanne, »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Bruce Campbell

15 December 2011 1:07 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"This is my boomstick!" Bruce Campbell was already a full-fledged horror icon before reciting that unforgettable line from Army of Darkness, but this put the cherry on top. "Boomstick" was Campbell's "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", his "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", his "Stairway to Heaven".

Here at Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel column, we're used to paying tribute to the real baddies of horror. The nastier character you portrayed, the more love you'll get here. Campbell is the rare Scalpel honoree who's recognized for his portrayal of a hero. Throughout his illustrious career Campbell has appeared in dozens of movies and television shows, but it's one character in particular that we all fell in love with that earned Campbell his Tip of the Scalpel nod. I'm talking, of course, of Ashley J. "Ash" Williams.

Campbell and The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi met in high school, and »
