Synopsis: A thriller that revolves around the key people at a investment bank over a 24-hour period during the early stages of the financial crisis.

To say the current economic climate is having a serious effect on all our lives would be an understatement. Most people are cutting back on every aspect of spending, whether it be luxuries or significant everyday necessities. And that’s only those that are able to do so; what about those that are unable to, having lost everything? And why? Well, we all know the answer to that: greedy bankers and businesses, governments unwilling to learn from history, and the boom generation the eventually went… erm, bust. So to give you an idea of how the world of investment »

'The Mentalist': Ep previews tonight's return of 'old Patrick Jane,' more from Red John

15 December 2011 9:52 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Patrick Jane that was thought to be gone forever is making a comeback tonight.

For The Mentalist’s midseason finale, executive producer and writer Daniel Cerone says they wanted to give fans a chance to see the Patrick Jane of the past — with a twist. “We always thought it’d be fun to see the old Patrick Jane. You know, the psychic hookster in a shiny suit, but the only real way to do that would be a flashback episode, and those types of episodes generally turn out to be disappointing.” Instead, he says, they opted to bring the old Jane into the present, »

The Mentalist Spoilers: Welcome Back Red John

9 December 2011 11:36 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Fret not, fans The Mentalist. Despite less focus on Red John this season, producer/writer Daniel Cerone is here to assure you that the mystery behind Patrick Jane's mystery will soon return to the forefront of the series.

It "will definitely ramp up toward the end of the season more than the middle part, but we do have a nice build,” Cerone tells EW. “We’ve introduced this character, Darcy, who is investigating the supposed reemergence of Red John, but the more time that she spends with Jane, the more suspicious she’s going to become of him. So that investigation into Red John is going to take many twists and turns before the end of the season.”

The Mentalist Promo: "Fugue in Red"

As previewed above, it all starts next Thursday, too. On “Fugue in Red,” Jane will lose his memory an revert to his con-man persona. The storyline »

'Supernatural's' Jim Beaver returns to 'Justified': What does this mean for Bobby?

8 December 2011 6:22 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Supernatural" fans are anxiously awaiting the show's post-holiday return on January 6 to find out whether or not Bobby actually kicked the bucket -- but it appears that Jim Beaver is already moving on.

"Just booked a new arc on 'Justified.' Could be as many as 7 episodes, maybe more. Same character as last time," Beaver tweeted on Dec. 8.

Zap2it confirms that Beaver has been booked for episode 307 and 309, with an option to expand the role in a multi-episode arc.

Beaver, who worked with "Justified" star Timothy Olyphant on "Deadwood" as well, previously appeared in the Season 2 episode "Cottonmouth." His character, Shelby, is a mine manager who narrowly escaped death after getting caught in a heist.

Beaver has appeared on many series during his run on "Supernatural," including "Breaking Bad," "The Mentalist," and a major "Harper's Island" role -- so the fact that he's working elsewhere doesn't necessarily speak to Bobby's condition on the show. »

Has The Dark Knight Rises Viral Begun With These Leaked CIA Documents?

8 December 2011 2:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

It would seem that Warner Bros. Pictures has launched its viral campaign for director Christopher Nolan‘s forthcoming bat-film, The Dark Knight Rises. Two outlets were provided with pages from a CIA bulletin, searching  for a missing Russian scientist named “Leonid Pavel.”

The mug shot in the first document appears to be Israeli actor Alon Aboutboul (Castle, Fringe, The Mentalist), who was we reported back in May was cast as “a particularly evil mad scientist” in the film. The second document appears to be a transcript with some items redacted, which shows a conversation between a militia member and the CIA Station Chief on the whereabouts of Dr. Leonid Pavel.

Could these documents be a lead-in to what transpires in the highly anticipated IMAX prologue? Who is Dr. Pavel? Could he be the man who creates Bane’s mask? Is he the man who creates the weapon that Bane uses »

Morena Baccarin has dropped hints about her upcoming return to The Mentalist. The actress first played the murderous Erica Flynn in April 2011 episode, 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn'. "She was apprehended and going to go to trial," Baccarin told TVLine. "But you don't know if she actually made it to prison. After all, she covered her tracks pretty well, and nobody could really prove anything." Baccarin, who currently appears in Showtime's hit drama Homeland, went on to describe Flynn's reunion with Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) as (more) »

DVD Review: ‘The Office: Special Edition’ (10th Anniversary)

7 December 2011 11:41 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

For most American viewers, The Office is all about Michael Scott (Steve Carell), the manager of the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of Dunder Mifflin, a paper company. However, purists know that David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is the one and only king of paper. The BBC series also starred Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Mackenzie Crook (The Adventures of Tintin) and Lucy Davis (Nitrate, The Mentalist, Married Single Other). Faceoff: Michael Scott Vs David Brent The Office: Special Edition celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the original BBC series that spiraled into a successful comedy series on NBC. If you’ve never watched the original series, you will be surprised to learn that this groundbreaking show only had 12 episodes and a 2-part Christmas Special. Yet, its legacy cannot be denied. It’s a little startling to watch the first few episodes of the BBC series if you’ve watched the NBC series. »

Harry's Law Review: Miracles

7 December 2011 8:49 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Harry, Cassie and Oliver defended a young mother accused of euthanizing her severely ill infant this week, while Tommy and Adam fought the good fight for an Iraq veteran quirw deserving a purple heart.

It seemed Harry's Law was in the business of delivering legal miracles on "Purple Hearts," wasn't it?

While the episode succeeded at pulling the heart strings, I found I was less welcoming of the social commentaries that dominated the hour.

I sincerely appreciated the addition of Josh Braaten to the cast. He's been making the rounds as a guest star, and just when I'd forgotten about his time on The Mentalist, here he was guest starring on Harry's Law.

Other than that, his presence wasn't the focus of the episode, aside from being the defendant's husband in the mercy killing case. Slightly disappointing, but clearly necessary.

That said, did anyone else see that Nurse O'Malley clearly »

TV Review: TNT’s ‘Scott Turow’s Innocent’ Deserves Prosecution

29 November 2011 9:41 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – With the success of mystery shows like “C.S.I.” and “The Mentalist,” why not try and bring back a staple of the ’70s and ’80s TV scene, the mystery movie of the week? Such is the thinking behind TNT’s programmers, as the network will debut a whopping four stand-alone mystery movies in the next month, starting with tonight’s debut of “Scott Turow’s Innocent,” starring Bill Pullman, Marcia Gay Harden, Alfred Molina, and Richard Schiff. Despite the stellar cast, this is a limp, dull effort that will only serve to remind viewers why they don’t make TV movies like this often any more.

Television Rating: 2.0/5.0

Twenty years ago, Turow made waves with the book and film for the tight mystery of “Presumed Innocent.” In Alan Pakula’s film, Harrison Ford memorably played Rusty Sabich, a prosecutor who watched his life turn upside down after his mistress ended up dead. »

Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Tourney Opens With Castle, X-Files, Medium, Warehouse 13 and V

23 November 2011 3:12 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Their stated goal is to uphold the law of the land and put the bad guys behind bars, but every TV fan knows that our favorite small-screen cops, detectives, and agents — as well as their colleagues who semi-officially serve in crime-fighting capacities — have a duty to increase pulses and raise the temperatures of whatever rooms they enter.

We recently wrapped up a 64-player bracket tournament for male law-enforcement types — won by NCIS‘ Tony Dinozzo — and since we’re equal opportunity oglers/romantics, we figured we’d better construct a similar showdown for their female counterparts.

Today, we kick things off with hotties from The X-Files, »
