The broadcast and cable networks have nearly two dozen brand-new shows (hopefully) heating up primetime this winter. To help you sort through those offerings, TVLine, as we did in the fall, is presenting some First Impressions. Leading off our wintertime list is.…
The Show | NBC’s Smash (Mondays at 10/9c, premiering Feb. 6 aka “the night after the Super Bowl,” as Mr. Promo Guy makes clear)

"I'm not one of those people who sits in the dark, looking at their work from 70 years earlier," Angela Lansbury insists. "I'm really not."
Still, the widely loved stage and screen star is pleased that many of her films are about to be showcased by Turner Classic Movies. The channel has named the "Murder, She Wrote" television icon its Star of the Month for January, with Lansbury festivals running each Wednesday.
The titles range from her screen debut in 1944's "Gaslight" (Jan. 4) to her chilling portrayal of one of movie history's most manipulative mothers in 1962's "The Manchurian Candidate" (Jan. 18) -- both Oscar-nominated performances.
"When I see it now," Lansbury tells Zap2it of her "Gaslight" work, "I say, 'How did you ever have the chutzpah to play that role as you did, at that age?' I'm enormously interested in how I arrived at that performance, but I also »
Agneepath Trailer 1, Trailer 2. Karan Malhotra‘s Agneepath (2012) movie trailer 1, movie trailer 2 stars Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor, and Sanjay Dutt. Agneepath‘s plot synopsis: “Roshan plays Vijay, a young man whose father was killed by a local gang lord. The man behind the death takes Vijay under his wing, without Vijay’s knowledge. Flash forward about twenty years and Vijay finds out the truth and goes on a rampage of revenge.”
The first movie trailer gives the viewer more of the plot of the film, the second movie trailer is action heavy. I would watch the second movie trailer first, than watch the watch first trailer.

Agneepath is one of my most anticipated films of 2012 from India or anywhere in the world. The film stars Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra, two of the prettiest people in India, doing some nasty stuff. It's a revenge story, and while the plot hasn't been completely spoiled, some key points have come out through various media channels.Roshan plays Vijay, a young man whose father was killed by a local gang lord. The man behind the death takes Vijay under his wing, without Vijay's knowledge. Flash forward about twenty years and Vijay finds out the truth and goes on a rampage of revenge. Nothing too out there or unusual, but the trailers have shown some serious stylistic chops. This is going to be a gritty »

The third movie in the comedy franchise, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas finds the stoner buds (John Cho of TV’s FlashForward and Kal Penn, TV’s House M.D.) accidentally burning down Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree.
It’s six years after the pals were caught in Guantanemo Bay (the second film), leaving Harold and Kumar estranged from each other. But they get pulled back into trouble when Kumar arrives on Harold’s doorstep with a mysterious package and burns down the tree. They then head off on a mission through New York City to find the perfect Christmas tree and, of course, getting into plenty more trouble.
Terra Nova: Occupation & Resistance – Recap
Looking back on Terra Nova as a whole reveals a rather frustrating narrative built around a sloppy mythology and over the top family values… and dinosaurs. Way back when the pilot aired in September, I was pumped for the direction I assumed this series was headed: a colony of humans traveling back in time for a second chance at life, only to find themselves at odds with the unfamiliar flora and fauna when their old ways of living affect the new world. That’s seemingly what we got in “Genesis”, with even more vague promises of some bigger issue involving the Sixers what the true purpose of Terra Nova is. Flash forward to the finale and are given the impression that the series delivered on everything to it set it would. This is of course a lie.
What came in between the pilot and the finale? »

So there we have it–another season of Dexter is in the history books. It’s been a roller coaster ride of redemption, damnation, lackluster reveals, too many needless secondary character stories, a few cringe worthy episodes and then a final shock. Dexter Season 7: Flash Forward Expectations & Theories The season started off with the introduction of the Doomsday Killer team of Professor James Gellar (Edward James Olmos) and Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks). The two were staging revelation tableaus to bring about the apocalypse. We then met up with Brother Sam (Mos Def), a reformed killer who tried to set Dexter (Michael C. Hall) on the path of righteousness. Sam appeared to be a great addition to the cast, developing a slight bromance with Dexter. Unfortunately, the bromance was short lived. As soon as we grew to like Sam, the writers killed him off. C’est la vie. By contrast, »

True confession: I’ve never truly forgiven HBO for canceling The Comeback — Lisa Kudrow’s scathing examination of the Hollywood machine and unflinching/unsettling look at basic human insecurity — that lasted for one brief, dazzling, and painfully hilarious season back in 2005. (All together now: “Note to self: After a long day at work, I don’t wanna see that!”)
Flash forward to 2011 — and more specifically to Monday night’s season finale of the network’s equally brilliant/wince-inducing/honest/infuriating Enlightened — and here I am ready to rage against the network for not yet committing to a second »

The promo is all breasts, bums and reality TV stars. It's no wonder Penn, Del Toro and Carrey ran a mile
When it was announced that the Farrelly brothers were attempting to bring the Three Stooges to modern audiences via a big screen outing, we were told Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey were in line to play Larry, Moe and Curly. Flash forward to 2011, and the first trailer for the film has arrived with TV stars Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes and Will Sasso in the lead roles. In Hollywood terms, this is a bit like being offered prime fillet steak for tea and ending up with a dollop of Princes' canned meat.
The best Farrelly brothers movies, such as There's Something About Mary and Stuck on You, carefully combined low-rent laughs with plenty of heart and a fair amount of puerile charm. Perhaps The Three Stooges will do the same, »

It feels like only yesterday that everyone, me included, was marveling over the Complete Series 5 Blu-ray set of Doctor Who. In fact, it was over a year ago that the 11th Doctor and friends left our TV screens for the first time, wrapping up an incredible season and leaving fans excited for the future. It marked an amazing debut for new show runner Stephen Moffat, new Doctor Matt Smith and new companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, played by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill respectively. When Series 5 ended, we were treated to an exceptionally happy ending with the universe saved, the Doctor restored and Amy and Rory married. We were also left with a lot of lingering questions and mysteries to be solved, prominently about the identity and history of River Song (Alex Kingston). But without a doubt, we were in a great new era of Doctor Who. Flash forward to the present, »

More new photos emerge from the newest installment of the Underworld franchise. Last week, we brought you a new pic of Kate Beckinsale as Selene in the fourth film, Underworld: Awakening. Now, Screen Gems has released a few new pics of the vampire warrioress along with pics of Michael Ealy‘s character.
Ealy, whom you may recognize from last year’s canceled ABC show, FlashForward, is playing a police detective who hunts the vampires and ultimately joins forces with Selene.

While it’s safe to say I’m not a hardcore Transformers fan, the franchise does hold a place close to my heart, so the prospect of a third big screen outing for Optimus Prime and co. had me salivating with anticipation. After all I enjoyed Revenge of the Fallen- a fact in which I think I’m alone in amongst my fellow movie bloggers – so a new film had me giddy as a kid in a sweet shop.
So after all my excitement could Michael Bay’s third big-budget battling robot bonanza ever live up to what I wanted it to be? Hell yes!
Opening with an awesome X-Files-esque alternate history re-telling of the Apollo space program of the late 60s/early 70s, »
Thanksgiving is here (American Thanksgiving, at least), making it officially the Holiday Season. It’s a time for reflection, for pausing to appreciate those people and things we’re most grateful for, and for focusing on what’s really important in life. Television. Here are just a few of the many things I am grateful for this year.
***I don’t follow baseball when it’s not the Cubbies, and therefor missed the spectacular Game Six of the World Series. Its utter epicness, however, demands that any fan of televised sports at least mention it in any discussion of this nature. A great game, and one of the TV moments of 2011 that I’m most sorry to have missed.
Fat Mac (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)
I’ve been a fan of Always Sunny for years now, but had lost interest over the past few seasons. When I heard, »

On Nov. 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding through Dallas' Dealey Plaza as his wife, Jacqueline, sat by his side. The country has been trying to piece together exactly what happened, and mourn the event, ever since.
The assassination had a big impact not just on the country, but on authors, filmmakers and writers who have been inspired by the tragedy to make art (and, yes, some of it humorous) based on the event and the repercussions it had for Americans. Below, we list a sampling of some of our favorite Kennedy-related pop culture references:
I was kind of late to the party. Even as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim swoops into stores, I'd known about The Elder Scrolls series for years, dating back to the PC versions of Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I just never played them. When I first got my Xbox 360, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was one of the games that I had flagged to pick up and play. I just never got around to it until last fall.
From the opening quest to escape from a jail cell, to the first time going through an Oblivion gate, I was hopelessly hooked. I just couldn't believe that somebody had made such an amazing first person role playing game. It was fluid, it was pretty, it was well acted, and it was fun. Yeah, I know, like I said, I was late to the party.
Flash forward to this fall. »
It’s Top Chef: Texas episode 3, entitled “Quinceanera”, a reference to the famous “coming of age” party for Latin American girls turning fifteen, as we learned from this episode and will treat like a common fact we already knew because we are broad-minded white people. Seriously, some of my best friends are having Quinceaneras! Wait, no they’re not, that’s worse. Ahh whatever, I lose. For the Quickfire, the chefs better get ready to have their cages Rattled and their…something… snaked… fangs! It’s snakes. They’re cooking rattlesnakes. And when they find out “it had to be snakes,” obviously, it instantly reminds us of the famous Indiana Jones quote: The chefs each must prepare a dish using rattlesnakes (which have already been killed and skinned – Boooo) for guest chef Johnny Hernandez of San Antonio, who really knows a lot about snakes: Padma explains, “When this competition is over, »

Castle | No sooner did I hear that the screener for the next new episode was available did I lunge for the play button. As you may know, “Kill Shot” revolves around a sniper who is picking off “random” civilians — and as you can imagine, the case has a profound effect on Beckett, who found herself on the business end of a long-range rifle in the Season 3 finale. »

Last Friday, well before last night’s Raw appearance and just before his stand-up tour came to an end with a double showing at London’s Leicester Square theatre – which sold out within a day of the tickets being released – myself and Michael Atkinson (who definitely has a future of looking like Foley on its way) found ourselves sat within a braying crowd.
“Foley! Foley! Foley! Foley!”
A carcophany of appreciative noise for the large man currently standing on the stage in front of us in red flannel. And he’s lapping it up, playing off the crowd’s reaction in mock-humility, and when he decides to get a hold on the room, he doubtlessly sees hundreds of beaming faces looking up at him. Most have never been this close to Foley: this 700 hundred or so seat venue in the heart of Newcastle is about as intimate as it comes for a WWE star, »
