Kaley Cuoco Gushes Over Her 'Big Bang Theory' Cast in a Lost Interview (Exclusive)

Just to give this a bit of perspective, The Big Bang Theory — the hit sitcom that celebrates all things nerdy and has proven that the geek shall inherit the Earth (if they haven't already) — is currently 254 episodes into what is so far an 11 season run. But at the time that Kaley Cuoco, Penny herself, sat down with me to talk about the show, only eight episodes had aired. Despite that, the series had already begun connecting with the audience, and made stars of Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper), Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz), Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali), and, of course, Kaley (who had already scored TV hits with 8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter and Charmed). (Photo Credit: Getty Images) The sense that I got from her is that she was having a great time, already recognizing that they had something special there, and this was in the days

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Season Two Ratings

The first season of BBC America's Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency earned pretty low ratings, but that's generally true of shows on this little cable channel. The thing is, these series often originate in UK, or are international co-productions of some sort. In the case of this show, Netflix distributes it outside the Us, so their continue interest comes into play where cancellations or renewals are concerned. So, will Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. Loosely based on the Douglas Adams novels, the Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency TV show stars Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Jade Eshete, Hannah Marks, Mpho Koaho, Fiona Dourif, Dustin Milligan, John Hannah, Amanda Walsh, Michael Eklund, Osric Chau, Viv Leacock, Zak Santiago, Tyler Labine, Izzie Steele, Alan Tudyk, Alexia Fast, Agam Darshi, and Aleks Paunovic.

‘Dirk Gently’ Review: Season 2 Premiere Is a Messy ‘Acceleration of Strangeness’

‘Dirk Gently’ Review: Season 2 Premiere Is a Messy ‘Acceleration of Strangeness’
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the Season 2 premiere of “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,” titled “Space Rabbit.”]

“How did I forget how annoying you are?” asks Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood) in the trailer for BBC America’s “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.” It’s a familiar feeling for viewers reentering the world Max Landis adapted from Douglas Adams’ source material because just as with last year, this season is not content to unspool a story quietly, logically, or with any sort of restraint.

The overstuffed episode checks back in with eight returning characters (yes, we’re also counting Rowdy 3 member Vogel and the dog Rapunzel), and introduces at least eight more. Despite that surfeit of players, we have yet to even meet Alan Tudyk, who joins this year as the gun-happy Mr. Priest.

Think You Know Everything About 'Big Bang' Theory? Bet You Don't Know This

2017-08-22T12:12:46-07:00Think You Know Everything About 'Big Bang' Theory? Bet You Don't Know This

Since 2007 nerds all over the world have been rejoicing over the sitcom hilarity that is The Big Bang Theory. I used to think that the show was a major exaggeration, but as I've gotten older I've come to realize that there are in fact people out there who have Sheldon Cooper tendencies. You know those people who just can't help but correct someone about something that is completely arbitrary? Those people who simply can't go through a conversation without turning it into a lecture? Those people who are so insanely neurotic that it's comical? They make life interesting, and I'd like to thank them for that.

But even though the show is a major commercial success, the stuff that has happened behind the scenes aren't so colorful. Check it out.

Comic-Con 2017 Interviews: Fiona Dourif, Mpho Koaho, Robert Cooper & Max Landis Talk Dirk Gently’S Holistic Detective Agency Season 2

After watching the end of its first season, fans of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency know that the show is going to be quite a different experience in season 2, and at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead took part in roundtable interviews to look ahead at the future of the series and also reflect on season 1 with co-stars Fiona Dourif and Mpho Koaho, as well as executive producers Robert Cooper and Max Landis.

How did you go about taking something like Dirk, [from] Douglas Adams, which to me feels quintessentially British, and then making it something that will work on BBC America and all around the world?

Robert Cooper: Most of the directors of season 2 are British—all are from the UK but one. There's a sensibility to the show, and I think that's to a certain extent what gives the show a little bit of a bend to it,

Dirk Gently season 2: Alan Tudyk and more join the cast

Michael Ahr Rob Leane May 16, 2017

Alan Tudyk, John Hannah and Amanda Walsh have joined Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency season 2...

With plenty of genre fare appearing across many networks, fans of sci-fi and supernatural stories have lots to choose from. But Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC America is inarguably unique with its universe centered around the power of coincidence. The quirky show has hit a chord with its audience and its host network as it was announced - back in November - that it will return for a second season.

Interview: Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer talk ‘Lost Girl: Season 5′

Let me ask you… Zoie, I’ll start with you, can you talk about what you want the show to be remembered for? Like, what you most want people to think about when they think of Lost Girl.

Zoie Palmer: Gosh, that’s a – it feels like a big question, because there’s you know as we come to the end, it feels like there’s so much. Everything comes rushing back to me you know. I think – well, no you know it was such a team, of both the characters and the cast you know.

Mercy (2014) review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

Mercy (2014)

Written by: Matt Greenberg, Stephen King (Short Story)

Directed by: Peter Cornwell

Cast: Chandler Riggs (George), Dylan McDermott (Jim Swann), Mark Duplass (Uncle Lanning), Francess O’Connor (Rebecca), Joel Courtney (Buddy), Hana Hayes (Girl Next Door), Amanda Walsh (Charlotte), Chris Browning (Frank), Shirley Knight (Mercy)

If you notice from the credits, “Mercy” is a feature length film that is based on a short story from the modern day master of horror himself, Stephen King. In my humble opinion, I don’t think that Stephen King is one of those guys who you either love or hate. Regardless, of whether you judge him exclusively within the horror genre or when films based on his work crossed out of horror, such as “The Green Mile”. There is something from Stephen King for everyone, and at least one of the many things he wrote that resonates

Et has some behind the scenes tidbits from TV's top rated comedy!

Our favorite gang of scientific nerds is back for season 8 and Et has some behind the scenes tidbits from TV's top rated comedy! Here are six things you probably didn't know about The Big Bang Theory.

6. Origins of "Bazinga" (Hint: It involves a grapefruit!)

Sheldon's trademark catchphrase originated with show writer Stephen Engel who would set up a recurring practical joke that involved taping a hallowed out grapefruit back together. "I'd open it up and [he] would say 'Bazinga," exexcutive producer Bill Prady recalled. "It was Stephen's word for gotcha." It caught on so much that not only did they put it in the show but Bazinga has officially been dubbed a species of bee.

Michael Gaston Cast In HBO’s ‘Leftovers’, Amanda Walsh Leads Fox’s ‘Wtf America’
Michael Gaston has joined the cast of Damon Lindelof’s HBO drama pilot The Leftovers, directed by Peter Berg. Co-written by Lindelof and Tom Perrotta based on Perrotta’s book, the project takes place after the Rapture happens but not quite like it’s supposed to. It is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut… and a world that will never be the same. Gaston, repped by Apa and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, will play Dean, a man who seems to understand that times have changed and addresses it head-on — often violently. He has recurred on Mad Men, The Mentalist and Damages. Amanda Walsh, Steve Burg, Rebecca Drysdale and Brad Morris star in Fox’s Wtf America, a preliminary presentation for a hybrid scripted/unscripted project with a bit of reality from Dan Maser, Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox TV.
