Life on Mars (2008–2009)
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Apparently the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, when they debuted way back in the 1980s, were intended as a parody of superhero comics. I picked up this tidbit from the Tmnt wikipedia page. I did not absorb it through some sort of cinematic osmosis while watching the new Tmnt movie, Out of the Shadows. That would have been impossible. Whatever the truth of the long-ago comic-book Turtles, there is absolutely nothing that marks them as satirical here. (This may also be true of the 2014 movie that rebooted this franchise, but I have so far managed to avoid that one. If only that had

Bonet, whose more recent TV credits include arcs on SundanceTV’s The Red Road and ABC’s short-lived Life on Mars, will play Marisol, an unstable woman with a damaging secret.

And that’s that. Goodbye to Alien Uncovered - I didn’t get to know you as well as I’d liked, but I’m sure neither of us will lose that much sleep about it. I’ll be back here on Saturday to do this all over again. Will you join me? I won’t hate you if you won’t promise. Bye.
Cheryl just called Alien Uncovered fresh and hot. I think she might have mistaken them for a delicious bagel.
Either way, Alien Uncovered are Out. This means more people will vote for 4th Impact, right? And they’ll win, right? Good.
The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio, described as a "re-imagination" of the original 1995 blockbuster Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Bonnie Hunt and Bebe Neuwirth. The original movie was spawned from the board game and book by writer Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Zathura). The movie earned a whopping $262.7 million worldwide at the box office, from a $65 million production budget.
Jumanji will hit theaters on Christmas

Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde. It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters,
The channel secured the rights to air the first 13 episodes of the summer event series starring James Wolk, reports Broadcast.

USA network announced its summer line up during its annual Upfront presentation which includes two new drama series: Mr. Robot and Complications. Mr. Robot, (a terrible name for hopefully a much better series), is described as a techno-thriller starring Christian Slater and Rami Malek. Malek plays a young programmer recruited by Slater to join an underground hacker group. Complications is created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and stars Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars) and Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl).
The show has had some ups and downs, with some episodes feeling decidedly clunky, but it hasn’t hurt the ratings, and the show has become the hit of TNT.
The release puts this one in your hand in time for the sixth season premiere, in case you need to do any catching up and/or revisiting.

It’s been nearly a month since our last update on the CBS Supergirl series, which saw Mehcad Brooks join the cast as a new cooled-up screen version of photographer Jimmy Olsen. Now, we’ve learnt about another addition to the cast – Laura Benanti, who will play Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Supergirl, aka Kara (played by Melissa Benoist of Glee and Whiplash).
In terms of character description specific to the show, what we know so far is that Alura is “a strong noblewoman, [who] sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl.”
It sounds like she might be doing a Russell-Crowe-in-Man-Of-Steel, then, popping up throughout the narrative to help out her estranged offspring with words of wisdom.

The earth-bound science fiction story centres on scientist Jackson Oz, who is systematically dismissed by his colleagues in the fields of ecology and biology after focusing years of research on animals attacking humans. Believing there to be an increasing pattern, Oz travels to Botswana, where he manages to survive a large-scale lion attack. Teaming with fellow survivor, and former diplomat, Chloe Tousignant, he works to uncover why the animal world has begun what is seemingly a united effort to remove humans from the ecosystem completely.
With James Wolk (Mad Men, The Crazy Ones) in the role of Oz,
Some characters slip onto our TV screens quietly and sneak into our hearts slowly. We watch them develop and grow, and come to love them over time, sometimes despite very inauspicious beginnings (being eaten by a wheelie bin springs to mind).
Others make more of an impression from the get-go.
In this list, we’re celebrating some of the most memorable and impressive entrances of characters from TV shows. To make the list, a character had to be (or eventually become) a regular or frequently recurring character – no one-shot wonders here. And note this is a list for TV characters, so you won’t see any Captain Jack Sparrow or even the Borg Queen – all of these had to make their big impression on the small screen.

When Lost premiered on ABC ten years ago, few predicted it would become so entrenched in pop culture and inspire many similarly high-concept ideas.
While there have always been TV shows with Big Ideas, Lost's success definitely paved the way for networks - mainly Us broadcasters with money to splash - to create dramas with grand, ambitious ideas at their core.
A decade on from the Lost pilot, we take a look at 7 TV shows from the past decade that each had a Big Idea, and examine how each fared with viewers.
What's the big idea?

Before you angrily mobilize to spray-paint a giant “Deyna 4eva” on my house, hear me out. The best decision Ray could’ve made would be to come clean with both of her beaus: “Deacon, you are one Hot Pocket, but you and I need to figure. some. stuff. out. before we even think about doing this again. And Luke, the fact that I can’t do more than plaster a half-amused smile on my face in your presence
Wright’s next project will be Baby Driver, described as “a collision of crime, action, music and sound,” but after filming on that movie is completed, the director will move quickly into Grasshopper Jungle, which boasts a script by Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Life on Mars). Rosenberg is also on board as a producer alongside The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Matt Tolmach and Nira Park, who is involved with all of Wright’s movies. Grasshopper Jungle has Tolmach to thank for scoring Wright – the producer friended Wright on Facebook and encouraged
