Grimm--A Great Review

This is really a great review about Grimm.  I am getting very anxious for the new fall season to start and this show is one of the reasons why.

Thanks to Krystle for sending this article in today to one of groups.

Take a former Road Ruler (no joke!). Stick him in a series about fairy tales. And make his bosses Will & Grace's Sean Hayes and one of the dudes behind Buffy and Angel. And boom! Believe it or not, you have a new fall drama with some serious potential.
So why is NBC's Grimm totally unlike that other fairy-tale series we already raved about?
For starters, it might scare the bejeezus out of you...
Grimm (NBC)
Premieres: Friday, Oct. 21, 9 p.m.
Time-Slot Competition: CSI: New York (CBS), Fringe (Fox), Shark Tank (ABC), Supernatural (CW)
David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee
Status: We've seen the pilot episode
"My folks used to tell me these stories," says star (and former Road Ruler!) David Giuntoli about the famous Grimm fairy tales, "which scared the hell out of me when I was a kid."
Can you blame him? Hansel and Gretel's witch captured, cooked and ate children; in Little Red Riding Hood—the subject of Grimm's pilot—a chatty wolf in drag snacks on a little girl and her sick grandmother.
Saving the world one blutbad—the German word for the mostly evil creatures (literally: bloodbath)—at a time is Portland homicide detective Nick Burckhardt (Giuntoli). That's the appealing twist of Grimm: The fantasy series is also a police procedural. And our hero is more than a cop: In the series premiere, he learns he's a descendant of supernatural hunters known as "Grimms" and has acquired their special powers and great responsibility—destroying the blutbads—upon the death of his aunt.
While the crime element is newish, Grimm's focus on the Big Bad mirrors genre shows like Supernatural, Buffy and Angel. That's no coincidence: co-creator David Greenwalt was also Buffy's EP and the co-creator (with Joss Whedon) of Angel.
You can spot Greenwalt's influence in Grimm's "reformed" blutbad Monroe (scene stealer Silas Weir Mitchell) who, like Buffy and Angel's lovable demons Lorne (RIP Andy Hallett) and Clem, serves as an informant/ally to Nick.
Greenwalt told us this about Grimm's "big bad wolf": "Monroe is one of my favorite characters"—ours too!—"and the most human in an odd and slightly ironic sense. He could be a metaphor for an alcoholic or someone who is violent and needs to control his anger. He's been to rehab for this as you'll find out in a coming episode." The best news about Monroe? "He's going to be in every episode," the exec producer confirmed.
Rounding out the fine cast are Bitsie Tulloch, Reggie Lee and Caprica's Sasha Roiz, Nick's seemingly shady boss and another Grimm descendant. Also playing a huge role is the City of Portland, where the series is set and filmed. The city's lush scenery offers a vibrant backdrop for the monsters in its mist—especially the spectacular scarlets in the Little Red Riding Hood-themed premiere.
Dubious about Grimm's once-upon-a-crime premise? Heed these words from executive producer Jim Kouf: "Anybody who told fairy tales was a profiler for those crimes."
Verdict: Watch—or be eaten by a cannibalistic witch. Your choice.

Once Upon A Time--New Series On ABC

This fall there are a few new series that I am eagerly waiting for and Once Upon a Time is one of them.

Lana Parrilla is starring as the evil queen and she looks and plays the part very well.  I would hate to run in to her in a dark alley.  Take a look.

Private Practice--Will There Be Trouble Ahead For Cooper And Charlotte?

Private Practice will return in a month and I ran across this article today that has piqued my interest.

PP is one of my favorite series.  With a great cast and great writers how can you go wrong--you can't.  Anyway here is the article.

Private Practice Drama: Will a 'Bomb' Drop on Happy-at-Last Charlotte and Cooper?

When TVLine visited the set of ABC’s Private Practice the other day, we tried to drum up some details on this “someone from an Oceanside doctor’s past” that A.J. Langer (My So-Called Life) will be playing, starting with the fourth episode of the coming season. And… everyone was conspicuously mum.
Series front woman Kate Walsh, only when pressed, teased that Langer’s storyline is “a goody,” adding: “It’s a good little bomb that gets dropped.” A bomb? What?
Prior to arriving at the set, we’d heard strong buzz that Langer’s character will interact with Cooper and Charlotte, who after enduring an extremely emotional and difficult Season 4, are now blissfully wed.
A.J. Langer joins Private Practice this season in a recurring role
“I cannot confirm or deny those rumors,” Paul Adelstein said when we ran that buzz by him. He then allowed, “Something’s coming down the pike, and it’s a big bump in their relationship.
“I think they’re prepared for it,” he added, “but it’s going to be interesting to see how it checks out.”
Could this “bump” — in the form of the pretty Ms. Langer or otherwise — threaten Cooper’s nascent marriage? “I don’t know if it’ll threaten it, but it will be certainly something that would be hard for any couple to adjust to,” he answered.
KaDee Strickland’s response to our Langer line of questioning was similar: “I’m not telling you nothin’,” she playfully said. “I can tell you that A.J. is playing a really key role on this show, and a really interesting role on this show, and I’m excited about her role on the show.”
Charlotte’s portrayer continued, “I just get to work with her, which I’m really excited about because they just keep giving us great people on this show to work with. I met her [on Wednesday] at the table read, so it’s going to be fun.”
Lest the many Charlotte/Cooper fans out there fret too much over the actors’ evasive comments on how Langer will shake up the Practice, Adelstein offered some words of reassurance about the newlyweds’ upcoming storyline — bumpy road and all.
“People really root for Charlotte and Cooper, and I think Charlotte and Cooper are doing a really good job of making the relationship work,” he said. “So I think people will be happy with what they’re doing [in Season 5].”

Fringe's Josha Jackson: "Peter Will Be A Changed Man

A great article on Joshua Jackson's character on Fringe--"Peter Bishop".

I have such mixed feelings on this but I know that JJ Abrams will give us a fantastic new season if we have any hair left by then.

Here is the article from Digital Spy.

'Fringe' Joshua Jackson: 'Peter will be a changed man'

Joshua Jackson has hinted that Peter will be "a changed man" in the new season of Fringe.

Jackson's character was erased from history in the sci-fi drama's third season finale, but will return in some form in future episodes.

"My hope is that the journey of Peter and the journey of the show pays off that cliffhanger we saw at the end of last year," the actor told Entertainment Weekly. "In the beginning of this year, we're back in our timeline but without one of our main characters.

"We see the lives of all the people he would have touched and, for better or for worse, we see what their lives would have been like without him."

Jackson added that he is looking forward to work on "a new permutation" of Fringe with an "entirely changed" dynamic.

"It's a pretty cool conceptual thing to allow the show to go off in this direction," he suggested. "The show is going to be grappling with [Peter's disappearance] from an emotional point all year.

The actor also hinted that fans may have seen the last of "the Peter we used to know".

"His journey was to grow up and become a man, become part of a family and dedicate himself to something," explained Jackson. "So I think the guy who would come back to us now would be a changed man."

Fringe will return to Fox on Friday, September 23 at 9/8c.

The Return of NCIS LA 9/20

I can hardly wait until we get some answers as to what exactly Hettie is up to and what this has to do with Callan. Here is a little article about this.

Chris O'Donnell
NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 2 finale saw Callen & Co. turn in their badges and head overseas in search of Hetty, who resigned from NCIS to protect Callen from the Comescu mob family.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

There's just one problem: Hetty (Linda Hunt) turned herself over to the Comescu clan before Callen (Chris O'Donnell) could find her. And based on the exclusive first images of Season 3 below, the search will continue.

In the photos, Callen, Sam (LL Cool J) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) regroup in an abandoned building in Romania as they try to determine where Hetty is and what their next step should be. But it sounds like Hetty's location isn't the only thing Callen will learn during his stay.

"No cheats. No maybes. [This is] the most revealing episode yet about Callen," executive producer Shane Brennan tells "And yes, Hetty holds the key."

What's on your Watchlist? Create one and add your favorites, like NCIS: LA

Is that key the mysterious tattoo Hetty showed the Comescu leader (Cristine Rose) in last year's finale? We'll have to wait to find that out, but the answers about Callen's mysterious ties to this family will come much sooner, Brennan says.

"What we reveal in those first four episodes is more than what we've revealed about Callen's backstory in two seasons," Brennan says. "When we get to that fourth episode, I think everyone's going to take a big deep breath, and say, 'OK, where's he going to go now? What's the next part of this journey?'  We answer a lot of questions, and they are heart-wrenching. "

Check out the photos below. NCIS: Los Angeles returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c on CBS.

Justin Chambers On The Future Of Grey's Anatomy

I know that a series cannot go on forever but just thinking about ending this fantastic series makes me very sad.  Grey's Anatomy, for me, has been my constant over the last 8 years.

This is what Justin has to say about it.

Justin Chambers Uncertain About His Grey's Future, Talks Possible Series Finale: 'I'm Sad'

Since the contracts of many of its original cast members are set to expire in May, Grey’s Anatomy could well play out its most suspenseful story off screen this season — potentially its last.
Whether the actors stay or leave, and whether the ABC hit does call it a day, Justin Chambers is keenly aware that there is no turning back. “It makes me sad to know that we’re closer to the end [than the beginning],” the actor tells TVLine. “[But] it’s been a great ride. It really has. There was no better job that I could’ve fallen into.”
Like Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo, Chambers is undecided about whether he’ll re-sign, even if there does turn out to be a series with which to re-sign. “I don’t know if I’ll go farther,” he insists. “I don’t know if the show will go farther. When we get to that point, we’ll go from there…
“We know it’s going to end sooner or later,” he continues. “It’s just about ending well and the audience getting what they want out of it, and maybe there are some amends made with the characters, because they’re very flawed.”
If he and his fellow MDs don’t re-up, Chambers is skeptical about the chances of Grey’s‘ survival. “It’s possible [it could go on], but I doubt it,” he says. “Meredith is the voice. We need that voice — I do think that. That’s a big part of it.”
For her part, series creator Shonda Rhimes remains confident the show will return for a ninth season. “I don’t presume to speak for the studio or the network,” she says, “but I don’t think this is the last season of the show.”
Neither does ABC president Paul Lee. Although this week he announced that Desperate Housewives would end after its eighth season, he’s far from ready to set an end date to Grey’s. “Hopefully, [it] is going to go on for many, many years to come,” he says, shrugging off any concern about his stars’ contracts expiring. ”We don’t have to face that for some time.”
In the meantime, the show has another milestone to mark. The second hour of its Sept. 22 season premiere is its 150th episode. “It seems like the 100th just came up,” Chambers admits. “Maybe we will go to 200. You never know.”

Fringe--Season 4 Teasers

All of this is giving me a major migraine.  I am so anxious to see the season 4 premiere I can hardly stand it.

'Fringe' Producer on Peter's Return: 'He Will Not Be Another Identity'

In a chat with THR, Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman recall "toying with" the decision to move forward with the game-changing season finale.

Fringe Season 3 Finale - 2011
Earlier this week, Fox released a new Fringe teaser asking Season 4's biggest question: Where exactly is Peter?
Showrunners Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman spoke to The Hollywood Reporter after the show's Comic-Con panel last weekend and what they said was mind-blowing and head-scratching.
Joshua Jackson joked to THR that he would like his alter ego to return to the cult sci-fi drama in a "flash of light," when the time came. Wyman, however, wasn't as giving. "You know, that is an assumption," he replied when asked about how Peter would return to the series. "He will not be another identity."
Comic-Con 2011: 'Fringe' Showrunners Jeff Pinkner and Joel Wyman (Q&A)
"For us, we are really using Peter's story this season to explore a lot of the basic rules of the show, which are choices and connection," Pinkner added.
But Wyman and Pinkner were adamant in dispelling any theories that questioned whether the events in the season finale actually happened.
"It really happened," Wyman reassured. "What we are trying to do from a conceptual standpoint is have the audience understand that it happened and you know it did happen. We watched it and there has been a catastrophe and it needs to be righted. It will either right itself properly or it will go in a very negative way. Now you have to understand what those repercussions are going to mean."
Q&A: 'Fringe' Executive Producer Calls Season 4 Renewal 'Gutsy'
He added, "Peter sacrificed himself. He was a selfless hero. There are sacrifices; a sacrifice wouldn't be hard if it was easy."
Before they decided to go ahead with the finale, there were discussions about the events that unfolded that would affect the trajectory of the series.
"Before we decided to actually pull the trigger and do that season finale, we convinced ourselves that it happened and we were willing to play with consequences," Pinkner said. "I think it ends up in a place that is really kind of beautiful."
VIDEO: 'Fringe' Cast, Showrunners Tease Season 4; Josh Jackson Makes Surprise Appearance
"When we were toying with it, it is analogous to this," Wyman explained. "In Fringe, we get to tell the quintessential kidnapping story, not about a kidnapping but about crossing universes. We get to tell the love triangle with two people who are the same person. We get to reinvent these trite situations."
Pinker agreed: "And we have characters that really hold up a mirror to themselves, having a second Walter and having a second Olivia really exposes sides of their characters that you wouldn't otherwise get."
