On Saturday, BBC America will air a Doctor Who special. It’ll be one of the last episodes starring current doctor David Tennant. In 2010, there will be a new actor taking over the role, but there will be a few more specials airing throughout the rest of this year.
Season Finales: I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!
Pick of the Week
Starring: James Purefoy, Neve Campbell, Jesse L. Martin, Lindy Booth, Michael K. Williams
Premieres: Wednesday, June 24
Synopsis: A billionaire playboy decides to spend all his money on philanthropist ideals, which takes him all around the world.
My Take: I enjoyed James Purefoy in Rome and the globe hopping (with actual shooting done in South Africa, Mozambique and Prague) interests me.
This week is the official start of 24 since the movie in November was just to tie the last season and this current season together. For those that have DirectTV, they have already seen the season of Friday Night Lights that is now playing on NBC. It is the final season for Battlestar Galactica and soon American Idol will dominate the airwaves while I hope its ratings continue to die so it doesn’t take over so much tv every winter and spring like it has done the past few years.
Season Finales: Real Chance of Love
Pick of the Week
Starring: Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Carlos Bernard, Annie Wersching, Cherry Jones, James Morrison, Jeffrey Nordling, Janeane Garofalo, Rhys Coiro, Colm Feore, Bob Gunton
Premieres: Sunday, January 11
Synopsis: Jack Bauer is on trial in Washington, D.C. and Tony is back from the dead as the bad guy. It’s time for Jack to save the day again.
My Take: I quit watching halfway through season six since it wasn’t just beyond ridiculous but it was also boring. I am going to give it another shot to see if the extended break gave it any sort of breather it needed to revive itself back to its former glory. I found the 24: Redemption movie closer to the old version of the show so I have hope.
Premieres: Fri, Jul 18
Starring: James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson, Tim Omundson, Corbin Bernsen, Kirsten Nelson
Synopsis: Shawn is a really observant guy who tries to pass as a psychic in order to help the Santa Barbara police department. His never-before-seen mother will show up this season as Cybil Shepherd.
My Take: One of the funniest shows on television. I love Shawn and Gus’s buddy relationship.
