The new show with Zooey? Thoughts? Also... It's Always Sunny... did you guys get a chance to sneak a peek at that?
I found ‘New Girl’ to be charming. If you like Zooey, you’ll like the show. I am afraid it will toe the line and overplay her cute and adorableness. As for ‘Always Sunny,’ Maggie Furlong went to the set and came back with tons of fun content, including this video of the cast talking Fat Mac. Look for more soon!
“We used her up. I mean, that woman … we essentially raped her talent. She is obviously a triple threat — that’s not giving anything away — and we were like, guess what? You bring a talent to set, it’s going to get used. [Laughs] She hit a home run … it was awesome.”—Casey Wilson on Megan Mullally playing her mom on ‘Happy Endings.’ More from the ‘Happy Endings’ cast.
Another question about SMASH. I've read that they've only shot the pilot episode so far. Do you think that because of Hurricane Irene's wrath that there will be a delay in upcoming episodes for this show when it does debut mid-season? Also, are there any other BIG roles waiting to be cast to play the actors who would play Marilyn's infamous lovers? ( JFK, Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller comes to mind) who do you think should play them? cancanimagime
I don’t think Hurricane Irene will affect much with the show airing. They’re writing all the episodes/music now to get it all set, unlike ‘Glee’ which is more fluid in production.
I haven’t even thought of guest stars/who should fill those roles. I’m sure more Broadway vets will pop up.
Normally we’d post a link to our roundup of fun stuff to do over the weekend, but given the whole hurricane business, we’re just going to recommend that you stay inside, stock up on essentials (a lot of booze is non-perishable!) and ride this thing out.
What did you think of PRIME SUSPECT? Does it have potential? How's Maria Bello in it?
Prime Suspect and I had a rocky viewing. Here’s what I said about it originally: ” I was bored, then into it, then confused, into it and then super bored again. Too uneven and too over the top with the boys club police department. Was there even another female officer shown? What year is this?” At the link you’ll find the opinions of my colleagues.
It definitely has problems. There is potential, but those kinks need to get worked out fast. I also hate the scarf and fedora they have her in.
Speaking as Chris, not as AOL TV as a whole, the best new show I saw was ‘Smash.’ There are a plenty of other pretty good ones like ‘New Girl,’ ‘Good Christian Belles,’ ‘Apartment 23’ and ‘Pan Am.’ I also liked ‘2 Broke Girls.’
