According to TV Guide’s new poll of America’s Favorite TV Cast’s of all time, The West Wing came in at number one and Lost at #2. Don’t we know it!
I love this new show and didn’t think about the similarites. If you haven’t watched The Walking Dead yet, I highly recomend that you check it out. It’s so good that I was considering starting a blog about this show.
Have you forgotten about me yet? Has the magic of The End faded?
I’ve only been able to watch the finale once since… the finale … and only because I had to blog. I think I need therapy. I just can’t bring myself to watch it again. Maybe because I don’t want to admit it’s over. I had a friend who passed many years ago and I still have her number in my phone. Told ya I need some therapy.
Anyway, TV hasn’t been the same since May 23 but I did catch an amazing new show on AMC, The Walking Dead, and it makes me want to blog again. Now that is some good TV! Yes, it’s about zombies technically… but Lost was about survivors on an island so don’t be quick to judge. Check it out, see what you think. I’ll probably be dropping a few lines here about it too. Not your typical TV fare which makes it extra special in my book.
Jorge Garcia is going to make a few guest appearances so set your TiVo!
First he’ll be on “How I Met Your Mother” playing an old college friend. Read the details here.
He will also be on Matthew Perry’s new show “Mr Sunshine” playing one of the staffers. Too bad he’s not a regular. Read the details here.
Yes, Josh is back and on the big screen! He’s being cast by JJ for the new Mission Impossible film. I can’t wait to see his acting chops on the big screen. Let’s hope he gets a bigger part than Dominic did in Wolverine.
I hope this is it! JJ is pitching a comedic drama about two former black-ops featuring, you guessed it, Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson! Will Hurley get a walk on part?
This idea is so-so to me. If JJ wants to give us seven minutes in heaven he could give us more Lost!

J.J. Abrams and the folks at Bad Robot have conquered the art of the high-concept pitch. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog, Abrams’ company has picked up an idea from Lost director Jack Bender that goes a little something like this: Two teens at a party play 7 Minutes in Heaven, and when they emerge from the closet, everyone else in the house is dead. I don’t have any idea who’s going to be in the movie, who will direct, or even a clue beyond that 21-word plot description, but I’m already digging into my wallet.
Anyone who’s seen Abrams’ trailers for Cloverfield and Super 8 knows he’s a master of the less-is-more approach, the I’m-not-sure-what-I-just saw-but-I-want-more school of salesmanship. His projects typically have a sharp hook, and just a taste of the story is often enough to reel in an audience. No wonder he’s a green-light machine.
Does the short pitch for 7 Minutes sound interesting to you? Does Abrams’ track record give you confidence that the result will deliver the goods?
