Mid-Season TV Crush: Matt Lauria, The Chicago Code

There are a million reasons to tune in to the series premiere of FOX’s new cop drama, The Chicago Code: 1) It’s a Shawn Ryan creation. I loved The Shield, so I’m hoping The Chicago Code will be just as exciting, intense and well-acted; 2) Jennifer Beals. Over the years, […]

Mid-Season TV Crushes: Starz’s Spartacus Gods of the Arena

Here’s the situation. I remember watching an episode of Spartacus: Blood and Sand when I subscribed to Starz and really disliking it. I found out later it wasn’t the pilot so I probably shouldn’t have started with that one. After a number of people I know continued to tell me […]

Tonight on the USA Network, the new series Fairly Legal debuts at 10/9C. While most of the attention for this new show has been placed squarely on the shoulders of lead actress Sarah Shahi (formerly of the short-lived series Life), I know once viewers get a look at her co-star, […]

Mid-Season TV Crushes: USA Network’s White Collar

USA Network’s White Collar has an abundance of riches: good ratings; great writing; and a cast that just clicks. When the show brought back Marsha Thomason, I thought that was the last piece of the puzzle. Now everything’s perfect. You know what else is perfect? The show’s two leads. When […]

Just like any self-respecting tvholic should, I get excited about mid-season television. I like that there’s a reserve of (potentially) good to great shows the networks – for whatever reason – have decided to launch outside the (over)hyped fall season. I consult lists, watch previews, and research casts. I’m a […]
