On last week’s episode, Dracula discovered Lady Jayne’s secret; she captures, tortures and destroys vampires; bad, bad Jayne. Up until this episode, I was a bit upset with the lack of action and bloodletting on the series. I was about to plunge the stake and change channels. I’m a big fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and could not wrap my head around his lackadaisical Dracula. Jonathan’s Henry Tudor from Showtime had more blood thirsty tendencies than this mellow creature of the night. Dracula is known for his blood sucking, killer instincts. He’s supernatural and I expect Dracula to kick butt. Last week, he did, and so did his sidekick Van Helsing. It’s about time! But, my little blood banks, Dracula has his own secrets and we will meet one tonight after the jump.
This time of year may not be specifically the start of a new TV season, but with hundreds of channels available and new series ending their runs, summer offers up several new series. Among them, “Dexter,” “Breaking Bad,” “True Blood,” “Under the Dome,” “The Bridge,” and one that I got a sneak peek of – “Ray Donovan.” Check out my review of the pilot, after the jump.
Everybody at Biff Bam Pop! is talking about Top Fives, so I guess it’s my turn. Put on your seat belts, because as the regular readers around here know already, my tastes are not normal. I liked Santa Claus and hated Dark Knight. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Next, after the jump, my top fives in film, music, television, and comic books. Look out.
Tim Daly who plays Pete Wilder on Private Practice announced on Tuesday that Shonda Rhimes has not picked up his contract option for the ABC drama’s upcoming sixth (and likely final) season. In a post on his twitter page Daly explained, “Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6. It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder.” I guess it’s not too much of a shocker. In the season finale, Pete was jailed for compassionately ending the life of a patient kept alive by machines. Personally I would’ve much rather seen Violet go. What do you Private Practice fans think about this?
