The L Word – Summer DVD Review – Pilot
Angelique – Associate Staff Writer

For my summer DVD reviews I choose a show which I will dearly miss next January. A show that has been around for the past six years, From the first moment I heard the rumors about a show with this storyline I was dying to see it. Especially since I myself was struggling with my own sexuality a show like this was helpful in ways. More even so because there never really where any lesbian characters in television. At least not with mayor story lines evolving around the issue. I was completely psyched and counting down the days when January 18th 2004 finally rolled around, I watched it and I loved it. The only thing I ever really hated about the show was the fact that it only had 12 episodes a season, and of course that there where only 6 seasons.

‘The L Word’ is a story about the lives and loves of a group of lesbian and bisexual friends living in Los Angeles. The first episode mainly shows you the relationships in the group and where everyone is in their life.

Harper's Island - Gurgle (Air Date: 6-6-09)
Karen- Sr. Staff Writer

Oh My God! This show is getting more intense as the weeks go by. I am just going to say to all of you that are not watching- START! Or get the DVD when it comes out, I will! It is that good! Anyways, here is what is happening: Everyone is packing to leave and get the hell off this God forsaken island of doom, but creepy Madison is missing and can’t be found. Henry asks for help to look for her and would you believe that Cal is the one who steps up to the plate first? Way to go English!

Recap and review of Gurgle

Spaced – Summer DVD Review – Beginnings
JD – Associate Staff Writer

You put Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright together, and what do you get? Genius films like Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. Of course, those are all the big screen efforts, but what about the small screen? Well, look back a decade in the past to 1999 and you’ll find Spaced, a quirky comedy about a group of people trying to find their place in the world as they tread that murky place somewhere between youth and adulthood. Well, that’s the serious way to put it, anyway. The more realistic way to put it is “a group of utter nutjobs who wind up thrust together by a twist of fate and have to learn to endure each others issues… all while trying to find their place in the world at a rather confusing stage of life”.

24 nabs Starbuck

She wowed on Battlestar Galactica, she was one of the only good things on Bionic Woman and she even spoke with TheTwoCents a while back. Now, according to Hollywood Reporter, Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast of 24 for next season.

“In a casting straight out of fan central, Katee Sackhoff, best known for her role as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on “Battlestar Galactica,” has been tapped to co-star on another series with a big fan following, Fox’s “24.”

Sackhoff will play Dana Walsh, a smart, competent, expert data analyst at CTU with a secret past who is involved with CTU agent Davis Cole (Freddie Prinze Jr.).”
