The X-Files Meets Moonlighting? I Don’t See Why Not.

<I>The X-Files</I> Meets <I>Moonlighting</I>? I Don’t See Why Not. I've always imagined the hardest part of pitching a series to a network would be choosing just the right "It's like this successful thing meets this other successful thing!" portion of the sell. You'd think one would want to choose accurate examples, whilst remaining not ridiculous, so people will be assured that you're not an idiot and want to invest in your product. Then a week comes along where both a show described as "The Devil Wears Prada meets Taxi" and another show described as "part X-Files, part Raiders of the Lost Ark and part Moonlighting" are announced. All I got to say is I bet all my friends are sorry for laughing at my Hard Rain meets Spy Kids fan fiction now.

The X-Files: Revelations

All nine seasons of The X-Files are available on DVD. There are also four Mythology sets of 14-16 episodes that focus on different aspects of the ongoing conspiracy storylines. But chances are, you don't have time to watch all 202 episodes as a refresher before checking out The X-Files: I Want to Believe. So don't be fooled by the promises of The X-Files: Revelations, a two-disc, eight-episode set that claims to be the "essential guide to the X-Files movie."

The Six Sexiest TV Vampires Ever

The Six Sexiest TV Vampires Ever

With True Blood premiering this weekend, I was inspired to take a look back at the hottest bloodsuckers to grace the small screen. I have little doubt that TB's own fanged Bill will be joining this list in the coming weeks, if they stick at all close to the smokin' hot books (which are filled with seriously smutty vampire sex... and I mean that in the best possible way), and judging by the first two episodes they kind of are. So here's a look at the other cold-blooded creatures that can make your blood boil... with or without the help of those fancy glamor things.

Everything Else Is Just Business: Lance Reddick on the <i>Fringe</i> of Primetime

Viewers of The Wire know him only as Cedric Daniels, last seen beginning his career as a lawyer after resigning his position as Baltimore's police commissioner. Lost followers puzzle over his appearances as the mysterious "recruiter" Matthew Abaddon, seen intersecting with major characters at key moments in both flashbacks and fast-forwards. But this fall, Lance Reddick hopes fans of both shows rediscover him as yet another complex character: Agent Phillip Broyles of the Dept. of Homeland Security on Fringe, the new J.J. Abrams series airing on Fox. We caught up with the straight-shooting actor earlier this week at the New York premiere party for the show, where he spoke his mind about his past, present and future.

TWoP: It's not possible for any television show to be more critically acclaimed than The Wire, and yet it was almost entirely overlooked by the Emmys throughout its five seasons. How much does that bother you and your castmates?

Stuntcasting Strikes Again

Stuntcasting Strikes Again Like it or not, as long as networks will never be satisfied with having a modest but decent enough audience for a series, stuntcasting will always be with us. So like it or not, Christina Ricci will appear in three upcoming Saving Grace episodes this season. I don't really understand why, of all the shows in the world, Ricci chose that one to guest on, considering she's pretty famous and could probably get a spot on a much bigger show, but maybe she's a fan. And working with Holly Hunter is nothing to sneeze at, so that may be the reason as well.

Daddy Dearest: Our Tribute to TV Fathers

When it comes to TV, there are way more fabulous and high-profile roles for moms and the poor dads get the short shrift. However, we spent minutes weeks hunting through Wikipedia and our collective minds the annals of television for the best and worst TV dads that we could remember. Well, at least these are the ones that left an indelible mark on us, and not with wire hangers or anything (though we may not put that past some of the dastardly daddies on our naughty list). So in honor of Father's Day, here's our slapped together long-awaited list in alphabetical order (because we just couldn't decide if Jack Bristow or Keith Mars would be the No. 1 perfect patriarch).
