TVOvermind Interviews Oscar Winner Timothy Hutton From Leverage

There are some television shows you watch just because you turn the TV on, and there they are. Then there are the other kind; the type that immediately draws the viewer in, and makes them look forward to a weekly date with their television. Leverage falls into the latter category. It is, by far, one of the best written and acted shows on TV today, and it concludes its first season next week with episode 13, “The Second David Job”.


Supernatural 4.13 “After School Special” Recap

This recap of Supernatural was hard to write, due to the events surrounding the Supernatural family this past week. I was constantly struck by the irony that this was the episode that aired after Kim Manners’ death because the three shows he directed the most episodes of in his long career, going all the way back to Charlie’s Angels, were featured in this episode. Supernatural, obviously, but there was also an homage to The X-Files, and a reference to 21 Jump Street. How eerily prescient it seemed, to this recapper, that this episode was, in and of itself, a dedication to Mr. Manners, and his long career as a Director and Executive Producer, among many other things. I really wish I could say that is the end of the sadness in this recap, but I found this entire episode to be extremely sad, and I doubt I am the only one.

Chuck Meets the Superbowl: How to find those 3-D glasses

So, unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have heard by now that the episode of Chuck that immediately follows the Superbowl, as well as certain commercials during the Superbowl, will be aired in 3-D. What you may not know is how to find those pesky 3-D glasses, and we are here to help! A list of the retailers who have the glasses has been provided by the kind people at RTWV Online.

Take my advice, print the list. I drove around aimlessly trying to remember it from memory, and had an afternoon made of fail until a phone call to my friend, Becky, saved me.

Target is on the list, but I was told by the manager at my Target that they did not have them, and had not been told they would be getting them in at all. Otherwise, the list is solid. Oh, and they are free, and come in sheets of four pairs. I was frankly a little shocked Pepsico didn’t take this opportunity to make us all buy at least a 20 oz bottle of Pepsi, but that is just my cynicism shining through.

Happy hunting! I can’t wait to see Chuck in a 3-D!

Update: We’ve all been wondering if those glasses from My Bloody Valentine, starring Jensen Ackles (see now at at theater near you!), will work for viewing the 3-D episode of Chuck. This lead to a science lesson from my brother, Bobby, and the following press release from the people who are bringing us this episode of Chuck:
