Play "Spot The Star Trek Actor" On This Week's Shows

It's when times are lean that you need a really good tracker — someone who can scout through the barren underbrush of the TV schedule and forage for programs worth watching. We're still on a severe diet, thanks to last winter's writers' strike. But there are some worthy programs out there. We have two preview clips… » 5/05/08 9:00am 5/05/08 9:00am

Speed Racer's Son Meets A Robot Chimp

If you had a robot butler scheduling your TV viewing (and maybe showing programs on a Teletubbies-style belly screen) he would have an upbeat lilt in his synth-voice when describing this week's TV options. There are actually some worthwhile items, on days other than Thursday and Friday. For instance, might we suggest… » 4/28/08 9:00am 4/28/08 9:00am

Lost Returns With Extra-Violent Goodness!

Lost is back once again, wrapping up its fourth season with a block of six hours (over five nights). And the first new installment looks to be the most violent in ages.

TV This Week: Doctor Who, Ben 10 And Smallville

There's actually a lot of great science fiction TV coming up — unfortunately, it's almost all at the end of the week. Doctor Who returns to the Sci Fi Channel, Ben 10 starts a new series with a more grown-up hero, and Smallville comes back from hiatus with an episode that will change everything.

TV This Week: Say Goodbye To Jericho

Barring a miracle, this week sees the last ever episode of Jericho, the nuked-America show that grew into a masterpiece of paranoia. (Maybe the Sci Fi Channel will discover some extra money laying around that it hasn't spent on Ghost Hunters.) Also this week, Clark takes another huge step towards his super-destiny on … » 3/24/08 9:00am 3/24/08 9:00am

TV This Week: Chief Tyrol Invades Smallville

It's your last chance to get to know Kyle XY this week, and your second-to-last chance to discover Jericho before it goes away, maybe forever. Those both happen to be shows that I really disliked when they started, and they've both grown on me a lot. Meanwhile, Smallville features Chief Tyrol in full crazoid mode, and… » 3/17/08 9:00am 3/17/08 9:00am

TV This Week: Come Back To Smallville!

I'm going to try something a bit different starting with this week's TV column. Instead of just telling you what's on TV and letting you make up your own mind, I'm going to recommend stuff. I'm going to explain to you why Kyle XY really is a better show than you ever realized, and why it's time to give Smallville » 3/10/08 9:00am 3/10/08 9:00am

Is The Truth Out There For SciFi Channel?

Sure, we may tease History Channel's UFO Hunters every Monday when we run down the shows you should watch each week on TV, but elsewhere on the internet, fans are wondering what happened to the SciFi Channel's show of the same name, that debuted on the same day and in the same time slot as the History Channel's… » 2/28/08 8:00am 2/28/08 8:00am
