For all the TV we watch, we inevitably recognize that not all of it is easy to track down. Pay-cable series dominate much of the casual conversation, yet relatively few subscribe to the services when entertainment comes for free on the major networks, or even cheaply with basic cable. So how are we to catch up on the latest 'Game of Thrones' or 'Dexter,' without waiting for DVDs or expensive services? With completely illegal and in-no-way-recommended piracy, of course! So what were the most pirated TV shows of 2012?
For as much as 'House' fans bemoaned longtime series star Lisa Edelstein's exit from the series, and exclusion from the FOX drama's final season, we've been equally glad to see the actress popping up all across the tube lately, from 'The Good Wife' to 'Elementary.' The latest stop on Edelstein's rebound tour is a 'House' of a different sort, heading over to pay-cable for Showtime's 'House of Lies!' But who might the sexy ex-Cuddy play?
NBC's standing is definitely on the rise, following their first November sweeps week in nearly a decade, and an impressive array of hour-long dramas in development. Not only have we been following Bryan Fuller's 'Hannibal' and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers' 'Dracula' series, but also kept a weather eye on the horizon for upcoming pirate drama 'Crossbones!' With a ten episode order in place, what former 'House' star might be man enough to step into the boots of the legendary Blackbeard? Why, House himself, Hugh Laurie of course!
Doctor, Doctor, give us the news! 'Falling Skies' has a bad case of loving you! Terrible jokes notwithstanding, fans of TNT's sci-fi actioner 'Falling Skies' know that Sunday's finale "A More Perfect Union" certainly ended on a resounding "WTF," but that isn't stopping the Spielberg-produced drama from landing yet another season next summer. Shooting has already begun on 'Falling Skies' season 3, but what famous on-screen doctors will join the fray, and why do they seem so familiar to Noah Wyle?
‘House’ season 8 and the series at large wraps up its swan song in series finale "Everybody Dies." Last week’s ‘House’ “Holding On” saw Dr. Gregory House on the verge of collapse with the prospect of his best friend's death hanging in the balance and prison time awaiting, so what will the finale bring? Does it wrap everything up in a nice little package, or present like Lupus?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about the ‘House’ series finale “Everybody Dies!”
At this point I'm starting to wonder if FOX even filmed a 'House' series finale, or if in fact the May 21 swan song "Everybody Dies" will simply consist of previous 'House' footage stitched together, with Hugh Laurie digitally added for witty one-liners and acerbic retort. It worked for 'Airwolf,' so why not here? But whatever you believe, it seems that the good doctor's final outing has picked up yet another previously departed 'House' alumni.
Sadly, we'll soon have reached an age in which Dr. Gregory 'House' has retired from the limelight, and eight years of acerbic medical drama will have sailed off into the sunset. But before we do, you'd better believe we're getting some good guest stars, right?! So with more than a few past cast members set to return, which reprisal aren't you expecting?
With its eighth season and series finale coming up in just a few weeks, information about the final episodes of 'House' is gushing forth like a nicked artery. Lisa Edelstein may not return, but Olivia Wilde will show her face and we'll cap off the ultimate bromance that is House and Wilson, but how can you contribute?
Well, we 'House' Fans might not get any closure on relationship between House and Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) before the series closes its doors for good, but at least we'll have lucky number Thirteen!
Sadly, TV can be a pretty heartbreaking business sometimes. Characters get killed off, or put on a figurative (sometimes literal) bus because of budget and schedule constraints, and all-too often stories suffer from external forces well-beyond their control.
'House' fans were shocked and disappointed to find out that series staple Lisa Edelstein wouldn't reprise her role as Dr. Lisa Cuddy for the eighth season of the show, the character having been written out after Dr. Gregory House finally crossed the line by driving his car through her (no-pun intended) house's wall.
Well, get ready for a bit more bad news, 'House' fans.
