See! He Is Stil Alive!

Major ALIAS Two-Parter Beginning Sunday

Quentin Tarantino will make his first appearance on ABC’s ALIAS this Sunday night at 9 pm EST. In the two part episode, entitled “The Box,” Tarantino plays the leader of a rogue organization who takes over SD-6 and holds its members hostage in hopes of exacting revenge on his former boss, Sloane.

With any luck Q’s appearance will save thsi series which has been getting boring of late.

Oh, and also on the show, Sydney (Jennifer Garner) discovers some disturbing news about her mother’s past.

“Roots” Was Not A Gardening Show, But It Did Help Grow Understanding

ROOTS Special This Friday Night

NBC will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the ABC miniseries ROOTS this Friday night at 8 with an hour-long documentary special. ROOTS: CELEBRATING 25 YEARS: THE SAGA OF AN AMERICAN CLASSIC is hosted by LeVar Burton and features interviews with stars Ben Vereen, Richard Roundtree, Ed Asner, as well as assorted celebrities whose lives were affected by the mini.

The only question I have is why ABC isn’t airing the special?

Was It Too Good Too Catch On?

THE TICK Has a Short Life on FOX

As expected by many FOX has announced it won’t order any additional episodes of THE TICK, instead replacing it midseason with the LARRY SANDERS-esque comedy GREG THE BUNNY, starring Eugene Levy, Seth Green, and Sarah Silverman.

Alas Tick, we hardly knew ye. But what we knew we liked.

It’s Back! Finally!

THE JOB Returns This Week on ABC

THE JOB returns to ABC’s line-up this Wednesday night at 9:30 pm EST. The offbeat dramedy’s second season premiere finds McNeil (Denis Leary) and Pip (Bill Nunn) assigned to take the District Attorney’s twelve-year-old daughter on a ride-along for her school paper.

This was one of the best shows on TV last year so hopefully this season is just as good. But can it be? We’ll know at 10 pm EST on Wednesday!
