You’ll remember gorgeous blonde Trica Helfer from “Battlestar Gallactica,” and now she’ll be starring in a new miniseries called “Ascension” on the SyFy network. Check out the trailer above. She still looks hot and the show looks interesting.
Bill Cosby is taking some serious heat in the media these days with all sorts of allegations about his past behavior. In light of that, this old interview with Sofia Vergara looks a little weird. Still, she’s as hot and funny as ever. She handles and deflects Cosby’s antics pretty well, and this also includes a short clip of Sofia dancing as well.
“True Blood” is mercifully coming to an end Sunday night on HBO. The show still features tons of beautiful celebrities and killer sex scenes, but the storylines have become so ridiculous even for a show about vampires.
Still, we’ll miss the great sex scenes, E Online ranked the craziest sex scenes from the show which is worth a read even if it’s set up as the usual, annoying slideshow. We’re partial to anything with the gorgeous Anna Paquin and we’ll pass on the dude scenes.
In looking at the winners and losers of summer TV, Andy Greenwald of Grantland wasn’t too impressed with Halle Berry’s choice:
Berry wasn’t wrong to make the leap from the big screen to the small when she did. She just may have taken too large a jump. By choosing a high-profile project like Extant — executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, airing on CBS, TV’s most-watched network — Berry avoided the sliding scale of eyeballs and influence that allows movie stars to reap the prestige of TV writing without worrying about the responsibility to deliver a blockbuster-size audience. (Matthew McConaughey is now one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but an average first-run airing of True Detective earned about 2.5 million viewers. Decent, but not exactly Interstellar.) Extant — a sort of Rosemary’s Baby in space — started strong both creatively and otherwise, but quickly dimmed. Recent episodes have won their respective nights, but only barely. As its first (and potentially only?) season winds to a close, Extant is averaging nearly the same weekly audience as NBC’s bargain-basement French coproduction Taxi Brooklyn, a show that pulls off the rare feat of misrepresenting both taxis and the borough of Brooklyn. It’s no longer risky for a movie star to work in TV. But when you dive into the deepest end of the pool, you’d better produce a much bigger splash.
He brings up some interesting choice on television roles for stars, and he also points out how binge-watching opportunities can actually dim the buzz around shows like “Orange is the New Black.” It’s a good read . . .
