Chuck – Season 1 – Episode 7 – Chuck Versus the Alma Mater

Important Moments:

The episode opens with some technology that explains a little bit about how the intersect works, explaining how Chuck could end up with it as a result of an e-mail. In the same scene, we find out that a Stanford professor has some sort of secret information, and he made a mistake with it, resulting in some tough looking guy showing up at his office. We find out later that the professor was a former professor of Chuck’s from when he was attending Stanford, and was the professor that kicked him out of school.

Chuck flashes on himself, and find out he is in the Intersect. Casey and Sarah have no idea why he is in it.

Chuck has a flashback to the moment when he was accused of not only cheating on the exam, but also selling copies of the tests from an anonymous tip from a student. (Bryce! So mean!) The moment is kind of heartbreaking. However, it also leads Chuck to realize what the numbers from the professor mean.
<!–more–>

Coolest Action Sequences/Chuck Accidentally Saves the Day:

This time Chuck saves the day on purpose, so major credit for that, as he thinks quickly and calls all the CIA agents that are on a cd list to help Sarah and Casey, who have been surrounded in a classroom at Stanford.

Weirdest Moment:

Chuck and Morgan are in the break room and Tang, their boss, walks in. He tells Morgan that he’s soft like pudding, then pokes Morgan’s stomach and sucks on his finger as if he just dipped it in pudding. Um, weird, and also – disgusting.

Notable Guest Star:

Matt Bomer is back as Bryce Larson, first showing up as Chuck flashes back to the day he left Stanford, where Bryce is incredibly cold to him.

Chuck has another flashback of him and Bryce playing rubber dart tag (?) in the library, and it’s a fun scene, with undertones hinting at what Bryce did when he tricks Chuck into losing.

Best Moments:

While it’s also an important moment, the scene when Chuck watches the meeting between Bryce and the professor, and Chuck finds out the Bryce framed him for cheating to save him is an amazing scene. Chuck finds out that his best friend didn’t actually betray him, after all those years of feeling so bad about it, and he can’t even talk to Bryce about it now. (Or so he thinks…)

The show ends with Chuck picking the photo of him and Bryce out of the dumpster and having a flashback to a happier memory of his friendship with Bryce – the day they met at Stanford, when Bryce (Matt Bomer at his most likeable best) shared his enthusiasm for video games and introduced Chuck to Jill, who would become his girlfriend.

Awesome Soundtrack Moment:

Chuck is looking through some of his old Stanford stuff to “Don’t Look Back In Anger” by Oasis. The episode later bookends with the same song playing as Chuck flashes back to a memory of Bryce that now has a more positive viewpoint.

Analysis:

This is the first episode where both Chuck and the audience see that so much of what Chuck has based his beliefs and ideology on is untrue. His nemesis is really his friend, and later much of what he knows about the Intersect and his parents go through similar transformations. These moments showcase that Chuck is not a bitter person and doesn’t hold a grudge. He’s very understanding and quick to forgive.

Best Lines:

“It says here the crossbow is his weapon of choice.” – Sarah
“Oh what, slingshot too ineffective?” – Chuck

“He could have an accident. I’m just saying, I know a guy, very reasonable.” – Anna

“I know, I know, stay in the car.” – Chuck

“I swear, this school has it in for me.” – Chuck

White Collar – Season 1 – Episode 3 – Book of Hours

Important Moments:

Agent Jones and Cruz are watching a bookmaker named Borelli from the van, when he walks over to the van and asks the FBI to help them recover a bible. Borelli says the bible is from medieval Naples.

Mozzie tells Neal that the bible is famous for its healing powers.

Neal has the idea to look for a true believer. They go to the church and find out that a homeless man, Steve, with a sick dog had stayed in the church. When they ask him about the bible, he openly admits to taking it. He needed it for his dog, Lucy, who is sick. It turns out that Borelli’s nephew hired Steve to take the bible.

When Borelli’s nephew turns up dead, the detective on the case, Ruiz, doesn’t want Neal involved so they get taken off the case. Peter tells Neal pointedly that he can’t do anything. Neal then says he’s a bit chilly and asks to borrow Peter’s FBI jacket.

Mozzie and Neal turn up a woman named Maria Fiametta, who is an art historian.

Peter suggests that Neal convince Maria that he’s pliable and might be willing to steal the bible. Elizabeth suggests just asking her out. <!–more–>

Neal does and everything goes according to plan, sort of. She joins with him to steal the bible, but she knows they’ve bugged her, and she double crosses Neal. He’s holding the bible in front of him so that if she shoots him she has to shoot the bible. She does anyway. The bible stops the bullet and Neal’s fine.

Peter asks for the bible back. Neal says he already gave it to “some FBI guy.” He gave it to Mozzie to bring to Steve to use to help Lucy. When Borelli shows up, he offers to take Lucy to his vet.

Kate Saga:

Neal is just staring at the wine bottle. It’s a little pathetic, which Mozzie tells him.

Notable Guest Stars:

Kirk Acevedo from Fringe and 12 Monkeys guest stars as Detective Ruiz.

Best Quotes:

“He thinks I’m swabbing toilets. I figure we’ve got about 10 minutes until he gets curious.” – Mozzie
“Why, is that the standard toilet swabbing time?” – Neal

Timeless Producer & Writer Arika Lisanne Mittman Talks the Writer’s Room & Behind the Scenes on Twitter

Arika Lisanne Mittman did a Q & A on Twitter today, where she answered fan questions about the show. The questions are all compiled here for fan convenience.

Lucy, Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Wyatt, Timeless, Rufus

Question: In the Pilot, Connor Mason calls the Lifeboat “Our earliest prototype.” Could there be other models of unfinished time machines sitting in storage somewhere? Attempts between the Lifeboat and the Mothership.

Arika Lisanne Mittman: There could have been… but I would say if they had them, they probably blew up when Mason Industries exploded…

Question: Does someone oversee script versus what we see on screen? I’ve loved the scripts! What we see on screen is sometimes different. Who decides what ends up on screen? And do on screen changes ever contradict writer intent?

Mittman: Great question. On Timeless the episode writer is on set, so if the actors or director want to change something, they can come to us and suggest a change or we work together collaboratively to adjust it. So everything you see even if it’s changed on set is writer-approved…

Question: Going into season 2 did you know you guys know you were always going to end the season with Wyatt telling Lucy he loved her? Did you ever contemplate having them exchange I love yous in 2.03? <!–more–>

Mittman: Nope. That was a late addition. It just seemed right (maybe because the timing was so wrong!) to bookend ep 2.01 where Rufus told Wyatt to tell her… I don’t recall talking about it for 2.03, but personally I think it would have been too early!

Question: When did Wyatt know that he is in love with Lucy?

Mittman: Hmmm! I don’t know if there’s a definitive answer but personally, I would say he realized it on some level when they kissed in Bonnie & Clyde. But I don’t think he was prepared to deal with it then because he was still reeling from having lost Jessica.

Question: The name “Garcia Flynn” (especially since his brother is Gabriel and it’s a time travel show) – a subtle reference to Gabriel Garcia Marquez and 100 Years of Solitude? I’ve always wondered where his name came from.

Mittman: Ya know, I’m not 100% sure of that one, maybe @therealKripke can answer that…

Question: Can you tell us why we didn’t get to see Wyatt’s inner conflict with Jess vs. Lucy – like him talking it out with Rufus? I would’ve liked to know how he was feeling about it all.

Mittman: Time & space. Wish we had more time & more episodes! You’re right, it would’ve been great to have more of that!

Question: In the Atomic City episode, did Anthony break the rules by traveling into a time when he (presumably) existed? (I’m going off Matt F’s real age at least). I’m trying to think if we saw him suffering any consequences?

Mittman: Anthony was in the time travel business for a long time… who knows how long he spent in any other given time periods? Like Emma, he may have been born later than one might think…

Question: How much debate takes place when you are all working on an episode? I would imagine with so many “cooks in the kitchen” that people have different opinions about character choices, development, etc. Just curious about how those conversations unfold – sounds like fun!

Mittman: That’s the best thing about a writer’s room. LOTS of debate. WE have a diverse room in so many ways, so so many ideas – if we can’t agree the episode’s writer makes the call and @TomSmuts, myself and @ShawnRyanTV & @therealKripke approve. And YES it is fun.

Question: Here’s kind of a wobbly wobbly time travel question: if the time team goes back in time to kill any member of Lucy’s family, she would survive as a time ghost, yes? Would another Rittenhouse family line take her place? Are there other family lines?

Mittman: She would exist (assuming she was on the mission at the time) but would have no identity, no family, no one outside of the mission would know who she was. As to what would happen to Rittenhouse, that’s hard to predict, isn’t it?

Question: I heard that you guys wrote in Lucy’s clumsiness because of Abigail’s natural clumsiness. Are there any other of the actors quirks that inspired you guys, that you wrote it in for their characters too? (Lucy’s clumsiness is my favorite thing)

Mittman: We love that about @abigailspencer too. 🙂 We write @ignatius_sancho’s british-isms into the script. @malcolmbarrett’s natural humor… I think in a lot of ways we started writing to the actors more in general as we got to know them.

Question: Are there any historical figures that you’re dying to write an episode around? I have a wishlist myself so I’m curious!

Mittman: YES! So. Many. Too many to name. But generally speaking I would like to get even more diverse. Latina people in history, trans people in history, people with disabilities…

Question: How long is the process to make one episode?

Mittman: To film it? We shoot each episode in 8-10 days. It’s supposed to be 8 plus a “double up” day (where we shoot 2 eps at once) but we do sometimes have to pick a few scenes up later…

Question: What were the “production difficulties” that led to the swimming pool scene being cut? I’ve read that it was very smoky when that scene was filmed – was that part of it?

Mittman: Fires, smoke, terrible wind and running out the clock of how long we could shoot, at like 5 in the morning!!

Question: Does it mean anything that the Mothership made 10 trips before S2, but 2.04 and 2.10 didn’t have sleepers? Was there a purpose behind those two extra trips?

Mittman: They could have dropped off any number of sleepers on those 10 trips. By the time we find the Sleepers they’ve been there a while so the 10 trips do not correspond necessarily to 10 episodes. Also, Emma made trips to eliminate Amy forever.

Question: Is Flynn’s wedding ring meant to represent his commitment to his family and getting them back? I’ve noticed he never takes it off – and the show has humanized him in such a way that I really, really hope he gets to save his wife and child.

Mittman: I don’t think this was scripted, I believe it was a beautiful actor choice by the talented@goranvisnjic. I would say, if I had to guess, it was always there to remind him what he’s doing all of this for, like Lucy’s locket.

Question: Was Hedy’s reveal of the sleeper in Hollywoodland always going to be that he’s working on a dinosaur picture he calls Jurassic Park? Her hairstyle changed between shots. Thought this might have been cut later.

Mittman: There WAS some piece that got re-shot but it wasn’t for that – I can’t remember why we had to reshoot it but I think it was technical reasons… Yes, it was always Jurassic Park in the script.

Question: When Jess was brought back, she said that Wyatt had cheated on her during their marriage. Even if he doesn’t remember, does the timeline change mean that he did it, or is it some other version of him who was displaced when he got off the Lifeboat at the end of Hollywoodland?

Mittman: History changed. Jessica was alive for the past 5 years instead of dead so wyatt has no idea what he did in the new timeline. But he still ended up on the mission and in the bunker. There wasn’t any other Wyatt running around to displace, he just doesn’t remember those years.

Question: Lucy steps in to break up the fight between Wyatt & Flynn. It appeared she was hit by accident. Can you tell us the thought process behind this choice?

Mittman: Really don’t want to go into the shipping war over this but YES, of course it was an accident! Really not sure how it could have been read any other way, but yes, the script says “accidentally.”

Question: Also, Lucy must be a descendant of John Rittenhouse, right? The deleted scene from 2.01 said she was a descendant of David Rittenhouse.

Mittman: Yep.

Question: How did Garcia recruit his henchman before he raided Mason Industries to steal the Mothership? Friends? Military buddies? Trusted associates from the NSA? How did he fund his mission?

Mittman: We actually discussed this a lot in the room. We think they were a mix of fellow trusted agents, true believers in his cause, and paid mercenaries. There’s always a way to get $$ when you have a time machine. Open a bank account in 1955… sports team bets…

Supernatural – Season 1 – Episode 3 – Dead In the Water

Dean Winchester, Jensen Ackles, Supernatural

Supernatural – Season 1 – Episode 3 – Dead In the Water

Dean comes upon a story about people who have disappeared in a lake and the families have buried empty coffins for closure because the bodies were never found.  They think it could be a case so they head to Wisconsin.

Important Moments:

Sam and Dean go to visit the family of the most recent drowning, the Carlton’s, and the drowning victim’s brother tells them that his sister didn’t drown, but was dragged under. She was a varsity swimmer and the brother insists that there is no way she would have drowned.

Looking at old newspaper accounts of the lake drownings, the brothers find that the sheriff’s daughter, Andrea, has a son named Lucas who saw his father drown in the lake, making him the only eye-witness they know of regarding whatever is happening in the lake. They go to talk to Lucas and after Dean talks to him, Lucas gives Dean a drawing.

Will Carlton, the brother of the girl who drowned in the beginning of the episode, dies by drowning in the kitchen sink and the brothers realize that whatever is in the water can go through the pipes, which means it can get to anyone, anywhere.  They also realize most of the recent victims have a connection to Bill Carlton.  As the brothers are leaving the Carlton house, Dean realizes the front of the house matches the drawing that Lucas gave him. <!–more–>

“Losing him, it’s worse than dying” is said by Bill Carlton and then by another woman who had a son, Peter, who also disappeared.  Peter turns out to have been friends with Bill Carlton.

Bill Carlton is talking to the lake, saying he thinks he finally knows what “you want.” Sam and Dean think Peter might be trying to get revenge for something that Bill Carlton did.  They go to his house and find him out on a boat.  They try to get him to come back to shore, but his boat just goes flying into the air and Bill completely disappears.

The brothers leave town under threat of arrest from the sheriff, but Dean decides to turn around to make sure Lucas is okay.  During that time, Andrea decides to take a bath and the lake monster pulls her under. The brothers arrive at the house just in time to pull her out of the bathtub.

Sam and Dean find an old photo of a Boy Scout troop and both Bill Carlton and Sheriff Jake Barr are in the picture.  Lucas then looks outside as if something is there.  He goes out the door and Sam, Dean and Andrea follow him.  He stops at a spot in the grass.  Sam and Dean dig it up, figuring that’s where Peter is buried, but instead they find Peter’s bike.  Sheriff Jake Barr shows up and pulls a gun on them.  After an argument, he confesses that Peter was killed accidentally when they were playing (dangerously!) and pretending to drown Peter and accidentally held him under water for too long.

Lucas goes near the lake and is pulled in.  Sam and Dean jump in but can’t find him.  Jake walks into the lake, asking Peter to take him instead of Lucas.  Jake is then pulled under by the creepy dead boy, and then Dean finds Lucas, who is unconscious, but alive.

Best Moments:

In the last scene, Dean is talking to Lucas and he tells him that if he’s going to be talking again, there’s a very important phrase.  Dean asks Lucas to repeat it back to him and he says, “Zepplin rules!”

Dean’s Family Moments:

Dean and Sam get into it about the search for their father from their very first scene, where Sam is concerned they aren’t doing enough to find their father, and Dean gets mad at him for saying it, bringing up the time Sam had spent at college while Dean had been with their father.

After hearing what Dean said to Lucas about losing his mother as a child, Sam says Dean never told him that and they have a bonding moment.

Great Performance:

Jensen Ackles gives a great performance in the scenes where he talks to the little boy.  He basically has to carry relatively emotional scenes all on his own, and he does a great job with just vocal inflection and facial expressions.

Ghost Story of the Week:

A creature is pulling people underwater in a lake, drowning them.  The bodies are never found.

Super Creepy Moment:

 

 

 

 

Lucas goes to get a toy action figure out of the lake and a hand grabs him and pulls him under.  Jake Barr runs toward the lake with everyone else, and the dead boy, Peter, surfaces to look at Jake, who killed him.  Very creepy!

State of the Week:

Wisconsin

Notable Guest Stars:

Amy Acker, from Angel, Person of Interest, and The Gifted, appears as Andrea.

Notable Music Moments:

Movin’ On by Bad Company plays as Sam and Dean drive away.

Best Lines:

“We will find Dad, but until then, we’re gonna kill everything bad between here and there.” – Dean

“It must be hard, with your sense of direction, never being able to find your way to a decent pick up line.” – Andrea

“Oh God, we’re not going to have to hug or anything, are we?” – Dean

Chuck – Season 1 – Episode 2 – Chuck Versus the Helicopter

Best Moments:

Chuck and Casey are running through the parking lot, appearing to be doing something important, and then Casey tackles the bad guy and Chuck has to stop him as it turns out it’s just a shop lifter.

The entire episode, Casey is making Chuck afraid of Sarah, while at the same time, Sarah is making Chuck afraid of Casey.

Casey has a story where Sarah worked with Bryce (Matt Bomer!) and since he was rogue, she might be rogue, too. Casey showing up stopped her from getting the intersect from Chuck, and just as his story is starting to sound plausible, the phone rings, but it’s neither of their phones. “NSA incinerator! Run!” Chuck shouts as they both run out of the car for cover. They stop and nothing happens. Casey is looking at Chuck likes he is an idiot, when all of a sudden…BOOM!

Casey shows up for the meet the girlfriend dinner. Casey and Sarah spend the entire meal giving each other looks of suspicion. Chuck just acts incredibly awkward.
<!–more–>

Important Moments:

It turns out that Dr. Zarnov, the episode’s villain, didn’t die in a car accident, but is actually evil. He kidnaps Sarah and they head to the Buy More for the big showdown of the episode, something all fans know is a regular occurrence, though in this episode it happens to just be Morgan, not Sarah, who has been kidnapped. Moving on…

In trying to save Sarah, Chuck manages to get kidnapped and then accidentally tranquilizes the pilot. A fight ensues and Chuck has to land the helicopter the doctor was trying to make his getaway in.

Chuck wears his dad’s suit to go to Bryce’s funeral.

General Beckman, Chuck, Sarah, and Casey’s government liaison, says the new intersect will be up and running in six months and then Casey would “do what you do best,” which is killing. Uh-oh!

Coolest Action Sequence/Chuck Accidentally Saves the Day:

Sarah and Casey fight in the Weinerlicious, and Sarah uses shishkabob sticks and a mop as a weapon, while Casey uses a plastic fork and a chair.

Best Lines:

“Our most valuable secrets have been sent to an idiot.” – General Beckman
“At least they weren’t sent to his friend.” – reply to General Beckman

“Oh my god! Is she okay?” – Chuck, responding to Casey telling him that Sarah tried to kill him.

“WAIT?” – Chuck, every five seconds after he has the flash about Sarah poisoning people at a dinner.

“I have a strong aversion to needles.” – Chuck
“Do it!” – Casey

“I laced my quiches with microbots.” – Casey
“You’re not kidding, are you?” – Chuck
“I don’t kid about quiche.” – Casey

Emma Stone Talks to First Showing About ‘La La Land’

The complete article:
Emma Stone, Interview
“I feel very excited as of late for what’s to come, whether it works or not.” I can’t say enough how much I adore Damien Chazelle’s musical La La Land. It’s an exhilarating cinematic experience, full of so much joy and happiness, along with superb dancing and exuberant singing and beautiful sets and gorgeous sunsets. Aside from Ryan Gosling, the other co-star of La La Land is Emma Stone. Her first big break out role was playing Jules in Superbad back in 2007, and over the nearly 10 years since she’s earned an Academy Award nomination (for Birdman) and worked with some of the best filmmakers around. I was lucky to spend 15 minutes chatting with Emma about her career and her work on La La Land and it was an absolute delight.

I met Emma at the Telluride Film Festival only days after La La Land had premiered there (and at the Venice Film Festival). I fell head over heels for La La Land at Telluride, writing in my glowing review that “I want everyone else to witness this grand accomplishment and feel as inspired and as amazed by it as I am.” Stone is wonderful in the film, and I am glad I had a few minutes to talk with her about it. She seemed more nervous than I was in the interview, at one point joking that “this could be [her] worst interview ever.” We laughed it off. I asked at the end “aren’t you an expert at interviews now?” She responded: “No… I’m the opposite.” Nevertheless, she was as charming as ever and did her best to answer my questions. Let’s begin…

First Showing: Are you where you want to be in your career now? Are you where you felt like you would be?

Emma Stone: Yes. I guess, yes. Yeah, I feel really excited and reinvigorated – I guess is the word for it. I got to do Cabaret and that’s set on stage in New York and that reset my brain in the craziest way. It was so amazing. And then I did La La and then I did this movie, The Battle of the Sexes, the tennis movie I was telling you about. And it’s been just an amazing past year and a half on those three projects. And it’s been really, really – it’s gotten me so excited about everything. Not that I wasn’t before, but I feel reinvigorated.

FS: Do you have more of a chance to do what you want nowadays?

Emma: I think I’m clearer on what that is nowadays. So I don’t know if it’s a more of a chance or just more of – I think things are easier when you’re clearer on the kind of experience you want to have and not as… Maybe at certain points I felt like, of course, I should attempt something because of a variety of factors. And now I feel a little more aware of a sense of what I might be able to bring to the table, rather than the outside coming in. Maybe that’s maturity. Or maybe I just was a late bloomer. I don’t know what it is. Continue reading

James Marsters Talks to the Miami Herald About ‘Buffy’

The complete article:
James Marsters
Actor James Marsters has always liked going to comic conventions. At 13, he even went dressed as a Vulcan, “gutting it out,” he jokes, when such a thing wasn’t even close to cool.
“What I found was a place where everyone was beautiful and safe and you could be whoever you wanted to be,” says the man who was Spike, the vampire on Buffy the Vampire Slayer who fell in love with the hero he was trying to kill. “I felt love. There’s a high amount of tolerance for diversity. People at a con are not protecting themselves with cellphones. They’ll take one out to take pictures, but that’s it. Most places I go, people have their heads down staring at their screens. It’s kind of nice to be where there are hundreds of people just being together.”

These days, Marsters, 54, sees conventions from the other side. He’s one of the guests this weekend at the Paradise City Comic Con at the Broward County Convention Center, along with Billy Dee Williams (The Empire Strikes Back), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and celebrities from shows and movies like Star Trek and Sharknado, anime artists, comic book authors and anybody who likes a bracing dose of cosplay.
