‘The Incredible Hulk’ Hitchhikes His Way Back Onto Television
Friday, October 15 by

With a glut of raging meatheads populating reality television, it was only a matter of time before that boiled over into scripted shows. Now, taking his rightful place beside his infuriated brothers and sisters from "Jersey Shore," "Amazing Race," and "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" (aka "The Douchebag Olympics"), "The Incredible Hulk" will return to television.
Still in the early phases, we only know that the show will air on ABC. No word yet on who will star. Given that Eric Bana, Edward Norton, Mark Ruffalo, and this Indian dude have all taken the character on for the screen, it's safe to say that someday every actor will have played the Hulk at some point in their career. My recommendation is that they pick an actor and stick with him. We need Hulk consistency. All these new faces are beginning to confuse the baby. (Deadline)

ABC Takes ‘Awkward Family Photos’
Wednesday, October 6 by

How awkward!
ABC has snapped up a sitcom based on the popular website, “Awkward Family Photos,” Variety is reporting. Moses Port and David Guarascio ("Just Shoot Me") are set to write the script, while Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will act as directors and executive producers. The brains behind the site, Mike Bender and Doug Chernack, will also act as executive producers.

“Awkward Family Photos” follows in the footsteps of “$#*! My Dad Says,” another recent sitcom that started out on the web. In related news, I’m currently in talks with ABC to produce “$#*!s My Co-Workers Took,” a movie based on a popular toilet cam I installed during a recent trip to our Chicago office (that’s why I needed the plunger, guys). Of course in this case, “ABC” is a homeless guy who sells bootleg DVDs at the bus stop, not the TV network, but still. It’s a great time to be an Internet writer!

Review: ‘Better With You’
Wednesday, September 15 by

Here’s a surprise of the fall TV season. This family relationship sitcom is actually really funny. I wouldn’t normally be into family bickering and wedding plans and slacker boyfriends and meddling parents and uptight boyfriends. “Better With You” just does it right.

We meet three couples right away. Mia (Joanna Garcia) and Casey (Jake Lacy) are the new lovey dovey duo. Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan) and Ben (Josh Cooke) are the familiar compatible couple. Vicky (Debra Jo Rupp) and Joel (Kurt Fuller) are the long married parents who are over it all.
Nothing new, right? In most sitcoms, these would be annoying stereotypes, but on “Better With You” they’re way more clever. We’ll call it “true.” Each relationship actually demonstrates positive things. There’s humor in any pattern so you can enjoy that without being one of those shows that complains about how relationship play out and how men do things one way and women do them another way.
More after the jump…

‘Paranormal Activity’ Director and ABC Taking Dip In ‘The River’
Friday, September 3 by

Oren Peli, the writer-director of the indie hit Paranormal Activity is looking to get his feet wet in the world of television. Peli is close to landing a deal with ABC to bring his original drama idea "The River" to primetime. According to Deadline, "The River follows the story of a famed adventurer/TV personality who goes missing and is presumed dead deep in the Amazon. His friends and crew go to look for him on their state-of-the-art research vessel." The show would be shot shakey-cam-style (cinema verite to all you elitists) like Paranormal Activity, a trend that's quickly becoming tiresome.
I'm not sure how you make an entire series out of that premise, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm more concerned about this "state-of-the-art" research vessel. Such words make James Cameron's ears ring. If he gets word that people are doing "research" near "water" he could take the whole thing over and turn it into an Omnimax documentary about indigenous jungle wildlife.

The ‘Lost’ Finale: What Did You Think?
Sunday, May 23 by

The final episode of "Lost" has come and gone, and there was no shortage of surprises. Even the most avid fans could not have predicted that Jack was actually Hurley's father, or that the "Dharma Initiative" was nothing more than a marketing ploy for ABC's new series, "Dharma and Greg: The Next Generation."What did you think of the the finale? Were you satisfied, or were you as pissed off as when you found out that Starbuck was an angel?Sound off below. The best comment will receive a black-and-white printout of the Screenjunkies.com logo personally autographed by me, Jame Gumb. It's sure to go up in value once the FBI raids my house and shoots me to death while looking for my cache of bootleg Human Centipede DVDs.

10 Tips For Your ‘Lost’ Finale Party
Friday, May 21 by

Excitement is at a fever pitch for this Sunday's series finale of "Lost." Die-hard fans are planning viewing parties for the big send-off and we're here with some helpful tips and hints for the big event. Follow our instructions to a 'T' and your party will be talked about for years to come.#1. COSTUME IS KEYLike any party, you really should dress to the nines. Anybody can slip on one of Sayid's tanktops or Horace's jumpsuit. There's really only one way to stand out: scarification. This can be achieved with a regular household box-cutter and an ordinary wooden spoon clenched between your teeth. Yes, there will be lasting effects… the lasting effect of everyone talking about how awesome you are.#2. DECORATIONS
