4 Minute Look At Trauma

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, ER, Gossip Girl, Lie To Me, NBC, Trauma on 09/24/2009 at 1:25 pm

Trauma

We’ve got a great little clip of the Trauma pilot here!  Now, we normally do not watch the extended clips of premiere episodes the networks have been releasing this season.  It’s just too much for us – we prefer to wait until the show is airing and we can watch the entire thing.  Not so with Trauma, though, because the series is competing with a handful of other shows on our DVR for a recording slot, so we thought it would be prudent to watch a couple minutes and see if it’s worth the slot.

After watching this four minute clip, we figure we’ll give it a shot for a few weeks.  At first it starts off like most medical dramas: lot’s of yelling “clear!” and even more pushing of “epi”.  That’s only at first though…From there it’s spins on out into ER territory with a crash-boom-bang, lots of quick camera shots and lots of screaming.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Trauma premiers next Monday, September 28th st 9pm on NBC.

Considering that Trauma runs at the same time as Gossip Girl and Lie To Me, do you think it deserves one of the two slots on our DVR?

Gossip Girl

Do you know what a Geor-gina is?  Well, watch and learn.  Here’s a new Gossip Girl trailer from The CW.  The trailer gives us a quick look at Hilary Duff’s guest appearance and what dorm life holds for the incoming NYU class:

The CW twittered another first look photo today, this one featuring Hilary Duff on Gossip Girl.  Duff’s character, Olivia Burke, is a movie star who rooms with Vanessa while attending NYU.  While this photo doesn’t reveal much, there’s been some apparent rumors of Olivia and Lonely Boy being romantically involved.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

And in case you missed it, The CW twittered a first look at Tyra Banks guest starring on Gossip Girl.

The CW just twittered a first look picture of Tyra Banks guest appearance on Gossip Girl.  Her one time guest appearance takes place on the October 5th episode entitled Dan de Fleurette. She’ll star as Ursula Nyquist, an actress Serena will struggle to “control at the premiere of her latest movie”.  No idea why Serena needs to take care of an actress, but I guess we’ll find out on the 5th!

The Beautiful Life: TBL Premieres Tonight

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, 7th Heaven, 90210, Dawsons Creek, Felicity, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Melrose Place, Roswell, The Beautiful Life, The CW on 09/16/2009 at 11:20 am

The Beautiful Life: TBL

While we think the ‘TBL‘ is part of The Beautiful Life: TBL is kinda dumb and we suspect that certain members of the cast would never make it past the first season (assuming there’ll be a second), we’re kinda looking forward to tonight’s premiere of the series.  The CW pulled out the usual stops, nudity included, in promoting the show and even did a pretty good job of keeping Mischa Barton’s meltdown from over-taking the series.  Bravo on that, by the way.

We’ve come to expect nothing less than a staggering level of drama and beautiful people when it comes to The CW’s new scripted series and we’re pretty sure we will not be disapointed  by TBL: TBL (that second TBL is just so unneccesary, right?).  Gone, apparently, are the cutesy days of Gilmore Girls, the high school fun of Roswell, the family friendly 7th Heaven, the angsty era of Felicity and Dawson’s Creek.  No folks, in the late aught’s it’s all about the B-I-T-C-H and the oh snap and the sex appeal.

We’re not complaining…really.  We’re still watching and squealing (silently to ourselves, of course) with joy each time Blair brings a girl to tears.  We’re just a little worried that the bitchy factor may be tipping a little too far, between Gossip Girl, Melrose Place and TBL: TBL.  Oh and 90210.  We don’t watch that one but we assume there’s a bunch of pretty people being nasty to each other on that show, too.

Anyway, here’s a whole bunch of sexy, pretty people being nasty, mean spirited and gorgeous:

Gossip Girl Returns!

In 2009 Fall Season, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Sonic Youth, Teen Soaps, The CW on 09/14/2009 at 12:15 pm

Gossip Girl

Hopefully you caught our One Tree Hill roundup earlier.  We’re now moving on to Gossip Girl!  The CW has been slightly stingy when it comes to promotional trailers for the upcoming third season of the show.  Of course, there’s the slew of WTF trailers they posted to their youtube channel, but not a peep since, unless you count behind the scenes trailers.  We don’t really count them, though as…well, we don’t really like behind the scenes stuff too much here at DVR Life.  We tend to feel like they kind of kill the magic in a whole you don’t know wanna know what’s in that hotdog kinda way.  There was a pretty funny Chuck Bass appearance on Jimmy Fallon the other night, though.

Others news surrounding this season of Gossip Girl has been related to guest appearances and casting, mainly.  We learned that, even though she’s now starring in NBC’s upcoming medical drama Mercy, Michelle Trachtenburg will be making an appearance as Blair’s college dorm-mate.  Blair’s reaction to that news will be beyond priceless, I’m sure.  In the realm of brilliant casting, Firefly‘s Gina Torres has been cast for multiple episodes as Vanessa’s mother.

Gina Tores

Outside of character casting, there’s the gay storyline spoiler floating around and, what we’re most excited about: the awesomeness of a Sonic Youth guest appearance!  The band will be playing their song Starpower off their 1986 album Evol.  This should be even better than their short spot on Gilmore Girls a few years back!

And just in case you needed it, here’s the season three up to speed trailer:

Gossip Girl returns for it’s third season tonight, September 14th at 9pm on The CW.

One Tree Hill Returns!

In 2009 Fall Season, BBC America, British TV, Gossip Girl, Lipstick Jungle, Melrose Place, One Tree Hill, Skins, The CW, Vampire Diaries on 09/14/2009 at 11:08 am

One Tree Hill

The drama returns!  Tonight marks the return of The CW’s Monday night power duo featuring long-runner One Tree Hill and pop-culture phenom Gossip Girl. We hope you’re ready for the all drama: We certainly are!  While BBC’s Skins has been keeping our teen drama levels from sinking too low and The CW’s premieres of Melrose Place and The Vampire Diaires last week were helpful, we’re ready for some good old American-style overload.

One Tree Hill

Let’s get started with a quick One Tree Hill roundup:

First, we were super excited to learn that Skills would be returning to Tree Hill for a seventh season despite Antwon Tanner’s legal issues.  There was also a whole bunch of promotional trailers posted to The CW’s official youtube channel, including the first four minutes of season 7 episode 1.  There were also not one or two, but three really short teasers they released early this summer.  Also, despite the Brian Austin Green tease, we’re excited to have Lipstick Jungle‘s Robert Buckley joining the cast and curious as to how long Shantel VanSanten will be sticking around as Haley’s older sis, Quinn.  And just in case you missed anything, here’s the season 7 up to speed trailer:

And here’s One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn describing a scene entitled 4:30am (Apparently They Were Traveling Abroad).  On a side note, I like knowing that the creator of a show is still around at the seventh season.  That seems so rare!


One Tree Hill returns for it’s seventh season tonight, September 14th at 8pm on The CW.

Chuck Bass Meets Jimmy Fallon

In 2009 Fall Season, Gossip Girl, Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NBC, The CW on 09/10/2009 at 1:15 pm

Chuck's suspenders!

Jimmy Fallon gave his audience a quick hit of what’s to come when The CW’s Gossip Girl returns next week.  With Ed Westwick as a guest for the evening, Fallon debuted a new game entitled “Bass Masters“.  Not sure it’s exactly “sweeping the nation” as was claimed, but it was a fun bit.  Interesting to witness how quickly Westwick slides in and out of his real British accent and his fake lock-jaw UES/WASP accent.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

You can watch last night’s entire episode of Late Night here, if you so desire.  Other highlights include a cell phone shoot-out for prizes and Fallon racing Queen Latifah through the NBC halls on mini-bikes.  Also, if you’re so inclined, you may want to check out a whole slew of Gossip Girl promotional videos we posted last month.

Gossip Girl returns for it’s third season next Monday, September 14th at 9pm on The CW.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 12:35am on NBC.


MTV Imports Skins

In BBC America, British TV, Gossip Girl, Skins, Teen Soaps on 08/26/2009 at 1:23 pm

skins_460

We’re not sure if we should be excited about this or not.  MTV has announced that they’ve secured the rights to produce and broadcast a U.S. version of DVR Life’s favorite teen soap, Skins.  The original brit-com is chock full of kids swearing and having sex and doing drugs – everything actual teenagers do. 

As we’ve said before, the series is about as close as any TV show has come to matching our actual teen years.  That’s a pretty significantly awesome thing in our book.  We’re hesitant at the thought of a U.S. network, burdened by much stricter obscenity laws and dogged by the religious right, remaking the series.

From the moment we first saw Skins on BBC America, it was love at first sight, even with all the edited language and blurred body parts.  Then we wondered when someone would make a U.S. version.  As season one and two ended and an extended haitus came about before they aired season three (which just finally premiere August 6th – still airing each Thursday at 9pm on BBC America), we thought a U.S. version would never happen…And didn’t really mind that much.  The original is so fantastic and, upon months of contemplation, we came to the firm opinion that there was no U.S. network, broadcast, cable or pay, that could do the series justice.

All this time, though, apparently MTV and The CW were battling it out for the rights to create a U.S. version of the series.  Not sure why it took two years for the brits to give the go ahead but I think maybe they made the correct choice.  While The CW is the go-to network for bitchy teen dramas, their limited broadcast hours would force the show into either an 8 or 9pm time slot, which, especially for a broadcast network, would limit how much producers and writers could get away with.

Over at MTV, there’s talk of the new series being broadcast during late night hours, which would free the creative team up a bit.  Their cable status also lends a bit more leeway to the situation.  According to that Live Feed article, the network has other “boundary pushing” scripted fair in the works that the series could be paired with.  Perhaps we’re seeing the birth of a good thing here.  Late night teen dramas sounds like a fascinating option to me and, thinking back to my high school years, would have really liked late night options.

Gossip Girl

If you’re like me, you’re teen drama bank has been pretty full this summer, thanks to Make It Or Break It debuting on ABC Family, and Skins series three finally making it to BBC America. If you’re also like me, though, you’re teen drama bank can never be full enough, so it’s with great excitement that I clicked play on each of these seven (yes! seven) new Gossip Girl teasers from The CW.

What’s new? Georgina’s back (for now)! Blair gets stood up and dissed! Dan kisses Georgina! Joanna Garcia, formerly of CW’s Privileged, joins the show as Bree, Nate’s new girl! Chuck wears some really sharp looking suspenders! Blair loses the headband!

No footage of Hilary Duff yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a leak or two.

Hilary Duff Coming To The Upper East Side

In 2009 Fall Season, Gossip Girl, Teen Soaps, The CW on 07/01/2009 at 1:44 pm

Ausiello just broke the news that Hilary Duff will be joining the cast of Gossip Girl for multiple episodes next season. While the mention of tween stars tend to elicit eye rolling and groans here at DVR Life headquarters, Duff’s guest appearance on Law & Order: SVU last season was…dare we say…surprisingly good. If I recall correctly her character was obscenely annoying and we just wanted to smack some sense into her, which is a pretty good testimonial for Ms. Duff’s acting chops.

Her run begins October 5th, the fourth episode of the teen soap’s third season, as Olivia Burke, a real life movie star attending NYU. According to Ausiello, she’ll be roomies with Vanessa and he’s keeping his fingers crossed for some romance between Olivia and Lonely Boy.

Can’t wait to hear Gossip Girl’s nickname for Olivia. We’re also looking forward to some passive and not so passive aggression towards the actress on Blair’s part. Surely there’ll be jealously flying all over the Upper East Side.

Ausiello says: Mark Pellegrino, who plays Jacob on Lost and Rita’s ex on Dexter, has been cast as Lucifer for Supernatural‘s big apocalypse show down next season while Chris Vance, pretty much the only redeeming quality (in our opinion) of Fox’s one-run summer show Mental will be joining the cast of USA’s Burn Notice for four episodes as an MI5 agent.

Make It Or Break It

In ABC Family, Being Erica, Canadian TV, Flashpoint, Friday Night Lights, Gossip Girl, Make It Or Break It, Summer Schedule on 06/23/2009 at 2:39 pm

Caught last night’s premiere of ABC Family’s newest scripted series Make It Or Break It. Last time I watched the premiere of a scripted series on the network I was pretty much horrified by the blatant born again preaching and swore off the network and it’s shows (the series was The Secret Life of the American Teenager, if you were wondering). Then I started hearing about Greek and how awesome it is and kind of regretting my decision not to watch it (and don’t want to start now without catching up), so I thought I’d at least give the Make It Or Break It pilot a chance before just saying no.

The fact that Slate.com compared it to Friday Night Lights didn’t hurt either.

The series revolves around a group of Olympic hopefuls at a well-to-do, well known training center, Rocky Mountain Gymnastics Center. Things at the center pretty much revolve around three young girls, Payson, Kaylie, and Lauren, who are all a lock to make it to the national competition and, hopefully, continuing to the worldwide games.

But then Emily shows. Emily isn’t as rich as the other girls and she hasn’t been coached all her life. She’s a scholarship case, discovered at a park. She’s wearing leotards off the rack and shows some fear when approaching the vault. Her little brother is in a wheelchair and her mother is unreliable when it comes to keeping a job or picking her up on time.

Despite the cold front from the mean girls, a small case of sabotage, and a job at local the pizza joint featuring stoned customers and a meth head manager, Emily’s got heart and she don’t quit, two ingredients all good family dramas have.

The writing is consistently the highlight of the series. There’s a few good quips here and there, and even some language I was a bit surprised to hear on ABC Family. The acting is acceptable, nothing to praise nor disapprove of, though Cassie Scerbo, acting as Lauren, manages to inflict the perfect rich girl sneer of disapproval. The spoiled brat squeal when things don’t go her way is also pitch perfect. Scerbo also delivered my favorite line of the evening when she describes her teamate Kaylie’s floor excercise routine as “flipping your hair and pulling it out of your ass.”

As for the production, I’m sorry Slate but you are WAY off base with the FNL reference. Perhaps with the story telling aspect, but the acting is very rehearsed, unlike FNL and it’s famous freedom the actors are given. There’s also none of the breath taking camera work or awe-inspiring soundtrack we’ve come to know and expect from this shows’ football-tossing brethren.

The production does have the usual modest budget, filmed in Vancouver or Toronto sort of feel to it. Not that Canadian shows have low quality: check out Being Erica or Flashpoint to dispel that myth. It’s just that U.S. productions that don’t have the highest of budgets tend to move production up north and TV nerds can usually tell. That’s nothing to be ashamed of – many great TV shows rely on this to get renewed come budget-cut time at networks.

Oddly, though, the pilot was reportedly filmed in Los Angeles, Ca., so go figure. Beyond the young girls, the series has also made regular cast members of some recognizable faces, including Peri Gilpin of Frasier, Strong Medicine‘s Rosa Blasi, and, believe it or not, Candace Cameron (now known as Candace Cameron Bure), little sis to 80’s teen hearthrob cum born again christian Kirk Cameron and big sis on Full House.

I’m looking forward to more Make It Or Break It, but I don’t see myself missing the characters like I do the first three or four weeks after the latest season of Friday Night Lights ends, nor do I see myself ever gasping in anticipation or marvelling at the images before me. What I do see is chuckling with delight everytime Lauren releases her inner Bitch (much like I do when Blair on Gossip Girl let’s it fly) or flashing back to crappy food service jobs or cracking a smile when Emily lands that perfect dismount, pissing off the rich kids and wowing the coaches.

Party Of Five: The Original Gossip Girl?

In Gossip Girl, Party of Five, Teen Soaps, Television History on 05/26/2009 at 5:02 pm


Slowly making my way through the entirety of “Party Of Five” and nearing the end, broadcast in the fall of 1999, and what do I come across? The freakin’ original plot of Gossip Girl! Well, sort of. The show is taking place in the very early days of blogs (I can’t recall if they had officially been coined ‘blogs’ yet) and the show takes place not among rich New York teens but average San Francisco teens.

The storyline is really just a subplot in an episode more famously known as Jennifer Love Hewitt’s last episode and a lead-in to her very short lived, very unsuccesful spin-off, “Time Of Your Life”. I’ll bet ya $10 “Gossip Girl” writer Cecily von Ziegesar was tuned in that evening.

The episode, “Bye Bye Love“, was broadcast a mere three years before the first Gossip Girl book was published.

What happens is, Claudia breaks up with her boyfriend an episode or two before and subsequently becomes one of “the cool kids” after her ex serenades the entire school with an amp and guitar in hopes of winning her back. The queen of the “it” crowd latches on to Claudia after realizing they’ve both been cheated on and Julia was strong enough to dump her loser boyfriend and she was not.

Things are going great with Claudia and the cool kids until someone prints out nasty blog entries about each of the group and brings them to lunch. Claudia, the brains of the group quickly figures out who the original GG may be and confronts them in gym class. The blogger then frames Claudia and she’s ostracized!

I’m not gonna give you the whole story. You should check it out yourself. The episode can be found on Youtube in three parts if you want. Here’s part two with the beginning of the GG-like subplot.

The CW Previews

In Gossip Girl, Melrose Place, Preview, The Beautiful Life, The CW, Vampire Diaries on 05/22/2009 at 1:22 am

Vampires, models and beautiful people converging on an apartment complex. Below we have a few clips from each of The CW’s new shows for next season. Also supposedly the Gossip Girl spin-off isn’t totally dead quite yet, which sort of ok, considering last week’s test run on Gossip Girl wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I was glad at the time that the entire episode wasn’t dedicated to the spin off, like some shows do, but even Lilly’s 80’s flashback weren’t half bad.

Gossip Girl Quotes

In Gossip Girl, The CW on 05/05/2009 at 1:49 am

Gossip Girl is a show known for it’s great quips. Tonight’s new episode had a few good ones and I thought I’d share. Next week’s episode will be a flashback to Lilly in her teen years, a way of gauging how well the planned spin off will work. It’s a trick nearly all show runners do when thinking about creating a spin off and, truthfully, they’re usually pretty terrible.

So here’s some quotes to get us through the next two weeks:

“Don’t tell me that hick gave you scabies.” – Blair referring to Gabriel.

“The pregnancy rouse. Cliche but effective. Make sure you arranged the meeting someplace the authorities can surround him. No open spaces.” – Chuck on how to capture Gabriel.

“In other words, she’s a faux-cialite.” – Chuck’s term for a fake socialite.

“I gave up my old ways when I let Jesus take the wheel.”
“That is Carrie Underwood song, not a life choice.” – Georgina on her new life and Blair’s reaction.

“If you cut revenge out of the bible there’s not even enough to make a pamphlet.” – Blair talking Georgina into tricking Poppy.

“Tell Jesus The Bitch is back.” – Georgina telling Blair she’s back to her old ways.

Other highlights include the priceless expression on Blair’s face when Georgina walked in and the ending scene on the precinct steps with Chuck calling his P.I. for dirt on cops, Nate on the phone using his family pull with a judge and Blair arguing with the arresting officers.

The Beginning

In favorite shows, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, introduction, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, The Sopranos, The West Wing, The Wire on 04/12/2009 at 1:16 am

First post. For no reason, of course. This is something to ease into, I suppose.

I watch TV. Alot of it. More than most people. More than is considered healthy.

Favorite shows of all time: Gilmore Girls, The West Wing, Gossip Girl, In Treatment, Friday Night Lights, The Wire, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, The Sopranos.

My viewing habits are all over the place. From teen dramas to cop shows, comedies to night time soaps, you’ll come to find I watch a little of pretty much everything. That “pretty much” is referring to “reality” TV. From this point on I’ll borrow the great words of Aaron Sorkin and use the phrase “illiterate programming” when writing about such drivel.

I never watch anything live. DVR viewing only. As such, when I say “Delayed Blogging (insert TV show)” that means I’m live blogging my thoughts, but watching on a DVR. You’ll see this from time to time.
