This is my favorite show on CBS. It has a nice mixture of a serialized drama and a high tech procedural. There truly is not a television show like this on the air right now and last week, it returned with a bang, literally, as it picked up directly as we left it — with Finch (Michael Emerson) having been kidnapped by Root (Amy Acker), forcing Reese (Jim Caviezel) to search for his only friend in the world. The second episode of the new season finds the show leaving the comfort of New York City for the ruffle and tumble Texan terrain in its first episode set outside of the Big Apple. This episode will feature guest star Margo Martindale (Justified) as a woman from Root’s past.

Person of Interest is a show that is at the top of its game. Since its premiere the series has not missed a beat, keeping up the mystery and intrigue without bogging itself down by a mythology too complex for its own good. Guided by the vision of Jonathan Nolan (Chris Nolan’s baby brother and co-writer of a number of Nolan’s films) this is a show that proves there is still life in the broadcast engine. It is a must watch show and the best scripted drama that CBS currently airs.

Official Description, “Bad Code”: A cold case lands Resse closer to finding Finch and his kidnapper.

The episode airs at 9pm on CBS. What else is on tonight? Lets see…

Here at My Hollywood Dream we like to cover as much of Hollywood and the world of entertainment that we can (minus the ugly gossip). With that I welcome you to another edition of The Pit – Fall into it.

  • Queen-Geek and Dr. Horrible love interest Felicia Day is expanding her work online with a new web series that adapts the popular RPG series Dragon Age. It’ll be very cool to see Day, who stars and produces the video game related series The Guild, step into full on fantasy mode with Dragon Age: Redemption. The series takes place in an unspecified time in the ten year time span of the new entry into the fantasy game series, Dragon Age 2. The actual episodes fall in the six to nine minute range, which is very common for web shows, who viewers usually have a rather short attention span.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker wants to make a third Sex and the City movie. Thankfully no one else wants to.
  • Michael Emerson, Lost‘s creepy Ben, has been cast in a new pilot for JJ Abrams. Person of Interest sees him as a mysterious (wouldn’t have it any other way with Emerson) billionaire who teams up with an ex-CIA agent who is thought to be dead to stop violent crimes in New York City. No word on who will be the ex-CIA agent. If picked up, the show would be heading to CBS.
  • There is a Facebook event page promoting February 21st as “Send a Naked picture of yourself to Steve Buscemi Day” showing us that there is a Facebook page for just about anything. I’m so disturbed by the group that no, I will not post a link here. You’ll have to actually search for that yourself.
  • In another bit of TV casting new, Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek will be portraying… James Van Der Beek in the ABC pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23. In the series he’d be an over the top version of himself, much in the vein of Neil Patrick Harris’ hysterical performance in the original Harold & Kumar (the sequel is best left forgotten).

Excited about Day’s new series? More interested in another Sex in the City sequel? How long do you think the Beek’s new series will last?

Welcome to another edition of The Pit. Lots of stuff is happening in the world of entertainment, here is a sampling.

  • The good news? Damages (one of the best shows on TV) has been renewed for two more seasons! The bad news? It will only be shown on Direct TV. I’ll have to wait for DVD to see the new seasons. But on the plus side, I usually let Damages episodes build on Tivo and watch them back to back anyway.
  • EW has a first look at the Lost DVD short that focuses on Hurley and Ben’s time running the island after the finale. Check it out here. I can’t wait for the DVD box set and this short film. So excited for even just a little bit more of Lost!
  • OMFG! Lindsay Lohan begins her jail time today… Really, who the F cares? *rolls eyes*
  • In another eye rolling story, the talentless cast of Jersey Shore is threatening to strike days before they are supposed to begin shooting their third season. It looks like MTV is going to give them huge raises to stay on the show, instead of doing the smart thing and replacing them all. I can’t wait until the world gets past the “being an a-hole” makes you a celebrity phase.
  • Have you checked out A&E network’s The Glades? The new series follows Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, a homicide detective from Chicago who relocates to the sleepy middle of nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida. While it appears like a easy/low key job, murders begin popping which forces detective Longworth to prove his worth. If you missed it’s premiere, it has been added to 141tv’s Free Video Guide.
  • There is a new trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife. This one gives us a better idea of the story and a ton of different versions of Milla. This movie is going to be so epic-ly bad that it will be awesome! Check out the film’s poster and first trailer here.

ABC, Lost, Ben

The end has arrived.  I’m excited, worried, perplexed, elated, anxious, happpy, (etc/every emotion possible) about the Lost series finale. ABC starts the festivities at 7pm with 2 hours of series recap, then the finale starts at 9pm and goes on for two and a half hours. I’ll be signing off the Internet after this post, shutting off my phone, and will be watching the finale live. Come back with your thoughts, and after a few days and at least one rewatching, I will hopefully be able to post mine. Enjoy!


Tonight at 9pm on ABC is an all new episode of Lost. With only three episodes to go, you don’t want to miss a thing… or check out previews (in case of spoilers). I’m still a bit shaken after the last episode, but I’m ready to move forward, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for us in the all new episode.

Also new on tonight:


  • CBS: NCIS (Crime Drama)
  • NBC: Biggest Loser: Couples (Reality)
  • CW: 90210 (90s Teen Drama Remake)


  • CBS: NCIS: Los Angeles (Crime Drama)
  • FOX: Glee (Musical Teen Drama… and f-ing awesome)


  • ABC: V (Sci-Fi Drama)
  • CBS: The Good Wife (Legal Drama)
  • NBC: Parenthood (Family Drama)
  • COMEDY: Sit Down, Shut Up (Animation)
  • FX: Justified (Badass Modern Western)
  • SYFY: WWE NXT (Wrestling Reality)
  • SPIKE: Deadliest Warrior (Docu)
  • USA: Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Crime Drama… 100% more Jeff Goldblum than the others)

ABC, Lost, Ben

Tonight is the two hour season finale of Lost. I am completely avoiding TV listings, previews, and the like to stay completely spoiler free going into it. Enjoy the show and don’t forget to come back and post your thoughts on it later tonight!

tv tonight abc, scrubs, lost

Your best best tonight is to put on ABC and leave it on. At 8pm we have the finale of Scrubs followed by a new Lost at 9pm.

For Scrubs, notice how I didn’t say series finale? Well, ABC hasn’t been saying it either in any of its advertising, which leads me to believe that the rumors of another season are true. As much as I love the current cast, I can picture the series continuing with new faces. If dramas like Law & Order and ER can do it, why can’t creative comedies? The writers got us to love these characters, why is to say that they can’t do that with a new round of doctors? In tonight’s episode, J.D. bids goodbye to Sacred Heart. But before he goes he wants to A) get a hug from Dr. Cox, and B) learn the Janitor’s name. You know what? I want to see those things also.

After Scrubs, hold on to your butt for the new episode of Lost. Last episode (spoiler) tragically took the life of Daniel Faraday, but not before he was able to figure out how to change the future.  Tonight, Jack and Kate struggle and fight over what to do next; risk killing everyone on the island to change the future or just let it happen…

Also on tonight (not that it really matters)…
