HEROES
Will there be a Heroes Miniseries? Heroes creator Tim Kring spoke with TV Guide to address the rumors. Tim Kring answers the questions: Will Heroes continue as a miniseries? If Heroes were a miniseries, where would it begin? …and… Is Nathan really dead or is there a chance he could be brought back to life? Watch the interview here.

I would love for the show to continue as a miniseries, television movie or web series, either way would be great. There are endless amounts of stories that could be told in the Heroes universe. What I would do is every month have a short web series, say 5-10 five minute episodes focusing on single characters. Then at the end of the year have a miniseries that connects all those web episodes.

LOPEZ TONIGHT
Monday night on Lopez Tonight, George Lopez went through his twitter comments. He went on to make jokes on the nerds who go to Comic Con, Snookie being arrested, Justin Beiber, and ended with Vanilla Ice singing his “classic” hit Ice Ice Baby. Vanilla Ice is at about the 4:30 mark in the video, located here. Lopez Tonight airs nightly at 11pm/10c on TBS.

After reading about the new shows coming to NBC this fall, there was only one new show that really caught my eye, The Cape. I  watched all the trailers for NBC’s new shows and it really is the only one that I want to see.

“The Cape” is a one-hour drama series starring David Lyons (“ER”) as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, “Life on Mars”) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, “Flash Forward”). Fueled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Vince Faraday becomes “The Cape” – his son’s favorite comic book superhero – and takes the law into his own hands.

But The Cape isn’t on the schedule when the fall season begins, it won’t be on TV until midseason. What else is there? The Event looks like it could be good, but will it last past one season? This season’s conspiracy thriller FlashForward didn’t. The Undercovers looks like Mr & Mrs Smith. How did that show do? Did it even make it to TV? Outsourced got the most laughs out of me, but it is stupid funny. A show I would only watch if there was absolutely nothing else on. The Chase looks okay, maybe I’ll catch that one on Hulu. There are two shows about lawyers, Outlaw and Harry’s Law. Anyone else sick of law shows? Than you have three shows that look very similar except one is aimed at chicks (Love Bites), another at dicks (Friends with Benefits) and another at couples (Perfect Couples). At least I will be able to see my favorite actress, Jennifer Love Hewitt, on TV at least once this season. She has a guest spot on Love Bites.

At least NBC renewed my favorite show, Chuck, for another season. Check out clips and previews for all of NBC’s new shows:

There were a lot of great TV Moments last week, these are my favorites. On How I Met Your Mother, Ted runs into Stella. Is she the “Mother”? Maybe, but I don’t think so. On The Big Bang Theory, Penny called out Leonard’s name while making out with Stuart. Over on Castle, Castle was asked why he doesn’t watch detective shows on TV rather than following Becket around. He said something like all they do is play with their sunglasses. Which is making fun of time slot rival CSI Miami‘s character Horatio Cane. Dollhouse had a bunch of great lines like when Alpha holds a gun towards Caroline/Echo’s harddrive with her original imprint and he says ‘I’ll blow your brains out’. The best line was when Topher and Ballard are talking about the doll’s souls and Topher says something along the lines of ‘we keep them in a jar with our fireflies’.

On SNL, Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg reprise their dick-in-a-box roles with Motherlover.

On Bones, Booth talked to Baby Stewie at the sperm bank.

And finally, on David Letterman, Leonard Nimoy presented the “Top Ten Lines Never Before Said in a ‘Star Trek‘ Film.”

What will be this weeks favorite moments? Will it be Prison Break’s two hour finale? Who will Michael choose, Sara or Lincoln? Or Leonard Nimoy as William Bell on Fringe or No Doubt on Gossip Girl or maybe Motley Crue and Zack on Bones or the Apocalypse on Supernatural or Doomsday battling Clark on Smallville?

What were your favorite TV moments last week?

TV Flipped Column with PJ Flip

Did anyone else think that Friday nights episode of Dollhouse should have been the series premiere of the show?

All of the episodes before it just weren’t that good. It wasn’t a show that I had to see. It was just a show that I’d catch whenever on the internet, only watching because it starred Eliza Dushku. “Man on the Street”, was more the vision Whedon had for the show, while the other episodes were what Fox wanted. Fox should have just let Joss Whedon do what he wanted, because it’s much better. If you stopped watching the show after the first few episodes, start watching again with “Man on the Street” and forget the other episodes.

Whedon knows what he’s doing. Look how many stars on TV came from the Buffy Universe; Faith (Eliza Dushku) is on Dollhouse, Willow (Alyson Hannigan) is on How I met Your Mother, Angel (David Boreanez) is on Bones, Caleb (Nathan Fillion) is on Castle, Oz (Seth Green) created and voices Robot Chicken, he also is on Family Guy, Fred (Amy Acker) is on Dollhouse, Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) did a bunch of episodes on Gossip Girl, Spike (James Marsters) did a bunch of Smallville episodes, Cordelia (Charisma Carpentar) did some Greek episodes, Kendra (Bianca Lawson) has been on the last few episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Principle Wood (DB Woodside) went from principle to president on 24, even Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is returning to TV with a new show.

Speaking of Bones and Family Guy, I read of a crazy crossover on the shows over on ew’s website. Booth (Boreanez) has a medical scare and hallucinates that he’s in Quahog (where Family Guy takes place) and meets baby Stewie. That sounds great, but you know what would have been better? If Booth hallucinated himself saving Buffy from vampires and Buffy confused Booth for Angel.
