My husband and I have a little girl. For years, we said we would never let our future child watch television. We always thought parents who let their children watch television, didn’t care about spending time with their children. We thought these parents were just neglecting their children. Well, then we had a child. The television has nothing to do with caring for or watching your child. Sometimes everyone just needs a few minutes to rest and relax and not have to think about things. We decided our directv tv was not doing any harm to our child and to be honest it was helping keep us sane. I love my child more than anything on this earth, but the thirty minutes a day she watches television gives me time to recharge my batteries. Of course, I know too much television is a bad thing. However, I have gone from thinking children should never watch television to understanding and believing everything is fine in moderation. My advice to all the parents-to-be out there is to never say you would never do something because likely you will be eating your words.

Lets jump right in.

She’ll be back? Hopefully. The latest rumor for the proposed Terminator 5 (you know, the one Universal is looking to make with Arnold and Fast Five director Justin Lin) is that Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) might be back from the grave. Or more accurately, never died in the first place as Lin is looking to explore the idea of the multiple timelines. With how far Terminator 3 and 4 strayed from what was originally established, it would make perfect sense to explore the idea of the fractured timeline.

In the about time department, the Sin City 2 script is undergoing some rewrites by William Monahan in preparation for the film to finally be shot. The original was shot back in 2005 and it is really weird that it has taken more than 6 years for the sequel to get closer to being made. The original was a spot on adaptation of the popular graphic novel, that was not only a hit creatively, but found a decent sized audience.

Lots of movement on the Two and a Half Men front, with Judy Greer cast as Ashton Kutcher’s ex-wife and the announcement of Courtney Thorne-Smith returning as Lyndsey McElroy, Jon Cryer’s Alan’s ex-love interest. It will be interesting to see how all of the changes that started with Charlie Sheen being fired will effect the show’s ninth season.

Don’t forget, there are some pretty awesome websites that let you watch Free TV Online.

New posters: What’s Your Number, Redtails, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip Wrecked (click to enlarge the posters).

Maybe the cast and crew broke in to an executive’s house and stole some incriminating documents? Somehow the Fox series Breaking In has survived being cancelled twice (yeah, I said twice). The series from Adam F. Goldberg and Seth Gordon has been picked up for a second season of 13 episodes. The show is actually really funny and witty, it stars Reaper‘s Bret Harrison, Christian Slater, Michael Rosenbaum, Odette Annable, and Alphonso McAuley. Not to mention a great line up of guests including Alyssa Milano and Mike Tyson. The series centers around a high-tech security firm that uses extreme and questionable methods for their clients.

The success of the brilliant cable series Mad Men has made Broadcast Networks mad for period dramas. Next season of television will include Pan Am, set around airlines in the sixties, The Playboy Club, Hugh’s famed club during its heyday (also in the sixties), and Gilded Lillys, which is set in the 1980s at a New York City hotel. Now you can add into the mix an untitled wrestling drama from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jerry Bruckheimer for NBC. This one is set in the world of wrestling during the 1980s. While the show will be set in a fictional world, in the real world the eighties was the rise of Hulkamania and when the World Wrestling Federation (now known as WWE) excelled wrestling from a sport to entertainment. Personally I think there are so many places this series could go and I’m very excited about it. The Rock is a perfect producer on this as he is a third generation wrestler who not only grew up through this time period, but also even had his hand wrestling against Hulk Hogan.

I can honestly say that DC Comics’ supernatural hero Deadman was the last character I thought the CW would ever develop as a new series to follow the gap left by the end of Smallville, especially when you consider that Smallville set up the potential for decent series following a number of characters including Green Arrow, Booster Gold, Blue Beatle and others (including supernatural characters like Zatanna and Doctor Fate). Also add into the mix that NBC recently rejected a pilot for a Wonder Woman series that seemed like a perfect Smallville replacement (and would also likely strike a cord with the CW’s large young female audience). Why didn’t the CW look at WW?

Anyhow, I guess Deadman falls in line pretty well with half of the CW’s current slate, which includes Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and the upcoming witch show, The Secret Circle. Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Deadman is being developed for television by the creator of CW’s Supernatural, Eric Kripke. They say that the series “…is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives.” Sound like Quantum Leap meets the Ghost Whisperer. Will other members of DC Comics’ supernatural world make appearances? There are lots of great characters he could interact with, like Swamp Thing, Constantine, or even Frankenstein? I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this will actually happen.

Wall Street is a place where more happens than most of us are aware of. This is the place where so much about the price of different goods is determined. It is important that you are paying attention to what is going on up there. That is why the show Wall Street Warriors is so interesting to me. This show is all about the different people that work on Wall Street. It shows the different things that they do in their jobs and helps explain what is going on to the average individual out there who has no clue about what is going on.

I think that a show like Wall Street Warriors is great both as an educational show and for entertainment value as well. I personally make sure that I tune in each week on my bestchoicetv.com to catch the episodes. It is a new show, so it is hard to say which episode is my favorite yet. I would just say the first episode titled “Capitalism Rules” simply because of the fact that it was the episode that introduced me to the show. If you want to be entertained or educated, it is important that you make sure that you tune in to this show as often as possible. I learn something new every time I tune in and I think you will too.

Oscar nominee James Franco is making a grand return to General Hospital at the end of September. Unlike most actors that get their start in soaps, Franco decided to go for a run on the long running daytime drama in 2009, well after he found success in both television and film. I love Franco and his Hospital serial killer character of the same name and I can’t wait to see what they do with him on this go around. It is said to be a “long-term” arc. With One Life to Live and All My Children canceled off of ABC, General Hospital is going to have to pull out all of the stops to prove that the show still belongs in the lineup and this is a good step towards that.

More goodies from the Wonder Woman pilot that will never see the light of day have surfaced, includes two clips from the proposed series and a bunch of pretty cool storyboards. The storyboards are by concept artist Cesar Lemus and show shots from the released clips (like the above one) along with glimpses of WW’s origin on Paradise Island. Was her origin originally going to be in the pilot but got cut out or were they saving it for later? After watching the footage, this series seems like less of a fit for NBC and more of a fit for the CW. It could have been a good guilty pleasure superhero series to replace Smallville… oh well.

Terra Nova, the new high concept time travel/dinosaurs series from Fox, just released three awesome posters. Check out one of them below and the other two over on the Hollywood Reporter.

The new series stars Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Naomi Scott, Allison Miller, Landon Liboiron, Shelley Conn, Alana Mansour, Mido Hamada, and Avatar‘s badass villain Stephen Lang. It premieres on September 26th.
