One of the CW’s new shows called “The Secret Circle” is offering viewers the chance to watch the series premiere (which was filmed here in Vancouver) of the show ahead of schedule by making it available on iTunes. The show debuts on the CW this Thursday, September 16th but you can current watch the first episode for free on iTunes right now (if you are in the U.S.).

I watched a little sneak peak of the show on the CW’s fall lineup preview show and the premise is extremely similar to “The Craft” movie from 1997. I used to own the film, that stars Neve Campbell and three other women in a story about highschool witchcraft. A new girl moves to town and ends up in a “Secret Circle” of witches, where some of those involved don’t have the greatest intentions with their powers. I recently rewatched The Craft with Tyrell who had never seen it, and I have to say I’m looking forward to this show. Goodbye Vampires, Hello Witches!

I recently came across this compilation of scenes from a hilarious episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm and had to share it with you. The insanity begins when Larry goes to pick up his latest girlfriend, Jennifer (Ana Gasteyer), for a date. While he waits for her to finish getting ready, Larry is doodling Hitler moustaches on her magazines, when in comes waltzing her 7-year-old son, Greg.

As you can probably guess, Larry isn’t the best babysitter, with his unfiltered honesty. While he and Greg (who is fabulously flamboyant) hang out, Greg learns about Hitler’s hate for Jews and Larry learns that Greg is into Project Runway and fashion. When Greg sees the swastika doodles, he exclaims, “I like how the lines just go straight, up, down! Straight, up, down!” He then asks for one for his birthday. Nightmare.

Things come to a head later in the episode when Greg’s girlfriend reacts to Larry’s “parenting”. The video below shows on the clips with this fabulous little character named. Enjoy!

Bachelor Pad Season 2 Finale: And The Winner Is…

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

It was a roller coaster season of Bachelor Pad this summer. The drama was laid on so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Now, it’s down to four remaining couples: Kirk & Ella, Graham & Michelle, Kasey & Vienna and Holly & Michael. The episode begins as the couples head to Las Vegas for the final challenge. The troupe heads into a theater where they discover they are about to climb up the vertical wall from Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka” as a pair. They will be judged by former Bachelor/Bachelorette vets on showmanship, chemistry and technique. Ultimately, the best couple will stay and the worst couple must pack their bags and leave Vegas immediately.

The couples get off to a fairly good start with their choreographers on level ground except for the never ending fighting Kasey Kahl & Vienna Girardi. In the routine, they must create 10 seconds of their own choreography. Kasey has this idea to great a heart in the air (of course) and Vienna proceeds to be difficult and dramatic and claims it’s a terrible idea. The couples rehearse on the actual wall and Michelle feels nauseous while Ella is terrified of heights. As they go into the night, all the couples continue to work hard on their routines… except for Kasey and Vienna.

The next day, it’s showtime and the couples must perform for their judges: the first ever Bachelorette, Trista Sutter, former Bachelor Jason Mesnick and engaged Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky. The trio must decide who gives the best performance and award them roses as well as the send the couple they believe did the worst job home empty handed. The performances go well for Vienna and Jake while Graham and Michelle and Kirk and Ella have a rough time. The ultimate win is clear when Mike Stagliano & Holly Durst take to the wall. Their chemistry is undeniable and their final lift is stunning.

New Releases Out This Week: September 12th

In: Charge It, Music, TV Shows, Tyrell

With school back in full swing for many, it’s time for some real good movies to come out for you to pop into the blu-ray player after a crazy day of classes. Or, if you’re looking for a quite night in, there is bound to be something for you. If fantasy/comic book adventure is your thing, then you’ve been highly anticipating the release of this week’s featured new release. I’m talking about Thor which stars the ever so sexy Chris Hemsworth in the the title role. Check out a synopsis of the movie below:

The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth. – IMDb

While I didn’t know much about Thor before going to see the film, it by far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend buying the limited edition 3D blu-ray if that is up your alley. Check out some more new releases coming out this week below.

Earlier this fall, my business partner Jamie and I pitched our business, MASC, on the reality show Dragon’s Den. For those of you in the United States, this show is the equivalent of Shark Tank and even has a few of the same Dragons!

In order for you to check it out, I want to invite you to join the MASC Facebook Fan Page so we can let you know once it’s online and available. Season 6 of the Canadian series will be premiering on CBC this coming Wednesday.

The X Factor’s New 8-Minute Promo

In: Patrick, TV Shows

If you weren’t sure about watching the U.S. version of The X Factor before, this promo may seal the deal. It’s definitely on my list of top 5 new shows I’m looking forward to checking out. The way they’ve edited this show to be more epic and far superior to the other singing competitions, including American Idol, is brilliant. I’m pretty much tired of all of the singing competitions, but this show brings more to the table.

In the beginning of the promo you’re about to watch, the judges talk about how they’ve walked away from their already successful careers to take a chance on this project and the next generation of superstars. We also get to actually watch a few of the auditions. Watching The X Factor from other countries, I know that this show can sometimes just give me chills when the audience and judges respond to an unsuspecting killer voice. It’s so inspiring!

The Series Premiere of The X Factor – Wednesday, September 21 & Thursday, September 22nd at 8/7c, on FOX. Watch the 8-minute promo below!

In the world known as TV Land where marital comedies rely on the relationship between a man and woman and their living arrangement or their new nuptials, there hasn’t been a chance since Will & Grace for a gay couple to shine. That’s all about to change. May I introduce to you, “Husbands,” the world’s first marriage equality comedy.

The web series features the acting chops of Cheeks, Sean Hemeon and Caprica’s own Alessandra Toressani as well as some pretty heavy writing and directing talent from shows like “Will & Grace”, “Friends” and even “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”

The show which premieres on September 13th on their website has released a few teasers of what to expect. While the production value no where compares to that of it’s web series comedy competitor “Half Share”, I think the show will find it’s own niche group of followers and I for one cannot wait to check out the first few episodes. Watch the “Husbands” teasers below.

Donovan’s 5 Returning Show Picks

America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars

Ashamedly, I have to admit that ANTM’s highly-anticipated upcoming All-Stars season tops my list. I know the same sentiment is echoed by true hardcore ANTM fans as well. While the returning models aren’t the ones with the most model potential, they’re definitely the crème de la crème when it comes to drama and bitchy tendencies. Be sure to check on my preview pics on a weekly basis and for Rich‘s hilarious and popular show recaps.
