The crew touches on the fact that both Mirror Mirror (2012) and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) both are coming out right along the same time as “Once Upon a Time” (2011) (TV series) will be wrapping up its season. And is a show like this able to influence major Hollywood studios in moving up release dates for shows?  Also what do you think of the trailer for Snow white and the Huntsman?

Fringe Cast

Q & I are huge fans of 2 FOX TV shows that potentially could be facing the axe.  If you haven’t seen FRINGE or Alcatraz your doing your self a disservice.  The reason I say this is both of these shows are very creative and mysterious without having to go over people’s heads that aren’t into Sci-Fi/Drama.  With viewership on the decline for both shows, FOX doesn’t see why it should continue producing the shows. Instead they mar replace both shows with something that has a bit more reality (Which seems to be all we have on TV now).  I don’t have to many shows I enjoy and have dedicated myself to these to shows. I feel losing either of these shows now would be a huge mis-step on FOX’s part.

Ghost Rider

So Shady decided to go see Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance this last weekend and we were hoping for a great review from Shady. Why do you ask, well,  #1 he’s into Motorcycles, #2 he liked the first one, & #3 he wouldn’t stop talking about the trailer when it came out a few months ago.  Find out his thoughts and opinion of the latest installment from the Ghost Rider franchise.

Billy is back!

Billy Crystal Returns to Host

Billy Crystal Returns to Host

I think everyone was re-leaved when the news hit a few months ago that Billy Crystal was indeed going to return to the hosting duties of the OSCARS.  I even was more excited when I saw the trailer for the OSCARS called “The Host”, which made me feel that this was going to blow away all expectations. We take time to talk about some of the highlights and low lights and all the fun stuff in between plus go over our OSCAR predictions from last weeks episode (if you haven’t heard it go here first).

The EftRoU crew returns this week with a new format and some entertainment news and thoughts regarding the Touch Preview event on Fox. Plus the Screen Actors Guild awards, the Pro Bowl for those sports fans listening and last but not least Oscar Nominations and Snubs.  Sit back and enjoy as we bring you another great episode.

Touch and Screen Actors Guild Awards

FOX has brought Kiefer Sutherland back to the small screen on with the premiere of his new show titled Touch.

Touch - FOX

This has been an interesting show to wait for as it puts Sutherland in a role that is literally and completely the opposite of his Jack Bauer character, from the famous 24 series.  The show revolves around Martin Bohm (Sutherland) and his 11 year old son Jake Bohm, played by David Mazouz, who is autistic but sees the entire world differently and realizes how everyone and everything is connected.  The series is created by Tim Kring of Heroes (2006) & Chicago Hope fame.  The show definitely has me hooked but what about the rest of the crew?

Next up was the Screen Screen Actors Guild awards that were on TBS.  Q took some time to watch this years show and shares his thoughts with the crew of the highlights as well as his thoughts on the winners and losers.  We also take some time to dive into the idea of “do we really need more award shows“?  Mike and Q definitely take sides in the matter and I realize I haven’t seen nearly as many movies in the last few months as I thought.

The Oscar Nominations

Again the debate rolls onto the nominations and snubs for this years (2012) Oscars.  The crew really has some fun with this and making fun of me for not liking Cars 2 (2006) as well as making some bold statements about other animated films from PIXAR.

We talk about some interesting thoughts on what now counts as a performance when an actor has been digitized.  We don’t make our predictions this week but sure start to get a feel for what might be a winner and losers based on whats happened this awards season.
