  • Amazing newwws! Any Battlestar Galactica alumun is always welcome to my shows, but Michael Trucco was always one of my favs and Revenge is also one my favorite shows at the moment, so this is a perfect fit!

  • “It wasn’t immediately clear what impact, if any, the actor’s Revenge duties would have on his HIMYM stint.”

    He already finished shooting with HIMYM. He wrote so in one of his tweets. Jeez, aren’t you suppose to know this things??

  • i don’t know what any of these shows are. Is this on cable? My nephew said he can watch battlestar on the calculator, but where do you find it?

    • Castle, Revenge and HIMYM are all on basic network tv (at least in North America). Fairly Legal is on USA which is a cable channel. Battlestar Galactica is over but it aired on SyFy. You can get the dvds for all the shows or stream them on several places on the internet. They aren’t hard to find.

    • While Walking Dead is awesome, Revenge always has priority now. For me that is.

    • Who complains about these things in the days of all the alternative viewing options available?

    • Just watch the TWD repeat that will start immediately after the first show. It’s not like AMC doesn’t air the crap our of their shows or anything.

  • Why do you use phrases like “TVLine has learned exclusively?”

    Comment by dennis – September 29, 2012 10:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It means they broke the story, not that they are the only ones allowed to publish it.

      Comment by ohoh – October 1, 2012 12:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Unless you mean the phrasing, in which case it is probably to avoid a split infinitive. It does come across a bit awkwardly though.

  • Trucco is a great addition, but I’d rather Bamber any day o’ the week!
