As if dying on TV wasn’t enough, Lost’s Michelle Rodriguez has found herself in a real-life version of purgatory. She’s found herself in jail. Again. Having recently completed a short stint in Hawaii for a DUI, Rodriguez will soon be returning to familiar territory—this time on the mainland. Seems her trouble with the Hawaiian police force was in violation of her probation back in the States. She should have realized that her high-profile arrest would make news back in California. For breaking the terms of her previous driving-related offenses, the California courts sentenced her on Monday to another sixty days in the clink (her sentence will begin no later than May 31). Including the 48 hours she spent in the California jail back in 2004, this will now be Rodriguez’s third time behind bars. With any luck, maybe she can have a roll around in the hay with one of the prison guards so that she can steal his keys…

Marlee Matlin, known for her superb acting talent and bringing deaf characters to movies and television, will join the fourth season of The L Word, airing in 2007 on Showtime. The always intriguing, often controversial series follows the trials and tribulations of a group of eclectic lesbians, boasting such talent as a post-Flashdance Jennifer Beals and the annoying yet unbelievably sexy Mia Kirshner.
Word has it that Beal’s character Bette will develop quite the thing for Matlin’s artist character. We’re looking forward to seeing what this talented, gentle-eyed actress will bring to this wild show.

If only the good die young, then the Law & Order franchise must be very, very bad. All three shows have been renewed for the 2006-2007 television season.
The enormously popular, unbelievably long-running detective drama Law & Order, which spawned two equally popular series, has been airing for sixteen years. Even more impressive, it’s the longest-running crime show ever, and the second most popular drama among the coveted 18-49 age demographic. Wow. Along with the original, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Law & Order: SVU (the best of the three in our humble opinion) have been renewed.
It’s refreshing to see a network recognize quality, and the fans demand it. Your Sundays (Criminal Intent), Tuesdays (SVU), and Wednesdays (the original) will continue to offer at least one good show to enjoy. Looks like crime does pay.
Perhaps she’s selfish. Or maybe she’s taking this ‘bad girl’ thing too far. Whatever the reason, Michelle Rodriguez, who plays tough chick and (ironically) ex-cop Ana Lucia on ABC’s Lost, has chosen jail over community service.
Rodriguez was cited for drunk driving in December 2005, just minutes before her co-star Cynthia Watros (Libby) received the same treatment. After enjoying the bars together, the women were left to enjoy some breathalyzer tests. They both failed and received DUI citations. Tsk, tsk.
Rodriguez seemed nonchalant about her decision to don some prison garb: “I kind of have to get back to my life, go back to making some money.” Of course, it wouldn’t do for this Girlfight-er to appear scared of a wimpy little thing like jail.
This news set off a fresh buzz of gossip among fans concerning the possible elimination of Rodriguez’s character, just a week after similar rumors erupted over Watros’ character. Neither the demise of Ana Lucia or Libby seems certain, but it does make you wonder if maybe the women should’ve left the partying on the island.

One of our favorite movies ever, hosted by one of our favorite actors ever, coming to our favorite entertainment medium ever…could it get any better? The adorable and multi-talented Jack Black will host a special two and a half hour television premiere of School of Rock May 5, on FOX.
In case you missed it, School of Rock is a wonderful comedy/drama centering on Black’s character, a diehard rock-n-roll musician who just can’t give up his dream. When he jumps at the opportunity to turn a bunch of stuffy private school kids into the ultimate rock band, everybody benefits. The television premiere will include Jack Black revealing his favorite scenes from the movie, and will showcase a full-length trailer of Black’s new movie, Nacho Libre.

Television is increasingly utilizing other technologies to involve viewers in their favorite shows, and mobile phones are one of the hottest items to do that.
In association with Toyota, FOX will air Prison Break: Proof of Innocence on Sprint mobile phones. The viewer will be subjected to a Toyota commercial, then be able to enjoy a 10-minute mini episode. The new show will have completely new characters and storylines. If you don’t use Sprint as your cell phone carrier, you’ll be able to view the episodes on Toyota’s website.
Really, what will they think of next? TV is already seeping into iPods, the Internet, and cell phones…obviously, the medium is preparing for a world takeover. That’s okay with us!

ABC has high ambitions: they claim that an online game version of Lost will be “the largest interactive game ever based on a TV show.” Considering the popularity of the mystery-laden drama, this seems entirely possible.
The game is entitled The Lost Experience and will feature a bonus storyline not seen on the show. Intriguing! Viewers will become detectives, collecting clues such as important telephone numbers along the way. As the show airs around the world, each geographical location will receive different clues. Producers promise that anyone can play, even those viewers completely new to the show.
The first clue will air May 3rd, so pay special attention to the episode. Even though we lose patience with the sloooow build-up of Lost at times, there’s no denying this game sounds like a blast. Will you be playing?

While it’s a good bet that the popular family drama Gilmore Girls will continue into a seventh season on the new CW network, it’s an absolute certainty it will be doing so without its creators and long-time writers and producers, Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino.
Sources fear that fans will rebel, but perhaps there isn’t as much to worry about as they may think. Fans have not been pleased with the husband/wife creative team for quite a while, when it comes to their favorite blue-eyed mother and daughter. Could this sudden departure explain some things?
Is this why the show has been so…well, lousy as of late? Fans have continually protested the ridiculous storylines and character choices found on the show for the past two seasons, including such eye-rollers as Luke’s ‘long lost daughter’ and the ever-doomed ‘L&L’ love story.
Perhaps the Palladinos lost interest long ago, and have been trying to amuse themselves by manipulating the characters into some sort of grotesque facsimile of the vibrant personalities we used to know and love. Was it boredom that led this show from ‘quirky’ and ‘eccentric’ to ‘outlandish’ and ‘poorly written soap opera’ status? Will bringing in fresh blood give the show back its luster? Will this allow Gilmore Girls to go out with a bang, rather than the whimper it’s been heading for? It may seem like dark days now with this news, but there may be a glimmer of a silver lining there after all.
