Bones Star Talks of Half-Eaten Lovers and Mangled Schedules

Apr 2, 2009

by Matt Mitovich

You could say that Camille's old flame isn't half the man he used to be. Literally. That grim image sets the stage for this week's (non-preempted!) episode of Fox's Bones, airing Thursday at 8 pm/ET. Tamara Taylor, who plays Cam, gave us a peek (through the fingers) at what's to come. Plus: What's the deal with this season's far-out pre-finale episode?

A brief excerpt: Poor Bones can't catch a break with the scheduling, can it?
Taylor: You know, they promised that it's going to be consistent for the next 11 weeks. Hopefully that will stand. There's now talk that because of recent presidential preemptions, some episodes might get held for the fall, and aired out of sequence.
Taylor: Oh, I wonder! You probably know more than I do. I heard they might double them up.... There are a lot of theories. [Sources tell that Bones will run new episodes on Wednesday as well as Thursday during the weeks of April 13 and April 20.]

Eureka's Colin Ferguson looks ahead at season 3.5 and beyond

By Ian Spelling

Colin Ferguson, who stars as Sheriff Jack Carter on the SCI FI original series Eureka, told SCI FI Wire that whenever the show comes to an end he expects that Jack will be flying solo.
"I think he's just a character who's never really going to get the whole meal," Ferguson said. "He's never going to get every flavor. He's going to get most of it, but then something's going to fail. So I think he's alone. Maybe that's a sad thing to say, but I think that's part of his makeup."

SCI FI Wire spoke to Ferguson exclusively earlier this month in New York, where the actor addressed not just Carter's fate, but also the second half of Eureka's third season, which will premiere in July. Following are edited excerpts from that conversation (at the link above)...

Primeval - Season 1 Premieres SciFi Channel Apr 10 '09

Primeval, the '07 UK scifi series, premieres on the SciFi Channel (US) on Friday, Apri 10 '09 at 10pm. Starring Douglas Henshall, Andrew Lee Potts, Hannah Spearritt, Lucy Brown, Juliet Aubrey, Ben Miller and James Murray.

World-renowned evolutionary scientist Professor Nick Cutter and his team are recruited by the British Government to investigate a series of dinosaur sightings. From a Gorgonopsid rampaging through the Forest of Dean to a swarm of giant spiders in the tunnels of the London Underground, they find themselves doing the "Monster Mash" with some seriously beastly opponents.

The seemingly impossible becomes a terrifying reality as long-extinct creatures rip through human territory. Meanwhile Cutter and his research assistant, Stephen Hart, struggle to find answers. Enlisting the help of zoologist Abby Maitland and student palaeontologist Connor Temple, the four work to uncover the secrets of the temporal anomalies. Yet it soon becomes clear that all traditional methods of research are extinct.

The team is abetted by shadowy government officials James Lester and Claudia Brown, who instruct them to keep the danger secret from the public. Yet inevitably, the past threatens to invade the present and destroy the future. And Cutter's crew faces a life and death race against time.

Adding to the chaos, Cutter is also struggling with a private dilemma. After disappearing for eight years, his wife, Helen, mysteriously returns with possible answers to help halt the invasion of prehistoric creatures. But is she willing to share the secrets? And if not, then why has she returned?

Combining dazzling special effects of Walking With Dinosaurs and Jurassic Park style, action and thrills, plus a haunting love story, Primeval asks a horrifying question — has mankind come to the end of the evolutionary road?
