Faora, who appearing in multiple forms in the comics, is always a man-hating Kryptonian. It remains uncertain which one Traue has been tapped to play. In popular culture, the feminine Kryptonian named Ursa, in Superman and Superman II is thought to be based on Faora, who appeared in season eight of Smallville as the wife of General Zod.

It’s expected that Traue will be playing the version of Faora that debuted in Action Comics as a Pokolistanian assistant of General Zod. That character was a metahuman with the capability to disorder of the molecular structure, which let her to create a mutagenic virus that served as the key player of Zod’s plan.

Traue recently wrapped a role in Renny Harlin‘s war drama 5 Days of August, starring Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia and Heather Graham. She was previously tested for the Brad Pitt‘s wife in Marc Forster‘s World War Z, but the role was lately went to The Killing star Mireille Enos.

It is now official. Our favorite Javier Bardem is now confirmed to play the lead role of Roland Deschain in The Dark Tower.


Just in case you missed our previous reports about this project, we’re talking about Ron Howard‘s upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series, The Dark Tower.

Yeah, yeah, it’s the good old story that follows “Gunslinger” Deschain as he travels through an Old West-like landscape in search of the mythical Dark Tower to save civilization.

According to NewYorkPost, “..Bardem has signed on to the first movie and the miniseries, but the intention is that he will star in all three movies and each of the TV series. It’s an enormous deal for any actor, but Bardem was always the first choice.”

That’s exactly what we reported back in January, so, it’s not such a surprise. But it definitely sounds great.

Production on the first film looks likely to start this September with Howard directing, and Brian Grazer producing.

Let us also remind you that, as well as a trilogy of films, the story will continue through three TV miniseries that are planned to follow each film.

This is really a good casting news for The Dark Tower. At least other rumors are gone as Bardem will surely play Deschain.

What's your thoughts?

I was stunned.

Last night's Maalaala Mo Kaya or MMK featuring Bugoy CariƱo and the last acting appearance of AJ Perez gave us a story of hope, perseverance, love of family, and surpassing the seemingly impossible things.


"Tsinelas" is a story of two brothers who conquered their goal of travelling from Manila to Catbalogan, Samar by foot. Actually, it is not their original plan but it is the only available way given the circumstances and their financial resources. The two traveled for more than 500km experiencing and learning lessons in life on their way through.

Personally, the episode is so touching simply because what they have done seemed like an impossible goal. But they did it and it was not easy. They gathered garbages and anything that can be sold to feed themselves on the way. They slept on the streets. They faced and overcame dangers on the road. All of these were achieved by the two siblings through their love for one another and the common dream that binds them both.

After watching the episode, you will realize that life is never easy. So before we complain on how hard our life seems to be, let us first think that there are others who are even in worse scenarios. Before we complain and blame our Supreme Being for our hardships, let us first look around as we will surely realize that we are even the lucky ones.

We also have dreams and goals in life. This story tells us that there are many ways to achieve such. If the easy one is available then lucky for you. Otherwise, do not easily give up. Work for it, keep focused and get strength from your family.

Overall, "Tsinelas" deserves some awards, both local and international. The story is superb, the acting of AJ and Bugoy is engaging and heartwarming. It is just sad that AJ will not be able to hear this praises directly, but we all know that he is up there reading our feedbacks. The MMK episode is a revelation of AJ's acting skills. AJ, hats off and hands down to you. You gave us one MMK episode that we will not forget as long as we live. To the real "Tol" and "Dagul," we also salute you sirs! Both of you are living examples of what a determined Filipino can achieve.

"Tsinelas" is a masterpiece. There's no doubt about that.

What a jam-packed episode for Fringe! Episode 21 titled "The Last Sam Weiss" showed us lots of things from Olivia's involvement on the machine, the unpublished manuscript by the last Sam Weiss, Walter playing the kite as experiment, and most importantly, Peter entering and engaging the machine.

The way Peter awoke and walked out onto the balcony of the hospital was excellent. Not only did he look stunning in his pea coat as always, but the way they framed him in the doorway as the lightening crashed down around him was magnetic. It was truly beautiful and thoughtful cinematography.

"The Last Sam Weiss" was laugh out loud funny. From Walter's surprise at finding the traditional fruit cocktail to Sam flipping out his museum membership card as identification at the site of "the key," I was openly giggling.


TV Fanatic: Laughing out loud was followed by a tightening in my chest when Walter shared with Olivia his thoughts abut his own mind and hers. We saw his true regard for Olivia as he spoke to her. Both John Noble and Anna Torv literally made my heart ache as they brought that moment to life

This is what then popped into my head - what an incredible shame that more people have not embraced and witnessed the strength and growth of Fringe. They have no idea what they are missing.

Did ANYONE see the "crowbar" coming? Again with the fate, as Peter and Olivia were both drawn directly into the plans of the machine. We were also lead to understand how Olivia's telekinesis would come into play. Another brilliant throwback to a past episode, "Ability," from the first season

There is no doubt those wonderful folks mentioned above (and others) know this story inside out. Their competence in tying so many episodes together is uncanny and it is what makes Fringe such a powerful force to the horde of fanatic viewers.

When Peter awoke, I thought that he might have been on the other side. Or that he would be transported there during the cab ride. The actuality of what occurred, Peter's confusion of his place and time was another WOW moment.

But what about the silver coin that Peter bought on NY. I didn't notice its use, what about you?

Season 6 of Supernatural really talks about souls. Even episode 19 titled "Mommy Dearest" touches this subject as it delivered a decent episode last night.


TV Fanatic: Unfortunately, Eve's arrival as the all powerful Mother of All seemed to come and go rather quickly. Was she actually that easy to kill? Did Dean really eliminate her or like every major enemy, will she return for one final attack?

If that was the final confrontation, then frankly her character was never that large of a threat. Sure, she could create hybrid creatures to attack the entire world for her own collection of souls. Yes, she was the cause of all of the monsters that Sam and Dean hunt. Yet, in the end, her presence felt so absent that she seemed more like a fleeting monster of the week.

Nevertheless, Eve did bring all of the major characters together. Sam, Dean, Castiel, and Bobby all garnered realatively equal amounts of screen time, leaving no one to the background. Plus, they were able to go on an actual mystery hunt that required all of their efforts.

Of course, the hunt also showed off Sam and Dean's greatest strength and weakness. The boys' ability to protect and help others at the cost of themselves is what makes them heroes. It can also end up being one of their greatest downfalls.

Castiel managed to call them out on this concept, which wasn't brand new, but significant nonetheless. However, Castiel really wasn't in the position to be making judgement calls.

Really Cas? You and Crowley working together? So that's the dirty little secret that's been murmuring around in Heaven.

It was a pleasant surprise to find out that Crowley had survived, but that also meant that Castiel was behind the deception of his death. Crowley appears to be that much more of a threat now. If he has one of Heaven's most powerful angels on his side, then Sam and Dean need to worry. Hopefully, they won't have to face off against their friend.

As much as there were big reveals for the night, the episode still managed to toss in a few laughs. While not as many one liners, Dean stole the show with his scientific naming of the new hybrid creatures: Jefferson Starships.

Not only was it a funny name for the monsters, but it was humourous hearing the members of the group shout it out while trying to remain serious. It was just another classic Dean moment.

Overall, episode 19 is a decent episode. But honestly, I really like to see more of Eva. What do you think?

Smallville Season 10 Episode 19 Review & Watch: Dominion

Posted by Maki On Friday, April 29, 2011 0 comments

I love how episode 19 "Dominion" was played out. The story and dialogs did the job, and I'm satisfied with this episode.


TV Fanatic: I was not particularly a fan of Callum Blue's excessively smug Zod when he was part of the cast last season. There is such a thing as too much grandstanding, I think. Here, though, the dialogue-heavy scenes between he and Clark and he and Oliver seemed to work better, and felt a bit closer to the iconic portrayal Terrence Stamp set forth in the original films years ago.

I have to think Hartley had a lot to do with keeping Blue's smarm in check and giving me a reason to finally get on board with Smallville's incarnation of Zod.

I knew there was no way Oliver would ever betray Clark, but that didn't keep the fierce battle scene between them from eliciting gasps of shock.  The slow motion interspersions aren't anything we haven't seen before, but I thought they worked quite well for the circumstance and added a little something to the brutality of the moment.

In fact, I thought everything related to the Phantom Zone plot worked well, and I especially liked how it tied so neatly into the Darkseid saga. (Seriously, though, if we don't get some actual Darkseid action soon my dark side is gonna come unglued.)

The only thing I couldn't quite reconcile was why in the world Oliver would show up, fully aware of the situation, and enter the Zone with Clark without his archery gear? Still scratching my head over that one.

Oliver going off in search of the weapon to destroy Darkseid has terrible idea written all over it (something tells me Darkseid is already aware of it's existence on Earth) but at least it will give us a Green Arrow/Supergirl team up next week, to which I'm looking forward.

Is it too much to hope that she'll don the costume before Clark? Probably so.

Lois may have played the selfish card in forcing the League to keep the Zone gate opened, putting the lives of everyone on earth at risk in the process, but with the mix of passion and desperation in her eyes, I dare to say not one of those Leaguers would want to go up against that. Forget what they say about a woman scorned…don't mess with a woman in love!

I take solace in the fact that Lois had already seen a glimpse of a phantom-free future and therefore had to know that Clark would return; it was just a question of when.

The series finale is near. That's why maybe we are expecting more on each episode. But on this one, I'm quite satisfied.

As expected episode 19 of Grey's Anatomy titled "It's a Long Way Back" focused on the recovery of Callie. She also tried the best that she can to be a mother to baby Sofia.


TV Fanatic: One of the most moving scenes of the episode occurred when Callie’s friends snuck her to a window so that she could see little Sofia for the first time. Ultimately, Callie and Sofia both recovered, albeit with some bumps in the road, and were allowed to go home.

Dr. Bailey showed that she is both a great mother and friend when she told Callie that it was ok to worry as a parent and that she needed to take her baby home.

This week’s episode also proved that Arizona and Mark are capable of parenting together as they did when they communicated by cell phone during Callie’s and the baby’s surgeries.

Dr. Stark once again showed that he is actually a complicated character when he kindly supported Arizona throughout the episode. At the same time, he refused to help Alex and basically told Alex that he was not reliable.

April seemed to be falling for Dr. Stark, but now he will not give her the time of day. Do you think they work as a couple now?

Alex, meanwhile, had to deal with an extremely difficult, and funny, lung cancer patient. She added a lot of much-needed comic relief to this episode.

After speaking with Arizona, Alex suddenly got the idea to fly in African children who needed surgery. Clearly, he was initially just trying to land the chief residency, but he seemed to actually care about the project by the end of the episode.

Alex was his usual self when he continued with the project despite having no funds to do so. At the end of the episode, however, his deceased patient came through and left him more than enough money to care for the African children.

Did you think that this was realistic? It should be interesting to see if Alex remains dedicated to helping the children and really changes and matures. Also, Alex may be in contention for the chief residency at this point.

Meredith discovered that Adele was worse than the Chief had let on when she found a post-it that said, “This is Richard. Richard is your husband.” Once again, the post-it was a means of critical communication in Grey’s Anatomy and may have represented a turning point in the show.

After Meredith got Adele into the Alzheimer’s clinical trial, she snuck into the pharmacy and switched the trial information to help Adele get the actual drug rather than the placebo. This twist really was not all that surprising given Meredith’s horrible experience with her mother and Alzheimer’s.

Meredith seemed especially upset when Adele thought that Meredith was Alice Grey and accused Meredith of having an affair with the Chief. Additionally, it seemed like the Chief sort of impliedly asked Meredith to help Adele at all costs.

Or at least that’s how Meredith may have interpreted his words.

Do you think that Meredith truly jeopardized the trial? If so, this will clearly cause problems with Derek and Meredith’s relationship in the future.

Elsewhere, Henry and Teddy bonded over Teddy’s bad dates. When Teddy came over to tell Henry that she was in the middle of a great date, Henry became upset.

So what can you say about this return episode of Grey's Anatomy? Are you excited for the wedding?

Again, Casey Abrams is voted out of American Idol season 10. But this time, there is no judges' save available.


His second elimination from American Idol stuck Thursday night, and came as something of a surprise, as conventional wisdom suggested Jacob Lusk was the weakest link.

While the bottom three was never revealed (Ryan just started listing off who was safe in supposedly random order), it came down to Jacob, Casey and Lauren Alaina.

That's when the growling jazz singer got the unexpected pink slip.

"This is what talent looks like, ladies and gentlemen," Ryan Seacrest said, as he introduced Casey Abrams for his final performance, "I Put a Spell On You."

Episode 22 of Community titled "Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts" gave Shirley and Chang an opportunity to shine. And luckily they nailed it!


TV Fanatic: I know I've chided sight gags before, but the horrified look on Britta's face as she peered into the dark nether regions of Shirley's skirt had me rolling. I had to rewind it again, at least twice.

This was Gillian Jacobs' best episode yet, by a mile. Often Britta's Earth Mother-y ways come off more annoying than funny, but this time the role served her well when it came to delivering Shirley's baby. It also gave us another hilariously snarky exchange between she and Jeff:

Jeff: Look, backseat birther. Shirley's on her third kid. She doesn't need a thirty-year old slacker with two one-eyed cats governing her body.
Britta: First of all, together my cats can do anything. Secondly, you disqualified yourself from this conversation the moment you decided to grow a wang.
Jeff: I regret nothing.
Britta: I feel sorry for the airhead you're gonna knock up at the age of 70. You're gonna be sitting in the waiting room playing solitaire on your Blackberry while a life is created ten feet from you.
Jeff: Oh and you're gonna squat in a babbling brook and a beautiful starchild is gonna slide out on a ray of sunshine while your cats each half watch because you're so natural.

The funniest line of the episode, though, came by way of someone we've never seen before (or at least she thinks so), Fat Neil's would-be girlfriend, when she said: "We came so close to having one class that wasn't all about them." It's funny, because it's true.

Pierce buying off Abed and Troy's handshake Indecent Proposal-style seemed a bit disconnected from the rest of the episode. It delivered a couple of amusing lines, but sort of dragged the energy down a bit. (The Troy/Abed epilogue didn't have the same oomph I've come to expect from them either.) When Abed joined in trying to help with Shirley, even though his genitals disqualified him from participating, the episode definitely flowed better (especially given his referenced back-of-a-van experience with child delivery).

I thought it was actually sweet, and oddly fitting, that after all the anger Shirley had tossed out at Chang for months that he would be the one at her side to calm her, even though the baby turned out not to be his. At least she named it after him.

Maybe now, Chang won't have to stare longingly through a window, wanting to be a part of the Study Group Group. If anything qualifies him for admission, surely this is it.

This is a great episode for Community. They utilized the cast very well bringing us an episode full of laughter.

I don't know what to say. Episode 20 "The Last Day" gave us lots of twists, more than what we can handle. The episode is superb, no one really expected that such events will occur but they happened, and we are stunned.


TV Fanatic: What had been a slow-building, somewhat melodramatic episode suddenly changed course with not one, but two huge developments heading into next week.

Klaus turned Jenna? Did anyone out there see that coming? That was wild enough, but hearing that Damon is "as good as dead" left me at a loss for words.

This isn't to say the episode was boring prior to 8:58. Coming into "The Last Day," I assumed the title ominously referred to the final day before Klaus' big sacrifice.

It did, but it also referred, potentially, to Elena's last day as a human.

First we learn that after sacrificing a witch, werewolf and a vampire, the final step of Klaus breaking the curse is to drink the doppelganger's blood until her demise.

The imagery of this happening to Elena, combined with Joseph Morgan's tremendously creepy performance as Klaus leave no doubt how serious this is. But Elijah has a plan.

Well, he had one. Damon wasn't buying the "witch's elixir" BS. Maybe he should lay off the scotch for breakfast, because he made his most reckless move to date ...

Damon forced Elena to drink his blood so that she'll become a vampire if she dies! Many fans have theorized that Elena would turn at some point, but this quickly?

While Stefan taking Elena on that hike felt cheesy and Twilight-esque, they had to discuss the elephant in the room eventually, and now Damon forced it on them.

Unlike Bella Swan, Elena doesn't want to be a vampire. Bless her heart and the writers. This is true to her character and presents a new, complex moral dilemma.

If Elena does die and come back as a supernatural being, should we be happy? Is she going to wish she were dead? Will she never forgive Damon for doing this?

We may or may not find out soon. After a tearful kiss goodbye with Stefan that left Stelena worshippers everywhere reaching for the tissues, she vanished with Klaus.

Meanwhile, Tyler, Caroline, Alaric and Matt all played key roles last night, some more predictably than others, beginning when Maddox flung Carol Lockwood down the stairs.

Tyler therefore returns to Mystic Falls to check on his hospitalized mom, and bumps into Caroline! Lo and behold, Klaus' sacrificial cuties coming together in one location!

Maddox nabs them both, but Damon, who's already regretting what he did, is now frantically trying to postpone the sacrifice any way he can. Plan A? Get rid of the wolf.

After gathering intel from Kat, Damon heads off to find Tyler, but is stopped by Maddox, who is shot dead by ... Matt! We might make a solid character out of this kid yet!

Matt was packing heat with wooden bullets, making you wonder what would have gone down had he gotten to the tomb first or found only Damon there and not Maddox.

After they all escape the tomb, the full moon begins to rise over the horizon. Tyler can't hold off the transition, so Caroline and Matt take shelter in the Lockwood cellar.

That was a close one, but everyone's safe ... except Klaus wasn't about to be played so easily. You learn a thing or two when you've been planning this for a millennium.

Once again, Klaus proves how hard core he is by revealing - in his slow, all-knowing, sinister tone - a backup plan. One that isn't any less consequential for our crew:

Maddox is dead, but he can use Greta.
Tyler is gone, but he's captured Jules.
Caroline is safe, but he's got ... "her."


Her. I was wracking my brain trying to think of who it could be, but never in a million years guessed we'd see Klaus MAKE a new vampire ... out of Elena's aunt Jenna.

What I assumed Klaus would do, or try to do, would be sacrifice Damon instead of Caroline, especially after he brazenly confronted him. But Klaus has no use for him.

Katherine, his conduit, tells Damon he's as good as dead. As the screen fades to black, we see that before he escaped Tyler, he was bitten by the werewolf in transition.

Another incredible twist there. While there's no way the show is killing off Damon, I have no idea how they're going to worm out of this one. It's unprecedented.

Klaus had his Plan B. It's up to the Salvatores to come up with one now.

A final word, if I may, before turning the discussion over to your comments: I can't say enough about Ian Somerhalder as the increasingly tormented, erratic Damon.

From his sarcastic delivery ("Klaus, I presume?") to his body language and piercing stare that tell us more than dialogue ever can, he's outstanding every week.

Overall, episode 20 is an emotional and stunning episode! I love it and I don't care what other people say.

Amy kissed Penny. Amy kissed Sheldon. Priya nullified the roommate agreement. Sheldon danced with Amy hilariously. Sheldon redrafted the roommate agreement. Sounds-like an ordinary episode? No! Episode 21 "The Agreement Dissection" is my favorite this season!


TV Fanatic: Unfortunately for Leonard, but fortunately for the viewers, the roommate agreement-free zone didn't last long, but it provided the backbone for one of the funniest episodes of The Big Bang Theory this season.

For the first time, I wasn't annoyed with any of the characters, not even Priya or Amy. They both were well-utilized in the story and weren't annoying human beings.

Perhaps, Sheldon did Leonard a favor by blackmailing him and Priya, because now he has a reason to break up with her. As we all know, Leonard still belongs with Penny.

Amy in large doses usually grates at me, but drunk Amy is hilarious.

I hope her relationships with Penny and Bernadette will help bring out that side of her even when she is sober. We really don't need two characters who can only function as full human beings when they are drinking. Though, it would be intriguing to see what would happen if drunk Amy and Raj were to hook up.

Jim Parsons, as usual, had the funniest moments. I'm not sure anyone else could have eaten - or not eaten - greek food in such a comical manner. He is able to use his facial expressions to perfectly reflect Sheldon's circumstances.

The only part that I didn't really find funny was the smoking monkey.

It was a distraction to the Sheldon and Amy moment. It isn't often that the two of them are alone together and I would have enjoyed it better without the monkey. Though, it was good to find out from the vanity card at the end, that the monkey wasn't actually smoking.

Although Howard and Raj didn't shine in this episode, the cast really delivered a funny and hilarious episode! I love this episode, 5/5 stars!

The Mentalist Season 3 Episode 20 Review & Watch: Redacted

Posted by Maki On Thursday, April 28, 2011 0 comments

Jane is definitely in trouble on Episode 20 titled "Redacted." But unlike before, this one is worse.


TV Fanatic: "Redacted" had Jane hiring thief Culpepper to break into LaRoche's home and it went horribly, horribly wrong.

I loved that LaRoche clutched his little dog as he fired on his would be robber. It probably didn't do much for his aim but it was darn cute.

Why would Culpepper not open the duct taped plastic container? It was certainly odd that it was kept in a safe. I couldn't believe he wouldn't bust it open just out of curiosity. It left me wondering if that silly container and its contents will come into play before the end of the season.

Poor Jane was so distracted by his predicament that he seemed to miss most of the case but he hit the highlights at the end.

My favorite part was that Heather felt justified in killing her boyfriend because she planned to use the money for good and not evil. "The universe wants me to have this money." Sorry Heather. The universe didn't issue a free pass for murder with the cash.

Cho, Rigsby, and Grace had very little story this week but I did like that Grace used her girl next door looks to sweet talk the mercenary into coming inside. She pulled the pretty girl act off well and Cho and Rigsby stood behind her looking more like big brothers ready to beat the man up if he didn't do what she asked.

I was so thankful when Jane finally confessed all to Lisbon. It showed quite a level of trust that he admitted to committing a crime. He obviously saw her as a friend first and a cop second. Luckily for him she seemed to feel the same.

I had no clue what Lisbon would do when she walked into that room. At least slugging Culpepper probably felt good. Having that type of incident on her record certainly underscores her feelings for Jane. A couple of years ago she wouldn't have thought about sticking her neck out for him like that. Now she didn't seem to think twice about it. How things have changed.

With these latest developments, what can you say about The Mentalist? How will they affect the storyline?

Episode 20 of Bones titled "The Pinocchio in the Planter" seems to be a decent episode though not my favorite this season. So what went wrong?


Even Booth's secret, which, given his hesitance to reveal it earlier in the episode, lacked the luster and perhaps even awe that I was genuinely expecting. Yet, given the rather stationary overall trajectory of this season, I, unfortunately, believe that perhaps I should not have been surprised.

Mind you, this episode has some real potential in terms of character development, especially with regard to Angela and Hodgins becoming completely honest with one another over the fears they have about the baby's potential to be born blind. I would have especially liked to see more of a conversation between Sweets and Angela, as it occurred to me that we have rarely seen them interact on an interpersonal level. But other than that, the other minor plot points, such as Wendell's aggressive approach to procuring more hours, and his insistence on insulting Cam's lotion scent, was slightly unnecessary.

Even more interesting is that  throughout this entire episode Brennan managed to elude having to tell a truth herself. While I recognize that she professes to tell "aggressive" truths all the time, that fact is most certainly has to be untrue. I just don't think there's a human on the planet who hasn't lied. Besides, when she told Booth that his omission was the same as lying, I found her statement to be rather hypocritical. There are certainly things she herself has withheld from Booth, which would make her no better.  I also think if she'd been compelled to tell a truth in order to gain the cooperation of the group it would have been more entertaining, and Sweets even more so. Why was Booth the only one having to come clean in the situation?

On another note, I had totally forgotten about Booth's distaste for clowns. I remember the last time that was an issue was when he shot the clown-head on the ice cream truck a while back. It wasn't as funny as I was hoping it would be, but it was a nice refresher of a character quirk.

Overall, the problem with this episode will be the lack of cameos from "The Finder." What do you think?

When NCIS returns on Tuesday with episode 22 "Baltimore," we will be able to see the so-called "first encounter." What does it mean?


In this much-anticipated "origin" episode, we'll also see DiNozzo's first encounter with the man who's been his boss for the better part of 10 years now: Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Episode 22 also marks the first time in at least 40 episodes that Michael Weatherly has gotten to wear casual attire on the show ...

Shooting an NCIS interrogation scene quite unlike any other, Michael and Mark Harmon are in flashback mode, circa 2001, facing off as captor and the captured.

An abandoned newspaper office building in downtown Los Angeles has been transformed into a Baltimore police station, where DiNozzo has brought a handcuffed Gibbs in for questioning after tackling and arresting him on the street.

When he learns that his future boss is not a crook but an undercover NCIS agent, he is dumbstruck - by Gibbs' seeming stupidity in getting busted.

"Well, it's official," DiNozzo says as he cuffs Gibbs ...

"He's a cop — a Navy cop. Navy NCIS," the actor adds, in as patronizing a tone as possible - an inside joke for fans, since that was the silly full title the series.

Weatherly promises that the episode will shed new light on his character, whose competence was being sacrificed for comedy in the eyes of some fans - and Michael.

"I have been more alert about: Are we going to step on Tony and put him in a position where he suddenly doesn't know how to fight very well?" he tells TV Guide.

"I've always thought, well, it'll be fine - until this year. In 2011, I'm like, no! We've got to protect him a little. But I think the writers were having the same idea."

What's your thoughts on this one?
