Video -- Eisenhower & Lutz clip, circa 1988, DVDs, Premiere Reminder

Pam wishes her google alerts would stop screwing with her: Scott Bakula – Eisenhower & Lutz.

Got a note from TNT reminding me that Season 2 is coming soon (12/6). There are promos all around but I'm only going to post things with actual non-clip content. If you will see it in the show, I'm going to hold off and let you do that. If Scott comments on anything, I'll post.

Remember, DVDs of Season 1 are on sale now. If you are looking for good prices, check out Black Friday Ads - there's a search box, and Amazon is price matching, if you can find a sale.

Interview -- Scott Bakula Sorry He Talked About 'Quantum Leap' Movie

The headline was not chosen by me. I've been mostly ignoring the movie issue as I'm not sure it will ever get any further than it has since 1993, and since Scott won't be a big part of it if it ever actually does. (The Petition posts were for a friend)

It's the Most Wonderful Time of The Year

Nope, not Christmas. It's Press Season!
With Men of a Certain Age's Season 1 DVD out next Tuesday, and the series premiering... um... what did I say last? December 6? there's going to be a lot of press (interviews and reviews on all kinds of media).
Guess it's time to stop playing with the bunny (and Facebook Privacy, and The Gosselins and whatever else I was into all year) and actually read my google alerts.
Hang onto your hats. Scott is finally on a network that understands the meaning of the word "promotion."

Interview/Video -- Scott and Andre on Men Of A Certain Age

Scott and Andre talk about female viewers and their storylines (in almost general terms). Is it spoilery? Depends on your level of spoiler allergy. I would have been happier to not have watched some of it, but it's not *too* bad.
If you want to know if Terry does well or badly at the dealership - don't watch the second half. Care about relationships? Ditto.
thanks to Cynthia

EDIT: perhaps I should have written talk about their storylines and female viewers. They don't talk about the female viewers' storylines.

Site News -- I Don't Like LIKE

If you've never seen the Facebook LIKE button, you've been away from the internet for a few months. The LIKE button is everywhere and it's sending data regarding you (don't ask me which data) back to Facebook, if you click on it. There's even a LIKE button on SBFF.
I generally don't cry "the sky is falling!" but I have an aversion to Facebook's uquity (even though I have an account myself, and I use it LOT) and datagrathering activities. It's not just a button, it's an Iframe with javascript in it. For more info, feel free to google it.

My point, and I do have one, is that Facebook is also trying hard to outstrip Google as a search engine (even though it's not a search engine but a social media site) the idea is, people are more likely to follow, visit, buy from a site or company their friends liked. (Facebook recently partnered with Bing, to "make searching more social."

So, since I refuse to invade your privacy by putting Facebook's LIKE button on my site, feel free to use the Twitter button at the bottom of each post to share this site with your friends or followers. You won't end up adding to Facebook's profile on you, and you might even push BakulaNews up a bit, in the search engines. (Or link to me - that will do it too.) The only reason I care about being "up there" in Google is so people can find out (more/news) about Scott (was it exciting to be #1? Sure, but it's not the goal here.)

And for those of you reading the side menu or the date on the top frame, yes, I know they are way out of date (most of the links still work, though) I just have to drag out the computer with Dreamweaver in order to update them, and I haven't)

Chuck -- Back 11 but no more Scott

thank you to @_baylink:
We have just received the news that Chuck has been picked up for the back 9 PLUS TWO making season 4 a 24(!) episode season! (that's rare!)

As noted in a recent post, Scott will not be returning. We are not sure whether this means that Papa Bartowski will simply not come back to life or that Scott will not appear in any way, including flashbacks.
Televisionary's post on this topic (Chuck, not Scott) contains a link to NBC's press release.

This is a handheld video from across the street. The zoom is fairly decent but the stability may prove nauseating. Also note that The Informant! - which is what they were rehearsing - was out in theaters September of 2009 - not next spring. Aside from that, take a dramamine and enjoy! (No, you can't hear them either, but hey - maybe you can figure out why Scott's jacket appears to be ripped. If you know, let me know!)

Apparently today was the release date for Chuck Season 3 DVDs. I forgot. I'm sorry. I hear they are sold out in lots of places. I was up to my knees in a mythtv upgrade debacle when it came across my twitterfeed and I forgot to go back and check. I'm sure there will be more if your store doesn't have them today. I just completely forgot.
Please note -- when The New Adventures of Old Christine is released, I'm not going to notice at all. I didn't last year. (Was it last season Scott was in it, or the season before?)

TV -- Men of A Certain Age News: Airing Schedule, Sort of

Reports from Dragon Con coming in via Twitter regarding the airing schedule for MOCA. Sit tight while I look over what I've heard and I'll be back in a few.

a tweet from mjr91 who is at Dragon Con
mjr91 At dragoncon. Scott Bakula says Men of a Certain Age is filming s2 right now. Airing in Dec and then becoming summer series.

Clarification from one of the creators
12 eps... 6 air this fall/winter, 6 in spring/summer

Okay, that's it. Sorry for the delay. Search and formatting issues and just too many windows open!

Brief Editorial

I started this site in 95 cause I really loved Scott (not romantically of course) and I wanted to share him with "new" people who might be interested in him, and share news of him with any fans who just wanted news (no chatter - maybe people who loved Scott but were busy or had many fandoms - like I would love to find sites that would quickly give me the latest on Donny Osmond and Josh Groban. They each have sites but I don't feel either is doing it). Just the facts - a quick dose of Scott news and a heads up if he was going to be "seeable" somewhere.

I became a fan of Scott in 93/94 for a specific reason that a fan a Dragon Con just reminded me of.

I'd heard for years that "when Scott is talking with you, it's like you are the only person in the world." Years later, at the funeral of Donny Osmond's mother, one of her sons gave a eulogy of "I Was Mom's Favorite." She had 9 kids, but it was the same thing - she made everyone, when she interacted with them, feel that way. That's a talent - it's not an act, it's sincere, but still a talent, to aspire to. This is one of the main reasons I love Scott. He knows how to give people that feeling. I don't have that talent. Haven't learn it yet. But I do have the feeling that I want everyone to have that experience from him. And that's why, even after almost 15 years and even though I've developed a lot of other "hobbies" and things I need to get through online, and sometimes I miss a piece of Scott news here and there (though hopefully, I catch it in time for you to watch it or get there) I still have to do this:

I love Scott. I want you to have the chance to experience that too.
So I'll be here - before you miss it.

Appearance -- Dragon Con Schedule - maybe

For those of you in Atlanta this weekend,
I'm stealing this from Julia, who did all the work and should get the credit.

It looks like these are the most likely panels Scott would be at:

Friday - 9/3/10
4:00 pm (90 minutes)
Atrium Ballroom
Quantum Leap

Saturday - 9/4/10
1:00 pm (one hour)
Atrium Ballroom

5:30 pm (90 minutes)
A704 (M) AMSF
Chuck: One Big Unhappy Spy Family

Remember these are guesses, but they look good to me.
I believe Scott made it to Atlanta around midnight. I could be wrong.
We know nothing, but we can assume.
If you would like to visit Julia's website <--that was the link.

She's always quite organized and does better than I at digging up info for events she's not attending.

Interview -- Another from the 2010 Emmys

LAist - Scott Bakula aka Terry Elliott of TNT's 'Men of a Certain Age at the 2010 Emmys.

An Answer to the Question: did scott bakula win an emmy?

(From my referrer logs)
No. He wasn't even nominated. Nor was his show, Men of a Certain Age. However his cast-mate Andre Braugher was. sadly, he did not win either.

Interview -- Scott Bakula talks #Chuck, Men of a Certain Age, #Trek

Star Trek Interview with Scott Bakula
I had a ball on the show. They have a great bunch of people over there, including a lot of Enterprise people, which was fun for me also. I thought the scripts and the character were well written, which is what got me over there. I’d been a fan of the show and continue to be. Zac Levi leads a great group of actors over there and we had a good time. When they called me to come back and get killed they explained to me what they were trying to achieve, and the idea was that my death would help this young man grow up. They wanted to shock Chuck into that, and killing his father seemed like a good way to do it. I think they executed it – pardon the pun – very well. I think it played well and I think it had a profound effect on the series and on Chuck. I’m curious to see where they’ll go with it.
Quantum Leap Movie
This is all I know. I have spoken with Don (Bellisario, who created the show) and he’s been approached by a producer to write a script and produce a Quantum Leap film. He’s intending to do that and has begun work on it. And my understanding is that Dean (Stockwell) and I may have a small cameo element to the movie. But it hasn’t been written yet. So we’ll see.

Sightings/Video -- Emmys & UPDATE: Link to Interview

Scott was at the Emmys last night with the gang from Men of a Certain Age (Andre was nominated but did not win).

I did get to see him interviewed (Scott & Ray were interviewed together) on the livefeed on, but I don't see that they kept it at the site (feel free to look, though) and I don't remember a lot. I wasn't expecting to see him at all, and wasn't looking for him - I just had my laptop tuned to the Red Carpet feed and happened to turn and glance at it at the right time.

Thanks for your patience during this test.

Off Topic -- A book "review"

More of a synopsis really.

When I'm not busy with Scott, my friends, watching my varying scripted TV series, or playing with my duck and the bunny, I have strong feelings about the subjects of this book: A mother, a father, and the 8 children whose lives their decisions affect.
Pamela J. Ashworth's review of The Secret World of Jon and Kate

I've disabled comments, as all the ones I have received to date have not been in English and contained links to sites I would not recommend my readers visit (I believe they contained viruses or malware). Therefore, should you wish to comment or throw rotten fruit, I can be reached by using the "Contact Pam" link in the upper left corner of the very outdated top frame of this page.

Thanks for your indulgence.

I now return you to Scott News. Please see below for articles about Scott's upcoming appearances (yes, the left frame is out-dated too) at DragonCon in Atlanta in September, The release of the Men of a Certain Age DVDs in November, The premiere date for season 2, and The Charity Golf Tournament in L.A. (You Can click on any of the LABELS at the end of this post (and then scroll past *this* post again) to get a pageful of posts on the topic you are interested in.)

There are lots of articles being written about the possibility of a Quantum Leap movie, but all we know right now is that Don is writing a script, there may be a big name directing (or not - I missed a couple of words) and Scott and Dean will have minor roles. And no, we don't know how minor. And considering the way Hollywood works, it could still all come to nothing, therefore I refuse to get my hopes up at all until they at least begin shooting. And there are no projected dates for that. I'm just looking forward to Men of a Certain Age.

TV -- Men of a Certain Age reruns at 2am

starting tonight at 2am ET on TNT, reruns of Men of A Certain Age (the ep on 7/13 says it starts at 2:10am)

Friday, June 25, 2010

TV -- Men of a Certain Age reruns

For those of you who missed anything, first run, TNT is re-airing 3 eps of MOCA July 6,7, & 8 at 2am ET. No news on the rerunning of any other episodes - my DVR only schedules two weeks in advance. Will let you know if they show up.

Sightings -- Scott at Premiere

Scott attends the opening night of "Into the Heights" at the Pantages Theatre in LA, June 23

While I've decided Sightings is a better category title than "Around Town," (for live appearances and stuff, that you have already missed or couldn't attend) I forgot that Pictures would have worked, too...

Sightings -- Scott, Shatner, and Shatner's New Documentary

Didn't quite have a category for this one (fixed that). The other day, a fan took a picture of Scott and William Shatner at a restaurant. While observing that "Scott has finally met Shatner," fans wondered what was up.
This article explains. it turns out, is the concept behind his forthcoming Star Trek documentary, The Captains.

“I’m talking to all the captains of Star Trek,” explains Shatner. “I’m hoping to find things out about them that even they themselves don’t know. And in the process find out about myself.”

The article also contains the aforementioned photo (shot by an anonymous fan) and a Tweet from Shatner.

The documentary is being shot for a network in Canada. There is no mention as to whether it will air in the US.

Review -- Praise for MOCA

Houston Chronicle praises MOCA.
Most Surprising Series: Men of a Certain Age on TNT. Did anybody see this coming? The drama, starring Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula, managed to be poignant and funny (an incredibly difficult mix to get exactly right) about men having midlife crises. Easily the best portrayal on television of men dealing with their second acts and all the people -- friends, wives, lovers, kids -- who populate that stretch.

Quotes -- Emmy contenders and such

Found this without even a google alert. Though it might be a couple of days old and maybe I posted it before, but since I don't remember reading it, maybe not. Emmy Contenders Scott and Andre talk about Men of a Certain Age, auditioning, and each other.

Men Of A Certain Age - and the Emmys

I'd heard that it premiered too late in the year to be eligible.
Maybe not.
TNT's Emmy Campaign Mailer
"Men of a Certain Age" is the network's best Emmy hope among its newer series because it features past multiple Emmy champs Ray Romano ("Everybody Loves Raymond") and Andre Braugher ("Homicide," "Thief") plus four-time nominee Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap"). The Los Angeles Times calls it a "miraculously good show about a stage of life that is too often either ignored or overplayed."

Reminder -- Scott on Chuck, Monday night

Scott will be on the 2 hour season finale of Chuck tomorrow, May 24, on NBC from 8-10pm ET.

Also, Chuck has been picked up for a 4th Season (thank you, Chuck fans!) of 13 episodes. Please get your friends to watch. Fan activism got us a season 3, and now we have a season 4, but the ratings are still not that great and generally, the reason the show was picked up was that NBC is in a post Leno at 10 fiasco and doesn't have a lot of hit shows anymore anyway. No one watches NBC, no one sees promos on NBC, no one watches *more* NBC. It's sorta like being on UPN! Only sadder....

Upfronts -- Brief Comment from Scott

I've been so busy this week that I didn't even consider that Scott would be at the Upfronts in NY, cause, when I think of Upfronts, I think of major broadcast networks.

I also admit to not reading my google alerts - I thought they were all about Chuck. I have skimmed the headers at SBFF and satisfied myself that Scott is not about to appear in a Broadway Play or Benefit or anything else you are about to miss, so here is one of the quotes from the upfronts (and remember - Chuck tomorrow at 8pm ET on NBC - two hours. There will be an automated reminder tomorrow before 6. I hope. It depends on an auto-tweet and Twitter talking to Blogger. Hmmm... Maybe not. I think Blogger talks to Twitter.

Men funnyman Ray Romano closed the upfront appearing with his co-stars Scott Bakula and Andre Braugher and joking that although his show may not attract the youngest demographic, he and his cast were still going to "keep it real."

"So I'm gonna get a rash and you're gonna get a groin pull," he said to Braugher.

Request to Scott fans

The ratings for Chuck last night were... significantly "less good." We therefore request that you watch the show live (the networks get bigger ad dollars to live than for DVR ratings) and try to get your friends to watch. The more viewers we have, the better our chances for a 4th season (and Schwartz & Fedak blessing us with more Scott.)

Interviews -- From PaleyFest

There are a few more PaleyFest related articles (and one video). I'm not sure which are just a fleshing out of the panel plus Q&A and which are interviews conducted by the person writing them.

Men of a Certain Age "surpassed" expectations

In an Interview with Broadcasting & Cable’s Melissa Grego, Turner Entertainment Networks President Steve Koonin spoke in absolutely glowing terms when it came to Men of a Certain Age:
Men of a Certain Age just wrapped its first season this week. You’ve ordered a second. Did it perform as you hoped?

This show surpassed every expectation I had. Our criteria are critical success, for which we got a check-plus; adding value to sales clients and cable affiliates, that’s a check-plus; and potential in ratings, [another] check-plus. It couldn’t have performed better than it did
this is from Broadcasting & Cable by way of TVByTheNumbers

Ratings -- Men of a Certain Age, Finale

TV By The Numbers gives the final ratings for MOCA.
TNT’s critically acclaimed series Men of a Certain Age closed its first season out with 2.6 million viewers (Live + Same Day) Monday night, with outstanding growth across the board when compared to the previous week’s episode. The season finale audience is expected to grow substantially when final Live + 7 data is available in two weeks. Current blended data shows the series averaging 4 million viewers for its first season.
thanks to Helene for the reminder, as I did not post this when I first saw it, which was apparently... today, though I could have sworn it was longer ago.

Interview -- More from the Chuck Phone Q&A

NBC confirmed a while back that Scott Bakula would be around for one of the later episodes of the season. Is there anything you can say about what he's doing or additionally anyone else that we are familiar with that might be making a return appearance before the season's out?

Joshua Gomez: He's doing awesome work I can tell you that much. Get Scotty Bak.

Zachary Levi: I know this is a spoiler and we're not supposed to talk about it but it turns out Scott Bakula is my dad. Yeah, I don't know. He really is doing fantastic work. I can't even tell you how much I love Scotty Bak. That guy is not only super talented but he is so fun. Like he's like a little kid like... You know, we'll just break into song or do funny voices and but he's such a pro like just like to a T. You know, just always on his moments, always diving into this character, Steven Bartowski who is very odd and kitschy and quirky and brilliant and, you know, and he brings it every time, every scene and it's such a pleasure to work opposite him. And, you know, and Josh gets to work with him as well so it's nice when you have a guest star that, you know, kind of traverses both the spy and personal life.

TV -- Three Eps of Chuck Confirmed by "NBC Rep"

Okay, I'll buy it now. The NBC rep is unnamed, but he did say the word "three." :-)

Can you talk about what Scott Bakula is doing this season?
Gomez: He's doing awesome work, I can tell you that much.

Levi: I know this is a spoiler and we're not supposed to talk about it, but it turns out he's my dad. He really is doing fantastic work -- I can't even tell you how much I love him. ... He's always on his moments, he dives into this character of Steven Bartowski, who's very odd and quirky and brilliant. He brings it every time.

How many episodes will he be in?
Levi: Can we say? I believe he is doing three episodes at the end. [An NBC rep confirms that Bakula will be on three episodes "in the very last part of the season."]

Chuck - 2 eps or 3?

While we were on the phone this afternoon, reading the internet to each other (I swear) there was a phone press conference with people from Chuck and a few people said Scott was going to be in three episodes, 17 thru 19, but Scott had said 2 and last year he said 3, and was in 19-22 but not 20, so I'll have to read the summary and see if 17-19 actually means 3 episodes or it's an assumption. Stay tuned notes from
Scott Bakula (or “Scotty Back” as Zac calls him) is 1) awesome, 2) prone to break out in song on set, and 3) appearing in episodes 3.17-3.19.

Quote -- re: SAG Awards

From USA Today

"I love the communal feeling of these awards," said Scott Bakula of TNT's Men of a Certain Age. "What we are as actors, for better and for worse, is visible. So it's just great when we use that visibility to do something good, like the telethon. I mean, come on, we are so lucky in this business. To do something for other people when they need it most just feels good."

This week's ep of Men of a Certain Age will feature the wonderful Robert Loggia, who had to remind me that he had done *two* movies with Scott, when I stupidly told him how much I loved "the" movie he did with Scott (he asked "which one?") oops. For the record, I saw Necessary Roughness a few times but I've seen Mercy Mission uncountable times.

I just heard Ray Romano on the SAG Red Carpet say "We're finishing editing the last one this week, and we got renewed, so we're ready to start tomorrow on the next one." (Ready, but I don't think that's the plan)
