CI Review from TV Remote

From the TVRemote:

"...Law and Order: Criminal Intent

The new season of Criminal Intent starts out a little slow, but Jeff Goldblum brings it when he joins the cast on April 26. His twitchy, musically inclined detective fits perfectly into the cast—nice chemistry with partner Julianne Nicholson and the perfect yin to Goren’s yang...."

CI Review next week on TV Barn

From TV Barn, 4.7.09

"Life" wins! Respect the Damian Lewis fansites

So, later today I will tape a video review of "Life," which ran away with my poll thanks to blogs that pointed fans of the show to it. "Life" has not yet gotten a third-season pickup from NBC, and the season finale is Wednesday, so I'll get right on it.

Don't worry, Vincent D'Onofrio fans -- your "Criminal Intent" review will post next week, in time for the season premiere a week from Sunday.

Thanks L and Stefanl!

   

Vincent on Cartoon Network

VDO has two voice credits for this Adult Swim program that airs on the Cartoon Network. The two episodes are for the Xavier: Renegade Angel series (Season 2) titled "Damnesia Vu" and "El Tornadador".

On Imdb

One of those episodes “Damnesia Vu” will air on Friday, April 10 at 12:15 am and again at 4:15 am.

New York's Film and Tax Credit

Business Insider, 4.5.09
by Hilary Lewis

This week the New York assembly voted to approve $350 million to fund a 30% tax credit for movies and TV shows made in-state, extending a program that last year led to such a flurry of filming that the Empire State burned through its entire $460 million fund in 10 months.

HBO's In Treatment was one of the shows that took advantage of the tax credit to move from Los Angeles to Manhattan, where shows actually get a 35% break because of the city's separate 5% tax-incentive program.

--excerpted from Q&A with HBO's Showrunner Warren Leight (formerly of CI)--

TBI: Do you think the networks will factor the new money for tax credits into their decisions about whether a show gets renewed or not?
WL: If a show’s on the bubble, it’s one more factor. If it’s a $2 million-3 million an episode show and you’re not sure about [renewing] it, and you’ve just been told that there’s a tax credit that could save $400,000 an episode, that has to influence the decision. If you can produce 22 episodes for under $50 million as opposed to for $60 million, that has to be better. Last year, Law & Order: Criminal Intent was absolutely on the bubble (no one knew if it was coming back or not). And the tax credit was why they didn’t pull the plug on the show. It probably saved that show $500,000 an episode and that made the difference between that show having a seventh season or not.

The Eeyore Post

Last evening, some of you emailed us about the cryptic post containing a string of numbers and 'Eeyore is cute!' that replaced our CI Promo post.
(Thanks for alerting us)

Apparently, this was a glitch in the Blogger system when they attempted to conduct a server load test.

Have a good weekend!
