No Snakes In Hawaii, Except For The 2 Found Since September
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On Tuesday morning, a pedestrian in Honolulu's Chinatown came across a snake in the sidewalk. Now it'd be surprising enough to stumble upon a two-and-a-half foot non-venomous rainbow boa constrictor at 7 a.m., but in Hawaii it's downright shocking. That's because, technically, Hawaii doesn't have any snakes. Not only because it's paradise, but because, as Discover.com reminds us, "as an isolated archipelago, the only way for wildlife species to get to the Hawaiian Islands is to fly or swim across the Pacific Ocean." While Hawaii is rife with invasive species, snakes are among the most dangerous. Without any natural predators, they compete with the native animal populations for food and habitat, and many snake species prey on birds and their eggs, increasing the threat to Hawaii's many endangered native birds. Accordingly, it's a class C felony to possess or transport snakes in Hawaii. Violators risk a $200,000 fine and up to three years in prison, but the state has still coll ...

7 Chicago Fire Teases: Benny's Big Move, Shay Hits Bottom, a Chance for Casey and Dawson?
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Boden's loss was Benny's gain on Tuesday's episode of Chicago Fire. After repeatedly going toe-to-toe with State Fire Marshal consultant Gail McLeod (Michelle Forbes), Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) waved the white flag and handed in his resignation. "There have been open-ended gestures on my character's side and the same for him, but you take it with a grain of salt because he's a little shifty," Kinney said. Because he comes out and now he's saying that he wants to get even more involved, and Severide isn't exactly sure how to handle that right now. Seeing a patient commit suicide will hit Shay (Lauren German) hard as she pulls away from Dawson (Monica Raymund). [...] it will be Severide who helps her the most.

Chicago Fire Is Cranking Up the Heat with Mena Suvari
Boom Tron - over 3 years
Chicago Fire is going for a different kind of heat to fight against than what you would usually expect from a series about firefighters. The change comes along with the casting of Mena Suvari (American Pie franchise) who will be the central cause of this new kind of heat that will no doubt leave a few fires in its wake, but I don’t expect any buildings to burn down as a consequence. But I suppose it could happen if the timing is right and she’s in a sufficiently dry place… Wow, anyway: Suvari will be making herself fairly well known throughout Chicago Fire’s second season, so you might as well get to know her character a little bit beforehand. According to Deadline, Suvari will be recurring as Isabella, a close friend of Dawson (Monica Raymond) who is enlisted to help Mouch (Christian Stolte) with his campaign as President of the Chicago Firefighters Union. Now would be a good time to reveal the heat Suvari will be bringing to the show is of a sexual nature. That being said, don’t ...

Porn star jailed for exposing co-stars to sexually transmitted diseases
Financial Post - over 3 years
Courts continue to wrestle with what to do when people are unknowingly exposed to sexually transmitted diseases. NBC News rep0rts that this week, adult video star “Mr. Marcus” was given 30 days in jail, 36 months probation and 15 days of community labour  for exposing two female co-stars to syphilis during the shooting of a film last year. Neither women contracted the disease but one of them, Heather DeAngelo, has sued Mr Marcus for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Mr. Marcus, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, is a member of the Adult Video News Hall of Fame and admitted to altering his medical records in order to be part of the film. Los Angeles, where this film was shot, now requires male actors to wear condoms while making adult films. Hat tip to Garry Wise.

Porn Star Sent To Jail For Passing On Syphilis
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Porn star Mr. Marcus was convicted of knowingly exposing two co-stars to syphilis and was sentenced to 30 days in jail Tuesday. Mr. Marcus, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge of exposing another to a communicable disease, according to adult entertainment site Xbix. In addition to jail time, he received 15 days of community service and three years of probation. The case is believed to be the first of its kind, LA Deputy City Attorney Diego Edber told the Pasadena Star News. Mr. Marcus, 42, who believes he contracted the STD on set, admitted to altering his syphilis-positive test in July so that he could keep performing. With the altered test, he filmed sex scenes with two actresses before a producer noticed that the STD form was altered and the actresses filed a police report, NBC reports. Neither of the actresses contracted the disease. Mr. Marcus' altered test started a syphilis outbreak scare and moved the industry ...

NBC Renews 'Chicago Fire'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
NBC has renewed "Chicago Fire" for a second season, the network announced Friday. The Dick Wolf-produced procedural has been one the Peacock network's few successful new shows of the 2013 TV season, so "Chicago Fire's" renewal comes as no surprise. In its debut season, the series has been averaging around 6 million viewers per episode. Season 2 will be 22 episodes and NBC has already commissioned a spinoff that would focus on the Chicago police department. In addition to "Chicago Fire," NBC also renewed "Parenthood," "Grimm," "Law & Order: SVU" and "Revolution" for new 22-episode seasons. Yuriy Sardarov, who plays Otis on "Chicago Fire," which also stars Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer, tweeted a photo of the cast on set, celebrating the renewal: So happy about the pick-up! twitter.com/yursar/status/… — Yuriy Sardarov (@yursar) April 26, 2013 And this one too: And an alternate universe where, for some reason, so sad about the pick-up! twitter.com/yursar ...

NBC Already Considering A Spinoff
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
A "Chicago Fire" spinoff is reportedly in development at NBC, as originally reported by Deadline.com. The series would follow the Chicago police department like "Chicago Fire" follows members of the Chicago fire department. NBC declined to comment on the story. A representative for Wolf Films could not be reached as of publication. It is unusual that a first season show would get a spinoff, but "Chicago Fire" has been a bright spot for the struggling Peacock network. The series premiered to just under 7 million viewers, then dipped a bit before getting back into the game. Its most recent episode had 6.4 million viewers and a 1.7 rating. NBC was tops during November sweeps for the first time in years, but in a span of three months the network fell way behind its competitors. During February sweeps, NBC placed after Spanish-language network Univision. "Chicago Fire" stars Jesse Spencer and Taylor Kinney. The series is executive produced by "Law & Order" guru Dick W ...

Shirtless Taylor Kinney Fights With Jesse Spencer on Chicago Fire
US Magazine - over 4 years
Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer are ready to bring the heat on NBC's new firefighter drama Chicago Fire! Premiering Wednesday, Chicago Fire follows the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago's firehouse 51, including Kinney (as Lt. Kelly Severide) and Spencer (as Lt. Matthew Casey).

Executive produced by Law & Order's Dick Wolf, Chicago Fire may document wild fires and other medical dramas, but for Kinney, the most exciting part of the procedural is the characters' intertwined subplots.

Maureen Ryan: Don't Blame The Midwest For 'The Mob Doctor' And 'Chicago Fire' Failings
Huffington Post - over 4 years
As I've written before, in the view of much of Hollywood, Midwesterners are Hobbits, more or less. Seriously, think about most shows set in Chicago or elsewhere in the Heartland: The people are usually simple and kind, loyal but a little gullible, hard-working and fun but not particularly bright. And boy, do they love to eat. I mean, there's a whole show based on the concept that people who loathe themselves in L.A. are considered, yes, hot in Cleveland. We're used to coastal types thinking we've got all the brainpower and allure of hairy-footed Middle Earth denizens, but as a longtime Windy City resident, I can attest that that doesn't make the annual deluge of lazy Chicago-set shows any easier to take. There's nothing wrong with taking advantage of a show's setting to deepen and enrich our understanding of the characters' world -- Tony Soprano absolutely belonged in New Jersey and sunny Miami is a nice contrast to Michael Westen's grimly determined personalit ...

Fall 2012 TV Preview: More thrills and chills, fewer laughs
Denver Post - over 4 years
Television will do its best to scare, unnerve and cliffhang this fall. With the rare exception, the dramas look much more promising than the comedies. A range of old dramatic genres and types — the lawman, the superhero, the archvillain, the detective, the catfight — are getting modern updates. The comedic offerings for Fall 2012 are a middling bunch, although history suggests some comedies take time to grow into themselves. (“Modern Family” was an instant hit but “Seinfeld”and “Cheers” were famously slow starters.) Time for a couch potato’s version of speed dating vis-a-vis the 18 new series, with premiere dates. Guess which ones will make it past Thanksgiving? The six best: “The New Normal” (NBC) — A gay couple who want to have a child meet a single mom who wants to escape her overbearing (and hilarious) mother and start anew. Ryan Murphy (“Glee”) presents a smart peek at old stereotypes and new formulations of family. Andrew Ranells and Justin Bartha are the committed coupl ...
