Weekly TV Wrap-Up - June 4th 2009

Tonight, Thursday, June 4, 2009, Burn Notice will be starting its third season on USA.

The show stars the ever-cool Jeffrey Donovan as Michael Westin, the explosively inclined Gabrielle Anwar as Fiona, Bruce Campbell - need I say more?  And the ever-timeless Sharon Gless as Michael's mother.

It's an awesomely fun show.

Virtuality Is Getting The Virtual Foot

First it was going to be a pilot, then it was just going to be a television movie aired on the worst night ever to premiere a show - July 4th.  Now Ronald D. Moore's Virtuality is getting moved to another air date.

Virtuality's new air date will be June 26, 2009.

Virtuality is about 12 astronauts on Earth’s first starship called the Phaeton.  They're headed out on an epic 10-year journey that's crucial to the survival of life on Earth.  To give the long distance-traveling crew a measure of privacy as well as a recreational outlet, Phaeton is equipped with virtual reality modules where crew members can explore self-created worlds.

There's only one problem.  "There is a bug in the system."

Stars of the show include Kerry Bishe, Ritchie Coster, Eric Jensen, Nelson Lee, Joy Bryant, Clea Duvall, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Sienna Guillory, James D'Arcy, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Gene Farber, Omar Metwally and Jimmi Simpson.

Executive producers are Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Voyager).

The 2-hour movie will air Friday, June 26th (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Fox's Mental

Has anyone caught the new show on Fox called Mental?

Fox's publicity says:

Everything changes at Wharton Memorial Psychiatric Hospital when radically unorthodox psychiatrist Dr. Jack Gallagher (Chris Vance, C) arrives as the Director of Mental Health Services. As Gallagher takes on new cases, he is confronted with patients battling unknown, misunderstood and often misdiagnosed conditions

I've been told Mental is the psychiatric version of House.  If anyone who has seen this show wants to chime in, feel free!
