- Thanks to Ann for the news that Damian Lewis was interviewed on last night’s 2008 Fall TV Preview on the TV Guide Channel. The program includes clips from season 2 of Life. The show will be repeated several times this week on TV Guide so check your local listings. The interview with Damian took place in the last 15 minutes of the 2-hour special (but the repeats will be broken into 1-hour segments so you will have to watch to make sure you have the part that includes Damian!)
- Spoiler warnings! NBC Universal has posted these synopses for episodes 2.03 and 2.04 of Life –
“The Business of Miracles” (2.03: October 6, 2008 on NBC in the US):
FROZEN STIFF—The body of a cancer research scientist is discovered literally frozen solid, baffling Crews (Damian Lewis) and Reese (Sarah Shahi). The crime scene suggests that an animal rights group took revenge on the doctor by switching out his oxygen tank with pure liquid nitrogen. As the detectives delve into the victim’s tangled private life, they become increasingly skeptical about the identity of the murderer. Meanwhile, Crews is determined to prove Jack Reese (Victor Rivers) was involved in his incarceration, and Ted (Adam Arkin) asks Crews to act as a reference for a business school interview. Donal Logue also stars.
“Not For Nothing” (2.04: October 10, 2008 on NBC in the US):
US AGAINST THEM—A university’s prison experiment goes horribly wrong when one of the students acting as a corrections officer ends up dead. Crews (Damian Lewis) and Reese (Sarah Shahi) are in a race against the clock to find the killer. As they interview both prisoners and guards, the detectives discover the social experiment may have done more damage than good. Meanwhile, determined to figure out Jack Reese’s (Victor Rivers) connection to his case, Crews obsesses over a recording he obtained from a wiretap he placed on Reese. Donal Logue, Adam Arkin and Brent Sexton also star.
- On Sunday, September 28th the History Channel in the US will show 8 of the 10 episodes of Band of Brothers starring Damian Lewis. (They are broadcasting episodes 3 through 10 – go figure!)
