TV mailbag

There are 198 comments on the Chicago Tribune story from Dec 30, 2007, titled TV mailbag. In it, Chicago Tribune reports that:

- What was the last series Dana Delany was on before she joined 'Desperate Housewives'? -- Peter Hopper, Chicago She had an abbreviated run as the mother of the young abduction victim in the NBC series 'Kidnapped.' The Emmy winner had moved to New York for that show, and after its early cancellation, she stayed to do a play before returning to the West Coast -- and the now tornado-ravaged Wisteria Lane -- on her current ABC series. - I am impressed with the acting of Poppy Montgomery on 'Without a Trace.' I know I saw her in some other television show or movie years ago. What are her other credits? -- Bart Bartholomew, West Bend, Wis. The Australian-born actress -- who, at this writing, was expecting her first child with actor boyfriend Adam Kaufman around Christmas -- was a regular on the mid-1990s show 'Relativity' and appeared on such other series as 'NYPD Blue' and 'Party of Five' before landing her first major starring role as Marilyn Monroe in the 2001 mini-series 'Blonde.' Montgomery followed that with a regular part as Ellie in the WB Network show 'Glory Days' (which also helped launch Emily VanCamp, later of 'Everwood' and now of 'Brothers & Sisters'), then 'Without a Trace' came very shortly afterward. Montgomery also starred in the fact-inspired 2005 Lifetime movie 'Murder in the Hamptons'; her theatrical films include 'Dead Man on Campus,' 'Life' and 'The Other Sister.' - 'A Christmas Carol' with Alastair Sim is my favorite version of the tale. Are there any plans to release it on DVD? -- Terry Burch, Monroe, Wash. Actually, it's already available on the VCI label. You may want to move fast if you want it now; many stores have specific displays of Christmas-related DVDs, and those tend to be taken down right after the holidays. - Will there be a season-two DVD set of 'Heroes'? -- Mark Green, Clifton, N.J. We're sure there will be, but regardless of when the NBC show starts up again after the writers strike, that set likely wouldn't come out until just before the series' third year begins. By that, we mean the full third year; creator-producer Tim Kring has been trying to position the second year's episodes that have aired so far as a season unto themselves, but any other new episodes that appear between now and spring still will be part of the second season. ----------- Send questions to: [email protected] .

That would be Colin Donnell and Chris O'Donnell. I don't see the resemblense, nor is their any mention of their relation on IMDB.

When will Rizzoli & Isles, Major Crimes and Longmeir be back? Also, when the networks have successful programs like these, why are they removing them for such long periods?

Will the series "Saving Hope" be returning, and if not, will they at least show an episode that resolves Charlie's dilemma?

Same way, new technology. It's just an average anyway, based on a select number of viewers, then percentaged out per capita.

I want to know why people type in all caps. It doesn't do anything but annoy the people reading it. I usually skip anything that's typed that way.

I have a bet going, so can you tell me who is right! Is there any relationship between Amy Ackles from Angel and she also starred in Supernatural, and Jensen Ackles who stars in Supernatural, and also is there any relationship between the late great superstar Richard Burton and Steve Burton (The Young and the Restless). So, who is right? Thank You. McKayla OBright Benwood, West Virginia
