TV’s Last Suppers: Locke, Cylon Six & Tony

www.moviesmackdown.comOkay, we understand that we are called MOVIE SMACKDOWN… but we’re going to be expanding our “Mission Statement” in 2010 and, from time-to-time, Smacking television, too. Our rationale is that TV is really just a little movie, right? Anyway, that’s our story and, as they say, we’re sticking with it.

We just couldn’t pass up this visual Smack on one of TV’s new trends, publicity stills that use the theme of “The Last Supper.” The latest to try this is ABC, promoting its final season of “Lost” but we’ve also seen Sci-Fi (SyFy) try it with the last pass at “Battlestar Galactica” and HBO in its first season (we think) with “The Sopranos.” If you click on the montage below, you can look at it in much fuller resolution.

About Bryce Zabel 196 Articles
Drawing inspiration from career experiences as a CNN correspondent, TV Academy chairman, creator of five produced primetime network TV series, and fast-food frycook, Bryce is the Editor-in-Chief of "Movie Smackdown." While he freely admits to having written the screenplay for the reviewer-savaged "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation," he hopes the fact that he also won the Writers Guild award a couple of years ago will cause you to cut him some slack. That, plus the fact that he has a new StudioCanal produced feature film, “The Last Battle,” shooting this summer in Europe about the end of World War II. He's also a member of the Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild, and a past enthusiast of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. His new what-if book series, “Breakpoint,” just won the prestigious Sidewise Award for Alternate History, and has so far tackled JFK not being assassinated and The Beatles staying together.

  1. I love you, Rodney. Not as much as Bryce, but I love you.
    Prepare for my Smack of these two epic series.

  2. I love you, Bryce. I love you.

  3. You cannot beat a woman in a red dress. Battlestar by a long shot.

  4. #1 Battlestar, because the red dress can’t be beat and she’s being called out by someone. #2 The Sopranos, because Tony and the other characters looks so iconic. #3 Lost, because it’s trying to be like the others but doesn’t quite have the gravitas because the characters look like they don’t quite understand why they’re staring at Locke.

  5. I call Battlestar Galactica versus Lost.
