A round-up of this week’s pilot and series TV casting and sales!
This episode seems to me to be a turning point for the series, as we finally start to understand who put the Dome over Chester’s Mill and to what end. And I’ll explain why this revelation is the worst thing to happen to the series thus far!
After 2.5 seasons, Hannibal catches up to its source material and it’s (still) good so far.
Aquarius takes a look at journalistic ethics in It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding). A Hispanic editor at The Times discovers there is a closet Cuban detective working at LAPD.
Last week we saw the Pope/Mason conflict come to a head, with Pope shaving his head and going rogue. At the end he captures Hal in order to lure Tom himself to a place where he can kill him, most likely after making him watch his oldest son die. Either way, we know this doesn’t end well.
It’s fair to say that, for those of us who haven’t given up watching, this past episode of True Detective was the best so far. The reason for this was that finally the main story line clashed with genuine character moments, upping the ante for the audience in a way that it previously hadn’t.
Seven female students get their Wi-Fi back and Tweet Tweet Tweet, until locked down in the embassy.
We’ve reached the final episode of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and though I’m sad for it to be over, I’m happy they did the book justice. Everything comes together in the end to bring the two magicians back together, united to use English Magic to defeat the Gentleman who created so much havoc in their lives.
I’m not sure how to really talk about Wayward Pines any more. The disdain I feel for this show is greater than anything I’ve experienced in a really long time. Getting through the final episode was basically a hate-watching extravaganza, and the twist at the end (because with Shyamalan there’s always a twist) was laughable at best.
The series finds Sanderson (Lowe) at a crossroads in life, after his long-running hit show comes to an end.
In this week’s episode of Under The Dome, we get to see just how much it has become Invasion of the Body Snatchers. This episode mostly seems to be about showing the viewer who is and who not a pod person. We get to see vignettes from all of the freethinking citizens of Chester’s Mill and how they react to being the minority in town.
Jonathan goes mad, and challenges the Gentleman directly in this week’s episode of Jonathan Strange And Mr. Norrell.
Bill Simmons, the popular sports personality who was let go from ESPN in May, will host a weekly talk show on HBO as part of a broader deal with the premium cable provider.
In the first season’s penultimate episode, Wayward Pines is in revolt and falling apart at the seams.
Falling Skies at its outset was meant to be a popcorny alien world-takeover tale, some impressive special effects for TV, a lot of explosions, and not that much character development. At its heart is Noah Wyle, a deft and talented actor who is easily likeable, which has always helped set the show apart from some of the cheesy drivel on SyFy.
In every single episode of the second season thus far, we’ve been forced to sit through almost an hour of gloomy glances, brooding silences, nihilistic allusions, and a lot of moody tunes from a solo singer/songwriter playing to a mostly empty bar before ANYTHING of substance happens. The same goes for this episode.
The Israeli Prime Minister rests the fate of his nation and Walter’s grand plan on a race between his grandchildren… so please, Swim, Shmuley, Swim!
A Netflix original series that chronicles notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar as he evades DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña and fights fellow drug lords for control of the cocaine distribution empire.
Aquarius gets bloody with a Christmas cop-killer on the loose, one targeting police officers who patrol in black-white pairs. ‘Why?’ indeed.
