Sue Ellen Ewing is one of television’s great survivor characters. Let’s face it, to make it through eleven seasons of DALLAS, which ran on CBS from 1978 through 1991, plus two telefilms (1996’s DALLAS: J.R. RETURNS and 1998’s DALLAS: WAR OF THE EWINGS), to say nothing of marriage to Larry Hagman’s infamous J.R. Ewing, there’s nothing else she could be. Linda Gray, the actress who so indelibly played Sue Ellen, now finds herself returning to the role yet again in TNT’s revival/continuation of DALLAS, which premieres tonight. In the new edition, developed by executive producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael Robin, …Read On »

MAD MEN has its fifth-season finale tonight on AMC. Created by Matt Weiner, the series about the careers and personal lives of Madison Avenue advertising executives has won Emmys and viewer loyalty One of the other things MAD MEN has done is made a sex symbol and fashion icon of Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Holloway Harris. Over the seasons, Joan has risen from being a secretary to, this season, a partner in the firm. Hendricks, born in Tennessee and raised in Idaho, acquired a cult following for her role as the many-named con woman Saffron on FIREFLY and was …Read On »

As the first season of AMC’s THE KILLING, adapted from the Danish series FORBRYDELSEN by executive producer Veena Sud, was drawing to a close, it seemed more and more clear that Billy Campbell’s character, mayoral candidate Darren Richmond, was guilty of murdering Rosie Larsen. But then it was revealed that one of the investigating detectives, Joel Kinnaman’s Stephen Holder, had tampered with evidence to incriminate Richmond, so THE KILLING’s first season ended with nobody knowing who killed Rosie Larsen. This lack of closure angered a number of viewers, who felt they had been led to believe the killer would be …Read On »

The fifth season of MAD MEN has been interesting. There have been lots of changes and losses and even some gains. The series still manages to keep me completely entertained and ready for the next episode as soon as the current one is ending. Since there have been so many random WOW moments this season (and the finale hits Sunday night), ASSIGNMENT X decided it was time to look back at the best (and in some cases most disturbing moments) of Season 5. 10. Megan gets a musical introduction Making sure to show that Megan (Jessica Pare) is not just …Read On »
