Complications abound in Season 2 of FX’s drama THE BRIDGE, Wednesdays at 10 PM. The series was developed for U.S. television by Elwood Reid & Meredith Stiehm, based on the Danish BRON, but this year, THE BRIDGE diverges greatly from its source material. In Season 1 of THE BRIDGE, Demian Bichir’s character, Mexican police detective Marco Ruiz, suffered the loss of his son at the hands of his murderous ex-partner. Marco’s quest for revenge has caused him to make a deal with one of Ciudad Juarez’s biggest crime lords. To hold up his end of the agreement, Marco must return […]Read On »

MASTERS OF SEX, now in its second season, Sunday nights on Showtime, dramatizes the story of real-life sexual pioneers William Masters, played by Michael Sheen, and Virginia Johnson, played by Lizzy Caplan. In addition to embarking on their studies in the 1950s, when the subject was almost forbidden, Masters and Johnson had quite complicated personal lives. At the time we meet them, Masters is married to the devoted Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald), who resorts to somewhat drastic means to have a baby with her husband; Johnson is a twice-divorced mother of two. At Masters’ suggestion, he and Johnson embark on sexual […]Read On »

In 2013’s surprise hit SHARKNADO, Ian Ziering played heroic Fin Shepard, who almost single-handedly – with a chainsaw in that hand – saved Los Angeles from a tornado full of sharks. In SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which premieres on Syfy Channel Wednesday, July 30, Ziering is back as Fin. Fin and reconciled ex-wife April Wexler (Tara Reid, also reprising her original SHARKNADO role) are on their way to New York City to promote April’s book about surviving the previous year’s event. However, they don’t even land in the Big Apple before they’re once again grappling with storm-borne Great Whites, […]Read On »

A strange coincidence has landed Judd Hirsch at Syfy Channel’s Beverly Hilton poolside screening of SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE for the benefit of the Television Critics Association press tour. The sequel to last summer’s surprise Syfy hit is being projected onto a gigantic blank wall next to the pool prior to its Syfy Channel premiere on Wednesday, July 30. The atmosphere is deliberately drive-in theatre, with couches decorated to look like car seats and popcorn and soda stations (as well as regular drive-in dinner fare). Hirsch was nominated for an Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in ORDINARY PEOPLE, […]Read On »

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas.

National Geographic Channel’s GOING DEEP WITH DAVID REES, Mondays nights at 10 and 10:30 PM, is, as host and co-creator Rees says, “an honest to God how-to show.” GOING DEEP explores in depth things people tend to take for granted, like how to open doors, tie shoelaces and make ice cubes. During National Geographic’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour, Rees sits down to delve into GOING DEEP. AX: How did you get into the idea of studying the origins of everything? DAVID REES: I had an artisanal pencil-sharpening business and I got a book deal to write […]Read On »

Comic-Con 2014: Hand’s on ALIEN: ISOLATION video game – SDCC

  One of the most anticipated games of 2014 is the survival horror game ALIEN: ISOLATION, a game that promises to bring back the fear and claustrophobia of the original movie. During Comic-Con 2014, I was given a three-minute demo of the game inside a ginormous alien egg, where I was able to test out – for only three minutes – the game and get a feel for the dark, brooding environment. First off, the whole process of stepping into an ALIEN egg is just plain weird but cool at the same time. But it definitely sets the stage for […]Read On »
