Joshua Jackson is one of the stars of Showtime’s THE AFFAIR.

In Season 2, the series, created by Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi, expands to include two more perspectives, that of Noah’s wife Helen (Maura Tierney) and Alison’s husband Cole, played by Jackson.

Stars: Carlos PenaVega, Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, Alek Skarlatos, Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: Nov. 23rd, 2015 What an emotional night on DANCING WITH THE STARS: The Season Finale, part one.  Bindi Irwin’s  & Derek Hough’s Freestyle was a tear jerker with everyone ending up sobbing as she danced her little heart out in honor of her dear departed Dad.

One thing we do know is that …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Teach Grant, Sarah-Jane Redmond, Adam Cohen Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 21, 2015 The supposed gimmick in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Baby” is that it’s from the point of view of Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) beloved Chevy Impala. This is a decent idea as far as it goes – we’re in Season 11 of a gonzo show, no reason the car can’t have a viewpoint. Trouble is, no one seems to want to go on record, …Read On »

Subkoff also displays visual style to burn, setting her story in a uniquely-structured house …Read On »
