Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writers: Bruce Rasmussen Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 20th, 2012 It takes no time at all for all the power playing and scheming to begin on DALLAS, just like where it left off 20 years ago. Quickly things become apparent that although nearly two decades have passed, very little has changed. There are a few new faces but the game is the same and oh what a game to be played. J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) confronts …Read On »

Breaking News: CBS announces DANCING ON THE STARS show in fake press release

CBS eye logo

If it were April 1st, we’d think this was a pretty funny April Fool’s joke on behalf of CBS, but it’s June 20, and frankly it’s still funny. CBS has just put out a press release touting  their “supposedly” new shows DANCING ON THE STARS where celebrities dance on the grave of dead celebrities and a comedy called POST-MODERN FAMILY (which are plays on the ABC series DANCING WITH THE STARS and MODERN FAMILY. A CBS spokesman has confirmed that both of these shows are fake and this press release is the network’s tongue-in-cheek response to losing their legal battle …Read On »

Car Manufacturer: Mazda Model: 2012 Mazda3 4-DOOR Suggested Retail Price: $24,970 ASSIGNMENT X tackles our latest car review as we test drove the 2012 MAZDA3 FOUR-DOOR. Keep in mind, we’re not car experts, but that’s the point of the review – we represent the average consumer so we won’t be talking tech, we’ll be talking about what we feel makes the car cool. “Zoom Zoom” has been a catch phrase of Mazda for some time and the 2012 MAZDA3 4-DOOR lives up to that name and then some. A nice, compact, smooth ride, the MAZDA3 is a sporty four-door without …Read On »

So far he’s been: Abducted (voluntarily mind you) by aliens Tortured by aliens Shot Had some creature pulled from his eye Blow up Yet, he keeps on ticking. There are two things going on in “Shall We Gather at the River.” The first is …Read On »

Network: ABC, Airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 18, 2012 ABC has long been trying to start a reality show franchise that it can own outside of THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE and DANCING WITH THE STARS powerhouses. They have tried to copy THE AMAZING RACE and failed. They had a great reality show in THE MOLE that never seemed to get off the ground in terms of viewers even though it was awesome. Now, they are trying to copy BIG BROTHER with THE GLASS HOUSE. Of course, this reality show made headlines before even airing because of the lawsuit …Read On »

Robert Taylor in LONGMIRE - Season 1 - "A Damn Shame" | ©2012 A&E

Stars: Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Cassidy Freeman, Bailey Chase, Adam Bartley, Louanne Stephens  Writer: Hunt Baldwin & John Coveny, Based on the novels by Craig Johnson Director: Christopher Chupack Network: A&E, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: June 17, 2012 “A Damn Shame” actually has a lot of flavor and content from the LONGMIRE Craig Johnson novel “The Dark Horse.” Like the pilot episode this one takes more elements from the source material and then makes them work in the 45 minute frame than a single episode of the series allows. I have to agree with a lot …Read On »

I did not see it when it aired last year, I did not watch it on DVD. So I am a fresh face to all of this, so forgive me if something seems obvious but isn’t. Here’s what I got from the opening montage from Season One: Aliens pull an INDEPENDENCE DAY on us. Steal …Read On »

CD Review: Haley Reinhart – LISTEN UP!

Haley Reinhart - LISTEN UP! | ©2012 Interscope Records/19 Entertainment

Distributor: Interscope Records/19 Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $7.99 As AMERICAN IDOL has de-volved into an on-going parade of white guy with guitar winners and even blander Top 10 finalists, Season 10 did prove to have a diamond in the rough. Her name was Haley Reinhart. She wasn’t country. She wasn’t a Whitney clone. She was an original with a jazzy sound, a great look and unfortunately too much criticism heaved on by the biased judges that made sure she didn’t get past the third position in the competition even though she deserved to be in the final two (and honestly, …Read On »

CD Review: SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR soundtrack

SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR soundtrack | ©2012 Milan Records

Daniel Licht certainly knows clever ways to kill people in the company of DEXTER, not to mention a gore-splattered musical past that includes HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE, THINNER and BAD MOON. It’s a set of eerie skills that suit him well for entering the video game netherworld for the first time with two entries into the SILENT HILL mythos. Up first is SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR, which has an escaped convict being thrown into this twisted Twilight Zone after a Richard Kimble-style bus crash. Starting off DOWNPOUR with a bang is a catchy theme song by Korn’s Jonathan Davis, whose thrash makes it …Read On »
