Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Sallie Patrick Director: David Grossman Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 With Emily (Emily VanCamp) droning on about “Resurrection,” this episode of REVENGE opens with a flashback of young Emily (well, actually Amanda Clarke) riding in a station wagon with her mother Kara (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Young Amanda tells her mother that her daddy said she was sick, but there’s not much of a response and besides, it’s actually a dream and when Nolan (Gabriel Mann) tries to wake Emily up, she chokes him.

The caliber of dances tonight were off the charts good! I mean season finale good! Trying to juice up the show, the producers allowed the stars to choreograph the dances tonight as the creative directors of their and their partner’s moves. It worked smashingly! Most of the stars embraced the idea of …Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 It is fun to see that Regina (Lana Parilla) was a completely different person when she married Snow White’s father, and that she had her heart in the right place. But I can’t say that the “We Are Both” episode of ONCE UPON A TIME really gets us anywhere in the overall story telling. If anything, the episode foundered under too many waves of philosophizing. Now released from the curse that sent them all there, …Read On »

In this instance, an incendiary device is placed in a soft drink cup atop a car. When it detonates, the …Read On »

Movie Review: BUTTER

Rating: R Stars: Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone, Yara Shahidi Writer: Jason Micallef Director: Jim Field Smith Distributor: Radius/The Weinstein Co. Release Date: October 5, 2012 Satire is a particularly tough form of parody, and political satire is even tougher. Timing may not be everything, but there’s no question that having a point of reference that is still fresh in people’s minds is important. BUTTER is therefore handicapped by being too late to the table, but it might still salvage itself if it had something new to say. Instead, it tries …Read On »

Stars: Fred Armisen, Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Nasim Pedrad, Jay Pharoah, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Tim Robinson, Cecily Strong Network: NBC, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: October 6, 2012 It’s pretty clear, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE is officially struggling this year. The mix of the new and old cast members is a bit rocky, there are few stand-outs of the new crop and the writing, sadly, is absolutely atrocious. And with James Bond himself, Daniel Craig hosting, the prospects for a hilarious episode could have went either way, but after Craig’s …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Liane Balaban, Lissa Neptuno Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 3, 2012 It seems like Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and the SUPERNATURAL audience just can’t catch a break. Yes, the Season 8 opener, “We Need to Talk About Kevin” admirably gets to the fundamentals of this year’s arc right away and also swiftly reunites the brothers. For those who don’t remember, or are just tuning in, Sam and Dean were separated last …Read On »
