Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre & Robert Rovner Director: Steve Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: August 8, 2012 The build up was intense, the results, not quite what I expected. Still, the DALLAS Season One finale “Revelations” was only partially intriguing, somewhat suspenseful and not hardly at all surprising. Perhaps, it was because my expectations were too high. Or maybe it was because I was led to believe I could expect above average greatness, every time, ever week. This week, arguably, the …Read On »

Stars:  Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn Writer: Sam Catlin Director: Rian Johnson Network: AMC, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: August 6, 2012 “Fifty-One” is perhaps the most harrowing episode of BREAKING BAD this season, as it deals primarily with the toll Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston’s) year-long transformation has taken on his wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn).  Since Walt’s become a power-hungry madman, we were aware that this toll was heavy, but this episode features several gasp-worthy moments that is notable not only for the depiction of Walt’s depravity, but for its abject sadness. Some of those difficult domestic moments include: …Read On »

Stars: Matthew Perry, Laura Benanti, Julie White, John Cho Writer: Scott Silveri, series created by Scott Silveri Director: Todd Holland Network: NBC, Tuesdays Original Airdate: August 8, 2012 As Los Angeles Times reviewer Mary McNamara just observed, television has done very well with both psychotherapy (FRASIER, THE BOB NEWHART SHOW) and Matthew Perry (FRIENDS) in the half-hour comedy genre. Putting the two together seems like a good idea. The first twist in GO ON is that Perry’s character, snarky and closed-off radio sportscaster Ryan, is a patient rather than the therapist, which works very well. When we meet Ryan, his …Read On »

He wanted revenge, and the Kanima offered that. It wasn’t intentional, but it happened. …Read On »
