Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Amann Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 24, 2012 Think of “After the Storm” as the part two of last season’s CASTLE finale “Always,” which you may recall I was decidedly miffed about. And still am.  Yet, despite teases from the network, it does look like we finally have a couple working out their relationship rather than the whole will they/won’t they routine. And this is one jam-packed episode. I speculated last spring that the planned hit on Det. …Read On »


TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “The Power of Three” – Review #2

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall Director:  Douglas Mackinnon   Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2012 Not every episode of DOCTOR WHO can be absolute gold. There have to be slow episodes, talking heads episodes, and yes even somewhat dull episodes. “The Power of Three” is not the best episode in the new run, but it’s not the worst since the series restarted in 2005. It’s just kind of a yawn episode with some amusing moments here and there. I really feel that since the Ponds are leaving next episode that this …Read On »

PARTNERS poster - Season 1 | ©2012 CBS

Stars: Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh Writers: David Kohan, Max Mutchnick Director: James Burrows Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 24, 2012 One of the biggest surprises about the new CBS comedy PARTNERS is how safe it plays its premise. That turns out to be both a good and a bad thing. It follows architects Louis (Michael Urie) and Joe (David Krumholtz) as they navigate their long-term professional career and their own personal love lives. The twist (if you can call it that) is Louis is gay and Joe is straight. In the pilot, Joe …Read On »

Boy, the judges aren’t kidding when they said they expect more from these “dancers”. I have never seen them score so harshly for the very first show of a season. It’s clearly evident that past champs and runners up aren’t being giving a free pass this …Read On »

TV Review: HELL ON WHEELS – Season 2 – “Purged Away with Blood”

Stars: Anson Mount, Colm Meaney, Common, Dominique McElligott, Tom Noonan, Christopher Heyerdahl Writer:  Tony Gayton & Thomas Brady  Director: Joe Gayton       Network: AMC, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: September 16, 2012 HELL ON WHEELS is a tough show to watch sometimes. Not because of bad writing or anything negative, but because the subject matter is so visceral and harsh that it takes a bit to sit and watch it through to the terminus point. A perfect example of that for me is last episode when they were digging the bullet out of Durant (Colm Meaney). I’m weird. I can handle …Read On »

With Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosting (he did a fabulous job the last time he appeared on SNL), delivering something funny should not have been a problem. Yet, with all the good …Read On »

Britney just so happens to be a judge on THE X FACTOR, so milking her songbook is a no brainer and can offer up some nice synergy …Read On »
