Rating: TV-MA Stars: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Lauren Velez, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, David Zayas, James Remar, Aimee Garcia, Geoff Pierson, Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, Billy Brown, Josh Cooke Writer: Karen Campbell, series based on the books by Jeff Lindsay Director: Seith Mann Network: Showtime, Sundays @ 9 PM Release Date: November 27, 2011 Magic is the art of misdirection, so one could call this season of DEXTER a bit magical, given the revelation at the end of the episode “Get Gellar.” Certainly, Edward James Olmos as Gellar has seemed far too fierce and solid to be anything …Read On »

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Salvatore Stabile Director: Bethany Rooney Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 23, 2011 Maybe it’s because this aired on the night before Thanksgiving and some of us were a little distracted, but “Suspicion” was a rather flat episode for REVENGE. It felt like things were being set up, but not much was actually happening. Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is trying to control her counterpart Amanda (Margarita Levieva), who in turn is going after local pub owner Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler). And this could cause significant problems for Emily’s great …Read On »

Skilled writers have been known to crash and burn once we know what’s behind the evil in literature and on screen. However, AMERICAN HORROR STORY co-creator Ryan …Read On »

Judges: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox Original Telecast: November 22, 2011 THE X FACTOR was all about giving thanks this week, with the contestants picking songs that mean something to them and inspired them the most. Of course there was the good, the bad and the emotional – and picking on singers now feels like I’m taking cheap shots with it being an inspirational week, but with two people going home this week, there isn’t time for people to skate by. Every note, every song choice, every statement uttered is going to determine he should …Read On »

Stars: Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: Nov. 22, 2011 In an exciting finale to a nail-biting season, DANCING WITH THE STARS completes season 13 with J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff being crowned the DWTS champions! At times, throughout the season, it seemed Martinez had that mirror ball trophy all to himself, but a few guffaws and an injured ankle led some to speculate maybe his clenching that coveted award wasn’t such a sure thing after all. In the end, it all worked out for the war veteran and now part-time actor as …Read On »

Morgan Sheppard Writer: Anika Lisette Mittman, series based on the books by Jeff Lindsay Director: Ernest Dickerson Network: Showtime, Sundays @ 9 PM Release Date: November 20, 2011 In DEXTER, it’s rare for the title character (Michael C. Hall) to be brought up totally short, but that’s what happens in a scene in “Sins of Omission,” which provides an unexpected grace note. Dexter is searching for the whereabouts …Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: David M. Barrett Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 22, 2011 At first it seems like the normal banter between Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author consultant Richard Castle (Nathan Filion) as they walk to the crime scene in the “Kill Shot” episode of CASTLE . Then Beckett lets it drop that she’s still in physical therapy as part of her recovery from the gun shot wound she got at the end of last season when a …Read On »

Stars: Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: November 21st, 2011 Before you know it – Bam! It’s here already – the DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 13 finals, or as Derek Hough may put it, just another day on the dance floor. Hough has made the finals four times with three wins. If he and partner Ricki Lake win tomorrow he will have won the mirror ball trophy a record four times and he will have never lost in the finals. However, that’s a big “if”. He and Lake have stiff competition with …Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Wallflower”

Seth Gabel in FRINGE - Season 4 - "Wallflower" | ©2011 Fox/Liane Hentscher

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Matt Pits & Justin Doble Director: Anthony Hemingway Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: November 18, 2011 FRINGE can get strange, but with “Wallflower,” the series’ season four midseason finale, it gets downright perplexing. It isn’t because it’s bad, but because it ends up telling a rather strange, almost tragic story that dovetails into a major mythology turning point, rather than any big reveal of the week’s mystery. The story begins with an invisible man running around creating havoc and leaving his victims completely white …Read On »
