In tonight’s episode “The Thing You Love Most”, as Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Regina (Lana Parilla) go head to …Read On »

Showalter Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: October 28, 2011   SUPERNATURAL has done some crazy things in its time, but would an episode called “Slash Fiction” really be about what the title implies?

Season 4 gets off to a rocky start with Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) constantly having relationship woes as they deal with their forthcoming wedding. This is where …Read On »

Stars: Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Odette Yustman, Stephen Moyer, Stana Katic, Martin Sheen Writers: Michael Brandt & Derek Haas Director: Michael Brandt Distributor: Image Entertainment Release Date: October 28, 2011 THE DOUBLE is a thriller set in Washington, D.C. that involves both the CIA and the FBI, yet is virtually apolitical. The movie indeed invokes the kinds of spy dramas of yore, like THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE and NO WAY OUT, where a search for an enemy agent leads to all sorts of twists and turns. Writers Michael Brandt & Derek Haas make a concession to present-day filmmaking expectations and pack …Read On »
