Paulina Gaitan – pronounced GUY-tahn – was only nineteen years old when she filmed her role as the psychically attuned Jahel Valenzuela, daughter of the ship’s mechanic, in the ABC series THE RIVER, which airs Tuesdays at 9 PM. Although by now everyone involved in the expedition to find missing naturalist Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) has a pretty good idea that deadly supernatural forces are involved, Jahel is the only one with real insight into the dangerous ways in which local mythology and reality come together. The now-twenty-year-old Gaitan, a native of Mexico City, has starred in a number of …Read On »

Network: NBC, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: March 6, 2012 If you want to see why AMERICAN IDOL appears to be losing its mojo, you only have to tune into a few minutes of the battle rounds for THE VOICE in the appropriately titled “The Battles Begin.” Here, 48 contestants are paired up by each of the four coaches where they duke it out in a boxing ring-esque box on stage – dueling with their opponent to one-up the other person and also keep up with them during the harmonies of each particular song. The Battle Rounds look like they’ll …Read On »


TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Sonny Burnett”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 Fox burned off two episodes of ALCATRAZ on Monday, making my life hell since I gotta do both hours. The first episode “The Ames Bros.” had a good deal of mythology and flashbacks that made it interesting to a degree even with the payoff being (at least for now) lame. The second episode, “Sonny Burnett”, offered little to none of this and was more of the inmate-of-the-week centered on …Read On »


TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “Dreamy”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz Director: David Solomon Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 4, 2012 Did you know Grumpy’s original name was Dreamy? I don’t know why all the Disney references in ONCE UPON A TIME are so jarring, but they really go overboard in this episode called, appropriately enough, “Dreamy.” And you know it’s a key one because it’s written by the show’s creators. In Storybrooke, we’ve got Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) still reeling from the effects of the town’s gossip over her relationship with David (Josh Dallas), …Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 How much of a baddass is Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on ALCATRAZ? The guy must be in his ’70s (if we are to believe he was 20-something when he first began as a guard at the prison), yet could care less if he’s standing on a land mine, he gets shot and brushes it off as if a flesh wound and gets blown up by dynamite only to grumble …Read On »

In ABC’s THE RIVER, Tuesdays at 9 PM, a documentary crew sails along the Amazon River, seeking traces of missing naturalist Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) and finding a few traces – along with a whole lot of supernatural menace. The series is co-created by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY auteur Oren Peli and Michael R. Perry. While most of the characters have family or work ties to the missing Emmet, Eloise Mumford’s character Lena Landry is there seeking her own father, along with a sense of purpose. There was closure this past week to that part of her arc with the “Peaches” episode …Read On »


TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau”

Stars:David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Noberto Barba Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 2, 2012 The good news about GRIMM is it’s found a pretty comfortable weekly police procedural structure that always ends up involving monsters usually derived from the Grimm fairy tales. The bad news is the series tends to be a little redundant at times and the CGI-creature effects often take you out of the show. That said, “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau” is an okay episode that brings a little …Read On »


TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Libertus”

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Rick Jacobson  Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 24, 2012 I feel that “Libertus” in the line of episodes of SPARTACUS VENGEANCE is more than likely what many fans have been waiting for. This new season has been a slow build, allowing for the audience to adjust to the new actor playing Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), and now clearly that time is over as the action in this episode stands as testament. Crixus (Manu …Read On »
