Some actors do one-man shows based on all the characters they’ve played over their career. Australian actor John Noble could probably do a one-man show based simply on all the variations he’s played on his FRINGE character Walter Bishop. Walter is introduced in Season One as a brilliant scientist who has had a breakdown and become deeply eccentric, owing to secrets having to do with his son Peter (Joshua Jackson) and FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv). We learn that Peter is actually from an alternate universe, taken by Walter to save his life after Walter’s son Peter died in …Read On »

They’re also a breeze, writing-wise, since there’s so much effort put into cramming in more than the normal allotment of music in the episode, there’s less time to really flesh out the story elements as well …Read On »

On THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, now in its third season on the CW Thursdays at 8 PM, there is a great deal of brooding among the vampires, the werewolves, the hybrids, the humans and even the ghosts. Standing apart from the angsty crowd is Candice Accola’s character Caroline Forbes. True, Caroline got turned into a vampire while in high school at the start of second season, and various people have tried to kill her again thereafter, but she has managed to maintain a sense of humor and a sunny (at least metaphorically) outlook most of the time, although her recent birthday …Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne Writer: Elizabeth Sarnof Director: Brad Anderson Network: Fox, Airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: January 30, 2012 The biggest question coming out of the “Cal Sweeney” episode of ALCATRAZ is: What’s behind door No. 1? While the episode itself was another inmate of the week returning to modern day in order to cause havoc on San Francisco, kill a whole bunch of people and steal loot. It turns out that Sweeney (the inmate in question) wasn’t just wooing lonely tellers in order to get swag but instead a …Read On »

Nonetheless, in this episode of ONCE UPON A TIME, “Fruit of the Poisonous Tree,” Regina (Lana Parilla) is getting more than simply scary. It all starts in the modern world, when a storm breaks down young Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) wooden castle play yard by the ocean. Not only does Regina get all over Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) for …Read On »

The actor spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this sit down interview where he spoke about his five years on the show, and, of course, if he thinks there might be CHUCK feature films in the future. ZACHARY LEVI: Who knows if there will ever be a CHUCK movie. The show lends itself to be a film. Every episode was like a mini-movie. It would be kind …Read On »
