Luckily, the show itself is called GRIMM and thankfully it’s anything but. GRIMM is from ANGEL co-creator …Read On »

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Adam Baldwin, Joshua Gomez, Vic Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Bonita Friedericy Distributor: Warner Home Video Suggested Retail Price: $59.98 It’s hard to hate CHUCK, even when it sometimes veers wildly off course. Yet, when all is said and done, CHUCK – THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON still provided some pretty great episodes during a massive (and occasionally uneven) 24-episode season. 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 »


Movie Review: THE DOUBLE

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 »

Gee, like the Harmon house needs any help in that department. All sorts of entities turn up and things get even spookier …Read On »


TV Review: GOOD VIBES – Season 1 premiere – “Pilot”

Network: MTV, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 With so many animated series vying for audience attention on network and cable television, GOOD VIBES feels like it’s come a little too late to the party. It’s MTV’s companion piece of the return of BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD and it’s a nice fit – it has  similar scatological humor, but it also doesn’t break any new ground either. The premiere episode introduces us to the overweight Mondo (voice of Josh Gad). He’s just moved to the Sunny California beach town of Playa Del Toro with his hot mom Babs (Debi …Read On »


TV Review: Mike Judge’s BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD – Season 9 – “Werewolves of Highland” / “Crying”

Beavis and Butt-Head in BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD - Season 9 - "Crying" | ©2011 MTV

Network: MTV, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 After 13 seasons of KING OF THE HILL and three live action feature films, Mike Judge has resurrected his seminal 1990s MTV animated series BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD. For eight years, Mike Judge voiced these  dunder-headed creations – simpleton rockers who critiqued music videos and had an affinity for fire and frog baseball. The insidious laughter, the simple observations – it was actually quite funny and it got Judge in a lot of trouble when kids started taking their antics a little too literal. Now, with JERSEY SHORE and TEEN MOM all …Read On »

Smith Director: Guy Bee     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2011 After Nick’s (Louis Hunter) untimely demise last week on THE SECRET CIRCLE, I didn’t expect anything too terribly upbeat this week. There are some interesting additions to the interweaving plot that is building towards something big in the new episode “Wake” and of course another wave of new characters is introduced. So let’s start off …Read On »


TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Julie Plec & Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Rob Hardy    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2010 I am consistently pleased with the way that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is re-writing its own rules and making all kinds of changes in practically every episode. It seems like every single week the cliff-hanger this season is something completely unexpected and I love that about this show! “Smells like Teen Spirit” is no exception to the way the show is bending and twisting this season to …Read On »

Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie Director: Tim Hunter Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 First off, let me make a correction to last week’s episode, it turns out that when Lydia took that fall off her rooftop after fighting with the Grayson family bodyguard/hit man Frank (Max Martini), she survived. She’s in a coma, but alive. Whodathunk that? And Nolan (Gabriel Mann) does point out to Emily (Emily Van Camp) that it was kind of her fault. See, Emily had set it up so that it …Read On »
