Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Dichen Lachman, Susanna Fournier, Kyle Schmid, Tracy Spiridakos, Jon Cor, Martin Thibaudeau, Deena Aziz, Amber Goldfarb Writer: Lisa Rudolph, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Charles Biname Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 13, 2012 The good thing about “Addicted to Love” is that all of the continuing plotlines intensify within the episode. The bad thing about “Addicted to Love” is that the plotlines are so far entirely separate, to the point where BEING HUMAN feels more …Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Amann Director: Bryan Spicer Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 13, 2012 The interesting thing about “Pandora,” the first of a two-part CASTLE, is that it’s not about whodunit. We see that in the first scene, as a man comes crashing through an upper story window onto a car, then we see the killer looking through the window. Huh? Well, there’s lots of that floating around. Author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is the last to find out that his daughter Alexis …Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Theresa Rebeck Director: Michael Mayer Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: February 6, 2012 After an amazing premiere episode, SMASH settles into its second episode “The Callback” with the same great writing and directing and adds some more drama to the mix. Above all, the series knows who these characters are and the actors fit them like a glove already (and we’re only two episodes in). That’s rare in network television, but that speaks volumes for the work that went into creating SMASH. As the title …Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Paraminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Leon Rippy Writer: Jennifer Johnson Director: Paul Edwards Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 13, 2012 “A couple of things … You just killed a good man and my legs hurt.” – Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on the ALCATRAZ episode “Paxton Petty” So that was pretty bad. The quote that I begin this review with was said toward the end of the episode “Paxton Petty” on ALCATRAZ but there were equally as bad lines throughout this episode but this one stuck out the most for …Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: February 12, 2012 OMG! “Skin Deep” is one of those episodes of ONCE UPON A TIME where I really, really wish this weren’t a no spoiler zone, because we find out something about Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) and I would so love to debate the issue. It’s a twist at the end, though, and it’s no fun to zap you that way. You will have to set your gag reflex on low, however, because the Disney references are really in your face. The episode …Read On »


TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Tarantella”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz Writers: Dan E. Fesman & Alan DiFiore Director: Peter Werner Network: NBC, airs Fridays Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 Consider “Tarantella” an episode somewhat higher than normal on the ick factor for GRIMM, not to mention the attempt at sad and tragic which felt like the writers had written themselves into a corner because there was no satisfactory way to end it. An art lover (Nicholas Gonzales) is talking to his girlfriend on the phone while he’s dissing the art at a gallery opening, and while …Read On »

Hershel (Scott Wilson) and his people reel from the permanent loss of the family and friends they …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Michael Blackman Beck, Jennifer Spence, Jakob Davies Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Mike Rohl Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2012 Often, SUPERNATURAL runs into problems when it tries to be deliberately funny, instead of just mixing the humor in with the horror. However, in “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie,” the script by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin strikes just the right notes of both humor and terror as Dean (Jensen Ackles) and especially Sam (Jared Padalecki) encounter a situation that’s bizarre even by …Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 4 – “Welcome to Westfield”

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: J.R. Orci and Graham Roland Director: David Straiton Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 10, 2012 It’s a shame TV-goers don’t know what they’re missing with FRINGE. No show has ever come this close to the creepiness and originality factor of THE X-FILES, while also forging ahead with its own unique storytelling. FRINGE has it all. This season has been about identity and who and what we are. It’s also dealt with the return of Peter (Joshua Jackson) from the nether-world of saving the …Read On »
