Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin & Jay Beattie Director: Matt Earl Beesley Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: January 11, 2012 One of the issues of writing about REVENGE is that we have two characters who have switched names, and in “Infamy,” this becomes an issue.

The third season of Fox’s science-fiction series FRINGE ended on a cliff-hanger. Our universe and a parallel universe were both eroding due to a recently-discovered phenomenon that had been caused decades ago. The source of the problem was a breach created by Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) who, when his son died in this world, brought his parallel-universe son Peter over to this world to save him – and then kept him. The now-adult Peter Bishop, played by Joshua Jackson, put himself into a machine to mend both universes. It worked – but Peter blinked out of existence, and no …Read On »

[Martinez] winning it, it was a wonderful storyline,” says Lee. “Look how much THE BACHELOR has lasted and done so strongly for us. It’s romantic. It’s right in the heart of our brand, so I personally …Read On »
