Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Davis Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 2, 2012 Now, I get it. The producers of CASTLE are busy throwing a massive monkey wrench into the whole Castle/Beckett couple thing to ratchet up the drama for the next six weeks so that they can have a massively explosive season finale/cliffhanger and they still won’t let Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) get together even after that because they’re still stuck in the whole relationship equals […]Read On »

SPARTACUS VENGEANCE has finished cutting a bloody swath across Friday nights on Starz, and the body count left in its wake is a considerable chunk of the recurring cast. Dustin Clare who plays Gannicus luckily was not one of the casualties, and the actor has now done two series of the hit show, VENGEANCE and the prequel series GODS OF THE ARENA. Pre-production has already started on the third season of the show, but ASSIGNMENT X got the chance to chat with Clare about returning to a whole new world in this second season of the on-going series. The actor […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 1, 2012 One of the things I have loved most about ONCE UPON A TIME is that characters like The Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) have real reasons for being evil. Note, I didn’t say good reasons, after all, good reasons take the stuffin’s out of being evil and that can put a nasty hit on your cred as an evil character, but in “The Stable Boy,” we finally see where Regina gets it all, too. The episode […]Read On »

Stars: Gavin DeGraw, Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Maria Menounos, Sherri Shepard, Jack Wagner, Jaleel White Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: April 2, 2012 Tonight on DANCING WITH THE STARS was the most emotional night ever in the history of the show. And that’s including last year when J.R. Martinez beautifully danced the Rumba on DWTS’s “Most Memorable Year” night. The tears were flowing and the scores were glowing! Goodman, who admitted to being in a good mood, never gave anyone less than an 8! I am not sure that has […]Read On »


TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Party On, Garth”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Terry David Mulligan Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 30, 2012 Sometimes when SUPERNATURAL tries to do a funny episode, it pushes too hard. However, the tone of “Party On, Garth,” written by Adam Glass and directed by Phil Sgriccia, hits just the right notes. The premise combines two seeming SUPERNATURAL inevitabilities – a J-horror ghost and a monster (in this case, the aforementioned ghost) that can only be seen by people who are drunk. Garth (DJ Qualls), […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: J. Miller Tobin     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 With “The Murder of One”, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES solves some old problems, but in doing so makes things even more complicated for our gang in Mystic Falls. At the end of last episode Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had the last pieces of the mystical white oak tree in the form of a Mystic Falls Bridge sign. The big plan is to make the sign […]Read On »

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Steven S. DeKnight, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Jesse Warn Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 So endeth SPARTACUS VENGEANCE. What a glorious and bloody end everything came to. “Wrath of the Gods” has so many deeply satisfying moments, not only tying up loose ends from the original series, but also from the prequel. Following hot on the heels of several main character deaths in the last episode let’s take a tally of who gets hacked off in this one. List […]Read On »


TV Review: GRIMM – Season 1 – “Island of Dreams”

Stars: David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee Writers David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Director: Rob Bailey Network: NBC, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 31, 2012 NBC is not doing GRIMM any favors with constantly preempting it and sending it on long hiatuses. The show is one of their major success stories for the network this year – and it’s been doing it in the dead zone of Friday night programming opposite two other similar genre shows FRINGE and SUPERNATURAL. It’s a shame, because if they could find a […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Jeff Pinkner & Akiva Goldsman Director: Frederick E.O. Toye Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 After a couple of solid weeks, the “Nothing As it Seems” episode of FRINGE takes a detour in monster-of-the week territory that just seems to out-of-place in the FRINGE universe. “Nothing As It Seems” revisits a previous case from Peter’s original timeline about the man who turns into a monstrous humanoid porcupine. That case is revived in the new timeline, but things are drastically different. What we […]Read On »
