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 »

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 »

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 »

THE KILLING begins its second season tonight, Sunday, on AMC in a two-hour block starting at 8 PM before settling into its regular timeslot at 9 PM next Sunday. Based on the hit Danish series FORBRYDELSEN and developed for American television by Veena Sud. THE KILLING Season 2 follows the homicide investigation of the murder of Seattle-area teenager Rosie Larsen, as well as the crime’s devastating effect on her family. A lot of people were irate that the first season ended without the killer being revealed (perhaps especially because the advertising had so strongly implied the revelation would occur). However, …Read On »

Distributor: Columbia Records Suggested Retail Price: $11.99 (regular edition), $12.99 (special edition) When you have so many great albums under your belt like Bruce Springsteen (BORN IN THE U.S.A., DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, THE RISING), you can pretty much do whatever you want and it isn’t going to tarnish your legacy. There have been some near misses, some grand experiments and a handful of very good songs over the years from Springsteen, but it was that spirit of experimentation that kept The Boss from getting stale even if consistency wasn’t always the mission. Thankfully WRECKING BALL remedies all …Read On »

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 »


CD Review: BACK TO GAYA soundtrack

BACK TO GAYA soundtrack | ©2012 Movie Score Media

As with the final works of such ailing composers as Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Kamen didn’t let sickness diminish the talents that first landed him on the Hollywood map, namely a flair for orchestral writing. And like the equally missed Goldsmith, Kamen’s memorable swan song would be for an animated film. BACK TO GAYA (otherwise known by its equally confounding titles of  THE SNURKS  or BOO, ZINO & THE SNURKS) is no LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION or the Kamen-scored IRON GIANT for that matter. And that’s one big reason why this otherwise terrific soundtrack has languished in obscurity until Movie …Read On »
