Stars: Matt Passmore, Carlos Gomez, Kiele Sanchez, Jordan Wall, Michelle Hurd Writer: Tom Garrigus Director: Jeff Bleckner Network: A&E, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: June 3, 2012 CBS and USA have set the bar and template for the police procedural. CBS plays it straight, for the most part, while USA has a little fun with it. And A&E has found a nice middle ground with their Florida-set series THE GLADES, now entering its third season. There’s something familiar, fluffy and a bit routine about THE GLADES. It has a great cast with Matt Passmore serving as the anchor of the …Read On »

Fox and found a way to make it the coolest high school monster show this side of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Season …Read On »

Interview: THE AVENGERS composer Alan Silvestri makes the Avengers assemble

If you’re looking for a composer whose genre soundtracks seem to be printed in four colors as opposed to written with musical notes, then Alan Silvestri’s scores would be equivalent to the bright hues that compose comic book art. From the brawny militarism of PREDATOR, ERASER and JUDGE DREDD to the mythic exploits of THE MUMMY RETURNS, VAN HELSING and BEOWULF, Alan Silvestri’s talents have grown from the disco motorcycle beats of CHiPS to becoming the embodiment of do-gooding orchestral might. It’s music that captures any big kid’s dream of fighting cosmic evil, role-playing that’s accomplished with massive symphonic themes …Read On »

Writer/director/producer Armando Iannucci loves political comedy. The Glasgow-born hyphenate is also known for non-political comedy, including several series of ALAN PARTRIDGE shows starring Steve Coogan as an inept talk show host. However, a lot of viewers know Iannucci’s work from THE THICK OF IT, his satire of the British corridors of power, currently airing on BBC America. IN THE LOOP, the film based on THE THICK OF IT that Iannucci directed and co-wrote, was nominated for an adapted screenplay Oscar. Now Iannucci has come to HBO with the half-hour comedy VEEP, which airs Sunday nights on the premium cable network. …Read On »

AMC’s series MAD MEN, now in its fifth season Sundays at 9 PM, has some things in common with its character Peggy Olson, played by Elisabeth Moss. When MAD MEN, created by Matthew Weiner, began its run in 2007, no one knew that it would turn out to be an award-winning juggernaut. Likewise, when Moss’ Peggy joined the Madison Avenue advertising firm then known as Sterling-Cooper in 1960, no one foresaw that she would become the company’s first female copywriter and one of the strongest people there. Moss has been nominated for the Supporting Actress in a Drama Series three …Read On »

Stars: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin Writers: Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, Hossein Amini Director: Rupert Sanders Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: June 1, 2012 After Julia Roberts tore through scenery in the campy MIRROR, MIRROR early this year, prospects for the second big studio reboot of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale certainly didn’t look promising. However, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN has just the right amount of reinvention and visual panache, that it turns out to be a pretty decent movie. The story is way too familiar, which is one of its big drawbacks, but director …Read On »

Kidd and Sonya Wilson; Part 2: Tim Kring and Rob Fresco Director: Part 1: Nelson McCormick; Part 2: Greg Beeman Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 31, 2012 The thing about TOUCH is that you get the feeling that this is the show HEROES could have been if Tim Kring (and/or his writers) hadn’t hooked into their darker sides. There’s a dark side to this show, what with the big, bad conspiracy by Aster Corps. to use Jake for its own purposes …Read On »

DVD Review: THE RIVER – THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

THE RIVER - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON | ©2012 ABC Studios

Stars: Bruce Greenwood, Joe Anderson, Leslie Hope, Eloise Mumford, Paul Blackthorne, Thomas Kretschmann, Daniel Zacapa, Shaun Parkes, Paulina Gaitan, Jeff Galfer Distributor: Buena Vista Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 Release Date: May 22, 2012 ABC took a big chance on the found footage series THE RIVER. With only eight episodes, it was a perfect amount of time to create a mythology and tell a story without too much filler. Of course, the format didn’t hook audiences, but I suspect that had more to do with the need to see the whole series in one big eight-hour chunk. Now, THE …Read On »
