RIZZOLI & ISLES, the TNT series starring Angie Harmon as Boston Police homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander as her best friend, forensic pathologist Maura Isles, is now airing its third season Tuesday nights at 9 PM. Executive producer Janet Tamaro, who adapted Gerritsen’s characters for the television series, is at present on one of the RIZZOLI & ISLES key sets, that of the cop bar the Dirty Robber. “This is its third incarnation,” Tamaro explains. “It was also on BOSTON PUBLIC, I believe.” With Tamaro are actors Bruce McGill, who plays Detective Vince Korsak, formerly Rizzoli’s partner, and […]Read On »

Network: ABC, airs on Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 25, 2012 The BIG BROTHER knock-off THE GLASS HOUSE continues to progress despite being shown just once a week (I thought originally the show was going to be on three times a week but maybe the lack of ratings changed the network’s decision) and already you can see where only airing once a week is a bit of an issue. Cramming a week’s worth of reality show into a single hour is a tough thing do, especially when the whole point of the game is to show how the […]Read On »

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Ned Vizzini & Nick Antosca Director Tim Andrew Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: June 25, 2012 It’s about time TEEN WOLF started revealing some things, and finally it does with “Venomous”, an appropriately titled episode since it reveals a snake (i.e. a new form of shapeshifter) hiding in our core group. After several episodes of teasing, “Venomous” finally offers up the big reveal about half-way through the episode, and while it’s not altogether surprising, I’m just relieved it’s a major […]Read On »

Host: Rich Eisen Network: TNT, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: June 24, 2012 Just when you think every reality show concept has been done to death, along comes something refreshing like THE GREAT ESCAPE, TNT’s uber-successful attempt to get in the reality game. With executive producer Ron Howard and Brian Grazer behind-the-scenes (alongside THE AMAZING RACE executive producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri), they’re off to a, well, great, start. Mixing in elements of THE AMAZING RACE and FEAR FACTOR, the series is pretty simple in concept, but elaborate and expansive in execution. Three teams of two are taken […]Read On »

Now, it could all be true and they are preparing viewers for what would be a larger, more intense fight against the aliens […]Read On »

Actress Cassidy Freeman has another hit series on her hands. The talented and beautiful young woman can currently be found on A&E’s top rated cable series LONGMIRE. In this series, Cassidy plays Walt Longmire’s (Robert Taylor) daughter Cady, who is a lawyer in a small town in Wyoming. Once the LONGMIRE pilot was shot, the actress had about a year in between that and the second episode to fill. During that time she did a guest star run on the popular CW show THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. ASSIGNMENT X chatted with Freeman about LONGMIRE, but also got the chance to see […]Read On »

By the end of “Progress,” which is billed not as the start of Season 2 but as a special episode, we are as or more bewildered than Ryan (Elijah Wood). This is saying something, considering that the poor guy […]Read On »

Car Manufacturer: Kia Model: 2012 KIA RIO 5-DOOR SX Suggested Retail Price: $20,745 Up until reviewing cars for ASSIGNMENT X, I never had the chance to drive or ride in a KIA, but the two latest cars (the RIO and the SOUL) we sampled from the impressive car maker prove to be quite cool and very fun rides. First up is the 2012 KIA RIO 5-DOOR SX and this is a nice  little car that features many of extras that make driving a KIA fun, plus it has a nice affordable price. This is a starter car in many ways […]Read On »

We already know – SPOILERS! – Thanos is on the way in the next THE AVENGERS movie, but what other famous foes from Avengers stories of the past deserve a shot at big screen stardom? After all, heroes are only as good as the villains they face. We list a few here, but they’re only suggestions; and no, Count Nefaria is not on this list. Complain all you like in the comments about that glaring omission or the lack of Baron Zemo, but remember that this is just one list for our villainous THE AVENGERS 2 and 3 films; you […]Read On »

When Allison’s (Salli […]Read On »
