Stars:  Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn Writer: Thomas Schnauz Director: Thomas Schnauz Network: AMC, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: August 26, 2012 “Say My Name” is a pivotal and gut-wrenching episode of BREAKING BAD, and one that answers many of the questions that have been building since the season began.  Questions such as: Is Walt really capable of becoming “Jesse James?” In Mike’s (Jonathan Bank’s) memorable turn of phrase, just because Walt shot Jesse James doesn’t make him Jesse James.  But the opening sequence of “Say My Name” says otherwise.  Walt, Jesse, (Aaron Paul) and Mike meet the crime […]Read On »

Stars: Tom Weston-Jones, Kevin Ryan, Ato Essandoh, Anastasia Griffiths, Tanya Fischer, Kiara Glasco, Franka Potente Writer:  Tom Fontana & Will Rokos   Director: Jeff Woolnough     Network: BBC America, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: August 26, 2012 COPPER has a really nice pacing to the storytelling of this series. I like that mysteries carry over from week to week, but they get wrapped up just the same within a reasonable time period. “Husbands and Fathers” is an appropriate title for this new episode, even if a lot of the connotation of the title is creepy … just plain creepy. Annie (Kiara Glasco) […]Read On »

Greenberg    Director: Constantine Makris Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: Aug 13, 2012 I have such conflicting emotions where WAREHOUSE 13 is concerned. I like the series for the most part, and now that we’re in the fourth season there is a style and rhythm all it’s own for this show. (and now you hear the ‘but’ coming) However, I’m just not sure what this series is trying to be. When it started out […]Read On »
