Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa Director: Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: November 1, 2011 Up and down – that’s what GLEE is all about these days and this is the “up” week dubbed “The First Time.” The reason it’s up – some fine direction and solid writing elevates the show, even with a few missteps along the way. The episode’s theme is, no surprise, “The First …Read On »


TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Heartbreak Hotel”

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: November 7, 2011 Aside from the flashback which begins “Heartbreak Hotel,” this is one of those episodes that go back to the fun and witty CASTLE that we all know and love. Not happy about the flashback – flashback storytelling is just a lame way to build excitement at the beginning of a show when it does not need it. Nor did this one even come close to playing trough. Blech. …Read On »


TV Review: BONES – Season 7 premiere – “The Memories in the Shallow Grave”

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Michael Grant Terry Writer: Stephen Nathan Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: November 3, 2011 Season 7 has a nice sturdy ring to it. Relatively few TV shows last this long. BONES enters this hallowed territory with the charm of its banter and character dynamics very much intact. The mystery of the week winds up feeling more peripheral than usual, but that’s not why most viewers tune in to BONES in the first place. Pleasingly little has changed in the dynamics between …Read On »

GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK movie poster | ©American Cinema Releasing

While many people are excited by the new product on display at 2011’s American Film Market, sometimes it’s classic titles making a comeback that gain considerable buzz. Case in point Gorilla Pictures which recently made a deal to get three classic Chuck Norris films back into distribution after languishing in the vaults for many years. GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK, THE OCTAGON and A FORCE OF ONE are the early 1980s classics that put Norris on the map, and Gorilla has made a five-picture Action Pack (including FORCE: FIVE and ACAPULCO GOLD – two additional films not starring Norris) that they’ve …Read On »

Hall) simply going through his own journey of faith parallel to the depredations of religious fanatic Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) without actually intersecting with it on …Read On »


TV Review: DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 13 – Week 8 – “Instant Jive Night”

Stars: Nancy Grace, Robert Kardashian, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez, Hope Solo Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: November 7th, 2011 It’s Instant Jive night on DANCING WITH THE STARS and all the couples had two dances to learn. In record speed – 20 minutes as co-host Brooke Burke Charvet kept repeating – the dynamic duos had to put the moves they’ve practiced all week together with music they just heard, just like last season’s Instant Cha Cha Cha. The results – mixed. Some, like middle-of-the-packers Hope Sole & Maks Chmerkovskiy rose to the challenge. Others, like front runners Ricki …Read On »


TV Review: TERRA NOVA – Season 1 – “Nightfall”

Cast: Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Byron Brockmann, Shelly Conn, Stephan Lang, Simone Kessell, Landon Liborion, Allison Miller Director: Jon Cassar Writers: Terry Matalas, Travis Fickett Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8pm Original Telecast: Nov. 7, 201 “Nightfall” was a vast improvement over the episodes we have seen so far on TERRA NOVA. Instead of some lame disease, or a runaway, or murder because of a gambling debt of all things, we got a genuine conflict between the Sixers and the colony as well as a definite look at how deadly the land they live in can be. Something that …Read On »

Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it helps when your name is Brian De Palma – that is Brian J. De Palma. The independent filmmaker was at the American Film Market 2011 pre-selling his film ESCAPING THE RUSH and says that having a similar name to CARRIE director Brian De Palma hasn’t totally hurt him over the years. “It sometimes gets people on the phone or they think it’s him joking around,” says De Palma. “I don’t know if it hurts or helps at all – it’s just a talking point sometimes.” Ten minutes of ESCAPING THE RUSH is complete and it …Read On »

It does not come until the end of this utterly dreary episode, but it is a glimmer of hope. Until then, Morgan is not handling the download of the Intersect very …Read On »
