TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “Silence of the Clamps”

FUTURAMA - Season 6B - "Silence of the Clamps" | Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Voices: Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Eric Rogers Director: Frank Marino Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 Now that was pretty bad. FUTURAMA has been very good this year – particularly last week’s “Law & Oracle” episode, but this week, the show sunk to a surprising low. “Silence of the Clamps” is a complete mess, repeating many themes and story strands from the earlier part of the season and barely providing any actual jokes in the process. When Planet Express has to deliver a package (robot clamps) to a …Read On »


TV Review: LOVE BITES – “Boys to Men”

Stars: Becki Newton, Greg Grunberg, Constance Zimmer Writer: Danielle Sanchez-witzel & Joe Lawson Director: Jamie Babbit Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 I’ve given up on trying to figure out what the hell is going on with LOVE BITES. One week it’s horrendously bad, the next week it’s quite good. The tone has varied, the stories are all of the place, yet, some times it gets everything right. This week, with “Boys to Men”, the series almost feels like the writers have finally broken completely out of their shells and found clever ways of truly connecting …Read On »



RED FACTION: ARMAGEDDON soundtrack | ©2011 Red Faction

Of all the alt. tech composers who are giving sonic flesh to the ghosts in their machines, Brian Reitzell is certainly one of the most intriguing. Shaping guitars to the dusty football plains of Texas in FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS or mutating their chords into the terrifying mayhem of 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, Reitzell has also heard the existential funk of STRANGER THAN FICTION before finding fairy tale eeriness in the MTV generation reboot of RED RIDING HOOD. If Reitzell’s interests have often pushed the boundaries between sound design and music, they now reach surreal meltdown with the videogame soundtrack to …Read On »

Rowling Director: David Yates Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: July 15, 2011 You can tell Warner Bros. feels they have something special on their hands with HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 from the very beginning.

The Dork Side: Shut up about the Netflix price hike, you whiny crybabies

Netflix logo | ©Netflix

I can’t believe all these people are complaining about the Netflix price hike. Seriously? You’re losing your damn minds about $6. $6?! Meanwhile, the Republicans are stripping all of us of our health care. Try going to a Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire. Oh wait, you can’t. There still isn’t equal rights in this country for the gays, but yeah, this Netflix thing is a big deal – let’s all freak out. Come on, people, you can’t get everything for free. You get Google for free. You get Facebook for free. You get Twitter for free. You get YouTube for …Read On »


Composer Interview: MICHAEL ANDREWS likes to score with the BAD TEACHER

Composer Michael Andrews | © 2011 Michael Andrews

BAD TEACHER | ©2011 Sony Pictures There’s nothing wrong with the wacka-wacka style of pizzicato comedy scoring to hit all of the talking animal orchestral shenanigans for the younger set. And though comedies for older folks might share many of those PG movies’ fondness for bathroom jokes, cute string hits just don’t cut it for potty-mouthed R-rated characters whose best idea for a bodily function is getting it on. And they do the nasty with guitar chords, funk rhythms and saucy pop-jazz, vibes that stand for much of the approach when it comes to scoring contemporary teen-adult comedies. However, when …Read On »

Stars: Skyler Samuels, Amy Peitz, Grey Damon, Grace Phipps, Benjamin Stone, Alyssa Diaz, Ki Hong Lee Writer: Ron McGee based on the novels by Liz Braswell Director: Norman Buckley Network: ABC Family, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: July 12, 2011 It can be said that a lot of the ABC Family genre style shows have the same feel and texture to them. They have young casts and deal with all manner of problems from family drama to growing up to friend drama to those dreaded parental sex talks. Of course, all of that is taking place against a backdrop of …Read On »


AMERICA’S GOT TALENT Recap: First Hollywood Quarter-Finals eliminations

No surprises tonight on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s top four picks to move onto the semi-finals. The eight acts left behind didn’t cut it and sadly, were the right choices to send home. Of the four acts picked only one was picked by the judges, the other three were voted for by the people at home the previous night. First to stay was Snap Boogie, the hip-hop break dancer with tons of charisma and a ginormous amount of talent. Eliminated were Duo Aero, the acrobatic act and The Fearless Flores Family, the motorcycle stunt family that had no where else to …Read On »

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES might be on Summer hiatus on The CW, but here at ASSIGNMENT X, we’ve been thinking a lot about what should happen next season. This show has had lots of twist and turns and ins and outs during the second season, even more than the first, so it’s to be expected that there will be some shake-ups for the new year. Here’s a list of things we’d like to see happen on the popular romance/supernatural genre show, check ‘em out and see if you agree with what we think should happen, or feel free to chime in …Read On »


CD Review: THE X-FILES: VOLUME ONE soundtrack (3,000 limited edition)

THE X-FILES: VOLUME ONE Soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

The term “whistling in the dark” took on a whole new meaning when Mark Snow’s cheerfully sinister main title theme first announced agents Mulder and Scully on the Fox channel in 1993. With its telltale vocalizations abetted by undulating, eerie percussion, Snow’s Emmy-nominated main title joined STAR TREK, LOST IN SPACE and THE BRADY BUNCH as one of the most instantly identifiable themes in television history. As the FILES’ premise upped the supernatural disbeliever premise of THE NIGHT STALKER (not to mention PROJECT U.F.O) by several, terrifying notches, Snow’s doom-ridden atmospheres was essential to making us believe over the course …Read On »
