Except that the current special, SHERLOCK: THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE, airing on PBS Friday, January 1, is set in the Victorian era. First at a question-and-answer session set …Read On »

GRACE AND FRANKIE: Co-creator Marta Kauffman on her Netflix comedy – Interview

GRACE AND FRANKIE Key Art | ©2015 Netflix

In Netflix’s GRACE AND FRANKIE, now streaming its full thirteen-episode first season and preparing for its second, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as the title characters. Grace is very uptight and Frankie is very free-spirited. The two have baffled and tolerated each other for decades because their husbands, Grace’s Robert (Martin Sheen) and Frankie’s Sol (Sam Waterston), are law partners. It would be an understatement to say that Grace and Frankie – and their grown children – are thrown for a loop when Robert and Sol announce that they’ve been in love with each other for twenty years and …Read On »

Based on a series of best-selling novels by James S.A. Corey, Syfy’s new series THE EXPANSE, Tuesdays at 10 PM, is set two hundred years from now. Humanity’s technical prowess has grown enough for people to spread throughout the solar system. Alas, humanity’s emotional and psychological flaws remain much as they are now, which means interplanetary war may break out. Cas Anvar plays spacecraft pilot Alex Kamal. The prolific actor, originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, also starred in Syfy’s series OLYMPUS earlier this year, and has three feature films out in 2015 alone: the award-winning ROOM, the exorcism thriller THE VATICAN …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 9, 2015 The Season 11 SUPERNATURAL episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” is a little like one of those inquiries where each response is met with another “Why?” The title refers specifically to Amara’s (Emily Swallow), aka Darkness, quest to find her brother – that is, God – but by the end, we’ve got plenty of questions of our own. Is Amara’s …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Just My Imagination”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Nate Torrence, Carrie Genzel, Dylan Kingwell, Dylan Everett, Anja Savcic Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Richard Speight, Jr. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 2, 2015 SUPERNATURAL normally doesn’t do heartwarming (it’s much more inclined toward heart-ripping, in the literal sense). However, in the Season 11 episode “Just My Imagination,” the show goes surprisingly warm and fuzzy, with charming results. We see a little girl having a tea party in her well-appointed room. The child, but not her parents, can see her companion Sparkle, a unicorn man …Read On »

SHERLOCK, the present-day adaptation by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Victorian-era character, is doing something very different for New Year’s. On Friday, January 1, PBS will present SHERLOCK: THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE, which sees Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Watson actually existing and solving a case in the late nineteenth century. It is, as the English are wont to say, a one-off. Sue Vertue, SHERLOCK’s series producer (who is also married to Moffat), has previously produced/executive produced other British series, including THE CUP, SUPERNOVA, CARRIE & BARRY and COUPLING. However, she says there is something …Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks, David Morse, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson Writer: Peter Landesman, based on the GQ Magazine article “Brain Game” by Jeanne Marie Laskas Director: Peter Landesman Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: December 25, 2015 There were some rumors circulating that the National Football League had persuaded Sony Pictures to tone down the criticism of the NFL in CONCUSSION. If this is true, the imagination staggers at what the film was like earlier, because what’s onscreen here is pretty damning. Based on a true story, CONCUSSION begins in 2002 Philadelphia, where onetime …Read On »

Russell, story by Annie Mumolo and David O. Russell Director: David O. Russell Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: December 25, 2015 JOY is, in broad strokes, the story of Joy Mangano, though how closely this hews to actual history is an open question so far as onscreen crawls go. On its own terms, JOY works, and if it never exactly produces the title sentiment, it’s still a satisfying experience. JOY …Read On »
