If Tom Hiddleston’s acting work on its own were somehow not enough to make him rate highly, consider this. AMC’s limited series THE NIGHT MANAGER airs Tuesday nights at 10 PM. In this six-part espionage drama, based on the novel by John Le Carre, Hiddleston plays Jonathan Pine, who is recruited by British Intelligence to scope out amoral arms dealer Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie). Hiddleston shot to fame playing the villainous but witty Loki in the THOR and AVENGERS movies. He’s starred as a depressed vampire in ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, as an impoverished nobleman with a devastating secret in […]Read On »

In its second season, ABC’s Tuesday night MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER finds the title heroine, played by Hayley Atwell, relocating from 1940s New York to 1940s Los Angeles. Peggy Carter, a British special agent working for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (the precursor of S.H.I.E.L.D. – AGENT CARTER s in fact a spin-off of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD), spent the first season trying to clear billionaire inventor Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) of treason charges. It would be an understatement to say that Carter’s skills were underestimated because of her gender. In Season 1, she bonded with fellow agent Daniel Sousa, played by […]Read On »

In Season 2 of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, Clark Gregg’s character Phil Coulson has been having quite a time of it. Sure, former S.H.I.E.L.D. boss Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) did make Coulson the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. at the end of last season, but not before bringing Coulson back from the dead with alien DNA. This season, Coulson has had to cope with the alien DNA causing him to uncontrollably draw maps that turned out to lead to an alien-built city. One of his agents, protégé Skye (Chloe Bennet), turns out to have her […]Read On »

AGENT CARTER star Enver Gjokaj talks Season 1 – exclusive interview

On ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER, in a limited eight-episode run Tuesdays at 9 PM, the title character played by Hayley Atwell has few allies. As a woman working at the covert government agency SSR, or Strategic Scientific Resources in post-war 1946 New York, agent Peggy Carter is underestimated by most of her male colleagues, who have no idea that she spends her out-of-office hours saving the world. Carter has one co-worker solidly in her corner, wounded WWII veteran Daniel Sousa, played by Enver Gjokaj. Gjokaj (first name pronounced En-vair, second name rhymes with “no pie”) previously worked with two of […]Read On »

Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Marvel Studios

Stars: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Suggested Retail Price: $79.99 Distributor: Marvel Studios/Buena Vista Home Entertainment One of the most disappointing things Marvel has done in its bid for superhero dominance is the creation of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – an ABC TV series that should have been better than it actually was. Now it’s out on DVD and Blu-ray as THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON for the binge-viewers out there. And considering Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed THE AVENGERS, was at the helm and co-created the series with Jed […]Read On »

In MTV’s new Tuesday night drama FINDING CARTER, the Wilson family has undergone two huge jolts. One was twelve years ago, when then-three-year-old daughter Lyndon was kidnapped. The other is in the present, when Lyndon, who has reached the age of fifteen in the identity of Carter Stevens (Kathryn Prescott), is returned to her actual parents, sister and brother. Since Carter has grown up believing the woman who raised her was her real mother, it’s quite a shock to her – and having her back is a jolt to her biological kin as well. Alexis Denisof, who plays Carter/Lyndon’s father […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Mark Ruffalo talks THE NORMAL HEART

Larry Kramer’s play THE NORMAL HEART was first produced off-Broadway in 1985. In real life, Kramer is one of the founders of ACT UP, which describes itself as “a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis,” which was being largely ignored by the government in the Eighties. In NORMAL HEART, the main character Ned Weeks is Kramer’s fictional surrogate, a gay man who is enraged by the indifference he encounters as he tries to get help for his critically ill lover and friends in 1981. Kramer has now adapted […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Writer: Jeffrey Bell Director: Roxann Dawson Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: May 6, 2014 So the penultimate episode of the first season of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD was a last minute attempt to tie all the loose ends together before what ABC has promised to be an “explosive” season finale to the show. Obviously, this show has gone through a lot of changes and various plotlines during the course of a very tumultuous first season so an episode such […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Director:Vincent Misiano Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 22, 2014 Well, it certainly seems that MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD has a direction now in terms of the entire mythology of the show (or at least this season) but they are dragging their heels to the finish line as it was shown in “The Light in the Darkness.” Now as cool as it is to think that this would just lead to numerous awesome stories involving the characters we have grown to […]Read On »
