Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Julie Plec & Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Rob Hardy    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2010 I am consistently pleased with the way that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is re-writing its own rules and making all kinds of changes in practically every episode. It seems like every single week the cliff-hanger this season is something completely unexpected and I love that about this show! “Smells like Teen Spirit” is no exception to the way the show is bending and twisting this season to […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October13, 2010 “The Reckoning” definitely delivers on a LOT of levels as the new season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES continues. It’s Senior Prank Night and despite the fact that their entire world has been flipped on its ear in the last year or so, Caroline (Candice Accola) is determined that Elena (Nina Dobrev), Bonnie (Katerina Graham), and Tyler (Michael Trevino) are going to have a normal night of fun. Of course, no […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Wendy Stanzler    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 6, 2010 Why is THE VAMPIRE DIARIES like crack? I have no idea. I can’t get enough of this show. When I started watching it, I had finally decided to give it a shot, and I wasn’t all that hot to trot for it, but then after maybe two episodes I was hooked and was completely sucked in to all of the drama and multiple layered plots of the characters […]Read On »

In the CW’s new series RINGER, which airs Tuesdays at 9 PM, Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as twin sisters Bridget Cafferty and Siobhan Martin.

Bridget flees to Siobhan’s side in the Hamptons, but it turns out that Siobhan is mixed up in something pretty bad, too. Siobhan fakes suicide, and the terrified Bridget winds up impersonating her identical sibling – and then finds out someone […]Read On »

Stars: Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, Jamie Brewer Writers: Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, series created by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk Director: Ryan Murphy Network: FX, Wednesdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: October 5, 2011 It’s difficult to do serialized straight-up horror on a weekly television series, which is probably why almost no one ever tries it. Before anyone cites, for example, THE X-FILES and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, let us remember that the former had as one of its mottos “I Want to Believe” and “Trust No […]Read On »

In NBC’s Wed. 8:30 PM half-hour comedy FREE AGENTS, adapted from a British series of the same name (which airs Saturdays on BBC America), Hank Azaria plays Alex, who is absolutely miserable about his divorce. His friend Helen, played by Kathryn Hahn, is still reeling from the death of her fiancé. Alex and Helen wind up sleeping together, which Alex thinks might be a good first step, but Helen considers it disastrous, particularly because they both work together at a corporate PR firm. Todd Holland, a producer/director who famously shepherded MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE, serves as the directing executive producer […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 29, 2010 Once again, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES delivers with another fine episode. “The End of the Affair” is packed with lavish 1920’s flashbacks, and all kinds of cerebral goodies to chew on in the present. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) hit Chicago in an effort to find out why Klaus can’t properly create his hybrid army. Of course Stefan knows the real reason, simply that Elena (Nina Dobrev) […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “The Hybrid”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Joshua Butler, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Al Septien Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2010 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES never fails to please in terms of cliffhanger endings and surprises rolling in that are rarely suspected or even hinted at. Last week’s cliffhanger saw Caroline (Candice Accola) gunned down by Carol Lockwood (Susan Walters) with a Vervain tranquilizer, that was a brilliant ending but I think the new episode “The Hybrid” has an even better one (SPOILER ALERT) bringing back Caroline’s father played by Jack […]Read On »

Stars: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kristoffer Polaha, Ioan Gruffudd, Nestor Carbonell, Mike Colter, Tara Summers, Zoey Deutch Writers: Eric Charmelo, Nicole Snyder Director: Rob Bailey Network: The CW, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 20, 2011 Here’s the problem with RINGER, the new CW soap opera/thriller starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as twin sisters who invade each other’s lives. A) It’s not very good. B) As much as it’s commendable that Gellar wants to do something that’s not BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, picking a project where she’s not allowed to kick-ass and take names is incredibly hard to get used to. She […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2010 YAY! The wait is finally over and one of my favorite guilty pleasures is back! THE VAMPIRE DIARIES left us in a bit of a lurch last season with Stefan (Paul Wesley) taking off to join Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he plots for the next phase in his supernatural vendetta. Poor Elena (Nina Dobrev) was left with only Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to make the pain go […]Read On »
