Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 24, 2012 Well things have certainly come to a grinding halt on REVOLUTION after a very impressive “Pilot” episode where it was wall to wall action and a whole handful of good ideas. “Chained Heat” isn’t nearly as good as the opening episode which seems to sometimes be the case with big opening episodes that are targeted to grab the viewers’ attention and then subsequently falter to deliver in the following […]Read On »

As a writer and actress on the long-running THE OFFICE, she was great in short spurts as the self-absorbed Kelly Kapoor. Now that’s she’s branched off and created a new series for herself with THE MINDY PROJECT, it’s clear Kaling is sometimes better in those small spurts. I know there are many people who absolutely love this […]Read On »

REVOLUTION is the interesting idea from Erik Kripe (SUPERNATURAL), JJ Abrams (LOST, ALIAS) and Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) about […]Read On »

Stars: Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin Writer:  Ryan Murphy & Allison Adler  Director: Ryan Murphy      Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 11, 2012 I do like THE NEW NORMAL in spite of myself. I can’t help it. The one-liners are fast and funny, and even though this series does nothing but perpetuate stereotypes to middle America, I still find a lot of it funny — and I hate sitcoms. In my last review I bitched long and loud about the various forms of stereotypes that this show reinforces, and with the […]Read On »

With three dads wearing babies as a fashion accessory, it just appeared like it would be a one-joke show that would be unbearable and quickly fade away. However, there’s a great comedic  pedigree behind the show. The series was created by Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Grandy and Amy […]Read On »
