Cast: Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Robbie Kay, Kiki Sukezane, Gatlin Green, Henry Zebrowski, Toru Uchikado, Judith Shekoni, Danika Yarosh Writers: Tim Kring, Greg Beeman Director: Matt Shakman Network: Airs on NBC, Thursdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 24, 2015 Here’s a quick recap of the first incarnation of HEROES. The first season started out really good with a solid message (“Save the cheerleader, save the world”), interesting characters, a slick comic book come to life appeal and plotlines that while at times bogged down, at least furthered the narrative.

Cast: Meagan Good, Stark Sands, Nick Zano, Laura Regan, Wilmer Valderrama Writer: Max Borenstein Director: Mark Mylod Network: Airs on Fox @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2015 MINORITY REPORT is an interesting show at least from the “Pilot” episode. There is a lot going on here beyond just carrying over from where the movie left off. In the television show, the events of the movie are not necessarily taken as gospel but they have an influence on where this show begins. The precog program has been abolished after abuse of the system resulted in some problematic issues with […]Read On »

After the first episode of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD debuted to a cable record ratings, it is probably safe to say AMC has another hit on its hands despite some viewers’ opinions that it was too slow or there was not enough zombie carnage. While the first season is only six episodes (the same as the original series’ first season), there is still much that can happen to capture an audience. The cast and crew of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD believes so too and they gave AssignmentX five things to expect to see on the show during Season 1. 1) […]Read On »

On Fox’s WAYWARD PINES, Thursdays at 9 PM, we’re in a small town that contains an epic, one might even say world-changing, secret. Based on a trilogy of books by Blake Crouch, WAYWARD PINES doesn’t try to keep us guessing for the whole of its ten-episode miniseries run. Instead, adaptor/executive producer/show runner Chad Hodge provides the big reveal at the halfway mark and seems to be spending the rest of the show investigating the many, many ramifications. Hodge, who created the series THE PLAYBOY CLUB and worked on RUNAWAY and TRU CALLING, also is working on a biographical film about […]Read On »

Original telecast: Feb. 17, 2015 The penultimate episode of the first season of MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER was extremely good in wrapping up all the storylines going on the show in preparation for what should be a very good finale.

Obviously, maybe he’ll reappear in future episodes and this […]Read On »
