POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Welcome back to another edition of the POP SHOW PODCAST starring Anthony C. Ferrante. This week we talk about a variety of interesting topics including budget aircraft and how award shows are all the same and boring while discussing the recent Golden Globes award show. We also look forward to the upcoming new season of TWIN PEAKS, how STAR WARS: REBELS is the best STAR WARS show that you are not watching and its connection to ROGUE ONE and a wrap-up of all the crazy gadgets that came out at this year’s 2017 CES trade show. This week Anthony (@acferrante) […]Read On »

DORKING OUT – Episode 29: The We Make the Golden Globes Good Edition

Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s podcast, we talk about Sunday night’s Golden Globe nominations. LA LA LAND won all the awards, but Meryl Streep won the night. We’re going to talk about our favorite and least favorite moments of the show, and share how the winners affect our Oscar picks, because we take our Oscar predictions VERY SERIOUSLY. Then Smith talks about the ridiculous exercise of giving awards to artistic achievements as though they were trophies at the end of a baseball season. You can’t score LA LA LAND or MANCHESTER BY THE SEA like box scores. He’s got some interesting […]Read On »

And finally, we try to get into a festive mood and share our favorite holiday movies. All of that, plus our favorite headlines of the week. We hope you enjoy our dorky podcast. You can listen to us here, or you can […]Read On »

Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Welcome to the first episode of the DORKING OUT SHOW! This is the new podcast starring Chris Smith and Sonia Mansfield where two dorks talk in-depth about all things in entertainment. We have a lot to unpack with this epic conclusion of the sixth season, so to help us out we bought in some super “Game Of Throne” dorks, including Harrison L. Smith and Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X. We talk about what we think about this explosive episode, plus some fun fan theories and what we think will happen in the final two seasons. In a world […]Read On »

TV Review: CONSTANTINE – Season 1 – “Non Est Asylum” – Series Premiere

Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine in CONSTANTINE | © 2014 Quantrell Colbert/NBC

Cast: Matt Ryan, Angelica Celaya, Charles Halford, Harold Perrineau, Michael James Shaw, Emmett J Scanlan Writer: David S. Goyer, Daniel Cerone Director: Neil Marshall Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 24, 2014 So CONSTANTINE’s premiere episode isn’t entitled “Pilot” for the reason that the Pilot episode is something completely different than what was delivered in “Non Est Asylum.” Hopefully, for the better. CONSTANTINE is based on the comic book HELLBLAZER (that also spawned a movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves) about John Constantine, a damned demon hunter and master of the occult that fights […]Read On »

Stars: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Shawn Ashmore, Annie Parisse, Billy Brown, Valorie Curry, Warren Kole Writers: Amanda Kate Shuman Director: Joshua Butler Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 11, 2013 This week’s episode of THE FOLLOWING was space filler while the pieces get set in place for whatever comes next on the show. Perhaps the biggest bit of information we received in “Welcome Home” was the reveal of Roderick (Warren Kole), a small town sheriff and right hand man to Joe Carroll (James Purefoy). While on the outside Roderick seems like a likeable […]Read On »

CD Review: MAGIC CITY soundtrack

When it comes to 60s retro music, few composers have shown an ability to conjure the decade’s diverse vibes like Italy’s Danielle Luppi. He’s rocked with HELL RIDE‘s biker guitars, dropped a martini in the hep jazz of THE WOMAN CHASER and cooed with the psychedelic eroticism of his country’s Shagadelia for the concept album “An Italian Story.” So it’s no surprise to see why Luppi’s been plunked in the middle of a late 50s crime-and-sex ridden Miami hotel for his biggest scoring shot yet in America with the Starz series MAGIC CITY. But what is a shock given the […]Read On »

TV Review: THE FOLLOWING – Season 1 – “The Fall”

Stars: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Shawn Ashmore, Jeananne Goossen, Billy Brown Writer: Shintaro Shimosawa Director: Marcos Siega Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: February 24, 2013 It’s been awhile since I’ve been thoroughly frustrated with a show that I actually kind of like. THE FOLLOWING has proven to be one of the more interesting and engrossing network shows in some time, yet for all the positives it has going for it (occasional clever writing, Kevin Bacon, a creepy villain), it matches that with character stupidity and plot contrivances that really push how much a viewer can take […]Read On »

TV Review: THE FOLLOWING – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Season Premiere

Former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) is brought in to track down Joe Carroll in THE FOLLOWING | (c) 2013 Fox

Stars: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Shawn Ashmore, Jeananne Goossen, Billy Brown Writers: Kevin Williamson Director: Marcos Siega Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 21, 2013 Having watched every episode of the excellent Fox series 24, I wasn’t sure how THE FOLLOWING might follow in its footsteps (if at all) or if it would be an altogether new series. Turns out from the initial “Pilot” episode, it will be a bit of both. First off, THE FOLLOWING appears it won’t be for the faint of heart. There were literally dead bodies everywhere in the […]Read On »

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz, Whoopi Goldberg, Kate Hudson Writer: Russel Friend & Garrett Lerner Director: Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: November 29, 2012 In a weird bit of scheduling, the latest episode of GLEE is called “Thanksgiving” and is airing a week after Thanksgiving. Huh? Couldn’t they have found a way to schedule the thing so it landed on Thanksgiving day? That said, “Thanksgiving” is actually another strong episode augmented by […]Read On »
