In the opening narration for CBS’s series INSTINCT, Alan Cumming’s character Dylan Reinhart playfully informs us that he was Agent Reinhart when he worked for the CIA, Professor Reinhart when he started teaching at a university, as well as becoming a best-selling author, and now that he’s helping NYPD homicide detective Lizzie Needham (Boyana Novakovic) solve cases, he’s Consultant Reinhart. In Dylan’s personal life, he’s married to restaurant owner Andy (Daniel Ings), who worries about the return to crime-solving; Lizzie is still mourning the line-of-duty death of her partner. No matter his title, Dylan is clearly on to something: INSTINCT […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, Sarah Troyer, Jonathan Cherry, Eric Schweig Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Nina Lopez-Corrado Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 16, 2017 The title of the SUPERNATURAL Season 13’s sixth episode “Tombstone” does refer to the traditional graveyard marker, but it also recalls not just the legendary Old West town, but the movie made about it (with Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday). No, nobody time-travels there, or even visits a modern incarnation. Instead, it’s a weird reflection of […]Read On »

ABC’s new Wednesday-night light procedural series TAKE TWO is created by Andrew W. Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller. Marlowe wrote the screenplays for AIR FORCE ONE, END OF DAYS, and HOLLOW MAN. Most significantly in terms of TAKE TWO, Marlowe created the long-running ABC series CASTLE, on which Miller was a fellow writer/executive producer (Marlowe and Miller have been married to one another since 1997). Like CASTLE, TAKE TWO pairs someone from the storytelling world with someone from the detecting world. In the case of TAKE TWO, actress Sam Swift, played by Rachel Bilson, comes out of rehab after starring […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 13 – “Advanced Thanatology”

Jared Padelecki as Sam in SUPERNATURAL | © 2018 Katie Yu/The CW

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Lisa Berry, Seth Isaac Johnson, Alisen Down Writer: Steve Yockey, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 9, 2017 A big part of the charm of SUPERNATURAL is the craziness of its storytelling, which has just gotten loopier over the years. By Season 13, it revels in its own insanity. There may never have been a show where the ostensibly mortal lead characters keep dying and coming back, with the explanations for how and why this happens growing ever more complex. […]Read On »

ABC’s new series DECEPTION, which premieres Sunday, March 11, deals with the intersection of stage magic, a la David Blaine, and crime solving. When headliner magician Cameron Black, played by Jack Cutmore-Scott, is entangled in a murder, his efforts to clear his name cause him to team up with FBI agent Kay Daniels (Ilfenesh Hadera), which helps her sleuthing as well. Creator/executive producer Chris Fedak (who co-created CHUCK) explains DECEPTION’s premise during a Q&A session. “The idea behind this show is “tricking,” essentially. So many action shows, you have, “How do you capture bad guys?” Sometimes you get them doing […]Read On »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 2/6

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS | © 2018 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS Sequels either go a few ways, either it’s a sh**show, something that is decent but doesn’t measure up to the original, in rare cases, tops the original. A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS falls in the middle here as there are indeed some funny moments but begins to take itself surprisingly way too serious toward the end. As with the original, the content is for adults only and there are plenty of moments that question the boundaries of good taste but that’s what we expect […]Read On »

Castiel (Misha Collins) is wandering around this, well, big empty space, trying to find somebody, and eventually wakes up the Entity running the joint. The Entity […]Read On »
