Russell T. Davies, the man most directly responsible for the resurrection of the DOCTOR WHO franchise in 2005, was on hand at the Television Critic’s Association to promote his upcoming fourth season of TORCHWOOD, also a WHO connected show. And, of course, ASSIGNMENT X couldn’t resist asking his thoughts on the new DOCTOR WHO series post his exit. “Of course I love it! Stephen Moffat’s most important role is to get me a DVD before that Saturday of transmission,” says Davies. “This new season it’s going to go out on BBC America on the same day, but I still want […]Read On »COMMENTS (10)
CBS may not be aware of it, but the network’s onscreen nerds tend to flock together at parties. Witness Matthew Gray Gubler and Kristen Vangsness of CRIMINAL MINDS hanging out with Pauley Perrette of NCIS. Gubler plays his show’s resident genius, Dr. Spencer Reid, Vangsness is MINDS’ computer sorceress Penelope Garcia and Perrette is Goth techno-whiz Abby on NCIS. “Did you hear about the crossover with Pauley?” Gubler asks excitedly. “Our characters are best friends from school,” Vangsness adds. “Reid and Abby went to MIT together,” Gubler elaborates. Are NCIS and CRIMINAL MINDS combining forces? Is this a huge crossover […]Read On »COMMENTS (10)
Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke based on the U.K. series BEING HUMAN created by Toby Whithouse Director: Adam Kane Network: Syfy, airs Mondays Original Telecast: January 17, 2011 Syfy has taken a considerable risk in developing the popular U.K. genre series BEING HUMAN into an American off-shoot. It’s not that there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just that the U.K. series is still so fresh in our minds – and about to head into Season Three as we speak. Plus, it’s damn good.

It’s no surprise that V has struggled during its run to find its voice and remedy pacing issues. And the first two episodes of Season Two offered up promise, but still felt like the series was dealing with the wayward plotting ghosts of Season One.
However, “Laid Bare” has remedied many of those issues. A solid episode packed with action, revelations and some very cool effects, it’s one of the best episodes of the series to date and promises a major upheaval in the personal lives of all the characters.COMMENTS (1)
“Kozmo” is a shrewdly constructed episode of THE CAPE, almost as tightly woven as the title object, telling us a lot about several characters and the cape itself, while injecting a note of unexpected mysticism and presenting everybody with immediate threats and moral conundrums.COMMENTS (1)
Come on CHUCK fans, we all knew that there was no way Chuck (Zachary Levi) was going to be able propose to Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) without some complications.
Of course, that’s the pleasure of “Vs. The Balcony” a light and fun episode detailing some routine spy stuff in France accompanied by Chuck’s constantly foiled attempts to propose to Sarah.COMMENTS (0)
Exclusive Interview: ‘V’ executive producer Scott Rosenbaum prepares for the end of the world – Part 1
If Earth wasn’t in enough trouble in the first season of ABC’s reboot of the Eighties alien invasion series V, now there’s a power struggle among the Visitors, an alien/human baby, deadly red rain, homicidal reptile tails and new cast members to contend with. V show runner Scott Rosenbaum – with some additional thoughts from actor Joel Gretsch, who plays Father Jack Landry (stay tuned for our exclusive interview with the performer) – talks to us about how the war is going, the guest cast and why Gretsch wishes Rosenbaum could visit the set more often in the first part […]Read On »COMMENTS (0)
Wasting no time for its audience or its characters, “Tarot,” the second episode of THE CAPE gets into all kinds of mayhem in no time, as our hero Vince Faraday, aka the Cape (David Lyons), seems to get the drop on his arch-nemesis Chess (James Frain) – only to be felled by poison delivered by Cain, aka the Chef (Raza Jaffrey).COMMENTS (0)
It may be that I’m just lowering my standards, but in its third week, the fourth series of PRIMEVAL appears to be finding a better balance with its new characters and offering a bit more than just another monster runaround. Well, not much more, but if there is a reason to praise this episode it’s Alexander Siddig, who finally gets a chance to show why they made a good choice adding him to the cast. His suave villainy – not that he’s doing anything too villainous yet, but I’m expecting – in the first two episodes amounted to little more than a walk-on smirk, but this time around he helps to carry one of the two plot strands, and his DS9-trained acting chops are very welcome.COMMENTS (0)
While speaking at today’s Winter TCA session, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES actress Nina Dobrev hinted that Klaus will be seen on the show. “He’s coming at some point at the end of the season,” says Dobrev. “He hasn’t been cast yet, but he’s going to be a Big Bad Vampire.” Candice Accola, who also stars on DIARIES, also notes that werewolves will be playing a big part in the latter part of the season. “We’re introduced to more werewolf action,” says Accola. “We show the meeting of vampires and werewolves and how they will be part of each others lives. It’s […]Read On »COMMENTS (2)
