In NBC’s new Monday-night drama THE ENEMY WITHIN, Jennifer Carpenter plays former CIA Deputy Director Erica Shepherd. Erica was terrific at her job and one of the best code-breakers the Agency had ever seen. However, Erica was arrested, imprisoned and became the most notorious traitor in American history for giving the names of CIA operatives to a terrorist, resulting in the deaths of four agents. We learn quickly that this wasn’t because Erica wanted to betray her colleagues or her country, but rather because the terrorist threatened the life of Eric’s adolescent daughter Hannah (Sophia Gennusa). When the terrorist strikes […]Read On »

After eight years as the title character on ABC’s CASTLE, Nathan Fillion is back on that network in another eponymous role as THE ROOKIE. Fillion, also an executive producer, plays John Nolan in the Tuesday-night freshman series. THE ROOKIE is created by Alexi Hawley, who previously was an executive producer and show runner on CASTLE. Based on a real person who did this (but wishes to remain anonymous as he is still on the force), John Nolan is in his forties, struggling with an unfulfilling career and a failed marriage in Pennsylvania, when he is caught up as a hostage […]Read On »

In Season 2 of Fox’s MARVEL’S THE GIFTED on Tuesday nights, the factions of superpowered mutants and non-powered but armed humans have multiplied. In the series created by Matt Nix, set in the X-MEN universe, we still have the Mutant Underground, mutants who are trying to keep the peace, and Sentinel Services, the human government arm tasked with suppressing any mutant activity deemed suspicious. Now there’s also the militant mutant group the Inner Circle, which wants to dominate or entirely eradicate regular humans, the violently anti-mutant human cadre the Purifiers, and the literally underground mutant community of Morlocks. Stuck in […]Read On »

ABC’s first-season Tuesday-night drama THE ROOKIE is based on a real person. Like Nathan Fillion’s character, John Nolan, a man in his forties who’d already had a career came from a small town in the Eastern U.S. to join the Los Angeles Police Department. Who is the real person? “I can’t tell you that,” says THE ROOKIE creator/executive producer Alexi Hawley. “He’s on the job, and he has only been on the job for a few years, and he is very focused on being a successful police officer.” Giving the officer’s real name, Hawley explains, could jeopardize the man’s job, […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Briana Buckmaster, Brendan Taylor, Chris William Martin, Sarah Dugdale, Steven Yaffee, Troy Skog Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Amyn Kaderali Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: January 25, 2018 SUPERNATURAL likes to occasionally riff on particular horror movies. The Season 13 episode “Breakdown” is, more or less, SUPERNATURAL’s take on HOSTEL. Hang on, this is still The CW – the ickiness is intense in broadcast TV terms, but it still is broadcast TV. Instead of (as in HOSTEL) guests at an Eastern European cheap hotel being kidnapped and […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kim Rhodes, Kathryn Newton, Briana Buckmaster, Katherine Ramdeen, Clark Backo, Yadira Guevara-Prip Writers: Robert Berens & Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: January 18, 2018  SUPERNATURAL, for all its idiosyncratic rules and lore, at its essence is Sam and Dean Winchester, as played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. They are the backbone and basis of the show. This makes it very hard to do a spinoff of SUPERNATURAL, but it doesn’t stop people from trying. Back in Season 9 in 2014, […]Read On »

In CBS’s freshman Sunday night comedy/drama GOD FRIENDED ME, someone claiming to be the Almighty friends New York resident Miles Finer (Brandon Micheal Hall).

Morton has just come off six years in his Emmy-winning role on SCANDAL as […]Read On »

TV Review: DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 27 – Week 9 – Season Finale – Bobby Bones hams it all the way to first place

Stars: Evanna Lynch, Bobby Bones, Milo Manheim, Alexis Ren. Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: November 19th, 2018 I thought the biggest shocker of the DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 27 was the waaaaaay too early elimination of Juan Pablo Di Pace & Cheryl Burke. I was wrong. The biggest shocker is audience favorite and lowest scoring competitors Bobby Bones & Sharna Burgess winning!!! Huh? They like him, they really, really, REALLY like him. And so the show becomes more about popularity than talent more so than ever with Bones’ win. Yes, he is no where near the best dancer, […]Read On »
