Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Amann Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 24, 2012 Think of “After the Storm” as the part two of last season’s CASTLE finale “Always,” which you may recall I was decidedly miffed about. And still am.  Yet, despite teases from the network, it does look like we finally have a couple working out their relationship rather than the whole will they/won’t they routine. And this is one jam-packed episode. I speculated last spring that the planned hit on Det. […]Read On »

For someone who has problems like this, it’s a good idea to have a friend around who can help with day to day life, not to mention psychiatric/medical emergencies. That’s where Arjay Smith’s character Max Lewicki comes in; as Daniel’s sometime student and full-time friend and caregiver, Max is there to make sure that Daniel’s world […]Read On »

Over the years, we’ve seen Dexter get married, father a son, have his wife murdered by another serial killer (John Lithgow, who won a Supporting Actor Emmy […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Mary Lynn Rajskub on the end of 24 and HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN

HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN has not been one of CBS’ sitcom success stories. The half-hour comedy, starring David Hornsby as ultra-polite Andrew and Kevin Dillon as Andrew’s former high school tormentor-turned quasi-life coach, ends its nine-episode run this Saturday night. However, Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Andrew’s ultra-assertive sister Janet, is unlikely to be slowed down by GENTLEMAN’s gentle exit. The actress can currently be seen on the big screen as an acerbic newspaper editor in SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED and stars in two Web series. One is DIRTY WORK, about a crime scene cleanup crew; the other is DICKI, […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Tim Kring on the DAYBREAK web series

DAYBREAK poster | ©2012 AT&T

DAYBREAK begins with a wild vehicle chase – not too surprising, as it’s directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar – then flashes back to show us how Ben (Ryan Eggold), living in a mobile home park after turning his back on conventional success, gets entangled in a web that involves his late father, a twelve-sided dodecahedron and a secret society. The far-reaching themes are a hallmark of DAYBREAK’s co-creator/executive producer Tim Kring (TOUCH, HEROES). What is most unusual about DAYBREAK, with its high production values and pedigree on both sides of the camera – besides Eggold (ENTOURAGE, 90210), stars include […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Ryan McPartlin on DAYBREAK, the end of CHUCK and CSI: MIAMI

Captain Awesome is back – and a badass. Ryan McPartlin, who endeared himself to five seasons of CHUCK viewers as the title character’s brother-in-law Devon, aka Captain Awesome, has a new gig. However, neither the role itself nor the venue for the show is typical. DAYBREAK, produced by Tim Kring of HEROES and TOUCH and directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar, looks exactly like a pilot episode of an action mystery TV series, but instead of airing on network or cable television, it is running – one ten-minute episode every Thursday night at Daybreak2012.com. The Web series is sponsored by […]Read On »
