Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: David M. Barrett Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 22, 2011 At first it seems like the normal banter between Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author consultant Richard Castle (Nathan Filion) as they walk to the crime scene in the “Kill Shot” episode of CASTLE . Then Beckett lets it drop that she’s still in physical therapy as part of her recovery from the gun shot wound she got at the end of last season when a […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 1 – “Treachery”

Margarita Levieva and Emily VanCamp in REVENGE - Season 1 - "Treachery" | ©2011 ABC/Randy Holmes

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Ryan Scott Director: Bobby Roth Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 16, 2011 The “Treachery” episode of REVENGE makes you wonder if the writers haven’t written themselves into a corner, because it certainly looks like the wheels are coming off Emily’s big plot. The problem is, the show started at the end of the summer season with someone getting shot – and it sure looked like Emily was getting what she wanted and planned. So you have to figure the writers know where they’re going with the story and how […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “The Price of Gold”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: David H. Goodman Director: David Solomon Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: November 12, 2011 It’s always the innocuous stuff that goes past you on a show like ONCE UPON A TIME, but I suspect that even though the episode “The Price of Gold” is focusing on the parallel stories of Cinderella/Ashley Boyd (Jessy Schram) trying to keep her baby from Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle), the really significant question is whether Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan) is offering Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) the deputy position in defiance of Mayor Regina Mills (Lana Parilla) […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Heartbreak Hotel”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Davis Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 7, 2011 Aside from the flashback which begins “Heartbreak Hotel,” this is one of those episodes that go back to the fun and witty CASTLE that we all know and love. Not happy about the flashback – flashback storytelling is just a lame way to build excitement at the beginning of a show when it does not need it. Nor did this one even come close to playing trough. Blech. […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “Snow Falls”

Ginnifer Goodwin and Amos Stern in ONCE UPON A TIME - Season 1 - "Snow Falls" | ©2011 ABC/Chris Helcermanas-Benge

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Liz Tigelaar Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: November 6, 2011 The inherent problem with exposition is that it’s utterly necessary and yet it can lead to some pretty lackluster episodes. Take the “Snow Falls” episode of ONCE UPON A TIME. Presumably, it’s pretty significant how Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) met in their original fairy tale world, especially since Snow’s counterpart Mary Margarat accidentally wakes up Charming’s counterpart – the mysterious John Doe – who has been in a coma since, like, forever.

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 1 – “Charade”

Margarita Levieva in REVENGE - Season 1 - "Charade" | ©2011 ABC/Colleen Hayes

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Mark B. Perry and Joe Fazzio Director: Sanford Bookstaver Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 2, 2011 As I noted elsewhere recently, one of the problems with these endlessly mysterious kinds of shows like REVENGE, where for every question that gets answered, three more pop up, is that it can be a little hard to tell if the writers are just being mysterious or if they simply screwed up. And it’s really hard in the re-telling of this show not to sound cynical because it is so very, […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Cops and Robbers”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terence Paul Winter Director: Bryan Spicer Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 31, 2011 Those CASTLE fans looking for the usual light-hearted banter, witty repartee and twists and turns aren’t going to like this episode. Because this one is the other side of the series featuring crime fiction author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and his real-life muse Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) solving crimes together. The show has always featured some heavier, more dramatic episodes – it has to, it would […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “The Thing You Love Most”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis Director: Greg Beeman Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 30, 2011 Like the good disciples of LOST creator Damon Lindelof they are, writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are happily dropping little hints here and there about the fairy world and the supposed real world of Storybrook, Maine in the new ABC series ONCE UPON A TIME, but are raising just as many, if not more, questions. In tonight’s episode “The Thing You Love Most”, as Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Regina (Lana Parilla) go head to […]Read On »

Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie Director: Tim Hunter Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 First off, let me make a correction to last week’s episode, it turns out that when Lydia took that fall off her rooftop after fighting with the Grayson family bodyguard/hit man Frank (Max Martini), she survived. She’s in a coma, but alive. Whodathunk that? And Nolan (Gabriel Mann) does point out to Emily (Emily Van Camp) that it was kind of her fault. See, Emily had set it up so that it […]Read On »

Interview: Madeleine Stowe gets a taste of REVENGE

Madeleine Stowe in REVENGE - Season 1 - "Charade" | ©2011 ABC/Colleen Hayes

In ABC’s new hit series REVENGE, Wednesdays at 10 PM, Emily VanCamp plays Emily Thorne, who returns under an assumed identity to the upscale community in the Hamptons where she lived as a child. Emily’s goal is to get revenge (see the title) on the people who sent her beloved father to jail for life and ruined her younger years. There’s plenty of collateral damage, but Emily’s principal target is Madeleine Stowe’s character Victoria Grayson, who rules the enclave as its unofficially anointed queen. Stowe, a Los Angeles native, had audiences swooning as the heroine in LAST OF THE MOHICANS. […]Read On »
