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 »

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

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 »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Rob Hanning Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 24, 2011 “Demons” is a marvelously made episode of CASTLE and I absolutely hated it. Okay, the truth comes out, I am a world-class weenie and creepy stuff just plain freaks me. Do. Not. Like. It. However, it’s CASTLE, and even if I don’t like scary stuff, the episode was nonetheless outstanding. When the star of a ghost hunting TV show gets murdered in the house he’s investigating, it looks more […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge Writer: Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis Director: Mark Mylod Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 23, 2011 Once upon a time, back in 1987, ABC put on a situation comedy called THE CHARMINGS  in which the Evil Queen (Judy Parfitt), in a fit of rage that Snow White had survived after all, cast a spell so powerful, it sent Snow, Prince Eric (Christopher Rich) and their two boys, the Queen and a Dwarf, to modern suburbia.  Their confusion with their fairy tale beginnings and real life made for much merriment, but not enough […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 1 – “Guilt”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Nikki Toscano Director: Kenneth Fink Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 19, 2011 One of the problems I’ve had with REVENGE  is that it does stretch credibility that Emily Thorne (the former Amanda Clarke) seems to think that she is going to ruin the lives of all the people involved in the false accusation and conviction of her father David (James Tupper) without getting caught. But tonight, Emily (Emily Van Camp) does come close and it’s just clever enough that I’m almost willing to forgive that the episode […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 17, 2011 Looks like we’ve got some thawing on the part of Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) – who is ostensibly not in love with author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who works with her to solve crimes. Like heck, she isn’t, and it comes out when Castle gets tangled up with a really hot insurance investigator who horns her way into their latest case. In this one, a museum director […]Read On »

Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Wendy Calhoun Director: Matt Shakman Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 12, 2011 Ah, the sweet havoc goes on as Emily Thorne (formerly Amanda Clarke) goes on her revenge-ridden spree to ruin the lives of everyone who was involved in the false accusation of her father David (James Tupper) during one summer in The Hamptons. Hence the plot of the new ABC series REVENGE. Thorne’s principal targets are Victoria and Conrad Grayson (Madeleine Stowe and Henry Czerny), and in tonight’s episode “Duplicity”, Emily sideswipes Victoria as she […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Kick the Ballistics”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerold Writer: Moira Kirland Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 10, 2011 With “Kick the Ballistics”, CASTLE is really on. And it was on in this episode with a hey-nonny. When the body of a young woman, killed execution style, is found on a construction site, it seems more than a little odd that a college kid making extra bucks by tutoring should find herself the target of a mob hit. But the real shocker is when the ballistics come back […]Read On »
