In A&E’s new drama THOSE WHO KILL, Mondays at 10 PM, James D’Arcy plays troubled (and sometimes troubling) forensic psychologist Dr. Thomas Schaeffer. Schaeffer hasn’t worked with the police for awhile, for reasons that are hinted at in the pilot, but he’s drawn back in when newly-promoted homicide detective Catherine Jensen (Chloe Sevigny) demands that he help her out with a serial killer case. THOSE WHO KILL is adapted by prolific writer/producer Glen Morgan from the Danish TV series DEN SOM DRAEBER, which was in turn adapted from a series of books by Elsebeth Egholm. THOSE WHO KILL is filmed […]Read On »

News: The scoop on the new BATES MOTEL TV series – TCA 2013

Freddie Highmore in BATES MOTEL - Season 1 | ©2012 A&E

When A&E announced they were going to do a PSYCHO prequel series called BATES MOTEL, it was questionable whether such an iconic character could be reinvented once again (anyone remember the 1998 Gus Van Sant shot-for-shot remake?) However, with the great new previews and an excellent pilot episode, the Carlton Cuse (LOST) executive produced series is as epic and cinematic as you can get with Vera Farmiga playing the domineering Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore playing her jittery high school son Norman. At today’s Winter 2013 Cable TCA’s, Cuse revealed more details about BATES MOTEL and what to expect. Most […]Read On »

Lauren Ambrose in COMA | ©2012 A&E

Stars: Lauren Ambrose, Steven Pasquale, Joe Morton, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis Writer: John J. McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Original Telecast: August 5, 2012 Network: A&E If the first night of the two-part, four-hour COMA miniseries wasn’t enough torture, A&E delivers a second half that’s more excruciating as the first. Why, oh, why did this suck so bad? Here’s an example of how COMA fails miserably: whenever something interesting or suspenseful happens, suddenly the characters start looking at charts and talking ominous about what’s on the page. Or in other […]Read On »

Stars: Lauren Ambrose, Steven Pasquale, Joe Morton, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis Writer: John J. McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Network: A&E Original Telecast: August 3, 2012 When you name your mini-series COMA, you better deliver a suspenseful, taut thriller, otherwise, puns from journalists reviewing it will be aplenty. So yes, here’s one coming now – COMA puts you to sleep. Yes, the first two hours of this mini-series airing on A&E is a complete bore. The script is sluggish, the scenarios ridiculous and the pay-off (which finally happens during the […]Read On »

In the first-season finale of LONGMIRE, tonight on A&E at 10 PM, matters reach a boiling point between Absaroka County, Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) and Deputy Branch Connally (Bailey Chase) over personal and professional matters.

Bailey Chase in LONGMIRE - Season 1 - "8 Seconds" | ©2012 A&E

LONGMIRE is A&E’s new contemporary Western procedural based on the mystery novels by Craig Johnson, airing Sundays at 10 PM.

Bailey Chase plays Deputy Branch Connally, who hankers after both the boss’ job and the boss’ daughter Cady (Cassidy Freeman).

Connolly, Series created by Hunt Baldwin & John Coveny, Based on the novels by Craig Johnson Director: J. Michael Muro   Network: A&E, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 22, 2012 “An Incredibly Beautiful Thing” is yet another episode of LONGMIRE where you really don’t have a specific idea of where the story is going to go.

This series never ceases to impress with the levels of intrigue for each week’s mystery, and even though I figured this one out – it was only a couple of minutes ahead of the big reveal. So many elements of this […]Read On »
