TV Review: TRUE BLOOD – Season 5 – “Whatever I Am, You Made Me”

Just in case we weren’t aware of the keen contributions normally made to TRUE BLOOD by Rutina Wesley’s blunt-spoken Tara and Kristin Bauer van Straten’s brilliantly acerbic Pam, the episode “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” drives the point home by muffling both characters. Make no mistake, Tara and Pam are both front and center here, it’s just that they’re both in dead serious mode. Newly-vamped Tara, having fled from her cousin Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Sookie (Anna Paquin), almost kills a helpless woman changing a tire. Tara gets some self-control and takes shelter with old boss/boyfriend/shapeshifter Sam (Sam Trammell). […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Lara Pulver Talks the New Season of SHERLOCK

The literary figure Irene Adler lives up to her surname – she is the only woman ever to addle Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective Sherlock Holmes. With that sort of power, it’s no wonder the character turns up to bedazzle and bedevil Holmes in SHERLOCK, a contemporary take on the sleuth developed by writers/producers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for the BBC. Season Two begins nex Sunday, May 6, on PBS at 9 PM in the U.S. (Season Two previously ran on the BBC starting New Year’s Day). Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as his companion, Afghan war veteran John Watson, soared […]Read On »

Lara Pulver is no stranger to genre television viewers. Her roles on BBC America’s ROBIN HOOD, MI-5, and HBO’s TRUE BLOOD have made her a familiar face. Of course fans of TRUE BLOOD that have read the original Charlaine Harris books were more than a little dismayed that Pulver’s character Claudine Crane the fairy was brutally killed by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) last season. However, while she was promoting a new season of PBS’ SHERLOCK she said she might be able to come back to TRUE BLOOD in the new year. “It wouldn’t surprise me if she appears as some […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: AMERICAN HORROR STORY actress Frances Conroy plays housekeeper

Frances Conroy in AMERICAN HORROR STORY - Season 1 | ©2011 FX

In AMERICAN HORROR STORY, which has its first-season finale (it’s been renewed for a second) tonight on FX at 10 PM, some ghosts appear as rotting phantoms and others appear alive and tangible. One ghost, however, is so complex that she’s actually played by two actresses. Frances Conroy is the primary incarnation of perennial housekeeper Moira O’Hara, starchy and generally reserved, but her seductive younger self is played by Alexandra Breckinridge. Which version of Moira we see depends largely on who is looking at her – we realize that protagonist Ben Harmon, played by Dylan McDermott, is starting to wise […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Denis O’Hare terrorizes AMERICAN HORROR STORY

There are a plenty of ghosts and generally unwholesome entities roaming through FX’s hit AMERICAN HORROR STORY, Wednesdays at 10, but one of the most alarming-looking characters is the still-living Larry Harvey, played by Denis O’Hare. With severe burns over half his face, a fire-crippled body and a sightless eye, Larry’s appearance isn’t half as frightening as his personality – he’s a man who can justify anything if it suits his ego or his appetites. This isn’t O’Hare’s first brush with TV genre fame – he was also the vampire King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington, in Season Three of HBO’s […]Read On »
