SUPERNATURAL embarks on its fifteenth and final season on The CW on Thursday, October 10. The series, created by Eric Kripke, started with the relatively modest premise of the Winchester brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), fighting monsters and ghosts throughout the U.S. (even though the show is actually shot in Vancouver). As the seasons unspooled, though, the mythology got progressively more dense, until the Winchesters were actually tangling with Lucifer (mostly Mark Pellegrino, though other actors have embodied the fallen angel as well) and even God (Rob Benedict). At the end of Season 12, in May 2017, […]Read On »

DC’s new DOOM PATROL, now streaming exclusively on DC Universe online, with new episodes dropping Friday nights, concerns a group of other-than-human not-quite-superheroes.

Jessica De Gouw and Alano Miller have both been giving interviews for hours already when they sit down with Assignment X to talk about Season 2 of WGN America’s Wednesday-night drama UNDERGROUND. However, both actors talk about the pre-Civil War series, concerning the Underground Railroad, with an energy and enthusiasm that belies their long day. De Gouw plays Elizabeth Hawkes, who is initially drawn into the abolitionist movement by her husband John (Marc Blucas), but who over the first season developed perhaps even more passion for the cause than her spouse has. Miller plays Cato, who bears visible scars inflicted […]Read On »

THE FLASH begins its third season on The CW Tuesday, October 4. Since the Flash, aka Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), just altered the past in the second-season finale to save his mother, there’s no telling what the present will be like.

Martin, originally from Virginia, is famous to Broadway theatergoers for his stint in the original cast of RENT; he reprised his role in the film version. Martin is probably best known to television viewers for playing another police detective, […]Read On »

CD Review: THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD soundtrack

Before he became the go-to TV superhero scorer for DC with the likes of ARROW, THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL, Blake Neely was spending much of his scoring time during the first decade of the new millennium in the company of sweet romantic dramas like FIRST DAUGHTER, THE WEDDING DATE and STARTER FOR 10. One of his most delightful scores before he put on his cape was playing the amazing, jazzy mentalist tricks of 2008’s THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD. Director Sean McGinly based John Malkovich’s rage-prone mental illusionist on his own stint with The Amazing Kreskin, putting himself in the personage of Colin Hanks’ personal […]Read On »

In SUPERGIRL, on CBS Mondays at 8 PM, our heroine in her alter ego of newspaper executive assistant Kara Danvers, played by Melissa Benoist, works in a pretty swanky-looking high-rise. However, Kara’s adoptive sister Alex Danvers, played by Chyler Leigh, has a much cooler workplace, the literally underground headquarters of the Department of Extranormal Operations, aka D.E.O. When CBS allows the Television Critics Association press tour to visit the SUPERGIRL sets, the huge soundstage, with faux cave walls and intricate technology stations, is thrilling to see. It may be make-believe, but it still looks pretty impressive. In the SUPERGIRL universe, […]Read On »
