Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Evan Bleiweiss, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Pascal Verschooris  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 16, 2012 Well, that was the shortest plot thread in the history of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES plot threads, now wasn’t it kids? By plot thread I am of course referencing the plot where Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and all of his siblings are tied together by their resurrected witch of a mother Esther (Alice Evans), so she can make them mortal and then kill them off. Sad that it only lasted two […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 9, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is making the storyline involving Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his original vampire family at least interesting to watch. I was concerned initially at the start of the season when they brought Klaus back. Bringing back a villain from a previous season seemed weak sauce compared to how they had leveled up between prior seasons of the show. However, I have been pleasantly surprised with all of […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Turi Meyer, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Jeffrey G. Hunt  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 2, 2012 So the new episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is all about family. “Bringing Out the Dead” has some truly touching moments, and then some nice shockers and twists as usual. What exactly does family mean to our Mystic Falls crew? The ties that bind are tested and tightened in some cases as everyone gets put through the paces and more plots against Klaus (Joseph Morgan) move forward. The […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE talk with Lucy Lawless and creator Steven S. DeKnight

SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE, which premieres tonight on Starz at 10 PM, is actually the second season of the SPARTACUS series, even though it’s the third year of the show. Series creator and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight understands how this might cause some head-scratching. In 2010’s SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND, Andy Whitfield starred as the famous historical figure. The season followed him through his early days of being enslaved, being trained as a gladiator and finally leading a revolt at the Ludus (gladiator training camp) that left its owner Batiatus (John Hannah) definitively dead and Batiatus’ pregnant wife Lucretia, played by […]Read On »

Relatively few actresses create three indelible characters in their careers, but Alyson Hannigan has managed this hat trick and may well enact more in her future. Hannigan, born in Washington, D.C.and raised in Atlanta, started her career early, appearing in commercials before moving into films (including MY STEPMOTHER IS AN ALIEN) and television (FREE SPIRIT). Then, in 1997, Hannigan began her seven-season run as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Willow Rosenberg, who started as a shy brainy high school student and became a very powerful witch, along with achieving real-world lesbian icon status when the character came out. Willow lives on […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Dahl Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 19, 2012 I appreciate that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is constantly evolving their characters and the characters relationships to each other. I really do. I don’t like tuning into a show every week to find the same old stagnant relationships that we’ve seen for a couple of seasons continue to limp towards some kind of inevitable confrontation or goal. The writers on this show consistently try to up the ante and to […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Wendy Stanzler Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 12, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is still one of my favorite guilty pleasures on television. The series is such a soap opera with supernatural elements that you can’t tear yourself away for fear of missing something important (or something tiny that will turn out to be important). “Our Town” continues the power play between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley); each one seeing how they can out maneuver and out […]Read On »

Smith Director: John Behring    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 5, 2012 Well, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is back from hiatus finally, and once again the clever writers of the series have found ways to change relationships, and flip a lot of things on their ears with “The New Deal” Before the break the big plan to kill Klaus (Joseph Morgan) was kiboshed by Stefan (Paul Wesley) who was trying to save Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) and really pretty […]Read On »

In the CW’s freshman series RINGER, which airs Tuesdays at 9 PM, Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan. Wealthy Siobhan invited Bridget to New York, then faked her own death. Bridget has adopted Siobhan’s identity, partly to get away from Victor Machado, the determined FBI agent played by Nestor Carbonell, as Victor wants Bridget to testify against a homicidal mob boss. Back in 2004, Carbonell starred with future RINGER colleague Ioan Gruffudd in the short-lived legal drama CENTURY CITY. The New York-born actor has also been a series regular on SUDDENLY SUSAN and THE TICK, but […]Read On »
