Although it shares the same name as its 1975 predecessor (and the 2003 feature film), CBS’ Thursday night drama SWAT is largely a new endeavor. While the Special Weapons and Tactics squad is still named Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson and we still hear Barry De Vorzon’s indelible theme music, this SWAT is a much more grounded take on the heavily armed crisis division of the police department. Set in and around South Central Los Angeles, the new SWAT deals extensively not only with police response to violent crime, but also the strained relationship between the department and the often mistrustful community […]Read On »

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is the latest version of the venerable STAR TREK franchise.
