In Season 2 of ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER, Tuesdays at 9 PM, we’re still in the Forties, but we’re no longer in New York.

Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) is in charge, but office manager Rose, played by Lesley Boone, is the one who holds things together on a day-to-day basis. In Season 1, Boone’s Rose started out as a fake telephone operator at an equally fake telephone company […]Read On »

On ABC’s freshman eight-episode series MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER, Tuesdays at 9 PM, we’re with the resourceful Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) just after the end of World War II. Carter is part of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR). Carter is the SSR’s most valuable asset, a fact that is lost on most of her male colleagues. No matter – Carter has no problem saving the day without credit. A good thing, too, as SSR will one day become S.H.I.E.L.D., which is explored in the present day in MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD (which will resume its second season when Season 1 […]Read On »

It turns out there’s a walled-up room in the roommates’ home. It contains […]Read On »

Woods, Alison Louder, Deanna Russo, Mylene Dinh-Robic, Tim Rozon, Kalinka Petrie, Kyle Schmid Writer: Chris Dingess, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Jeff Renfroe Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 10, 2014 The notion of a werewolf baby shower seems intrinsically fun, not to mention made for BEING HUMAN, yet somehow in “Pack It Up, Pack It In,” the event doesn’t quite live up to its potential. Maybe it’s because there are so many plot threads that […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Dichen Lachman, Kyle Schmid, Natalie Brown, Amber Goldfarb, Deena Aziz, Dusan Dukic, Martin Thibaudeau Writer: Chris Dingess, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Paolo Barzman Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 26, 2012 The title of BEING HUMAN’s new episode “Don’t Fear the Scott” is a play on “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” because Scott is what Sally’s (Meaghan Rath) Reaper (Dusan Dukic) – or possible figment of her imagination, the jury’s still out on that one – […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 2 – “All Out of Blood”

Sam Huntington in BEING HUMAN - Season 2 - "All Out of Blood" | ©2012 Syfy/Philippe Bosse

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hagen, Natalie Brown, Susanna Fournier Writer: Chris Dingess, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Paolo Barzman Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: January 30, 2012 The BEING HUMAN episode “All Out of Blood” deals, per its title, with vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer) encountering some unplanned dietary problems, but the real strength here are some surprising and intriguing additions to the ghost mythology. On the downside, it’s becoming a matter of some suspense just how much more whining and sulking […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta Writer: Nancy Won Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 4, 2011 There are plenty of dramatic events in the BEING HUMAN episode “You’re the One That I Haunt,” but they’ll probably play better for those who haven’t seen the original, because this hews very closely to the template in two of the plot threads, while being rather brief with the third. As the episode opens, ghost Sally (Meagan Rath) is much the worse for wear after a mostly-failed exorcism attempt […]Read On »

For werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), it’s panic time when girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager) tells him she’s pregnant – not because he doesn’t want commitment, but because he’s afraid he’s passing along his wolf genes (which he still hasn’t told Nora about). Ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) has an unpleasant […]Read On »
