David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who investigate possibly paranormal and/or extraterrestrial events with varying degrees of belief and skepticism. Also back is Mitch Pileggi as their enigmatic boss, Walter Skinner, whose past gets examined in the February 7 episode, “Kitten.” Pileggi, a native of Portland, Oregon, has been with THE X-FILES […]Read On »

It isn’t that actor Fran Kranz only works with people he’s met on the projects he’s acted in for Joss Whedon – the TV series DOLLHOUSE and the films CABIN IN THE WOODS and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. In the past year, Kranz has had a recurring role on DALLAS and made several features (more about them later) that have nothing to do with those connections. Then again, he does often work with his fellow DOLLHOUSE alumni. One case in point is the short film THE LORD OF CATAN, which has its Los Angeles public premiere Saturday, May 31 at […]Read On »

Actor Mitch Pileggi has been in his share of TV classics. He spent nine seasons, and appeared in the two big-screen spin-offs, as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner in THE X-FILES.

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Gail Gilchriest Director: Ken Topolsky Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: April 8th,  2013 Sex, drugs and lies pretty much sums up this week’s DALLAS. Everyone plots, schemes and lies to get what they want. So, it makes sense when even the truth is too much for some. When John Ross (Josh Henderson) tells Pamela (Julia Gonzalo) her father was to blame for the explosion that killed her babies she hardly believes him, throwing him out. Sometimes it’s easier to live a fallacy […]Read On »

High voltage surrounds the Ewing family as Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) hooks up with Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi) to take down the family. I don’t know how these people sleep at night! The stress, the tragedies, the hysteria — it’s enough to put you in a loony bin! Still, without the drama we wouldn’t have the intrigue that the show […]Read On »

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Robert Rovner Director: Jesse Bochco Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: March 25th, 2013 Explosive is more than one way to describe this week’s DALLAS episode “Guilt and Innocence.” Relationships implode while Ewing Enterprises is severely damaged by the destruction that almost cost the lives of many and put the lives of Pamela’s (Julie Gonzalo) and Christopher’s (Jesse Metcalfe) babies in harm’s way. Oh, but that isn’t half of it. The drama heats up between Harris (Mitch Pileggi) and his mother (Judith Light) […]Read On »

Ewing has proven itself to be bittersweet. Yes, we lost the most infamous villain in television forever but, boy did it open up a bevy of story lines for DALLAS. Most noticeably it left a gaping hole where he once stood. Wasting no time at all,  “Prey” features Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) and Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi) stepping up their devilish plots to take the […]Read On »

Robin Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: Mar. 11, 2013 Whoa … it was almost impossible to get through the episode of J.R.’s funeral without having a tear shed, especially knowing we are seeing a cast in mourning for the real man, Larry Hagman. Tonight’s DALLAS was spot on dramatic, revelatory and fitting for the man who put Texas on the map over 30 years ago. The opening gave us Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), Bobby (Patrick Duffy), John […]Read On »
