AMERICAN CRIME STORY: Writer Tom Rob Smith on THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE – Exclusive Interview

AMERICAN CRIME STORY logo l ©2017 FX

FX’s Wednesday-night second installment of the AMERICAN CRIME STORY anthology drama series, THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE, deals not only with the well-known event of the title, but of the murder spree that led up to it. Andrew Cunanan, played in the miniseries by Darren Criss, killed at least four other men – Jeffrey Trail, David Madson, Lee Miglin and William Reese – before attacking Versace, who is portrayed by Edgar Ramirez. Based in part on Maureen Orth’s nonfiction book VULGAR FAVORS, AMERICAN CRIME STORY argues that law enforcement was slow to track Cunanan due to the homophobia of the […]Read On »

The GLEE Season 4 finale “All or Nothing” is about as anti-climactic as they come. It feels like a series finale after everyone involved with the show has given up, not a show with two more seasons committed to it. The joyous, cool and innovative GLEE, […]Read On »

With Rachel (Lea Michele) getting her Broadway callback for FUNNY GIRL and Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) getting a thank you call from Rachel for all he did for her, the theme is fitting. It’s about embracing everything […]Read On »

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Ross Maxwell Director: Elodie Keene Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 18, 2013 After last week’s devastatingly tasteless and offensive “Shooting Star” episode which dealt with the issue of a school shooting (without having anyone do any shooting, a gun merely went off), GLEE tries to get back on track with “Sweet Dreams” with mixed results. The problem is, once you go down a dark road like […]Read On »

It’s a very tricky topic, if handled poorly could totally fail miserably. If handled properly, it might shine some light on recent events that has been all over the news in […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 4 – “Guilty Pleasures”

  Writer: Russel Friend & Garrett Lerner Director: Eric Stoltz Network: Fox, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: March 24, 2013 Let’s just face it – GLEE is running on fumes. Story has become secondary, almost arbitrary and now the show feels like it only exists to sell songs and CDs. The storylines have become ridiculous during the second half of the season, the transition with the graduating glass (most of them conveniently enough in New York) and the remaining McKinley High students has been awkward and the characters continue to do things that make no sense whatsoever (Finn kissing Emma, huh?).

Once audiences warmed to the new characters and dynamics at McKinley, it’s become very difficult to even care about Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) as they’re living out their […]Read On »

There are some clues, particularly with Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) there, and the hint […]Read On »

After Marley (Melissa Benoist) passed out during Sectionals because of her eating disorder, New Directions lost to the Warblers. They’re done for. No more competition for the Glee club this year. They screwed up […]Read On »

Honestly, I expected this episode to be a complete disaster – as we see many of McKinley […]Read On »
