COSMOS, the nonfiction series devoted to science and space exploration, originally premiered in 1980. Initially the brainchild of astrophysicist/author Carl Sagan and author/filmmaker Ann Druyan [who married one another after the first series], COSMOS was revived by National Geographic Channel in 2014, with a subtitle, as COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY. Now National Geographic brings back the multi-Emmy-winning COSMOS as part of its STORYTELLING UNLEASHED programming as COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS, airing Monday nights.

FX Network’s THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON: AMERICAN CRIME STORY, Tuesdays at 10 PM, is a ten-episode drama about the famous ’90s court case that had racism, sexism, celebrity and courtroom game-playing on full public view. One of the more memorable participants in those events was the late defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, who epitomized the combination of canny strategy and showmanship. Whatever Cochran privately thought about Simpson’s innocence or guilt, he saw the case as an opportunity to spotlight police abuse of African-Americans. Cochran is portrayed in the miniseries by Courtney B. Vance. Vance, a veteran of stage (Tony winner […]Read On »

Stars: Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani Writer: Chris Chibnall & Terry Cafolla Director: Mikael Salomon & Stefan Schwartz Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: June 10th, 2010 And with that we, the audience, have reached the finale of CAMELOT season one. It has been an interesting season in both good and bad ways. The first few episodes of the series seemed to set a pace that was breakneck and moving forward with a strong surety of the direction the season would end. Then unfortunately somewhere in the middle, the season seemed to lose direction and […]Read On »

CD review: CAMELOT original TV soundtrack

Where the music of King Arthur tends to sweep in like a massively noble symphony on steeds, scoring brothers-in-arms Mychael and Jeff Danna do well by playing their leader as a subtler, second coming for another Showtime series that sexes up mythic history, this time in the realm of CAMELOT. It’s an intriguing setting for a world music approach that creates its sorcery with Indian ragas, exotic percussion, horns and Celtic rhythms, an approach that’s as timeless as it is lyrical. While the Dannas might not have the magic to get the kind of trumpeting orchestral firepower afforded to the […]Read On »

TV Review: CAMELOT – Season 1 – “Three Journeys”

Claire Forlani in CAMELOT - Season 1 | ©2011 Starz

Stars: Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani Writer: Chris Chibnall Director: Stefan Schwartz Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: May 6th, 2010 It saddens me when Period shows fall into all too familiar traps. So often they start of strong and then lose some of the head of steam that they had when they started. CAMELOT has fallen under this dark banner. The latest episode “Three Journeys” felt like a filler in between more important plot threads that were left out of this story’s continuity. King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) takes off out of Camelot after […]Read On »
