Exclusive Interview: ATLANTIS star Mark Addy brings strength to Hercules

Most people’s mental image of Hercules from Greek mythology is of a tall, muscular, handsome demigod who can flatten tall monsters with a single punch. This would not precisely describe the Hercules played by Mark Addy in ATLANTIS, the action/adventure/fantasy now in its first season on BBCAmerica, Saturdays at 9 PM. In ATLANTIS, created by Johnny Capps, Howard Overman and Julian Murphy, we’re in the realm of the ancient Greek myths, but the legend of Hercules has been principally invented by Hercules. He teams up with a pre-Argonauts Jason (Jack Donnelly), a pre-snakes Medusa (Jemima Rooper) and a pre-mathematics-changing-theory Pythagoras […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: December 12, 2013 After the three-park SOUTH PARK epic that took on Black Friday, GAME OF THRONES and the videogame console wars between PS4 and XBOX ONE, the series gets back to basics with a great season finale “The Hobbit.” When SOUTH PARK does satire right, it’s dead on and this episode tackles the poor role models young girls have from the likes of heavily Photoshopped celebrities like Kim Kardashian. It all starts when cheerleader Wendy tries to give heavy-set and ugly Lisa Berger a pep […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: David Bradley on AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME and being the first Who – PART 1

AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME | ©2013 BBCAmerica

British actor David Bradley has just hit a fandom trifecta (there isn’t a the fandom trifecta – there will never be just three): he was the unhappily non-magical custodian Filch in the HARRY POTTER films, he continues as the indelible Walder Frey, host of the Red Wedding, on HBO’s GAME OF THRONES, and now he’s part of the DOCTOR WHO universe. Once upon a time, hard as it may be to recall and longer ago than many Whovians have been alive, DOCTOR WHO quite simply did not exist. It was brought into being in 1963 by a team including producer […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 13, 2013 After last week’s dreadful “Ginger Cow” episode, SOUTH PARK bounces back with what may very well be their next multi-episode epic currently dubbed “Black Friday.” Paying homage to GAME OF THRONES, the story follows Cartman and his friends rallying together to be the first inside the mall stores on Black Friday. The first 20 people inside, get 80 percent off of anything, which means they can be the first to get the new next gen gaming console – an Xbox One or Playstation […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Leslie Jordan, Steve Valentine, Al Rodrigo Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 5, 2013 SUPERNATURAL tells us right up front that “Dog Dean Afternoon” is going to be one of its relatively light segments. The “Then” section, although it does have the bits necessary to keep us up to speed with the story arc, is mainly a montage of comedic bits that’s actually funnier than some of the episodes represented here. Dean (Jensen Ackles) is still worried […]Read On »

Sheppard, Felicia Day, Guildhart Jackson, Tiio Horn, Maya Massar Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 29, 2013 Instead of going for either terror or utterly bizarre (two of the more expected choices), this year’s SUPERNATURAL Halloween episode “Slumber Party” decides to open the door, literally, to Oz. In a black-and-white prologue set in 1935, Hunter Dorothy (Tiio West) brings in a captured witch (Maya Massar) to the Men of Letters headquarters. Something happens, though at first it’s not […]Read On »

Everyone knows that the Emmys never nominate horror programming, which is why FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM is nominated for fifteen Emmys this year – uh, wait a minute. FX President John Landgraf takes some time during a break at the Television Critics Association press tour to discuss the Emmy love for his network’s show that has “horror” in its title. The AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM nominations include Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, Outstanding Actress (Jessica Lange, who won an Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy last year for playing a different role in the series’ first season), Outstanding Supporting Actor (James Cromwell […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Dwight Yoakam Writer: Jacob Young, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 15, 2013 There aren’t too many shows that can get away with jokes about castration. GAME OF THRONES and TRUE BLOOD show the act, but it’s not meant to be funny. To be fair, the WILFRED episode “Distance” doesn’t actually have emasculation, so levity is a little more possible here. How exactly does Ryan (Elijah Wood) get from obsessing over a crayon […]Read On »
