GODFATHER OF HARLEM - Season 1 | ©2019 Epix

Epix’s new Sunday-night series GODFATHER OF HARLEM chronicles the life and times of Ellsworth Raymond “Bumpy” Johnson, played by Forest Whitaker, during the 1960s. Bumpy was a fascinating, paradoxical real-life figure, a gangster who not only kept order but actually helped the citizens in his Harlem neighborhood. More, Johnson had people like black revolutionary Malcolm X (played in the show by Nigel Thatch) and Baptist pastor/congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr. (played by Giancarlo Esposito) in his circle. GODFATHER OF HARLEM creators Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein (also creators of the series NARCOS) had dealt with Robinson’s story before in the […]Read On »

As movies about the workings of Wall Street go, it has the misfortune to be following THE BIG SHORT while that film – last year’s Oscar winner for Adapted Screenplay – is still in people’s memories. MONEY MONSTER […]Read On »

Not that POKER NIGHT is a straight anthology; in fact, here the framing device is the main story, with a number of vignettes spicing it up and making good use of the supporting cast.

In ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, ABC Thursdays at 8 PM, Sophie Lowe’s character Alice and Peter Gadiot’s character Cyrus, the Genie of the Lamp, are in love. They’re also on the run from both the Red Queen (Emma Rigby) and ALADDIN’s magician Jafar (Naveen Andrews). While WONDERLAND very likely marks the first time Alice and the Genie have been a couple, it turns out this isn’t the first time English actor Gadiot [pronounced “Gad-ee-oh”) has had a go-round with ALADDIN material. At a party thrown by ABC for the Television Critics Association, Gadiot explains how it is he […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Elizabeth Mitchell, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins Writer: Anne Cofell Saunders, Matt Pitts Director: Omar Madha Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 6, 2013 One question I found myself asking during the latest episode of REVOLUTION, entitled “The Patriot Act,” was why hasn’t Miles’ (Billy Burke) hand healed at this point? Everyone else that has had injuries have made remarkable recoveries. Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) had both a broken thumb and an arrow to the shoulder and shows no ill will from it. That chick that has been […]Read On »
