As is widely known, Paul Walker, who plays FAST & FURIOUS series stalwart Brian O’Conner, died in […]Read On »

Universal Pictures presented the American Premiere of FAST & FURIOUS 6 at the Universal CityWalk and Gibson Amphitheatre, Universal City Hollywood on May 21st.

Before the concert girls were dancing on the stage and the music was so loud that I had to put earplugs in. It was amazing that the stars walking the carpet could hear us scream their names between the […]Read On »

With Season 1 of DALLAS just wrapped, the successful TNT continuation of the classic CBS series, we’ve seen one of the rare instances where characters from an original series have been expertly integrated into a next generation saga. As executive producer and occasional director of DALLAS, Michael M. Robin knew the risks and rewards of bringing such an iconic show back. We spoke with Robin at a recent Paley Center event in Beverly Hills promoting the THE TELEVISION OUT OF THE BOX exhibit featuring props, wardrobe and sets from classic Warner Bros. Television projects. Here’s what he had to say […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Revelations” – Season Finale

Larry Hagman in DALLAS - Season 1 - "Revelations" | ©2012 TNT/Bill Matlock

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre & Robert Rovner Director: Steve Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: August 8, 2012 The build up was intense, the results, not quite what I expected. Still, the DALLAS Season One finale “Revelations” was only partially intriguing, somewhat suspenseful and not hardly at all surprising. Perhaps, it was because my expectations were too high. Or maybe it was because I was led to believe I could expect above average greatness, every time, ever week. This week, arguably, the […]Read On »

Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: Aug 1st, 2012 As we reach the end of Season 1 DALLAS, I can’t help but feel sad, TV depressed that is. After all, a show finally comes around that can not only peak my interest but also keep it throughout the entire season. Now, granted the season is only ten episodes – note to producers: that’s not enough – but still after one episode of ANGER MANAGEMENT and […]Read On »

We last saw John Ross being driven away in a police car. Not able to explain his DNA under Veronica Martinez’s fingernails, John Ross (Josh Henderson), no surprise, is arrested for her murder. But, as always, there is more to this case than meets the eye. John Ross refuses to give […]Read On »
