HOMELAND launched its first season in 2011. The series, which won an Outstanding Drama Emmy, as well as two Outstanding Lead Actress Emmys, two Outstanding Writing Emmys and more, is now in its eighth and final season Sundays on Showtime. In its first years, HOMELAND was a cat-and-mouse tug of war between returned prisoner-of-war military hero Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and doggedly determined, bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), who was – correctly – convinced that Brody had been turned by his captors and was secretly a terrorist. Carrie managed to turn Brody back, they became lovers, and he […]Read On »

24: LEGACY: EP Howard Gordon talks returning to the franchise – interview

Fox Network’s new Monday-night thriller 24: LEGACY is in some respects its own show. Corey Hawkins stars as military veteran Eric Carter, who begins working with the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) over the course of one intense day, rather than starting out as a seasoned CTU agent like Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. But this is a legacy of the original 24, with some returning characters – like Carlos Bernard’s Tony Almeida – the same ticking-clock time frame, and a lot of the behind the scenes creative team once again in the driver’s seat. Among the returnees is executive producer Howard Gordon, […]Read On »

David Mazouz [pronounced Da-VEED Ma-ZOOZ] is now in his third season of playing the young Bruce Wayne on Fox Network’s GOTHAM, Mondays at 8 PM. For those who are somehow totally unfamiliar with DC Comics mythology, Bruce will grow up to be Batman. He’s already meeting youthful versions of his future adversaries, including Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Edward Nygman/the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and, perhaps most significantly, not-yet-Catwoman Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), a street-smart thief who is Bruce’s age. This season, Mazouz is playing two roles – there’s Bruce, and then there’s an unworldly, pain-resistant copy of Bruce, […]Read On »

In ABC’s new Wednesday-night drama DESIGNATED SURVIVOR, Kiefer Sutherland stars as Tom Kirkman, a low-level government department head who suddenly finds himself President of the United States when a State of the Union address is lethally attacked by persons unknown. David Guggenheim, who wrote the films SAFE HOUSE and STOLEN, is the creator of DESIGNATED SURVIVOR. There really is such a status, a government member who is kept separate from events in case of an unlikely disaster that takes out the U.S. President, Vice-President and Speaker of the House. The series also deals with Tom’s relationship with his wife, played […]Read On »

In SECOND CHANCE, on Fox Network Fridays at 9 PM, Rob Kazinsky plays former sheriff Jimmy Pritchard. Jimmy is in the unusual position of being a 75-year-old man (played in older form by Philip Baker Hall) in a 30-something body, courtesy of a science experiment conducted to save the life of a techno-genius’ dying sister. Resurrecting Jimmy is strictly a byproduct of this as far as his benefactors are concerned, but Jimmy is determined to get to the bottom of the conspiracy that killed his older self and is now threatening his police detective son (Tim DeKay). SECOND CHANCE was […]Read On »

From beginning to end, it was quality TV. Loads of action, loads of Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) being Jack, loads of character deaths, lots of twists and swerves and above all else a smart program that doesn’t just end with fluffy […]Read On »

But should we really be surprised? It’s 24 for God’s sake. Everything is always bleak and toward the end it really ramps up the bleakness. So not only does Cheng Zhi (Tzi Ma) have the override device but he also now is control […]Read On »

You remember him right? The dude that kidnapped […]Read On »
