TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Nobody’s Fault But Mine”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Monica Breen Director: Fred Toye Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 26, 2012 I read a tweet earlier this week from the creators of REVOLUTION about how the second half of the season is much better than the first. To that I say, thank God because it really needs the help. Not that “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” was all bad. In fact, compared to last week’s disaster of an episode and the previous few episodes that […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Jim Barnes Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 19, 2012 Everything that is wrong with REVOLUTION can be summed up in the episode “Kashmir.” Not only did NBC give viewers of the show another empty promise in delivering the confrontation between Monroe (David Lyons) and Miles (Billy Burke), it gave us an entire episode that literally did nothing but move the gang from Point A to Point B with yet more mean, nasty […]Read On »

Harold Perrineau is no stranger to dark-souled characters, having played the seriously conflicted Michael Dawson on LOST and prison inmate Augustus Hill in OZ. However, Damon Pope, the Season Five villain in SONS OF ANARCHY (FX, Tuesdays at 10 PM), may be his darkest role yet. As series creator Kurt Sutter says, “I wanted an actor who … you would believe in a suit and tie standing in front of a city council meeting, at the same time he’s somebody that had the depth and the ability to turn dark and to do some of the heinous things that he […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Matt Pitts Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 5, 2012 The promos for this week’s REVOLUTION, “The Children’s Crusade,” billed this to be the episode where all the answers you want about the power going off are explained. Haha, that’s funny because none of that happened. Yeah, we got some clues about why it happened – the Department of Defense (or specifically Randall from that organization) teaming up with a small research company […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Sex and Drugs”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo Director: Steve Boyum Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 29, 2012 So, how’s that whole “wanting to see the world” thing working out for you Charlie (Tracy Spirdakos)? There were some decent aspects to REVOLUTION this week but as with most of the episodes so far this season, “Sex and Drugs” also had some pointless and fairly stupid aspects as well. After the last episode with Nora (Daniella Alonso) getting shanked by her own […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “The Doctor”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis Director: Paul Edwards Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 28, 2012 Vamping is a term from the old Broadway stage which means to play music or do a little dance or something to keep the audience in the mood while the storytelling stops to move scenery or some such thing. You can even see it in the music scores – the vamp is a section that can be played for an extended time, in case something sticks, or shortened quickly if things are […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: TWILIGHT SAGA star Billy Burke joins the REVOLUTION

In NBC’s freshman series REVOLUTION, Monday nights at 10 PM, all electricity is gone from the world. Created by Eric Kripke, who executive-produces with J.J. Abrams, with a pilot directed by fellow executive producer Jon Favreau, REVOLUTION takes place fifteen years after “the lights went out.” Much of the former United States is ruled by militias. However, a small band of people are trying to find out what really happened and restore power – both electronic and personal – to the populace. Two of the main characters are the uncle and niece team of Miles Matheson, played by Billy Burke, […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “The Crocodile”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: David H. Goodman and Robert Hall Director: David Solomon Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 21, 2012 I have often complained about the relentless plundering of the Disney canon in ONCE UPON A TIME. While I haven’t flat out said so, I strongly suspect said plundering is the result of the producers’ contract with ABC (which is owned by Disney, the company that made an art form out of synergy). Every now and then, I get the feeling, that the producers grow weary of kissing Mouse backside […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Soul Train”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers Writer: Paul Grellong Director: Jon Cassar Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 15, 2012 Through four episodes of REVOLUTION, I have been constantly singing the praises of Giancarlo Esposito’s character of Captain Tom Neville, one of the henchmen to General Monroe (David Lyons) out in the field doing his dirty work. Neville has been one of the most interesting characters on the show and his subplot involving a battle of wills with Danny (Graham Rogers) has been one of […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Lady of the Lake”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg Director: Milan Cheylov Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 14, 2012 If last week’s episode of ONCE UPON A TIME, “We Are Both,” felt like there wasn’t much movement story-wise, this week’s episode, “Lady of the Lake,” makes up for it. We’ve got three locales, two different timelines, plus the usual issues with characters with multiple names. So-o, even though the three main plotlines are inter-woven in the episode, I think it’ll be easier to deal with each one at a time. We’ll […]Read On »
