Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell Writer: Anne Cofell Saunders Director: Félix Enríquez Alcalá Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 8, 2012 The fourth episode of REVOLUTION, “The Plague Dogs,” gave us a breather in terms of the whole Monroe Militia vs. the resistance storyline that beleaguered the show for the past few episodes. The show actually took a direction I had hoped it would take in focusing on maybe some of the people impacted by the changed world – for better or worse – and have […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “We Are Both”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 It is fun to see that Regina (Lana Parilla) was a completely different person when she married Snow White’s father, and that she had her heart in the right place. But I can’t say that the “We Are Both” episode of ONCE UPON A TIME really gets us anywhere in the overall story telling. If anything, the episode foundered under too many waves of philosophizing. Now released from the curse that sent them all there, […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “No Quarter”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Monica Owusu-Breen Director: Sanford Bookstaver Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 1, 2012 The third episode of REVOLUTION, “No Quarter,” had more poopy sad faces from Charlie (Tracy Spirdakos) than you could shake a stick at. Every scene was a close up of her sad, crying face acting like someone had just kicked her puppy. It was annoying. I understand she is “new to all this” in that she hasn’t been outside her small village until just a few days ago. But […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Broken” – Season Premiere

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: September 30, 2012 I will say “Broken” is an admirable start to the second season of ONCE UPON A TIME. While we haven’t seen Captain Hook yet (in spite of endless network teases), producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have not finished mining the Disney pantheon, as Mulan (Jamie Chung), Prince Phillip (Julian Morris) and Princess Aurora (Sarah Bolger) are all in attendance as we head back to Storybrooke, Maine, the town to which […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Chained Heat”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 24, 2012 Well things have certainly come to a grinding halt on REVOLUTION after a very impressive “Pilot” episode where it was wall to wall action and a whole handful of good ideas. “Chained Heat” isn’t nearly as good as the opening episode which seems to sometimes be the case with big opening episodes that are targeted to grab the viewers’ attention and then subsequently falter to deliver in the following […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Jon Favreau Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 17, 2012 What happens when you take the brains behind one of the most successful horror television series, SUPERNATURAL, and combine the brains behind LOST, ALIAS and the relaunch of STAR TREK and mix it with the guy who directed IRON MAN and IRON MAN 2 – a pretty damn good pilot. REVOLUTION is the interesting idea from Erik Kripe (SUPERNATURAL), JJ Abrams (LOST, ALIAS) and Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) about […]Read On »

CD Review: ONCE UPON A TIME soundtrack

ABC’s fractured fairy tale show couldn’t have asked for a better composer than Mark Isham to tread between fantasy land and the “real world” of Storybrooke. Now with ONCE UPON A TIME’s yarns looking like they’ll be flipping for a while on Rumplestiltskin’s wheel, Intrada compiles the best of Isham’s episodic enchantments for an album the show’s fans will appreciate, as well as those appreciative of his cinematic stories. And therein lies TIME‘s best spell at fully bringing together those two worlds with Isham’s lush, yet melodically delicate sound. For while he might not have scored this kind of live […]Read On »

In the second part of our exclusive interview with TOUCH creator/executive producer Tim Kring, he talks about what we can expect in TOUCH Season 2 and what Season Five of HEROES would have been about. ASSIGNMENT X: What can you say about your plans for Season Two of TOUCH? TIM KRING: The season finale changes almost everything [from] the first season. We end in a place where the slate is wiped completely clean. Jake [David Mazouz] and Martin [Kiefer Sutherland] are now in a new life, in a new part of the world, with no ties to their former life, […]Read On »
