Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: May 13, 2012 What a season finale. There may have been times when I questioned the writers, but “A Land Without Magic” does nothing but prove just how well-crafted ONCE UPON A TIME is. This is exactly where the story was headed way back last spring when they presumably shot the pilot that became the first episode. Not only that, you’ve got pay-off, wonderful tension and performances. It’s just a great episode and a lovely end […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Jane Espenson Director: David H. Goodman Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: May 6, 2012 We’re at the penultimate episode of the season for ONCE UPON A TIME, and it’s all about “An Apple Red as Blood,” as Regina (aka The Evil Queen, played by Lana Parilla) decides to use James/Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) as bait to get Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) to eat the fateful apple, then in the modern world, gets Jefferson (aka The Mad Hatter, Sebastian Stan) to get that same apple to bring down Emma […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Noosphere Rising”

Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) finds Teller's mysterious workshop in the Noosphere Rising" on Fox's TOUCH | (c) 2012 Isabella Vosmikova/FOX

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Tim Kring & Carol Barbee Director: Gwyneth Horder-Payton Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 26, 2012 One of the toughest challenges the writers of TOUCH must have is making sure all the different story lines intersect organically while all we viewers have to do is keep track of them. In “Noosphere Rising” the connections aren’t quite as clear, but here goes. On the main story front, Martin Baum (Kiefer Sutherland) is trying to make sense of Arthur Teller’s (Danny Glover) death, as is Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). While going over the surveillance video of […]Read On »

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Ian Goldberg & Andrew Chambliss Director: Gwynett Horder-Payton Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 29, 2012 You’d think “The Stranger” would have come closer to the season finale of ONCE UPON A TIME as it’s definitely rich in pay-offs. Oh yes, oh yes. Like the whole August Booth (Eion Bailey) storyline. Ever since he showed up at the tale end of “True North,” we’ve been wondering about him, especially as we find out that he does know more than he should about the fairy tale world. But as we saw […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “The Return”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Paul Edwards Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 22, 2012 For all the teasing ABC has been doing, it looks like we’re going to get some answers about the dual worlds of ONCE UPON A TIME. The problem is, in “The Return,” we’re getting more questions. We’ve often noted that August (Eion Bailey) does not appear to have a fairy tale world counterpart, but that he does seem to be in on what’s going on in Storybrooke, Maine. And the episode leads us along to believe […]Read On »

Stars: Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, Niall Matter, Kavan Smith, Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton Writer: Jaime Paglia Director: Matt Hastings Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 8 PM Airdate: April 16, 2011 There are so many things to love about EUREKA that it’s kind of bittersweet that “Lost” is actually the Season 5 premiere of the final season. Here is a show that celebrates genius and being smart, but also respects each character’s gifts. It is one of the most diverse shows on television, with two African Americans in prominent roles as scientists, including one woman. And women here are just […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 2 – “Entanglement”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Chris Levinson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 12, 2012 One of the realities of TOUCH is that there’s generally a lot going on as the story paths weave and interchange. “Entanglement” may be this episode’s title, but it could just as easily have been the series title, as well. Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), who lost his wife when the World Trade Center came down during the 9/11 attacks, is trying to raise his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz) who can’t speak. The trick is that Jake “sees” and apparently “feels” […]Read On »

ABC’s freshman hit ONCE UPON A TIME, Sundays at 8 PM, is unlike anything else currently on television. Created by its show runners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, ONCE posits that the curse of the Wicked Queen (Lana Parrilla) has deposited all of the inhabitants of Fairytale Land – Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Jiminy Cricket (Raphael Sbarge), the Magic Mirror (Giancarlo Esposito) et al – in our world’s town of Storybrooke, Maine, a picturesque community where nothing ever changes. Due to the curse, the inhabitants have no memory of their former selves and don’t realize that […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: SCANDAL rocks former LOST star Henry Ian Cusick

SCANDAL, premiering tonight, Thursday at 10 PM on ABC, is the latest drama from GREY’S ANATOMY creator Shonda Rhimes. However, the main characters in the new series are doctors of reputation rather than of medicine. An elite crew of lawyers, investigators and fixers under the direction of the uber-efficient Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) takes care of alternately hushing up and exposing the dirty secrets swirling around Washington,D.C. – including one that promises to provide a season-long arc. Olivia’s right-hand man is Stephen Finch, played by Henry Ian Cusick. ABC series with intricate plots are nothing new to Cusick – he […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 1 – “The Stable Boy”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Raphael Sbarge, Eion Bailey Writer: Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 1, 2012 One of the things I have loved most about ONCE UPON A TIME is that characters like The Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) have real reasons for being evil. Note, I didn’t say good reasons, after all, good reasons take the stuffin’s out of being evil and that can put a nasty hit on your cred as an evil character, but in “The Stable Boy,” we finally see where Regina gets it all, too. The episode […]Read On »
