Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: James Wong Director: James Wong Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2016 So this was definitely more what I was hoping for from THE X-FILES in terms of storyline and bringing the characters together in a proper reunion (see my review of the first episode here) “Founder’s Mutation” did more in the first 15 minutes for this revival than the entire previous episode did. We see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again part of the FBI’s task force to […]Read On »

Scott Veach, Rebecca Kirsch Director: Jonathan Frakes Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: August 25, 2011 There’s nothing like finding an old friend on a series like LEVERAGE and as “The Queen’s Gambit Job” wraps up the Season 4 summer finale (more episodes air in November), the series brings back the team’s constant nemesis Jim Sterling (Mark Sheppard). Most of the time Sterling is there to thwart the team’s various jobs, but this time, he needs to enlist them for reasons that we later learn are far […]Read On »

As LEVERAGE wraps up the summer portion of Season 4 (with a return of regular antagonist Jim Sterling played by Mark Sheppard), ASSIGNMENT X chatted with star Aldis Hodge who plays hacker Hardison on the series. Throughout the course of the TNT series, Hardison has went from wise-cracking loner to someone who is finally accepting that he’s part of a team. He also has feelings for the somewhat closes off Parker (Beth Riesgraf) which has been gaining some traction the past couple of seasons. Here’s what Hodge had to say about the latest developments.

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The Hot Potato Job”

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Mitch Pileggi, Bhanna Peget Writer: Jenn Kao, series created by John Rogers & Chris Downey Director: John Harrison Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 24, 2011 LEVERAGE’s “The Hot Potato Job” is decent enough – it literally involves a stolen (i.e., hot) potato, so points up front for a good title, as well as smart casting in employing Mitch Pileggi as the big bad of the week. However, given that this is the episode where team leader Nathan (Timothy Hutton) and longtime unconsummated/then consummated-but-pretending-it’s-no-big-deal love interest Sophie […]Read On »

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver Director: Mike Rohl Writer: Brett Matthews Network: The CW, airs Fridays Original Telecast: March 4, 2011 Well that’s one way to get rid of a host of characters in one fell swoop on SUPERNATURAL. Not only did we lose Gwen (Jessica Heafey) and Samuel (Mitch Pileggi), who had become major characters this season, in “And Then There Were None” we also lost long-time hunter ally in Rufus (Steven Williams) – a fan favorite and someone that had grown to be a quirky yet funny occasional guest star.
