The premise of Starz’s Sunday-night speculative-fiction drama COUNTERPART is that, 30 years ago, reality split and created a second universe that was at the time identical to our own. Only a privileged few know about this. They are headquartered in a complex that sits above the underground tunnel in Berlin that joins the two dimensions, which have since taken different paths. Olivia Williams plays two different versions of Emily Silk. This world’s Emily is in a coma after an accident. Her devoted husband, Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons), comes to see her every night at the hospital. Howard, a low-level functionary, […]Read On »

GRACEPOINT, the ten-episode miniseries airing in weekly installments on Fox beginning Thursday, October 2, is based on the eight-part British miniseries BROADCHURCH.

British actor David Bradley has just hit a fandom trifecta (there isn’t a the fandom trifecta – there will never be just three): he was the unhappily non-magical custodian Filch in the HARRY POTTER films, he continues as the indelible Walder Frey, host of the Red Wedding, on HBO’s GAME OF THRONES, and now he’s part of the DOCTOR WHO universe. Once upon a time, hard as it may be to recall and longer ago than many Whovians have been alive, DOCTOR WHO quite simply did not exist. It was brought into being in 1963 by a team including producer […]Read On »

Olivia is livid when she finds that Alec has been handed the job she was promised, but this is nothing compared to her shock when […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Olivia Colman, Harry Lloyd, Alexandra Roach, Iain Glen, Anthony Head, Richard E. Grant Writer: Abi Morgan Director: Phyllida Lloyd Distributor: The Weinstein Company Release Date: December 30, 2011 There are a number of reasons to see THE IRON LADY. Foremost, as one might expect, is Meryl Streep’s phenomenal performance as Margaret Thatcher, both at the peak of her power and in her later dementia. Streep doesn’t do an impersonation of the well-known public figure. Instead, she makes internal sense of every action shown here, whether she is cajoling the shade of her husband […]Read On »
