There are some rather disturbing character shifts in this episode, but the main story and murder mystery is one that ends up being comical (and yes I am surprised as you that murder can be a laughing matter on […]Read On »

I have a bad habit of getting up and doing other things when watching television programs that bore me, instead of sitting and faithfully watching every second of an episode. So far COPPER has held my attention, and I watch knowing that there might some subtle […]Read On »

Franka Potente in COPPER - Season 1 | ©2012 BBC AMERICA/Cineflix (Copper) Inc.

The new BBC AMERICA series COPPER is gaining critical and audience attention alike. The show set in New York in 1864 is a smart blend of period drama, police procedural, lots of action, and even some educational references. Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) is a man with a tragic past that includes a murdered daughter and a wife that has gone missing while he was off fighting in the Civil War. Even though Corcoran still has a wife out there somewhere, he has needs that more often than not are fulfilled by Eva Heissen played by the lovely Franka Potente […]Read On »

I like that mysteries carry over from week to week, but they get wrapped up just the same within a reasonable time period. “Husbands and Fathers” is an appropriate title for this new episode, even if a lot of the connotation of the title is creepy … just plain creepy. Annie (Kiara Glasco) […]Read On »

Even though the current poster for OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL looks very much like THE WIZARD OF OZ, director Sam Raimi says it shares the DNA of the L. Frank Baum books, but this is a prequel not a remake or sequel to that beloved 1939 film “We all loved THE WIZARD OF OZ and we were careful not to tread on it and careful to respect it,” admits Raimi. “Ours is a different story that leads up to THE WIZARD OF OZ. It’s how the Wizard came from Kansas to the land of Oz. It’s about a selfish […]Read On »
