Teen detective Nancy Drew has been part of the culture since her first adventures were published as novels in 1930. Actually created by publisher Edward Stratemeyer, the Nancy Drew books have been written since then by numerous authors all using the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. Nancy Drew has been adapted for both the big and small screens before. The CW has now launched its new NANCY DREW series on Wednesday nights, starring Kennedy McMann as the eponymous sleuth. Nancy is currently working as a waitress at a restaurant in her native small town of Horseshoe Bay. She’s trying to stay out […]Read On »
In CSI: CYBER, now in its second season on CBS Sunday nights at 10 PM, Shad Moss plays Brody “Baby Face” Nelson. Nelson is a former “black hat” computer hacker whose skills have gotten him recruited to work for the FBI, under the command of Cyber Crimes division leader Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette). Moss has a little in common with his character, in that they both started young and were doing something else before their current jobs, though Moss’ real past is far more benign. Under the name Bow Wow (starting out as Lil’ Bow Wow), he was a best-selling […]Read On »

It’s so hard to wrap up a long-running series, be faithful to the core values of it and still satisfy fan expectations. It’s even harder when your series comes to an end quicker than you would have liked or expected.
The latter is the case of MEDIUM. It only made it through a half-season this year before CBS pulled the plug after seven years (five of those were spent on NBC, two on CBS).
This at least gave creator Glenn Gordon Caron time to craft an actual finale, rather than leaving the show on a limbo note.
For seven years on MEDIUM, Allison Dubois, played by Patricia Arquette, has seen and heard dead people, an ability she’s used to help the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. Her three young daughters all share some version of her gift. The only person in the household who doesn’t have psychic qualities is husband and father Joe Dubois, played by Jake Weber. Joe may at times be bewildered, skeptical or even totally exasperated, but he is unshakably loyal and loving, attributes that have had the character rated in multiple polls as one of the best spouses on TV. MEDIUM spent five […]Read On »
