Annie Parisse in THE FOLLOWING - Season 1 | ©2013 Fox/Michael Lavine

In Fox’s freshman hit THE FOLLOWING, Monday nights at 9 PM, it seems like Annie Parisse’s character, FBI agent and cult specialist Debra Parker, is one of the good guys. But on this serial killer thriller, created by Kevin Williamson, it’s hard to tell. Did Jacob (Nico Tortorella), a devoted follower of charismatic multiple murderer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) spare Parker in last week’s episode because he needed leverage against series hero Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), or did Parker reveal something to Jacob while we weren’t looking? Parisse, of course, is hardly likely to share an answer to that question. […]Read On »

The sequel to 2008’s TAKEN, TAKEN 2 brings back ex-Black Ops agent Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson), still worrying about his teenaged daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and her mom/Bryan’s ex Lenore (Famke Janssen). TAKEN 2 on the one hand is even sillier than its predecessor, but it also seems to be exactly the movie its makers set out to put forth. […]Read On »

Stars: Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson Writer: Jonathan Nolan Director: David Semel Network: CBS, Thursdays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: September 22, 2011 This isn’t (so far as we know) real, but it certainly sounds plausible – what if the government commissioned a tech genius to invent software that could isolate possible terrorist “chatter”? And what if that software included an element that was later discarded, which also picked up indications of non-terrorist crimes about to be committed? So far, so good with writer Jonathan Nolan’s premise (he shares creator status with J.J. Abrams) for PERSON OF INTEREST, […]Read On »
