THE RESIDENT, now in its first year Monday nights on Fox, is a different kind of medical show. It starts out with one of its main characters, Bruce Greenwood’s top surgeon Randolph Bell, covering up his patient-killing operating room mistake. While there are plenty of ethical doctors and nurses around (played by Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal and Shaunette Renee Wilson, among others), THE RESIDENT also gets into a subject most other shows in the genre avoid like the plague: medical bills. Merrin Dungey (the “g” is soft) plays hospital CEO Claire Thorpe, whose job it is to maximize profits. Dungey, […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

AVENGED | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Ashley Madekwe on SALEM and REVENGE

SALEM poster - Season 1 | ©2014 WGN America

SALEM, WGN America’s first scripted dramatic series, airing Sundays at 10 PM, deals with the suspicions of witchcraft in that colony during the late seventeenth century. In series creators Adam Simon and Brannon Braga’s version of events, witches are real, very scary – and have a gift for framing other people for their sometimes bloody deeds. Some of the characters are invented, but some, like Ashley Madekwe’s Tituba, are people documented in history. Tituba was a slave who was tried for witchcraft, though there are conflicting opinions on her ethnicity and nationality. In Arthur Miller’s play THE CRUCIBLE, Tituba unwittingly […]Read On »

CD Review: REVENGE soundtrack

Murder, greed and betrayal have always been part and parcel of ABC’s primetime television schedule, especially when dealing with wealthy characters – whether they are a jet-setting dynasty or a bunch of desperate housewives. But among those well-heeled heels, REVENGE has stepped forward as the mother of the network’s female-skewing payback shows, or rather a daughter out to make her dad’s tormentors pay. Now about to claim more villains in season 3, a big part of REVENGE‘s nasty touch of class continues to be come from the singularly credited composer Izler, who’s made sure to get an orchestra to help […]Read On »

As REVENGE heads into its two-hour second-season finale, Sunday May 12 at 9 PM, Henry Czerny’s character Conrad Grayson has a lot going on.

Nolan has had a tough year, what with losing his corporation and having his girlfriend kidnapped and murdered, but it sounds like the worse things get for the character, the better actor Mann likes […]Read On »

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Mark B. Perry & Joe Fazzio Director: Stephen Schwartz Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013 At last, at last, we get to find out who died when the Amanda went down, as we saw in the season premiere of REVENGE. And, in fact, “Sacrifice” starts as it did at the beginning of the season, with the divers and the hand with the wedding band. Now, I have been writing all season that I thought it would be Aidan (Barry Sloane). It made sense, since Aidan clearly was […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Union”

A scene from REVENGE "Union" | (c) 2013 ABC/Richard Cartwright

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Michael Foley & Tde Sullivan Director: Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 10, 2013 So “Union” is supposedly about all the forces, good and evil, getting together on REVENGE. But do we really care about that? It’s all about that sunken boat from this season’s premiere and whose body was in it. The way this episode was teased, I really thought this one was going to be the one where we find out. However, knowing this show, it’s entirely possibly they’ll find a way to drag that storyline […]Read On »
