Stars:  Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Jessy Schram, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Will Patton, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Gloria Reuben, Robert Sean Leonard Writer: Remi Aubuchon Director: Greg Beeman Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: August 4, 2013  I could probably forgive FALLING SKIES for not being the clever, thoughtful, morally ambiguous post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi show I would prefer it to be if it were able to string together a few more purely entertaining episodes like last week’s “Journey to Xilbalba.”  But my takeaway from “Brazil,” FALLING SKIES’ Season Three finale, is that I’m […]Read On »

Regnier Director: Sergio Mimica-Gazzan Network: TNT, airs Sunday Nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2013 Finally, FALLING SKIES is righting the ship.  After spending most of this season meandering through the aftermath of a genocidal alien invasion that somehow no longer seems scary enough, “The Pickett Line” went darker, added a real sense of danger to the proceedings, and in the process made a lot of […]Read On »

Stars: Hugh Laurie, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Peter Jacobson, Odette Annable, Charlyne Yi Writers: David Shore, Peter Blake, Eli Attie Director: David Shore Network: Fox, airs Mondays Original Telecast: May 22, 2012 Anyone checking into the Series Finale of HOUSE expecting Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) to change his colors was given a little bit of a surprise. “Everybody Dies” is a puzzle, the one’s House loves to solve, but it’s a different kind of puzzle – one that House needs to solve about himself. When a resourceful drug addict shows up (James LeGros) with a strange […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Robert Sean Leonard on the end of HOUSE

HOUSE ends its eight-year run tonight with a two-hour finale beginning at 8 PM on Fox. We caught up very briefly with Robert Sean Leonard, who has played Dr. James Wilson, exasperated best friend of Hugh Laurie’s difficult-to-get-along-with Dr. Gregory House, for the entire run, and got his views of two topics – his love of theatre and his dislike of the term “bromance,” especially as applied to Wilson and House. ASSIGNMENT X: You’ve been on Broadway twelve times so far. Do you have a preference for doing series television or theatrical film or stage? ROBERT SEAN LEONARD: Yes. It’s […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: DEAD POET’S SOCIETY

DEAD POET'S SOCIETY Blu-ray | ©2012 Touchstone Home Entertainment

Stars: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles, Kurtwood Smith Writer: Tom Schulman Director: Peter Weir Distributor: Touchstone Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $20.00 DEAD POET’S SOCIETY was a great movie the year it was released in 1989, but it’s also aged incredibly well over the years with its timeless story of non-conformity and free-thinking set at an all boy’s private school circa the 1950s. Robin Williams (in a very under-stated and quite effective performance) plays Professor John Keating. A former student at Welton Academy, he’s now returned as a teacher and hopes to impart the lessons he […]Read On »

TV Review: HOUSE – Season 7 – “Selfish”

Hugh Laurie in HOUSE - Season 7 | ©2010 Fox

Stars: Hugh Laurie, Lisa Edelstein, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Olivia Wilde, Peter Jacobson Writer: Eli Attie Director: Daniel Attias Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 27, 2010 Did we get our first real HOUSE episode of the season? Not to knock the season premiere, “Now What?” (which was good but hardly resembled a HOUSE episode), but “Selfish” showed us that Huddy and HOUSE can coexist and in fact make for some darn good television. To be honest, that was what was on the line this week: whether HOUSE can truly pull this off or if, […]Read On »

TV Review: HOUSE – Season 7 – “Now What?” – Season Premiere

Stars: Hugh Laurie, Lisa Edelstein, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Olivia Wilde, Peter Jacobson Writer: Doris Egan Director: Greg Yaitanes Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 20, 2010 Well, it was real. Huddy (House + Cuddy for you folks out there not in the know) is happening, and to be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about that as HOUSE enters its seventh season. I suppose it would have been utterly ridiculous to have House (Hugh Laurie) and Cuddy’s (Lisa Edelstein) encounter be another hallucination or a dream or any other DALLAS type ending. At […]Read On »
