In HAND OF GOD, which premiered its entire ten-episode first season on Amazon Prime September 4, Ron Perlman stars as Judge Pernell Harris. When Harris’ son PJ (played by Johnny Ferro) is declared brain-dead after a failed suicide attempt, Harris has a mental breakdown and becomes convinced that God is speaking to him directly and commanding him to exact vengeance. It’s open to interpretation whether we’re witnessing a supernatural event, a man’s descent into madness, or both, but there’s no question that Harris is dangerous. Alona Tal plays Harris’ daughter-in-law Jocelyn, a lawyer who has been raped, the incident that […]Read On »

Not that POKER NIGHT is a straight anthology; in fact, here the framing device is the main story, with a number of vignettes spicing it up and making good use of the supporting cast.

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas.

As for Jax’s mother Gemma Teller Morrow, played by Katey Sagal (who in real life is married to series creator Sutter), she at least begins the season in an uncommonly serene state of mind.

In ABC’s THE RIVER (which airs its Season 1 finale tonight), a mixed group of documentary filmmakers and other personnel voyage along the unknown byways of South America’s mighty Amazon in search of a missing naturalist. They find plenty of supernatural peril along the way. Of course, they wouldn’t get very far without an engineer, which is where Daniel Zacapa’s character Emilio Venezuela comes in. Zacapa in reality was born in Honduras and employs a Honduran accent as Emilio. It’s therefore a little startling to meet Zacapa and discover that his everyday accent is standard U.S. Zacapa is attending ABC’s […]Read On »
