Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writers: Danielle Dispaltro from a story by J.H. Wyman, Jeff Pinkner and Akiva Goldsman Director: Charles Beeson Network: Fox, airs Fridays Original Telecast: March 18, 2011 “Stowaway” was certainly a bi-polar episode of FRINGE. On one hand we had the invasion of William Bell into the body of Olivia (Anna Torv), where we had epic reactions from Peter (Joshua Jackson), who of course is in love with her and in a relationship, and a number of buddy comedy moments with Walter (John Noble). On the other hand, we had […]Read On »

Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Director: Brad Anderson Writer: Josh Singer, Graham Roland Network: Fox, Airs on Friday Original Telecast: March 11, 2011 I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it many times again, no other show delivers the “WTF” moments like FRINGE does. The opening scene where some dude literally floats on air for no apparent reason was just one of many moments in “Os.” This was definitely the type of episode of FRINGE that we haven’t seen in quite a while on the show – just brutal with ample amounts […]Read On »

It turns out that evil reptilian aliens who invade Earth are so unpredictable that they can surprise even the actors who play them. At least, Morena Baccarin says, this is the case with Anna, the ruthless Visitor leader she portrays on V, which has its second season finale tonight on ABC at 9. This season, Brazilian-born Baccarin (a heroine to fans of FIREFLY and SERENITY for portraying Inara Serra as well as a veteran of STARGATE SG-1 as the dangerous Adria) killed a fellow visitor with her tail and ingested a rodent, not to mention dealing with her mother Diana, […]Read On »

CD Review: SOLARIS soundtrack

SOLARIS soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Ever since composer Cliff Martinez broke the sound barrier of “indie” scoring with the similarly eccentric Steven Soderbergh on SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE, their collaborations on such films as KING OF THE HILL, KAFKA, TRAFFIC and the upcoming CONTAGION have resulted in near-hallucinatory atmospheres of melody, rhythms so fragile that they seemed in danger of breaking with a listen. That’s why there’s no better example of their hypnotic partnership than the crystalline vibe of Soderbergh’s 2002 remake of SOLARIS, a score wherein Martinez also brought in the larger sound of a 90-piece Hollywood orchestra, while using it in similarly offbeat […]Read On »
