Cast: Clark Gregg, Colbie Smulders, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Ron Glass, J. August Richards Writer: Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen Director: Joss Whedon Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 24, 2013 So THE AVENGERS happened. Obviously, that’s the understatement of the century considering it stands as one of the highest grossing movies of all time and launched a whole new generations to the characters that so many of us have already known and loved for many years. Now comes MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, a television sequel to […]Read On »

Stars: George Segal, Jeff Garlin, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia Writers: Adam F. Goldberg Director: Seth Gordon Network: ABC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 24, 2013 There’s a lot to be said about the 1980s, especially if you grew up in them. The material is ripe for the picking in the appropriate hands, in this case those hands would be that of Adam Goldberg whose THE GOLDBERGS is loosely based on his own life growing up in during that decade. The premise is simplistic in its rarest form. A family of five dealing with everything a […]Read On »

TV Review: TROPHY WIFE – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Series Premiere

Stars: Malin Akerman, Bradley Whitford, Michaela Watkins, Natalie Morales, Ryan Lee, Bailee Madison, Albert Tsai, Marcia Gay Harden Writers: Sarah Haskins & Emily Halpern Director: Jason Moore Network: ABC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 24, 2013 Face it, TROPHY WIFE is a terrible concept for a TV series. A hot young blonde named Kate (Malin Akerman) falls for an older man Pete (Bradley Whitford) and marries him. A year later, she’s not part of an integrated family that involves his two ex-wives and his brood of three kids. Now the hot blonde has to be mommy and peacekeeper. Ugh! […]Read On »

TV Review: THE BLACKLIST – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Series Premiere

Cast: James Spader, Megan Boone, Ryan Eggold, Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Parminder Nagra Writer: Jon Bokencamp Director: Joe Carnahan Network: Airs on NBC, Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 23, 2013 THE BLACKLIST’s premiere episode was surprisingly brutal. That’s a refreshing comment given all the milquetoast police dramas and detective shows that have come and gone over the years. There is a lot of meat here. The premise alone is wildly entertaining – one of the world’s most sought after criminals gives himself up in order to aid the FBI in capturing other high value targets that he has […]Read On »

TV Review: HOSTAGES – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Series Premiere

Stars: Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott, Tate Donovan, Billy Brown, Sandrine Holt, Rhys Coiro, Quinn Shephard, Mateus Ward, James Naughton Writers: Alon Aranya & Jeffrey Nachmanoff, original idea by Omri Givon Director: Jeffrey Nachmanoff Network: CBS, Mondays @ 10 PM Original Airdate: September 23, 2013 It’s not right to compare every serialized TV thriller series to 24, but HOSTAGES makes such an analogy tempting, particularly to the previous series’ first season. There is the central story element, with a doctor being blackmailed by a rogue FBI agent, there’s the pacing, there are the twists. There are also conflicted people with guns […]Read On »

TV Review: MOM – Season 1 – “Pilot” – Series Premiere

Stars: Anna Farris, Allison Janney, Nate Corddry, Matt Jones, Sadie Calvano, Spencer Daniels, French Stewart Writers: Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, Gemma Baker Director: Pamela Fryman Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 23, 2013 Painfully unfunny and at times uncomfortable to watch, MOM is one of the most depressing half hour comedies debuting this fall. It comes with a rich pedigree – co-creator Chuck Lorre is the mastermind behind TWO AND A HALF MEN and current mega-hit THE BIG BANG THEORY, great comedienne Anna Farris toplines her first regular TV gig and Allison Janney is excellent as her comedic […]Read On »

TV Review: UNDER THE DOME – Season 1 – “Curtains” – Season Finale

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Gold Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 Considering UNDER THE DOME already got renewed by CBS for presumably a return in the summer of 2014, the producers apparently thought they could go out with a defined whimper instead of anything resembling a proper cliffhanger season finale. The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show […]Read On »

Cast: Joyce Giraud, Johnny Wactor, Neeko Skervin, Natalie Scheetz, Sam Dobbins, Esther Anderson, Anne-Marie Mueschke, Jonathon Buckley, Victoria Emilie Hill Writer: Matthew Arnold Director: Matthew Arnold Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 SIBERIA went out with a lot happening in its Season 1 finale “Into the Oven” – let’s be honest, it’s the series finale of the NBC summer series as it will be highly doubtful this promising show will return given the horrific ratings. But I give NBC credit for not switching its time slot or just burying the rest of the episodes […]Read On »

At today’s CBS Summer TCA press tour, CBS Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves announced that the hit Stephen King summer series UNDER THE DOME will return again next summer. “It’s official, and Stephen King will be writing the first episode of that 13-episode arc,” says Moonves. “We’re really proud of  what UNDER THE DOME has done. It sort of changed the face of summer television. The highest premiere of a drama, since, I think, 1992. It’s the way television should be. It’s the way television can be. Obviously it’s a very different model.” With summer programming being […]Read On »
