The cast of SIBERIA | (c) 2013 NBC

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: July 8, 2013 SIBERIA continued to play the faux reality show game quite well in the second episode although it is clear in “A Question of Reality,” which is obviously a pun here, that this is a scripted series in case there were still doubters (which, I doubt – my own pun). The focus of the second episode was the fallout over the death of […]Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Rick Cleveland Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: July 1, 2013 “It means (long dramatic pause) … we’re all gonna die in here.”  – Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz) on UNDER THE DOME “The Fire” The thing that cracks me up most about Stephen King made-for-TV specials has always been the acting. Or lack of it. While UNDER THE DOME may be interesting from a pure storyline point-of-view, the acting and dialogue in the first two episodes is […]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: July 1, 2013 I am a self-confessed reality show junkie. I am also a fan of horror, science fiction and action films and television. So naturally, I was über excited about the whole idea of SIBERIA. The show is a blend of reality show backdrop with a twist that there is something sinister going on that is not part of the show. There is no […]Read On »

Toye Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 27, 2012 After a host of bad episodes, REVOLUTION finally got on track with its penultimate episode of the season, “Children of Men,” which saw the beginning of the explanation behind the Tower plotline that has been building up for quite some time. The biggest question coming from this episode is: What is on Level 12? While not all of the […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Paul Grellong Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 20, 2012 Three weeks ago, REVOLUTION delivered one of the best episodes of the season with an emotional and action-packed revealing episode that brought Miles (Billy Burke) and Monroe (David Lyons) back to their hometown. The last two episodes were back to the same villain of the week or survival story of the week progressing the show at a snail’s pace. This week’s episode, “Clue,” continued this downward […]Read On »

Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Salmon, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Manu Bennett Writer:  Drew Z. Greenberg & Wendy Mericle Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: May 8, 2013 ARROW is normally at its strongest when it operates in shades of grey, but “Darkness on the Edge of Town” gives us a black & white, good vs. evil battle between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman).  This is not necessarily a bad thing, though, because, while both men are hood-wearing vigilantes […]Read On »

Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Salmon, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Manu Bennett Writer:  Jake Coburn & Lana Cho Director: Michael Schultz Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: May 1, 2013 ARROW surprises a little this week by revealing the entire conspiracy that’s driven its narrative throughout its debut season.  With another two episodes remaining, I didn’t expect this big reveal until the season finale, but since what they were revealing was not particularly unexpected, I didn’t have a problem with the refusal to let it continue […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Home”

Zak Orth as Aaron in REVOLUTION "Home" | (c) 2013 Brownie Harris/NBC

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo Director: Jon Cassar Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 29, 2012 In one episode, REVOLUTION was able to bring some of the emotion that should be in this series back to the forefront in “Home.” One of the things that has been sadly missing in this show is any emotion as a result of the actions of the people in the cast. Every regular of this series has had something terrible happen to them […]Read On »

TV Review: VIKINGS – Season One – “All Change” – Season Finale

Rollo (Clive Standen) in VIKINGS "All Change" | (c) 2013 History/Jonathan Hession

Cast: Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Gabriel Byrne, Gustaf Skarsgard, Jessalyn Gilsig, George Blagden Writer: Michael Hirst Director: Ken Girotti Network: Airs on History, Sundays at 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 28, 2013 The season finale of VIKINGS was not your typical one, but for a show that has been anything but typical from the start that really shouldn’t surprise anyone. “All Change” was not a knockdown, drag out battle between warring factions of Scandinavia but was more of a stage setting for what was to come – which will surely be a knockdown, drag out battle between warring […]Read On »
