Ewing has proven itself to be bittersweet. Yes, we lost the most infamous villain in television forever but, boy did it open up a bevy of story lines for DALLAS. Most noticeably it left a gaping hole where he once stood. Wasting no time at all,  “Prey” features Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) and Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi) stepping up their devilish plots to take the […]Read On »

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: Mar. 11, 2013 Whoa … it was almost impossible to get through the episode of J.R.’s funeral without having a tear shed, especially knowing we are seeing a cast in mourning for the real man, Larry Hagman. Tonight’s DALLAS was spot on dramatic, revelatory and fitting for the man who put Texas on the map over 30 years ago. The opening gave us Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), Bobby (Patrick Duffy), John […]Read On »

Goodman Director: Gwyneth Horder Payton Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 3, 2013 It’s almost always fun to get a charcter’s back story, and on ONCE UPON A TIME, those back stories have made for some great set-ups. But in “The Queen is Dead,” the story of Snow and her mother’s death, there’s just a meanness and a progressing darkness to the whole proceeding that doesn’t quite fit the world of the show as we know it. You end the episode […]Read On »

It’s getting good again on DALLAS.

Meanwhile, John Ross (Josh Henderson) pushes Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) to take back her shares in […]Read On »

Perry & Joe Fazzio Director: Stephen Schwartz Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013 At last, at last, we get to find out who died when the Amanda went down, as we saw in the season premiere of REVENGE. And, in fact, “Sacrifice” starts as it did at the beginning of the season, with the divers and the hand with the wedding band. Now, I have been writing all season that I thought it would be Aidan (Barry Sloane). It made sense, since Aidan clearly was […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Manhattan”

Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle and Jared Gilmore in ONCE UPON A TIME - Season 2 - "Manhattan" | ©2013 ABC/David Gray

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz Director: Dean White Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013  It’s not like we didn’t see this one coming from the season premiere. So it turns out that Gold’s (Robert Carlyle) son Baelfire is Neil (Michael Raymond-Jones), aka Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) father. And you have to give writers Kitsis and Horowitz a lot of credit for not stretching this one out unnecessarily. But more fun, in the Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold back story, the writers play off the whole seeing the future thing Ancient […]Read On »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: John Whelpley Director: Millicent Shelton Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: Feb. 18th,  2013 The fifth episode of DALLAS, season 2, plays out with not much going on, at least for a drama like DALLAS, anyway. Expectations are high with this fast-paced, high-octane show, but this week’s installment lacks the gusto from previous weeks. C’mon guys kick it up a notch before the audience goes south. Ala THE OUTSIDERS – Do it for Larry! In a quick turn around Ann (Brenda […]Read On »

Ewing (Larry Hagman). Meanwhile, John Ross (Josh Henderson) lets his emotions for Pamela Barnes get the best of him and he goes […]Read On »

There’s a lot going on and stories are starting to come together. Oh, and Jorge Garcia is back as the Giant – who turns out to be called “Tiny” because compared to his brothers he is. So let’s just start at the beginning and slug our way through. So in Storybrooke, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared Gilmore) are packing to […]Read On »
