Where some other hugely popular sci-fi series are basically stuck in time and space, DOCTOR WHO is blessed by its ability to jump all over the two in an English phone booth. That’s been a particular mitzvah to composer Murray Gold since he jumped aboard the TARDIS’ sassy reboot so many series ago. Now the CD hand strikes 5 with a two-disc compilation that continues to show off WHO scoring as the Gold standard when it comes to some of the most delightfully inventive TV scoring in any one’s universe, music that mostly packs a rambunctious sense of joy to […]Read On »

Wyman this morning, they admitted that Season 4 of the series will likely remain on Friday nights. “Fox has not officially told us we’re on Friday,” says Pinkner. “We’re assuming we’re on Friday and our pick-up implies they’re happy with us there.

While speaking with FRINGE executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman this morning, they revealed a tiny bit about what the Season 3 finale plans will be. “We have sort of approached each end of season to be the end of story for year and also open up the door and imply and be first taste of what next seasons story telling would be,” says Wyman. “We believe this season finale does that. Hopefully it will be wholly unexpected and recontexualize the story of Season 3 in a way and be mind-blowing.” Wyman does confirm an important character will die, […]Read On »
Could FRINGE be pulling a LOST and charting its end game now? While speaking with FRINGE executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman this morning, they won’t be going the LOST route, but they do have plans for where this is all heading. “I think we have an ending in mind,” says Wyman. “And we’ve said this before. We have this file folder. There are chapters we can tell to round out that ending and we can drop in to get to that ending that aren’t required for the storytelling to work and be satisfying. One of the advantages to […]Read On »

After the Fox series FRINGE was moved to Friday nights earlier this season, it looked as if another season of the strange sci-fi series was a remote possibility at best. However, good news fans – Fox has given the series a fourth season renewal and Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this announcement. “When we moved the show to Fridays, we asked the fans to follow and they did. We’re thrilled to bring it back for another full season and keep it part of the FOX family,” says Reilly in today’s press release. For Abrams, he’s […]Read On »
Jenny Lewis (Lucy Brown) makes a welcome but mostly squandered return appearance as this latest series of PRIMEVAL reaches its penultimate episode. Jenny’s getting married, and when her wedding planner is satisfyingly killed by a Hyaenodon in a plastic-shrouded basement that makes one wonder when the parallel universe Cybermen are going to show up, the ARC team swing into action to help their old friend. Meanwhile, Matt (Ciaran McMenamin) is still struggling with Gideon’s (Anton Lesser) warnings about getting too close to Emily (Ruth Bradley) or anyone else while trying to track down Ethan (Jonathan Byrne). The apocalypse is just around the corner, and one person may be responsible…
It’s no surprise to CHUCK fans that “Vs. The Push Mix” would have served as some sort of series finale if the show didn’t get picked up for its back nine episodes for Season Four.
Of course, the show did get its full season pick-up, so now “Vs. The Push Mix” serves as an excellent half season finale – wrapping up tons of subplots and setting the stage for the second part of this season which looks like it might be about, “we need a Big Bad.”
A fluctuating anomaly reading draws the special attention of Philip (Alexander Siddig) and leads to the team investigating the evocatively named Witchfield Cove in Episode Five of PRIMEVAL, where the locals have a legend about a giant worm; where’s Kyle MacLachlan when you need him. There are also some shady goings-on around town, and while Connor (Andrew-Lee Potts) and Abby (Hannah Spearritt) check into everything, Matt (Ciaran McMenamin) is forced to chase after an abducted Emily (Ruth Bradley). Connor also has an offer he can’t refuse from Philip about joining a secret project at Philip’s lab, Prospero…but can he refuse it after all if it means leaving ARC field work behind?
One of the things that has made CHUCK such a great series throughout its four season run, is the quality of guest actors that have popped up for one-shots and multi-arcs.
From Chevy Chase to Brandon Routh, CHUCK is a show that gives people a chance to show a different side within a quirky TV show that feels like an expansive action movie every week.
