Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown Writer: David Fury Director: Jeffrey Hunt Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: December 21, 2012 As FRINGE concludes its last episode of 2012 before it heads into the final three episodes of the series in January, the show continues its up and down ride through the season long arc of the humans versus the Observers. It’s been a challenging season, and at times, a rather boring one too. Without the benefit of too many standalone episodes, the ongoing threat vacillates between ominous to non-existent. It’s hard […]Read On »

FRINGE - Gallery - Season 1-cast

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Human Kind”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer: Alison Schapker Director: Dennis Smith Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: December 7, 2012 I’ve wanted to like the final season of FRINGE. I think the idea of a future ruled by Observers and the Fringe team trying to take them down was always a a solid arc for the final stretch. Yet, the fifth season of FRINGE has been painfully slow and redundant. The idea that Walter (John Noble) has to find all these missing videotapes in order to remember what September […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Harold Perrineau gets dark on SONS OF ANARCHY

Harold Perrineau is no stranger to dark-souled characters, having played the seriously conflicted Michael Dawson on LOST and prison inmate Augustus Hill in OZ. However, Damon Pope, the Season Five villain in SONS OF ANARCHY (FX, Tuesdays at 10 PM), may be his darkest role yet. As series creator Kurt Sutter says, “I wanted an actor who … you would believe in a suit and tie standing in front of a city council meeting, at the same time he’s somebody that had the depth and the ability to turn dark and to do some of the heinous things that he […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Andrew W. Marlowe Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 29, 2012 After watching last week’s tease, I was seriously afraid I was going to have to slap the CASTLE producers for “Probable Cause,” this week’s episode. After how many years of jerking us around with the relationship between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett, I was so sure that when Castle got arrested for murder, they were going to have Beckett and him breaking up or something. Nope! […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Bullet That Saved the World”

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer:  Alison Schapker Director: David Straiton Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 28, 2012 Just when I thought FRINGE was going to get too repetitive with its “let’s find the videotape of the week” storyline as Walter (John Noble) tries to reconstruct the plan to destroy the Observers and save the world, “The Bullet That Saved The World” completely changes everything. A really solid episode that has a shocking moment toward the end that changes the fifth season of the series moving forward. […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Murder He Wrote”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Grae Director: Rob Brown Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 15, 2012 We’re still in light and fluffy mode on CASTLE, with “Murder He Wrote” not really involving any writing – that’s just what author and dilettante detective Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) told his NYPD buddies he was going to be doing on his weekend at his place in the Hamptons. The real reason he told Detectives Ryan (Seamus Driver) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) he was going to the Hamptons to […]Read On »

TV Review: FRINGE – Season 5 – “The Recordist”

Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Georgina Haig and John Noble in FRINGE - Season 5 - "The Recordist" | ©2012 Fox/Liane Hentscher

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Georgina Haig Writer: Graham Roland Director: Jeff T. Thomas Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: October 12, 2012 With the introduction of the idea that Walter (John Noble) has had many of his memories erased (some of which would allow him to remember how to stop the Observers because September told him the secret), FRINGE now begins what may be a very odd little subplot for a good duration of this 13-episode series finale. Essentially, Walter recorded the information on how to stop the Observers on […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Secret’s Safe With Me”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terence Paul Winter Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 8, 2012 One of the great things about CASTLE this season is now that the producers have resolved the big tease between author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), the show can now focus on the mystery part – and the mysteries have been getting better. In “Secret’s Safe With Me,” yeah, there’s a couple things you see coming, but the plot actually had some interesting twists. […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Cloudy with a Chance of Murder”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Beall Director: Kate Woods Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 1, 2012 For all those who have complained (with some reason) that their light-hearted whodunnit had been co-opted by the drama monsters the past few season, the old CASTLE is back with “Cloudy with a Chance of Murder.” But it’s even more fun now that author Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) are lovers. The only problem they’re having is trying to keep it quiet. See, Kate is […]Read On »
