Stars: Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani, James Purefoy Writer: Chris Chibnall Director: Ciaran Donnelly Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 1st, 2010 I’m still thoroughly enjoying one of the more original series on TV, with the second episode of CAMELOT entitled “The Sword and the Crown.” This series moves incredibly fast, in fact a lot faster than most period television. I don’t know if it’s due to budget or number of episodes ordered, but this show is MOVING. Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) just found out in the pilot that he was the only make […]Read On »

SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA has ended a trifle happier than one would guess from the previous season of BLOOD AND SAND. True the six episode series was bookended with death, but that doesn’t mean the story within didn’t have a bit of a happy ending. Steven S. DeKnight, series creator and executive producer,  has had a blast writing within the world of SPARTACUS and was more than happy to  re-visit favorite characters and the Ludus of Batiatus once more. ASSIGNMENT X got to chat this week with DeKnight now that the second season has ended and we picked his […]Read On »

They range in status from movies with Sean Connery to TV miniseries starring Julianna Margulies, to cartoons by Walt Disney, yet each one has had something new to give to the legend, whether it is the story told from a new point of view, or one […]Read On »

Stars: Lucy Lawless, John Hannah, Peter Mensah, Dustin Clare, Jaime Murray Writer: Brent Fletcher, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: John Fawcett Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 18th, 2010 This is the next to last episode of SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA, and it is appropriately named “Reckoning”. Everything has been building towards this episode where it really hits the fan (appropriate since this is almost the end of the series). I called it a few episodes ago, that Titus (Jeffrey Thomas) coming back to the House of Batiatus to act as the head of the household, […]Read On »

SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA only has two episodes to go, but fans of the series can rejoice that season two of the first series, is heading back into production. One of the main characters, who has the good fortune to not only survive the first season, be part of the prequel series, and return for the second season is Doctore played by accomplished actor Peter Mensah. Mensah’s gleaming smile and charm are something that he doesn’t get to use in abundance on the series, but with the prequel he has gotten to play the softer side of his character. […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: VAMPIRE CIRCUS Blu-ray/DVD combo

VAMPIRE CIRCUS - Blu-ray | ©2011 Synapse Films

Cast: Adrienne Corri, Laurence Payne, Thorley Walters, John Moulder-Brown, Lynne Frederick, Anthony Corlan, David Prowse Writer: Judson Kinberg Director: Robert Young Distributor: Synapse Films Suggested Retail Price: $29.95 It’s a shame that British production company Hammer Films hasn’t received its due with more special re-releases on Blu-ray and DVD. Movies have certainly come out (Anchor Bay did a nice job in the early days of DVD), but rarely does Hammer get the deluxe treatment it deserves. Thankfully, the recent Blu-ray/DVD combo of VAMPIRE CIRCUS remedies some of that as Synapse Films takes this classic circus horror film and delivers an […]Read On »

DeKnight Director: Brendan Maher Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 11th, 2010 So last episode of SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA, Titus (Jeffrey Thomas) came back to the House of Batiatus to act as the head of the household. This not only ruffled the feathers of Batiatus (John Hannah) and Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) but it effectively crapped all over what they had been trying to accomplish to elevate their house. Lucretia and Gaia (Jamie Murray) had […]Read On »
