In ABC’s RESURRECTION, which is running its eight-episode first season Sundays at 9 PM, a small Missouri town experiences an influx of returnees – from the dead. These people aren’t zombies, but rather come back apparently exactly as they were, mentally and physically, with no memory of where they’ve been in the interim. The first returnee is Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez), an eight-year-old boy who wakes up in rural China. Getting him home brings U.S. agent J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps) into the picture. Bellamy is extremely startled to find that Jacob’s parents, Lucille (Frances Fisher) and Henry (Kurtwood Smith), […]Read On »

HBO’s TRUE DETECTIVE, Sundays at 9 PM, was created by Nic Pizzolatto to be a standalone eight-hour story.

Season 1 gives us Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as, respectively,  Martin Hart and Rust Cohle, two very different detectives in rural Louisiana who try to find a ritualistic serial killer back in 1995 and then revisit the case seventeen years later. Pizzolatto, who originally hails from Louisiana, is an award-winning novelist and short story writer. His scriptwriting experience prior to […]Read On »

As the first season of AMC’s THE KILLING, adapted from the Danish series FORBRYDELSEN by executive producer Veena Sud, was drawing to a close, it seemed more and more clear that Billy Campbell’s character, mayoral candidate Darren Richmond, was guilty of murdering Rosie Larsen.

This lack of closure angered a number of viewers, who felt they had been led to believe the killer would be […]Read On »
