Wonderland, the absurdist magical realm originally created by Lewis Carroll in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, has already been visited by the characters in ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME. This means that viewers of ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, the ONCE spin-off that premieres Thursday, October 10 at 8 PM, will have seen the place before, but the characters are all new. Alice (Sophie Lowe) is trapped in an England where no one believes she’s been to Wonderland – and she’s desperate to return so she can rescue her true love Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), who is the Genie of the Lamp, […]Read On »

DVD Review: THE RIVER – THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

THE RIVER - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON | ©2012 ABC Studios

Stars: Bruce Greenwood, Joe Anderson, Leslie Hope, Eloise Mumford, Paul Blackthorne, Thomas Kretschmann, Daniel Zacapa, Shaun Parkes, Paulina Gaitan, Jeff Galfer Distributor: Buena Vista Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 Release Date: May 22, 2012 ABC took a big chance on the found footage series THE RIVER. With only eight episodes, it was a perfect amount of time to create a mythology and tell a story without too much filler. Of course, the format didn’t hook audiences, but I suspect that had more to do with the need to see the whole series in one big eight-hour chunk. Now, THE […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Daniel Zacapa on THE RIVER and the Season 1 Finale

Daniel Zacapa in THE RIVER - Season 1 | ©2012 ABC/Bob D'Amico

In ABC’s THE RIVER (which airs its Season 1 finale tonight), a mixed group of documentary filmmakers and other personnel voyage along the unknown byways of South America’s mighty Amazon in search of a missing naturalist. They find plenty of supernatural peril along the way. Of course, they wouldn’t get very far without an engineer, which is where Daniel Zacapa’s character Emilio Venezuela comes in. Zacapa in reality was born in Honduras and employs a Honduran accent as Emilio. It’s therefore a little startling to meet Zacapa and discover that his everyday accent is standard U.S. Zacapa is attending ABC’s […]Read On »

At the end of “Doctor […]Read On »

Stars: Bruce Greenwood, Joe Anderson, Leslie Hope, Eloise Mumford, Paul Blackthorne, Thomas Kretschmann, Daniel Zacapa, Shaun Parkes, Paulina Gaitan, Scott Michael Foster, Katie Featherston Writer: Michael Green Director: Michelle MacLaren Network: ABC, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Broadcast: March 7, 2012 It’s a complete shame what’s happened with THE RIVER. What started off as a promising and groundbreaking series as de-volved into an incredibly frustrating exercise in style over substance. Each week, there’s a promise of something big and major and each week, it ends up being a disappointment. Finally, a big mythology play happens with “Doctor Emmet Cole”. We […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: THE RIVER star Paulina Gaitan goes bi-lingual

Paulina Gaitan in THE RIVER - Season 1 | ©2012 ABC/Bob D'Amico

Paulina Gaitan – pronounced GUY-tahn – was only nineteen years old when she filmed her role as the psychically attuned Jahel Valenzuela, daughter of the ship’s mechanic, in the ABC series THE RIVER, which airs Tuesdays at 9 PM. Although by now everyone involved in the expedition to find missing naturalist Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) has a pretty good idea that deadly supernatural forces are involved, Jahel is the only one with real insight into the dangerous ways in which local mythology and reality come together. The now-twenty-year-old Gaitan, a native of Mexico City, has starred in a number of […]Read On »

In ABC’s THE RIVER, Tuesdays at 9 PM, a documentary crew sails along the Amazon River, seeking traces of missing naturalist Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) and finding a few traces – along with a whole lot of supernatural menace. The series is co-created by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY auteur Oren Peli and Michael R. Perry. While most of the characters have family or work ties to the missing Emmet, Eloise Mumford’s character Lena Landry is there seeking her own father, along with a sense of purpose. There was closure this past week to that part of her arc with the “Peaches” episode […]Read On »
