Stars: Texas Battle, Bryan Callen, Bryce Johnson, Caity Lotz, Tania Raymonde, Charlie Sanders Writers: Matt Lawton based on DEATH VALLEY conceived by Spider One, developed by Eric Weinberg and created by Curtis Gwinn Director: Drew Daywalt Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2011 I think DEATH VALLEY has finally found itself. It’s taken a couple of weeks, but “Zombie Fights” is a step in the right direction. It’s still not laugh out loud funny, but the mixture of funny, serious and super-sized gore is starting to gel. It’s also revealing that this first season has more of […]Read On »

After the first two episodes that were wildly uneven, Episode Three dubbed “Blood Vessels” finds the series almost finding the right balance between the horror and the comedy elements of the series. It even, potentially has a story happening that sort […]Read On »

One of the biggest time bomb revelations over the last couple of days, was the news that THE WALKING DEAD executive producer Frank Darabont (and the person instrumental to bringing it to the small screen on AMC) had abruptly left the series in the middle of Season 2. This, of course, was after he appeared at Comic-Con over the weekend promoting the show as if nothing was amiss. At today’s TCA Summer session with AMC, naturally questions turned to his exit and the details behind it. Joel Stillerman, AMC’s Senior Vice President of Original Programming, Production, and Digital Content didn’t […]Read On »

The world of New York City is not what it seems in the Comedy Central animated series UGLY AMERICANS (which has its second season premiere tonight). In the hilariously bizarre series (which features animation in the EC Comics vein), Mark Lilly is our hero – a social worker for the Department of Integration who has to deal with zombies, demons and wizards on a regular basis. The key to UGLY AMERICANS success is it plays everything very seriously, deriving the comedy out of the outlandish situations surrounding our hero. Creator Devin Clark spoke with ASSIGNMENT X this week in an […]Read On »

Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Director: Joe Chappelle Writers: Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman, Avika Goldman Network: Fox, airs Fridays Original Telecast: April 15, 2011 This was certainly an interesting episode of FRINGE. A tripping Peter (Joshua Jackson), a tripping Broyles (Lance Reddick), cartoons, the Twin Towers, a dead fat guy doing a dance in a tub of ice, zombies, animated birds flying and bubbles were just some of the highlights. Yeah, the comedy was fast and furious, but it did the job in progressing the whole William Bell trapped in Olivia’s (Anna Torv) body. […]Read On »
