Review: David Duchovny chases Charles Manson in NBC's underwhelming 'Aquarius'

16 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In "Aquarius," David Duchovny plays an La cop in 1967 with old-school hair and old-school values. Asked to find a teenage girl who has vanished into the city's hippie underbelly, he reluctantly teams with a shaggy-haired young cop with crazy new ideas about civil liberties and equality. Very quickly, then, the series sets itself up as an ideological  clash between the veteran and the rookie, even as they collaborate to find the girl and potentially put a charge on the charismatic guy named Charles Manson who has her under his sway. The generation gap on the show is pretty stock stuff, unfortunately. Far more interesting, if not creatively successful, is the way that "Aquarius" itself is caught between multiple generations of television at once, attempting to function simultaneously as a broadcast network drama, an edgier cable-style show, and something designed to be binged like it was being released by Netflix or Amazon. »

'Aquarius' Official Cast and Premiere Photos

16 hours ago | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Official photos of the cast and premiere of NBC's new series, Aquarius premiering on Thursday, May 28 at 9pm on NBC.

Synopsis: Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, Californication, The X-Files), a decorated World War II vet and homicide detective, barely recognizes the city he's now policing. Long hair, cheap drugs, rising crime, protests, free love, police brutality, Black Power and the Vietnam War are radically remaking the world he and the Greatest Generation saved from fascism 20 years ago.

So when Emma Karn (Emma Dumont, Salvation, Bunheads), the 16-year-old daughter of an old girlfriend, goes missing in a sea of hippies and Hodiak agrees to find her, he faces only hostility, distrust and silence. He enlists the help of Brian Shafe (Grey Damon, True Blood, Friday Night Lights) - a young, idealistic undercover vice cop who's been allowed to grow his hair out - to infiltrate this new counterculture and find her.

Orange Is The New Black’s Jenji Kohan Comments on Binge-Watching Backlash

17 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Netflix introduced its streaming platform, things began to change. No longer did viewers need to wait for cable marathons or DVD boxsets to watch copious amounts of TV all at once. Netflix was making entire seasons, and sometimes entire series, available instantly. Even more revolutionary, their original series followed suit, with Netflix posting all 13 episodes of House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, and others in one fell swoop. This also created a new term for an old idea: binge-watching. According to a recent story by THR, that’s defined as watching 3 or more hours of a show in one sitting. And while for a long time now this has been heralded as the new paradigm for TV viewing (with even NBC getting into the game, as it will be releasing all 13 new episodes of its David Duchovny series Aquarius at once), there’s a new blacklash brewing »

David Duchovny on His The X-Files Rituals and Why Aquarius Is Prime for Binging

19 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

David Duchovny is having a moment, for lack of a better term. The Golden Globe-winning star is returning to TV with Aquarius, NBC's splashy new drama set in the sensational 1960s, his first album, Hell or Highwater, dropped this May and his first book, Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale, came out this past February. Oh, he's also returning to the role that made him a household name, suiting up once again as Fox Mulder in The X-Files for six episodes on Fox this coming January. Yeah, a moment is kind of an understatement. So is he crazed? "Oddly enough, not really," he told E! News at the NBC Upfront. "These things, I did a while ago." Just don't ask the Emmy nominee to pick between singing, »

'Aquarius': TV Review

20 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The new NBC miniseries Aquarius has one thing going for it in star David Duchovny, who is pretty much watchable in anything. But in Aquarius, a patchwork pastiche of 1960s clichés that tracks the killings of Charles Manson through a hippy-trippy Los Angeles, you find yourself really wishing you were watching Duchovny in The X-Files instead. Nor does it help that in spite of kicking a lot of ass, playing a little guitar and having a punching bag at his house, he’s actually the prototypical square cop. Who wants Mulder (or Duchovny) to be the establishment? But Duchovny is Duchovny

Charles Manson's sordid legacy endures thanks to pop culture's odd fascination

20 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

NBC’s new crime drama Aquarius is the latest addition to the cult leader’s cultural subgenre. Lewis Parker is partial toward classic Manson Family jams

A few summers ago, my friend Saul and I formed a covers band with several of our friends that would sing Manson Family songs onstage a couple of times. The first time we did it, we unwittingly joined the cottage industry of people who imitate or portray the love and terror cult. Even though Manson has appeared as a character in everything from B-movie exploitation films – there’s a whole Manson-inspired subgenre – to the works of National Book Award winners, via an opera, a German musical and a novelization of Columbo, I’m often amazed at the running for best Manson Family impersonators – not only how insurmountable the Fat White Manson Family’s lead appears to be, but how the competition can be so weak. »

David Duchovny Open To More X-Files, Cried When He Read New Script

27 May 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Many fans of Fox’s The X-Files were thrilled beyond measure when it was revealed that the network was reviving the beloved sci-fi mystery drama for a six-episode limited series, and star David Duchovny tells Entertainment Weekly that he’s also pretty over the moon about the show’s unexpected resurrection – so much so that he actually broke down in tears when he started reading the first new script (which he assures fans is “fantastic”).

“I got the first script this morning,” the actor said to the magazine:

“I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took »

Duchovny On More "X-Files," "Twin Peaks"

27 May 2015 6:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The upcoming "The X-Files" revival is just six episodes, but those involved are hoping that this will be just the start.

Fox Mulder himself, actor David Duchovny, has been out doing promotion for the release of NBC's "Aquarius" and has discussed his pending return to the supernatural franchise with EW saying that he hopes there'll be more:

"I would be open to doing another cycle. I don't know that I could do a twenty-episode version of this show at this point in my life, and I don't know that Gillian could. But I think everybody is open ended on what happens after this. Certainly, we didn't bring it back with the idea of ending it."

He also says he's only just seen the first script for the revival:

"I got the first script this morning. I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. »

David Duchovny on an Nc-17 'Aquarius' Cut and Why Mulder is a 'Very Bad Cop' on 'The X-Files'

27 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With "Aquarius," NBC is doing two things never done before on broadcast TV: releasing an entire season of television simultaneously and making David Duchovny play a real cop. Much has been made about the Peacock's decision to distribute the full first season of John McNamara's period cop drama the day after its traditional broadcast debut, but some may be surprised to hear Duchovny doesn't think of his past characters as cops. Yes, even that character.

The X-Files: “I started crying reading the first page,” says David Duchovny

27 May 2015 12:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Duchovny has been talking about scripts, and it sounds like The X-Files event series revival could be an emotional one...

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are both returning for The X-Files event series next year. Mitch Pileggi, who played their boss Walter Skinner, is reprising his role too. All going to plan, the first new episode will premiere on Sunday the 24th of January 2016 on Fox.

What will the episodes be about? Well, we don’t know yet, but we’re promised that "the world has only gotten that much stranger,” and that it’s “a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Okay, well what do the cast think of the scripts in vague spoiler-free terms? A-ha! Well, we have an answer for you on that. David Duchovny said this to Entertainment Weekly:

Aquarius: David Duchovny, Cast Talk 'Tragic' Charles Manson Drama

26 May 2015 2:32 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Google “Manson Family murders,” and — actually, on second thought, don’t.

Not because you’ll find horrifically gory photos, or because you’ll be reminded of one of the most terrible home invasions/murders in American history — though both of those are true.

The main reason the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and seven others, perpetrated by Charles Manson and a gang of devoted followers, will mess with you is because the crimes made no sense whatsoever, Aquarius star Grey Damon says.

David Duchovny Says New 'X-Files' Is 'Fantastic,' Wants More Episodes

26 May 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"X-Files" fans are no doubt beside themselves with glee over the upcoming revival of the beloved Fox sci-fi series, and that includes the show's star, David Duchovny.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor revealed that he was so emotional over resurrecting Mulder, Scully, and co. that he shed a few tears when he first read the new script.

"It was just so strange to see the names on the page," Duchovny told EW. " ... It was just like, I'd been talking about this for a long time. We'd been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. ... Now it's the fun part. Now we actually get to do it."

As for what that script entailed, Duchovny wasn't biting -- "I can tell you absolutely nothing-and it's fantastic," the actor said -- »

TV Review: ‘Aquarius’

26 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Using the Manson Family two years before the Tate-labianca murders as a portal into 1960s counterculture, “Aquarius” is actually pretty groovy — a bit like a poor man’s “La Confidential” in its revisionist look at the Lapd in a tumultuous earlier time. That makes NBC’s handling of this David Duchovny vehicle puzzling: In making all the episodes available online after its premier, it’s either an interesting experiment, charitably speaking, or an unceremonious dumping of a project whose prospects are, admittedly, uncertain. While the dawning of “Aquarius” is hardly revolutionary, the show does kick off summer with a provocative, cable-like gamble.

Duchovny plays Sam Hodiak, a World War II vet and Lapd homicide detective, asked by a former girlfriend (Michaela McManus) to help find her missing 16-year-old daughter, Emma (Emma Dumont). The girl, it turns out, has been taken by, and soon falls under the spell of, Charles Manson »

Former Bunhead Emma Dumont Talks Coming of Age in NBC's Aquarius

25 May 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The very first shot of NBC’s ’60s drama Aquarius, which premieres Thursday (9/8c), is of Emma Dumont‘s innocent face. When you see it, memorize it — because when her character comes into serial killer Charles Manson’s orbit a few scenes later, that innocence is gone forever.

“Everything that happens to her is so new and shocking and intense,” Dumont says of her alter ego, who also happens to be named Emma. The similarities end there. “She is very different from any role I’ve played before, in that she’s a lot younger than I am, and she »

Twin Peaks, Ep. 2.11: “Masked Ball”: Off the board, off the wall

22 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Twin Peaks, Season 2, Episode 11, “Masked Ball”

Written by Duwayne Dunham

Directed by Barry Pullman

Aired December 15, 1990 on ABC

“There is also a legend of a place called the Black Lodge, the shadow self of the White Lodge. Legend says that every spirit must pass through there on the way to perfection. There, you will meet your own shadow self. My people call it the Dweller on the Threshold. But it is said, if you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.” - Deputy Hawk

The long-awaited revival of Twin Peaks returned from its own horrific limbo in the Black Lodge earlier this month, when David Lynch announced on Twitter that he’d worked out a deal with Showtime to honor his original commitment to direct the third season—only six weeks after he’d walked away from the project in a similarly public fashion. »
