ABC’s Forever Cranks Up The Heat With ‘Skinny Dipper’ – Preview

9 December 2014 8:58 AM, PST | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As you’ll see in the preview clip below, there aren’t a lot of angles Henry can hope to twist around the truth when he’s caught holding a murder weapon in his own basement. Once he decides there’s no avoiding the truth, or at least some truth, it’s hard to figure out how he’s going to put a good spin on the fact that the murder weapon is his. And, that’s just a small piece of what’s in store on the next episode of Forever, “Skinny Dipper,” airing December 9th.

Easily one of the best new shows of the season, what Forever has done best, in my opinion, is balance the long arc of the show. We may now be in an era which demands that no show can simply be a procedural and run on episodic content, but this one has managed »

'Forever' First Look: Ioan Gruffudd Strips Down!

5 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Forever is showing some skin.

ETonline exclusively debuts two first-look images from next week’s episode, aptly titled “Skinny Dipper,” which find handsome star Ioan Gruffudd, as the immortal NYPD forensic expert Henry Morgan, getting down to his “skivvies” – and it looks like he prefers boxers over briefs.

Pics: TV Villains Who Wouldn't Stay Dead


It’s not all for show though, as Henry takes matters into his own hands after two innocents fall victim to “Adam,” his secret stalker. And of course, Judd Hirsch’s Abe – Henry’s best friend and adopted son – is roped in to the mess.

If anything, the photos raise questions: What exactly were Henry and Abe about to do? Why is Abe carrying a flashlight?

The episode, set to air Dec. 9, is a big one as Henry finally tracks down the true identity of his stalker, who has been menacing him since the start of the series.

Forever episode 10 review: The Man In The Killer Suit

3 December 2014 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's a case of mistake identity in this week's episode of Forever... but then isn't there always?

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 The Man in the Killer Suit

The latest Forever story suits up to prove the pen is mightier than the sword.

It’s always a curious thing when crime shows cover identity fraud, because by definition everyone involved in the performing side of a TV show is doing exactly that. That’s the subject this week, when Henry is called to unravel the untimely death of an English noble, only to discover he’s neither of those things.

There’s a repeating narrative thread from the outset about how a man’s suit can present him in a specific way, selling an idea, and it’s woven right through the story. There is also an early parallel drawn between the fraudster and Henry, who is hiding his true identity »

33 Things on TV to Be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

27 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At this time of year, it's good to be reminded that contemporary TV offers such a cornucopia of riches. This past year, in particular, has offered plenty to give thanks for -- in terms of both what's on the air and what is not. Among the things I'm thankful for:

That "The Flash" is actually good.

That recent, pricelessly funny Billy Bob Thornton guest spot as a lovelorn urologist-to-the-stars on "The Big Bang Theory."

That I don't work at the "Today" show.

That David E. Kelley is writing a TV show for Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman to star in.

That this is the last season for "Two and a Half Men."

That "Seinfeld" reruns still hold up pretty well.

That Casper Kelly made '80s sitcom parody "Too Many Cooks." Whether or not you like the finished product -- and it's often pretty disgusting -- I'm glad someone had the impulse to make it. »

Forever Season 1 Episode 9 Review: “6 A.M.”

19 November 2014 5:23 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Forever, now in the 9th installment of its recently ordered full season, took a jazzy step forward this week. Our heroes investigated the murder of an amateur jazz musician, the son of a better jazz musician. As a musician myself, I found the musical premise particularly interesting. I grew up playing the saxophone in the high school and college jazz bands. So of course, I recognized a crucial piece of evidence as a saxophone reed. I will always have a soft spot for jazz music, and it was prevalent both in the background and the foreground of the episode. Let’s just say, I didn’t hate it. I’ve been complaining for 9 weeks that they haven’t used Judd Hirsch and Joel David Moore enough. I’m thinking that the showrunners are starting to hear my complaints. I say starting, because I still think that there could be more of them, »

Forever: ABC Orders Full Season of Struggling Drama

7 November 2014 4:13 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Forever has been struggling in the ratings, ABC has ordered nine additional episodes, bringing the first season tally to 22 installments.

On the Forever TV show, New York City's star medical examiner is Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd). He can ascertain things that most can not because of his vast experience -- he's been alive for 200 years but can't figure out how or why. The rest of the cast includes Alana de la Garza, Lorraine Toussaint, Donnie Keshawarz, Joel David Moore, and Judd Hirsch.

The show debuted in late September and got off to a poor start, following the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars on a Monday night. It attracted a 1.5 rating with 8.26 million viewers. The following night, in its permanent timeslot, the demo rose to a 1.8 rating but viewership dropped to 6.62 million. »

'Forever' gets a full season from ABC, 'Selfie' will not

7 November 2014 12:44 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beating accusations of a Friday Afternoon News Dump by a few hours, ABC confirmed a Good News/Bad News proposition this morning. Which would you like first? Fine. We're cockeyed optimists here, so we'll go "good news" first. "Forever" has been given a full-season order by ABC, which picked up a back-nine for the immortality-fueled procedural, which stars Ioan Gruffudd, Alana de la Garza and Judd Hirsch. In live ratings, "Forever" had a so-so start, but has struggled lately drawing audiences hovering a bit under 5 million viewers. DVR figures have been better, with Live+7 figures bringing "Forever" to nearly 8.8 million viewers and a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49 through its opening month. Mostly though, what "Forever" has had in its favor is a cursed time period on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Last season, that hour was responsible for the season's first cancellation in "Lucky 7" and for midseason failures "Killer Women" and "Mind Games. »

Forever episode 7 review: New York Kids

29 October 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rich kids and murder make up this week's inconsistent episode of Forever, the future of which is hanging in the balance...

This review contains spoilers.

1.7 New York Kids

I’m not sure why, but privileged young adults seem to be the staple diet of murder mysteries. Probably the source of this connection is the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie Rope (1948), inspired by a real-life murder committed by University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb.

In that instance two rich kids kidnapped and murdered a teenager to prove their superiority, by committing the perfect crime.

And, this is the undercurrent that Forever works with in New York Kids, where the obvious audience reaction is designed to dislike the privileged, and ignore the many clues that suggest they’re not actually the murderers in this case.

But in many respects, the whole exercise is a smokescreen for some subtle character development, »

Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Courtney Baxter, Dante Palminteri | Written by Thunder Levin | Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante

Fin Shepard (Ziering) and his ex-wife April (Reid) are flying to New York City when their plane enters the most unnatural of storms and is battered by airborne sharks. As blood is shed and passengers are maimed in the skies, New York awakens and people spill onto the streets, unaware of the peril descending rapidly towards them… a sharknado is about to hit the big apple! Armed with weapons and explosives, Fin realises he must risk all to save his sister’s family from the greatest of danger as floods and storms crash into the city.

The first Sharknado was something of an unexpected phenomenon. Your typical monster-movie produced by The Asylum, it captured the imagination of more than just those of who usually tune-in »

Forever: Cancel or Keep the New ABC Drama?

22 October 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC is still trying to fill that Tuesdays at 10pm timeslot. Many ABC shows have been given that timeslot and they've all been cancelled -- Killer Women, Body of Proof and Lucky 7, to name just a few. So, how's the new Forever TV show doing? Will it break the trend or be cancelled as well?

On the Forever TV show, New York City's star medical examiner is Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd). He can ascertain things that most can not because of his vast experience -- he's been alive for 200 years but can't figure out how or why.

Jon Stewart as 'Meet the Press' host would’ve been a terrible idea — unless 'Daily Show' was on Sunday

8 October 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Stewart as “Meet the Press” host would’ve been a terrible idea — unless he did “The Daily Show” on Sunday Jon Stewart is "a supplement, a commentator, throwing stinkbombs in from the outside,” says James Poniewozik. "To put him in that Beltway-priest, neutral-insider role would have been a joke, and not the ha-ha kind. On the other hand, if NBC were hiring Stewart to replace not just David Gregory, but the idea of 'Meet the Press' itself–to create, if not a copy, 'The Daily Show,' a seriously funny issues show with a point of view and an adversarial attitude that would roast not just the guests, but the culture of Washington–now that could have been something.” Plus: Jon Stewart is a terrible interviewer who would’ve been a terrible host, Stewart’s agent wouldn’t deny the "Meet the Press' report, and »

Forever: Season One Ratings

8 October 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The Tuesdays at 10pm timeslot has been a big ratings problem for ABC for quite awhile. Show after show has been cancelled. Will their new Forever series change that trend? Will it be renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

On the Forever TV show, New York City's star medical examiner is Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd). He can ascertain things that most can not because of his vast experience -- he's been alive for 200 years but can't figure out how or why. The rest of the cast includes Alana de la Garza, Lorraine Toussaint, Donnie Keshawarz, Joel David Moore, and Judd Hirsch.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available »

Ioan Gruffudd Talks Forever, Keeping an Element of Danger with an Immortal Character, Working with Judd Hirsch, and More

30 September 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

On the new ABC drama series Forever, Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is hiding a big secret. New York City's star medical examiner not only studies the dead to solve criminal cases, but also to look for answers as to why he's been alive for 200 years. With the help of his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch), who is the only one that knows his secret, Henry's remarkable observation skills are proving to be quite useful for Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza), but they're also raising questions and curiosity. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Ioan Gruffudd talked about how he got involved with Forever, keeping the element of danger when your character can never die, the awkwardness of always coming back to life naked, working with Judd Hirsch, Henry’s mysterious enemy, and not needing to know all of the answers.  Check out what he »

‘Forever’ Series Premiere Review

23 September 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writer: Matthew Miller

Director: Brad Anderson

Cast: Ioan Gruffudd, Alana De La Garza, Joel David Moore, Judd Hirsch

The Story: Henry Morgan is an immortal doctor working in the city morgue.  After surviving a subway crash, Morgan goes in search of the perpatrator whilst a mysterious caller reveals he knows his secret.

The Verdict:

When I first heard of Forever I was unsure what to expect, the premise made it sound like it would take a mainly supernatural tone but going by the pilot, the show seems to be a nice mix of genres.

Ioan Gruffudd’s Dr. Henry Morgan fancies himself a bit of a Sherlock Holmes as he deducts a pretty cellist’s life on the subway.  Just as you feel you has the general gist, the subway train crashes and both Morgan and the cellist are dead.  However through Morgan’s narrative we learn that he cannot »
