Christine Horton Feb 27, 2017

When will Grimm stop the Wesen-of-the-week stories in favour of wrapping up its overall arcs in time for the finale?

6.8 The Son Also Rises

Another week, another random Wesen-related mystery – this time we were presented with a tale that was ‘heavily influenced’ by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

The gist of it is a scientist – named Victor Shelley, I kid you not – attempts to bring his dead son back to life, with the aid of a few stolen body parts from the local cemetery. What he doesn’t take into account is those body parts are taken from Wesen, leading him to create a human-hybrid monster with murder on his mind. We’re

Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 Review: The Son Also Rises

  • TVfanatic
I confess: I had a really, really hard time deciding what grade to give Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 because I was just too busy laughing my head off.

It was just so difficult to take "The Son Also Rises" with any amount of seriousness, particularly as a person with a degree in English and a modicum of scientific understanding.

In one of the most blatant riffs on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I have ever seen, Grimm had pretty much everything except for villagers wielding torches and pitchforks!

The whole thing was started by the un-subtley named Victor Shelley got into a car accident with his son, killing (not mostly killing, or nearly killing, but actually killing!) said son.

In a feat of astonishing scientific brilliance (otherwise known as magic), Dr. Shelley and his colleagues actually managed to resurrect the son! They literally brought him back from the dead!

In fact, the

Reviewing every episode of Aziz Ansari's 'Master of None' season 1

  • Hitfix
I posted my review of Aziz Ansari's "Master of None" last week. Netflix's binge-release business model makes episodic reviews impractical (I've tried a hybrid model with "Orange Is the New Black" the last few seasons, with very mixed success), so I thought I would try something different. You already know my overall thoughts from the prior piece, so I'm going to offer up quick thoughts on each individual episode (with spoilers for all), coming up just as soon as I begin the night with an aggressive Cartman impression... Episode 1: Plan B The broken condom anecdote is pretty terrific and unusual as a way into the Dev/Rachel relationship that will play out over the rest of the season. Like so much of the show, the devil winds up being in the details, like the way the Uber driver is blasting rap music to make things extra uncomfortable for them.

‘Wer’ DVD Review

Stars: A.J. Cook, Sebastian Roché, Vik Sahay, Stephanie Lemelin, Simon Quarterman, Brian Scott O’Connor, Camelia Maxim | Written by William Brent Bell, Matthew Peterman | Directed by William Brent Bell

It’s not often you can sit down to watch a werewolf movie and say you were truly surprised by what you saw. I think the last time I can recall feeling the same way was upon seeing Ginger Snaps for the first time. But I can honestly say I was totally surprised by Wer. Even more so given that this film was written and directed by William Brent Bell, the man behind the godawful found footage horror The Devil Inside!

When something slaughters a family camping in the French countryside, the freakishly large and powerful Talan Gwynek (Brian Scott O’Connor) is arrested for the crime. While as his public defender Kate (A.J. Cook) argues his case, she begins to

Jinx Spoof Starring Brian Dunkleman as Robert Durst-esque Serial Killer In Development at E!
This just may be ludicrous enough to work.

E! is developing a half-hour mockumentary series in the spirit of HBO’s true-crime smash The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, with ex-American Idol co-host Brian Dunkleman starring as a serial-killer version of himself.

Tentatively titled Quest 4 Truth: Dunkleman, the satire imagines an alternate universe where Dunkleman — despondent after making the billion dollar mistake of walking away from Idol — becomes a suspected serial killer.

NCIS Recap: Rules That Make a Man

NCIS Recap: Rules That Make a Man
CBS’ NCIS this Tuesday celebrated Christmas with an episode that paid tribute to the many “rules” Gibbs has laid out over eleven-and-a-half seasons and also weaved in a surprising emotional punch.

On the surface, the holiday-themed outing was about a suspicious Washington, D.C.-wide Internet shutdown and how the NCIS team handled it, with the assist of three hackers that Gibbs & Co had put behind bars in recent years: “I.T. Kevin” (played by Ethan Rains), Heidi Partridge (Erin Allin O’Reilly) and Ajay Khan (Chuck‘s Vik Sahay).

Rule No. 8: “Never take anything for granted.”

CBS’ NCIS takes that to heart tonight at 8/7c, with a Christmas episode that reflects on one of the long-running drama’s recurring themes: Gibbs’ Rules.

“I wanted for a while to do an episode about Gibbs’ rules,” showrunner Gary Glasberg tells TVLine, “and Chris Waild, one of my writer-producers, had the clever idea of incorporating it into our Christmas show.”

The framing device, per Glasberg: “McGee (played by Sean Murray) is writing a letter to his father, sitting at the great, old typewriter that he writes his books on, sort of

Wer Review

A “found footage” horror movie about werewolves? From the guys behind The Devil Inside? Bear with me, I promise there’s a light at the end of this topsy-turvy tunnel.

Where The Exorcism Of Emily Rose attempts to weigh demonic possession against mental illness, Wer calls upon the same judicial storytelling by putting a suspected werewolf on trial in hopes of proving innocence through physical ailments. Playing out like a faux-documentary, most of the film is spent watching a sassy lawyer defender her furry client, condemning a case riddled with inconsequential evidence that only the worst investigation could slum together, but a shockingly invigorated third act changes at the rising of a full moon. Writer/Director William Brent Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman’s previous film, The Devil Inside, crumbles under the weight of vapid storytelling and an absolutely insulting ending, but these rejuvenated artists refuse to wander the same joyless road a second time.
