Smallville DVD Exclusive: Tom Welling and Others Share 'Lex-Rated' Series Finale Secrets

23 November 2011 7:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Each time I think I am done writing about Smallville… they pull me back in. Or, in this instance, an exclusive sneak peek at an extra from the complete series DVD set (out next Tuesday, Nov. 29) lands in my lap.

As TVLine had the thrill of being the first to report, Michael Rosenbaum, after some back-and-forth and negotiating of schedules, made his way back to the CW series just in time to bring Lex appeal to the grand finale. In the below clip from the featurette “The Return of Lex Luthor,” Rosenbaum, series lead Tom Welling and others discuss what »

'Smallville' producers talk Michael Rosenbaum's exit, Lex's legacy -- Exclusive Clip

23 November 2011 5:30 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Smallville fans remember the end of season 7 well — it’s when the superhero show bid farewell to series regular Michael Rosenbaum and, subsequently, Lex Luthor. And as this EW exclusive clip from Smallville: The Complete Series shows, there was never anyone quite like him ever again. In this tiny sliver of the 192 hours (!!) of content on the DVD set, which hits shelves Nov. 29, executive producers and fellow actors reflect on Rosenbaum’s unforgettable turn as the iconic character. Ep Greg Beeman perhaps says it best: “Every once and a while a part comes along that an actor was born to play, »

"License To Drive": Some Guys Get All The Brakes

12 November 2011 7:29 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

The re-release of director Greg Beeman's "License to Drive", the 1988 teen adventure film starring 'the two Coreys', Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, written by Neil Tolkin, will be available on DVD/Blu-ray, from Anchor Bay, November 22, 2011 :

"...'Les Anderson' (Haim), a 16-year-old who is trying to get his driver's license, has a crush on one of the more popular and attractive girls in school, 'Mercedes Lane' (Heather Graham). After failing his driver's exam, Les takes the road test (and passes), following a computer surge that he inadvertently caused.

"Les then lies to his parents and friends, convincing them that he passed the test. Unfortunately, his parents find out the truth and as a result, Les is grounded. That night, having already made plans to use his new license, he sneaks out of the house with his grandfather's prized 1972 Cadillac for a night on the town with Mercedes.

Once Upon a Time, Ep. 1.02: “The Thing You Love Most” – strangely intriguing

7 November 2011 8:14 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Once Upon a Time, S1E02, “The Thing You Love Most”Written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz

Directed by Greg Beeman

Airs Sundays at 8pm Et on ABC

Though the majority of reviews for the pilot of Once Upon A Time were pretty harsh, perhaps the show deserves a second chance. The creators have plenty to accomplish and can’t possibly fully address dozens of characters and parallel worlds in just one episode. But the first question that springs to mind is, “Who exactly is the target audience?” Is it the folks who love Desperate Housewives, or the teenage girls who swoon over Twilight, or is it directed more towards children under the age of twelve? Perhaps the show-runners haven’t quite decided yet, which might be the show’s number one problem (well ,apart from the dodgy special effects, wretched dialogue, offensive CGI and the hilariously campy central role of Henry). However, »

As we told you in the summer, post-alien-invasion series Falling Skies was picked up by TNT for a second season, and yesterday TNT announced that the 2nd Massachusetts is back in action and on set. They’ve released one from-the-set excellent pic of our hero Tom Mason, aka Noah Wyle, looking ruggedly handsome and none the worse for what he did at the end of season 1.

TNT has also issued a press release that includes not only a summary for newbies, but some insight into the new season.

"Falling Skies" Episode 10 "Eight Hours" and What Happens Offscreen?: A Television Review

8 August 2011 7:30 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Greg Beeman.

Writer: Mark Verheiden and Robert Rodat.

Cast: Noah Wyle, Colin Cunningham, Moon Bloodgood, and Will Patton.

The final episode for "Falling Skies" debuted August 7th after "Mutiny." This latest episode was titled "Eight Hours" and in this finale, Weaver's (Will Patton) attack moves forward. As well, Ben (Connor Jessup) helps Scott (Bruce Gray) to jam the aliens' radio frequencies. An alien attack occurs at the high school, while Rick (Daniyah Ysrayl) proves himself to be a confederate for the enemy. Finally some action occurred to break up the melodrama and this last episode almost proved to be anti-climactic. If not for Tom Mason's (Noah Wyle) lucky shot on the terrordome in Boston, there would have been no actual footage shown of the 2nd Mass' attack.

Tom is left behind by Weaver to protect the civilians at the local high school. However, being behind the front lines is still risky. »

Falling Skies Giveaway

2 August 2011 10:02 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I hope you've been keeping up with Falling Skies, the hit TNT show about an alien invasion of Earth. As you may recall from my Falling Skies review, I was a little hesitant about predicting viewer response after the first couple of episodes. I liked the show, but this is a tricky genre in terms of guessing how audiences will respond. Well, they apparently responded quite well, and you probably know that the show has been picked up for a second season.

Actually, I was especially curious about how fans would react to the last couple of episodes, and now that they've aired, I'd be interested to know what people thought of them.

But, it's finale time now, and this Sunday brings an episode you don't want to miss. It's all been building up to this, and the 2-hour finale is going to throw out a lot of interesting material, »

"Falling Skies" Episode 5 "Silent Kill" and Exciting Rescues?: A Television Review

13 July 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*here be some spoilers.

**air date for this episode was July 10th, 2011.

Creator/Writer: Robert Rodat.

Director: Greg Beeman.

"Falling Skies" is a television show airing on TNT (Turner Network Television), which began in June of 2011. Now, this show is five episodes in and the show reviewed here is episode five. This episode is titled "Silent Kill" and again, Noah Wyle as Tom Mason plays a central role, with actress Moon Bloodgood as Anne moving more forefront. A subplot involving a kidnapped boy, by aliens, is wrapped up and the tone of "Silent Kill" was clearly set in sappy melodrama. One character is killed and overall, "Falling Skies" seems to be getting a little too comfortable in the local high school.

In case you have not seen the show, "Falling Skies" began with an alien invasion and a mass exodus of survivors into rural, or destroyed urban communities. Character Tom Mason is a seargant, »

'Falling Skies': Colin Cunningham talks about breakout turn as biker/baker baddie John Pope

11 July 2011 6:56 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

There are many reasons to watch Falling Skies, TNT’s absorbing summertime sci-fi hit about ordinary folk-turned-warriors surviving – and rebelling against — a devastating alien invasion. Tops on the list: Noah Wyle’s strong central performance and the creepy mystery of the gooey harnesses making docile drones out of captive kids. (Spoiler Alert for anyone who hasn’t yet seen Sunday’s episode: How creepy was that alien-hosted slumber party with Ben and the other harness kids? Didn’t that hair-stroking beastie strike you as nurturing, even parental?) Alas, one of the most enjoyable elements of Falling Skies was (temporarily) Mia »

‘Falling Skies’ Ratings Soar – Top Cable Launch of 2011

20 June 2011 11:34 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

This is why you get Steven Spielberg involved. Sunday night’s two-hour premiere of Falling Skies hooked more than 5.9 million viewers making it the most-watched cable launch of 2011. It outperformed other big cable debuts such as USA’s Covert Affairs (4.9 million) and AMC’s The Walking Dead (5.3 million) and scored big numbers in the 18-49 demo (2.6 million) and the adults 25-54 demo (3.2 million). The numbers, gathered from Nielsen Media Research, are even more impressive when you consider the show is a science-fiction military drama, a tricky genre to lure and keep new viewers.

Falling Skies stars Noah Wylie as a Cambridge history professor turned soldier after an alien invasion depletes the earth of its military powers, food supply and use of electronics. Wylie’s character lost his wife to the invasion and his middle-son is being enslaved by the aliens. His oldest son fights alongside him in the resistance while »

Falling Skies Review – TV – TNT

15 June 2011 2:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

In just a few days, TNT will begin airing Falling Skies, its hope that it can succeed in a genre that hasn't performed especially well of late, and a lot of that hope rests on the fact that it gets to use the names Noah Wyle and Steven Spielberg (not necessarily in that order).

The main idea people are going to attach to the show is that it has aliens in it, but it actually has a lot more in common with things like the classic British series Survivors (or the remake), than with the alien-related offerings that have made their way to television recently.

We enter the show with the alien invasion long underway. In fact, the Earth is fairly well conquered already, and the human survivors are few and far between. Technological comforts are rare, and so is food, and existence has devolved into mere survival. Small pockets of resistance have formed, »
