Performer of the Week: Billy Burke

The Performer | Billy Burke

The Show | Zoo

The Episode | “Welcome to the Terra Dome” (July 20, 2017)

The Performance | Even as some very angry birds swooped in and attacked New York, this week’s Zoo managed to be wildly funny — and that, as always, is due to Burke finding just the right notes as ‎Mitch Morgan, a veterinary pathologist whose skills have very much been put to the test over two-plus seasons of utter insanity.

To briefly recap just the past few weeks: presumed dead after being mauled by “razorback” animal hybrids, Mitch actually spend the decade-long time jump “hibernating in a healing tank, »

If you just finished watching the premiere of Disney Channel’s Descendants 2, you’re probably thinking three things: (1) This was so much better than the first movie.

The 25 Best Romances of the 21st Century, From ‘Carol’ to ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’

7 July 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Eat your heart out, moviegoers. Everyone loves a good love story whether they admit it or not, and the 21st century has brought us more than a few couples worth rooting for: Clementine and Joel, Ennis and Jack, Joaquin and his computer. Often these unions are unconventional or hidden in the guise of something more high-concept — straightforward romances are so 20th century — but at the end of the day, we all want to see a happy ending for our smitten lovers.

Our list goes all over the map, from the mainstream maestro Nancy Meyers to international masters like Wong Kar-Wai. Some were blockbuster hits (“Twilight,” “The Proposal”); others have hardly been seen stateside at all (Lee Chang-dong’s 2002 “Oasis”). However, all of them illustrate some essential element of love, from falling to longing and all the sticky bits in between.

While the zeitgeist has skewed toward the melancholy, that’s »

8 Reasons Why CBS’ ‘Zoo’ Is the Most Insane Summer Series You’re Not Watching

29 June 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

CBS’ Zoo, much like the establishments that give the series its name, has a lot of shit going on. Basically, a cataclysmic event caused every animal on Earth to rise up and turn against the human race. It’s up to a rag-tag team—zoologist Jackson Oz (James Wolk), journalist Jamie Campbell (Kristen Connolly), safari guide Abraham Kenyatta (Nonso Anozie), intelligence agent Chloe Tousignant (Nora Arnezeder) and pathologist Mitch Morgan (Billy Burke)—to develop a cure. Honestly, the details don’t matter. What actually does matter is the fact Zoo is a beautiful, preposterous summer slice of sensory overload. … »
