Performer of the Week: The Mayor's Brandon Micheal Hall

Performer of the Week: The Mayor's Brandon Micheal Hall
The Performer | Brandon Micheal Hall

The Show | The Mayor

The Episode | “Pilot” (Oct. 3, 2017)

The Performance | Let’s be real: As terrific as The Mayor‘s ensemble cast is, ABC’s freshman comedy was always going to live or die based on the strength of — duh — its mayor. Luckily, Hall is hella strong.

From the get-go, the Search Party vet had us eating out of the palm of his hand, as wannabe rap star Courtney Rose went from goofily flirting with his kicks to gossiping with his mom (Yvette Nicole Brown, sublime as ever) to admitting that he was only running

How to Get Away With Murder Recap: How Annalise Got Her Groove Back

How to Get Away With Murder Recap: How Annalise Got Her Groove Back
Considering what she’s gone through in the last three years — or even the last six months, really — Annalise Keating could really use a win.

And in Thursday’s episode of How to Get Away With Murder, she finally got one. Of course, the ABC drama isn’t really big on letting its characters feel happiness for more than one scene, so Annalise’s victory is short-lived. But she’s finally got something to put in the “W” column — a courtroom triumph, to be specific — and that’s a start.

When Annalise sits down for another court-ordered therapy session with Isaac,

Jennifer Beals on Playing the Secretly Biracial Star Margo Taft in ‘The Last Tycoon’

Jennifer Beals on Playing the Secretly Biracial Star Margo Taft in ‘The Last Tycoon’
One of the unexpected joys of Amazon’s “The Last Tycoon,” which debuted in July, is actress Jennifer Beals’ turn as Margo Taft, an ambitious screen siren who is caught between feuding studio heads Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) and Louis B. Mayer (Saul Rubinek, playing the real-life mogul behind MGM). Margo’s storyline is the liveliest of “The Last Tycoon,” largely due to the vim of Beals herself — after finagling her way into a Brady picture, she demands that the director come to her dressing room and drop his pants, so that she can take the measure of the man who might try to order her around. (Margo doesn’t make the poor sucker go through with it — but the point, as she explains with a sultry air, is that he was willing to.)

But ultimately Margo is nearly undone by a long-buried secret that comes to light mid-season. When her beloved maid Lucille (L. Scott Caldwell) dies

PSA: There Was a Lost Reunion on Insecure and You Probably Missed It

It's been seven years since the series finale of Lost, but people are still not over the puzzling sci-fi drama. The substantial passage of time since the show's conclusion, however, is really evident in the latest episode of HBO's Insecure, where a mini reunion took place and viewers didn't even realize it. In the second season's fifth episode, titled "Hella Shook," Molly (Yvonne Orji) attends a vow-renewal ceremony for her parents. Molly's mother is played by L. Scott Caldwell, and in case you didn't recognize her while watching, she's the same actress who played Rose Nadler on Lost (aka the wife of Bernard Nadler). While her appearance alone would have been cool, another Lost star also makes a cameo. Remember Walt Lloyd, the show's only child character who mostly appears in the first two seasons? Well, Walt is not a little kid anymore. The same actor who once played the 10-year-old castaway,

Movie Review: From the believers behind God’s Not Dead comes a slightly less preachy Case For Christ

“You’re cheating on me—with Jesus!” exclaims Lee Strobel (Mike Vogel) when wife Leslie (Erika Christensen) shares her newfound faith with him. The Case For Christ adapts Strobel’s book of the same name for Pure Flix’s first real leap into period production (their Columbine film, I’m Not Ashamed, didn’t exactly sweat the set dressing). It’s the early ’80s, and hard-boiled Chicago Tribune reporter Strobel is a firm atheist. His daughter, Alison (Haley Rosenwasser), is saved from choking to death on a gumball by provident stranger/devout nurse Alfie (L. Scott Caldwell), who credits her not going to another restaurant that night to a feeling God gave her that she’d need to be on site. Lee isn’t convinced, but Leslie’s intrigued, and—a few church services later—she’s a full-on Christian convert. That’s too much for Lee, who sets out

Film Review: ‘The Case for Christ’

Film Review: ‘The Case for Christ’
Although it sporadically errs on the side of sentimentality and simplification, “The Case for Christ” sustains interest, and even generates mild suspense, while offering a faith-based spin on the template of an investigative-journalism drama. Director Jon Gunn and screenwriter Brian Bird have shrewdly reconstituted Lee Strobel’s best-selling book about his road-to-Damascus transition from outspoken atheist to devout Christian as a kind of theological detective story. Of course, there’s never any real doubt as to how the story will be resolved. (After all, the title is “The Case for Christ,” not “The Case Against Christianity.”) But the movie likely will impress even dedicated nonbelievers with its willingness to place as much emphasis on empirical evidence as on blind faith.

The year is 1980, a fact repeatedly underscored by conspicuous period details as Chicago Tribune reporter Lee Strobel (Mike Vogel) uses pagers and typewriters instead of smartphone and computers, drinks massive quantities of Schlitz Beer,
