‘Crossbones’ Series Finale Review: Too Little, Too Late

3 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of the Crossbones series finale. There will be Spoilers.]

-

The two-part Crossbones series finale puts on display all that was good and bad with Neil Cross’ (Luther) pirate-themed series about a man named Edward ‘Blackbeard’ Teach.

Two-time Academy Award nominee John Molkovich was poised to lead this crew of relatively unknown actors to summertime television success, but sadly, this ship never quite knew which direction it wanted to sail in.

There were moments, especially during its premiere, where Crossbones appeared to be hanging its hopes and dreams on the relationship between Teach and Lowe. Next to Malkovich, Richard Coyle (Lowe) has proven himself a worthy supporting star, by standing toe-to-toe with the acting legend effortlessly. Unfortunately, ...

Crossbones: Cancelled? NBC Series Shipped to Saturdays

25 July 2014 12:28 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC has decided that their low-rated Friday night drama, Crossbones, will now wrap with a pair of episodes on Saturday August 2nd. The installments had previously been set for Friday, August 1st and Friday, August 8th.

Though the network hasn't said that Crossbones has been cancelled, the ratings have been terrible and it's highly unlikely to return for a second season.

Crossbones revolves around the life of Edward Teach (John Malkovich), better known as Blackbeard the pirate, and his desire to aquire a valuable invention called the longitude chronometer. Others in the cast are Yasmine Al Massri, Richard Coyle, Claire Foy, David Hoflin, Tracy Ifeachor, and Chris Perfetti.

Here are the schedule notes:

Crossbones: Season One Ratings

28 June 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

A couple years ago, NBC aired Crusoe, an adventure series based on the classic Robinson Crusoe novel and character. It was quickly cancelled. Now, the network is trying Crossbones, another adventure series about the same era. Will this one be a success and be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled as well? We'll have to wait and see.

Crossbones revolves around the life of Edward Teach (John Malkovich), better known as Blackbeard the pirate, and his desire to aquire a valuable invention called the longitude chronometer. Others in the cast are Yasmine Al Massri, Richard Coyle, Claire Foy, David Hoflin, Tracy Ifeachor, and Chris Perfetti.

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 »

Grabbers (2012) Review

Grabbers (2012)

Director: Jon Wright

Writer: Kevin Lehane

Cast: Richard Coyle (Garda Ciaran O’Shea), Ruth Bradley (Garda Lisa Nolan), Russell Tovey (Dr. Adam Smith), Lalor Roddy (Paddy Barrett), David Pearse (Brian Maher)

I’m probably revealing my hand too soon, as a matter fact, I know I am. This is one of my favorites that I’ve seen year, and it’s a great little film that incorporates a lot of things that I love about other films into a solid entry on the sincere recommend list of great little gems that need more exposure. I love horror films set in the United Kingdom. That love goes way back to the Hammer and Amicus films, the great gothic scenery. and groovy 1970’s vibes. The new generation of great U.K. horror films has its own subset of categories. You have the “28 Days Later” type that’s full on horror, »

Yasmine Al Massri of 'Crossbones' talks working with John Malkovich and more

20 June 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr)  "Crossbones" isn’t your traditional pirate adventure. Based on the book "The Republic of Pirates" by Colin Woodard, the NBC drama follows the presumed-dead Blackbeard (played by John Malkovich), who’s alive and reigning over a secluded island of scoundrels and misfits. It’s here that undercover British agent Tom Lowe (Robert Coyle) plans to kill the notorious buccaneer. Making her U.S. acting debut, Lebanon-born actress Yasmine Al Massri plays Selima El Sharad, Blackbeard’s enigmatic confidant and object of his affections. Currently living in Los Angeles, Al Massri spoke with Spinoff Online about "Crossbones"' modern take on pirate lore, Selima’s relationship with Blackbeard, breaking stereotypes, and working with Malkovich. Spinoff Online: Before "Crossbones," how immersed were you with pirate pop culture? Yasmine Al Massri: I am part of this generation with "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Peter Pan." I think we all grew up in this culture of pirates. »

‘Crossbones’ Surrounds Blackbeard with Enemies

7 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of Crossbones season 1, episode 2. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Last week’s series premiere of Crossbones proved that John Malkovich (Blackbeard) and Richard Coyle (Tom Lowe) are more than capable of carrying the dramatic weight of NBC’s new pirate drama. In its second outing, entitled ‘The Covenant,’ some of the supporting cast members are called upon to help share the load. Were they successful, or did they crumble under the intense pressure?

This question is paramount, due to the fact that even with two strong leading characters, any new series is only as strong as its ensemble (or guest stars for that matter). Look at a show like Almost Human, where Karl Urban (Star Trek) and Michael Ealy (Underworld: Awakening) had ...

Crossbones Review: “The Covenant” (Season 1, Episode 2)

6 June 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The second episode of NBC’s Crossbones, “The Covenant,” begins with a rather out-of-the-blue revelation: James Balfour (Peter Stebbings), Blackbeard’s (John Malkovich) wheelchair-bound inventor friend, has actually succeeded in repairing the shiny, golden longitude chronometer that Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle) took such care to destroy at the beginning of the series. How he got it fixed so quickly is beyond me. Anyhow, he has done so, and Blackbeard at last has the weapon that Lowe was so desperate to keep from him.

Soon, however, Blackbeard is faced with another obstacle: a crew of men led by Sam Valentine (Stuart Wilson), an old acquaintance of Blackbeard. The Commodore wants Sam to take the chronometer and sell it to the British forces, led by William Jagger (Julian Sands) in Jamaica. The payment that the Commodore wants: two hell-burners (powerful battleships). Sam has a rather adverse reaction to Blackbeard’s offer, feeling »

'Crossbones' premiere leaves us feeling a bit adrift

30 May 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The premiere episode of NBC’s swashbuckling Crossbones, which stars John Malkovich as the pirate Blackbeard, had enough slit throats for a slow episode of Game of Thrones but wasn’t as sharply scripted. It’s a pity, because the premise is promising.

Assassin Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle) is tasked with posing as a ship’s surgeon so he can accompany the inventor of a Longitude Chronometer to London, where the man is expected to present the device — which allows ships to calculate their precise location while at sea — to the king. Knowing Blackbeard will try to intercept the chronometer, »

Crossbones Series Premiere Review: “The Devil’s Dominion” (Season 1, Episode 1)

30 May 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comparisons between Crossbones, NBC’s umpteenth attempt at launching a successful series this season, and Black Sails, another pirate-themed show over on Starz, are inevitable. And Black Sails has Crossbones beat in every respect. It’s sharper, grittier, more compelling and certainly sexier (you won’t be seeing any steamy, R-rated hookups on NBC, that’s for sure). Still, there are worse ways to spend a Friday night than watching John Malkovich bite into the role of Blackbeard with theatrical, bizarrely-accented gusto on Crossbones. Make no mistake – Malkovich is the main attraction, and in many ways the sole attraction, of Crossbones.

So, is he enough? Is Crossbones worth tuning in for? The answer is that it’s still too early to tell – but early signs in “The Devil’s Dominion” aren’t promising. Though Malkovich is clearly relishing his part, and he’s hamming it up in a way that »

Crossbones Review: The Legend of Blackbeard Gets a Reconsideration, Loses the Beard

30 May 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first thing to note about NBC's new pirate drama Crossbones, about the legendary Blackbeard, is that the actor portraying him, John Malkovich, sports a small gray goatee.  This Blackbeard also doesn't like the name Blackbeard (probably because he doesn't have one), and prefers the distinction The Commodore, or occasionally around his friends, Ed.  You see, the Blackbeard you thought you knew from legend is really more of a utopian socialist / Deist / appreciator of overdecorating, with a deep affinity for clocks.  But perhaps not all is lost.  There's a lot of pretty water.  Hit the jump for more. Crossbones feels like many other high-seas and island-dwelling shows before it, from the likes of BBC America's Sinbad to NBC's own Crusoe.  There are beautiful beach scenes, with crystal waters and gently waving palms that are just the sort of thing to lull one to sleep on a Friday summer's night, »

ABC will burn off the remaining episodes of The Assets on Saturdays starting on June 21. I rather liked ABC’s espionage mini-series when it got pulled, so I’m looking forward to seeing the remaining episodes.

Deadline reports that Ghost Hunters is losing out Taps team member Adam Berry. Berry and fellow paranormal investigator Amy Bruni are leaving to work on their own show.

How will ABC singing competition Rising Star work? The series will conduct eliminations based on how viewers vote on a show app with results being counted during the live broadcast. But how will that work in a country with five time zones? In the Eastern, Central and Mountain time zones, the show will air live. Meanwhile, West Coast viewers will basically get to veto the other three time zones’ rejections. There’s no mention if viewers in Hawaii are included in the West Coast. »

TV Review: ‘Crossbones’

28 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Malkovich as Blackbeard the Pirate? Arrgh, sign me up, right? Alas, not so fast with “Crossbones,” a summer series that it feels like NBC has produced a couple of times before (“Crusoe,” anyone?), with beautiful crystal-blue waters and characters and situations that carry about as much weight. In a sense, Malkovich’s philosophical butcher is a logical heir to the timeslot where “Hannibal” has been dining (albeit on very small portions), but other than its lovely vistas, the early episodes suggest the ruthless villain has been thrown into the ocean in a leaky vehicle — and without a paddle.

That’s both a shame and something of a surprise, since Neil Cross (“Luther”) is at the helm, although his premise essentially establishes Blackbeard (who prefers to be known as the Commodore) as a secondary player.

The real star, actually, is Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle), a James Bond-like operator, circa 1729, dispatched »
