Did MTV's Finding Carter Capture You?

8 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

What if your family wasn’t your family?

While we all might wish that at some point when relatives are driving us nuts, in MTV’s new series Finding Carter, it becomes a nightmare reality when the titular heroine discovers her “mom” kidnapped her. Now, she’s forced to live with her “real” family — but you don’t have to, so will you stick with them?

'Finding Carter' is, improbably, a subtle show about kidnapping

8 July 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

There’s something appealingly retro about MTV’s latest scripted offering—and not just because Finding Carter bears a striking resemblance to Caroline B. Cooney’s beloved 1990 novel The Face on the Milk Carton. (You may know it better as the inspiration for a TV movie that aired in 1995).

These days, shows for and about teenagers tend to fall into one of two categories: the Ryan Murphy-esque dramedy (high-energy, soaked with pop culture references, alternating wildly between irony and sincerity; see MTV’s own Faking It or Awkward. for examples), or the Gossip Girl-ian glitzy melodrama (think privileged »

Catching Up With Meredith Baxter

8 July 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Meredith Baxter has been a TV star since 1972 when she starred in a CBS series called Bridget Loves Birney. She went on to become beloved sitcom Mom Elyse Keaton in the long running Family Ties and then followed that by starring in (and sometimes producing) a string of successful TV movies. (My Breast, A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story and many more.)

Baxter’s successful career belied a sometimes turbulent personal life. She battled through breast cancer, domestic violence and alcoholism and even navigated a late-in-life realization that she was a lesbian.

We caught up with the actress to discuss her life today as well as her highly anticipated new series, MTV’s Finding Carter, which premieres tonight at 10/9c

TV Review: ‘Finding Carter’

6 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

What sounds like a highly provocative concept quickly devolves into a standard-issue, ABC Family-style soap in “Finding Carter,” a series whose protagonist is the right age for MTV, yet which feels fuzzily off-brand. Kathryn Prescott stars as a 16-year-old girl who discovers she was abducted at age 3 and is reunited with a family she doesn’t know, while missing the woman who happily raised her. Granted, MTV ought to be able to branch out within its younger demo, but this is still such a me-too idea it’s pretty hard to get spirited away by it.

Although one can appreciate the desire to plunge right into the story (created by Emily Silver, who shares writing credit with showrunner Terri Minsky), it might help if viewers had a little longer to get to know Prescott’s Carter in her initial environs, before a chance arrest lands her in the system and leads to her unwelcome, »

Gor blimey! Us stars attempt the English accent - Best and worst

Beginning tonight at 9pm, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in BBC Two's new eight-part thriller The Honourable Woman.

In the drama from The Shadow Line writer Hugo Blick, New York-born Maggie boasts an impressive English accent in her role as Nessa Stein.

Bit of a cheat, this one. If you've ever wondered how Chicago-born X-Files star Anderson manages to pull off that flawless English intonation in the BBC's The Fall and Great Expectations, it's more than just her considerable acting talent - Gillian spent her childhood in the United Kingdom and continues to divide her time between England and the States.

Top 15 Joss Whedon characters: The best of the Buffy, Angel, Firefly bunch

21 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon, lauded king of fandom, purveyor of wisdom and de facto overseer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, celebrates his 50th birthday on Monday (June 23).

Whedon's always had a knack for taking pre-established characters – whether it's The Avengers or a gang of talking toys or the cast of Speed – and making them just that bit more quippy and emotionally rich and awesome. But it's his original small-screen characters that remain his most beloved.

Below, Digital Spy counts down our top fifteen Whedonverse characters. You can vote for your favourite in the poll below, then take to the comments to rank about all the rankings we got wrong and all the favourites we've inevitably left out.

15. Dr Horrible

Neil Patrick Harris's "aspiring supervillain" is never at any point successfully villainous. He's a more immediately loveable extension of Buffy's Nerd Troika – the perpetually overlooked semi-recluse who can barely string a sentence together around his crush, »

MTV's 'Finding Carter' is definitely no 'Awkward': See the trailer

11 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

MTV is taking its high school programming to more dramatic heights with its newest series, Finding Carter. Unlike the network’s other teen shows – including the sci-fi spookfest Teen Wolf and the raunchy comedy Awkward – this one is a hard and true family drama. And a tearjerker, at that.

The series stars Kathryn Prescott as Carter Stevens, a teenager who gets involved in a tiny legal snafu and subsequently finds out that her ‘mother’ abducted her as a child. Her real parents are the Wilsons (Lost‘s Cynthia Watros and Angel’s Alexis Denisof). The show follows Carter (real name: »

Grimm season 3 episode 18 review: The Law Of Sacrifice

14 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Christine Horton 14 Apr 2014 - 14:35

Grimm's third season is really hitting its stride. Here's Christine's review of The Law Of Sacrifice...

This review contains spoilers.

3.18 The Law Of Sacrifice

Grimmsters were treated to another action-packed episode this week, indicating the series is really hitting its stride as it approaches the final leg of season three.

However it’s more than finally delivering what it’s been promising us for weeks; The Law Of Sacrifice feels like a game-changing episode.

Prince Viktor knows Adalind is back in Portland and will stop at nothing to stop at nothing to get his hands on her child. Several things happen as Viktor’s search reaches its conclusion: battle lines are drawn, sides are taken, and we witness a betrayal that is sure to have devastating repercussions for the fragile alliance.

But it wasn’t all about fighting and fast talk. The way »
