Although it didn't manage to avoid being killed by ABC, Red Widow is a great crime drama featuring a solid cast and a slow-twisting story - even if it only last eight episodes and ends without tying up all the loose ends.

TV show description:
Marta Walraven (Radha Mitchell) is a stay-at-home mom just north of San Francisco and seems to have an idyllic life. She's devoted to her husband Evan and their three children; Natalie (Erin Moriarty), Gabriel (Sterling Beaumon), and Boris (Jakob Salvati). Behind this perfect façade however, is a more complicated story. Evan supports the family by exporting marijuana.

The show's ratings were unfortunately very low right from the start -- debuting to a 1.5 demo rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.13 million total viewers.
The numbers got worse for later episodes and Red Widow fell as low as a 0.7 rating and 3.47 million viewers -- much too low »
Tonight marks the season finale of Red Widow since ABC ordered just eight episodes of the series. Is this the end? Will the drama be back for a second season or will it be cancelled instead?
For those unfamiliar with the show, Red Widow revolves around a San Francisco housewife and mother who finds herself forced to continue her husband's work in organized crime after his death. The large cast includes Radha Mitchell, Clifton Collins Jr., Luke Goss, Sterling Beaumon, Suleka Mathew, Erin Moriarty, Jaime Ray Newman, Jakob Salvati, Lee Tergesen, Wil Traval, Rade Serbedzija, and Goran Visnjic.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing a second season renewal for Red Widow. The show's ratings were poor at the start -- debuting to a 1.5 demo rating with 7.13 million viewers -- and have gotten a lot worse as the weeks have worn on. »
"Red Widow" Season 1 came to an end on ABC tonight and given the show's low ratings it could be the end of the series for good.
Season to date, "Red Widow" has been averaging 5.15 million viewers and a 1.1 in the key 18-49 demo. But the numbers have been plummeting week-to-week, last week reaching a series low of 3.47 million viewers and 0.7 in the demo.
In the climactic installment, Marta (Radha Mitchell) discovered that her own father (Rade Serbedzija) was involved in the murder of her husband and bodyguard Luther (Luke Goss) lost his life. And in the cliffhanger ending Marta's daughter Natalie (Erin Moriarty) pulled a gun on Nicholae Schiller (Goran Visnjic) to finish the business of avenging her father's death (without knowing she has the wrong man).
Was that good enough to make you curious to see what happens next, or should ABC simply cut their losses on the low-rated drama? »

Throughout April, we're counting down to the release of Marvel's Iron Man 3 with our picks for the Greatest Comic Book Movies of All Time; here's #18...
Hellboy II: The Golden Army, 2008.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro.
Director Guillermo del Toro reunites with Ron Perlman as Mike Mignola's demonic hero Hellboy returns to protect humanity from Prince Nuada (Luke Goss, who also appeared as the main bad guy in another del Toro-directed comic book sequel, Blade II), who is looking to harness the power of the Golden Army - an "unstoppable force" of magical creatures.
Despite Hellboy turning a respectable profit for Columbia Pictures in 2004, it wasn't until the release of the critically acclaimed Pan's Labyrinth that del Toro was to get the go ahead for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. »

The blokes who flex their muscles in Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts events are mostly a larger-than-life blend of showmanship and brawn – which explains why they’re increasingly being snapped up by Hollywood. With more and more Mma fighters moving into the movies, I thought I’d take a look at some of the biggest names to have made the crossover.
Winner of numerous Mma trophies around the globe, Schiena flexed his acting chops in Locked Down as a framed cop who winds up in jail and is forced into cage fighting by none other than Brit hardman turned thesp Vinnie Jones. Schiena retired from sport after breaking both his ankles (ouch!) but has since found his feet on the big screen working with everyone from Pacino to Van Damme.

Sound interesting? Sound kinda like Fox's (cancelled) Mob Doctor? Here's what some of the television critics think:
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "It's hard to understand why anyone, in March 2013, would opt »
ABC's new drama "Red Widow" attempts to blend cable style storytelling with the network's brand of female-driven serials: Think "Breaking Bad" meets "Desperate Housewives," except with just one housewife.
It's an ambitious goal, based -- inevitably -- on a preexisting idea. In this case, that's the Dutch series "Penoza," which serves as inspiration for executive producer Melissa Rosenberg ("Dexter," "The Twilight Saga") as she explores the story of Marin County mom Marta Walraven (Radha Mitchell) who is drawn into the world of the Russian mafia after the death of her husband (guest star Anson Mount of AMC's "Hell on Wheels").
The intriguing concept gets an awfully prolonged set-up in the first of two hours premiering on ABC Sunday night. The opening stretch intends to establish Marta's marriage, the couple's three children, various family relationships and her husband's life of crime.
