Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 4

17 October 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

And thus, a new era began.

Buffy Season Four is a controversial Season amongst fans. To put it simply – it’s not the favourite for many. This was a bit of an interesting year for the show – for one thing, it lost two of its principle cast members to a newly launched spin-off, the familiar high school location was no more and the characters were officially adults. Times were moving on for Buffy, and the things that we had gotten used to were going to have to change.

Thus, the show moved onto the life of a Slayer at College, and the adventures that ensued. Adventures that are a little, well, daft at times. Don’t get me wrong – Season Four is by no means a failure, and does hit some serious heights on occasion. If anything, it lacks the consistency of Season Three and the brilliance of Season Two. »

Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2

26 September 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Once upon a time, there was a goofy little show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s first TV outing, a mid-season replacement that only contained 12 episodes, premiered to mixed responses. Whilst the potential was clearly there, it was easy to write it off as just a little too silly, a little too… odd. Nevertheless, it was granted a Season Two, which premiered on September 15th, 1997.

And this is where shit got serious.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 is truly a remarkable season of television. This is the year when the writers realised that not only were they making something special here, but that they were capable of producing some incredible content. Whilst the first half does maintain some of the less than impressive traits of Season One, such as poor quality filler episodes (containing mummies) and some rather rubbish bad guys (the zombie from episode 2 and literally everything to »

Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1

20 September 2017 1:54 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

“In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the Vampires, the Demons, and the Forces of Darkness. She is the Slayer.”

There must be about a million films, stories and TV related content that contains one particular scene. A vulnerable young woman, running for her life, terrified of whomever, or whatever, is pursuing her. She is utterly helpless to prevent her oncoming, horrible death – and most of the time is scantly clad. The scenario ends one of two ways – she either meets a terrible fate, or ends up getting saved by a dashing, Harrison Ford look alike male hero. Rinse, lather, repeat.

It once looked like that would be all we’d get from female characters in horror related productions. That was, until, a young writer came along named Joss Whedon, who decided that enough was enough. He had an idea of a young woman »

Sci-fi TV fans would love to see the Tardis land on the USS Enterprise one day, and while we’re still a way off from that ever happening, it turns out that the Doctor himself almost appeared in the Star Trek universe at one point.

Yes, that’s right. Outgoing Time Lord Peter Capaldi auditioned to play the lead role of Captain Benjamin Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. This intriguing bit of news comes courtesy of the trekdocs Twitter account, which unearths little-known facts about the series. This time, they’ve got hold of a list of actors who auditioned for the show from a UK casting call from back in 1992.

Doctor Who and tabloid rumours: when have they got it right?

23 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 24, 2017

When have tabloid rumours been spot on about Doctor Who, and when have they been, er, less accurate?

“Look Who's the Doc's new assistant!” On Tuesday, the Mirror's front page trumpeted an exclusive reveal that Bradley Walsh would be Jodie Whittaker's companion in the new series of Doctor Who.

See related  Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 questions answered Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 7 review: The Dragon And The Wolf

The one-time Sarah Jane Adventures guest star would be the first companion actor to have hosted a quiz show with the same name as a 1960s serial, but beyond trivia, the report has been fairly well received as far as we can see – Walsh is a decent actor, who's worked with incoming executive producer Chris Chibnall before on Law & Order UK, and a fun screen presence. But given the source, might it all be a load of bobbins? »

For the most part, ABC's summer programming focuses on reality TV series, like The Bachelorette and game shows like Celebrity Family Feud. Still, the Alphabet Network always makes a little room for summertime scripted series. Although Mistresses was cancelled after four seasons, last fall, the Downward Dog sitcom premiered in May, and the Somewhere Between drama series kicks off in July. Joining them is the Still Star-Crossed TV show. Will this Romeo and Juliet sequel be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned. A Shondaland TV series adaptation of Melinda Taub's novel, Still Star-Crossed stars Grant Bowler, Wade Briggs, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Lashana Lynch, Ebonee Noel, Medalion Rahimi, Zuleikha Robinson, Sterling Sulieman, Susan Wooldridge, and Anthony Head.

ABC Moves ‘Still Star-Crossed’ to Saturdays After 3 Low-Rated Episodes

22 June 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The end appears to be in sight for “Still Star-Crossed.”

Variety has confirmed that ABC is moving the freshman Shondaland drama from Mondays to Saturdays after just three episodes, an almost sure sign that the network will cancel the series after its first season. All three episodes of the show that have aired thus far have failed to make an impact in the Nielsen ratings, even with a “Bachelorette” lead-in. To date, the series is averaging just a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.95 million viewers per episode in live-plus-same day. It will begin airing on Saturdays on July 8.

Still Star-Crossed TV Review – Ya Shakespeare Meets Shonda Rhimes

29 May 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Still Star-Crossed, the novel by Melinda Taub, is an interesting and clever look at the world Shakespeare didn’t actually lay out all that distinctly in Romeo & Juliet.  It’s equal parts fan fiction and development cheat by appropriation, but it spins a decent yarn and delivers an updated sense of drama. It’s not only solid Ya entertainment, but it’s just the sort of effort we could use more of, both as an enticement to read more and backward entry into other literature.

Still Star-Crossed, the show, dresses up the idea wonderfully but renders it all rather lifeless by trying to out-drama itself at every turn in a decidedly Shondaland morass of overworked histrionics. Oddly, this manages, at points, to come full circle and become interesting again by offering up near-cornball drama in situations that actually require all the drama you would think you could muster.

Exclusive: 'Still Star-Crossed' Actress Previews Shonda Rhimes' New Romeo and Juliet Drama

26 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We all know the story of Romeo and Juliet's fleeting romance and tragic deaths, but what happens next has always been a mystery -- until now.

Inspired by the novel by Melinda Taub, ABC's new summer series, Still Star-Crossed, ramps up the action and drama after Romeo and Juliet die, and the treacherous feud between the Montague and Capulet families that continues to rage on. But another forbidden romance presents itself at the end of the premiere episode and that will certainly ruffle 17th century feathers as the season progresses.

"It's the ultimate romantic story about forbidden love and I think a lot of people can relate to that," actress Medalion Rahimi, who plays Princess Isabella, tells Et of the time-honored Romeo and Juliet tale. "The tragedy in the end -- I don't want to say that it's good to necessarily glorify young lovers' suicide -- but the idea that because of prejudice these young lovers »

TV Review: Shondaland’s ‘Still Star-Crossed’ on ABC

16 May 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On paper, the combination of Shondaland and Shakespeare is tantalizing: Both brands promise high drama, dangerous romance and memorable monologues. But “Still Star-Crossed,” from executive producer and writer Heather Mitchell and Shonda Rhimes’ production company, is a little too wispy and indistinct to make much of an impression. This drama, which continues the tale begun with the famous lovers’ deaths, is a melding that emphasizes surface bells and whistles without building on the solid foundation of nighttime soaps or the Bard’s depiction of the battle between the Montagues and Capulets.

The show has all the earnest energy — and stilted moments —you’d expect to find in a high-school play, albeit one with a uniformly swoon-worthy cast and an exceptional budget for candles and corsets. This new drama also recalls “Of Kings and Prophets,” a short-lived ABC program that premiered around the same time last year, during the annual spring/early summer TV yard sale, when »

‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report

21 April 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?

According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”
