The Catch Series Finale Recap: Mockingbird Really Revealed

11 May 2017 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When ABC cancelled The Catch Thursday, it effectively changed Ben and Alice’s fate from fun-and-kicky! to tragically unresolved.

The Season 2 finale — which now will serve as a series finale — ends with Ben hopping a private jet out of the country to avoid getting hauled in by the FBI (led by a very ticked-off Justine). And when Alice decides to stay behind, the pair promises to see each other as soon as possible, then she watches wistfully as Ben takes off for less-illegal pastures.

American Crime Cancelled at ABC

11 May 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

American Crime is no longer paying at ABC: The network has cancelled John Ridley’s Emmy-winning anthology drama after three seasons.

The series was never a ratings powerhouse for ABC, but its Season 3 ratings were particularly woeful; it wrapped its run on April 30 with an anemic 2 million viewers and a 0.4 demo rating. But Crime was arguably ABC’s most acclaimed drama of the past few years, snagging consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Limited Series and back-to-back wins for star Regina King.

Movie Review – The Journey (2016)

4 May 2017 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Journey, 2016.

Directed by Nick Hamm.

Starring Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, Toby Stephens, John Hurt and Freddie Highmore.


In the middle of the Northern Ireland power sharing discussions of 2006, Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness find themselves sharing a car to the airport.  The two are sworn enemies, on a political and personal level, but on this journey they take a huge leap of faith and change the course of their country forever.

The death of Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness at the start of the year has given Nick Hamm’s The Journey a topicality it could never have expected.  But there’s a reference in the film that makes what we’re watching, and its historical background, even more relevant.  McGuinness (Colm Meaney) tells Paisley (Timothy Spall) to his face that, during The Troubles, he was the most popular politician in Europe – “and the most extreme. »

The Journey Review

2 May 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

The Journey might well be described as a project that’s close to home for director Nick Hamm. He grew up in Belfast, and has chosen to revisit the territory for his eighth feature film, which depicts the relationship between life-long political enemies Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness towards the end of The Troubles in 2006. Taking some poetic license but based in fact, the film imagines a journey the two politicians make from Glasgow to Edinburgh Airport in order to catch a plane, and what they might have discussed along the way.

The premise is a familiar one, likely inspired by Stephen Frears’ The Queen and Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech, but this time the execution is unfortunately poor, and the film suffers from its meandering pace. It also seems somehow afraid of its source material, tiptoeing around the atrocities that occurred in Northern Ireland »

Strike Deadline Looms, But TV’s Scripted Peak May Have Already Passed

1 May 2017 5:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A&E’s “Bates Motel” was prime peak TV. The drama, which ended a five-season run with last week’s finale, had all the vital elements of the series that have typified TV’s golden age: a top-flight showrunner (Carlton Cuse), critical acclaim (“splendid central performances,” said Variety), and stars who migrated from movies in search of meatier roles (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore). It was an ambitious step into scripted programming for A&E. But it was not a successful one.

The cable channel last week revealed that it would abandon its scripted aspirations, shifting resources to the unscripted programming with which it has long been identified. The move follows similar steps taken this year at channels such as Wgn America and MTV, which have very publicly waved their own white flags at scripted competitors. With a possible writers’ strike looming, programmers may soon have the opportunity to rethink expensive scripted programming strategies. In »

Meet the new Ofglen, decidedly not the same as the old Ofglen.

Just when we’d fallen in love with Offred’s subversive new pal, Episode 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale yanks her away. While I’d love to envision Moira and Ofglen and any other Gilead escapee possibly rallying help up north, you just know they’re probably enduring something painful somewhere awful.

Whatever excruciating fate befalls the Mia ‘maids, however, I’m sure it’s nowhere near as weird as what transpires in Commander »

Performer of the Week: Freddie Highmore

29 April 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Freddie Highmore

The Show | Bates Motel

The Episode | “The Cord” (April 24, 2017)

The Performance | Throughout the superlative A&E drama’s five-season run, Highmore has slayed us over and over again not just by revealing the depths of the mental illness that transformed Norman into his “psycho” Mother but by doing so without ever letting us forget the sweet boy trapped in the prison of his own warped mind. In the series’ heartbreaking final episode, the actor — infuriatingly never Emmy-nominated — took a last “stab” at it, delivering a performance that could only be described as killer.
