On Wednesday, Dec. 4, with the premiere of acclaimed filmmaker Frank Darabont's "Mob City," TNT brings the classic gangster drama to Tinseltown, which does have the gritty urban landscapes of New York and Chicago, the sandy beaches and palm trees of Miami and Havana, the tall buildings and neon signs of Las Vegas, and even snow (miles away on mountaintops, that is).
When it's pointed out Los Angeles isn't associated with the mob as much as other cities, Darabont tells Zap2it, "Well, all the more reason to tell the story of the mob that was, because it's a largely unexplored area. You've seen lots of stories about the mob in Chicago and New York back East.
"It's a lesser-known bit of history now, but it was very prevalent, it was fascinating, what was going on. I didn't even know the extent of it, until I read John Buntin's book, »

It was Rebecca that made me pay attention to The Mentalist. I had never seen the CBS crime drama starring Simon Baker until the eighth episode of season 2. “His Red Right Hand” was the one where a secretary in the Sacramento offices of the California Bureau of Investigation shot Sam Bosco (Terry Kinney) and two other agents on behalf of a serial killer — Red John, a brilliant phantom with a blood-drawn smiley face insignia, powerful influence and connections, and a scores of similarly brain-sick and unnervingly gleeful devotees.
In the last act, an assassin — presumably Red John himself; we never »

TNT‘s upcoming Mob City (Dec. 4) has released new key art, and basically the show is laying its cards on the table… do with that what you will. It’s a show that builds in as much audience as it might hope for just by putting Frank Darabont on display, and it even throws in some actors from The Walking Dead for good measure.
Of course, it also has the mob, Ed Burns, and takes place in the ’40s (period is popular).
But, just in case that isn’t enough… well, it has this poster.

Things are getting tough for Annie on "Covert Affairs." After all, the death of Henry Wilcox's mole has been discovered and the race is on to make sure that the show's hero doesn't go to jail for murder.
That could be tricky, now that the FBI is investigating Seth Newman's death. These five clues about "Space (I Believe In") show just how tricky everything is.
Warning: Minor "Covert Affairs" spoilers lie ahead. Proceed with caution.
In the episode, Annie (Piper Perabo) has to infiltrate the FBI investigation herself if she wants to keep the truth hidden. Her efforts might be somewhat complicated, however, when Henry (Gregory Itzin) offers Annie the opportunity of a lifetime. The result of all of this is tension -- lots of racing-against-the-clock, high-drama tension. It's excellent.
