‘Law & Order: Svu’ Takes on Fox News Scandals in Latest Episode ‘The Newsroom’

‘Law & Order: Svu’ Takes on Fox News Scandals in Latest Episode ‘The Newsroom’
The “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” episode that aired Wednesday night played partly as wish fulfillment, but then again, that’s one of the functions of a crime procedural: To make sure the audience knows that the bad guys will almost always get what’s coming to them, thanks to law enforcement teams that never waver in their commitment to justice.

That the real world doesn’t always work this way is a given. We often look to our entertainment to supply the storylines we wish existed; we don’t always want TV dramas that reflect the harsh, painful unpredictabilities and routine injustices that reality often provides.

And so in “Svu’s” latest ripped-from-the-headline episode, a powerful man, Harold Coyle (Christopher McDonald) went to jail for the rape of a co-worker. The 18 months he got doesn’t seem like a lot, but the wrap-up to this installment of the long-running procedural noted that the network Coyle ran

'Law & Order: Svu' Sets Cast for Roger Ailes-Inspired Episode

Just as Fox News finds itself in the midst of another round of sexual harassment controversy, Law & Order: Svu is firming up its own take on the cable news network.

Christopher McDonald (Thelma and Louise), Bonnie Somerville (Friends) and Mark Moses (Mad Men) are set to headline an April episode of the NBC procedural seemingly inspired by the Roger Ailes scandal that led to the longtime chief's departure.

The episode, titled "The Newsroom," is described as follows: "Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Barba (Raúl Esparza) ask witnesses to put their jobs on the line after a news anchor (Somerville) makes an on-air disclosure of...

'Mr Robot' Recap: The Woman Behind the Curtain

'Mr Robot' Recap: The Woman Behind the Curtain
Well, damn.

Apparently all Mr. Robot needed to shock the crap out of us again was to take a break from Elliot and his Mind Palace. After last week's disappointing "Brain prison has been real prison all along!" episode, the show leaves the be-hoodied boy wonder off camera entirely to focus on the other Alderson sibling: the magnetic but mysterious Darlene. And lest you thought all the crazy wound up on her brother's side of the gene pool, boy, have we got a tale for you.

‘Mr. Robot’ Recap: Tensions Rise in an Unusual Hour

‘Mr. Robot’ Recap: Tensions Rise in an Unusual Hour
Do not read on unless you have seen “eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12,” the eighth episode of the second season of “Mr. Robot.”

I wrote a piece earlier today on “Mr. Robot” (and “UnReal”) and the bumpy second seasons both have had. But I also wanted to offer a few thoughts on tonight’s episode, which, like last week’s installment, was generally very strong. Last week, we essentially got two episodes in one, a completely bonkers (yet wonderfully disturbing) sitcom, and a sleek heist thriller.

This week, it was “All About the Scooby Gang,” or a depiction of the worsening situation members of fsociety are enduring in the wake of the E Corp hack, plus we got updates on Angela and the indomitable Agent Dom Dipierro. There was no Elliot at all; no voiceovers and no delusions. As a change of pace and a chance to fill out some of the show’s most frequent recurring

Last Week’S Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Gives Us A Literal Garbage Fire

In Elliot’s Head, Two’s A Crowd

Having revealed that Elliot has been in prison, with his release imminent, you might think that this week’s installment would drop him back into the world and start moving all of the various storylines towards a convergence, or at least the start of a new phase. But Elliot and Mr. Robot are nowhere to be seen, nor are Tyrell or Joanna Wellick; instead we get an fsociety-centric episode.

Some Kind Of A Revolutionary

With the stars of the show taking a break, we get more time with Mobley (Azhar Khan) and Trenton (Sunita Mani). In a flashback to the beginning of the series we see their hacker version of a meet-cute, which involves her pwning him while waiting to meet Elliot. Instead, it’s Darlene who arrives, and reads

Review: How does 'Mr. Robot' get through an entire episode without Elliot?

Review: How does 'Mr. Robot' get through an entire episode without Elliot?
A review of tonight's Mr. Robot coming up just as soon as I create an Angelfire fan page... "I didn't know I could do that." -Darlene A year ago, an episode like "Successor" — in which Elliot is entirely absent, along with his eponymous alter ego, while the focus is almost entirely on Darlene and her remaining comrades — would have been unthinkable. In season 1, Elliot was the show, and vice versa, and most of fsociety barely registered as more than vague shapes lingering on the edge of the frame (which, given the framing of Mr. Robot, rendered them particularly obscure). At this stage of season 2, though, it mostly works. It's not even that Mobley or Trenton or Cisco have transformed into vivid and exciting characters (though we're at least at the point where I remember their names), but that after spending so much time this summer inside Elliot's head — up to

Electric Entertainment Acquires Tribeca hit Fear, Inc. ; Release Set For This October!

Having made some waves at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, the Vincent Masciale-helmed Fear, Inc. has found a home with Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, which plans a VOD release on October 21st. The film revolves around a group of people who sign up for a game that helps you realize and confront your deepest and darkest fears, just to find out it just might be more than they bargained for.

Personally, I dig these types of films. It’s fun to see people play games that don’t quite end up going great for them, that’s my cup of tea.

“This is a fun film that horror audiences will be drawn to this Halloween season. Vincent Masciale and Luke Barnett have delivered an over-the-top feast for genre fans who like their scares to come with a large dose of comedy,” said Devlin.

Exclusive: Composers James S. Levine & Jim Dooley reveal new main title score for TNT’s The Last Ship

TNT’s American post-apocalyptic drama television series The Last Ship is getting a new Main Title score for Season 3 thanks to the show’s composers James S. Levine and Jim Dooley.

Discussing the new Main Title Jim Dooley says, “As our story evolves we wanted our main title to do the same, as we experience new places and characters as they struggle to save humanity.”

James S. Levine goes on to say “Season 3’s Main Title is specific to the intrigue and transcontinental journey we take with the virus and our soldiers. The score for season 3 helps create tension and unease as their is a governmental power struggle in America after Captain Chandler must travel abroad to help contain the virus. We used various ethnic elements along with some very aggressive and unique contemporary sounds in an effort to create a dark and driving military score!”
