Colony Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Fallout

16 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The resistance is one man smaller, and it was already a mere trio.

Oh how I hate to use this term, but Colony Season 2 Episode 6 was a transitional hour. 

Things were heating up with what's left of the resistance; we were given a sneak peek into the boxes shipping to the Global Authority and learned Nolan doesn't know that much about The Greatest Day.

I'm sorry I missed an episode, but illness overtook me, and I wasn't even moving. Sadly, it was the one in which we lost Thora Birch as Morgan and had her replaced with Bethany Joy Lenz. What a joy, indeed!

Lenz gives the character some much-needed oomph, and the trio finally feels like a reasonable group for Broussard to be leaning on for his technical support. 

Even as I write that, though, I wonder why it never occurred to any of them that alien tech might »

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Alec Baldwin Proves There Are Two Types of Problems: Regular, And Trump

12 February 2017 8:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rumors swirled of President Trump’s unhappiness with last week’s Sean Spicer sketch. It’s not that he didn’t enjoy the sketch, per se, but despised the fact that a woman portrayed his Press Secretary. So, what if the President himself was portrayed by a middle-aged black woman, and not even a heavily disguised one at that? These are the questions “Saturday Night Live” has to ask, because every day comes a new, terrifying CNN push notification — and with it, an irrelevant tweet from the Commander-in-Chief. Even so, “SNL” didn’t stick to politics for the entire hour, and when they strayed from the news, it was often in error.

Host: Alec Baldwin

Live from New York, it’s Alec Baldwin’s historic 17th gig as host. It’s hard to believe he only began hosting in 1990, which happens to be three-plus years before cast member Pete Davidson was born. »

Park City — With chants of “Make America Great, Love Trumps Hate,” several hundred women and a cadre of supportive men took to the snow-bound streets here Saturday morning to protest the ascension of Donald J.

Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, highlighted diversity and female empowerment as part of its comeback at Wednesday’s slate preview in Culver City.

Morales, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to succeed the late Peter Parker in the comics, has already become a TV animation staple on Disney Xd’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” (initially voiced by Donald Glover).

The animated “Spider-Man” marks a return to Spa for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), who directed “The Lego Movie” and are currently making the “Han Solo” standalone “Star Wars” feature.

In a pre-recorded video message from London, Lord said, “What inspired us the most is that anyone can wear the mask. »
