Emmanuelle Chriqui Talks Cleaners Season 2, Online TV Programming, and Collaborating On Her Character

Season 2 of the high-stakes, action-packed Crackle series Cleaners follows the equally gorgeous and lethal contract killers Veronica (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Roxie (Emily Osment) to a small island in the Caribbean where they think they are about to cash in, only to realize they have not yet escaped their past or Mother (Gina Gershon). The show also stars David Arquette, Missi Pyle, Esai Morales, Omar Avila, David Rees Snell and John Savage. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Emmanuelle Chriqui (who is also an executive producer on the series) talked about how she came to be a part of Cleaners, how exciting it is to be a part of the new frontier of original programming, how daunting the stunt work is in such a limited amount of time, collaborating on the development of the story and characters, what made Emily Osment the perfect Roxie, and why they decided to change

Greatest TV Finales: The Shield ‘Family Meeting’ brings the Strike Team to “justice”

The Shield, “Family Meeting

Written by Shawn Ryan

Directed by Clark Johnson

Original airdate November 25, 2008

For seven seasons The Shield displayed some of the most vile people doing increasingly desperate things. As fascinating as it all was there was an understanding, even from the pilot, things just weren’t going to end well for the majority of the characters involved.

From the very beginning Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) was far from a good man: we’d watched him kill a fellow officer, set up a massive robbery, lie and manipulate Strike Team members who trusted him, and countless other crimes that were horrifying and unimaginable.

The final season of The Shield saw Vic scrambling to hang onto the very fragile world he’d created as old lies come to light. His ex-wife Corrine (Cathy Cahlin Ryan) has learned of his crimes and agrees to work with Dutch (Jay Karnes) and

Sons of Anarchy Welcomes Cch Pounder, Its Sixth Veteran of The Shield

Once again, Kurt Sutter has revealed his bitter reluctance to let go of his days as a writer on The Shield. Though the former FX series ended back in 2008 and Sutter had moved on to starting up and running his own show on FX, he has been bringing back the stars of The Shield for little guest spots on Sons of Anarchy for years. At some point you just have to let things go. If Jack from Lost can learn to let go, certainly Sutter can finally release the death grip he has on the days he spent writing on The Shield. Alas, Sutter has brought yet another Shield alum to Soa.

I would recommend Sutter find some counseling before he starts asking Michael Chiklis to do a guest spot. In the meantime, Cch Pounder will be guest starting on Season 6 of Soa, reports EW. She’ll have a multi-episode arc as Tyne Patterson,

Last Resort, Ep 1.04: “Voluntold” brings pressure to the boiling point for some characters

Last Resort, Season 1, Episode 4: “Voluntold”

Written by Patrick Massett and John Zinman

Directed by Steven DePaul

Airs Thursdays at 8pm (Et) on ABC

Ever since the premiere of Last Resort, the issues and factors that have affected the USS Colorado have all happened in quick succession. In the span of a week, the submarine’s crew have found themselves going from respectable members of American society to international criminals, caught between a rock and a hard place, and going up against an adversary who is not only much more powerful, but whose orders they unquestioningly obeyed until very recently. The death of Redman at the hands of Serrat has only served to heighten the tension, so a boiling point spillover was inevitable, and the Us government’s attempts to accelerate the process not exactly helping. This episode sees some of the effects on a few characters who have been

Last Resort, Ep 1.01: “Captain” promises Shawn Ryan’s most ambitious show to date

Last Resort, Season 1, Episode 1: “Captain”

Written by Karl Gajdusek and Shawn Ryan

Directed by Martin Campbell

Airs Thursdays at 8pm (Et) on ABC

FX’s cop series The Shield stands as a classic television show, giving viewers complex storylines, three dimensional characters that couldn’t be easily categorized as either good or evil, and performances by the likes of Glenn Close and Anthony Anderson that made people regard them in a new light. While this is show creator Shawn Ryan’s most well-known show, and deservedly so, he is by no means a one-trick pony; he subsequently went on to create two more excellent series in Terriers and The Chicago Code, neither of which, sadly, saw a second season. Thankfully for television fans, Ryan hasn’t gotten discouraged; rather, he’s gotten right back in the saddle, signing a deal with Sony even as The Chicago Code was on its last legs.

Stacking Up The Dead: ‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner Glen Mazzara Previews Season 3 – ‘Pace Will Feel Like A Freight Train’

Are you still buzzing about the Season 2 finale of The Walking Dead? Good, because we are too. Well know that Season 3 is already in full bloom.

Mazzara took time out of prepping Season 3 to answer burning questions the press had about the Season 2 finale and what to look forward to in season 3. There are light spoilers ahead but nothing that would ruin the experience of next season. What follows is a compilation of two extensive conference calls with Mazzara about The Walking Dead that BuzzFocus participated in. There are Two pages of Q&A. Many of your concerns are addressed in the following piece and if anything, should keep the flame burning brightly for Season 3.

The Shield: 10 Years On

(Please Note: This article looks back at the entire run of The Shield, making occasional spoilers somewhat inevitable)

When The Shield first appeared out of the blue on March 12th 2002, many were quick to immediately dismiss it. On first glance it seemed like just another routine cop drama, featuring yet another cliché maverick cop who refused to play by the rules. The fact that it was on FX didn’t help either – a then low-key cable network with little experience in producing its own original drama and better known for showing re-runs of shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer and The X Files. To make matters worse, for UK audiences the show ended up in a late-night slot on Channel 5, which back then still had a reputation for peddling softcore porn and dodgy films.

Anyone who tuned in to the pilot episode was quick to find out that this wasn

Kurt Sutter Talks Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Finale and What's Coming in Season 5

Kurt Sutter Talks Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Finale and What's Coming in Season 5
FX aired the explosive Season 4 finale of Sons of Anarchy on Tuesday, December 6, which raises a lot of questions for Season 5 next year. Series creator Kurt Sutter recently held a conference call to discuss the fallout from this finale, Episode 4.14: To Be, Act 2, and here's what he had to say below.

So, 'Opie' lost his wife and his father because of the club, and 'Jax' has lost his father; his son was kidnapped, and 'Tara' was injured. Why is it that these guys can stay so loyal to the club despite being-it seems to be bent on destroying them?

Kurt Sutter: I think ultimately, as we've talked about with some of the characters-but I think it's really for the most part it's all these guys know. And for me it's the crux of the drama-at least with 'Jax'-is he was raised in this world, and it's all he knows,

Haunting at the Beacon and Feeding that Horror Itch: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Michael Stokes.

Every Halloween this reviewer needs to see a horror film everyday or every other day. Satisfying this horror fix is Michael Stokes' A Haunting at the Beacon aka The Beacon. This is a film released on DVD September 13th and starring are Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), David Rees Snell ("The Shield") and Michael Ironside. Haunting at the Beacon is perfect for this holiday of souls because the writing is tense, the characters are interesting and the climax made this reviewer look twice. It is hard not to look twice when you see Ironside snarling in icky green face paint.

Polo plays Bryn Shaw a woman dealing with grief and the loss of her son. Unfortunately, she picks a haunted apartment building to find solace. A young boy appears in a black and white photograph as a ghostly figure. Later, he sneers with devilish eyes.

TV Review: Sons Of Anarchy 4.1 – Out

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

So firstly something of an apology is due. For those following the coverage of Season 3 currently airing in the U.K on Five U.S, you’ll have noticed the reviews being mysteriously absent from the site over the last few weeks. Thanks to Channel 5s scheduling clashing with the U.S premier of the brand new season, the decision was made to focus on the new episodes rather than a season that first aired almost over a year ago.

With that out of the way, so begins our weekly coverage of FX’s brand new season of their superb biker drama – with Samcro’s prodigal son Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) planning to finally leave the club for once and for all. A mix of macho action and almost Shakespearian drama, Sons Of Anarchy continues to be an excellent show with gripping storyline and great performances

'Haunting at the Beacon' Review

by Michael Pickle, MoreHorror.com

I value the service I provide here at MoreHorror. I would like to think that I help some of our readers in their search for good horror. I've been told that I succeeded on a few occasions and it makes me feel downright giddy. The other service I provide comes with a hint of sadness. That is the service of informing horror fans about films that are a potential waste of their time. Time that can be better spent on the abundance of great films that the horror genre has to offer. Haunting at the Beacon is one of those that comes with a warning. It's not a complete waste of time, but most of it is.

This ho-hum haunting opens with young couple Bryn and Paul Shaw (Teri Polo, David Rees Snell) moving to the Beacon Apartments trying to recoup from the loss of their 4 year old son.

Sons of Anarchy: Recap Videos and a Look at Season 4

Don't look now, but the fall TV season is about to kick off in a big way with the fourth season premiere of FX's Sons of Anarchy.

After three seasons of dealing with the Ira, fending off other clubs trying to hone in on their business, and attempting to navigate some especially tense inter-club politics, the boys (of Samcro) are back in town for another go around. Jumping ahead 14 months from the end of season three, season four picks up with the club being released from prison, into a world with no Stahl and no Jimmy O. It will, however, include guest appearances from Danny Trejo (Grindhouse), David Rees Snell (The Shield), and Benito Martinez (The Shield), among others. Rockmond Dunbar (Terriers) will be joining the cast as the new sheriff in town (literally), with Lamonica Garrett (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) playing his deputy.

Sons Of Anarchy Season 4 Casting

  • Boomtron
New castings on FX’s Sons of Anarchy’s fourth season are leading to a reunion for some of the former actors of The Shield, starting with the season premiere. That first episode, which airs Sept. 6 with feature David Rees Snell (Det. Ronnie Gardocki on The Shield) playing an Atf agent investigating Samcro now that they’ve been let out of prison. The boys had better stay away from guns, booze and smoking while they have this guy sniffing his noise in their business.

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Extended Promo

In the second episode of the season, Benito Martinez (Capt. David Aceveda on The Shield) will be on the opposite side of the law compared to Snell. He’ll be the right-hand man of the Mexican drug cartel Samcro will be working with. I’m sure Martinez will have fun doing this role after playing law enforcement on The Shield for seven years.
