We're entering into the sixth season of Once Upon a Time, and things are looking dicey - not just because the Evil Queen is on the loose, either. We were included in a group of journalists who got the opportunity to sit down with the show's cast at Comic-Con, and we got a lot of juicy details. Creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis teased a lot about what's coming up, including how Aladdin will be incorporated into the story and that it's "the year of Snowing." Check it out! How prominent will Aladdin and Jafar be in the new season? Adam Horowitz: At first, we get a taste of them in the premiere. It takes a little bit to see how the Aladdin world fits in with the story. Edward Kitsis: We left a lot of threads dangling last year, Jekyll and Hyde, the Evil Queen, so that »

NBC has canceled “Game of Silence” after just one season, TheWrap has learned. “Game of Silence” starred David Lyons, Michael Raymond James, Larenz Tatewill and Bre Blair as four friends with a dark secret. It was adapted by executive producer David Hudgins from the “Sleepers”-inspired Turkish TV series, “Suskunlar.” Rotten Tomatoes summed up all of the negative reviews for the show with a Critics Consensus blurb reading, “Competent acting and a sufficiently intriguing premise aren’t enough to make up for ‘Game of Silence’s’ unnecessarily convoluted, heavily clichéd storytelling.” Also Read: Mandy Moore-Milo Ventimiglia Dramedy 'This »

Rebecca Mader was as pleasantly surprised as anyone to recently learn that Once Upon a Time‘s resident wicked witch, Zelena, had a chance at life-long romance, with Underworld overlord Hades, but dismissed it because she felt unworthy.

On Game of Silence Raymond-James plays Gil, the loose cannon of his childhood friends seeking revenge for the wrongs done to them while in juvenile detention.

NBC’s “Game of Silence” is getting the cold shoulder from critics after its premiere on Tuesday. The show, which will regularly air Thursdays at 10 p.m., accumulated a 42 percent approval rating from critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes.

Adapted by exec producer David Hudgins from the Sleepers-inspired Turkish series Suskunlar, Game of Silence stars David Lyons (Revolution) as Jackson Brooks, a Houston attorney who, on the heels of adding a beautiful and successful fiancée to his life, »
Adapted from a Turkish series, “Game of Silence” tiptoes around the events that set the story in motion, setting up an elaborate revenge plot with an overabundance of twists, many of which don’t hold up to close scrutiny. In that regard, this serialized NBC drama — tonally similar to the program it replaces, “Shades of Blue” — is sort of an anti-binge proposition, where it’s easier to get drawn into the episodes if the viewing is spread out enough to overlook some of the absurdities.
The premise starts promisingly enough, and in a way, brings to mind “Stephen King’s It,” where a group of young teenage friends are brought together by a terrible ordeal, only to be forced to reassemble once they’re grown up. Here, it’s an accident that results in a quartet of 13-year-old boys being locked up in a juvenile facility, where they’re preyed upon by those in charge. »

What was good about this episode was pretty good, in that the Belle flashbacks answered some questions — including: How did she wind up married to such a tool? The B-story, however, involving Emma in fear of her dream basically idled for 37 minutes, until the final, curious payoff.
