Producer-Director Brooke Kennedy on Challenges of Moving From ‘The Good Wife’ to ‘The Good Fight’

Brooke Kennedy has produced hundreds of hours of television, much of it in New York City. But of all her experiences in the trenches, nothing quite compares to directing the first episode of “The Good Fight” at a Park Avenue location on the night of Nov. 8, as Donald Trump pulled off his stunning political upset in the presidential race.

As Christine Baranski and Delroy Lindo got to work on a particularly emotional scene in “The Good Wife” spinoff — which premieres Sunday on CBS All Access — Kennedy looked out and saw the darkness around the edges of the office-building set flecked with the blue-ish glow of smartphone screens.

“Everyone in the crew was on their phones, and you could start to read it on everybody’s face,” Kennedy recalls.

As horrified as Kennedy was on a personal level (she’s no Donald Trump fan), her first instinct was to protect the actors from the news to allow them

DC Comics Raises Prices Of Their Monthly Rebirth Titles And Adds Digital Codes

DC Comics has been drawing the line at $2.99 for the vast majority of their titles for some time now, and pretty much every comic book met that price point when Rebirth launched last year. Now, however, that’s set to change. While twice monthly seres like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lanterns and Deathstroke will stay at $2.99, the rest are getting an increase.

Sixteen monthly titles will be going up to $3.99 from this April, but on the plus side, readers will now receive a download code for a digital copy with each of these comics. Marvel was recently criticized for removing that option and instead offering fans back issues, so you have to believe that this is a very deliberate decision by DC Comics.

Among the books affected by this increase are Batgirl, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, Batman Beyond, Batwoman, Blue Beetle, Cyborg, The Hellblazer, New Super-Man, Red Hood and the Outlaws,

DC Comics to raise price for monthly Rebirth titles, will include digital codes

Well, the reduced price for DC Comics beginning with last year’s Rebirth titles certainly didn’t last long. As announced via press release, 15 monthly Rebirth titles will be increasing in price from $2.99 to $3.99.

There are two silver linings here. The first is that the twice-monthly titles – which include big name titles like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lanterns, and Deathstroke – will remain at the reduced price. The second is that the titles that are going up will now include digital codes. DC’s Senior Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing, John Cunningham, released the following statement:

“Giving readers value was a key component of our Rebirth initiative, and we’re continuing that commitment with this move. We’ve heard from many fans that they like to read and collect our books in both digital and print formats so this new offering gives DC readers the convenience and value pricing they asked for.

Manhattan, 2.04, “Overlord”

Manhattan, Season 2, Episode 4, “Overlord”

Written by Alexander Woo

Directed by Christopher Misiano

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on Wgn

“If it helps to pretend you’re me, pretend. It’s what I do.” Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer

The first three episodes of Manhattan‘s second season have largely focused on the disappearance of Frank Winter. While they have all been outstanding, the narrative has felt a little fragmented without all the characters on the Hill together. In “Overlord,” the story is still split between the goings on at Los Alamos and the fate of Frank, but it ultimately brings the implosion team—and the narrative—back together in a satisfying fashion.

“Overlord” refers to the code name for the Allies’ D-Day invasion at Normandy, which serves as the backdrop for this episode. But it’s also a reference to science chief J. Robert Oppenheimer, who experiences a dangerous case of cold feet,

'Revolution' Season 2, episode 15 - 'Dreamcatcher': Aaron enters the Matrix, does not know kung fu

The last episode of "Revolution" ended with Aaron trying to introduce a virus into the nanotech's code, effectively killing it. Naturally, it didn't take too kindly to that, sending all kinds of sparks flying and knocking him out.

When he comes to at the start of Wednesday's (March 5) episode, "Dreamcatcher," he's back in a world that had power, still married to Priscilla and running a big, fancy company (in Minneapolis, apparently, as his assistant kept asking if he wanted Timberwolves tickets and Neville's cheesy ads all featured a 612 area code). Of course, it isn't real -- the nano was running an elaborate virtual-reality program inside his head in an attempt to get him to fix the code once and for all.

Basically, then, Aaron is in the Matrix -- which the show at least had the decency to acknowledge following Charlie's surprise appearance there. (Aaron's bewildered "How do you know about that?

Dark Defender to Lumberjack: ‘Dexter’ in retrospect

“I just know there’s something dark in me and I hide it. I certainly don’t talk about it, but it’s there always, this…dark passenger. And when he’s driving, I feel alive, half sick with the thrill of complete wrongness.

I don’t fight him, I don’t want to. He’s all I’ve got. Nothing else could love me, not even… especially not me.

Or is that just a lie the Dark Passenger tells me? Because lately there are these moments when I feel connected to something else… someone. It’s like the mask is slipping and things… people… who never mattered before are suddenly starting to matter. It scares the hell out of me”

Dexter Morgan

The dichotomy – raging battle ongoing – that engulfs the core of the protagonist summarized in one shatteringly honest, beautifully troubled confession…to an AA meeting, where he is

'Dexter': Who's the best villain ever? Michael C. Hall and co-stars pick their favorite foes -- Poll
Dexter Morgan has been hiding in plain sight for eight seasons on Showtime, and throughout those years, a handful of people have challenged our antihero — but most didn’t live to tell the tale.

At last week’s PaleyFest farewell to Dexter, we asked the show’s cast and producer to name their favorite foes for the serial-killer-with-a-code. We heard one name quite a few times — the Dexter cast is still getting over the damage done by John Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell, a.k.a. The Trinity Killer, in season 4 — but a few answers might surprise you (is Dexter’s ultimate antagonist actually Deb?

Dexter Morgan just upgraded to his largest kill room yet.

Joining scheduled panelists were Desmond Harrington (Det. Quinn); Laura Velez (Maria Laguerta); Erik King (Sgt. James Doakes); Julie Benz (Rita Morgan); and Aimee Garcia (Jamie Batista).

‘Dexter: Season 7′ DVD Review

Stars: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Yvonne Strahovski, Ray Stevenson, David Zayas, Lauren Velez, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, James Remar

First, a confession: I haven’t seen a single episode of Dexter since I reviewed Season 4 way back when this site used to have another name – and even before then I’d only seen the odd few episodes from earlier seasons – before I watched this one.

The good news? It’s a show that can be dipped in and out of more or less as long as you watch it a season at a time, thanks to the semi-procedural cop show structure (who doesn’t get sucked into gruesome murders?) and yearly antagonists that usually embody the particular themes a season is trying to explore. I really like the show, and its premise – it’s about a forensic analyst who moonlights as a serial-killing serial killer (the magnetic Michael C. Hall

“Born in blood, both of us. Harry was right. I thought I could change what I am, keep my family safe. But it doesn’t matter what I do, what I choose. I’m what’s wrong. This is fate.”

Dexter Morgan first uttered that sad sentiment during Dexter‘s Season 4 finale, when, in his mind, they applied only to himself and the Showtime saga’s now-infamous Big Bad, Arthur “Trinity” Mitchell. In retrospect, however, said musings represented so much more, foreshadowing the tragic future ahead for the Dark Passenger and his sister Deb.

Dexter Season 7: Half-time Report Card

We’ve crossed the halfway point in Dexter Season 7. Here’s the current rundown on key characters and relationships, ranked by grade.

The Villain – Isaak Sirko (Ray Stevenson)

Starting with the Ice Truck Killer in Season 1, Dexter became known for its remarkable villains. However, that all came to an end after John Lithgow stole the show as Trinity in Season 4. Season 5 featured Jordan Chase (Jonny Lee Miller), a motivational speaker by day and sexual deviant by night. He was bland to say the least. Then, Season 6 hit us with the Doomsday curve ball – mark it just plain bad.

Season 7 finally takes us back to a villain we can truly fear. Not only is Isaak Sirko Russian mafia, he’s also wicked awesome in a fight. He’s the kind of boss who has no problems with getting his hands dirty. In Episode 7.5, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) put him behind bars.
