Outlander: A Bold, Richly Imagined Adaptation

12 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here’s the thing about the novel, at least the first one in Diana Gabaldon’s series (and I say this understanding the instant hatred I will earn): it’s tripe. The bare-bones plot of Gabaldon’s series is fantastic – a fiery 1950′s nurse who time-travels back to 18th century Scotland, is plunged into the conflict there, and falls in love with a Scottish warrior? You’ve got romance, time-travel, a fantasy element, war, and not one but two wildly disparate time periods to draw on. It’s literary gold.

Which made it all the more disappointing that Gabaldon buried what could have been a genuinely gripping saga in over-ripe prose that relied largely on long, rambling descriptions of nature occasionally interspersed with actual events. The romantic dialogue, while passable, certainly didn’t leap off the page, and I was genuinely mystified after reading the first novel as to »

Foo Fighters unleash new album details: 'Sonic Highways' out in time for Thanksgiving

11 August 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eight songs, written and recorded in eight cities, eight different album covers for their eighth album: Foo Fighters are crazy for eights on their new album "Sonic Highways." The rock quintet, led by Dave Grohl, announced details on their new album today (Aug. 11), revealing that the Butch Vig co-produced set will be out by Black Friday: "Sonic Highways" will hit shelves on Nov. 10. With only a few songs on the album, it clocks in at 44-minutes, which would average out to about five-and-a-half minutes per song. (Hey, and 4+4=8!) The set shares the same name as Grohl's new HBO series, which takes a snapshot of famed recording studios in eight different cities -- Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C. The band wrote a new song in each stop, while Grohl and his video team would film the recording process and interviews with supporting characters along the way. »

15 ways 'Outlander' is secretly 'Battlestar Galactica' all over again

9 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The press around Outlander, which premieres on Starz Saturday night but has already released its pilot on Youtube to nearly one million views, has been very positive—and often filled with caveats that it’s “feminist fantasy,” or at least directed at female audiences.

People have made much of the genre shift showrunner Ronald D. Moore made by going from his best-known previous project, the sci-fi epic Battlestar Galactica, to Outlander. The latter, an adaption of Diana Gabaldon’s book series, follows Claire Randall, a World War II nurse sent back in time to 18th-century Scotland. It panders to audiences who like attractive Scottish men, »

‘Outlander': Ron Moore on Adapting the Bestseller for Starz, Dispelling ‘Game of Thrones’ Comparisons

6 August 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are few figures in the realm of genre TV as respected as “Outlander” executive producer Ron Moore, the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed revival of “Battlestar Galactica” and a sci-fi stalwart whose previous credits include “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager,” along with cult favorites like “Roswell” and “Carnivàle.”

After taking a beloved (but admittedly cheesy) ’70s space romp like “Battlestar” and imbuing it with cinematic scope, pathos, and philosophical and theological ruminations about the very nature of what it means to be human, it makes sense that Moore succeeded in adapting what, at first blush, seemed un-adaptable — a sprawling series of novels that blend historical fiction with time travel, romance, adventure and political intrigue. “Outlander” is based on the first of eight bestselling books penned by Diana Gabaldon, following the journey of 20th century army nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and 18th century Scottish »

Katherine Heigl Questioned About Being "Difficult" -- What'd She Say?

14 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's the question everybody wanted to ask -- and it got so awkward when someone finally did.Katherine Heigl had no choice but to address rumors of her "difficult" reputation at the 2014 TCA Press Tour on Sunday, where she was promoting her new show, "State of Affairs."Katherine and her mother, Nancy Heigl, who serves as an executive producer on the upcoming NBC series, have a reputation for being "difficult to work with." So, is there any truth to that?"I can only say that I certainly don't see myself as being difficult and I don't intend to be difficult," the "Roswell" alum said. "I don't think my mother sees herself as being difficult. I think it's always important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly. So if I have ever disappointed somebody, it was never intentional." When asked about a recent interview in which she said »

Interview: Luke Macfarlane on “The Night Shift,” Gay Military Couples, “Brothers & Sisters” & More

30 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

If you’ve been watching NBC’s new hospital drama The Night Shift, we’ve heard mention of Rick, the Bf of semi-closeted Drew (Brendan Fehr). In this week’s episode we finally get to meet him, and it’s not under the best circumstances.

In the episode, Rick is brought into the hospital for more of a medical than personal reason and Drew is immediately not comfortable having his personal life crash up against his professional life, where he’s tried very hard to keep the fact that he’s gay close to the vest.

Luke Macfarlane plays Rick and the Brothers & Sisters alum talked to TheBacklot about the role, how gay couples in the military handle their relationship, working with Fehr as well as what else he’s been up to.  Let’s check in with one of our favorite out actors.

Brendan Fehr on Gay "Night Shift" Role: "I Was a Little Uncomfortable"

25 June 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Roswell" alum Brendan Fehr has a new gig as a gay doctor on "The Night Shift" -- a role he admits he was "really uncomfortable" taking on at first.While fans of the NBC drama will have to wait until next week to finally meet his character's on-screen boyfriend, played by Luke MacFarlane, Fehr recently talked with toofab's Brian Particelli about filming his first man-on-man kiss and revealed what attracted him to the role of Drew."It was the challenge of portraying Drew," he says. "I think it was the risks involved as well. To play a homosexual on network television, what are the risks? There's a whole bunch of them. What are the rewards? Not as many. I just felt like I had something to offer.""I've never defined myself as being straight, what defines me is who I am, what I believe, the choices I make and how I treat people, »

Julie Benz takes her “Defiance” character down a darker path in Season 2

12 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

By Eric Kohanik Somehow, the future never seems to be pretty in the world of science-fiction TV shows. And Julie Benz says there are good reasons for that. “I think, with the sci-fi genre, we’re able to explore issues that we’re all faced with today,” the 42-year-old actress points out. “We’re able to explore them in a deeper, darker way.” Benz is no stranger to the deeper, darker realm of the horror/thriller/sci-fi genre. Perhaps still best known for her role as Rita on Dexter, her TV credits also include such other gems as Roswell, Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and … Continue reading →

'Roswell' 15-year cast reunion photo

8 June 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Atx Television Festival staged a 15-year anniversary reunion of The WB’s Roswell on Sunday. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were reportedly there, along with creator Jason Katims. The sci-fi series debuted 1999 and ran for three seasons (the last on Upn) before getting axed due to soft ratings in 2002. At one point in its run, fans sent The WB Tabasco sauce (which the show’s aliens liked to eat) to try and sway the network to keep the show going.

‘Roswell’ Reunion: Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr and Jason Katims Reminisce at Atx TV Festival

8 June 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

15 years after The WB/Upn’s “Roswell” first premiered, the cast and creator reunited at the Atx Television Festival in Austin to regale a packed theater with their memories of filming the cult alien drama. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were on hand, along with creator Jason Katims and several hundred fans who eagerly crammed themselves into the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a trip back to the eventful New Mexico town.

In a surreal turn, “Jersey Shore” star NicoleSnooki” Polizzi — apparently a diehard fan of the short-lived but much-beloved series — flew in from the East Coast specifically to attend the reunion panel, and even asked a question during the Q&A. (The reality star asked whether the cast believes in aliens — Appleby and Delfino said yes, for the record.)

Brendan Fehr Talks The Night Shift, Research for the Role, Roswell 15th Anniversary, and More

6 June 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The toughest and craziest cases always seem to come through the door on the night shift, which is certainly true for San Antonio Hospital on the new NBC drama series The Night Shift.  Saving lives is a huge challenge in an underfunded hospital, so the team of adrenaline junkies who do just that, on a nightly basis, push the rules as far and as creatively as they can.  From show creators Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, the show stars Eoin Macken, Freddy Rodriguez, Jill Flint, Ken Leung, Brendan Fehr, Robert Bailey Jr., Jeananne Goossen, Daniella Alonso and Jr Lemon. During this exclusive with Collider, actor Brendan Fehr (who plays Drew, a former Army medic turned doctor) talked about how he came to be a part of the show, how much fun he’s had developing the character dynamic, the research he did for the role, being as genuine as possible »

Why a Roswell Reunion Movie Will (Probably) Never Happen

6 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Oh I am what I am." Is there still life in Roswell, the WB's beloved cult series that ended in 2002 (with a few stains from the thousands of Tabasco sauce bottles being sent to the network in an effort to save it from cancellation)?  According to some of the series' stars, the short answer is no.  Creator Jason Katims and cast members Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler and Brendan Fehr are set to participate in a reunion panel at the 2014 Atx TV Festival in Austin on Saturday. But before the on-stage reunion, the two stars, who played human Kyle Valenti and alien Michael Guerin respectively, chatted with E! News about why they can't see a Roswell reboot happening, even if reunions »

Watch: Foo Fighters Docuseries ‘Sonic Highways’ Gets Teaser

1 June 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Foo Fighters fans have a lot to look forward to this year: the band’s 20th anniversary, their upcoming eighth studio album and, now, an HBO docuseries.

HBO released the first teaser for the Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl docuseries and revealed its title, “Sonic Highways,” on Saturday. The series will follow the band as they travel across the country to record at eight legendary studios, conducting interviews with musicians along the way and chronicling the cities’ musical roots.

“It all started with the idea of recording at different studios all over the country,” says Grohl’s voiceover in the trailer. “Doing something to make it new. You can tie all of these people and places together with these sonic highways. This is a musical map of America.”

Grohl will host and direct. He also directed the 2013 Sundance documentary “Sound City,” which inspired the docuseries. It followed the history of the »

“The Night Shift” 1.01 “Coming Out Is Not An Option”

28 May 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Deja Vu. That’s what I kept experiencing last night watching NBC’s “Summer Series … aka we’re burning it off after the regular season” hospital drama The Night Shift. It’s not that it’s completely terrible, it’s just so familiar and paint-by-numbers. Okay, maybe it is terrible. Let’s count the cliches

Eoin Macken plays leading man rebel with a cause T.C., who is cool and badass. How do we know? He drives a motorcycle, is always hotly unkempt, and doesn’t care about your goddam rules! He’s also a former Army doctor, and served in Afghanistan, but was kicked out under mysterious circumstances. And he gets shirtless.

Freddy Rodriguez is completely wasted in the thankless role of the hospital bean counter, who will cut costs no matter how many innocent babies don’t get treated. We also get a couple of new interns who »

Review: NBC's 'The Night Shift' brought down by its obnoxious doctor hero

27 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Years ago at the Ledger, I did an occasional feature called "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words" where, in lieu of writing a review of some terrible show or TV-movie, I would simply select a publicity still that in some way captured its terribleness, thus allowing me to devote my time to writing about something better. With NBC's new hospital drama "The Night Shift" (it premieres tonight at 10), I was sorely tempted to revive that tradition because... well, look at that picture attached to this review. That is perhaps the single most terrible publicity photo I have ever seen for a television show. Worse than anything associated with "The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer," worse than the "girls club" image that made its stars look like they were appearing on the cover of a pornographic VHS tape. It's hilarious because most of the actors were not only clearly Photoshopped »

Dave Grohl Directing HBO Series Chronicling the Making of Foo Fighters’ Latest Album

15 May 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Musician Dave Grohl made his directorial debut last year with the fascinating music documentary Sound City, and now it looks like we don’t have to wait long to see his directorial follow-up.  It was announced today that Grohl will be directing an untitled documentary series for HBO that chronicles the making of the eighth album from his band Foo Fighters.  This won’t simply be a music series, however, as the aim is to tap into both the musical heritage and cultural fabric of eight cities—Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC, and New York—as the band records songs in studios unique to each location.  Foo Fighters will be enlisting guests from each city to play on the songs recorded there, and in the TV series Grohl will sit down for interviews with the participants. It’s unclear when the series will air on HBO, »
