TV Review: ‘Westworld’

15 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A beautifully restored old train deposits visitors in Sweetwater, a manufactured Old West town and the central settlement within “Westworld,” the role-playing resort in which paying customers can bring their most elaborate fantasies to life, setting out on frontier adventures or staying in the saloons to whoop it up.

But like a train, this drama runs on predictable tracks, and no matter how luxurious the trappings of the journey, the destination is obvious from miles away. “Westworld” looks terrific; its directors have shot its Western locations to stunning effect. But its warmly saturated outdoor scenes and its surface slickness aren’t enough to mask the indecision, condescension, and hollowness at its core.

Sometimes a drama contains opposing ideas that give it an enticing tension, but the contradictory impulses of “Westworld” fight each other in ways that detract from the show’s fitful momentum and thematic ambitions. It has a few nebulous ideas about the nature of memory »

Review: CBS' 'MacGyver' remake doesn't seem to want to be 'MacGyver' at all

23 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My friend and co-author Matt Zoller Seitz would always respond to news of someone remaking a classic movie or TV show with a groan, followed by his familiar but always entertaining treatise on how the smartest thing anyone could choose to remake was something that was mediocre, or worse, but had a great core idea that hadn't been properly exploited. He liked to point to David Cronenberg's '80s version of The Fly, or later the Edward James Olmos incarnation of Battlestar Galactica, as proof that there was more room to maneuver when the original didn't make the most out of what it was about. The original MacGyver doesn't quite qualify for Matt's theory, but it's close. The '80s ABC drama — starring Richard Dean Anderson as a spy of sorts who could solve any problem with a combination of basic science knowledge, his trusted Swiss Army knife, duct tape, »

Designated Survivor Review: POTUSing Comes Too Easily for Kiefer Sutherland

16 September 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kiefer Sutherland’s new ABC drama Designated Survivor boasts the highest of high concepts: What if a low-level government schlub was thrust into the Presidency following a deadly attack? It’s an instantly gripping premise (previously mined by Battlestar Galactica), but a tricky one to pull off, and Designated Survivor (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c) stumbles a bit in the execution.

We watched Sutherland crack skulls and foil terrorist plots as tough-guy agent Jack Bauer for nine seasons on Fox’s 24, so it’s almost comical to see him here as a soft-spoken bureaucrat. His character, Cabinet member Tom Kirkman, »

Westworld first-look review – move over Game of Thrones! It's cowboy time

14 September 2016 5:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

HBO’s new future-set flagship show is about a wild-west theme park where the robots have gone rogue. Will it dethrone GoT?

Westworld, a mega-budget remake of the 1973 Michael Crichton film about a futuristic wild-west theme park where people live out their fantasies, and whose AI staff are possibly becoming sentient, poses all sorts of questions about consciousness, humanity and the divine spark. It plays just as niftily as the film (and all the other creations centring on similar premises, from Blade Runner to Battlestar Galactica) did upon our contemporary fears about technology. But the really pressing question is – will it stack up as a strong enough replacement for Game of Thrones when the Lannister-Stark saga comes to an end after series eight? I hope someone at HBO thought to ask a passing librarian how much overlap there tends to be between George Rr Martin and Philip K Dick fans, »

Meet Lucifer’s Mom in new promos for Lucifer season 2

With just over a week to go until its season two premiere, Fox has released another two promos for the DC/Vertigo adaptation Lucifer entitled ‘Doing the Devil’s Work’ and ‘A Wish From Lucifer’s Mom’, the latter of which showcases new cast addition Tricia Helfer as Charlotte; take a look below…

In Lucifer Season 2, Lucifer and his brother, Amendiel, who have been sparring over Lucifer’s resistance to returning to the underworld, will now be brought back together for one common goal – to find their mother, Charlotte (Tricia Helfer, “Battlestar Galactica”), who escaped Hell. After all, Lucifer doesn’t take after his dad, so the parent he does resemble is sure to be quite terrifying. Lucifer’s work with the Lapd also is upended when the police force hires Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia), a smart, tough forensic scientist whose »

Tricia Helfer's Mother From Hell Gets The Spotlight In This New Lucifer Season 2 Promo

8 September 2016 5:38 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fans of Battlestar Galactica's Cylon No. 6 were pleased when it was announced that Tricia Helfer (Powers, Suits) had joined the cast of the second season of Fox's Lucifer , and this new promo gives us an idea of what to expect from her latest enigmatic charater. The brief clip features a seemingly injured Charlotte, wishing things could go back to the way they were. Is the mother of The Devil hoping for a reconciliation with her sons?  “I heard it put, ‘She’s not really that much older [than Lucifer and Amenadiel],’ Helfer explained in a recent interview. “But it will all make sense once you see it. We’re not going to leave people guessing. There’s been enough of that with the concern that she’s escaped from Hell.” pic.twitter.com/ntxq7BVp1s — Lucifer (@LuciferonFOX) September 1, 2016 "Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother »

‘Star Trek’ 50th Anniversary: Cast, Creators, Fans Choose Favorite Episodes

8 September 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Star Trek” premiered 50 years ago today, its reception was colder than the weather outside the Klingon penal colony on Rura Penthe.

“And away we go to another planet for the sci-fi buffs to lick the plate clean,” Variety‘s Sept. 8, 1966 review of the premiere episode, “The Man Trap,” declared. “But there had better be a hefty cargo of them or the Nielsen samplers may come up short.” Predicting doom, it continued, “The opener won’t open up many new frequencies after this sampler.” So not exactly boffo.

The review was typical of the initial response to Gene Roddenberry’s science fiction drama. After a troubled development that saw the initial pilot scrapped and a new one with mostly new characters — the only holdover being Leonard Nimoy’s Spock — created from scratch, “Star Trek” hung on for a short while, renewed for a second, then a third season before being cancelled.

Star Trek: what Discovery can take from its past

28 August 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alastair Stewart Sep 9, 2016

Star Trek is at its best when it aims to be the smartest show on TV, that's why it's endured for fifty years...

For many people who grew up watching Star Trek, it was as much a formative influence as any sermon or religious text. Even now, it still has a timeless quality which has made it a perennial fixture on every entertainment medium over the last five decades, and for good reason.

With another blockbuster film success in Star Trek Beyond and a new series titled Discovery on the horizon for 2017, few would say that after 50 years Star Trek's future is looking bleak. Yet what is the source of Trek's enduring popularity? Is it as simple as an original idea taking hold in the public consciousness, or is there more to it?

Look at the original Star Trek television series (latterly referred to as The »

Showrunner Ronald D. Moore on ‘Outlander,’ ‘Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick’

25 August 2016 3:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edinburgh, Scotland — “Outlander” showrunner Ronald D. Moore told an audience at the Edinburgh Intl. Television Festival on Thursday that in Season 3 the show would start in Scotland but would then be making a sea voyage in the 18th century.

“There’s an extended journey across the Atlantic and then the story eventually goes to Jamaica, the Caribbean and ending up in the New World,” he said. “Season 3 will be as different to Season 2 as Season 2 was to Season 1.”

These dramatic shifts threw up challenges for Moore, who said: “It’s exciting creatively; it’s very hard in terms of the production… You are doing a whole new series with every season. So that’s very difficult. Scouting new locations, building new sets, bringing in new cast members, new costumes, different eras. It increases the expense, it increases the time necessary to prep everything, to shoot everything… So it makes it more difficult and it also takes more »

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Director Anthony Hemingway Reveals the Biggest Challenge of Filming

11 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anthony Hemingway’s prolific directing resume reads like a list of essential TV shows from the past 20 years: “The Wire,” “ER,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Empire.” But it wasn’t until last season, when he helmed five episodes of “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” that Emmy came calling. Now he’s in the running with fellow “O.J.” directors Ryan Murphy and John Singleton.

How does it feel being an Emmy-nominated director?

I’m incredibly humbled and honored. In and of itself, the fact that I’m being recognized and get to attend the award show and party alongside so many great people I respect in the industry … I’ve been in the game for over 25 years, and it’s just the first time that I’ve ever had any experience like this. I’m trying to enjoy it as long as it lasts.

Fox Rolls Out Trailer For New Seasons Of Gotham And Lucifer

9 August 2016 10:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After being treated to a look at the new Poison Ivy, in addition to the news that proto-versions of both Killer Croc and Harley Quinn are on the way, the Gotham hype train shows no signs of slowing down. Fox has decided to whet our appetites with a new trailer that not only teases the Batman prequel series’ third season, but also Lucifer’s second.

Set to Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata,” the promo seems to stress the more somber and dramatic themes to be played out on upcoming episodes of both shows. What amazed me was how well it flowed considering that these shows are in no way connected, aside from being based on DC Comics properties.

The Gotham portion of the trailer really plays up the rivalry between Penguin and Fish Mooney, which has been building since the pilot episode. Quite frankly, I’m expecting all out war to erupt on the city streets. »

The Star Trek Controversy: CBS and Paramount vs. Fan Films

7 August 2016 7:39 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Paramount Pictures and CBS TV have drawn a line in the sand to stop the creation of fan-made films based on Star Trek. Because of the increasing high-quality of fan projects like Star Trek Axanar, the two big corporations have initiated a series of new rules designed to limit the scope and proliferation of the many independently made Star Trek projects. Is this fair?

 Independently made Star Trek projects are nothing new. The first Trek fan-made movie was filmed in Super 8 back in 1978. Since the introduction of the internet, Star Trek fan films and ongoing series have exploded in number. Within the last decade, we’ve had Trek fan series like Starship Exeter, Starship Farragut, Star Trek: Intrepid, Star Trek the New Voyages (Aka Star Trek Phase 2) and, the best one of all, Star Trek Continues, to name a few. We’ve also had full-length independent films like »

George R.R. Martin’s ‘Wild Cards’ Superheroes Series May Be Headed to TV

7 August 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It was recently confirmed that “Game of Thrones” will end after its eighth season, but that doesn’t mean that George R.R. Martin is done with TV. On Saturday, the author announced via his LiveJournal (where else?)  that Universal Cable Productions (Ucp) has acquired the rights to “Wild Cards,” a series of “anthologies and mosaic “novels” that Martin edits.

In his journal entry, Grrm describes the series thusly: “The shared world of the Wild Cards diverged from our own on September 15, 1946 when an alien virus was released in the skies over Manhattan, and spread across an unsuspecting Earth. Of those infected, 90% died horribly, drawing the black queen, 9% were twisted and deformed into jokers, while a lucky 1% became blessed with extraordinary and unpredictable powers and became aces.

How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 Books Two High Profile Guest Stars

5 August 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Are you wondering what's going to be happening on your favorite college campus this fall?

Well, so are we.

And we have a wee bit of news to share that might help as you wait.

Esai Morales and Amy Madigan have landed guest starring roles on How to Get Away with Murder Season 3.

And we have absolutely no details about who they will be playing or what they will be doing.

So if you thought ABC and Shonda Rhimes was going to start changing things when it came to Htgawm, well then you were just wrong.

Madigan is a Shondaland multi-player, however.

She previously did a multi-season arc as Meredith's psychiatrist on Grey's Anatomy.

I have a feeling many of you will be familiar with her from that role. So wouldn't it be fun to see her go polar opposite and be rotten to the core on Htgawm?

Esai is »
