The Following Season 3 Review

2 March 2015 6:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based on the first two episodes of season three, which were provided to us for review purposes prior to broadcast.

“It’s happening again, isn’t it?” asks a character of Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy towards the end of The Following‘s third season premiere. The “Well, duh” isn’t explicitly stated within the show, but no doubt you’ll provide your own. Taking place a full year after the events of season two, the show picks up at Agent Mendez’s wedding, where we discover Mike and Max have separated and Ryan has a new girlfriend. Then someone mentions Joe Carroll’s imminent execution, a mysteriously ominous caterer makes a move, and The Following is back to its darkly cynical slice of confusingly watchable schlock TV. Those expecting a massive reset this season will be in for a torture warehouse-size disappointment, but anyone totally game »

Watch: ‘Orphan Black’ Mans Up for Season Three

2 March 2015 12:17 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s never a dull moment on BBC America’s “Orphan Black,” as the trailer for the show’s third season demonstrates.

The new season has clones Sarah, Helena, Cosima and Alison (all of whom are played by Tatiana Maslany) delving deeper into their past as new details about Helena’s kidnapping come to light — along with the discovery of a pack of dangerous male clones. The identical men have sprung from Project Castor, with Ari Millen playing Mark, Rudy, Seth and Miller.

Season three will also welcome new guest stars, including Justin Chatwin (“Shameless,” “Weeds”) as a dealer, James Frain (“True Blood,” “Intruders”) as an charming but intimidating “cleaner” known as Ferdinand and Ksenia Solo (“Black Swan,” Syfy’s “Lost Girl”) as a possible love interest for Cosima.

Co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett reprise their roles as writer and director of the series, respectively.

The Following's Kevin Bacon & Cast Tease a Lovestruck Ryan, Vengeful Mike and Quirky New Killers

2 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

At the end of The Following‘s second season, just as Edgar Allen Poe-obsessed serial killer Joe Carroll was taken back into federal custody, his FBI agent nemesis made one last vow.

“You won’t be seeing me anymore,” Ryan Hardy promised the murderer, whose capture he’d personally supervised (and whose life he’d very nearly taken).

But “anymore” — like nevermore — is a really long time. And though Kevin Bacon‘s Ryan may not actually see James Purefoy‘s Joe as the Fox drama kicks off a third season, Carroll’s influence is as palpable as an ice pick through the eye. »

2015 The Summer of the Most Famous Dead Guy on TV – Geek Girl Navigating the World-

28 February 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

You wouldn’t think a show like “Supernatural” would have anything in common with “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Weeds”. After all, they’re wildly different genres on different networks. Each of these shows did do one thing the same. Every single one of them killed a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

He’s the dad they love to kill, or, at least that’s what happened to both John Winchester and Judah Botwin. Even as a single guy with a thing for Scrabble, he didn’t fare so well, just ask Denny Duquette. Oh, wait. You can’t. They killed him, too. He became, for all intents and purposes, the best and most memorable Red Shirt on TV.

Foolishly, I thought maybe movies would make a difference. “Watchmen” and “Jonah Hex” both proved me wrong. He did stay alive through “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding”, “Taking Woodstock,” “The Losers,” “P.S. I Love You »

Serious Ladies, funny girls

25 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Comedians Lena Dunham (Girls), Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), Jenji Kohan (Orange Is the New Black, Weeds) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, SNL) spoke about women in television and film on Saturday (January 24) at the Serious Ladies panel.

New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum guided the panel through such topics as the rise of three-dimensional female characters, the different ways humour can eliminate stereotypes and the importance of sex within a narrative construct. The event was part of the Power Of Story series.

Female-driven series in television

After general references by the panel to the emergence of female-driven television series – Jill Soloway’s recent Golden Globe winner Transparent and Jane Campion’s Sundance 2013 selection Top Of The Lake arose as examples – Kohan turned to viewer demographics.

She cited the film industry’s catering to men aged 18-34 as a reason for the lack of strong female leads and television’s (seemingly) wider target audience for a more diverse »

Welcome to Hollyweed: Why TV Is Going to Pot

“It’s sort of like the new Gold Rush,” truTV’s president and head of programming Chris Linn tells TheWrap

The television industry is catching up with film and learning that pot sells in Hollywood. As more states join the legal marijuana movement and the drug becomes less taboo in the country, entertainment industry insiders say interest in weed-related storylines is at an all-time high.

Showtime series “Shameless,” for instance, which follows Chicago’s dysfunctional Gallagher family and stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, will embark on a major weed arc later this year. The network is also responsible »

“I don’t see the worst in everyone. I see the everyone in everyone.”

For Detective Lt. Everett Backstrom, that’s all the justification he needs to act the way he does — that is, crass, blunt and totally rude.

In Fox’s new cop drama — created by BonesHart Hanson and based on a set of novels by Swedish criminologist Leif G.W. PerssonThe Office‘s Rainn Wilson stars as the titular detective, who is admittedly excellent at his job.

He’s just not so great at the “people skills” thing.

Backstrom Review – TV Fox

20 January 2015 5:10 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Backstrom Review

Fox has a daring bet it’s making on Backstrom, and though we might not like to admit to the pigeonholing it entails, a lot of people are going to have to take Rainn Wilson in exactly the right way for the show to take off. We’ll have to hope it works out, because this is the coolest show in a long time, and Wilson is perfect.

The trick here is that the show may need the help of Rainn Wilson as draw, but that audience also has to be able to distance themselves from Dwight Schrute. Wilson has obviously been around, but to a large percentage of people he is either no one, or Dwight, and you aren’t getting anything like Dwight here.

Backstrom, for the sake of brevity, is a kind of slovenly, “Seinfeld generation” Sherlock Holmes. He’s quick with a quip, and »
