So You Think You Can Dance Recap: It's Just Emotions, Taking Me Over

17 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

How can I adequately express my feelings about So You Think You Can Dance‘s Top 14 performance show? Allow me to take a cue from Paramore’s Hayley Williams: “After all this time, I’m still into you.”

Okay, okay, I realize that’s cheesy. But let’s face it: During the 120 minutes allotted for Wednesday’s episode, it was hard not to be legitimately frustrated that this gem of a reality competition series so often flies under the radar, when even in its 11th season, performers are still earning three-judge standing O’s (and millions from viewers’ living rooms, »

“Major Crimes” 3.05 “Who Are The Village People?”

8 July 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Rusty Beck (wonderfully played by Graham Patrick Martin) has been an integral part of TNT’s Major Crimes since, well, before the show even aired. He made his debut on the series finale of The Closer, and was brought back for the spinoff, and we’ve spent the last two and a half seasons watching his journey.

Last night’s episode was a pivotal one for Rusty, as he gathered the courage to come out to his fiends in the squad room, and thanks to out showrunner James Duff, it was handled without histrionics, and with humor and sensitivity.

The episode centered around a therapy session Rusty has with Dr. Bowman (played by the out Bill Brochtrup), and Rusty’s coming out is told through a case the Major Crimes Unit is investigating.

An All-Star Cast Seeks To Reach Me In New Trailer

7 July 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a general rule, I’m a big believer in cinema moving forward. It’s vital for an artform to constantly renew and reinvigorate itself, in order to remain interesting and avoid stagnation. That’s why bold and visionary filmmakers are so important. To date, the writer and director of Reach MeJohn Herzfeld – has been neither of those things (2 Days In The Valley, anyone?), but the new trailer for his latest movie suggests a move in a new, more intriguing direction.

The film is about a large collection of characters and their respective connections to a self-help book – titled ‘Reach Me’ – written by a reclusive author, played by Tom Berenger. Now, here’s the thing – it would seem that while this film represents the all-important forward motion for helmer Herzfeld, it may also prove to be the opposite for many in its cast – and that’s just fine.

‘The Last Ship’ Series Premiere Review

23 June 2014 4:53 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Last Ship season 1, episode 1. There will be Spoilers.]


TNT’s The Last Ship is everything that a summer blockbuster should be – and one or two things that it shouldn’t. Overall, though, producer Michael Bay delivers an enjoyable, visually stunning and high octane hour of television that accomplishes its main goal: it makes us want to see more.

Based on William Brinkley’s cold-war era novel of the same name, the television adaptation of The Last Ship is handled by showrunners Hank Steinberg (Without a Trace, 61*) and Steven Kane (The Closer), who lead the tale in a slightly different direction – in that this story deals with the threat posed by a global pandemic ...

Whether its Bad Boys or the Transformers films, Michael Bay seems to have a fascination with cars. However, the new TNT show The Last Ship proves that Bay is as adept at sea as he is on land.

Of course the Eric Dane-led drama based on the William Brinkley novel of the same name is not Bay’s first time executive producing a project on a boat: He was also behind Pearl Harbor and his first TV adventure Black Sails. Dane plays Captain Tom Chandler, a Navy man in charge of a 200+ person crew aboard the U.S.S. »
