Grimm season 6 episode 8 review: The Son Also Rises

27 February 2017 3:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Christine Horton Feb 27, 2017

When will Grimm stop the Wesen-of-the-week stories in favour of wrapping up its overall arcs in time for the finale?

6.8 The Son Also Rises

Another week, another random Wesen-related mystery – this time we were presented with a tale that was ‘heavily influenced’ by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

The gist of it is a scientist – named Victor Shelley, I kid you not – attempts to bring his dead son back to life, with the aid of a few stolen body parts from the local cemetery. What he doesn’t take into account is those body parts are taken from Wesen, leading him to create a human-hybrid monster with murder on his mind. We’re »

Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 Review: The Son Also Rises

24 February 2017 7:55 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

I confess: I had a really, really hard time deciding what grade to give Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 because I was just too busy laughing my head off.

It was just so difficult to take "The Son Also Rises" with any amount of seriousness, particularly as a person with a degree in English and a modicum of scientific understanding.

In one of the most blatant riffs on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I have ever seen, Grimm had pretty much everything except for villagers wielding torches and pitchforks!

The whole thing was started by the un-subtley named Victor Shelley got into a car accident with his son, killing (not mostly killing, or nearly killing, but actually killing!) said son.

In a feat of astonishing scientific brilliance (otherwise known as magic), Dr. Shelley and his colleagues actually managed to resurrect the son! They literally brought him back from the dead!

TV Review: ‘Patriot’ on Amazon

24 February 2017 8:46 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of the great things about the spy genre is its elasticity: It can accommodate the cerebral melancholy of “The Americans,” the adrenalized immediacy of the Jason Bourne films, the suave adventure of the James Bond movies and the kind of delightful escapism NBC’s “Chuck” provided for five seasons.

What it can’t support, as demonstrated by the insufferable Amazon series “Patriot,” is forced whimsy gone very wrong.

Patriot” at least tries something novel: It transplants the sensibilities of a Wes Anderson film into the world of spies and their associates. Burned-out operative John Tavner (Michael Dorman) gets a job at a Milwaukee firm that is set to take care of Iran’s piping needs, but his secret mission is to prevent the country from making its nuclear program operational. His pragmatic father, Tom (Terry O’Quinn), runs the State Department’s espionage program, and his rather passive brother, Edward »

Newswire: Yvonne Strahovski joins the hunt for The Predator

23 February 2017 6:06 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The cast of The Predator, Shane Black’s sequel-not-reboot to 2010’s Predators, is currently brimming with badasses like Boyd Holbrook of Narcos, Thomas Jane of The Punisher, and Room’s Jacob Tremblay. The young actor was looking adorable as ever in the recent cast photo, where everyone—including Olivia Munn and Keegan-Michael Key—stood in front of the camera in their L.L. Bean best. Tremblay plays Holbrook‘s son, who’s unwittingly drawn into this battle of man versus extraterrestrial hunter of man. Those aren’t good odds for the young one, which is why he’s getting some backup from Yvonne Strahovski. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Chuck and 24: Live Another Day alum will play Tremblay’s mom, who we’ll probably learn has some impressive survival skills of her own. Filming is underway for The Predator, which debuts February 9, 2018. »

Yvonne Strahovski Sets Sights on The Predator

22 February 2017 12:10 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following yesterday's news that Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen has joined the growing cast The Predator, another big name has now been linked to the Shane Black film.

According to THR, Yvonne Strahovski is in "final negotiations" to play the mother of Jacob Tremblay's character in The Predator. Tremblay's character is described as "a troubled boy who is accidentally drawn into the conflict with the fierce alien creatures" due to his mother's ex-husband, portrayed by Boyd Holbrook.

Should Strahovski's deal be finalized, she would join a cast that, in addition to the aforementioned Allen, Tremblay, and Holbrook, includes Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Jane, most of whom were featured in a cast photo unveiled by Black.

The Predator Sets Sights On Yvonne Strahovski

22 February 2017 11:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Yvonne Strahovski, star of NBC’s Chuck, has entered talks to join the cast of The Predator, Shane Black’s R-rated reboot that officially fired up production in Vancouver earlier in the week.

Negotiations are ongoing, according to THR, but assuming a deal sticks, Strahovski would join the likes of Boyd HolbrookJacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Moonlight‘s Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen, Olivia Munn and definitely not Arnold Schwarzenegger – shoehorning his Dutch into the plot would only take audiences out of the experience, according to Holbrook.

In more positive news, the Logan star has hinted that Shane Black is rustling up something “totally different” with The Predator, as the illustrious writer-director looks to relocate the iconic alien onto the streets of suburbia. It’ll feature multiple extraterrestrials, too, leading Holbrook’s Special Forces commando Quinn McKenna to rally »
