‘Intruders’ VOD Review

29 May 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Beth Riesgraf, Martin Starr, Jack Kesy, Rory Culkin, Leticia Jimenez | Written by T.J. Cimfel, David White | Directed by Adam Schindler

 

Anna Rook is isolated from human contact in nearly every way, which is exactly how she likes it. Suffering from crippling agoraphobia and holed up in an old Victorian mansion on the outskirts of town, the people in Anna’s life can be counted on two fingers: her terminally-ill brother, Conrad, and the charismatic Meals-on-Wheels driver, Dan. But Anna’s home is about to be invaded by a trio of small-time criminals after a hidden stash of cash. She can’t bring herself to flee, but what the intruders don’t realise is that agoraphobia is the least of her psychoses.

Home invasion thrillers are ten-a-penny these days, as are single location horrors and, at first, it looks like Shut In was set to join those ranks. Which isn »

Underground's Aldis Hodge Hails Wgn Thriller's Take on 'The Most Unresolved Subject in American History'

30 March 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Underground‘s Noah is off and running — though sooner and with different company than he originally planned.

On Wgn America’s slave drama (airing Wednesdays at 10/9c), the Macon Plantation blacksmith (played by Leverage alum Aldis Hodge) was painstakingly plotting a great escape, with a hand-picked assortment of peers. But when house slave Rosalee fended off, in a fatal manner, an assault by the overseer, Noah found his plan accelerated.

Or has it been? Here, Hodge teases the thriller’s twists to come and examines Underground‘s larger role in the depiction of America’s slavery saga.

Underground Season 1 Review

8 March 2016 9:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

You wouldn’t think sex and scandal could ever mesh with slavery on a would-be legacy series. You wouldn’t be wrong, either, but because peak TV rewards risk, here’s giving credit where credit is due. To its credit, Underground, Wgn America’s newest breath into the original programming bubble, works hard to slip a sleek cable skin over everything ugly about America’s darkest chapter (if a chapter can last 250 years). Feats that big fall hard, though, and the difficult legacy the show shoulders means that every misstep it takes stands to cripple it.

The story Underground tells is familiar enough. Outside the lush white walls of the Macon plantation, men, women, and children toil in the Georgia summer steam, forced to carry King Cotton on their beaten backs. The slaves “owned” by Tom Macon live as best they can, which »

Review: Wgn's 'Underground' is 'Roots' meets 'Prison Break'

8 March 2016 8:29 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

American slavery should be an impossible subject for an ongoing TV series to handle. Done right as a standalone movie like 12 Years A Slave, or a miniseries like the iconic Roots or Bet's more recent The Book of Negroes, it can create a difficult but incredibly cathartic short-term experience. But it's a lot to ask an audience to tune in week after week, season after season, to a story of degradation and unfathomable cruelty that any kind of serious treatment of this blight on our nation's history requires. Do it properly, and you chase away viewers in a hurry. Lighten things up, and you risk diminishing the subject to the point of offensiveness. Underground, Wgn America's latest period drama (it debuts Wednesday night at 10), finds a clever solution to that problem. It's set in the pre-Civil War South, and most of its characters are slaves on a Georgia cotton plantation, »

Underground Review: Thriller Aspect, Modern Riffs Drive Wgn's Slave Drama

6 March 2016 7:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Having previously plumbed the 17th-century and then the 1940s via Salem and Manhattan, Wgn America’s next period drama, Underground, aims to bring a modern sensibility to the senseless injustice of slavery in the United States circa 1857.

Specifically, as its title suggests, the 10-episode series — created by Misha Green (Sons of Anarchy) and Joe Pokaski (Heroes) and premiering Wednesday, March 9 at 10/9c) — offers an alternately gripping and illuminating look at the Underground Railroad system by which the bravest (and/or most desperate) of slaves sought to escape to the north, with the hope of living free. »
