In this new Golden Age of TV drama, viewers don't lack for the most erudite, artful, philosophical dramas they can possibly find. But sometimes, we just want to watch stuff blow up real good, and in a way that doesn't insult our intelligences. That is where Cinemax's "Strike Back" has come in for the last few years, and the way the show will be going out when its final season debuts here on July 31. (The first few episodes have already aired in the UK.) It's an action show that's always been smarter, funnier and plain better than it needs to be, with great chemistry between leads Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton (both of whom will be headlining NBC dramas this fall), action sequences that put the best of network TV (including "Arrow") to shame and a winning mix of fun and genuine stakes. I've seen the first four episodes of the final season, »

Knights of the Round Table, meet your king.
Once Upon a Time has cast British actor Liam Garrigan (24: Live Another Day) as King Arthur, per EW.com, who as TVLine first reported will heavily recur during the first half of the ABC series’ fifth season.
RelatedOnce Upon a Time Revives Lancelot
King Arthur is described as a “good and just ruler” who, beneath the surface, “is a master manipulator who can carry a grudge to the grave, and maybe beyond.” He harbors an “eternal burning love” for the yet-to-be-cast Guinevere that can lean toward being a bit controlling.
Once Upon a Time is turning Liam Garrigan into royalty. As exclusively reported by EW.com, the 24 Live Another Day actor has been cast to play King Arthur in the upcoming fifth season of the ABC fairy-tale drama. Garrigan will make his Once debut as Arthur in the Season 5 premiere and continue to recur after his first appearance. Arthur is one of three new major characters that Once Upon a Time is introducing in Season 5, with the other two being Merlin and Guinevere. Additionally, Sinqua Walls’ Lancelot is already set to return. “As we do on Once Upon a Time, we’re doing our own twist on Camelot, on Arthur’s background and on his relationships with Merlin, Guinevere and Lancelot,” Once Upon a Time executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis tell EW. In addition to playing terrorist Ian Al-Harazi in 24: Live Another Day, Garrigan’s past TV »

As the macho military drama begins its final season, Rhik Samadder – who was killed off in season two – pays tribute to its steroidal mix of smack talk and beat-downs
Budapest, spring 2011. I’m in a limousine, flying up an empty road by the banks of the Danube. I’m looking tense, but also sharp, due to the exquisite tailoring of my suit. The handsome military general sat next to me is frowning. “We have to turn around. There’s been an incident at the World Summit,” I say, in a vaguely Pakistani accent, on the phone to someone who isn’t there. Suddenly, there’s chaos. A blacked-out Hummer roars past us, and executes a perfect 180 handbrake skid to face us down. Two more pull up at our flank, hemming us in. Well-built men carrying automatic weapons spill out and advance on us.
It feels like something out of a movie. »

The crime thriller was being eyed for adaptation by ABC - though the network later passed on the project.
Green, though, told Digital Spy that the show - in which he played psychologist Dr. Tony Hill - still has the potential to be a Us smash-hit.
"They'd Americanize it [and] they'd do a brilliant job. American TV - the high-end stuff - is exceptional. They'd have made a great job of it, but it wasn't picked up - never mind."
Green also ruled out ever reprising the role of Tony if a Us remake did make it to the screen.
"No, I've done that," he said. »
Green - who plays Lt. Col. Philip Locke - told Digital Spy that the action thriller's next run gets "bigger and better" than before - and "couldn't really go anywhere else".
"You can't write a story like this, and then continue the series," he hinted. "So yeah, we knew it was going to go out with a bang. The storylines were so gripping and thrilling.
"It just got better and better and it couldn't really go anywhere else. But you should always leave your audience wanting more, and I think the finale does that. It really is a very emotional ending."
However, Green did reveal that, early on, that had been talk of Strike Back continuing - perhaps on a new network. »
NBC has revealed trailers for a few of its fall series, including Blindspot, People Are Talking, The Player and Heartbreaker – and the result is an expectedly mixed bag. My first impressions of the trailers, below:
Out of everything that’s coming to the major networks this fall, Blindspot seems like one of the most promising. It boasts a highly capable cast in Jaime Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton, and the story is basically a TV blend of Memento and The Bourne Identity, which I’m entirely on board with. Unless the story is mind-numbingly stupid (of which there’s a disconcertingly high possibility), Blindspot could be the rare NBC thriller that actually draws eyeballs.
Unfortunately, I can’t say that I feel anything apart from irritation toward People Are Talking, simply because even though the trailer, true to this comedy’s title, features a lot of people talking (about sex, sex »

As it closes in on its second consecutive season-long victory in the key adult 18-49 demographic, NBC unveils a new 2015-16 primetime schedule that combines popular returning series, edge-of-your-seat new dramas, inventive new comedies and season nine of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice. NBC is on track to win the traditional September-to-May primetime season in adults 18-49 for the second year in a row after having gone the prior 10 years without an 18-49 win. Through 32 completed weeks of the season, NBC also ranks #1 or tied for #1 among the Big 4 networks in adults and men 18-34 and men and women 18-49.
In total viewers, NBC is running #2 for the season and within 7% of its year-ago Olympics-boosted average (8.8 million vs. 9.5 million), making this season and last NBC's two top-scoring seasons in total viewers since 2006-07. NBC has won the last three November sweeps in adults 18-49, as well as »
NBC has unveiled its full primetime schedule for the upcoming 2015 TV season, and along with it, they’ve also released full-length trailers for a number of their new shows. Below is the schedule along with descriptions and trailers for their new line-up which includes the mysterious drama Blindspot from Greg Berlanti (the producer of Arrow and The Flash); along with Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris, which promises to be good thanks to the multi-talented star at the center of the show; as well as the hotly anticipated Heroes Reborn.
From executive producer Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “The Mysteries of Laura”) comes “Blindspot”: A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos, is discovered naked in Times Square with no memory of who she is or how she got there.

NBC announced its 2015-16 schedule on Sunday (May 10) morning and also unveiled first-look photos from many of its new shows. We have a gun-toting Zachary Levi as Luke Collins in "Heroes Reborn," which NBC hopes will be a better kick-start for its Thursday lineup than "The Slap" was this spring. And speaking of "The Slap," we have Melissa George as a heart surgeon with romantic issues in "Heartbreaker," airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. after "The Voice." Plus, if you dug Dave Annable as a doctor in "Red Band Society," he's here, too. And NBC has gone all-in on "Strike Back" stars, so check out the first pictures of Philip Winchester in a topless brawl from the Thursday 10 p.m. drama "The Player," plus Sullivan Stapleton and a naked, tattooed Jaime Alexander in the Monday 10 p.m. drama "Blindspot." Also, we have pictures from NBC's "People Are Talking" and several other »

NBC announced its 2015-16 primetime TV schedule on Sunday (May 10), a schedule that arrived with several key open questions, including: What will get the benefit of "The Voice" lead-in? What can be done to save "The Blacklist" in specific and Thursday in general? Where, if anywhere, will NBC be able to make room for comedy programming? We now have answers to all three questions. There are, in order, "Blindspot," "Heroes Reborn" and Friday. NBC's fall, which will be buttressed, as always, by Sunday Night Football, includes the premieres of three new dramas (four if you consider "Heroes Reborn" to be new) and one new comedy, with only Sunday and Wednesday nights intact. “We’re attacking the new season with the same programming strategy that successfully turned NBC around — a slate of provocative and innovative series and events that cut through the clutter and will continue to build on our momentum, »
