Rectify Season 2, Episode 8 – “The Great Destroyer”

Written by Scott Teems (story) & Ray McKinnon (teleplay)

Directed by Billy Gierhart

Episode 9 – “Until You’re Blue”

Written by Victoria Morrow & Scott Teems

Directed by Seith Mann

Episode 10 – “Unhinged”

(Note: as a primer for Rectify’s third season premiere, Randy revisited the final three episodes of season two.)

There’s nothing more important than family on Rectify - and I’m not just talking about Daniel Holden, or even the Holden family in general. The closing episodes of Rectify‘s haunting, beautiful second season are all about breaking down the various families of Paulie, be it the Holdens, the Willis’s, or even something more abstract, like the law enforcement characters, or the general population of Paulie. As Senator Roland Foulkes pushes and pushes to get Daniel’s case reopened, everyone in Georgia finds

Rectify Ep. 2.04-2.05 “Donald the Normal”/”Act As If” two fantastic, thematically-rich hours of TV’s most underrated show

Rectify Season 2, Episodes 4 & 5 “Donald the Normal”/”Act As If”

Written by Kate Powers & Ray McKinnon (“Donald the Normal”), Victoria Morrow (“Act As If”)

Directed by David Lowery (“Donald the Normal”) and Andrew Bernstein (“Act As If”)

Change. At the heart of Rectify is the idea of change: set in a town stuck in the past, featuring a family reeling from an event twenty years ago, and a main character whose entire reality is broken the instant he’s released from prison. And as the heart of Rectify, the Holden household kitchen serves as the perfect metaphor for change: starting over really only happens when you start over, when you finally get rid of the old and allow the new to consume you. But true, soul-enriching change is scary, difficult, and easily corrupted: and in “Donald the Normal” and “Act As If”, that struggle bleeds into every scene, every conversation, every shot composition – and as always,

Fox’s Fringe Adds Lost Charlotte

An alumnus from J.J. AbramsLost is on her way to the set of Fringe on Fox. In fact, we hear another Lost actor, Maggie Grace, also has a new gig. It’s for a killer new pilot. But let’s focus on Fringe, shall we?

Fans of Fringe will remember seeing a season finale last year that delivered the disappearance of Peter. Someone is always disappearing on that series. This time around, on the upcoming May season ender, someone will appear instead of disappear and that person is Lost‘s Rebecca Mader, who played Charlotte once upon a time.

For Fringe, Mader will play Jessica, someone who will connect heavily with Olivia. We’ll see her work beginning in the final two episodes of the season. And get this, producers tell TV Guide that Jessica is linked to the super villain David Robert Jones. She’s also a tough chick.

Interview - Rebecca Mader Discusses No Ordinary Family

Rebecca Mader has kept busy since Lost, but fans of the fiery redhead have been without a weekly fix of her crackling wit and penetrating blue eyes since Charlotte Lewis came down with a time travel induced cerebral hematoma nearly two years ago. Tonight that drought comes to an end when Rebecca debuts her character Victoria Morrow on the latest episode of ABC's No Ordinary Family, "No Ordinary Brother", which premieres on ABC at 8pm Est.

Comic-Con 2010: Showtime's Anti-Heroes Have More Fun

You'd think between a serial killer, a drug addict, a pot dealer, and and a sex fiend that Showtime could find some protagonist to chronicle without all that pesky moral ambiguity. 

But where's the fun in that?

"Showtime's Anti-Heroes" put most of our favorite leading law-breakers together in one panel with their respective producers and examined what it means to play bad guys defined by their consciences.  Panelists included Michael C. Hall  and Chip Johannesson of Dexter, Victoria Morrow and Mary Louis Parker of Weeds, Linda Wallem and Paul Schulze of Nurse Jackie, and Tom Kapinos and David Duchovny (seeming rather hung over) of Californication.

In between sizzle reals catching the audience up on each respective show and giggling at fans' repetitive and predictable questions, we learned a few new tid-bits about our favorite Showtime scoundrels.

Rob Lowe, Carla Gugino will guest star on Californication as a burnt out Brad Pitt-looking celeb,
