‘The Rookie’ Review: Nathan Fillion’s New ABC Cop Drama Is a Perfectly Fine Procedural, Except for One Thing

‘The Rookie’ Review: Nathan Fillion’s New ABC Cop Drama Is a Perfectly Fine Procedural, Except for One Thing
Nathan Fillion is back and this time he’s a real cop. With “Castle” dead long enough for its creator to launch a new ABC comedy and one of its stars to get an ABC drama all his own, it’s time Castleites move on from watching Fillion tagging along with the boys in blue and witness him become one instead. Network executives hope so, and the sturdy pilot doesn’t give much reason to expect otherwise.

There’s not much to “The Rookie” beyond the obvious — a man in a midlife crisis finds new purpose by becoming a cop — but familiarity is kind of the point. Loosely inspired by a true story, “Castle” executive producer Alexi Hawley’s series is still an episodic cop drama built around its star and for his fans, as well as the genre’s. After the dutiful first episode, odds are Fillionites and procedural

A+E’s ‘Project Blue Book’ Thinks the Truth Is Still Out There

A+E’s ‘Project Blue Book’ Thinks the Truth Is Still Out There
It started with a long-ago conversation with astronomer Carl Sagan, which awoke an abiding interest in UFOs and the possibility of extraterrestrial life in Robert Zemeckis. That led in part to 1997’s “Contact,” which Zemeckis helmed, and, now, “Project Blue Book,” which he’s executive producing for A+E Studios.

The show bears more than a passing resemblance to “The X-Files,” from the tagline to the menacing presence of a shadowy figure in a hat and coat. Based on a real-life government operation called Project Blue Book, the series centers on the investigation by the U.S. Air Force into UFO sightings in the 1950s and ’60s.

How Americans Became Addicted to Cable News in the Trump Era (Column)

How Americans Became Addicted to Cable News in the Trump Era (Column)
It took a made-for-reality-tv president to get Americans addicted to television news again.

Over the year-plus of the Trump presidency, cable news has supplanted prestige dramas as the talk of the virtual water cooler, no matter your political allegiance. From the provocative media tours of James Comey and Stormy Daniels to the incendiary Senate hearings into the conduct of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, staying tuned from Rachel Maddow into Lawrence O’Donnell — or from Sean Hannity into Laura Ingraham — has replaced bingeing just one more episode of “Stranger Things” before bed.
