Whatever Happened to the Cast of “CSI Cyber?”

There is obviously a real problem with cyber crime and CSI Cyber was just as obviously created to bring this to light in the show, but looking at the cast it still feels like an attempt to put together a program with those that hadn’t yet reached super-stardom or those that had and were now seeking to remain relevant. In any case the actors used for the show were mostly proven and knew how to present themselves, but obviously people weren’t really buying into it quite as much since the show was canceled in 2016 after two seasons.

Charmed Reboot: 10 Times The CW's Premiere Honored the Original Series

Macy, Mel and Maggie may not be the Halliwell sisters, but they’re still the Charmed Ones — and they’re following in the original witches’ footsteps more than they probably realize.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Charles Kimbrough

Charles Kimbrough is one of the many actors that you might still enjoy if you were watching him years ago since he’s been around for a while. His style has been kind of straight-laced with many roles and as far as humorous appearances go he’s been right there in step with those around him and just as professional as the lot of them when it comes to getting the job done. He does kind of look like the type of square-jawed individual that might be less humor and more business, but honestly he’s been one of the better supporting actors

‘Transparent’ Will Conclude With a Musical Episode, Jill Soloway Teases ‘La La Land’ by Way of ‘Yentl’
There has been much speculation surrounding the final season of “Transparent,” the Amazon Original series created by Jill Soloway. The show’s future was in limbo after the departure of star Jeffrey Tambor, who was fired by Amazon following allegations of sexual harassment on set (Tambor denies the allegations). In an interview with The New York Times, Soloway promised a fitting finale for the Emmy-winning series — complete with musical numbers.

“It will hopefully feel like ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ mixed with ‘La La Land’ mixed with ‘Flight of the Conchords’ with something more Jewish thrown in,” Soloway said. “A little ‘Yentl.’”

Transparent” was based on Soloway’s lived experience of seeing a parent transition, and Soloway and their sister, Faith Soloway, had been kicking around the musical idea long before “Transparent.”

“This idea of music rescuing our family was all there,” Soloway said. “So we’re like, Let’s just keep blowing on the flame.

The Story Behind the Big Little Lies Theme Song

Honestly and truly the theme song to Big Little Lies seems like it might be one of the high points of the show, despite the fact that the main actors are being lauded for putting in great performances. There’s no doubting those that are established, but when a theme song becomes the main focus of a show, or at least one of them, it kind of means that the show itself might drag on a little too much as it’s said of the opening to Bll. The tension and the suspense that’s built into this HBO show seems fit to
