Counterpart Preview: Changing Places

  • TVfanatic
The Howards are going through with their plan to change places.

That means on Counterpart Season 1 Episode 4, Howard will have to step up the pace as he enters the other side to take the place of OHoward.

What will he find when he gets there? This trailer gives us no idea whatsoever.

It does provide intel on what OHoward will be doing while he's wearing Howard's clothes.

He appears to be interrogating a man in a deli, asking what he might know about Alexander Pope, including why AP would be interested in bringing an assassin to this side. 

Why Would Pope want an assassin over here?

Who does he want to kill, or better yet, who does he want to replace with his own man from the other side?

What's highly amusing is listening to Peter Quayle talk a big game.

Gucci Mane Biopic in the Works at Paramount Players, Imagine

Paramount Players and Imagine Entertainment have launched development of a biopic on musician Gucci Mane based on his “The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.”

The studio has obtained life rights to Mane, whose real name is Radric Delantic Davis, and movie rights to the book. Imagine’s Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins will produce the project. Mane and Todd Moskowitz will executive produce.

Mane is a pioneer of the hip-hop genre known as trap music. He made his studio album debut in 2005 with “Trap House,” the first of a dozen studio albums, followed by “Hard to Kill.”

The book tells of his childhood in poverty in Alabama and his move to Atlanta, where he became involved in criminal activity. He spent nearly three years in prison starting in 2004 after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. While incarcerated, he began releasing mixtapes from prison with rappers Migos and Young Thug.

Counterpart Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Birds of a Feather

  • TVfanatic
Other Emily is in the family business.

On Counterpart Season 1 Episode 2 she was willing to take orders to pull him in, and I have to wonder why she didn't question them.

She doesn't have the clearance of her husband, and it's hard not wonder why she wouldn't why a lower level ex-wife would be given the rendition. It was telling of their relationship, though. If she's willing to carry out a rendition order on her husband, things are not well between them.

Seeing how handily an unarmed Other Howard destroyed the two men Emily asked him to take in OHoward, his skills are no longer in doubt.

Just how bad things are between Emily and OHoward is up for debate when it's revealed the rendition call Emily received was a false one. Olivia Williams is playing Emily with just enough doubt in herself we can't be sure what she's thinking,

Pauline Quirke: 'I used to be sick with nerves every time we filmed Birds of a Feather'

She's best known for playing Sharon Theodopolopodos in ITV's long-running sitcom Birds of a Feather, and following parts in Emmerdale and Broadchurch, the Quirkenaissance continues with a lead role in Sky1's ambitious new comedy-drama You, Me and the Apocalypse.

The UK-usa project features one of the most impressive and intriguing ensemble casts for years, including The West Wing's Rob Lowe and The Office's Jenna Fischer, and Quirke will appear as one of several seemingly unconnected individuals against the backdrop of the end of life as we know it.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others on the set of the show, Quirke promised viewers that its "dark" tones help separate it from anything that has come before.

"I like the fact that it's very, very funny, but also because of the subject matter it's quite dark in places," she said. "But the combination of both together really works.

9 TV shows you must watch this week: This Is England '90 finale, Clarkson on Hignfy, last ever CSI

From the sequin-tastic return of Strictly Come Dancing to the promising prospect of The West Wing and Birds Of A Feather colliding as Rob Lowe and Pauline Quirke star in You, Me and The Apocalypse - pull up an easy chair for Digital Spy's top TV picks for the next seven days.

1. CSI - Tuesday, 10pm on Channel 5

After 15 years and uncountable grisly murders in Las Vegas, the CSI team will say farewell in a feature-length movie. Rejoice as William Petersen is back as Gil Grissom, alongside a host of former faces to solve one last case.

It's not a complete end, as Ted Danson has moved sideways to spinoff show CSI: Cyber, but it should be a tough act to follow.

2. You, Me and the Apocalypse - Wednesday, 9pm on Sky1

Like a TV supergroup, this needs to be seen purely because of the eye-rubbingly impressive cast. The West Wing

Linda Robson 'can't be bothered' with Botox

Linda Robson ''can't be bothered'' to have Botox. The 57-year-old actress makes an effort to look good on television, but draws the line at undergoing cosmetic surgery or having the muscle-freezing injections. She said: ''I have my nails done and my eyebrows dyed but that's about it. ''I won't have Botox. I can't be bothered with any of that.'' However, when the 'Birds of a Feather' star - who has kids Lauren, 31, Louis, 23, and Bobbie, 18, with husband Mark Dunford - first dyed her eyebrows, her son was convinced she'd had the skin-smoothing treatment.

Martin Kemp joins the Birds of a Feather cast as new series starts filming

Martin Kemp has joined the cast of Birds of a Feather.

The actor will make a special guest appearance in the first episode of the new series, playing a character called Vince.

The new series of Birds of a Feather is currently filming and will air on ITV in 2016. It will be the show's 12th series in total and its third since moving to ITV last year.

Star Linda Robson recently explained why she turned down the chance to join Strictly Come Dancing, saying she didn't want to be the joke act.

Flockstars: 15 questions we have about ITV's baffling new shepherd reality show

Well, that was something. ITV launched its new reality show Flockstars tonight and it's fair to say that we are utterly baffled.

The show sees a group of celebs learning how to become shepherds, so it's basically One Man And His Dog but with that one out of N-Dubz (no, not that one - and no, not that one either, he's still recovering from doing the fishing show on ITV 4... the other one).

We couldn't help but wonder what the heck we were watching. Are the contestants involved feeling sheepish now? (Sorry.) Was it just too woolly a concept for primetime? (Sorry.) Is it best if we move on from the terrible puns and onto the 15 questions we have about Flockstars? Probably.

1. Why is it so loud? Good God, the show began and the booming voice and loud music practically knocked us off our chairs. Won't somebody think of the sheepdogs?
