Escape at Dannemora Review: A Superb Cast Elevates a Standard Prison Break

Escape at Dannemora Review: A Superb Cast Elevates a Standard Prison Break
We’ve seen plenty of prison breaks on TV and in movies over the years. (Heck, we even had a whole show called Prison Break… and it ran for five seasons!) So as yet another entry in a well-worn genre, Showtime’s true-crime limited series Escape at Dannemora — premiering this Sunday at 10/9c; I’ve seen six of the seven episodes — is brutally effective, but not especially groundbreaking. When it delves into the thickly tangled psyches of its characters, though, it rises to a higher level, thanks to excellent performances from its three lead actors — especially Patricia Arquette, who delivers fascinating,

'Homecoming' Executive Dawn Olmstead Talks Hollywood's Podcast Gold Rush

Dawn Olmstead's brightly lit corner office has almost none of the usual trappings of a Hollywood work lair. There's no desk, nor is there a computer or bank of TVs airing what's come of the 50-plus series the president of Universal Cable Productions (scripted) and Wilshire Studios (unscripted) has in active development. And that, Olmstead says, is by design.

Before shifting to the executive side in 2014, the longtime producer (Prison Break, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce) had grown accustomed to set life, where her iPhone was command central. So she created a space to foster collaboration. An assistant ...

Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 Episode 4 Review: Wet Hot American Bummer

Legends delights in a summer camp outing that highlights how its characters do (or don't) ask for help.

This Legends of Tomorrow episode review contains spoilers.

Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 Episode 4

There’s something perfect about Legends of Tomorrow being at a summer camp. Could any other superhero show or movie, with their dingy and washed out color schemes, fit there? I don’t think so. Legends belongs at summer camp. It’s fun; it’s silly, and in the best kind of quiet moments on the bus back from a field trip, can get really deep.

Seeing all these characters try and make it as camp counselors was a treat. Ray was especially perfect for this, being such a boy scout, but I especially loved Ava. Getting to tag along with the team, Ava struggles so much being a counselor to the kids because she never had a childhood.

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’: Why the CW Underdog Is Television’s Most Delightful Series

  • Indiewire
This fall, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” star Dominic Purcell offered a withering indictment of the first season in an Instagram post — namely, that it “sucked.” This was not an uncommon opinion of the series when it initially launched in 2016. But it meant something coming from Purcell, who still plays Mick Rory on what has become, in Season 4, the most flat-out enjoyable show on television.

However, Purcell clarified that while the first season of the time travel adventure show “was a dud” and he “wanted off it,” the second season was “a genius master stroke” by the writers, who realized they could “have fun with it.”

Much like Purcell, fans have come to embrace the beautiful strangeness of “Legends.” It’s just one of the 14 series on which uber-producer Greg Berlanti currently has his name, but the only one that brings together a revolving door of lower-tier characters drawn

Oliver Queen Is Crossing Lines In New Arrow Promo

Granted, we may be only two episodes into the current season of Arrow, but I’m pretty sure of how not many reading this will disagree with me in saying that the show has never been more different. Though I’m reasonably certain we’ll eventually return to some semblance of the old status quo, I can’t help feeling like Oliver Queen is living out his own version of Prison Break while the rest of his pals on the outside are taking up residence on NCIS: Los Angeles.

To the uninitiated, I just made it sound like there’s not much sense of coherency, but I assure you there is. You see, both Ollie and the former members of Team Arrow are doing all they can to take down Ricardo Diaz from varying spots, something I imagine will really begin taking shape before long.

In the meantime, though,

How ‘Arrow’ Season 7 Offers a Tantalizing New Start for Felicity

Arrow's Season 7 premiere, “Inmate 458," felt in many ways like a new beginning for the show. This was largely driven by the change that everyone in Star City now knows Oliver Queen is the Green Arrow, and the show no longer needs to devote screentime to keeping that a secret. Furthermore, Oliver’s imprisonment has necessarily shifted Arrow’s focus in new directions. Its lead is now stuck in a single location for the foreseeable future, and since no one expects this show to become a comic book version of Prison Break, it naturally follows that Oliver’s …

20 Most Memorable Coming Out Stories by Hollywood Stars (Photos)
In celebration of National Coming Out day, reflect on these emotional, empowering and sometimes bizarre stories from show business.

In a widely-celebrated and brave blog post, R&B singer and prolific songwriter Ocean revealed a tumultuous romantic relationship with another man. The admission was applauded for discussing the intersection of sexual orientation and the repression of African American male identities.

New Arrow Synopsis Teases The Arrival Of The Longbow Hunters

Barring the previous year, I can’t remember The CW holding its cards so close to the vest heading into a new season of Arrow. I mean, we do know some stuff about what’ll soon go down such as Oliver being in prison, but the status quo for the foreseeable future remains shrouded in mystery.

Fortunately, though, the synopsis for season 7’s second episode has painted the clearest picture yet. So, before we proceed any further, let’s take a look at what to expect from “The Longbow Hunters”:

Felicity Is Determined To Find Diaz At Any Cost — In order to track down Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) from inside prison, Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes that will require aligning with an old enemy. Meanwhile, in Star City, Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) attempts to root out Diaz are thwarted by Diggle (David Ramsey), whose allegiance to Argus now requires him

TV Reboot? Or Revival? Here Are the Definitive Definitions — Don't @ Me!

If you follow me on Twitter — and really, why wouldn’t you? (unless I blocked you for coarsely cursing that I cover “Olicity” too much/not enough) — you’ve seen me cast side-eye at news outlets that improperly apply the terms revival and reboot.

So once and for all, let’s put the definitive definitions to paper, so that they can be framed and or properly filed away in the Library of Congress as anyone sees fit.

Most simply said, a TV Revival shares a continuity with the original series, and at least some original cast members.

Lucifer Season 4: Preacher Baddie Graham McTavish to Play Holy Man
Preacher‘s Graham McTavish is ready to raise a different kind of hell as a holy man on Lucifer.

A kind, deeply empathetic and revered priest, Father Kinley is profoundly committed to guarding his flock. That includes doing whatever it takes to keep mankind safe from evil — which doesn’t bode well for a certain devil living in Los Angeles….
