Reverie Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Going Down the Rabbit Hole

Let's call this Touched by a Vr Angel.

A former police negotiator chooses to bring people back to reality on Reverie Season 1 Episode 1.

And maybe, just maybe, she can heal herself as well.

This new drama offers the none-too-subtle message of "Get off your phones and take in the world around you."

Wait a sec. I got a text.

Where was I?

Oh, yeah. Reality: let's embrace it.

I suppose, if you're going to have somebody yank you out of paradise, granted for your own good, why not have it be Sarah Shahi?

It's good to have Shahi back in a starring role on TV. It's been far too long since Person of Interest left the air. (I know. Only two years. It just seems longer.)

She returns on another series that's dealing with cutting-edge technology. Shaw's tactics aren't going to work here,

‘Reverie’ Review: This ‘Black Mirror’-Lite NBC Drama Is a Dazzling and Poignant Summer Diversion

‘Reverie’ Review: This ‘Black Mirror’-Lite NBC Drama Is a Dazzling and Poignant Summer Diversion
In the “Black Mirror” episode “Be Right Back,” artist Martha (Hayley Atwell) makes a last-ditch effort to deal with the overwhelming grief of losing her boyfriend Ash (Domhnall Gleeson). After his fatal car accident, Martha uploads all of his social media into an AI that allows it to mimic the way he thinks, speaks, and acts. NBC’s new summer series “Reverie” also allows people to revisit loved ones via their social media footprint, although in a different setting.

While “Black Mirror” brought the AI to life into Martha’s sphere of existence first via text and phone chats and then in a bio-enhanced android, NBC’s series makes the user enter a virtual world for the reunion. Not bound by the mundane rules of physics and logic, this alternate existence allows “Reverie” to take fanciful flights that lead to exciting visual and psychological explorations.

“Reverie” stars Sarah Shahi as former hostage negotiator Mara Kint,

The Top Five “Person of Interest” Shaw Moments of All-Time

Sameen Shaw (played by Sarah Shahi) started out as a recurring character on Season 2 of Person of Interest, but had since managed to become a main character. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that she is rather popular with a fair number of the fandom. Something that has been helped by her moments of heroism as well as her moments of emotion suggesting that there is more to her character than what she shows on her surface. Here are five of the best moments featuring Sameen Shaw from Person of Interest: Shaw Hugs Genrika

Season 2 of Taken has Become the “Law and Order” of the Spy Game

In the beginning, I had my doubts about season 2 of Taken. The show was vastly different from the first season. Most of the old cast was gone. The new premise involved a fancy computer program – much like the new showrunner Greg Plageman‘s former show, Person of Interest. Then, for several episodes, the only connection between the Bryan Mills (Clive Standen ) of season 1 and his character in season 2 was his fighting ability. It seemed as though the growth and insight that was happening via the work with his team and the relationship with his girlfriend had

7 TV Spies Whose Loved Ones Got Caught In the Crossfire

It’s no secret that the life of a spy is grueling. To work in the field, one must have a certain tolerance for pain, stress, and the psychological toll of knowing that danger can lurk around any corner. Even though spies have the ability to put their emotions on hold in order to do their jobs, sometimes things just get too personal. At the end of the day, spies are humans as well, humans with families and friends who usually want no part of the world of espionage.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that they don’t face unforeseen physical, mental, and emotional consequences. These seven television spies showed us the side effects that could accompany the job, specifically when their loved ones got caught in the crossfire.

Facing Backlash and Embracing Adoption: Inside Jim Caviezel's Life Since Passion of the Christ

Facing Backlash and Embracing Adoption: Inside Jim Caviezel's Life Since Passion of the Christ
When Jim Caviezel took on the role of Jesus in the 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, he knew it would be a controversial decision.

“I made a choice,” the actor, 49, tells People. “But what you find out is that some choices are viewed as evil and I don’t see it that way.”

The Mel Gibson-directed film, which focused on the last hours of Jesus’s life, was a box-office sensation, earning over $600 million to become the highest-grossing religious film of all time, despite allegations that it contained anti-semitic undertones.
