TV Series Based On Judge Mablean’s Early Career In Works From Daughter Taj Paxton, Don Handfield

TV Series Based On Judge Mablean’s Early Career In Works From Daughter Taj Paxton, Don Handfield
Exclusive: Daytime Emmy-winning producer Taj Paxton is teaming with Don Handfield to develop a family drama series inspired by the true-life story of Paxton’s mother, Judge Mablean Ephriam, the first presiding judge of the syndicated TV series Divorce Court.

Ephriam, who hosts Justice with Judge Mablean, was the first African American woman to have a nationally televised court show. A former Los Angeles prosecuting attorney, she also served as a lead attorney in L.A.’s inaugural Domestic Violence Unit.

When Mablean first opened her private family law practice, however, money was so tight that her young children worked as her employees. A 10-year-old Paxton would serve as her legal secretary, typing up court briefs while her older brothers filed court documents and assisted in serving subpoenas. Inspired by those beginnings, the series will center on a tenacious but tender working-class black mother who, like Ephriam,

Batman: Arkham Knight Identity Revealed in Detective Comics

Jim Dandy May 20, 2019

Detective Comics #1004 reveals a very different origin for Batman villain, the Arkham Knight.

You would be forgiven for throwing a little eye roll at Detective Comics when you heard that the main Batman villain of the latest arc would be the Arkham Knight. After all, very rarely do ideas that start in other mediums translate all that well to comics. Also, the Arkham Knight is...already spoken for in main DC continuity..

You would be forgiven for it, but you would also be wrong for doing so. First, as we’ve discussed several times before, DC’s track record on comics adaptations is shockingly good. The various Injustice books have been fun, while the Mortal Kombat lead in books have been worthwhile additions to the series and the Arkham Knight adaptation book was high quality. Additionally, the Arkham Knight adaptation was written by Peter Tomasi, who is

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 8

“I want them found, and I want them dead.”

Knightfall concludes its stellar sophomore season like a show that plans to return for another run at telling the complicated tale of the Templars’ final days. Yes, the writers reshape the historical record to fit the narrative, but in the end, “While I Breathe, I Trust the Cross” gives us exactly what we’ve wanted all along – Landry plunging a sword into King Philip’s chest. After last week’s grim reminder that man controls the darkness of his own heart, tonight’s season finale plot twist offers a glimmer of hope for both the order and the crown.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Death Awaits

The beginning of the end arrives on Knightfall as King Philip and Princess Isabella press their advantages.

This Knightfall review contains spoilers.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 7

“I understand cruelty when I see it.”

We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make the season two penultimate episode of Knightfall any easier to watch. Tonight the urge to avert our eyes at King Philip’s final vengeful acts against the Templars seems as much a betrayal as that perpetrated by former brother Gawain. “Death Awaits” forces us to acknowledge that a lie told often enough by enough prominent individuals eventually resonates with those who ultimately have the least to lose.

We don’t know whether master manipulator William De Nogaret or Philip orchestrates the details of the Templars’ final days, but the horrific image of the brothers pulling a cart laden with the very firewood that will send them to

Blinded by the Light, Yesterday, and more feature in stacked Ccff 2019 lineup

One of the great opportunities of covering film within Chicago is the annual Chicago Critics Film Festival key members of the association organize, and although this is only my third year covering it, I can safely say the programming becomes more tantalizing every year. This lineup more than any other contains the strongest mix of high profile films (some of which I can’t believe we were able to get for the festival), independent projects, works rooted in Chicago in some fashion, and a 40-year anniversary celebration of Ridley Scott’s Alien. Enough rambling though, check out the full press release below.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Road to Chartres

In an exciting Knightfall, Prince Louis finally meets Landry face to face, and the king sends his army to war.

This Knightfall review contains spoilers.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 5

“You’ve brought women into our temple. Have you lost your minds?”

When I watch or review historical drama, I make a point to avoid, as much as possible, information that will spoil the enjoyment of experiencing various narrative threads unfold as the series progresses. Such has been the case with Knightfall and Vikings. And while I can’t say for sure whether Prince Louis succeeds his father on the throne, I still hold out hope that Landry will violently put down Philip’s rabid dog. Of course, conventional wisdom tells me I’m going to be disappointed, but “Road to Chartres” more than makes up for that with a perfect blend of tightly crafted action sequences, rapidly evolving political intrigue,

10 Things We’d Like to See Knightfall Do Better

Knightfall is the History Channel’s attempt to replicate the success of Vikings using the Knights Templar. Given its name, it should come as no surprise to learn that it is set a short period of time before their spectacular fall during the rule of Philip IV of France, which happens to be the most storied part of their existence as well. Unfortunately, while Knightfall isn’t wholly without merit, there are various elements of the show that could see some improvement. Here are 10 things that we would like to see Knightfall improve on: 1. Make Up Its Mind About What

Chucky Is a Killer Doll for the Digital Era in ‘Child’s Play’ Reboot Trailer (Video)
Chucky is back — and he’s gone high-tech.

The official trailer for the “Child’s Play” reboot was released Thursday, revealing a murderous doll for the digital era.

Yep, he’s still got a sharp knife and an evil blank stare as he did in the 1988 horror classic, but now Chucky is connected to the Buddi app that claims to introduce you to “your new best friend.” With friends like these, who needs serial killers?

Along with slashing innocent people, Chucky can now “connect and control all your digital products,” according to the TV talking head in the trailer.

If you think the voice of that eerie little doll sounds familiar, that’s because Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, voiced the blade-wielding toy.

Star Wars Legend Mark Hamill Says Disney Can’t Fire Him For Trolling His Fans

Mark Hamill boasts a long history of trolling his fans with fake Star Wars reveals, and during a recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor took a moment to reflect on his online mischief.

While discussing his role in the second season of Knightfall, Hamill joked that he took the job as a “challenge,” because “eventually Star Wars is going to go away.” He then suggested that after the release of J.J. Abrams’ The Rise of Skywalker, his days of screwing with his fans will finally come to an end:

“[Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker] comes out in December, so I only have eight months of trolling left.”

Hamill went on to revel in his ability to wind up his followers, pointing out that there’s not much Disney can do to stop him:

“I love to tease the fans online. It drives them crazy. I

Mark Hamill loves to tease Star Wars fans, and he doesn't really care if the Disney powers that be like it or not, or so he laughingly told Seth Meyers on Late Night Tuesday evening.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Equal Before God

Landry is a Templar once again, but on Knightfall Season 2 Episode 4, his success is short-lived.

Landry knew there would come a time when he would have to face-off against Philip, but he didn't think it would come the same day he got his Templar robe and sword back.

He didn't exactly face King Philip directly, but when Gawain and his men attacked the Lazarus Temple and found Landry, it might as well have been Philip who was holding the sword.

Now that Gawain knows where Landry is, the Templar's troubles are about to get worse.

There could have been more time to train, to relax, to bask in the glory of redemption, but that moment to take a breath no longer exists.

Knightfall Season 2 Episode 4

“Last night was only the beginning.”

By their very nature, historical dramas ultimately face a decision about the speed with which they reach their final conflict and resolution, and Knightfall is no exception to this dilemma. “Equal Before God” takes its time and covers a lot of ground, but in the end, we have to wonder how much can be addressed in the four remaining episodes. Will there be a third season? Only the History execs know for sure.

The multiple palace plot threads leave us to wonder whether some will simply be left unresolved or perhaps addressed in an unannounced third season. From the moment of her arrival, Margaret’s relationship with her sister-in-law sets up an adversarial relationship that momentarily
