Finally, Battle Creek fans, we know the ghosts that haunt Milt Chamberlain. We are presented with what seems like Milt’s regular routine: wake up, throw on a hoodie, chat in the elevator of his building and drive out to a park, where he chants his mantra — “forward, positive, embrace the day” — then screams his lungs out before going for a run. His run and workout are punishingly intense. You can almost sense his anger in the hard foot falls and the way he attacks the exercise equipment. He returns to his car, sweaty and tired from the exertion, but … Continue reading

Despite its very public slide from Cannes Film Festival opener and much-anticipated theatrical release to Lifetime movie of the week, you could do worse than to spend the waning hours of your Memorial Day watching Grace of Monaco. Especially if you’re a fan of Nicole Kidman and her considerable knack for playing steely stunners. There. Permission granted to watch it and enjoy it. How you handle the rest is up to you. If you approach Grace as a sort of weird amalgamation of golden-hued rags-to-riches princess tale and G-rated political-intrigue drama/mystery — rather an accurate biography of the cool blond Hollywood ingénue turned misunderstood princess — you’ll … Continue reading
Although infamous cult leader Charles Manson initiates the events of the new historical fiction series Aquarius, he at times is almost relegated to the background in the midst of other cases and events, though you can always sense his lurking presence as the Summer of Love begins its descent into the darkness that ended the 1960s. “[Manson]’s sort of this symbol, more or less, of the change that was happening,” says costar Grey Damon, who plays young undercover cop Brian Shafe. Shafe is teamed with veteran homicide detective Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, who also is an executive producer) to find … Continue reading

When Shapiro was in her early twenties, she spent a few years working as a producer on ABC’s reality behemoth during its fourth and fifth seasons (that’s the disastrous “Bob and Estella” and “Jesse and Jessica” for those of you keeping score). … Continue reading
