The Last Ship Episode 6: Where Have All the Calm Men Gone?

the-last-ship-lockdown

As we fade in on “Lockdown,” Episode 6 of TNT’s The Last Ship, the music clues us in that things on the ship are tense as we scan past angry, tense faces. A comms officer mentions that people are frustrated that they can’t communicate with the outside world. The ship’s officers discuss over dinner the impact of keeping last week’s events in Nicaragua on the crew and decide that trust is necessary for them to continue on with enough time for Rachel to make the vaccine and safely deliver it. The Captain makes a ship-wide announcement that we’re headed home to the U.S. and that … Continue reading

Teen Wolf Season 4 Episode 5 Recap: “The Dead Pool”

Teen Wolf Ep 5 Violet

MTV’s Teen Wolf Season 4 aired its fifth episode last night, leaving us with more questions than answers. The confusion started with a girl running around Beacon Hills High. Not only was it odd for her to be running around at night, but she had blood on her hands — or should I say hand, since she later revealed that one of them had been cut off, which made some sense once Violet showed up with her trusty burning lasso. Unfortunately, it was the end of the road for this new wolf girl when she is able to escape Violet, … Continue reading

Heaven Is for Real is based on the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name and tells the true story of a boy in a small town who has a near-death experience and claims to have seen things in heaven that he couldn’t have known about. The filmmakers knew that the role of Colton Burpo was a critical one for the film. Director Randall Wallace explains, “Finding Colton was a huge challenge because the movie could not succeed if Colton seemed artificial. If you believed that he was just reciting lines, you would never believe any … Continue reading

Cedar Cove

Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove returns to Hallmark Channel on Saturday for its sophomore season with Sue Tenney (7th Heaven) taking over as showrunner, a move that excites the show’s star, Andie MacDowell. “I feel like Sue has a good handle on things,” she says. “She was able to get us out of all of the high drama that we were left in, and maneuver us into some other situations that I think are actually more interesting.” The high drama to which MacDowell is referring is Season 1’s sensational conclusion, where MacDowell’s Olivia reunited with her love, Jack, her daughter’s Justine’s … Continue reading
