Supernatural recap: “Meta Fiction”

Supernatural recap: "Meta Fiction"

This season of The CW’s Supernatural has been a little out of control, especially with the fallen angels, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) doing a lot of fighting—not that that’s anything unusual. What is unusual about this episode is that it seems as though Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) has decided to take matters into his own hands and come up with his own version of a story. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean are still on the hunt for Abaddon (Alaina Huffman). Their research gets interrupted, though, when Castiel (Misha Collins) calls with news that Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett) is still up … Continue reading

Awkward.

MTV’s teen dramedy Awkward. premieres its newest season on Tuesday, April 15.  Season 4 chronicles senior year for fictitious Palos Hills High School, so what challenges will the gang face this year? I chatted with Greer Grammer, who plays vapid but sweet Lissa, for the details on senior year. “We have college apps, college tours, class rankings come out, so it’s funny to see with all of Jenna’s misbehavior from last season where she is as far as school is concerned. There’s lots of fun stuff with Jenna and Tamara, and Jake and Tamara have their own thing, Jake kind … Continue reading

"Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" tying in stories with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

NOTE: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS ABOUT THE FILM CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER After being one of the many who saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past weekend (the film set a record for best April opening, grossing an estimated $96.2 million), I doubt if I was the only one who wondered how, if at all, the plot of that film would affect the TV series Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. After all, by the end of the film, SHIELD has been brought crashing down by Cap, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Falcon and others in light of the discovery that, … Continue reading

Devious Maids Season 2: Marc Cherry, Susan Lucci and Judy Reyes talk the tidy success Lifetime’s sensational soap

Devious Maids Season 2 channel guide cover

Devious Maids is cleaning up for Lifetime. The deliciously soapy nighttime drama, created by Desperate Housewives scribe Marc Cherry and co-executive produced by Eva Longoria, defied ABC’s rejection and early concerns about racial stereotyping to become the network’s fastest-growing scripted series ever, thanks in large part to a devoted tribe of fans who call themselves the Devious Army. “We understood that we were treading precarious waters doing a show about maids with all Latinas,” says Judy Reyes, who plays controlling mom and maid Zoila Diaz. “But we all knew that it was a moment to seize, because it was something … Continue reading

Twisted recap: “Danny, Interrupted”

Twisted recap: "Danny, Interrupted"

Everything has been spiraling out of control for all of the characters in ABC Family’s Twisted, and I’m not sure if things are going to get better any time soon. The mysterious crash that the police found in Vikram’s (T.J. Ramini) death has been in question ever since it was discovered by Kyle (Sam Robards). In the last episode the police found new evidence on the car from the crash, and much to our surprise, they found the fingerprints of Jack (Ivan Sergei) all over the car. He’s now the one in the spotlight who is being accused of killing … Continue reading

VOD Spotlight: Go Behind the Scenes on The Wolf of Wall Street set

This VOD Spotlight takes a peak at the making of The Wolf of Wall Street.” Jordan Belfort was a wealthy stockbroker in the 90s who was eventually convicted of fraud and sent to prison. His memoir, The Wolf of Wall Street, was made into a movie directed by Martin Scorsese. Scorsese had one condition for directing the movie The Wolf of Wall Street: He insisted on being able to really display the full extent of the over-the-top life of indulgence and excess that he read about in Jordan Belfort’s book and in the screenplay written by Terrence Winter. “I had … Continue reading
