RBS-Featured

I don’t dislike RED BAND SOCIETY.  Not fully.  I liked Octavia Spencer very much.  And Dave Annable is great and beautiful with that salt-and-pepper hair going on.  And I really like everything regarding Thomas Ian Nicholas and Wilson Cruz and Griffin Dunne.  Are you sensing a theme yet?  Because therein lies the problem – I should like at least something related to the kids in the show that make up 60-70% of the cast and story.  But I didn’t.  Nothing

I struggled with what words to use to describe my feelings for THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA, premiering tonight on NBC after a special two hour AMERICA’S GOT TALENT finale (though, you wouldn’t know that unless you paid attention to the annoying and silent pop up things that appear during other shows, since NBC itself keeps saying it premieres NEXT week on 9/24…but I digress).  This image is all I could come up with**: **What I’m really trying to say is

HAVEN returns to Syfy tonight at 8/7c with an all new episode that picks up minutes after the finale that found Duke bleeding from his face holes, Jennifer possibly not breathing, William vanquished to another realm, Dave shot, Vince worried, and Nathan not exactly sure what comes next. And Audrey?  Well, she’s not exactly Audrey these days, now is she? What follows is an exciting premiere that has our gang trying to save Audrey from the Mara inhabiting her body

They share a little bit about the final season,

At Comic Con 2014, I was lucky enough to spend another Sunday morning with the always wonderful cast of SONS OF ANARCHY (premiering Tuesday, 9/9 at 10/9c on FX).  We were gathered more to talk about the show coming to an end, than to talk about what we’ll see in the Final Ride. Katey Sagal’s Gemma got herself into a little bit of a pickle at the end of Season 6 involving a grill fork and some skull cracking.  She
