Latest Takes

Z NATION’s Keith Allan previews what comes next


Z NATION airs Friday nights on Syfy, and as the show has progressed, we’ve seen the team work together to, somewhat reluctantly, save a man named Murphy who holds what could be the cure or vaccine for Zombie and zombieism. On tonight’s all new episode, the gang encounters seemingly utopian cult and face major consequences. Keith Allan plays Murphy and we recently spent some time chatting about how he got involved in the show, what else he’s done for Syfy,

Chris Vance talks THE TRANSPORTER Series coming to TNT


Saturday, October 18 (at 9/8c), TNT will premiere THE TRANSPORTER television series, based on the movies of the same name, this time starring familiar face and MToT favorite Chris Vance as Frank, the man transporting the packages people need from Point A to Point B and getting into a few scrapes along the way. I had a chance to talk to Chris about why he wanted to do this show, why fans will like it, and what we’ll see as

Quick Take: NBC’s MARRY ME is fun


I was a huge fan of HAPPY ENDINGS, and Casey Wilson before that. I love Ken Marino more than most things in life. Together, they make up the leads of NBC’s new comedy series MARRY ME, premiering tonight at 9/8c, after ABOUT A BOY. The show follows Wilson’s Annie and Marino’s Jake as they deal with their relationship. Annie gets mad that they’re not engaged right when Jake gets down on one knee, and the rest of the pilot is

Comic Con 2014: Talking THE FLASH with the cast and creatives!


Hot on the heels of the fan favorite, ARROW, a new adaptation of The Flash was a gamble. However, the right casting and writing teams have been dispatched and it seems pretty clear that; it’s gonna be a great show! During San Diego Comic Con 2014, I got the chance to sit down with the leading cast members and an executive producer; we didn’t get much time, but hey. What did you expect from a show about the fastest man



Tonight on ABC, their latest multi-camera comedy, CRISTELA, a throw-back-feeling camera loosely based on a stand-up’s life and family (the charmingly funny Cristela Alonzo), finally premieres. And if I’m being completely honest with you, it is one of my top comedies of the new breed. Alonzo stars in the self-titled comedy that follows a Texas lawyer (who is finally almost really a lawyer), dealing with her very close Mexican-American family and the expectation that she become a maid or call

Quick Take: A to Z on NBC is charming


A TO Z, premiering tonight on NBC at 9:30/8:30c, is a charming show about Andrew (Ben Feldman, whom I adore) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, whom I also adore) who locked eyes at a concert years ago, and now they live and work near each other, which Andrew deems fate and Zelda deems coincidence. The show follows the would-be couple from their meet cute to what happens to their relationship, and every little thing between.  There’s a (cliched) bearded sidekick and



BAD JUDGE on NBC, premiering tonight at 9/8c, has a title that tells you all you need to know. Kate Walsh plays a JUDGE (who, from the looks of it, even if she’s drunk all the time, does understand the law); the show itself is pretty BAD (BAD + JUDGE, ya know?). It tries to be a workplace comedy, but it falls short on the comedy, with Walsh trying way too hard at playing the Honorable Rebecca Wright, a young,

Comic Con 2014: Honorary MToT Member Mel talks REIGN with Megan Follows


We were lucky enough to have a pinch hitter for some CBS-produced shows at Comic Con!  Our old friend, Melissa from Nice Girls relished the opportunity to talk to the legend that is Megan Follows from CW’s REIGN (and ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, come on!) along with showrunner Laurie McCarthy about bringing REIGN to SDCC and what comes next – check out the round table! REIGN premieres tonight at 9/8c on The CW.
