Atticus Shaffer on THE MIDDLE’s “wonderful” Season Finale

Season 8 of THE MIDDLE comes to a fun ending tonight (worry not, it’s been renewed for S9) with an episode that shows the immediate aftermath of Axl being graduated, while Sue deals with a minor traffic incident and Brick’s long-gone lawn chair makes a surprise return. I got on the phone with Atticus Shaffer (Brick) late last week to preview the end of this season and he told me that he and his old buddy Lawn Chair, “pick back

Jasmin Savoy Brown on relating to THE LEFTOVERS and her upcoming series WILL

Jasmin Savoy Brown should look familiar as she’s steadily been popping in on some of TV’s biggest shows. Small parts on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, GREY’S ANATOMY, and GRIMM led to a longer stay on Freeform’s STITCHERS. Her most prominent role to date has been the fairly pivotal Evangeline ‘Evie’ Murphy on HBO’s THE LEFTOVERS. The third and final season started in April with (spoilers) the surprising death of her character as the show barrels on to what will likely be an

Sonya Walger previews THE CATCH season finale: “It’s very, very unexpected”

As season 2 of THE CATCH landed on ABC this spring, with a new focus on a lighter, more romantic-comedy quality, it didn’t let up on the danger and vengeance that ruled much of Season 1. Assassins, deaths, kidnapping, surprise daughters, surprise returns, you name it, Season 2 has had it, all the while pumping up the charm, humor, and energy. When I chatted with Sonya Walger (Margot) late last week to prepare for the finale, we looked back on

Thomas Barbusca Previews THE MICK’s S1 Finale

Tonight, the first season finale of my favorite new comedy of the season, THE MICK, airs at 8:30/7:30c. The episode promises to be another hilarious one, as FOX tells us, “The kids catch a pair of intruders trying to break into the Pemberton mansion; Mickey tries to protect the kids in a case of mistaken identity.” To celebrate the final episode of the year (and the fact that it’s not the final episode ever and we’ll see more of these

WonderCon 2017: Kevin Alejandro previews LUCIFER’s return

At WonderCon 2017 early in April, we spent some time with fellow press at round tables to discuss what’s coming next for LUCIFER and “Detective Douche” when new episodes resume tonight at 9/8c.  Kevin Alejandro previewed what he wants to see for Dan, and how he and Tom sometimes improv their way through bro-scenes. On being heretofore known as “Detective Douche”: “That’s given the audience something to hold onto.  Don’t take it away if it’s not broken.” On wanting to see Dan

Two of MToT’s favorite showrunners/EPs are Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson from FOX’s LUCIFER.  Always excited to talk about their show, these two joined us in Anaheim at WonderCon 2017 to talk about the end of Season 2 and what we should expect from Season 3 and the 4 standalone episodes ordered by FOX.   Check out the video above for more, but here are some highlights: On the four standalones, Ildy says: The four episodes – they call them standalone

WonderCon 2017: LUCIFER’s Lesley-Ann Brandt on what’s next for Maze

While in Anaheim for WonderCon 2017, we had the chance to sit with Lesley-Ann Brandt (Mazikeen) to talk about the return of LUCIFER and what we can expect.  In the video above, she goes into detail about the rewards of playing this character, and how her relationship with Scarlett Estevez (Trixie) is off-screen, among a few other topics.  LUCIFER is back at 9/8c tonight – check out the above for a preview of why to tune in! On adding layers

WonderCon 2017: LUCIFER’s Rachael Harris talks Linda, God, and stunt doubles

In Anaheim earlier in April, MyTakeOnTV joined some of our press colleagues for round table interviews with the cast of LUCIFER at Wonder Con 2017.  Rachael Harris (Dr Linda) was full of excitement about what’s coming for the rest of Season 2, which resumes tonight on FOX at 9/8c. On learning Lucifer/Maze/Amenadiel’s secrets: “It was very symbolic that she was able to say “I’m going to accept this about you even though you have so much shame and want to

Ashley Scott Opens up with MyTakeOnTV about Her Latest Project, MANNY DEAREST

Ashley Scott and I shared a wonderful phone conversation about her latest Lifetime project, Manny Dearest.  She was refreshingly open and down to earth.  She also recognized straight away that I’m Southern, a trait we have in common. So, how are you? Things are good.  We just bought a house in Topanga Canyon, which is an interesting place to raise our kids.  We’re hiking in the mountains and checking out all the critters. Your bio says you have two children?

THE BLACKLIST @ C2E2 2017 – Jon Bokenkamp, Amir Arison, & Susan Blommaert on what’s next

Over the weekend, a group of press met up with THE BLACKLIST stars Amir Arison and Susan Blommaert and their show’s creator Jon Bokenkamp at Chicago’s C2E2. Over the course of our long dive into the show, they gave us some insight into what comes next after last week’s (pretty amazing) Spring return that gave us reveal after reveal after reveal (after reveal, I mean, seriously…and “you must be Mr Kaplan?” COME ON!). Looking forward to the final Season 4 episodes,
