  • Trailers for Orphan Black, season 2

    Trailers for Orphan Black, season 2

    They are keeping the Orphan Black cards pretty close to the chest with these teasers. They fall into the “is that all there is” category. This one tells us even less. In spite of this pitifully lacking look at what season 2 promises, I cannot wait to see what Tatiana Maslany does with the multiple […]

  • Helix: Coming to SyFy in January

    Helix: Coming to SyFy in January

    SyFy is a favorite channel. I’ve loved Eureka, Warehouse 13, Defiance, Continuum, and Lost Girl. I even watch Haven sometimes, although it isn’t nearly as good as the other shows I mentioned. Helix, a show coming in the new year, looks like it may be another favorite. Here’s the trailer. Here are some things it […]

    Season 2 of Last Tango in Halifax begins on BBC One

    If you are in the U.K., you can see Last Tango in Halifax season 2 now. Here’s the trailer for season 2. For those of us in the U.S., here are some nice resources for interviews, image galleries and other goodies related to season 2. It will have to be enough to get us through […]

  • Fans React to Eli’s Hot Crush on The Good Wife

    Fans React to Eli’s Hot Crush on The Good Wife

    On this week’s episode of The Good Wife, America Ferrera returned as a guest. Eli goes all twitterpated over her. It’s sweet and charming. It’s nice to see Alan Cumming get to break out of his straight-and-serious-suit persona and go a little googly-eyed over a smart and beautiful woman. He’s normally surrounded by smart and […]

  • Scandal gets Epic with Everything’s Coming Up Mellie

    Scandal gets Epic with Everything’s Coming Up Mellie

    In many ways, the “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie” episode of Scandal belongs to Bellamy Young. The title is a big clue (duh). We see Mellie in new ways, learn some important backstory, and Bellamy Young enjoys an opportunity to stretch beyond her usual boundaries. Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) story is important to the overall arc of […]

  • Lisa Kudrow Kicks Butt in Scandal

    Lisa Kudrow Kicks Butt in Scandal

    The last couple of weeks Lisa Kudrow has been on Scandal. She plays Congresswoman Josephine Marcus who wants to run for President. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is helping with her image and her PR. Their first hurdle was a child the Congresswoman had at age 15. That child, played by Sally Pressman from Army Wives […]

  • Sarah Lancashire in Rose and Maloney

    Sarah Lancashire in Rose and Maloney

    I became a dedicated Sarah Lancashire devotee as I watched Last Tango in Halifax. Being an American who rarely gets to see British TV unless it’s broadcast on PBS, I had never heard of her before. It’s surprisingly difficult to learn anything about British actors in America. Europeans don’t have much interest in filling out […]

  • Lost Girl Season 3 Pre Show

    Lost Girl Season 3 Pre Show

    Spend 45 minutes with Jay Firestone, Lost Girl producer, and the main cast of Lost Girl as they talk about what to expect in season 3. The video was made after season 3 was shot, but before it was released, so we didn’t know about Tamsin. Present in this interview were Anna Silk, Zoie Palmer, […]
