USA Picks Up 'Motive' Beginning With Unaired Season 3

USA Picks Up 'Motive' Beginning With Unaired Season 3
USA is the new American broadcaster for the Canadian crime drama Motive, and will begin by screening the third season that has never before been seen in the United States. Season 3 premieres on USA on Friday, Apr. 1 at 10 p.m.

Motive stars Kristin Lehman (The Killing) as Detective Angie Flynn in a cop show with a twist: it reveals the killer and the victim at the start of every episode, leaving audiences to watch Angie and her team connect the dots - and uncover the motive behind each crime.

ABC broadcast the first two seasons of Motive, then unceremoniously dropped the show citing low ra...

Where Are They Now: Lauren Holly, AKA Maxine From Picket Fences
Lauren Holly is known for starring in almost 90 episodes of Picket Fences - and appearing in Dumb & Dumber as object of affection Mary Swanson. Did you know that she almost starred in Ace Ventura as well? Let's catch up with Lauren and see where she is today...

First, some background. After getting her break and appearing in two episodes of Hill Street Blues, Holly joined the cast of All My Children and played Julie Rand Chandler for four years. She then starred in Dragon: The Bruce Lee story as Lee's wife, Linda.

Holly would go on to star in Picket Fences, created by David E. Kel...

Is ABC’s ‘Motive’ the New ‘Columbo’? Heck, yes.

8/28/2013 8:30pm EDT
I am totally digging the CTV Canadian import, ‘Motive’ on ABC whose season finale airs this week. ‘Motive’ follows lead detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman), her partner Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira), their newbie detective Brian (Brendan Penny), and their forensic scientist Betty (Lauren Holly) as they attempt to solve that week’s murder mystery. Like any procedural, we see the crime and victim by opening credits. Unlike most procedurals, we know the killer early on. As each episode progresses, we watch the motive team solve the case and learn what drove the killer to murder.

Although she...

'NCIS' Recap: 'Truth Or Consequences'

9/23/2009 8:56am EDT
Last season, NCIS ended with an in-the-middle-of-a-Jack-Bauer-esque-torture-session Ziva, and it picks up a few months later with the same Middle Eastern torturer, Salim, injecting Tony with truth serum. It goes to commercial break with Tony telling Salim his mission is vengeance for Ziva, "I'm here to kill you." And there we have it-- vengeance has always been the fuel for team Gibbs as well as a strong unrelenting theme of the show. Tony hints at this when Salim asks about the fourth member of the team. Tony responds telling him that they lost her four years ago-referencing the loss of...

'NCIS' Season Finale: 'Aliyah'

5/20/2009 10:21am EDT
Cold open on Ziva driving in her Mini asking for an extraction. The episode opens with her POV during the last minute of last week's episode- the fight between Tony and Michael. At the hospital Tony watches Ziva silently from the doorway. Gibbs talks with Tony and then moves to Ziva. Michael is dead, and Ziva strikes out, blaming Tony. Next day McGee and Gibbs go into Ziva's apartment, Gibbs questioning McGee about the tension between Tony and Ziva over Michael. As her building explodes in front of McGee and Gibbs, so does the case. While this incident opens discourse on the tenuous ...

'NCIS' Recap: A Fantasatic Set Up For The Finale

5/13/2009 11:42am EDT
NCIS opens with a intrusion via a dead man smacking into the window looking in at a poker party at Sec Nav's pad with heads of CIA, FBI, and ICE. After the credits roll we are finally sans spin-off debacle cast. As Tony, McGee, and Ziva banter back and forth outside the crime scene the credits on the bottom show that FBI Special Agent Fornell (Joe Spano) will make an appearance. Inside the residence is a well-loved turf war over the case- Gibbs wins territory. ICE agent Foster-Yates in charge of security left an open spot in the perimeter, allowing for someone to penetrate and place lis...

'NCIS' Recap Commentary: 'Legend: Part 2'

5/6/2009 9:46am EDT
The second part of this mediocre two-parter of NCIS begins with Ziva identifying Michael Rivkin (the man Ziva met secretly in the park in the previous installation) to Gibbs and the LA team. The new crew interrogates Rivkin… they are still two-dimensional even though the creators are desperately trying to suture them in via Callen (Chris O'Donnell) and Macy's relationships with Gibbs and then the Ziva/Moussad relationship. Macy's questioning of Ziva's loyalty to Gibbs is a transparent attempt to tie in her history (aka previous 'NCIS' episodes) to new viewers to force them to go back and ...

'NCIS' Recap: Legend Part 1

4/29/2009 11:12am EDT
The episode opens on the unfortunate new NCIS spin off crew, in a two episode effort to introduce to you the spin-off of a spin-off… so, really the Bellisario version Law and Order: Criminal Intent or CSI: New York… in other words, practically doomed to fail from the start. After the credits roll we move back to DC, with Tony and McGee in a typical banter. With Ziva taking a private call, it can only be assumed it is setting up for her leaving the country later in the season. Why? Any time music is cued on Los Angeles is a dreaded place. The last time the crew was there former director...

Worst Dates In Movies

6/16/2008 8:45am EDT
Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo
First dates are always awkward. Between not knowing what to say, fumbling with the check when it arrives at the table, or wondering whether there will be a kiss at the end of the night, these situations are ones people can't wait to overcome. Sometimes first dates can be disastrous from the start, and you hope to God you never see the other person again, that is if you don't die of utter embarrassment right there on the spot.

Hollywood loves to over emphasize situations and showcase things that probably would never happen in real life; at least you hope they'll never happen to you! He...

Asked if he would at least give former Playboy playmate McCarthy a ring to cement their love, the 45-year-old actor replied: "I bought her a Chloe purse. Isn't that good enough?"
