'Revolution' Review: 'One Riot, One Ranger'

10/24/2013 9:38am EDT
I’m not going to bore you with repeated statements about how impressed I am with Revolution’s upgraded performance, but after “One Riot, One Ranger,” I’m now absolutely sure more has happened in the past five episodes than in all of last season’s 22 episodes combined. The action-packed hour not only gave us some interesting intel, but also gave closure to the split group storyline by reuniting all of our main characters for the first time since May (recall that we began the season with everyone already split, hinging on flashbacks to show us exactly what went down that caused Charlie to str...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Patriot Games'

10/17/2013 10:27am EDT
I’ll start by being completely honest: Revolution is not my favorite show, but it’s worlds better than it was last season. More importantly? The program is finally, finally, finally getting on track to be what it should have been all along. (Remember how I pointed out that things were getting progressively darker? Apparently now we’ve gotten to the point where we have to put up one of those violence warnings. I’m not sure why NBC decided to move the show to an earlier hour only to have it be ten times more graphic than it ever was last season, but I also don’t claim to understand the inner ...

'Revolution' Review: 'There Will Be Blood'

10/3/2013 8:50am EDT
Revolution continues its revamped second season by picking up where we left off last week, with Aaron waking up after being mysteriously revived. It seems like this is going to be one of the bigger ongoing plot lines, and as much as some people might think it’s a bit “hokey” I actually find it interesting – we’re not only giving Zak Orth a storyline with potential, it’s also one that’s big enough to involve other characters (case in point, we see a bit more of Rachel’s uneasiness and guilt as Aaron tries to reconcile his resurrection.) While Aaron believes that his revival is due to the nan...

'Revolution' Season 2 Premiere: 'Born In The USA'

9/26/2013 9:55am EDT
Revolution has had an interesting journey.

The post-apocalyptic series premiered last fall with a promising cast, intriguing concepts, and skilled show runners – all the right ingredients for everything that equal buzz and success. But Revolution’s first season was plagued with misdirection; some good episodes balanced out by not so good ones as well as muddled storytelling. Often, its actors were the saving grace of an otherwise bland hour, and a mid-season setback in the form of a four-month hiatus didn’t help matters.

When we sat down with EP Eric Kripke at Comic Con, he revealed his a...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Children Of Men'

5/29/2013 3:55pm EDT
Revolution - Season 1
In the first of its final two hours, Revolution delivered on most of what it seems to have been promising all season – lots of action, character development payoff, and answers to questions that we just couldn’t seem to figure out. In fact, the hour was wrought with so much action that it makes us wonder if the show left us anything for its final episode, save for an inevitable Monroe/Miles showdown and a final battle towards turning the power back on – which, as we now know, could result in either success…or death. For some time, we’ve wondered how Revolution would move towards its next se...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Clue'

5/21/2013 3:21pm EDT
Revolution - Season 1
With two episodes to go in Revolution’s first season, time is moving fast. Maybe too fast. While “Clue” benefited from a good pace and decent use of most of its cast members (something that I feel has been wavering from episode to episode) it also seemed a little rushed, as if the show was trying to cram in as much as possible in the third-to-last hour. With Monroe now setting up camp at the The Tower (the basis of where we’ve been trying to go all season) Miles and Co. on their way there via helicopter, and Rachel and Aaron finally enacting their revenge plan, it looks like we’re headed to...

'LOST': The Ten Best Episodes

4/6/2011 8:34am EDT
Now that 'LOST' has been off the air almost a year, it seems the appropriate time to re-visit the series.

In the coming weeks, I will re-visit many series - some old, some new, some current - and reveal my picks for the ten best episodes of each.

With the 'LOST' anniversary looming, here then is my list of the ten best episodes of the series, in descending order. It was very difficult to narrow down. Do you agree? Please sound off in the comments.

10. 'There's No Place Like Home' - Season 4, Episode 13

The fourth season finale features bloody battles (Ben stabbing Keamy), emotional ...

'V' Recap: 2x01 - 'Red Rain' Brings The Drama And Keeps It Coming

1/5/2011 10:08am EST
“V” returned last night, to my everlasting joy and entertainment. In case you missed season one, let me give you a brief recap: in this adaptation of a mid-80s TV series, reptilian aliens calling themselves Visitors come to Earth, looking like humans. They seem helpful, sweet and peaceful, but a small section of resistance fighters (lead by Elizabeth Mitchell, best known as Juliet from Lost) band together to take out the aliens and keep Earth safe.

When we last left our valiant alien fighters, they had wiped out Anna’s unborn army of reptilian Visitors and Anna retaliated by turning the ...

Returning Mid-Season Shows: What's Worth Watching?

1/4/2011 12:00pm EST
The new 'American Idol'
We’ve already been over what new shows are premiering mid-season. There are lots of returning favorites as well, and some promise to be some of this year’s highest-rated programs. Others are sure to be stinkers. Here’s our guide to what’s returning, and what’s worth watching.

‘V’ – ABC, Jan. 4

Starring Elizabeth Mitchell (‘LOST’) as FBI agent Erica Evans and Morena Baccarin as the leader of the visitors, this season kicks off after a long hiatus. ABC calls it “a show we’d like to run as uninterrupted as possible.” Time will tell if the long wait has dented the show’s audience. Anyo...

'Glee,' HBO's 'The Pacific' Land Massive Emmy Nominations

7/8/2010 10:26am EDT
Hit TV musical "Glee" is set to be the toast of the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards after landing a massive 19 nominations.

The comedy about a group of high school students in a choir club will fight for the Outstanding TV Comedy prize against "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Modern Family," "Nurse Jackie," "The Office" and "30 Rock," which has taken home the title for the last three years.

"Glee's" leading stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele have been nominated in the male and female categories for the outstanding comedy actor awards, while their co-star Chris Colfer has received a best supporting...

Enigmatic Final Scene Of 'LOST' Added By Network - Not Producers

5/27/2010 11:05pm EDT
The final scene shown during ABC's Sunday night broadcast of the "LOST" series finale was added to the show by the network - not executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse - according to a report on Entertainment

The last images of Oceanic Flight 815 wreckage strewn across the beach with only the soothing sound of crashing waves in the distance quickly became one of the show's biggest mysteries.

But a spokesman for ABC told the L.A. Times, "The images shown during the end credits of the 'Lost' finale, which included shots of Oceanic 815 on a deserted beach, were not p...

'LOST' Final Recap: A Fitting Ending That Should Stand Up Against Time

5/24/2010 1:35pm EDT
Lost - Finale
This might be the most difficult thing I've ever written, and I can't even figure out how to get started. LOST has changed television, and if you don't believe that, you don't understand what an incredible show it was. Even haters can realize that with its original plotline and encouragement of science fiction in a major network, it opened doors for shows outside of the box to maybe be taken more seriously than they used to. It was a community show, one that encouraged the millions of fans to think and discuss and speculate together in a way that had never been seen. It decided to cancel it...

'V' Recap: 'Fruition'

5/13/2010 3:24pm EDT
V is almost finished with its first season run. The finale runs next Tuesday, and that will also be around the time that ABC announces what shows it plans to drop or renew. Right now V could go either way, but personally I would suggest they give the show another season. ABC will likely drop their other sci-fi Flashforward, which turned out to be more of a disappointment than expected, and it would be a shame to lose both of these shows without giving one of them a chance. V has picked up the pace in the past few weeks and it definitely has potential. With the plight of humanity looking mor...

Everything You Need To Know About The End Of 'Lost' Is In This Week's Special Collector's Edition Of EW

5/6/2010 2:29pm EDT
Entertainment Weekly has been obsessing over "Lost" since it first premiered in 2004, and now that the end is near they have put together the ultimate handbook to get viewers ready for the remaining episodes before the series signs off. From the big finale preview (Entertainment Weekly was on set) to recaps of every season to an oral history of how it all began, this week's special collector's issue has the entire Island covered.

For the filming of the pivotal sequence that's part of the final 10 minutes of "Lost's" two-hour series finale, nearly two dozen cast members are in attendance, ...

V Recap: 'Heretic's Fork'

4/28/2010 8:48pm EDT
V Recap
So now the big secret about Valerie's pregnancy is out, and the V's are not happy. Anna looks scarier than usual when she calls the leaders of all the other ships and tells them the baby must be found. Apparently she thinks if humans know about the breeding, they can start specifically breeding hybrids to match the V's off. Does that mean hybrids could even be dangerous enough? And it's just a baby, unless it grows really fast. Is this the lizard version of the Twilight baby? It seems so because Anna's little soldier babies might be ready to hunt down some human meat. Run, Valerie, run!


'V' Recap -'We Can't Win'

4/23/2010 3:45pm EDT
Previously on V, Ryan's girlfriend figured out he's not who he said he is, Tyler found out he may not be his father's son after all, and Father Hotness asked Chad Decker to not be such a Machiavellian jerk. John May turned out to be Sam Anders (Michael Trucco from Battlestar Galactica), Anna gave birth to creepy soldier egg babies, and Ryan apparently killed him. Or not? Who knows.

Erica swears up and down that she was only with Tyler's father, so she has no idea how the DNA doesn't match, and this sounds like a fun mystery they'll hopefully answer soon. Could he be the first V-Human hybri...

Elizabeth Mitchell: 'I'm A 40-Year-Old Female Action Hero'

4/13/2010 3:00pm EDT
Elizabeth Mitchell
Actress Elizabeth Mitchell feels guilty for losing so much weight while filming TV remake V - because she's always urged women to love their curves.

The former Lost star plays an alien-fighting federal agent in the new series, based on the 1983 show, and the role involves plenty of stunt-work and high-energy action scenes.

Mitchell's body has been transformed by her tough training regime - but instead of being pleased with her new slim figure, she's feeling "terrible".

She tells the Press Association, "I've lost weight which makes me feel terrible because I've always said that women s...

'V' Recap - 'Welcome To The War'

3/31/2010 4:10pm EDT
V's back after an incredibly long hiatus, which means they are required to cram as much information into the 'previously' section as they can. Granted ABC only showed four episodes of the show before taking a four month break, but that's still a great deal of plot to cover. Basically, the Visitors arrive on Earth in the form of gorgeous, peace-loving humanoids. They cure illnesses and solve wars, they say they want to help protect humanity, and of course this means they are evil, evil, evil. We were introduced to FBI Agent Erica Evans, played by the marvelous Elizabeth Mitchell, as she trie...

'Lost' Delivers In Final Season Premiere

2/3/2010 9:00pm EST
LOST theories, LOST recaps, LOST, Evangeline Lilly, Matthew Fox,
The most anticipated television return has finally come and gone: "LOST" is back! On a personal note, my Facebook friends page and Twitter went wild with people screaming about "LOST" for the entire day, and that's how it should be. This is such an interactive show, with the fans all excitedly making parties and discussing for hours what everything really means. The "Lost Experience" proved how fanatic the viewers were to take clues and run with them, and no matter how much "LOST" abuses us with more questions and confusion, there's an addictive quality that cannot be denied. This is the la...

The show that revolutionized primetime proves once again why it is television's most addictive and creative series, as the epic story of Lost twists, turns and spirals through time in its brilliant fifth season.

Destiny sends the Oceanic 6 back to the Island and into the heart of the enigmatic Dharma Initiative.

30 Days Of Christmas: Week One

Home Alone
One holiday. One month. One woman. Thirty individual movies. Readers, ready? Go!

Day One: Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2009 - Home Alone

When I was a kid, the magic of "Home Alone" was in what Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) was able to accomplish on his own. I was younger than his character when the film was first released, and watching him rig his house full of booby traps to catch the bad guys was almost inspirational. I found myself digging through my Playskool toy bins after returning home from the theater to see if I, too, could pull something like that off if situation cal...

'V' Recap:'The Visitors Are Here'

11/4/2009 12:11pm EST
ABC's "V" is finally here, one of the most highly anticipated shows of the season, and it is coming out strong. The show is a remake of a sci-fi miniseries that lost a great deal of its popularity once it turned into a regular TV show. It looks like ABC hopes to reboot and renew the fanbase, so everyone who loves Nazi-like reptile aliens with a secret plan to take over the Earth ... be prepared. The Visitors are here.

It is a quiet normal day on Earth. FBI Agent Erica (aka Juliet from "Lost") wakes up to feel the world shaking a little, and she goes to check on her teenage son Tyler. ...

The Sad Victims Of 'Lost' Deserve A Second Chance At Life

8/3/2009 1:32pm EDT
There were not that many secrets or hints given at the "Lost" panel during the San Diego Comic Con, but this was hardly a surprise since they notoriously guard their spoilers every year. One of the major pieces of information gathered, however, was that two fan favorites would be returning to the show for the final season, despite their apparent deaths: Daniel Faraday and Juliet Burke.

For those who do not recall, Faraday was one of the scientists on the freighter who was there to study the island and/or "rescue" the survivors. He quickly became a favorite because of his intelligence, g...

Two Sci-Fi Shows We Can't Wait For This Fall: 'V' & 'FlashForward'

7/9/2009 10:08am EDT
Science fiction has taken somewhat of an upward turn in recent years, becoming attractive to more than the small cultish fan groups and growing to the universal mainstream.

With the success of shows like "Lost," "Fringe," "Heroes," "Battlestar Galactica" and "X-Files," sci-fi is steadily becoming worth investing in by the bigger networks.

Starting in the fall, ABC is releasing two new big sci-fi shows to the mainstream to see if we have a taste for it, and if you're any kind of sci-fi fan at all, these are the new shows you should be looking forward to.


Although an exact da...

A Few Must-See TV Shows This Fall (See Clips!)

6/9/2009 11:40am EDT
Last week's TV upfronts brought some re-vamps and a whole lot of raised eyebrows, but never fear, is here to sort through the soon-to-be-canceled masses and select a few must-see gems.

Melrose Place Reboot

The CW may have angered some Jason Dohring fans by not picking up his political drama for Fall 2009 - instead opting to choose just another revamp to add to the line-up. The new "Melrose Place" may follow the same formula as the new version of Beverly Hills 90210: campy primetime soap relationship drama set in the shiny, pretty people part of Los Angeles. It will fe...

5 Best & Worst Angelina Jolie Movies

7/10/2008 8:49am EDT
Angelina Jolie
She's a humanitarian, a mother to four children (with two on the way), a partner to one of the sexiest men alive, and arguably one of the most beautiful women in the world. Angelina Jolie is a force of nature and has come a long way from the wild woman with vials of her husband's blood to the UN's Goodwill Ambassador she is today. With a variety of awards under her belt, including an Oscar, she is an acclaimed actress with some impressive -- and horrifying -- work to be proud of. Here is a list of the five best and worst Angelina Jolie movies in no particular order.

A Memo To Emmy Voters

6/17/2008 10:04am EDT
Big Love
Starpulse writer Andrew Payne is getting sick of the snubs by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. And even though Katherine Heigl doesn't want to be an Emmy contender this year, there are plenty of deserving shows, actors and actresses that should be recognized. Here are Payne's suggestions for those casting their ballots this week:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Emmy Voters:

I am writing because I understand your ballots for this year's nominees are due this week. In the past, you've had quite a difficult time selecting the proper honorees. I'm not blaming you. I completely understa...

Starpulse Exclusive: 'Lost' Star Michael Emerson Opens Up About The New 'Violent' Season (Part 1)

11/7/2007 8:00am EST
Michael Emerson
Unfortunately, the new season of Lost doesn't air until February. Fortunately, Starpulse had a chance to chat with Michael Emerson, who plays conniving "other" Ben Linus, about last season's shocking finale, some of the things viewers can expect in season four, and what it's like to play such a manipulating character.

Speaking to us from Waikiki where he resides apart from most of the cast (to avoid those pesky traffic cops, perhaps?), Emerson gave us an inside peek into the world of "Lost," including hints about the bloodbath we should expect come February. Following is part one of ...
