'The Firm' Recap: 'Chapter Eight' (1.08)

February 26th, 2012 1:05am EST
The Firm
The Firm hit a rough patch in its first Saturday outing. It feels less disjointed this time out, but it's still missing that something that held my attention when it began.

The cops cut Mitch loose, while Ray, Abby and Andrew (yep, Shaun Majumder's back this week!) worry over him. The crazy turn of events prompts Mitch to confide in Andrew, because he doesn't yet know what Andrew's up to, which means he has no problem telling Andrew everything about the Sarah Holt case. Of course, this information finds its way back to Alex Clark shortly thereafter. She decides it's time to "bring ...

'The Firm' Recap: 'Chapter Seven' (1.07)

February 19th, 2012 12:59am EST
The Firm
If you're reading this, you know that The Firm has been bounced to Saturday nights, and therefore probably doesn't have much time left on the air. It's an unfortunate coincidence that its first episode post-the bad news feels like the fight's going out of the show.

Mitch is being interrogated about Martin's death by a stereotypical blustery cop, who seems completely incompetent to handle the investigation. Mitch points out that the hotel room door was obviously kicked in, which he didn't do, and yet the cop is happy to put that aside and continue to treat Mitch as if he's already ...

'The Firm' Recap: 'Chapter Six' (1.06)

February 3rd, 2012 2:01am EST
The Firm
This week's sixth installment of The Firm belongs to its guest star, but also reveals some important pieces of the puzzle, so it's a necessary stepping stone to bigger things.

Confined to an interrogation room at the local police precinct, now the sole suspect in Martin's death, Mitch is glaring a hole in the one-way mirror, while one of Martin's colleagues lays it on thick for the cops. Our favorite lawyer is pretty much like a caged animal.

Two weeks earlier, not noticing there's the mob henchman outside his house, Mitch is getting his first look at the list of nurses that Mar...

'The Firm' Recap: 'Chapter Four' (1.04)

January 20th, 2012 3:06am EST
The Firm
After a strong start, The Firm's fourth chapter wavers - but that also serves to reinforce what makes this show tick and why the series should stick to its guns.

We start forward again, with Mitch having gotten off the phone with Andrew, and meeting his family at the dock. He tells them that Martin is dead and explains what we've been seeing for the past three weeks. "I can't know what we're into until I know what this is about," he says, and heads off to find Andrew at the same time that the cops want to talk to him.

There's finally a title sequence this week, and it's pretty n...

'The Firm' Recap: 'Chapter Three' (1.03)

January 13th, 2012 2:25am EST
The Firm
After Sunday's thorough two-hour premiere, The Firm arrives on its regular date and time with another piece that sheds more light on its heroes. Satisfaction from it likely depends on what element you were watching for. It was light on the conspiracy, but strong on character, which the show has already proven is its strong suit.

In case you missed it last time, we get another look at Martin committing suicide off the hotel balcony. Now we also get to see Mitch making a very narrow escape from said hotel room, taking more than one painful leap of his own. Unfortunately, the quick ...

'The Firm' Recap: 'Pilot/Chapter One' (1.01/1.02)

January 9th, 2012 2:07am EST
The Firm
The story of The Firm began in a novel 20 years ago, then was adapted into a film, and now it has arrived on NBC as a weekly series. Considered on its own merits, the TV program stands as an intriguing series that is not simply a conspiracy play.

It's ten years after the events of the previous incarnations (so 2003), and Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas of Sweet Home Alabama and Glory Road) is running from a trio of thugs in broad daylight in Washington, D.C. He calls his wife Abby (Human Target guest star Molly Parker) from a pay phone, saying, "They could be listening...it's happening again...

'Dexter' Recap: 'Nebraska' (6.08)

November 13th, 2011 9:55pm EST
Dexter
After being visited by his dead brother last week, Dexter Morgan is a little messed up in this week's Dexter. Who could blame him? Plus, we take a step back to the fantastic fourth season...

If Brother Sam was the angel in Dexter's life, Brian (Christian Camargo) does a great job of being the devil on the other shoulder. "You don't turn the other cheek, you slice it," he reminds Dex, whose world is further rocked when Debra informs him that Arthur Mitchell's wife and daughter have been killed. She thinks it's the Trinity Killer striking again, but Dexter knows better. He suspects th...

IFF Boston Review: 'Trigger'

May 2nd, 2011 9:02pm EDT
Trigger
For some rock n’ roll bands, the price of making successful music, is an intensely screwed up personal life. All of the backstage drama between members often leads to powerful creative influences that can be parlayed into hit songs; however the pressures of fame can form a dangerous powder keg. Just one spark of conflict caused by a drug or alcohol induced argument can ignite this explosive potential, tearing the band apart.

A prime example of a commercially popular band that suffered from this problem is the female rock group The Runaways. The pitfalls of fame affected these young wo...
