BLACK DYNAMITE is slowly approaching the end of Season 2.  Of course, I couldn’t just end Season 2 without one more interview from one of the many talented cast members of this hilarious show.   Black Dynamite (Michael Jai White) is still the tall, dark and handsome hero saving the day accompanied by his faithful posse  Bullhorn (Byron Minns), Cream Corn (Tommy Davidson), and Honeybee (Kym Whitley).

I had an incredible conversation with both Michael Jai White and Tommy Davidson about “Black Dynamite”.   Although we don’t have that conversation on video, I was able to relay some of that conversation through another fantastic interview with Tommy Davidson!

FX’s Sons Of Anarchy is back for season 7!  This season begins ten days later with Jax in jail on a parole violation and dealing with the loss of the woman he loved.  He then plans for complete and merciless retribution with the support of the outlaw motorcycle club (MC).  The illegal arms business hidden behind the guise of the automotive shop continues to be driven by the seduction of money, power, and blood. As the last season of this popular show, be prepared for anything.

“Person Of Interest” is back for season 4 with its premiere on September 23, 2014! As season 3 ended, the  “Machine team” were forced to take on new identities as they avoided the evil Samaritan. As showrunner Greg Plageman puts it, “It is a war between two machines.”  He further notes, “If those three seasons were about surveillance, we think this is the season about artificial intelligence.”  I caught up with Greg  to discuss this exciting new season of “Person Of Interest.”

Skilled computer hacker Root (Amy Acker) had a rocky start with Sameen Shaw and the rest of the Machine Gang in season 1.  Later, she became a vital link to talking with The Machine.  As season 3 ended, she created seven blind spots in Samaritan, corresponding to seven separate identities to ensure survival of the team.  The team dispersed with their new identities.  As season 4 starts, Harold Finch lost his desire for the numbers and The Machine.  Root reignites that passion and meets up with the rest of the gang as new challenges await them. I chatted with Amy about her character and this current season of “Person Of Interest.”
