This is a woman who is not to be trifled with!

Fantastic Voyage of the Deceased Mind: Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris Talk Stitchers!

STITCHERS - “A Stitch in Time” - Highly intelligent and emotionally distant, Kirsten Clark has an aptitude for technology but never expected that she’d be hacking into the minds of the recently deceased, in the series premiere of “Stitchers,” airing Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 9:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family. (ABC Family/Adam Taylor) KYLE HARRIS, EMMA ISHTA

ABC Family’s new series, Stitched (Tuesdays, 9/8C), is its first full tilt sci-fi/procedural/dramedy – with an extremely unusual premise: technology exists to allow a human consciousness to be ‘stitched’ into the brain of a recently deceased person and experience their most recent memories – which leads to being able to solve murders (among other things).

Kyle Harris plays Cameron Goodkin, creator of the technology and head of the Stitchers program (under the auspices of an ‘NSA-ish’ clandestine government agency. Emma Ishta plays Kirsten Clark, a grad student in computer sciences who suffers a curious disorder called temporal dysplasia – which makes her the ideal subject to be ‘stitched’ into the memories of the recently deceased.

Last week, Ishta and Harris spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about Stitchers and their roles in it.

American Odyssey’s Yousef Sweid and Peter Horton On Shakir Khan, Conspiracy Theories and More!

yousef_sweidPeter Horton

American Odyssey (NBC, Sundays, 10/9C) has been compared (positively and negatively) to Homeland. It’s a complex show with threads that link three different locales and sets of related characters to a conspiracy within the military-industrial complex – all tied together through a female Special Forces solider named Sgt. Odelle Ballard.

In last week’s episode, one of the few people she had come to trust to help her get home, Shakir Khan (Yousef Sweid), was killed. Shakir was unique and her death carried with it a unique impact. A few days ago, Sweid and series executive producer Peter Berg spoke about Shakir’s death, conspiracy theories and more with a group of bolggers/journalists.

M. Night Shyamalan Talks the Whys and Wherefores of Wayward Pines!

m-night-shyamalan1

M. Night Shyamalan, at his best, has given us twisty horror (The Sixth Sense) and possibly the best superhero origin story so far (Unbreakable). While his love of twist endings may have led to some (much) less successful movies, he has always produced films that weren’t pale imitations of what was already out there.

His new event series for FOX, Wayward Pines (Thursdays, 10/9C) – based on the novels by Blake Crouch (which I have not read – premieres tomorrow night and, while it might evoke echoes of The Prisoner or Twin Peaks, is a different animal completely. Recently Shyamalan spoke with a group of bloggers/journalist about the event series and why he decided to do it. He was completely charming (check out the wexchange with the moderator at the end of the call) and engaging throughout.

When Bones returns tomorrow night (FOX, Thursdays, 8/7C), it brings the reappearance of Cyndi Lauper’s psychic Avalon Harmonia – though she’s not visiting the Jeffersonian to help with the (as usual) messy case of the week.
