Major Crimes: The Complete Third Season – Solid Procedural Solidly Proceeding!
Major Crimes is about to enter its fourth season on TNT – not too shabby for a spinoff show; especially when the mothership was Kyra Sedgwick showcase The Closer. Although Major Crimes also has a spectacular female lead in Mary McDonnell’s Captain Sharon Raydor, the biggest difference between it and its predecessor is that more […]
DVD Review: The Closer: The Complete Fifth Season
Available on DVD from Warner Home Video beginning June 29th, 2010 Darn that Kyra Sedgwick, she looks good even wearing yellow crime scene tape! It seems like season five of The Closer had just begun airing on TNT, but it was actually over a year ago with the first episode Products of Discovery premiering on […]
HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: The Final Cylon and Her Creator Speak!
Following the big reveal – Ellen Tigh as the final Cylon – I was privileged to take part in a teleconference with Ronald D. Moore and Ellen Tigh, herself, Kate Vernon.

I can’t give […]

Battlestar Galactica: Escape Velocity – The Day After The Day After
Escape Velocity opens with Chief Tyrol given a poignant eulogy at Cally’s funeral and ends with Gaius Baltar in a [for him] most unusual position. In between, this is one of Galactica’s most intense episodes – even though there are no great Cylon battles or even much action at all.
Battlestar Galactica: Six of One – The Day After
After a rather ho-hum premiere, Battlestar Galactica seems to be moving back in the right direction. Where He That Believeth In Me tended to rehash the season three finale without adding much to the running story – except for the development of the Starbuck-Roslin situation – Six of One is almost chockfull o’ stuff.
Battlestar Galactica: He That Believeth in Me – The Day After
Battlestar Galactica may be the best SF series, start to finish, ever produced for television. Even so, after sleeping on it, I have to say that the final season opener left me cold. [SPOILERS beyond this point!]
