From LA Examiner: Amy Harris On The 'The Carrie Diaries' Period; Max Lloyd-Jones 'Switched at Birth' Interview; Kevin Williamson Breaks Down 'The Following'; 'Dallas' Season Premiere Advance Review...

"Amy Harris on just how far The Carrie Diaries will dive into the "dark" '80s"

When we personally think of New York City in the 1980s, we think of Jonathan Larson's version. Maybe we're just jaded, but that kind of Bohemian, gritty, hard-knock-life style fits the image we have in our heads of Manhattan before Times Square was Disney-fied. The CW's The Carrie Diaries is out to showcase that time and place through the eyes of a teenage girl (AnnaSophia Robb's Carrie Bradshaw) stepping foot in the city for the first time, though. A combination of the insane pops of neon color indicative of that decade and the fact that the story is being seen through the eyes of a newly enamored young woman has made the show (so far) more of a celebration than a cautionary tale.

Now with The Following, he is diving into the psyches of two of these such people: a seductive serial killer and the haunted former FBI agent who captured him... [MORE]

Though we fully expected the Dallas season two premiere to be bittersweet, following the news of Larry Hagman’s passing a few months ago, the result is actually much more depressing than celebratory. Though J.R. Ewing (Hagman) may not move around as quickly or steadily as he used to, everything about his character in this reboot was on point with the charismatic man we loved to hate from the original series. Realizing just how heads and tails above everyone else on TNT’s version he actually is—well, was—means without him mid-season, we fear there may not be a whole lot left to keep us interested at all...
