From LA Examiner: Robert Sean Leonard Talks 'Falling Skies'; 'The LA Complex' DVD Details; 'Devious Maids' and 'Under The Dome' Advance Reviews...


"Robert Sean Leonard dissects his Falling Skies recluse"

Take a good hard look at Roger Kadar, the reclusive and distrusting guy who keeps Charleston's lights on, on TNT's Falling Skies; that's a star turn if we ever saw one for the usually clean-cut, and just plain clean!, Robert Sean Leonard. Leonard joined the cast of Falling Skies for this third season as an all-important new ally to Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and the former 2nd Mass, but he's not the kind of character who takes too kindly to strangers, or anyone really, getting in his space...

"Summer 2013 TV Preview: Lifetime's Devious Maids"

Lifetime's Devious Maids, the new mysterious melodrama about Beverly Hills maids from Marc Cherry, starts with a kick, but instead of zipping right along, it begins to meander, lingering and eavesdropping on each individual home. It's a great way to introduce all of the various "maids" and the stereotypical rich people for which they work, but it slows the story down considerably and even feels like it is dragging in some spots. In that respect, Devious Maids feels like a throwback to the months-long story lines of soap operas from yesteryear.

"Summer 2013 TV Preview: CBS' Under The Dome"

What would you do if you suddenly and inexplicably found yourself completely cut off from the outside world? That is the main question posed in CBS' summer series, Under The Dome, adapted from Stephen King's novel of the same name, and it is the most relevant question one can ask today. With our increasingly reliance on technology and social media sites, we are in almost constant conversation with friends, family, and strangers-- about everything from politics and television to looking at hundreds of food and pet photos. We would be lost without it all. But Under The Dome doesn't shut the power of Chester's Mill off ala Revolution. Instead, an electrified dome is dropped over the town, trapping the residents as if in a giant snow globe. They can see those on the other side, but they cannot hear them. And radio signals are not permeating the barrier, either, so it should only be a matter of time before other means of communication shut down-- even if by choice or force from those who rise to power from within. Under The Dome certainly sets up the fear of the unknown. Like with every King project, there are already hints and elements of something slightly supernatural involved, but the scariest thing is not where this dome came from or why but instead how it will warp the seemingly everyday...
