"Robbie Amell answers early Tomorrow People theories and weighs in on what's next"

The CW's The Tomorrow People has barely even launched yet, and already so much buzz and so many theories are flying around the internet. Can Stephen (Robbie Amell) successfully juggle his new powers and brethren with his old friends and family? Will his loved ones be in too much danger because of him? Will they find out the truth about him soon? Is he the rightful leader of the Tomorrow People-- or of Ultra? Does he even approve of his own choices? It's a CW show, so who will spark the love connection? Why can't Tomorrow People kill, and are they just one tweak of DNA away from that being evolved, too? We sat down with Amell to get answers where we could... [MORE]


"Emma Rigby on the Red Queen's Wonderland relationships with Alice & Jafar"

As The Red Queen on ABC's Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, Emma Rigby is fabulously dressed and meticulously controlled, akin to how Lewis Carroll envisioned her in his novel "Through the Looking Glass." She is a woman who knows how to put her best face forward and rule with fury, and at times that may leave the audience wondering just who the real woman underneath all of the pageantry is-- where her vulnerabilities lie and even where her heart lies. Because on shows like this, even the villains have hearts and motivations that usually come from places of love, even if it's love of power, even if it's slightly twisted, but The Red Queen will not be showing her true cards, even to the audience, so soon...

The story of Peter Pan and Captain Hook on which we all grew up had the latter as the clear-cut bad guy who went around tormenting young children. But ABC's Once Upon A Time has introduced a very different take-- one that not only introduced Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) as an almost impossibly charming (no pun intended) and more sensitive than we might imagined man but also as a man that though out for revenge was so for love and a sense of family that many might not have thought possible for such a traditionally mustache-twirly character. Hook even managed to set aside some of his personal quest to help Emma (Jennifer Morrison) attempt to rescue her son from Neverland-- a place that Hook knows better than almost anyone and therefore knows to fear. How will Hook continue to grow and evolve based on his decision to put aside his own mission and help someone else, let alone to confront some demons in Neverland? LA TV Insider Examiner sat down with O'Donoghue on set to find out! ... [MORE]


"ABC orders full first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."


Comic book and Joss Whedon fans alike have reason to rejoice this morning as ABC has ordered the back nine (therefore a full season) of their freshman superhero drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D... [MORE]





"Fall 2013 TV Preview: The CW's Reign"

It doesn't matter how beautiful Reign is shot or how flawlessly performed, despite actors adopting new accents let alone cultural status to embody their respective characters, or even how much innate relatability there may be to the themes of love and power and family; it is historical fiction on The CW and that takes a while to get used to. Reign is out to tell the story of Mary, Queen of Scots-- well, it is out to tell a story of a Mary, Queen of Scots, but if we find that a few months from now middle school children are using this show as a source for their term papers we are going to be immensely sad...
