Colony Season 3 Episode 13 Review: What Goes Around

On Colony Season 3 Episode 13, it's wartime, and Will is the only one who can save Seattle and his family from certain death. The enemy of our enemy, otherwise known as the Predator aliens, have begun the war. They fight with some kind of vibration or sound wave, so they seem unstoppable. Will and the other outliers have mad skills, but it doesn't seem that weapons are going to do anything against these guys. Unless Kynes has his bunker filled with some kind of alien weapons, courtesy of the hosts. Maybe he had armor made of the material he was reverse engineering. We can only speculate. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! One thing's for sure, Kynes prepared better than anyone imagined. He placed outlier cells everywhere, so there's no telling how many soldiers in total he has to back Broussard. His bunker is probably lined with the impenetrable material. That would make sense. Come inside, introduce yourselves. And then we can talk about how to raise holy hell. Broussard Permalink: Come inside, introduce yourselves. And then we can talk about how to raise holy hell. Added: July 24, 2018 If all goes to hell, Broussard and his team can hole up in the shelter, and at least some of humanity will survive. They wouldn't do that, though. Outliers are built to fight, not hide. Yes, Snyder convinced Will to donate 150 outliers to the cause in exchange for the host's protection, but did you see how fast Davos went down? Helena mentioned, in the beginning, their facility had two layers of protection. That didn't stop the Predators from waltzing in and taking everyone out with zero effort. So, great, Will was the first to step forward to volunteer, and gave his inspirational speech to rally more outliers to sacrifice, but for what? The hosts did come through with their end of the bargain because they put a shield around Seattle. Maybe they even put two shields, but the Predators are coming regardless. Related: Colony Season 3 Episode 12 Review: Bonzo If they get past Will and the other pod outliers, and the shields, Seattle's only hope are the outliers on the ground. The grey hats will fight too, but they couldn't even fight against Will, so they're average fighters at best. When Will was enclosed in that capsule, I didn't know whether to feel sadness because that's how the series ended or hopeful that he'll be fighting the fight on the front lines. I don't know how to dig myself out of this hole. Will Permalink: I don't know how to dig myself out of this hole. Added: July 23, 2018 Knowing that may have been the last time we ever see Will Bowman, made it difficult watching his pod close. No doubt Will is going to be a leader to the pod outliers, and do everything in his power to keep the aliens away from his family in Seattle. That's the one and the o..

Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 9 Review: The Tree and Stone Were One

The truth finally came out about Nova and Remy on Queen Sugar Season 3 Episode 9, and I was relieved Nova did the right thing and told Charley face to face. But she certainly was pushing her luck. I couldn't believe that Nova and Remy were going out in public, holding hands and sharing sappy smiles where anyone could have noticed and shared it with Charley. Nova knew that if she continued down that road, Charley was going to hear about it sooner rather than later. Expectedly, Charley was hurt, and although she never raised her voice, her quiet, seething anger was almost worse. Charley: When I told you about the mill you let me know how wrong I was. Nova: I know. Charley: You were unrelenting. Nova: I know. Charley: It wasn't the first time but it will be the last. Nova: I didn't ask for this. Charley: You didn't walk away either. Nova: I will. I will if you want me too. Permalink: I will. I will if you want me too. Added: July 25, 2018 But Charley didn't tell her to stop seeing Remy, she simply walked away, most likely because she needed time to process it all. Charley's earlier conversation with Mrs. Boudreaux was a reminder of the importance of sticking by family. She'd never want to see her own behavior mirroring theirs, yet it was difficult to give Nova and Remy her blessing. Related: Get Hallmark Movies Now via Prime Video Channels for Stories with Heart, Captivating Movies & More! When Remy showed up on Charley's doorstep (and was I the only one holding their breath expecting that to be the police looking for Micah?), I was both surprised and a little uneasy. Whatever you're doing with Nova you better be damned sure you know exactly what she wants because if you hurt her, if you make her feel even an ounce of what I'm feeling right now… Nova and I are forever. We're family. As for you, you will always be fleeting. Charley Permalink: Whatever you're doing with Nova you better be damned sure you know exactly what she wants... Added: July 25, 2018 I've always liked Remy, but I'm not sure how I feel about him now. He always judged Charley harshly, as though he somehow thought he was more righteous than she, and that bugged me. I can't say Remy isn't a good man, and he and Nova appear to be a good match, but when Charley told him he better know what Nova wants, I was reminded of how she doesn't want children, and Remy does. That's a conversation these two should have soon before things go any further, but I don't know if they realize that yet. Elsewhere, Charley was summoned to speak with Mrs. Boudreaux, and it was a tense discussion, to say the least. Mrs. Boudreaux: You are what I hear you are? Charley: And what's that? Mrs. Boudreaux: Smart, tough, my kind of girl. Charley: I'm not your girl. Why am I here? Permalink: I'm not your girl. Why am I here? Added: July 25, 2018 You could almost..

The Originals Season 5 Episode 12 Review: The Tale of Two Wolves

If you've been holding out hope for more from Mystic Falls ever since The Vampire Diaries came to a close in 2017, then The Originals Season 5 Episode 12, was the episode you've been waiting for. In what was one of the series' finest hours to date, we were introduced to some new characters while checking in with some old characters who reside in the beautiful town. Creator Julie Plec and Executive Producer Carina Adly Mackenzie penned "The Tale of Two Wolves," and it was a genius hour that kicked off the story of new spin-off Legacies while bringing The Originals to its final chapter. If you watch The Originals online, you know the series has been filled with tragedy from the get-go. The Mikaelsons may have been horrible at one point or another, but they had terrible beginnings. Related: Legacies Trailer: Welcome Back to Mystic Falls! The biggest positive for me was that Hope and Elijah managed to repair their fraught relationship. There was an excellent chance that they were going never to speak again, but the road trip to Mystic Falls put everything in perspective for them. I could not contain my laughter when Hope was opening up about the stories in the school library all painting the Mikaelsons as the villains. Hope's brush with death allowed her to see her mother one last time, and it made for a beautiful bunch of scenes. Hayley may have been killed off terribly, but Mackenzie was not wrong when she said that Hayley still had more story to tell. The meeting between mother and daughter allowed Hope to realize that she doesn't have to wallow in the past. She can move on knowing her mother is happy with her family. Excuse me, I just need one minute with this very lost new janitor. Caroline Permalink: Excuse me, I just need one minute with this very lost new janitor. Added: July 25, 2018 It was a poignant way for Hayley to say farewell for good because all she's been looking for since her days on The Vampire Diaries is a family ... a place to call home. It was a surprise having Nathan Parsons back as Jackson, but he's part of Hayley's happy place. That's not to say there's no room for Elijah. The look of happiness on his face when Hope told him Hayley was still waiting on that dance was perfection, and it explains why he was all too happy to offer himself up for the sacrifice. Fans have suspected Elijah will be dying a hero's death as Stefan did on The Vampire Diaries ever since Hayley died and he sided with the villains. There is no trick here. She is about to experience her first full moon since she triggered her curse. Every witch that we have consulted has said she won't survive the night. This is terminal, Elijah. Marcel Permalink: There is no trick here. She is about to experience her first full moon since she triggered... Added: July 25, 2018 As far as Elijah's concerned, his existence has been nothing but pain, but there was a..

Suits Season 8 Episode 2 Review: Pecking Order

Samantha Wheeler is growing on me. On Suits Season 8 Episode 2, she essentially went up against everyone at the firm, but her goal wasn't to discredit any of them, it was to prove her worth. Through two episodes, she's proven to be resourceful, cunning, and most of all, surprising. The addition of Katherine Heigl was a controversial one for Suits. Most fans worried the show was going to find itself in the cancellation heap because Heigl's two most recent series lasted just one season each before getting kicked to the curb. There's no question -- Heigl has breathed new life into a series that ran in circles for the better part of two years. Related: Suits Season 8 Episode 1 Review: Right-Hand Man After I compared her to Jessica Pearson on my review for Suits Season 8 Episode 1, "Pecking Order" peeled back the layers to show us that all she wants is to be part of a successful firm. I'm not going to defend the way she goes about things because if she kept Harvey in the loop, I doubt they would have been bickering for much of the hour. A standout moment was her meeting with Donna. There was tension from the get-go, and Samantha was not doing herself any favors by trying to get a bigger expense account. It made her look bratty because there was a protocol, and she was not willing to follow it. Turning to Robert to prove she had more pull than Donna was a smart power move ... one that even frightened Donna. Sam: I am on this team now, and I have got its best interests at heart. Donna: Well, you got a funny way of showing it. Permalink: Well, you got a funny way of showing it. Added: July 25, 2018 If you watch Suits online, you know Donna has been the go-to person to sort things out since the show's inception, but even she was out of her depth with Samantha. There's potential for these two women to be good friends, but there's a lack of trust, and each has their own reasons for that. Hell, even Gretchen couldn't find all the information on Samantha. Like I said before, she's resourceful and knows how to make power moves. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! Working with Harvey proved once again that they conduct their work very differently, but while they may not always agree, they have the firm's best interests at heart. The firm seems stuck in a transitional stage as it is, and I would like very much for them to get along and recognize that they are trying to achieve a common goal. Robert assigning Sam to the case to keep tabs on Harvey was a big eye-roll. How do they expect to work together if there's no trust? I'm thankful they managed to come together at the end and let go of their beef, but please, no more of this. Suits has a knack for running around in circles, and this power struggle is not something I wish to watch on a weekly basis. ..

Chris Hardwick Cleared to Return to Work at AMC

Just days after the conclusion of San Diego Comic-Con, where Yvette Nicole Brown moderated panels in Chris Hardwick's absence, AMC has announced they've cleared him to return to work. On June 14, Hardwick's ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, posted an online essay alleging sexual assault and emotional abuse by Hardwick during their time together. As a result, Hardwick immediately lost his position and affiliations at AMC and elsewhere while AMC began a comprehensive investigation into the allegations although he was not named in Dykstra's post. Hardwick has adamantly denied all allegations, although he agreed that his relationship with Dykstra "was not perfect." He also released some intimate text messages and emails he had exchanged with Dykstra in an attempt to give some perspective from his side of the relationship.

With Fear the Walking Dead returning on August 12, Hardwick will not be at the helm, but Brown will be a guest on the show. Brown will be hosting a Walking Dead Season 9 pre-show on August 5 for AMC ahead of the Fear the Walking Dead premiere. "Following a comprehensive assessment by AMC, working with Ivy Kagan Bierman of the firm Loeb & Loeb, who has considerable experience in this area, Chris Hardwick will return to AMC as the host of Talking Dead and Talking With Chris Hardwick," a AMC said in a statement. "We take these matters very seriously and given the information available to us after a very careful review, including interviews with numerous individuals, we believe returning Chris to work is the appropriate step."

The Deuce to Return to HBO in September

HBO is sharing all kinds of news today from the TCAs. Now we're hearing from The Deuce and getting our first word that, yes, James Franco is still a part of the series after being accused of less than savory behavior shortly after he won his Globe Award for his performance in The Disaster Artist. Chronicling the rise of pornography and the multibillion-dollar industry’s transformation of American culture, the critically acclaimed drama series The Deuce, created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, returns for its nine-episode second season Sunday, Sept. 9 (10/9c), exclusively on HBO. Resuming five years after the culmination of the first season, The Deuce returns to the world of 1977, capturing the Times Square area of midtown New York at its most garish and volatile. The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hit Movies! Amid a city that is as culturally dynamic as it is dystopic, the show finds its protagonists living at the apex of the Golden Age of Porn, when the dream of a mainstream X-rated film business is a suddenly a credible reality, and the culture of pornography and its blatant commodification of sex is finding increasing traction among more and more Americans. Disco and punk are in full swing, and police corruption and political tolerance for New York’s midtown demimonde is at its height. And the Mafia, the early backer of pornography at the moment when courts declared for its legality, is now seemingly poised to reap great profits. A comparable – and, in some ways, more professional – porn industry is rising on the West Coast as well. But for now, New York is holding its own in a city flush with movies, music and art, as the drug-fueled party rages around the clock. Related: Game of Thrones: HBO Boss Narrows Down Final Season Premiere Date, Talks Spinoff "This is the moment when it genuinely seemed for the first time that hardcore pornography was going to become mainstreamed into American culture and psyche," says David Simon. "And in a very real sense that would happen to a profound degree, though not in the ways that our protagonists once imagined." Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, both veterans of the HBO series The Wire and Treme, The Deuce is executive produced by Pelecanos, Simon, Nina K. Noble and James Franco. The drama stars James Franco as both Vincent Martino, a successful manager of several mob-backed nightspots, and his twin brother, Frankie Martino, whose own business ventures are more fraught, and Maggie Gyllenhaal as Candy, now a rising director of ambitious porn films. The returning cast also includes Gary Carr (Downton Abbey) as C.C. and Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire) as Larry Brown, both Eighth Avenue pimps coping with the changing realities of the sex trade.

Game of Thrones: HBO Boss Narrows Down Final Season Premiere Date, Talks Spinoff

Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones have been on tenterhooks awaiting word on when the final season of the fantasy epic will debut. Thankfully, HBO boss Casey Bloys confirmed during the network's appearance at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour that the series will definitely debut in the "first half" of 2019. It's better than knowing the show could return towards the end of the year because let's face it, the wait for these final episodes has been difficult. Game of Thrones Season 7 concluded with the wall being brought down by The Night King's new pet dragon, whom he gained after killing him when Daenerys took him into battle. Related: Game of Thrones Spinoff Gets Pilot Order With The Night King and his minions now on the way to some of the series' biggest landmarks, there's no telling what will be on tap. It's crazy, but there are just six episodes left, and there are a lot of storylines that need to be brought full circle. There's a good chance a lot of characters will perish, and the show has always prided itself in offing series regulars. Bloys also opened up about the spinoff from Jane Goldman that recently garnered a pilot order at the network. "We are doing a pilot that Jane Goldman wrote,” he said. Related: Game of Thrones Spinoff: Filming Details Revealed With HBO exploring five different GoT spinoff concepts, “we’d be lucky to get one that we’re very, very excited about, and we did get that," Bloys continued. "We’re just starting the search for a director… we have to cast it. We hope to be shooting sometime in the new year.” The spinoff garnered a pilot order last month, and it will be set a long time before the current narrative explored on Game of Thrones. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hit Movies! Per the official logline, “the series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour." "And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.” Goldman is attached to be the showrunner on the potential series, and will also executive produce alongside George R.R. Martin. There's no telling when the spinoff could air if the network pulls the trigger on a full series commitment, but we will likely get more clarity depending on whether the network likes the pilot.

Camping: Jennifer Garner and David Tennant Comedy Gets Premiere Date!

To celebrate her husband Walt’s 44th birthday, the obsessively organized and aggressively controlling Kathryn gathers together her meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend, and a free-spirited tagalong. And what was supposed to be a delightful, back-to-nature camping trip quickly becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten. Starring Jennifer Garner (Alias) and David Tennant (Jessica Jones, Doctor Who), the comedy series Camping launches its eight-episode season this October exclusively on HBO. Camping is written and executive produced by Lena Dunham (creator and star of HBO’s Girls), Jenni Konner (executive producer of HBO’s Girls) and John Riggi, and is based on the British series of the same name created by Julia Davis and produced by Baby Cow Productions. The show will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms. Camping follows a group of old friends as they arrive at the underwhelming Brown Bear Lake campsite to celebrate a landmark birthday, sparking heightened emotions, latent tensions (sexual and otherwise) and memories they’d rather forget. Other series regulars include Juliette Lewis (Secrets and Lies), Arturo Del Puerto (Fear the Walking Dead), Ione Skye (Arrested Development), Janicza Bravo (Love) and Brett Gelman (Stranger Things). The recurring cast includes Bridget Everett (Inside Amy Schumer). Kathryn McSorley-Jodell (Jennifer Garner) is a controlling LA mom who is far less cheerful than her Lululemons imply. She directs the weekend’s proceedings with an iron grip until she’s faced with a woman who undoes all her best-laid plans. Walt (David Tennant) is an obedient husband and a loving father, the reliable lynchpin of his male social group, but below that reality lurks a subtle but growing discontent about what he's just signed up for. Jandice (Juliette Lewis) is a woman of many talents: a DJ, a Reiki healer, and a certified public accountant. Her life may seem ideal, but the reality is far less. Smack dab in the middle of a midlife crisis, the recently separated Miguel (Arturo Del Puerto) now expresses his instability through a youthful wardrobe and very strange life choices. Carleen (Ione Skye) has spent her life in the shadows as Kathryn’s sister. Timid and terrified, she must rely on her own strange passions, such as crocheting, to get her through the lonely days. Nina-Joy (Janicza Bravo) is the friend you go to for everything: best massage, best jeans, best oatmeal. But her tension with Kathryn over a breach of confidence threatens to topple the weekend. George (Brett Gelman) is loyal, goofy and infinitely game. He’s as obsessed with his best friend, Walt, as he is with his wife, Nina-Joy, and just under the surface of this affable boom operator simmers barely repressed rage that can stop any singalong. Harry (Bridget Everett) is the tough-talking, nature-loving queen of the campsite; her ..

35 Worthy Contenders if Emmy Recognition was Fair!

The best part about award nomination time is the recognition for our favorite shows and actors. The worst part, however, is knowing that so many shows and actors fall through the cracks because the competition is steep. Then there is the matter of shows (and actors) who are seldom considered at all due to their genre or their network. While there is a redundancy in many of the shows and actors lauded each year, there is a sea of talent ignored and shows overlooked. How amazing would it be if the Emmy's recognized supernatural and sci-fi shows as often as they do genre specific dramas? What if the Jane the Virgin's and the Mr. Robot's weren't exceptions to the rule and shows that fall on the USA Network or The CW stood a chance? Can you imagine how many talented actors, directors, writers and more would receive honors if the powers that be took Freeform, OWN, and other networks seriously? Check out a list of worthy contenders who would receive more accolades if award recognition was fair. Don't forget to hit the comments with your thoughts and additions! 1. Queen Sugar Queen Sugar is a masterpiece. There are so many reasons why this show should be raved about and showered with praise, accolades, and what have you. One of the first things that come to mind is the STUNNING cinematography. It's the best on air, and it is breathtaking. On top of that, the cast is out of this world, the writing for this show is exceptional, and it has all female directors for every single episode. It's as diverse behind the camera as it is in front of the camera. This critically-acclaimed series has "Best Drama" all over it, and yet ... nothing. 2. Dawn-Lyen Gardner - Queen Sugar In the ideal world, someone would follow Gardner around throwing Emmy's at her feet. She deserves many of them. There is so much to Charley Bordelon, and Gardner is magnetic while playing her. There is a rich dichotomy to the character, and she captures it oh so very well. As the most seemingly put-together character who masks all of her insecurities, vulnerability, and pain behind a carefully crafted, stoic facade, everything about this character is about nuance, and Gardner is exceptional. Gardner doesn't require a "Best Actress in a Drama" nomination. She has more than earned a win. 3. Tom Ellis - Lucifer Tom Ellis fought right along with the rest of Lucifans when word got out that Lucifer was canceled, and fortunately, it all worked. Ellis' dedication came as no shock because that's the type of dedication he exhibits while playing Lucifer. Ellis' range is unlike anything else; it's unparalleled. Lucifer isn't just one thing. He's soft and hard. He's selfish and selfless, broken, and powerful, and so many other things. I can't envision anyone other than Tom Ellis capturing every nuance and beguiling viewers in the same way. 4. Sarah Michelle Gellar - Buffy The Buffy reboot news has spread by..

Deadwood Movies Gets Greenlight at HBO

Deadwood is headed back to HBO. HBO President Casey Bloys confirmed Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour that a movie sequel to the series will enter production this fall. “We are greenlit on the Deadwood movie,” he said. “We’re looking at an October start date. It has been a logistics nightmare getting all the cast members’ schedule lined up, but we are there, and it is greenlit.” Deadwood originally aired on the premium cable network from 2004-06, lasting three seasons before the ax was swung. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hit Movies! Bloys went on to state that no definite premiere date has been penciled in, but it could hit the air as early as Spring 2019. What's more, Daniel Minahan who directed four episodes of the original series will return to direct the movie. While he never went into specifics about who will return for the feature, he did say there was a "nightmare of logistics" as far as getting the actors back together. Related: Deadwood Revival: Actually Happening? Last year, Kim Dickens and Dayton Callie appeared at San Diego Comic-Con to promote Fear the Walking Dead and confirmed to TV Line that they knew of the project. “They’ve called for our availability,” Dickens revealed, while Callie said: "Mine, too!" It's been a long road to the air for the revival, but we there's a good chance that Dickens will be part of the cast. Her four-year tenure on Fear the Walking Dead came to a halt earlier this year when it was revealed that her character died while trying to save her family. In this revival-crazy world, we can't think of any show better to come back than Deadwood. While a two-hour movie is somewhat finite, there's no telling what it could lead to if the movie is a success. The original series received near universal acclaim from critics. Will the movie be able to give fans the closure they deserve after all these years? Time will tell. What are your thoughts on this news, Deadwood Fanatics? Will you be watching the movie?
