Shannen Doherty Defends Charmed Reboot: Give the Show a Chance!

While many fans of the original Charmed are still up in arms about the fact that the show has been rebooted just 12 years after it went off the air, some are welcoming this new iteration with open arms. One of the original stars has spoken up to support The CW's new version which debuted earlier this month. “I have seen a lot of people be very mean and very negative and cruel to the new show and the new cast,” Shannen Doherty said at Comic-Con Paris after hearing a negative reaction from the crowd about the new series. “I want to remind everybody that these are three girls who just want to act. They got a huge opportunity, and I would implore everybody to be a little bit kinder.” Related: Charmed Reboot: Charmed or Jinxed? The actress went on to say that the reboot had a “positive, good influence,” adding that “this is a show about three strong women again… I know that it may not be your Charmed, but you should all really pat yourselves on the back and congratulate yourselves because you’re the most loyal, amazing fans in the world." "And because of you, you made it a show that a younger generation wants to see.” She continued: “You have to think about what Charmed did for you when it was on and think about what that’s going to do for a new generation. Embrace it, you guys. It’s doing well, ratings-wise, and it’s employing over 200 people.” Charmed (2018) launched on Sunday, October 14 and is currently averaging a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49. However, it has dropped in the ratings every episode since its premiere, so it remains to be seen whether it will level off at a level the network is happy with. Related: Holly Marie Combs Blasts Charmed Reboot The show's existence has stirred up controversy ever since it was announced, but Doherty has said nothing but positive things since learning about it, admitting that she was "intrigued by the idea that a new generation might be comforted." Doherty's former co-star, Holly Marie Combs did not take too kindly to the way the reboot was being made without any input from the original stars. She hit up Twitter to say that Charmed “belongs to the four of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. You will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.” She subsequently took issue with the way the show as marketed because of the implication that the original series was not a "feminist" series. The OG series is one of few shows that is still spoken about over a decade after it went off the air. It's clear the fans loved it as much as they did back in the day, so it makes sense that some would be defensive over a reboot. What are your thoughts on this? Are you watching the new Charmed?

Veronica Mars: Ryan Hansen Returns for Hulu Revival!

Hulu's Veronica Mars revival will not be light on familiar faces. Ryan Hansen has been added to the cast of the eight-part limited series, according to The Wrap. Hansen played the lovable Dick Casablancas on all three seasons of the UPN/CW drama as well as the movie sequel. It's unclear how many episodes he will be back for at this stage, but we're just glad to know that Hansen will be returning to his role. Could you imagine an episode of the series that isn't filled with Dick's cosmic wit? We think it's fair to say the show would not be the same without him. Related: Veronica Mars Picked Up By Hulu! Hansen joins Kristen Bell (Veronica) Jason Dohring (Logan), Francis Capra (Weevil), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), David Starzyk (Richard) and Enrico Colantoni (Keith), who were previously revealed to be part of the new iteration. Veronica Mars originally debuted back in 2004 on UPN and aired there for two seasons before moving over to The CW for its final season. The series was never a heavy hitter in the ratings, and that's why The CW attempted to revamp it by ditching the season-long arc in favor of plots that spanned a handful of episodes. It didn't help the ratings, and the series was placed on hiatus before being canceled by the network in 2007. But fans attempted to revive it because it was one of the best teen dramas around. In 2014, series creator Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to have a movie sequel of the series produced. The campaign was a roaring success, and the movie launched to a solid response from fans, and while there were plans for future movies, no more materialized. Despite Bell and Thomas maintaining that they would love to continue the story, fans have waited several years for an update. Related: Veronica Mars Revival: Who's Coming Back? Thankfully the update came last month in the form a formal order for the limited series, but what's this new series about? "Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry," reads the official logline. "After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach." It has all the makings of a gripping mystery for our favorite characters to solve, right? What are your thoughts on this latest casting news? Hit the comments below!

Homecoming Review: Julia Roberts is Radiant in Amazon’s New Thriller

Movie star Julia Roberts finally finds her way to the small screen with a buzzy series from Sam Esmail and an exciting role the likes of which Roberts hasn't had the opportunity to flex her muscles in a long time. Based on the fictional podcast of the same name and adapted for the screen by creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, Homecoming shuffles viewers between two time periods in the life of Heidi Bergman, a caseworker at a center helping assimilate recently returning veterans back into civilian life. In 2018, Heidi is a successful, stable, and caring counselor, if a bit harried and overworked. Jump four years into the future, and she's waitressing at a waterside seafood restaurant, living with her mother, and sugarcoating the past. What happened to cause such a shift? Homecoming is a mystery that relies heavily on the chemistry of the characters, and Roberts works beautifully with her co-stars. Stephan James (Selma, Shots Fired) is Walter Cruz, central to the unfolding drama surrounding Heidi. A recent recruit to the center, he's so well-adjusted after his return from active military duty that it's the first clue that there's more than just job anxiety and a hovering boss (Bobby Cannavale as Colin) eating away at Heidi. Related: Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 Premiere Date Revealed — Watch Extended Trailer Heidi isn't the character we're used to Roberts playing. She's not sporting her signature grin or breaking into a loud laugh when someone she's caught off-guard. Everything about Heidi is slightly reserved and very professional as if she has the weight of the world on her shoulders. That's because Colin is a helicopter boss who is never present. Heidi runs the facility and must be available at a moment's notice for everything. We learn the ins and outs of the Homecoming program through Heidi's interactions with Walter, a soldier she gets to know well because he's so affable upon his return. They change each other, and with that change, we're swiftly sent reeling into the future to see how Heidi came out on the other side. Roberts and James make a formidable on-screen pair, and their scenes together run the gamut from electrifying to anguished without skipping a beat. Related: Blake Lively Plots TV Return: Get All the Details! The shock is that Heidi remembers relatively nothing of her time at the facility, and the more that is revealed, the more perplexing it becomes. Esmail ensures there is no issue with timeline detection not only by way of the characters look and act (and the division can be quite stark), but by a clever shift in the framing of the scenes from a wide shot to a more standard definition frame. It's not only a welcome format for the obvious reasons, but a fun way to set off the difference. If you're used to watching Esmail's work on Mr. Robot, the camera shots might not be anything new to you, but the..

A Million Little Things Round Table: Can Gary Respect Maggie’s Decision and Stand By Her?

Rome is taking the necessary steps toward getting himself the help that he needs. On A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 5, Rome sat down with Dr. Heller, spoke to his parents, and he chose to take anti-depressants. He's well on his way to helping himself. Meanwhile, Gary came around to accepting Maggie's devastating decision to forego treatment. Eddie and Katherine called it quits, and Delilah found out some shocking news. Join TV Fanatics Christine Orlando, Rachelle Lewis, and Jack Ori as they discuss an emotional hour. Was there any part of you that hoped Eddie and Katherine could work things out after his grand gesture with the school play? Christine: Winning Katherine back with one, big, grand gesture would be far too easy and unrealistic, not to mention that she deserves much more from Eddie. That said, I was almost rooting for it to work, not for Eddie’s sake, but for Theo’s. Instead of working on his marriage, Eddie made selfish choices that will impact Theo's life forever. Rachelle: I never thought Eddie and Katherine would work things out. There has been too much damage for the years. What I think the grand gesture showed was that, despite their differences, they can work together to co-parent Theo. Eddie knew that not only was it important for Katherine to not miss the play, but it was also important to Theo. Jack: It wouldn't have been realistic if everything was perfect after the one grand gesture, but I was hoping for it to be a step towards reconciliation. I loved Katherine questioning why she didn't feel she deserved more, but I also thought that maybe with marriage counseling (and individual counseling for both of them) they could eventually fully resolve the problems in their marriage. Watch A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 5 Online Will Gary be able to stand by Maggie even though he doesn't understand her decision? Do you think a part of Maggie is reconsidering things because of Gary? Christine: I hope she’s reconsidering because she’s so young, and I want her to have a chance, but cancer treatments can completely take over your life. If she really feels like she doesn’t have much of a chance, I can understand her making the most of the time she has left. I think Gary is far stronger than he believes, and he can be there for Maggie through this, no matter what she decides…but it’s going to hurt like hell if she doesn’t make it. Rachelle: I don’t think Gary will be able to stand by Maggie if she doesn’t get treatment. He doesn’t understand her decision, he doesn’t agree with it, and he cares too much about losing her. I think for a little while, he can put his own feelings aside, but in the end, he won’t be able to stand by and watch her die.
