Close to the Enemy: Jim Sturgess Talks "Refreshing" but Cryptic Post-War Thriller

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

The characters are so intricately woven that you really just want to keep with them and sort of discover what is going to happen next, not because you're being tricked into it or sort of shocked into it. Close to the Enemy is currently airing Mondays on Acorn TV. Editor's Note:



The Voice: Who's Most Likely to Make the Final Four?

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

This guy. It's not just that his voice has wide range and dexterity, he sounds like he has the entirety of the roots of music -- gospel, blues, rock, soul and Southern country -- in his voice. He's the perhaps the most versatile of the entire bunch and a bona fide star.

Westworld: 5 Questions That Have Us Excited for Season 2

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Read on at your own risk, or say "doesn't look like anything to me" and hit the back button on your browser. The violent delights of Westworld's first season came to violent ends, just as promised, in the fantastic, confusing and rewarding Season 1 finale. Westworld maker Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) apparently met his maker in the final moments of the episode when Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) shot him in the back of the head. Turns out Ford was always pro-host (well, moreso than we initially thought given his disagreements with Arnold) and had planned for his hosts to ascend intellectually and rise up to claim the world that rightfully belonged to them, partially by shooting up a corporate party. The scene that had me launching off my sofa and jumping with excitement was the internal peek at a new theme park, whose logo simply read "SW" and featured several ancient Japanese warriors. Westworld -- existed never jibed with the scope and ambition of the series. What they consist of is yet another question (sensing a pattern here?), but Nolan did posit the notion of whether Westworld would be a great destination for women and hinted that other parks might be more geared toward fantasies that go beyond "shooting or f*cking" robots. Dolores' original dad Peter Abernathy (Louis Hertham) was uploaded with 35 years of code by Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) and told to hoof it out of the park with an assist by narrative director Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman), who was to write a believable backstory to allow Abernathy to slip out unnoticed. Sure the idea of corporate espionage is intriguing, but it's also not part of the intellectual themes Westworld wants to explore. Assuming Abernathy did make it out of the park alive (was his explosive vertebrae removed?), his potential use for storytelling is expansive. [...] in the final moments, Maeve decided to abandon her plan to leave the park and returned to find her daughter



Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Validates Everyone Who Ever Loved Jess Mariano

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

In addition to the affair with Logan, she was a failing freelance journalist who took a handout from Mitchum Huntzberger and who also thought she was too good for a HelloGiggles-like website. It's true Rory isn't wildly changed and there's evidence that points to her frequently undermining the perfect facade we all bought into during the show's original run -- which could be spun as Jess always loving Rory, flaws and all -- but between the selfishness, the cheating on her understanding boyfriend with an engaged man who never gave her any indication he wanted more, and an obnoxious sense of entitlement, Rory was obviously unlikeable in the revival in a way that she wasn't in the original series. [...] it's not going too far to suggest he, a well-adjusted man capable of doling out sound advice and who is finally comfortable with who he is, should maybe reconsider his feelings and get as far away from Rory and Stars Hollow as possible for fear of being dragged down with her. Jess is a grown man capable of making his own decisions -- and making good decisions -- but because of the open-ended nature of "Fall", we may never know what happens next between them. [...] one thing is certain: [...] Rory figures out her issues and gets herself fully on track, Jess will remain much, much too good for her.

The Walking Dead: Who Has the Best Plan to Kill Negan?

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

The Walking Dead pulled off its best episode of the season on Sunday, and if there's one thing Rick's group can all agree on, it's that Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) -- bless his disgusting potty mouth and revolting swagger -- is a pretty lousy person and everyone would be better off if he was dead. Not only did he kill Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), force Alexandria into servitude, flaunt misogyny and kidnap Daryl (Norman Reedus), but he's kind of an overall jerk in general. Since Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has taken a stance of kowtowing to Negan and doing nothing, others have concocted their own ingenious plans to take out Negan -- most of which revolve around the central idea of walk into the Sanctuary and kill Negan. Sing Me a Song saw many of these characters show off their murderous intent as they pressed forward to rid the world of Negan once and for all, setting up a possible Who Killed Mr. Burns? scenario with multiple suspects all individually looking to kill Negan on their own. Rosita (Christian Serratos) -- looking to avenge Abraham's death -- was smart enough to go hunt down a gun when Rick handed all the ones they had over to Negan like a good boy. Since guns are good at killing people, this is a pretty good idea! To get around this, she had Eugene make her a single bullet, as he showed an aptitude for crafting munitions previously. On a fifth-grade level, symbolically this makes sense as it hammers home the idea that you literally only get one shot at Negan, so make it count. In a front-seat scuffle, Michonne slammed the poor woman's face into the steering wheel and took her gun, which accomplished two things: Carl, who is still upset that Negan used permanent marker on his arm, stowed away in a Savior supply truck and planned to... Find a poisonous snake, put it in your empty eye socket, and when Negan wants to have another look at that gross hole in your face, the snake will



Will Nashville Address Tennessee's Anti-LGBT Law?

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

When the future of Nashvillewas still up in the air earlier this year, members of the show's cast, including leading lady Connie Britton, said publicly that they would have a difficult time continuing to work in Tennessee given the recent passage of a law in the state that discriminates against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. [...] the show was subsequently picked up by CMT in partnership with Hulu, and since the announcement that Nashville would live to see another season after all, the cast members have remained mum about the legislation, which allows counselors and therapists to refuse service to clients/patients whose lifestyles do not align with the providers' "principles." [...] though the show features a prominent same-sex relationship storyline in the form of Will (Chris Carmack, who also spoke out against the legislation) and Kevin (Kyle Dean Massey), it sounds like there are no plans for real-life politics to factor into the plot, in conversations or otherwise. Details on Richards' character are being kept mostly under wraps; however, all signs point to her being heavily involved with Juliette Barnes' (Hayden Panettiere) storyline as she recovers from the plane crash at the end of Season 4.



Legion: FX's Marvel Series Gets Premiere Date, New Trailer

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

On Monday, FX announced a premiere date for X-Men-adjacent superhero drama Legion, and released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated series. The series, which comes from Fargo mastermind Noah Hawley and Marvel TV, tells the story of David Haller (Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens), who was diagnosed as schizophrenic but is actually a mutant with many different very real identities inside of him -- hence the Biblical reference of the title.

Fear the Walking Dead Exclusive: Alycia Debnam-Carey Shares an Intimate Moment in This Deleted Scene

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead's stealthily superior spin-off, comes out on DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday, Dec. 13, and TVGuide.com has your first look at a deleted scene included on the release. In this clip from "Sicut Cervus," Episode 6 of Season 2, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) finds a quiet moment with her mother Madison (Kim Dickens) amidst all the chaos. "Sicut Cervus" is the episode in which the Clark/Manawa family arrives at Celia's (Marlene Forté) compound in Mexico, which Strand (Colman Domingo) promises will be a safe place (and allow him to reunite with his boyfriend Thomas [Dougray Scott]). The dangerous rescue involved Madison trading a zombified pirate hostage -- whom Chris had killed in cold blood, another cause for concern -- in exchange for Travis (Cliff Curtis), and Alicia escaping with her family in the chaos when the walker attacked the pirates.



The 12 Grossest TV Moments of 2016

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

From The Walking Dead to Westworld, Westeros to Roanoke, one thing remained constant in the ever-changing entertainment landscape: television's ability to turn our stomachs time and time again. Viewers who tuned into the pilot episode of AMC's Preacher got a bloody introduction to Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), who exposes himself as a vampire by killing an airplane pilot as well as the passengers on board, and drinking the pilot's blood. Just to be on the safe side, he also makes himself a to-go container of the pilot's blood as well before jumping out of the plane before it crashes. Evil Dead episode "The Morgue," Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) may face his most preposterous dilemma yet, when -- there's no elegant way to say it -- he gets his head shoved, quite graphically, through a corpse's anus. The brutally violent episode "Seven Minutes in Heaven" proves (as if there was any doubt) that The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) means business, as he takes out countless fellow inmates, armed with only a shank and his bare hands -- which he uses to pry out one victim's eyes. [...] in the series premiere of Outcast, Cinemax's new show from Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, main character Kyle Barnes learns that the most effective way to perform an exorcism is to punch a possessed person in the face repeatedly -- even if said person is a 10-year-old child. In the Season 4 premiere of Banshee, a member of the Red Bones gang gets a painful (and eventually fatal) lesson about working outside of his own territory. [...] Calvin Bunker crushes the man's head inside a vice before Burton eventually finishes him off with a baseball bat, painting the walls with bits of his brain. [...] the moment that's still stuck in our brains is from the Season 2 finale, when a zombie goes on a violent rampage and bites off a man's nose and then a woman's finger. After discovering that her husband Matt is having an affair with the Wood Witch, She

The Walking Dead: Will Eugene and Rosita Get Together?

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

In "Sing Me A Song," Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, Rosita (Christian Serratos) bullied Eugene (Josh McDermitt) into making a bullet for her so she can kill Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and avenge the death of Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) -- who saved their lives on more than one occasion. Rosita's revenge plot puts together two characters with a shared history and a shared grief. [...] though it might seem a little unlikely right now, after Rosita told Eugene he's a coward who's only alive because people feel sorry for him, putting them together could lead to some consolation in the romantic sense between the two characters. [...] Rosita and Eugene end up together in the comic books. Eugene still has cuts on his face, even though it seems like its been a while since the premiere. Do you know how soon after Abraham and Glenn's deaths this episode takes place? The cool thing that the show does is they give you little clues and markers as to when things are happening. If I could just connect some dots for you -- so basically in episode 4 when Negan's crew comes to Alexandria for the first time and takes everything, including the mattresses, then Michonne (Danai Gurira) rolls up on them at the end of the episode and the mattresses are burning on the side of the road. The show plants little clues like that, which is neat. Interesting you say that, because this episode sort of felt like the beginning of the Eugene/Rosita relationship. [...] any time we get to work together, there's a love there that I have for the other actor, and I hope that she loves me as well [laughs]. Eugene, while he's not necessarily trying to stop her, he's just, as he says, trying to get her to slow her roll because he cares for her, he cares for the other people in the community, he knows that it may not be her or him, but someone else could get hurt by her actions. [...] her calling him weak came at kind of an interesting time, b



Luke Cage Is Getting a Second Season from Marvel and Netflix

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

- Luke Cage (@LukeCage) December 4, 2016 What's most interesting to fans about the teaser is that the finale left Pop's Barber Shop destroyed (again), with the cast wondering what they could do with the location. Whatever happens, most likely we won't find out what'll happen with Cage and company until after the launch of the superhero mash-up Marvel's The Defenders, which teams Cage with fellow NYC based heroes Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Iron Fist (Finn Jones), and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), as well as basically every other character who has ever appeared in a Marvel/Netflix series.



The Walking Dead: Welcome to The Negan Show

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Because of this, it was a relentlessly grim hour, heavy on psychological and physical torture, and set up a Negan/Rick (Andrew Lincoln) standoff for the midseason finale when Rick comes home to Alexandria and finds Uncle Negan babysitting his kids. "Sing Me A Song" is also the first episode of Season 7 so far that hasn't opened with a character waking up, which indicates that everybody finally understands how things are now, and will start preparing for whatever comes next. After an extraneous scene (this episode really didn't have to be an hour and two minutes long without commercials) where the two Saviors driving the truck on which Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Jesus (Tom Payne) are stowed away talk about Fat Joey (Joshua Hoover) while one of them eats a cucumber, we finally get to the main plot of "Sing Me A Song": Carl's experience in the Sanctuary. Carl lies and says he wants Jesus to demonstrate how to jump out first, but then he stays in the truck. The truck arrives and Carl opens fire with a machine gun, killing a Savior. No one else needs to die, Carl says in a tone much too soft for the situation at hand Chandler Riggs' performance in this episode is... "Did you pick that gun cuz it looks cool?" he teases. Negan takes Carl inside and shows off his power by showing how people kneel in his presence and how grateful they are to be blessed by him with fresh vegetables. The walker has a crossbow, and when Spencer gets them down, he finds a note written in Latin that leads him to the hunter's survival stash of canned food, medical supplies, water purifiers, flares, etc. "Did I ever hit one of you?" he says, like that excuses the psychological torment he inflicts on poor Amber a moment later. Negan's like a pickup artist -- by telling Carl how smart he is, then intimidating him into taking the bandage off his eye and acting over-the-top grossed out by the wound while Carl cries. [...] it's pretty unnerving



Once upon a Time: The Person Under the Hood Revealed -- and a Shocking Return!

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

The winter finale of Once Upon a Time managed to uplift hearts and break them in the final moments with two major reveals. Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) made his triumphant return, and as promised he wasn't just a vision coming to give Regina (Lana Parrilla) closure. Regina was able to convince Emma that her real life awaited her and there were people that needed her to defeat the real Evil Queen -- but just as the two were ready to take a magic bean back to Storybrooke, the alternate reality Robin Hood appeared and Regina was unable to leave him behind. Yes, that means that both Regina and Emma are stuck in an alternate reality Enchanted Forest, but if they can find another portal there's a chance that Robin Hood can follow them back to Storybrooke. Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) discovered that Rumple's mother, the Black Fairy, had kidnapped their son; and in the second half of the season fans will find out how Gideon has grown up to be someone that wants the Savior dead.

Westworld: 10 Burning Questions the Finale Must Answer

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 06:00:00 UT

Since the penultimate episode of HBO's Westworld "The Well-Tempered Clavier" blew our freaking minds, we've spent the last week puzzling over all the questions raised by the most action-packed meditation on existential philosophy ever aired on television (sorry, Golden Girls). Here's the ten most pressing questions Westworld needs to answer before the inevitable robot uprising. [...] in the series, when a host gets killed in action, they get fixed at the lab and then their loop is restarted. [...] this is the big mystery the season has been working up to, and our most obvious theory was sort of exploded last week: we thought it would be the path to Arnold, but clearly the church is the portal to Arnold surrogate Bernard. Or a path to a final piece of programming that can help the hosts retain their memories ? Remember when Ford's little boy bot's face opened up like a folded paper cootie catcher? Can all the hosts do that, or just the older models? Because that was pretty sick. The blonde woman who captured Ed Harris and Teddy (James Marsden) in the penultimate episode seems pretty "woke" about the park, in that she recalls being killed by Teddy. Perhaps no character represents the audience's struggle with the humanity of the hosts better than William (Jimmi Simpson), who is on a Bachelor Party weekend with his future brother-in-law (and boss, awkward) but has now gone fully off the rails trying to save the sentient Dolores.



The Glee Cast Had a Beautiful Reunion: See the Pic

Glee ended its six acclaimed seasons in 2015, and since then Lea Michele has gone on to star in Ryan Murphy's dark comedy Scream Queens.
