Its been a whirlwind freshman year for the Scarlett Speedster, allies and nemeses, challenges galore! We saw Barry Allen go from a mild-mannered, kind, young lad(with a tragic past) and ace forensic scientist for the Coast City PD becoming a great crusader for justice and peace since his amazing transformation from the STAR Labs particular accelerator catastrophe. All the while with great allies like genius tech Cisco Ramon and gifted medical science and biologist, Caitlin Snow, and until very lately, the mysterious head of STAR Labs, Dr. Harrison Wells, revealed to be the Eobard Thawne, the dreaded nemesis from the future known as the Reverse Flash.

 

Flash main cast

Barry Allen, Iris West, Caitlin Snow, Eddie Thawne, Cisco Ramon, Harrison Wells (Eobard Thawne), and Joe West (L-R)

 

More on the home front for Barry, we saw a very concerned guardian and father figure, Lt detective Joe West, and his daughter Iris, watch with concern as while Barry came out of his coma, slowly saw strange changes in him. Joe immediately was revealed that Barry had developed tremendous powers of speed and while at first, was afraid for his safety, accepted his powers and purpose was needed to battle the dark forces that were to rise. Iris, being another concern altogether, as both Joe and Barry struggled to keep the powers a secret from her for her safety and her and Barry struggling with the future revealed affections for each other which will turn her away from her current beloved, CC PD detective, and Joe West‘s partner, Eddie Thawne, who is also revealed to be an “ancestor” of Eobard.

 

Flash Villains

Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, and the menacing telepath Gorilla, Grodd (L-R)

 

Amidst all the dangerous confrontations with various psychotic meta-humans changed by the particle blast like Barry, it only made the cop work more dangerous than before. Skillful super-villains like Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, and the menacing telepath Gorilla, Grodd (under Reverse Flash‘s control at first), made things even more challenging.

But what has fueled Barry‘s tenacity, determination, and fight, was to bring down Wells/Reverse Flash, and hold him accountable for the very crime Barry has been looking to solve and has been keeping his father, Henry Allen, wrongfully imprisoned for it, the murder of his mother, Nora Allen.

 

Barrysparents

Barry Father, Henry Allen(L), and Mother, Nora Allen (R)

 

Tuesday night, from what it appears for the season finale, is that Barry will again, take the big speed warp back in time in his battle with Wells/Thawne, likely save his mother, unburdening his father of the murder conviction. But what other consequences may take place here?  We can only imagine.

 

 

It will all to come to glorious victory or something worse, prepare to get fired up then come to a SCREECHING HALT, Flash fans, this is going to be thrilling.  Catch THE FLASH Season One Finale t its regular time,  Tuesday, May 19, 8/7c on the CW..

Yes, it has been a long and difficult struggle for Dean in getting the dread first demon tattoo of affliction, the Mark of Cain removed from himself for good… Since easily having been suppressed of his demon side by Sam’s effective demon purging ritual, Dean has had to learn composure and restraint in his very heart in order not to revert back.  They both searched high and low for cures, nothing availed.  Then, an apparent opportunity seemed logical: Cain is still out there, and Dean made a promise to kill him with the first Blade once Abaddon was destroyed.  When Cain returned onto the Winchester’s, Cas’s, and Crowley’s radar, he was out to kill again.  It seemed obvious, KILL CAIN…and the Mark goes.  After an epic confrontation with Cain, Dean prevailed and drove the First Blade into his blackened heart.  But the Mark remained…  Darker visions and possibilities for the cure are afoot as a small number of hints, teases, and possible red herrings are dropped by various characters through this last leg of season 10.  Let’s take a look at what three of them are or might be.\

 

BotD

1.  THAT DAMN BOOK OF THE DAMNED
Introduced recently in episode 18 of this season, this cursed reference to ridding all known forms of curses and damnations became the next big link in a possible cure for the Mark on Dean. After a valiant retrieval by beloved friend and now fellow hunter Charlie Bradbury, the Winchesters tangled with members of the notorious Stein clan, rumored to keep relics such as these as heirlooms for their own use. With the quick elimination of all necessary Stein clan members present, Dean had supposedly convinced Sam to burn the book, it was revealed later that Sam had pulled a bait and switch on the Stein clansmen that the book had indeed been burned (much to Dean’s relief and Charlie’s acceptance despite the effort she made to find it). Sam had kept it safely under wraps and has since dirt bargained with Rowena for in exchange of taking care of ridding a magical force, that he would get in return from her, a way to get the book interpreted for a spell to remove the Mark of Cain on Dean once and for all.  The book may hold a cure but reveal something worse to that end as well.  Sam at this point does not care, and has since iron-chained the conniving magical mistress to keep her from breaking their deal committing to translating and researching the cure in the book.

 

 

 

2)  BROTHER TO BROTHER, DOOMED TO REPEAT
As it has been hinted even as far in as season 5, the Brothers Winchester were prophesied in Heaven as a BIG deal, especially in the foretelling of what will come to pass in the impending Apocalypse, as the sacred law uttered by Gabriel earlier that time, “as above, so shall below”.  Their supposed legendary biblical standoff as brother against brother (with destined older brother Dean(then now replaced by half-brother Adam) possessed by the Archangel Michael and the younger Sam, possessed by Lucifer, as originally played in the Bible where Michael was ordered to take down Lucifer in battle before his original banishment from Heaven) was to take place.  Their confrontation and ensuing battle was forewarned to begin a cataclysm that would destroy half the world and bring back humanity to the Dark Ages.

Having long past evaded that confrontation and stopped the Apocalypse, the brothers now face a similar impasse, one not very much unlike the parallel they dealt with then.  With Dean having been accepted as worthy carrying the power of the Mark of Cain by Cain, to wield the First Blade and take down Abaddon, he was later to be warned that he unwittingly put himself on a path that carried the same star-crossed fate as Cain when he killed his younger brother Abel.  Cain warned Dean once again, that the Mark carries an ugly burden on Dean where he may find himself killing Sam in the process as a consequence of the Mark(And to add here, their bloodline was proclaimed to be lead back to the time of Cain and Abel as revealed by Michael in Season 5, which makes the issue hard to ignore) Dean aptly refutes the idea he will give into the urge to kill his own brother with the Mark’s influence, even it that gives release from the Mark itself.  But with some time left in the season for a few more episodes, who knows what may change?

 

 

3) THE “BACK FROM THE PIT” FACE-DOWN!
Relating to notes on Theory #2.  One thing that is particular is how far things have come across since Dean and Sam successfully rid Lucifer and dropped him back in the Pit, though unfortunately, along with their half-brother Adam possessed by Michael.  Now with Metatron free and on the loose once more, and in possession of the Demon Tablet, not to mention his earlier warning and reminder note to Sam and Castiel that the Mark was made by God-level ancient magic used by Lucifer onto Cain, presents some serious and foreboding events to contemplate now. Is there a possibility that Metatron may use these elements to create greater chaos by re-opening the Pit, and end with having Dean, Sam, Castiel, and yes, even Crowley, once again, facing off with Lucifer and alongside that, Adam, possessed by a very angry Michael?  And will this face-off be the only means by which Dean is getting the Mark removed right from the source, so to say?  Whatever Metatron has planned with the tablet, you can be sure, it is of no benefit and all about danger for Heaven, the Winchesters, Castiel, Charlie, Crowley, and the world at large.

 

      The famous season 5 pitfall sacrifice of Sam and the closing of the Pit.

index

Sam shoots/wounds Metatron after Cas’ removes his “Grace”, a move to cough up a detailing a cure for Dean.

 

There you have it, three enduring, intriguing theories of how may all end for Dean and his time with the dreaded Mark of Cain.  Yes, these are all are not complete genuine predictions, just selected ideas perceived by all types of clues, actions, turns in the story,  and dropped hinting in the dialogues of the characters.  But they definitely are the more pertinent points of where writer/show-runner/executive producer Jeremy Carver and executive producer Robert Singer might be taking the story direction to.  We can only hope whatever they have planned, it will end with a EPIC season finale shocker the likes of Seasons 8 and 9!

Darker revelations are afoot and more conflict begins anew for three of WB/DC Comic‘s most epic TV franchises in their final few episodes for their season finales… The challenges for Bruce and Alfred as well as detectives Gordon, Bullock, and the rest of incorruptible GCPD seem insurmountably dense in GOTHAM‘s first season..  The concerns, fears, and dangers meeting Oliver and his followers and allies are ever-prevalent and escalating in ARROW…  And Barry, allies, friends, and family, start charting fearsome waters as THE FLASH speeds along its maiden season journey. Let’s take a look!

GOTHAM
With a delay time of several weeks, to ring in production of four new final episodes for season one, FOX is now set to bring the house down on fans awaiting the first season finale of the smash hit Batman prequel series.   Things have finally taken a much darker road, particularly in GCPD forensic lab nerd Edward Nygma, in his first serious lapse of madness toward becoming the Riddler.  Also, more darker turn of events take flight for the flightless bird of peril and plunder himself, Oswald Cobblepot, on his eventually turn as the Penguin(including yet another deadly rife with Gordon and Bullock as Cobblepot crosses yet another unrevealed line with them).   INTENSE!

ar
ARROW
For a near three seasons, Oliver Queen has kept up an epic struggle to live up the promise made to his father to save Starling City from corruption, downfall, and demise.  This passing season three, shows Oliver at a huge crossroads with friends, family, and allies questioning his motives and current resolves to end the threats of Ra’z Al Ghul, his daughter Nyssa, and the League of Assassins to Thea, Malcom, the rest of his associates and loved ones, himself, and Starling as well. It appears the the damage of these issues end up turning Detective Lance against Oliver as The Arrow once more plus ominous and startling turns of events involving Roy and the others too.   Yet still, hope and  thrills await much the same, especially with Ray Palmer taking The A.T.O.M. to the streets and kicking some additional butt. ARROW is aiming to get EXPLOSIVE by this season’s end.

th
THE FLASH
The freshman season of THE FLASH has been nothing but ablaze with peril and foreboding twists and turns into the origins and first year journey of Coast City PD’s mild-mannered forensic genius turned fastest man alive, Barry Allen.  The trailer for this upcoming April 14th episode and onward to the finale, shows the world of THE FLASH depicting a darker YET vibrant glimpse into how deep  in challenges Barry will be as he searches for the dreaded yellow speedster, THE REVERSE FLASH, as well as discovering other major dreads such as Gorilla Grodd..  And, “Harrison Wells” finally makes his sinister intentions toward a unrelenting and defiant Barry Allen, known…  The MOST AWESOME PART??  Its no holds barred, ALL-STAR TEAMUP in there too!  Watch and see what we mean!

Excitement, thrills, and grand anticipations!  There you have comic entertainment fans…its in our faces and all over the places throughout this month and next!

Can’t get enough Walking Dead in your life? Well we got some good news for you. We just received the following press release about the new Walking Dead series companion. Check it out:





New Series Will Air Day-and-Date on AMC Global

 

NEW YORK, NY – March 9, 2015 – AMC today announced that it has placed an initial two-season order for a companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for going on three seasons. 

 

The new series (title to be announced) will be set in Los Angeles and focused on new characters and storylines. The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert from “The Walking Dead” are executive producers of the new series, which, like the original, is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson (“Marco Polo,” “Sons of Anarchy”), who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, is an executive producer and showrunner. The series will star Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).

 

“We take incredibly seriously the notion of building a satisfying companion series to the number one show on television. From the beginning of ‘The Walking Dead’ on AMC, we’ve been asked questions about what was going on in other parts of the zombie apocalypse, and what it looked like as the world really did ‘turn.’ Through this new series, we’re going to find out,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson and their writing team, along with an incomparable set of producers, cast and crew have created something remarkable and clearly distinct. We respectfully follow the request of Monty Python as we bring out (the latest of) our Dead.”

 

“We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said.  “I personally take it as a sign that they believe, like we do, that we’ve accomplished our goal of developing something original that can pay tribute to the original show and expand the world I created while at the same time having something new to say with this story.  I’m very grateful that we now have the opportunity to tell this amazing story and show the fans that we really haven’t scratched the surface yet when it comes to ‘The Walking Dead.’”

 

“This vote of confidence from our partners at AMC is gratifying, to say the least,” Erickson said. “We’ve been blessed with amazing writers and a stellar cast – and we can’t wait to build this apocalyptic drama over the next two seasons and hopefully beyond.”

In addition, AMC Global, the international AMC-branded television network, announced it has acquired the international television rights to the series, which it plans to air within 24 hours of the U.S. premiere. AMC Global launched in late 2014 and is available in over 115 countries and territories throughout Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

If you haven’t seen The Walking Dead Episode 502: Strangers, then you better turn away because this post might contain spoilers.

 

After last week’s season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead, things settled down for our group of survivors just a little bit. We still got to see some action and walker threats, but we had some nice moments, like that dinner at the church. Church? Oh yeah we finally got to meet father Gabriel from the comic book. Whats up with that priest huh?TWD_502_GP_0522_0107ed

Rick and the majority of the group don’t trust that guy for some reason, and if you read the comic book you might know why, although it is not a guarantee that it will be the same in the TV show.

This season looks like it’s sticking pretty close to the source material and that is something that fans of the comic book will love.

Here are some videos of tonight’s episode:

INSIDE EPISODE 502: Strangers

MAKING OF EPISODE 502: Strangers

 

 

And here is the most talked about scene from episode 502:

BOB-BQ?

If you remember in the comic book Dale was the one that got captured by the Hunters, which were properly introduced in this episode as the survivors from Terminus. Since Dale is gone poor Bob had to take his place. How is this going to end? Are we going to see Bob scream the iconic words that Dale said in the comics? Im talking about this one:

TaintedMeat

I hope Bob gets to say those lines in the show. I think the reason Bob went outside and started crying it’s because he knew he was gonna die. He definitely got bit by that aqua-walker in the food bank (great make up BTW) and he was sad about having to say goodbye to Sasha and company. We should know by now that when things to get “ok” in The Walking Dead, it means that something horrible will happen. I mean c’mon fellas we’ve been doing this for five seasons. But thats the beauty of it right? We never know who is going to be.

 

How long will Gareth and his Hunters survive? Im not too sure, but one of the things we all know is that the actor who portrays Gareth, Andrew J. West, is a series regular now. What does it mean? Does he team up with Rick and company at some point? Will he survive until the end of the season? So many questions.AMC_TWD_Gareth_Gallery_2396_V2

Where is Beth? What is Father Gabriel hiding? Yes we have many questions that are left unanswered, but we can’t deny that this last 2 episodes have been great in all senses. Stay tuned for next week’s episode you really don’t want to miss it.

AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 starts this Sunday October 12th, and before the first episode airs, AMC has renewed the show for a sixth season.

Walker fans rejoice!

Official Press Release:

Days away from its season five premiere, AMC announced today that it has renewed “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for the last two years and most highly-rated show in cable television history, for a sixth season. The season five premiere is this Sunday, Oct. 12, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the live season premiere of “Talking Dead” at 10 p.m. ET/PT with host Chris Hardwick and this week’s guests Scott M. Gimple, Greg Nicotero and Conan O’Brien.

“We could not be more excited for October 12th as we share new episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’ with fans around the globe,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “In advance of Sunday’s season five premiere, AMC proudly confirms a sixth season order of this extraordinary series. Thank you to Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, the terrific executive producers, and the entire team who brings this compelling world and these rich characters to life. There’s plenty more Dead ahead thanks to their impressive, collective effort.”

Social media activity and interest around “The Walking Dead” is up significantly from the same period a year ago. For several weeks leading up to the season five premiere, the show has been #1 in digital engagement of all returning fall cable series, as measured by the ListenFirst Digital Audience Rating. The show’s social media following and fan engagement are at an all-time high with more than 30 million Facebook fans and 2.7 million Twitter followers, while video views of scenes and trailers for the upcoming season are well outpacing last year’s results.

For season six, Scott M. Gimple will return as the series’ showrunner and executive producer along with executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. AMC also recently announced that it has ordered a pilot for a potential companion series to “The Walking Dead,” based on a new story and new characters from Robert Kirkman.

Around the world, “The Walking Dead” will again be “First on FOX,” with FOX International Channels (FIC) bringing the show to audiences globally within 24 hours after the U.S. launch. Season 5 premieres on October 13 in all of its 125+ markets as part of FIC’s continued commitment to broadcast the series day-and-date internationally. Following the U.S. trend, “The Walking Dead” continues to break records overseas and has more than tripled its numbers on FOX since its launch.IMG_1399.JPG

OK, SPN Fans and WB/DC Comics fans, ARROW fans for that matter, the excitement begins tomorrow! Beginning with Debut premiere of THE FLASH. When last we left Mr. Barry Allen on the Mid season end of ARROW, he was caught in a powerful cataclysmic explosion of lightning struck particle reactor and definitively struck from the ensuing bolt of energy surging from the blast. Barry was left to ongoing recovery in the hospital with Felicity keeping tabs on his condition and regular visits to him therein.

Tomorrow, the wait is over..witness the transformation of a hero!

 

Then next on SUPERNATURAL, the EPIC, LANDMARK, SEASON 10 premier(and 200th episode) of CW’s most popular fantasy horror paranormal series with a HUGE dark and foreboding bang! When we last left the Winchesters, Castiel and Crowley…They were all caught in the final takedown of Metatron once and for all for the control of Heaven once more. Sam and Castiel were victorious in taking him along with the surprise help and sacrifices of Gadriel intervening into the fight as well. Unfortunately, before Metatron’s godly powers from the Angel tablet were dissipated from him. Metatron had already struck a fatal blow to Dean. Dean, still not being powerful enough to withstand Metatron’s fight and advances despite his enhanced abilities with still bearing the Mark of Cain and wielding the First Blade, succumbs to Metatron’s of stabbing of him. With Dean dead, Sam finds Crowley at blame for all this with Dean in the first place, and immediately arranges to summon his presence and force him to bring Dean back.

What surmised is an event we never really expected would happen, the old familar moral of becoming the very thing one swore to destroy has begun. With Dean still bearing the Mark of Cain, still bound to the First Blade and power it possesses, Crowley ignores Sam’s summons and promptly, and rather wittingly places the blade back in Dean’s hold and coaxes his resurrection…AS A DEMON!

Yes, fans, Dean has crossed a dark veil and is slave to the power that is possessing him… But, questions surmount as to whether is it actually the demon in him taking hold, or a darker side to Dean that has been brewing slowly over the last season or so that now has found its free reign. More urgently though, is the question of whether Sam and Castiel can bring Dean back for good again. With Sam not even aware at this point of Dean’s turn to “Dean-mon” and with Castiel’s borrowed time on the grace he took from Theo earlier last season to recoup his power, it looks like this season is in for quite a seige. Let’s how this epic season 10 will unfold…

 


Catch THE FLASH at its debut time tomorrow, Tuesday, 10/7 at 8/7c and after that SUPERNATURAL at its usual time again, 9/8c on the CW

Episode 501, “No Sanctuary”
We learn the true motives of the Terminans as Rick and the group find themselves in a vulnerable situation. Will they be able to work together?

Two weeks ago (thank you AMC!) I was able to watch the season premiere of AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD Season 5. Obviously I am going to keep this review SPOILER FREE, but what I can tell you is that is a really shocking episode. I had a hard time watching the first 10 minutes or so. I seriously don’t know how AMC got away with what we see in this episode. Yes I know, we are talking about THE WALKING DEAD here, it’s supposed to be shocking, but this time they took it to another level.

In case you didn’t know Greg Nicotero directed the episode, as he usually does. He is the one responsible for the make up you see in the walkers and is one of the producers.

We all know he likes gore and horror and fans won’t be disappointed. This episode is packed, and I mean packed with action.
In regards to this episode Nicotero said:
This was my eighth episode directing and it was by far the hardest episode I’ve ever directed. We are constantly trying to up the ante. The opening teaser is something that is so completely different than anything we’ve ever done with the show. It was so much fun, but so hard.

There’s a lot of loose ends that get tied and there’s a few more questions that will be answered in the future. Rick is back as we learned last season, and he is taking names and cashing checks. He is unstoppable in this episode, just wait until you see what he does.
Rick is basically a beast in a cage, and he is ready to take everyone who stands on his way. There’s a lot of suspense since the beginning of the episode and you will be biting your nails because that’s how intense it is. Who is gonna die? Who will survive? What is going to happen? You might see some answers to those questions, but you have to watch the episode first.

IMG_1366.JPG

As we know from the last season, Rick and company get captured by the people at Terminus. The episode picks up with our group of survivors trapped inside the boxcar and are trying to figure out what to do next, I mean , wouldn’t you be doing the same?

In “No Sanctuary” we get to see some characters stepping up to the plate, taking the initiative, and kicking butt like never before.

There’s not much I can say as far as specific details like who does and who doesn’t but theres a lot of action (duh!) walkers, suspense, gore and….. surprises.

I feel like this episode, “No Sanctuary” its a great one to start the season with since it has everything a Walking Dead fan can ask for, and I mean EVERYTHING. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Scott M. Gimple’ writing is impeccable and he manages to bring a lot of elements from the comics to each character, specially Rick.
Don’t believe me? Read what Norman Reedus has to say about it:

“The way Scott Gimple puts them together is so genius. Every little thing means something. He is really good at throwing people in different directions and you never exactly know where you are going to land. When you speculate what is going to happen, it ends up being completely different.”

We get to see some very emotional moments in this episode, which I feel it brings a nice balance to the story.

In conclusion: prepare to be at the edge of your seat, the wait is well worth it. You won’t be disappointed.

Welcome to the recap of the John Barrowman Q&A at Boston Con 2014! I’ll write everything down as it happens!

THIS IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK (NSFW)! He talks about some very adult topics that aren’t suited for younger audiences.  Also, I apologize for the audio quality at some points.

The crowd is going nuts waiting for the panel to start. Haven’t seen a panel this excited at Boston Con before. Seemed like 1,000 people were waiting for the panel but they only let in around 400.

Made sure to point out he’s going to be dirty……first dirty joke came within 30 seconds. Sucks for his nieces are in the crowd.

First question was about the Face of Boe. When asked if he was he said “Yes. There are few theories about how though. There is one gigantic speech, in ‘Utopia,’ where he describes how he dies. I think one of those ways is how he turns into the Face of Boe. His head has to be separated though.”

One fan thanked him for his work with deaf children. Their child benefited personally from it. John was quite touched. He explained how he blocked his ears for a day so he could experience being deaf. John said to visit his website to find out more info.

He got an MBE from England. So he is actually a queen now.

Next question was how easy was it to switch back and forth between seriousness and silliness with Jack. “The Doctor is the leader so Jack could relax a bit around him and by silly. But in Torchwood, he’s the leader of the pack and is carrying the weight of everything on his shoulders. We wanted it to be completely different.”

John was next asked how he picks his characters. “(laughs) The answer is probably going to disappoint you. Characters have come to me generally. I’ve been very lucky for the characters that have been presented to me. I always try to have a bit of me in the character though. For Malcolm Merlin, the part of me that is in him my smile (grinned widely).”

One fan asked if Torchwood would ever be on Broadway, “You don’t want to have Eve sing (laughs). She takes her shoes off and hums (no one laughed). Oh come on that was funny (laughs). I talked to Steven Schwartz and made a version of ‘The Wizard and Me’ from Wicked about the Doctor and Jack.”

Someone asked who would win in a battle with Silence vs Weeping Angels. The crowd got in on it fast and realized it would be a paradox. “I’m not going to lie I’m getting turned on by all of this a little,” joked Barrowman.

That was it for the John Barrowman Q&A! I hope you enjoyed all the video.

knickToday we’ve got a review for something a little different than what we usually cover. Steven Soderbergh is a guy who has brushed up against the comic book genre, but never really dived into the genre. He’s self-admittedly not a big fan, though he worked with Hank Pym himself, Michael Douglas, in last year’s mega-successful Behind the Candelabra and he vouched for the Russo Brothers before they landed the Captain America: The Winter Soldier gig. While he’s not likely to direct a superhero flick in the future, he’s definitely a director you should know about. As a fan of the director’s work, my interest was piqued when I heard about Cinemax’s new series The Knick. Soderbergh directs the entire series after returning from a brief hiatus with creators and writers Jack Amiel and Michael Begler bringing the turn-of-the-century medical drama to life. It didn’t hurt that fan-favorite actor (and Sin City alum) Clive Owen leads the cast. That’s why I was thrilled to get the chance to see the first episode ahead of its big debut this Friday. You can read on for a spoiler-free review of the bold new series.

New York. 1900. It’s a pivotal time in American history as horse and buggies are starting to give way to trollies and motorized “horseless carriages.” The old world and the new world are squaring off, and nothing will be the same from here on out. While culture is changing progressively, medical science is advancing exponentially. Nowhere is this more apparent than at The Knickerbocker Hospital, a high-end facility located uptown, away from the problems and plagues affecting the poor areas of the city inhabited by those filthy immigrants. The Knick is led by Dr. John Thackery (Owen), who has become the chief surgeon after the previous title holder Dr. Christenson (fantastically portrayed by Matt Frewer) shoots himself after yet another failed procedure involving a pregnant woman. Thackery is a hot-shot surgeon who sees mortality as a challenge. He tries to internalize each and every medical advancement and then use his own skill to advance it further. While the bodies pile up as each advancement and new procedure is tested, the hospital is losing money. A crooked health inspector and ambulance drivers (lead by Chris Sullivan as Tom Cleary in a standout role) who literally fight for patients in the street try to funnel patients and money to The Knick, but it’s not enough. When some big contributors are pushing for the newly appointed Thackery to hire Dr. Algernon Edwards (Andre Holland) as his assistant, personalities clash. Dr. Edwards is an African-American who studied extensively, but New York is a different world. Thackery is ready for innovation and exploring many medical “firsts,” but he’s not ready to lead the charge for an integrated hospital. The Knick is already called a circus, but it’s about to get even crazier.

knick posterWriters Amiel, Begler, and director Soderbergh craft a series that is big, bold, and ambitious. It is a slow-burner, but the drama, historical setting, and characters keep you watching. This is a visceral series in every sense of the word. Soderbergh takes an unblinking approach to the actual medical procedures and surgeries as we begin with an early C-section in all of its bloody detail all the way to a surgery to remove part of a patients bowels. The camera stays focused on all the blood and internal workings, making this a series with scenes not for the weak of stomach. Soderbergh’s close-ups and steady camera gives all the actors, especially Owen, room to say volumes with just a look. Tight shots tell just as much story as wide, sweeping shots showing off all the beautifully presented, and historically accurate, sets. The production value is there, and 1900s New York has never looked better. The clash between new and old is a metaphor for the series, but it is also visually represented from the horses sharing streets with trolleys to the gas lamps being thrown out in favor of this new electricity deal.

This is truly an ensemble piece. Owen is a strong leading man who brings equal parts gravitas and damage to the cocaine addicted Thackery, but he isn’t alone in shining performances. Andre Holland’s Dr. Algernon is a proud and capable man trying to navigate the racist hospital after being treated as an equal in Europe. The aforementioned ambulance team, led by Chris Sullivan as Tom Cleary, bring a bit of humor to a serious and tense series. From the health inspector to the slightly weasel-y hospital director, each character begins fully-formed and multi-faceted right out of the gate. Each gets a moment to stand out in the first episode, and it seems there’s going to be room for plenty of exploration throughout the remaining 9 episodes.

Bottom Line: The Knick is the grandfather of all medical dramas. In a current TV landscape where medical dramas are a dime a dozen, The Knick plays up some of those tried and true story types and gives it an interesting and historical twist with operating rooms full of hand cranks and bottles of ether. This is the beginning of modern medicine, and that can be interesting in its own right, but The Knick pulls you in with a cast of brilliant characters. Welcome to the circus. See you Friday night.

Also, the show was sent to us in one of the coolest boxes we’ve seen in some time. Check out some pics from the unboxing. The show was great, but this was just icing on an already bloody great…cake. Yeah, we’ll go with that.

I was lucky enough to cover the very popular Arrow press panel and talk to some of the stars of the show. The questions range from how season 3 starts, to how the relationship between Oliver and Felicity has changed since the infamous ‘I Love You’ scene, to where Oliver, Felicity, Roy, and the ever present Diggle stand due to Ollies lack of funds. It was a fun panel with some pretty awesome questions answered so give it a listen and I hope you enjoy.

It’s not much of a secret that comic books are taking over our televisions this fall. The CW is leading the charge with the return of Arrow and its spin-off, The Flash, along with the lesser known iZombie. Over at ABC, we’ll have the return of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which took things up a few notches in the final episodes of their freshman season. NBC is getting in on the game with their adaptation of Constantine, centered on John Constantine and the Hellblazer comics. That series, is expected to bring in some new names as well, such as The Spectre. Finally, we have one of the more anticipated series over at Fox, with Gotham. 

This highly anticipated series documents the early days of Jim Gordon, when he first signs on as a detective, as well as the origins of several of Batman’s most notorious foes, such as The Penguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. From what we’ve heard, Gotham is more of a gritty cop drama than it is comic book-like, which is a good thing. It’s heavy, dark and violent. Sound like it’s pretty accurate to me! We’ve got a bunch of new character posters highlighting the main players in the series, as well as new trailer focusing on the baddies and how they seem to be tied to Jim Gordon and the young Bruce Wayne. Check it out!

CONSTANTINE Finds Its New Leading Lady; More DC Characters Will Be Joining The Series http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/constantine-finds-new-leading-lady-dc-characters-will-joining-series-274110 http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/constantine-finds-new-leading-lady-dc-characters-will-joining-series-274110#comments Tue, 15 Jul 2014 04:57:00 +0000 http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/?p=274110 In a rather surprising move, Lucy Griffiths, who filled the role of Liv in the upcoming television adaptation of Constantine, was dumped after filming just one episode.

celayaIn a rather surprising move, Lucy Griffiths, who filled the role of Liv in the upcoming television adaptation of Constantine, was dumped after filming just one episode. The reasoning for this, according to the show’s producers, was that they, and the story were being “hamstrung” by her. Essentially, they wanted someone who could go toe-to-toe with John Constantine, played by Matt Ryan and offer up someone less…in the way, as I interpret it. The closing scenes of the pilot, which will officially make its world premier at San Diego Comic Con, will be re-shot to explain the sudden absence.

To replace her, producers went on the search for a Latina actress to fill the role of Zed, a character ripped from the pages of the Hellblazer comics. According to Deadline, it looks as though they have found their actress in Angelica CelayaSome may recognize Celaya from her time on Burn Notice and the recent reboot of the Dallas franchise Zed has psychic capabilities and a long history with Constantine, which will make for a more true and faithful adaptation.

The good news doesn’t end there however, as it was revealed that some familiar DC Comics faces will show up in the series. In the trailer for the series, we saw a glimpse of Dr. Fate’s helmet, suggesting that the character, or at least the magical helmet will have a role in future episodes. This also means that most of the DC occult universe is at their disposal, which leads us to our next bit of news. In a recent interview with IGN, series producers David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone, revealed that another character will be making his way into the Constantine world. Cerone is the one who spilled the beans.

1876f6c548786b453ef4fa817bdedccd“Look, I’m just bringing you in on the early creative discussions,” Cerone said. “It might happen, it might not. It’s just the point you’re catching us at. Right now, episode five is off on outline. Within the context of episode five, we had a need for a police officer who sees that supernatural evils exist. Right there, okay, that’s an opportunity to introduce a DC character. So we talked to our DC representatives and we’re like what if we make this character Jim Corrigan, who goes on the become The Spectre.”

For those not familiar with the mystical character, Jim Corrigan is a police officer who isn’t good with the status quo and takes matters into his own hands. He is eventually killed and returns as The Spectre. Now, don’t expect Spectre to show up in episode five of Constantine, but I think we can expect to see the groundwork being laid out for him. Being that the whole occult universe of DC Comics may be at the disposal of the writers and producers, we may be seeing a lot more of the darker characters.

It will be interesting to see how this will effect Guillermo Del Toro’s take on Justice League Dark, which he’s been working on for some time. That film was to be centered on John Constantine and feature characters like Deadman, Etrigan, Zatanna and more. As with many Del Toro projects, however, that film is taking a while to come together.

MV5BMTg5NjQwMjY5MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDQ0MTU4OA@@._V1_SX214_CR0,0,214,317_AL_The CW is still charging forward like a freight train in regards to their two big comic book properties, Arrow and its new spin-off The Flash. Both these series will be at this years San Diego Comic Con with screenings of the premiers of each show, along with cast members to do a Q&A. It looks like there may be one more cast member joining The Flash panel as they have a new addition to the show, and he’s got close ties to Arrow’s Stephen Amell.

It was revealed today that Robbie Amell, network veteran and cousin to Stephen Amell, has joined the cast of The Flash, playing Ronnie Raymond, better known as Firestorm. Well, part of FirestormThe role is listed as recurring, so he’ll be around for a bit and will make his debut in the third episode of the season.

Ronnie Raymond, a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into The Flash.
“Flash” executive producerGreg Berlanti said of Amell’s casting: “Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm) — and to actually have someone with Robbie’s talent playing the role is beyond exciting. We can’t wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out.”

Amell is no stranger to The CW, as he has had roles on The Tomorrow People. In the comics, Raymond was caught in a nuclear accident alongside physicist Martin Stein. The encounter fused to two together, forming the nuclear-powered Firestorm. Since Stein was unconscious during the event, it was Raymond who took control of the Firestorm form, with Stein serving as an inner conscious; a voice of reason.

The Flash also stars Grant Gustin, Daniell Panabaker, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett and Tom Cavanagh. It will premier on The CW later this fall.
