_rbdave73dj1_hires27Delivering pretty much what we’ve come to expect from a comic book superhero series on The CW, tonight’s premiere episode of THE FLASH is lightweight, slick and features an extremely photogenic young cast. A spin-off of the popular CW series ARROW, THE FLASH is based on the DC Comics superhero originally created in 1940 by GARDNER FOX and HARRY LAMPERT. Written and produced by ANDREW KREISBERG, GEOFF JOHNS and the prolific GREG BERLANTI, the new series stars GRANT GUSTIN (GLEE) as Barry Allen, a nerdy assistant police forensic investigator who awakens from an explosion induced coma with superhuman speed. In an amusing nod to the original 1990 CBS series, JOHN WESLEY SHIPP (who played The Flash) has been cast as Henry Allen, Barry’s father.

At a Television Critics Association press conference to promote the series, GRANT GUSTIN admitted he knew little about THE FLASH before taking on the role but has since done his homework. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

THE FLASH debuts tonight on The CW.

_rbdave73dj1_hires26It’s been reported by London’s The Guardian newspaper that the Motion Picture Association of America is being called homophobic because of it giving the inspirational new film PRIDE an R rating thus judging it unsuitable for 17-year-olds unless accompanied by an adult. The movie, which contains no explicit sex or violence, is a culture-clash comedy/drama that details the true story of a group of gay activists who supported workers during the infamous 1984 National Union of Mineworkers strike.

Directed by MATTHEW WARCHUS, PRIDE stars BILL NIGHY, IMELDA STAUNTON, DOMINIC WEST and PADDY CONSIDINE and has been lauded at several international film festivals.

During his recent publicity tour, BILL NIGHY declared the film one of his favorites and praised it for its themes of diversity and co-operation.

We doubt the MPAA ratings board decision is sitting very well with him now.

PRIDE is in theaters now.

_rbdave73dj1_hires25Airing tonight on Fox, the new series GOTHAM is shaping up to be a first rate action adventure. Essentially an ‘origin story’ detailing the events behind the creation of BATMAN and the various super-villains that inhabit his universe, the story so far has concentrated on newcomer FISH MOONEY, SELINA KYLE AND OSWALD COBBLEPOT, characters who will eventually become CATWOMAN and THE PENGUIN. Also slightly foreshadowed are characters who will, somewhere down the road, transform into THE RIDDLER and POISON IVY.

Working within the system of the police station and alongside Detectives HARVEY BULLOCK and JIM GORDON, EDWARD NIGMA is already showing signs of speaking in riddles and it’s pretty clear just from his name alone (E. NIGMA) where he’s headed.

We recently sat down with actor CORY MICHAEL SMITH to talk about his role as EDWARD NIGMA in the new series and he explained the slow build to becoming GOTHAM’S legendary bad guy, THE RIDDLER.

GOTHAM airs tonight on Fox.

_rbolivia68dj1_hires1Premiering tonight on Fox, MULANEY is ostensibly based the daily life experiences of former Saturday Night Live writer-turned-stand up comic JOHN MULANEY as he takes on a job working for a high-maintenance game show host and navigates relationships with friends and neighbors. Shot in front of a live audience and opening with a brief stand-up routine, MULANEY also stars MARTIN SHORT, ELLIOTT GOULD, NASIM PEDRAD, ZACK PEARLMAN and SEATON SMITH.

We recently sat down with ELLIOTT GOULD and ZACK PEARLMAN to talk about the new show and they explained what it was that made the first script so appealing.

_rbdave73dj1_hires24It’s been reported that on-line streaming service Hulu has commissioned J.J. ABRAMS to produce a nine-hour event series based on 11/22/63 the best-selling novel by STEPHEN KING. Published in 2011, the book centers on a high school teacher who discovers a portal into the past and attempts to change history by preventing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

During his recent press tour to promote the release of his upcoming film STEPHEN KING’S A GOOD MARRIAGE, the author talked about his relationship with ABRAMS and their 11/22/63 collab.

1/22/63 is expected to be released by Hulu sometime next year

1Finally in theaters today, the highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of GILLIAN FLYNN’S 2012 best-selling novel GONE GIRL appears to be a critics fave and is generating major on-line Oscar buzz. Directed by DAVID FINCHER, the film is an amazing blend of social commentary and thriller. Stars BEN AFFLECK and ROSAMUND PIKE play a seemingly happy couple whose dark secrets and ultimately unseemly relationship details reveal a rather ugly side of marriage.

During a recent Q & A at the New York Film Festival, AFFLECK talked about why he wanted to be involved with the film, his long admiration for FINCHER’S work and how FINCHER has affected his own work as a director. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

GONE GIRL opens in theaters today.

_rbdave73dj1_hires23Premiering tonight on NBC, A TO Z might just be the most gimmick laden sitcom we’ve seen in a long time. Centered on the courtship of Andrew and Zelda (’A’ to ‘Z’, get it?), we’re told through narration that the story will detail the duration of their dating life (8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days and 1 hour). In addition to that, the title of each episode will begin with a new letter of the alphabet (the pilot is titled ‘A FOR ACQUANTANCES’). But there’s more, series creator BEN QUEEN has been quoted as saying viewers can expect plenty of celebrity cameos and pop culture send-ups. There’s a lot going on in this show.

During the recent Television Critics Association press tour, we sat down with series stars BEN FELDMAN (MAD MEN) and CRISTIN MILLOTI (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER) to talk about how A TO Z came together.

_rbdave73dj1_hires22A major hit on Brit TV, BROADCHURCH has been replicated for American television by Fox and re-branded as GRACEPOINT. Set in a small east-coastal town, the story centers on the investigation into the homicide of a young boy and how it affects the denizens of a close-knit community. DAVID TENNANT (of DR. WHO fame) reprises the role he created in the original series and is joined by ANNA GUNN and NICK NOLTE in the almost scene-for-scene replication of the original series.

During our recent interview at the Television Critics Association press tour, TENNANT gave his thoughts on why GRACEPOINT would attract American audiences.

GRACEPOINT premieres tonight on Fox.

_rbdave73dj1_hires21Considered to be one of this season’s more promising sitcoms, BAD JUDGE will make its series debut tonight on NBC. KATE WALSH stars as the titular Judge Rebecca Wright, whose penchant for hard partying and promiscuous behavior sometimes puts a crimp in the performance of her day job.

Known primarily for her dramatic performances in such shows as GREY’S ANATOMY and PRIVATE PRACTICE, WALSH actually has roots in improv and was looking for a vehicle to highlight her comedic skills. A perfect combination of innate sex appeal and likeable presence make her a great fit for this character and the brand of humor the show is shooting for.

We sat down with WALSH recently and she talked about why she thinks audiences (most particularly women) will find this series appealing.
