We all know about Bonnie & Clyde, the notorious outlaws from the Depression era who were young, in love, and ruthless criminals. Director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) is taking on the task of telling their story in a four hour, two night, TV event which will be aired on three different channels simultaneously: History, Lifetime and A&E. The miniseries starring Emile Hirsch (Into The Wild) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) airs Sunday and Monday, and chronicles the events of their infamous crime spree in the early 1930s. Check out the trailer below and read on for a full review.
Glee’s third episode of the season which airs this Thursday at 9pm is titled “The Quarterback” and will be a tribute to Finn Hudson, the lovable football jock with the heart of gold.
Cory Monteith who played Finn Hudson during the first four seasons of the show passed away on July 13th this year at the age of 31. An autopsy revealed that the actor died of “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”
The episode was filmed about a month after Cory died, and the emotion is real. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently said in an interview, “What you will see in the episode is what really happened,” Murphy said of the hour. “…those performances that you’ll see, almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. I’ve never seen a crew that you can’t continue shooting because they’ve left the room sobbing”

From Stephen King and Steven Spielberg comes Under the Dome, a 13-episode television “event” premiering tonight on CBS and Global. Based on the bestselling Stephen King novel of the same name, Under The Dome is the big buzz show of the week and possibly the summer. The show centers around the residents of Chester Mill as they fight for survival after being suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent dome. To find more about it, check out my Summer TV Preview HERE. Our own Editor-In-Chief Andy Burns was lucky enough to watch the premiere over the weekend and says it really delivers some intense moments, so be sure to check out Under The Dome tonight at 10:00pm EST on CBS in the the U.S. and Global in Canada.
Since my all-time favorite show, “The Walking Dead” is now on hiatus, I’m keeping my eyes on Syfy’s newest show, Defiance. My review of last week’s pilot show was not only my way to introduce you and me to the premise and characters, but also for me to understand why my oldest grandson, Jimmy was so hyped over the X-Box Defiance game. I asked if I could play the game with him. He agreed, but I was sorry I asked. Why? Find out after the jump.
I have no idea how we lasted without Game Of Thrones for almost NINE months, but let’s begin by giving ourselves a pat on the back for staying strong. Now our reward is coming to us in 3 days, when Season 3 of the epic fantasy series once again takes over our lives. Nine months is a long time. We all could’ve carried and birthed a child in that time, making it more difficult to remember where we left the characters when Season 2 ended. Below you will find a quick recap to refresh your memory and then keep reading for some Season 3 scoop!
Last week’s episode 13 had Team Prison and Team Woodbury doing their version of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. While Rick called for a truce where each team would play nice, the Governor’s plan was to squash Rick and his team like little bugs. When Andrea tried to play diplomat she was kicked out of the peace talks by both men.
Watching the meeting between Rick and the Governor was like watching a spider inch up to its intended meal, but the Governor better be careful because Rick has a stinger and she’s called Michonne. The meeting ended with the Governor’s declaration of war, “Give me Michonne or die.” What is that crazy Governor planning to do with our Michonne? Find out right after the jump.
