David Giuntoli & Russell Hornsby Star in "Grimm"

By Karen Moul

GrimmOne of the bright spots on NBC’s fall lineup is Grimm, a supernatural police drama based on the classic Grimm’s fairy tales. The series is drawing steady-but-not-huge numbers, averaging more than 5 million viewers each week. Not bad for Fridays at 9 pm, a tough slot for a new genre series where it has to compete against cult favorites Supernatural and Fringe.

Grimm
stars David Giuntoli as Nick Burkhardt, a Portland cop who learns he’s descended from a long line of mythological crime fighters tasked with keeping marauding fairy tale villains in check. Nick’s partner, Hank Griffin (Lincoln Heights’ Russell Hornsby) is in the dark for now, but how long will Nick’s secret remain hidden?

The Walking Dead: Episode 2x03, “Save the Last One”

By Karen Moul

The Walking DeadI take back much of what I said last week. In “Bloodletting” I thought we were seeing another side of Shane, a side that was loyal and responsible and almost likeable. This week, I’m pretty sure that is the last time anyone will use those words to describe Shane.

But I don’t mind being wrong when we get an ending this delicious. The final scene was so shockingly great, most viewers didn’t even notice that almost nothing happened during the entire rest of the episode. Those last five minutes cemented Shane’s position as the most compelling character on the show. Yes, his actions were horrifying, but they raised a number of fascinating questions about morality and survival and to what extent the two are compatible.

Rick is the show’s moral center and always does the honorable thing; he’s constantly risking his life for others. He went back into Atlanta after Merle, he ran off after Sophia, and he gives away guns to everyone he meets. There’s no way he would do the things that Shane has done, even if it meant he would survive.

But while Rick sees the world as black and white, Shane is operating in a very grey area.

The Walking Dead: Episode 2x02, "Bloodletting"

By Karen Moul

The Walking DeadWith thirteen episodes this season, the writers of The Walking Dead have the luxury of slowing down and developing the characters. Week two was another slow episode, but I think these early episodes devoted to character development will pay off down the road.

I love what they did with Shane this week. They’ve been building him up to be a villain almost as dangerous as the walkers. He left Rick for dead, slept with his wife, and tried to make Rick’s family his own. He even tried to rape Lori. He really has not been a good friend.

And suddenly, there is another side to Shane, a side that is likeable.

Ben Hansen & Jael Pardo Return for More Episodes of "Fact or Faked"

By Lynn Tackitt

Fact or FakedWe have all heard of UFO's and possible alien abductions and ghosts and hauntings, but do we all believe them or do we wonder if someone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes? Would it even be possible to fool people regarding the out of the ordinary lives we live in?

In Syfy's show Fact or Faked, they deal with the reality of the claims of hauntings and UFO's on a more scientific scale. Taking myths and tales of modern lore and using scientific experiments to determine if there is any validity, or if they have been faked for entertainment purposes, they deliver a good show that often delivers more thought provoking questions than what you had when you started the show.

We joined in on an interview with Ben Hansen and Jael de Pardo who shared their adventures and the hopes for future shows.

“The Sing-Off” says goodbye to The Collective

By Karen Moul

The Sing-OffWeek six was hip-hop week on The Sing-Off. The genre was a tough challenge for a number of groups, and when the smoke cleared, The Collective were on their way home to Nashville, but they are leaving the show with no regrets.

“We were extremely happy with our performance,” says group member Ruby Amanfu.

“If you had been a fly on the wall that week, you would have seen some people really pulling out all the stops, drawing on every possible inspiration to do what we felt was best for that song.”

Daniel Ellsworth agrees. “Despite the fact that the hip hop genre was sort of out of our comfort zone, I think we went in really confident.

“It was different than some of the other stuff we had been doing. And so it was a little more fun,” he says, “a little more playful, so we thought we were just going to go out and have a blast. And that’s what we did. We just left it all out there.”

How will this experience influence the group members’ solo careers?

Ken Marino guest stars on “Whitney”

By Karen Moul

Ken   MarinoKen Marino is coming to Whitney! The comedian guest stars in this week’s episode as Brian, the older brother of Whitney’s live-in boyfriend, Alex. When Brian crashes on the couple’s couch, old sibling rivalries come to the surface, causing the brothers to brawl.

Marino is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Glenn Ritchie on Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital. He also appears in the Starz series Party Down. Viewers who are unfamiliar with those shows may also recognize him from his countless guest spots on everything from Dawson’s Creek to Grey’s Anatomy.

"It was a fast week," Marino says of his time on the Whitney set. "I enjoyed pretty much all of it. I think the actors on the show are a lot of fun.

"And then the people running the show are very passionate about it and so it's fun watching a group of people creating a show that are really into it and passionate about it."

Chemistry among the cast and crew is something Marino thinks is critical to any show’s success.

The Walking Dead: 2x01, "What Lies Ahead"

By Karen Moul

The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead returned this week, opening the second season with a truly terrifying hour of television. Unfortunately, the episode was an hour and half long, which meant the story dragged at times.

Although the episode was perhaps longer than necessary, it was a great premiere in which the creative team gave notice that season two raises the stakes in every way. In particular, the search for Sophia was too drawn out. But I totally fell for the diversion, which meant I had a great OMG moment at the end when Carl was shot. I don’t know if he’ll live or die, but I’m not counting on him making it. If the writers are willing to shoot him, I think they’re willing to kill him. We’ve been warned: don’t get too attached to anyone this season.

Interview: NBC’s “Whitney” Earns Full Season Pickup

By Karen Moul

Dan O'Brien and Rhea SeehornThe fall season brought a new entry the NBC’s Thursday night lineup: Whitney, a half-hour sitcom created and produced by stand-up comedienne Whitney Cummings. The series centers on Whitney and Alex, a happily cohabitating couple with no interest in getting married anytime soon.

The freshman comedy wasn’t well-received by most critics and drew tough criticisms prior to its premiere. But the true judges, the viewers, felt otherwise. While Whitney isn’t exactly a hit, the show drew a large enough audience to warrant a full season pickup.

What is it about Whitney that excites viewers?

Nick Lachey: I'm Blessed to Host "The Sing-Off"

By Karen Moul

?Nick LacheyThe Sing-Off returned this fall with an extended season, an expanded field of 16 teams, and a new face (Sara Bareilles) on the judges' panel.

Two things haven't changed: Nick Lachey is back for another season as host, and he still loves being a part of the show.

"It's such a fun show to be a part of," Lachey says excitedly. "I think the best thing about the show for me is being around people who are so passionate and excited to be musicians and to be part of music.

"When you've been in the business a while," he admits, "sometimes you forget the passion and the excitement that you had when you first stepped into it. And it's refreshing to be around people who have that excitement and passion."

"So I'm blessed that I'm able to be the host of The Sing-Off."
