VIDEO INTERVIEW: Krysten Ritter (Chloe) from Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23

November 20th, 2012


Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 (the B shortened for network television purposes) is a quirky, super funny comedy in its second season. It revolves around June, a girl who came to the big city with stars in her eyes only to find out quickly that she lost her job and her long term boyfriend and has to move in with Chloe (the aforementioned “b”). Chloe is best friends with James Van Der Beek (who plays himself) and has found herself in every situation from running People Magazine to picking a person annually to date and then dump. I recently had the chance to chat with the lovely Krysten Ritter (who plays Chloe) about tonight’s epic sounding Thanksgiving episode, living vicariously through Chloe and a love interest for her character.

INTERVIEW: Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) from The Walking Dead

November 18th, 2012

The Walking Dead has been so great this season, as well as being incredibly gory (I have to watch through my hands over my eyes sometimes, I’m not ashamed to admit it) and intense. The gang has found what they thought was a safe spot in the prison but they’ve learned the hard way that it’s not as safe as it may seem. A couple weeks ago, there were some huge deaths and Lori’s baby was born, leaving the crew to pick up the pieces and care for a new life. I recently had the chance to chat with Lauren Cohan (who plays Maggie) about *that* death/birth scene with Lori and Carl, the inevitable meeting with the Governor and the challenges of playing someone who has seen the best and worst of humanity.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes”

November 16th, 2012


Hey people, TVD is new again with “We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes.” With the holidays fast approaching, I get it. (Ba dun bing). Okay, we’re not talking about this opening anymore. It keeps changing every week, and I’ll just have to accept it even though it’s weird to me.

Five Things To Know About Arrow “Legacies”

November 14th, 2012

Arrow Episode 6

Arrow started off as one of my favorite fall dramas and it has kept up its amazing momentum. The story of our hero, Oliver Queen, continues to unfold through flashbacks and we are slowly beginning to realize just how much he went through on the island and how he became the crime fighting “vigilante” he is today. There’s romance, teen issues (Thea, pull yourself together) and all the makings of a wonderful CW drama. I had the chance to screen tonight’s episode “Legacies,” and it was fantastic, as usual. Keep reading for 5 Things to Know About “Legacies.” A special shout-out to Josh for helping me piece this together. Not to worry, there are only very minor spoilers!

INTERVIEW: Scott Porter (George Tucker) talks Hart of Dixie Season 2

November 13th, 2012


Hart of Dixie is such a wonderful mix of quirky small town, beautiful southern boys, and tons of romance. The show has really come into its own in its second season, and more people should be watching. I recently had the chance to chat with Scott Porter (who plays George) about George’s love life, his bromance with Wade, and why Scott Porter was not impressed in September.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “The Killer”

November 9th, 2012

The Killer

Hey peeps, we’re back with some more TVD. This episode is called “The Killer,” and there most be some serious killing going on because pretty much everyone on this show is a killer. (Spoiler Alert: yep, serious killing). Okay guys, the opening changed again. This is just getting weird.

We start where we left off – with Connor and the Professor. Connor killed Nate and took his head to get the venom from his gums (blech). The Professor wants Connor to keep Bonnie out of harm’s way. Connor doesn’t care about all of that mess obvs. (I have no idea what the Professor’s deal is, but I’m sure it will be awesome and connect with everything soon enough).

INTERVIEW: Jane Levy (Tessa) talks Season 2 of Suburgatory

November 7th, 2012


Suburgatory is such a delightful comedy that I wish more people were watching. In Season 2, Tessa is slowly starting to like her “pleasant nightmare” of living in Chatswin. Her dad, George, is starting to date polar opposite Dallas and just when things seem to be looking up, Tessa’s mom is going to come back into the picture. What I love about this show is that it is funny and wacky and crazy, all while staying grounded. There are touching and heavy and heartwarming moments and moments where a family dresses up in cat costumes for a fall talent show. Seriously, you should watch this show. I recently had the chance with Jane Levy (who plays Tessa) about what’s coming up this season, Tessa’s budding relationship with Ryan and how her mom will factor in.

An Evening with ABC’s Castle

November 5th, 2012


Last night I had the privilege of heading out to USC and listening to Stana Katic and Andrew Marlowe chat about Castle. ABC screened last week’s episode, “Probable Cause”, and tonight’s episode, “Final Frontier.”

Here’s what we learned from their chat:

  • The Castle fandom is seriously dedicated. Some people flew in from other states and even other countries for the event AND people waited in line for hours to get in. It’s like Comic-Con on a much smaller scale. There were maybe 200 people in the room and I heard rumors that another hundred got turned away after the room filled up.
  •  The writer of “Final Frontier”, Kate Sargeant, was in the audience and seemed thrilled with how well the episode played.
  • Beckett’s middle name is Houghton. Marlowe was inspired by Katharine Hepburn.

REVIEW: The Vampire Diaries “The Five”

November 2nd, 2012

The Five

Tonight’s Vampire Diaries is titled “The Five,” which is legit because I want to know the deal with that mess is. And we do find out, huzzah! First things first, we keep adding to the opening. (And I’m like what up peeps? This is going to be like 30 minutes long by the time we reach the series finale).

The episode then begins with 5 beefy dudes in a circle who probably all tried out for the role of Thor (better luck next time guys!) There’s a witch doing some witch stuff in the center and the tattoos start to form on their body. Also, mah boys got swords. This was a flashback obvs.
