Arrow-Season-3-Poster-2

When you wrap up your second season with another near city-leveling incident, viewers were left to wonder rightfully, how do you top that?

April 24th, 2014

bad-teacher

New CBS comedy Bad Teacher, based on the movie of the same name, premieres tonight on CBS. It has an all-star cast of Ari Graynor, Ryan Hansen, Sara Gilbert and David Alan Grier. I have to say I was a fan of the Cameron Diaz movie and it seems like an interesting concept for a TV series. I got to sit down with star Ari Graynor and talk to her about what drew her to TV and the project, high school memories and more.

The Brilliant, Brutal, Beautiful World of Breaking Bad

August 8th, 2013

BreakingBad2

To challenge conventions. To defy authority. To break bad. Creator Vince Gilligan couldn’t have picked a better title for a series that does just that. Walter White (the series’ lead character) isn’t the first anti-hero portrayed on television nor will he be the last. In fact, featuring an anti-hero as the lead character on a television series is something of a trend these days. So what is it that makes the story of Walt unique? It’s honestly hard to put into words the answer to that question. Breaking Bad is so chock full of goodness that I would have to write an 100 page piece to accurately touch on everything the show has done right. Breaking Bad strays from the conventional and completely reverses the traditional storytelling evolution from good to bad as we follow Walt’s transition from his mundane life as a family man and high school chemistry teacher to a full blown meth producer and drug dealer. The show is brilliant, poetic, edgy, and fun. And if you’re not watching it, you’re seriously missing out. To properly explain why, let’s start at the beginning.

ADVANCE REVIEW: Season Three Premiere of Awkward “Cha-cha-cha-changes” & “Responsibly Irresponsible”

April 16th, 2013

awkward

When last we left our favorite “skitches,” Jenna finally chose (Team Matty vs. Team Jake) and she decided to stay in town for the summer with her beau of choice (Matty), and give her space on the Europe trip to Tamara. We pick up with everyone returning to school. Side note for a moment: Awkward is one of the few shows with high school age students actually GOING to school. I’m kind of amazed by this. But I digress. We learn that Jenna and Matty have basically spent the summer doing a whole lot of making out. Tamara and Jake also seem to have done a whole lot of making out over the summer in Europe, but are still working on the whole DTR situation. But Jenna has been in her own world this summer with Matty, and she has to work to get her friendship back up to speed with Tamara and Ming. And our favorite bitch Sadie is going through a crisis of her own at the beginning of the season. There’s lots of speculation as to what the crisis could be, but I’ll let you watch and find out.

On March 19, 2013 several members of the cast and creative team behind Game of Thrones gathered in Hollywood for the TV Academy’s Evening with Game of Thrones celebrating the upcoming premiere of Season 3.

INTERVIEW: Alan Tudyk (Noah Werner) from Suburgatory

March 27th, 2013

tudyk

Noah Werner has been through the ringer on this season of Suburgatory. He realized that he is not compatible with his wife, falls in love with his housekeeper Carmen (and is then rejected by her in an amazing, hilarious, heartbreaking way), and tonight, he is moving out of the house with baby Opus into a fancy hotel. But like so many things in Chatswin, things aren’t going to go as planned. I recently had the chance to chat with Alan Tudyk, who has played such a fascinating, wide variety of characters, about what he loves about Noah, moving in with George, and some friendly on and off set dieting competition with his co-star Jeremy Sisto. Don’t worry, it’s just because they are both stripping down to their speedos to compete for the coveted December spot in the Men of Chatswin calendar in next week’s episode.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Dena Kaplan (Abigail) from Dance Academy – Part 1

March 25th, 2013

If you haven’t watched Dance Academy, I truly question your taste in television. My Senior Writer, Sarah and I wrote a love letter to Dance Academy last year (check it out here) and we are legitimately waiting with baited breath for season three. Dance Academy is an Australian show that centers around the students attending the fictional National Academy of Dance. But the show is about so much more than that. It is heartwarming, heartbreaking and full of all the teen drama your heart desires. I had the chance to chat with my favorite Dance Academy cast member, Dena Kaplan, who plays Abigail. Abigail is the resident perfectionist, troublemaker, and thorn in everyone’s side. At the end of last season (and don’t keep reading if you have not watched season two, seriously stop right now), it looked like Abigail and Sammy were going to reconcile. And then we all tragically lost Sammy (moment of silence, DA fans), and everyone’s life was turned around. Dena talked about this incredible loss, playing the bitch while keeping her grounded, growing up in the real life version of Dance Academy and lots more. I have a lot of great scoop about season three, but that will be published closer to the premiere.
