By Karen Moul

Fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting to see The Governor, a major character in Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel. The wait was over this week as AMC announced on Friday that The Governor will appear in season three and that David Morrisey has been cast in the role.

Morrissey is from England and has appeared in many acclaimed British television series. He is perhaps better known to American audiences for his roles in feature films such as The Reaping, The Other Boleyn Girl, Centurion, The Water Horse, Nowhere Boy and Blitz.

Once Upon a Time 1.13 Review: "Whatever Happened to Frederick"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

once_upon_a_time“Once Upon A Time” has been stuck in a rut for a while now. And as that channel gets deeper, it’s harder and harder for the wheels to jump out of the track. In “Whatever Happened To Frederick”, for every sign of traction on the fairy-tale side, it was brought crashing back by uninspired storytelling and some really atrocious dialogue back in Storybrooke.

Merlin 4.8 Review: "Lamia"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

merlin"Lamia" is highly reminiscent of so many past "Merlin" monster-of-the-week episodes. There's a nice, spooky feel to the episode, and what it might lack in actual scares, it makes up for to a certain degree in atmosphere (especially near the end), except during one particular scene. I do love a good swashbuckling fight scene, but this one sticks out like a sore thumb in what is otherwise a straightforward chiller. Thankfully, this is only a minor distraction from the foreboding atmosphere.

Jeff Pinkner & Joel Wyman on Tonights Game Changing Episode of "Fringe"

**This interview was originally written for NoReruns.net**

By Jamie Ruby


FringeTonight Fox will air the last episode of Fringe, "The End of All Things," before a short hiatus. David Robert Jones returns, and with the ads showing the Observer, it looks to be an exciting episode. The two executive producers of the series, Jeff Pinker and J.H. Wyman, talked with the media yesterday about the all new episode, as well as a bit about what fans can expect moving forward.

The executive producers said that tonight's episode is definitely going to be important to the mythology of the series. According to Pinkner, "It's definitely, as they say, a game changer, in that our characters learn a lot more and the audience is going to learn a lot more about sort of the uber plot of our season bad guy David Robert Jones. The character...certainly for Peter this season and Olivia and Walter is going to start to unfold in ways that, hopefully, will be really both satisfying and challenging to our characters...It's very much a hinge episode that's going to launch us into the back half of the season."

The River 1.4 Review: "A Better Man"

By John Keegan and J.M. Graham

the-river-iconThis was an odd episode. After the credits rolled I looked back on it and considered it a pretty decent episode, one that certainly if it was in another series wouldn’t be really worth mentioning. But after realizing that it was the halfway point of the season, I got to be a bit more concerned. There was not any sense of urgency about the episode, and there hasn’t been really any sort of coherence in the narrative or in the development of the characters. So far it’s meant that the show has just been entertaining, if at times a bit farcical, but it’s nonetheless disappointing.

The Good Wife 3.15 Review: "Live From Damascus"

By John Keegan and Henry T.

thegoodwife-iconI viewed this episode as Will's fall from grace. He may have escaped grand jury indictment, but the show is not going to ignore every little last detail or its consequences. So Wendy Scott-Carr's last act for the SAO was to take the details of Will's client embezzlement to the bar association in a last-ditch effort to stick it to him by getting him disbarred.

Being Human US 2.6 Review: "Mama Said There'd Be Decades Like These"

By John Keegan

This was a tricky episode for “Being Human”, because as much as it has set up a lot of important plot elements in the first half of the season, the job isn’t quite done.  There are a couple of items to cover with Josh and Aidan before the consequences can start piling up, and in the meantime, they had to find something for Sally to do.

Simon Cowell & L.A. Reid: "The X Factor" Auditions Start Next Month

**This interview was originally written for NoReruns.net**

By Jamie Ruby

Simon Cowell and L.A. ReidThe vocal competition The X Factor, which will be airing once again this fall on Fox, will soon be holding auditions for its second season. Auditions open Thursday March 1.

One thing that makes The X Factor unique from some of the other voice series on television, is that it is open to not only solo artists but also vocal groups, the only limit being one must be age twelve or older. This season is also different from last in that now artists with pre-existing contracts can audition as well. The winner will receive a $5 million recording contract with Sony Music.

The unscripted series has previously discovered artists such as last year's winner Melanie Amaro, as well as finalists Astro, Chris Rene, Josh Krajcik, and Marcus Crow, all of who have signed major deals with Sony Music.

Simon Cowell, who is responsible for the idea and format of the series, will return as judge, as well as songwriter and record producer L.A. Reid, who is also the co-founder of LaFace Records.

Yesterday Cowell and Reid talked to the digital media about the upcoming auditions as well as the second season.

Alcatraz 1.7 Review: "Johnny McKee"

By John Keegan and J.M. Graham

alcatraz_iconAfter a pair of stronger episodes, "Alcatraz" falls back into previous patterns with an episode that could have been ripped line for line from “Kit Nelson”. In fact, it is extremely difficult for me not to just copy and paste that review into this one. All of the same criticisms apply: the vague approach to the development of the mythology, the mediocre procedural elements, the bland and obtuse characters, it seems like nothing but spinning the wheels. Even the flashbacks, which have been the saving grace of the series, fell flat in this episode.

Fringe 4.13 Review: "A Better Human Being"

By John Keegan

Fringe-Glyphs-meu-anjo-17630623-160-160I’m not sure exactly when the season stepped up a notch.  I personally feel like it started with “Making Angels”, but looking back, it’s been a fairly steady progression to bring the story to this point.  And the results are stunning: this show hasn’t been this gripping or compelling in quite some time.  Filled with callbacks to the first season and more than a little misdirection, this is another strong entry for the fourth season.

The Vampire Diaries 3.15 Review: "All My Children"

By John Keegan

vampire-diaries-iconNo plot element is allowed to linger overly long on “The Vampire Diaries”, so I suppose I shouldn’t be too shocked that Esther’s plan comes to quick fruition in this episode.  That it merely serves to launch the whole war with the Originals in yet another direction is hardly a shock, but I am a bit annoyed that the writers are backing off one of the better choice made this season.

The Secret Circle 1.15 Review: "Return"

By John Keegan

the-secret-circle-iconThe writers have been hinting at the reveal of John Blackwell for so long, in relation to Cassie’s infusion of dark power, that it was probably inevitable that the eventual arrival of the man would be a disappointment.  And sure enough, I found very little interesting about Blackwell.  If anything, I was left with the notion that he was as terribly miscast as Cassie.

"Awake:" Kyle Killen & Howard Gordon on NBC's Unique New Series

By Jamie Ruby

AwakeOn March 1, NBC will be premiering its new series, Awake, which promises to be a unique series, and with the talented people involved in both production and in front of the camera, its easy to see why this show has all the makings of a hit for the network.

Awake was created by Kyle Killen, who also serves as executive producer. He is probably best known for his short-lived series Lone Star, which was named the best new series on television by multiple publications, and for penning the script The Beaver, which went on to become a feature film starring Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson.

Howard Gordon, who is also an executive producers of the series as well as one of the writers, is not new to the business. He's served as executive producer on popular series such as The X-Files, for which he won multiple Golden Globes, and others such as 24 and Homeland, the latter for which he was responsible for developing for American television. Some of his other credits include the dramas Strange World and The Inside, both of which he created, as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.

In addition, Gordon also finds time to write. His first novel published in 2011 was entitled Gideon's War, and its sequel Hard Target was released last month.
