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.
