Heels Stars Stephen Amell & Alexander Ludwig Talk Season 2

HeelsToday season two of Heels premieres on Starz. The series is set in a close-knit Georgia community and follows a family-owned wrestling promotion and the men and women wrestlers as they try to make it. The series stars Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig as brothers and wrestling rivals Jack and Ace. Season two picks up after the success of the Duffy Wrestling League at the South Georgia State fair as they prepare to make a deal with a streaming service and take it national. Meanwhile, rival promotion Florida Wrestling Dystopia’s Gully seeks revenge.

Amell and Ludwig recently spoke with the press about what fans could expect this season. The two talked about their characters’ relationship as brothers in season two with SciFi Vision. “For Jack, I think it's become a little bit less about worrying about Ace or worrying about Staci or worrying about Thomas or the DWL,” Amell told the site. “He's more focusing on handling his own business and taking accountability for his actions, and the way that he's behaved since his father killed himself, which has been, I think, well intentioned, but misguided, and has hurt people. So, this is very much about him just not trying to wave a magic wand [to] make everything better with everyone all at once, but just taking accountability for his actions, specifically with Ace and Staci…which is a fun thing to play.”

“Ace is trying to pick up the pieces,” Ludwig told SciFi Vision. “He's still a complete mess after what happened. There's a huge rift between the brothers. This show [is] not just a wrestling show. It's about family, and it's about identity. Ace is trying to find his identity in the ring and outside of the ring. What I love about this season so much is not only do the women lead the charge, and you get to see that on a whole other front, which is, I think, really exciting with this backdrop, but you get to see the inklings of what this could be with Jack and Ace, how big this actually could be.”

The Negan Obsession - The Walking Dead: Dead City 1X06, Doma Smo Review

The Walking Dead: Dead City“Doma Smo,” the title of The Walking Dead: Dead City’s final episode, means “We are home” in Croatian, and the episode finds all the characters back home, either literally or figuratively. Hershel (Logan Kim) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) return to the Bricks, Perlie Armstrong (Gaius Charles) goes back to New Babylon, and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) becomes, for the second time in his life, the leader of a group of survivors. The Croat (Željko Ivanek), introducing the Dama (Lisa Emery) and Negan to each other, says it is like “mommy and daddy coming together,” and thus he, too, finds himself “home.”

At San Diego Comic Con on July 21, a second season of Dead City was announced, and when I watched the finale some weeks ago, there was no mistaking the creator’s intention that the series continue. The episode is a collection of open ends, the season itself revealed as a kind of prologue to a show in which Negan becomes the swaggering, sarcastic king of New York, giving Morgan the opportunity to do what he does best in the role. But the character’s redemption, systematically and at times clumsily reinforced during Dead City’s first season, remains intact. Negan is visibly repelled by the Croat’s recollections of their days together in the Saviors, and he responds uncooperatively to the Dama when they meet…until she gives him the keys to a box containing one of Hershel’s toes, sliced off by the Croat on her command. The boy grew close to her during his captivity, it seems, and he told her about Negan killing his father. “I could sense in the rest of this story,” she informs Negan, “what he himself couldn’t: that his father’s killer might feel remorseful, responsible, for the boy whose family he destroyed.” If Negan will not work for her running New York, she indicates, she will further harm the boy. She has read him correctly: unable to tolerate that idea, he appears to concede to her demand.

Video Interview: Annie Murphy’s New Animated Series, Praise Petey, Debuts Tonight on Freeform

Praise PeteyFreeform’s hotly anticipated animated series Praise Petey premieres tonight on Freeform. The new show stars Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek) as Petey, an “it” girl whose well-curated life comes crashing down, forcing her to take on a new challenge and learn what it truly means to be a leader. 

Prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Murphy chatted with journalists about the quirky new series and its hilarious premise.

“When we meet Petey,” Murphy told SciFi Vision, “she's a real New Yorker, a real city girl who thinks she has it all figured out. But unfortunately, she loses her job, her apartment burns down, she breaks up with her boyfriend, and her dead dad bestows a cult upon her. So, she has to move from New York to the south and try to figure out how to be the leader of a cult with no previous experience.”

What Murphy loves most is creator/writer/EP Anna Drezen (Saturday Night Live)’s no-holds-barred approach. “It's so uncensored and so outrageous. It's very, very funny,” she enthused, “but it's also a very smart show, and it's touching on a lot of different relevant themes. So, I think if you have a quirkier sensibility, then this show is going to be very, very, very up your alley.”

Repeating Histories - The Walking Dead: Dead City 1X05, Stories We Tell Ourselves Review

The Walking Dead: Dead City“Let’s face it, the ending is all that matters.” Taken at face value, this line from the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: Dead City, “Stories We Tell Ourselves,” might suggest a certain cynicism on the part of creator Eli Jorné for his own genre. And indeed, given the pacing of this episode, and the lack of narrative energy in the show thus far, one hopes that the finale next week might go some way to salvaging an otherwise frustratingly stodgy series.

For much of “Stories We Tell Ourselves,” nothing really happens. People walk around - limping, tiptoeing, lurching - and they also run. Two characters we’ve had no reason to care about are lost. Another character we don’t care about tells, unprompted, a personal story to Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), because, one assumes, Jorné couldn’t be bothered to find a more organic way to make the character sympathetic. Regrettably, this unexpected overshare still fails to make us care about him.

The episode deals, at a thematic level, with the “stories we tell ourselves to sleep easier,” as Perlie Armstrong (Gaius Charles) describes them. Those stories, he implies, are essentially falsehoods, and we are prompted to consider the ways in which each character lies to themselves. The Croat (Željko Ivanek)’s lie - to us and to himself - is that he is a villainous mastermind, when in fact he is a fawning, subservient lackey to the Dama (Lisa Emery). Maggie (Lauren Cohan)’s lie appears to be that Negan is a monster who deserves to have his life traded to the Croat for Hershel (Logan Kim)’s, as her real plan is revealed in the closing moments of the episode. Armstrong’s lie is that his work for the Babylon Federation is noble and just: “tranquility and order” are worth achieving at any cost. Tommaso (Jonathan Higginbotham) deceives himself with the belief that betraying his people to the Croat was for their own good. And the lie Negan tells himself? There doesn’t seem to be one, because Negan 2.0 is intended to be a self-aware and emotionally intelligent man who is unafraid to confront his weaknesses. Dead City should try to emulate those qualities if it gets a second season.
