Why Aren’t More People Watching ORPHAN BLACK?

AA_BBCA_press_orphanblack_thumbnail_03-500x211

The Most Terrifying Murderer on Television is a Woman You’ve Never Even Heard Of.

Bone chilling music crashes through the scene; a familiar uneasiness comes over me. Helena is here, she commands every inch of my Macbook as if she is a virus that I can’t exit out of. I am entranced by this intense and naïve creature, who dims all those around her. In “Effects of External Conditions” we met this beautifully haunting character, and although you may expect to be repulsed by her barbaric and gruesome disposition, you can’t help but savor the moments she graces your screen. There’s just one problem: why isn’t she hailed as one of the best characters of our generation? Why isn’t she on t-shirts? Why isn’t she the center conversation? The topic of more articles? Why is it that, Tatiana Maslany, the fearless woman behind this character isn’t recognized and admired as affectionately as she should be? Is it because she isn’t a man? Is it because her killings aren’t justified with an alpha male complex like that of Dexter Morgan? Or is it because audiences have yet to discover this unique, little show?

FINDING CARTER Scoop: Anna Jacoby-Heron Talks Secrets, Being the Good Twin and Taylor’s Romantic Prospects

Anna Jacoby-Heron finding carter

What is the bigger nightmare: your sister being abducted at the age of 3 or how your family falls apart when she comes home 13 years later? For Taylor Wilson (Anna Jacoby-Heron), both options are equally tough and nightmarish.

In the new MTV drama FINDING CARTER, the spotlight is turned on one family after their daughter is returned after being abducted as a young child. But just what happens when someone who did not know they were abducted is forcibly returned and does not want to be there? Curiously, it is not what anyone expects and that is what makes FINDING CARTER so fascinating. Just what will Carter (Kathryn Prescott) do next and how will the family she comes home to handle it? For her twin sister Taylor, life has changed as she knew it and she is not sure whether it is for better or worse. Only one thing is certain: she loves her sister and is grateful to have her back.

In a recent exclusive interview, co-star Anna Jacoby-Heron happily talked about her character Taylor’s acclimation to being reunited with her twin sister and the ripple-effects Carter’s return has on everyone’s lives. Read the rest of this entry »

TCA 2014: Quick Takes From FX’s TCA Presentations for TYRANT, THE BRIDGE, THE STRAIN, SONS OF ANARCHY and FARGO

fx tyrant

On Day 13 of the 16-day biannual Television Critic’s Association Summer 2014 Press Tour, FX introduced its new programming, and the following is a snapshot-look at a few of its new and returning series.

TYRANT
“Tyrant” is FX’s new summer series that debuted June 24th, about a fictional Middle East country Abbudin run by a family dictatorship. Then, on the day of his grandson’s wedding, the reigning dictator Al Fayeed dies, leaving his eldest son Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) to take over. Unfortunately, the younger son, who had fled to the U.S. twenty years earlier changing his name from Bassam to Barry (Adam Rayner), had chosen this pivotal time to return for his nephew’s wedding, and once the father dies, Barry feels compelled to stay to help ease boiling tensions in the country by standing by his older brother Jamal’s ascension to power. The Al Fayeed family has been such an oppressive ruling dictatorship that now that the ruthless father has died, the entire country is unwilling to be subjugated to another. With Jamal’s taking over his father’s role and showing signs of being even more ruthless than his father, the country is on the verge of upheaval with violent protests erupting all over. So Barry is uncertain if he should flee with his family before things get any worse, back to their safe and comfortable lives in the U.S., or if he can really make a difference by staying and supporting his brother’s regime. “Tyrant” is show is a bleak look at tyranny and the tensions of a family that is uncertain how to maintain their position of power or even if they should continue to wield such unchecked power over an entire nation. The theme of the show is “the price of power” and it is explored in a thought-provoking fashion. First point of interest: As intellectually stimulating as it is to watch, “Tyrant” has graphic violence, some of which is sexual violence that can be stomach-turning. Point of interest: Due to a recent military conflict, “Tyrant” relocated the location for filming from Israel to Turkey. (“Tyrant” is a 10-episode series, with four episodes having already aired. New episodes air on Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. on FX.) Read the rest of this entry »
