When NBC’s REVOLUTION first debuted, it was premised on the idea of turning the power back on. It had been 15 years since the power went out one day without explanation; and by the end of Season 1, they did turn the power back on — just long enough for the world to try to destroy itself and launched every nuclear weapon at its disposal. Unfortunately, turning the power back on was not the wisest thing to have done when nearly two decades of warmongering and warlord tyranny had become the norm. With the push of a button, Randall Flynn (Colm Feore) nearly annihilated the entire East Coast of the United States. So Season 2 of REVOLUTION took us back to the dark ages, or the norm in the world they had grown used to living in without power and electricity. Everything looked bleak since now they had vast geographical areas obliterated by nuclear bombs and an even larger number of their dwindling population eradicated in seconds. [Read more…]

All the things fans love are coming back with a vengeance in Season 3 of DALLAS. Those wily Ewings and their many nemeses are back with blood feuds, scandalous sex, and big money deals. The world of DALLAS has never shied away from going big. It’s go big or go home. That’s their style and they feel perfectly at home amongst the vast prairies and oil fields of Texas, as well as the high-powered boardrooms and lascivious bedrooms.

The Season 2 heart-break of losing J.R. Ewing (R.I.P. Larry Hagman) is a shadow hard to overcome, but DALLAS remembers its roots and allows John Ross (Josh Henderson), the son of J.R. to take the spotlight as the show’s slippery hero with a devastating smile. It also showcases the other Ewings and their Barnes and Ryland counterparts with equal measure and allows each to carry a storylines deeply intertwined in each other’s lives. [Read more…]

STAR-CROSSED Scoop: Chelsea Gilligan Talks Getting to Play a Bad-Ass Alien Girl

Chelsea Gilligan star-crossed

One would think that one has to watch out for the boys in high school, but when confronted with the likes of an alien teen girl, most human teen boys are simply out of their league. In the new CW series STAR-CROSSED, Chelsea Gilligan portrays Teri, an Atrian teen who has more than a few tricks up her sleeve. Not helping matters is the fact that Teri believes in every fiber of her being that her destined love is Roman (Matt Lanter), an Atrian boy destined to rule their people one day. Teri’s life would be perfect if the Atrians had never crash landed on Earth ten years ago; but they did, and they have been virtual prisoners on Earth ever since. However, with new government mandate ordering seven Atrians to participate in a pilot integration program, Teri’s chance to finally stretch her wings and exercise her power has come. Attending a human high school may be the last thing she wants to do, but it affords plenty of opportunities to get outside their internment camp and discover what the world has to offer. It may provide the long-awaited opportunity to prove to Roman of their destined love. [Read more…]

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Reasons to Take A Peek at the CW’s Alien Drama Series STAR-CROSSED

There is much to appreciate in the new CW drama STAR-CROSSED. First, it has aliens. Second, they have very attractive aliens. Third, it has a lovely dash of romance running through the story. Fourth, it is not just a romance, there is a huge storyline involving rebels on both the human and alien sides who stir up quite a bit of trouble. And fifth, the show remembers to have fun.

STAR-CROSSED features a lively cast of young adults that embody the very essence of the characters created for them. They instinctively know that there is a time to laugh, to cry and to remember that there life-and-death stakes involved for these characters.

When the Atrians first crash on Earth, they were not warmly welcomed. Instead, they were hunted down like invaders and tossed into an internment camp known as the Sector. Only after 10 years of forced-incarceration do humans take the tentative steps to trying to integrate the Atrians into human society. It is done with marked reluctance on both sides as each is fearful of the other. The lack of understanding between the two species demands a level of compassion that few humans or Atrians seem to possess.

At this Winter’s Television Critic Association Press Tour, the producers and few of the stars of STAR-CROSSED provided some answers to what their show is about.

As introduced by Paul Hewitt, the CW’s head of publicity, STAR-CROSSED is described as an “intergalactic love story, where a boy meets girl after boy’s spaceship crashes on the planet’s surface and their budding relationship is tested amid the rising tensions between the human race and the alien species.”

Here are five reasons you should consider checking out STAR-CROSSED: [Read more…]

STAR-CROSSED Scoop: Greg Finley Talks Playing an Alien With A Secret

Greg Finley star-crossed

It seems like each character on the new CW series STAR-CROSSED has a secret. In the case of Drake (Greg Finley), he finds himself having to hide a blossoming love affair. Maybe love is just contagious across the universe, but the Atrians are certainly not immune to it. After 10 years living amongst the humans has taught the Atrians one distinct lesson: humans are not all that much more different than them. In fact, outside of all those tattoos, humans and Atrians look a lot a like. It is any wonder then that Cupid’s arrow may strike both equally?

Drake may not have thought he could ever fall in love with a human, but to his great surprise, he does. Knowing full well that his fellow Atrians are not going to welcome a cross-species romance, Drake hides his love as a great secret. But what is a boy to do when the girl he loves may reciprocate those forbidden feelings?

In an exclusive interview from the set, star Greg Finley teased a bit about Drake’s epic love, Drake’s rocky past with the Trags, and how Drake may just be the Mercutio in this “Romeo and Juliet” tale: [Read more…]

STAR-CROSSED Scoop: Natalie Hall Talks Playing the Queen Bee of Marshall High

Natalie Hall star-crossed

It is nice to be queen. In the new CW series STAR-CROSSED, Natalie Hall portrays the social queen of Marshall High. Her character Taylor is the one everyone looks to for the social cues and she can literally make or break any social circle. But in a nice twist, this queen-bee is deep down a very nice girl. There will be no mean-girl tactics on her watch; well, unless they are rightfully deserved. Taylor is not only the social leader of the school, she is the fashion trend-setter too. Confident in her style, her social prowess and her power to keep things running smoothly under her watch, Taylor is a force of nature.

So when the government mandates that seven Atrian teens are going to be attending Marshall High as a trial integration program, Taylor wants to be the first to welcome them. But what Taylor never anticipates is that one of the aliens is going to catch her eye. Love truly does blossom in the most unexpected of places. If anyone had told Taylor that her destined true love would be found amongst the stars, she would have been the first to scoff at the idea. That is until the day she found it does.

In an exclusive interview from the set, star Natalie Hall talks about Taylor’s uncanny knack at being drawn to bad boys, the joy of working with her co-star Greg Finley and how Taylor embraces the political challenges that have come to Marshall High: [Read more…]
