True crime and courtroom drama aficionados might already be familiar with the comprehensive, landmark documentary The Staircase, and if they aren’t, they should get acquainted with it immediately.
Netflix has reimagined Lost In Space, and the fun, dramatic, and action-packed new series debuts tomorrow. Making its premiere in Toronto with a fan screening last night, star Molly Parker was in town for the big event, and I had a chance to sit down with her to talk about the Robinsons and their journey ahead.
Angela Griffin and Shenae Grimes-Beech are laughing when I sit down to talk with them about CTV’s new series, The Detail. The stars have an easy relationship together after filming the show, and they laughed easily and often as they chatted about the characters, making the show, and how the roles affected them.
Lost In Space is landing in Toronto on April 11, with star Molly Parker (“Maureen Robinson”) and Canadian astronaut, Col. Chris Hadfield, coming out for the big premiere, and Netflix is giving away tickets to fans.
CTV’s The Social celebrates its 1000th episode today, in the midst of the show’s 5th season, so I sat down with the four hosts of the talk show to find out about their favorite moments, and how they connect on and off the show.
Krysten Ritter has been fortunate enough to land the coveted role of one of pop culture’s most endearing and timely heroes in recent memory. Returning for the second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones in the titular role, Ritter is the latest performer to transform their career by portraying a “superhero” of sorts that everyday people can actually relate to instead of an unstoppable, goody-two-shoes crime fighter. And to talk to Ritter, one gets the distinct sense that she wouldn’t have it any other way.
I first fell in love with podcasts in the days of Lost and Battlestar Galactica. Each of those series embraced the medium and had official podcasts hosted by their executive producers that offered more insight into the series. It was like a commentary track but even better, since you didn’t have to wait for the eventual DVD release. I started podcasting in 2008 about the show True Blood, and started a Vampire Diaries podcast the following year. It was a way for a group of fans–and some of us who straddled the line between fandom and TV blogging–to discuss each episode of the show in depth, or talk about theories and predictions.
The Magicians have lost their mojo. At the end of the supernatural drama’s second season, magic seemed to simply disappear. Poof! That left numerous characters in quite the predicament, most notably Margo (Summer Bishil) and Eliot (Hale Appleman). The two current rulers of Fillory were about to contend with an army of inhospitable fairy invaders–and, now, they are powerless. However, in season three, audiences know that whether she’s capable of casting spells or not, never underestimate Margo. Ever.

What does the future hold for Ivar The Boneless? Ahead of tonight’s two-hour season 5 premiere of Viking on History, I sat down with actor Alex Høgh Andersen to talk about the complexities of playing Ivar, the frequently vicious, intense character, who also has a deeply vulnerable side hidden away.
