In 1986, three kids mysteriously died after knocking at the door of 59 Oakwood Lane. The case was never solved. The killer never locked away. The urban legend says that anyone who knocks on that door again will meet the same ghastly fate. On Halloween night, Grace (Wynonna Earp’s Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and her friends ignore that superstitious warning and instead, they knock knock, knock.
Kevin Alejandro believed he knew all the ins and outs of portraying a law enforcement agent–until Lucifer. The 41-year-old actor honed those types of procedural roles on various TV series, including Southland, Golden Boy and The Returned.
Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite horror icons. He’s fun, acerbic, and honest in the most down-to-earth way possible. This week he arrives in Toronto for Fan Expo, and I had the chance to speak with him about his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, and what it’s like meeting with fans. Campbell even had some advice for fans coming out to meet him this weekend.
Midnight, Texas provides a safe haven for supernatural and human misfits. The remote town’s residents include a vampire, an angel, a witch and an assassin-for-hire. However, each one of these misfits harbour some deep, dark secrets. Every week, the TV series fills in the blanks for one of the characters. In tonight’s episode, “Unearthed”, pawn shop owner Bobo Winthrop’s (Dylan Bruce) past comes back to haunt him.
Independent wrestling has never been more popular and prevalent than it is now around the world. We start our multi-week look into how wrestling and its fans have changed in recent years by looking at the rising popularity of Toronto based Smash Wrestling, which international audiences can now catch Thursday nights at 10pm on Fight Network.
Actor Varun Saranga is having the busiest summer of his professional life this year, and he’s relishing every moment of it. The Scarborough, Ontario native recently joined the ensemble cast of the SyFy and Space original series Wynonna Earp (airing on Fridays at 10pm) for the second season, and it was recently announced this past weekend that it would be returning for a third next year. But for the already veteran performer and emerging filmmaker, Wynonna Earp and his groundbreaking character on the show are only the start of the new whirlwind phase of his career.
Change is empowering women–from the Women’s Marches in the United States, and female mentorship programs like Sheryl Sandberg’s #LeanInTogether–and on television Netflix has been a strong supporter of bringing women together, and to the forefront of their own stories.
The fate of the timeline and the world hang in the balance in 12 Monkeys. The show began in 2043 with scavenger Cole (Aaron Stanford) splintering back to the year 2015 in order to prevent the Army of the 12 Monkeys from unleashing a virus that would wipe out mankind. Along the way, virologist Cassie Railly (Amanda Schull) and enigmatic math genius Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire) joined the cause and have proven integral in thwarting their enemies.
Murder has never been funnier than in NBC’s Trial & Error. The series follows Nicholas D’Agosto as Josh, an eager New York defense lawyer who ventures to the small Southern of East Peck Hill for his first case. Could beloved and eccentric poetry professor, Larry Henderson (John Lithgow), who constantly incriminates himself by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, possibly have murdered his wife? Hilarity ensues as Josh’s ragtag legal team of bumbling misfits piece together the clues and mount a defense. Tonight’s two-part finale will reveal who the killer is–and whether Josh has a future as a lawyer.
