  • ‘Conviction’ Not Getting Back Order From ABC; All Existing Episodes Will Air

    ABC has opted not to pick up additional episodes of new legal drama <em>Conviction</em> beyond its original 13-episode order. The series, starring Hayley Atwell, is not being pulled from the schedule. It will stay on the air, playing out its 13 produced episodes, though the drama won’t necessarily stay in its Monday 10 PM time slot for all of the remaining eight episodes. This is not a cancellation, as ABC is retaining an option to order a second season and is keeping the options…

In case of a series order for <em>Conviction</em> and an improbable renewal of the Marvel drama, ABC…

  • TV Review: Agent Carter Season One Retrospective

    Tonight is the UK premiere of the second season of Marvel’s acclaimed Agent Carter TV series, following Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter from the first Captain America movie. Hayley Atwell is brilliant (although the “Crikey O'Reilly” line is awful, she delivers everything else more or less perfectly) and some fairly interesting plot lines have been set up.

  • Ridley Scott Plans The Prisoner Movie

    If any of us were so foolish to imagine Ridley Scott might start slowing down a bit as he draws ever closer to his 80s, we would be sorely mistaken.
