SCRIPTED SHOWS

  • AMC+ Gangs Of London – Thursday, October 1 Show More
    Gangs of London’s critically acclaimed first season was a huge success in the UK as it took audiences on an immersive journey into the hidden heart of the capital. The 10-episode first season of the action-packed thriller debuts on AMC+ this fall for US audiences and has been renewed for a second season with the network on board to co-produce. Set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities, Gangs of London tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated. The series stars a multi-talented ensemble cast including Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Pure, Black Mirror), Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù (Humans), Colm Meaney (Star Trek, Hell on Wheels, Layer Cake), Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials, Black Earth Rising, Kiri), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones, Suits) Paapa Essiedu (Press, Kiri) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (MatherFatherSon, Harlots, Sick Note). For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organization each year. But now he’s dead – and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Msamati), to take his father’s place. If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Dìrísù), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organization in London. It doesn’t end with the Wallaces though, there are shadowy higher powers at play. Promo

Interview with Alan Silva

TV Interview!

Alan Silva performers on "America's Got Talent"

Interview with Alan Silva of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC by Suzanne 9/19/20

This was such a fun interview with Alan! He’s got a lot of personality and talent. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. I’m so excited to watch Tuesday’s show to see who wins…

Here is the audio version of it.

Suzanne: Hi, Alan. How are you?

Alan: Hi, I’m doing great. How are you?

Suzanne: Good. Good. You’ve been rehearsing?

Alan: Yes, I’ve been rehearsing and practicing and creating. It’s been kind of like a roller coaster right now.

Suzanne: Well, congratulations on advancing to the finale.

Alan: Thank you. Thank you very much. It’s really exciting.

Suzanne: Sure. Did you go out and celebrate?

Alan: No, we didn’t have much time to celebrate. I think we’re going to have to just maybe have a big celebration when everything is finished, for sure.

Suzanne: And you must have something pretty big planned for the finale?

Alan: Yeah. I mean, we have to step it up, for sure. And I’ve been trying to always be creative and come up with something exciting and something different. So, my plan is to do something different again. Hopefully I can impress everyone.

Suzanne: Yeah, I’m sure everybody’s looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve.

Alan: I think that’s what I what I see most of the time. People are like, “I can’t wait to watch what you’re going to come up with next for your next performance.” So, I think people have the expectation already to see something different. So, I’m excited.

Suzanne: Yeah. And among the other contestants, who do you think is your greatest competition?

Alan: Oh, my gosh, that’s a great question, because, for me, I think all of them are my greatest competition. I mean, we’re all different in different talents. Everybody’s so talented, but we’re all different. Now we have, for example, the Bellow Sisters. They are more in my field, which is the performance, acrobatic arts. They are competition for me. Then, we have the other people. They’re not categorized in that category, but we have the BAD Salsa; they’re great dancers, and so dynamic. Then, we have the singers. We have Roberta [Battaglia]; it’s so amazing to hear her sing, and she’s so young to have that voice and that talent. Then, we have Daneliya [Tuleshova], and we have Cristina Rae. You have so many people – Brandon Leake. You know, for me, literally all of them are a huge competition for me. But, you know, at the end of the day, I think [I am] my own big competition. I’m competing against myself and trying to be better than I was last time, basically.

Suzanne: So, now that you’ve been on the show for a while, what has surprised you the most?

Alan: Well, I did have some surprises with people that actually ended up going home who I didn’t think were going home. That was, I think, for me, one of the biggest surprises that I had in terms of results. At this point, I don’t think anything surprises me anymore, because everyone’s game at this point. Everyone made it to the finals, so I can’t really tell if there is one exact thing for me that is a big surprise.

Suzanne: Okay, and besides not falling or hitting those spikes, what was your biggest challenge so far?

Alan: Oh, my gosh, every time it’s been a big challenge, especially in the quarter finals when I had so much trouble with with the weather and being wet, trying not to slip and fall. That was really stressful at the moment. I think, for me, right now, one of the biggest challenges that I’m having, is that I injured my shoulder. So, to be able to deliver a great performance for the finals with an injured shoulder, that, for now, is my biggest challenge.

Suzanne: Wow, yeah. Do they have a doctor there? Do they have somebody who can help you out?

Alan: Yeah, I mean, we have everybody here that can help us out, but it’s just because of one of the movements that I did. Basically, I pulled my muscle, my shoulder, like the ligaments. So, there’s not really much that they can do for that, just try to rest, and it will heal itself, but that means if I rest, I’m not going to be prepared for the finals. So, I decided to push forward and keep going, trying to be as safe as possible.

Suzanne: Sure. Now what precautions have they taken to minimize everyone’s risk to the Coronavirus?

Alan: Oh my gosh, this is huge; the precautions they took are really big. They’re really serious about that. Yeah, we have to be wearing a mask all the time. We’re actually tested every other day for COVID. They want to make sure that everyone is safe, keeping the social distancing at all times, even when we have to be transported; it’s like 1% of the time in the car and things like that. So, they’re being [careful] with the food and everything. It’s sealed. They’re being super, super, super cautious about everything.

Suzanne: Good. You’re filming in LA, right?

Alan: I am in LA, yes. We even have to be quarantined; we’re not allowed to go anywhere.

Suzanne: Oh, wow.

Alan: Yeah, they’re trying to create this protective bubble.

Suzanne: That’s good though. Do they put you up in a hotel and provide all of your meals and that kind of thing?

Alan: Yeah, they take really good care of us. We are in a beautiful hotel, and we are not far from the studio, so it’s easy to go for practice and during shooting days and all of that. It’s beautiful. The way they do everything is really high level. We are treated like superstars.

Suzanne: You had a brother that competed in an earlier season. Were they put up in the same place, or was it different? I read that you had a brother or some relative that competed in an earlier season?

Alan: Oh, yes. It was my brother, who was Alfredo from the games. He competed on season eleven.

Suzanne: Did they put him up in the same place? Or do you know?

Alan: I don’t think it was the same place.

Publicist: I can answer that. It wasn’t the same place, because we were at the Dolby Theatre at the time, but now, due to COVID, we’ve moved the production to Universal Studios.

Alan: Exactly.

Suzanne: Oh, so it was a different hotel. I was just curious.

Publicist: Different parts of town. We’re in Universal Studios right now, and the Dolby Theater is in Hollywood.

Suzanne: Okay. And how many hours a day do you practice normally?

Alan: Well, for the last two days, I practiced from three until ten – three in the afternoon until ten at night.

Suzanne: Wow.

Alan: Yes. [laughs] It’s a lot of work. People sometimes don’t think that. I guess they think I just go out there and fly. [laughs]

Suzanne: And you live in Las Vegas, right?

Alan: Yes, I do. I live in Vegas.

Suzanne: So, you must be glad to get away from the temperatures there a little bit.

Alan: Right, because it’s so hot. It was like 118 before I left Vegas. I don’t know what the weather is like now, but it’s been pretty warm here too. I mean, it’s very similar, and I kind of like it; it’s like the summery [months].

Suzanne: That’s good. My sister lives in Vegas, and I think she said it was going to be around 100, so I guess it’s come down a little bit.

Alan: It’s so funny. You can literally just like fry an egg on your windshield.

Suzanne: [laughs] I know. Their air conditioning went out for a few days, and they live in apartments, so they were just dying.

Alan: That’s the worst, right? That happened to me before. [laughs]

Suzanne: So, are you are you still performing in Vegas? If people go to Vegas, can they see you perform there?

Alan: No, they cannot, because when the whole COVID situation [started], the shows closed, and none of us have the jobs now.

Suzanne: Oh, they haven’t reopened the shows at all?

Alan: No, so I don’t have a job to go to now. I don’t have to work, so it was just perfect timing for me to be on AGT and eventually earn a spot. And that would be a dream come true, if I can have my own show in Vegas. That would be amazing.

Suzanne: Wow. I had no idea. I knew they’d opened the casinos up. I didn’t know they hadn’t opened the shows up. That’s interesting.

So, I read that you want to act. Do you have an agent yet for that?

Alan: I don’t have an agent yet. I did a couple of things in the past, acting-wise. I don’t know if I can talk about it, but I did (unintelligible) in 2007. But I would like to go that route, because it’s something that I really love. I’ve always been passionate for acting; it’s just opportunities didn’t come up. So, hopefully people can see me in a different light and it will open up more doors and opportunities.

Suzanne: Yeah, sure. I mean, if you win this, surely you’ll get some connections from that.

Alan: Right.

Suzanne: So, last question, what would you like to say to your fans out there?

Alan: For my fans, I just would like to say, I really appreciate all of them. I’ve been receiving so many messages of love from them and support. I really, really appreciate it. They think sometimes that we don’t read the messages, but we do get to read them. Sometimes we cannot reply to everyone, and I apologize, because it’s a lot of people to reply to, but I just want to tell them that, if anything, I just want to be able to inspire them and to just bring hope for them, and that they know that they can reach for the stars, that the sky’s the limit, and they can pursue their dreams and goals. I just hope that they see me up here, getting to the finals; I just hope that they look at me and say, “Hey, if he did it, I can also do it.”

Suzanne: Alright, well, thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to talk to me, especially on a Saturday.

Alan:
It’s okay. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you reaching out.

MORE INFO:

Alan’s Bio:  Alan J. Silva was born in Brazil. He comes from a long line of performers and is the sixth generation of circus performers in his family. He started performing at the age of 6. He trained in and performed many circus disciplines, including but not limited to Russian bar, clowning, tumbling and flying trapeze. It wasn’t until he was 16, though, that he found his true passion was aerial silks. Soon after mastering his craft, he traveled Brazil, performing as the first male artist to fly on aerial silks for circuses and festivals all over the country. Then in 2000, he had an opportunity to audition for his dream circus that only accepted the best of the best artists to be part of the company. However, it wouldn’t be for another two years that he’d be called to create a character and act for the show that would eventually open on the Las Vegas strip. Since 2003, Alan has called the USA home and is proud to have earned his citizenship in 2017. While working and living in Las Vegas, he met and married his wife, and they are now parents of two amazing young children that may follow in his foot steps

    20/20 Airing Friday, September 25, 2020 (9:01 PM-11:00 PM EST) Melanie McGuire Speaks Exclusively to ‘20/20’ Co-Anchor Amy Robach in First Television Interview After Being Sentenced to Life in Prison 13 Years Ago for Husband’s Murder
    “20/20” features the first on-camera interview with Melanie McGuire since she was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of her husband.
    In a new episode of “20/20,” co-anchor Amy Robach sits down for the first on-camera interview with Melanie McGuire since she was sentenced to life in prison 13 years ago in New Jersey for the murder of her husband, Bill McGuire. Authorities arrested McGuire, dubbed by the media as the “suitcase killer,” after Bill’s remains appeared inside multiple suitcases in the Chesapeake Bay. McGuire opens up to Robach about the murder and maintains her innocence. She describes a tumultuous relationship with Bill; her affair with a doctor whom she worked with, which prosecutors claimed motivated her to kill her husband; and what life in prison is like for her. She also tells Robach about her newfound hope that the explosive new podcast “Direct Appeal” could help exonerate her. The podcast, hosted by criminology professors Dr. Amy Schlosberg and Dr. Meghan Sacks, questions McGuire’s guilt and suggests there is evidence in the case that never received the legal scrutiny it deserves. McGuire also shares an emotional message to her sons, now young men, about what they should believe about her role in the murder. The two-hour “20/20” also features new interviews with Patricia Prezioso, the lead investigator and prosecutor in the case; Chris Henkle, a fisherman who found the first suitcase with Bill’s body; and Dr. Shlosberg and Dr. Sacks. It also includes the secretly recorded conversations during a police sting between McGuire and the doctor with whom she was having an affair. “20/20” airs Friday, Sept. 25 (9:01–11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
    “20/20” is anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach. David Sloan is senior executive producer. Matt Lombardi is senior producer and Sean Dooley and Jeff Schneider are producers of this episode.

    “48 Hours Suspicion” Examines “The Case Against Mary Katherine Higdon” Preview
    Higdon Tells David Begnaud: “I Loved Steven – and I Would Never Ever Do Anything to Hurt Him”
    Mary Katherine Higdon called 911 to report she had shot her boyfriend, Steven Freeman. It was all an accident, she told first responders. She said she was handing the gun to Freeman when it went off and that she didn’t know the weapon was chambered. When she talked with investigators at the police station, they say she confessed to murder. But there was a major problem – the audio on the tape where she allegedly confessed was impossible to hear due to a feedback hum.
    Correspondent David Begnaud and 48 HOURS SUSPICION report on what happened that night and the police investigation in “The Case Against Mary Katherine Higdon,” to be broadcast Wednesday, Sept. 23 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    “All I know is what’s in my heart,” Higdon tells Begnaud. “And I know what happened that night. … I loved Steven. And I would never ever do anything to hurt him.”
    It’s a case that rocked the small town of Griffin, Ga. Higdon and Freeman were high school sweethearts and were living together the night Freeman died. The investigation into what happened revealed a toxic relationship with allegations of abuse that left two families shattered. It’s also a case that raised many questions about what went wrong and who was at fault for the violence that erupted that summer night in 2018.
    “The gun going off … I don’t even see how, like, it even got him,” Higdon tells Begnaud. “Because I wasn’t even, like, really pointing it directly at him in the first place.”
    Investigators believed it was no accident. Prosecutor Kate Lenhard maintains the couple’s relationship was unraveling and Higdon shot Freeman out of anger. Prosecutors believed crime scene evidence and Higdon’s conflicting statements all led to a clear case of murder.
    At her trial, Higdon testified that although she didn’t know the gun had a bullet in the chamber, she had held the gun up that night because she was scared of Freeman. To the surprise of many in the courtroom, Higdon painted a picture of escalating abuse at the hands of Freeman. She read the jury multiple ugly, threatening text messages that Freeman sent to her a year prior to his death. She also testified that Freeman hit her and on two occasions raped her.
    The prosecution was not buying it. In her cross-examination, Lenhard confronted Higdon about never having complained about Steven’s alleged abuse.
    What would a jury decide?

    9/26/20 (Sa.) (10:00 PM) – A FARMER’S WIFE IS IMPALED ON A CORN RAKE – WAS IT AN ACCIDENT OR MURDER?
    “48 Hours” Investigates in “The Corn Rake Murder” Preview
    Correspondent Jim Axelrod and 48 HOURS investigate the strange death of Amy Mullis and the case against her husband Todd Mullis in “The Corn Rake Murder” to be broadcast Saturday, Sept. 26 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    Amy Mullis was found in a shed on her family’s Iowa farm with a corn rake sticking out of her back. The tool had four steel tines, but doctors who examined her found six puncture wounds. Police started investigating Mullis’ husband, Todd Mullis, after learning she was considering leaving him. However, Todd Mullis had an alibi – their 13-year-old son.
    It’s a case that shook a small Iowa farm community. The investigation revealed what had appeared to be a good marriage was actually one fractured by Amy’s affairs. A divorce could have split the family apart and could mean loss of the farm, which was worth millions.
    “Everyone knew Amy Mullis,” says Dina Nesheiwat, a legal expert hired by 48 HOURS to look at the defense’s case. “You know, she was … very bubbly, outgoing. … All of a sudden one day she’s dead.”
    So what happened?
    “This is not a long-distance gunshot,” says Matthew Troiano, a legal expert hired by 48 HOURS to look at the prosecution’s case. “This is up close and personal.”
    Todd Mullis told investigators that he didn’t know what happened and that he assumed she fell on the corn rake. His son told police he was with his father working in the hog barn when Amy was injured. But the number of puncture wounds, combined with the couple’s marital problems, led investigators to think otherwise. Todd Mullis was arrested and charged with Amy’s murder. In September 2019, Todd Mullis went on trial and 48 HOURS examines the dramatic outcome.
    48 HOURS: “The Corn Rake Murder” is produced by Betsy Shuller, Lisa Freed and Lauren Clark. Marc Goldbaum is the development producer. Kat Teurfs is the field producer. Gary Winter, Greg Kaplan, Michael McHugh and Diana Modica are the editors. Peter Schweitzer is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

ABC News and ESPN correspondent Ryan Smith reports the latest details and legal developments, including lingering questions about what happened to Wright.
    Smith also sat down for new interviews with Deborah Marion, Wright’s mother, whose tireless fight for justice may finally pay off, and Kelvin Cowans, a journalist who dated Wright-Robinson after the murder and wrote a tell-all book. The two-hour program also includes rare and exclusive audio of an interview Wright-Robinson gave to a local reporter, during which she claims she based the novel she wrote on Wright and their relationship. “20/20” airs Friday, Sept. 18 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Shrek and Princess Fiona return from their honeymoon to find an invitation to visit Fiona’s parents, the King and Queen of the Kingdom of Far, Far Away. With Donkey along for the ride, the newlyweds set off. All of the citizens of Far, Far Away turn out to greet their returning Princess, and her parents happily anticipate the homecoming of their daughter and her new Prince. But no one could have prepared them for the sight of their new son-in-law, not to mention how much their little girl had changed. Little did Shrek and Fiona know that their marriage had foiled all of her father’s plans for her future–and his own. Now the King must enlist the help of a powerful Fairy Godmother, the handsome Prince Charming and that famed ogre killer Puss In Boots to put right his version of happily ever after.
    SHREK THE THIRD – Saturday, September 19 at 5:00pm ET/PT
    Being king isn’t for everyone–especially if you’re a prickly ogre who smells like the shallow end of a swamp. When Shrek married Fiona, the last thing he wanted was to rule Far Far Away, but when his frogger-in-law, King Harold, suddenly croaks, Shrek is quickly fitted for the crown. Now, unless the reluctant would-be king can find a suitable replacement, he’ll be royally screwed for the rest of his days. As if Shrek didn’t have enough on his plate, Princess Fiona has another little surprise on the way. With his head spinning and his belly in knots, Shrek sets off on a quest to find the only other possible heir to the throne, Fiona’s long-lost cousin Artie, an underachieving medieval high schooler. While the ogre is away, his old nemesis Prince Charming rears his handsome head and returns to the kingdom of Far Far Away with redemption on his shallow little mind. Even with Donkey and the ever-so-suave Puss-in-Boots by their side, it’s going to take an ogre-sized effort–and a whole lot of help from Fiona and her band of princesses–for Shrek and Artie to save the day and find their own “Happily Ever After.”
    SHREK FOREVER AFTER – Saturday, September 19 at 7:00pm ET/PT
    Long-settled into married life and fully domesticated, Shrek begins to long for the days when he felt like a real ogre. Duped into signing a contract with devious Rumpelstiltskin, he finds himself in an alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin rules, and he and Fiona have never met. Shrek must find a way out of the contract to restore his world and reclaim his true love.

Primetime DVD Review: We Bare Bears – The Movie

DVD Review!

We Bare Bears, The Movie DVD cover

 

“We Bare Bears: The Movie” Review by Suzanne 9/12/20

I had never seen or heard of this Cartoon Network series before. I have no idea if the movie is comparable or not, but it’s a fun movie that people of all ages can enjoy. Unlike many Cartoon Network shows, it doesn’t have violence, bad language, etc. It’s a cute show about some bears who are friends and hang out together as brothers. One is a grizzly, one is a panda, and one is a polar bear. It ran for four seasons until last year. I’m glad they were able to make this movie. I hope it’s successful and that they can make more. The series was based on a web series and the TV show is an international series.

The three bears, Grizz, Panda and Ice, are bears that try to live in San Francisco along with humans.  In this movie, we see how they first got together when they were very young bears.  When the bears rush through the city, knocking people and things over, they get humans angry at them. One of the things that the bears do is “stack,” i.e. stand on top of one another, which humans find to be strange.  An evil wild life control agent named Trout wants to separate them and them back to the wild (voiced by Marc Evan Jackson, who played the evil Shawn in “The Good Place”), so the bears go on the run. It’s a good story and has many characters, including their friend, Officer Murphy, the park ranger. You may also recognize the famous voices of Ellie Kemper, Jason Lee, and Patton Oswalt.

This would make a great present for anyone who enjoys animated shows (especially children). The DVD has a lot of great extras for those who are really into these characters. Check them out below!

Primetime DVD Review: Bull – Season 4

DVD Review!

Bull: Season 4 DVD cover

“Bull: Season 4” Review by Suzanne 9/12/20

I don’t normally watch this show, but I love Michael Weatherly (who plays the title role). The rest of the cast is good, too. I think they’ve really improved it a lot since the first season, when I saw a few episodes and wasn’t thrilled with it. Sometimes it takes a while for a show to really build what it’s going to be.

A lot happens this season as Bull prepares for father hood with his ex-wife, Izzy (Yara Martinez) and has to make up with her brother, Benny (Freddy Rodriguez).  Benny is his main lawyer, and he can’t win trials without him. The two had a falling out in the previous season.

The writers keep the show exciting with many interesting cases, and there is also a lot of humor and fun dialogue between the characters (when the show is not being heavily dramatic).  Their cases vary between murder, wrongful death, fraud, assault, negligence and more. I like that this show focuses on the jury and voir dire. So few legal shows do.

Anyone who enjoys drama should like the show. Like most series this year, it was cut short due to COVID, so there are only 20 episodes instead of 22. That’s still a lot of great TV episodes to watch, but it means that the final episode was not meant to be the final episode. There is no cliffhanger or any kind of feeling that it’s the last episode of the season.

There are only two main features. They have audio commentary on two of the episodes, and a “behind the scenes” feature about the season. It’s done well, despite the fact that many of the actors were obviously being filmed via remote camera.

One thing I always appreciate about CBS videos is that they have the “Play All” choice, which makes it easier to go through all of the episodes. Also, they have the extras on the last DVD rather than making you have to go through all of the discs to find them.

MORE INFORMATION:

Coming to your home screen this September are two hit TV shows from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

Action-packed crime drama Magnum P.I.: Season Two will be arriving on DVD this year on  September 1. Starring Jay Hernandez as Tom Magnum, an American hero and Navy SEAL returning from war who uses his military skills to become a private investigator in Oahu, Hawaii.

Dr. Jason Bull and his psychological tricks are back again when Bull: Season Four arrives on DVD on September 8. Starring Michael Weatherly, Dr. Bull uses his psychological skills and high-tech data to persuade the jury, witnesses, attorneys. His sharp-witted charm and tactics leaves clients uneasy, that is until they are proven not guilty and walk out the courtroom free.

Bull: Season Four
Street Date: September 8, 2020
Format: DVD
Description: BULL stars Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason Bull in a drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial-consulting firms of all time. Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. His personal life proves harder to manage as he tries to live a healthier lifestyle following a heart attack and learns he is expecting a child with his ex-wife. Bull employs an enviable team of experts at Trial Analysis Corporation to shape successful narratives down to the very last detail. This includes his quick-witted former brother-in-law, Benny Colón, a lawyer who acts as defense attorney in the company’s mock trials; Marissa Morgan, a neurolinguistics expert from the Department of Homeland Security who monitors shifting jury reactions in real-time for Bull; former NYPD detective Danny James, the firm’s tough but relatable investigator; Taylor Rentzel, a working mother and former colleague of Marissa’s who is an expert in coding and computer hacking; and Chunk Palmer, a former all-American lineman and stylist-turned-law student who helps clients prepare their look and testimony for trial. In high-stakes trials, Bull’s combination of remarkable insight into human nature, three Ph.D.’s and a top-notch staff creates winning strategies that tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor.

Interview with Rico Torres

TV Interview!

actor Rico Torres

Interview with Rico Torres of “Ballers” on HBO and “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” on Showtime by Suzanne 8/3/20

This was a fun interview. Rico has a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and we got along very well. I think he’ll have big success in the future. If he doesn’t, it sure won’t be for lack of trying.

Here is the audio version of it.

Suzanne: I’m sorry to hear that you were bullied in high school. I was bullied in elementary and junior high, so I know how you feel.

Rico: Yeah, it was junior high; it was middle school and high school. I mean, that is the toughest time for any kid. You think the world is going to end. You think it’s literally – like, yeah, it’s insane. Because now after, you know, you graduated, none of that matters. None of that matters, right? I went through this entire journey and I never, never told anybody. You know, I never told my parents; I never told my brothers. I remember coming home one day actually, I think this was like in eighth or ninth grade, my black eye, my face was just tore up. And I told my parents, you know, I ran into a door. I remember that so vividly. And I actually got beat up. And yeah, I mean, you know, my middle and high school, I was bullied, because I had asthma, because I had anorexia. And what made matters worse, was, I guess, I was born – I hate saying this, because I hate being cocky and stuff, but I’m not I’m not ugly. You know?

So, I guess a lot of girls were attracted to me, and that just made matters worse, because a lot of guys would get mad, so mad, because I had all these different things. You already know. One thing led to another, and it was just so awful. And for so many years, I fell into such a like depressive, anxious – it was for years years, and I kind of I guess I played video games to get my mind off of things. And I tell the story all the time. I remember only eating like one or two (meal tickets?) a day. And I guess I wasn’t even aware that I even had anorexia, because I was getting bullied. You know what I mean? (Unintelligible), my dad was never home, this and that, this thing will kill somebody. It’s going to make somebody commit suicide.

But it wasn’t until, you know, one day I remember, I literally just stared at myself in the mirror for like an hour. And I literally said – because after, you know, countless meetings with the doctor and I was like, “Yo, problem, man,” and I never took any of the medications, and then my mom would try to feed me more, but I said “no,” and I just simply wasn’t aware of it. When I’d stare at myself in the mirror, and I said, “Yo, problem,” that’s when everything changed. I’m like, I’ve been bullied, I keep denying the help from my parents, the doctors. That was the solution to everything, admitting to myself that I have a problem. And after that, I mean, then I reached out for help. I’m was like, “Mom, please send me anything,” whatever. And then my brother I get from the time I was working out, I’m like, “Please show me anything. I can’t I can’t keep this up.” And then one thing led to another, and then I gained confidence from working out, from eating, and the rest is history. I broke out of that. I broke out of that.

Suzanne: Yeah, that’s tough. And I think boys can be bullied a lot worse than girls. I mean, girls can be bullied for sure, and girls are mean and catty and all that, but the physical stuff i think is more of a boys thing. You know, it’s much worse.

Rico: Agreed. It’s horrible.

Suzanne: Yeah, I lucked out, because I went from sort of a ghetto school in middle school, or junior high, they called it back there, to a nice – I was in a foster home, so I got into a nice foster home in a really nice area where the kids didn’t do stuff like that. So, I was lucky. I was still a total geek, and they probably talked about me behind my back, but nobody punched me or beat me up or anything, but I know how you feel, up to a certain extent, obviously. But you turned your life around. That’s good that you were able to do that. It was good that you were able to turn your life around like that.

Rico: Oh, yeah. Oh, man, to be honest with you, as we’re talking about all this, and as I, you know, sit here and think about everything that’s happened in my life, I don’t regret anything. I sit here and I’m smiling; I’m telling you I’m not even lying, because all that really shaped me to who I am today. I mean, I don’t know if you read it, but I went to school, I went to college for pre med. I was following this doctor route kind of like for years and years and years. And I crossed off all these items off the checklist, you know, like (unintelligible), medical missions trips, shadowing doctors, this and that, and I mean, next thing you know, I don’t know, like senior year of college, I just know I broke out again, just continuously breaking out of like this paradigm that we’re all raised to believe in. And because, for years, I followed that, and then I guess I got into modeling, because I’m like, I can make money off of this; everybody always told me.

I got into that, you know, and one thing led to another. A modeling agent, I guess, who was also part talent agent, got me an audition. I’m like, “What is that?” And I went to it, and I did awful. But then I guess I got a callback and I’m like, “What is that?” I’m like, I’ve got take this seriously. They gave me the numbers. They’re like, “If you get this, this is a lead role for a feature film. If you get this, you know, you get $900 a day for 15 days,” and I’m like, “That’s $15,000 in two weeks? That’s crazy.” Yeah.

So, then I actually tried really hard. I got into the room with two producers. And, I mean, long story short, I didn’t get it, but, I mean, for the Cruises (?) to literally say, “I love your style,” that’s crazy. And they kind of opened my eyes to the whole new world. And I’m like, medicine, I don’t even like it. I was going with traditional medicine, and I’m into holistics. I hate the whole traditional medicine, because the pharmaceutical industry is killing the entire world. I mean, the US, because that’s the most profitable industry in the US. So, I mean, I was just following, I don’t know, it’s crazy. I don’t know how to explain it.

Suzanne: No, it makes sense. It totally makes sense now, how you went from being wanting to be a doctor to be an actor. At first, I thought, how did that happen? But no, the way you explained it makes perfect sense. You didn’t really have your heart in the doctor thing, and then you started the modeling, and then that led to the acting, and now that makes a lot of sense.

Rico: And then the app thing led to just like, entrepreneurial ventures. And then next thing, you know, my book is being published September 1st, because I actually love writing. Who would have thought? Like if I’d never broke out of that, you know, pre med just doctor doctor doctor doctor, I’d have never found out what I actually truly like to do and what I’m actually truly talented talented in. Oh, that’s crazy.

Suzanne: Well, I didn’t know that you can write. What was the book that you wrote?

Rico: Oh yeah, it’s about “Know your norms.” So, basically, I mean, it just talks about social norms. It talks about it from from the moment you’re born, to the moment you kind of die. So, it’s like all that in between, and it starts from the very beginning. I incorporate some of my personal life experiences in there, because I believe that storytelling changes the world. So, I incorporate some of my own stories, you know, the anorexia – I was I was born into the color blue, because I’m a boy. Like, girls are born to the color pink. Girls are given toys; boys are given guns and cars. You know what I mean? Since are born, we are being tricked. And it’s that paradigm that I’m talking about. We’re being tricked into just following these rules made by society. And that’s why like 1% of the world are quote, unquote, aware of all of this and like 99% aren’t, and they simply just follow that entire, you know, playbook that’s given them for their entire life, and they don’t realize or find out about, you know, anything else in the world. So, I mean, I’m so excited about this book that I made. It truly came from the heart. I love it. I was like, this is crazy. Hopefully, it opens up so many other people’s eyes and minds like it did to me. I mean, I just try to make people aware.

Suzanne: Can we buy that on Amazon? Is it on there?

Rico: Absolutely. We publish a lot of places. Because this is my first book. I’m so publishing everywhere. Hopefully, you know, my second or third book, which I’m actually already working on my second book, hopefully, you know, when my second or third book, I actually, you know, get a literary agent and the traditional publishing and etc, etc. I’m used to the whole game. So, I was looking at it like, oh –

Suzanne: Well, it sounds it sounds really good. You know, I agree with what you’re saying, because, obviously, we all know, to a certain extent, that the whole thing about school is not just there to inform you, it’s there to mold you to be a good citizen. And your parents try to do the same thing. But one thing I’ve always thought is that people don’t plan their lives they do like you said, whatever their parents tell them, the schools tell them, and we’re all told, you must get a good job. You must go to college, you must get married, you must have kids, all that stuff, and few people question it. And then, if something terrible happens, like a divorce, they’re completely thrown, because they never considered it. And we put all this thought and money into the wedding, but nobody really talks about the marriage or whether you should have kids and all that stuff. So yeah, I totally see what you’re saying. I’ve always thought that.

Rico: And then like exactly what you’re saying, then if you go even more in depth, it’s literally just years and years and years of your life just wasted, just trying to follow your parents’ expectations or society’s expectations. And then you’re trapped, and then you become unhappy and it’s like no, do what you love, and that’s it.

Suzanne: And it causes things like anorexia, with society always telling us we have to be skinny to be beautiful.

Rico: Oh, yeah. There’s so many. Oh, and I feel so strongly about mental health, especially because of social media. I hate it. Oh, man. Oh, man, living here in LA. I’ve only lived here like, a little under two years. I’ve already been exposed to all of the type of people that are just crazy about their image. And I’m like, “What are you doing.” And then what they do when they post all this other stuff on Instagram and whatnot, they’re just, you know, the average person or the average Joe, the normal person who really doesn’t get exposed to all this you know, in LA or Hollywood, Atlanta (?) or whatnot. They see that and then they believe that to be true; they believe that that’s what you need to be successful. They believe that you need to look a certain way. And they just use square[screw?] everybodys lined up, man.

Suzanne: Right. That’s true. Yeah, my sister-in-law and her husband are from LA and they lived there a while, and it was all about you have to you have to put up – and she wasn’t even an actress for very long. But you have to put on this show for people you have to always look perfect, and you have to be seen, and I was like, “What?” I thought it was crazy. So, I know what you’re saying. And then everybody there is just pressured to do that, and, you know, it’s crazy.

Rico: Yeah, and while I’m still, you know, honestly, why I’m still here and why I’m still, you know, striving to do all these things in TV and film, and I guess, in the realm of Hollywood is because well, first of all, I needed a break. Somebody in your family has to break out. Somebody has to break out of that, you know, generational norm because, you know, you need to build that generational wealth and my entire family’s core, and core as in financially and core, you know, inside…I was going to say, it’s kind of like how Tupac’s dead – you know who Tupac is, right? Tupac Shakur. Yeah, I don’t know, I just love his message. I love everything that he’s ever – aside from that whole gang stuff, gang related stuff, I don’t approve of that. But like, I love hearing people’s misfortunes, but to have Tupac, and how he broke out of that, and how he’s so intellectual and he just wanted to inspire and spark someone’s brain to kind of do exactly, not exactly the same, but, you get what I’m saying right? I can’t explain it right.

Suzanne: Yeah. No, it’s all right; I understand. So, were you in drama at all in high school or you didn’t do anything like that?

Rico: Absolutely not. That’s why I love it, there is no there are no rules. I’m not big. I’m not an A-List or anything like that, but in under two years, I’ve already been, you know, featured in some of these big productions. I may not have had a leading role or anything like that, but I still landed something in these huge productions. And I’m still getting massive auditions, getting all this recognition and stuff. I’ve never taken an acting class in my life. So, like people go through all this schooling and stuff, and all I mean, there are no rules. You set your own rules.

Suzanne: Well, I wasn’t thinking so much training. It’s just it’s a lot of fun in high school. I did drama in high school.

Rico: Yeah, I’ve heard I’ve heard Yeah, yeah, I missed out on that. I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun.

Suzanne: It is a lot of fun.

Rico: Like the improv side of stuff, yeah, I would have loved to do all that.

Suzanne: So, you’ve never done any stage plays or anything like that, just TV and movies?

Rico: Yep.

Suzanne: Oh, cool. Well, you might one day, right? You might do a play or something.

Rico: Anything is possible; I might do everything. Absolutely. I’m actually taking vocal classes. So, I’m bilingual; I’m Colombian, and I really like Latin music. So, I’m trying to get into that.

Suzanne: Cool.

Rico: Not into the industry; I hate the industry. Well, like you said, for fun.

Suzanne: For fun, yeah, right. And, you know, since you’re smart and you like to write, you might, who knows, you might write a play one day or a screenplay.

Rico: Oh, I already wrote one.

Suzanne: Oh, good. I figured, right?

Rico:  I wrote a screenplay for a trilogy. I don’t know how to get that to distribution. I don’t know how to get that to the right eyes. I don’t know anything. I’m kind of like learning as I go. But yeah, it was amazing. I would love to see that actually come to fruition. Kind of like “Rocky,” kind of like Sylvester Stallone, how he wrote “Rocky,” that’s kind of like what I’m trying to do with my screenplay.

Suzanne: Cool. So what would you say is your biggest role so far?

Rico: I would say the one from “Ballers,” but I just –

Suzanne:  Sorry, is that a tough question?

Rico: Yeah, it is, because it was such a small role. So it’s like, ah, it sucks.

Suzanne: That’s all right. That’s okay. That’s fine. That’s an honest answer.

Rico: I mean, I‘ve only been at this for a year and a half. I want a lot more than just, you know, two or three scenes.

Suzanne: Yeah, well, you just gotta give it time. You’ll you’ll get there. It’s good that you’re proud of what you’ve done so far. That’s good. I think a lot of people fail because of lack of confidence, so that’s good.

Rico: Yeah, exactly. I’m not afraid to take on you know, under five roles. I’m not even afraid to be an extra. I did that, you know, all first coming out here. I did extra, extra, extra, extra extra. A lot of people don’t care about that, but like, no, I mean, Tiffani Haddish was an extra. I mean, Sylvester Stallone was an extra. I mean, they did a lot of extra stuff.

Suzanne: Yeah, that’s how they get started.

The IMDb says that you’re in a film called “LA Rush.” Do you know when when that’ll come out?

Rico: Who knows. I did that in the very beginning. It’s already been like a year and a half, two years. I don’t know why that’s still in production.

Suzanne: Well, maybe the pandemic affected it.

Rico: This Covid, man, it takes me so many of my projects that I’m hopefully going to be in.

Suzanne: Yeah, we’re all in the same boat on that, I think, especially people who have projects going in Hollywood.

Do you have anything else that you were working on before the pandemic hit, like shows or auditions or whatever?

Rico:  Oh, a bunch of them. I had like, three or four and then like a bunch of auditions and stuff, but everything is just being delayed. I mean, series, pilots, like this and that. I don’t know if they don’t even want me anymore. It’s crazy. I don’t know. I don’t know anything. I understand; I understand.

Suzanne: Ask your agent about the soap operas, because they’re all going back in production now. They’re they started before any of the other shows.

Rico: Soap Operas?

Suzanne: Yeah, daytime soaps.

Rico: My agent sucks. I don’t ever go out for anything in Spanish. I’m kidding. I’m learning; I’m going. I’ve been through, in a matter of a year and a half, I’ve been through like three managers, three agents, this and that. And it’s like, and it’s not because of me. It’s not because of me because, you know, I’m just trying to get work. I’m like, “Hey, you know, anything that you need, let me know. I’ll go on five auditions every single day. Let’s go.” You know what I mean?

Some of them don’t get back to me. And I’m like, come on. Like, really? I’m just trying to work. I’m trying to make you money.

Suzanne: Yeah. I don’t know how some people get their jobs.

Rico: So, I mean, yeah, I’m just taking it slow. You know, something will come up. I mean, with that, with commercials, with modeling, I have so many things, so many routes, so many seeds planted. It’s like, one of them’s going to blow up, you know?

Suzanne: So, what have you been working on for the past four months besides writing? Anything else? I’m sure you must.

Rico: Yeah, I love to write. I have a couple businesses. I’m developing an app, but that’s going to take some time.

I’m in the process of creating actually a men’s cosmetics line. Again, that’s going to take several months so, what else? Yeah, I’d have to look at all my stuff, but a lot of stuff. I mean, everything is especially like, pending, like how can I even talk about it.

Suzanne: What we’ve been doing just to relax or have fun?

Rico: I just work every day. No, I go to the gym every day, take my mind off of things. I meditate, you know, 30 minutes before I go to sleep and 30 minutes after I wake up, to keep my mind sane from all this stuff, especially because I came out here alone. I left everybody and everything over there in Florida. So, I’ve been at this alone, and sometimes it gets to me, and then especially when you’re single. I just feel like everybody here has the worst intentions possible, and it kind of messes with you mentally. I keep myself sane by working out, and – oOh sorry go ahead.

Suzanne: I was just going to say, you got therapy before to help you with the depression, anxiety and anorexia, did they also teach you how to eat right and all that kind of thing?

Rico: I did not follow. I’ve always had a problem of following directions in order. I don’t know why, I mean, I don’t want to some stubborn, but I just learned things on my own. I mean, asked for help, but on my own terms. I don’t know. It’s so weird. It’s so weird, do I sound bad saying all this?

Suzanne: No, no, no. You have your opinions and you have confidence. That’s good.

Rico: Yeah. So, I mean, for example, like, you know, like doctors were telling me this. I mean, it’s because I’ve been diagnosed incorrectly. And then I hear stories of other people being diagnosed incorrectly and given wrong medications, and this, this, and that, and how corrupt everything and everyone is. And it’s like, oh my God, so, I do my own research. But the doctor tells me I have this, this, and that, and then I started doing my own research. I started looking at peer reviewed articles, I start looking at studies, I [would] actually go get the exams, expensive exams, to make sure if what they’re saying is true, and more than likely, it’s not. I mean, I’ve been through – I was (unintelligible) accident, you know, in 2015, and I had to have jaw surgery. Yeah, my whole mouth split open. He was just, I mean, I don’t even know how my life today. But yeah, I actually had jaw surgery. And my surgeon, I mean, he did a great job. You know, he put it back together, but he put it back together incorrectly. What else can go wrong? Right?

I mean, I just find this out what, three, four years later, and I have not stopped looking at myself in the mirror, you know, every single day, every single morning I look at myself and I see the bottom jaw is just all crooked. And I mean, yeah, I’m a confident human being, but it’s like, I look at that every day, you know, and then I have problems with my nose, and it’s because of that. So, I mean, I have to go to a doctor, like many, many, many doctors, and try to figure out what the heck is wrong with me. You know, if it’s neurological or if there’s a nerve damage. And what about my jaw? You know, because it’s diameters off, and how do I correct that with all surgery, because surgery will just ruin you even more. Sorry, I’m ranting.

Suzanne: No, no, it’s fine.

Rico: I don’t even know what the point of me saying that was.

Suzanne: Well, you know, you made me forget now what I asked you, but that’s okay.

Do you have any advice for kids who are bullied or for kids who want to become actors?

Rico: So for the bully ones, you got to ask for help. I mean, if you’re being bullied, my advice would be to actually just sit down. I feel like people, kids, get away from your parents for a little bit, or your friends or whatever, just be alone for a little bit and actually just think about stuff, just think about what you’re doing, who you are, what’s happening around you, the bullying and all that. Because people are always with somebody, always with parents, so there’s always an opinion. There’s always a “I’m so scared to tell them I’m being bullied or whatnot.” But when you go by yourself – I’ve been by myself a lot. That’s how I’m aware of so many things. When you’re by yourself you think; you get into your thoughts a lot. The problem with that is you can’t be by yourself for too long, because that’s when you go crazy, right? That’s when somebody who’s not, you know, strong willed, strong minded, they’ll fall into a very bad, very bad state of mind. But take a week or two weeks or whatever, and actually just be by yourself. Go to the library by yourself and just think about what’s going on, and then and then admit it. You know, a lot of people don’t admit it. That’s the problem with America. You know, a lot of parents. They say to their kids, “You’re not fat; you’re big boned.” No, you’re fat. I’m sorry. I like the tough love. No, it’s true. Because that kid, their entire childhood is going to just go through their life thinking they’re just big boned. Right? And if they admit to themselves that they’re fat or overweight, that they’re obese, then you can do something about it, the first step in anything and any solution is admitting. Become aware that there’s a problem. Make or work towards finding a solution. But, yeah, to that I say, take some time to be alone, away from everybody and everything in all of society’s pressures and restrictions, and this, this, and that.

And then for the acting thing, I would never recommend a child to do this. It’s crazy. And I say that, because at least my children aren’t going to do it. I mean, at least until they’re 18, then they can do whatever they want. You know what I mean? Because, I mean, there’s a bunch of child actors that become – yeah. And the reason for that, I believe at least, is because they don’t go through, you know, a normal life. So, at like 12 or 14 or whatever, when they instantly become famous, when they instantly get access to all this money, they can get whatever they want. When they instantly get all this fame, you’re in the public eye. You can’t do anything, you know what I mean? You can’t do anything, and then like you’re out; you’re just trying to play basketball, right? And you know, you have all these pop rocks in here, whatnot. And you’re like, I can’t even have fun. So, you don’t even get the opportunity to live your life.

Suzanne: Yeah, I think it really depends on the parents they have, how normal they are, and also, the kid itself, you know, how they view what they’re doing? Yeah. Because I know some actors, they started age five, and then they go on to have a successful career, and they’re normal, but they probably had normal parents. I mean, by normal, you know, the parents supported them and let them make the decision about whether they wanted to do it and that kind of stuff. But the ones who have stage moms or whatever, it’s not so good.

Rico: Yeah, and that’s the thing though. If you’re a successful actor, celebrity, whatever, you have kids.

I mean, honestly, it all falls on the parents, because if you think we’re all right, and it’s kind of like what we were saying earlier, teach them. Teach them that a lot of the things in Hollywood are just fake. Teach them that a lot of that stuff does not matter. It’s meaningless. It’s just, a way of creating art, but then a lot of the things that follow that are just a lot of fakeness and this, this and that. And then, you know, if you teach them a certain way, and the reality, then you kind of teach them the normality and the enjoyment of life, of the little things. And teach them it’s about nature and trees and this isn’t that. I mean, I know that’s kind of like weird I even just – like, what are you talking about? But it will all make sense for the kid.

Suzanne: Yeah, they have to have a normal childhood, whether they’re acting or not.

Rico: Exactly. But, I mean, yeah, if somebody wanted to follow the acting route or whatever at whatever age, my advice is to not listen to anybody. Because I’ve only been at this a year and a half, or two years, and before my career even started – you know how I told you I was with like three managers, or three agents or whatever, how many times each and every single one of them have told me, “I’m going to end your career before it even starts. You don’t know how small the town is. You’re never going to get a job ever again.” I’m like, “Okay, wow, thanks for being so nice. I hope you have a better day.” I mean, no wonder. If you have a weak mind, you’re going to get destroyed in this industry. You’re going to get eaten alive. It’s crazy how all these people threaten you.

Suzanne: That’s sad. Well, I’m glad you were able to get past that and rise above those people.

Rico: Yeah, I’m still getting through it. There’re still millions of rejections and millions of people trying to threaten me. Whatever.

Suzanne: Yeah, no I understand. well I hope I hope that you can get into some – the I know a lot of the auditions now are through self tapes. So, hopefully you can do some of that. That would be good, instead of having to wait for the pandemic to be over.

Rico: Yeah, yep.

Suzanne: Yeah, well, I think the whole industry is waiting to see – whether they know it or not, they’re waiting to see what happens with the daytime soaps, because they’re the first ones to start back, and they’re utilizing all these different ways, between camera tricks, ways to be safe, and all those different things. So, if they can do it, then the rest of, you know, TV and movies can follow, hopefully.

Rico: Yeah. I’m so excited to get back to work. It’s so much fun creating art.

Suzanne: Well, I really appreciate you talking to me.

Rico: Oh, absolutely. I appreciate you talking to me.

Suzanne: And thanks for checking out my website. And we’re moving our site to TVMEG.COM, and we’ve already moved a lot over there. So, check it out. That’s where your interview will be.

Rico: Oh, cool, yeah, absolutely.

Suzanne: Great. Thank you.

Rico: Thank you so much. Have a great day.

Suzanne: You, too. Bye.

B&B logo

Recap written by Suzanne

Donna and Brooke continue to chat about Brooke’s upcoming trip to see Bridget in New York, and her reuniting with Ridge. Brooke is supposed to fly there on the Forrester private jet. Brooke feels a little bad about leaving, since they’ve finally patched things up. Donna suggests that she postpone her trip. Quinn’s name comes up, so they talk about how awful she is. Brooke is glad that Quinn didn’t get what she wanted. She hopes Quinn and Shauna realize there’s nothing they can do to get between her and Ridge ever again. Donna assures her that she’ll take care of all of everything while she’s away. Bridget calls to cancel the trip just as Brooke is about to leave. Brooke plans a big surprise for Ridge. At the Forrester Mansion, Shauna tries to get Ridge to remember that they got married in Vegas. She’s very happy and hopes he feels the same. He looks distressed. Quinn suggests leaving them alone, but Eric doesn’t move. Shauna shows Ridge that she has photos and a marriage license. Ridge tells her that he hates hurting her, but it was all fun and games. He’s still married to Brooke and was about to move back in with her. She tells him that he filed the divorce papers the night they were in Vegas. He and Eric look shocked. Quinn smiles wickedly the whole time.

Steffy walks into her living room, looking like she’s in pain. Thomas is there to surprise her and asks if he’s visiting too often. He’s working hard to make sure she forgives him. He brought her favorite ice cream — mint chocolate with marshmallows. She thanks him. He tells her that Douglas also loves that kind and that they shared some the other day at the Children’s Museum. He admires how amazing Douglas is, and he’s trying to make things right with him. When he mentions that Douglas is making her a great get well card, she worries about him knowing that she had such a terrible accident. Thomas admits that he didn’t want to lie to Douglas when he asked about her and Kelly, but he told him that she’s feeling better. He wants to spend time with Kelly when she wakes up.  He asks Steffy how she’s really feeling. He can tell that she’s in pain. She says she’s fine. He gets a little choked up thinking about how they could have lost her, but she reminds him that she’s here. She just didn’t expect to still be in so much pain. She’s down to one last pill. Thomas gets a text from Vinny, who needs his help, but he makes Steffy promise that she’ll get her prescription refilled as soon as he leaves. She phones Doctor Finn, who tells her that after she finishes her last pill, then she has to take a prescription strength ibuprofen. He offers to call it in for her. She promises to take some that she already has in her medicine cabinet, after getting the right dosage from him. He tells her that it was nice seeing her outside of the hospital. They flirt a little. She prepares to take her last pill.

Primetime DVD Review: The Good Doctor – Season Three

DVD Review!

The Good Doctor - Season Three DVD cover

“The Good Doctor – Season Three DVD cover” Review by Suzanne 8/10/20

I enjoyed watching all the episodes of this DVD. I don’t watch the show regularly, so I haven’t seen the first two years.  It was easy to watch, even though I missed all of those episodes.  It’s basically like any hospital show you’ve seen before, such as Grey’s  Anatomy, ER, Chicago Hope, Chicago Med, et al.  From what I’ve read, they’re very accurate with the medical scenes.  It’s mostly a soap opera with medical stories…a little bit like “General Hospital” used to be, before they brought in spies and mobsters.  If you buy the foremost conceit of the show, which is that a high-functioning autistic person (Freddie Highmore, who plays Shaun) could become a surgeon, and you don’t think the main character is irritating, then you’ll probably enjoy the show.

The show was developed by David Shore (“House” – another medical show), based upon a Korean series.  The stories are very good, and the acting is fabulous. Sure, some of the things that happen might be a little cliché.  For instance, every single medical show I’ve ever watched has a scene where some person is trapped under or beneath something, and they seem fine, but then the doctor discovers that if that thing holding them down is lifted, they’ll bleed out and die.  That happened in the two-part finale of this season.  The ending of the season, and that two-parter, was also pretty predictable.  Another story, about a main character dying, did surprise me, though.

In general, it’s very entertaining. Just don’t expect the stories to astound or shock you too much.  It’s worth watching, especially if you like hospital dramas, and it has some great actors, and some very attractive people. It’s not the best show on TV, though. It’s a good ensemble show.  Even though Highmore is the star, he has a large cast of talented actors to support him, including Hill Harper, Richard Schiff, Nicholas Gonzalez, Antonia Thomas, Christina Chang, Paige Spara, Fiona Gubelmann, Jasika Nicole and Will Yun Lee. They have some great guest-stars, too.

The DVD only has two features: a gag reel, and some deleted scenes. That’s pretty disappointing. Perhaps we can blame the scarce features on the Coronavirus.  The series wasn’t cut short for that, though. It has 20 episodes – 2 more than it had the first two seasons. It always ends in March. I was very grateful that they had great closed-captioning and that they had the “Play All Episodes” choice. Some DVD’s don’t do that, which I find annoying.  I hope that next time, they can come up with some better extras for the DVD set.

MORE INFORMATION:

THE GOOD DOCTOR SEASON 3

The on-duty manager makes it clear the woman doesn’t have “the right look.” When pressed, the manager admits she believes the woman is simply too old to work at the bar. How will customers react?

Primetime DVD Review: Batwoman – The Complete First Season on Blu-ray

DVD Review!


Batwoman - The Complete First Season Blu-ray cover

“Batwoman – The Complete First Season” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

This is a great comic book show, and a good entry into the “Arrowverse” (or whatever they’re calling the superhero shows on The CW now). I’ve enjoyed watching every episode each week. They do a great job with balancing the action and the character development, with a little bit of humor. At first, I tried to compare it with “Gotham,” but it’s a very different show. However, it does have certain qualities that are similar to that show.  It can be very twisted, bizarre and wacky at times (particularly the villains).

The season ending with some shockers – especially the reveal of Bruce Wayne’s lookalike. After the season ended, it was revealed that star Ruby Rose would not be returning as Kate Kane. This is a terrible disappointment because she did such a great job in the role.  She will definitely be missed. I hope that the person that replaces her as Batwoman (not as Kate Kane) will be just as good. I have to wonder how this will affect the rest of the show, which was built around Kate’s father, sister, enemies, girlfriends, etc.

The DVD is just as good as the series. I’m  reviewing the Blu-ray here.  There is a lack of extras, however. Perhaps that’s because of the pandemic? I don’t know. The only features are “The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2019” and deleted scenes. That sure isn’t enough. I hope that future versions (perhaps the complete set) will have a lot more than that.

Primetime DVD Review: NCIS: The Seventeenth Season

DVD Review!


NCIS: The Seventeenth Season DVD cover

“NCIS: The Seventeenth Season” Review by Suzanne 8/8/20

There’s a reason that NCIS is always at the top of the broadcast ratings chart.  It has solid stories and interesting characters.  The cast changes sometimes, but they always have other fun or interesting people to fill in their places.  Of course, Tony and Abby are greatly missed by the fans. Ziva is, too, but we see her a few times this season. It’s great to have her back. I wish Ducky wasn’t retired, but we still see him occasionally. Mark Harmon is getting up there, but he’s still a fine actor.

It’s the 17th season, but in some ways it seems like this show has been on for 25 years. I can barely remember before it started.  It’s a reliable series that shows us great drama as well as laughs and mystery.  You really can’t go wrong watching any episode of the show.  I used to watch it regularly, but I was watching too many shows, which made it hard to keep up, so I stopped watching all the NCIS series (among others).  It doesn’t matter, though, because you can start watching again any time and not feel like you missed anything. Maria Bello (Jack) and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick) are fine recent additions.   I’m glad that they added some more people of color, like Walderrama and Diona Reasonover (Kacie).  NCIS always changes with the times and keeps up on what’s new in the world – even though it’s audience is most likely to be seniors over 50, they do get a fair share of people 18-34 watching.

I really like the teasing romance between Gibbs and Jack. I hope they carry that further.  His friendship with the neighbor kid was also very heartwarming.  Nick and Eleanor (Emily Wickersham) also have a fun will-they-or-won’t-they kind of friendship. There was a lot of great action this season, too, of course.  You can easily watch this without having to “catch up” on previous seasons.

The extras are good. They have two episode-specific features and two main ones.  “Other Times. Other Lives” is about the episode “Epherema” in which they go through an old man’s letters and other things to learn the origin of a coin. The actors play the parts of the man and others in the 70’s, which is fun. It’s great to see them as other characters, and it’s clear they had fun with it.  “Hallowed Ground: The Arizona” is about the last episode of the season, “The Arizona.”  Christopher Lloyd plays an eccentric old guy who steals a couple’s purple heart (from their late daughter).  He wants to be buried among the dead at the Pearl Harbor monument. One of the things  that makes this episode interesting is how Gibbs makes him face what happened way back then. It wasn’t planned to be the series’ last episode of the season, but it worked out to be, due to the coronavirus.  There is a feature about the making of the season, and another one about Ziva’s return.  Make sure you watch the episodes first because the features will have spoilers.

This would make a great gift for anyone! Put it on your holiday gift list.

MORE INFORMATION:

NCIS: The Seventeenth Season

Format: DVD

Description: NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it’s a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities. Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; NCIS Special Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation; the charismatic, unpredictable and resilient NCIS Special Agent Nicholas “Nick” Torres, who has spent most of his career on solo undercover assignments; and NCIS Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane, who built her reputation as the agency’s premier forensic psychologist and enjoys challenging Gibbs. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.

Ridge and Brooke are very happy to be back together and working on their problems. He pledges to be there waiting for her when she comes back from her trip to visit Bridget. She invites him to come with her, but he has to be there for Steffy and the company. They plan to take a week or more off when she gets back, to celebrate. Later, Donna gives Brooke a toy truck to give to Logan. Donna can tell that Brooke’s mind is elsewhere, so Brooke tells her that Ridge has forgiven her. Donna is delighted to hear it.

Shaun phones Quinn. They chat about Shauna being back in L.A. Quinn invites her over, in part so that she can “accidentally” bump into Ridge. Eric comes home while they’re chatting on the phone, so Quinn explains that she was talking to Shauna. Eric thinks that Brooke and Ridge will get back together. Quinn doesn’t think so, and they discuss it. Ridge comes home and informs him that he’s moving back in with Brooke. Eric is happy and tells Quinn “I told you so.” Quinn has an attitude like she’s keeping a delicious secret. Shauna arrives and tells them that she had to return to her husband. She explains that she and Ridge were married the night that he was there with her in Vegas. She promises to be a loving and faithful wife to him, “until death do us part.”

Steffy and her new doctor, Finn, flirt with each other. He dropped some papers by her place. He jokes that he always wanted to be a country doctor that drops by people’s houses. He admits that he Googled her, and he’s very impressed with her. She demurs, saying that he’s the one saving lives. She makes a snack for Kelly while they chat. He takes a phone call, so she notices that he referred to himself as “Finn.” She chats about being a single parent, like it’s no big deal. It’s clear that he admires her even more. When he asks about Kelly’s father, she mentions Liam. He recognizes Liam from the big picture hanging on her wall, since he met him at the hospital. He also tells her that he found out that this wasn’t her first motorcycle crash, so he advises her not to ride it any more. As he leaves, he tells her to let him know if she needs anything else. He also asks if it’s okay to check on her sometimes, since she’s on his way home. She likes the idea. After he leaves, she has severe pain. She looks at the clock and realizes that it’s time to take more pain medication.

Recap written by Suzanne

Steffy is on the phone with Amelia, who’s running late. Steffy is obviously in great pain. She sits down and considers whether she should take more pain meds or not. Ridge calls to see how she’s doing. She tries to downplay how she is, but he can tell that she’s not being honest. He once again suggests she make sure to take her pain pills. He offers to come over there until Amelia gets there, but she tells him that the traffic is terrible. Dr. Finnegan phones to see how she’s doing. He asks if she’s followed up with her PCP, so she replies that she has an appointment later this week. He asks about her pain and reminds her that if she doesn’t take the pills on a regular schedule, then healing will take longer. Thomas drops by, bringing flowers and candy from his friend Vinnie. Thomas thinks that Vinnie might have a crush on her. Steffy confides that she doesn’t even remember the accident. She takes her pain medication, noting that she’s almost out. She’d hoped she wouldn’t need them any more before she needed to get a refill. Later, Thomas is on the phone – something about work. She tells him to go ahead and that her pain meds are kicking in. He tells her to call him if she needs anything. Dr. Finnegan drops by to bring her paperwork from the hospital. He’s embarrassed because his assistant was supposed to call Steffy and let her know. She was on a conference call and had her phone muted. He lives nearby, so he figured he could just bring them by. She tells him that it’s OK and that she’s getting better and better every day.

Flo and Wyatt are surprised to see Shauna show up. Shauna just wanted to check on Flo because of what has happened. She calls Wyatt and Flo “lovebirds” and Flo makes a joke about their having lots of sex. They catch up about what happened with Sally. Wyatt has to leave for work but tells them that they need to go out later to celebrate. Flo wonders if her mom is there for Ridge. Shauna tells her that Ridge gave her a ride home on his private jet, and then she took him on a tour of Vegas. Flo thinks there’s something more going on that Shauna isn’t telling her. Shauna just tells her that Ridge needed to take his mind off his problems, so she was there to help him do that. She couldn’t believe the crowds that he attracted. Shauna is disturbed to hear that Ridge spent the night at Shauna’s place. She asks if they slept together. Shauna brushes her questions off, saying that Las Vegas is her past. L.A. is her future. Meanwhile, Ridge is at Forrester, working, but he keeps having flashes of memory to what happened in Vegas. Brooke drops by and tells him that she’s leaving for a few days to go visit Bridget and Logan. She wants to visit with her daughter, who helped her when they were separated. She tells Ridge that she intends to work through their issues when she returns. She hopes they can be stronger than ever. Brooke goes on and on about their problems. When she mentions Shauna, Ridge has some more memories about being there in Vegas with her. Ridge talks about how he felt, seeing her kissing Bill. His faith in her was shattered. She understands and forgives him for running off. He agrees that they need to work on their relationship and spend the rest of their lives together. He promises to be waiting here for her.

Recap written by Suzanne

Steffy walks around her place, admiring the decorations that Hope and Liam put up for her homecoming, talking to Ridge. She moves and cries out in pain, so he urges her to take her medication. She claims that she’s fine. Thomas, now sporting a beard, drops by with flowers for her. He looks shaken up by what happened to her. Ridge leaves them alone to chat. Thomas tells his sister how much he loves her and was worried about her. Things seem to be good between them now and she thanks him for visiting. She asks how he’s doing. He admits that it’s been rough not seeing Douglad, but he knows that Hope and Liam are taking good care of him for now. He’s been in regular contact with Taylor, too. He thanks Ridge for all of his support as well. Ridge once again suggests to Steffy that she should take her pills, before he leaves. Thomas can tell that Steffy is in a lot more pain than she let on. Steffy tells him that the beard looks good. Thomas tells her that he’s been driving up and down the coast, staying here and there, but he stays close so he can visit Douglas. Steffy has another twinge of pain, so Thomas points out that she was in a serious accident. She should accept help and take medication. Later, Steffy is alone when she hears Kelly cry over the baby monitor. She takes some pain medication.  At Forrester, Donna and Brooke discuss Steffy’s accident. Donna wonders if this brought her and Ridge closer together, but Brooke says that it didn’t because Bill was there to admit that he hit Steffy with his car. Brooke really wants to get things back to normal with Ridge. Even though there is still distance between her and Ridge, she plans to keep trying with him. Ridge drops by, so they ask about Steffy. Ridge is just worried about her being in pain and not wanting to take her medication. Donna leaves them alone. Ridge tells Brooke that Thomas stopped by. Brooke lists all of the things that came between them, and she admits that she was partly responsible. He admits that, too. She says that she doesn’t want him to have any more drunken nights with Shauna, or anyone. As she says that, Ridge remembers some of his time kissing Shauna. Brooke concludes that they need to vow never to let anyone come between them ever again.

Back at the beach house, Wyatt and Flo, sitting on the couch, chat about dinner and decide to go back to having sex, like they were planning to do before Katie dropped by. They chat for a second about Katie and Sally. He still can’t believe what Sally did. They also decide not to talk about Sally any more. They have sex on the couch. He says that he won’t ever let her out of his sight again. Katie drops by Sally’s place to confront her. Sally admits what she did and feels very sorry. She deserves whatever Katie says to her. She admits that she did it because she couldn’t stand to lose Wyatt again to Flo. Katie asks if it was all planned, but Sally informs her that when she ran into her at the hospital, that was all by accident. She really was worried about her health at that point because of the symptoms she was having. After seeing how Katie cared about her, she realized she could get Wyatt to care for her, too. Katie feels like an idiot after being used by Sally. She yells at Sally for what she did, although she’s relieved that she’s not dying. Katie lays out all of the things she did for her and how she was manipulated. She says sarcastically that she hopes Sally is proud of herself. Sally says forlornly that she’s not proud at all — she’s deeply ashamed. She tells Katie how great of a friend she was and how badly she treated her. She tells her how sorry she is and hopes that one day she can forgive her. Katie suggests that she just take some time and get her life back on track. She advises her to first let go of her obsession with Wyatt.

Recap written by Suzanne

Liam and Hope have decorated Steffy’s home, with the help of Beth and Kelly, with balloons and more. They wonder how Steffy is doing. Hope offers to help take care of Kelly if Steffy needs it. Liam thinks that’s a great idea, but he figures that Steffy will just want to see Kelly when she gets home. Later, Hope tells him that the girls are sound asleep. She’s glad they were able to fix up the place for Steffy. They stocked the fridge for her and will be welcoming her home. They agree that it’s a miracle that Steffy didn’t get hurt worse in her accident (because she was wearing a helmet). They admire the beautiful flowers that Taylor sent. Liam tells Hope that Thomas was in contact with Douglas as well. At the hospital, Steffy tells Dr. Finnegan that she just wants to go home and see her daughter. Steffy asks if she can pick up Kelly, but the doctor cautions her against any kind of lifting or exertion. He asks about her pain. She claims it’s much better. The doctor can tell that she’s in more pain than she’s letting on. He advises her to take more medication if she needs it, so she can heal.  She doesn’t want to be in a fog when she’s with Kelly, but she agrees. Ridge arrives, ready to take Steffy home. The doctor tells Ridge that Steffy needs to take her medication so that she can heal properly. He tells Steffy that she shouldn’t do any lifting or driving, and that she should take a pill when she gets home. Ridge promises to make sure she does, and he thanks the doctor and staff for their help. Steffy and Ridge arrive at her home. She’s walking very stiffly but loves the decorations they made for her. After saying hello to Liam and Hope, she insists on going in to see Kelly, even though the girls are asleep. Ridge reminds Steffy to take her pain medication as the doctor ordered. Liam points out to Stefft what she’s gone through and insists she take the medication to give herself a break. She tries to argue, but she gives in. Hope looks worried.

Wyatt and Flo greet each other after sleeping together in the beach house. They decide not to think about Sally any more and plan to have more sex, but Katie shows up. She wonders where Sally is and why she texted her an apology. They fill Katie in on what’s been happening with Sally. Katie is relieved that Sally isn’t dying, but she’s very angry at her for lying to everyone and using her. Flo is obviously still very annoyed at Sally, whereas Wyatt is more sympathetic. He tells Katie that he couldn’t bring himself to press charges against Sally and Penny. After Katie leaves, Wyatt tells Flo how special she is to him. He gives her many compliments as they sit on the couch and smile lovingly at each other. Meanwhile, Sally sits alone in her apartment, looking glum and crying. Katie drops by. Sally doesn’t open the door when Katie knocks, so Katie opens it. She asks Sally, “How could you?”

Outside Sally’s room, Penny tells Flo that she’s not a bad person. Flo wonders if Penny is really as gullible as she pretends to be. However, Flo has some sympathy because she’s known people who can talk you into anything, even though it’s against your better judgment (like Reese). Flo goes in for a while to Sally’s room. Sally wants her to help talk Wyatt into forgiving her, but Flo says it’s his call. In Sally’s room, Sally begs Wyatt to forgive her. She says she’ll understand if he writes her off or puts her in jail. She keeps trying to explain why she did what she did, and how sorry she is. Wyatt says they won’t press charges, but he can’t be around her right now. He wants her to go off and find the talented, amazing woman that she used to be. He tells her goodbye in a very final way.

Brooke suggests to Ridge that he phone Taylor to let her know about Steffy’s accident. He agrees and adds that he’ll also let Thomas know. The doctor talks to Ridge about Steffy not wanting any more pain medication. Bill still feels very guilty. Liam tells him it’s not his fault. Steffy does, too, later on. Bill and Liam go to get coffee. Ridge and Liam chat with Steffy about Kelly, and also about how she needs to rest and get better. The doctor kicks everyone out so Steffy can rest. Dr. Finn asks Steffy how her pain is. She tries to be tough, saying it’s not that bad, but he can tell that she’s suffering. He suggests that she not try to be so tough. Later, he offers pain medication again, and she agrees, whimpering.

Interview with Serinda Swan and Morwyn Brebner

TV Interview!

Serinda Swan of "Coroner" on The CWMorwyn Brebner from "Coroner" on The CW

Interview with actress Serinda Swan and executive producer Morwyn Brebner from “Coroner” on The CW by Suzanne 7/31/20

Jamie Ruby of SciFiVision asked me to sub for her in this last-minute interview when she had a family emergency. I was happy to do it.

Both of these women seemed very nice, and they were happy to talk about their show. I just loved Serinda as “Zatanna” on “Smallville” (my favorite superheroine of all time, actually), and she was great in “The Inhumans” as well. I know a lot of people said terrible things about that show, but it wasn’t that bad. I grew up reading those comics, so I enjoyed it.  I’m glad she was able to star in this successful Canadian show.  The CW has picked it up, so it premieres Wednesday, August 5.  In Canada, they’ve seen two seasons already and are preparing for the third.

I watched the first two shows and enjoyed them.  It’s a good detective show (even if she is a coroner – of course she solves crimes!).   Roger Cross, one of my favorite Canadian actors, stars as her detective partner, Donovan McAvoy. It’s got some very interesting characters, so I hope you can check it out.

You can read the interview on Jamie’s site.

On August 5th, The CW will introduce U.S. audiences to the hit Canadian show, CORONER.  The show’s debut on the CBC network in Canada was the net’s highest rated new drama in four years, and in the UK, it was the highest rated drama EVER on Universal TV.  We will be airing the first two seasons of the show this fall and season three of the series has already been greenlit and starts filming next month in Canada!

CORONER is a compelling, character-driven drama starring Serinda Swan (“Ballers,” “Inhumans,” “Graceland”) as Dr. Jenny Cooper, a recently-widowed doctor who becomes the city’s new Coroner.  The series is a gripping look at a woman committed to discovering the truth on behalf of the deceased.

View Coroner Promo Here

Show Description:

In the character driven one-hour drama CORONER Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan), a recently widowed, newly appointed coroner investigates any suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto. The series reflects the rich racial, class and gender diversity of the city. Each death brings Jenny into a new arena in the city and sparks buzzworthy themes…As CORONER, Jenny taps into her intuition, as much as her intellect and heart, as she solves cases along with the help of Homicide Detective Donovan “Mac” McAvoy (Roger Cross), a man who isn’t afraid of challenging status quo; pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen (Lovell Adams-Gray), his assistant River Baitz (Kiley May); and Alison Trent (Tamara Podemski), Jenny’s assistant who keeps it real. And while Jenny solves mysterious deaths, she also deals with clinical anxiety, a teenage son, Ross (Ehren Kassam), who is still grieving the death of his father, and the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam (Éric Bruneau).

Interview with Aidan Pierce  Brennan of “NOS4A2” on AMC by Suzanne 7/30/20

This was a fun interview. He seems like a very nice, normal young man. He’s got an excellent start to his career.  He does an amazing job on NOS4A2. Don’t miss his episode this week, Sunday, 8/2 on AMC where he’ll play a young Charlie Manx!  Adult Charlie is played by Zachary Quinto, who’s the villain of the show. We finally see his backstory.

Here is the audio version of the interview.  The transcript below is edited quite a lot for clarity.

Aidan: Hi, how are you?

Suzanne: Okay, how are you, Aidan?

Aidan: I’m good. I’m good.

Suzanne: Good. So, before you were doing TV and movies, did you do any acting?

Aidan: As in theater?

Suzanne: Yes.

Aidan: I actually… I’ve never done theater, and I think that’s because I never.. I never really had that type of.. I think it really takes a lot of pure confidence to get up on that stage and project, and I don’t.. I don’t.. I never really.. I never really could do that, and I really could..no. I am not super theatrical. Which is not to say that it’s something I’ll never do because it’s something I’m definitely interested in, but I don’t think, I don’t think I have ever had that, the confidence to go up there and do that.

Suzanne: Oh. Well, I hope you’ll do it sometime because it sure is a lot of fun.

Aidan: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I love.. I love growing.

Suzanne: Yeah.

Aidan: I live right outside of the city. So, hopefully when social distancing ends, and, you know…

Suzanne: Right.

Aidan: …Out of quarantine, I’ll get to see some more plays ’cause I really like some of them.

Suzanne: Sure. And what did your parents think about your wanting to be an actor?

Aidan: Well, my mom, when she was growing up, I think she did some commercials. I think some modeling. And the movie that actually inspired me to start acting was “Stand By Me.” It’s one of my favorite movies, and River Phoenix’ performance in that, I think, really just… I mean, I watched that with my dad and, and my mom, my entire family… we watched it together and I was really blown away. I kept saying to the natural roots I.. his performance in that, how someone could create a character like this, and I just– I was raving about his performance. I was really impressed by how someone could do this, and I was telling them, I got to do this. I have to try to get into acting. I have to pursue this, and we went to this place and I said..

Suzanne: Oh, cool. So they’ve been pretty supportive the whole time.

Aidan: Absolutely. Oh, absolutely… especially my mom.

Suzanne: Great! What was the audition process like for “NOS4A2”?

Aidan:, I believe it was.. I feel like.. it was a while ago.. It was over a year ago. No, a little less than a year ago, I would say. So, I think it was just one audition, and it was in the city, I think. Yeah, and then I heard a few days later. They put me on hold for a minute and then a couple days later I found out that I got the role.  It was pretty exciting because the same day, the same call with my manager, he said that I also booked another role at the very same time.

Suzanne: Oh, great.

Aidan: So, that was.. that was pretty fun. And yeah [laughs].

Suzanne: And had you watched “NOS4A2” before that or.. or uh.. anything?

Aidan: No, but I’d heard of that. I’d heard about the book, and then I heard people start talking about the show a lot — recently, before my audition.

Suzanne: Cool.

Aidan: So when I.. when I saw that I was auditioning for “NOS4A2″… I’d heard.. I’d heard it before.

Suzanne: All right, and was it fun to film that?

Aidan: Definitely. Definitely. Charlie Manx is such a fun character to play, especially since I had a lot of freedom because I was supposed to be playing  this character that really wasn’t that Charlie Manx everyone knows… I mean, this character has a lot more innocence to him and a lot more.. and I guess a lot less.. uh, menacing and grim.I had a lot of freedom in the sense that like this character is nothing like Charlie Manx and filming that was a lot of fun.  The entire environment was very, much like the show, in the best way possible, but we filmed this wooded area.  It was right on the water, and it was really foggy, so it had this spooky atmosphere. And yeah, it was it was a great time filming, and I.. I really enjoyed playing this character.

Suzanne: And there are a lot of kids on that show. Did you hang out with them? Or were your scenes shot separately?

Aidan: My scenes were shot separately, unfortunately. But our family friend’s daughter is actually on that show.

Suzanne: Oh! [laughs]

Aidan: So yeah, she plays Millie.

Suzanne: Cool. Oh, Millie. Yeah. That’s a great character.

Aidan: Yeah. Yeah [laughs].

Suzanne: So, what do you find most fun about acting?

Aidan:  Trying to become a whole new character. I think that’s the part that really excites me the most. Just losing yourself in these characters, whether it’s just auditioning or… I have such a passion for  just transforming into someone who’s completely not like you at all and doing your best…that’s really exciting to me. I think it takes a lot of understanding the characters and listening. It takes a lot of basing it off of yourself and real life experiences… to me that’s really exciting.

Suzanne: Okay.  A lot of the shows you’ve been in are pretty violent. Are you allowed to watch them? [laughs]

Aidan: [laughs] For the most part, no. I mean, I watched most of them, and some with the scenes I was in..

Suzanne: Right.

Aidan: But for the most part, my parents don’t really let me watch that much violent stuff.

Suzanne: Right? It’s probably a good idea. [laughs]

Aidan: Right?

Suzanne: I mean, I can’t I can’t even watch The Punisher. I’m just like.. no. [laughs]

Aidan: Yeah.. yeah that is pretty scary. My.. my dad really loves that.

Suzanne: Oh, I’m sure. [laughs]

Aidan: And you know.. I watched a lot of the episodes, but not with all the violent stuff.

Suzanne: Right.

Aidan: My parents say, don’t watch that.

Suzanne: Yeah. I loved “Daredevil.” I grew up reading the comics…

Aidan: Right, right.

Suzanne: But it was a bit too violent for me.

Aidan: Right. [laughs]

Suzanne: But “The Punisher” is way worse. [laughs] I couldn’t watch that… So, you’ve been doing some movies, too. How have those been different from working in TV?

Aidan:  Well, I really haven’t had a bad experience on any set. I mean, I’m really enjoying myself, and.. TV, movies, anything.. But I think the main difference is the characters I play. So far, with TV shows, I’ve gotten to play characters… Charlie Manx, Ray Donovan, Frank Castle Jr…. I think the main difference is these characters because both sides were… With a TV job, I get to play darker characters that challenge me a little more. For a movie like “The Secret: Dare to Dream,”  I played someone pretty close to home… just a normal kid. That’s the main difference so far. I’ve had fun with either one of them, but I think the main difference so far is the characters that I got to play.

Suzanne: Okay. Yeah. I was looking over the things you’ve been in, and you often play the younger version of some guy.

Aidan: Yeah.. [laughs] Yeah.

Suzanne: That’s cool. You’ve been doing some things based on comic books. Do you read comic books for fun?

Aidan:  Yes,  I was raised into that because my uncle is very into Marvel Comics, and he would show me older comics, like the Incredible Hulk, or just mainly superhero comics. But yeah, that’s always been something that’s interesting to me.

Suzanne: Oh, I’m sure and…Oh, you got to work with Katie Holmes in the “The Secret: Dare to Dream.”   You know that she was in one of the Batman movies right?

Aidan: Yeah, yeah.

Suzanne: That must really cool-

Aidan: She’s Rachel. Yeah, I do.

Suzanne: That’s got.. yeah, do you think..

Aidan: That was.. that was cool.

Suzanne: Do you think that you’ll probably.. after the pandemic and everything… go to Comic-Con or something like that?

Aidan: I would love to..

Suzanne: Yeah.

Aidan: Since we were little, my brother and I, we obviously love everything about that.  We really like to see movies, and we really like comics.. We always have. And I’d like to go.. if my mom would take me.

Suzanne: Yeah, that’s great. are you based in LA, or New York or..?

Aidan: I’m based a little outside of New York.

Suzanne: Okay. Well, they have the New York Comic-Con there. So that would be good. [laughs]

Aidan: Right? Yeah.

Suzanne: Cool.  If you don’t mind my asking, how old are you now?

Aidan: I’m fourteen.

Suzanne: Okay, that’s good. So you’re just starting high school?

Aidan: l’m going to start high school, hopefully. I guess in a month or so.

Suzanne: Oh great, great. Are you excited?

Aidan: Oh, yeah yeah. Excited and scared.

Suzanne: Yeah. [laughs] Oh, you’ll be fine. So for “Extra Innings,” did you have to train much for all the baseball scenes?

Aidan: I did because you know previous to that…I only really played basketball and lacrosse.  I really never got around to playing baseball very much, except for little league in kindergarten.  I didn’t really know the first thing about baseball.  But I got it together with a trainer and… and even with my director.. we’ve been training in baseball a little bit. But that was hard, too, because I had to base my playing style and baseball stance off of someone else – who’s already very good at baseball – the guy who played the older version of me in the movie.

Suzanne: Right.

Aidan: So, yeah, but that was really fun, and I’m glad I got to play baseball because I really liked it.

Suzanne: Cool. Do you think you might play baseball in school? Now that you’ve done it more?

Aidan: Maybe,but baseball season is the same time as lacrosse season. They’re both in the spring. So I don’t think I’d be able to play in school, but I still watch baseball at home, and I still play baseball with my friends every once in a while.

Suzanne: Right. Well, it’s the only sport on TV right now. So.. [laughs]

Aidan: Yeah, right.

Suzanne: Yeah. My husband’s a big huge baseball fan so.. [laughs]

Aidan: Right.

Suzanne: Now, your movie “The Secret: Dare to Dream” looks good.  What can you tell us about working on that movie?

Aidan: Iit was really one of the best experiences of my life — it was all really exciting because I’ve really never had to leave school or leave home in that extended amount of time for a role, previous to that… That was, I think, two months, or maybe a month and three weeks, in New Orleans, Louisiana. And that was beyond exciting.  Of course my mom was with me, but I had to say goodbye to my brother, my dad, my dogs. And that was a little scary, but you know, when I got there, I got to work with a lot of people I respect a lot. I just had a really great time in that set, working with my family in the movie and that was.. that was really — big time — one of the best experiences of my life.

Suzanne: Cool!  Abd New Orleans is a really cool place, too.. very different from New York.

Aidan: Yeah. Yeah, I loved it there.

Suzanne: Yeah, it’s.. its beautiful there.  So what have you been doing? What have you been up to during the past four months of staying at home?

Aidan: Well…. you know… still going on auditions, but I can’t really go to the city anymore, so all of them are self tapes from home.

Suzanne: Right.

Aidan: Still watching a lot of movies almost every day. Tryin’ to play sports, tryin’ to stay active. I’m trying to convince my parents to let me hang out with my friends a little bit more, but like I’m still practicing social distancing, so I can’t really see much of them. But yeah, I mean, I’m trying to stay busy the last couple weeks.

Suzanne: Okay, cool. Well, thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time for this call.

Aidan: It’s my pleasure. Thank you so much for having me.

TV Interview!

Jason Weems

Interview with comedian Jason Weems by Suzanne 7/28/20

This interview was done via email. I watched his comedy special. He’s very funny! I hope you can check it out.

1. What age were you when you first started writing jokes or performing?

 

I was 15 or 16 when I first remember writing jokes, and I got my first taste of being on a stage (with a mic in my hand) in front of a crowd in high school. I hosted a fashion show and remember the feeling of getting big laughs from simply sharing my thoughts. It instantly grabbed me, and I fell deeply in love with comedy. It wasn’t until years later in college that I tried my first official attempt at standup. Up until that point I was the host who was surprisingly funny, but there was no pressure because there was no expectation. It’s a completely new level of pressure & expertise required when you’re announced as a comedian and people who paid money actually EXPECT for you to be funny. Let’s just say the first attempt wasn’t very fruitful, LOL.

 

2. Which comedians did you watch growing up and that influenced you?

 

I watched whoever was accessible when I first got into standup. Some of my earliest memories of standup were Comic View on BET and those HBO half-hour specials that used to come on. I was a student to it all though. The Original Kings Of Comedy had a really profound impression on me. I loved everything about that special. The ingenuity, the energy, the creativity, the jewels they dropped, it all was scripture to me. Some of my influences comedically have been Chappelle, Rock, DL Hughley, Jamie Foxx, Robin Harris, Tommy Davidson and I’ve got a ton of peers who I admire and who inspire me.

 

3. Are other people in your family funny as well?

 

Absolutely. No one that has made a website like me or anything, LOL, but definitely funny. My Father is probably my earliest comedic influence. He’s a stoic man to the majority of the world that meets him, but to his family & those closest to him, he’s a straight FOOL !!! He introduced me & my brother to an array of horribly funny movies and moments in life. You know those movies that are so terrible that they’re actually good somehow. I can still clearly remember sitting on the couch with him and my older brother when I was little watching the worst movies and just crying laughing. I’m talking straight weeping with laughter. My wife & kids are in a league of their own and ready for their own sitcom. They’re just waiting on the right money deal to come through. They make me run away laughing its so damn funny.

 

4. Doing standup, do you travel a lot? Is your wife supportive of that?

 

I did a fair amount of traveling pre-Rona, pre-Dying & pre-Fatherhood, but I try to keep it as close to home as possible nowadays. I’m not a big national name just yet (hopefully my new comedy special Unknown changes that), so I really try to make the gigs I take make sense. My family is priority one always for me, so really being selective with my calendar is important. I take my boys to school and pick them up daily. I do homework with them and never miss a thing, so I select shows that support that. Shows that I can drive to and be back home by the morning to get my boys up. The ones I get on a plane for are either career-advancing opportunities or bank account advancing opportunities. Everything else is a hard pass, LOL. Luckily, my wife who is my biggest fan has always supported me in all things comedy. She is in many ways the catalyst that finally made me take the full leap into it.

 

5. Have you gotten much feedback from fans or others since you almost died? Obviously there’s been a lot of press…

 

So much. I’ve had too many meaningful exchanges with folks to remember them all, but there has been a ton of feedback. All positive. Whether its been people commenting on my story who heard Season 3 of First Day Back Podcast where the entire ordeal is masterfully documented by Tally Abecassis, or folks who came to the filming of my latest comedy special Unknown which drops on Amazon August 4th, 2020. A lot of people have reached out sharing their own tales with death & their feelings surrounding it all. I’ve had some really great conversations and connections with folks.

 

6. Did you go to college, and if so, what did you major in?

 

Indeed I did. I attended the mighty Morgan State University here in my beautiful hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. I kind of majored in Elementary Education, but they were tripping, so I took the quick exit and graduated with a degree in Family & Consumer Sciences. Which is a fancy way of saying Home Economics aka “I Wasted 40 Grand Mom & Dad”.

 

7. How many years have you been doing standup?

 

September 27, 2006 is my standup comedy anniversary. So this fall will mark 14 years for me if the world doesn’t self destruct before then.

 

8. Who is the most famous comedian that you’ve met while doing comedy and traveling?

 

I’ve met a lot of famous comics during my years of service, LOL, but hands down it would have to be Dave Chappelle. The funniest thing, it wasn’t even in a comedy environment. It wasn’t at a club, or in Los Angeles or NYC at some late night spot. It was right here in my lovely hometown of Baltimore, Maryland at a fundraiser for his God-brother Ben Jealous who was running as the Democratic nominee for Governor here in Maryland. My wife Dionne Joyner- Weems and one of her closest friends and business partners Shelonda Stokes finagled the opportunity for me to attend and I took full advantage of it. I’m a big fan of still writing by hand, and for buying beautiful blank cards and writing real sentiments to those you love and care for. Dave Chappelle is one of those people for me, so that’s what I did. I found the greatest blank card and spilled all of my thoughts & gratitude for him into it. I wasn’t sure how I was gonna get it in his hands and how it would be received, but I wasn’t leaving that swanky ass garden party without giving one of my greatest inspirations his flowers while he is here. About 30 minutes into the soirée, my wife and I were speaking to the hosts of the event about their lovely home when I saw Chappelle and his publicist Carla Simms walk-in (lovely woman). I gave my wife the “Chappelle and his publicist Carla Simms just walked in eyes” and I broke away from telling the host that his home was lovely, LOL. By the time I made it out to the garden area, Chappelle was already swarmed by everybody and their ancestors. I played it cool, and the universe conspired. A few minutes later, it was as if the comedic forces that govern our world saw fit that we meet. We bumped into each other and got caught into a great quick conversation. We talked about standup briefly, I made him spit laugh, push me and run in the opposite direction which is one of the highest compliments in comedic black culture and I was able to personally hand him my 4 page handwritten card and express to him verbally his impact on my trajectory in life. It was powerful and a moment I’ll always hold close.

 

9. Did your doctors ever tell you why your nebulizer didn’t work well enough that night that you died?

 

That sentiment was never relayed to me exactly. They feel like the most likely culprit was a glass of wine I sipped at the venue prior to going on stage that night in Philly (May 3, 2017). My pulmonologist feels that it was the sulfites found in the wine & even possibly the type of barrel that wine was stored in (my pulmonologist is also a part-time detective). And I had unfortunately already collapsed by the time the folks who tried to assist me hooked my nebulizer up (I need a new pit crew, lol).

 

10. Do you have better control of your asthma now?

 

I feel like I do, but I did on May 3, 2017, too. I take all of my prescribed meds, exercise, eat right and pray, not much more I can do. It’s a scary reality of mine, but my reality nonetheless.

 

11. Is performing in clubs and being on the road bad for your asthma (is there a lot of smoking, for instance)?

 

It can be. Most of the venues I choose to work are pretty good about regulating that type of stuff in the areas the performers are in, but there is of course some of that to a certain degree (even if it’s from peers). The stress of traveling, sleeping in airports, and driving insanely long distances can be detrimental, which is why I avoid it as much as “financially feasible” right now, LOL.

 

12. What plans or preparations have you made since almost dying? For example, seeing a financial planner, etc.

 

Life Insurance was ramped up immediately after & my travel schedule shifted (as outlined in question 4) to accommodate my health concerns. Oh, and I stopped drinking wine IMMEDIATELY !!! #DamnThatWine

 

13. Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?

 

To not die from asthma. To see every continent. To sell my script & develop my sitcom. To see my kids grow up & their kids grow up. To put out more comedy specials. For this comedy special Jason Weems: Unknown to do something insane that no one ever expected. To secure my kid’s financial futures & their kid’s financial futures from doing what I love. To walk outside without a face mask & damn flame thrower would be nice.

 

14. Have your kids ever heard or seen daddy perform, or are they too young?

 

They have actually seen me two times now. My boys are 8 & 6 (twins). The first time they accompanied me to a show I had at The Kennedy Center while my wife was away for a work retreat. They got to see Daddy in another element as they waited with myself and a few other comics in the green room that night. They sat backstage as I closed the show, and I brought them out on stage to uproarious applause at the end of the night. The second time is when we filmed “Jason Weems: Unknown” before a Sold-Out crowd. That night was electric, and folks can get some of that electricity on August 4th when it begins streaming on Amazon.

 

15. How did you and your wife meet?

 

We met our first day of college on the steps of Holmes Hall at our beloved Morgan State University here in Baltimore. Our relationship grew into a deep friendship as we served in student government together (I was class king & she was class president), and we began dating officially our Junior year. Although everybody said they knew we were together since that first day of college on the steps of Holmes Hall. And we stillllllll together, LOL.

He’s always been able to see the humor in anything around him. It took years before he finally found his way to a mic, but he says his first attempt was even funnier than the shoes coming off.

Hour Comedy Special Drops August 4, 2020 on 800 Pound Gorilla Pictures

All PR Inquiries to Kathryn Musilek: km@sharkpartymedia.com

Jason Weems, proud Baltimore native and renowned comic known for his quick wit and drive for life since he died for 5 minutes in 2017, has a brand new hour of comedy, Unknown coming out at the top of August 2020, on 800 Pound Gorilla Pictures, available everywhere comedy is sold or streamed in both video and audio album format. 

On May 3, 2017, Jason Weems died after a stand-up performance in Philadelphia. No pulse. No heartbeat. 5-minutes. He awoke 16-hours later in the hospital labeled as “Unknown”. This life altering experience re-ignited his comedic drive to never allow his life or his talent to be overlooked again. The Guardian and Washington Post spoke to Weems early last year about the event which largely informs the upcoming hour of new material. The New Yorker covered his 6-part series on the award winning podcast, First Day Back as well, which gives listeners an in-depth description of his near-death experience. 

With vast themes including hope, resilience, life & death, Weems finds his way to levity and joy in Unknown.

Jason Weems’ love & spark for comedy goes all the back to his childhood where chronic asthma kept him sidelined from many everyday activities. He spent many days sitting on his apartment steps watching other kids play freely & observing every detail of life. During these times and countless hospitalizations, he discovered his ability to shift the energy in a room with his words and observations. It was a liberating feeling that allowed him to not feel captive to his condition. 

As years went on, he discovered that often the funniest things came from moments that started out misfortunately. Like a moment during his very brief JV high school football playing days, where he was hit so hard that he slid under the opposing team’s bench and lost his shoes (both of them). His embarrassing incident ended up being a go to story around friends, and it brought Weems to realize how much he loved finding the humor even in his most unfortunate moments. 

Years later, his response to his near-death experience was no different. In fact, before Weems even left the hospital he was writing jokes, asking his wife to note them in his cell phone so he wouldn’t forget.

Jason Weems is a comedic genius, actor and writer who has been featured on NBC’S Last Comic Standing, Fox and HBO. In 2014, his online series The Lunchtime Show premiered on Marlon Wayans’ comedy platform WhatTheFunny.com.

Primetime TV Review: “Upload”

TV Review!

Upload on Amazon Prime

“Upload” on Amazon Prime Review by Suzanne 7/25/20

I watched this show because I just love Robbie Amell. It hooked me right away, and I watched the whole first season. I don’t usually binge-watch because I don’t have much free time, and I watch a lot of shows for my site. This one is worth it.

I will caution you that it has a somewhat-sad ending, but I’m sure we will see it resolved in the second season.

The show is set in the future, where there is an afterlife of sorts, set up by a major internet corporation. You can choose to have your mind put into the computer, and then you live in a type of heaven. Those who have a lot of money live in the best type of heaven. Those without much money live in a more limited version. Hard to believe, but society is even more deeply divided by rich and poor than it is now.

The hero of this show is a self-centered, handsome, young programmer named Nathan (Amell), who comes from a working class family. He and his partner, Jamie (Jordan Johnson-Hinds) have developed ground-breaking software. Nathan has a rich, beautiful, very shallow girlfriend named Ingrid (Allegra Edwards). When Nathan’s automatic car has an accident and he’s rushed to the ER, his girlfriend uploads him into her rich people’s heaven. He ends up falling in love with Nora (Andy Allo), a woman that works for the corporation that runs it (a customer service person, basically).  While Nathan and Nora fall for each other, they uncover a murder plot and more.

The show is one part comedy, one part romance, one part mystery, and one part wry social commentary. The plot unfolds in a very interesting way, and things happen that you won’t expect. The best shows have many layers that unfold gradually to shock you without seeming too complicated. This is one of those. It’s delightful.

You should check it out. This is my favorite show this year. I can’t wait for the second season.
