‘The Flash’ Review: We Answer 15 Questions About Tonight’s ‘Trap’

The CW
The Flash is often resistant to the type of analysis that helps populate episodic recaps. That’s not to say it’s not good, which it often is. That’s not to say it’s not entertaining, because Lordy was “The Trap” entertaining. It’s just that everything that’s good about “The Trap” is right there on the surface. There are no metaphors, similes, or subtext to the episode. It’s pure plot, deployed in expert fashion. You saw the same things I did. There’s not much for me to explain. I’d simply be regurgitating the episode right back at you. And that’s neither good nor entertaining.

‘Flesh and Bone’ Trailer: Starz’s Ballet Drama Series Gives Serious ‘Black Swan’ Vibes

by Britt Hayes April 28, 2015 @ 6:03 PM
Your knee-jerk reaction to the words “ballet drama” may be to avert your eyes, but like Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, upcoming Starz series Flesh and Bone promises to deliver on some very dark aspects of the world of ballet. The first trailer for the series definitely doesn’t play down that comparison, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the series likely hopes to draw a similar audience — especially with the help of acclaimed Australian director David Michod.

Jenny Slate Reunites With ‘Obvious Child’ Director for New FX Comedy Series

by Britt Hayes April 27, 2015 @ 1:40 PM
One of the best comedies (and best films) to come out of 2014 was Obvious Child, the Jenny Slate rom-com directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre. The pair had such immense chemistry together that it’s hardly surprising to see them team up again, this time for a new FX comedy series that will take Slate on the road with Ari Graynor in what’s being described as “like Thelma and Louise — but nobody dies.”
