First trailer for remake of Roots arrives

ABC's miniseries ROOTS has had a lasting impact on me throughout my life. Having watched it as part of a school project back in the 5th grade, ROOTS taught me understanding and respect for the emotional journey of blacks through generations, as they were forced into slavery and made a part of one of the truly dark marks in American history. I imagine I'm not the only one who the...

Welcome home the beast in the new trailer for A&E's Damien TV series

Television shows have dealt with less than reputable protagonists before, but it's not every day that your "hero" is the Antichrist himself. A&E's upcoming series based upon THE OMEN will feature just that, with Bradley James (Merlin) stepping into the role of a now grown-up Damien Thorn who must come to terms with his true identity. There once was a time when the...

Heed his word, new teaser for A&E's Damien TV series is "all for you"

There once was a time when the thought of translating a beloved film to television was a reprehensible act, but recent shows like Hannibal, Fargo, and even Bates Motel prove that it can be done, and done well at that. I suppose time will tell if A&E's new series based upon THE OMEN will be counted among the shows I just mentioned, but I believe that Damien definitely has...

First teaser for Damien; A&E's Omen sequel series starring Bradley James

There was once a time when a television spin-off of a film was something to be mocked, but when Hannibal rolled around (and to a lesser extent Bates Motel) I knew I had to change my tune. Those shows, among others, proved that you could successfully transform what worked on the big-screen in new and exciting ways. In keeping with the trend of adapting classic horror films to...

A&E to remake vampire film Let The Right One In as a television series

When a movie makes a splash internationally, it often gets the remake treatment by Hollywood. In 2010, Matt Reeves helmed the remake of Tomas Alfredson 's LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. While LET ME IN was a well-made film, it didn't offer anything unique to truly set it apart from the original film. But, despite the original novel being mined as two quality features, cable network...

This trailer for Bates Motel gives us a glimpse at the reimagined Norman Bates

After a pair of teaser trailers , we now have our first solid look at the re-imagining of Alfred Hitchcock 's PSYCHO. While I was skeptical of how this would work as a series, I have to say this video gives me a lot of hope. Instead of a murder-of-the-week format, BATES MOTEL truly looks like it will be an exploration of the unique teenage years of Norman Bates and his mother....

These two teasers for A&E's Bates Motel make it seem like another American Horror Story

BATES MOTEL, the PYSCHO prequel series airing on A&E next year, is going to focus on the formative years of Norman Bates and how he became the killer we saw in the classic Alfred Hitchcock film. But, what I anticipated as a psychological thriller looks to be more in line with the FX series AMERICAN HORROR STORY, based on these teasers. Granted, as teasers these could just be...

Freddie Highmore will play Norman Bates in A&E's Psycho prequel series

A&E has been good to me. They've provided tons of interesting shows to watch like HOARDERS, INTERVENTION, THE FIRST 48, BEYOND SCARED STRAIGHT, and several others. Basically it's my go to place for reality type programming. The only fictional drama I've watched that plays on the channel is CSI:MIAMI. David f*cking Caruso. Love him. That show was originally broadcast on CBS, and now...
