– EYE-BALL MovieZone review – TV Series:
-Luther –
| Author: EYE-BALL MovieZone | Undated 5th July 2013 |

Review Links – “Luther”


“Luther” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

Luther is a British psychological crime drama television series starring Idris Elba as the title character Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. A first series of six episodes was broadcast on BBC One from 4 May to 8 June 2010. The second series of four episodes was shown on BBC One in summer 2011. During the Edinburgh TV Festival, BBC One controller Danny Cohen announced there will be a third series. The third series began on 2 July, 2013.

The character of Luther is played by Idris Elba, who won the Golden Globe award for best actor in a miniseries at the 2011 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2012, a year after his nomination in 2011.

Plot:

John Luther is a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) working for the Serious Crime Unit in season one, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in season two. A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes dangerous in the violence of his fixations. But Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals. For Luther, the job always comes first. His dedication is a curse and a blessing, both for him and those close to him.

EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

“Luther” represents some of the best of UK drama, it is groundbreaking in storylines and takes crime thrillers to new levels. The central character is flawed and is the new way in acknowledging and humanising how law enforcement is portrayed on our TV screens.

Luther – the central character has personal life challenges that he has to juggle with all the drama of his job of chasing down serial killers hell bent on life destruction – it’s a mix that is thoroughly engaging and has you not wanting to wait for the next installment in the continuing story lines.

The best UK TV for a long time. The equal of if not better than “Walking the Dead” and “Wire in the Blood” …

– Orphan Black –
| Author: EYE-BALL MovieZone | Undated 16th June 2013 |

Review Links – “Orphan Black”


“Orphan Black” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

Orphan Black is a American-Canadian science fiction television series that stars Tatiana Maslany as several identical women who are revealed to be clones. The series focuses on Sarah Manning, a woman who assumes the identity of her clone, Elizabeth Childs, after the latter commits suicide. The series raises issues about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its impact on issues of personal identity.

The show premiered at WonderCon in Anaheim, California on March 29, 2013. The television premiere of the first 10-episode season was on March 30, 2013. On May 2, 2013 BBC America renewed Orphan Black for a 10-episode second season to air in 2014.

As an explanation of the series title, in Season 1 Episode 8 there is mention by Mrs S.(Siobhan) who says “children in the black” were “undocumented, outside of the system…subjects of medical experiments”.

EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

The lead actress in the show – Tatiana Maslany – won the ‘Best Actress’ in a Drama Series award at the recent US Critics Awards – she is tipped as a ‘dark-horse’ choice for the Emmy Best Actress award next month.

The show takes 2-3 episodes to understand the ‘sicence-fiction’ aspect but when it kicks in the whole show opens up. The lead actress plays seven different parts in the series and each of the roles requires completely different perspectives and history.

The 2nd season set for 2014 promises much and will be interesting to see where the shows goes once the end of season storyline is dealt with.

Title:
– EYE-BALL MovieZone review – TV Series:
-The Bridge –
| Author: EYE-BALL MovieZone | Undated 16th June 2013 |

Review Links – “The Bridge”


“The Bridge” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

The Bridge was a Canadian police drama commissioned by CTV and CBS starring Aaron Douglas. The name of the series is derived from the bridge which separates the wealthy Rosedale neighborhood of Toronto with one of its poorest, St. James Town.

The initial order is for 11 episodes, produced by Entertainment One. After CTV ordered the pilot to series in November 2008, CTV later shared the pilot with CBS.[1] This series premiered on CTV on March 5, 2010 and premiered on July 10, 2010 on CBS. It has been canceled in the US after three episodes due to low ratings. CTV announced on June 3, 2010 that the series will return for a second season during the 2010–2011 season.[4] However, on January 13, 2011, star Aaron Douglas tweeted that the series has been officially cancelled after only one season.

The Bridge is loosely based upon former Toronto police union head Craig Bromell, in the form of Aaron Douglas’s character, Frank Leo. After being unanimously elected head of the union, Leo sets out to clean up the corruption in the force while working in the best interests of the rank-and-file.

EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

“The Bridge” is a single season of high quality drama set in Toronto and first aired in 2010. It was scheduled to have a 2nd season and the final episode of season 1 set up the next season.

Why it was cancelled as explained above cannot be understood – it was too good a show.

This is the 2nd Canadian show that had a brilliant first season that took the audience into corrupt officialdom that was cancelled after initial plans for a 2nd season were agreed to.

There was also a similar US show cancelled this year after its first season that had a story line too close to home – that show was “Last Resort’ – a show about a nuclear sub commander taking control of nuclear weapons and using them against the corrupt US Government.

The other Canadian shows was:

“Intelligence” – reported below – linked here

Intelligence is a Vancouver-based television crime drama starring Ian Tracey and Klea Scott that aired on the CBC. With its pilot first airing on November 28, 2005, the series began regular broadcasting on October 10, 2006. CBC reaired the pilot on June 7, 2007 and began broadcasting reruns of season one on Fridays starting on June 8, 2007. A second season then aired from October 2007, concluding in December that same year. The series was produced by Haddock Entertainment, which also produced Da Vinci’s Inquest and Da Vinci’s City Hall.

On March 7, 2008, the CBC announced that Intelligence would be cancelled. There were various rumors surrounding the cancellation of the series. Kevin Baker from The National Post alleged: “There’s a theory afloat that CBC Television cancelled the unusually good drama Intelligence in fear of upsetting Canada’s New Government, which is thought to be slavering for an excuse to junk the nation’s public broadcaster and sell off the parts.”

The show centres on Jimmy Reardon (Tracey), one of Vancouver’s top organized crime bosses, and Mary Spalding (Scott), the director of the Vancouver Organized Crime Unit (OCU), who has offered Reardon immunity from prosecution in exchange for his role as a police informant. The show also stars Matt Frewer as Ted Altman, the scheming assistant director of the OCU who seeks to replace Spalding, and John Cassini as Ronnie Delmonico, Reardon’s business partner and confidant.

“The Bridge” is throughly believable and given where the last episode ends – it’s understandable why the 2nd season was cancelled if political interference was the reason.This show is an eye-opener to the naive and gives insight to how Police force ‘brass’ conduct business with politicians and the police officers.

-The Big C –
| Author: EYE-BALL MovieZone | Undated 3rd June 2013 |

Review Links – “The Big C”


“The Big C” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

The Big C is a Showtime original television series created by Darlene Hunt which premiered on August 16, 2010. It drew the largest audience for a Showtime original series premiere in eight years. The second season premiered on June 27, 2011. The third season premiered on April 8, 2012. On July 31, 2012, The Big C was renewed for a fourth and final season, which premiered on Monday, April 29, 2013.

The show follows teacher Cathy Jamison – a reserved, suburban wife and mother – who is diagnosed with melanoma. The realisation of this forces her to really begin to live for the first time in her adult life. At first she chooses to keep her diagnosis from her family, behaving in ways they find puzzling and increasingly bizarre. She finds new freedom to express herself. As the show progresses, Cathy allows her family and some new friends to support her as she copes with her terminal diagnosis, and finds both humor and pathos in the many idiosyncratic relationships in her life.

Back to Top


EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

“The Big C” is a show that makes light of ‘cancer’ and shows how a quirky family deals with all the pitfalls along the way.

It’s sad, endearing, funny, modernly hilariously so in parts, and Laura Linney plays the part of her career as the cancer sufferer.  Oliver Platt likewise as the suffering husband.

The story has humanity in spades and as we all become touched by the loss of loved ones at early ages due to this disease – this show will help those left behind and those enduring what happens as sufferers try to cope with the aura of death.

It is not sad – at least not up until the middle of the third season – but entertaining time spent contemplation all the things in life you wanted to do but never did.

Oh – and the weird brother totally cracks the mould …

Review Links – “Elementary”


Elementary

[Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

Elementary is an American TV crime drama series that premiered on CBS on September 27, 2012. It presents a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes set in the contemporary United States. It stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. Holmes is a former consultant to Scotland Yard, and also an addict. He travels to New York City to check into a rehabilitation center and stays on in Brooklyn with Watson, who becomes his sober companion.

On October 23, 2012 CBS picked up Elementary for a full season. On November 15, 2012 CBS ordered two additional episodes to its current season, bringing the total number of episodes to 24.

Back to Top


EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

‘Elementary’ is a surprise packet – if you liked Jonny Lee Miller in ‘Eli Stone’ and disappointed at that shows axing, then Miller’s back in another eccentric crime based drama that enthralls.

Lucy Liu plays his ‘companion’ – and I’ll leave the explanation to that little job description to you all to find out, and the plot thickens to their developing relationship and it works so well for the show.

Aidan Quinn adds quality as the New York Detective who worked with Sherlock at Scotland Yard.  His contribution as supporting cast gives the show a stability – it appears Quinn has had a face-lift or two – but he plays a strong sidekick – but it is ‘Watson’s’ character [Lui] that does the most to add spice to the show.

The ‘Sherlock Homes’ thing has been done so many times – but this is by far the best in recent times. I watched the 15 episodes aired back to back and as each episode ended, the eagerness to see the next episode left me without sleep … each episode is a story in itself, and the crime aspect is also good TV, but the character development that carries over into each new episode has just that right amount of traction that leaves you wanting more.

The ‘consultancy’ angle of Miller’s character is a take off from ‘Jane’s consultancy in ‘The Mentalist’ and softens the entertainment against the hard core cop shows.  

One of the better ‘new season’ shows and a decision is still pending on a Season 2 – there will be 24 episodes in this Season 1.

Garrow’s Law:

[Pasted from Wikipedia]-

Garrow’s Law is a British period legal drama about the 19th-century lawyer William Garrow. The series debuted on 1 November 2009 on BBC One and BBC HD. A second series was announced on 7 July 2010 and was broadcast from 14 November 2010.

A third series consisting of four episodes was commissioned and was aired from 13 November 2011. Garrow’s Law was cancelled after three series in February 2012.
Back to Top


EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

I love quality Law drama that is both engaging and creative … by far ‘Boston Legal’ offered the best law drama ever with wit, humour, and orations about Political and Social issues that both engaged and had relevance.

Garrow’s Law is Boston Legal 200 years ago – William Garrow was a barrister in the early form of the profession and his court was the ‘Old Baily’. The three season, 12 episodes cover some of the land breaking laws of the time that have relevance today … there is a love triangle introduced that works and presents Garrow as a complex man for simple times ..

The idea of innocence before proven guilt was challenged by Garrow in real-life – read William Garrow’s bio here – you will thoroughly enjoy this series …

Detachment

TV Show Review:

Last Man Standing:

[Pasted from Wikipedia]-

The series follows Mike Baxter, a director of marketing at an outdoor sporting goods store in Denver, Colorado, whose world is dominated by women – especially at home with his wife and three daughters, one of whom is a single mother.
Back to Top



EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

‘Tim the Toolman’s’ Tim Allan from ‘Home Improvement’ fame has returned with another ‘MAN’ show hit success.  The first season of “Last Man Standing” – some 24 episodes – wrapped up its US debut season in May 2012.

As with ‘Home Improvement’ Australian TV exec’s passed on taking up the series much to Aussie fans disgust.

This show showed promise from the very first episodes – Nancy Travis another favourite actress fronts as his wife and along with three daughters, poor old Mike Baxter – (Tim Allen’s role) – gets to deal with all types of gender and real life issues.

Some of the ‘Home Improvement’ format forms part of the success of this show and it still works big time.  The laughs never stop and Hector Elizondo plays a support character to help make the show work.

Highly recommend viewing
