Taken Season 2 NBC Clive Standen

‘Taken’: The NBC Thriller Gets a “More Mills” Reboot

When Taken debuted last winter, fans of the Luc Besson film franchise on which the series was based knew they were getting an origin story. What they didn’t expect was that the drama and its core character Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) were almost unrecognizable to the Besson mythology. Rather than give up on a promising premise, NBC instead opted to reboot its reboot, cleaning house on an oft confusing array of supplemental characters and bringing in Person of Interest’s Greg Plageman to oversee a more Mills-centric tale, augmented with just a pair of intriguing newbies. In Season 2, Mills is […]

That “something” smashes […]

Rush Hour CBS

Not so fast: Rush Hour TV series isn’t up to speed

A TV series adapted from a popular film franchise has the benefit of brand recognition and a built-in audience. On the other hand, the TV project is saddled with its own set of expectations and inevitable comparisons to the films. In the case of Rush Hour on CBS, the movies leave their TV adaptation in the dust. Chris Tucker played wisecracking maverick detective Carter and Jackie Chan played straitlaced Hong Kong detective and martial arts expert Lee in three Rush Hour movies. Now CBS is reimagining the interracial buddy-cop action/comedy franchise in a new hourlong series starring relative newcomers Justin […]
