November 10, 2017 Lori Acken 0

  Why didn’t she run? Why didn’t she scream? Why didn’t she tell puzzled bystanders or suspicious cops that she was, indeed, Elizabeth Smart? That Elizabeth Smart, the lovely, fairy-tale-obsessed 14-year-old who, in 2002, was snatched from her Utah home by Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee and subjected to nine months of physical and psychological abuse fueled by Mitchell’s twisted God complex and sexual appetites. For 15 years, Smart has heard it all. From TV and radio talking heads. From lawyers and reporters and people on the street. From other kidnapping victims who reach out to her online and […]

USA’s New ‘Damnation’ Is A Brilliantly Wicked Thrill Ride

November 3, 2017 Barb Oates 0

Buckle up, for this is TV at its best. Rich in relevancy to our current times but set in the 1930s American heartland, USA Network’s Damnation comes from Longmire’s Tony Tost, who wrote and created the can’t-turn-away saga starring Killian Scott and Logan Marshall-Green. In equally juicy roles, Scott plays Seth Davenport, a roving preacher using his pulpit for politics and inciting downtrodden farmers of Iowa to stand up against the wealthy bankers and store owners, and Marshall-Green plays the malevolent, emotionless Creeley Turner, hired by a tycoon to stop the uprising using any means necessary. The two, however, share […]

‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Season 2: Starz’s Bold And Sensual Drama Tackles Two Separate Storylines

October 31, 2017 Lori Acken 0

The Girlfriend Experience, indie filmmakers Amy Seimetz and Lodge Kerrigan’s unflinching examination of the high-end sex trade, was proudly edgy right out of the gate. Produced by Steven Soderbergh, whose 2009 film of the same name inspired the anthology drama, the series prompted a spirited debate about whether it was prurient TV porn or a gutsy, woman-centric examination of sexual power, self-worth and capitalism. And though many of the show’s devoted fans hoped Season 2 would delve further into the dealings of Riley Keough’s student-slash-escort Christine Reade, they’re getting a whole new Experience instead. The 14-episode Season 2 features hourlong […]

The Long Road Home: We’re On Set As Martha Raddatz’s Moving Tale Of Military Sacrifice Comes To National Geographic

October 30, 2017 Lori Acken 0

It’s 1am on a stifling, central Texas June night and a life-or-death battle is being waged in a remote area of the sprawling Fort Hood military base. Fifteen soldiers hunker down in an open-sided tactical vehicle that is no match for their assailants’ firepower. Some fire frantically into the hostile darkness. Others bellow from the pain of fresh wounds. And one, their leader, does his best to mitigate chaos. No, war hasn’t come stateside. Nor is this an elaborate training exercise. Instead, I’m in the midst of a rending, pivotal moment on the set of National Geographic’s event series The […]
