Mon, Mar 24th 2014 11:45 am
After three weeks of blind auditions, and more than four-dozen performances, "The Voice" began whittling down the field of hopefuls in the first week of the "Battle Rounds."

Sat, Mar 22nd 2014 08:25 pm
The first episode of NBC's "Crisis" was delightfully twisty. A busload of Ballard High School students is kidnapped; these teens, the offspring of D.C.'s power players, are used as pawns as their parents are forced to work for the captors.
'Crisis' is a fun ride of uncertainty, chaos
Mon, Mar 17th 2014 05:30 pm

'The Voice': Ria Eaton is a rags-to-riches story
Mon, Mar 17th 2014 12:50 pm
INTERVIEW: "The Voice" is a life-changing opportunity for singer Ria Eaton. To put it bluntly, her appearance on the hit NBC reality series was like winning the lottery - a one-in-a-million shot to be plucked from obscurity, and to work with musicians she'd never be able to work with on her own.

Mon, Mar 10th 2014 05:50 pm
Performing in "The Voice's" blind auditions is hard, but it's nothing compared to taking the stage for the "Battle Rounds" and the "Knockouts."
'The Voice' is a second chance for Sisaundra Lewis, Emily B., Audra McLaughlin
Mon, Mar 10th 2014 05:40 pm
If "American Idol's" "thing" is to showcase less-talented singers in the hopes of getting a laugh from viewers, then "The Voice's" "thing" is to showcase more-talented singers in the hopes of inspiring viewers.

'The Voice' could have its first all-stars in Christina Grimmie and Bria Kelly
Sat, Mar 1st 2014 02:10 pm
NBC's "The Voice" is the top-rated singing competition on television and well-liked by critics. But if there's one criticism the show gets before each cycle, it's that the show has yet to produce a mega star.

That could change this season thanks to "Voice" standouts Christina Grimmie and Bria Kelly.

Fri, Jan 24th 2014 05:50 pm
Wesen Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a part-wolf blutbad, and Rosalee (Bree Turner) a part-fox fuchsbau, are not only the "normal" ones on "Grimm," but actually provide grounding for the "human" characters.
'The Blacklist': James Spader knocking 'Red' Reddington role out of the park
Mon, Jan 20th 2014 02:00 pm
In the real world, someone like Raymond "Red" Reddington would certainly be looked upon as a man of questionable morals, and not the kind of person one would emulate. In fact, he would be a cautionary tale for those who would seek a life of crime and lawlessness.
'Helix' a scary good Syfy series
Fri, Jan 17th 2014 04:05 pm
The show, in fact, is not another zombie show. Nor is it typical Syfy fare, for that matter. It's not a deliciously B-movie, like, say, "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" or "Sharknado." It's not brooding like "Being Human" or whimsical like "Eureka."
Intense actors square off in 'Helix'
Fri, Jan 17th 2014 04:00 pm

'Grimm' tackles Christmas with its own 'Twelve Days of Krampus'
Thu, Dec 12th 2013 12:15 pm
Portland Det. Nick Burkhardt began the season as a zombie, was cured (but kept some super-powers), and has since dealt with the three little pigs (who were vengeful, Wesen-killing chefs), underwater sea monsters and a "Hulk"-strong boy who appeared to be possessed. Just in time for the holiday season, he will square off with "Krampus," a giant, horned villain who somewhat resembles like Santa Claus.

'The Voice': One of these singers will win season 5
Mon, Nov 4th 2013 09:10 am
Predicting who will win a reality singing competition is a little like trying to figure out Google analytics. We think we know what works and what doesn't, but at the end of the day, TV audiences are as hard to predict as search engine rankings.

Still, just as we know page traffic, links and social media factor into what we see on Google, we know a few things about what singers need to do to garner votes.

Mon, Oct 28th 2013 07:00 am

With steals in play, coaches share the wealth on 'The Voice'
Mon, Oct 28th 2013 07:00 am
"The Voice" gives new meaning to '"lose the battle, win the war" - at least for those singers who are "stolen" in the show's "Battle" and "Knockout" rounds. For these performers, a loss in a head-to-head competition eliminated them from one team, and led to their selection by a second team.
Interview: 'Grimm' is a joy for actress Bitsie Tulloch
Fri, Oct 25th 2013 07:00 am
A Portland cop with ancient powers battles shape-shifting wesen while trying to lead a normal life alongside his best friend (who is, basically, the Big Bad Wolf), and his longtime girlfriend (who, for many months, had boyfriend-specific amnesia).

It might be called "Grimm," but it's undeniably fun to watch.

'The Voice': Coaches call Kat a contender
Mon, Oct 21st 2013 11:25 am

'Battle' continues on 'The Voice'

Coaches: Grey 'has what it takes' to win 'The Voice'
Mon, Oct 14th 2013 10:45 am
"50 Shades of Grey" may be all the rage in Hollywood, but it only took one performance from Grey the singer to convince three coaches she can win season five of "The Voice." On the fifth and final night of the blind auditions, Grey's rendition of Kelly Clarkson's hit "Catch My Breath" drew "I Want You" chair turns from Adam Levine, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton (who, in fact, turned a full 360 degrees).

'The Voice': Briana Cuoco makes a 'Big Bang' of her own

Live and let Dayo
Tue, Sep 17th 2013 09:20 pm
It's debatable how well we journalists actually know the actors and actresses we interview. But to me, Dayo Okeniyi seems like a nice guy. He appears to be intelligent and a hard worker. He loves his mother and he's trying to be an inspiration for those in his home country of Nigeria.

And yet, for some strange reason, I keep watching Dayo die on screen.
