Sometimes we want to forget who we are and just disappear. But, imagine if this really happened to you due to a traumatic event.

This is the storyline behind a recent episode of NBC’s long-running drama series “Law & Order: SVU.” In ‘Exile,’ actress Aimée Spring Fortier stepped in the shoes of an assault victim suffering from such a disorder – and she’s completely unaware of it when she wakes up in a hospital with no memory.

In real life, Aimée isn’t disappearing from our screens anytime soon. In fact, she’s scheduled to emerge again on NBC’s newest drama series, “The...

Ever wonder what it would be like to work for the CIA, solve national security issues and take orders from a TV star?

Well, you don’t have to join President Trump’s team to do all of this. Instead, get hired for a recurring role alongside Tea Leoni and Tim Daly on the CBS hit political drama, “MADAM SECRETARY.”

Actress CHRISTINE GARVER has done exactly that. She first came into the storyline last year, but disappeared for a bit. Now, she’s back – and ready to help the team tackle the latest global issues plaguing the White House.

Some of you will recognize Christine from her role...

It’s hard to believe that Christmas was a month ago. All the decorations are now packed up tightly, half the toys received are broken, the daily grind is back in full swing and all those original Christmas TV movies are long gone – or are they?

I have a feeling there’s one movie among all the new holiday tales that is still being saved on DVR’s everywhere (including mine). Of course, I’m referring to Melissa Joan Hart’s Christmas rom-com, “A VERY MERRY TOY STORE.”

Originally airing in December on Lifetime, Melissa stars with Mario Lopez as rival toy shop owners who reluctantly...

‘Tis the season for a good scare and nothing offers that up quite like a true-crime TV tale. Until now, these shows have delivered reenactments of serial murderers committing hardcore crimes.

Actress Drea King stars as Detective Kerns in the what-were-they-thinking episode All Brawn, No Brains. Kerns is tasked with piecing back together the scattered clues after a gang botches not just one, but many kidnappings...

I love TV shows, movies just can't compare. That being said, I haven't watched many TV shows, I'm picky and most don't appeal. (No vampires, romance shows for instance, just don't like them, most popular shows fit in those categories, but hey this is my list and my opinions, not anyone else's) Currently these are my favorite shows starting with the greatest show out there:



1. 24

(9 seasons and TV movie, 2001-2010, 2014)



24 is the best show of all time! It's easily #1, none can come even close for me ever! Agent Jack Bauer works for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) dealing with (terrorists) assassination...

There are quite a lot of awesome tv shows in production in 2017, so lots of great shows can slip through the cracks. Here are 5 under-watched shows that I thought I'd promote as damn fine viewing!


5. Fortitude


It is a little hard to describe what Fortitude is about without spoiling it, but basically it follows the weird and violent events that occur in an arctic town called Fortitude. It can get pretty gruesome, creepy and weird in this isolated little town. The plot and the characters are intriguing, and there is some beautiful cinematography capturing icy arctic landscapes.

The cast is...

I love the show of 24 and I decided to rank the my favorite characters, this time minus spoilers for those who may have not seen the show or may have not seen all of it. Here goes with the first (and obvious) favorite character:


Jack Bauer –

Where in the world do you start with Jack Bauer? First of all he is the best TV character of all time, barring no one. He suffers tragic loss and extreme pain and torture (as well as inflicting some himself) takes out the bad guys and saves the world from horrific terror attacks, all in 24 hours, time after time! He is very loyal, shows no mercy and looks...

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a popular animated show that stars 6 female ponies.

Plot

Twilight Sparkle is a student of Princess Celestia who moves to Ponyville to finally get some friends. She becomes best friends with 5 female ponies: Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie. The 6 of them learn important lessons along with Spike (Twilight's helper), the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Starlight Glimmer, and Discord.

A show about ponies learning lessons seemed like a repetitive and boring plot, but this show is oddly very special. Although the lessons may not be very interesting...

The backbone of any television show is the “character” actor. These are the men and women who you might not remember by name, but you recognize their face. And, when they do their job right – they elevate the show to another level.

One such actor who has burst onto television screens everywhere is Cory Blevins. He recently appeared as FBI Special Agent Buchholz in EPIX original comedy series, “Get Shorty,” chasing down Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd. Also the fall, Cory also joined the cast for one of the final episodes of the beloved Netflix show, “Longmire,” and one of the first...

Today you’re chasing down bad guys and tomorrow you are the bad guy. That’s the life of make-believe that every actor enjoys.

One such actor is Scott Subiono, who recently portrayed good guy DEA Agent Tony Marino leading the hunt for drug dealers in the second season of John Singleton’s FX series “Snowfall.” Set in the 80’s, the show sets forth a gritty and dangerous tale of the rise of crack cocaine in Los Angeles.

Scott also hit theaters as a bad guy out to swindle Louis Zamperini in the feature film “Unbroken: Path to Redemption,” based on Laura Hillenbrand’s bestseller...

The new original Starz drama “Vida” has been gaining momentum since launching on May 6th. Created by Tanya Saracho, the buzz for the series mainly emphasizes its Latinx focused, female-driven, queer storyline. But, it would be a shame if the solid supporting cast were to go unmentioned as part of the reason for its success.

One such member of this stellar group is actress Elena Campbell-Martinez, who shines as the neighborhood’s motherly figure and spiritual healer ‘Doña Lupe’.

Think Elena looks familiar? Well, she should considering this talented actress appeared in Clint Eastwood’s...
