Films are far more than an escape for me, it is the most expressive medium of art. It contains many permutations and combination of possibilities and I like to examine it all with a fine tooth comb and see how well they bind together. So with much enthusiasm I share with you this keen interest.


Prepare to sail into episode seven on season two of HISTORY’s Vikings with a sneak peek. This week viewers will attend two very different weddings – but who is it that ties the knot?

“Blood Eagle” - Ragnar and King Horik clash over how to dispense justice to Jarl Borg. In Wessex, King Aelle arrives and Ecbert has an eye on a new alliance.

Game of Thrones isn’t just one of the smartest, most intricate and complex shows on television right now-it is also one of the most quotable. In preparation for tonight’s season four premiere, we wanted to take a look back at season three’s greatest quotes, from the philosophically resonant, to the witheringly sarcastic, from the double entendres to the thinly veiled threats (and, in some excellent cases, completely straightforward threats). These are ten moments from season three that have stuck with us for an entire year. Here’s to a season four that is just as memorable.

In this week’s episode, viewers will be introduced to Porunn, played by Gaia Weiss (Hercules), who becomes the object of Bjorn’s affections. Below you will find a sneak peek of this week’s episode.

King Horik returns to Kattegat with a surprising proposition for Ragnar. Lagertha runs into a less than enthusiastic homecoming from her new husband. Athelstan, struggling with his own inner demons, becomes confidant to King Ecbert.

“Invasion” sees Vikings return to the topic which dominated the entire first season, England. We see Ragnar, Jarl Borg and King Henrik all preparing to sail West. Since the first episode of this season we have jumped forward 4 years. Ragnar and Aslaug now have 2 sons and another child on the way, Lagertha and Bjorn are still gone and the people are impatient to raid west. It seems that Ragnar and Floki have spent the last four years preparing for this voyage, but now the ships are ready and King Henrik is anxious to go.

It is without question the success of the Dark Knight trilogy is due to the brilliance of Christopher Nolan. Although his adamant refusal to continue directing the saga is completely understandable, it is also disheartening to the fans of the Dark Knight. In unison, Christian Bale has turned down reprising his role as Bruce Wayne. So a complete revamp is the only option, if the studios are intent on cashing in on the box office success of this trilogy.


Sorkin…finally…delivers! With the sixth installment of The Newsroom, we see an episode that captivates from start to finish, that informs and entertains us the entire time. There is no doubt in my mind, that it has much to do with the very minor attention paid to the love triangle. Thankfully, Maggie and Jim were practically obsolete, except for minor bits. Instead we got introduced to two new and more interesting characters Lonny Church (Terry Crews), the bodyguard and Jacob Habib (David Krumholtz), the psychiatrist. When I saw the preview for the episode I was baffled and intrigued to whom Terry will be playing and how he’d fit in a Sorkin script. His screen presence was far more flowing than that of other minor cast members and I guess you can credit his experience for that. The banter between both Lonny and Will and their stark contrast was rather amusing to watch. The crafty jabs they gave each other was much like that of Tyrion Lannister and Bronn from Game of Thrones. I do hope his guest starring continues deep into the series.


The long awaited coverage of the Egyptian protest and revolution was finally tackled in this weeks episode of The Newsroom. ACN has sent Eliot to report from Cairo, however very little on site reporting could be provided due to the tremendous safety concerns. The lack of coverage and usage of the same footage that all the networks are constantly streaming is frustrating the team at News Night. Dom continues to be annoyed and aggressive towards the quality of work out of his anchor Eliot, to the point where he coerces Eliot to leave his hotel and start reporting from the ground.
