Morgan Kelly as Bruce Lippe in the psychological thriller BLOOD HONEY. The film is currently available on VOD in Canada, and will be released in the US
on 1 February.
Morgan Kelly (Alvis Akari) and Kimberly-Sue Murray (Louella Simms) star as Elle and Tyler in the made-for-TV thriller TWISTED, about Kara (Elisabeth Harnois), who has spent months getting her boyfriend Tyler back on his feet after a turbulent time in his life. The two are planning to marry and everything is perfect until Tyler’s ex, Elle, returns from rehab and wants her old boyfriend back. Elle is sexy, outspoken, and daring (and Kara is none of those things). What starts off as one woman’s desire to hold on to her fiancé turns into a twisted game of cat and mouse, as Kara tries to survive Elle’s jealous wrath. Written by Barbara Kymlicka (who wrote TINY HOUSE OF TERROR), and directed by Philippe Gagnon, TWISTED began filming in Montreal in October. There is no word yet on when it will air.
Kelly will also be a character named Manusco in Episodes 3.3 and 3.5 of THE EXPANSE. No information is available on Manusco, but another character, Katoa Merton (Jaeden Noel), who will also appear in both those episodes, is a friend of Prax’s daughter Mei-Meng. Both Katoa and Mei were being treated by Dr. Strickland for Myers-Skelton Premature Immunosenescence on Ganymede, and the two are assumed to have been kidnapped by the doctor, and subjected to the influence of the protomolecule. One might speculate that Manusco will somehow help Prax locate Dr. Strickland and his experimental subjects. Continue reading →
Ennis Esmer had recurring roles in three TV shows in 2017. Currently, he is hacker/consultant Rich Dotcom, working for the FBI with fellow co-opted hacker Patterson (Ashley Johnson) on BLINDSPOT (that’s the show where a woman is found naked in Times Square with her body covered with prophetic tattoos). He came back to DARK MATTER this year as Wexler from the alternative universe. (Unlike other characters from that show who were darker in the altverse, Wexler was the reverse. Original Wexler was evil. Alt-Wexler was more of a practical opportunist, much like the Raza crew.) It seemed likely that we would see more of Alt-Wex, but DARK MATTER was inexplicably cancelled by SyFy.
Cindy Sampson, Jason Priestley, Jordyn Negri, Samantha Wan, Ennis Esmer, and Barry Flatman — the cast of GlobalTV’s PRIVATE EYES
Esmer is also Detective Kurtis Mazhari, the friendly cop who bends the rules when he has good reason, on GlobalTV’s PRIVATE EYES (which stars Jason Priestley as a former hockey star and Cindy Sampson as the Toronto PI who hires him as her partner.) Unlike Wexler and Rich Dotcom, Mazhari has a love interest (Zoe Chow, played by Samantha Wan). PRIVATE EYES is currently on hiatus in the middle of Season Two on Global TV in Canada, and will resume sometime in the summer of 2018, probably about the time the show will begin airing on ION-TV in the US.
All three seasons of DARK MATTER can be streamed on Netflix. BLINDSPOT airs on NBC Fridays at 8/7c. Continue reading →
KILLJOYS – Season 3 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
This hand-binding is part of the opening scene. Are Pree and Gared married now?
Dutch introduces the season finale poetically. “The universe has a memory,” she says. “That’s all time really is. Our whole life to hold in moments, the sweet and sour, the kisses and the scars, our beginnings and goodbyes, all written down in time. Recorded, so the universe will know we were here, so we won’t be forgotten. We are all made of memories.”
D’Avin buys Johnny a piece of land on Leith, 200 acres of RAC-owned ranch land with a little creek out back, complete with robot goats. (Johnny asks if there are goats, and D’Avin replies, “Johnny, they’re robot goats.”) The implication of that exchange is that real goats exist on Leith, although we have seen none of them. It does raise a question though. Exactly what would the purpose of a robot goat be? It will be interesting to find out what farming options are available for John. No livestock has ever been seen on the show, and the only visible crop has been hokk. Eating habits in The Quad are a mystery because we almost never see anybody eat anything on screen. There are peach trees on Leith (at least according to Sabine), but Johnny’s newly-acquired land did not seem to contain an orchard. Continue reading →
