A New Leaf – Olive Signature

Filtered through her experience as an unequalled comic performer, writer-director Elaine May scores a bulls-eye with this grossly underappreciated gem, fashioned in a style that could be called ‘black comedy lite.’ And that’s the release version mangled by the producer. What might it have been if May had been allowed to finish her director’s cut?

Once Upon a Time: If This Theory Is True, Henry's Family Tree Is About to Get Very Complicated

Once Upon a Time really threw us for a loop during season seven's episode "A Pirate's Life." Not only does it reveal that Hook and Emma are expecting a baby, but it also reveals that the Hook from Hyperion Heights isn't exactly who we thought he was. He's actually the Hook we met in the Wish Realm last season! After Henry enlists help from his mom and stepdad in the Enchanted Forest flashback, the heroic trio is met with some difficulties when the gray-headed, drunken Hook teams up with Lady Tremaine. With a magic potion, he is made to look like the Hook we all know and love in an effort to win the affection of Emma.

Letter: Benjamin Whitrow in After Henry

Related: Benjamin Whitrow obituary

In addition to his stage, TV and film work, Benjamin Whitrow made a significant contribution to the popular BBC Radio 4 sitcom After Henry, written by Simon Brett.

Whitrow played Russell, the gay owner of the secondhand bookshop where Sarah works. He proves to be a sympathetic and wise friend as he listens to Sarah’s accounts of her problems with her mother and her daughter, who both live in the family home. The series has recently resurfaced on Radio 4 Extra.

8 Theories We Have About the Once Upon a Time Finale Based on the Pictures

Once Upon a Time's two-hour long season six finale (and possible series finale) is days away, and emotions are heightened. Now that the Black Fairy's dark curse has hit Storybrooke, some of our favorite characters are in grave danger, especially the Savior. After Henry wakes up from the curse, he finds that the beloved town has been turned upside down: the Black Fairy is the new mayor and Emma is stuck in a mental hospital. As he tries to help his mom regain her memory and make her believe again, the rest of the gang is trapped in a crumbling Fairy Tale Land, trying to find a way back to their loved ones before the final battle. Even though Jennifer Morrison confirmed she's leaving the show at the end of this season, these stills don't seem to give too much away about the fate of her character. Edward Kitsis and

The Flash Season 2 Episode 23 Review – ‘The Race of His Life’

Jessie Robertson reviews the season 2 finale of The Flash

Run, Barry, Run!

We’ve heard that slogan all throughout this show, “Run, Barry, Run”, both slyly acknowledging his superhero identity while urging him forward on his superheroic quest. 2 episodes back, there was a very interesting slogan used when Barry was inside the Speed Force: “Sit, Barry, Sit.” In that somewhat introspective episode, Barry dealt with something that had nagged at him for far too long; the loss of his mother and his inability to stop it. It was a sentimental tear jerker. Tonight’s finale ending pretty much undoes all of what came before and I don’t think it sits very well with me. But, let’s not skip ahead yet:

After Henry’s death last week, Barry is gripped by sadness; he doesn’t even want to exchange pleasantries with the Flash team, just get down to business.

10 Failed Faux Friends Shows

May 6th marks the ten-year anniversary of the Friends series finale. That night, over 52 million people tuned in to find out how it would all end. Would Ross finally get together with Rachel? Would female characters ever stop moving to Paris when their shows drew to a close? Who actually lived in Rachel and Monica’s apartment? Would coffee ever taste the same again? While we got most of those answers, we were left with a bitter taste in our mouths. Our best friends of the past 10 years left us feeling lonely. Knowing it was time for us to change the channel, the networks rushed to fill the void. NBC tossed out a few post-Friends options that failed to capture our hearts while ABC, Fox and CBS attempted to mix up the template with a few different offerings.

Prunella Scales suffering from 'a sort of mild Alzheimer's'

Husband of Fawlty Towers star, actor Timothy West, talks about wife's condition in a More4 documentary

Actor Timothy West has told how his wife, Fawlty Towers star Prunella Scales, has been suffering from "a sort of mild Alzheimer's".

Stage and screen actor West, 79, talks about Scales' condition in a new More4 documentary, Grand Canal Journeys.

The actress, now 81, is best known for her role as Basil Fawlty's wife Sybil in the comedy Fawlty Towers but has continued to notch up screen roles.

West, who last year appeared in Coronation Street and has since joined EastEnders, tells the programme, which is broadcast later this month, that Scales suffers from "a sort of mild Alzheimer's", the Radio Times said.

The couple have been navigating Britain's canals on a slow boat ever since they first sparked a passion for the hobby when they borrowed a friend's boat for a fortnight in the 1970s.

Mad Men 6.5 Review: “The Flood”

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

It’s always apparent, when watching Mad Men, how much the drama draws from its setting. This is a period piece, no matter how effectively the writers enrich our characters and focus on their own personal triumphs and failures. Matthew Weiner has often cited his desire to keep the show character driven while the backdrop just unfolds around them, but as is the case in real life, the political and cultural atmosphere in which our characters exist deeply shapes their lives.

“The Flood” brings history to the forefront, as did “The Grown Ups” back in Season 3 where we watched the Mad Men world stunned and hunched around TV sets, all the while their lives continuing around them, unable to stop. That episode played with the Hitchcockian device of showing life go on, oblivious, after a terrible event. Margaret’s sad wedding set amidst the tragedy was

Once Upon A Time season 2 episode 20: The Evil Queen

Review Kylie Peters 29 Apr 2013 - 07:35

Once Upon A Time goes back to its roots with a Regina-focused episode. Here's Kylie's review of The Evil Queen...

This review contains spoilers.

2.20 The Evil Queen

A long string of tangents and incidental plotlines have left Once hurtling unprepared toward its season finale. The Evil Queen brings it back to the season’s roots, and it’s such a big task it takes the whole hour to do it. The result is a low-key episode that draws us back into neglected plotlines in preparation for their future development. On one hand, it’s irritating to again have to go over the old issues about Regina’s redemption, Henry’s love/hate relationship with her, and the complexities of returning to the Enchanted Forest—a rehash necessitated by the fact that these issues have been peripheral or absent for so long, they need to reassert their dominance.

Being Human Review: Living In A Box

  • TVfanatic
"(Dead) Girls Just Want to Have Fun" was a turning point episode. Not one that broke any new ground in itself, but it set the stage for the rest of Being Human season 3. I think it did a pretty smash up job, manging to entertain my supernatural-starved brain along the way.

How great was it to see Sally in new clothes? Her hug with Aidan was epic. As usual, it brought tears to my eyes. Happily, she did bring Stevie and Nick along on her life raft out of Limbo, but not attached to her in any way. They were able to move on and out her life to find their own happiness.

Sally just wanted to live. Immediately! But getting a boyfriend her first night back in her body? Not only was that unfair to the rest of the female species, it was ridiculous. I mean, geez, let her live a little,
