Blacklist TV Review

by Pluggedin.som Tuesday, November 18, 2014 MPAA Rating Genre Drama, Crime Cast James Spader as Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington; Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen; Ryan Eggold as Tom Keen; Harry Lennix as Harold Cooper; Diego Kleattenhoff as Donald Ressler Channel NBC Reviewer Paul Asay Blacklist Raymond “Red” Reddington is one bad dude. He oozes felonious activity. His wardrobe (complete with black fedora) exudes fashionable evil. His I-know-ever-so-much-more-than-you attitude would make James Bond’s adversaries at Spectre prickle with jealousy. Even his nickname—Concierge of Crime—seems to channel comic book villainy. So what, pray tell, is Red doing working with the FBI? Turns out he has a list (that’d be the Blacklist, naturally) of the world’s most dangerous criminals—guys so good at being bad that the FBI doesn’t even know about them yet. The names on the list are criminal whales, Red says, and he wants to play at Ahab for a bit. But do [...]

Jane the Virgin TV Review

by Pluggedin.com Wednesday, November 12, 2014 MPAA Rating Genre Comedy Cast Gina Rodriguez as Jane Villanueva; Brett Dier as Michael; Justin Baldoni as Rafael Solano; Yael Grobglas as Petra Solano; Andrea Navedo as Xiomara Villanueva; Ivonne Coll as Alba Villanueva; Yara Martinez as Dr. Luisa Alver; Bridget Regan as Rose; Jaime Camil as Rogelio de la Vega; Priscilla Barnes as Magda; Anthony Mendez as Narrator Channel CW Reviewer Paul Asay Unexpected pregnancies can really make life chaotic—especially when you’ve never even had sex. Jane Villanueva knows the feeling. One day she’s just a normal young adult—waitress, college student, wannabe writer—the next she’s been artificially inseminated by a doctor who got her procedures mixed up. It’s a pickle for sure, especially because she and her fiancé, Michael, were waiting for sex until after their wedding day, and weren’t planning to have kids for years after that. The baby’s father, Rafael, [...]

black-ish TV Review

by Pluggedin.com Wednesday, November 12, 2014 MPAA Rating Genre Comedy Cast Anthony Anderson as Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson; Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow Johnson; Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson; Marcus Scribner as Andre Jr.; Miles Brown as Jack; Marsai Martin as Diane; Laurence Fishburne as Pops; Peter Mackenzie as Mr. Stevens; Jeff Meacham as Josh; Jacob Kemp as Kris; Deon Cole as Charlie Channel ABC Reviewer Paul Asay Andre and Rainbow Johnson love their kids. Sometimes more when they’re away from them. Andre, usually called Dre, is a vice president at an advertising agency—the first black VP in its history, in fact. (The fact that he’s VP of “urban affairs” is a sore spot for the guy, but hey, a title’s a title.) Rainbow is a skilled anesthesiologist. The two clearly have formidable, in-demand skills outside the home—skills that have taken them high up in their fields and won them a comfortable suburban life. But as soon as they walk through [...]
