CHICAGO - Look past the cheesy carbs and b-boy poses, this shiny mo-cap reboot of cartoon juggernaut “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” offers slick entertainment that makes for a welcome surprise for middle school fare. Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.
CHICAGO – The surprisingly robust “Grimm” returns for an early series premiere tonight, August 13, 2012 with a special five-week Monday night run meant to capitalize on advertising during the Olympics and catch those who just haven’t changed the channel since they’re not used to doing so every night for the last two weeks.
CHICAGO – Fans of the NBC series “Grimm” will be happy to know that there is at least another full season of the show still to come. The freshman series has officially been renewed for a second season.
CHICAGO – NBC’s “Grimm” is far from the first show to tweak well-known fairy tales or urban legends for modern viewers. Even just this week, ABC has touted the premiere success of “Once Upon a Time,” another show that suggests that perhaps fictional creations have some real-life counterparts. The CW’s underrated “Supernatural” has been doing it for years.
CHICAGO – In our latest edition of HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: TV, we have 50 admit-two passes up for grabs to the special sneak screening of the premiere episode of NBC’s “Grimm,” which is inspired by the fairy tales!
CHICAGO – “In Treatment” is something of a TV miracle. It is a drama that focuses solely and purely on how what we say is as important as what we do. With real-time therapy sessions that play like mini-plays, “In Treatment,” the second season of which is now available on DVD, is far and away one of the best shows of the last several years. It’s a major commitment of time and emotion but it gives more than it takes.
Television Rating: 5.0/5.0
CHICAGO – Quick - What’s the best show on television right now? “Lost” has its fans but I think that show’s taken a slight dip in the new season, as has the increasingly too silly “30 Rock”. People love “Burn Notice,” “Big Love,” and “Damages,” but they’re done for the year. After Sunday, there is one clear answer. The best show on television is HBO’s “In Treatment”.
