TV Rundown: Sep 27 - Oct 2 | 'The Blacklist' Returns, 'Blood & Oil' Churns

The TV Rundown is back for fall! Find out all about the series premiere of ABC's "Blood & Oil" and the third season premiere of NBC's "The Blacklist"...

Blood & Oil
The premiere of ABC’s oily new sudser kicked off in the usual way, introducing viewers to the lead characters, scoping out their prospective enemies and setting the stage for the drama to come. Pilots can go one of two ways. They are either the weakest episode the series will ever have or it will knock the doors off its intended mission to hook its prey from the opening gate. Sadly for “Blood & Oil” the latter scenario turned out, not to be the case.

Movie Review: 'The Face of an Angel' (2014)

Michael Winterbottom has changed the names and kept the places for his fictionalized take on the real-life murder case of Meredith Kercher and the court prosecution that followed against Amanda Knox. Told through the eyes of Thomas (Daniel Bruhl), a director weathering a personal crisis, a strange mix of fact and fiction mingle to create a dramatic deluge that begets more questions than answers.

Fall TV's Best New Bets | CBS | 'Supergirl' & 'Angel from Hell' - Plus, a Midseason Bonus Pick

It's that time of year again, new fall programming is getting ready to begin and Eclectic Pop has picked at least two of the most promising new series from each network. Find out which of the new shows from CBS made the cut...


Supergirl
Yes, the trailer was campy and another superhero TV show might not be what television as a whole needs but this show has something few can claim to have, the perfect casting of its lead. You couldn’t ask for a better actress to play Clark Kent’s super cousin than the fantastic Melissa Benoist. When “Glee” took on the challenge of recharging its underclassmen for its fourth season, they hit gold with the casting of Benoist as Marley, the vocally talented and lovable good-girl daughter of the cafeteria lady.
