‘Alcatraz’ Season 1, Episode 10: ‘Clarence Montgomery’ Recap

After the rain-delayed Daytona 500 pushed Alcatraz off schedule for a week, we were treated to a double-header with ‘The Ames Bros.‘ and ‘Sonny Burnett‘ – largely because the events in the former tied loosely into the latter. And since ‘Clarence Montgomery’ is more of the typical stand-alone episode, with a small hint at the larger picture sprinkled about, Fox rightly thought it would cause less confusion to air it later.

The episode begins with the titular inmate, Clarence Montgomery (Mahershala Ali, Alphas) arriving at a silent auction and chatting up a comely young lady by the name Megan Palmer (Christine Chatelain). Soon after the two exchange pleasantries, they are carousing on a golf course in the middle of the night, and Clarence is telling Megan he’s bought her a ...

Riese: Kingdom Falling – Season 1

Stars: Christine Chatelain, Tundra, Amanda Tapping, Sharon Taylor, Ben Cotton, Patrick Gilmore | Created by Ryan Copple, Kaleena Kiff

The first chapter of five episodes originally went online on the creators’ website and YouTube during the fall of 2009 under the name Riese: The Series; its success led to the creation of a second chapter and drew the attention of Syfy who bought the broadcast rights, recut, rearranged and renamed the existing episodes, added new footage and hired Stargate and Sanctuary actress Amanda Tapping as narrator. Syfy started airing the renamed Riese: Kingdom Falling from October 2010.

Riese: Kingdom Falling takes place in Eleysia, a dying kingdom where distrust and anxiety have clouded people’s minds, causing a regression into primitive ways of thinking. Rituals and mythology have resurged,

‘Riese’ SyFy Promo Getting Us Pumped for Next Week

Riese is finally coming back online next week and the early promos (above) are getting us fired up again. Fans rumbled a bit when sci-fi Riese was abruptly taken offline during its first release last fall. In the puzzling game of online distribution, it’s something many series creators have come to accept as part of the web series territory. Having just signed an international distribution and sales deal with Fireworks, creators Ryan Copple and Kaleena Kiff had to pull it down to allow for a deal with SyFy to go through. Now the 10-episode steampunk inspired drama heads to SyFy.com as Riese: Kingdom Falling starting Tuesday October 26, with new episodes out every Tuesday and Thursday. SyFy was a natural fit for Riese, with its cast of Sanctuary and Battlestar Galactica vets like Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary), Christine Chatelain (The Bone Collector); Sharon Taylor (Stargate Universe); Ben Cotton (Harper

The critically acclaimed Riese: Kingdom Falling is distributed by Fireworks International, the television and digital distribution arm of ContentFilm plc. Each episode runs approximately seven to eight minutes.

‘Riese: Kingdom Falling’ Debuts on Syfy October 26

Cory Doctorow and the rest of the Boing Boing crew are wearing frock coats and derbies and all ran-tan in celebratory preparation for the upcoming premiere of Riese: Kingdom Falling. The retooled, steampunk original web series debuts on Syfy.com Tuesday, October 26. Riese's initial run wasn't long for the internet. The series was released in late 2009 by creators Ryan Copple and Kaleena Kiff as an alternate-reality-game-slash-web-series. The duo partnered with UK-based digital distributor, Fireworks four months later. Copple and Kiff then took down the series per a request from Fireworks in the hopes that some type of moneyed distribution or development deal would follow. Two months later, they signed a deal. A $200,000 production budget put to very good use, a compelling fantasy-infused storyline, and a host of Hollywood talent - including Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary), Christine Chatelain (The Bone Collector); Sharon Taylor (Stargate Universe), Ben Cotton (Harper's Island), Allison Mack

Fringe 2.20 "Northwest Passage" Review

After last night's video review of Fringe's episode "Northwest Passage," I've let the episode stew in my brain a bit. I have to say, not much new about the episode has popped up to me. I still feel the same way about Peter's dynamic with the sheriff, who was absolutely the best one-off guest star the series has had thus far. Martha Plimpton really nailed it. Christine Chatelain, who played the ill-fated waitress Krista, was equally endearing, though her death seemed an inevitability after the first minute of the episode.

The disjointed nature of the episode still gets to me, though. Don't get me wrong, Peter's solo case was a great move for the show to keep the procedural element present but fresh, but it would have helped if the procedural actually made sense. Instead, we got absolutely no connection between Newton and the guy who claimed to be

Episode Recap: Fringe - 2.21: Northwest Passage

  • TVStar
In a small, non-descript diner in the middle of the Pacific Northwest, a pretty waitress asks Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) where he’s from. After a pause, he smiles and says, "Technically, I'm from no place you've ever heard of, but let's just say Boston." After chatting him up a bit more, the waitress, Krista (Christine Chatelain) promises to swing by Peter’s hotel with a CD. She never makes it. The next morning, Peter finds himself in the middle of the investigation into her disappearance and ultimate murder. Peter plays it cool when the local Sheriff, Ann Mathis (Martha Plimpton), catches on that he knows more than he’s letting on, and that he’s on the run. Peter uses his FBI credentials to cover, but when the state of the body reminds him of the brain-snatching surgeries surrounding Thomas Jerome Newton (Sebastian Roche), he’s forced to call

Discover 'Riese'

Since web series enjoy a lot of popularity these days, why not talk about another one? This time, we'll be hearing about a Canadian fantasy web series called Riese.

Since I don't want to describe the synopsis in my own words, I'll just leave it to the creators' words. Ready? Here's the description.

Riese is a world of moral ambiguity and political intrigue. A decimated land populated by characters from dreams and nightmares. Loyalties are ever in question, suspicion in the minds of all. The realm, however, was not always so cruel. Everything began with a peaceful nation called Eleysia.

The Kingdom of the Wolf, Eleysia was once prosperous due largely to the influence of Empress Kara and Emperor Ulric. This all changed when a coup d’etat, orchestrated from the shadows by a religious cult, brought about a total regime change.

Taking the throne was Amara (Sharon Taylor), the Empress’s cousin.

Allison Mack, Alessandro Juliani Help 'Riese' Point TV in New Direction

When the Syfy show Sanctuary first started out, it did so as a made-for-the-web, paid downloadable series, sans network. The Vancouver-produced program, created by writer/producer Damon Kindler and exec produced by 'Stargate' veteran Amanda Tapping (also the show's star), generated plenty of positive buzz across the Interwebs, and before long Syfy (then Sci Fi Channel) came a-calling.

Some argued that the producers had "sold out" to a network, abandoning the pioneering spirit which they had first embraced…while others quickly realized that the model of creating a hit on the web might just be one way for new projects to get the attention of the old media guard. They were right, and it did.

Sanctuary was just the first salvo, it seems. The current economic downturn, combined with a strengthening Canadian dollar, may have slowed production in Vancouver, but it's galvanized the city's stalwart journeyman industry, forging it from
