'Perception' Cancelled In TNT Overhaul, Despite Solid Ratings


Eric Mccormack

TNT's has cancelled drama series Perception after three seasons. The show is the latest victim in Kelly Reilly's brand evolution of the channel, with Franklin & Bash also getting culled earlier this year.

Eric McCormack Rachael Leigh CookEric Mccormack [L] and Rachael Leigh Cook [R] tweeted their sadness at news of Perception's cancellation

Perception starred Will & Grace actor Eric McCormack as a talented but eccentric neuropsychiatrist hired by the FBI to assist in solving some of the most complex cases in Chicago. It was popular with viewers and although the third season was down 9% on season two, it still drew a very solid 2.8 million viewers. Perception opened its fourth season with 3.1 million viewers - a huge increase on the recent Franklin & Bash opener, which pulled in just 1.25 million.

Lifetime’s Romeo Killer Premiere Delayed Due To Legal Reasons, Then Given The Go Ahead


Eric Mccormack

Romeo Killer: The Christopher Porco Story was supposed to air this weekend on Lifetime, but due to an intervention from Porco himself, the TV movie was in danger of being delayed.

Porco said that Lifetime needed permission to use his name, this being a show that fictionalizes his murders. And, by virtue of the fact he’s making a fuss, we’re assuming it’s very much a permission not granted situation. New York state Supreme Court Judge Robert Muller sided with Porco, and ruled that the show be delayed until a late April court date can resolve the situation. "It's a sad day when a convicted murderer who has exhausted all of his appeals can convince any court to stop people from exercising their First Amendment right to talk about his crime," Lifetime spokesman Les Eisner said. Eisner got his way though, and an emergency appeal on Thursday saw permission for Romeo Killer - starring Eric Mccormack - to air Saturday and Sunday.

The Sisters Review


Bad
Films have certain advantages over stage plays - locations can shift, laws of physics need not apply, and characters can do more than stand around and talk ad nauseam. Unfortunately, no one shared this world of possibilities with the makers of The Sisters, an aggressively frustrating and ultimately nonsensical waste of time and talent.The titular Prior sisters, hyper-literate and unlikable to a one, are conveniently categorized archetypes capable of little beyond petty bickering. There's the oldest, Olga (Mary Stuart Masterson), cold, repressed, and overly rational; the middle, Marcia (Maria Bello), whose vicious unhappiness has turned her into predatory shrew; and baby Irene (Erika Christensen), the idealistic peacemaker. The family, along with brother Andrew (Nivola), a spineless placeholder, and various relatives and hangers-on, assembles regularly for festive occasions as heartwarming as a pack of coyotes fighting over a kill.The melodrama is intimate but overly full of histrionics: Marcia is trapped in an awful marriage to an equally bilious psychologist and tempted into an affair - after approximately an hour of acquaintance - with a former student of her father's (Tony Goldwyn); two different professors (one acerbic, the other puppyish) are in love with the oblivious Irene; the entire family hates Andrew's trashy fiancée, Nancy. Each conflict plays out in vicious familial attacks and endless, self-congratulatory, falsely profound dialogue.The Sisters is based on the Chekov play Three Sisters, and I will title that Problem #1: It sticks too closely to the devices of the original. In Chekov's time, an unhappy marriage was permanent, love could be so socially unacceptable it was rendered unmentionable, and repression was a legitimate way of life. In a modern setting, the confines are simply not as limiting as the characters would like to believe. Marcia makes no secret of being violently miserable in her marriage and communicates with her husband solely in hurled vitriol, and yet she stays! For no good reason! This isn't a tragic character; she's a woe-is-me-martyr, and impossible to like for it.Problem #2 is in the adaptation of the piece from a stage play to the screen. I'd guess that, in the process, Richard Alfeiri was reluctant to make any significant alterations to his original or offer many concessions to the medium, because this reads exactly like a play. That isn't a complement; these characters do nothing but talk. In a stage setting, audiences are willing to put up with florid language, but for film, the dialogue is ridiculous. Characters pack every sentence with as many 50-cent-words possible - why say "live" when "inhabit" has so many more syllables? During one (of many) heated arguments, one sister actually says to another, "You do not understand my complexities enough to analyze and categorize me!" I wish I were making that up, or that it were an anomaly. But no, they are all so pleased with themselves, with their endless babble about the "nature of their truth" that every sentence furthers the desire to slap each and every character. Hard.Probably the biggest problem with The Sisters, however, is how great a waste it is. Despite the irritating script and visuals that are so sporadically fanciful that it looks as though Arthur Allan Seidelman is discovering the effects features on Final Cut Pro and wants to show them off, the cast is uniformly stellar. Bello's Marcia is deplorable, but she acts the hell out of her; same goes for Masterson and Elizabeth Banks as the uniformly reviled Nancy. All, really, are much better than the material given, so it is unclear what possessed such a rock-sold cast to sign on to such a screenplay, but at least their presence makes the film occasionally bearable.
