Tag: Forever (1-10 of 11)
It’s not every day that Richard Castle takes time away from Beckett to … start a support group?
In an exclusive look at a new ABC promo, Castle decides to start a meeting for the “Men at 10.” Now before you think that’s some secret code, it’s literally about the men whose shows air at 10 p.m. on ABC. And so far, that includes Richard Castle and Forever‘s Dr. Henry Morgan, who takes a very honest approach to the gathering, and… well, Castle is Castle.
That’s because the One Tree Hill star and her husband, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, live on a farm upstate filled with animals ranging from the typical (cows) to the not-so-typical (alpaca). “I’m normally in Carhartt flannel and covered in paint and sawdust and muck boots, so then I get to come into the city and I’ve gotta shave my legs and paint my nails,” Burton tells EW. “It’s a weird duality.”
On Forever, Burton’s character is a domination therapist who meets Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) when one of her clients turns up dead and she becomes the murder suspect. “I like trouble,” Burton says. “I’m a pretty square lady in real life, so if I’m going to come down off my farm and go back to work, it better be for some good trouble.”‘ READ FULL STORY

What’s in store for Norman on Bates Motel this season? — Chris
Norman may have passed the polygraph test in the season finale, but Romero won’t be off his trail for long. “Romero has closed that case,” Freddie Highmore tells me. “But in the third season, his suspicions are aroused once again by a certain incident, so that uncertainty around who Norman really is sparks off again in his mind.” I wonder if the incident has to do with the new tenant.

The third time might be the charm for Forever’s resident antiquarian.
EW has learned Jane Seymour will guest star on an upcoming episode of ABC’s freshman crime procedural Forever, playing an ex flame of Judd Hirsch’s Abe, the close confidant and adopted son of Ioan Gruffudd’s immortal doctor Henry.
Seymour will play Abraham’s (twice) ex-wife, Maureen, whom he can’t seem to stay away from him despite past proof that their sexual tension and fiery passion can be toxic. Maureen re-enters Abe’s life and tries to reignite the flames.
Seymour currently guests on Franklin & Bash as Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s character’s sex-positive mother. Her episode of Forever (Tuesdays at 10 pm) will air on ABC in November.
In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Tuesday night game plan:
DVR: The Flash (The CW): One of the hotly anticipated superhero series this fall, The Flash exists in the same universe as CW’s Arrow and follows comic book favorite Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin). Premieres Oct. 7.
Watch: Marry Me (NBC): Casey Wilson and Ken Marino make a fine couple in this new comedy, which is loosely based on Wilson’s real-life romance with the show’s creator, David Caspe. Premieres Oct. 14.
Watch: The Mindy Project (Fox): We’ve already seen Danny (Chris Messina) do a sexy striptease for Mindy (Mindy Kaling) on the season premiere, so get excited to see where that relationship goes from there.
DVR: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS): The NCIS franchise has become a verifiable conglomeration with all these spin-off in cities all over the country. This time, NCIS heads to New Orleans with Scott Bakula at the helm as Special Agent Dwayne Pride.
Watch: Sons of Anarchy (FX): This will be the last season we’ll see our beloved NorCal biker bros and it is crucial to see how Jax (Charlie Hunnam) deals with the consequences of his destructive path of vengeance after Tara’s (Maggie Siff) death.
DVR: Forever (ABC): Forever joins a long line of “deductive genius” dramas, and this show is no exception to the trend. The show stars Ioan Gruffudd as Dr. Henry Morgan, a New York City medical examiner who’s been knocking around life for over 200 years due to his immortality.
A handsome man boards the subway, choosing a seat next to a beautiful woman. They make eye contact, then look away. He says “good day” to her (in Russian), she responds in kind—and then the onslaught begins:
Woman: “How did you know I was Russian?”
Man: “Korovka. Russian chocolate. You have a smudge.”
[Woman wipes her face. There’s a pause.]
Man: “Good luck at the performance tonight.”
[She looks at him quizzically.]
Man: “Sorry. I noticed the indentations on your fingers. At first I thought violin, but the spacings are a bit too wide, and there’s no markings under your chin. So, cello.”
Woman: “How did you know I have a performance?”
Man: “Your collar has a bit of moisture. Freshly showered. So I assumed you’re either headed to work or going out on a date, and with all due respect, it would be unusual for a woman as beautiful as you to be taking the subway to a date.”
And so on. Welcome to Forever, yet another example of TV’s favorite procedural subgenre: the Deductive Genius show. READ FULL STORY
The idea of immortality has been explored in a number of ways on screens both big and small. But for Dr. Henry Morgan in ABC’s new series Forever, immortality has a few twists. For one, Henry views it as a curse, something he’s spent more than 200 years trying to cure. And then there’s the idea that Henry does technically die. He just doesn’t stay dead for long.
As a medical examiner in New York, Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) spends his days examining dead bodies and trying to find a solution for his inability to stay dead. And as viewers will see in the pilot, his years of practicing medicine and genius-like knowledge quickly get him pulled into helping a detective (Alana De La Garza) on a number of cases.
We caught up with Forever‘s creator, Matt Miller, to talk about the idea behind the show, what viewers can expect, and more.
Superheroes and fairy tales dominated the midseason lineup at ABC’s upfront presentation, with shows like Galavant and Marvel’s Agent Carter coming soon. “We may be a terrible network,” joked Jimmy Kimmel, “but we are a great birthday party for a 6-year-old.” But for fall, ABC stuck to the basics: broad comedies, police procedurals, and Shonda Rhimes, whom ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee described as the Charles Dickens of our generation. Her latest show, How to Get Away With Murder, isn’t exactly Great Expectations, but it might be the only new ABC series worth watching. Quick takes on the others follow below. READ FULL STORY
