12 Things 'Now And Then' Taught Us About Womanhood, 20 Years Later
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Samantha, Roberta, Chrissy and Teeny. To many women who grew up during the '90s, these four names immediately conjure up images of the above movie poster, first kisses and the nostalgia of childhood best friendship. When it comes to magnum opuses of friendship, men have 1986's "Stand by Me." Women have the 1995 cult classic "Now and Then." Though it was initially panned by critics, the movie about four young women coming of age during the summer of 1970 became beloved by a generation of young women in the mid-'90s. I for one owned it on VHS and watched it more times than I can remember, always rewinding and watching again during the scene where young Roberta (Christina Ricci) and Scott Wormer (Devon Sawa, a.k.a. your imaginary childhood boyfriend) share an awkward first kiss. The movie's opening shows Demi Moore as grown-up Samantha, driving back to her hometown in Indiana, with a car full of cigarette butts and cassette tapes. "Thomas Wolfe once said, 'You can't go home again. ...

'Nikita' Star Talks New 'Euro Trip'-Style Webseries
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On August 15, The CW launched CW Seed, a digital studio focused on developing original series on the Web, with the goal of establishing projects that can ideally be ported over to the broadcast network if they connect with an audience. It's a strategy that's worked well for shows like Lisa Kudrow's "Web Therapy" on Showtime and Adult Swim's "Childrens Hospital," and CW Seed has launched with a diverse array of comedies, like the third season of critically-acclaimed "Husbands"; globetrotting "Backpackers" starring "Nikita's" Dillon Casey; "The P.E.T. Squad Files" produced by "Heroes'" Milo Ventimiglia; and animated "Gallery Mallory," which will feature guest voices from CW stars like Misha Collins, Justin Hartley and Kat Graham. In an attempt to get over a serious case of cold feet, "Backpackers" finds recently engaged Ryan (Noah Reid) and Beth (Meghan Heffern) embarking on separate European adventures leading up to their wedding. While traveling they are free to act si ...

Laura Prudom: Can 'Sam' Be Saved?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 20 of The CW's "Nikita," titled "High-Value Target." Although Division has already suffered through its "Tipping Point," it wasn't until "High-Value Target" that our heroes truly found ourselves hanging off the edge of a cliff with the president holding the only rope. Everything could've gone explosively wrong this week, but ironically, Amanda's megalomaniacal genius was what earned Team Nikita their freedom. Our resident HBIC apparently wanted to keep Nikita and Michael alive "for our plan to work" (ominous!) but her escape -- along with a heartfelt talk from Alex -- may have unearthed a little of Owen in Sam, allowing him to do Nikita a solid and destroy the troublesome black box, which prompted the president to call off her kill team. Now, the Superfriends have their well-earned pardon, but before they can retire to a tropical island, Amanda's still on the loose, and even worse, she's apparently joined ...

Laura Prudom: 'Not Everyone Can Be Saved'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 18 of The CW's "Nikita," titled "Broken Home." Welcome back, agents. Apologies for my unintended hiatus from recapping -- other Friday work commitments unforgivably diverted my attention, but I'll admit that I have enjoyed being able to watch the show from a fan's perspective for the past eight episodes. Although Season 3's earlier entries were more self-contained, to enable new viewers to jump on board, I'd argue that the show has been on an unbroken hot streak since "Intersection," raising the stakes and ramping up the action with each new installment. Amanda's nefarious schemes have been simmering under the surface for some time now, but "Tipping Point" and "Masks" truly demonstrated the extent of the damage our favorite villainess has already wrought, first causing Alex to shoot Ryan and then prompting Owen -- or "Sam" -- to hand Nikita over to her nemesis without a second thought. But it wasn't until th ...

SPOILER ALERT: Lyndsy Fonseca On Alex's Shocking Actions
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Spoiler Alert: Do not read on unless you have seen "Nikita" Season 3, Episode 16, titled "Tipping Point." Did you see that coming, "Nikita" fans? After Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillion Casey) spent this week's episode searching for mutineers inside Division, Rachel's (Jessica Camacho) careless mention of reaching a "tipping point" during her interrogation revealed that Alex herself was involved in the plot, leading her to shoot Ryan (Noah Bean) to cover her tracks. Now, Ryan is in a coma, and it appears that despite her protestations, Amanda (Melinda Clarke) did do something to Alex while our troubled heroine was imprisoned in South Ossetia, somehow subconsciously linking her dissatisfaction with Division to her memories of being sold into the sex trade. The Huffington Post caught up with Lyndsy Fonseca via phone to find out what's next for Alex after her betrayal, how her secret will affect her relationships with Sean and Nikita (Maggie Q), what else Amanda has ...

Maggie Q Talks 'Nikita' And Her Work With PETA
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When she's not saving the country as a kick-ass spy on The CW's "Nikita" (Fridays at 8 p.m. EST) Maggie Q supporting many charities that promote conservation, healthy living and the protection of animals. The actress has once again partnered with PETA for a campaign that encourages people to be aware of the impact their diets can have on the environment. The Huffington Post spoke to Q about the campaign, how people can make the switch to vegetarianism and what's coming up for her titular character on "Nikita" -- both personally and professionally -- as Season 3 progresses. You and Shane [West] have been doing such intense, emotional work on "Nikita" this season. How is their relationship going to evolve as Michael continues to struggle with the loss of his hand? It’s so funny because we like to call them "adult problems" that we create for the two of them. So it’s never like “Someone cheated on someone,” or stupid stuff that normally happens on TV. In their world, li ...

'Nikita': Devon Sawa Previews What's Next For Owen
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Nikita" Season 3 has already proven eventful, with Team Nikita back inside Division's walls, Michael (Shane West) and Nikita (Maggie Q) engaged, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) relapsing into drug addiction and, most recently, the loss of Michael's hand -- all in the first eight episodes. This season has also introduced Devon Sawa as a series regular, and luckily for fans of the troubled Cleaner-turned-rogue, we'll be seeing a lot more of him as the year progresses. HuffPost TV caught up with Sawa via phone to discuss what's coming up for Owen, his chemistry with Nikita (and Alex), and how much of an issue his amnesia will be in upcoming episodes. This week's episode sees Owen and Nikita out in the field. What else can you preview about it? Michael, because of this situation with his hand and him learning to deal with that and deal with his new way of life, steps back and takes over Division. He coaches Owen because Owen is not used to working with a partner. He’s not good at t ...

Laura Prudom: 'Nikita': The One Problem Michael Can't Solve
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episodes 7 and 8 of The CW's "Nikita," titled "Intersection" and "Aftermath." Just when you thought "Nikita" couldn't raise the stakes any higher, the show went and pulled a Luke Skywalker on poor Michael. Admittedly, I was spoiled for that shocking ending (a hazard of the job), but even knowing that it was coming, a large part of me truly couldn't believe that the show would go so far with such a painfully permanent disfigurement -- proof that the series is as bold and unpredictable as ever. Since life got in the way of last week's recap, I'll cover both "Intersection" and "Aftermath" here, which seems fitting, as the two episodes seem very much like two halves of a whole. Last week, the looming threat of Amanda not only drove Birkhoff and Sonya to the edge -- risking Sonya's life in an attempt to deactivate her kill chip -- it also saw Alex admitting her relapse to Nikita and the rest of the team, revealed ...

Laura Prudom: A Presidential Threat Jeopardizes Division's Future In 'Nikita'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 5 of The CW's "Nikita," titled "The Sword's Edge." Even after a two-week break and a shift into a new (old) timeslot, "Nikita" didn't miss a beat with this week's stellar installment, proving that the creative team hasn't lost the magic formula that made Season 2 (and the first few episodes of Season 3) so epic. It's hard to believe we're only on Episode 5 when so much has happened since the premiere, and "The Sword's Edge" seemed like a particularly meaty episode. Most importantly, Ryan finally came clean with the team about the President's threat towards Division, admitting that one wrong move (or public embarrassment) would result in total annihilation. It's a pity that Fletch felt compelled to hide the truth from them (and thus damage their trust in him) in the first place, but it was a conversation that the gang sorely needed to have, and I'm thrilled that the show didn't drag out that secret unnecessari ...

Laura Prudom: Owen Returns And Amanda Makes Her Move In 'Nikita'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 4 of The CW's "Nikita," titled "Consequences." Since things hit a bit of a lull with last week's solid but unspectacular "True Believer," it was great to see "Nikita" back on form with "Consequences," which started at sixty and only accelerated from there. Having Owen or Amanda return separately would've been thrilling enough, but when put together in one episode, the story felt like a shot of adrenaline right to the heart. When we weren't witnessing spectacular action scenes, we were being drawn deeper into Amanda's web of intrigue, wondering what our favorite sociopath might want with Owen and why Ari was so against the idea of taking him along with them. It was great to see that Amanda was still as commanding (or terrifying) as ever -- lucid enough to be an intimidating leader for her army of recruits, but clearly unhinged enough to be wholly focused on "teaching" Nikita some valuable lessons in the ar ...

Laura Prudom: 5 Reasons Why 'Nikita' Season 3 Is Great For Both Fans & Newcomers
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Few shows manage to evolve as consistently and creatively as "Nikita" (Season 3 premieres Fri., Oct. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW). It's tempting for any series to find a formula that works and drive it into the ground, but the cast and creative team of "Nikita" are constantly pushing themselves, both in terms of creating a cinematic show on a CW budget, and in finding new ways to keep their small but loyal audience engaged. While The CW passed up the chance to grow "Nikita's" young audience by pairing it with the tonally similar "Arrow" (which has proven to be a bona fide smash hit for the network), and is instead keeping it anchored on Friday with "America's Next Top Model" as its lead in, which will do it no favors, showrunner Craig Silverstein and his team have certainly done their part to make the new season accessible for curious newcomers. Though the show has by no means jettisoned all the things that made it successful in the first two seasons, "Nikita's" mythology ...
