Laura Prudom: 'Nikita' Is Back And Kicking More Ass Than Ever
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 1 of The CW's "Nikita," entitled "3.0." Here we go again, agents. "Nikita" is back for a (somewhat miraculous) third season, and though Division has been given a makeover, the show is still the sleek, confident, kick-ass machine we all know and love. It was clear that "3.0" was designed as an entry point for new viewers (fingers crossed for an extra million or so of them), which meant a fair amount of scene-setting and character reintroduction. Ryan Fletcher's monologue at the start of the episode gave a brief burst of backstory, but I hope we'll hear from some newcomers about how accessible they actually found the set-up in the comments. As someone who has been with the show since Season 1, I was concerned that the soft reset of the story would result in a lot of repetition, but I clearly should've given the writers more credit. The dialogue seemed smooth and the exposition was enlightening without bein ...

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 ...

CARLTON MELTON, GLITTER WIZARD, BISON BISON, WHITE MANNA (Dante's, 1 SW 3rd) If there is such a thing as a St. Johns sound, Bison Bison could be accused of embodying it. The trio evokes the North Peninsula with solid tracks of sludgy, crushing rock, rife with a sense of Northwest gothic—and one that is informed by a particularly potent fusion of hard rock elements with melodic, funky rhythms and riffs. On tracks that delve into minutes-long territory, Grant Miller delivers classically ripping guitar solos, interspersed with plaintive vocals that remind me of the fierce veneer ...

    Age 37
    The French rock band Noir Désir paid tribute to Pierce in the song "Song for JLP", from its 1996 album 666667 Club.
    More Details Hide Details Blondie paid tribute to Pierce in its song "Under the Gun", from the 1999 album No Exit. Pierce is honored by the rock star Thåström in a 2005 song recording. The World/Inferno Friendship Society also paid tribute to Pierce in their song by the same title. Mark Lanegan recorded a cover version of The Gun Club's "Carry Home", from the Miami record, on his album I'll Take Care of You. Pierce and Lanegan cowrote the song "Kimiko's Dream House" that appears on Lanegan's album Field Songs. In 2010, OFF!, a punk "supergroup" fronted by Keith Morris—a former member of Black Flag and the Circle Jerks—released a song dedicated to and named after Pierce—Morris, who also shared a house with Pierce, was responsible for suggesting "The Gun Club" band name while they were living together. At live performances, Morris has introduced the song with a description of Pierce and the relationship that he shared with the late musician, stating that Pierce was one of his best friends and that the song, "Jeffrey Lee Pierce", is a "eulogy". At a May 2012 performance at the Bell House venue in Brooklyn, New York City, Morris introduced the song by stating:
    In early 1996, he went to Japan, and right before he left, he and I were at his mom's in LA Angeles, US writing songs.
    More Details Hide Details He seemed in really good health—sometimes he wasn't in such good health, sometimes he could barely walk because he was so fucked up. When he came back from Japan, he left me a couple of messages on my answering machine. He sounded completely out of his mind, though not like he was drunk. It was strange, like he'd gone crazy; finally I got hold of someone, and she told me Jeffrey had come back, that he'd been drinking while he was gone, his liver had poisoned his system, and he was experiencing dementia. The hospital turned him away saying, there's nothing we can do for him, his liver's shut down, he's dying. After this, I get a call from him; he was up in Utah and he sounded normal. And I said, what the hell, man, everyone's saying you're going to die. And he said, they always say that. And a week later, he fell into a coma and died.
