Exclusive Crisis First Look: What's Gibson's Endgame?

We now know that Francis Gibson (Dermot Mulroney) — the schlubby, seemingly non-threatening parent chaperone on NBC's Crisis — is actually the mastermind behind the titular situation, in which a busload of schoolchildren are kidnapped and held hostage in Washington, D.C. But the question remains: Why?

Crisis' Rachael Taylor: I Hope Viewers "Love to Hate" My Character

There's not a lot of time for character development in the pilot episode of Crisis, NBC's hostage thriller that premieres Sunday. The first hour is more preoccupied with immersing viewers into the action and getting a couple of major twists out of the way than delving into the depths of its major players.

But here's what we do know: A bus of children is taken hostage by a group of highly trained criminals while on a field trip. What do the bad guys want? It's unclear. But the children's parents all hold positions of power in Washington, D.C., ranging from the CEO of a major corporation (Gillian Anderson) to the president of the United States. There's also a nearly unrecognizable Dermot Mulroney playing a shlubby parent chaperone who's an embarrassment to his daughter, but who defies expectations when it comes to the events that unfold. And in a made-for-TV coincidence, the no-nonsense FBI agent in charge of the case, Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor), is the estranged sister of Anderson's character, Meg Fitch.

On the Set: The Pressure Is on for Gillian Anderson in Crisis

There's a crisis on the set of Crisis: Although the NBC drama is filming indoors on this late-January day, the high temperature outside the Chicago set is zero degrees (and with the wind chill, it feels like 30 below). Even inside, it's frosty, and star Gillian Anderson huddles for warmth by wrapping herself in a full-length parka between takes.read more

Weekend TV in Review: Good Wife, Zombie Mania, Crisis, ESPN's Big East Requiem

Just about the best news I heard all week: CBS's renewal of the splendid The Good Wife for a sixth season, among a ton of other pick-ups. If the month or more of special-Sunday distractions (Super Bowl, Olympics, Oscars) caused you to drift away, now's a great time for "Opting Back In." Which happens to be the name of a keynote speech Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is nervously preparing for the annual American Bar Association powwow in New York City — an occasion allowing for a terrific running gag involving new Mayor Bill De Blasio (Sunday, 9/8c).

An Open Letter to New Girl: Stop Trying to Make Nick and Jess Happen!

Dear New Girl,

To paraphrase Mean Girls' queen bee Regina George: Stop trying to make Nick and Jess happen! We get it; the chemistry and tension was undeniable between the two of them over the first two seasons, but you gave in and paired them up too early. (Props to The Mindy Project for making us wait for Danny and Mindy!)

New Girl keeps Damon Wayans, Jr. for remainder of season

As soon as Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) got together, all the... read more

The Thursday Playlist: Delectably Weird Hannibal, A New Girl First Date

You can't help but get a deliciously squirmy tingle when the infamous (to the viewer, anyway) Hannibal Lecter quips, "It's nice to have an old friend for dinner" while serving tongue to his guests, including an unctuous and chatty shrink whom Lecter sizes up by coolly noting, "Your tongue is very feisty."

This scenario takes place several episodes into the midseason run of NBC's feverishly twisted, fascinatingly macabre and visually remarkable procedural-with-a-twist Hannibal (Thursday, 10:01/9:01c), by which time I was completely creeped out and thoroughly hooked. In much the same way A&E's Bates Motel introduces a younger version of Norman Bates before he had his crazy mama mummified in the cellar, Bryan Fuller's Hannibal presents the mad Dr. Lecter before his secret identity as a cannibalistic serial killer is known to anyone but his victims. He is caginess personified, taking on the role of advisor and therapist to tormented FBI profiler/consultant Will Graham (from Thomas Harris' Red Dragon). Will has an ability to project "pure empathy" and see grisly crimes from the killer's POV, which Lecter describes quite accurately as "an uncomfortable gift."
