Major Crimes Creator James Duff Calls Summer Finale Best Episode Yet

Mary McDonnell, Michael Paul Chan, G.W. Bailey

Our summer season comes to an end with what many of us believe is the best episode of Major Crimes so far. I won't go into a long explanation here about the difference between spree killers and serial killers except to say that, usually, spree killers are much more impulsive and lack an exit strategy, while serial killers mainly want to get away with it. Consider the differences between Andrew Cunanan, who buckled under stress and then murdered his way across the United States, and the Zodiac Killer, who has yet to be found.

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Backfire"

Americans like their privacy.

Yes, here we go again with another episode of Major Crimes that was written and produced before a big news story took over the front pages and, once again, I remind our viewers that the show is not about politics. I don't know whether having informers and wires and cameras everywhere is a good or a bad idea, though I will express some pity for those tasked with analyzing American e-mails: after reading the first one hundred explanations of why spouses cheat on each other, I am pretty sure you have read them all. Even sex in the Twitterverse - lit up by pictures of politicians in various states of undress — begins to seem banal after so much...overexposure. Personally, I think a nonporous wall between our public and personal lives is a good idea, and that protections afforded our privacy by the Constitution are central to American liberty. But we live in a complicated age... read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "There's No Place Like Home"

Doris Roberts and G.W. Bailey

My first order of business in previewing the next episode of Major Crimes is to thank Tim Conway, Paul Dooley, Ron Glass, Doris Roberts and Marion Ross for lifting this entry of our series onto the list of our most memorable. Our entire cast of regulars was thrilled to host these legends from, respectively, McHale's Navy and The Carol Burnett Show, Breaking Away and Grace Under Fire, Barney Miller and Firefly, Remington Steele and Everybody Loves Raymond, and Happy Days and Brooklyn Bridge. Also appearing, the dynamic Paul McCrane (of E.R. fame), as an ICE agent with a curious (one might even say horrifying) hobby.  

Now to write just a few words about our story, which revolves around an all-too-familiar aspect of an individual's identity. To state the obvious (I am a television writer, after all!), people change... read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "The Deep End"

Kearran Giovanni, G.W. Bailey

When we began breaking stories around the theme of identity this season, no one ever thought we would be plumbing such dark and disturbing places inside the collective unconscious. Yet our next episode of MAJOR CRIMES dives further into the bottomless waters of the human psyche than we have ever gone before, sinking quickly past the (relatively) more common sins of murder, racial prejudice ...

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Rules of Engagement"

Mary McDonnell

In the seventh episode of our summer long examination of identity, we actively consider that oldest of old saws, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." We are usually taught this elemental lesson in judgment when we're very young, and (for many) it begins the effort to hone the native suspicion of human nature. There are too many examples of how people have been led astray by appearances to repeat them here, but one should not have to go back very far in American history to locate tragic mistakes that occur when people form false impressions based entirely on semblance. But Major Crimes is only an hour drama on television, and not a civics lesson; many of the questions we ask have no answers... read more

The Face Host Nigel Barker: And the Winner Is ...

Nigel Barker

Previously on The Face: Let's flash back in time! You met our three supermodel coaches; queen of posing Coco Rocha, blonde bombshell Karolina Kurkova and the legendary Naomi Campbell. You saw them in action: modeling, coaching and strategizing.  Each week our coaches taught and guided the girls through their test-shoot challenges on how to pose, strut the runway, shoot a TV commercial, walk the red carpet, be a brand ambassador and more.  Along the way there were experts and celebrities in the field bestowing their Face wisdom on aspiring ladies. Coveted jobs in the industry were awarded to the team and model that the individual clients from W Magazine, Marshalls, Kleinfelds to Cosabella all personally chose.

The Face's Nigel Barker: Next Week's Finale Will Take Your Breath Away

Nigel Barker

Previously on The Face: Naomi's reaction sent Sandra on a tirade during the Christian Louboutin test shoot, inspiring our supermodel to put the rookie in her place.  In the OpenSky campaign, Team Coco tried to get Margaux to speak up, while Team Naomi attempted to win for a 4th time in a row but Team Karolina was having none of that, as they managed to break Team Naomi's winning streak. Meanwhile Margaux and Sandra were put up for elimination and Sandra's out-of-control behavior finally caught up with her.

This week on The Face we kicked off with asking our ladies the public's favorite tabloid question "What's in your bag?" for the test shoot, hosted by Karolina and US Weekly's Jennifer Peros. read more

The Face's Nigel Barker on This Week's Supermodel Rumble!

Nigel Barker

Previously on Oxygen's The Face, some of our aspiring models got down in Coco's choreography test shoot... while others refused to give up.  In the campaign Team Coco and Team Karolina tried to spring ahead but fell short, Team Naomi won for the 3rd time in a row yet quickly proved that winning is only half the battle. Back in the elimination room Naomi sent home Karolina's girl Madeleine and saved Coco's girl Stephanie. 

This week we got straight to business — shoe business that is... read more

The Face Host Nigel Barker: "Naomi Ruled Supreme in the Elimination Room"

Nigel Barker

Previously on The Face, our models went all out in Karolina's quick-change test shoot and then hit the runway in couture bridal gowns where, for some, strutting their stuff looked easier than it was.  Against all odds, Team Naomi secured their second win in a row while Team Coco said goodbye to not only one, but two of their girls.
