Shyamalan's 'Glass' is Engaging Almost Until the End

MOVIE REVIEW
I don’t think anyone will deny that M. Night Shyamalan is a great storyteller. He initially proved that with the release of The Sixth Sense. The symbolism of the color red, the odd scenes that made very little sense until the end of the movie and of course, the amazing twist that nobody saw coming. That incredible twist has almost been the director’s undoing. Since 1999, not one of his other movie’s endings have had the same impact, but he continues to try.

In 2000, Mr. Shyamalan hoped that lightening would strike twice with Unbreakable which also starred Bruce Willis.

Comedians Shine in ‘Kirstie’

The cast of TV Land’s new original 
sitcom “Kirstie,” premiering Wednesday, 
December 4th at 10pm ET/PT. 
(L-R) Michael Richards, Rhea Perlman,
Kirstie Alley and Eric Petersen

Kirstie Alley has had her ups and downs over the years from her start as a Vulcan in the Star Trek II movie to her most recent stint on Dancing with the Stars where she proved that she is still well-liked. This week she unveils a new character that was tailor-made for the actress in the new sitcom, “Kirstie” which premieres Wednesday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. on the TVLand network.

The Emmy® Award-winner Alley portrays successful Broadway star Madison Banks who has been in the limelight so long that she doesn’t know how to relate to “everyday” people. That is about to change as she meets Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up for adoption, for the very first time. Arlo’s adopted mother has recently passed away and he became curious about finding his birth mom. Helping Madison get over this shock is her personal assistant, Thelma (“Cheers” co-star Rhea Perlman) and limo driver Frank (“Seinfeld’s” Michael Richards). In the pilot episode, the cast also featured Gilles Marini as Madison’s personal chef, but must have been dropped after the initial episode as he isn’t seen or mentioned in the subsequent episodes.
