Adam and Co. Are Back!

October 24th, 2014 by amyro

For viewers in the UK who have Amazon Prime accounts anyway. New episodes launch with a double bill on Friday, November 14th, to be followed by new episodes weekly until December 26th or “Boxing Day,” which is a thing people apparently do over there. We’ve got a little content backlog to roll out over the coming weeks, so check back in as the day approaches.

Summertime Adam Roundup

July 19th, 2014 by amyro

Adam AppleRipper Street is off somewhere, filming Series 3, refusing to provide us with a steady stream of Adam-related materials, so let’s check in with a bit of news and some other viewing options.

While it’s still unclear what’s happening for American fans of Homer Jackson, the British picture is filling in. The BBC1 airings will be 58 minutes long, to conform to the network’s timeslot standards, but the Amazon streaming option will be a bit more flexible. According to showrunner Richard Warlow, “Where it has changed is the flexibility that you don’t get when your prime buyer is saying you’re going out at nine o’clock and it’s going to be 58 minutes long. It’s very freeing. If we want to have an episode that’s 65 minutes long, we can. We can put that cut out and everybody can see it.” Coupled with Amazon’s airings expected to run a few months before the terrestrial option, it’s a pretty strong argument for ponying up for the service.

 

THE DIVIDE Banner Artwork

Adam can currently be seen in WeTV’s new drama based on the The Divide. Sitting comfortably with a 71 at Metacritic, it looks to be a pretty decent summertime offering, although we have to note that Adam is essentially playing the Cop’s Wife role here. As the boyfriend to the female lead, his job looks to be a sounding board and sometimes support structure/sometimes oppositional figure. And we don’t actually know how many episodes he’ll be in, so if you’re watching just for Adam, buyer beware. We’ll be posting mini-photo calls for this one.

Season 1 of The Divide runs eight episodes, Wednesday nights on WeTV. It debuted a couple of days ago with the first two episodes and appears to be re-airing tonight, but the network’s online schedule is super-buggy, so check your local listings for reruns. It’s also available for free at WeTV if your cable provider allows for such a thing, for paid streaming at Amazon Instant Video and for sale at iTunes, if you want to get caught up in time for Episode 3 on the 23rd.

A caseworker with The Innocence Initiative, Christine Rosa clashes with district attorney, Adam Page, over a 11-year-old murder case in this legal drama created by Tony Goldwyn and Richard LaGravenese.

Cast: Damon Gupton as Adam Page, Marin Ireland as Christina Rosa, Joe Anderson as Terry Kucik, Paul Schneider as Clark Rylance, Nia Long as Billie Page, Clarke Peters as Isaiah Page, Adam Rothenberg as Danny

Lastly, Adam has what we assume is a small part in James Gray’s well-received The Immigrant. Labeled “an almost flawlessly articulated example of the kind of thing we like to say they just don’t make any more: serious, adult, character-driven and impassioned” by Geoff Pevere at the Globe and Mail, it is available for streaming on Netflix. We haven’t seen it yet, but if the film interests you, keep an eye peeled for Adam’s turn as “Officer DeKeiffer.”

RIPPER STREET
Episode 02-07 (US Airdate: April 5, 2014):
“Our Betrayal, Part 1″

The pall of personal tragedy looms over the men of H Division when a very real and valuable symbol of the British Empire’s wealth arrives in the form of an uncut diamond.

A stone ‘freed’ from the diamond monopoly of De Graal by Daniel Judge, Captain Jackson’s reckless and untrustworthy elder brother.

As Jackson absorbs both the potential wealth of this gem and the personal irritation of his sibling, Reid and Flight are drawn to the plight of a local craftsman defrauded of his work and income by a sophisticated long-firm scam.

Meanwhile, Long Susan finds herself powerless to resist the ever-encroaching influence that Silas Duggan is determined to exert on her life.
