Reverie S01E10 – Point Of Origin Full HD Screencaps

Reverie_S01E10_1080p_076We reach the end of our own little season 2 of Reverie, as we looked back at last year’s only run for the show.  We did so in style, though, with loads of great new full HD screencaps and some embiggened promo photos.  Some of those images were more than double the size of the earlier versions.

Along with our new high quality, 1080p screencaps from this finale episode, we have another set of absolutely huge promo photos.  We are seeing out KM UK’s Summer Of HD for 2019 with a bang!

‘Point Of Origin’ was primarily about Oliver, the ex of Alexis (played by Jessica Lu), trying to bring down Onira-Tech and the VR tech.  Monica (Kathryn) turned all TV FBI agent, putting on the body armour and wielding a torch with intent.  It looked like the Cold Case sequel we were half expecting.

We were left with a fundamentally happy ending but there was a twist.  There’s always a twist in case of a second season being commissioned.  Paul (Sendhil Ramamurthy) told Mara (Sarah Shahi) that the VR system showed her, Mara, as still in Reverie.  Was Mara still in there?  If so, then the reality we were watching was brought into question.  Could some remnant of Mara’s avatar still be running in the system as an A.I.?  Maybe, but that is hardly a thing to worry about, just turn it off.  My feeling was that the unconscious Oliver had either been put in the Reverie as a punishment (I’m looking at your Monica!), or he put himself in it during the fire and got his wires crossed with Mara’s reverie and was now stuck in there.  That’s my best guess.

All five of the promo photos we have for this episode have been supersized.  As before I have added them as extra images (6 – 10), rather then replacing the existing ones (1 – 5), to give you the choice.  Keep clicking through an image to get to the full-sized version.  And, a year on from the original air date we have nearly 100 new full HD (1080p) screencaps from the season finale of Reverie are now in the KM UK the Gallery.

At least we got to enjoy a second season (another summer) of Reverie.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – July 2019

john_finn_001_430x180If you are bored of the English weather, just wait a short while and it will change.  We’ve gone from the hottest day on record to rain the likes of which even we don’t see very often.  We try to keep thing hot and pouring in the monthly CCCC-up news round-ups of Cold Case cast members (plus a few significant others) on-going careers.  Here is July 2019.

Let’s start with a bit of news/not news/maybe news.  I could have completely missed this previously but John Finn (John Stillman in CC) is being listed as a cast member of a TV movie called Republic Of Sarah.  It is quite common for pilots of possible TV shows to be listed as TV movies prior to the switch to series.  Occasionally the not picked up to series pilots are actually released as stand-alone TV movies.  The arc of this news appears to be a pilot for a new CBS series announced in March, various cast members ‘attached’ over the coming weeks, and filming taking place late March/early April.  Fast forward a month to mid-May and the announcement the network will not be moving forward.  Now I’m seeing some updates being made to the IMDb page this month.  We should probably assume that Republic Of Sarah is not going any further but it was worth noting it’s brief existence.  For completeness the show was about a town in New Hampshire discovering it has a valuable resource in its midst and declaring itself an independent nation as a result.  Jeffrey Paul King, writer/producer on Elementary, wrote Republic Of Sarah.  Sarah Drew (Grey’s Anatomy) was the lead, the titular Sarah Cooper.  James Lesure (Las Vegas), Kirsten Nelson (Psych), and Jonathan Slavin (Better Off Ted, any excuse to mention that show).  John is listed but doesn’t have a character name.  I’m tempted to suggest it was likely to be as Sarah’s father.

In definite John news, we have another trailer, the 3rd by my count but the 2nd to others, for the space epic Ad Astra.  Brad Pitt continues to star as the astronaut looking for his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones).  We get to briefly see and hear John in this one.  The Moon features a few times too, possibly as a nod to the recent anniversary of the first Moon landings.  Watch the latest trailer HERE on YouTube.

In ‘I dunno’ news, the same Comic-Con I haven’t referred to yet in this piece, saw a trailer shown for season 10 of The Walking Dead.  John starred in the previous run.  I don’t know if John’s character will return or even if he survived season 9.  There were some big casting upheavals for the show before the previous season, which will have had an impact on the audience figures, so they may have made further changes to try and get things back on track.  However, I don’t watch the show so am far from well placed to comment.  Feel free to educate me in the comments below.

As reported here last month, the second season of FX network’s Sons Of Anarchy spin-off Mayans M.C. is due to première on the 3rd of September.  At the recent Comic-Con in San Diego attendees were able to watch a sneak peak.  Just before that a promo trailer was released which shows Danny Pino (Scotty Valens on CC) returning as Miguel Galindo.  He’s looking very sharp with his facial hair and suit.  Some may prefer he donned the biking leathers.  Each to their own.  You can see the trailer on YouTube HERE.

The September 2018 CCCC-up first mentioned that Cold Case creator Meredith Stiehm was writing the small screen adaptation of Cristina Alger’s book The Banker’s Wife.  It was ‘optioned’ (meaning a contract was in place to turn it into a TV show or film) before the book was even published!  Impressive.  Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike was said to be starring and exec producing.  Also impressive.  In the past few days it has been announced the 8-part series has been ordered for production by Amazon Studios for it’s Prime Video service.  Rosamund is no longer involved, she has another Amazon show instead, but Homeland director/producer Lesli Linka Glatter will be directing all eight episodes.  This is a reunion of sorts as Meredith was, of course, a writer and producer on Homeland.  No word yet on Rosamund’s replacement as the star or the taker of the role as the other of two women search for answers after a plane crash.  Could the people behind Cold Case and Homeland think of two great female actors to lead such a project…?

Start TV Starts CC On TV CC’s Stars Of CC

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_2_011

The other week Start TV posted a couple of pages, with videos, about Kathryn and Tracie’s starts in the business that is show.  We covered it HERE.

Last week Start TV followed-up those two articles with a piece marking their ‘Investigation Week’, which includes Cold Case being broadcast from the beginning again today (29th July).

The initial focus of the newer feature is a collection of real-life investigators.  An FBI Special Agent, Chief Of Police, marksman, Canine Handler, a coroner, and Coast Guard.  As is the underlying theme of the whole TV channel, all the people being highlighted are women.

It continues with our two favourite ladies talking about what drew them to Cold Case, and Kathryn’s experience learning from Detective Tim Bass to inform her portrayal of Lilly Rush.

Read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Kathryn’s Start Story

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_1_010

Sit down children, and then I’ll begin…

Remember the surprise selfies (selfi?) posted by Tracie back in March?  Well in case you don’t you can view that post HERE.  It was clear the photos had something to do with the new female-centric US television network Start TV, currently broadcasting Cold Case daily, and I hoped we would hear about it later.  That time has finally arrived.

Start TV has published Kathryn’s My Start Story article.  It details Kathryn’s early life performing in her family’s gospel group, The Morris Code, through her introduction to movies and getting the role of Lilly Rush in Cold Case.  There are quotes from Kathryn throughout and a couple of short video clips as companion items.

I urge you to read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Of course Tracie was there too and you can read her My Start Story HERE.

It wouldn’t be KM UK without some images and in this case we have some nice HD (720p) screencaps from the two video clips in the Gallery, and we have small versions of the videos for completeness.

Have a good weekend.

Reverie S01E07 – The Black Mandala Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e07_1080p_080So, where were we?

Oh yes, Reverie image updates as part of KM UK’s sort of annual Summer Of HD for 2019.

The last episode we looked at was number 5.  During its run in 2018, Reverie took a week off for the July 4th holiday period and Kathryn wasn’t in episode six.  All of which means we return to this after a few weeks off ourselves.

We got quite a lot of Monica Shaw in this one.  She was key to the plot after Mara (Sarah Shahi) finds a boy in a VR world who claims he is being held against his will accused of being a terrorist.  The DoD is clearly making use of the mind entering technology outside of the Onira-Tech company, without the crew’s knowledge.  Is Monica allowing this?  Can she stop it?  Does she want to?

The mandala of the title is a spiritual symbol.  The VR program uses symbols as emergency exit points if the normal methods fail.  The use of the word ‘black’ could well be a reference to secret military ‘black sites’.  Put the two together and you’ve possibly got the hint that this is a sign of the dark uses of the tech.

Nearly 130 new full HD (1080p) screencaps have been added the Gallery. And, the single promo photo (below right) we have for this episode has also been increased in size a little.
