'Camelot' Hunk Peter Mooney on Sword Fighting, Love Triangles and Leather Pants

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Sep 26th 2011 2:00PM
peter mooney, camelotHave you been watching 'Camelot'? If not, you're missing out. The epic series premiered in mid-September, and it over-delivers on its promise of sexy medieval tales. Even if you think you know all there is to know about the famous Arthurian legend, the series re-imagines it with an intriguing new perspective.

'Camelot' boasts an all-star cast including Joseph Fiennes ('Shakespeare in Love'), Bond Girl Eva Green ('Casino Royale') and Jamie Campbell Bower ('The Twilight Saga') as King Arthur. Canadian up-and-comer Peter Mooney co-stars as Arthur's loyal brother Kay.

AOL TV caught up with Mooney while he was driving to pick his Dad up from the airport (awww). We chatted about what makes this 'Camelot' so different, his newfound appreciation for leather pants and the inevitable 'Game of Thrones' comparisons.

'FlashForward' - 'The Garden of Forking Paths' Recap

(S01E17) This show just keeps twisting and turning. Every time I think we've found a path to walk along for awhile, it ends, forks and twists back around so much that we don't even know if we're going in the same direction.

Facing the Future on 'FlashForward' (VIDEO)

Facing the Future on 'FlashForward'Can you change the future? That's the question on 'FlashForward' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC). The characters on the show have already seen into their futures. And for one of them -- Demetri (John Cho) -- moving forward means death.

'FlashForward' - 'Let No Man Put Asunder' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 15th 2010 11:07PM
'FlashForward' - 'Let No Man Put Asunder'(S01E16) Well, I'm going to have to take serious issue with at least one of the plot threads that went down in this episode, but we'll get to that in a bit. For the first time since 'FlashForward' came back, we knew what day it was: three days before March 15, when Demetri is supposed to die.

Some nice plot threads were woven together, which should make for some interesting drama as we continue hurtling toward our April 29 deadline. It was nice to see Aaron Stark pulled back into the saga, along with a continued focus on Jericho. I still haven't figured out how they're connected to everything just yet, but it should be fun watching Stark try and find out.

The enigmatic Dyson Frost surprised me by taking a far more active and present role in the events of the episode than I would have ever expected. I was anticipating this mysterious shadowy figure making cryptic statements in the background to confound and frustrate Mark, and us. I couldn't have been more wrong.

'FlashForward' - 'Queen Sacrifice' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 9th 2010 2:32AM
Christine Woods, 'FlashForward'(S01E15) After reading that title, I got out my chess board to watch this episode. While amateur players tend to strive to protect their queens, experts know that sometimes the best strategic move is a queen sacrifice. Is that idea what 'FlashForward' was going to be exploring this week, or is it just Aaron selling all his old Queen LPs to finance his crusade against Jericho?

It's a bit of a blow for me to find out that the characters won't be reaching their April 29 flashforward moments on the April 29 episode. I was looking forward to the synchronicity, and it at least gave me hope that I would know what day it was in the show for a moment. That hiatus has shifted things back, and now we don't know when the characters will meet their dates with destiny.

What we do know is that while Mark seems to be taking big steps toward helping his flashforward come true by moving out of the house, at least one major character seems to be doing everything in his power to thwart his.

'FlashForward' - 'Better Angels' Recap

'FlashForward' - 'Better Angels'
(S01E14)
With this week's episode, 'FlashForward' started to remind me a little of some of the more intriguing moments early on in 'Lost.' It's a risky comparison to find itself in, because 'Lost' is poised to be one of the greatest long-form narratives in the history of television.

Plus, with a series name that reminds people of one element of 'Lost,' even if the book that 'FlashForward' was based on did precede the island mystery saga, and with Dominic Monaghan and Sonya Walger in the cast, does it really need to keep reminding people of a show it probably can't stand neck-and-neck with?

Regardless, though, once again 'FlashForward' took some important steps forward in its narrative, while Mark continued taking stupid steps backwards because ... well, he is still Mark Benford.

How FlashForward Got Its Act Together and Put on a Good Show

'FlashForward' Cast
Fans of 'V' should be worrying right about now. With all the promotion ABC has put behind their re-toolings of both 'FlashForward' and 'V,' it's not very encouraging that 'FlashForward returned to even lower numbers than when it left, before quickly slipping even lower to its worst ratings yet.

The real question is why. Did no one have faith that ABC could turn the show around and get it back on track? When did we become so cynical? Plenty of television series have gone through rough starting periods before turning into great shows. I'm not saying 'FlashForward' is suddenly the greatest show on television, but it's vastly improved over its slow and meandering first half.

The two-hour mid-season premiere was epic and fantastic, so I wanted to wait until after the second episode to see how the new 'FlashForward' was going to look. While it was scaled back to the more personal stories again, I again felt that sense of foreboding and tense anticipation that a premise like this should have.

'FlashForward' - 'Blowback' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 26th 2010 3:45AM
Gabrielle Union(S01E13) While last week's mid-season premiere dived right into the mysteries behind the blackouts, revealing new secrets about Simon, as well as the missing chunks of Mark's vision, the series turned its attention to the more emotional stories this week. Mark continued working with Lloyd to piece together as much as he can about their shared vision, but it was Aaron and Demetri's futures that took center stage.

We even updated the status of Janis' ongoing attempt to ensure her vision of herself very pregnant does indeed come true. But while much of the first half of the season seemed to get mired in these personal stories, to the detriment of the overall suspense, everything is coming together so much cleaner now. I only hope it's not too late.

Review: FlashForward - A561984

FlashForward: A561984
(S01E10)
I knew FlashForward was headed toward a hiatus, but I didn't expect it to be here so soon. Thankfully, this was one of the best episodes of the season so far, pushing things dramatically forward for most of the characters and the blackout mystery, as well. We also gained more insight, and thus more confusion, about Simon and his motives.

There won't be any new episodes until March 2010, which coincidentally (or more likely, not coincidentally) is when Demetri is supposed to die, according to the Persian woman on the phone. When the show returns, will its internal continuity have jumped forward three months, as well? I have a feeling it will.

I think more may have happened in this hour than has happened in the last seven or eight episodes. Let's dig into it.

Review: FlashForward - Believe

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 20th 2009 11:49AM
Takeuchi Yuko(S01E09) I've thought since the beginning that Bryce was more one of the more intriguing characters on the series. The fact that he was on the verge of suicide when he had his flashforward was indicative of some deeper hurts that we hadn't explored yet, but this week he finally got his due. We also got to meet the mystery woman from his vision, and now his sketches.

I've also realized that a lot of you are right about one thing. The character of Mark Benford isn't working for me anymore. He's a dick through and through, and he absolutely proved that this week in how he handled trying to track down some information.

In fact, even though Olivia's a little better than Mark, I'd say the "first family" of FlashForward are the two least likable or interesting characters on the show. I think the drama may have been better served by having Mark die in Al's place a couple of weeks ago.

Review: FlashForward - Playing Cards With Coyote

FlashForward: Playing Cards With Coyote(S01E08) You mean I'm going to have to start paying attention to this show? What do they think they are ... Lost or something? Yes, I made sure to mention Lost in my article about FlashForward, and yes I did it because I know it bothers some of you. I'm a bastard that way.

There was a lot of forward motion in a lot of important ways. Last week's Al-dying, Tracy-returning finale was a huge set-up for the next few weeks' worth of story. As expected, Al's death became big news when Celia went public with the letter he'd sent to her (so I guess that means the FBI found her?). But it was Tracy's return that added layers to the complex onion we're trying to peel here.

In the middle of it all, we got to contemplate the significance of what bra Olivia might choose to wear in the future. See, everything's important!

Review: FlashForward - The Gift

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 6th 2009 3:00AM
Lee Thompson Young(S01E07) You know, even without Dominic Monaghan appearing (save for one scene), this episode really captured my attention. There was some further development in the blue hand case, but for the most part it was about the people of the cast and how they're dealing with their lives at this point between the blackouts and the time of their visions.

Since the beginning, I've been waiting to find some confirmation as to whether these were inevitable futures, or just possible futures. And every week, I got more and more proof that it just seems like they're racing toward these inevitable destinies. Even the contradicting visions, like Zoey's vision of her wedding with Demetri, and his lack-of-vision left room for interpretation: she was a bit away from him on that beach.

But really, this episode was about Al Gough. We finally got to see the rest of his vision, and it's a doozy. Plus, Fiona showed up in the Los Angeles office, where she and Al meet again ... for the first time.

Review: FlashForward - Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 30th 2009 8:31AM
FlashForward: Scary Monsters and Super Creeps(S01E06) Some big revelations this week, both in the flashforwards case, as well as in the situation at the Benford household. In fact, it was at the Benford household that it went down. I was also very proud of the writers for choosing a more challenging route for Mark's character than the tired cliches we've come to expect.

We also got the first encounter between Lloyd Simcoe's son and the Benford daughter, Charlie, and so many things became more clear. A couple more flashforwards to round out the hour and I'm still happy with the series.

And speaking of Charlies, those who've been waiting all season for Dominic Monaghan to finally get down and dirty as a series regular on this little show need wait no loner. His name was even right there in the opening credits under 'Starring.'

Review: FlashForward - Gimme Some Truth

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 23rd 2009 4:02AM
Peter Coyote, Courtney B. Vance (FlashForward)(S01E05) FlashForward took us to Washington, DC to see the political ramifications of the blackouts, as well as some of the maneuverings that the city is made of, at least in this reality. Also in this reality, Peter Coyote is President. I've always liked him, and I like how he plays the characters as a very regular and relatable guy.

We were introduced to a new character in Senator Joyce Clemente (Barbara Williams), and she's definitely set up to be a major thorn in the side of the ongoing investigation. There was always something a little wacky about the LA office taking Mark's vision and building an entire investigative force around it just because they felt like it. And now, they have to face the music and justify their very existence.

It made for some pretty intense television. That and the bullets flying at the heads of our intrepid heroes.
