The Expanse 3×02 | Reviews

UPDATE (April 22): we added just a small comment about Anna at the end of the page.

***

We found some nice reviews with great comments about Elizabeth and Anna. 😀

We also made this wall with the best lines from them because well… we are so proud of this woman! <3

Reverend Anna: Giver of few craps

Elizabeth Mitchell is by far the best part of this episode. She comes onto the scene and almost instantly starts knocking heads around, first with a UN security worker, then later with the Secretary-General, and finally, and most importantly with Errinwright.

Honestly, everyone should be verbally smacking Errinwright around, but it’s just that much more satisfying that it’s Elizabeth Mitchell doing it.

The title, “IFF,” also brilliantly addresses the compelling theme of identifying of friend or foe, whether among Holden’s arguing crew, between the Pinus Contorta and the Razorback, or even with the new character played by Elizabeth Mitchell, who challenges Errinwright for the attention of the UN leader at a crucial time.

Mitchell is, in fact, perfectly cast as Anna Volovodov, or Pastor Anna as readers of the James S.A. Corey novels know her, even though her appearance, character, and history appear to be quite different here. Mitchell’s ability to smile with equal amounts endearment and menace and to combine wide-eyed disbelief with a strength of resolve are perfect for this role in which Anna must place a moral and religious framework around the UN war and the origins of the protomolecule. The softer side she shows her wife and daughter and the hard edge revealed by her past as the Secretary General’s speechwriter create a complex character from the very start.

Dan of geek

I already like Anna solely based on the two minutes she’s been on my screen. She’s assertive, but not maliciously so. Her compassion and intellect is evident.

Also, the addition of Anna and the always superb Mitchell was an A+ choice.

The Expanse 3×02 Review

We found a nice review about The Expanse 3×02 and this is the part about Anna and Elizabeth:

We spend most of our time on Earth seeing things through Anna’s eyes, and she’s an immediate, and welcome, addition to the cast. Part of this is because it’s a relief to have someone who’s not a corrupt asshole facing off against Errinwright (not that Esteban is necessarily as much of a monster as Errinwright is, but he’s compromised at the very least); the first time we see Anna, she’s intervening in a near riot and insisting that protester get his broken arm treated. It’s always possible that her principles will serve as an obstacle later on, but for now, it’s just good to see someone who actually believes in being a decent, caring human being.

The other reason Anna is so welcome is Elizabeth Mitchell. Mitchell’s obvious warmth and intelligence helped make her turn as Juliet so indelible on Lost—that she can be idealistic but never come across as foolish or predictable is a great gift, and she fits right in with the cast as it currently stands.

The author of this review also wrote a nice message on twitter:

Had completely forgotten Elizabeth Mitchell was on this season of The Expanse, and am _very_ happy to see her.

We just want to say that the fans of the show are giving a nice welcome and a very positive reaction to the introduction of Anna and especially to Elizabeth, which makes us really happy, because this woman deserves all the love the world is capable to give her. <3

15 Times Once Upon a Time Broke Our Hearts

TV Guide posted a video about 15 Times Once Upon a Time Broke Our Hearts.

Guess who made into the list?

Yes, Ingrid!

We couldn’t be more proud to see that even if she was only a recurring character for a half season (and they are 7 seasons), her death is considered one of 15 moments in which the show broke its audience’s heart. It definitely broke ours! We’ve just watched that clip again and it still hurts and we can only blame Elizabeth’s talent. Ingrid’s portrait is one of her finest performances.

Anyway this is the TV Guide clip (the one with Liz only)

In case you want to watch all the 15 moments, you can see the entire video in our archive.

20 cancelled TV shows that are ripe for revival on Netflix or Amazon Prime

Who wouldn’t love to have Erica Evans back on screen?

v-1x09_elizabeth_mitchell_28129.jpgYour favourite TV show has finished, and there’s nothing you can do about it. No matter how many angry Tweets you posted, the show was cancelled before the main story arc concluded. You’re furious, you’re sad, but nothing is going to bring back your (TV) baby. Well, maybe not nothing… Almost every cancellation is immediately followed by a ‘bring it back on Netflix’ petition (and Dredd, always Dredd). Fuelled by the fact that it has happened – look at programs like Gilmore Girls and Arrested Development, brought back from the dead thanks to fan demand. Licensing and logistics might not always be on our side, whether it’s an ageing cast or well guarded license, but we can dream can’t we? And some of these might actually happen (Hannibal increasing seems like a matter of time, for example). So here are our top picks for TV shows that Netflix (or indeed anyone) has to bring back.

The TV show: We’re talking the reboot, not the original one, that would make this a revival of a remake. Semantics, bah! Described as a “reimagining” of the ’80s version, the series follows the experiences of FBI agent Erica (played by Lost’s Elizabeth Mitchell) as she attempts to figure out what a supposedly friendly alien race who call themselves Visitors really want with Earth. Can you see where it’s headed?

Why Netflix needs to bring it back: That ending. Things were left unresolved but with a distinct “everything’s going to hell” type of vibe for Earth. This definitely irked fans who would have enjoyed seeing Erica kick serious extraterrestrial butt.

TV’s Most Stunning Makeup-Free Leading Ladies

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Revolution_2x22_04.JPGE! wrote an article about the tv’s most stunning makeup-free leading ladies. Elizabeth obviously made into the list of 11 actresses who are beautiful even without makeup. The piece is from 2014 when Revolution was on air, but we’ve just found it so… 😛

In a world obsessed with beauty and finding out what celebrities look like when they don’t feel like slathering extra beauty on their faces, it’s always a treat to find a TV actress who appears on our screens every week without a stitch of (noticeable) make-up on.

We’ve rounded up some of TV’s brightest, barest, and beautiful-est faces to bring you a gallery of people you should totally ask next time you have a skin care question, because they seem to have all of the answers (and they’re all so very accessible). 

Elizabeth Mitchell, Revolution: You don’t need electricity for beautiful skin.

E!

Nice Mention

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Once_Upon_A_Time_Oct_22_set_003.jpgNatalie Abrams (EW) posted this nice comment about Elizabeth and a report from when she was on OUAT set. 😀

Q: Who are some of your all-time favorite stars?
A: Elizabeth Mitchell is definitely up there. She’s always been super kind to me.

Q: What is your favorite set to visit? Any funny stories?
A: Visiting the Once Upon a Time set has always felt very special. I’ve been up to the Vancouver-based set every season so far. I’ve been to Steveston, a.k.a Storybrooke, a few times. One particularly fun time was being there for the end of the Snow Queen storyline. Elizabeth Mitchell and I got out of transpo van and the fake snow started coming down. It was totally magical. But then it started raining and it was just wet and cold. Haha. I also went to the Lost set during the final season, which was a fun experience traveling out to Hawaii for the first time ever.
