A Cable For You…

February 17, 2013 by James Riley

My father predicted the death of newspapers sometime around 1978 or so.   I was a senior in high school, wondering about professions.  He made this casual observation: “I would steer my kids out of the newspaper business, because my guess is it will be dead in a decade or two.” That prediction of his […]

It’s no secret that we charged head-long into the television business because we hate the current gate-keepers and […]

December 4, 2012 by James Riley

Final Cuts: Wilson: But when Laud’s talking, Silas and Noah are just sorta standing there. Doing nothing. Riley: Right.  Let’s stay on Laud.  Do you think we should cut it down? Wilson: What?  The whole scene?  No.  It’s fine.  I’d cut down that scene by the stream though. Riley: Um… I know that one’s a […]

The King’s Church

September 24, 2012 by James Riley

If you’ve been following Courage, you’ve been watching the exploits of one Reverend “Silence Laud,” marvelously portrayed by Rutgers-educated actor Donal Thoms-Cappello.   Quite a few fans have demanded this particular villain receive some heavy measure of justice, and one fan has even detailed the precise methods of retribution, many of which I cannot share […]
