We’ve seen a lot of different Femme Fatales over the course of the series, and this one is no different. She is a beautiful, seductive, highly trained assassin, who is probably bad luck to anyone she meets. This episodes starts with just such a meeting. We get to witness Davis (Mark Simich) and Lauren (Mirtha Michelle) as Davis and Lauren meet, admiring the art and each other. I was kind of hoping for a tango to break out and True Lies inspired action to unfold, but then they had sex. Which is still good.
As the sophomore season’s 4th episode begins we bear witness to sexy college professor Kelsey Williams (Sandra McCoy) in her class room, alone, at night. She is watching a slide show of what appears to be turn of the century erotic images, and erotic she does feel. By the one minute mark of the episode she has begun pleasuring herself when she is abruptly interrupted (Boooo) by a suspicious looking Security Guard. As fate would have it said night watchman explains to the good professor that there was an attack on campus earlier, and though the young coed escaped, her attacker remains still un-apprehended. For what is surely her safety, he proceeds to relay the description to the attacker to Ms. Williams.
Trophy Wife is the classic story of a rich housewife, her cheating husband, and the hitman she hires to widow her. In this case the hitman is a dirty ex-cop named Darby (Chris Mulkey – First Blood!!!), and the housewife Veronica (Leilani Sarelle AKA Roxy from Basic Instinct) is very specific about how the job has to be done. The episode opens in a strip club, which is obviously the best place to pick up a hitman. I’ll file that away for future notice.
Gun Twisted tells the most classic of all noir stories – the ‘innocent’ and beautiful woman seduces some poor schmuck into carrying out her plan, and afterward, well, he’s just not needed anymore. In this case, our sap is played by Antonio Sabato Jr., who for almost the entirety of the episode thinks that he’s in control. This is of course the plan the of Laurie (Diana Gettinger) as she draws his eye at the gun range, playing the part of the novice shooter.
May 25th kicked off the start of the sophomore season for the anthology series Femme Fatales. When last season closed, we were treated to a two-part finale (Visions Part 1 and Part 2) that tied together several episodes, and also dropped some hints about the background of Lilith. As season 2 begins however, all of that stuff is put on the back burner as we start the cycle of new characters all over.
A couple weeks ago we showed you 2 trailers for the impending second season of Femme Fatales, which premieres tonight on Cinemax. So to get everyone ready, we’ve got some more stuff now. This includes a sneak peak and several interviews with some of the people involved, including such beauties as Nikki Griffin and Madison Dylan. Check it out, and then watch the show tonight. Also, a lot of people who have HBO may also have Cinemax and not even know about it, so double check.
Our friends over at Femme Fatales are ramping up for a 2nd season and they’ve got some trailers out. We showed you the preliminary one from 2011’s Comic Con a while back, but these ones are full of new footage and more Lilith!
As the first season came to a close last night I was saddened to realize that we won’t be seeing anymore Lilith for a while. Sure we know she’ll be back, and the season 2 trailer looks awesome, I’m gonna have to live without my weekly fix. Anyhow, as I said before, last night’s Visions Pt. II was the season finale, and it delivered.
If you missed ‘Visions Pt. I’, Click Here, we’ll wait…
For the last few months we talked a lot about the new Cinemax show Femme Fatales, and it’s become a pretty popular topic around here. So, with the season finale airing this Friday, we thought it might be nice to talk to the brain-trust behind the series. So what follows is my talk with show creators Mark A. Altman and Steve Kriozere.
Meet Foster Prentiss, the Amazing Mysterium, an eyeliner wearing scum bag in the city of Cuesta Verde who spends his nights duping the shit out of audiences with his smoking hot assistant. See, Mister Prentiss simply pickpockets the person and reads their license out loud, joking around after the person in the audience wouldn’t tell him his name. Through a two-way radio, Foster’s assistant has already looked up all of the audience member’s information from the license information and assists Prentiss in duping the viewers attending the show. What a douche!
