How The Latest Season of 'New Girl' Went Downhill

8 April 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Television scientists long ago identified a particularly nefarious disorder that affects series predicated on romantic tension between its protagonists. Irritable sitcom syndrome, commonly known as "Moonlighting" disease, is a neuralgia that preys on TV shows that have chosen to settle, once and for all, the fraught issue of "will they or won’t they?" The disease is named after “Moonlighting,” the charming comic detective series whose prickly heat stemmed from the love-hate relationship between Cybill Shepherd’s Maddie and Bruce Willis’ David, and rapidly cooled once the two bickering partners became a couple. Given the circumstances, it would only be too easy to identify Fox’s “New Girl” as having come down with an inoperable case of “Moonlighting” disease and rest assured of our diagnosis. After all, the first two seasons of the show had toyed with the prospect of a relationship between Zooey Deschanel’s Jess and Jake Johnson’s Nick, »

Moonlighting box set review

3 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis are a witty, sparky, properly grown-up twosome in a sublimely funny private eye spoof

Are they the best TV couple of all time? From the mid to the late 1980s, the world looked on in delight as Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis fought, made up, fought some more, had amusingly rambling conversations, and then fell in love, sort of, while solving mysteries along the way.

Shepherd plays uptight ex-model Maddie Hayes, who owns the Blue Moon detective agency. Willis is David Addison, the charming stumblebum who runs it for her. With its snappy repartee, its playful riffs on private eye cliches and its couple who love to hate to love each other, Moonlighting harks back to Hollywood's golden age, the era of film noir and screwball comedies. And yet, ironically, it was to prove hugely influential on the future of TV. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Kelly & Cal’

7 March 2014 9:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The inspired match-up of underserved veteran Juliette Lewis and breakout newcomer Jonny Weston powers “Kelly & Cal,” a warmly observed tale of two outcasts bonding in stifling suburbia. With the sort of relaxed charm that marked the early work of Nicole Holofcener, this disarming pic navigates tricky emotional territory to emerge as an impressive feature debut for helmer Jen McGowan and scribe Amy Lowe Starbin. It deserves a little TLC from a thoughtful distrib able to spotlight the worthy work both in front of and behind the camera.

We meet Kelly (Lewis) just six weeks after she’s given birth to her first child, Jackson. Suffering from a mild case of postpartum depression, she feels disconnected from her newborn, her emotionally distant husband, Josh (Josh Hopkins), and the cozy but utterly foreign suburban neighborhood they’ve recently moved to. It’s not until mischievous teen Cal (Weston) tries to bum a »

Cracked the Case: The Top 10 Oddball TV Detective Duos

28 January 2014 10:04 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

One of the most enduring genres in television is the buddy cop drama, often benefiting from the comedic and/or dramatic tension caused by the disparate characters' interactions. Reelz's police-drama Cracked is no exception, even if it offers a new twist on the genre.

Currently airing its second season, Detective Aidan Black (David Sutcliffe) has a new partner in Dr. Clara Malone (Brooke Nevin), a psychiatrist that helps Black through his post-traumatic stress disorder while they solve cases for the newly-formed Psych Crimes and Crisis Unit. A cop and a psychiatrist are an unusual pairing for a police drama, which got us thinking: what are the oddest TV detective duos of all time? Check out our Top Ten.
