Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4 Review: A Prayer for Our Daughters

28 July 2016 2:51 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

This is starting to be down right Shakespearean.

Molly roamed the palace doing her best impression of Ophelia on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4, while Leila revealed that Jamal wasn't Ahmed's real father, but rather his uncle.

Sammy went looking for love in all the wrong places, and Barry was too busy planning revenge to deal with his family.

And as often happens in Shakespeare, vengeance doesn't lead to anything good. Mainly, it ends with everybody dying. And the Al Fayeed clan is already half gone. I wasn't too worried about Molly even before I saw the previews – the deaths have to slow down or there won't be any characters left.

Jennifer Finnigan did an amazing job of portraying a mother's grief. Where a great performance can sometimes be credited equally to the writing team, or the director, this was all her. The most powerful moments weren't because of her lines, »

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Spring

7 July 2016 2:55 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

New characters, new democracy, same old Abuddin.

Jamal's recovery might have been the final shocker of Tyrant Season 3 Episode 1, but it was far from the only one.

Prisoner exchanges, faked suicides, and resignation announcements all shook up the political minefield that is Abbudin. Who will end up in power is anybody's guess.

The season premiere introduced us to a few new characters, which only makes sense when you think about how many died in Tyrant Season 2. In the fight for Abuddin, everybody is power hungry, so Barry better watch his back. Aziz (the previously unseen butler) has already declared an alliance with Leila in the most disturbing way.

If he's willing to have Nusrat, another member of the royal first family, killed to help his "madame," who knows what else he's willing to do?

What was especially tragic to me about Nusrat's death is that »

Why Aziz Ansari’s Dad Could Be the Surprise Emmy Nominee of 2016 (Really)

30 June 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sitting in an overflow room at the Paley Center for Media, a thought struck me: “What if Shoukath Ansari wins an Emmy for ‘Master of None’?”

The thought wasn’t entirely baseless — Shoukath, the father of Aziz Ansari, certainly warrants the praise for his hysterical, honest and empathetic turn — nor was it unprompted. Netflix was holding its official For Your Consideration event for “Master of None,” and the event attracted so many people that a substantial chunk of us couldn’t even fit in the main theatre. We had to move to a backroom with a television displaying first the episode being screened and then a conversation between creators Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, producer Michael Schur and cast members Lena Waithe and Kelvin Yu.

Clearly, there’s a fervor surrounding this show — and a devout fan base for the senior Ansari family member, as well. His debut in the »

Noel Wells Talks ‘Master of None’ Episode ‘Mornings’ and Idea-Jamming with Aziz Ansari

8 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Netflix comedy “Master of None” took a lot of people by surprise, but co-star Noël Wells knew she was involved with something special. The relationship between Wells’ character Rachel and Aziz Ansari’s Dev became the heart of the first season, and they anchored a pair of memorable two-handers: the first date episode “Nashville” and the bittersweet penultimate installment “Mornings.” Her creative collaboration with Ansari and co-creator Alan Yang emboldened the actress-writer-director, who recently wrapped her feature helming debut.

Master of None” (Netflix)

Season 1 ep. 9, “Mornings”

Written by Aziz Ansari & Alan Yang; directed by Eric Wareheim

Noel Wells: “I had been auditioning for a lot of things where I didn’t understand the point of the character. This was two people who were on equal footing having fun conversations.

“Through shooting [Aziz and I] revised the scripts so they got even better as time went on. We would take the scenario »
